Watching someone play the demo on Vine. This looks stupid as hell.
Exactly, isn't it glorious?

Buh? Of course you can mime yourself. Freelancer/performer is great. Use the skill that gives everyone a BP, then mime it 3 times.

Its great when you face boss mobs where Hasten World just hastens your death.

Allow me to rephrase that, you're not going to get much mileage out of a Freelancer/Performer combo when your Freelancer has to pay 3 Brave to use the "everyone else gets +1 BP" song and then -1 BP for every Mimic thereafter (at Brave 0, you'll get at most +2 Brave before the Performer hits -4 BP).
Really? Because that is actually one of the components for the limitless silent world (or w/e the invincibility move is called) cheese that I used to get through the last chapter side quests. Every other turn your performer/freelancer uses +1BP move/mimic/mimic/mimic. On other turns the performer buffs. As for the only getting +2 , that's actually wrong due to how the game handles BP. You'll go to -3 from using the move, then you'll go to -2 from the move, then -3 from braving, and -2 from mimicking, etc. You'll never actually hit -4 and you can input commands that will send you below -4 BP. So you'll end up at -2 BP on the performer (assuming starting at 0) with the other characters having gained 4. If you throw in hasten world, then you can actually spam out 4 BP every turn (well I guess it would be a constantly regenerating supply of 6 BP total for the other three characters)

I haven't like Green's appearance since I saw it, and I just figured out why. The stupid cat ears. She'd look fine if she just didn't have those.

It isn't. Class::EXSPHERE_NOSURGE; has nothing to do with Ar Ciel, and its melody has nothing in common with any of Ar tonelico's songs. The reason for it sounding so chaotic and bipolar at times is due to a certain event that is related to the main antagonist (check the lyrics: it starts with a "I'll kill everything!" and then changes to "I'll protect everything!"), which also segues with the meta commentary that Kevadu told about before.

Code:
Besides, at the point in which the Ra Ciela party comes to Ar Ciel, not even the Seven Bloodstains Incident has taken place, so the Grathnode Inferia won't happen for at least other ten years.

However, one of the songs does indeed have to do with Ar tonelico, though its melody was never heard before: the music box part at the end of Class::DISTLLISTA; is an arranged version of the melody played by the Orgel of Origins, which is the single most important piece of music in all of Ar Ciel. The original version of that melody can be heard in track 25 of the soundtrack's first disc (titled  "Burial Chamber").
Weird, I still think that the tune that plays at approximately 4:50 of Class::EXSPHERE_NOSURGE; sounds like a snippet of the tune from one of the Singing Hill songs (my gut is saying the end of Tylia) to me. If it doesn't play during the Ar Tonelico cameo portion though then I guess there would be no real significance to that even if I had been right.

Don't have the sound track though, so I'll just have to wait for the game to come out in the USA to listen to the full version of Burial Chamber.

Started playing Virtue's Last Reward yesterday. I feel so bad for Clover getting stuck in three iterations of the Nonary game. Also feel bad for K since I am assuming he has been involved in all three also (I am assuming he is Ace, Snake, or Seven....probably Seven since he has horrible luck).

Also slowly working on my evil playthrough of Infamous. Not in a real rush on that though since I want all of Papertrail to be out before I finish that run and there are four weeks left on that.

Yeah that probably isn't enough to save the game for me. I hit level 70 last night. While I was playing the game, I had two realizations. 1. Grinding for legendaries would be ridiculous because odds are fairly high I would get crap I don't want. 2. I am sick and tired of elite abilities that create areas on the floor.....which is basically half of their abilities. I am going to be the final boss and then never play this stupid thing again. Unfortunately that is going to take forever. God damn clouds. >.>

So quick spoilery question for people who have gotten through the Ar Tonelico cameo portion of the game...

Code:
Do you witness the Grathnode Inferia at the end of that portion of the game? I ask because listening to the Concert CDs there is one song which sounds to me like hell is being unleashed with occasional bits of softer music. At least one of those softer pieces of music, I am fairly certain one of the softer pieces is straight from the Ar Tonelico.....and that portion of music sounds like it gets stabbed. So the music sounds to me like hell being unleashed as the world of Ar Tonelico is killed aka Grathnode Inferia. So I'm curious if my interpretation of that song is right or not.

