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

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.

Trailer FINALLY. IT'S OUT ON MY BIRTHDAY!!!! :D

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.

Woooooowwwwww......

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).
36  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.

So the main page has a translation of an article that includes the names and descriptions of the nine characters:

Quote
•Carlos: a hot-blooded man with a strong sense of justice, who dotes on his younger sister as she has a terminal disease.

•Akane: She appears to be a neat and clean woman, but she specializes in trickery.

•Junpei: After 999, he joined a detective agency to pursue Akane. Currently a runaway.

•Q: A boy who has lost his memory and wears a mask resembling a pig's head.

•Eric: Works at a ice cream shop and is dating Mira.

•Mira: A "sexily shaped" woman who is dating Eric.

•Diana: A nurse who doesn't like fighting

•Phi: A blunt woman participating in the "Dcom" experiment in order to save the world.

•Sigma: Despite only being 22, Phi sometimes calls him an old man. He's walked into a bizarre life.

I honestly have some issues with this group of people. 5/9 of them are returning characters (unless K somehow ends up not possessing one of them like was explicitly stated in ending for the last game). That means that there are only 4 people that we could hypothetically suspect, and one of them is freaking Diane who we know worked till her death after this to undo these events. So that leaves us with 3 "suspects"? Also the main page mentions that apparently 6 passwords are needed to escape and someone needs to die to get each one. I guess the fact that we have....5 espers will be used to circumvent the deaths, but I'm curious as to how we ended up in a lose condition on the original timeline if that is the set up, especially since at least 4 of the 5 espers survive these events.

Decided to get Yellow version, but part of me wishes I had gotten Red for the nostalgia trip instead. Gotta love those awful gen 1 battle sprites.
Fun fact, the sprites in the American Red and Blue were actually the sprites from the Japanese Blue version of the game (which is different than American Blue). In Japan there were ever crappier sprites for Red and Green (which American Blue is based on).

So Revelation came out yesterday. I hope everyone enjoying it. I'm now getting ready to start the most tedious aspect of support grinding, parent child supports! Well already started them by doing all of the Female Corring exclusive supports. But next? Next is doing it for all the fathers including Male Corrin, this is going to take a while (Kaze and Silas, I hate both of you right now x_x).

Not sure who my final pairings are going to be yet. The ones that I am currently leaning towards are:
Keaton x Hana
Laslow x Peri
Hayto x Orochi (or Nyx)
Subuki x Selena
Silas x Hinoka
Corrin x Velouria

If I stick with those, that just leaves...14 to go. x_x

http://www.siliconera.com/2016/03/11/fire-emblem-fates-sells-400000-us-pokmon-breaks-eshop-records/

So Fates did pretty well for itself apparently.

Also Pokemon RYB but who cares, they have been the single most evergreen titles in existence.
Good to see it is doing well. Although I fear the strong sales may mean that we are going to start to see multiple editions as a mainstay of the Fire Emblem series.

Anyone remember watching Gundam Wing back in the day before drone warfare was a thing?
Yeah and then I watched it again in the past year and was like, "Wow the mobile dolls plot point seems incredibly more relevant now then it did when first released." And then I also rejoiced because it was still good even after all these years.

I hate to plagiarize but..."So a Priest and a Nun walk into a game...".
Neat. I'll certainly play it if it gets an official release, but I'll be honest, I am more interested in getting Zero and Ao at this point.
42  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Zero Escape 3 official on: March 09, 2016, 06:55:43 AM


The 3D looks better than ZE2?? (not that it would be hard to be)
Ugh was hoping for drawings rather than CG, but I'll take improved CG...I guess? Not like I have a choice.

Now for the characters...

Code:
Number 9 looks like future Sigma...in past Sigma's body. Number 8 is Diana because as I recall Luna was based on Diana and 8 is the only one with the right hair color (she also has the right eye color). I'm guess 5 is the body K is possessing due to the helmet. And 10 is probably the new Zero, who my money is on being Brother. And is number 7 an earlier version of Phi? Looks like it at least.

The biggest question in my mind as I look at these characters though is...how the heck did any of these people get selected for a NASA mission. Also side note, I find number 4 to be very punchable. >.>

Yeah (sorry for not responding sooner, only really check the forums once a day).
44  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Test on: March 07, 2016, 06:10:27 AM
So...anyone else unable to see any threads in the Game Journals section?
45  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: March 05, 2016, 05:47:30 AM
Also currently replaying .Hack//G.U. and being reminded why most fans tend to ship Haseo x Alkaid.
Because that is an awesome ship.


I was going to buy the games (yea they are expensive but I could just resell them) but I keep thinking that because trapped in an MMO is a plotline for like every other anime out today that .hack//GU HD trilogy will be re-released. Alas I guess Bandai/Namco doesn't like money.
Eh, there really isn't that much getting trapped in an MMO in G.U. Happens to one character, but that is more of SIGN or original games thing. Although don't get me wrong, I would love a G.U. HD release. I would platinum that thing so hard.
