Yes. Here is a qoute from Polygon "As if the game's drab gameplay wasn't enough to turn me away, Conception 2's underage eroticism is alienating and just plain icky. Animated scenes feel like an ode to upskirts, and the game has enough boob jiggling to give me whiplash. It's a trashy, thoroughly underwhelming experience I cannot wait to forget." The fan service definatly lowered to score there. I mean 4/10, seriously?
To be fair, late in the game the classmating scenes do cross over all kinds of lines, so I can totally see that making people uncomfortable. Me? I just laughed my ass off because I found it hilarious that they went there.

CORO CORO SCANS LEAKED

HOLY SHIT THESE GAMES WILL FEATURE GROUDON AND KYOGRE
Let's not jump the gun and reach any conclusions yet, Nintendo might just be trying to lead us astray. Groudon and Kygore might not actually be in the game. It is still too early to tell for sure.

Side note, anyone else think Kygore looks drunk or something on Alpha Sapphire? Just odd placement of the iris for him.

Finished Steins;Gate 100% last night. Game was good, had a lot of minor details that made some of the plot points work better than in the anime. However there is still one minor point from the true end that still bugs me.

Code:
The freaking metal Upa. The whole point of the final trip to the past is to create a stable time loop that feeds back to Okabe getting to that point in the timeline. However the metal Upa screws up the time loop since he saw a metal Upa there and that is how he knew what to. The way to fix the time loop should have been get a plastic Upa and replace the dropped the metal Upa with the plastic one before Kurisu picked it up. That would have left Okabe's observed initial timeline in tact resulting in a stable time loop.

If it wasn't for this one detail, I would call it a perfectly internally consistent time travel story, and quite possibly the first of those that I have ever seen.

Not sure what I'll be playing first. Considering Bound by Flame, Witch and the Hundred Knight, trying Witcher 2 again, or maybe something else from my backlist.

First Monokuma DLC came out yesterday. Killed him in two attacks. Take that you evil bear!

Beat Steins;Gate last night, now onto 100%! Overall thoughts, really glad I played it because almost every minor issue I had with the anime is addressed in some way or another in the game. So basically the anime's issues were almost all due to time constraints. Have to say though that I am uncertain about my feelings regarding one thing that was cut from the anime...

Code:
Namely the Nae plot in one of the later chapters. That is just wtf. I like it, but it just seems to come out of nowhere. Alpha Worldline 4 is just an f'ed up place.

Despite my avatar, and my love for the title, I still haven't beaten Baten Kaitos Origins even though I think the game is fucking awesome.  I get so distracted by a particular sidequest (it's a crazy collect-a-thon with an awesome reward), but then school happens, or other work, then I forget my sidequest progress (I'm thinking it might not be worth it, I should just beat the damn thing).
You know I think this might be the only game that I can recall starting and not finishing eventually over several years. Although my reason for not finishing it is that I suck at the game (shared deck balancing throws me off) so I started skipping fights, and thus I am now too weak to beat the final boss (or at least I think I left on the Final Boss).

The trick is a smaller deck that never exceeds (iirc) 40 cards so the good stuff cycles more often (it's almost funny when the games extends your card capacity because it's not recommended or wise to pack more), minimize or avoid character-specific armour (only use that "small gear" that the whole party can use), and insert those chain cards so Milly can stick up specially attack levels.  If you can't combo, even high levelled characters are going to do shitty damage, and the game makes stacking combos a necessity. 

It is a really hard game though.  I love that about it, but it's *tough*.  Some bosses honestly take a bit of luck or deck tweaking, one of them is just an asshole recovering his high-HP subordinates

...I wrote like you're gonna play it again, I'm sorry I got excited.
I might because it does bug me, I just have to remember this tip whenever I get around to it. x_x

Made some progress in Steins;Gate. Enjoying the game a bit as it does address most of my minor issues with anime.

Code:
for example in the anime it seemed to be implied that Kurisu called for the ambulances in the beginning despite that not working in that timeline but in the game there are other people who see her in order to call the ambulances.


