I saw Amazing Spider-Man 2 tonight. I won't post spoilers.

It felt.......disjointed. That's the best word I can think of.

There is far too much focus on the love plot between Peter and Gwen. It felt like a soap opera.

The villains felt really rushed, particularly Electro. Overall, it was disappointing - which sucks because Spider-Man is my favourite comic character.

Go see Captain America 2 instead, it's a much better movie.
Review I've seen of it liked it. I have a distinct feeling that this movie is going to be very divisive. Oh well I'm still going to see it as I loved the first one (in large part because of the Gwen/Peter dynamic).

I'm interested in the game, but I haven't been following the news too closely. Just preordered it yesterday.

Took me way too long for me to realize Alternis Dim's real identity ...but whatever.  It took me way too long to realize how goddamn flawed Edea's memories are.  How they hell did she NOT recognize Ringabell?  Aren't her and Alternis supposed to be really good friends?  Do they ever explain that or ...was Alternis just wearing a helmut 8 days a week, 25 hours a day?

Well I believe it is stated somewhere that Artemis had basically given himself to the darkness (aka become a dark knight) before Edea's father found him. So yeah, he was probably in permanent Dark Knight form when he met Edea. Either that or he decided to get his unholy hair do after he started wearing the helmet and she didn't recognize Ringabel with that eldritch horror on his head. I think the better question is why the heck did Ringabel think Ringabel was his name.

So this weeks' World Trigger was interesting, we actually had shonen characters retreat at the when it became clear that they were outmatched in a fight. It was weird to see, yet it is logical and sort of duh. Hurray for tactics! Really do love this series because its tacticalish approach to the conflicts.

do you really need 100% of events to get a girl's ending?  I would think some of them wouldn't be required.  That would also mean you can't keep a save near the end of the game and get multiple endings from it because of the choices where you can only pick one girl. 
You don't need 100% (because that requires either a ton of save scumming or multiple playthroughs), I meant all of their (heroine) storyline events.

Tell me with a straight face that Peco isn't the most adorable thing ever.. Just try me. Talk shit about Peco and you will become my arch nemesis.
I guess I am your arch-nemesis then because he looks horrifying to me. Like an old man's head with tiny legs. Personally I'm not a big fan of BoF3's art style. *shrug*


On one hand I hate the Agarest's drawing of girls, and more girls, and MORE girls, and usually a trope of each type.  But the designs are so unique and brilliantly drawn and coloured that I can't help but to look.  Plus, I love the "generational differences" made by each new protagonist (I think it's usually just hair colour --- but I love nonetheless for that detail).
Usually it is just hair color and clothing color, but you do the sons of the winged girls who end up with wings also.

You could also contact sony for a service repair, which should run you 130 bucks in the states. Iirc they offer to "upgrade" your older system for a newer model too if you want.
I've done that twice, they just send you a refurb.....hence why I had to do it twice since the first one died again within like two months to the same problem.

Ending Requirements:
Normal- I'm not 100% sure, but I think finish the game without meeting the requirements for any endings
Character Endings: Finish all events and choose them in the final chapter
Harem Ending: See all character endings and meet requirements for all of them (auto happens the first time you meet the requirments, choice after that)

I personally am wailing on all the dungeons and side quests (Wake is currently level 50 and I just beat chapter 5, basically every boss dies to Bond Drive!). Fyi, you unlock the Dungeon Master class when you beat five sub-dungeons. Dungeon Master lets you see traps and if you have three in a group enemies have a harder time detecting you.

Edit: Lmao, I just did my first classmating of chapter 6, and ass shot. I figured I would be getting a new angle but I was not expecting that.

Yeah Chloe is sort of Mary Suish, which makes me wonder why Feene is treated like a goddess. I do however like Chloe's school outfit......her battle outfit not so much.

I'm about to enter the 5th dungeon myself. I'm enjoying most of the heroine events. Most of them seem to have some unique (to me at least) twist to them. Narika is still extremely boring though. >.>

I never really messed around with the Dark Knight, but I am voting Ninja as most broken because if properly set up it can do cap damage x8 in a turn.

