Watched the finale of Iron Blooded Orphans yesterday. I am amazed, but not for any good reason...

That was an incredible tonal disconnect. They didn't just pull the fake out card for one of the three characters who appeared to die in the previous episode, oh no all three of them are alive. The only thing this did was turn Ein into a complete an total joke (although I suppose that is more in character with his depiction throughout the rest of the series). The episode was fine on its own, but it just did not fit with the semi-bleak tone of the rest of the series. Also it really did not set up anything for the second season beyond McGills having some grand master plan that we still don't know anything about. I have zero idea of what the second season is about and that kind of makes it hard to have any hype for it. I'll probably watch it if I remember it exists when it comes out, but I'm kind of meh on the idea right now.

She also seems to be wielding an invisible Lance.
She isn't, she is just equipped with no weapon

So I discovered a hilarious glitch in Fire Emblem Fates yesterday. There is a boss in Birthright named Daniela who can be captured by Orochi. Her starting class is Tactician. The only class she can change into is maid unless you use a DLC seal on her. Now here is the fun part, apparently her horse from her Tactician class has something set up weird because when you make her a Dark Flacon, well this happens:

Apparently her horse overrides the default winged horse for the class and it was missed during testing since she normally can't change to another class. End result flying horse.

But seriously, I just feel we're reaching that point where completing the pokedex has become an impossible task and I'm not sure I can remember all the pokemon anymore.
Eh it is still possible to complete the pokedex...minus event pokemon. Some of the event pokemon are unlikely to be found through legit means. Like Genesect, he was last given away in 2013...in Japan. Last (ajnd only) time he was given out in the USA was in 2012 (although it looks like he is scheduled for an event in November). But non-event exclusives can be generally acquired without too much issue thanks to breeding and the global trade network.

Watched episode 24 of Iron Blooded Orphans. I was expecting a blood bath, but there was one character that (probably) died that I was not expecting. I'm sure episode 25 will have some deaths as well, but I have to wait another week till it is up on CrunchyRoll.

Link's Awakening DLC Character is Marin. No idea if her weapon was revealed or not. Find it a slightly odd choice, but then who else from LA are you going to use? (You know, besides the list of suggestions Aeolus posted on the previous page... oops.)

Actually, now that I think about Aelous' list a bit more, if Nintendo wanted to do things right then the DLC *weapon* should be Bow Wow.
But Bow Wow is already a weapon in the game...

Edit: Also really glad that they are going with red head Marin. Her Smash trophies have her a blonde and she really doesn't look as good. *prepares to be disappointed when she ends up not looking like the artwork*

Somebody blew their April Fools load a week early....

Then again, they did announce that Jack is back, so who knows, they may go for the hat trick and announce a return of Big O and/or Megas XLR.
God damn I want some more Megas XLR. Or hell, at this point I'd just settle for a DVD release. Actually... *checks Amazon* Nope still no DVD release. >.>

If the 'leaked' photos of thr NX controller are real it looks like an ergonomic nightmare.

Let us all pray that they're not.

For reference: http://gematsu.com/2016/03/rumor-nintendo-nx-controller-images-leaked

Mother of god....

Chances are there's going to be an ergonomic shell for the final version, but it seems like Nintendo's finally resorting to swiping tech from the competition. Hopefully, the Wii U gamepad is compatible as is the Pro Controller (and maybe the Wiimotes?).

Admittedly, seeing a controller try to unify the Sticks/Face Buttons/D-Pad onto two nubs is interesting to say the least. Here's hoping it works better in practice than it does on paper, because it sure as hell doesn't look like it.
Oh gods that thing gives me nightmares. I can't tell the scale for sure, but I'm pretty sure my massive hands will have to be holding it like I am praying due to how small it is. Ugh...

I see the fire emblem games really bring out the shipper in people. lol
Thing is in Awakening and Fates, you get children units when you hook up first gen units, so you have to ship characters in game if you want to get all the units. And then you have to be choosey about the second parent of each children units in order to min max them into a race of super beings! Or just pair up units you like...I guess either one works.

I'm still unsure as to what to do with this series, one because I have other games I'm playing right now, two because I already played Dynasty Warriors, and three because I'm not sure whether I'd want the 3DS version or Wii U version, all things considered.

So mostly I just settle for watching this incredible GMV over and over.


I think because I legitimately enjoyed Dynasty Warriors I may just get to at some point... still wouldn't solve the system issue, my understanding is that you get the most benefit if you get both the 3DS and Wii U version (and then link them or something)

Hyrule Warriors is a very well made Dynasty Warriors game (I'd probably easily put it in the top 3 and I am having a hard time thinking of better ones), so if you enjoy Dynasty Warriors you should enjoy it.

As for version, 3DS is a better value per character as it includes all the characters from the WiiU version including DLC characters plus some new ones. You can get all the new ones in the WiiU version if you buy the 3DS version as it includes a DLC code for the new ones, but I don't think there will be a stand alone version of that DLC (although you will probably be able to ebay the code). Additionally, I do not know if the 3DS version includes everything from the WiiU version.

