The Super Robot Taisen series is decent if you can get your hands on it- but its a lot more enjoyable if you watch tons of mecha anime.

Like all other megaman games, it gets pretty easy once you get through them the first time. Well, relatively, anyway.

One thing that's really bothered me about the game is the lack of backgrounds. They claimed they wanted to have some great looking 8-bit graphics...and even though a lot of the new enemies are really cool like the Fire Dragon, the backgrounds are largely solid black, which is something that makes it look kinda lazy. Feels like they just painted it all black so we wouldn't notice the lack of detail.

Yeah, costs quite a bit of gil though (At least for noobies), from 10k-30k I believe, depending on the weekly rank of the nation you wish to transfer to. You also lose your CP (Kind of, your CP is saved on each individual nation, which makes sense).
1654  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Setting computer sound as input on: October 14, 2008, 09:08:37 AM
Every time I start up FRAPs and record sound on the video, it records sounds from the microphone instead of the game/video I am currently watching. It's probably because of the drivers I have installed, but the conexant audio input through a microphone is the only one I can select. Are there any drivers out there to help me directly record sounds from my computer, or anything that can trick my computer into thinking that the computer sounds is the input?

Much the same kind of player Raze is here, I build up a large base and send in the super-troops, and that never works online. Every time I've played a Blizzard RTS online it was under custom maps like TD or DotA.

As long as they keep the story at a good pace, instead of taking a story and stretching it over 30 missions instead of 10, I'm game.

*looks it up*

Oh damn, the newbie training system had a lot more effort put into it than I thought. :P

And with mission 2-3, even if I switch to Windurst, we can do it together as long as we end up going to the cutscenes in the right order. Rank 1 and 2 missions are easily soloable at your level I believe, but 2-3 gets a level 25 cap. All the missions from rank 3 to rank 6 are the same, as I recall.
1657  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: October 13, 2008, 11:02:01 AM
It would work very well in duo/trio situations I would guess, especially if you plan on keep playing with Parn or your friends. Otherwise, people on FFXI are douches when it comes to subjobs.

And I suppose if you plan on playing without raises, you can buy some Reraise Earrings/get reraise scroll with CP if you want some extra insurance.

EDIT: Speaking of all you low level guys, I assume some of you would want to go for rank 3 sometime...I might decide to change nations sometime soon so I can get in on a storyline (Most likely Windurst).

I would recommend SAM/WAR out of those two, if you play MNK the best sub would still be WAR, as DNC is considered to be a solo sub. You can sub DNC all you want solo, but it doesn't have much effectiveness in party play. Also with SAM, its nice to have THF sub as an extra once you hit high levels, but you dont need to worry about that for a long time.



So my chocobo grew to adulthood, with a nice digging beak to make it look different from stable chocobos (Well actually its because I've only been working on mental stats), but nevertheless I retired her, I think I'd rather go for a more exotic color. As we speak, it is making sweet love with a black chocobo. Let's see if I get luckier next time!

Since we had ToD on Dobsonfly, we went again this afternoon (Or evening, if you're in the States). I ended up picking up this thing, though I feel a bit guilty since I ended up being the only guy to lot on it from overflowing of items in the treasure pool.



I've heard that its a great piece, but I didn't know much of what it was good for outside of WSing, so keeping in mind it would bring upon epic rage, I decided to ask the party.

Well time for a decent-sized update.

Recently did the Tour of Gustaberg quest. I had to delevel my BST from level 6 to 5, but I'm glad I got this quest done before I had no chance in hell of doing it.



My chocobo grew to adolescence, and unfortunately it has white tailfeathers, meaning it will grow to be a yellow chocobo. Snore. Someone has supplied me with a black male chococard so perhaps I can breed the two and get an interesting color next time...



Sky this weekend was pretty uneventful, we wanted to do Kirin but we didn't have enough people. I got a shiny new helm for my...uh...level 30 PLD?



