More first impressions:

Witch Craft Works ep. 1 - I got desparate to pass the time and decided to watch this even though it didn't sound very good. God it made my head hurt, it was so stupid...

Hozuki no Reitetsu ep. 1 - That was...oddly pleasant. The characters were likeable enough, though I don't know much about Japanese folktales and traditions, so I'm missing a lot of references. I like how the main character is kind of a stand-up guy for once, and actually solves problems instead of causing them. The comedy kept me smiling the whole time, with a few chuckles and even a laugh or two as it went on. It's not brilliant like I had hoped, but I like it none the less. I think it'll be especially refreshing coming off of the craziness of Space Dandy.

Magical Warfare ep. 1 - So we have a main dude who is not frightened by a Girl with a Gun, not even when she's shooting at him, or a dude with a monster big sword, which he's able to fight off with a bamboo sword,
Code:
And he can kill a man and not even flinch or feel remorse.
Either this man has nerves of steel, or this show has poor writing. :P Thankfully I'm more in it for the action. Honestly, this is what I was expecting Hamatora to be...though I think I like Hamatora way more.

Pretty much Xenoblade. I'm not even kidding, when I think back to all the things I ever wanted in a game, Xenoblade fits it in almost every single way, and it does them just right, too. I think the only thing I'm missing is the nonlinear, or at least influenceable story, and to be quite honest, I don't want that anymore.

X might be even closer to what I want...since it has pilotable mechs. =P

but it also depends on what kind of hard drive you have.

I have a 320 GB Hard Drive that my Slim came with. Will that be good enough? I can't find any info on this...

I think it's more about having an SSD.

Oh...I don't have that, and a big one would cost a fortune, I think. It sounds like it might be annoying, but only on some bosses. I guess I'll leave it open as an option for now.

I figure I may as well ask: Is the PS3 version any good? I already have a copy, but I don't want to play it if it turns out it sucks and I should've waited for the PS4 version. :(

Oh hey, I acually watched some upcoming anime for once instead of forgetting about them. Guess I'll share my thoughts:

Noragami ep. 1 - this is actually a good show so far. Some decent comedy here, and the action scenes were nice, too. The story seems like it might be more focused than I expected, which is good. Definitely gonna have to see where this goes.

Space Dandy ep. 1 - pretty much what I expected: silly fun, not much else to it besides that. Still, I could use some silly fun at that hour. I'll definitely try to keep up with this...especially so I don't have to watch it on AdultSwim.com again...

Nobunaga the Fool ep. 1 - It's rediculous, and I love it. I'm getting a Code Geass vibe, it's that rediculous!

Hamatora ep. 1 - I'm not gonna lie, half the reason I watched this was because the opening featured two artists I've recently come to enjoy (livetune and the guy from Galileo Galilei). I was a little apprehensive about the actual quality of the show, but now I think it might actually be pretty good. It seems promising, and judging from the powers on display, I'm confident the battles will be entertaining if nothing else. I really like comedy so far, though, and the characters seem likeable enough. It looks like the plot starts next episode, so I'll be looking forward to that.

^Yeah...I was really confused by that. Really threw me off there.

I was gonna have a long and ranty response, but I lost interest after about 10 minutes, and I think Tooker said all that needs to be said on that subject.

Anyways, the Mech Soldier has been kicking my butt pretty hard. I've tried several different party combinations, but nothing's sticking. I might need to just go all Ninjitsu, so everyone is always able to avoid that rocket punch.

What's so inherently bad about censorship that even when it's minimal and cosmetic, it's still automatically bad? That's the part I don't understand. Why can't there be a small but valid acceptable limit to censorship?

Too bad I gotta get the collector's edition from Gamestop...

Wait. There's a collector's edition?

That's what Gamestop calls it at least, with an Artbook, soundtrack, and a deck of AR cards.

Anyways, I beat the dragon. I think there's more I can do still, but we'll see. I have plenty of reservations with the demo, but most of them come from the fact that it's a demo that exists solely to show off the battle system and Classes. The difficulty spikes way too hard, the best equipment (which you need by the time you get to the tower, is restricted to the Adventure Shop, which thus forces you to go play something else while you wait for the town to build up. I really don't think I could've taken out that dragon without a Mythril Spear, yet no where I did get one outside of the adventure shop), and you have to switch classes a little more frequently than the area really allows for, since nowhere do you get a lot of Ability points outside of those frogs who are a complete pain to take down until the end unless you have multiple maxed-out Black Mages...when I'm at the end of the demo and still getting 5-9 Job Points per battle, it's really frustrating trying to level up these jobs.
Have Black Mage Lvl. 2 with Sleep on two people, go to the southwest of the castle on the beach area, on first turn spam Sleep with 6 Braves on all Chompers with the fastest party members, eliminate them all one by one while keeping them in their dreams.

Easy 500 money, 240 EXP, and 60 JPs every battle.

Waitwaitwaitwait - Sleep actually does something? That's certainly a first.
Status effects work nearly all the time on normal enemies in any other RPG. BD is no different.

Except now, bosses can also be affected by certain status effects, but the accuracy rate is low.

...it's never worked for me in any game before whenever I tried it. :/

Thanks for reminding me that I don't like NeoGAF...or really 95% of the internet communities out there. :|

EDIT: Sorry, but I really did find those posts rather depressing to read.

But the demo was still fun, and I highly doubt I'll have any of these problems in-game. If nothing else, the demo did its job - the random battles never got dull, and the boss battles were pretty much the best things ever. I can't wait to get this game. Too bad I gotta get the collector's edition from Gamestop...

Little Lady and I are almost done with The Third: Aoi Hitomi no Shoujo, we both like it a lot but don't love it.

Oh wow, I totally forgot about that show. I really liked what I saw, but never got around to finishing it. That was 3 years ago I think...

How do I enable this "spotpass" of which you speak of? This is honestly the first time I've ever heard of it...and I've spent way too much time on Nintendo websites for that to really happen.

^I don't see why any of that is a problem. This seems like a case where all you have to do is ignore the person and the problem goes away.
