Well this sucks... Witch and the Hundred Knight progress has been completely halted due to a seemingly unreachable switch in the second part of Chapter 4. Tried everything I could possibly think of with no luck. Looked around thinking maybe I was trying to use the wrong switch, but sure enough it was the only one around. I don't like these kinds of "puzzles" mostly because the "solution" is something stupid that the game failed to offer as a possibility.

I don't know why I'm so pissed off about people's knee-jerk reactions to someone from Square Enix saying something about DRM.

It just sickens me how little people think sometimes, shouting about how they're going to boycott Square Enix for making the comment when they barely even USE DRM. It seems to me like it was an out-of-context quote about some matter that doesn't even pertain to Square Enix. But of course mainstream gaming media only care about getting those reactions from their readers, so they post non-news stories like this just to rattle some cages.

Ugh. It's late and it's been a long day, I probably won't even care about this in the morning.

Just started thinking about my favorite TV series of all time, and felt like posting about in on here even though it's not a recent series and I haven't seen it in a long time. So, without further adieu...

Kings (2009)

The show only ran for one season, and I kind of blame NBC for giving it a time slot on Saturday night--a time slot where TV goes to die.

Anyway, the show takes place in a fictional world where society evolves at the same historical rate as our world except for government; monarchies have kept going until modern times, even in first world nations. The show follows one nation in particular and their ruler who is losing his people's faith by continuing to fail to end a war with a rival nation. In an attempt to rectify this, he befriends a young, popular war hero and gives him a role as an advisor. While the soldier in question continues to show up the king completely by accident, he never sees the king as anything more than a role model. The King, however, starts to see him as a threat and things get pretty intense. It's an awesome political drama if you're into that sort of thing, and packed full of amazing talent.

It's not available on Netflix (that I know of) but you can get it on Amazon Prime pretty cheap. I actually plan to rewatch it this summer when there's less shows that I follow on.

Also, I can't even think about the show without getting this song in my head:

It's time to stop using 15 year old games as the benchmark for bad voice acting.

Chaos Wars - NA Release Date, 2008

15 years huh? ;-P

Snark aside, very certain there's more recent examples if the year 2014 is contemporary enough for you. The entire game's just chalk full of bad VA but this timestamp I think captures the spirit of it. 'This' is bad voice acting of similar caliber. Conception II blows this out of the water.

I still hold that you can't judge components of a game based purely on the outliers of either extreme, especially on the side of bad. It's kind of a moot point though, because I don't believe the review called the voice acting bad so much as simply mismatched.

I do enjoy little trivia bits like that. Apparently in the original Cinderella, the titular character ends up with her evil stepmother after killing her real mother. Not sure the details there, but I do remember reading that somewhere.

As an addict of Twitter, I have to say I hate Raptr. Especially the ranks based on how much time you've put into a game versus the global average. That's just dumb. Because one person doesn't have as much time to put into gaming as someone else, it doesn't mean their achievements with that game are somehow inferior to another person with more time on their hands.

Witch and the Hundred Knight seems to be one of those games that I like a whole lot less when I'm not playing it. I was actually considering trading it in this morning, but then I start chapter 4 today and the music for the Ravine is fantastic, and the sudden chapter-start difficulty spikes seem to be gone, and you finally get a Tochka that's useful in battle.

Though I almost feel like I'm cheating with just how MUCH the third Facet increases Anima drops, even equipped as a sub-facet.

I know, I was just observing that all these MMO's including a "free trial" advertised as such is a bit of a misdirection.

Yeah, I think I can see how the 1-Track vs diversity thing would make one particularly more unbearable over the other. So far there hasn't been any other form of comedic attempts aside from said subject material. Honestly I can't really say if Conception II takes itself seriously or not simply because so far there's enough evidence for both sides to have a valid argument.

I completely agree with both this statement and Dice's comments. It's like I said earlier, the game takes itself just seriously enough and there's so little other content to keep the humor alive, that all the innuendos and skeevy comments make the game more creepy than silly.

Again, this isn't my being prude. I play plenty of JRPG's with lots of T&A and moe girls giggling about each other's boobs, and this game still managed to make me feel uncomfortable.

Saw this game in action today.

....I may have to re-budget some things.

I think folks are being a little too unfair to the reviewer. I'm all for fanservice and eye candy and whatnot, but from the demo I agree with the article, which isn't criticizing the presence of that stuff, but rather that the game tries too hard, doesn't really have the right tone to be more silly than creepy, and offers nothing else in return.

On an unrelated topic, anyone know what the third game the reviewer was referencing in the intro was?

Beards are becoming pretty common in Ireland lately for some reason. No idea where it suddenly came from. Makes me happy though. As someone who looks slightly less bad with a beard and older :(, I am happy to no longer stand out.

Post may contain bad grammararer. Never completely sure with things like less bad. Sounds wrong but at the same time, not as horrible as less worse. I could have used something different but I like having some self esteem. Actually, my whole post could be littered with poor grammar.

"not as bad" or in the case of your sentence "doesn't look quite as bad"

I love my cat, but I certainly think one cat is plenty. And yes, if you already have a pet I don't see why they would be encouraging you to get another one. I'd understand if you were acting lonely and depressed, but unless you're completely different off the forums, I don't really see that.
