Whee, rewatching Gundam 00 for like the fourth time. Still love it.

Ninja Edit: And I don't recognize my Disguya (probably from not having played a Disgaea since the original on the PS2).
You are a hero....or was it dark hero? Maybe Prinny ranger? That's the general gist of the class at least, I forget its proper name.

Actually.. anyone understands what is meant by:
- Rogues will now have access to use bows.

I mean I could use a bow in DA:O and DA2 on my rogue and there were skills for them too.
I think that maybe you had to take the first bow skill as a rogue before you had access to using the bow? Alternatively it might be referring to companion rogues (excluding Varric since I am sure he will exclusively use Bianca)?

The definition I work with for RPGs is essentially any game that has mechanics primarily descended tabletop RPGs. RPG for me is term that describes mechanics and nothing else. Visual novels and graphic adventure games are not (at least as a rule) RPGs. I have no problem that they are covered here since there is overlap in audiences. Same for Zelda (which is a classic action adventure series). If I were to sum up what makes a game an RPG, I would have to say that it is any game where combat is primarily determined by stats which can upgraded through character progression.

Although I admit that I am probably inconsistent in my application of that since you could easily argue that Dynasty Warriors games fit under that definition and I tend not to consider them RPGs. I'm not sure what the nuanced distinction is there, maybe it has to do with the non-continuous mission nature of Dynasty Warriors game. I dunno.

Are you enjoying it? I've been thinking of picking it up, especially since it has Crossbone Gundam (albeit as DLC...).
Well at this point, I have already finished all the main missions, and just have a bunch of grinding left. I enjoyed story mode and ultimate mode. Mechanically I would say that is the best DWG so far. However the AI for allies is worthless. It is very rare that they will contribute anything of value (oddly they are most effective in levels where you want them to be ineffective so you can grind your kill count). Also found enemy guerilla units to get annoying since 90% of levels have a protect field A requirement and your fields are powerless to them. But still I had fun with the game, I thought the addition of ships/carriers to battles was great and the ability to control mobile armors is awesome.....just be prepared to have to act as a one man army in most stages.

Preordered! Yes!

Not going to lie, I do not get the idea of dressing up Pikachu....actually honestly I don't get Pikachu's appeal at all.

If Emma isn't considered part of Zeta Gundam's main cast, then I don't know what to tell you. -_-

Also Allenby was totally a part of the Shuffle Alliance (though yes she was totally sideliner material at best, but she still had her own Gundam, even if it was literally giant robot Sailor Scout).
There is also Roux who piloted the Zeta in Double Zeta (and I think she piloted the Double Zeta on occasion when Judau needed the Zeta for whatever reason).

Blowing shit up in Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn. Was working on getting all of the medals, but the missions requiring specific suits have convinced me to just unlock all the suits first instead.

Huh, wonder if the Imprisoned is going to fight like Mobile Armors in DWG.....Also wonder if he will be controllable like MAs are in DWGR.

I've been looking harder than most, tbh. I hated Eureka Seven (despite doing a lot of things I normally praise with Mecha, it doesn't do them in a way I enjoy and does a lot of other things I don't like, too), and had a lot of problems with Code Geass and Gundam 00 as they're pretty much the poster boys for everything wrong with the genre right now. Gurren Lagann is full-on Super Robot and doesn't count towards what I'm talking about. Gundam Build Fighters is a myth.

Only ones I got left to check that might be promising are Macross Frontier and Overman King Gainer, but I've heard a lot of complaints about them, so I can't say I'm in any rush to watch them.
Okay, I have to ask what is everything that is wrong with the genre right now? Because I love both Gundam 00 and Code Geass (just rewatched all of Code Geass two weekends ago) and I am curious as to what makes you grumpy about both.

I've only read the manga of that. Let me just say that, assuming the anime follows the manga completely, that series is going to get messed up...well that implies it was at some point not messed up. It will get more messed up in the future.

Sir, you were NOT lying. This series gets more twisted the further it goes for sure. I'm only 14 eps in but I sure hope it keeps up this pace. AWESOME series thus far.
All I am going to say is look forward to episode 24 (just skimmed through the episode list) that is when the most iconic scene of the series should occur. Also do not watch the OVA, it has the last chapter of the series in it, but the series works fine without that.

On this date, the app and all associated services will become unusable. This includes In-App Purchase items already purchased and save data.

I can't even find the words on how scummy this is.
And this is the reason why the cloud sucks generally speaking (especially for always on stuff), because your ability to access the cloud is entirely dependent on a company feeling like giving you access.

I've been having a hard time deciding on which three characters I am planning on using as my final group.

WTF?  Is that normally something you decide before you've even started playing the game?
Yes? That's not to say that it can't change when I play the game (which I suppose makes the term final slightly inaccurate), but I will generally go into a game with some kind of idea of which party members will be the ones I drag around the most often. For JRPGs I tend to just plant firmly into my party once I get them. For a game like Dragon Age Inquisition, I will switch them around to manipulate affection (or whatever the equivalent is) until I have everyone maxed out where I want them and then stick with the final party unless I ended up liking someone else more.
675  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Age 3 on: July 05, 2014, 07:48:35 AM
Honestly this batch of characters is less interesting to me than DA2's batch. I've been having a hard time deciding on which three characters I am planning on using as my final group. Right now I am leaning towards Casssandra, Varric, and Dorian with my character as either a Knight Enchanter or a Warrior of some kind (depends on how early you can choose a specialization).
