I wasn't clear on what it actually was. Is it just 2 separate weapon triangles that behave congruously but separately. Or is that each particular weapon now has 2 weapons it's weak against? My instinctive sense is that the first option would be good or neutral but the second would be bad and would dilute the sense of tactical reward.
We've seen from screenshots or gameplay footage that the bow is now weak to the sword, so it is the second interpretation.

Finished rewatching Gundam Wing over the weekend. Was better than I was dreading it was going to be. Weird thing, the Mobile Doll plot line is a lot more relevant now than it was back in the 90s. The series does have some problems though, such as overusing the plot point of a group within a group plotting a rebellion. But I am glad that I rewatched it finally.

How about that new Breath of Fire cellphone game huh?





Stop reminding me that that is a thing. >.>


Well there's a game I never expected to get a sequel.
O.o I do not understand the thought process that resulted in the decision to make that sequel.

Anyone else think the revised weapon triangle is good?  Anyone?
I like the fact that they are tweaking it. I'm going to have to see weapon spread on the classes before I feel comfortable on saying whether the change is good or not though.

Yeah, I figured that's what it was. It was still helpful just for the fact that together we were able to mow through a lot of map squares as well as beat some of those "X number of enemies in ten minute" challenges. I struggle with those.

I unlocked the Great Fairy "weapon" for Link. I thought it was cool at first, but since she's so huge it throws of my perception. I was fighting Dodongo in an easy map just trying her out and a couple of times I threw bombs at his mouth I missed because I was too far away and couldn't tell. That and it seems like she moves like a glacier since she is so huge. You'd think that they could have let the Great Fairy and Epona have more speed than they actually do, since one is huge, and the other is, ya know, a horse.

I also unlocked the Summoning Gate for Lana. So I now have all the weapons unlocked though I don't have all the level 3 weapons.

I would probably be playing it for another year to unlock everything. I'll keep plugging away at it when I have the chance, but I'm satisfied with it for now.
The glacier thing is just perception, she moves as fast as anyone else. The Great Fairy is fun to use, although she really is best for crowd clearing. Summoning gate is one of the trickiest movesets in the game to use, so have fun unlocking that level 3 weapon.

Whoo nearly finished with the support log for FE Awakening. All that is left are the M. Avatar to Khan and paralogue characters and the Morgan to 2nd gen. I'm so close to finishing this thing off that I can taste it! And it tastes like victory!

A friend of mine came over yesterday and we played Adventure Mode in Hyrule Warriors. Even with two players, it was difficult to get A rankings on many of the maps we played. We still did get some stuff unlocked and even made it up to Spectacle Rock. We're going to see if we can team up again at some point in the next week or two and keep plugging away. The enemies on Death Mountain were dropping some REALLY strong weapons. At least much more powerful than anything else I had available. As such, Link, Zelda, and oddly Tingle have weapons with about 400 attack levels. I really can't believe how hard it still was with a second player, and the sheer amount of content there is. I've barely even touched the other Adventure Mode maps.
Having two players can actually make it harder to A rank maps as for many maps the hard part is avoiding damage and the damage taken by two players is added together to determine your rank. Then again it can be helpful if you have to take a bad moveset in to a map. Then again some maps are hard due to you having to be in five places at once...those certainly benefit from having an extra person.

Finally decided to watch Gundam Wing again after having not seen it for close to two decades...it aged better than I was afraid it was going to. I'm going to be comparing it to Gundam Seed a little since that is the series I watched immediately before. While both of them have five Gundams and rely on reused footage during battles, it really is a lot less noticeable in Wing since they change up which suits are fighting each episode while in Seed the exact same suits repeat the exact same moves every episode. Also while the art of Wing is not as clean as Seed, I do have to say that Wing does look great.

As for Wing itself, I am enjoying it. I don't think I ever saw the full series in order when it was on Toonami, and there are a few episodes that make a little more sense when I see them in proper order. I'm Sally Poe a bit more this watching (for w/e reason I almost always missed the episode she is introduced in) and I am finding Noine (sp) to be annoying. Next episode should be the duel at the South Pole, so that should be fun.

Just look at that guy.

Sadly, the screenshots shoot that theory down, as they depict both the Maid and Butler with Knives and Healing Staffs (or whatever equivalent Hoshido uses). The Maid in particular has the two skills attributed to Awakening's Troubadour (Res +2 and Demoiselle) in her status screen (along with a currently unidentified third skill). Moreover, said maid has 3 Skills and 6 Move at Level 2, which suggests that the Maid Class is a promoted class. I wouldn't be surprised if the same applied to the Butler.
Okay so that would make Maid/Butler the replacement class for War Cleric, at least for Nohr. Do we actually have any details on Ninja beyond that they use hidden weapons?

...and I maintain that maids and butlers stick out slightly less than a ninja would on a battlefield. :p

If they were only going to have one generation, it's obvious it'd be AGE-3 because that way you can have all 3 leads in the game.
Generation wise yeah 3rd makes sense, but that includes the AGE-FX, which is less stupid than the AGE-3.
11  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Top 10 RPGs Poll on: May 21, 2015, 06:56:40 AM
My top ten would be (in the order I remember them):

Ar Tonelico
Mana Khemia
Xenoblade Chronicles
Radiant Historia
Kingsom Hearts Birth By Sleep
Muramasa: Rebirth
Persona 4
Record of Agarest War 2
Valkyria Chronicles
Tales of Symphonia

Of fucking course they're running AGE-3. I really hope the masteries take a solid dump on Kio's lame ass (hell, I may just want to Map his sad ass back into the garage/bench for the hell of it). I guess this also means we're getting Crazy Grandpa Filt, but he wasn't worth Kio then and he probably won't be worth it now.
Seriously the AGE-3? That is the second lamest of the suits operated by the main characters (the only one lamer is the speed version of the AGE-3 because...wut?).

Watched season finale of Agents of Shield last night. Excellent end to an excellent season. The sting at the end of the episode was just mean. Also I really have to wonder how the events of this season are going to impact the Inhumans movie.

It makes some sense with the concealed weapons and all, but I have no idea why you would bring a maid/butler to the battlefield. So they can pour their lord some lovely tea between turns? There's no good reason to bring and that makes them highly suspicious, which removes all the sense the class could have made.
To be fair Maid/Butler are probably the Nohr equivalent to the Hoshido (sp?) ninja...and having a ninja in the middle of the battlefield is more suspicious imo than having a maid or butler so it all evens out. >.>

Watched The World God Only Knows: Goddesses yesterday. Oh geez, I wish the manga had gotten an official release. This season was fun. I really wish that the last arc could get an anime adaptation. I strongly doubt that is going to happen at this point. *sigh*

Currently using Gundam Seed Destiny as background noise while playing Fire Emblem Awakening. Shinn is still annoying. Cagali is still poorly handled. And the Impulse is still conceptually worse than the Strike. >.>
