The Soundroom / Holiday music thread (tis the season)
« Last post by Dincrest on December 09, 2017, 11:46:20 AM »
Xmas/Holiday music.  Some people love it.  Some people hate it.  So let's spread some holiday musical cheer with our favorite yule-time music. 

I was one of the Xmas music haters until my friend Ray did a "Punk Rock Xmas" compilation of wild, weird, wacky, and out there Xmas music.  Here are some of the piece from his compilation that I really like:

"Christmas in Las Vegas" by Richard Cheese

"The Season's Upon Us" by Dropkick Murphys (lyrics kinda NSFW)

"Christmas Party" by Dead Milkmen

"Happy New Year" by Spike Jones and the City Slickers

"Winter Wonderland" by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass

"The Night Santa Went Crazy" by Weird Al

"Oi to the World" by The Vandals

"My Mother Gave Me a Gun for Christmas" by The Pork Dukes (That song amuses me, because the bridge where he sings about a Coca Cola ICBM reminds me of the Pepsi missiles in Project A-Ko)

"Xmas has been X'd" by NOFX

"Credit Crunch Christmas" by Toy Dolls

"Homo Christmas" by Pansy Division (This one is a VERY NSFW song, but hilarious):

"O Come, O Come Emmanuel" by Bad Religion

I'm starting to like the fan interpretation of this VG.

On the left side we have: two obsessed girls ready to murder eachother in the name of their object of obsession, whoever wins, we all lose.

And on the right: just two guys who love their wife, and it's all wholesome and sweet.

Anyway, seals talk. I have a few maxed right now:
- Spd +3 for Takumi. Even with a Brave Bow he has 39 spd without hones/drives/ally support/whatever. He quads everything.
- Brash Assault, which is passed around by units that have desperation but are not quite speedy enough to double everything. Soren used it together with Gronnblade before I got his Gronnraven skillset together. It was the closest I could get to his PoR/RD skills.
- Distant Def is amazing. Soren currently uses it to deal with all those BLyns and Reinhardts.
- Close Def is cool too. My dragons and other tanky units pass it around.
- Hone Speed is really useful. It's usually in the hands of whoever is the Arena bonus unit.

The Defense Seals are so goddamn good that its worth dumping the coins and badges for. Stat+3/5 Seals are also kinda useful for that extra push for things like GHeBs and such. Really, the Great Badges are going to be the main limiting factor since you also need them to promote units to 5 star.

As for my Poprocks and Soda combos, I went and gave Mist Wrathful Staff (since she's my 'other' 5 star Staffbot currently), and Boey an extra +3 Def to make up for his Bane. This enabled me to finally spend on Ephraim who can now double shit (and is about to become a proud recipient of Death Blow 3 to further complete the Blue Infantry Buff Nuke build).

I also wasted 35 Orbs pulling on the Forgeable Weapons banner to no effect (I did get a new Caeda for SI/merge purposes), on top of the 55 Orbs I dumped to pull Shiro with +Def/-HP.

As for my ongoing VG disasters, I started with Catria and am now on Tharja. Once she loses I'm siding with Faye to doom her to Sigurd/Dorcas.

I miss Rhythm Encounter >:(
Is it never coming back?

I hate throwing out overly-official-sounding vague statements, but... we currently don't have any plans to bring it back.

I want to at some point, but it's a logistics issue, so until we have a way to make it work again on a regular basis, it will have to remain on hiatus. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

It boils down to whether or not the idea of superb turn-based combat and character creation trips your trigger and if that is the case then don't hesitate.

That sounds like EXACTLY my kind of game.

My limited experience with EO tells me that it's pretty good about giving the player creative ways to heal with other classes.  But obviously if you skip the traditional "Healer", then it's going to be more difficult, but you do at least get more firepower to try and tip the scales.

Once I wrapped my head around some of the mechanics in Untold, I was surprised how often I could heal through seemingly random actions, especially against mobs.  The Highlander class had some neat skills in this regard.