So the demo is out now, and I just discovered that there is no thread for this game! I'm still early (I think?) in the demo as I am about to enter the first dungeon. I am loving this game so far. Mostly because I am finding it hilarious. Gameplay seems decent, but that the fact that this game is getting a U.S. release still makes me chuckle. Plus it has glorious lines such as "Thank you for giving me permission to make children with your sister." If the rest of the game is like this then, GOTY for me already.
189  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Diablo 3? on: March 28, 2014, 06:14:04 AM
Ok. that's weird, because the only Feat of Strength I have is "participated in Beta" when I beat the game prior to this whole switch...ah well...
Check again. They don't add to your number of Feats of Strength on the summary page (no idea why) and they are in separate sub sections of Feats of Strength from the other Feats.
Had to lower the difficulty down to expert.  Sorry, this is shit.  Four fucking hours on Act V and I'm barely finding anything to keep me afloat.  Maybe you're supposed to play it the first time on normal or hard and then work up to the higher modes, but the fact that we've all played this game up and down is fucking the difficulty royally.  There's no difficulty curve, just a straight cliff of, "Fuck you, find better equipment."  

Edit-
Don't get me wrong, I'm sure everything is fine when you take a fresh character through loot 2.0 and get equipment as it's supposed to come now.  I'm sure that fixes the difficulty curve.  But I'm having the exact same problem I had when 2.0 came out, where the difficulty is crazy hard but the drops even things out.  Problem is the higher level drops just aren't happening, and now I've lowered it to the point that they probably won't come.  I get that this is a no-win scenario considering how many hours people have put into the game, but right now things are just not fun and it feels like old school inferno where a fucking number wall is keeping me from having fun.  I love the new boss and enemy designs and how they force me to stay mobile, but sections like The Ram just feel like artificial equipment barriers.  
I feel your pain. I was told by a friend that there is an equipment power jump at 66, but I'm 68 now and I have barely managed to find anything new since 65. Heck I think I'm still weaker than my friend's level 60 character from pre-RoS (or at least squishier).

Whee got the Concert Sides earlier this week and finished going through them last night. I think I liked all the music on them. Adding quite a few of them to my regular playlists.
191  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Diablo 3? on: March 27, 2014, 07:01:06 AM
Really not enjoying Act V atm. Mostly because I am not getting drops that are really improvements over my current gear, so I have to drop the difficulty level as I get further into the game meaning I get less drops, and I still don't get any gear improvements and it is just continuing. I'm level 65, just hit the first boss.....and now I am going to have to drop difficulty again. >.>

Did they remove achievements, and then add them in again, or am I just imagining things?
I could have swore when I beat the game the first time around at launch, I got all the boss achievements. Now that I'm playing through on my Crusader, I'm getting them again?? What gives?

That being said, Crusader is so much fun. This is what I wanted from the start. I'll probably play up to the end of act 4 with him, and experience act 5 on my Demon Hunter.
All achievements that referred to difficulty were moved to Feats of Strength (because they are now impossible to get) and replaced with new achievements that refer to the new difficulties.

Code:
Don't get too excited. It's just a new bad ending that occurs when you choose Door 3 as your second door. It's just another Death by Clover™, just less...unsettling. They even reuse the same "outstretched hand" CG.

Code:
Out of curiosity (since I'll never get the game on iOS) what does she use to kill you in the new ending?

Been playing Infamous Second Son. Game is enjoyable. Really like that I get a full set of exploration powers in one of the first few story missions. Like that powers don't require stupid stunts to unlock now. Got two districts free now. Game says I am 23% through the game. I suspect that I'm not that far along in terms of time investment though

Watched Frozen last night. I enjoyed it. Liked how they touched upon the whole "true love" trope. They managed to time most of the comic relief's scenes perfectly (cutting off from him right before he got annoying). Liked the characters, liked the majority of the music, and I thought it was a very enjoyable film overall.

In the middle of chapter 4 in Bravely Default, currently grinding to prepare for chapter 5.
.....Why are you grinding in chapter 4 to prepare for chapter 5? The moment you enter chapter 5 is the moment the most efficient grinding spot opens up. I guess you might mean to prepare to get to chapter 5, but still minimize your grinding in chapter 4 because you get a better spot in chapter 5.
