I had a dream some guy had my car keys and I was next to his wife, who happened to be a cashier at Walgreen's, and she called him on my behalf saying, "give that nice Death Star salesman his keys back"

We'll see. I'm just gonna go around exploring while killing things and collecting stuff along the way. So long as the game rewards me for it, I'll be more than happy.

I mean the Story builds him up as the better of the two. Kent is Sain's Senior, he's the captain (I think?), and he's closer to the King, he's more mature and experienced...yet in actual gameplay, he double attacks more, but misses more often, gets hit more often, and can't take as much damage...it's really disappointing. But maybe that is just bad luck. Most of his level ups have been one or two stats.

Alright, I just finished Chapter 8. I'm pretty sure that was where I quit last time, and...it was tough. Really tough. I had to restart it twice, both times because I lost Kent, so on the third try I took him out of the party and left it all up to Sain, who didn't get hit the entire fight despite being the vanguard. Wow. Why is Kent always built up as the better of the two again?

I had a dream scientists had invented a real working Zaku II from Mobile Suit Gundam...and then it blew up my house. :|

I'm on Chapter 7 of Fire Emblem now. Getting close to where I quit before, and so far I'm convinced that I just had terrible luck last time...this is rediculously easy. I can't understate how long it's been since I have given a Strategy RPG this much attention, and while I had a couple close calls in chapter 5, otherwise I've just been sailing through this. The tutorial is better at explaining things than I remember, too. I know everything it's telling me already, mind you, but if I didn't, it shouldn't have been that hard to understand. I think I just didn't actually the text after a while...

EDIT: Just completed the ex mission after chapter 7. Some more close calls, but overall, I really liked that mission. Kept me on my toes.

Well, somebody's gotta be. <_<

^I'm not a fan of Super Mario World for similar reason, Jimmy, but 3D World was indeed amazing. Granted, I've only gotten to World 3-3. I really should play it more now that I got the Gamepad extended battery and no longer have to dread being tethered to an uncomfortable spot every time I want to play the Wii U...

Balzac

Get out of my history, damnit! I looked that up just this morning to see if that was an actual surname (it was. It is now my new favorite name).

I think the best part about Magnolia Thuderpussy is that there was a person who actually went by that name. And no, she was not a porn star: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnolia_Thunderpussy

Damnit Jimmy, now you got me playing FE7. =P Just finished Chapter 4. I'm impressed how I haven't had to restart a map yet, considering how terrible I usually am at these games...

Kind of pissed off that because of a huge snowstorm coming, I probably won't be able to pick up HD Neptunia Re:Birth 2 until Wednesday at the earliest, maybe not even until later. Story of my life.

Apparently there wasn't any mention of a storm until this afternoon. Where the hell did this storm come from?

I've been playing this demo a lot since I got it. This game's definitely fantastic, and I can't wait to play the full game. They made some really good changes that I think would make the game much easier to get into.

I'm glad you were able to give a quick rundown of the games, Aeolus, but outside of Fire Emblem, I've played all those games quite extensively in the past, I just didn't really enjoy them before. ^_^; That said, thank you for the Myths & Monsters tips, I actually decided to start with the Kid Icarus franchise, but I skipped that one because I thought it would just be more arcade-yness like the original.

As for Kid Icarus, I first tried the 3D Classics version of the original because it has continues and saves. I still have no idea what I'm doing even in the slightest, but it's kinda fun? Not having to restart the entire game every time I die certainly is a major plus, at least. That was mostly what killed it for me before. However, I think I'd enjoy it more if I had some sort of manual to give me some idea what these doors are for, what the items I'm collecting are, etc. It's almost too old school for my tastes, but I'm sure I could very easily sort that out with a trip online someday.

I then tried Kid Icarus: Uprising, and now I'm sad I've been so harsh on this game before. I don't know, I think I was expecting something like Sin & Punishment only to get something that's more like Star Fox 64...with a ton more depth and replayability. Seriously, I can easily see why people like this game now - you could be playing this game forever, there's so much depth. The flying missions a very fun, and I like that you charge by not shooting, instead of having to hold down a button. (I think S&P2 did that as well?) Though, I still don't like the land controls at all - flicking the camera around does not feel nearly as fast and intuitie as it should probably be. I think there are control options, though, so I'll probably go there soon.

I should also mention: The voice acting sucks. Maybe it's not super-irritating, but the Voice Actors just don't sound like they're trying at all. I guess they're purposely trying to make it sound campy considering the dialogue sounds pretty silly, but I still think their delivery could've been a lot better. I'm sure I've heard these VAs before, and I'm certain they've done better in the past. I guess that's what annoys me the most about it...

Of course, I'm only on the fourth chapter, so we'll see how things go...I'm fairly certain I got to chapter 5 or 6 before I quit last time...

Anyone know anything about the wii games that are released on WiiU vc?

They're cheap for a while... and I want to get Galaxy 2 but I want to know if I can use the wii u gamepad or whatever or do I have to buy a wii mote w/ nunchuck

I know it's late...but yes, you still need the Wiimote. These rereleases will only be good for having the games digitally available at a decent price and you can skip a step getting into the game...convenient, but not the upgrade quite a few of us were hoping for...
