Is BIS the first Mario & Luigi game you've played?  Because Superstar Saga made me into such a Luigi fan that it's a little bit ridiculous.

Beat Rogue Galaxy earlier. Final set of bosses was... interesting, and kinda out of left field.  Still all kinds of silly plot holes and zero details about the lore in-game.  They refer to your whole party as "humans" quite often when it's five humans, a robot, a blue thing, and an anthropomorphic heavily-muscled Boxer dog.  I won't defend its plot or characters (although I think the designs themselves are appealing in general), but the combat was above-average, the skill, equipment, and loot implementation was excellent, and the variety and depth of sidequests is also excellent.  Not sure if I'm going to continue with optional crap, but it's a possibility.  Fun game, no regrets in playing it. 

Up next, not sure.  Valkyria Chronicles, Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana, Persona 4.  Those three rose to the top of my head first.  If none of my friends are up to anything by 9:30 or so, I'll spend my Saturday night starting up one of those.

You won't have to replay it like 999 - you can jump between spots on the timeline at will once you've beaten the game once, and skip over whole dialog sections instead of just fast-forwarding.

Three movies in three days. Because I hate money.

Saw Looper on Friday. Time travel shenanigans, action sometimes a little predictable, but certainly entertaining start to finish. Favorite film of the weekend.

Saw Argo Ssturday night on a date. Great movie. Tense and exciting during its final scenes, and the parts with the Hollywood guys are hilarious. Bryan Cranston was also great. Good performances all around.

Last night I saw Pitch Perfect with some friends. It's the basic plot framework of a subpar sports movie, but with college a capella groups. A group from my alma mater had a cameo! Plenty of funny lines (Rebel Wilson and the two Asian girls regularly stole scenes) and Anna Kendrick was totally adorable, but as a movie it was only okay overall. Music performances were good, but definitely aimed at Top-40 radio fans.

Totally disagree. RG has way more dungeon corridors and FFXII has more open areas. I'm one of those Monstrr Hunter guys, so I like open areas for combat and thought FFXII's open battlefields were pretty nice most of the time.

The more I play Rogue Galaxy, the more comparisons to Final Fantasy XII I find.  Action battle system

FFXII didn't have an action battle system...
hiu aren't wrong, but FF XII and RG really feel similar in little ways like character movement. I still contend that the two games have several mostly-superficial similarities.

The more I play Rogue Galaxy, the more comparisons to Final Fantasy XII I find.  Action battle system, similar types of environments, lots and lots of loot, etc.  I think that Rogue Galaxy has more interesting and distinctive characters; more constrictive, less interesting stages; and a fun battle system that would've been better with something like FF XII's gambits.  FF XII has more skill selection, but RG's make the characters more unique and both games have totally wacky skill-learning systems.  RG's items and loot system (weapon fusion, revelation flow, factory, et al.) is SO MUCH BETTER than FF XII's rare drops and Bazaar items. 

Bottom line - Rogue Galaxy is totally fun and I'm going to see it through to the end.  Working through the Gladius Towers, going for the third Key Piece.

Whatever, I just want to solve locked-room puzzles and watch anime characters of questionable or erratic moral fiber do some crazy shit.  Zero Escape sounds like the place to be for that.

So, a direct sequel to one of my top ~20ish games of all time? Sure. I'm listening.
475  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward on: October 18, 2012, 06:42:55 AM
If and when I eventually get a Vita, this will be one of the first games I download.  I loved 999 and will totally play Zero Escape.  When I have a system that can play it.

FINALLY got far enough in Rogue Galaxy to be able to change my characters at will.  I can try out Jupis for the first time!  I get to use Zegram again!  Jupis sucks!  Zegram doesn't!

The only KickStarter projects I'm in on are Project Eternity and the OCRemix FF VI project.  This game could be really cool - hopefully I manage to replay Baldur's Gate II and finally play Planescape: Torment before it comes out.

I took a break from Torchlight 2 to hit my PS2 backlog some more.  Rogue Galaxy is pretty good, but it has weird difficulty spikes between chapters.  I need to pay more attention to those lists of beast hunts.

Argo was fucking fantastic.

move on, move up


Yeah, I know.  Still stressing out when I shouldn't be, though. 

I kickstarted for my first time.

They totally needed it, too.  Barely made those funding goals.
I lost my KickStarter virginity on that one too (since then I've also indulged in the OCRemix FF VI album).  You never forget your first time....
