What a beautiful day!


COUGH HACK AH-CHOO HOOOOOOONK


...Welcome, spring...welcome.

^^^ This...

So I noticed a fellow community members signature was a "Raptr" sig. I got curious and checked into this "Raptr".

I love how it consolidates your gaming status from across multiple platform and profiles. I DO NOT love how I have becoming obsessive about getting my profile up to speed by having to manually add games and hours to my library/profile.

I have spent far more time then I am willing to admit in the last two days getting my Raptr account to somewhat accurately reflect my gaming to date.

This is pointless. This is stupid. This is time consuming. I cannot stop. Help....

I do however want to publicly send my thanks to Blace for inadvertently turning me on to Raptr. I suddenly feel like my achievements are something to be proud of instead some arbitrary measure of some useless agenda that in fact has no real impact on anything.. I do not of course include PSN trophies in that statement, for as we all know PSN trophies are in fact an accurate measure of your self worth after all, but until now I sort of felt it was pointless to get achievements on other consoles/profiles. I now feel my gaming has a great meaning.

Expect my signature to change to the Raptr sig sometime in the year 2020 when I get it up to date.

haha well sorry for getting you addicted. I totally did the same thing when I started it up. Mine is only up to date from when I started gaming again back in late 2012 after taking like a 3 year break. You can feel free to add me as a friend on there.

It's time to stop using 15 year old games as the benchmark for bad voice acting.

Agreed. Voice acting was just starting in videogames. It is much worse when a game has bad voice acting nowadays rather than back then.

So much fun! I'll probably end up starting FFX-2 when I finish off Penance and the Dark Aeons... which is going to take awhile because I only have one ribbon armor and you have to have at least 2 characters with it, but I'm going to do 3 more than likely.

I think you could farm Dark Yojimbo for those (unless you already laid waste on him), or at least something 4 slotted with a high tier passive ability. I didn't have much luck with it myself, though. It kind of sucks how ridiculously expensive the defensive stuff in this game is and how it can be the only thing holding the player back from fighting the super bosses fairly (weapons too, but Celestial Weapons are good enough). I wish it just had something like materia system for the equipment.

Yeah I could farm Dark Yojimbo for them, but even at max accuracy for my characters I still only hit him like 50%. My luck is around 50-60 and needs to be farmed since it is the last stat left unmaxed, but it takes freaking forever to kill a Greater Sphere for the luck spheres and then Earth Eater for the fortune spheres. Mostly because Greater Sphere counters with Ultima every time it gets hit and Earth Eater counters with flare every time its hit... so time consuming. And then there are the times where you get Dark Matter instead of what you want. It makes me want to scream! Need a fast battle button like in Bravely Default.

Being a former reviewer I thought I would help out here. Editor's Choice awards were given out at the reviewer's discretion and mostly meant they thought it was a paragon of the genre we love so much and a must play regardless if you like action rpgs', strategy rpgs etc.. although this wasn't always the case. Ashton not giving Gungnir an editor's choice award from what I read was because he thought strategy RPG buffs would love it, but maybe not people who don't normally play the genre. Makes sense that he didn't give it an editor's choice then.

Little bit of irony here. I bought the Little Mermaid on blu-ray for my fiance when it came out and we watched it and it did not live up to my childhood memories of it. I was actually kind of disappointed. I had not seen it in probably 15 years. She actually didn't like it as much as she remembered either. I don't know what that says about us haha. I actually thought Frozen was better, although certainly overhyped like you guys have mentioned.

My break from Final Fantasy X meant switching to X-2 (what a grand idea).

I got angry with the first battle, but then I started to see where my initial addiction came from.  I actually never beat X-2 (a dead PS2 happened) so it'll be great to go at it again.

I got a bit further in Bravely Default too.
I used a Bravely Second thing to get out of a pinch in one of the boss fights...
Tiz: "You mean you don't have to wait for charge SP?"
BRRR.  Hell, the fact you could BUY SP with *real* money was bad enough, I definitely don't need a game character telling me about it.

I'm loving the boss battles though, the harder they get the more interesting they get.

