Sakura Taisen (that makes it to the U.S.) and/or Valkyria Chronicles developed by Atlus, please!

Inb4 Yggdrasil can RSS.

Also, ouch. Not surprising, but ouch all the same.
Honestly, that is probably a little better than I would have expected. It managed to keep 50% of the fans from FFXIII-2. That is a lot better than FXIII-2 managed. The third in a trilogy is almost always going to be the worst performing.

Worth noting that this game does not have release-date delivery from Amazon (I'm so used to that now that it surprises me when it's not an option...).  Furthermore it's being released on the week of Thanksgiving, meaning that even if it gets shipped Tuesday it's probably not going to be delivered until the following Monday...
How dare you doubt Amazon! They will never fail! *hugs his copy of Ys IV that was delivered from Amazon today*

.....Now if only I had a Vita.

But is yours a Collectors' Edition? *hugs his Collectors' Edition of Ys IV*

.....Now if only I had a Vita.

Yes, yes it is. For I always go for the collector's edition.....minus one Ys game, where I somehow missed the fact that there was a collector's edition.

Mine should be arriving from Amazon tomorrow.

I'm so excited.  I'm terribly jealous of you guys who have it already.
Well you might end up playing it before the rest of us since everyone who seems to have it already is in the category of "I don't own a Vita yet".

I would stay away from a list of "best stories in an RPG" because that is SO subjective.  Nobody could agree on anything.  It would only invite controversy.  The thread for that article would break 100 pages in 90 days. 

...You should start on the article tomorrow. 
Look all that has to be done is put Xenogears at number 1 and no one will care about the rest. Everyone can agree to that so there would be peace and harmony. *hides*

Because it would make it a pain in the ass to sit...literally.
If they made it flexible enough though they could just wrap it around their waists though like they already do. Or better yet, just put your tail under the armor. Weak point removed (for elites at least).

That and saiyan tails grow back after a while.
It's not like they normally use them so much that they can't wait a month or so for it to heal.
That fact doesn't help much when a fat guy with a sword cuts your tail off in the middle of a rampage....
412  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: November 25, 2013, 08:36:43 PM
Huh nearly killed the thread for a week.....time to do it again!

Toriko 258:
Not a whole lot to say about this one. Honestly Toriko has been in a slump for me for a while.

One Piece 729:
Code:
Always nice to see our protagonists deciding they are going to whale on the villain for the arc. Things are being put into motion and that is always a good thing. Side note: I was rereading old chapters of One Piece on my phone during some recent travelling, and I figured out who the Toy Soldier is! And I don't mean that he is Rebecca's father. I mean he is, but that isn't what I mean. The Toy Soldier is Kyros, the Greatest Gladiator to Ever Fight in Corrida Coliseum who was mentioned in chapter 704! At first I was expecting Ricky to be Kyros, but that has been shown to be wrong and based on what we know, Kyros must of been turned into a toy. We haven't seen any other prominent toys and Rebecca seems to have an affinity for Kyros. Therefore, Kyros=Toy Soldier. I am calling it. Now show your hand Oda!

Bleach 558:
Code:
I don't care anymore. Bambietta made a tactical mistake in not just running away. I'm not moved by anything in the chapter. It wasn't offensively stupid. I just don't care about the characters, the battles, or really much of anything else in the series.

Nisekoi 100:
Code:
Didn't even realize that this was the 100th chapter till I was typing this up. Sweet chapter I guess, but it went no where so I give it a giant meh.

World Trigger 40:
Code:
I really do like this chapter. I wish it showed the battle a little more, but for some reason it works for me without the full battles. I guess it is because you se the end results of so many of them and they are each unique, so you can sort of get a feel for how they went without seeing the entire thing. Side note, rereading through the chapters has really made me appreciate the friendship between Yuma and Osamu a bit better.

Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal 36:
.....Why do I keep reading this series? Oh right I read everything in Shonen Jump....really don't care about this series though.

Dragonball Z 41:
I sort of feel like this chapter is something of a cop out. Also it just occurred to me, why would the Saiyans not put armor on their tails considering that they have size changing armor, I'm sure they could make it semi flexible or something.
413  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Doctor Who on: November 25, 2013, 08:09:40 PM
The episode was partially hit and partially miss for me. Basically I liked the Time War stuff, but the Zygon stuff fell flat. I'm also not sure what to think about the fact that they just ignored the whole Ascension plan thing. On one hand, that was really realluy stupid. On the other hand I feel like this makes the continuity all kinds of messed up.

Side note: What the heck was up with the curator?
Code:
Was he supposed to be the future of the Doctor? Is there supposed to be an implication that he is able to change into aged versions of his past incarnations when he retires? Or was it just a crazy old man?

Yay - I saw it and don't have to worry about spoilers now!

I enjoyed it, but I do have questions.

Code:
1) What does this mean for the daleks?  Were they sealed away along with Gallifrey? If so, wouldn't releasing Gallifrey release them too?

2) When did things change so that The Doctor killed everyone?  They've talked about it before as being time-locked and sealed away.  It was a major plot point in The End of Time (the one where The Master comes back and Tennant regenerates into Smith).

