To be fair, we all do stupid things online at 6AM.

Well, I don't. I just go to Panera Bread, which is the stupidest thing of all to do at 6AM. Or any time, really.

... I used to eat their like every day :(

...... I think I'll go cry myself to sleep.
*checks clock to see it is 6 AM* So posting on RPG Fans is stupid? Huh good to know. :p

The time stamps are pretty screwy too.  I wonder if at 6am he realized he 'dun fuck'd up good.
That would require him to make that realization over the course of minute after not realizing how badly he screwed up over the course of 8 hours. Although I suppose he might have realized he screwed up after waking up and then decided, "If I'm going to fuck up, then I am going to fuck up royally." Kind of a stupid attitude, but I guess it is possible.

Play Persona 2 Innocent Sin at the moment. Game is alright. The whole rumors becoming reality thing is an awesome set up. I am sort of meh on the characters at the moment. Hopefully that will improve.

Side note, I remembered that there were supposed to be some characters from Persona 1 who returned, and for some reason thought Lisa was one of the returning characters since it had been so long since I played Persona 1. Only to become confused when she was confused about Personas. Later looked it up in a wiki to see that no she is different from the character I was thinking of despite having a semi-similar design.

Might be a minority opinion here but unless you have any way to watch all of Series 7, the anniversary movie, AND the following Christmas special you might want to hold off on Series 5 +.

Edit: You know what? I'm just going to spoiler code this in case you want to go in full blind without any preconceptions. It holds no spoilers but it's 'negative nancy' opinion; so caveat emptor's given for free here.
Disagree, season 6 is enjoyable. Hell, it has my favorite episode of all time in it (The Doctor's Wife).
155  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Doctor Who on: January 19, 2014, 07:42:59 AM
I like pretty much any Episode with River in it. So, look forward to them? Some people hate her, but I don't understand it. I think shes fun.
Spoilers.

Finished Guided Fate Paradox. Ending was crap. I really don't know what they could have done which wouldn't have made me say that, but it was just uninspired and boring. Kind of sad as I had enjoyed the majority of the rest of the game.
I will see it for myself but I can almost never relate to those hyperbolic opinions. People saying FF X is a terrible game, people saying Xenosaga 2 is a terrible game because fuck you that's why.. Just ugh no... (or jumping on tired recycled bullshit internet bandwagon opinions, I mean not well constructed opinions)
Xenosaga 2 is horrible though. :p Well to be more precise, the battle system is horrible. The story is enjoyable as it has a pace increase from 1 which was a little slower than it ideally could have been. The battle system though was a miserable experience from what I can recall. I hated it while I was playing it, and I have no desire to ever replay it.

There's always White Knight Chronicles.
.....oh god right that is a thing. If you plan on playing this, just get 2 as it has the entirety of 1 on the disk with some play tweaks as well.
158  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Unsung Story: A Kickstarter by Yasumi Matsuno. on: January 19, 2014, 07:19:24 AM
Even though I've never cared for the story and characters that Matsuno creates because of how poorly structured it is, I've always loved the way he handles strategy elements. So I hope to god that this comes to PC at least and not on a mobile phone where I actually have to deal with my iPhone.

It's coming to PC. The initial basic release is for IOS, Android and PC.
Well it is coming to PC if it hits its funding goal (which it probably should). If it doesn't hit the goal then I believe it will be coming out to just IOS and Android.

So this Kickstarter has entered its last 48 hours, and it is going well. Currently at 355k last I checked. We must hit 400k and maybe 407k though because we must get playable Robot Masters and the Yellow Devil mini. So all of you support with your life savings!
160  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Unsung Story: A Kickstarter by Yasumi Matsuno. on: January 18, 2014, 06:47:27 AM
So currently at 345k. Generally speaking it seems to be slowing down, but that is pretty normal for a Kickstarter after a couple of days. It should probably hit its goals, although I'm not completely sure when to guess it will hit the goal. I'm thinking maybe 20 days from now, but will need more data points to see how much of a slow up it has.
Besides, FFXII wasn't really that bad (although I am concerned that there will be bullshit loot mechanics like in every other Matsuno game; though being an SRPG might mean that it'll work a hell of a lot better than in FFXII).
Yes it was! Worst numbered FF to date. Hell I rank it below FF3 and I despise FF3. :p

At least you didn't rank it below FFII. :p

And at any rate, in spite of my issues with FFXII (especially its end/post game), I would definitively rank it above FFXIII-1 since at least FFXII was not just a hallway simulator/cutscene treadmill/tech demo. At least there were things to discover, like hidden Espers, in FFXII's massive overworld (versus FFXIII's Land Down Under, which was little more than the Calm Lands+).

