Finally remembered Xabungle was a Tomino mecha show (and one of the few I have yet to see) so I decided to start that. I'm only 7 episodes in, but it's been surprisingly entertaining so far. I mean, I know I have yet to experience a Tomino show I didn't like, but I didn't expect much from a "light-hearted" Mecha show, especially since the last one few I saw weren't very good (beginning of ZZ Gundam and Majestic Prince), but this one nails it. The comedy tends to be funny without being out of place or overbearing, the characters are largely likeable and distinct, and the story itself has enough serious themes and moments to give it weight so it doesn't just feel like a bunch of random silliness. Plus the action's great and I love the mecha designs. You can tell BattleTech ripped quite a few of these machines from Xabungle, and they even have Mechwarrior 2's favorite death animation, where the legs keeps going after the top's blown off.

So $20 for something I bought for $5 a few years ago brand new? And its slightly downgraded plus has touch controls? No thanks...

EDIT: Oh yeah! Beat Mass Effect 2! That was even better than the first. That last mission, though:
Code:
was there any way to use a distraction without having someone die? I used one of our best characters, Grunt, who we thought could handle anything, and he died...

Code:
Distraction? I'm not 100% sure which choice that is referring to. Looking at a Suicide Mission guide, I see three possible choices. 1st Fire Squad, 2nd Fire Squad, and Escort. In none of those scenarios is it a good idea to choose Grunt because he is not a good commander (being maybe two months old tops and all). If you did not choose him to lead but he died in one of those two, then that that means whoever you did choose was a bad choice. For Escort, he would be a distraction only if not selected, which is a good choice, but he shouldn't die unless he isn't loyal so I am assuming that he died in one of the previous two.

I looked at that Guide. It was a terrible guide. So I looked at a different one:

Code:
I'm referring to the point where you needed a second team to hold off enemies while your team goes in the second route while escorting the Biotic. I picked grunt because we thought "Who better to better to be the meat shield than the designated meat shield? But apparently Grunt's not good for anything on this mission, and I mean [i]anything[/i]. Miranda was the best one for that job, which we found out when we decided to try the mission again this morning. We decided if anybody on this team was expendable, it was Miranda, but much to our chagrin, she has a pretty thick plot shield and won't die on the mission even if she's not loyal. There was even a seen where she's shot liker Grunt was, and she just walks it of like "It's okay, it's just a bullet, I'll be fine." We were so close to happiness, damnit!

Yeah, that trailer was pretty awesome. Is it a straight remake or is it an alternate path? Just curious.

EO 3 is frustrating.

I'm finding it really difficult to make money and having to have a specific class just to harvest plants is incredibly stupid.

Yeah. I ended up needing to use a second team consisting of 4 farmers and one of my normal team mates in order to make a decent amount of money in that game...

$8 sounds reasonable, and I doubt the shipping will be too much. I'm on the east coast, too. I'll PM the details.

^While that is a funny gif, I do have to admit none of those things would really make me consider an Xbox One. Then again, I keep forgetting why I have any interest in the PS4, so...

Hm, how much for Final Fantasy Tactics Advance?

I like to know what I'm doing when I play a game, and call me crazy, but I'm not about to call a game that doesn't make full use of its systems good. Kinda why I hate FF6, KH2, Golden Sun, and other games where major aspects can feel superfluous. Why should I play a game where I have to learn a bunch of stuff that doesn't mean anything? Why should I play a game where the designers didn't even put in enough care to make sure the different aspects of a game work together? I can't stand games where I'm just as well off, if not more well off if I don't put in the effort to learn the ins and outs of a game.

I may doubt my patience to handle a complex game, but I know I don't have the patience for a poorly-made game.

Just finished Mass Effect (got the Renegade Ending), and it was everything it was cracked up to be. Just moved on to Mass Effect 2 and despite some minor annoyances, it's looking like it might be even better. We switched our classes to be more Ability oriented, though. I'm gonna miss that shotgun.
1271  Media / General Games / Re: Misc. Gaming News Topic on: May 17, 2014, 06:04:09 PM
Yeah, I mean, what do you do after Ultra, anyways? Outside of a patch or two, I doubt we'll see more of SF4 unless it's years down the line.

Damn, now I gotta read that Preview since I've been working hard to resist the temptation to get Mugen Souls...

EDIT: and I did! But I don't know, I've been put off from the first game in large part because of its confusing amount of systems. Maybe a younger me would've enjoyed the challenge of learning a complex game, but I don't know if I have the patience for that anymore. Even if it turns out really good in the end, I probably might wait for a severe price drop before I pick it up.

EDIT 2: Nevermind...

Big news I guess.
After 25 years of publication, Ah Megami-sama (Ah My Goddess) has finally ended.

You could technically say it took 25 years for them to get married.

That is big news. :O Did they ever get a Guinneas World Record for Most Drawn-out Storyline?

Ahahahahahahaha, no. Not even close. You have stuff like Doremon, Lupin the 3rd, as well as other miscellaneous manga and anime that have been going on since the 60s-70s.

I think Golgo 13 is the only one of those with even a semblence of a plot. Not that Ah My Goddess is a ton better in that area, but still, it at least tried to remember it had a story from time to time. I just mean they really put off the inevitable ending as much as they could.

I've also been playing the first Mass Effect on the PS3 with my brother. I couldn't get into this game for a laundry list of reasons, but a lot of them have been mitigated now that my brother got me to roleplay Shepard as a Renagade, something I'm not used to. I guess roleplaying really helps with these kinds of games, but I was never good at roleplaying, so having my bro there helps.

Anyways, after doing tons of side quests and being a dick to the entire Galaxy, we just rescued Liara. I used the Mako for most of that Mission. I really feel like I didn't need to use the Mako, but I did. Most of it consisted of me running Geth over.

You know, I think that is one of the things I missed the most from the first game that they cut out of the next two. Obviously the Mako was buggy as shit and broke the game a bunch, but it could be fun too. I feel like if they fixed it instead of axing it completely I would have loved it. 2 & 3 are missing that exploration element the first one had that I enjoyed. Still great games though. Maybe they add that back in the new one they are working on, are at least something similar.

Despite how fun it is to run badguys over, my brother and I both agree that wandering around Aimlessly with the Mako is our least favorite aspect. I like the exploration, but this gets really tedious really quick. I personally won't miss it too much...
