So Monday's Shonen Jump, World Trigger was great. The writer has definitely thought out the implications of his setting on the combat strategies that would be appropriate in this world. And that makes the series really stand out to me. I'm very curious as to the invading forces goal now. Part of me seems to think they are after Chika, but that is way too small. I'm sure the new unit will play some role soon.

I'm torn on Bleach this week. On one hand it makes last week less stupid. On the other hand, Rukia once again fails to be useful which is triggering my gender sociology senses. On my foot however, anything that wraps Bleach up faster is good, so getting opportunities to reveal w/e stupid stuff Kubo wants is a good thing as it hopefully means he won't drag the series out later to include it later. So I guess I liked the chapter?

All you need is kill was interesting. Nothing else really worth mentioning in this week's issue.

Whee in chapter 5. I'm thinking I am going to grind my class levels up a bit and then go for the "normal" ending.
663  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: February 16, 2014, 06:26:48 AM
Yeah, they really are. The last one is positively fucked up.

I'd like to note even further, once you hit Chapter 3, the rabbit hole goes even deeper for the Red Mage!

The last page of his Notes mentions Qada and his poison!  He wanted to release it on the city.
Just wait, the big twist is a complete mindfuck. This game is dark for such kiddy looking characters.
The game has certainly has dark moments up to where I am up to right now (chapter 4), but the game also has some serious mood whiplash at times. At one point in the game I believe the events basically went like this (minor spoilers?): Let's get ready for a beauty pageant! -> LITTLE GIRLS MURDERING EACH OTHER! -> Jokes about bikinis that are unacceptable, oh that Ringabel. And my reaction to all of this was O.o da faq? The darkness just loses all of its impact for me because of the mood whiplash.

You know the further I play into this game, the more I'm convinced that the Eternia forces are run by a Captain Planet villain (that or he's secretly Skeletor; what with the whole Eternia region and all). Looting and Polluting indeed.

The thing about the Floria region was that they were systematically abolishing their way of life by killing off the wildlife, especially the worshiped kind, destroying the environment, annexing the religion, and performing the odd bit of human harvesting in conjunction with the Time Mage and Merchant's profiteering and the Salve-maker's experimentation and refinement for something yet to be revealed.

Barbarossa's thing is that he's just an awesome pirate dude out on a cool quest for excellent adventure with his best bud and isn't even going to let a little thing like a decrepit ship, a dead pal, or death get in the way.

Also, I may need to actually buy Phoenix Downs given how many I've had to burn through lately. The Fire Temple boss and the Salve-maker both caused me to eat them like candy.
You know describing the villians in this game as Captain Planet villains describes them perfectly. Well maybe not fire continent, as they were (for the most part) competent. Although I really have to wonder:
How the hell was the swordmaster leading this war with Edea completely unaware while she was training? Seems like something that she should have been aware of prior to meeting him there. Or to be more precise, seems like she should have been there with him at least once.....oh well whatever.
665  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: February 14, 2014, 06:49:46 AM
Anyone else find that the villain's plans make no sense?

Okay wind temple continent, the evil plan is to extort people and force them to labor to make them love progress.....they are going to end up hating the merchant and the king. Why would they ever believe the bile coming from the guy forcing them to work 18 hour days and allows a guy to take all their earnings for basic necessities? He is the source of their suffering.

Water temple continent, we've made a city full of religious nuns into a bunch of teeny boppers who only care about fashion.....okay, I guess that works. Oh and our fashions kill them.....why?

Fire continent seems better so far? Although the pirate seems to have been doing absolutely nothing to anyone, so I'm slightly worried that it is going to get stupid soon.

$598,000... My gawd! Maybe it will continue to pick up steam and we get that VITA port, lol ;)

Haha.....no. The last 48 hour rush was enough to get to the base goal, but odds are in favor of it even hitting the 750k goal are extremely low.
667  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Unsung Story: A Kickstarter by Yasumi Matsuno. on: February 13, 2014, 06:39:52 AM

Now we're looking at a true Yasmat game. Seriously, anybody can do political backstabbings out the ass, but how many can do that while providing a convoluted gameplay mechanic that can be summed up in a single elegant, yet equally convoluted chart.

Too bad it isn't Zodiac themed.
When I first looked at it I thought I saw the symbol of Taurus in there, but nope. Really surprised that it isn't actually.
668  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Unsung Story: A Kickstarter by Yasumi Matsuno. on: February 12, 2014, 06:28:32 AM
So if this Kickstarter doesn't get funded in 3 days... will they go back to the drawing board to develop more gameplay on their own dime and then attempt a relaunch on Kickstarter when their game looks more polished concept wise? Speaking of gameplay, I noticed they posted a Q&A update about gameplay, but sadly with no screenshots of said gameplay. Arg!

I'm not familiar with what typically happens to projects that were close to their goal benchmark but fail to get funded. All I know is that I won't get charged for my pledge if they fail to complete their pledge goal deadline of $600,000. I've supported two Kickstarter projects ("Shovel Knight" and "Shadowgate") in the past year or so and both were funded with release dates coming out this year.

