Started Witcher 2, I'm still in the prologue. I'm not really sure what I think about the game yet. Gameplay feels meh to me. Too early to really have any feelings on the storyline.

Rewatched through all of Stein;s Gate over the weekend(okay skipped the last episode but w/e). Then started rewatching FMA: Brotherhood. Both great series, although for FMA my brain kept thinking, "wait where is (blank) from the manga." Damn year and a quarter long anime cutting minor stuff. >.>

Yeah, unfortunately Brotherhood pretty much abridged the early arcs in favor of completing the anime at roughly the same time as the manga and because a large amount of that material was already covered in the original anime before that decided to go flying off the rails. Of course, that still left gaps like the first showdown in Central skipping over the fight between Envy and Lanfan (which was unfortunate for Ranfan since that was basically half of her asskicking screentime right there; which of course led to the confusion from the anime only crowd as to why she was suddenly wiping the floor with Gluttony when she returned right before the final battle). It's pretty much why the manga is the best version of the series.
Indeed the manga is the best version, Brotherhood is the second best.

Alright I finally beat the game and got all endings.  I am definitely disappointed with this game.  The dungeons and combat are so freakin awful urghhhhhh.  So glad I'm finally done.  If it wasn't for a couple (sadly not most) of the girls being fun to talk to I would have never finished this game.  Narika and Chloe's events are so awful I think I've suffered brain damage.  Ellie best girl though :)
I beat the game with the normal ending last night. Going for the rest of the endings after I finish all the NG+ quests. Sadly both of the ones I have right now are item gathering quests. The item gathering quests are by far the worst thing about the game. And I will second Ellie being the best. Also will second Narika being awful....Chloe's didn't bother me that much.

Started a new expert level record of Infamous Second Son doing the evil path this time. It really sucks that I'm such a good guy because my first playthrough would have been more enjoyable this way. It's so refreshing to just blow everything up in your path and not give a shit what happens instead of worrying you are hitting civilians or bystanders when you are good and trying to fight the enemies in the city. I just shoot in every direction with no care in the world. Expert mode hasn't really been any different so far from what I can tell other than maybe you die a little bit sooner than normal.
Really? I found Evil less enjoyable because I preferred the Good power ups more. Also found the good storyline to be more rewarding (although the evil ending was.....interesting). I did my expert mode playthrough first with my good set up. Found I died a lot against the beefier enemies (damn gatling guns and football players).

So I just hit chapter 7 and oh my god the first sub-labyrinth kicked my ass. I'm not sure if it is that the darkness element is screwing me over or if my Star Children are due for being replaced but getting through there was fun despite being at least 10 levels higher than the enemies. Now to get through one more sub labyrinth and the pride labyrinth so I can move on to the final chapter although I should probably grind for the last two item based classes first. On the bright side, nearly done with getting armor for the heroines, just two more quests left. Few more for weapon parts though.

I listened to the extra audio that is in the FFX/FFX-2 HD collection. Didn't seem too bad to me. Went online to find out more and discovered that it continues on from an FF X 2.5 Novel. Read a summary of the novel and couldn't stop laughing my ass off.

Tidus and Yuna get shipwrecked on an Island. Tidus sees what appears to be a blitzball and tries to kick it only to discover that it is a bomb. It explodes and kills Tidus, sending his head flying over to Yuna who faints. Once she wakes up she resurrects him using fireflies or something.

....is that for real? It sounds more like bad fan fiction. I mean it is hilarious, but that doesn't feel like it is real.

Although regardless of how real it is, Tidus being stupid enough to kick a bomb sounds legit.

I saw Amazing Spider-Man 2 tonight. I won't post spoilers.

It felt.......disjointed. That's the best word I can think of.

There is far too much focus on the love plot between Peter and Gwen. It felt like a soap opera.

The villains felt really rushed, particularly Electro. Overall, it was disappointing - which sucks because Spider-Man is my favourite comic character.

Go see Captain America 2 instead, it's a much better movie.
Review I've seen of it liked it. I have a distinct feeling that this movie is going to be very divisive. Oh well I'm still going to see it as I loved the first one (in large part because of the Gwen/Peter dynamic).

I'm interested in the game, but I haven't been following the news too closely. Just preordered it yesterday.

Took me way too long for me to realize Alternis Dim's real identity ...but whatever.  It took me way too long to realize how goddamn flawed Edea's memories are.  How they hell did she NOT recognize Ringabell?  Aren't her and Alternis supposed to be really good friends?  Do they ever explain that or ...was Alternis just wearing a helmut 8 days a week, 25 hours a day?

Well I believe it is stated somewhere that Artemis had basically given himself to the darkness (aka become a dark knight) before Edea's father found him. So yeah, he was probably in permanent Dark Knight form when he met Edea. Either that or he decided to get his unholy hair do after he started wearing the helmet and she didn't recognize Ringabel with that eldritch horror on his head. I think the better question is why the heck did Ringabel think Ringabel was his name.

So this weeks' World Trigger was interesting, we actually had shonen characters retreat at the when it became clear that they were outmatched in a fight. It was weird to see, yet it is logical and sort of duh. Hurray for tactics! Really do love this series because its tacticalish approach to the conflicts.

do you really need 100% of events to get a girl's ending?  I would think some of them wouldn't be required.  That would also mean you can't keep a save near the end of the game and get multiple endings from it because of the choices where you can only pick one girl. 
You don't need 100% (because that requires either a ton of save scumming or multiple playthroughs), I meant all of their (heroine) storyline events.

Tell me with a straight face that Peco isn't the most adorable thing ever.. Just try me. Talk shit about Peco and you will become my arch nemesis.
I guess I am your arch-nemesis then because he looks horrifying to me. Like an old man's head with tiny legs. Personally I'm not a big fan of BoF3's art style. *shrug*


On one hand I hate the Agarest's drawing of girls, and more girls, and MORE girls, and usually a trope of each type.  But the designs are so unique and brilliantly drawn and coloured that I can't help but to look.  Plus, I love the "generational differences" made by each new protagonist (I think it's usually just hair colour --- but I love nonetheless for that detail).
Usually it is just hair color and clothing color, but you do the sons of the winged girls who end up with wings also.

You could also contact sony for a service repair, which should run you 130 bucks in the states. Iirc they offer to "upgrade" your older system for a newer model too if you want.
I've done that twice, they just send you a refurb.....hence why I had to do it twice since the first one died again within like two months to the same problem.

Ending Requirements:
Normal- I'm not 100% sure, but I think finish the game without meeting the requirements for any endings
Character Endings: Finish all events and choose them in the final chapter
Harem Ending: See all character endings and meet requirements for all of them (auto happens the first time you meet the requirments, choice after that)

I personally am wailing on all the dungeons and side quests (Wake is currently level 50 and I just beat chapter 5, basically every boss dies to Bond Drive!). Fyi, you unlock the Dungeon Master class when you beat five sub-dungeons. Dungeon Master lets you see traps and if you have three in a group enemies have a harder time detecting you.

Edit: Lmao, I just did my first classmating of chapter 6, and ass shot. I figured I would be getting a new angle but I was not expecting that.
