2014-07-16 18:04RyoneaNah, don't worry about it. Busy times again, I assume? I'm a bit on the bored side over here. it's fasting month for me and uh... you can say it's the equivalent of summer break in most countries... although it's hardly summer at all since it rains everyday and the air is very cold Speaking of summer, I'm glad that both of my banners made it into the winner category, yay. XD (the Chimame-tai one is mine, while the other one made it into honourable mentions and will be used in the future).
Yeah, it's been many months since that volcano incident so everything is cleared up
Ah, I see. I've just completed the game quite recently and been grinding for completion sake before starting the new game plus. Yeah I noticed that starting from Ayesha, Atelier series is going to be published by Tecmo Koei. I also heard that there's no dual audio for Ayesha? that's a big letdown for sure. I wonder if the upcoming Escha & Logy localization will also suffer the same fate... oh speaking of Atelier series. I noticed that Escha will return in Shallie, but frankly her design become worse IMO
Yup, although previously I find the game to be diffcult, now I feel the battle system to be very solid actually. Thing become quite easy once we understand the system. Although there are still many strong enemies out there even if we maxed our levels. Really? IIRC Victory's system became the base system for the games after it. Such as Re;birth1 and Re;birth2, and even Fairy Fencer F. Their systems derive from Victory's, especially for the battle.
That's 7 games you're preordering. I assume you'll go for the limited edition for all of them? I'm currently really saving my money to get a PS4. Have you seen the latest news about Neptune Victory II? especially these magazine scans.
I was kinda pissed when it was first revealed to be on PS4. But after those scans came out... okay, I surrender! It's funny that it's a niche game like this that solidify my decision to get a PS4.
Ah, I see.. way to go to drain our wallet (although we're also happily doing that, lol)
This season, I'm not really sure. So far it's only Prisma Illya that I'll watch for sure. Still on the fence about others, such as Argevollen, Hanayamata (for some reason I like the atmosphere of the city), and Tokyo ESP (I just found out that it's from the same author of Ga-rei). How about you? I assume you'll watch almost all like always but what are your personal favorites out of them?
2014-06-09 19:36RyoneaOh, hahah. Quite lucky that you read it 2 days prior the hack. Now that I see it again, you seemed to miss some details but it doesn't matter since I don't really remember what I posted either
I see... that's quite new to me. The powder must be handled with extreme care then, seeing it is used intentionally. The volcanic ashes here only scratches things... well, maybe except for our skin since I can feel my palm kinda became smoother after touching it, lol XD
Nah, I can see why people could confuse the authors since their story premises, character designs, and even the artstyle are very similar to each other. Yep, I noticed those RPGs you mentioned but aren't they the Japanese version? we can save up for 1 or 2 years later for the localized version, or do you usually import the Japanese versions too? I'm interested in the Neptunia U since it's action game. But I don't have Vita, so I can only hope the re;birth series and the rest of the Vita games could get into the PS3 someday.
Yeah, I know mine is nothing compared to yours, but managing them already gives me quite an ordeal but at least I can manage to watch all of them because usually there are some series that'd go unwatched if I have more than 3 titles in my watchlist. You got that right, Fujimiya Kaori is soooo moe but in quite different way to most characters nowadays. That's why I really like that series and use it for my entry in this Summer banner contest Hahah, Daimidaler is so stupid yet so entertaining for sure XD I watched it to get a great laugh, although often times I really feel sorry for the main heroine ^^; You think so? well, probably it's because you tend to watch almost every shows each season so you can tell why this season is so special
Oh, I thought you've played Neptune Victory already? or was it the Japanese version? I only knew about the sale because I see someone posted about it in the thread. The timing is so convenient because I was just finished with mk2 that time. Yep, I've played it for some time already and it amazes me. Now the game fees like a proper PS3 title (I think the previous ones could be done in PS2 or PSP). Quite a big leap in terms of visuals. The combat feels difficult, though I just reached the end of chapter 2 and stuck at 39/40 score at the chapter review because I haven't cleared the D-rank quests (the tough foes). Should've seen the walkthroughs first because I didn't know that Noire would leave at the end of the chapter and it's very tough to manage the combat with just Neptune and Pururut (she's really adorable <3). Gotta say goodbye to my grind efforts T_T
Hahah, that sounds like compile heart's DLC alright. I assume you didn't have the DLCs in the PSN version, then? I too probably need to consider some of the DLC stuffs for Victory since I find the combat to be difficult
2014-05-14 21:26RyoneaAh, I just realized that, too bad. The same thing happened to my conversation with Ritsu Tainaka below your post. The recent hack was very unfortunate indeed. Come to think of it how come you can reply this if my post was gone?
