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.

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.

I've heard quite a few good Len songs, but I don't know what's on the game.
67  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: January 02, 2014, 11:26:19 AM
Its almost noon and the demo still isn't up yet. :0
Anyone know when they would put it up?

Exactly noon.

EDIT: Give or take, sometimes they're late by like, 10-15 minutes.

For those who keep up with the latest anime, what are you looking forward to this season?

Personally, I'm not looking forward to much:

Space Dandy looks like it'd be silly fun, though I'm not sending my epectations to the moon just because of its pedigree. It could still quite easily crash and burn. That said, I'll still be keeping up with it as often as I can, whether it's on Toonami or Adult Swim's Website.

Then there's Sailor Moon, which could either be really good, or just as disappointing as its predecessor. To be quite honest, the Magical Girl genre has been going pretty strong thanks to Pretty Cure, and IMO, it's gonna be tough for the new 'Moon to compete.

Speaking of which, there's a new Pretty Cure anime coming out, which I'll probably be scrambling through the dark depths of the internet to find just one translated episode of, and then I'll give up and forget about it until it becomes easier to find 3 years later. That is unless Pretty Cure gets picked up on Daisuke or Crunchyroll (which they won't. If they get one, then they'll suddenly be pressured to get the whole franchise out, and there's a lot of Pretty Cure...).

Hozuki no Reitetsu looks like it might be a genuinely clever comedy, perhaps the best recent one since Senyu and Cuticle Detective Inabi this time last year. This is the one I'm looking forward to the most after Space Dandy.

Wooser is also getting a season 2, which is nice. It'll probably be the only show I watch consistantly until it ends, since its a series of shorts and won't take up too much of my time. :P

That's all I'm looking forward to, though there also a few shows I'm holding out some vain hope that they'll be good:

Hamatero looks like it could be this year's Unlimited...if The Unlimited had a premise that was cliche and as dumb as a rock.

Nobunaga the Fool sounds genuinely interesting, and it's a mecha show on top of that, but the trailers so far have told me nothing, and I'm not sure how well its gonna be able to pull off its interesting premise.

Magical Warfare sounds kinda cliche and it looks like another battle-anime-in-a-high-school-setting, but the trailers thus far have shown that the battles might be genuinely interesting.

Buddy Complex is another Sunrise Mecha Anime. Sunrise has not had a very good track record lately. Still, I'm holding out hope that it'll at least be better than Valvrave and Gundam Builders. But only a little hope...

The Pilot's Love Song could be good, but the last few Alternate History anime revolving around fighter pilots were really really bad. Hopefully this is more Area 88 and less Last Exile, but the chances seem kinda slim judging from the trailer. Still, I'll give it a chance just because I'd love for something like this to actually work...

Noragami looks cool, but a lot of people are comparing it to Gintama, and that's an extremely high bar to pass. I doubt it'll be that good - it doesn't look much like Gintama after watching the trailer - but it'll probably entertain me. Only problem is it was picked up by Funimation. I'll need more than that to get me to commit to watching something on their players.

Lastly, there's Wizard Barristers: Benmashi Cecil, which seems interesting from the trailers, and judging from Galileo Donna, the director has improved greatly since Kite and Mezzo Forte...which isn't saying much, since he was only narrowly above your average hentai/Grindhouse director before. :$

Oh, and I was looking forward to World Conquerers until I saw that it includes lolis in extremely revealing outfits. Yeah, no thank you...

...old classic anime...[lists anime that are barely 10 years old]

I'm sorry, but that always makes me chuckle, considering how many 70's, 80's, and 90's Anime I tend to watch. :P

Okay. I thought the Etrian Odyssey IV one had an exclusive quest/item that would carry over, but I didn't hear anything about Untold's demo having anything like that, but I had to check.
71  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: January 01, 2014, 03:25:22 PM
Okay. Just read up on Quantum Mechanical Spin...and my head is now killing me. But you seem to be right, it doesn't have anything to do with what I thought it did in that light.

I'm going to go back to assuming everything in Gundam AGE is stupid before I get an aneurysm @~@.
72  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: January 01, 2014, 01:55:11 PM
This is starting to get to me: Can rotating a beam of plasma actually have any effect on the beam's penetration? Because that was a sticking point I had with Gundam AGE (well, one of many) - that they had a beam weapon where its big thing was that it rotated the beam of plasma, thus making the beams more effective in penetrating the bad guy's armor. And I wasn't convinced they didn't pull that out of their butt, but then I found this: http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/articleDetails.jsp?reload=true&arnumber=6490006

I can't quite understand what its talking about, but the title sounds kind of like what Gundam AGE was talking about...

So is this really possible? Because it sounds like it shouldn't be. I know its Gundam and its science shouldn't be taken seriously, but even past Gundams tended to use ideas that were thought of by the scientific community and had some semblence of thought and realism to them. From what I saw of Gundam AGE, though, I'd be very surprised to find any kind of thought put into making its science and world even remotely believable.

I know this isn't a science forum (or even a thread for science...), but I thought there were a few people here who visit this thread who understood this kind of stuff better than I do.
73  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: January 01, 2014, 12:04:36 PM
I gotta figure out something to delete. Is there any reason to play the Etrian Odyssey Untold demo when you have the full game?
74  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: December 31, 2013, 09:28:39 PM
Mickey, is there any reason to get the 3DS STeamworld Dig over the PC version..?

It's a tad cheaper, especially right now with the sale, where it's $7.
75  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: December 31, 2013, 08:08:24 PM
Sooooo....SteamWorld Dig is quickly becoming my newest addiction. It's a metroidvania game I got on the 3DS eShop where you mine underground and collect various ore and gems, as well as weird orb things, which you trade in for upgrades, such as ones for your pickaxe so you can go deeper into the mine and get better ore for more upgrades. Or more pouch space so you can stay in the mine longer. You also find items in designated parts of the mine, which makes the game become more complex as you go. I'm really surprised by it. It's not the best Metroidvania out there (I prefer finding upgrades rather than buying them, but I guess that's the whole point of the game. Having very limited pouch space, while balancing the game a bit, is really only there to artificially lengthen the game), but it does remind me that Metroidvanias are my favorite genre. I've been playing it for about 5 hours now, and I don't think I'm even a third of the way through the game. That's pretty good for an eShop game.
