Wow, that is literally the last thing I wanted to hear after recently (finally) picking up my XBC save and almost finishing the game. Guild quests?

The more they talk about Xenoblade X, the more it sounds like an entire game full of the worst part of XBC, the fetch quests. I am so excited for this on the one hand, but the idea of it being full of the kinds of things I hate in Skyrim/AC/every AAA game does not exactly set my loins aflame.

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...

It's like they took a housewife from West Virginia and told her to rant in front of a mic

Sadly, we have to settle for a housewife from Alaska ranting in front of a mic instead.

At any rate, we've already seen what its like to have someone who isn't all that suited for a position of leadership put in charge of a first world country. It does not end well.

But yeah, in regards to that video, I agree with The Daily Show on the thought that the whole conference was entirely a Fox News Correspondent Auditions Reel.

SRR and DF were pleasant surprises, no doubt. I'm looking forward to it too, though I prefer to set my expectations to normal levels haha. Since they won't target the tablet market (for now) HBS might be able to, at very least, tweak the interface. Other than that, I hope they keep the game compact, "fat-free": no huge dungeons, trash battles, fetch quests and so on.

Yeah, it seems like they are committed to going for a quality over quantity approach.  There's the fact that they have (conservatively) estimated SR:HK's play time as 12 hours, rather than promising an "epic" CRPG.   In the comments, Mitch from HBS has said they're really hoping to continue to improve upon the choice & consequence aspect of the game as well. 

The campaign now has 20 days left and is over $700K.  Lots of great stretch goals have been unlocked: aside from additional companions & their person quests, there's going to be improvements to the interface, improved and more varied Cyberware and magic, and a revamp and improvement of the Matrix segments.

Kent's thing is having more Skill and Speed compared to Sain's raw Strength much like how Shadow Dragon's Abel has more Skill and Speed compared to Kain's Strength. The problem though is that more Strength is always good versus how more Speed is good up until you're doubling everybody and their brother, at which point its only good for dodge tanking (and Male Paladin's of the GBA era don't get the Spd cap necessary to truly become speed demons like Sword Masters can). Kent's (and the rest of the Green Christmas Knight archetype) biggest problem though is that they favor Skill over Speed (and everything else) and Skill is only useful up to the point where you can consistently hit enemies with Javelins or Hand Axes, at which point it becomes a dump stat (unless there's a Skill based activation Skill involved or the character is a Sword Master with iffy Strength and a bunch of Killing Edges), and because of this their Speed doesn't take off well enough to justify their lackluster Strength. Kent comes off as the mature one because he can use Javelins at base.

That said, none of FE7's Paladins are all that great. They either have Con issues, Growth issues (Lowen favors Defense over the other Cavs like a Male Sword Master favors Defense over a Female Sword Master; meaning that all of his growths are mediocre to bad) or is of the Jegan archetype (you can 'use' Marcus if you stick to feeding him Boss Kills early on since Bosses are worth a shitload of experience early on and low level characters can only squeeze 100 exp from a Boss Kill).

More details on the game. Highlights include:

Unions and the more open world style plot, along with the customizable MC, seems to infer a more Skyrim Chronicles X. At least it sounds like there will be a good variance on missions/side-quests, plot-based and not (then again, XBC was a largely linear game that would occasionally drop a plot-based quest onto the player's lap at certain points).

Some of the Unions include: One that is in charge of digging through the numerous giant steaming mounds of shit lying all over the place, one that is in charge of blowing up Mako Reactors, one that involves exterminating protesters, one that involves exploring a strange new world, one that involves seeking out new life and new civilizations, and one that involves beating the shit out of them, one that's in charge of the lost and found; one that's involved in cleaning the filthy streets of Neo Los Angeles of crime, corruption, stray cats and Nopon Drug Cartels/Crime Syndicates; and one that will get featured on this week's episode of Top (Xeno) Gear.

The game being five times larger is nice (hopefully your run speed will increase by more than just 34% over the course of the game).

You can run with a party of four (its no Party of Five, but as long as we get to headquarter at Postal Zip Address 90210 over at Neo Beverly Hills, then we should be good).

And there's a shitload of music (over 90 tracks, all of which will sound exactly like Sawano's other bombastic stuff from shit like Gundam Unicorn and Gigantic Formula; I kid (hopefully)).

Marshawn "Beastmode" Lynch had custom cleats made:

And, his limited edition Skittles are back just in time for this weekend's Super Bowl.

Devoted "12th man" fan makes a tribute to Lynch with a portrait of Lynch made out of Skittles.

Finally, he gives a press conference on behalf of Skittles this week answering serious questions*:

Not to be confused with a Seahawks fan, but this guy is pretty funny off and on the field, heh.

Sorry I took the non-bait.  I'm such a mark for this kind of thing...but the rational side of me wants her to win the primary because then Hilary will absolutely SMOKE her in the general. Yet somewhere in the perverse depth of my pysche I REALLY want to know how off the tracks that raisin cake would run this thing if she was ever elected President. It'd almost be a privilege to have a front row seat to that kind of Michael Bay style apocalypse.  (yes, I'm being hyperbolic).

Well i officially screwed myself.

I wasn't paying attention to Yoga chickee requirements. This was folly on my part considering D already brought it up days ago. Went around recruiting. Now I am in the process of leveling twice as many citizens to get her. Suck.

As for the moonbucks special blend I missed it too. HINT: determine enemy that drops it with conspiracy dude. use VR arena... thats my plan at least (haven't tried it yet).
Won't work, Klyde. I don't wanna spoil it, but i'll just say that if you recruit the architect, you can still get the special blend. If you really need to know how (believe me, it took me a while to figure it out) I'll message it to you, but my only hint is you can't kill a SPECIFIC enemy in one shot.
