Huh, wonder if the Imprisoned is going to fight like Mobile Armors in DWG.....Also wonder if he will be controllable like MAs are in DWGR.

I've been looking harder than most, tbh. I hated Eureka Seven (despite doing a lot of things I normally praise with Mecha, it doesn't do them in a way I enjoy and does a lot of other things I don't like, too), and had a lot of problems with Code Geass and Gundam 00 as they're pretty much the poster boys for everything wrong with the genre right now. Gurren Lagann is full-on Super Robot and doesn't count towards what I'm talking about. Gundam Build Fighters is a myth.

Only ones I got left to check that might be promising are Macross Frontier and Overman King Gainer, but I've heard a lot of complaints about them, so I can't say I'm in any rush to watch them.
Okay, I have to ask what is everything that is wrong with the genre right now? Because I love both Gundam 00 and Code Geass (just rewatched all of Code Geass two weekends ago) and I am curious as to what makes you grumpy about both.

I've only read the manga of that. Let me just say that, assuming the anime follows the manga completely, that series is going to get messed up...well that implies it was at some point not messed up. It will get more messed up in the future.

Sir, you were NOT lying. This series gets more twisted the further it goes for sure. I'm only 14 eps in but I sure hope it keeps up this pace. AWESOME series thus far.
All I am going to say is look forward to episode 24 (just skimmed through the episode list) that is when the most iconic scene of the series should occur. Also do not watch the OVA, it has the last chapter of the series in it, but the series works fine without that.

I can't even find the words on how scummy this is.
And this is the reason why the cloud sucks generally speaking (especially for always on stuff), because your ability to access the cloud is entirely dependent on a company feeling like giving you access.

I've been having a hard time deciding on which three characters I am planning on using as my final group.

WTF?  Is that normally something you decide before you've even started playing the game?
Yes? That's not to say that it can't change when I play the game (which I suppose makes the term final slightly inaccurate), but I will generally go into a game with some kind of idea of which party members will be the ones I drag around the most often. For JRPGs I tend to just plant firmly into my party once I get them. For a game like Dragon Age Inquisition, I will switch them around to manipulate affection (or whatever the equivalent is) until I have everyone maxed out where I want them and then stick with the final party unless I ended up liking someone else more.

Honestly this batch of characters is less interesting to me than DA2's batch. I've been having a hard time deciding on which three characters I am planning on using as my final group. Right now I am leaning towards Casssandra, Varric, and Dorian with my character as either a Knight Enchanter or a Warrior of some kind (depends on how early you can choose a specialization).

I bet it tastes like chicken though.
Nah, Trademark infringement does though (which this project also seems to have). Copyright infringement tastes like a hot dog.
143  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Zelda Musou on: July 05, 2014, 07:16:13 AM
The game is going to have a genuine plot, so perhaps the TP focus is based around when the story is supposed to take place in relation to other titles? Just a guess.
It has been stated in one of the interviews regarding the title that the game doesn't exist in any of the current timelines. I mean I'm pretty sure there was no killer moon in TP. :p

I smell copyright infringement!
145  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Zelda Musou on: July 04, 2014, 07:09:08 AM
Her gameplay looks interesting....but I think I am going to hate playing as her more than any other character in a Musou game because of mannerisms and such. x_x

Future events such as these will affect you in the future.

Newcomer Lana's video!

...By Zelda standards, she's pretty chatty.
Love that moveset.

Was planning on playing Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn today, but sadly it isn't getting a preload like it was supposed to, so I might not actually get to play it till tomorrowish due to download times. Dammit Sony. x_x

Just beat the story in Dragon Age II. That was a damn fine game, I don't get the hate. Sure it could have used larger areas and more places to explore because it gets kind of tiresome going to the same places over and over, but I really did feel like I had an influence over Kirkwall and watched it evolve over the game based on my decisions. It was really neat. Same goes with the characters. They relationships with them really sold the story and setting for me. These are memorable characters (maybe even more so that the first game). The story is awesome too and should have major consequences either way you go about it in the next game. It does feel more like an action game than RPG at times, but Mass Effect does too and I don't think it's a bad thing. I just think that's why RPG purists prefer the first game. I like them about the same, but for different reasons. I like this one because it has a better quest system, better menus, better graphics, and much less confusing item and crafting system. I like the first one for its exploration, mythology, and overall plot. They make a good one two punch. Can't wait for Inquisition! I can finally go watch some trailers without fear of spoilers haha.

Question for my Dragon Age friends: Any of the DAII DLC worth getting? I looked into Mark of the Assassin, but it just looks like a Felicia Day fangasm that has no effect on any of the story at all. I barely even know who she is anyway.
Glad you enjoyed it.  Out of curiosity which faction did you side with at the end? Now for DLC, I would say that all of the story DLC are worth playing....with some caveats. The Exiled Prince would have been worth it had you gotten it before hitting chapter 3, at this point thought I don't think you can actually run through it now so actually pass on it. Legacy is a must play as it has a major major revelation in it which there is some speculation may be leading into DAI. I recommend brining your sibling and maybe Anders along if you can. Mark of the Assassin is enjoyable, but it is more of a story about Tallis than Hawke. So if you don't care about Tallis, then it will not be worth it,

I really enjoy watching Code Geass, but there are a tons of things it does that I usually give other shows a lot of flak for, and I don't think I could really describe why it works for me when shows with similar themes and excecution make me cringe.
Any particular examples?

Rewatched all of Code Geass over the weekend except for the last few episodes of R2 (which I'll watch tonight). Still love the entire series. Really is great.

Just checked out the first 5 eps of The Future Diary this weekend.

Thought it was gonna suck at first when I saw the cliche tool of a main character... Boy was I wrong. It only took the first five episodes to safely say I'm hooked.
