I didn't play Shining Force 1 or 2 until after I had played SF3. I've beaten SF1 several times, but for some reason I never got around to beating SF2...heh. What the hell happened to the series after that, anyway? I never really kept track, I just know there's been some pretty mediocre titles since then. =P

In sky today, I saw my first WLegs drop. It's also the first time I lose at the lot- I should probably get used to this considering how many friggin' people want the thing. Combined with how rarely we do Kirin, it ain't happening. :P

With some help from the LS, we did Diabolos today. Technically the following screenshots have spoilers, but I don't think it's anything that really matters.

So anyway knowing Tenzen's sheath has the magical ability to detect that super evil energy flowing around, naturally we walk right into the room without any caution right after we see the thing shake like a dowsing rod made of vibrators.

So we meet with the most famous of Batman villains...the Manbat. Well, he's pretty famous.

So we stand there and load our weapons and supplies while he sits there whistling quietly to himself.

After we start battling, he retaliates by continuing to stand there and whistling quietly to himself.

So we beat the guy and he explains he causes nightmares for small children like Prishe by showing them his enormous chin.

Anyway, Tenzen brings out his magic armband! That should keep that nasty nightmare monster from swallowin' anyone else up!

So we return to the city and Chapter 4 begins.

Mr. Miagi tells us we're not allowed to go meet Bahamut...but hey, we're the main characters. We're supposed to do everything. God forbid they spare a few men to actually help us brave the various evil monsters and the mysterious force threatening the entire world. THIS AND MORE ON NEXT WEEK'S EPISODE.

How is that different from logging onto WoW just to check your Auction house sales? Plenty of people do that, too.

Some people spend lots of time and have fun customizing their Facebook stuff the same way we have fun customizing our MMORPG characters.

Yeah it is.

This is a good page for basic questions like that.

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.
1792  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: October 14, 2008, 09:36:42 AM
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).
1793  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?
1794  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: StarCraft II: How to completely rob Korea in three easy steps. on: October 14, 2008, 07:43:43 AM
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.
1795  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: October 13, 2008, 12:26:01 PM
*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.
1796  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).
1797  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: October 13, 2008, 10:03:34 AM
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.

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!
