  1. I only watched the video today, but I thought it was very good. Well edited, well narrated, and got the point well across.
  2. Your 2019 Gaming Diary

    Me, I'm more of a fan of Detroid Prime.
  3. I barely had time to play this past week, but I did make some progress. ts;dr: Dragon Quest III manages to pack a lot of charm and character into very little. It keeps putting a smile on my face at every turn. As for my party, John is currently working out with the "Toughness" item, becoming Diligent in the process. Maye has started to employ a whip as her main weapon, which is kinda kinky. Boey has grown Sharp, or at least accustomed to Maye's teasing, and started to answer with some snark of his own. Lynn has remained a Tomboy for a while, but after John gave her a Rabbit Tail, she's become Happy. That's nice. (I don't know how far this headcanon is taking me, but I'm having a blast)
  4. Fire Emblem: Three Houses (26th July 2019)

    These Gold/Exp/Item missions do tend to come with dialogue... all of it comedic. The mission itself, while rich in whatever reward it's meant to have, also comes with an excuse plot, and each one of the characters you field ends up dropping a one-liner. In Awakening, that dialogue was legitimately hilarious ("What if at first ya don't succeed... Retry the level and don't louse it up this time, ya daft arse!"), but that was likely a lucky break, considering the English translation was superb and took liberties with humour. Fates' was similarly lighthearted, but the translation was drier, which means a blander script (I couldn't find transcripts for those, only youtube videos). Echoes had even less of a script for these missions (despite the Awakening translators returning, there wasn't much they could do). If the trend continues, these will be a comedic missions, and how good that comedy is depends on the rest of the game's writing. But then again, I just remembered that one of Echoes' DLC contained an extra tier of promotion for every class (so, a Soldier --> Knight --> Baron could now be further upgraded to "Spartan"). These promotions came with new spiffy designs for the units, new animations, and was sure to make the post-game dungeon easier (it was a pretty grueling dungeon). So there might be some sort of value to these DLC missions we don't know about just yet. We don't know specifics yet.

    Man, didn't expect to see so many recent instances of mistranslation. You'd think we'd be good at deciphering Japanese PR speak by now. Guess not! (Also, "up until now". Holy shit, do I remember that! The Dojo was such a source of clue-hunting and paranoia)
  6. Wow, what a twist for the top spot! These lists are much more engaging the more we vote for them, and I'm definitely happy with how it turned out. And @S.C.G, this is yet another article with a typo... this time from me I just checked, and that's in the PM I sent, so it's fair. The world can now marvel at the fact that I can't spell "if".
  7. Fire Emblem: Three Houses (26th July 2019)

    Fire Emblem DLC has, traditionally, been able to be bought in parts (especially since the selling points of each part tend to vary wildly). The reason they're not listed as such yet is because they're likely going to be released over a period of time... but the season pass still needs to be sold at launch
  8. Fire Emblem: Three Houses (26th July 2019)

    I haven't posted much here, but in the E3 thread I did mention how hype that timeskip trailer was. I'm pumped for this game. Still picking Golden Deer, and if I really can recruit one student from another house, then Dorothea it is! Also, I really hope Claude turns out to be as interesting as I think he is. Depends heavily on what you want out of it. Judging from previous games in the series, I most definitely don't recommend getting everything for its own sake, buy the parts that you want instead. The DLC is unlikely to ever be on sale, too. I also would recommend getting acquainted with the game a bit before even considering buying the DLC. Not sure what your experience with past games is, so I'll give you a rundown on what to expect of each part: Officers Academy Uniform (Byleth) - Planned Release Date: 26/07/2019 New Attire - Planned Release Date: 2019 These are cosmetic. Get them only if you really like those costumes. Additional Auxiliary Battles - Planned Release Date: 2019 Additional Items - Planned Release Date: 2019 These fall into "noob help" content. If you're struggling with money, experience, items, etc. these can give you a boost. Or reduce grinding, if you're doing a speedy run. Get them early if you're having trouble with the game's difficulty, or if you think you can speed up the more tedious parts of the game. For difficult missions, I always recommend you try to beat them on your own since it's more gratifying, but it all comes down to how you, personally, want to enjoy this game (for example, if you're only in it for the story, I could understand not wanting to deal with difficult missions). Additional Story Content - Planned Release Date: 2020 This is the kind of DLC I personally would get. If you enjoy the lore, characters, etc. then this is likely to contain backstory missions, insightful conversations, epilogues, and the like. If you want to know more about Fódlan, go ahead and get this, but only after you've completed the game at least once. Additional Quests - Planned Release Date: 2019 This is a tricky one. I don't know yet if these extra quests fall into "story" value, or "noob help" value. Or even "difficult challenge" value. We'll have to wait until they reveal what these quests actually are. So, any of those sound appealing?
  9. Man, that is a disappointing shortlist. No Excite Truck, or De Blob, or Tatsunoko vs Capcom! Not even Radiant Dawn or House of the Dead: Overkill. The two titles I own but haven't played yet are Sonic Colours and Wario Land Shake It... and those didn't make it either! Luckily, I can still put a Top 3 together, but I'm shocked at how little this shortlist agrees with me.

    I have to go fer another pun, here. Happy late Birthday, Goapher
  11. No... they were Super Famicom versions Anyway, after exploring the area, finding a cave or two, another town, and a few key items, I feel like I just went through the "intro" part of the game, since the first area seems to be so cut off from the rest of the game. From here on out, I think I'll keep game progression to spoilers. On a less spoilery note, I love that having simple character personalities just allow us to project some behaviour onto them, and let our imagination do the talking. As far as I'm concerned, Maye keeps teasing Boey at every corner, while Boey insists a man of the cloth shouldn't do anything out of wedlock. Meanwhile, Lynn hasn't been playing ball with the group, stubbornly insisting she works better alone, and John keeps thinking of the epic adventure ahead. I had the opportunity to change Lynn's personality into "Tomboy", and I figured this can signify some character development. She's come a bit out of her shell, and now understands she doesn't need to be belligerent to prove she's tough. So far, this has been an adventure that's very easy to digest. I can immediately see some strict (and much needed) improvements over the second game, which might just be all it needed to gain the popularity it did.
  12. Trading Card Game Thread

    Man, I haven't played physical card games in years. They're fun, but expensive to keep, as a hobby. Online isn't quite the same thing, as it lacks a lot of the inherent friendliness of talking to someone face to face. I played a lot of Pokémon (up until the early days of Johto expansions) and Magic the Gathering (up until Scourge) back in the day. I see Pokémon these days has gotten crazy powercrept (I think a current mid-tier card would destroy all of those I own), while Magic is still doing their thing (I did try out Magic Workstation during the Zendikar and Innistrad days, and yeah, despite a few changes, it still feels like the same rhythm). Card games in videogame form can still be fun, but it's a robust combat system, rather than sheer competition.
  13. Your 2019 Gaming Diary

    That makes sense. What I like the most about the game is the soul system, and I loved trying out new skills a lot. Plus, the plot was pretty compelling once it got going. As for a new trilogy... Devil May Cry? Phoenix Wright? Mega Man Zero? NES Castlevania? Kingdom Hearts? Though you probably played all of those already
  14. This is a curious one. I have mixed feelings about a lot of the Wii's library. Donkey Kong Country Returns De Blob Little King's Story Excite Truck Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars I own a couple of Wii games I haven't actually played... I hope I don't eventually regret ignoring them.

    Sorry for leaving so suddenly, Glen. Had a great time. Thanks for the matches!