Also bought myself a little treat I've wanted for quite some time now:



But the biggest thing that's been happening is CoP. I'm excited as hell because today I did the first mission advancement in CoP i've done in like, a year and a half.



'twas a really tough fight, but honestly it was a lot more annoying just to get there thanks to several members who came along to "help" us decided to randomly pop NMs without saying anything and going off to kill Carmine Dobsonflies. Of course, I suppose I can't complain since I walked away with this little gem:



CoP's story is getting real interesting, personally so far I already find it more interesting than RoZ and ToAU combined. RoZ's story was a snore, and ToAU's was filled with lots of meaningless exposition. This one seems to have more interesting characters and stories for characters we've already grown to know.



Next week: Diabolos!

Just got it today, got through the 8 bosses in about an hour of recorded playtime. Actual playtime was probably more like 2 hours, for the few times I reset the game. Pretty brutal difficulty level, though the bosses are embarrassingly easy. The weapons are actually useful this time around, without being broken like Metal Blade. Jewel Satellite comes pretty close, though.

Great game, definately worth the $10.

As for Roll costume...maybe if Capcom hears all these hopes that people wanted to play as Roll for some dumb reason they'll put it in as a bonus later. :P For now, I guess you should be satisfied playing as her on Powered Up.
1661  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: October 06, 2008, 12:27:51 PM
Well I finally started doing some stuff in CoP with Cymmina, Mercilessturtle and Levit. It's not the mission I'm on, but it was pretty fun.




Piece of cake. Mortal Ray gives you heart attacks when Cursna doesn't land the first time but it turned out fine. :P

Onward to the library!
1662  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Rhapsody port on DS?! on: October 02, 2008, 12:22:07 PM
I'm not sure if it's because I played Rhapsody a long, long time ago, but I remember Cornet being one of the few female characters in a JRPG that I could actually not only tolerate, but find likable. Battle system was irritating if you didn't level up enough, I ended up getting stuck in a dungeon for like an hour and forty-five minutes and then got a GAME OVER. Not fun.
1663  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Oh man, The Simpsons hits the twenty year mark tonight. on: September 30, 2008, 05:26:33 PM
I agree wholeheartedly with everything you say about The Simpsons and their recent episodes, but I still personally prefer them over Family Guy episodes because they're a lot more coherent (which isn't saying a lot), and I guess I probably just have a bias because the characters are just more diverse to begin with. Really, while Family Guy has its good moments, I've never felt that its writing is humor at all- it's just awkwardness to forcibly squeeze laughs out of the audience. ANYBODY could write that. Family Guy's humor is about the same level as the Genre Movie series for me, except Family Guy is actually tolerable because it's on TV rather than making me pay $8 a view.

I still like The Simpsons more even as far as humor goes, but the show hasn't had good, unforced character moments for years, including the movie.
1664  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Need some recommendation for incredibly simple games on: September 30, 2008, 04:29:08 AM
Not sure if this should go in the helper monkey or here, but yeah, I need some really simple games to be able to play with some really small kids. I guess Atari-like games where there's only one button would be the best thing, since they can't seem to figure out games like Megaman or even Mario for that matter. Flashy lights and ADD-high preferred, because you know kids love that stuff.

Also maybe I'll play them if I get brain damage in the next few months I suppose.
1665  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Oh man, The Simpsons hits the twenty year mark tonight. on: September 29, 2008, 04:59:37 PM
I feel that while Family Guy and American Dad both have good moments, I think most people would agree with me that's it's not going to leave a mark anywhere near as big as The Simpsons has. I do think that The Simpsons has become weaker over the years, but I still think its superior to at least those other two shows simply for the characters (Guess Dincrest explains it much better than I do). I haven't seen many American Dad episodes but Family Guy just tends to annoy me.

But on topic, how was the episode? I have no idea if I could even access The Simpsons here outside of DVDs. :P
