76  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Xenoverse, DBZ game or something more? on: February 22, 2015, 07:34:16 AM
I have to admit, the game looks like it could be fun, but I am hesitant to pick it up because I have a good four games dropping in March so not sure I would get around to it anytime soon. >.>

Anyone ever play those old NES DBZ RPGs? Those were weirb,

They're also partially why I have a degree in Russian and when I say partially I mean that's 100% a lifetime of poor decision making but playing Japanese DBZ NES RPGs when I was 10/11ish are what /caused/ that lifetime of poor decision making.

Never played the NES ones. I did however play an SNES DBZ RPG that was card based (I think it was Legend of the Super Saiyan). That one was weird. For example, as I recall you could save Dende and Dende's brother, make them fuse and then fuse them into Piccolo. I don't know if that was actually a good strategy, but I recall doing it.

Honestly, my reaction this news amounts to, "They are still a company?" I really can't recall anything recent from them either good or bad.

Star Ocean The Second Story is a great game. One of my favorite PS1 games. Hope this is not the end for Star Ocean. I still have SO4 to finish on PS3 however.
After finishing SO4, you might just be glad that there are no more games after in fear of how they could make things worse. >.>

Real talk. Does anybody genuinely gets bothered by avatars and/or silent protagonist in RPGs nowdays? I always saw that kind complaint as shallow given the nature of the genre.
It depends on implementation. It tends to work fine for me in JRPGs when it comes up, but when a WRPG tries to do it I just can't develop a connection with the game.


Magatsu-Izanagi was never anything more than a poorly palette swapped Izanagi with veins because...evil? XP

The differences in design between that and P5's are pretty broad IMO. If for nothing else that M-I's just an outright eyesore.
I think those are supposed to be cracks not veins, because the evilness is breaking him apart or something.

And I stand by my statement, he has some elements that are very similar to the general Izanagi design like the high color and the neck....kerchief(?) and I can see some similarities in their head design as well. I'm pretty sure there are elements in the design that would make me not think Izanagi such as the horns that seem like they might be there or the wings, but those are cropped out for the most part in the image. His jacket not being full body is the only element that really distinguishes it from Izanagi that is fully visible....but do to browser sizing most of the time when I look at the image, that is off the browser window so it doesn't enter my mind. XP And it is M-I ove4r regular Izanagi because of the flaming face things which reminds me of the flame or w/e on M-I.

Watched Airplane 2 last night on Amazon Prime Instant Watch. It was alright, somewhat derivative of the first one, but it had some good points in it as well. Although the funniest thing of the night might have been when I was trying to find it in the listings and could not fine it or Airplane 1 under the comedies category, but I could find The Wolf of Wallstreet under comedy. >.>

It'll probably look less so in the game but holy **** the MC's base persona is a scary looking bugger inn'it he? I quite dig it after the rather generic looks of Orpheus and Izanagi. You can actually tell the MC is going to have some depth to him instead of 'generic shonen blank slate' the last two have been (accurately reflected by Orph's and Iza's plainness.)
I dunno based on the picture Mickeymac92 posted, it looks to me like Izanagi....w/e (Idachi's version) with a slight recolor and a hat. Although part of that is because the wings look like they are just background elements due to the framing. I don't dislike it, but it feels a lot like an evilish version of Izanagi to me.

Also totally willing to bet that this MC will end up being a 'shonen blank slate' just as much as the last two. :p

KH Birth By Sleep FM

Did Terra's VA change for the 2.5 HD Remix? I don't remember him sounding so... dull. Really looking forward to Type-0 HD now. I feel like Square could have done a lot better job bringing BbS to the big screen with just a bit more effort, so in comparison Type-0 is going to be phenomenal.

I also feel like nowhere is the signature Kingdom Hearts backwards difficulty curve more prevalent than in this particular game. The system basically makes your character useless until you unlock some more command slots and styles.
He sounded exactly the same to me.

Beat the Delta Episode of Pokémon Omega Ruby last night. Was fun. I found it interesting that they basically outright said that the current gen is taking place in its own timeline separate from the past games. So I guess that means there are three Pokémon timelines now. Wonder if far into the future there will be another revisit to red and green in the Mega Evolution timeline. Guess we'll have to go through D/P and B/W remakes first though.

Mongoosey, I'm loving the FF8 examinations!!

Hyrule Warriors

Holy fucking fun.

Ironically, the fact that Ghirahim and Zant served Ganondork in their respective titles made their individual character plots very weak, make for a fun run playing AS Ganondorf with them two as underlings.

Lana, Link (in all ver. but his normal one), Fi, and Ganon are my favs to play as off the top of my head.

I barely kept together when I played a little then just threw an extra $20 for DLC.  God help me, I don't even know how much actual mileage I'll play out of this game.

I got totally confused during a bonus mission where you're against another character though.  They killed me really quickly (I needed to level up I guess), but how do I get more allies for those missions (it was like 3am and I scrolled through the instructions way too quik D: )

Also, any recommended potions?  I got way too many rupees, so I figure to just blow on weapon/material boosting ones.
I have 0 idea of what you are talking about for the "bonus mission."

As for potions, I heard that the new patch added a potion for materials+ that makes grinding gold materials a lot easier. So use that when you start grinding badges. Then the slots+ one is worth it if you are trying to make a perfect weapon (after you unlock tier 3s). I however have not really ever used potions as I have yet to get around to building a "perfect" weapon or playing since last patch.

