Huh, so I got bored and decided to give Bravest Warriors one more chance and now all of a sudden it decided to stop being so gross and actually have a story and I like it and shit. Wut?

I really want to like Bravest Warriors, since it feels more thought out and interesting than Adventure time, but the gross-out gags are too gross for me, not to mention they're often too mature to be aimed at kids, yet too lowbrow to be enjoyed by adults. They're just stuck in a weird quaisi realm where the only one they're really supposed to amuse is the writer himself...

I mean for petesakes, they had an entire episode devoted to awkward butt jokes. Even as a kid I would've found that obnoxious.

And that butter lettuce joke in episode 3 may very well haunt me for my entire life. I think we should sue.



As for Adventure Time, I mostly agree that its setting is more weird for weirdness sake and that the show tends to flip flop between really good and really not-so-good, now that I've seen more. I'm still torn on it, too, but I find that better than just feeling like it's stupid.

The best suggestion for Satori Marsh is to run through to the end of the region and do the quests/fight the boss needed to move on to the next area, make your way to Makna Forest then turn around and deal with the lizards (by that time you should've accumulated enough Exp/Ap/Sp to be strong enough to fight the Terrible Thunder Lizards).

The secret entrance involves sticking to the edge of the plateau until you can find a trail wrapping around the outside of the fortress's walls.

Also don't forget that before you fight an enemy your Talent Arts slot can cycle to a purple option with an arcing arrow, which is the Throw Stone option. You can aggro some of the lesser lizards out of the main chamber using that and eliminate them before dealing with the boss.

Thanks, that really helped. I completed the quest, then took on the lizards a bit later. Managed to beat the minions one group at a time no problem, but the Godwin was too tough to take down.

Also started Chrono Cross. Liking it so far, but I only just got through the time portal thingie, so I'm not far in.

Xenoblade

There's a side entrance to the lizards.

I've been looking everywhere for it ever since I found the key. Not exactly sure where that entrance is, though...

Reaction to watching a couple episodes of Adventure Time: This is stupid, it feels like the writer just wrote whatever popped into his head with no thought or effort. There's no flow or reason to these jokes. It's like they didn't care, and if they don't care, why should I?

Finds out about the web cartoon made by the same guy called Bravest Warriors: Well this looks interesting. And hey, since it's a personal project, maybe he'll actually put effort into it? I'd like to see what he'd come up with when he actually puts thought into his work.

Reactions to Bravest Warriors ep. 1-3: I take it back! I take it alllll back! This is so freakin' weird and it just gets stupider as it goes. It does feels more thought out and fleshed out, but seriously, if this is what he comes up with when he's actually thinking, I think I'd like it more when he wasn't trying again. Seriously think I'm appreciating Adventure Time a whole lot more now!

Reaction to episode 4 of Bravest Warriors: Oh wait, this is actually a very interesting and well-done episode, and the situation is weird, but the jokes are clever and it's not grossing me out. Maybe this show will turn out alright after all?

Watches episode 5: Nope.

Goes back to watching Adventure Time: Much better.

I like the series, too, but I'm not exactly sure where they'd go with it. But a Wild Arms game for the Vita would be welcome, even if it's just more of the same, just because I'd like to have an adventure I could take with me that uses more than half the Vita's screen...

You know, I wonder how I'd take to Golden Sun nowadays. Before I didn't like the combat because it was too easy and I didn't really have to utilize the system to get by. Also, the story was too wordy and poorly paced, especially the beginning which tries too hard to make you feel bad for characters you haven't even been introduced to yet (or were they barely introduced? Either way it's a major peeve in my book), and it had a lot of Zelda-like puzzles (I love Zelda but I don't love its puzzles).

...actually that still sounds pretty bad, nevermind...

Anyways, I played some more Xenoblade so I could get through the Satori Marsh. Figured out I could change time right from the menu, which made things so fast, I bothered to explore the rest of the marsh.

That was an incredibly unpleasant experience. Poisonous bogs, Giant Sea Turtles, Golden Eagles, and roaming lizardmen abound. And worst of all, the story quest here forced you to go to the worst places in this swamp. Well, except for that one part up above where there are level 80's even during the day...one of the quests also required you fight a whole hoard of lizardmen. No matter how much grinding I did, equipment I obtained, and tactics I used, I could not get even one of them down. It was awful. Screw this place, I got all the items I need, I'm getting out of this freakin' marsh...

Hope you enjoy Prince of Tennis. IIRC, it can be pretty divisive. (I know it's one of the few anime I've seen that I actively dislike, for instance)

I wasn't sure because I don't think the Download-only version has its own page now. Oh well, I'll have to wait until I get my first pay check before I buy anything, so I'm waiting regardless...

But good to know for those who want it now, of course.

SMT iOS - I beat Superman and Thor and now I'm in the Phantom Zone Diamond Realm. They took away my demons and I'm not sure if I want them back because this place has better demons...but I do want Gu Nao and Flaemis back, those took me forever to fuse and I can't find them. >:[

Also, beat Banjo-Kazooie. Despite some annoyances, it was actually a pretty great game.
41  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: JAST USA Licenses Steins;Gate Visual Novel in N. America on: March 31, 2014, 07:58:46 PM
Eh, I don't know, they sent me the digital key, I used it, and it works.  Maybe they mean the physical version as April 30th?

They sent the Download codes early, according to their news page: http://jastusa.com/blog/2014/02/14/steinsgate-golden-master-and-other-news/

Not entirely sure if you can get the downloads of the standard edition right away...

Atlus and Index split, new logos and websites launched -- Gematsu



New logo looks casual. P5 confirmed to be as boring as looking grass grow.

OH MY GOD THIS IS WORSE THAN THAT EPISODE OF DR. WHO WHERE KORRA TURNED INTO AN ALICORN AND MADE OUT WITH GAMZEE.

I'll pay you a 1000 digidollars for that quote.

Anyways, I'm glad you guys pointed this out.  Otherwise I would've gone years without noticing the change...which probably says a lot more about my attentive skills than anything else, but whatever.
43  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: JAST USA Licenses Steins;Gate Visual Novel in N. America on: March 31, 2014, 07:41:37 PM
But butt...the website says it's out April 30th...weird.
44  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: March 31, 2014, 04:39:20 PM
An aside: Can anyone recommend an exploration focused-game with a Myst-like feel to it? In the mood for playing in a world I can explore, but with a notebook and pen by my side as I discover things and take notes for potential puzzles. No/limited combat would be good. Just an adventure.

First one that comes to my mind is Fez. It's a platformer, but the challenges require more thinking than skill. Which instantly makes it the best platformer ever in my book. :P But seriously, there are no lives, the check points are frequent, and a lot of it is just trying to explore and collect stuff, with things you have to come back to later, as well as solving puzzles.

Calling it now that KH III doesn't come out until late 2015 in Japan.

Haha, that's being generous! I was thinking that's when FFXV would come out.
