Got Valkyria Chronicles Remastered yesterday. Hurray! Working on grinding out potentials at the moment. Might try playing through the Behind Her Blue Flame DLC to get the uber gun for the main campaign tonight. Still a great game overall.

So... VC was one of my favorite games ever between 2008 and 2012, but... I have to admit I don't know what "grinding out potentials" is.  Explain?

Characters all have a set of abilities/modifiers called Potentials, and only a few (and generally the worst ones) start unlocked.

I COMPLETELY forgot that a lot of Potentials need to be "unlocked", but yes, now that you mention it, I remember.  You basically just have to fulfill certain conditions in battle, right?
You have to get 5 "points" with the character and then go visit the reporter so that she will interview the character and their final personal potential, which is based off of their interview, will unlock. The points are gotten by deploying a unit (1 point), killing an enemy (2? points), capturing a base (3 points), and evacing a "dead" unit (4 points). So most effective way to grind them is to go to skirmish 1, clear the map and then proceed to murder your own units and have the potential candidates save the units after you kill them (1 for deploying and 4 for evacing).

Apparently Iron Maiden girl's Perona is a motorbyke which in turn is based upon history's first female Pope (wait? we had one of those!?), Hakka girl's Paeona is an Unidentified Flying Necronomicon, and Miss Adieu's Performa is the chick in the Three Musketeers stories (at least the dress is nice). I'm going to wait to see their male counterparts' Peronsas get posted just to see if its just the core cast that sticks to the noble thief/outlaw theme or if Carmen was literally the best they could do (also Hakka Girl looks like she should be spraying ink all over the floors and walls and then swimming in it, squid style).
At the moment I believe we are only missing one party member's persona (the unidentified brown haired male). Of the currently known party members 4 have thief or outlaw related personas (Arsene, Captain Kidd, Zorro, and Goemon), one gypsy (Carmen), two people of authority (Johanna and Milady), and one inanimate object (Necronomicon). Since Fox Boy (who has Goemon) is presumably not a "core cast" member and rather the first to join after the first dungeon, I'm going with Carmen was just the best they could come up with.

So I finished replaying VLR and am now hyped up for the ZTD in a month or so. Spent part of Saturday playing Pokken...and I am really bad at this thing. I managed to unlock Mewtwo and might just call it there because going through battles really seems to be more random than anything else as I rarely have any idea of where I messed up (probably does not help that I am bad at fighters).

Not sure what I am going to be playing next. According to Amazon my copy of Valkyria Chronicles Remastered will be getting here Thursday which is also when the first DLC for HWL comes out. Which means I need to figure out something to play for three says.

Get a first gen ps3. Full ps2 backwards compatibility, full psn functionality, all ps3 titles function fine on it. Best of the ps2 and ps3 together.

Good luck finding one that still works...
I'm sure it isn't hard to find one that works, but you are just playing Russian Roulette every time you start up the system at this point. I'm on my third original PS3. First one died after five+ years, sent it in to Sony, got a refurbished unit, and then the refurbished one died in under a year. Repeated, and I kind of avoid using the second refurbished because I know it will probably die within a few months if I ever try and use it.

I went a little overboard with my castle in Fire Emblem Fates. I think, no, I know, I have the best one in my region now. Which doesn't mean much, since this region doesn't officially exist yet. I wonder if my castle will become popular when regular players can actually visit it. I've seen the rewards go all the way up to 9999 points, how many points will I gather before I get bored?
So what makes your castle the "best." Do you mean best layout? Most difficult to complete? Perfect in every regard?
52  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Pokemon Sun & Moon (11/18/2016) on: May 12, 2016, 06:17:06 AM
I'm going to be going with Litten and Sun. Because I always choose the fire starter and always choose the "red" version (except for Diamond and Pearl I guess). I think I will probably also pick up Moon (or get a combo pack) so I can catch all the version exclusive legendaries in premier balls!
53  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The Best and the Worst endings on: May 08, 2016, 05:32:59 PM
To be fair, White Knight Chronicles isn't a bad ending, it is just a bad story (with bad gameplay). Although you forgot about the "true" ending for WKC2. You know where after the main characters beat the uber villain thing, the true big bad shows up and raises a giant castle which the main characters proceed to ignore because it is part of the "final" online dungeon. And so after you trudge through a 70 or something level dungeon, you fight a boosted version of the final boss and when you win...I don't even remember if you get any sort of cutscene or not. Not that anyone can legitimately win anymore since the servers were taken down so the only people capable of winning that fight now are hackers. And now I am remembering how horrible that dungeon was. I will never understand how Level-5 managed to make a game about sentai knights into something this boring. The world of White Knight Chronicles could have produced something amazing, but nope. *sigh*

