Old Friends,
New Foes,
More Chaos!

It's a return to Tartarus in more ways than one as Makoto Yuuki fights to conquer the ominous ziggurat on the big screen while those who would defend his legacy must solve the mystery of its catastrophic resurrection.

Too far in the future for you? Then go back to where it all began with the latest installment of the core Shin Megami Tensei series that has you straddle the line between Monster and Messiah in a story that will take you beneath the Earth and into the darkest depths of the soul.

Wait a second, if this is a remake anime, maybe they'll use Yumi and Daisuke's stories for the Sun and Strength Social links this time around.


They could make the Marie thing work though. The makings of a good story are there, the climax is well written (the part where the fog parts and Marie sees all of Inaba was quite sweet), as is the beginning, but the middle section with the awkwardly done interactions with the IT was where it suffered; this poor set-up harmed its conclusion as it's where the emotional payoff was supposed to happen. Again, I don't think the concept of the character is unsalvageable, it could very well benefit from the efforts of this slightly tweaked creative team.

But enough of that. Time for Dance!

Huh, shows what I know.

What kinds of games are they playing nowadays? Is there any dominant genre or is it about a varied as it is here?
>> No. 187158
These were the most popular games in Japan last year, according to some websites.

Monster Hunter 4 (2.5 million)
Tomodachi Collection (1.45 million)
Luigi Mansion 2 ( 500,000)
Animal Crossing: New Leaf (440,000)
JOJO Bizarre Adventures (420,000)
Ace Attorney 5 (340,000)
Mario & Luigi RPG 4: Dream Adventure (320,000)
Disney Magic Castle: My Happy Life (280,000)
Donkey Kong Returns (270,000)
Shin Megami Tensei IV (260,000)

So, Nintendo still obviously controls the Japanese market, but we see a LOT more variation than when it used to be nothing but shitty JRPGs and Nintendo Mario games.

When I was young, I thought Zero was a girl.

My first D&D character was a Premade character known as Boogerface.

The first D&D character I MADE was a half-dragon fighter named Dragoon Darkfire. Which is where my name comes from. I got the name from Beyblade.

I also roleplayed on Play by Post forums for a while and it was as terrible as you imagined.

I also didn't buy any Dreamcast games except for like, Sonic Adventure 1 and 2. Most of the games I got for it were burned because my mom knew a guy who could do it.

>Literally the entire ending part of the game doesn't make any sense without knowledge of Trigger.

The ending made it's connection to Trigger through several scenes of information dumping. Stuff like Lavos and Schala had so little bearing in the story-plot itself, they could of easily been written out and have the end boss be a freak of nature created by or for all the time-travel experiments.
>> No. 187065
That's still basically admitting that the game has no real ending without the attachment to Chrono Trigger. And if you tried to write out Schala, wouldn't you have to write out Kid?
>> No. 187070
The end boss is the fusion of a time-altering monster and a powerful magic-user during a unnatural space-time. And Kidd is the clone of that person trapped inside the monster. Their names were pretty irrelevant until just before you have to fight it. And the game didn't have much of a ending even with CT.
The narrative was poor for Serge having no drive to move the plot but just be dragged along into smaller, unrelated conflicts until the plot kicked him in the gut a few times.

So I finally got around to playing Loadout today after seeing _STAR play it on his channel months ago and holy hell is it amazing.

For those not in the know, it's a free to play arena style shooter. Think Quake or Unreal Tournament 2004, but in 3rd person. The main hook of the game is you can build just about any kind of gun you can imagine and it tends to be pretty balanced.

This said, the game DOES have its problems; some of the maps feel pretty empty at times and could use an extra two players to keep the pace up and some weapon mods end up being pretty worthless, but you can test your weapons out on training dummies before you buy them.

"Free to play? What's the catch?" I hear you asking. Surely there must be some sort of micro transactions to keep the game alive right? Right. BUT it's only for aesthetic items for your character. Sure you can burn some scratch on EXP bonuses or to get in-game currency you use to buy weapon upgrades, but after an hour or two of playing you'll have a decent amount stacked up already.

Go ahead and hop on Steam and give this game a try if you're into Arena style shooters.

Hey that's how I roll...play.

Say what you will, it's within the scope of a Paladin's personality to favor negotiation (plus, it turned out that mind-control was in play, so I was right.) This other DM was just big into "Evil! Brou-hahaha!" side of things, and it showed. Very railroad-y, too, after the session he told me "You're not playing a Gnome right, I'm gonna race-change you, okay?"
>> No. 186977
That guy sounds like a dick but at the same time if the rest of the group wants to kick in doors and wreck face, that's maybe not the best campaign to be playing a negotiator in.
>> No. 186978

It was really more two or so specific people who liked the rolling/combat stuff more than the walking around and talking stuff, and it's not like we didn't have plenty of both through the campaign, I was just pretty good at diffusing a situation where the other players would have just rolled for initiative.

So I've been playing the shit out of Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together for the PSP, having got it when the semester started as my commute game. Got my first ending and while I have some issues with how things go down at the very end, I can safely say that this is by far the best game on the PSP, and probably the jewel in the crown for the Tactics style of JRPG/SRPG. If you like FFT, you owe it to yourself to play this fucking game, it's SICK.

The original adaptation is pretty straight. It cuts some stuff for time (like Dorothy getting the golden skullcap that let her summon the flying monkeys) and changes a couple of tiny things, like making the slippers silver instead of red, but the plot is more or less the same other than the "all just a dream / you were there and you were there etc" bit. But using those things to say "there's never been a straight adaptation of Wizard of Oz" is like saying there's never been a straight adaptation of Lord of the Rings because they cut Tom Bombadill.

So here are the Voxaphones. They're in OGG, I can only play the format through Windows Media Player with the Windows 7 Codec Pack, and half of them have the default name (the others at least at least have who made it.) Also I'm pretty sure I'm missing 2.

However, I spent three+ hours going through 2000+ files, so I figured I'd upload what I had and do conversion et al. another day.