I think the best way to look at it is probably 3DS=more content per dollar, WiiU=larger screen (and possibly better playing experience as a result).

So finally decided on my Revelation pairings. I doubt anyone cares (especially since they are vey sub-optimal), but here they are anyways.

Corrin x Velouria- Subject to change if I like another second gen support better
Azama x Azura- Azura is the Azama sacrifice because she fits best with Mitama's backstory
Jakob x Setsuna- I really don't remember why I chose this one...w/e
Silas x Hinoka- I like Silas x Nyx better, but I cannot live with that stat combo x_x
Kaze x Sakura- I think they are sweet together

Ryoma x Camilla- Like them together
Takumi x Mozu- Mozu makes the most sense to me as Kiragi's mom
Saizo x Orochi- I like their S rank
Kaden x Peri- Poor Kaden, Selkie has Peri's smile so they are stuck together
Hinata x Rinkah- Leftovers
Subaki x Selena- Recursion!
Hayato x Nyx- Gives Rhajat Dark Mage and decent stats

Xander x Effie- Leftovers and decent stats
Leo x Felicia- Decent stats and I can just see Felicia mothering Forrest
Benny x Oboro- Like them together
Keaton x Hana- Like them together
Arthur x Kagero- Like them together
Odin x Elise- Stats and I can believe Elise referring to herself as a "chosen one"
Laslow x Charlotte- Their S rank made me laugh too much
Niles x Beruka- I like their S rank
252  Media / General Games / Re: Zelda Musou on: March 18, 2016, 06:58:11 AM
Hmm so let's see here, we have:

Link's Awakening- 1 New Character, and 1 New Weapon (Linkle)

Phantom Hourglass- 1 New Character, and 1 New Weapon (Toon Link)

Link Between Worlds- 2 New Characters

So 4 new characters (plus Medli) and 2 new weapons. Any ideas on these? I can't say I'm familiar with any of these entries.

We *have* seen matter transcend timelines: Akane herself in 999. Saved-Akane is present to guide Junpei to save Akane in the past.
That's not really the same thing at all. Akane is always present on the timeline, she doesn't physically hop across timelines to show up in the one where she is saved. She is always in that timeline and never physically changes to a different one.



Bloody good time

EDIT: Some giant promo art
Lmao, took me till halfway through the video before I realized that the video was in English and not Japanese. XP

I would have preferred artwork somewhat, but if they are using models then at least they are moving this time. Makes them a little bit less stupid looking.

To this day there is no gaming locale more fascinating to me than Narshe.  That image perfectly captures why.  Imagine an actual town constructed that way.  Imagine living there.  What an experience that would be.
I imagine that slipping and falling off to lower levels is the second most common cause of death/injury in Narshe (second only to mining accidents).
255  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Zero Escape 3 official on: March 16, 2016, 07:10:11 AM
Are they really the ones you know them to be? Is Akane really Akane? Is Junpei really Junpei?

*which* Sigma will we be experiencing? Both? Or just one? Somehow, the work of VLR needs to find its way INTO ZTD, but that itself will be just one meta-puzzle among many, I'm sure.

Furthermore, who's to say that it isn't 9/9 that are Espers? That could get ugly. :)

I also think Carlos might be Santa. "Carlos Santana." I ALSO ALSO think Santa is the overall villain of the entire story, the one behind the organization Dio was in. Call me crazy. I have lots of wacky theories.

IN ANY CASE I can't wait for this game. Holy crap.
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that yes they are the ones we know because otherwise that would be a stupid ass pull. Sigma will be old Sigma and only old Sigma because we see young Sigma's return to the past and it is after the events of this game and after old Sigma messed everything up because he had a crush on Diane (or something like that).

I dunno about there being 9 espers. Nothing we have seen so far indicates that Diane was an esper.

Then there's the fact of that name: "Brother." Whose brother? I say: June (Akane).

So I think the "Brother" Santa is not the one we interacted with at all in the 999 setup. If anything, that Santa remained unknown (non-existent? non-accessible?) until the events of 999 took place. The shadowy kid-run organization that brought "Zero" into existence may have accidentally had some nasty side effects in the many-worlds-verse. And so, "Black Santa" it is.

(I also still think that Quark is a love child of Junpei and June from an alternate timeline, but everyone tells me I'm stupid for thinking that. Someone explain to me Tenmyouji's loyalty to the kid, then?)
Brother is Left's brorther. That is what his name is referencing. It is explicitly stated. Brother is upset over Left's death and clones a bunch of him. Dio is one of those clones. In case you didn't notice, Dio looks nothing like Akane. :p

As for Quark, Junpei raised him from birth and Quark is what basically gave him a reason to live. That is why he is so loyal to Quark, because Quark is his adopted son.

Your theories here all require there to be a way to move matter between timelines which is an ability that has never been demonstrated in the universe before.