Code:
1. The only thing sealed away was the planet, the Daleks that were encircling the planet killed each other as the planet they were shooting at vanished. Now in theory there might be some Daleks on the planet, but we can hand wave those away as being killed whenever the planet is brought back because they won't have an orbital support fleet dividing the Time Lord's attention.

2. It is the same as the Doctor's "death" being time locked. The events always play out exactly the same, and no amount of time travel can change it. However, the perception of events from an outside perspective are not quite what actually happened. The 10th and 11th (wait are we renumbering them now?...w/e) express confusion at their ability to be there because it is time locked. However thy are able to be there because they were always there at that point in time, just like the drum beat was able to escape because it had always escaped. Mind you, I have some serious issues with the concept of a time lock, but no one needs to listen to that tirade of mine.

Is Radiant Historia really that good? I feel like I got pretty far into it and I was never elevated above "playable rpg" for me. Did I give up before it got good? Does the story have some amazing revelation I hadn't seen?
I don't recall the game having any kind of "amazing revelation" at any late points in the game. It did have some revelations later in the game that made sense and added some interesting layers to the earlier parts of the game. However I loved the game before that. As Dice said, it was a well written game. They had an interesting game mechanic (a book that lets you travel through your personal history) and they use it to its full effect. It handles the mechanic perfectly, giving you countless bad ends where you get to stumble around as you try and find the proper path to saving the world. I guess it really just boils down to being a well written game with an interesting mechanic (the time travel) that is done extremely well.

On the topic of TWEWY, I thought it was an alright game. The story really only picks up around the second "round" or w/e you want to call them. The battle system however was quite unpleasant. I do not have fond memories of the game and would call it a above average game at best.
415  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGFan's 20 Top 20 DS Games on: November 22, 2013, 07:07:26 AM
Radiant Historia is the best RPG to come out for I don't know how many years. I am offended by the fact the fact that it was not given the number 1 spot.  I hope all of you choke on a cat. Harumph. :p

But seriously, Radiant Historia did deserve better than 6th.

You know, I've had this very argument with people before and they all seemed to think I was crazy.  "The DS was great for JRPGs" is a mantra that people repeat so much they don't even question it anymore.  But when you really look at the catalog...if you're not into pure dungeon crawlers (which I'm not, really) there are very few stand-out titles.  There may be a lot of games but most of them were pretty forgettable.  Personally I think the PSP had a much better selection of JRPGs but I've been called a heretic for saying that...

But I'm not surprised by the number of VNs on the list because there were some pretty good ones on the DS.
You know it is weird. I'm pretty sure that I have previously thought to myself that the DS was where all the good JRPGs had moved, but I just reviewed my DS collection.....and the selection I have sucks. A few good games followed with a bunch of games I never want to play again. Kind of sad really.

Out of curiosity, what type and Pokemon do I provide for Friend Safari? (Trainer: Andrew)

I know you are Fairy type and have Kirlia and Mawille. I don't think we have been both online since you beat the E4 so I can't see your 3rd pokemon.


The third is Floetta.
417  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Doctor Who on: November 21, 2013, 06:55:18 AM
There's a theory going round that
Code:
the Doctor has absorbed all the regenerations of other Tlme Lords, making him basically immortal

New mini up - http://vimeo.com/79883993

Not nearly as interesting as the last one.
Video was taken down, but you can get the video off of iTunes for free.

Been playing Disagaea 4 recently. Game is alright. Worked better than I thought it was going to initially. Really wish that they had used Valvatorez's 400 years ago design for the entire game because it looks so much better than his present day design. Going through the post-game right now.
419  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y on: November 21, 2013, 06:41:02 AM
My understanding is that one place to hunt for shinies is the Safari Zone because shinies are more common inthere, which is the only place I have encountered one (although I forgot what it was).
420  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Doctor Who on: November 20, 2013, 07:14:22 AM
I am sad because I will be on an airplane when this initially airs. If I'm lucky I might be able to see one of the later showings. Worst case scenario, I will watch it in theaters on Monday.
The fact is, the whole "12 regenerations" was made canon during the 4th Doctor (I don't believe it was during Pertwee), when the creators had NO IDEA that the show was going to go on for that long. They probably made it 12 regenerations as a way of making the number so high that they figured we'd never have to worry. It was never a number to hang over our heads, so I have no problem with the creators making some easy way out of it, in order to stick with the original intentions of the show.
Well they made it 12 because that is the number of hours on a clock and clock=time and time=time lords. Science! But yeah I agree with you. Hell during one of the episodes, the crew at the time tried to imply that the first Doctor was not actually the first Doctor. I imagine that crew was basically thinking, "Eh hitting the limit will never matter so let's just throw some extras in there." Although I think the easiest way to punt the ball would be to just say, "The Sisterhood of Karn's elixir effectively gave him a new life resulting in him having 12 new regenerations when he was reborn." Easy out to punt the ball for a couple of decades.
Related - there are wild rumours flying around that
Code:
Tom Baker is indeed in the 50th story. And possibly Doctors 5-7. Based on a few things I've seen, I'm inclined to believe the Tom part
Code:
Yeah I had heard a rumor that Peter Davison is in it as well.
