    Are there equips? I've noticed that on a menu but couldn't seem to interact with it. With healing items, I thought it said you use them in camp, so I was waiting for the opportunity to camp before realising you just use them any time out of battle.

    Agree with you on forgetting practically everything including Kalas personality!

    Each character has a certain thing they equip, like Gibari has these creel things. It's on the magnus option, but you need to find them as you go along.

    Currently about lv 28, did a thrice boss thing then went and levelled up 3-4 each. 

    It may be slow-ish for you naow, but when the time limit for the first card is 7 seconds, you gotta be fast. Defending is a bit of a bitch as you barely get any time to register your first card and usually the first hit gets through. I think the speed hinders the experience a bit, I'm down with ramping up the pressure, but being shocked into picking a card straight away feels a bit jarring.

    No one likes to go for Kalas, which is a shit when I have a hand full of defence cards and no chance to use them...

  2. I've just got up to the episode where they ended stepping into The Ways, and I'm starting to think I wish I hadn't read the books, because this feels like a massive departure in some pieces. Some I expect to be cut for TV, but other things seem to have been put in for no reason. Suane Sanche was meant to be one of the youngest peeps there, but now she's that old chick (I can't remember the actress but she does the same stuck up role she does in everything else she does), and I certainly don't remember her lezzing it up with Morraine...


    Loial I imagined as much more of a beastman snout like appearance, as to why people keep confusing him with a trolloc, however he just seems to be a tall dude with a big nose - Google has a lot of illustrations have him like that, so this one is on me. They did a terrible job creating this though, slap a potato on his nose, give him big hands and New Rock boots...

    Isn't Netflix mostly full of B level trash? 

    To be honest, Prime Video is way better. I think Netflix is good, but it depends what they have available to watch.

    I've found Prime to be a bit weird in its layout, hiding the paid stuff sometimes. 

    But it does have Neighbours, which is a very redeeming feature.

  4. I don't think I remember the menu being this convoluted. I've gotten to the cloud path and only then did I discover how to find the healing items (never needed to before), but it's a bit of a mess getting there. Including equippable stuff. They've packed too much into one heading which simply isn't necessary.

    Apart from that game is going smoothly, just beaten the Thunderfish and got a fair bit of levelling up to do because I haven't encountered a blue flower for ages. 

    I'm happy I have waited this long to replay this (not for want of trying), I've forgotten practically everything. Which I always find is always nice in a later playthrough. Don't recall Kalas being such a dick though. I do miss the English speaking though, but without it I've progressed further, as at least in the beginning of these type of games I like to hear every sentence. Since I can't understand shit, I just read and move on.

    I'm guessing that the reason why the game only includes the Japanese dub is because Nintendo owns the rights to the English dub and Namco aren't willing to pay for whatever Nintendo is asking (Nintendo funded the English localisation for both games back in the day).

    The excuse I've seen:

    In developing the remastered version, we tried to make adjustments on some of the expressions to match the current era. That's why we made the difficult decision not to use English VOs for this remastered version, due to the discrepancies that will happen

    Basically they've changed bits of the script and could be arsed to pay people to say the new stuff.

    And @EEVILMURRAY, I'm not even certain I'm getting it. But wouldn't revealing what ties it to Area Zero before it's out kinda ruin the point?

    Not mentioning anything about it all would be a better twist. If I did get it (wife probably will), I'll be looking at things and going "is this related to Area Zero? No, ok that's not going to be important then... next"

    How exactly are they tracking installs? None of the data on our computers should be going straight to Unity. Will offline installers get banned? 

    And with their updates: how are they going to detect installs from bundles? How do they know a second install is one the same computer without collecting private information? 

    Maybe they'll have something that pings when you click to accept all the terms and conditions you never read?

  8. Bloody hell... There was so much information in that Wonder Direct, I'm curious is there anything they haven't spoiled.

    That aside:

    Bowser gets a Wonder Flower = fuses with a big ass castle (which I'm sure will have Neo in its name somewhere)

    Mario et al get a Wonder Flower = pipes go wiggly.

    I was toying with the idea of getting a new mouthpiece for my sax, the good pieces going into triple figures. My Sensei recommended him testing my unit out before making any decisions. In last lesson he tried Benny with his own mouthpiece, remarked on how heavy mine was by comparison, how some of the keys are not realistically placed and how much more effort he had to give to make a sound. I know my sax wasn't top quality, but at least I got him to be more impressed than before now he knows what I have been working with. So it's a case of finding a whole new saxophone. I've found one which has been recommended by my teacher second hand, so I've dropped £600 for a Yamaha. Sadly not a black one like mine, but I'm having to forego aesthetics for quality. Should be coming next week and my sound can improve.


    All the innuendo yes.

    Following on from this, those on Facebook may have seen my eulogy to my previous saxophone Benny, but the replacement finally arrived and the play feel is much more smoother and I think sounds better. I feel I'm getting a better response from the keys. Below be a representation of his replacement, Richter.