The fact that they can send a text message to a pager in 1993 or w/e (i.e., before cell phone towers) still bugs me, but they do at least acknowledge the issue (even if they do just hand wave it away).

That game is so great though, I'd stick with it if I were you. Chapter 1 is pretty exhausting, but once you get to the end of it, the game really picks up. I can't say the sidequests were ever fun, but the story in the game is really great.
The problem is that I don't care about anything going on. At this point if I ran through the game it would be speedrunning because I just don't care to get invested.

I really didn't care for The Witcher 2 either. I heard great things but found it tedious and cumbersome in the gameplay department. I did play the 360 version though. Maybe the PC version is more friendly..?
Imo, gameplay on the PC isn't cumbersome....just standard. Which isn't bad, but there isn't anything remarkable about it.

Yesterday was movie day for me! Saw Amazing Spider Man 2 and Captain America 2.

Really enjoyed Amazing Spider Man 2. I know that a lot of people are complaining about the pacing, but it didn't bother me. I love the characters in the movie, the fights were good, and I really don't have any complaints about it. It probably could have been better had Harry been introduced in 1, and I'm sure it could have been tweaked to improve it some, but I still enjoyed it on the whole. I think I preferred Amazing Spider Man 1 to this one, but I would still rank this as the second best Spider Man I have seen.

Captain America 2 was good. However some of the action scenes were just soooooo freaking choppy. I nearly got a headache during the first fist fight between Captain America and the Winter Soldier because I could see skips between frames and ugh.

I think I'm just going to drop Witcher 2 because I just don't care at this point. I hit chapter 1, started some earl quests and I realized I just don't give an f about the game.

I think I might just start Steins;Gate since I got it recently.
191  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: May 03, 2014, 06:49:26 AM
Started Witcher 2, I'm still in the prologue. I'm not really sure what I think about the game yet. Gameplay feels meh to me. Too early to really have any feelings on the storyline.

Rewatched through all of Stein;s Gate over the weekend(okay skipped the last episode but w/e). Then started rewatching FMA: Brotherhood. Both great series, although for FMA my brain kept thinking, "wait where is (blank) from the manga." Damn year and a quarter long anime cutting minor stuff. >.>

Yeah, unfortunately Brotherhood pretty much abridged the early arcs in favor of completing the anime at roughly the same time as the manga and because a large amount of that material was already covered in the original anime before that decided to go flying off the rails. Of course, that still left gaps like the first showdown in Central skipping over the fight between Envy and Lanfan (which was unfortunate for Ranfan since that was basically half of her asskicking screentime right there; which of course led to the confusion from the anime only crowd as to why she was suddenly wiping the floor with Gluttony when she returned right before the final battle). It's pretty much why the manga is the best version of the series.
Indeed the manga is the best version, Brotherhood is the second best.

Alright I finally beat the game and got all endings.  I am definitely disappointed with this game.  The dungeons and combat are so freakin awful urghhhhhh.  So glad I'm finally done.  If it wasn't for a couple (sadly not most) of the girls being fun to talk to I would have never finished this game.  Narika and Chloe's events are so awful I think I've suffered brain damage.  Ellie best girl though :)
I beat the game with the normal ending last night. Going for the rest of the endings after I finish all the NG+ quests. Sadly both of the ones I have right now are item gathering quests. The item gathering quests are by far the worst thing about the game. And I will second Ellie being the best. Also will second Narika being awful....Chloe's didn't bother me that much.

Started a new expert level record of Infamous Second Son doing the evil path this time. It really sucks that I'm such a good guy because my first playthrough would have been more enjoyable this way. It's so refreshing to just blow everything up in your path and not give a shit what happens instead of worrying you are hitting civilians or bystanders when you are good and trying to fight the enemies in the city. I just shoot in every direction with no care in the world. Expert mode hasn't really been any different so far from what I can tell other than maybe you die a little bit sooner than normal.
Really? I found Evil less enjoyable because I preferred the Good power ups more. Also found the good storyline to be more rewarding (although the evil ending was.....interesting). I did my expert mode playthrough first with my good set up. Found I died a lot against the beefier enemies (damn gatling guns and football players).
