Been playing Gundam Versus. I'm enjoying myself, but I'm honestly not that good. XP

Same. Melee in particular keeps tripping me up, and there are a few characters (Ground Gundam especially) where the dash moves seem unnecessarily tricky. It doesn't help that the tutorial is literally useless. Just drops you into the game, and you can't progress until you win., Teaching new players? What's that?!

Honestly, if I hadn't watched 2+ hours of it streamed before playing, I'm not sure I'd have even the slightest idea what I'm doing. And that was purely a coincidence that I stumbled upon that. Also, why are there no Suits from 0080, even as DLC? Or SEED Destiny? Not that I'd be too enthusiastic to play them, but you'd think they'd at least include the Destiny Gundam and any of the Red units (none of Athrun's suits even make an appearance!). I'd have to check Extreme VS againb, but I have a feeling that I should've waited on this one, at least as far as seeing my personal faves in action.

Oh yeah, and no mid-combat Subtitles? I know some people find that distracting, but I'd really love to know what they're saying without having to learn an entire language....

^The game-y parts of SO4 are fun, but the story and presentation is B-Movie at best, and the dungeon/world designs aren't anything to write home about, IIRC. I definitely had fun with it, but my expectations were low and I took long breaks between sessions (not even sure if that makes a difference, that's how I usually play games).

Realized that the amount of time I've devoted to online games could be spread out over 9+ singleplayer games, so I started up Uncharted 3. In a single session, I'm already 35% through. Wow. I forgot what making progress felt like! I'll finish this up by Thursday, and I'll still have time to play Paladins in between. Definitely gonna make a push to clear out some backlog where I can once this is finished. Might save Uncharted 4 for December, though.

Finally encountered a griefer on League of Legends. It really does just make a bad game worse. I'll try to at least take the lessons I learned and move on, though. Which was a lot. I learned a lot. Mostly from the other team. Certainly not from my own team. Definitely made good use of that report buttom, and I'll just mute 'em quick next time. The next time I see someone say "0/5? Must be AFK" (which I found out means "away from keyboard"), I won't even reply back. Got the same gripes in a Paragon match once. It's so lame. Not even anger-inducing, just...lame.

Okay, I actually decided to take a look at this upcoming season's anime chart. I stopped watching trailers two seasons ago, and I'll continue to do the same again, since trailers have only lead to disappointment for me in the past. With that said:

I might give Black Clover a chance.

I'm glad Blood Blockade Battlefront is coming back.

Dies Irae looks interesting, but everything people have said about it suggests it'll probably turn into a rushed mess. If it turns out better than expected, though, I'll definitely give it a watch. Otherwise it'll be yet another reason why 12-episode seasons shouldn't be the default for story-heavy adaptions...

More Gintama is always good.

I actually had a soft spot for the first season of Hoozuki.

Why are they making another adaption of Kino's Journey? The first one seemed fine enough.

Robomasters: The Animated Series sounds like everything I originally wanted Robotics;Notes to be, although I still liked that show in the end.

Does anybody know if Altair: A Record of Battles has been any good so far?

Glad to see we'll be getting the second Mobile Suit Gundam: Thunderbolt movie soon, not to mention more Digimon Adventures Tri. Oh, and the animated Godzilla movie looks amazing! I can't wait for it!

Oh, and I forgot Yamato 2202 was on-going! I can't wait until that's finished and translated so I can binge-watch it! 2199 was amazing and I really want to see what happens after that!

^Just my unfiltered thoughts after looking at AniCharts, sans all the "This looks dumb" and "ew, why is this a thing?" that I've learned doesn't really add anything positive to a conversation.

since playing ff14 i have a hard time playing any mmo that doesnt have controller support. just never been comfortable with the mouse and kb setup.

Same, for the most part. Honestly, I'm looking forward to Tera for the PS4, just for that reason alone.

I'll be streaming Path of Fire tomorrow for the site which includes a few GW2 cash shop item giveaways.  So if you want a chance at winning free stuff hop on by.

I'm always up for free stuff. Will they only be for Path of Fire, though? Or are we talking more general stuff that'll apply to the base game as well? know what, I'll watch it anyways. I did need to research this game, after all.

EDIT: Aaand I did. Looks pretty damn cool. I'll download the base game tonight, though even if I really get into it, I'll have to hold off from the expansions until there's some sort of bundled deal or sale. It sounds like there's plenty to it already, and those gliders and mounts look like something that'll make late-game stuff easier, but could easily spoil me in the early game, anyways.

Oh, so Annubis was the reason I wasted my time on Overlord!

