So since my last post here, I have decided not to go trophy hunting in Tales of Zesty (which is really weird since I even went for platinum in Dawn of the New World which I actively hated). I'm uncertain as to whether I will eventually get back to it or not. In the meantime, I played through Steins;Gate on the Vita for trophies.

I'm now playing Trails in the Sky SC. My memory on the first game is kind of hit or miss at this point. Like I'm pretty sure I remember most of the details regarding the party members, but then the prologue started and I was just like "who the F is this girl in my party?" I have since checked the wiki to remind myself on some details. >.>

You all are mean. :(

I need like a Youtube link and a time stamp for this...  I just seem melted metal.

I'm so so sorry...  I thought I forgot someone...  My apologies.  YES thank you Ranadiel, you very much did help me. :) I'll blame the indecipherable avatar for somehow being responsible?! :P
You are forgiven. I was going to suggest hugs, but then I became sad that you can't make out Roxas in my avatar. :(

PS Thanks Aeolus and Tenchi for answering me question! :)

No love for me? *cries in the corner* :p

I get that aliens shouldn't all be bipedal 5 finger 2 hand humanoids, but I mean...the nopon are funny and cute, the ma-non look like walking reptiles, the the ganglion look interesting thus far...but as of this post, the prone look like the stuff of nightmares. I feel like the males are going to bearhug you and suck your innards out of your mouth through that gaping facehole of theirs and the women seduce you and alien succubus you the same way with similar results. If I weren't a 30 year old man with a slightly macho-ego, I'd be terrified of them.

Meanwhile that Suzzy dude has had the coolest tribal dialogue thus far...I'm so torn.
If you think Prone are the stuff of nightmares, then there is one quest that is really going to squick you out.

Namely the one where there is an interracial couple between a human and a prone...

Anyone know what a good Skell is for later?  I keep hearing about the Joker, Ares 60/90 and other ones good for colect-a-thons later on,.... I'm super confused about the whole thing.
Ok, so here is the deal with end game skells. First off some corrections, Joker is a tyrant and the "weak" Ares is the Ares 70 (not important, but it bugged me).

Now then, the reason you have heard of Joker a lot is that he is a high level tryant that is relatively easy to kill quickly. For quick farming of him, you'll want to use a level 50 heavy skell (as I recall the store heavy armor boosts thermal) with an intergalactic level 50 phoenix equipped. Maximum number of insect slayers XX helps, although you get the materials for those from killing Joker and his posse, so you don't need those at first. Go to the giant flower in the center of the northern part of Noctilum and Joker and a bunch of high level Blatta will just be chilling there. Unleash the Phoenix follow up with a G-Buster (or other weapons if you want to try and save fuel) and Joker should die fairly quickly. Exit your skell, use the menu command to return to skell (and respawn the enemies) and repeat. Extremely good source for exp, job exp, and blatta parts and it is also a decent source of level 60 weapons.

Now when you beat the game, you gain the ability to make a bunch of level 60 skells. These fall into two categories, the "custom" models of the skells you have been using so far (e.g., the formula zero) and the Ares models. The custom models can equip the level 60 superweapons that you can get blueprints for throughout the game. The Ares models come with default equipment that cannot be changed (except for augments). The Ares models are stronger out of the box. The custom models can be made stronger than the ares, but you have to do a lot more grinding. So the "conventional" wisdom is to build an Ares 90 (do not waste resources on the 70 as it mostly uses the same ones as the Ares 90) and then use it to grind the materials you need for everything else as the Ares 90 is ridiculously strong out of the box and therefore makes the grind a lot faster. In order to get the resources for the Ares 90, you'll probably have to ticket farm off of the world boss as your ground game immediately after beating the game is likely not strong enough to make grinding the time attacks efficient enough.

I think they only repeat when you've completed a huge amount of quests between chapters. That happened before I started Chapter 3.

Also I've just finished Chapter 4 and I'm way over 20 hours. I just cannot stop exploring. And there are so many party members. Affinity is kind of a pain to raise unless you're Elma/Lin...
Post game, you unlock a repeatable support mission which gives you party affinity. Takes just 30ish runs (at about 2 min per run) to go from 0 hearts to full 5.

Hold on. I thought Telethia Plume was still standing at 500+k RP. Or are you referring to the ingame Telethia?
Video is of a fight with the Endbringer aka level 90 superboss.

