Too bad it didn't quite might this fall like I hoped, but I think it's clear it'll be worth the wait.

It's a TT game.  You couldn't seriously be expecting it for this year.

I wouldn't even expect it until later 2015. In Japan.

Nintendo said twice that it was coming this year. Excuse me for believing the game's own publisher. :/

It's so beautiful...

The Racing game is terrible and the second racing game is even worse. They're a blight on an otherwise perfect collection.

I'm still ticked they had to casually mention it in a blog instead of throwing it into a conference...seriously, I'll buy it, I'll play it, I'll probably love it, but I'll be crying myself to sleep when the game fails to sell well and S-E blaims the fans for not marketing their game for them...

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.

Wait. I wasn't aware that Tomino had anything to do with Majestic Prince.

But yes, Xabungle is a great show.

He didn't. I just meant Light-hearted mecha shows in general there. I can only think of 5 total, and 2 of them I haven't seen yet...

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.
