Started up the PS4 version as a Qunari Mercenary. The beginning was as good as promised. For some reason, though, the combat made me miss Dark Souls...somehow. :S I'm still learning how to use the tactical view, but it seems pretty cool so far. And the game is gorgeous, though it's tough to compare it to...anything, since this is the first HD game I've ever played on a decent TV.

That was indeed a brilliant English cover. I'm impressed. I looked up the singer and she seems to make lots of good covers like that. Got a good voice and a good choice of words so it doesn't sound too awkward.

EDIT: Started getting pretty deep into the Utaite Wiki...just listened to a bunch of songs from LucyHasYou, Lemon, Miku-Tan, and some others I can't remember...curse you, curiousity! @_@

I thought I had pulled a muscle in my groin on Friday, since it hurt yesterday, but now I remember that my kidneys had hurt as well as my balls, and the only thing different I had done on Friday was drink Gatorade for the first time in years. Now this morning I woke up and felt fine, and the pain meds had worn off a long time ago. I don't think I can drink Gatorade anymore (Fine by me, that stuff tastes awful).

Just finished Chapter 3 in Fantasy Life. I really didn't want to plow through the story because the story here is half-hearted at best so far, but they locked out most of the areas until you've completed chapter 3...

BlazBlue used to have remarkably decent english voice acting, to the point where I actually preferred it over the Japanese dialogue...yet that kinda went downhill by Chrono Phantasma. Old lines are still good, new lines, though, just...sound weird translated and dryly excecuted. I think even the voice actors are pretty tired of these games...I ended up switching to the Japanese, but it's not a who lot better. I guess it fits better, but now I have to get used to these characters' voices that are different, and it's...kinda rough. Platinum's joke doesn't fit as well when she does sound like a little girl. Maybe her way of speaking would detray her true age, but I don't know anywhere near enough Japanese for that to work for me...and Taokaka and Makoto are really annoying now. Before they were charmingly energetic, now they're just...fucking hyper...ugh, hopefully I'll get used to it. Or maybe I'll just witch back and get used to the poor english voice acting...

Oh, and almost all the new music sucks. Really disappointed after CSE had such brilliant tracks...

Wonderful 101 has co-op? I thought it was a multiplayer thing-y like in Bayonetta 2...

EDIT: It's a separate mode, but I do believe it is co-op. Interesting...

Just a random thought, but I think I've finally come to terms with my hatred for Final Fantasy 6.

Don't get me wrong, I still don't enjoy it, not one minute of it. I never did, and I probably never will. It's flaws bug me too much, and what strengths it does have...just aren't strengths in my eyes. But there are lots of games like that and they don't drive me to anger the way FF6 did. I think the main problem was simply that I always felt that no one else saw the flaws - that everyone acted like it's a perfect game, that one can discuss its weaknesses, that no one's allowed to say anything bad about it. But coming here, to this site, I can see that there are plenty of people, enough people, who aknowledge it's flaws...and accept the game despite them. They still enjoy it, they aren't that bad, they may even enjoy those aspects. And that's great. That's okay. That's how it should be.

I only held onto my grudge against that game simply because I felt it was proof of my sanity...yet in the end I was the only one going crazy. =| There might still be people who believe it to be perfect, though, and you know what? I think it might be better if they live in blissful ignorance than let myself stew over it. It's just not worth the pain anymore. It never was.

I guess I could say the same for Kingdom Hearts II, though I'm actually enjoying it. Not to any high degree, but enough to acknowledge its strengths. I can thank Dice and the rest of you for that, too. (I also came to terms with most of my hate for Half-Life 2 long ago, though I still have to give the middle-finger to Ravenholm - easily the worst stage in an FPS I've ever encountered)

Just thought I'd get that out there. A day late, but "hating less games" was a goal I had made last year. Glad I accomplished it, regardless.

I kinda boycotted Wii U Daily because it's a terrible website, but the promise of seeing Chris-chan is...tempting....

Preist also seems a bit more combat-capable, too. I usually like classes with minions of some sort because I solo a lot and they're good for keeping the heat off you, but I don't think I want to spend hours just doing what I've done in a lot of other MMOs...

Actually, looking at the class list, most of the classes seem pretty neat. I'm thinking either Archer, Lancer, Mystic, Priest, Slayer, Warrior...the Berserker's not my style, and the sorcerer's a tad too generic in my opinion (not bad, just...why would I play as a standard attack magic wizard when I have so many other options?). Archers always seem cool, The Lancer's got good defense so I'll last longer, Mystics are good for soloing, priest seems versatile to some degree, Slayer might be fun with the supposedly more involved battle system, same with Warrior. I may have to roll some dice...

...and the dice said Slayer. 3 times. In a row. I think it's destiny.

Journey by Akane...which coincidentally was also the only album from this year I listened to.

Have you played Ace Attourney? It has about as much gameplay as that series.

I take back about what I said before of havcng nothing to watch: I remembered that Love Bullet (made by the guys who did Penguindrum) is a thing, and might turn out to be a (very psychodelic) surprise. Yoru no Yatterman is also a thing, which I just learned about. Basically it's a sequel/reboot-ish/reimagining of an old super hero anime called Yatterman, this time where events are portrayed from the view of the "villain's side". I'm not sure if they're the same duo from Yatterman or what, but it looks and sounds really cool. I mean, it sounds like it'll basically be like if they reimagined Pokemon by making Team Rocket a complex and integral part of the plot. Not gonna lie - I've wanted that since I was 6. :P

Oh, and Rolling Girls looks like a ton of fun. I'm not big on slice of life (at least that's what it's labeled as) but I love it when they take place in interesting worlds, and this one's not holding back in that department.

That said, those are the only three I've found so far that interest me. Far better than nothing, though.

Just downloaded it, but it'll be a week or two before I start playing. Not sure which class to start with...I could go with Mystic, but I'm always that kind of class...
59  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: WiiU on: December 28, 2014, 03:39:51 PM
I think it's the same thing there, but there are less pits and greater range.
60  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: WiiU on: December 28, 2014, 09:39:14 AM
Captain Toad should be good fun with a buddy. As would Super Mario 3D World. Oh, and Pikmin 3 might be worth looking into though I can't remember if there's co-op or not...
