O.O How can you guys hate Minsc? He is one of the great Bioware characters of all time. It is a very rare playthrough where he is not rampaging across the battlefield for me through the entire game!

I prefer my characters logical or cute.
He's neither.

My usual go to is:
- Aerie
- Jaheira
- Viconia
- Imoen
- Anomen (swap for Sarevok later)


Anomen is kind of a bitch but he's so damn powerful.
I think my vanilla party is pretty similar, only trade your paladin (or was he a fighter/cleric?) for Minsc and (if it is completely vanilla) trade your evil party member for....Nadia? I think that is actually my rotating party member slot until ToB. If I have mods installed...things can get insane in terms of party juggling.

There are enough NPCs in the game that you can easily ditch those you don't like.
I usually kill Minsc on the spot when I meet him.

Yeah, I was tempted to do the same. Seems even the PC couldn't stand him anymore. Properly equipped + buffed Viconia is my off tank now and it's working fine so far, should have ditched Minsc sooner.

So I watched episode 1 of the Danganronpa 3, Despair Arc last night. Weird thing is that my first thought while watching this was, "I wonder who the homeroom teacher for DR1's class was." Doubt it will come up, but I am curious. Not a whole lot to say about the episode itself since a large portion of it was introducing characters that I already knew from the game.

I am kind of sad that I was right about seeing (DR2 spoilers)...

Code:
Chiaki in the preview. Her odds of surviving this arc are so low. I suppose there is a small chance that she might survive and end up being the one to being together the research of the Ultimate Programmer, Ultimate Therapist, and Ultimate Brain Surgeon. However if that was the case then I feel like she would have entered the Neo World Program after her substitute had been deleted. Oh well I can continue to hope for her survival against all odds.

Finished Cornelius' story in Odin Sphere last night, thereby making it farther than I ever did in the original game.

Mercedes' story is adorable as can be, but HOLY HELL do I hate playing as her.
As I recall, she was worse in the original. Look on the bright side though, she eventually becomes the best boss killer in the game (combo her skill that elimates reload with Summon Spirits and prepare to watch everything die). Also you are in for a treat if you didn't get this far in the original as some of the best parts in the story (at least imo) have yet to come.

Danganronpa 3 : Despair Act : Slice of Life High School Shenanigans!

Danganronpa 3 : Future Act : Who wants to talk about MURDERS!! Yayyyyyy.

Nah but I'm sure Despair will get dark very soon, theres already a lot of groundwork being laid for the Tragedy.
Yay someone else is watching it! I was wondering when I wasn't seeing anyone else talking about it. Wait a sec, has episode 2 of Despair Arc aired? *checks funimation.com* Yes it has! That means I can finally watch episode 1! Once I remember how to navigate their horrible site! XP

So recently some new social links have been revealed.

http://persona5.jp/school_life/cooperation.html

Fortune- A fortune teller
Temperance- Your teacher (who happens to also work at a maid café?)
Devil- A photographer
Tower- Some gamer (?) kid
Star- A shogi player at your school
Moon- A Phantom Theives fanboy who is in your class
Sun- A politician? (really not completely sure on this one)

Really like Fortune's aesthetic, and I really do not care for Temperance's maid outfit look. I'm really not sure whether I am dreading Tower or Sun more at the moment.

Last mainline Dynasty Warriors came out in November, the next one's due in August. In that time period, so far we've had Arslan and Hyrule Warriors Legends, while Attack on Titan, Berserk and Dragon Quest Heroes 2 are likely before the year is out. They now how to turn those out.

That said, I'm all for these games when they have larger than life characters. One Piece Pirate Warriors was surprisingly fun, almost by virtue of its wacky art alone.
O.o What? Last main game I can find for Dynasty Warriors is 8 which came out in 2013. Last expansion version of 8 was Empires which came out Feb. 2015 in the U.S. I must be missing something here.

I love me some Gust ... but I personally didn't like seeing the switch from NISA to Tecmo Koei for Gust game localizations, and the hand that T-K has had with Gust in general. I think the games are also coming out at too fast a pace, kinda like ... oh, I don't know, Dynasty Warriors? ;_;

Are Dynasty Warriors games really coming out too fast a pace? I don't remember when the last main game out. If we are including spin offs...I'm still waiting for Gundam Warriors 5 to be announced already (seriously I checked for any announcements earlier today).

Wow. O.O I just watched the first episode of Danganronpa 3 Future Arc...and wow. This promises to be a fun ride.

I don't think it has been mentioned before that the Future Foundation was primarily made up of Ultimate from Hope Peak, but if it has come up I never really thought about what that would mean for the clashes between the Remnants of Despair and Future Foundation. I really hope the Despair Arc finishes up with an episode or two focusing on that because that conflict looked amazing.

As for this specific episode, it does an excellent job of setting things up for the arc and I could really feel Naegi's horror at the turn at the very end. I'm sure one of these characters is a traitor, but I don't have enough of a feel for them yet to figure out which one is most likely. Clearly we are supposed to suspicious of the one who was late, but that is way too obvious. Also, obvious prediction for the end of the arc:

Code:
Cast of DR2 will end up saving the survivors at the very end proving that Naegi was right to save them and tying things back together with the Despair arc.

Alright so my mood has leveled off now after a day. Wouldn't say I am in a great mood, but I'll recover. Don't know if or when I am going to give this whole online dating thing another try though.

Probably easier said than done, but: create opportunities?

