Direct confirmed Sun and Moon versions coming out in "Holiday 2016" for the 3DS. The implication is that this is the 7th generation games, so apparently this means we won't get a Z version- very odd. Wonder what they're going to be doing with that Perfect Zygarde, Volcanion and that special Ash-Greninja thing.
Well Volcanion is in the game code for the 6th generation games, so all they need to do for him is do an event distribution. I have doubts that they will ever add the Ash-Greninja to the games since it is supposed to be a perfect union between trainer and pokemon with the pokemon taking on the trainers appearance, so it would only work if every playable character from now on (even the girls) dressed like Ash (or they changed the lore on that appearance). Wondering the same thing about Perfect Zygarde though.

Part of me thinks they're keeping Missingno. mostly because it's probably one of the most famous glitches in video games. The glitch that caused Missingno. to appear was a pretty simple oversight so it isn't that hard to change the game so that Missingno. is in the game but it doesn't screw up your save file like it used to.

That and they can just bar people from uploading Missingno. onto Pokemon Bank anyway.

Or maybe Missingno. will be an official Pokemon now- that'd be hilarious.
I would probably pick up the virtual console games if we could transfer Missingo into the Pokémon Bank. XP

Yeah, the Kingdom of Zeal is both your first stop in Revelations, and where the latter half of takes place in. Its got some chill music and neat gimmicks, but its also very DV heavy which means you're going to want a lot of Royals to mess around with them. Its also where Azura comes clean about her real shtick and basically becomes the Robin to your Chrom.

It is called Zeal? I thought it was Valla. At least that is the name that MyCastles for the third route use.

Also Robin to my Chrom? Or Robin to my Batman?

European trademark ahoy.

Source: Serebii

FTR Pokemon has a history of filing lots of trademarks they never use, but still.
Those seem pretty detailed to be "just in case" filings. Plus the next movie has a new Pokémon not in the code for the current generation. Question is whether we are getting XZ and YZ before these so that they can add in the true form of the Zy...w/e that is in the show and movies now.

Actually, it's hinted that it's the world created from the ending of Xenoblade Chronicles, so I'd say less spiritual successor and more indirect sequel.
I highly doubt that it is the same world since as far as I can tell, Nopon are not native to Mira. There is a non-zero chance that the Nopon come from the world created at the end of Xenoblade Chronicles, but if so that is probably in a different universe than the world that the residents of New L.A. came from.

It may or may not be Junpei.
I think it is.

While Junpei should be involved in the events of the game in some way, I don't think he is going to be a participant...spoilers I guess? I'm not 100% sure if I need to spoiler block this, but I'm going to err on the safe side...

According to the dialogue in VLR Junpei was at mission control during the events of the Mars test mission. So assuming the nonary game is taking place at the Mars test site, then Junpei will not physically be there during the events of the game. During the path which results in the stable time loop, you probably won't contact him during the events of the game as I got the impression he was unaware of there being a nonary game at the Mars test site. On the other routes though there is no telling what his interaction will be

So took the day off yesterday (new refrigerator, yay) and made some major progress in Conquest. I feel like the story is better than people have been implying it to be. There are certainly weak points, but nothing horrible yet (except for maybe Azura's plan...I'm not 100% certain how I feel about that). I honestly don't think that Corrin's guilt for his choice has been too extreme, and frankly I find Corrin's lack of guilt in Birthright to be more of a flaw in Birthright rather than Conquest as he should be feeling more guilt over betraying all that he has ever known.

Side note, I do love how chapter 15
takes place in another world that is apparently at the bottom of a bottomless pit, and is likely never brought up again in Conquest. It is silly and probably a good hint as to what is to come in Revelations.

MBTI is kind of bonkers, as far as I can tell, introversion, intuition, feeling, and perceiving are all basically the same thing. Extroversion, thinking, judging, and sensing are all basically the same phenomenon.

The idea of duality though is probably more useful, these emotional elements compete with each other and manifest themselves in other people, etc.
Eh, as a card carrying INTJ, I don't think I can agree that those splits of the attributes are the same. I am certainly not an extrovert simply because I fall more along the lines of thinking and judging.

I'll let you know how I react to people trying to flirt with me as soon as I'm in that situation...

