I think all of them look great except for Anne...although we are still missing the last character. Oh and all party members (except the poor final party member) have had their arcana revealed on the cooperation portion of the official site. No real surprises unless you missed the hints on High Priestess. Currently no reveals yet for Strength (last party member?), Justice (velvet twins?), or any of the previous plot arcana (Fool, Judgment, and World).

I thought we already had the lowdown on all the of the characters Stands Personas before.
Code:
The males have MC's Lupin, followed by Captain Kidd, Goemon and Zorro (wtf?), while the girls had Carmen (really...), the Female Pope, the Alien Starship Necronomicon (huh?) and Three Musketeer's Milady.

Also, isn't the Cat the 'last' character?
Arcana not persona. I mean we knew half of them already  and most of the rest were easy to guess, but we are just now getting some of them now like Goemon=Emperor.

And no the cat is not the last character.
Code:
In fact the cat is the Magician. And I believe that just like all the magicians before her (yes the cat is a her, inevitable sexy human form has yet to be revealed), the cat is your first party member.

The last party member is a detective called Goro Akechi. Unless we have recently got info that I missed, very little is known about him beyond that. His Persona is unknown. His arcana is unknown. Only reason we knew he existed as a party member for a while was because he was included in the DLC costume packs (and his face was covered in the original images for those).

Thanks to the power of friendship and bad writing, for the first time in 20 years Ash Ketchum is advancing to the finals of a Pokemon League. Place your bets now if the writers decide to let the guy win it all or continue teaching kids for decades to come that no matter how hard you try, you'll still be a loser!
Without watching, I am going to go with the safe bet that the finals are interrupted by the evil team and for some reason or another they don't an official rematch.

So just watched the second episode of Danganronpa 2 Despair Arc. It reinforces the fact that Chiaki is the best girl!

Code:
It also paints a giant target circle on her back by making her the class representative. Hopefully she misses that one student council meeting. >.>

I think I know where episode 3 is going to go based on who was introduced at the end of the episode...honestly I had forgotten entirely about her existence till I looked up the name to see if I was supposed to recognize it. >.>

Lol, who gives a fuck?
I dunno. Bleach fans? They supposedly exist...I think?

Attention everyone, this is not a drill. We have an end date for Bleach. I repeat, we have an end date for Bleach! The final chapter will release August 8th (the scanlation will probably drop the 4th or something). This shitty dragged out arc is almost over!

Watching Danganronpa 3 gave me an urge to replay the games (well maybe not AE), so I started replaying DR1 last night.

Also been thinking about why I disliked Nights of Azure, and I think I might be able to explain some of its problems now. So on the story side of things, there are literally only 9 characters in the game. Now I'm pretty sure I have played good games with less (Infamous 2 or Infamous Second Son come to mind), but most of these characters get almost no development. So among these nine characters we have the main two characters, a butler who is kind of cool but gets 5 min of development, two characters that have sidequests which barely give them any development, a cat, a demon that is relevant for 5 min and one post game quest, another demon who is relevant for one post game quest, and the final boss.

The handling of these characters is just generally poor. For example, at chapter 2 in the game you are told that your bosses is sending someone to help you out. Both of the sidequest characters are introduced. You get told that one of them is the sent to help and the other is an imposter, and then that plot thread is completely dropped. Neither of them ever imply that they were sent to help you, and neither of them really help you and neither of them betray you. They are just introduced with a plot thread that is then completely dropped. The only characters that get any sort of development are the main two, and I really didn't care for the klutzy moe love interest. Main character was...not horrible? But she had nothing to really work with.

