Attack of the Friday Monsters

I was actually a bit let down by this game. It had been hyped up and the game didn't really seem to live up to it for me. Don't get me wrong, the game is fun and well worth the few euro it cost me but it also seemed to drag at parts. I think it would have made a much better movie than game.

No idea why someone would care if a complete stranger played on easy. At the end of the day, as long as they are having fun who cares. I like it when games allow you to change the difficulty mid game. You find Normal too easy? Just knock it up to hard. Too hard? You can change to easy.     

Dead Space.

Loving it so far. Bioshock is a lot more similar to System Shock 2 gameplay wise but I think that Dead Space got the atmosphere down a lot more.

What consoles or handhelds do you own outside of PS1 and PS2?

Surprise, Inazuma Eleven dropped this past weekend for 3DS so I decided to blow some funds in my Nintendo eShop account on it.  I've dabbled a little bit, but so far the game's pretty fun.  

Anyone else playing Inazuma Eleven?
I really like the Inazuma series. Plan on getting the third eventually. The games are really fun but can be kind of repetitive. My only issue with the first is that instead of allowing female players, they make extremely feminine guy characters and give them names that would make you think they are girls.

Okay, time for me to take decisions here. I finally got to see what the deal is with Ringabel's memory loss. For those who might have already finished the game, answer this question without spoiling me too much...

Airy's wing counter is at 1 right now. If I awaken the crystals one more time, does this lead to a bad ending or one more loop to clear?

Not really a spoiler
There is no bad ending. Only Normal and True Ending. Just keep doing what you are doing to get the true ending.

I am pretty sure that at Hard Mode, it's suicide to try starting that subquest at mere lvl. 75.

The chapter 4 fight I mentioned or a chapter 6 subquest?

The real problem Lester poses is if he braves and uses an Energy Blast and Bone Crush combo. That can pretty much wipe you out. Otherwise, as long as you can survive his Energy Blast you are safe. I am pretty sure he is purely physical like the dragons so Rampart decreases the damage. Healing every turn is also useful and you can use the special Rejuvenation to recover both HP and MP for the party every time it becomes available. Performer/Salve Maker can buff, debuff and use Resurrection to revive characters. If Energy blast is still a problem you can also go a slightly cheap way and cast stillness every time he absorbs your BP to negate its effects every time. The fight doesn't really change much until chapter 7 or chapter 8 and even then the chapter 7 fight does not change that much. Final chapter is another kettle of fish but shouldn't require maxed out characters.

All jobs mastered on all characters, all 99. Chapter 6 still...

I wish I had that kind of dedication. I'm still struggling through the end of Chapter 2...
It's a safe bet your game will MAKE you have that dedication...if you're playing Hard Mode.

Nah, apart from the bonus boss and maybe the final subquest nothing in hard mode requires you to be at that level. Every boss has a pattern and once you find it, the fights become a hell of a lot easier. Like how the chapter 4 subquest boss in the castle at the northwestern part of the world map only uses Energy Blast right after he drains BP from you. Nothing in chapter 6 requires those levels to beat it. I think I was level 75 entering the final chapter in hard mode.

The Netflix description is
Residents of an Irish island must get very drunk to survive attacks by alien monsters who can't tolerate a high blood alcohol level in their victims.

Despite what the description might suggest, it was actually a fun movie to watch. It was weird that the main character was an English actor playing an Irish Garda as his accent was kind of noticeable. It was pretty cheesy throughout but the movie wouldn't have worked otherwise. You won't get a great story or deep characters but all the same I don't regret watching it.

^The 'shouting scene' sounds something out of X-2 to me.

Nah, I am talking about

when you have to shout at Hope from the future to the past during the Proto Fal Cie Adam fight. I understand the logic behind it but it doesn't stop it being ridiculous.

My issue with the story was more that FFXIII finished up nicely and had tied up most of the loose ends it had than its actual quality. FFXIII-2 came along and tried to continue a basically finished tale. The time travel in the game isn't that hard to grasp although the shouting scene was pretty ridiculous.

Belated congratulations CluelessWonder.

6 month gym membership for 200 bucks, or ps4?

Choices sucks.

I am with Mesh on this one. You also seemed to really enjoy the last gym you were at so if money isn't an issue, I think it would be a shame to stop. The PS4 library will only increase and the console may also have a nice price drop when you do get around to getting it.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
HR3 and 7 star village quests. Currently upgrading equipment as enemies are hitting a lot harder now.

Dead Space
Really liking it so far. I am horrible at conserving ammo but it seems to be plentiful so far.

I really like salve maker and how it's competent beyond ffvs 'mix is OP, but I hope you have a spreadsheet handy'(Potion + phoenix down is pretty sweet though). Good passives, manufacturing attack items with experiment is cool(And another of those abilities that works well specifically because of the brave system) and first aid is the kind of heal I'd like to see more of in rpgs, a preemptive one. And if you want to mix stuff with compound some of the tooltips pretty much tell you 'mix this with a elemental item to lower resistance to that element.'

I love Salve Maker. I had Performer/Salve Maker up to the very end of the game. Giant's Draft is awesome if you are finding yourself being one shot by bosses. It doubles your health even going over the 9999 mark. I think it was Beast Liver and Dragon's Fang. Widen Area costs 1 BP but is great in that it can basically turn an Elixir into a Mega Elixir. You mentioned Resurrect which is one of my favourite abilities. Being able to resurrect someone at full HP for little to no cost for a large portion of the game is great.