So far everything does look very pretty. :3 Only complaint I really have now is I'm not a fan of this looking to be Digimon-Persona (from what I see they're in a virtual/digital world since Support Girl typed in on a keyboard to give the party buffs). Dunno why but cyberspace-as-reality just seems so...90's-hokey and out of place in fiction now.
I don't think it is supposed to be taking place in cyberspace. Support girl appears to very likely be hacker (and the intel gatherer for the team), so her gimmick is cutting-edge technology and the like. So she interfaces with her Persona (a UFO?) via the way she is most technology, a keyboard. I mean we've seen the MC summon his persona in the real world before, so I don't think they are going to be limited to a digital world. Would not surprise me if there is a "digital world" element to the dungeon where you recruit hacker girl though.

Side note, totally going to waifu hacker girl. Although I do quite like the iron maiden girl as well.

Beat 999 again last night. Finished getting the sub, safe, and true endings. Managed to get through all of 999's puzzles except two without having to look anything up. The two that I had to look up were what the point of the broom with toilet paper wrapped around it was and the solution for the second to last puzzle in the true route because I was aiming for the wrong thing. Now to go onto my replay of VLR, where I plan to get all the endings again and then I will be ready for ZTD in a month.

What's your type? I'm sure we can find you a only somewhat disappointing good husbando if we know what we're looking for. Personally, I'd recommend the tsundere archer, but I know that's not for everyone.
I'm really not looking for anything. I already got all supports. I was just idly musing about it. Velouria was my "canon" waifu, but that is largely because I like her Red Riding Hood look. >.> For males, if I had to pick one I'm now thinking it would probably be Yukimura, although he isn't available in Revelation. He has one of the (relative) better support chains with female Corrin? Maybe?
57  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New 3DS Fire Emblem Fates on: May 07, 2016, 07:10:27 AM
Well then, recommend me a husbando that's better than Takumi!
Obviously you should go for the best husband, Arthur. FOR JUSTICE!

More seriously, I have no idea who my husband would be if I was a female. The selection really is not good from my perspective. Fuga maybe?

I asked why and they said, people who you think are your best friends just out of blue start these horrible nasty rumors about you and everybody just accepts these rumors as true. I guess this means that Persona 2 is the most realistic JPRG ever made then. They both without hesitation said that they rather live and work in middle of nowhere West Virginia than live in Japan. So moral of the story is, the grass isn't always greener somewhere else.
...how is this different than American school? I know I had a "best friend" that tried this back in fourth grade or something (it didn't work in this instance because everyone else hated him and had known me since we were four). And I have a coworker who has told me about something similar happening to her daughter in middle school because her daughter didn't return the feelings of the star athlete resulting in the star athlete spreading rumors that made everyone hate her (luckily this situation has mostly resolved because the kids apparently realized he is a total creep).

Though it still bothers me how quickly Inuyasha went to crap. It had the potential of being my favorite anime had it not tanked so hard during the second season.
...I have no freaking clue of which arc of the manga corresponds to the second season. Or was that filler? Wait were there filler arcs in the anime? I don't remember. I remember one arc from the anime that I assumed was filler (something involving several bandits that were brought back from the dead by Naraku) which turned out to be in the manga when I later read the manga. Now I can't remember whether there were filler arcs in the anime or not since all the arcs are the exact same thing over and over again. x_x

Rumiko Takahashi's manga are generally all absolutely fantastic, but the anime adaptations are always filler-y.
I haven't read any of her other works, but if Inuyasha is anything to go off of, I'm inclined to say that the animes are only filler-y because the base manga is filler-y. >.>
