I assume this wasn't meant to be locked or put into some sort of quarantine cause someone used a homophobic slur so I've unlocked it.

Be free my pretties!

Is it weird I wanna tank my rank in League of Legends from Gold to Bronze V just because it looks so fun down there.

Maybe fun wasn't the right word. Amusing perhaps?

Love Live - Let Us Sing Together

Log in tonight.

It's Eri's birthday! +5 Love Gems
We're sorry for the extended maintenance +3 Love Gems

ヽ(^。^)丿

After this event, I can roll honor for my third time with this.
(Also, gratz Dincrest on your SR)

Thanks, man.  That was quite the surprise to stumble upon.  I'm getting so many of the main characters (who have bonus powers and stuff) that my normals are getting phased out.  This is too bad, because I like several normals- both in looks and in their personality profiles when I idol-ize them and max out bonds.  

I LOVED the previous event with the 4-way vs battles.  That was hella fun.

New Leaf - Finally caught some villagers talking to eachother. Also apparently stole a penguin from the guy I got fruit from. SURE HOPE MY IMAGINARY ZEBRA GIRLFRIEND DOESN'T MOVE.

NPC behavior isn't hugely more varied compared to the GC version but it's varied enough that it pretty much DOES address my issue where sometimes the GC version was nothing but hauling items around to return them.

Still I do wish it had balls and the story text from Wild World because /besides that/ it's everything I wanted out of the series to be.

Also I'm going to assume that glassjawsh spent 18 hours without getting to Colony 9 unless he says otherwise.

Also, and doubly apropos to nothing, I think the reason I like the Saints Row games that much is because they capture the adventurous IDGAFishness of the PS2 era.

Also HONKAPOTAMUS is my new favorite thing ever. The only thing /better/ than that is when Ponychan used to censor "sex" to "glazed donuts" no matter what the context was, so homosexuals would become "homoglazed donutals."

That'd be a hell of a feat given that Colony 9 is like 5 goddamn minutes from the starting point of the game and is the single largest and most prominent feature of the region (and can't leave until you advance the plot due to plot reasons). Colony 6 I could believe since that's where the game starts to pick up again, and as I mentioned before, that's where the game stops kidding around with your potential party members and gives you your first good one.

Code:
Also, I believe he mentioned Fiora's death which is kinda hard to have happen outside of Colony 9.

You might be right.

The only character I found 'less useful' was Sharla, btw.  She'd basically come along if I wanted "less of a pain in the ass", but Riki and Shulk tended to do alright for healing and were better at killing things.

Well at least somebody enjoyed it ;).  Maybe I'm too focused on earning rewards and not enough on this 'having fun' thing...

Incidentally, I just hit level 70 and that seems to be the end of the story events and song additions.  At least for now.  So if you're curious how far you need to get to see everything, that's it.

I think I hit Colony 6... around 15? 20? hours although I wasn't doing sidequests in Guar Plains so much as I was just aimlessly herumgefickte.

LoL raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaage

So my team is:
2 Koreans who only speak Korean and because they are 'geniuses' play on the NA server
1 player is AFK
1 player keeps surrendering because LoL isn't fun anymore...

WHAT THE F*** IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE IN THIS GAME

The only character I found 'less useful' was Sharla, btw.  She'd basically come along if I wanted "less of a pain in the ass", but Riki and Shulk tended to do alright for healing and were better at killing things.

Sharla would be better if she didn't always kill your Combos with her almost solid Blue Arts pallet and can't use her Talent Art since it causes her to shut down for the rest of the Combo (and IIRC, while it doesn't completely shut down the Combo when her turn rolls around again, I think she ceases to contribute to the preservation of said Combo which might as well cause it to shut down anyways).

That said, I think the funniest thing I ended up doing with Sharla at the endgame was stacking pretty much every Damage Reduction skill in the game (since she gets like the biggest and most expensive one for free) along with top tier HP, Muscle & Ether Def Up gems to turn her into an even better tank than Reyn (bonus points for her healing arts drawing more aggro more reliably and consistently than Reyn's Talent Art).

Unfortunately, shenanigans aside. Sharla's at her highest relevance during the Bionis' Leg/Colony 6 segment since she's not so reliant on Shulk's Monado Enchant Art and you don't have somebody more interesting to replace her with yet. Beyond that, all she has is her healing which makes fights take longer (thus necessitating the extra healing she brings) and her anti-air qualities which aren't that impressive in Satoral Marsh (due to most airborne enemies in that region being huge fuck off level 75-80+ enemies). It doesn't help that she's pretty useless against Ether based enemies as well (not that that ever really comes up). But by the time you're rolling in Mechon again, you'll be up in Eryth Sea with A Certain Magical Railgun on your team who does everything that Sharla does but better (save for healing which is kind of a waste for her). I guess you can at least use her during the segments where Shulk is literally at his worst (and this particular limitation is why I'm baffled by Smash Bros. For's use of the Monado mk1 for Shulk, given many of his opponents and the constraint it should still be operating on).

God I played Xenoblade so wrong!

I totally relied on Sharla for healing, controlled Dunban more then half the time because I'm way more a "Dunban" than I am a "Shulk", didn't figure out the finer points of crafting until late game and did damn near every sidequest I could as soon as they opened up. No wonder it took me 150 hours to complete.

Looking back, I'm sort of amazed I finished it at all like that to be honest. The last dungeon areas and bosses took me FOREVER!! LoL

XILLIA 2 POST GAME/ Grinding away. 2 elite monsters left, got enough to pay off my debt and making run after run through the EX dungeon. I really need to be done with this soon.

PSN SALE OF THE DEAD/ Bought Dante's inferno bundle for 5.99 because that is too cheap to not buy. I feel like an idiot when I do this. The game really doesn't look too much like anything I'd normally appreciate  but it may be the closest thing I can ever experience to God of War (and enjoy). Something about Kratos always made me feel a strong distaste for God of War. Then again I try to keep an open mind. I ended up with Borderlands 2 on whim thinking I'd hate it and fell head over heels so I try to remain optimistic with impulse purchases anymore.

As I mentioned in my effort post, even the worst characters are functional enough to do things with. Sharla may be the least efficient member of your crew but she's still really useful in long protracted fights against enemies that do a lot of damage (usually some kind of really high level UM with some nasty gimmick that makes tanking it with your face hard to do). Its just that she can't do Combos all that well and those are unfortunately where the big money lies. At least, she'll be fairly useful until you get to the point where your skills and party affinity are high enough to properly pimp your Combo.


And speaking of Xenoblade, my god Shulk. In a game where every other fighter has a goddamn counter move to wreck faces with, your is absolutely sick nasty. And here I thought that it would be Little Mac that'd clear the 4 KO threshold of Cruel Smash. I'm still chugging along otherwise. Unlocking things along the way. But this is still the most dull and boring part of any Smash Bros. game. 100%-ing it.

It may have taken me the better half of a year, but I finally beat Witch and the Hundred Knight! With a Platinum Trophy nonetheless!

Okay, so for the past few months I've only played maybe once or twice a month, and the last twenty hours of gameplay was me just pumping up my levels to prepare for the final boss, but it still took a damn long time to beat the game. And yet my enjoyment of it has not been deterred. The game has plenty of flaws and I don't blame most people for disliking it overall, but I just really had fun with it.

And for reasons I can't even try to explain, Metallia is still one of my favorite characters in a video game. Though the fight with her (to get the trophy) kind of made me wish the game gave you a chance to play as her at least a few times.
