I certainly have no qualms with how anyone chooses to enjoy their MMOs. But I personally feel like if I have to submit an application to play a game something has gone horribly wrong.

That .gif is so overused, but it's so appropriate for this saga at this point.

Finally beat Eternal Sonata. Just as equal parts fun and frustrating as I remember it, although there were less changes in the PS3 version than I thought there would be. Though the improved visuals were certainly nice.
My final party for Mysterious Unison was Jazz, Serenade, and Viola. Jazz because I just shove him in the enemy's face since he can eat just about any attack. Serenade because she's an absolute beast once she learns Throne of Thorns (and a decent healer to boot) and Viola because she will always be my favorite character in the game. I mean, aside from her completely unfounded and only-mentioned-once involvement in the Jazz love parade.


Also, Klyde was correct about FFIV:CC, and oddly enough I was literally on the edge of the point where the game goes from mysteriously difficult to surprisingly easier then the original.

I just noticed your PSN name is in your signature and I do not believe you are on my friend's list. This must be rectified. Probably tomorrow.

Rather sudden

Lightning Returns takes place 500 years after FFXIII-2.

Tried it out this morning, am a little concerned though about healing in the game. Being as you don't get full health back after battles, no healing spells, and only 5 slots for recovery items, I see certain death and alot of it....unless these are demo limitations?

I'm sure there will be ways to expand your inventory in the game. Also, the game does feature an Easy mode where health will regenerate between battles.
337  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, The Last 13 Days on: January 23, 2014, 10:06:36 AM
So I played the demo.


It's kind of boring gameplay wise. Tries too hard to be a FF game and an action game.

The only thing I didn't really like about the gameplay was the discrepancy between normal battles and boss battles. It takes 2 seconds to down an enemy and 5-10 minutes to take down a boss. Although, according to reviews I read, it sounds like the demo is basically the beginning of the game (which doesn't explain the timer in the demo saying "06 days left") so hopefully normal battles become a little tougher and boss battles become less about whittling away at a massive damage sponge.

There should probably be a universal term for Weight of the Land at this point, but I've heard "weights," "pools," "plumes" and "WOTL." I always know what folks are talking about, I'm just surprised there's still so many different things people  refer to it as.
339  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: January 22, 2014, 09:52:37 AM
^ I don't recall ever having one, but I know exactly what you're talking about, so maybe...? I dunno.

I think I'm going to pick up The Witch and the Hundred Knight. NIS stuff is usually more miss than hit, but the game looks fun enough and after Bravely Default and FFX/X-2 HD I'll be in the mood for an action-y action RPG.

Tried to watch Agents of SHIELD again tonight. Overall, its terrible. Give it a cable network like HBO, a good budget and some balls. Then maybe we can get a decent comic book show. What a waste.

I enjoy it, but then I don't really see it as a "comic book show." More like yet another crime drama but with a Marvel coat of paint.
========================

Caught the reboot of Powerpuff Girls last night. It was actually quite entertaining, and still has the charm of the original show. I know not everyone is going to agree, but I liked the new animation style; it works well with the show and gives it a fresh new look without detracting from the original designs. Certainly going to keep watching to see if it can gain any momentum.
341  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, The Last 13 Days on: January 21, 2014, 11:04:34 AM
Oh God, this is a quandary. I really want to go into this game completely fresh, but the opportunity to get a taste of the game is *really* tempting. I'll download it any way for the DLC, but whether or not I'll play it is a question I'm going to be mulling over all day now.
342  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: January 21, 2014, 11:00:44 AM
Glad to hear you weren't disappointed, Grim. I would've felt bad egging you on to keep going if you were.


Progress in Eternal Sonata has slowed down to a crawl. I'm on Double Reed Tower, but I just don't like playing only one game anymore. I think I need to accept that my gaming habits are different from a lot of other people's and stop worrying about getting through my backlog. Because clearly I'm happiest when I play a little bit of several different games here and there as opposed to just binging on one until I finish it.
343  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Misc. Gaming News Topic on: January 20, 2014, 09:55:07 PM
Ah, that's what everyone was talking about so mysteriously. I don't know what disgusts me more, the guy's behavior, or the fact that this mystery woman just kept going like this is a common conversation.
344  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: January 20, 2014, 09:46:41 PM
I didn't get very far in 1.0, is the Garuda battle theme the same? That kicks major ass. Some of the new dungeon themes are pretty cool too.

I was *really* angry that the Starlight Celebration theme only played in the very small "event areas" in the towns instead of throughout, that was a favorite of mine from 1.0

Also goddammit: http://i.imgur.com/D5sZInG.png

(Top of the curtains. That's tired very wrong).

Oh for god's sake...  I actually think this version is a practical joke of some kind.

The ol' Coke Classic trick?
I'd forgive 'em.
