I have no expectation this is a good idea, yet I feel compelled to buy it if it gets a US release. O.o

Fall 2016

Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans 2
This is also gonna be good.

No it ain't. I've yet to see Sunrise not totally blow it on a Gundam's second season.
To be fair, they blew it at the end of the first season as well. :p

On the topic of atmosphere of Persona 3 versus Persona 4, I personally greatly prefer Persona 4. I originally was not interested in getting Persona 3 because the impression I had of it (although I don't remember why) was that it was too dark for my tastes. My best friend convinced me to try it though when I was really bored one day. Upon playing it, I found that it wasn't really dark so much as "cartoony dark" (coffins of blood!, rivers of blood!) and thus it was entirely playable because it was impossible to take its atmosphere seriously. Hell the most disturbing aspect (evokers being guns you point at yourself) loses all impact an hour in because you see it so much. Persona 4 on the other hand didn't try too hard on that front which I felt worked better for me. A case of less is more I guess.

I honestly don't think the first Cold Steel's story was that great, I got flashbacks of Final Fantasy VIII and Persona 3 & 4, and don't remember much of the characters or the plot itself. It really dropped the ball when they referenced the "War of the Lions" and had a character named "Miner Dick." If a character's name sounds penile, it's probably a good idea to change it to something less suggestive. And would it kill to have realistic battle dialogue? The battle system was for me the saving grace, though it would have been nice if one could just turn off animations instead of making the player constantly mash the Start button.
...I must have missed the parts of FF8, P3, and P4 that were about changes in society brought about by rapidly changing technology and the conflicts brought about by those who seek to cling to the past and those who seek to throw away the past with no middle ground allowed by either side.

Since the only common ground I can think of between those four games is the school setting, you might be happy to know that Cold Steel 2 is not set in the school (for reasons unspecified since there is at least one person in the thread who has not beaten the game).

Hey, there might have been some universal translator device in there somewhere, I dunno.

What really surprised me is that, as soon as he noticed I had atleast some interest in the insides of my laptop, he give me some pointers so I'd be better prepared to tackle something like this myself in the future. Like holy shit, people in this business don't usually assume their customers have working brains! (Which is, I guess, not totally unfair, but still...)
You must have walked into a TARDIS disguised as a computer repair shop. Be on the watch for alien attacks in your city.

Cliffhanger Ending: Yes/No?
For Cold Steel 1? I feel yes is too weak of an answer. Cold Steel 2? I've heard less so than 1 but with some unresolved plotlines for 3.

I spent yesterday working because I had nothing to do on my day off. I'll be taking Friday off instead because today I get Trails of Cold Steel 2! Went to the gym yesterday also. Normally only go on Tues and Thursday, but since I had nothing to do figured I would go ahead and get my Tuesday workout out of the way so I have an extra hour with CS2 today.

As for moves, break dancing pig move in Color Splash video.


Also, I imagine Rose in a more modern context as a fierce bisexual with a penchant for pain (giving or receiving, who can really say for sure?)

I officially have no idea what's going on anymore.
Look all you have to do is reverse the polarity flow on the cheese by putting it through the ionizing grater. This will cause the space-time continuum to temporarily stop, allowing you to speak with a goat name Bob. He can explain everything to you. Just make sure you don't do this after midnight because if you do then the cheese will get stuck in the carburetor creating tachyons which will cause you to meet a goldfish named Fylan instead. Fylan has no idea what is going on, so he'll just end up lying to you about it until he convinces you that you need to put on a clown suit in order for everything to make sense. And while that is necessary, he'll tell you to go to Tennessee while wearing it which is not necessary at all. Oh and as always, remember your crossbow because today is Tuesday.

P.S. Beware the dancing cat, it wishes to dance on your grave.

i think amiibo's are stupid. hey lets make dlc but make you buy a physical item to get it! how does nintendo not get shit on for this?
People have been complaining about amiibos since they were first announced. You just don't see a lot of people complaining about them these days because the idea is old news and nothing major has been locked behind amiibos in any major releases. So everyone who is uninterested in amiibos tends to just ignore the news about them. I'm sure there will be significant complaining about them again once the next Zelda game is out and people realize they are unable to get the Wolf Link companion without the Wolf Link Amiibo (and without playing Twilight Princes).

For me though, UI'm just going to be enjoying adding 8-bit Link to my collection along with OoT Link because Amiibos are good quality physical items.

Just beat Star Ocean 5 at 25 hours...wow that was bad. I'd say that it is the worst game I have played this year, but I did play Nights of Azure a few months ago. Very hard to make a call between which of those two is worse. Seems like all the good RPGs I own on the PS4 are rereleases. Kind of disappointing. >.>

Not going to bother with even trying to go for 100%. This unfortunately leaves me in an awkward position of having nothing to play for the remainder of the day or tomorrow. I'm planning on working on Monday despite it being a holiday (and then taking Friday off). So a bit more than a day and a half of no games until Trails of Cold Steel 2 comes out. The waiting is going to be torture. x_x If only I could find someone who broke street date!

So playing Star Ocean 5 still...Rellia just got kidnapped. I think I've lost count of how many times that has happened at this point. I feel like she is competing with Princess Peach for highest number of successful kidnappings and she might be winning. Worst part is, the game has done nothing to make me connect to her other than make her a kid and assume I have to care for her as a result. Ugh. Hopefully can just finish this up tomorrow. >.>

I'd want just the Toon Zelda amiibo to add to my collection of Zelda (the princess, not the series) figures. Too bad it's not actually possible to buy limited edition Nintendo products.
The Amiibos are now up on Amazon. Only down side is if you want the Toon Zelda, she is only in a two pack with Toon Link as far as I can tell.
57  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Legend of Zelda Topic (Latest: NX title delayed to '17) on: September 02, 2016, 07:16:52 PM
On the topic of Amiibos, they are live on Amazon as I type this (just preordered all 4 myself).
58  Media / General Games / Re: Misc. Gaming News Topic on: September 01, 2016, 06:30:41 PM
I am content with the Nintendo direct. New Amiibo for my collection. Dark Rattata was revealed...not exactly excited about the Rattata, but it does point towards a specific leak being right. And some other stuff in that leak make me happy. :D

I am so confused by Star Ocean 5. I feel like I got a defective disk where half the dialogue isn't triggering in every cut scene. Everything is just so bare bones. >.> Like I have two party member who joined while I was being chased by enemies by saying they were being chased out of town as well. The party accepted it (for whatever reason) and now they are just there with no asking "Why are you still here? We have gone back and forth between two countries twice now. Don't you have your own stuff to take care of or something?"

I know why they are there, I just don't know why everyone in the party is accepting it. And I feel like everything in the story so far is just as bare bones. This isn't a bad story (so far) it just isn't fleshed out in the slightest. It is more of a story outline than an actual story.

Edit: And I just noticed that I'm only 10 hours in and my characters are level 39.

@ RANADIEL - Congrats on the dedication to Trails there good sir. 3 play-throughs of a meaty RPG like that is respectable for sure! I tip my hat.
Not only was this my third playthrough, but I talked to EVERY NPC after every story event. I saw a fuck ton of text and discovered a few new minor things in the game that I had missed previously. There are only two or three conversations that I am aware of that I missed. All of which came from spending time with a party member causing dialogue with a tangentially related character to change when I was no where near a save. Really wish I could jump straight into Cold Steel 2 now....especially since Star Ocean 5 is living up to its reputation. x_x