Explain yourself sir!

I can't seem to deal much damage no matter how much I try. 

*about to go up against Final Boss* o___o
I haven't played in more than a month, but what I recall is that to maximize the ninja you need the skill that increases damage when all attacks hit and someway to ignore the hit cap limit (I forget if it is a Diva spell or a skill from another class). Then boost atk and hit as much as possible through buffs and such. Bravex4 to hit for up to 8x max damage per turn. And that is all I remember about it.

Feene I'm still up in the air about as well. I haven't gotten any of her proper events yet. Just the 'give a gift' filler and the whole one liner about how her family specializes in a martial art technique revolving around kneeing men in the nuts.

Which normally might fall under 'eh' but considering how "OMG, I don't wanna damage God's Gift!" every other female in this game is, having one that just comes up and offers to demonstrate that technique (without any malice or intended to carry through in a harmful way) is strangely 'refreshing'.

Also. Class'man'ting and Tri-matiing...oh game, how you never fail to surprise me.
I'm very 'eh' on Feene, she comes off as too "perfect." She is perfect including being too humble to realize how perfect she is. It just doesn't work for me. Still leaning towards Ellie as the most interesting. Ms. Ghost is interesting also. A shame Ms. Ghost is stuck in the story of such an uninteresting character. Worst one is easily Narika though.

Side note, anyone going for platinum might want to check out this thread I made on Gamefaqs as I discuss some findings regarding a couple of missable events.

Edit: Oh wow, I almost forgot to mention this. Got some girls to three affection yesterday....wow does the classmating scene get awkward around then. What with the girl throwing her head back multiple times. All I can do whenever I see it is laugh because wtf. I just don't know how to process what I am viewing, and there are still stages left so it is only going to get more hilarious I am sure.

From what I understand, a lot of those old tales were never children's stories at all, back in their origins.  They were just general folklore.  Somehow those "fairy tales" got watered down into becoming children's stories over time.  Examples in this tangent include The Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White.

Might apply to some of them, but not the Little Mermaid as the last page of the original manuscript as modified by the author is basically emotionally blackmailing children (the Little Mermaid can go to heaven sooner if you are good little boys and girls).

I was kind of shocked to be reminded while playing Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD that there actually *were* allusions in the original to the Keyblade War, the Worlds' origin, and even Xehanort's betrayal (sort of). I do think a lot of plot elements from the rest of the games still kind of made a lot of the first game irrelevant, but I had forgotten that those three big ones do kind of fit with the original.

I think I remember what the allusions to the Keyblade War and the Worlds's origin were, but I'm drawing a blank on Xehanort's betrayal.

There was abit in Ansem's Report when he met Mickey that the Keyblade was used by one to bring peace to the Worlds and by another to bring ruin, or something like that... it's a bit of a stretch but it sort of works.
Huh I just took that as a reference to the Keyblade War, although I guess it does make sense for Mickey to be talking about Xehanort considering retcons.

From my experiences, Dark Knight is the most powerful of all damage-dealing classes. With Adversity, Gloom and Rage, outputting massive damage is pretty easy and reliable. If you've also got someone restoring BP to them (Merchant, Performer), then they're pretty much unstoppable.

That said, Spiritmaster is the most broken/OP class due to Stillness.
I never really messed around with the Dark Knight, but I am voting Ninja as most broken because if properly set up it can do cap damage x8 in a turn.

I'm not convinced Victoria isn't a matured baby or something.  I don't get what/why her body is the way it is.  Ew.
You get new details each refight with them. Although one detail....that isn't discussed by Victor but that you can gather from otherconversations is that:
Victoria was actually supposed to be the next Water Vestal, but well stuff happened and she gets rejected.

Alternatively, you can use a hair dryer to buy maybe another day or so of use for it in order to get the disc out and back up your data (look up youtube videos). Question then becomes whether you want to buy a new one or get a refurb. I recommend against a refurb because it will probably die shortly afterwards.
