Was feeling vulnerable today, and vulnerability equals impulse buying for me. Thus I bought the new Atelier despite having not played through the other 4 Atelier games I have. Feeling really silly about that.

Getting ready to leave for my first interview of two this week. I haven't worn a belt in months and it's no wonder as I sit here feeling like I'm going to puke from the pressure on my stomach. The good news is I'm not that nervous about my interview. The bad news is it's because I'm no fixated on what I'm going to do about this sudden weight gain.

Made it to the Calm Lands yesterday, been trying to do the initial side quests there. Finally found the 9th enemy for the Arena after an hour of having 8/9. It turned out to be the Anacondour that I was missing. Anyway, next is Remiem temple before I move on to Gagazet.

@Dice: Completely agree about FF9, getting the final weapons in that game is a joke.

And yeah, the FFX series is notorious for tough mini-games for the best stuff. Every time I think about replaying FFX-2 the first thing that comes to mind is how I'll have to calibrate lightning towers again >.<

In regards to weapon combos: I have yet to see a point in the game where you need all weapons of the same type. Sometimes I'll switch the weapon type weakness to the first slot and just hit them with the first attack repeatedly, but most of the time you're not wasting that much time or stamina just keeping your weapon types varied.

Tried the Conception 2 demo, certainly still not interested in the game. Tried out Crusader in Diablo 3, but only for a half hour or so, and liked it well enough. Made it to chapter 2 in Witch & The Hundred Knight. Still really liking that one, Metallia is one of the most disturbing video game characters since Albedo.

I've had no interest in the Oculus Rift whatsoever, so I don't have any sort of investment in the news other than a source of entertainment as I watch the outrage explode all over the Interwebs.

Question:
They also have their anime segment, but how they make money there I'll never know.
Answer:
They're so ridiculously overpriced.

Don't forget some otaku/weaboos/whatever-kids-are-saying-these-days will buy anything.

So played a little bit and I have to say I'm kind of adoring it. I've been looking for a good action rogue-like, and the game certainly delivers. I'm actually thankful that the rogue-like elements are pretty forgiving. The game has a meter that limits your actions before needing to return to your base, but despite the game's constant warnings, there seem to be plenty of options for recovering the so-called GCals.

The graphics aren't really anything to write home about, but the music is pretty phenomenal and goes perfectly with the "silly but twisted" vibe the game has. Same with the writing, which isn't nearly as cringe-inducing as I was expecting. I actually find the dialogue even more charming than some of the better Disgaea titles.

I haven't read any reviews on the game, and if it is reviewing pretty badly, then I'm glad I decided to form my own opinion before looking at what other people thought.

I don't suppose the remake includes the $90 worth of DLC the game eventually had?

Getting ever closer to the end of Tales of Xillia. Just made it to Elympios (I know this is stupid, but I hate that some people pronounce it 'Olympus' even though the spelling is so different). I was originally determined to only play the game once, but the events of Chapter 3 and 4 have me questioning that. Maybe I'll be able to easily find the Jude-only scenes on YT.

Quick question about early chapter 4... does picking one path over another of the 3 available paths change anything, particularly side quests?
342  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Witch and the Hundred Knights on: March 24, 2014, 09:18:05 PM
I much prefer regular folks' opinions over professional reviews. Nothing against professional reviews, I just think it's important to remember the kinds of constraints professionals have to play a game under for a review.

@Klutz64: You should probably spoiler that.  I remember having a little trouble on it too, but I think I just kept my distance and only attacked when there was an opening.  Then I would move back, dodging/defending when necessary and repeat the process.  Don't forget about the new artes you get at the start of that chapter.

That's what I ended up doing, just spamming the water arte over and over to counter her attacks. Also upgraded my equipment which really helped even though it was only a single tier--I absolutely hate the shop system and how hard it is to determine what is the "appropriate" equipment at any given point in the game--I still had to use a couple of elixers, but I still managed to get past the battle.

Okay question for Milla's storyline in Tales of Xilla...

Code:
How the hell is the battle with Muzet at the start of Chapter 4 not a scripted battle!? She kills me within 10 seconds, I don't even get much of a chance to deal any damage.

fucken anime hipster.

Adorable team!  I'm surprised "sea" is in the title given the amount of sand in the teaser.
And good find Solid!  I only heard word, and saw no images at all.

What if by 'sea' they mean both a sea of sand (desert, desert everywhere!) as well as a regular old water one? That could work. That could work very well actually.

Could also be a desert that USED to be a sea before everything went to hell.