I was going to start FFX-2 as my break from grinding for end game bosses in FFX, but now that I have the PS4 InFamous Second Son has turned into that game. So much fun! I'll probably end up starting FFX-2 when I finish off Penance and the Dark Aeons... which is going to take awhile because I only have one ribbon armor and you have to have at least 2 characters with it, but I'm going to do 3 more than likely.

Zanmato isn't hard to trigger at all and it only gets more probable the more you use Yojimbo and you can also get a boost with Yuna's overdrive. Truly the most broken thing in FF X. You need to kill Dark Yojimbo more than once without saving in between iirc, making him essentially the hardest boss in the game if he happens to kill off your Yojimbo.

Yep just realized that because I beat him once and saved and just started it back up and had to redo the first battle. Kind of dumb. He killed my Yojimbo this time too.
8  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: April 14, 2014, 09:01:04 PM
So I'm 2/2 on Zanmato now. Tried it on Dark Bahamut and it worked on the first try. WTF? I'm going to try it again on Dark Yojimbo to see if it works. This feels like cheating lol.

Edit: Ok I'm getting freaked out. Either I am the luckiest person in the world or my game is broken because I'm 3/3. Killed Dark Yojimbo on the first try as well.

Depends on your tastes and preferences.  First of all, I'd recommend the Ratchet & Clank HD Trilogy over either of those.  I'll (not) briefly profile all three to give you an idea. 

I was going to say this, but you beat me to it. Great games and the PS3 games and just as fun.

Wow I totally just one-shotted Nemesis with Yojimbo's Zanmato. I was probably going to beat it anyway, but I switched over to him to absorb Nemesis' huge damage move and paid him a couple thousand for fun. So legit haha. Now on to Penance.

Pretty disappointed in this one...

The Wolf of Wall Street -

The Wolf of Wall Street has fantastic lead performances, but Scorsese disappoints with this over indulgent mess. The story rings hollow thanks to completely unlikable characters, a far too lengthy story that is 3 hours long, and an over reliance on sex and drugs to entertain. There's moments of gleeful exuberance, but it gets exhausting after awhile watching these characters go absolutely insane on drugs. I understand that this is a cautionary tale, but they could have cut back at least a little bit. The one positive I see from this is that they allowed all of this craziness without giving it a NC17 rating. There's a ton of nudity and language to go with the drugs and sex and I don't know how they got it through the rating system, but it is a win for anti-censorship. This was definitely my least favorite of the Best Picture nominees this year. I usually love Scorsese, but he went overboard with this film.

Haven't been on most of the weekend because when I came home from work on Saturday my fiance surprised me with a PS4 and Infamous Second Son. I was so stoked! I've only played it for a little while, but the game is fun and the graphics are gorgeous. I really like that Sony added how rare trophies are too. When I get on my PS3 and Vita now it's kind of disappointing that it isn't there. How hard would it be to update that? I like the layout of the menues and stuff on the PS4 alot more than PS3.

Dodged 200 Lightning Bolts in a row AND beat the Chocobo Race while getting 5 treasure chests today. Man those two trophies were nagging at me forever it seemed. All I have left for trophies is maxing out the sphere grid with every character and beating Nemesis & Penance. I think I might try my hand at Nemesis tonight or tomorrow.

Eugh... I don't want to do the five chests....  Is it just me or does that Choco at Remiem change speeds randomly?  Once I barely finished with two chests.  I wouldn't know how to win by getting five; it's too close and the controls start to get fucky when the camera turns.

I'm glad you did the bolts though! :)

With regards to Pierre and Kid:

I thought Kid was the "tomboy" character in the *worst* ways, she drove me nuts.  Extremely minimal clothes and speech that may as well belong to a pirate, bleh.  She doesn't do a thing for me.

Pierre annoys me because these Japanese titles have a stupid and bad habit to create these French-talking, blond, fancy-pant, flamboyant characters for no better reason than a cheap laugh.  

That chocobo definitely changes speeds sometimes it is weird. A couple times it finished before i even got the 5th chest and I was like WTF. Getting 5 chests means you literally have to have a perfect run of not running into any walls and then you barely get past it at the very end. Took a ton of tries.

I did it in Chapter 4, I think I was around level 65.