Oh, and that's great that the composer Sakimoto jumped on board despite not landing anywhere near his original stretch goal price.
There is no hard and fast rule for something like this. It all depends on what the project team wants to do, so it could either just go on with the ios development or they could try again. My instinct is that they would want to go again, but that their development time line may not allow it. However it very well may be a moot point as I strongly suspect that they will manage to barely squeak by with the last 4 rush that Kickstarters tend to have. It has already been picking up the past couple of days.

Have you guys actually read the kickstarter page? This kickstarter is just to get the game to other systems besides iOS/Android and maybe add some other extras as well. There is an explanation of the battle system and details on some classes/jobs on that page as well. And yeah, no screenshots, but so what? The game is still in a very early stage of development. The planned releasedate is somewhere in 2015.
Well no screenshots, and for a long time no mock ups, means people become more unsure of what they are pledging for which leads to them being less certain that they are getting something they want which means they are less certain that their pledge is worth their money increasing the chance of them pulling. This project has been horribly mismanaged from the beginning and for several weeks about the only reason to back basically boiled down to you like FFT and have faith this will be just like it. They have added more details recently, but frankly this game looks to me like it is going to be a barely playable mess of needlessly complicated mechanics from what they have revealed so far (especially classes). I'm sure some will love it, but I am very glad I pulled my pledge.

So this was a good week in Shonen Jump. One Piece was excellent, World Trigger was amazing, All You Need is Kill was good, and One-Punch Man was great well.
670  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: February 11, 2014, 07:09:23 AM
Ok, I only seen two types so far... And I gather you can send Nemeses to each other too. Just wondering if anyone got other types yet.

Plus, the update doesn't respawn all the monster locations... I cleared out about 4-5 but only got two new ones today.

I got a third type of Nemeses recently. t is level 70. It is going to kick my ass if I try to fight it anytime soon.
671  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: February 09, 2014, 07:30:29 AM
Have made 0 progress in the plot since yesterday. Instead I've been playing Diablo 3 while micromanaging my village. As a result I now have all shops unlocked with an item shop and an armor shop at level 11......I should probably go visit that king at some point. I'm sure nothing important is going on though, it isn't like the enemy commander was invading while I was dancing on the corpse of the Black Mage commander.
672  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: February 08, 2014, 07:09:24 AM
So I am currently torn on my thoughts about this game (still very early in the game). I see where this plot is going and I love this sort of story or at least one aspect.....on the other hand the dialogue has been not very impressive. I honestly don't like any of the characters at the moment. I guess I can hope that I come to like the characters? Semi-related, Ringabel needs to be burned alive for that horror of a haircut.

Just curious if anyone else's CE from Amazon was bent to hell, or if I'm going to have to request Amazon not send through my local provider because they toss it around.
Mine was bent to hell as well. Well maybe not bent, but it was clearly beaten up. The problem is that they used bubblewrap envelope when the box wasn't sturdy enough to have stuff stacked on it.....which they apparently do with those envelopes so yeah. >.>
673  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: February 07, 2014, 07:25:38 AM
I should be getting this game today.....I still don't know why it is supposed to be good, but I will give it a shot and if it turns out to be what I fear it is then I will be sure to complain endlessly.

Got the NA version:

Was this on the EU release too?  Yay, my education will pay off.

I feel like this image is trying to tell me something but I can't seem to grasp it. Quick! Get me somebody literate!
Damn it, my infinite number of monkeys with keyboards just got sick. Twenty seven blue 19 milk jhsiojhksrhgikrjhngikrjhngikrjmngfv cjklirhgikjhgvnjklcfhnvkl hnifgvhn Shakespeare.
674  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Unsung Story: A Kickstarter by Yasumi Matsuno. on: February 07, 2014, 07:20:23 AM
They've had an update regarding gameplay! They are going to be innovating the TRPG genre for all time with an amazing an amazing innovation called triangles!.....ugh. I am not intrigued at all. Kicktraq seems to indicate that I am not alone in that as at the moment, they are at $100 increase for today and yesterday ($500 gain yesterday and $400 loss at this moment for today). Also it is no longer trending towards completion, which really means nothing as the trend line ignores several factors, but it is still a negative milestone. Glad that there is at least one Kickstarter RPG (Kingdom Come) that I am interestered at the moment which should get funded.

So do they just scrap *everything* it if they can't make the funds in a week's time?
If they don't hit 600k by the end of the campaign then no one gets charged everything and they either develop it only for ios and android or they try again later depending on what they want to do.

Ocarina of Time
Water Temple.  I love the ambiance of this place!!!!!!!!!!
Actually one of my favorite dungeon when you get the main trick if tries.
I also love the Dark Link fight.  His AI is interesting and I love beating the fuck out of him with a sledge hammer.
Eww, I hate the Water Temple. >.> It is just a miserable experience throughout. Mind you it is pretty, but I hate going through it. Dark Link fight is interesting though.
