Finished Tears to Tiara 2. Game was alright, although I was ready to move on by the time everything finished.

Started playing SMT 4 last night. Beginning is kind of rough. I think I should have gotten over the initial difficulty now, but kind of surprised at how easy it was to die at the beginning.

There are some "multi-class" dress-sphere that you'll want to level up each dress-sphere included within those dress-sphere.
Yuna = Warrior + Dark Knight
Rikku = White mage + Berserker
Pain = Samurai + Black Mage

Was there a bonus for maxing them all? I don't remember.

Also, if you didn't notice, check Yuna's sword when you put her in Warrior ;)
I vaguely recall that the Mascot class gets more powerful with every class you master (therefore mastering everyone maces it power), but I forgot how it gets more powerful.

Well, I've got 6 endings, I should be well off right?
Oh wait, there's 21 of them.

I'm sure I can follow a guide to make it easier...
WTH!?? https://squadronofshame.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/page_1.jpg (fully SFW if wondering - just a big image)

The pathing in School Days is rocket science.
That is quite the interesting pathing map. So what do the blue versus black dots represent?

Watching someone live tweet their experience with the anime on Twitter at the moment. Odd coincidence.
That's going to be entertaining once they get to the ending (assuming no one has spoiled the ending to them before).

The game can go really different from the anime I'm seeing.
The anime really took the scumbaggiest route available (which I've yet to find myself... I need to get in touch with my inner-douche or something). There are quite a good number of not-scumbaggy routes.
Also, there seems to be overall much more crying than sexing =/
Fun fact, the Nice Boat ending was not an ending in the original release of the game. It was a unique ending to the anime that was added (along with a couple of other endings?) to the HQ release.

Wow been a while since the last post here. Just wanted to let people know that Diancie is available via Mystery Gift until the 27th in US and EU for OR/AS.

Really considering getting on the game or the anime at some point with all the rave reviews everywhere....
You really should Steins;Gate is a great game. You can't go wrong with either the anime or the game. If you are only going to one or the other, I would recommend the game. The anime is an excellent adaptation which covers everything important from the game. However the anime does cut some stuff (most of which is minor) for time and doesn't really add anything of significance to replace it except for the final episode that serves as an epilogue. The game however has alternate endings, which I find to add an interesting level of "what if" to how events could have played out. The PS3 and Vita versions are both coming out in English next month, so maybe pick it up then.

Tears to Tiara 2?
I had meant a pure visual novel, but you know what? Why not. Might as well finish up my PS3 backlog.

Speaking of which, I have gotten to the third fight. Enjoying the game so far. Main character is likeable. Looking forward to seeing where the story goes.

Recently rewatched all of Warehouse 13 (plus listened to all the commentary tracks). I love that series so much.

True. And I fully suspect that Nu Emerald will have a Nu Rayquaza (I know its not going to be Nu, its probably either going to be Delta or Sigma or something that I'm too lazy to check right now) as its emphasis, but for this movie in particular, the image seems to involve something fuck off large and with a crown which would fit something with the word Regi in it.
Eh, they already did the a focus on Rayquaza with the Delta episode so I doubt we will see a separate Delta Emerald.

I'm sure less important to everyone is the fact they did some teasing for a strange silhouetted Pokemon which looks similar to another existing Pokemon.
...which Pokémon does that look similar to? It isn't ringing any bells for me. I was assuming it was an enhanced version of Volcanion since it still needs to be released. I just checked on Serebii, where people seem to be convinced that it is a new form for Zygarde (although I do not see it at all).

Beat Lord of Magna yesterday. Game was alright. Better than I was expecting when I started but not good enough for me to work on another run through.

Not sure what I'm going to go through next. I was thinking Tales of Heart R would be next when I started Lord of Magna, but I am also getting an itch to play a visual novel. I don't have any good ideas for visual novels with official releases though.

I started reading a light novel that I thought was interesting.
The first volume was a good read and it had an original premise.
Starting from the second volume, the main character basically rapes something every chapter.
At volume 3, it's a mix of raping new thing and 'consensual' sex with the girls he's previously 'broken' through rape.
I kinda stopped reading there...

