I actually rather like how they focus a lot on the other members of Soul Society/Ichigo's friends instead of being central to only the main character. The variety spices things up, the problem is how drawn out some fights are and how they constantly switch between fights instead of focusing on one at a time imo.

The only thing I remember from the first FSN anime is this gem:

I had seen that image before watching the anime but it didn't connect that it was from FSN until it actually happened, I laughed my ass off but in context it makes sense what he is trying to say. The way it is written is just hilarious though.

I really enjoyed the original Fate Stay Night(though I didn't find the main character to be all that interesting, I enjoyed Saber's Story) because the "killing games" type of story are really my thing and I thought they did it well enough to keep me interested throughout the whole thing. It had a bit of a slow start but once it got going I had a good time watching it. The first intro also made me feel an incredible sense of nostalgia for some reason, it clicked I guess, it was pleasant basically and it wrapped up in a rather non bullshit/fairly impactful way.

Well SAO -GGO just pulled off the most retarded deus ex machina I've ever seen..Even worse than "power of love". I already thought the series was shit ever since the end of the SAO bit but it keeps getting worse ahaha. I watch it for the more superficial aspects, some of the action scenes are cool and the art/music is pleasant enough for me to somewhat enjoy it.
The plot and characters are ultimately so bad it hurts even if it manages to start out with some interesting premises.. This series could be so good, yet it's kinda bad.. terrible execution and outcomes/conclusions. Like I'm going to drop it now, this was the straw that broke the camel's back as they say. I couldn't even sit through the entire episode

On the subject of Bleach, I started watching the series very recently, like a few weeks ago and I'm skipping all the filler and I'm 20 episodes short of ending the Anime. It has a few pacing issues but I really enjoy the characters, fights and they managed to pull off some decent twists and the villains are actually pretty cool. Characters have enough backstory to them. I like it a lot even with all the typical shounen trappings.

I'm also very excited for Psycho-Pass 2 and the alternative route of Fate Stay/Night. I watched the first Fate/Stay Night in the summer and thought it was a very solid anime, don't know if I should watch Fate/Zero before starting the new series or do both simultaneously.

Holy Crap, Holy Crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just finished DanganRonpa 2.. There was one twist that really made it incredible.
That was some fucked up stuff and I couldn't help but scream with excitement when some revelations were made. This is my favourite type of experience, ones that really shakes things up.

Up until that last chapter I thought it was overall worse than the first game(even though chapter 5 was insanely cool as well) but I knew that it had the potential to surpass the original considering all the mysteries that were up for discovery.

Btw a tip on how upgrading works:

-Organic materials raise the experience x
-Mechanic materials give you tons of experience but don't raise the x as muc

So basically you do organic materials until you get 3x(or is the max 2x I don't remember) and then you dump a bunch of high hitter mechanic materials at once to get a huge amount of exp x3 or whatever the maximum of x is.

Also, it's highly recommended that you don't upgrade too much or at all until the later chapters of the game because you want to save those materials up for your ideal equip setting and it will make your life a whole lot easier for those harder later chapters.

The basics of the True A requirement's to when the game tells you do, you instead dother.

So I should contradict whatever the game tells me.
So if the game tells me to go to this dungeon, I don't and get stuck permanently.
Ahem, forgive my lame attempt at humor but I couldn't help it

I really wanna play Valkyrie Profile but that true ending bullshit always drives me away... I really hate how I would need to replay the entire game if I didn't get it right... And a while ago I tried looking up a guide on how to do it(I had played the game for 2 hours at that point and I was already aware of the "true ending" nonsense) and it was a bunch of arbitrary, convoluted and nonsensical bullet points and I just said "wtf is this shit" and dropped the game like a rock... One day I will just accept that reality, swallow my pride and play with a "true ending faq" by my side.

I actually think the first disc of Xeno 2 is pretty good. It's relatively short and painless.

It's just the second disc where it becomes a slog.

Yeah.. Those battle lengths get out of control.

We didn't decide on anything. Might I suggest another strawpoll from our dear Mongoose.

Well since they couldn't get it to work, they probably decided to "amend" for their theft. It means they are scummy enough to steal it but not enough to sell it for profit if they couldn't get use out of it. Or it might be something else entirely.
Tinfoil hat theory time, huge plot twist. The thief actually reads this forum.

Bigger plot twist.. IT WAS ME,

Dice forever the cheerleader of Aeolus.

i swear you must be a masochist that loves taking on the world.

I love long walks on the beach.

It's kinda funny, you say you had enough of talking about FF with it's fans(?) and whatnot but you seem to constantly engage in bickering with said fans(?), even if you simply say something non comittal, detached, passive agressive, hell even repeating over and over that you "had enough of whatever" is still not exactly comitting to your own words. If truly had enough, you wouldn't even respond at this point.Not holding anything against you here, just making an observation.

For working out Guile's Theme from SF2 should be great.

I don't workout but if I did, I would prob listen to Ys music/battle themes from RPG's and such.
My regular music listening habits include 90% of video game music and 10% of other miscellaneous artists/bands like Michael Jackson, Megadeth and Weird Al(some more but it's totally inconsistent/all over the place and just a couple of handpicked songs I like from each, oh and some anime stuff too.).
29  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: How long to beat an entire series on: October 02, 2014, 10:34:32 AM
This is a nice idea, however a couple of things I think could be polished:
Hmm.. I think the Xenosaga timers are totally inflated. I didn't do any sidequests(except for a few very basic ones in 1/3) but I did explore every nook and cranny, read every single word in the datalogues and watched all the cutscenes and I ended up with these times:
Xenosaga I - 35 hours
Xenosaga II - 24 Hours
Xenosaga III - 35 Hours

In the ff4 complete collection I guess you are including the after years and interlude times because the vanilla game can be beaten in 13-14 hours(all sidequests except post game), at least that was my time for that.

Also isn't Lunar Dragon Song a DS game and not GBA(while we are at it, doesnt that game suck?)?

Also in titles like Nier and Drakengard 3, shouldn't the time to beat include getting all endings or at least a good couple of them(at the very least ending B for Nier and Ending D(even if you can't beat the last boss, the missions leading up to it give you basically half the story) for D3) considering that if you only really get the first ending, you are not really getting the full single player experience, not even close I would argue. It's almost like getting one ending in 999 and calling it quits.
