So I've made a bit of progress in Persona 2 Innocent Sin.....and holy crap this game is 20th Century Boys. It is just so weird. I mean I am enjoying it, but it is just sort of a weird sensation to see a similar story concept to 20th Century Boys (not the rumors part, but some other aspects of it). Mind you Persona 2 is 100x more batshit insane and they do go in completely different directions. But it is still weird. Enjoying the game overall though.

I saw that as well, I hope it reaches the $1,000,000 mark. Unfortunately, but as expected, the funding seems to have slowed way down.  They haven't hit $400,000 yet. Still, that they've even received as much as they have is excellent and gives me some real warm fuzzy feelings about the future of RPGs on a small scale.  There's still a market, you guys!

I've followed so many KickStarter projects and I can tell funding always slow down but the momentum rise again exponentially during the last days. Considering its promising start, the project can easily reach $2,000,000 or even $3,000,000. There are still 23 days to go ;)

I think you might be overly optimistic about the final total. Final two days generally give you about the same (maybe a little more) than the first two days. I haven't been keeping track of the day to day funding, but assuming 10k per day average (which I think is a little high) that would give the project 600k by the last two days, and the final two day push would put it around 900k, probably a little higher from people adding just because the funding was hit.

I thought the Rose-reaction was actually quite human for that particular incident and undeserving of the character-hatred it generates. I'll explain in metaphor but spoiler tag it anyway.

Say your favorite family pet dies. Dog, cat, doesn't matter; going to say dog for this example.

It's gone, you can't love it anymore, all those years of emotional investment are cut off in a snap.

Immediately someone pops up and says "Hey, I bought you a new dog that looks just like your dead dog. Here!"

It might bark like your dog. It might be the same breed. It might even prance the same, wag its tail the same,
and raid your toilet all the same.

But it's not 'your' dog. It will never be 'your' dog.

In time and with healing it will eventually be 'your new dog'. But to expect someone to just up and go
 'Oh, hey, new dog. All's cool!' on the spot, like a lot of fans expected Rose to do with Doctor 2.0,
...I don't think so.

Oh and fun factoid about that moment.

The Doctor technically gave Doctor 2.0 a piece of the Tardis to grow. So new Doctor and Rose get to have
their own parallel universe adventures. It's a scene that didn't quite make it into the final cut.

O_o That is the opposite reason of why I thought she got fan hate over that sequence....
The reason I'm familiar with her getting hate over the scene is because Doctor 2.0 whispers that "he loves her" and she immediately smooches him despite her previous protests over how it wasn't the Doctor. Making her come off as extremely shallow or something.

Also, the whole giving them a piece of the Tardis makes me hate the sequence even more. So I am glad that didn't make the final cut. God damn it Russel T. Davies, I don't like your Mary Sue. >.>

It definitely looks solid, and from the creator of Final Fantasy Tactics there's no doubt it's going to be a successful KickStarter campaign. I'm surprised to see most other staff members are Caucasian rather than Japanese.
That's because according to him all he is doing is the story and world design.

To be fair, we all do stupid things online at 6AM.

Well, I don't. I just go to Panera Bread, which is the stupidest thing of all to do at 6AM. Or any time, really.

... I used to eat their like every day :(

...... I think I'll go cry myself to sleep.
*checks clock to see it is 6 AM* So posting on RPG Fans is stupid? Huh good to know. :p

The time stamps are pretty screwy too.  I wonder if at 6am he realized he 'dun fuck'd up good.
That would require him to make that realization over the course of minute after not realizing how badly he screwed up over the course of 8 hours. Although I suppose he might have realized he screwed up after waking up and then decided, "If I'm going to fuck up, then I am going to fuck up royally." Kind of a stupid attitude, but I guess it is possible.

Play Persona 2 Innocent Sin at the moment. Game is alright. The whole rumors becoming reality thing is an awesome set up. I am sort of meh on the characters at the moment. Hopefully that will improve.

Side note, I remembered that there were supposed to be some characters from Persona 1 who returned, and for some reason thought Lisa was one of the returning characters since it had been so long since I played Persona 1. Only to become confused when she was confused about Personas. Later looked it up in a wiki to see that no she is different from the character I was thinking of despite having a semi-similar design.