Oh, so it's the sharpness that makes it sticky? Yeah the cleaning was very painful, especially the ones covering my car. I was told that using water isn't advisable because it could leave scratches so it kinda confused me. The powder is very persistent too that you can feel there are still some left even when we clean it using water. Well, those ashes got into home unfortunately, but of course only at limited extent (the ashes will get in even when opening the door very briefly). Still, we had to do more sweeping and mopping the floor everyday.
I see, that's very lucky indeed. It's very nice of the shopkeeper too to help you find it in other stores.
Well, actually not. Kinmoza's author is Hara Yui while GochiUsa's is koi (that's the name). They have similar feel and atmosphere due to them being published in the same magazine (Mangatime Kirara Max). As far as I know the manga in that magazine are typically girls-only slice of life 4 koma, hence the similarities. The authors from that publication tend to do cross-over works too, such as drawing character illustrations, inserting references in their own manga, or maybe participating in official anthologies. If you've watched K-ON! and A-Channel, the original manga also comes from the same magazine. This is Hara Yui's illustration of A-Channel characters and another one for GochiUsa ("Endcard" illustration from 1st episode).
Yep, the Kinmoza artbook did feature some crossover illustrations with GochiUsa. The artbook itself is very nice and worth the purchase IMO. It contains not only the colored illustrations but the B&W arts, and character concepts as well. Not to mention the cover pic and material feels very elegant too!
Speaking of artbooks, I just discovered that GochiUsa also recently released its own artbook too. I think we have to get that too!
Hahah, my watchlist this season is actually a bit more than my usual standard. Usually I only watch 1-3 shows per season, but this time I have 7 (Eschatology, GochiUsa, Love Live!, Date A Live II, Isshuukan friends, Daimidaler, and Nanana). My HDD and internet won't keep up If I add more
Oh, so it's kinda back-tracking, then? still that's amazing considering you still can get the old ones. I'm quite a hunter of official wallpaper myself and from what I see there are not many sites (such as imageboards and fansites) that have official wallpapers, let alone the older ones. I see, I've also never seen a game company making that many wallpapers, especially after their game was released. Not to mention they have numerous resolutions too so people with older monitors could still enjoy them. No wonder why you are willing to put them all into an archive.
btw. recently I've been getting into Neptunia series. A few weeks ago my friend just bought a PS3 and he got lent neptunia mk2 from his friend. After he was finished playing it he lent it to me, and whoa! I've never thought I could really enjoy the game despite the barebones system. I like how the story still has RPG-esque feel to it without being too serious (except the conquest ending T_T). I initially thought it'll mostly contain humours, but I was wrong. Thanks to that game I also recently downloaded Neptunia Victory when it was golden week sale in the US PSN, but it's yet to complete due to the slow connection here. Can't wait to play it.
And... speaking of neptunia series, I also just found out that they released an artbook of the re;birth series. Here I thought I'll be free from any money problem, aaaaarrghhhhh!!
2014-04-02 07:59RyoneaI was supposed to get called and have my 1st period of my thesis examination, but there's no such thing despite it's been 2 weeks already. As a result, these days I reaaaaallly play hard, lol I got my mini-revenge XD
Yup, exactly. No wonder those sandbox games (like Grand Theft Auto series) have more people wander around the city killing people and wreak some havoc everywhere rather than continuing the story
Eh? no need to be sorry. I think it's a good thing that you know some Nihongo. One thing for sure is that you're way better than me since I can't even read hiragana and katakana.
That machine translator thingy is very new to me.... Interesting. Judging from your story, the program seems to be pretty reliable and accurate.
Yep, the last year was totally worth it for me. Aaaannd.... the event is back again this year not only that, the schedule will also be 1 month earlier. I don't know whether I should hope the anisong artist lineup is to my liking or not. Saving up more is pretty much impossible for me since due to a circumstance, my "income" is decreased starting from this year. On the other side, so far my spending is almost none (for otaku stuffs). So let's see whether I could come again this year.
