I know who's catering if we ever do a RPGFan get together!

(Answer: It's Starmongoose)

Dice can provide the soup course. I love soups, it's one thing I love to make too since it's easy to change up a recipe and experiment. One of my favorite recipes inherited from my Mom is a lentil soup.
I would be in charge of desserts if we had such a get together. I'll see if I can post some pictures later.

Record of Agarest War 1. Grinding my way through the game a little more than I wanted to. Normally I love strategy/tactical RPGs, but this one is a bit of a grind. The battles are stingy about giving you gold afterwards to use in crafting new weapons, armor, items, etc. You have to craft an item that will have to be purchased later and combined with items dropped from monsters to craft upgrades. You also have to max out a particular piece so that it can be broken down to use an unique item component for future upgrade combinations. Alchemy/crafting is fun, I just wish gold wasn't as hard to come by.

Also, it's can be crazy expensive if one of your character(s) die in battle. If the character isn't resurrected by a first or second turn before the battle is over, you'll have to go to town to res the character in "First Aid" for a hefty price (price goes up as game goes and character develops with more exp, etc.)

Just rounding the mark and started "second generation" yesterday. I know the game isn't the most popular among RPGFans, but I'm having fun going through the game when I don't have to grind it out for gold, lol. ;) I also like making the decisions that influence my direction in dark, neutral or light. I may just have to power through w/o grinding when I can. I think Aeolus said here, that Record of Agarest 2 is the best of the trilogy.

Oh yeah and there's also the dating sim element to the game where your decision prompts influence affinity of marriage/offspring outcome. Kinda neat and that feature reminded me of Fire Emblem: Awakening in a way.
I told you it was grindy, and it is quite possibly going to get worse as you are only around the 1/5th mark in the game right now. Also I was the one who told you 2 was the best. :p

So Pixels was utter garbage.
You went in expecting anything different?
409  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: TV shows axed too soon on: August 08, 2015, 06:10:14 AM
I'd say Warehouse 13 was axed too soon because that show should have had 10 seasons or so....actually I am probably fine with how long it lasted as I recognize that shows do have limited lives. I do however wish its last season was a full season so it could have had more time to develop the last plot line.

Also I was reading the production history of Star Trek the Original Series earlier in the week and it seems that it was cancelled prematurely also. Heck it seems it was effectively killed by execs who put it in a bad time slot for its demographic during season 3 (reducing its budget in the process due to lower ad costs during that time slot).

I meant to post something here yesterday but it's not in this thread and I have no idea where I posted it but it probably made no sense at all in context.
Only place you posted on the 6th was in the Anime Journal thread.

I just want to mention I honestly was liking the story of World Trigger when I watched it, and I think the battles could be just as good in Manga form since they aren't so flashy. I might have to give up on the anime version and start read it instead, because the pacing was killing me. Not even just the overall pacing - every single episode felt like it was dragging things out as much as possible. I couldn't take it anymore, even the Jin fight couldn't save it. :/
Well, the manga is better, so pick that up and support the official release!...have I mentioned World Trigger is one of my favorite ongoing series? :p
412  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: August 05, 2015, 06:03:27 AM
I don't even remember. Probably somewhere in the late twenties or early thirties chapter wise.
Aww you quit right around the Jin fight which is when the series really started to get a grasp on what worked.
413  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: August 04, 2015, 06:19:27 AM
Sorry, I'm going to have to pass on World Trigger. I gave the manga a shot a year or two ago and I personally found it to be pretty uninspired. Thanks for the suggestion regardless.
I'm curious, how far did you get before giving up on it?
414  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The unofficial "recommend me a game" thread. on: August 02, 2015, 06:32:31 AM
Guys... I'm bored 

Name something fun to play. I doubt I'll play it, but who knows, i'm really that bored.
For something actually fun, play Muramasa Rebirth and/or its DLC.