Like, take some classes, join a club...
Eh, I enjoy my hermit lifestyle for the most part. :p (And I recognize that could be part of the problem).

Your profile: BE HONEST!  It's really tempting to lie your ass off and try to make yourself sound better than you actually are.  DON'T DO IT! You want prospective mates to like you, not who you're pretending to be.
Ha, like I'm even capable of telling a lie.

Be prepared to get rejected A LOT.  Don't get too butthurt about that pretty girl not returning your painstakingly written message.  There are literally 1000's more perfectly wonderful people to take her place.
Eh, while I recognize this one mentally, I just don't think I am wired to be able to do this.

My advice...

Fuck life, get stronk, destroy the world.
Eh I was thinking of killing God instead. Although I suppose that could have the side effect of destroying the world? :p

Finished my third playthrough of Persona 4 Golden last night and got the platinum this time. Kind of sad that I have completely finished the story of these characters now (at least until we eventually get Persona 5 Arena with returning Persona 3 and Persona 4 characters).

Not sure what I'll play next, I picked up Street Fighter 5 on Prime Day, and downloaded the story DLC last night. So I might go for that.

That bear pokemon is my new favorite pokemon.

...I like bears. 
But it isn't a bear, it is a red panda (which is more of a raccoon than panda).
They say it's a bear, I'm going with bear.
Who says it is a bear? I mean it has a raccoon tail.

the red pandabear thing hugs things to death if you look at the magazine article
maybe you guys should stop saying it looks boring before it hears you
I dunno I get the impression it hugs things to death and calls them George. So having it dislike you might actually make you safer from it. :p

OKCupid is a horrible place, especially for people like you who tend to get a bit overzealous about this sort of thing. The way profile views are tracked and presented on the receiving end makes everyone who bothers to investigate someone's profile look like a stalker to that person.

I honestly think the easiest way to find love is to stop looking for it (not literally mind you, then you just end up like me). Just try to keep in mind that right now you're looking for a companion, not a soulmate.
Eh, I have the visitor thing turned off most of the time, so there shouldn't be any traces of most of my page views. :p

And not sure about the stop looking for it advice, that doesn't work too well when you are a hermit that generally only leaves his house for work. No real opportunities to meet anyone. :p

*sigh* Normally don't come into this thread, but I feel a need to vent (well more cry than anything else) and I can't think of any better place to do it. So you guys get to read about parts of my life that I don't discuss with my irl friends. Congrats! I'm sure this is going to be incredibly boring, incredibly sad, incredibly uninteresting, or some combination thereof.

So backstory, I'm currently in my late 20s and have never been on a date in my life due to a combination of factors which I am not getting into because that would triple the length of this post. Earlier this year I took a shot at online dating where I messaged a few girls...and got zero responses. One of them hit me pretty hard because for reasons I don't particularly remember I got myself too emotionally invested before sending the message, so I decided to take a break for while.

Last Saturday randomly got the thought to see whether there was anyone new up that seemed interesting. Found one particular profile where it seemed like we had personalities that would mesh well and that I was really attracted to. Spent some time looking through her question answers (this is on okCupid and she had a lot of questions answered) and figuring out what to write. Finally sent her a message on Tuesday, and then waited. I was nervous the entire time I was waiting (let me tell you week with butterflies in your stomach not fun).

She finally signed in again last night and...nothing. I got a profile view last night that I assume was her after reading her message, but other than that, nada. And so I am left here wondering, why do I keep doing this to myself? I suppose she could still respond if she wants to look over my question answers and didn't have time last night, but realistically she isn't interested in me, and I knew she wasn't going to be interested in me because that is how the universe seems to work for whatever reason. I'm sure I am doing something wrong, but I have no idea as to what (other than not having gotten dating experience back during high school and college?) or how to fix it, assuming it can be fixed. But yeah, I really don't know why I keep doing this to myself when I know this is how it is always going to turn out. I suppose on some level I thought this one was going to be different since okCupid had us with stupid high compatibility (99% overall, lowest category is religion at 79%). But I knew this wasn't going to work. I knew I shouldn't get invested, and I did it anyways because I only have two settings emotionally, "All in" or "Meh." And perhaps the worst part of all this is that I know that I am going to do this to myself again. I really should just give up on the idea of a significant other, but part of me just refuses to let it go. >.>

Okay, venting done. I think. Not really looking for advice, just needed to get that off my chest. Time to go drown my sorrows by finally finishing up my last Persona 4 Golden playthrough. Will be interesting to see if I even remember to check for replies to this tomorrow since I normally don't come into this thread.

tl;dr: I'm a moron. :p
15  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The tri-Ace General Discussion (& Star Ocean 5) Thread on: July 17, 2016, 05:18:10 AM
So, Star Ocean aside, what did folks think of the first English trailer for Exist Archive (hey, that's an upcoming Tri-Ace game).  http://www.rpgfan.com/news/2016/5060.html

The trailer did scream "I'm more anime than anime!!!" especially with that pink kitty Power Ranger at 1:07 and that music (which I was happily bobbing my head to.)  So hopefully that game turns out to be a fun and enjoyable romp.  I'm obviously not expecting Le Morte d'Arthur or Citizen Kane, but I am hoping for characters where I say, "...alright, I'll hang out with you guys.  You seem like fun" and solid gameplay.  So far, it seems like it could be an apology for SO5.     
I've been looking forward to the game since it was announced, but the first "English" trailer did nothing for me since I'm pretty sure it is just the boot up movie.
