I'm actually amazed that this kickstarter actually managed to hit and pass every stretch goal laid out.

Right now I can't think of any other campaign that's done so that didn't actually have stretch goals to begin with.
Off the top of my head Project Eternity and Torment both hit all of their stretch goals. Technically I suppose Order of the Stick reprint drive did also, but that one is sort of cheating because the last goal was moved down a little at the end. I want to say none of the three of them had stretch goals on the Kickstarter on day 1(although they may have had them in mind). Hmm just realized that Project Eternity, Torment, and Mighty Number 9 all got around 4 million. I wonder if that is something of the realistic limit for game Kickstarters at the moment.

I'm surprised they manage to make about $400,000 on the final day like that. Wasn't expecting them to meet the Call stage goal.
Last day tends to be the most funding heavy day of Kickstarters. Sometimes by a lot.

I thought PE's Kickstarter got canned? Unless we're talking about a round two or something. That said, Torment missed its last goal, and I'll take your word on OotS.
No Torment hit the last goal, when you add in all the Paypal donations. Admittedly it took an extra month, but we are getting the last stretch goal.

Hmm seems that Nintendo is cracking down hard on the people who got the game early. Tried looking up the early release screenshots, but I saw nothing on Fennekin's final evolved form. Well I saw an image that was supposed to have artwork for it that was supposedly leaked, but the consensus on the comments seemed to indicate that it was a fake.

I have to say though that Pokémon X seems to be getting the better looking Mega evolutions. That is really tempting me to get X over Y, but I always go for the "red" version. Decisions decisions.

Finished all the storyline of Kingdom Hearts 1.5. Love how 358/2 leads into Kingdom Hearts 2 opening (although it helps that 2 was made first). Running through all the scenes of 358/2 in a short period of time made it work better for me than playing the game itself did.

....wtf was with that braindead scene (I haven't finished 358 Days) where Xion is trying to attack a monster, gets distracted because Roxas calls out, and get hit by the monster...WHAT WERE YOU EXPECTING A MONSTER TO DO IF YOU RAN UP TO IT!?
She was expecting the monster to do that, but she wasn't expecting Roxas to suddenly call out to her. My interpretation from some of what she says in following scenes is:

Code:
She was continuously chasing down the same heartless over and over again trying to release the heart from it without the keyblade but it kept reforming every time she beat it due to her lack of a keyblade. So at this point she was probably just fighting it with muscle memory alone because of how repetitive it was getting. So Roxas calling out to her added something new to the repetitive fight resulting in her losing track in where she was in the fight causing her to get smacked down. Also she was probably freaking tired.

This sounds very meh to me. I mean I love the Record of Agarest War series (for concept more than anything else, although I will call 2 a good game), but most of the rest of the stuff Idea Factory comes out with ranges from meh to crap imo. I mostly get their stuff to support NISA (who I love). If they drop NISA I really am not sure I will be bothering to get their stuff anymore beyond any currently unannounced Record of Agarest War stuff.


I actually think Idea Factory have really improved recently. They always had interesting ideas but unlike similar developers like STING, executed them horribly.
Really? Last Idea Factory game I played was Mugen Souls. Game was freaking horrible. Game before Hyperdimensional Neptunia Mk2 which was meh. One before that was Agarest War 2 which was actually good. My graph of the quality of their games looks like they are going down (although I admit I don't remember if that is actually playing them in release order). I suppose Victory looks alright, but I do not have high hopes for the company at this point.

Am I the only one bothered by the fact that the fifth image has one too many sages/maidens in it?
Yeah second one has one too many also. I was thinking extra one must be Zelda.....but nope fifth image destroys that theory. So now we must have a fourth Legend of Zelda timeline where a seventh sage joins up following Links defeat in OoT.....for some reason. *shrug*

Maybe they can start localizing SMT and other Atlus titles when Sega inevitably axes Atlus USA and/or folds them into SoA. :v

No, the localization business just collapses and we get nothing but Call of Duty and Madden Wars.
This would actually get me to learn Japanese and start importing.

You know, I really do like Reverse Rebirth even if it does have the stupid card game as part of it. Sort of wish they had kept Riku as he was at the end
Code:
as walking the path of twilight to dawn
rather than changing direction on his character about three more times. Really feels to me like they had no freaking idea of what to do with him after KH1.

