So just about to go into chapter 13, from what I recall this is when I can do the bad ending....I think I know what I am going to have to do to trigger this bad end. This is going to be interesting...

Honestly I see why the game gets a lot of flack. I forgive the reused environments and enemies and such from 1, that's ok, but when you basically just rehash a bunch of the story elements into "what if" scenarios, it does get a little depressing. Also Chapter 11 pretty much killed me (not sharing how or why), so the rest of the game was like meh, whatever. I enjoyed it and all, first new rpg I've played since xillia 1 came out, so yeah. Worth my time and money for sure, but only because Milla is my favorite tales character ever design wise...plus Jude is pretty much awesome now.

Aww you didn't feel anything in chapter 12? That's when they turn the feels up to the maximum if you ask me.

The PS2/Wii game is STIV, correct? How much connection is there between games in the series?
The way I recall the connections between games working is:
ST2 is a direct sequel to 1, with all the major characters returning and two new females on the team.
ST3 has the same male lead, but he is now in Paris instead of Tokyo. I seem to recall there are cameos of all the ST2 females.
ST4 is back in Tokyo, but the entire ST3 cast shows up and joins in. I also recall the game is extremely short and is mainly just a quick finale.
ST5 follows a new lead with a cameo from the male lead and one of the female characters at the beginning.

....mind you I've only played 5, but I have read translated scripts for 1-4.

Persona 5's protagonist needs sun worse than I do.

From the trailer it seems to have a darker vibe to it than P4 was. All that red and the breaking chains symbolism. But then again the next trailer could completely change all that.

I dunno. I dig it though.

P4 was hardly a 'dark' game. As far as I remember it never reached some of the most dense moments P3 had.

Personally I don't find P3 to really be that "dark" either. It has some dark aspects to the plot, but those get washed away by the overall hopeful tone of the game and the ridiculousness caused by trying too hard to be dark (for example the amount of blood on the ground during the extra hour makes me laugh more than it makes me feel uncomfortable).

So I've been watching the second season of Defiance on Hulu, and I've come to a realization. I hate this town, I would be perfectly okay with it being burnt to the ground because the people in it are absolute assholes and I don't care for 90% of them. You may now be asking, why do I keep watching it? Well besides the fact that these people are probably going to end up burning the town to the ground, either figuratively or literally, I love Nolan. He is a great character and I love his portrayal. I watch the show at this point for him and nothing else. Well okay Irisa's plot is alright, but that is partly because it ties very closely to Nolan's plot. The Doc is also alright....kinda. Everyone else can burn (although I think that is the reaction I am supposed to have Datak).

This is what I'm seeing.

--- edit ---

Okay after putting your thing down, flipping it, and reversing it, I see what it's supposed to be.

Yeah, not gonna lie, I've been seeing it as some weird bird thing this whole time...

That thing is more Rorschach than Rorschach, I just see metal goop.

...god damn it, this is the one site where I would not expect people to not get what it is. Roxas is very disappointed in all of you.

With that said, I need to ask you guys who are leagues ahead of me. With what logic do you guys develop your characters using the Allium Orb system??

What I mean to say is, no decision seems better than any other in terms of which extractors/elements are used most or maxed. Thus far I have been working via point priority with the goal of keeping a well rounded balance for each element so as not to miss artes and skills. My second priority then becomes focusing on element corresponding with the skills I want strongest. Is this a solid strategy or am I missing something?

Eh personally I just put whichever extractors get the character the most points on them, leave them on till they star an element, try to finish off any other elements if it was a multi element extractor, and then repeat. Has worked great for me so far. By the time I recruited Gaius (chapter 9 I think?), I had multiple characters on the verge of maxing out their orbs. Then again I am grinding like a mad man, so what do I know?

Side note, after you finish the side quest that unlocks poker (tengu mask quest), you can get some insane extractors from poker which is extremely easy. One is 2, 2, 3, and 3 for the four the elements and one is 4 dark 4 light just as some examples.

Unrelated but Ranadiel wtf is your avatar it looks like the eraserhead baby
O.o It is Roxas in the Kingdom Hearts Final Mix's secret ending Another Side Another Story: Deep Dive. He's running up the side of the building while fighting off a hoard of heartless with dual keyblades. If I recall correctly this specific image is from Roxas looking at Riku as Riku is passing by Roxas after jumping off the top of the building. If you haven't seen it, you should totally look up the video (and its predecessor Another Side Another Story) because it is amazing.

First reaction on seeing Shulk's face on the preview image for the teaser video: AHHHHHHH! Kill it with fire!

Looking forward to playing as him in the game. Should be loads of fun!....but still that face. *cries*

I'm so happy..... :D
SO HAPPY. I think it's finally time I preordered too. I'm just worried, is anyone getting the WiiU one at all?? I feel like everyone is on the the 3DS.

Also, Dunban was on the Smash art...another character or art fire arts sake (probably the latter, but that's cool too)?

I love nintendo directs
I'll be getting the Wii U version because it is better for playing the game at parties since I only know one other person with a 3DS.

On the topic of Suikoden 5, it is easily my favorite game in the Suikoden series.I don't remember the load times being an issue for me, and I absolutely love the storyline in that game.

And shit forgot about her. And Viki too for that matter.
There isn't really a whole lot to explain about Viki, she has the most powerful teleportation magic in existence and it happens to go crazy when she sneezes. Just headcannon her as a time lord with an internal TARDIS and boom everything works. :p

So just occurred to me, this topic has not covered the biggest news story in gaming this week. Lizard Squad. Basically a bunch of man children (or idiotic teens) who have been doing DDOS attacks on various web services recently including League of Legends, Blizzard, Twitch, PSN, and I believe Xbox Live. Oh, and they tweeted a bomb threat to a plane with a Sony Executive on it. So yeah, they are going to jail the moment the FBI tracks them down.

Are there unique chests in fractured dimensions? Or, rather, chests with unique items?

Mostly just seems to be gald/duplicate accessories. Which I'll happily skip.
There is at least one that has a mildly important item in it. I believe it is the fractured dimension in chapter 10 that has a dual sword that is only available there and which is a required item to construct the ultimate dual swords. Might be others, but that is the only one I have heard of (not actually there yet myself)

Am I the only one seeing a significant problem here or am I insane/the only sane one?
I certainly see the problems you are describing in the way you are characterizing the situation. I just am not familiar enough with the situation to be able to add anything to the discussion.

Eh knew the multiplayer was coming due to a leaked achievement list (which based on an FAQ is apparently an outdated achievement list), so I am neither shocked nor upset over this.
59  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Finishing What is Left Undone on: August 27, 2014, 07:31:28 AM
Tales of Symphonia: DotNW (Chronicles version)
Just pretend this one does not exist. You'll be happier. Tempted to say the same for Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria, but its loli-stalker ending does not compare with the horror that is DotNW.

= Unless the game starts paying off 50k per job, I have no idea how the full 20 mill can get paid without putting in some MAD hours into the game.
Post game you can fight powered up versions of the strong monsters, which from what I've heard pay ridiculous amounts of cash (and I assume job points). So I assume that they are how you pay it off. Although I just hit 1 million payed off and I am in chapter 5 or 6, so with enough grinding you can probably pull it off before the end of the game.
