Since it was on sale and there was a buy one get one half-off deal I finally picked up two games that I've wanted forever. I got Valkyria Chronicles and Soul Calibur V for $22. Valkyria Chronicles is extremely good, I love the art and gameplay. This game is as good as I thought it would be when it was released, but there was always other stuff in the way. I'm 9 chapters in and it has been tough, but fair. I've only lost one mission (the one with the huge tank with a million guns) and I thought Selvaria as backup was pretty bullshit and unfair, but the rest of it has been great.
That first mission with Selvaria is a bit of a breakpoint.  One of the hardest missions in the game.  When you're in similar situations later you either have an abundance of cover or an equalizer technique of sorts. 

And Darilon, man, hearing you talk about those makes me want to replay DAO again.  I beat that game twice back to back in 2011 (plus Awakening once and DA2 once), but more doesn't sound half-bad. 

So right now I think I'm in the home stretch of Tactics Ogre: Knight of Lodis and I will soon be looking for the next thing to play.  Right now leaning towards XenoBlade Chronicles.

I haven't played FF VII in 10 or 11 years, so this might be the next way I do it.  Once it's on sale.

I'm excited for Danganrompa.  Those were blockbuster PSP games in Japan, and the Danganrompa anime is starting out soon.  My guess is that NISA is also licensing that anime and wants to see if they can create some fans of the series outside of Japan.  I have zero problems with this.

Knight of Lodis is one of the best approximations of Final Fantasy Tactics without playing Final Fantasy Tactics.  I already like it loads better than FFTA.  I might dive right into Let Us Cling Together after I finish. 
456  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Best **Badass** Moments in games on: July 04, 2013, 05:14:55 PM
The respective last stands of more than half of FF IV's main cast.  Even if most of them survive.

FROG. CUTS. MOUNTAIN.

When you see Zack's final moments in Crisis Core just before and during the end credits, it's something really special.  100x better than the same scene playing out in FF VII. 

And that was your Square in the 90s Badass Minute.

Playing more Tactics Ogre Knight of Lodis.  Currently iI'm at a map called Ostorea Castle, which has two consecutive encounters that can't share units. Basically, you ought to have 16 characters around level 20 to challenge the first two stages (eight for each one). I have 13 characters TOTAL, and zero of them are at level 20. Only nine of them are above level 12, with most of those nine in the level 17-19 range. I have some character creation and level grinding to do. Gonna get on that.

I find it unusual that the most AMERICAN game ever was made in Japan.



Fuck yeah

Almost done with inFamous 2.  Gonna wrap up the story, then do some UGC grinding for trophies.  I think I'll 100% this one by tomorrow. 
460  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Index (Atlus' parent company) declared bankruptcy on: June 28, 2013, 01:18:47 PM
...from Index Corp and not Atlus. I'm sure they'll find a buyer soon. Marvelous and Square-Enix both make sense, but I won't place any bets.

Three more days!  My brain is ready....
462  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: June 26, 2013, 07:41:58 AM
I am 37 hours into Okami. I did not expect it to be this long.
It's not a slog exactly, but I'm ready for it to be done.

The endgame starts when you get to the snow country.
I would say that Okami has three central acts (starting area, Imperial province, snow country), and then an endgame where you enter the giant monolith-thing after beating the pair of bosses in the ice temple place.  But whatever. Semantics.  Game took me a good 40-45 hours when I played it last year. 

AnyHOW, still playing inFamous 2 and it's awesome.  Screwing around in Gas Works, still wary about trying UGC missions.  After this I'll either return to Knight of Lodis or fire up another PS3 game.

I think my favorite PS3-exclusive game is inFamous 2.  Is that... weird?  Whatever, this game rules.  This is my third playthrough, and I'm taking care to max out my powers for a few stray trophies.  I will try and do some UGC stuff later as well.  Very early in the Flood Town section (3rd of 4 "chapters" in inFamous 2).

HyperDuck is probably my favorite, but I also have lots of love for Danny Baranowsky. Three boss tracks from Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac:

The Ballad of Lil Slugger
Fast Track to Browntown
Divine Combat

I fucking love HyperDuck SoundWorks. Dust AET and Rain-Slick 4 are both brilliant soundtracks and ou can buy both on their loudr page! I'd link but doing that on my phone is a pain.