On an unrelated note, I've been thinking about KH3 and I really hope that at at least one point in the game,
Code:
Sora weilds at least four keyblades. I mean this point it has been revealed that Sora has effectively absorbed three other Keyblade maters(even if two of them were basically him) and they seem to be going the route of resurrecting all of them(which will be all kinds of fun when Xion, Roxas, and Namine all are reborn, I see a cat fight incoming), so yeah I want to Sora weild four keyblades the way he wields two in Final Form because that would be awesome and make total sense with the direction they seem to be going.
669  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: So... Board Games? on: September 29, 2013, 08:52:20 AM
So has anyone gotten the Firefly board game? I've read mixed reviews of it. I'm hopefully getting it this week as part of my monthly comic shipment, so I'm curious as to thoughts (assuming people have tried it).

Oh geez, I don't think I could ever stand taking Staff and giving up Sword. I always do the exact opposite. I just like the ability spread on Sword too much. I mean sure you end up with 2 extra MP, but I basically only use MP for cure so meh. Side note, if you have a hard time on Cerberus again just go to Deep Jungle, level up a bit and then come back. For some reason or another I had a hard time with him on my normal play through and had to do that in order to get past him. Actually I think him and Trickmaster might be the only bosses in the game that I had any real trouble with. Primarily because I didn't have all of my "staple" abilities.

Changing subjects to CoM, how the hell do enemy cards work. I put them in my decks but I never see them in battle. Do they just auto apply?

Also on the topic of CoM, 100 Acre Woods trophies are horrible. Or at least the vegetable one is and I assume the others are as well. High score is 47 out of the 150 I need. Yay. >.>

Me and some of my friends from work were heading back from lunch when someone pulled this up on their phone. General consensus was that it looked stupid and based on the description it has too many freaking buttons for its own good. I believe that at least two of us laughed out loud upon seeing it and its "speaker" control pads.

As long as it doesn't end up in an N64 situation where most of the buttons either get ignored or the game requires you to have a third arm jutting out from the lower middle region of your torso then I can learn.
Bah, N64 was fine as long as you had large hands. Middle prong was king of pointless in that situation though. >.>
672  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: compulsive need to finish games on: September 28, 2013, 07:20:53 AM
I'm obsessive about beating games for the most part. Well JRPGs at least. Also aim for 100%ing them. Off the top of my head I can only think of two games that I started and did not complete. Baten Kaito: Orgins because I hated having only one deck and I ended up skipping battles and got to the end unable to win boss fights. >.> Second was Last Rebellion, where I played for 5 minutes and then said no. Eventually I'll probably play them again using cheats just to get them off my list, but I've got a substantial backlog to work through first. Oh and Diablo III, but I'm going to get around to that one sooner or later.....I think.
673  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Gust making a spiritual successor to Ar Tonelico: Ar no Surge on: September 25, 2013, 07:02:39 AM
I'm excited.

And by excited I mean incredibly thrilled.
I second this. I love Ar Tonelico, even 3. Heck 1 is my favorite game. A spiritual successor should hopefully be amazing.

So I finally got around to watching Dragonball GT.
About as good as I expected =/

Totally on deck for me after rewatching all 291 eps of Dragon Ball Z this summer.

The first half is descent, the rest is just so bad... You can feel that they had no plot and no idea.
Everyone but Goku is even more useless than usual. The power levels make no sense at all. The ending is pure shit too.
All in all, watch the latest Goku VS God movie. It's much better than this shit.
.....Wow I misread the context of this somehow and initially thought you were talking about DBZ. And yet the majority of the comments still work. >.> *runs away and hides in a bunker*

Ok, went on a bender and watched all of SAO, and I enjoyed it. The whole theme of fairies and stuff for the second half wasn't really that odd, and the love story was very Lunar to me, minus the goddess trying to destroy all mankind and such. I just felt that it was very quick, and the in game ending battle was meh, though I secretly wished horrors upon the asshole for what he did to "Titania" (spoiler evasion). My only REAL gripe was...

Code:
The fucking incestual thing with his sister/cousin was way creepy on her behalf. Not something tbat needed to be there AT ALL.

I really hope they make another season of it. I would watch it in a heartbeat.
I have no idea of what SAO is, so when I first read the post I assumed Stand-Along Complex. Needless to say the rest of the post was very hilarious to me in that context. :p
