I'm sure we have a ....similar opinion about Asbel.

But holy shit his figure is nice.  Literally, the colour in his eyes is blowing my socks off (I just wonder if it's that vibrant in person)

Not that I want to start a political discussion, but this video is too bizarre not to share:

And this blithering idiot wants to be president...

She sounds drunk.... Yikes.
She's giving brunettes with glasses a bad name.....

This is real cool (and the song is cool too!).  Real time face mapping.

I'm on Chapter 7 of Fire Emblem now. Getting close to where I quit before, and so far I'm convinced that I just had terrible luck last time...this is rediculously easy. I can't understate how long it's been since I have given a Strategy RPG this much attention, and while I had a couple close calls in chapter 5, otherwise I've just been sailing through this. The tutorial is better at explaining things than I remember, too. I know everything it's telling me already, mind you, but if I didn't, it shouldn't have been that hard to understand. I think I just didn't actually the text after a while...

EDIT: Just completed the ex mission after chapter 7. Some more close calls, but overall, I really liked that mission. Kept me on my toes.

The tutorial is really useful especially when you haven't played the game for a while. And even if you've played other Fire Emblem games and are familiar with the series, it is still useful since some of the mechanics vary from game to game as well as some of the classes using different weapons. The only thing I really dislike about it is when you're forced to use Wallace's Knight Crest. Oswin is the better general, but if you want to use Wallace it's best not to promote him in Lyn's mode.

Though it is also nice when you can play Lyn's "Hard Mode" without the tutorials.

Got LD:PotB to start displaying longer dungeon names. Tried to do that with town names but it crashed for various reasons that I could fix but I'm not gonna mess with it cause the payoff would be super limited.

I need to actually /play/ games tonight.

-- edit --

sr2 - Not really in the mood to enjoy games right now. welp.

I never actually finish games so I try to avoid playing stuff that only opens up after you invest time in it.

Not to mention that there is significant time between a game "going gold" (meaning development has finished) and actually releasing for the team to work on DLC, and it's not like this DLC is even out already, it was just announced. 

 I'd rather they use that time to start planning the next game instead of making DLC. Then they can focus on making the next game even better rather than adding side stories to this one.

Unfortunately, there are two problems with this particular DLC. One is the speed in which it was released (its only been a week or two since the game launched and now they have their first story based DLC addressing complaints posted in magazines), and Two is the question of the DLC's quality.

The thing about the first point is more of a question of whether this DLC was planned from the beginning, and if so, under what context (i.e. whether it was meant to be in the game but the game itself had to be released by a deadline or whether this is meant to be a reactionary fix to a problem to the core game itself, of if this is Bandai's usual fare of nickel and dime-ing players); but the second point is far more worrisome since if they're getting it out within less than a month of the game's release and it is meant to react to an issue brought up by the fanbase at large (or at least the part of the fanbase they actually give a shit about), then the quality of the DLC is probably going to be highly questionable (i.e. almost entirely reused assets, an inconsequential plot line, entirely self contained rewards, poor or no balance, barely any content at all (like Arche's bad day in ToP), or a number of other issues), or if not then we're back to the first question of whether this was planned at the start or whether this was an unfortunate clash of priorities or something far scuzzier.

Unfortunately, because this is a Bandai studio, with a bad reputation for handling DLC and because this was posted in a magazine and not on a Twitter account or an official website (that's one hell of a turn around for damage control for anybody). The signs kinda point to this not really being on the level, and the worst case scenario is this turning into a crappy release that not only barely addresses the issue but was planned from the start and essentially turns the 'apology' into a 'slap-in-the-face' to the fanbase.

Edit: Fuck; beaten.

I kind of feel like you are trying to spin this as a negative no matter what the case.  First of all, let's just forget about the idea that this was a reaction to fan complaints entirely because that's completely ludicrous.  As you said this was revealed in a magazine.  It takes time to print and distribute magazines, the stories in them are never going to be just a few days old by the time they hit the news stands.  There simply isn't enough time for this to be a reaction.

So the DLC was planned from the start.  So what?  That's completely normal.  Most companies do that.  Not to mention that there is significant time between a game "going gold" (meaning development has finished) and actually releasing for the team to work on DLC, and it's not like this DLC is even out already, it was just announced.  It doesn't mean the content was cut from the main game (well, maybe it builds off of ideas that were initially cut but that's also normal).  I'm not about to claim the Namco Bandai is above nickel and diming people with DLC (I own Idolmaster 2 for christ sake), but that doesn't mean I have to assuming that everything they touch is automatically evil.  This DLC sounds like an extra story that expands on a character's background and isn't part of the main story (no NPCs standing around saying "I have a quest for you if you would only purchase blah blah blah"...I hate that shit), and on top of that they're releasing it for free.  That is exactly the kind of DLC I would like to see more of.  I seriously can't find anything to complain about there.

Shoveled 2 feet of snow from our drive way for more than 2 hours today. Good workout. I was pleased that our workplace did not break the law and open any of their stores. Good for them. Keep up the swell job! :)

Looking forward to checking how full the inbox will be when I enter work tomorrow morning.