^ Those particular missions are more about avoiding attacks than they are about defeating the enemies quickly. If they're the mission type I'm thinking of.

Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix

Made it through the Cave of Remembrance (god that music is beautiful) and gave the first Org XIII Data fight a try.... Yeah. Fuck that. Maybe some time in the distant future, but I don't have time for that nonsense right now
Aw the data fights.....fuck the data card guy. You have to win his BS card game to beat him.

Yeah, I mean not for nothing, isn't he about on par with Captain America strength-wise? They put Hawkeye and Black Widow in and they're both more or less useless after a short while. At least spider man can pick up a fiat....probably.
Hawkeye is an Avenger and that is quite honestly the only thing he is really associated with in comics as far as I can recall. Likewise Black Widow was heavily tied to Avengers to a period in 60s/70s. Looking at the news reports though it seems that with Spiderman he will be making an appearance in Captain America before getting a solo film in 2017.

Nine whats?

But I digress. I wouldn't be terribly surprised if the game involved Friend Slayer, since Agnes is currently fulfilling the role vacated by Airy last game. Also what happens to those other two Musketeers that were formerly considered part of the party? Also also, who's this Emperor Oblivion and where's Ringabel in all of this?

/rhetorical questions.

Nine hells.

Obviously Ringabel is dead...or something. Honestly I really don't care too much about what happened him. Which isn't good since I vaguely recall him being the only character in the first game that I liked. >.>
85  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Second on: February 10, 2015, 06:34:09 AM
After the amount of bullshit the first game put you through, I shouldn't be excited for this.....dammit, I am though...Just a BIT!!

Won't lie, I'm a bit sad Tiz isn't more like how I envisioned him


Why in the nine would you ever think that the pushover Tiz would turn into something like that? O.o

Someone on Facebook suggested "Friend Slayer."
I find it unlikely, but I am now hoping that it is true. Especially if it means we get to kill off Miss Unacceptable.....man I did not realize my hatred for her ran this deep. O.O

I've poked around in adventure mode a little bit. It seems like a nice way to grind, all things considered, but it still feels like grinding. I'm glad that you can just level characters with rupees, but you still have to have rupees to do that so...

I'll probably get the Majora's Mask DLC after I finish Legend Mode.
You should be aware that Adventure Mode is the meat of the game. It is where you unlock 90% of the things in the game. Also all of the released DLCs unlock new maps for Adventure Mode and that is their primary value. So keep that in mind when purchasing DLC. However if you are interested in getting the DLC, the season pass is totally worth it since you get a fairly significant amount of gameplay from each map (assuming you can stand going through that many maps).

Finally got Lana's 3rd Summing Gate weapon. Seriously one of the goofiest weapons ever. ;)
Do you feel the rhythm? :p

If you set your expectations to THIS, at least it can't get any worse, right?
It can always get worse. Just when you think it can't, then the rats come.
88  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Marvel Super-Thread on: February 10, 2015, 06:22:54 AM
Awww I like Andrew Garfield as Spiderman. :(


Now we can see him and his many cross series antics like borrowing a costume and a paper bag from the Fantastic Fou-...oh.

Or maybe we can finally have that Secret Wars movi-....uhn.

Maybe they can do Civil Wa-crap!

Dammit Spiderman! Why does all your good cross overs have to involve the Fantastic Four? At least he can be in Avengers 3 right?
We're getting Civil War in the next Captain America movie. And while I'm sure they could put him in Avengers 3, it would be weird since I believe he has only been an Avenger once for like a year and I believe they are going to be facing Thanos in it.....and he seems extremely under powered to be introduced in that.
89  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Netflix Is Developing a Live-Action ‘Legend of Zelda’ Series on: February 09, 2015, 06:52:20 AM
I don't know what's stopping a western release more, the fact that the villain brings up the Final Solution (as an alternate choice compared to the ongoing child hunts), that some of the ladies on your own team have rather unfortunate tastes in men, the fact that some of the gen 1 characters end up dying some rather gruesome deaths, the question about what happened to the gen 1 characters that didn't die at the end of gen 1, the unfortunate Jealousy mechanic, the question of whether to include the bug that allows gen 2's main character to fall in love with his own (half) sister, the set in stone plot based half-sibling incest, or the lack of a remake (ala the DS games).

And that doesn't even get into Thracia and some of the unfortunate implications that it made ("Say Delmud? How come you can use Beo's Sword when you're Nanna's brother and she's Finn's daughter and also can't use said sword and not because of her class?").

Also congrats on your 11 hundred and 11th post Jimmy.
Ignoring the fact that it would never get a U.S. release without a rerelease (and we know how many rereleased Fire Emblems got western releases to begin with). I think the fact that incest is a plot point would be the element of the game that is the strongest reason why we would never see it. Well that and the fact that the game is so casual with incest. For example, I'm 90% certain that Claude and Sylvia are unknowingly siblings that were separated and they are practically a canon pairing. I was also going to cite Seliph and Ceres, but looking at the wiki that seems to have been a bug.....which is hilarious to me as I recall that I got that by accident my first time through. So instead I guess I'll go with Shanan and his niece. Seriously game of thrones material right here!

I'm going with Send Slayer because it is the second game. I guess Bend Slayer could work also (taking first letter from each word in the title), but I have no idea of what either one could mean. >.>