Whoa, 500-600 dollars but I think it's quite normal considering that you went overseas. Just going there itself already money-consuming so might as well enjoy the trip to the fullest. If I have the opportunity to go to Japan probably I'll do the same as you.
The translation of the manga has been quite slow IMO so I think there's not a lot to catch up oh, have you seen the OVA episode of the 1st season?
Haha, sure. There are a lot of point of views for sure. I dropped Tamako since the 4th episode. I can't enjoy it for unknown reason. The movie should be interesting though! Free! was also quite unexpected but I like it XD
So, did you get your Tales of Symphonia chronicles yet? I don't know how things are on your side, but generally, waiting is more beneficial in terms of japanese games over here. The prices will go lower and we don't need to worry about the availability since they're niche games. The neptunia games keep coming and the neptunia victory also get a remake and to top it off, there's also a newly-announced Atelier Shallie too, although it's still far from release. Things aren't going to be easy for you Yeah, Japan really knows how to drain our wallet. But at least this hobby somewhat becomes one of our motivation to do better in life.
And it's almost a new season again... ^^; yeah I didn't watch much but I'm really pleased with Mikakunin de Shinkoukei. Hopefully it'll continue again sometime. Finally love live 2nd season is about to air... can't wait! I'm particulary interested with Gochuumon wa usagi desu ka and also Atelier escha & logy the anime.
Less sleep... that's something I can't do these times. I don't know why but I kind of have a fixed sleeping time now. I used to be a "night creature", though. And as you said, having less sleeps will reach the limit someday, and in my case it could make me "paralyzed" for 2 whole days
btw, last month was quite disastrous over here. A volcano on neighbouring region erupted and turned many cities (including mine) into some post-apocalyptic settings. The whole city was covered by thick volcanic ashes. We were practically trapped at home since it was quite dark outside, near zero visibility, and the ashes itself is hazardous if inhaled. The situation lasted for about 4 days. Here are some photos: in front of my house | aerial view of the city | condition on the roads
2014-02-03 03:57RyoneaOh, I see XD I'm also thinking to get a kind of revenge after my thesis is done, but it's still long way to go
I see... I think it is quite largely dependent of the game type. RPG games, both japanese and western (like Skyrim, fallout, etc.) I think is better when played alone, while some type of games are really better for multiplayer. Well, it's only the proposal plan that get approved at least the premise of the research is accepted. Now I'm working on it to get the approval for the research design, after that hopefully things will go faster... since most people are stuck quite long on this proposal stage.
Really? I think of you to be good in Japanese since you play a lot of non-localized japanese games and not to mention you went to Japan relatively without problems too. Oh, a new computer! I assume it'll be loaded with high-end hardwares then? since video encoding is really time consuming indeed and stronger hardwares could really shorten the encoding time. I remember that the computers in my uni's audio visual laboratory has 16GB of RAMs, wow
Hahaha, yeah. but I don't regret it although sometimes I still think about it, lol XD I spent that much since it might be my last time to come to such a festival. Yep, I've also seen that particular scan of the figure. Very very accurate indeed, as expected from Alter.
Well, I've read the manga up to the latest translated chapter (Illya became a doll) that's why I'm quite worried on how the events will turn out there are a lot of spoilers in the fate subforum... and it seems it'll be quite some time before Miyu can rejoin her friends. T_T Oh, and there's a teaser scan about 2wei anime. Can't wait!
Hahah, to be honest I'm quite surprised that there are quite some people who find the show to be... "fuyukai"? since I'm enjoying it very much due to it being a bit different from KyoAni's usual show. But nah, that's not a problem.
Oh, the old one. Yeah, from what I see and hear, the old one is still better in terms of hardware, especially since the new one switched back to LCD screen instead of keeping the OLED like the old one. And yes, it feels far better compared to PSP indeed. I've tried my friend's. The touch panel and screen need quite some time to be used to, though a little fact that it has second analog stick really helps Yep, the newer Neptunia games are on Vita indeed, also the plus version of previous atelier games (rorona, meruru, totori, ayesha). Seems like you need to gain more money to get the 3 love live! games too!
This season... so far I'm only following 3 anime: Chuunibyou s2, no-rin, and mikakunin de shinkoukei. -->> really like this one XD also considering noragami and maybe to aru hikuushi e no koi uta since Ayacchi is one of the cast, hahaha XD how about you?
