I hope you'll forgive my doublepost for this special occasion.

Our Indiegogo campaign is nearing it's last day and has reached over 95%, so it's actually looking not too bad right now!
But to give the last day a bit more spice we decided to start a special event for all of you:

Introducing: THE LAST MINUTE HEROES

They are an old guild in CrossWorlds that is big and notorious for arriving just in the nick of time - to save the day!
And you can become a member of this guild and get your name in the game by donating exactly 13 to our Indiegogo campaign! What's more, you can also win one of several special roles in the game in a raffle that we'll hold at some point after the campaign (next weekend most likely). You can also have said special roles in addition to the advanced perks that you already have!

Best look at the latest campaign update or the blogpost for more details!

And that's it for now. I hope you're into that sort of event and can give us a bit more support for that last stretch.

Compile Heart and Idea Factory have been improving noticeably.  Agarest 2 was surprisingly good.  Mugen Souls Z wins most improved student.  Fairy Fencer F was a step in a more positive direction.  I played and reviewed all 3.

Hyundai cars used to be poorly made tin cans back in the 1980s, but now they're one of the most reliable cars out there, on par with Honda or Toyota.

After recently re-watching .Hack//Roots I might have to start calling you Saburou for your love of analogies.

So I just put down my res for this today. Since it'll be the closest thing to 'Magical Girl the RPG' we ever get (no Sailor Moon SNES doesn't count :-P ) I'm putting a sliver of hope in here. Now everyone recite the JRPG mantra with me.

Please just be average...
    Please just be average...
           Please just be average...

Still not an actual "Magical Girl the JRPG" because you're playing their 'token VN sausage' manager. Also in spite of the purposeful merging of the genres, Idols and Mahou Shoujos are still fundamentally different things. Namely due to the implications that Japan's Idol Industry carries and the more rigid definition of what an Idol is versus what a Mahou Shoujo could be. BTW, would the Saturn or GameBoy Magic Knight Rayearth games count as "Magical Girl the JRPG"?

That said, I've heard nothing extraordinary about the game other than that it's nice looking but be prepared to spend large quantities of time in the same large areas. It also features a costume break feature that, ironically for once, is played up as almost entirely negative (unless you're looking for some kind of Hard Modo), at least, that's what it seems like given the complete lack of visual coverage of such a mechanic.

Enslaved - One Thousand Years of Rain

The new Enslaved album doesn't ring all my bells like "RITTIR" did, but I definitely put this song up there as one of their best.

Ex Machina

Pretty much what I expected, an Outer Limits-ish episode stretched over the better part of 2 hours that wishes it was something deep and profound like 2001 or Blade Runner, but comes off more as something that either TNT or AMC would produce (not enough CGI monsters and the actors/actresses weren't nearly as washed up as a Syfy production) if they had a Hollywood production budget and didn't have the constraints of basic cable.

Highlight of the movie was the fanservice for the men, and a bit of manservice for the ladies. And by fan/manservice, I mean shirtless scenes from the one man, and multiple top to bottom full nudity from the ladies.

Runner-up was the dance scene, the bad guy may have been one nefarious laugh away from classic evil mad scientist, but the guy playing him knew how to bust a groove (as well as the lady backing him up).

Rest of the movie was throughly uneventful until the last half an hour where it turning into a "No! It is I, who is behind you!" off with a dash of "Just as planned!" sprinkled on top. Also, whoever was responsible for the audio sucked. Full stop. Wear Earplugs or Mute and Close Caption if you're renting.

I was more leaning towards Square Enix maybe looking into better copyright protection for obvious (poor) knockoffs of thier intellectual material. But that does make sense too.

Haha, if you can't copyright or patent the entire premise of your game (e.g minecraft), I'm guessing you can't do it with impractical fantasy weapons either!

Pretty much what Klutz said. Compile Heart has mechanically improved by leaps and bounds over the past several years. In terms of story and characters...eh. They lean far too hard on cliches and running gags. It doesn't work for multiple game series like Neptunia because they start becoming carbon copies and 'inoffensively bland' isn't a flavor you want to swallow again and again and again. But for solo title projects it can be passable.

I had no idea what this was, but upon googling it I saw Compile Heart.
Not a good sign...

Compile Heart hasn't been so bad lately. They do have a certain flavor that folks are either a fan of or not, but I'm looking forward to this one. Mostly because it will be the first PS4 game I get that wasn't originally made for another system. Not that I'm expecting it to take full advantage of the hardware or anything like that.

Sylvalum - Ice Country


I believe that's supposed to be white sand. The huge lack of reflective surfaces certainly points in that direction.
