Everyone I know interested in this game only ever talks about the Vita version

They gotta get something to play

They'll have Conception II before it comes out.

I'm not sure whether that's a good or bad thing.
It goes beyond the concepts of good and bad into the territory of amazing.

Add $100 dollars from my grandma to the pile. Although the cash I got kind of got wiped out yesterday  when I had to get my car's exhaust system's flex pipe replaced in order to pass state inspection.

I got:
-One of those blankets with sleeves. What do you call those again? I'll just add it to the blanket stack...
A snuggie?

Will you be able to dispense weapons and upgrades to other players and tell them to get their weapons ready (and by the fifth expansion, gain the ability to get abducted by Not-Protoman at the start)?
I assume no....I'm not sure what he can do instead.

I hate the idea of making your kid play older games. When I was a kid and someone tried to get me play an Atari or etc I realized that it sucked and I could be playing NES. Games are meant to be fun, not history lessons.

But I'll probably never have kids so the matter at hand an my opinion of it is moot.
To be fair there are old games that are enjoyable. So I can totally see introducing your kids to gaming first through good old games. Hell I first became obsessed with gaming due to playing the NES at my aunt and uncle's place the year the N64 came out.

Got through the third boss in Pandora's Tower. Not sure why I was able to beat it the time I did. But whatever, all the other bosses have been fairly easy so far.

Yep, C-minuses.  I'll admit, the loading screens drawn by all those guest artists bumped up my graphics score a bit.  Those actually were nice. 
Honestly I found most of those to be ugly (like the cut scene art) with only one or two exceptions.

So Christmas present from the game maker.....Dr. Light player piece and game card for Deluxe editions (add-on for others) that is a Kickstarter exclusive. Being able to play as Dr. Light hurts my brain.

Moved onto Pandora's Tower now. Game is fun, but I really hate the chain controls and the third boss is kicking my ass in part because of it. Obvious solution is to grind for levels and materials to make the armor that is currently available to me, but I don't know how much that will really help when my problem is more of being unable to hit the weak point with chain while running around. Plus when I do hit it, I can't charge the chain without getting hit wasting the charge, so I have to hit him like 20 times. Maybe I'll watch a youtube video of the fight and see if I can learn anything from that.

Let me tell you, I've gotten a little bit of flak for my review of that game, most people saying I rated it too highly.  But I totally stand by it.  I actually kinda liked it.  It wasn't a great game by any means and not one I would play a second time, but it actually had a shred of potential.  I still think Last Rebellion's battles did the "break zone" thing better than Xenosaga 2 or Fate/Extra's battles did. Oddly enough, the hardest part of Last Rebellion is the second dungeon.  Once you get through that, the rest of the game is pretty easy. 

As for me, I'm playing an indie RPG to review for the site. 


Huh I don't think I've read that review at all. So let me just take a quick look at it....and just looking at the scorecard you deserve every single piece of flak you got for that score. :p Actually I think you deserve more, so here you go. 70% on Story and Graphics? Really? Reading the review seems to be accurate (minus saying the battle system is "fun"). I probably consider Xenosaga Episode 2's battle system better, but that is the difference between being second to last and last. So yeah game was horrible easily worst game I have played in a long time. Only bright side of playing the game, I don't have to dread it being in my queue any more.

A Dilbert Day Calendar

An Old Navy sweatshirt(if you are going with this as a present then why even bother?)

100 dollar refund from my energy company(no idea why)
20 day work week

From Myself (since Thanksgiving)
12 TV Season DVDs
8 Movie DVD/Blu-ray (several of which are collections)
A bunch of JPop CDs

3 versions of Munchkin + 2 expansions

I think I did the better job of shopping for myself.

Currently playing Last Rebellion. I've had since launch where I got into a single random encounter, found it took me like 10 min and decided this was a waste of my time. Still hate the game. I'm just playing it because it has been on my backlog for more than 2 years and it seemed appropriate to torture myself with it during Christmas since I am avoiding the torture of seeing family this year.....Christmas is about self inflicted torture right?

I'm not familiar enough with One Piece to make predictions on most of those, but I will predict that between Robin and Usop getting toy-ified, my money's on Robin. Last I knew, she's the more powerful and thus the more likely to suffer the Worf Effect.
I don't think there is a need for the Worf Effect in this case since:

Code:
Sugar has managed to turn a freaking army into a horde of harmless toys. She might of had help, but she still has an extremely OP power. Besides I think Robin v Sugar is more interesting than Usop v Sugar because Robin is a horrible match up against Sugar's power while Usop is probably the one of the members of the crew most suited for fighting her since he uses exclusively ranged attacks.

So Shonen Jump has announced the finalists for the Global Manga competition. You can check them out here. I really don't care for the reader they are using, but that might partially be because it is grabbing the data from Japan. Putting my thoughts on the series below in the spoiler box.

Code:
So overall I thought they were overall kind of lame. Sweat Man was....how the hell is this a finalist? Golden Rabbit was alright I guess, not something I would really want to read regularly, but it is alright as a stand alone. Morning Star was my vote. I'm not going to say it was great, but I do want to see where it goes. The biggest flaw with it though seems to be the lack of backgrounds. Hell at one point I thought something lying on the ground was supposed to be jumping because I didn't realize it was supposed to be an aerial shot at first. I think it does have potential though. Boom was....weird. I didn't like it, but I suspect it will do well in the rankings due to fan service and just the general weirdness. The Team Before Daybreak was alright. It seemed way too abrupt, but for a one-shot it wasn't offensive. El Viento will probably win the thing. I didn't really care for it due to a combination of disliking the combination of swords and westerns and disliking the main character's "eagle eye" ability. However I suspect that it will get a good number of votes just from the thumbnail image from people who don't have time to read all six.

