Yeah....so this company is horrible at Kickstartering. Based on what they have said so far in the comments section, it appears that currently the only exclusive to the Kickstarter is the art print (and gold bordered cards if you are insane). I highly doubt that the current prices for the tiers are cheaper than the game will be at launch, so I am currently struggling to understand why I should keep my current pledge level and not just drop down to the press start level.

I wonder if each subsequent Megaman game will be an expansion....haha.
They've said they want to do something like that, but that they currently only have rights to MM1 so they can't do them as stretch goals or anything with the current Kickstarter.

Given how unconventional the name is as a title for...well, anything, I agree with this.
The game's name is never really pronounced through voice over work either, unless you see the japanese characters that demonstrate it's "yeez" over "wise".


If I'm not mistaken, didn't the manual of the first north-american release of Ys mentionned it was pronunced "eece" as in the word "fleece"? It also seems confirmed by the the original writing イース or iisu, which does use a hard "s" pronunciation over a softer "z", so I guess both yeez or wise would be wrong. And since it's in katakana, we can consider that it is only the closest way possible to render the intended pronunciation in Japanese. Hence I think that we can consider "eece" as the official pronunciation, or either way the closest one we can have in English, especially since it was in an official release and that the japanese pronunciation seems to confirm it.
The name Ys is based on a legendary French city that was supposedly lost in the ocean. According to Wikipedia, the proper pronunciation of that city's name is EESS, which I think is the same as what you are saying.

So my friend who is obsessed with Mega Man showed me this yesterday at work. Apparently there is a new Kickstarter for a licensed Mega Man Board Game. It got funded yesterday in about 4 hours and now has a month to get through stretch goals. In the board game, you apparently go through the Robot Master stages by playing cards from your hand and your opponents can play cards from their hands to make the stage more difficult. After you beat all the stages you face the Robot Master to get his power. Rinse and repeat till you beat all the Masters and then face Wiley.

Base game is currently 5 Robot Masters from MM1 with an expansion for the two Robot Masters from the rerelease. Cutman is currently not in the game, but presumably he will be added in one of the future stretch goals (although he does not appear to be in any of the silhouetted ones on the Kickstarter page atm).

Game looks interesting, although I think the people behind the game are making poor choices in terms of stretch goal strategy. For example, the Cutman stretch goal should be publically announced like the "paint everything" stretch goal. Adding new bosses are what will probably make people pledge more.

Mana Khemia

The game seems to be taking a turn for the depressing as of chapter 8. Hopefully I am wrong. Not that it seems to be done bad but rather I simply don't want it to happen.

Code:
The chapter intro conversations seem to be leading to Vayne is the Mana and Sulphur is an ordinary cat. Been suspicious as soon as they mentioned Sulphur as a kitten. Him being unable to talk was also suspicious. What depresses me is that they seem to be going the path of making sulphur die of old age. Hoping that Vayne can bring him back somehow if he does. He brought back a tree to life so don't know if it is in his power.

Loved Sulphur ever since he called that Freshman a bitch
The fact that you don't want that to happen just proves that you like the characters, which means the game has done a good job with them. I want to provide you comfort that everything will be alright, but I can't think of anything that would help that isn't a major spoiler.

Code:
Instead I'll just point out that Vayne's battle sprite uses Sulphur, so Sulphur has to still be around in some form or another unless they decided to make an entirely new battle sprite for Vayne for the last....third of the game?

And finished up the Terminator franchise (for now) last night with Salvation. It was certainly better than T3. I'm torn on whether I am sad that there was no trilogy to it like had been planned. On one hand I liked it, on the other hand I don't really think it would have worked as well with two more movies. Oh well reboot is coming instead, so no need to worry about that. >.>

Watched T3 last night. It wasn't as bad as I had been lead to believe, but the action was surprisingly boring.

hold thy tongue

That scene was....alright. But the 20 min chase scene at the beginning was quite boring, and I in fact managed to finish two comic while it was going on.

Okay that was something completely different than what it sounded like you were implying.
413  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Pillars of Eternity on: December 11, 2013, 07:03:26 AM
Kickstarter Projects have long been "inspired" by games that are clearly very different from the actual project. They just drop names.

I once saw a Kickstarter turn-based strategy game supposedly "inspired" by Zelda, Metroid, Final Fantasy and Minecraft.
This is not one of those cases though...

50th anniversary spoilers (don't know if I need to mark those still):

Code:
Moffat has confirmed that Matt Smith is still, canonically speaking, the 11th Doctor. http://www.cultbox.co.uk/news/headlines/8684-doctor-who-exec-confirms-numbering-matt-smith-is-the-11th-doctor

Code:
Wait what? Does Hurt not count because he was a forced regeneration or something? Doesn't really make that much sense...
415  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: December 10, 2013, 07:17:39 AM
Watched Terminator 2 last night. Great movie. Worked better for me than Terminator 1 despite fully knowing the plot for both. Really can't think of any specific points to mention.
416  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: December 09, 2013, 07:11:22 AM
Watched Terminator for the first time last night. The movie was alright. I don't have any major complaints about it. Well okay maybe one. It is so freaking 80s at some points.....also I suppose it bugs me that there were all those skulls just randomly lying around in the future....I just don't get why. But those are both very minor complaints. I can certainly see why it is considered so good, but at the same time I was spoiled about the movie's plot probably like a decade ago, so there really was no surprises for me other than the fact that the Cyberdyne scene at the end was cut from the ending (because it is apparently a cut scene that I also spoiled myself to). Overall decent movie, but it lacked the impact that it probably would have had had I been able to see it unspoiled.

Actually one more complaint. The "romance" feels all kinds of weird to me. It borders on Stockholm Syndrome in terms of feeling. I know that isn't an accurate description of what is going on, but it still feels horribly off to me and just barely above being a giant WTF.
417  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: December 06, 2013, 07:18:12 AM
Huh vaguely wish you had mentioned the Black Friday sale while it was ongoing, but I am noticing that that the simul-cast manga can be read for free with ads. So I don't really regret missing that. Besides the only one I am interested in is Fairy Tail.....because I hate myself or something, so getting a full membership would probably have been a poor choice economically.

Edit: Oh okay, seems I can only access the most recent chapter.....meh can live with that.

Hmmm who else for the rest...
Eh throw me in to add another one to the list.....no good ideas on who to assign me to though. >.>

Shouldn't it be hard to eat a sensu bean with a hole in your chest? How does that work?
I dunno magic. It isn't like Sensu beans wait to be digested before healing you. *shrug* Alternatively just use Dende to heal.
420  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: December 03, 2013, 07:08:23 AM
So don't feel like doing a full recap of yesterday's Shonen Jump because it was kind of short on good manga this week. World Trigger was good. Toriko was decent. Nisekoi was alright......and everything else sucked.

Saiyans are also not the brightest people in the galaxy.
Their scouters, armors and ships were made by other races too.
Yeah I guess Saiyans are fairly stupid. I mean they are fully aware of the fact that they get a powerup every time they are beaten to near death, but the ones in the series spend their time training rather than blowing holes in their chests and then eating sensu beans/getting healed other than that one time Vegeta tried to do it on Namek.
