Well please don't get the impression I am suggesting Conception 2 deserves Editor's Choice cause that isn't what I was suggesting.  I just started going off topic when Zeron mentioned the South Park game.  I can't argue with most of the things said in the Conception review from what I've played so far I just took issue with a couple of the comments in it.  Even back in the demo I was skeptical of the battle system because it seemed like it wasn't worth it to try to chain anything.  However, I liked it enough to get the full game so here I am :P

"Conception II does has some decent art direction when it isn't being pervy."  > Why doesn't it have decent art direction while being pervy?  Or are  the transformation scenes and jiggling 2D portraits not pervy?

2. There is absolutely no correlation between the Editor's Choice award and a game's "mainstream appeal." We all love RPGs here. Nobody cares if they're niche or mainstream, we just care if they're good. Conception II is not that good.


You can't say nobody does cause the Gungnir reviewer clearly passed on giving out the Editor's Choice due to lack of mainstream appeal.  I understand it's not in the official blurb about Editor's Choice Award on the site but I remembered this one cause I asked about it.

^  I agree about the South Park thing.  I was thinking the same thing and thought how since that's mainstream it's apparently ok.  Back when that review came out I noticed that it got an editor's choice award with a 90% yet I remembered Gungnir also getting a 90% (I just checked and it was 92%) yet that didn't get editor's choice because it wasn't mainstream enough.  Something about "broad appeal" iirc. 

Also I know Bravely Default was reviewed by different people for this site but how do you explain that game having a significantly higher graphics score than Conception 2?  I played the demo for both (in Conceptions case I did for both consoles) and I just don't see any way to explain it other than dragging down the graphics score for the Conception 2 review to match up with the 60s it got in the other categories.

I just did that juice drinking part before I had to go to work (it's prettymuch right after you load your demo data).  Anyway about the humor, in general I haven't found the game very funny so far.  I don't like the dirty old man trope and the "fall on girl and accidentally grab breasts" scenes for example.  Boob jokes in general are prettymuch never funny.  This stuff has been done into the ground so hard it is unbelievably tiresome.  What isn't tiresome is seeing cute girls in skimpy outfits, at least for me :P

Since My Balls was mentioned I'd say that is pretty funny but it did indeed drag on too long and I certainly think there is much funnier pervy humor stuff out there than that.

Lol the score was even lower than I thought I expected a 70 or so.  Wouldn't be an rpgfan review without prudish comments.  Hopefully I'll enjoy this "creepy" game targeted at straight males (the horror).  Sucks to hear about the dungeons though.

Pretty sure he's talking about the TV series remake, 2040.

Yeah I'm talking 2040.

What's the difference between the two?

Everything.  The girls have the same names but they have different character designs, different personalities, and the story is different. 
52  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: April 12, 2014, 04:57:33 PM
I love the 8 episode OVA but the 2040 remake bores me to tears.  I stopped after 6 episodes

I'm ashamed of nothing!

Yea I think when I started chapter 2 I had two armors with 3 def each so I was taking lots of damage.  Then I found armors with 16 def, really abrubt increase.  

Another tip, spears are awesome.  They have high hit count (especially in slots 4 and 5) and it raises the grade bar like crazy.  You can gain grade much faster than your gigacals deplete and restore gigacals at pillars with extra grade leftover.

Also check the bonus gauge.  If you need better armor or weapons sometimes you'll see something good to aim for.

Well it didn't happen to me at all today at least.  I like the Facet system, it's fun doing different combinations and the appearance change is neat.  I really like the game now but it would be hard to recommend to anyone due to various issues.  Took me quite a long time to warm up to this game.  Also, I'm not normally a huge fan of Tanpei Sato but the soundtrack in this game is really good IMO.  

also that Fish guy Nahab from chapter...5 I think?  All the sudden I was super happy I chose to play with the English dub.  Freaking hilarious

Atlus has been doing this for a long time now.  Other companies do dual audio or JP voice only but Atlus published stuff is almost always dub only.  That's just how they do it :P
59  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Witch and the Hundred Knights on: March 28, 2014, 04:59:13 PM
No, I'm only starting chapter 4 now.  

Most of the bosses only seem to have one attack so far.  That's just.....pathetic.  I am enjoying the game more now for whatever reason though.  

EDIT:  game has been getting better but now THIS is happening to me http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/644717-the-witch-and-the-hundred-knight/68877604  twice within half a day.
