Eh, I've seen worse with most TV shows around here...just saying. :/ Personally, I rarely care how something ends, unless that ending was the entire driving force of the show, which I don't see that often. I care more about the journey than the destination, so to speak.

Anyways, Crunchyroll licensed the only two anime I cared to watch this season, and since next season looks too packed to really leave everything for the end, I think I might actually keep up with them for once. Of course, it'll be ten days before I can actually watch them, so...

Can anyone recommend me a show from last year to watch in the meantime? I'd prefer something a bit short so I can get through a few shows instead of one long one. I've already sampled a few but have yet to finish anything...Also, I'd prefer something that's already finished.

Thanks for the suggestions, guys. I see I'll have a lot to play now.

And to add to my own thread, I found out Buldar's Gate has a conjurer (summoner) class, as well as a Necromancer class. Guess I should check that out, too.

Now this is the kind of discovery I was hoping to hear within my lifetime. It's also interesting to hear that these Sub-Zero-Kelvin particles apparently float? Now this could be quite useful.

Twilight Princess is my favorite Zelda, period. It has its flaws, but overall, it embodied everything I loved about Zelda and cranked it up to 11. I remember enjoying everything about the game, even trying to find the bugs, though I'll admit I had to break out the guidebook after a while. In fact, the only thing I really remember disliking was the one mini-game where you had to use your hookshot. I'd imagine it'd be easier on the Wii, but on the Gamecube it sucked. I ended up quitting the whole game out of frustration over it since it prevented me from 100% completing it...though I still had the last two dungeons to do, not sure why I didn't move on to those...

G-d, now I want to play Zelda...I haven't said that in forever...

Anyways, I got Unchained Blades for the 3DS. It's pretty fun so far. Just got my 3rd party member on the second floor of the first dungeon. A healer, too. Could be useful...once I level her up enough...

Also its based off of goddamn Shakespeare. Of course it was going to end up as a miserable little pile of secrets.

Based on? I know there's a play called "The Tempest," but I thought it was just paying homage rather than, you know, trying to be like a Shakespeare play. Just what I got from a quick look up, though. I could be wrong.

I heard a few people talking about it, as well as an article from someone whose tastes I used to trust, and they all said it was a bad show with lost potential. Personally, I also thought it looked generic, so I avoided it and took those people for their word without really investigating any further. Might put it on my list of shows to check out now, though.

My son is constantly looking for new games to play. He played through Ys Seven and Oath in Felghana on PSP, then tried out Ys I & II. He gave up on that one, though. I gave him tales of Symphonia to play thinking he'd love it, but he couldn't get the fighting mechanics and claimed it was too hard. If I can play through a game, it is NOT too hard.
Anyway, he got some money for Christmas, so, on my recommendation, he bought Okami for the Wii. He's loving it so far, so I figure he's set for awhile. That's a long game.

I remember Tales of Symphonia being too hard when I was a kid. Managing parties in real time takes some getting used to, as does the battle system, especially after a game like Ys. There's also some light strategy required for boss battles. Not to mention he may not be used to keeping up with equipment (buying the best in every town) and staying very well stocked, even if it requires some money grinding. You might want to ask him what's so hard about it and provide a few basic tips, if you haven't already.

Still, I'm sure he'll be fine with Okami for now.

Torchlight.  Play an alchemist.  There is a skill tree that caters to summoning minions.

That might just be the perfect thing for me right now, actually. Didn't know you could summon minions, though I know you have a wolf companion.

To put it simply, I want to play a non-strategy RPG where I can summon minions to do my bidding. Only game I remember being able to do that was in Neverwinter Nights. I didn't have the patience for it back then, not sure if I'd have the patience for it now, so I'd like some other options if possible. I'd prefer a turn-based RPG, but action or mixed is fine. Also, Western or Japanese are fine, too, so long as the "Summoner" summons something that fights alongside or for you.

Oh, and while I'm mostly looking for singleplayer games, MMOs work, too.

I watched the first two episodes of A Certain Magical Index and thought it was incredible, I've already noticed a lot of what you've said there, Klyde. If it keeps getting better, at least for the first season, I'd say we might have a winner here. It's definitely high priority for me to finish, at least.

I thought X was a lot of fun when a lot of the beginning was out of the way.

Final Fantasy X was pretty fun for me until, like, the last quarter of the game. Granted I haven't gotten to the final boss fight (got some caves and Zanarkand left to do), but that's because it's been such a slog recently.

Really? I thought FF13-2 was brilliant. Best game in the series since FFIX.

I dunno if I'd go that far, despite having a lesser opinion of FFIX than you do. I'd definitely say it's very good, at least, even with the mostly awful story. I certainly liked how the gameplay all came together, fixing most of the issues I had with XIII, and while the story may have taken a hit, I'd say it's more of a sacrifice for the good gameplay than anything else. I generally enjoyed it, perhaps about as much as I enjoyed FFX or XIII, both of which I'd say I enjoyed more than others here (at least from my observations), yet that only leaves FFXII and FF6 as lesser games in my eyes. Story aside, it also had some bad music, and there are a few stupid decisions here and there, at least as far as completion goes (I have to play the freakin' slots to get a fragment?! Ugh!). I also hate the cliffhanger ending and the DLC (but at least that's optional). At the very least, I'd say it isn't up to FFIX's level, and I liked FFXI and perhaps FFX more.

To get through to the New World Saga of One Piece.

To buy less games and play more of what I already have.

To actually finish some anime this year, instead of watching a few episodes then going back to One Piece.

To draw way more than I did this year.

And To Get a Job.

I may have some contradictions and skewed priorities in this list...

Final Fantasy XIII - I kept getting my ass kicked by a certain Chapter 10 boss after he transformed, so I kicked his ass before he could transform. I feel pretty awesome right now.

Wow, now that is a feat. I never remember being able to do that.
