Started playing Ys: Memories of Celceta last night. Game is nice far. I have currently mapped about 8% of the forest. If the game continues at the current rate then it seems like it will be a very quick game (which I guess would be nice since I am going to need to do a second play through on Nightmare for the platinum).

Aeolus you are the prophet of our time.

I bet we see at least a new Mass Effect teaser, which will be in the same vain as the previous three games. Group combat with powers and stuff. My dream game is a star system-hopping detective adventure along the lines of the Asimov Robot series. The codex entries and conversations of the first ME game really built a fascinating universe. It'd be awesome to explore that. But there's no way in hell that happens. It will be interesting to see how they account for the ending of the trilogy though.
I saw a comment from someone in Bioware saying that Shepard wasn't going to be mentioned/important in the game, so I see three possible ways they can handle the ME3 endings. 1. Prequel, 2. Alternate Universe with similar physics, or 3. So Far into the Future that what Happened in 1-3 Doesn't Matter (because synthesis is inevitable or some such BS). I might consider the next Mass Effect if it is 2, but I'm sure it will be 3 with the Leviathan's race as antagonists.

It's funny you mention that, because -
(Shallie spoilers below, not really any other game's):


It looks like Escha is in.  Honestly, it makes no sense for Escha to be in but not Ayesha, but I suppose there's still a possibility of Ayesha as well.  GUST is so strange sometimes.

.....Well that is just confusing and weird.

So, there is apparently a Gamestop exclusive collector's edition with a ton of physical goodies. Took this chance to change my system from PC to PS3 in view of the Dragon Age Keep allowing system transitions now while keeping world states. Also apparently the game is in alpha now. So yay.

So just got the true end (and platinum) for Atelier Escha and Logy last yesterday. Enjoyed the game overall, but the game feels like it is a side story to the Dusk series rather than a proper entry.

To be precise I just sort of feel like Escha and Logy are just never going to be mentioned again. At the true end of Ayesha, she basically decides that she is going to go with Keith to try and fix the world (only vaguely remember the details right now so feel free to call me out if I got this wrong). This sets up what I had assumed would be the central plot of the series, but then that plot line is barely advanced in Escha and Logy as Keith and Ayesha are missing and the only thing that seems to be advanced is freeing the Bumblebee Princess (forgot her actual name) who I assume will make an appearance in the next game. Then at the true end of this game Escha and Logy basically decide to stay put in order to help people. Which isn't a bad goal, but it seems almost certain that they won't be making any appearances in the next game, which is a shame because I really like Logy (part of that is probably that he seems to have been based on Felt from Atelier Iris 2).

So yeah good game, I really liked some of the changes they made to core systems like getting battle items restocked, but I just wish the story was more connected to the overall series I guess.

Just watched Warehouse 13's final system last night. The episode Savage Seduction was one of the most hilarious things I have ever seen. I was laughing my ass off for the entire episode. Ending of the series really was perfect, I don't think there is any other way it could have ended.....although that doesn't mean I am happy to see it go. It was an amazing piece of television, but nothing lasts forever.

Beat Atelier Escha and Logy last night. Game was enjoyable. I really liked how they were able to do two different types of Alchemist and enjoyed how Logy was different from a standard Atelier protagonist. Also I really like the world of this series. I wish we could have seen something of Meruru and Keith though rather than just hearing that they were missing. Oh well there is always next game, onto Escha's route for now!

I looked at that Guide. It was a terrible guide. So I looked at a different one:

I'm referring to the point where you needed a second team to hold off enemies while your team goes in the second route while escorting the Biotic. I picked grunt because we thought "Who better to better to be the meat shield than the designated meat shield? But apparently Grunt's not good for anything on this mission, and I mean [i]anything[/i]. Miranda was the best one for that job, which we found out when we decided to try the mission again this morning. We decided if anybody on this team was expendable, it was Miranda, but much to our chagrin, she has a pretty thick plot shield and won't die on the mission even if she's not loyal. There was even a seen where she's shot liker Grunt was, and she just walks it of like "It's okay, it's just a bullet, I'll be fine." We were so close to happiness, damnit!

There are like a thousand of those guides (and at least one calculator).

You should have said something if you wanted to kill Miranda. I could have told you how to go about it. The guaranteed way to kill off any non-loyal member is to have them escort the survivors or to bring them with you into the final battle. As for Grunt he is extremely useful, but he is a grunt soldier not a commander. Specifically, I believe he is worth the highest amount of points when determining survivors at the very last decision so he helps your squishies survive that part of the mission.

EDIT: Oh yeah! Beat Mass Effect 2! That was even better than the first. That last mission, though:
was there any way to use a distraction without having someone die? I used one of our best characters, Grunt, who we thought could handle anything, and he died...