I'm pretty sure this one's gonna require a second opinion, as, from what I could tell, the game just kinda came and went. Compared to AT3 which was where the AT series finally crossed that line into creepsville, and didn't really justify itself for doing so (at least the fanservice was sorta equal opportunity, kinda).
I'm sure some people would prefer Ar Tonelico 3 to Nights of Azure, but I actually got some joy from Ar Tonelico 3. Only game I feel like I can compare Nights of Azure to in terms of how I feel after playing it is Last Rebellion. Yes I think it is Last Rebellion bad. :(

I read somewhere that the localization in Nights of Azure is so bad that there are times where the game has spoken lines that don't have subtitles at all, and not just battle quotes but actual story moments.
This is a true statement. Whenever there is an "action" cut scene there are no sub titles. Most of these scenes there are no lines so you don't notice, but there are at least two cut scenes where there very clearly are lines being spoken (including the final boss and main character saying...something to each other before the final fight). I have no idea as to whether anything important is being said in those cut scenes.

Unlocalized/unsubtitled cutscene dialogue doesn't bother me that much after having to suffer through SRW:OGSaga's total lack of effort towards the battle banter (so many jokes, lost, like tears in the rain). Still sucks no matter the circumstance though.

Also, while it could be said that some people feel that AT3 is the superior game, others might feel that NoA is the better of the two titles (even if their recent localization policies have been getting closer to their SuperNES era levels of draconian again). It might just be a matter of taste (see also how people can somehow justify buying I am Setsuna F. Seirei/a Gundam! for $40 bux).
I posted that backwards, I meant that I'm sure some will prefer NoA to Ar Tonelico 3. Point remains, that to me NoA is Last Rebellion level bad. I'd probably put NoA above Last Rebellion, but not by much. NoA just did not work for me on any level.

I have the most random conversations come up at my workplace. I was talking with a coworker about working out recently and the conversation went into the topic about how some physical activities can sound super easy but then turn out to be nearly impossible. Specific example was getting up from sitting on the floor without using your hands...which is something I am totally capable of doing. So after demonstrating that I could, I decided to one up myself by seeing if I could do it using one leg (and I totally can). Have since had to demonstrate my ability to do so to multiple people because apparently people can not wrap their heads around this idea. >.>

So just got the true end in Nights of Azure...and at this point I feel like this is easily the worst Gust game I have ever played (yes worse than Ar Tonelico 3). I really can't even explain the why. Just the story and the battle system did not connect with me. I'm actually missing three trophies (besides the platinum), but I dislike the game to the extent where I cannot bring myself to slog through it for those three trophies anymore. >.>

@Din - I wish it helped with the heat, sadly being in a kitchen for 4 hours while every oven and ring is on doesn't make for a comfortable cool evening. xD
...that still sounds better than being outdoors here. Curse you Texas!
73  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: July 24, 2016, 08:53:51 AM
So currently playing Nights of Azure. Got it because I love Gust...but this is really not one of their stronger games. I'm not even sure what it is that I am particularly disliking, but the battle system feels lacking and I don't particularly care about the characters/world. Oh well game is beaten, second post-game boss is beaten, so I just have a fuck ton of grinding to get the platinum left. Yay. >.>

Not sure what I'll be getting to next from my backlog. What choices do I have anyways? Atelier Sophia, Star Ocean 5, finishing platinum in Tales of Zesty, Codename STEAM, Tales of Heart R, Persona Q...well this is going to be an interesting decision when I get to it. x_x

O.O How can you guys hate Minsc? He is one of the great Bioware characters of all time. It is a very rare playthrough where he is not rampaging across the battlefield for me through the entire game!

I prefer my characters logical or cute.
He's neither.

My usual go to is:
- Aerie
- Jaheira
- Viconia
- Imoen
- Anomen (swap for Sarevok later)


Anomen is kind of a bitch but he's so damn powerful.
I think my vanilla party is pretty similar, only trade your paladin (or was he a fighter/cleric?) for Minsc and (if it is completely vanilla) trade your evil party member for....Nadia? I think that is actually my rotating party member slot until ToB. If I have mods installed...things can get insane in terms of party juggling.

There are enough NPCs in the game that you can easily ditch those you don't like.
I usually kill Minsc on the spot when I meet him.

Yeah, I was tempted to do the same. Seems even the PC couldn't stand him anymore. Properly equipped + buffed Viconia is my off tank now and it's working fine so far, should have ditched Minsc sooner.
