Dice needs to go all pokemaster and catch all 300.

And now I want Pokemon Sun/Moon to feature "300 New Pokemon," and it's all different colors of the same Pokemon.

LBW is probably Item Shop Dude (forget his name) and Palette Swap Zelda (okay, maybe LBW was more forgettable than I care to admit)

Also, I understand "Souls" is considered by some to be a genre and I think that really undermines the integrity of some games, this being one. Its a damn shame this game will never be looked at as something other than 2D Souls when it is clearly its own beast. I never picked up Suikoden and said "Gee, here is another Final Fantasy-like title" (point).

Would help if games like this didn't outright copy the Souls UI.

Tomara, you should get your own place and then fill a closet completely full of crocheted jellyfish, so that if anyone opens the closet they get buried in crocheted jellyfish.

"playfully" raped

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....... >________>

As in: No, it's totally not rape. Except it kind of absolutely is.

As for your other point, I do think there's an element of tact necessary for throwing fanservice in a game that is more than just the fanservice. For what its worth, Hyperdevotion Noire is a genuinely good tactical RPG, featuring 20+ characters that all feel useful in their own unique ways.

I don't know, I find it hard to put into words where I draw the line. But I do find it is important to draw a line even if you're a fan of that particular niche to keep yourself level-headed and open-minded.

Okay, so the fanservice in Hyperdevotion Noire has gone from cute and silly to just a bit creepy. Got to Chapter 7 and two of the side cutscenes so far have included Noire getting "playfully" raped by one of her generals and another where she admits to having a sex dream about the faceless player agent with very little subtelty. Outside of a hentai game and with that "just for fun" presentation, they both seemed out of place and inappropriate. It sucks, because I've really enjoyed the game up to this point but those two scenes soured the whole experience a bit.

And yes, I know. Cue one of Aeolus' "Compile Factory" rants, but I've always felt the HD Neptunia games have been good and fair at poking fun at their own fanservice while never crossing the line of being creepy (not including their promotional material, which is another discussion altogether, and beside the point)

Its motion controls all over again, except even worse. At least with motion controls, everyone was responding to the proven success of the Wii. Here, VR hasn't even been proven as a viable business venture and every tech company under the sun is rushing to enter the ring.

I think she means another single-game dedicated thread type Game Journal.  Always a fan of your writing, Dice, so I'd be excited by the idea (given it's a game I've played/have no intention of playing)

I'm thinking of doing one myself for Trillion given the Princess Maker elements it seems to have in training your Overlord. Will have to play a few hours first when it comes out to see if I'm able to make something entertaining out of it, though.

Was feeling really happy and excited most of the day and now tonight I seem to have had an emotional crash. Feeling really crappy about myself out of nowhere.

Human brains suck.

There's always a handful of articles every year about how DST has outlived any benefits it was introduced for and instead causes more problems (genuine problems, not just inconveniences) than int actually solves. Couldn't agree more with the sentiment. DST is a concept that never should have been a thing in the first place, except maybe for the two years it was first implemented (and then repealed, and then implemented again 50 years later)

Man, the DST transition really kicked my ass this time around... It was so damn hard to get out of bed this morning... Been tired all day today. Usually, it doesn't affect me so much. Must be a part of getting older (awesome!). On the upside, it'll certainly be very nice to have more sunlight after work.

Agreed, though I also seem to be catching a cold so that probably didn't help the process at all.

Good call on the cooking thing, Dice. I'll add that to my list, too.

It's like, do I have 45 minutes to make a decent meal? Yeah, probably.
Do I have another 30 minutes to clean up after a decent meal? Fuck no.

Been hitting some walls lately in Hyperdevotion Noire, which kind of sucks because I was doing really well getting through one story mission and any new side missions each day. Now I might have to spend some time grinding for exp, which is tough since the exp of every mission goes way down after initial completion. Might have to focus on building Lily Ranks and working on Personal Missions to build up stats. The good news is I can finish a mission worth 50,000 Credits in two turns now, so money won't ever really be an issue. Shame the game doesn't have a Rare Candy equivalent for sale.

Thanks, Din!

That was my confusion. Wasn't sure if it was pronounced with a double-s sound and then "hai" or if the sh sound was indeed correct.

Speaking of sociopolitical issues, while I thought the game was fun enough while I played it, I've never had a desire to revisit Final Fantasy Tactics.

Y'know, so we can maybe steer the conversation away from a topic that can't help but be a ticking time bomb on any forum.
