Like others, I'm not ashamed of what I play, and if I were why would I share it here?

There are games I consider "guilty pleasures" because of the reasons behind me enjoying them, but nothing I'm not open to admitting I play or have an actual "guilty" reaction for playing.

Traded in my original Ragnarok Odyssey for Ragnarok Odyssey Ace today. Kind of bummed you can't transfer characters (that I know of) so I started a new mage. Obviously haven't gotten to the new content, but a lot of the small convenience changes are pretty nice. I think that's what I like about Odyssey more than Monster Hunter: It's all about simplicity. No setting up camp or pressing an extra button to get loot from monsters. No harvesting or bug catching. Just grab a mission, spend five or ten minutes whacking monsters and scooping up their drops, rinse and repeat.

Is there an overarching story, or is it just get quest X and kill monster Y?

There's a "story," but it's basically "Giant monsters are breaking through this barrier and we need to stop them."

If I had the cash to spare, I would pick this up just to support similar projects. However, as I don't really have that kind of money to spare and I'm not really interested in the game itself, I suppose I'll have to trust you folks to show Ubisoft we want more stuff like this.

I'm actually thinking of getting Mario Kart 8 for something my mom and I can play together.

Hey, remember when we were still talking about The Last Guardian like it was actually a thing?

You talk like Lulu's Fury overdrive is useful.

I wasn't going to participate in these shenanigans, but then posting about Tales of Xillia in the Game Journal reminded me that Leia is the best. Just the absolute best.

EDIT: Also Edea, naturally.

Just finished the Miasma dungeon in ToX. Dare I say that the dungeon was--wait for it--mildly interesting. If only the rest of the dungeons were at least that interesting to navigate. Finally got all my shops to lvl 80. I have a feeling the last 20 levels are going to be a nightmare.

I do enjoy the writing in the game, it certainly is on par with the writing in past titles. I especially like the one-time Not-a-skit dialogue bits that play on their own (not to be confused with the same ones that you hear 50 billion times) I just heard the 500,000 gald one, and it got a chortle out of me.

I wonder if anyone on team FFX ever commented on why they went with 7 characters and 6 roles.

I've been dabbling Khimari in a bit of everyone's path on the Expert sphere grid, just moving him in sort of an outward spiral (of death).

Wasted so much time in FFX today. I don't remember it being this difficult to get a No Encounters piece of armor. Started out farming Ghosts in the Cave of the Stolen Fayth, but you get maybe one Ghost every 15 battles. So I started stealing Purifying Salt in the Zanarkand Dome, but that was taking way too long, so I tried to find a Wraith in the Sea of Sorrow with no luck. Ugh.

But at least I made some good progress in Tales of Xillia, so it wasn't a completely wasted day. On the final dungeon at this point, just cleaning up side quests and getting a few more titles in case I decide to play through the game as Jude at some point.

Except that I slipped into Dutch for a second. 'Miljoen'? Seriously, Tomara? Dutch isn't even that suitable for angry rants...

I remember there was an interview after Type-0 came out where they admitted they didn't really start working on it until two years after the first trailer.  It was just a vague concept up until that point.  It's not really clear what the situation with XV was when it was first announced, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was similar...

XV is now basically announced-but-never-actually-made Final Fantasy XIII Versus-stuff with a different title, so I suppose they're a little further along than usual. There was some actual gameplay in the latest trailers. Of course, this doesn't mean the game is anywhere near complete, but atleast they seem to have passed the 'here's some fancy smancy FMV, we'll attach and actual game to it someday' phase.

Which isn't actually all that hard when the skeleton of the game has been development hell for 5+ years <_<

Unlike KH3 where any idiot could see the "gameplay" bits were just empty shells slapped together quickly for the sake of a trailer.

Thanks for the tips. I had a feeling it was a case of needing equipment drops from a new area in order to stand a chance in that area. Anyway, had a somewhat decent run going before succumbing to the random shutdown. REALLY hope there's a patch in the works for that

Oh wow. Like WOW. Like OMFG WOW

I finally played a little more. Started Chapter 2. OH HAI DIFFICULTY CLIFF

I was excited by chapter 1 because I thought it would finally be something pretty easy to play in between bouts of more difficult games. What the actual fuck game?

I don't even understand what I'm doing wrong but I've had to return to base after losing any items I've collected far too many times after only reaching the first pillar. I can't avoid attacks because there's too much going on in too small a space to pay attention and enemy damage has gone from 1-4 per attack to 10-15 per attack.

Ugh. I can't stand when games do this kind of shit.

I am dieing for new media on the game. I neeed it in my veins now. Talking about FF XV

I still think FFXV is going to be the first numbered FF I skip. We barely know anything about it and I already hate Noctis and his pre-game super powers.