...I'd say "no offense," but I'm still angry about that show. I don't care if it was just supposed to advertise the novels, it wasn't a very good advertisement. If there was any potential to its story, it didn't show it outside of a few scenes, and I'm far less enthusiastic about a movie adaption at this point.

Speaking of bitter disappointments: I saw the rest of the Berserk movies now that I noticed they were up on Netflix, and BOY was that unpleasant. I don't know what I was expecting, though, since that was my opinion of the manga after the demons showed up.
Spoiler: show
Maybe I figured they'd downplay the gore during the sacrifice scene? That they wouldn't be so graphic during Casca's multiple rape/attempted scenes? Or that I would actually give a damn about this story now that they killed off all of the characters I had gotten attatched to, except for two characters who may as well be dead, and Macho-Man Guts who I only found interesting when he had Griffoth as a foil?
Either way, Berserk was always a series I liked the idea of more than the actual excecution. It's just not for me, plain and simple, and no amount of increasingly-underbudget 3D animation was going to change that.

Overwatch - New update's out, with changes to D.Va and Mercy that I was really waiting for. So far they do not disappoint!

...what does disappoint, however, is the new map that also came with it. This is by far the worst map I've played on, and every match on it has been nothing but frustrating. I could rant all day about it, but so far, it just seems like an intentionally chaotic map, meant to heavily favor the defending team, while the offensive team will just get chewed to pieces unless the  other team are complete idiots. I don't think I've ever won on this map as the attacking team, the more that I think about it. And that's on top of the fact that the entire thing is this rusty red color, masking Bastion's Muzzle-flair - whose profile is pretty low in turret mode, and you aren't given much time to adjust your senses once he starts firing, because he can tear through you pretty fast, especially if Torbjorn also has his turrets set up.

Basically, there are a few team combos that seem extremely effective, but even without those, it's not a fun map to play on, nor is it visually interesting. I'm not looking forward to playing it again, so I guess I'll just take another break from this game.

Paragon - Another game that got a big update, also with a new map, one that I wasn't expecting, and it brought along with it a lot of preformance issues and crashes that ruined what should've been a wonderful surprise!

Paladins - taking a break, due to bugs and frustrating character changes in the latest patch, that will only get worse in the next patch!

League of Legends - Also having some crash issues, and overall, it seems to make my comp's fan run like crazy. I didn't think it'd be that strenuous on my computer, but then again, I don't game much on the PC. I'll still try to play a lot so I can get the current even costumes, but otherwise, I might play more Heroes of the Storm in the second half the week. Maybe start up Starcraft over the weekend.

EDIT: Also leveled up to 10 and tried the Invasion game mode. 'Twas awful. Never again. Just gonna buy a few skins and then I'm looking forward to this event to be over with.

Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 - Grabbed the upgrade on sale, so I played a ton of that after Paragon started crashing too much. Think I'll stick to fighting games on consoles this week.

Oh uh gaming news

Yeah well basically gamestop has sucked and always sucked and I literally got like 2 games from them ever, and one of them didn't have the game in it.

Everything else has been like Toys R Us or maybe it was EB Games or any number of other, much better things.

Those fuckers in Texas and are just greedy shits to be honest.

Sounds more like the store managers or other employees were overstepping their boundries. Maybe. That Kotaku article is just poorly written in general. Why do people keep taking them seriously when Kotaku doesn't even take their own articles seriously?

Yeah it's fine to play for awhile but IMO once you have tried all the characters the only thing left is the hyper repetitive MOBA style gameplay which I don't care for...

Pretty much the gist of every online multiplayer game. We aren't talking about an MMO here, the gameplay loop's the main attraction. With that said, I like it so far. Very fast-paced, compared to League of Legends, at least, but the community's much more chill in comparison. Seriously, I heard League's community was bad, but even on co-op vs. AI I'm getting grief. :/ That entire mode is just there to practice. You kind of have to expect that the people you're playing with might still be learning the ropes...

Second expansion, first was something of Thorns or whatever. It's a fantastic game if you like freedom and variety of content, but the combat can be a bit tough at times, very action-oriented.

You're speaking my language. I'll have to give it a look, then.

Yeah Guild Wars 2 is easily my favorite MMO.  I love FF14 but man sometimes it lacks in the content department.  Def playing a  lot of PoF when it releases next Friday.

Yeah, FF14 was a blast, but I'm no longer a subscriber, and I'll probably hold off until a the next expansion or two. Never tried Guild Wars (first or second), is Path of Fire the first expansion?
