New trailer of Persona 5:

I want every game ever to have menus like that.

And dancing all night too (nothing to see though):

Man, Sona is getting all the best skins

Raja is great but he's single target and almost all the others are too. I tend to stick with Kira (dual boomerang girl) just because she clears random encounters quick and her magic is actually pretty good.
Her usefulness drops a lot against bosses though but she can switch to being the backup healer there and let the others go on the offensive.

I fucking hate when you pay cash and they hand the change to you in this order: bills and then coins+receipt.

Wait... that's the good order.
You take the bill then do a 180 with your hand to have your palm up for her to toss the change there.
Then you tell her you don't want the bill so she can toss that in the recycling bin next to her full of bills people didn't want.
Dump the change in your pocket then grab wallet with other hand and slide bills in.

Honestly, that man knew how to choreograph.  He'll definitely be missed, Oum was a talent for sure.

Yeah... I don't know how the podcast will go today.
I wouldn't have been surprised if they canceled it but apparently it's still on.

I found SR4 pretty hard actually. Much harder than SR3.
There are some missions where you don't have access to your powers that are pretty harsh.

You played The Wolf Among Us, correct?

To any RWBY fans, creator/animator Monty Oum has passed away at 33 years young.

Wait WOAH! WTF???!

Dude was awesome.

As I was saying at the end of the last entry, Alternate Earth had a lot of potential right out of the gate. The setting was interesting, the level of detail in environment design was particularly present here, and the characters were being reasonable for just a moment.

Of course this goes to hell right away

hahaha... ha... .... ha.......


I still had hope for the game until area 51. This is the exact moment where the game decides to go full retard.

As for Star Ocean 2: There's almost no question, Opera and Bowman make the better teammates.  Now in terms of who delivers better PAs though.... (I think I could do a game journal on this game without even needing to replay it though).

Opera is nice, but I just can't refuse Ashton.
That and Opera's shrieks in combat can be pretty painful on the ears.

That said, Opera has some of the weirdest endings.
Pair up Opera with any character under 18 and she gets really creepy (boy or girl, doesn't matter for her)

If I had to describe it, I'd say Rena from Higurashi

What are the games that you find you had too many good/fun characters and too few active party spots?

Star Ocean 3
I really would have loved a 4th spot in this game. Every other SO has 4 spots. (Blue Sphere doesn't count because it's shit).
I'm usually rocking Fayt, Mirage and Maria, but I would have loved to have either Nel or Sophia in there too.

Star Wars: Knight of the Old Republic 2 (KotOR2)
Pick 3: Handmaiden | Visas | Atton | Mira
All of them make great jedis and are really interesting characters.
There's also the issue where the game heavily rewards you for having Kreia in your party too =/
At least you get to use everyone in split party missions.

Baldur's Gate 2
You'd think a game with 5 party slots and 17 possible recruit would be somewhat easy but it turns out that a lot of the BG2 characters are really interesting.
Imoen, Jaheira, Aerie, Anomen, Viconia, Keldorn, Mazzy, Sarevok...
That's already 8 characters I'd love to use (lack of rogues is because I play one, otherwise you could put Nalia in there too)
I usually end up with Anomen, Imoen, Aerie, Viconia and Jaheira.
The banter between Anomen + Viconia and Aerie + Viconia is just awesome (although you have to be really careful with this party because they WILL try and kill each other lol - you need the alignment swap helmet on Viconia at all time until you get her to be neutral instead of evil)

Suikoden 1 & 2 (and probably all the other ones that I haven't played)
I mean, sure, there's plenty of silly and bad characters, but among the B/A/S-tier characters, there's a good debate to be had.
I ended up using for Suikoden 1: Tir, Hix, Flik, Viktor, Kasumi and Tengaar ||| and for Suikoden 2: Riou, Tir, Sierra, Eilie, Rina and Lorelei
That said, I found it much harder to decide my party for Suikoden 2 than 1.

Radiata Stories (kinda)
Everything below is about the Human Path because the Faery path is filled with terribad characters and you end up choosing whatever...
Unlike Suikoden above, Radiata has characters that are way OP and sadly it just makes everything easier to use them.
That said, it's still hard to choose who exactly you want out of OP ones and then some A tiers with unique abilities can be nice.
Here I went with Jack, Valkyrie, Elwen and Miranda (not S-tier, but her party wide defense buff is really nice + can heal)

Tales of Xillia 2
I've never had much trouble with Tales games overall except for this one.
Choosing my party in Xillia 1 wasn't really hard: Jude, Alvin, Elize and Leia.
Then comes Xillia 2 which forces me to play Ludger (he's seriously way OPier than anyone else and the AI is retarded with him) AND adds Gaius & Muzet.
I still feel bad for ditching Alvin as I really love his guard break but in the end I went with a heavy magic team: Ludger, Elize, Milla & Muzet.
I would have loved to have some bromance with Alvin, Jude and Gaius though...

Come on Dice, surely you've realized by now that Yggdrasil does this shit with everything.  It's a lost cause.

Isn't that the essence of the issue though? It gets old after a while.

Heck, this started as a fun topic about people wanting a game and look where it's at now.
73  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Uncharted 4 on: February 01, 2015, 03:33:52 PM
I'm pretty sure I'm allowed to not like a character. I never liked Sully. So what? I don't get what this has to do with my liking movies, though. Yowza.

Well, if you can't figure out then I'll drop this.

I don't get it, why NOT explain it?  Like, to all of us who can't make rhyme or riddle out of the things you choose to say (please, and seeing as how you're so frequently 'misunderstood' here).

Because it's a discussion forum.

oh wait!

I really love it when the adc understands that Leona means killing lane.
Just had a game with a Tristana that was pushing the kills as much as me.
We ate the enemy bot alive.

Double posting because Aldnoah Zero.

Again another relatively calm episode. Seems they are slowly building a grand stage for the eventual Slayne VS Inaho.
I'm kinda hoping it culminates to something like Kira VS Athrun in episode 30 "Flashing Blades" of Gundam SEED.

I really love the use of music (and the music itself) and silence in combats. It accentuates the action very well.

EDIT: Oh yeah, and Dog Days
