Been coming to this website since i was 12 years old (25 now) and i've finally decided to create a forum account although it's looking pretty dead on here :<
Recently discovered the Podcasts and i'm especially enjoying the Retro Encounter episodes! BoFIV is one of my all time favourites, so big shout out to Michael and Alana for those.
Would love to hear you guys tackle either of the Baten Kaitos games!

My point was focused more on Lucius' initial appearance/assumption on him being a Light Mage versus a Staffbot. Especially since Oliver is so strictly a Light Mage it hurts. And yeah, statwise Miccy is the same as every other offensive specced Blue Mage, where she's competing with Linde, Delthea, Lute, Mae to a lesser extent, and I guess Tailtiu, on top of the Blue Mounties, Reinhardt, Olwen and Ursula, whereas Oliver is more 'well-rounded' but still offensively specced enough to compete, which makes him more of a Blarraven tome user where his only competition is Male Robin and he's too well-rounded aside from his inability to take magic worth a shit.

At any rate, I've cleaned up some monthly quests and pulled a 5 star Mathilda from my 12 orbs dumped into the Anti-Horse Banner. Good news is that she's +Res (so Ploys are in), bad news is she's -Atk (which takes a hard -4 point hit and wasn't too good to begin with). This does however leave me with only Clair, Faye and the Whitewing Sisters as the only playable Echoes female units left for me to obtain/raise to 5 stars (unless they someday add in Silk, Tatiana, Rinea, Mila, Nuibaba, Marla or Heste).

The PC collector's edition pisses me off.  The thing costs $149.99 and doesn't even come with a physical copy of the game.  If I'm being asked to spend that kind of money on a collector's edition, giving me a code to download a copy as opposed to a physical copy is a massive turn off.  I will definitely not be buying this.  As far as I'm concerned, the collector's edition is a waste of both money and the resources to manufacture it.

So I finally got to watching Pop Team Epic episode 1.
I think I liked it. It's weird...

Watch episode 1 to see if you like it. There's a couple of RPG jokes in episode 1.

If you need that extra nudge:

What? More?

EDIT: Interesting... In the French segment, one of the VA is Yugo from Wakfu (

Mostly I play JRPGs, AssCreed, maybe some platformers and "art games" here and there. I also try to hunt trophies in games I get, but I don't get games for their trophies. Just a bit of a completion thing, unless it's insane. I'm willing to add people who share these interest and maybe likes a good dose of weeb stuff (just say you're from RPGfan).

Trying to boost my ps3 completion rates to hopefully move on from the console someday, so I'm attempting Atelier Shallie again. The objectives of this game are so messed up and the motivation hasn't moved anywhere in 5 chapters. Combat is okay, alchemy is simplified but works, moe factor is still lacking. Might also try Resonance of Fate. Or I did already beat it, but seems the platinum is very doable on my file. Just some cleanup and a quick NG+ run should do it. I kind of regret being so jumpy on games in the past gen. I think it's part of the reason why I felt games didn't feel the same as when I tried to have max'd save files in the old days. Oh well...

Also finished Crash 2&3 gold relic runs (with a few platinums). I feel slightly accomplished, but the first game is the one with the truly hard ones. I think I'll get the Stormy Ascent DLC level and see if getting the relic there is more realistic than the bridge levels or Sunset Vista.

As for Oblivion, the world was certainly made a lot more boring than the lore descriptions and books in Morrowind made it out to be. Of course, the same thing happened with Skyrim and it will most likely also happen in the next game.

I tried the original Elder Scrolls and wasn't a fan. Don't care much for classic Western RPGs.

- TES IV: Oblivion

I played Oblivion for the first time this past summer. I enjoyed my time completing the Thieves' Guild and Dark Brotherhood quest lines (the latter requires you to do much "darker" things than the DB quest line in Skyrim). After that, I did a bit of the main quest (to the point where the gates/portals start popping up everywhere). After completing a few of those, I got bored with the game almost immediately. Like you said: There's just too much sameness throughout it all. I would rather it be a smaller world, filled with more varied things.