Found it weird that none of the finalists are from Japan.

Oh and hey look took less than a day for Bleach to start sucking again. Well played Kubo, well played. However I shall cheer for Mask de Masculine nonetheless!

Now onto One Piece 372-
Code:
Chapter was alright, but I mostly want to discuss the chapter because we now have a rough idea of how Donflamingo's troops are positioned, so it is time to make predications about fight match ups! Obviously Franky is taking on Senor Pink in the battle of the perverts. Luffy is fighting Donflamingo. Giolla, Violet, Monet, and Vergo are all obviously out of the fight now (well I guess Giolla could come back in theory). I don't expect Baby 5 or Buffalo to get major fights since they were both taken out by Nami and Usop once. Sugar seems to be a Robin and Usop fight, but I'm betting one of the two of them will be turned into toys during the fight (thinking Usop). Dellinger seems like he should be a Sanji fight, but Sanji shouldn't be returning to the island.....oh I just had a nice idea for that fight. Okay I think I have a rough idea of how I want to distribute the fights now.

Donflamingo- Luffy

Trebol- Toy Soldier returned to human form (the undefeated champion of the Arena who I forgot the name of)
Sugar- Robin and Usop (Usop turned into a toy midfight, Robin just barely being able to win by trusting in the toyified Usop)
Violet- "Beaten" by Sanji already
Giolla- Taken out by Brooke already

Diamante- Sabo
Lao G.- (one of the arena competitors, dunno which one)
Machvise- Rebecca
Senor Pink- Franky
Dellinger- Koala (alternate Bellamy)

Pica- Zoro (alternate Kinemon if the admiral gets a fight, as in that case I am putting Zoro against the admiral)
Gladius- Kinemon (need an alternate here, but not really sure who would work)
Buffalo- Fodder if he reappears
Baby 5- Fodder if she reappears

Vergo- Taken out by Law already
Monet- Taken out already and possibly dead

Well, with a 6 character limit for names, yours didn't fit =/
Curses! Foiled by character limits! Well played FF6 programmers. Well played indeed. I can't use my semi-standard abbreviation of Randiel either. I guess I do use Ran on occasion....Wait a sec, I just slightly increased the odds of me being Gogo. I did not think this through. :p
193  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Doctor Who on: December 24, 2013, 07:53:54 AM
Well, quite a few mentions of it are made in classic Who, though they make it out to be a very final number, and not by choice. The Doctor's mentor (who eventually turns bad for some reason), claims he is on his last regeneration. But yeah, there is the weirdness of the "skeletor" Master, who is described as being on his last regeneration, and for the reason, looks like a rotting corpse... never really explained why he is different. Then there is the Valyard.

Anyway, if Moffat is counting Smith as Regeneration 13, then he's already broken the rules without us even realizing it. Either Moffat is content to just blow the limit off (which I'm just fine with), or it'll need to be explained in the next 3 days as to why it happened, and what's going on. I'm banking on grateful timelords offering The Doctor a full new cycle.

Anyway, looking forward to the big Matt Smith sendoff. It's been fun!
I think the thing with "skeletor" Master was supposed to be that he hit regeneration 13, then kept aging and aging, and that is just what an extremely old time lord looks like. Either that or he was short changed and only got 11.5 regenerations instead of 12 and what he became is a half finished regeneration.

And I believe that the idea that is being thrown around isn't that Smith is Regeneration 13, but Doctor "13". So the Doctor after he has regenerated 12 times.
194  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: December 23, 2013, 07:06:40 AM
Barely watched any new anime this year, so I will be doing my list for manga instead of anime.

Manga of the Year: One Piece! Totally should not be a surprise. It has been amping things up all year and we are now on the eve of a freaking epic war.Even going into the new year it is still going on all cylinders. All hail the king of manga, Oda! He is truly Odaweomse!

Runner-Up: Magi. Absolutely great manga(anime is less good). It has had a great year as well with one of the most epic finishes for a battle ever. I think the series is great and will continue to be great. So glad this is getting an official release(not t just wait for an official release of the Adventures of Sinbad).

(Honorable mentions, World Trigger for being the best new manga of the year, which is setting itself up to quite possibly being a long running series, and The World God Only Knows for having a great arc, even if it is below the top two)

Biggest Surprise: Bleach! I still hate Bleach. It is a waste of space and it has become a convoluted mess that I don't care about at all. So why is it my biggest surprise? Because of Mask de Masuline. He is an amazing character. I love him, and I didn't think I could ever care about anything going on in Bleach ever again. I know that he will die in one or two weeks since he is going to be fodder to show how Renji has improved.....but I don't care. Go Mask de Masculine, hear the cheers of your fans and WWWIIIIIINNNNN!!!!

Biggest Disappointment: Huh this is going to be hard. One hand there was Jasco which wasn't that good, but I wasn't expecting much from at any point. Then there is Naruto which has just completely fallen and is just uninteresting, but I think that it might have been that way at the beginning of the year and I really don't want to double check on where Naruto was at the beginning of the year by rereading any chapters. So I guess I'll go with Seraph of the End because I had no idea of what to expect going in, and I ended up with a crappy battle series that has a tsundere main character that I hate. The sooner this thing gets cancelled the better.
195  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Final RPGFantasy VI on: December 23, 2013, 06:45:38 AM
Well I was vaguely hoping that I was going to somehow be Cyan. Now that I am not, I dread I am either not in the game....or I am Gogo. I'm not sure which would be worse. :p