.....actually I did rank it below FF2.  The bottom of my list of FFs by quality is FF2 is better than FF3 which is better than FF12. :p As for 13, I actually got some enjoyment out of it despite its poor design decisions, so it is ranked somewhere near the middle of my list.
161  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Doctor Who on: January 17, 2014, 07:08:28 AM
My ranking for companions from best to worst:

The Last Centurion
Donna
Captain Jack
Mickey
Amy
Clara
Rose
Martha

I feel like I am missing someone because there is a lot of space between my feelings for Clara and Rose. If River was a proper companion I'd probably put her above Amy. Huh and looking at list, I seem to like characters who are attracted to the Doctor less.....well minus Captain Jack, but he loves everyone.
162  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Unsung Story: A Kickstarter by Yasumi Matsuno. on: January 17, 2014, 06:56:00 AM
So you're basing your opinion on Matsuno/this project after playing one (maybe two) of his games, one of which he had his involvement pulled halfway through? And I'm sure XII is being prominently displayed because...well, regardless of what you or anyone else thinks of it the fact is that it was critically a huge success and it does have its fans. It'd be like saying you have no faith in Kitase heading a work because you didn't like FF7 and they're using that in its advertising. I'm not saying it's an invalid feeling on a personal level, but there's not really any mystery as to why it's being used.
Oh I totally understand why it is being used since it apparently got a 40 from Fatimsu....which blows my mind on so many levels. But as you said, it is a personal feeling. Side note: I don't know what else Kitase has done so if someone was advertising a game based solely on his involvement and the fact that he did FF7, I'd probably just say meh. :p

Besides, FFXII wasn't really that bad (although I am concerned that there will be bullshit loot mechanics like in every other Matsuno game; though being an SRPG might mean that it'll work a hell of a lot better than in FFXII).
Yes it was! Worst numbered FF to date. Hell I rank it below FF3 and I despise FF3. :p

I can see being cautious about the developer, but Matsuno?  The guy practically created the modern SRPG and has an amazing resume.

That blows my mind.
If I am going to be precise, it isn't that I am cautious about him. I am just not impressed by the resume they are presenting and they are basically selling the game solely on his reputation. If they were presenting something about the rest of the team, then maybe I would be more interested. So it more of Matsuno- meh (which I am sure blows your mind just as much), rest of the team-cautious. All of which is resulting in giant red flags in my head.
163  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Unsung Story: A Kickstarter by Yasumi Matsuno. on: January 16, 2014, 07:08:56 AM
Yeah so I decided to pull my pledge yesterday. There are too many red flags in my mind for backing this to be a good idea. I have zero confidence that a mobile developer that specializes in card games is going to be able to make an amazing tactical RPG just because they have a single developer (especially one who is at least in part responsible for FF12).
Matsuno left (/was pulled from) the FFXII project about halfway through, so he didn't get to make the Final Fantasy he wanted to make. And don't forget the other games he did work on from beginning to end, like Ogre Battle/Tactics Ogre, Vagrant Story and that neat little love letter to tabletop RPGs titled Crimson Shroud.
Yeah, I've played none of those.

Given that FFXII was so fraught with executive meddling that two of the six playable characters were more or less shoehorned into the game, I'm willing to give the guy the benefit of the doubt on this one.

What I am hoping wont go down with this is if this game turns out to be game 7 of 9 or something like that. It didn't work for Tactics Ogre, it didn't work for Xenogears/saga, and it probably wont work for this either.
See, the thing is it is being put prominently on his little bio thing. So as far as I am concerned, either he or the developers of the game want us to associate him with the final product regardless of what his actual level of involvement was since it is listed in his bio section. Plus there are no real redeeming factors for that game for him short of it having a very nice bestiary, so any involvement he might have had makes me question why I thought backing this was ever a good idea.
164  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Doctor Who on: January 16, 2014, 06:52:54 AM
Rose's mum is a wonderful tart.  And I did like Mickey.  His comings and goings were effectively played each time Rose and the Doctor came back to town.  Captain Jack was also in a league of his own, despite how short-lived it was (anyone here watch Torchwood?).
Watched it, really would not recommend watching it. I mean sure Captain Jack is freaking awesome no matter where he is, but the series is just not worth it overall.
165  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: January 16, 2014, 06:46:25 AM
So I've been playing Guided Fate Paradox....and I am enjoying the story a lot more than I was expecting. I think I am on the second to last dungeon at the moment. Really hate the optional dungeons though. 50 freaking levels with no breaks (at least for the first one). >.>