Distraction? I'm not 100% sure which choice that is referring to. Looking at a Suicide Mission guide, I see three possible choices. 1st Fire Squad, 2nd Fire Squad, and Escort. In none of those scenarios is it a good idea to choose Grunt because he is not a good commander (being maybe two months old tops and all). If you did not choose him to lead but he died in one of those two, then that that means whoever you did choose was a bad choice. For Escort, he would be a distraction only if not selected, which is a good choice, but he shouldn't die unless he isn't loyal so I am assuming that he died in one of the previous two.

Impa is a freaking badass in those screens. I approve.

Watched the season finale of Agents of Shield a few days ago. And overall I would say the series was good despite a weak start. I'll probably watch season 2 whenever it comes out.

Looks like we'll have to like Ike again. At least with his FE10 design, he'll fit his Brawl fighting style better, but Chrom and/or Lucina's chances of getting in as anything more than Assist Trophies are all but shot now (and The Avatar has a better chance of getting in as an Assist than either of them).

This also lines up with my theory, kinda (I was wrong about the order and was not expecting FE10's rerepresentation (since it came out before Brawl, if only by a few months), but considering that Tiki was the first Trophy shown in the April Direct Video, it makes sense that the second FE rep (third if you count Lyn's reconfirming) would be the next to be confirmed). So we're still waiting on a Zelda rep (probably Ganondorf since with Ike's return, its pretty much a case of waiting for the other shoe to drop now), a Kid Icarus rep (possibly Paluenta, though could be anybody from Uprising really), and a Metroid rep (still probably Anthony).
We like Ike!

So I have gotten through two assignments in Atelier Escha and Logy now. Game is fun so far. Timelines are generous which makes it nice to be able to just go through at my own pace.
673  Media / General Games / Re: Zelda Musou on: May 22, 2014, 06:48:47 AM
I like Link's design, but I don't get why they didn't give him the Hylian Shield, unless his weapons are sword and shield as a combo. But even then I'm pretty sure there are enough shields in the series so that they could have given him 4 different existing ones easily. Although I just sort of realized that the Dynasty Warrior weapon progression is going to feel weird on Link since the most likely case seems like it will be the Master Sword being his fourth weapon meaning you won't get it till end game grinding.....and if it isn't his fourth weapon then you'll end up with like 5 Master Swords.....I suppose they could just go with the shield as his "weapon" so that he always has the Master Sword.

Only if he is able to fly.

That said, I am expecting Shia to be playable once she's done getting Hijacked by Ganon.
Yeah Shia will probably be playable. Betting Zelda becomes playable at about the same point. Anyone have any ideas on the surprises? I'm thinking Tingle.

So Monday's issue of Jump:

All You Need is Kill: Nice chapter, I totally know what the surprise at the end is though.
Rita is dead, possibly intentionally letting herself be killed because her presence was causing the loop despite everything else being destroyed last loop

One Piece: Good chapter, my instinct is that Fujitora will be fighting Pica because that I such a good power match up, but I guess we'll see.....I mean Pica is kind of pissed off at Luffy right now.

Naruto: Sakura, why are you here? Also next chapter is the beginning of the Matrix?

World Trigger: An amazing fight possibly one of the best I have seen in manga, chapter of the issue by far. Fight is even more amazing when you consider the fact that there were no main characters involved. It consisted entirely of B-list and C-list characters, and it was completely amazing. When I see a chapter like this, I have to wonder how it can possibly be so low in the rankings. Rise damn it!

Bleach: .....don't give a fudge. Why is this series not dead yet? Oh right we need something to serve as fluff to increase World Trigger's ranking. Good job on failing as a manga then Bleach. I'm sure when this week is ranked you'll successfully manage to rank below World Trigger again! I salute your failure.

Toriko: Meh, no strong feeling.

Seraph of the End: This series has gotten past the problem it had at the beginning of seeming to change concept every other week, but the dialogue is really starting to grate on me. Also this concept of the characters being completely defenseless when using their demons just.....doesn't make combat any more interesting. It makes the entire series about a bunch of glass cannons which is the most boring kind of fight.

Nisekoi: Ugh, standard Nisekoi chapter....so yeah not that good.

Stealth Symphony: I would find this interesting.....if I didn't know there is 0 chance that this won't be the first series on the chopping block next time there is a new series.

Got bored hunting for sixth weapons in Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends (the fact that multiple characters get their weapons on the same stages due to the number of stages kind of makes things extra boring), so I started Atelier Escha and Logy. Too early to have any strong opinions beyond the fact that I like Logy's design.
