I'm guessing last major update will be Ganondorf and that head Gerudo whose name I've forgotten.
Twinrova?

Persona 4 Golden finally picked the pace back up for plot. Been enjoying it again. Just finished doing the concert in Junes, which was actually a pretty cool scene. I'm hoping the plot opens up a bit more about the killer now and stops tiptoeing around it. I feel like there was some fat that could have been trimmed. Almost up to 50 hours. Yeesh.
Concert in Junes? I really need to play Golden sometime. I have a feeling that some of the "fat" you speak of is probably stuff that was added to make Golden better. Can't really tell you whether they move on to focusing on the killer anytime soon since I have zero idea of where in the plot you are at this point.

After finishing Dark Soul, I jumped straight into another Action RPG; namely, Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning.

Considering this is the first (and only) game out of a studio, it is simply amazing.
I'm rocking Faeblades + Chakram playing some kind of rogue mage.

I usually don't care much about magic... but YOU CAN SNEAK ATTACK WITH MAGIC! MOUHAHAHAHA =D

The only thing I'm scared of is that perhaps the game will lose its shine, as looking at the map, this will be a very long game.
Then again, I did 'complete' Skyrim twice, so I may be 'hardy' enough.
Aamlur was fun, although the best part was the faction sidequests. Probably was a bit longer than my normal preference, but you should have a good time.

So made progress in Dawn of the New World....it still sucks. I don't expected anything different. Marta had temporarily stopped her whole Emil obsession and instead gone into melodrama mode.....I think I preferred her in Emil obsession mode. I think the melodrama is over now though so I'm sure I'm about to regret that preference. At this point I think I just have two chapters +one dungeon left. I pray that the remainder is quick. I so wish this game had holy bottles. x_x

I'm honestly not completely sure if I'll be getting this or not. I was never on the hype wagon for the first game, and I can't say that it impressed me. So yeah.

Also, Dice, I'll get the tar you get the feathers.

Yes! Goron chief for the win! (had to google to see who Darunia was, but win!) Also awesome to see the other two.

Really? I thought she looked incredibly bland and generic. Like maybe by Tales of standards, she's better than some of the other female leads, but that's seriously not saying a lot.
I didn't say she had a creative design creative, I just said I liked her design.

So a bit further into Dawn of the New World. Oh my god this game sucks. Emil still is a horrible character. Marta is a one note joke that lost its humor a while ago. I've apparently hatched two Centurion's who aren't going to make any appearance or impact. Raine feels completely out of character. The fact that the game is continually harping on Emil's hatred for Lloyd just makes me like him less. About the only good thing I can think to say about the game is that I like Marta's character design.

I bought Chronicles too thinking probably like you that I'd like to play this to see what the whole brouhaha was about.
Reading your 'as you play' review makes me not even want to try it myself now. Everything sounds really bad.
It reminds me of Gundam SEED Destiny in the sense that they made a sequel where the new lead is a prick who just keeps on badmouthing the old lead you know and like.
Yeah, if I were you I wouldn't bother. I am only playing it at this point to get trophies, not because I enjoy it. And honestly the thing about the game that is bugging me the most at the moment (besides the main character sucking) is that this story makes no sense in the world of Symphonia/Phantasia. The Centurions are just so superfluous when we already have summon spirits. I don't get why they thought this was the plot they should go with.

I'm a bit late, but oh man, I loathed Meryl.  I have no idea how the developers thought she would be considered cute.  I can't see her as anything but obnoxious, annoying, and stupid.
:(


And poor Merrril, her rivalmance is SO cute. lol *highfive* fellow Merril fan. Well, there are lot of Merril fans. I guess it depends on if your reaction to her is to protect her or smack her. I'd say both are valid. As for her personal quest:
Code:
you can avoid having to kill her clan.
That said, Isabela was the funniest character in the game. Isabela + Varric was hilarious.

Also, yay! more interest in the game. Definitely go watch the two part demo of the game which shows off how the combat is more tactical this time around.

Edit: Her names spelt MERRILL not Meryl. :P
*highfive*

I couldn't stand Isabella, either.

Really, I found most of the cast of DA2 to be bordering on annoying or relatively intolerable.  I think the single exception was Aveline, who I liked.

Fenris was saved only by having Gideon Emery as a voice actor.
Really? I loved the cast of DA2. I found Fenris annoying on my first playthrough because I chose to rival him, but he was much more tolerable when I friended him on my second playthough. I probably would hate Anders, but his rival path is really well written. Actually that is a good question, for all the characters did you rival them or friend them? That might have had some impact on your feelings for them. For me it was:
Bethany- Friend
Carver- Dead
Aveline- Friend
Varric- Friend
Merril- Rivalmance
Isabella- Rival
Fenris- Rival/Friend (preferred friend)
Anders- Rival
Sebastion- Friend/Rival (both were alright, going to import rival)

So I started Tales of Symphonia 2....I'm not sure what possessed me to do this. I hate Emil, he is a horrible main character. The whole Lloyd being a murderer plot is stupid, since there is absolutely no way it is true. The only joy I am getting from this game is that Marta is hilarious at times. But yeah.....this game sucks.

Beat the second ending of Muramasa 3rd DLC. It was great. Thinking I am going to force my way through Tales of Symphonia 2 next.
41  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Age 3 on: July 17, 2014, 06:53:23 AM
:( At all the Meryl hate. I found her rivalmance to be extremely enjoyable.

To be fair, there doesn't seem to be a single mage in the Dragon Age universe who doesn't resort to blood magic at the drop of a hat.  Guess the templars were actually right all along...
Insanity is literally in the air in Kirkwall thanks to the veil being thin there, resulting in just about every mage turning to blood magic eventually. Mages outside of Kirkwall tend not to have the same tendancy for blood magic.

"Don't cop out like fuckers and set it during the First Contact War (retconning things into oblivion). You made your shitty ending bed, sleep in it and tell us what happens next."

All the endings lead to the technological singularity, so no matter what you chose the ending was green. Problem solved.

I am the saddened that I was not deemed worthy to be in Klyde's team. :(

Oh well, been playing Muramasa Rebirth DLC 3. I love this ninja guy. He had a great storyline and his moveset is cool too.Finished the storyline last night, currently running all over Japan to pick up items before I begin slaughtering all of the bosses and evil wells.

Whee, rewatching Gundam 00 for like the fourth time. Still love it.

Ninja Edit: And I don't recognize my Disguya (probably from not having played a Disgaea since the original on the PS2).
You are a hero....or was it dark hero? Maybe Prinny ranger? That's the general gist of the class at least, I forget its proper name.