...'cause that's like, never actually happened.
Seconded. :(

Beyond 3rd Zero and Blue, there are full HD remakes with additional content for these games, as well as for FC/SC ... yes? No? Falcom produced at a rate faster than XSEED could localize and publish. That's why we have Cold Steel and a confirmation of Cold Steel 2 when SnK 3rd is still floating in the aether (granted, I'm told it's not a great entry in the series).
There are enhanced ports of FC/SC, but those were not done by Falcom. I don't remember all the details regarding them, but the short version is that Falcom licensed the games out to another studio which ported them and added full voice overs to them. I don't think there was any content change in terms of story or sidequests. I know there were some tweaks to the battle system which made it very abusable. Specifically, I recall there was a turn effect (or w/e those are called) which allowed you to use crafts for free, so you break into those turns, and use an S-craft for free and then repeat whenever the effect was coming up.

I would not expect the enhanced ports to ever make it over since the voice acting budget would make it unprofitable for XSeed.

^ Dude, it's practically over already. :(
Dammit. Oh well, I'll manage somehow or another. >.>

Beat Birthright last night. Game was fun. Story was fine. A lot of minor stuff that is unexplained. Looking forward to trying out the other two paths to see what their takes on the story are. Looking forward to Revelations more since it will have explanations to the minor unexplained stuff (I say as though I haven't been spoiled already). But first, female Birthright exclusive supports! Hopefully I can speed run this using my overpowered amiibo units from my logbook.

I am so annoyed that I got this on Day 1 and I STILL have no frickin' clue what Aeolus and Ranadiel are talking about.  It's Xenoblade X all over again.  *sigh*

Lol. DV=Dragon vein (point) for MyCastle. As for the prison that Aeolus was talking about, there are two units in the game (one per side) that have personal skills that allow them to capture enemy units and then deposit them in a prison that you can build in MyCastle. From there you can convince them to join you. There are a few enemies with unique portraits that you can capture (1 in a Birthright story map, 2 in Conquest story maps, and 10 in child paralogues).

Agent Carter has been amazing as well, if anyone is watching that.  Probably the best show Marvel has ever put out.  Every single episode is a treat.
Wait season 2 has started? Fudge, I need catch up then.

My Progress thus far:

And now I'm going to run Invasion 1 instead of Chapter 14 (because I want to recruit the boss and I'm fresh out of DVs for a Prison).
My plan continues.
You know you can just visit castles to gain DVs. I don't know the exact conversion rate because I sort of zone out while doing it, but it is like 4 or 5 unique visits per DV.

Sounds like you are currently one chapter ahead of me as I am about to go through chapter 13. I'm really starting to notice that about half of my units just are not getting enough exp resulting in them falling further and further behind. Oh just occurred to me that I am probably about the right level for the amiibo battles. Time to go recruit me some new units!

In case anyone cares, my castle address is:

Current castle has peaches and quartz.

See now, I was always under the impression that XS2 was the major misstep and 3 was a step up from it.
That's because 2 was a massive shitfest in terms of gameplay. The battle system was so fucking terrible in every regard that any fondness I had for the game (mind you I LOVED 1 and 3, big fan of the entirety of xenosaga) will always be plagued by it. Also, the change in shion's VA was kind of shit. Otherwise, 2's story was still fairly xeno-esque...guess that's a positive.
Yeah this sounds about right to what I remember from XS2. Additionally I was not a fan of the Shion redesign in XS2.

XS3 is on my List, since I got a copy (and a PS2!) gifted to me.  I'm wondering what kind of experience I can expect from it...
Assuming you have not played XS1 or XS2, I think the most accurate description of what your experience will be is confused. I don't recall how much of a recap there is at the beginning of XS3, but I have a hard time believing it is possible to do a recap that covers everything and isn't ridiculously long and/or confusing.
165  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Is your favorite RPG in one of the first five you tried? on: February 16, 2016, 06:54:36 AM
No. My favorite RPG is Ar Tonelico, which I 'm pretty sure was somewhere in the 40s or later in terms of play order.

At this point I really don't remember my first 5 RPGs. My first was Breath of Fire, which was probably followed by Breath of Fire 2. Not sure where I went from there.