Worst is, I'm sure that this description can easily refer to dozens of LN out there.
I am going to pray that you are wrong and that description is an uncommon LN series description.
11  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: July 15, 2015, 06:59:49 AM

...is this serious or not? I've never read the series and this is coming from Japan so I could believe either way...

Finally stopped playing Story of Seasons. Ended up with 160 hours. I pretty much had beaten it two weeks ago but my completionist mind would not let me stop playing. Did not get 100% (because that take 30 in game years), but I am content with what I ended up with. Kind of wish I could have triggered Licorice's reverse proposal, but 150 gifts at 1 a day is too much. x_x

Started Lord of Magna last night. Only got through the first battle before going to bed. I'm not particularly excited about the game so far, but it should be good enough for the moment.

The reason why there's no DVD of Gargoyles S3 is because there is no S3 of Gargoyles. Even the series creator has gone on record to state that there is no third season.

As for what's been happening with ReBoot, that's had an online comic that was pretty unsatisfactory (it started on the same note that Season 3 almost ended on, doom and gloom everywhere, with Megabyte running the show again, only this time its because Bob was too busy sitting on his hands like a Gundam style pacifist instead of being lost in space, which lasts up until Megabyte crossed some kind of arbitrary line which set Bob off like, again, a Gundam styled pacifist, though his Gundam style pacifistic Beam Spam Rampage got cut drastically short due to a shady cult popping up out of nowhere and instantly subduing all the viruses) and at least two announced attempts at making a movie follow up that I have yet to hear any follow up on. So yeah, I'm not expecting much.
Just because it was bad doesn't mean it didn't happen.

And the Reboot "sequel" is going to be about kids who discover they are the next generation of Guardians in the network, not a conclusion to series. Basically it sounds more Code Lyoko than Reboot. I already expect it to be horrible.

As for the the topic at hand, ReBoot. There's a show that's now impossible to resolve in a satisfying manner (rip Tony Jay).

I'm also still waiting for the actual third season of Gargoyles (unless I'm miscounting and there was only the one season).

Speaking of Reboot, it is getting a sequel series...which is going to have scenes using CGI and scenes using real life actors.

There was a third season of Gargoyles. Unfortunately (?) it is not available on DVD and for w/e reason it seems unlikely we will be getting season 3 on DVD anytime soon. Then again it took nearly 8 years for the second half of season 2 to end up on DVD, so who knows. *shrug* I'm not sure if I ever saw anything in season 3 or not personally as it changed channels and writing teams between seasons.

What we really know about the events are the events that happened in the timeline that leads up to VLR.

In other words, the scenario in Zero Escape 3 may swap expected players with people we wouldn't expect. In other words:

this allows for Alice and/or Clover to enter the game. But it might also allow them to pull out Junpei/Tenmyouji etc

Well yes we only know the events of a single timeline. However, assuming multiple endings exist within the game, one of the timelines present in the game should result in the VLR timeline as that is essentially the "natural" course of events. Based on what June says in the ending sequence, the implication appears to be that Sigma and Phi, with their abilities, are incapable of preventing the disaster. On their own they are only able to maintain the status quo that we see in VLR. So that path should be obtainable in ZE3 and will probably be necessary to complete in order for '?' to find out what keeps going wrong in the time loop before it can be fixed. Heck June basically outright says, if I spoil you on the events of the third game then you'll never play it, implying it will be answered there. XP

So I don't think there will be anything significant like the 9 people at the Mars Test Site being changed from whoever they were in the VLR timeline. The original timeline will likely be quite possible to achieve, although I'm uncertain as to whether it will be the first timeline you can complete or the second to last. Should be one of those two though.

Random thought. In one of the comments on ZE3 from before the announcement, it was mentioned that the nonary game (and 9 characters?) would be split across 3 locations. Perhaps in addition to jumping timelines this time we also jump characters? So at the Mars Test Site we control Sigma, at NASA or w/e we control Junpei, and in a third unknown location we control K controlling the body of '?'. Just a random thought as to why Sigma and Phi aren't able to get to the better future on their own, they need to either get info or control events beyond just the Mars Test Site. We know that '?' is able to communicate with K, and since '?' is implied to be the actual player in the series, '?' likely had contact with Junpei during 999. Plus Junpei is likely the fourth or fifth most powerful esper in the series.