Any suggestions for new series for me to watch? I tend to skew toward the shonen series. My favorites include Rurouni Kenshin, Trigun, Cowboy Bebop, Dragon Ball and DBZ, Naruto and Bleach before they became bloated behemoths, and Bakuman. I also really enjoyed the Ghost in the Shell S.A.C. series, though it is a bit of an atypical series for me. I don't like the shows that are super violent or contain dismemberment, which is why I'm not a big fan of Attack on Titan. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
I will always recommend World Trigger to everyone. The anime is made by Toie, so it has bad production quality. However the manga it is based on is one of my favorites week to week in Shonen Jump. Despite the low production quality, the anime does manage to accurately reproduce the manga (minus a few rare bumps), so I think it is worth watching it...at least until the filler arc starts in a couple of months.

Summer semester is wrapping up for me and I get a two week break until Fall semester starts next month. I just bought a few titles via PSN today. I haven't played a video game since April/May, so I'm looking to binge one of the titles below. I'm not sure how much time I'll have to complete a game, but I'm going to do my best. Anyway here's what I picked up:

- La Pucelle Tactics (PSOne classic)
- Stella Deus: Gate of Eternity (PS2 classic)
- Record of Agarest Series War Bundle (PS3)

Does the Record of Agarest War Series bundle include 2 or is it just 1 and 0? If it includes Record of Agarest War 2, then that is probably the game I would choose to replay out of those choices. It is the best of the Record of Agarest War series and I personally did not find La Pucelle or Stella Deus to be particularly amazing. No idea on which of the four games I would recommend if the bundle only has 1 and 0. I enjoyed 1, but it is extremely long and grindy. 0....is the weakest of the series.

Finished Tears to Tiara 2. Game was alright, although I was ready to move on by the time everything finished.

Started playing SMT 4 last night. Beginning is kind of rough. I think I should have gotten over the initial difficulty now, but kind of surprised at how easy it was to die at the beginning.

There are some "multi-class" dress-sphere that you'll want to level up each dress-sphere included within those dress-sphere.
Yuna = Warrior + Dark Knight
Rikku = White mage + Berserker
Pain = Samurai + Black Mage

Was there a bonus for maxing them all? I don't remember.

Also, if you didn't notice, check Yuna's sword when you put her in Warrior ;)
I vaguely recall that the Mascot class gets more powerful with every class you master (therefore mastering everyone maces it power), but I forgot how it gets more powerful.

Well, I've got 6 endings, I should be well off right?
Oh wait, there's 21 of them.

I'm sure I can follow a guide to make it easier...
WTH!?? https://squadronofshame.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/page_1.jpg (fully SFW if wondering - just a big image)

The pathing in School Days is rocket science.
That is quite the interesting pathing map. So what do the blue versus black dots represent?

Watching someone live tweet their experience with the anime on Twitter at the moment. Odd coincidence.
That's going to be entertaining once they get to the ending (assuming no one has spoiled the ending to them before).

The game can go really different from the anime I'm seeing.
The anime really took the scumbaggiest route available (which I've yet to find myself... I need to get in touch with my inner-douche or something). There are quite a good number of not-scumbaggy routes.
Also, there seems to be overall much more crying than sexing =/
Fun fact, the Nice Boat ending was not an ending in the original release of the game. It was a unique ending to the anime that was added (along with a couple of other endings?) to the HQ release.

Wow been a while since the last post here. Just wanted to let people know that Diancie is available via Mystery Gift until the 27th in US and EU for OR/AS.

Really considering getting on the game or the anime at some point with all the rave reviews everywhere....
You really should Steins;Gate is a great game. You can't go wrong with either the anime or the game. If you are only going to one or the other, I would recommend the game. The anime is an excellent adaptation which covers everything important from the game. However the anime does cut some stuff (most of which is minor) for time and doesn't really add anything of significance to replace it except for the final episode that serves as an epilogue. The game however has alternate endings, which I find to add an interesting level of "what if" to how events could have played out. The PS3 and Vita versions are both coming out in English next month, so maybe pick it up then.