Amazing how fast they went from "This might be the last FE game ever..."

....to "Here's amiibos, two game scenarios, a collector's edition, 20 smash bros characters, DLC chapters, 3DS pouches, custom covers, figmas, and Fire Emblem musicals".

Well that is what happens when your "last entry" turns out to be the best selling entry of the series ever by a significant amount.

As for RPGs, I'm deliberating on whether or not to stick to the massive backlog I have (starting with finishing Etrian Odyssey Untold) or just jump into Xenoblade X...  Recommendations?
Personally I would just jump into Xenoblade Chronicles X.

To help, I'll try and give a better description of where I recall getting the key (which may or may not be right).

-From the entrance take a right
-When you get to the point where on of the keys that you have already found was down a path to your right, turn left
-Go to the far end of the cavern you are now facing and it should be somewhere there if I recall correctly

Edit: Looking around to see if I can find any directions for it online and I found that the enemy that drops it is a milsaadi guard. I might be wrong about it being at the far end of the right chamber, but it is certainly to the right of the entrance.

And speaking of 'Definian Downfall', where the hell is that first Shield Key? I found the other two quickly enough, but I can't seem to spot the first one and I don't like the thought of having to fight my way through a crowd of enemies 10+ levels above my weight class (or a level 64 tyrant without a Skell), or having to comb all of Cauldaros for it (it was bad enough just to find one more Discovery on one of my Revenue Nodes to push my Revenue over 130k for that one quest).
I don't remember specific keys. I know one key is found by beating enemies (a specific enemy?). I think I found that one on a an enemy near the far end of the right portion of the cave. One was lying on the ground in a room to the right when you first enter the cave. And I don't recall for sure on the last key I got. I think it is too the left of the entrance? Although my memory on that one is a little confused as I recall getting it after a battle, but I think I just happened to be in range of picking it up.

There's this pink Nopon that's supposed to be a really good fighter (like, she beats up big ass monsters on her own you're doing stuff elsewhere). I wish we could have gotten her instead of Tatsu. She has a cool voice.
Eh she exaggerates how strong she is. You "fight" her in one quest that requires you to finish off something like five other quests (including Defian Downfall which requires five other quests to be completed). Won't spoil what her "fighting style" is. Although I guess she would still be more useful than Tatsu.

I'm trying to buff up my Skell now.  I'm sorta annoyed how I can't take on large enemies without fear of death, so I think it's time to really start hitting up the Augments.  Any recommended ones???
General augment recommendation for skells is something like the anti-reflect mod XX for whatever your most used element is plus a ton of enemy type damage boosters for whatever enemy type you are hunting. Although I would probably recommend holding off on grinding augments till you are post game.

I am getting the special edition.

I think I figured out what was bugging me in Tales of Zesty. The game has a weird mix of optimism and pessimism. Like believing in the potential in humanity to fix its problems...and then proceeding to murder people because there is no hope for them to improve in the future. Game overall was too pessimistic for my tastes, but I couldn't identify that as what was throwing me off because of the moments of optimism clouding my judgment of how pessimistic it was till I took a step back and viewed it as a whole.

What was I talking about again? Ah yes, I like pancakes. Syrup is good too. Maple might be best. MMMmmmm pancakes. Now you got me hungry.

We can't have a non-drama comment in this thread. Down with pancakes! Waffles for the win!

Beat Tales of Zesty last night. The game was fine, but there was something off about it. Even after thinking about it for half a day, I still can't figure out what it was about the game that I disliked. I liked the characters. I liked the set up of the main character essentially forming pacts with elemental spirits that serve as party members. I was meh on the battle system, but that wasn't the problem. The small town sizes combined with the small number of towns bugged me, but that is fairly standard for a Tales of game.

Really wish I could put my finger on what it was that I disliked. Until I can figure out what it was that I disliked, I think it is going to be stuck in the bottom half of my rankings of the Tales of games.

know what i dont get about this game? if your gonna outsource the games development why not mistwalker instead of cyberconnect? then you would at least be getting one person responsible for the original game.
Wait Cyber Connect 2 is working on this game? *checks Wikipedia* Huh they are...now I am torn as I love CC2, but I have 0 interest in a FF7 remake. I am not sure whether I should be feeling hyped for this or not.