Might be a minority opinion here but unless you have any way to watch all of Series 7, the anniversary movie, AND the following Christmas special you might want to hold off on Series 5 +.

Edit: You know what? I'm just going to spoiler code this in case you want to go in full blind without any preconceptions. It holds no spoilers but it's 'negative nancy' opinion; so caveat emptor's given for free here.
Disagree, season 6 is enjoyable. Hell, it has my favorite episode of all time in it (The Doctor's Wife).
414  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Doctor Who on: January 19, 2014, 07:42:59 AM
I like pretty much any Episode with River in it. So, look forward to them? Some people hate her, but I don't understand it. I think shes fun.
415  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: January 19, 2014, 07:34:21 AM
Finished Guided Fate Paradox. Ending was crap. I really don't know what they could have done which wouldn't have made me say that, but it was just uninspired and boring. Kind of sad as I had enjoyed the majority of the rest of the game.
I will see it for myself but I can almost never relate to those hyperbolic opinions. People saying FF X is a terrible game, people saying Xenosaga 2 is a terrible game because fuck you that's why.. Just ugh no... (or jumping on tired recycled bullshit internet bandwagon opinions, I mean not well constructed opinions)
Xenosaga 2 is horrible though. :p Well to be more precise, the battle system is horrible. The story is enjoyable as it has a pace increase from 1 which was a little slower than it ideally could have been. The battle system though was a miserable experience from what I can recall. I hated it while I was playing it, and I have no desire to ever replay it.

There's always White Knight Chronicles.
.....oh god right that is a thing. If you plan on playing this, just get 2 as it has the entirety of 1 on the disk with some play tweaks as well.
417  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Unsung Story: A Kickstarter by Yasumi Matsuno. on: January 19, 2014, 07:19:24 AM
Even though I've never cared for the story and characters that Matsuno creates because of how poorly structured it is, I've always loved the way he handles strategy elements. So I hope to god that this comes to PC at least and not on a mobile phone where I actually have to deal with my iPhone.

It's coming to PC. The initial basic release is for IOS, Android and PC.
Well it is coming to PC if it hits its funding goal (which it probably should). If it doesn't hit the goal then I believe it will be coming out to just IOS and Android.

So this Kickstarter has entered its last 48 hours, and it is going well. Currently at 355k last I checked. We must hit 400k and maybe 407k though because we must get playable Robot Masters and the Yellow Devil mini. So all of you support with your life savings!
419  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Unsung Story: A Kickstarter by Yasumi Matsuno. on: January 18, 2014, 06:47:27 AM
So currently at 345k. Generally speaking it seems to be slowing down, but that is pretty normal for a Kickstarter after a couple of days. It should probably hit its goals, although I'm not completely sure when to guess it will hit the goal. I'm thinking maybe 20 days from now, but will need more data points to see how much of a slow up it has.
Besides, FFXII wasn't really that bad (although I am concerned that there will be bullshit loot mechanics like in every other Matsuno game; though being an SRPG might mean that it'll work a hell of a lot better than in FFXII).
Yes it was! Worst numbered FF to date. Hell I rank it below FF3 and I despise FF3. :p

At least you didn't rank it below FFII. :p

And at any rate, in spite of my issues with FFXII (especially its end/post game), I would definitively rank it above FFXIII-1 since at least FFXII was not just a hallway simulator/cutscene treadmill/tech demo. At least there were things to discover, like hidden Espers, in FFXII's massive overworld (versus FFXIII's Land Down Under, which was little more than the Calm Lands+).

.....actually I did rank it below FF2.  The bottom of my list of FFs by quality is FF2 is better than FF3 which is better than FF12. :p As for 13, I actually got some enjoyment out of it despite its poor design decisions, so it is ranked somewhere near the middle of my list.
420  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Doctor Who on: January 17, 2014, 07:08:28 AM
My ranking for companions from best to worst:

The Last Centurion
Captain Jack

I feel like I am missing someone because there is a lot of space between my feelings for Clara and Rose. If River was a proper companion I'd probably put her above Amy. Huh and looking at list, I seem to like characters who are attracted to the Doctor less.....well minus Captain Jack, but he loves everyone.
