You talk like Lulu's Fury overdrive is useful.

I'm confused about that...
(1a) Why does it do so little damage
(1b) Who thought that was a good idea?
(2) Why the fuck can't I do more than 8 rotations???

It's actually really good late game. Break damage limit with max magic on ultima and you are doing massive damage 8 times. Her, Wakka, and Tidus have the best overdrives for damage.

Anyway, I'm on the last monster I need to have 5 of every one in the arena for the 99 Dark Matters... and I can't seem to get them to pop up. It is Varuna in the Omega Dungeons. I have found 3 after hours of grinding in there... so much so that I have caught 10 of every other enemy in there before I found a 4th one of Varuna. WTF Square.

Did anyone else choose the expert sphere grid though? Makes it easier to form characters into whatever role you want, unlike the regular sphere grid.

I was too much of a pussy to go a "new and exotic" route.  Plus I figured there wasn't too much point since they all specialize anyways, except for Kimahri.  But...then again, it might help with some of the other glaring character faults I've been getting...HMMMM

I don't like Kimahri, but since you have that 2 on 1 battle I had to sub him in alot. I chose Lulu's path until I got drain. Made that fight a breeze. 600 damage and HP healed a turn.

I like him a bit more now for not being a "snowflake".  I definitely think it sucks hot garbage that his Ronso Rage is only available during the kinda rare Overlimit occasion.  Wtf good is that??  I'd rather spend a ton of MP to use it whenever I want.

I'm more stuck with what to do with Rikku.  Her defence and attack are garbage, is she really just around to steal and throw?  I guess that's not bad... but early/mid game enemies aren't really yielding high rewards.

Kimahri would be a great character if you could use his abilities outside of overdrive, but he can't and he sucks lol. Rikku I sent straight through Auron's route when hers was finished. She does about 3,000 damage right now (which sounds good, but when my regular party does 30,000 - 99,999, it's terrible). She really is only good for stealing, and once you get other characters that ability well... yeah I got nothing lol.

Wasted so much time in FFX today. I don't remember it being this difficult to get a No Encounters piece of armor. Started out farming Ghosts in the Cave of the Stolen Fayth, but you get maybe one Ghost every 15 battles. So I started stealing Purifying Salt in the Zanarkand Dome, but that was taking way too long, so I tried to find a Wraith in the Sea of Sorrow with no luck. Ugh.

But at least I made some good progress in Tales of Xillia, so it wasn't a completely wasted day. On the final dungeon at this point, just cleaning up side quests and getting a few more titles in case I decide to play through the game as Jude at some point.

I have not made any no encounters armor whatsoever and have at least 4 with it on there. I got most of them from the Omega Dungeon as drops. Must be bad luck. I have 99 purifying salt now though if I ever wanted to make one myself (which seems pointless).

I'll definitely give Mistwalker another chance, but I refuse to get hyped about one of their games at this point. Got burned twice with Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey.

I'm like 2 weeks behind on my movie reviews so you'll have to bare with me haha

Dallas Buyer's Club -

The performances in this movie are astonishingly good and absolutely worthy of the multiple Academy Awards bestowed upon them. Matthew McConaughey has completely changed my opinion of him the past two years. I used to think he was an overrated "star" who just did Hollywood garbage, but he has found quite the high quality independent film streak of late. It's nice to have Jared Leto back into acting as well. Always thought he was underrated. The movie itself is also absolutely worth a watch thanks to a compelling true story about the HIV/AIDS outbreak of the 1980's and a good portrait of the United States during that time. It is also a revealing look at just how bad the FDA was and continues to be at doing the right thing. The last act is probably the weakest just because we know where this is going, but Dallas Buyer's Club should be viewed by an serious film-goer.

12 Years a Slave -

A worthy best picture winner based on the excellent performances and the importance of the subject matter, but this is not an easy movie to watch. If you can't handle graphic torture scenes, stay far away. There's quite of few of them and they are brutal. I admire that the actors and actresses were willing to put themselves through it. The movie itself is a great redemption story and emotionally compelling (especially the ending), but it can be slow at times. It's not something I would probably want to watch again, but absolutely worth it at least once if you can stomach it. The average film-goer that grabs this for a watch based on its awards will not like it more than likely because it is not a mainstream audience movie, but that is not something that should take away its accomplishments on and off the film.

Frozen -

This was a little simpler than I thought going in based on the trailers I saw. The animation is absolutely gorgeous to behold and the songs, while not on the level of the golden era of Disney films, were solid. The story is predictable, but has a nice message for the little ones of just being yourself and not caring what anyone else thinks. This is an enjoyable film, but I would not put it on the level of a high quality Pixar film and am astonished at how well received it was at the box office. It made over a billion dollars worldwide at the box office! Audiences must have really wanted a blast from the past in the animation world.

SQEX is just gonna keep being SQEX. If you wanna see what happened to SQ then look at Mistwalker.
This.  It's as if all the people begging SE for a traditional RPG and complaining about FFXIII have never heard of Blue Dragon or Lost Odyssey.  The throwback games are there; people are just looking in the wrong places.

Mistwalker's games were pretty disappointingly average JRPG's. Hard to get excited over that. They were playable diversions, but not worth getting an X360 for like they were marketed in Japan. I have more faith in Square Enix than I do in Mistwalker right now... which is saying something.

I don't remember the lips being synched very well in the PS2 version either, but it is more noticeable now because it is in HD and clearer to see. At this point I don't expect Square to do much in that regard. The FFXIII games weren't synched very well either.

Maybe somebody can answer me this not actually condescending question that is going to sound condescending... why max out every asterisk? You can only have 2 job abilities at once and like 2-4 skills depending on how they cost. I maxed out like 5 useful asterisks and stopped and beat the game.

"If you focus too much on the global aspect, you might lose sight of who you’re actually making the game for,” explains Matsuda. “For example, if you look back at 2013, we’ve had some home console games made for a global audience that struggled.”

"For the new games we’ll be developing from this point on, while this may sound a bit extreme, we’ve been talking about making them as heavy JRPGs. I believe that way, we can better focus on our target, which will also bring better results.”

While this doesn't change the games they struggled with that didn't live up to standards, at least they admit it was the wrong idea. Hopefully these next few games redeem them a bit. Bravely Default was a solid start, but it could have been better too.

I honestly don't expect these games anytime soon. We waited forever for FFXII and XIII.

Yeah, I don't feel anything till I see more or get a sure date.


And then we get crushed when it is delayed :)

Blitzball still isn't generating the prizes I want and  my team is getting way over-leveled to the point that I'm not even challenged anymore so I stopped and starting capturing 5 of every creature in every area to get the 99 Dark Matters. Need that ribbon ability to put on my genji shield that already has Break HP Limit, Auto-Phoenix, and Auto-Haste. After that, grinding until I can beat those damn dark aeons so I can finally get Anima and the Magus Sisters... I really hate myself for missing that first destruction sphere.

I feel like as a European it was my duty to warn the Americans of this situation. Mah bad </3

Haha it's more my fault than anything. My friend missed the same destruction sphere and was only 4 hours in and started over because he didn't want to deal with the Dark Aeons before getting Anima and the Magus Sisters.

Mark I think you'll like the elevator scene. It doesn't show much, but it is quite hilarious. I just checked out Spectacular Now too. Must be destiny because it was the first movie I came across when I got to work today haha.
