For all the people who bandwagoned on the show.
Winter has been coming for 16 fucking years

saw some of the gen-con previews and I'm super hyped for the XCOM board game. It uses a phone app to keep track of rounds and each persons job since each roles gameplay is completely different. Cash and guns 2, Five tribes and abyss also looking pretty good. There seems to be a lot more good board games of licensed properties being produced recently so I have high hopes for the Witcher one and the one based on Black Sails.

Most of the buffs are to skills no one really uses and some of the nerfs wreck peoples builds. I guess it's better for balance but there are some weird changes that I don't know how it'll pan out. Dex no longer gives dodge chance but just straight up armor instead. I'm still only able to do Torment 2-3 right now, hopefully that'll change but mainly excited for legendary gems cause they have interesting powers.

So the gigantic 2.1 patch arrives tomorrow, bringing with it the greater rifts, legendary gems and seasons. A lot of new mechanics to get hyped about with major reworkings of a lot of the classes, I think my monks going to get a lot less tanky since they nerfed the best passive. Anyways, here's the patchnotes for people who care http://us.battle.net/d3/en/blog/14569138/patch-210-ptr-patch-notes-updated-august-13-8-13-2014 . Will probably be grinding keys and riftstones for awhile but when it comes out tomorrow I hope some people will be up for some greater rift runs.

Also, here's some of the dev team goin through all the changes in the patch if you got an hour and a half to spare  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KscEHWUf04c

TLDR=balancing games is hard, I'm definitely a lot more sympathetic after hearing their stories of the challenges involved in trying to make multiple playstyles viable for each class.

Watched The Tunnel, the show that was a British-French collaboration based on a Swedish series which then spawned an American adaptation about the US-Mexico border. It was so good I actually watched the US series too and was impressed, though there were some noticeable plot hole. Both series are really good and they're actually quite different so I suggest people give it a shot, actually considering watching the Swedish original now.
6  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: If I were to watch ONE comedy show... on: August 06, 2014, 09:58:28 AM
I watch a lot of comedies, though more comedy movies and anime than american tv shows. But there are some decent ones depending on your taste. If you like SNL style humor, I consider Brooklyn Nine Nine pretty good, though people seem to either really love that show or hate it. The show Community has really differing levels of quality between seasons for some reason but I think seasons one and 2 were really good. Arrested Development and 30 Rock are also shows to consider. All in all thinking about it, there really haven't been that many american comedy shows.

I'm thinking Super Mario RPG, anything pokemans or megaman battle network as those are all kid-friendly, relatively angst-free experiences and fun too. Not so sure about Earthbound as that mu training scene with Poo scared the hell outta me as a kid.

well we can see what the cast of Persona 3 have been up to since I think they're out of college at this point. From what I can tell with all those scars, Akihikos seems to have been traveling the world fighting bears. Assuming Mitsurus running her families corporation, and don't remember what happened with the rest of the P3 cast. Maybe Junpeis story in the P4A sequel will shed some light on what he's been doin since then.

Also I would welcome just a straight graphics update of the SNES Ogre Battle.

It's called Ogre Battle 64 and it's really awesome.

It's kinda weird, I actually prefer the characters of the SNES one even though the plot of Ogre Battle 64 was a lot better. To be fair, the two games do share quite a few characters.

quite a few Persona games comin out, I am excited for 5 and Dancing all Night but on the fence about Persona Q. Hopefully we'll see some more stuff about 5 later this year. It would be really cool to have a later full Persona game have a crossover of the casts of 3 and 4 like they were doing with the Persona 4 Arena story.

not to make light of his achievement but it's important to note that top 8 this year was made entirely of people who are character specialists and did not change their characters between versions. I'm curious to see how the system changes and character balances shake out next year, I really did think elena was a good enough character that there would be at least one elena in top 8. But the game itself is only a few months old, we'll see how things pan out.

hhhmm...here's a question. Are there any old games or sections of old games that you felt were too ambitious for the graphics technology at the time or would just be a very cool setpiece moment with modern graphics? off the top of my head, the opera scene in FF6, powerups of the Masamune in Chrono Trigger being more than the sword spinning in midair(guess I was just easily impressed as a child, plus Frog theme playing helped),the first crossing the bridge in the original FF, dragon transformations in Breath of Fire 3, opera house scene of original Parasite Eve. Also I would welcome just a straight graphics update of the SNES Ogre Battle.

Me and my friends discussed this for awhile and one of our conclusions is that FF7 would be a very weird game in HD with sections like Cloud crossdressing, the squats, a lot of moments involving heidegger and the TIfa/Scarlet slapfest on top of Junon cannon.

Borrowed SMT 4 from a friend and got like 20 hours into it. Really enjoying the game and fusing stuff but the inability to see your current alignment is kinda annoying. Also, the street pass system is cool in this game but I'll prolly never find another person who has it. Deciding if I wanna get the dlc for app point grinding since you just can't have enough app points.
