Yesterday 02:34KrimzonStrikerHuh, new info on those World of Remnant videos for Rwby in an interview for Afterbuzz, the DVD for volume 2 will have an exclusive 4th short of that beyond the three we discussed already, interesting. I'm not sure on the details of the game either so we'll just have to see.
I'll always remember he was the one to get AC on the map anyway. Gah, more Kenways, will they never go away!! Now I'm really not going to pay much attention to Rogue <_< Nope, and I'd give it a shot if my bank account wasn't a little sore right now but it certainly looks entertaining I'm not overly worried either though I do wonder how long Blizzard can ride it's three main franchises for much longer. Indeed, and more then anything I just love the dynamic of her being a templar will bring. I doubt that'll be the case, but moving on from Square until TGS comes and we hear otherwise then. Yup, I feel like all the other games have basically been completed so some hints about BB would fall rather nicely now. Hah, they have been stuck in the Persona 4 mode for a while with all these spin-off medias haven't they? Right well, we'll see how things play out for WoW in November, hopefully this expansion helps reclaim some of it's past success and we get some real progression in the story, it'll be fun regardless so moving on. Right well, I'm all set so hopefully things will be running smoothly once the finished product is out and we can tinker around with it ourselves, tell me what kind of story you'll be looking to flesh out and any alternatives you'll have in mind, they apparently have 5 slots for different saves available so that'll be good to just see how some decisions I'm on the fence about play out.
Diablo is basically how all the reviewers have cast it, and I like the more personal notion behind it and the customization features, should make it more engaging versus typical level grinding and the like. And there's plenty of room for the to add more characters, which are all apparently going to be free DLC btw so that's nice. I do hope that at some point Bioware gives and figures out how to install a PVP aspect finally, it just really needs to happen I think. No, I get their mindset, they don't want to pressure people, but a little incentive wouldn't have hurt so long as it was nothing critical and made it feel more integrated with the overall universe. Still, it'll be a good chance to explore areas outside of Orlais and Ferelden, some sites have hinted at maps/arenas in Tevinter so those will be interesting to see if true given all our talks on future games and settings they'll take place in.
They're good stop-gaps, which is what I said they should have been from the beginning. Isaw a similar rumor but it said July, so I'm still slightly hopeful we'll see something around November and December at the earliest. That long eh? That would put our current pace at around 60-65 percent completed right now, we still have more then a third to go. This upcoming Season 2 will no doubt cover the latest two arcs, so with all those years in mind I figure they're going to have to come out with something to stop-gap between Season 3. Perhaps the Before the Fall spin-off is inevitably on its way after all
Yesterday 00:07KrimzonStrikerMaybe it's just not listed, but they have all kinds of mugs, and t-shirts among other things there so perhaps retail is their main outlet. Something to look at then. No prob, happy to help and hopefully it works out alright. Maybe, though I wish they'd perhaps done more to say incorporate Ant-man's story into the Avengers if the script was already set for his movie, maybe even just a cameo where he helps Tony set up Ultron, it's a wasted opportunity in my view. Really now, that'd be... weird to imagine, is he just taking over his role on the team or is he actually assuming his identity, because it'd still be pretty weird and unlikely to have no Captain America in the Avengers which is why I have my worries about Bucky. Gah, don't remind me, but it's not like those disintegrating relationships, it's only circumstance forcing them a part so I have hopes they'll recover at some point. Hey, I'm all for it but it's still pretty true that Strange might be a powerhouse but he's not exactly the most well represented or iconic figure in Marvel, look at Black Panther as an example, as for magic it seems like Thor has that aspect covered for the most part. Oh that one was easy, it knocked off several heroes all at once and paved the way for the inevitable space movie for the Avengers later on. Gah, that's a shame if it's true though I'm not surprised, as I said Marvel likely has to pick and choose which movies to pursue based on how relevant it is to the story they're going for and the general interest/knowledge people already have for that character.
No doubt, still rooting for Kurokiba for the upset Agreed, though given how they brought up Megumi who had a similar pedigree character wise I'm going to give him a chance to impress me, but at this rate I'm actually hoping he is a spy just to make him more interesting. Huh, hadn't given the grand prize much thought, it could lead to some interesting directions for the plot depending on what it is, which I believe I speculated as a right to challenge for the Elite Ten and which I am just hoping beyond hope happens Gah, I think not, Souma would be the most unruly butler to plague high society
I'm with you, bravo on her part and a great demonstration as to why she was regarded as the strongest girl of her class by Weiss way back in Volume 1. I'm leaning toward take them out based on Mercury's comments on Cinder being able to handle Pyrrha, plus secret operations like the one they're on would be at a great risk of being compromised if they tried the recruitment angle. Cannot wait, we got some nice teasing this episode but the real development and progression is probably waiting for us at the dance. Well, for starters she appeared to compliment him that one time in episode 2, though he failed to take it for the sarcasm it was, but I have a theory that Jaune's low self-esteem drives him to go for a target that will undoubtedly turn him down, which is why he might be so blind where Pyrrha is concerned on that front as well. She seems a bit too driven with a sense of direction for me to think that's the angle, I was more on view that a new order is needed maybe, but we'll see. As I said, if they use this well then Bolin will have to step up as a heavy hitter with Korra down so I'm not worried about that for the time being. And that's all well and good but as you pointed out about his withdrawal now's a good time for Mako to finally break out. What irritated people about the focus on Mako, from my understanding, was in how they used him, as I said the sympathy for Korra right now can be used as a means of generating gratitude if the utilize Mako correctly in relation to that for once instead of unnecessarily tearing him and his efforts down like the the first two books, and however much they may dislike him increases in power always gets people's grudging respect because of the shock and awe factor. They're nit picking, every past lightening user has picked and chooses when they brought it out, it just had to make sense for the situation plus even if it is shortened there's still a need for preparation to bring out the lightning plus to minimize the risk of exposing themselves if they end up missing cause they'll be stuck in that stance, look at what Amon did to Zolt for example; generally the directors like to bring it out for dramatic moments and when they're looking to make a decisive blow. Exactly, so I'm praying Bryke doesn't mess up this opportunity, for all the characters sakes. You're right, I have to imagine even if there are more Red Lotus that Zaheer was the big fish so with him gone they still could do damage but don't seem as big a threat, so whoever is up next will need to be someone substantial and that will take time to build up, which our supporting cast can use wisely while getting Korra back up on her feet.
2014-08-27 23:42KrimzonStrikerRight, well, we'll see where Inquisition leaves us off at then before worrying about and speculating on where Volume 2 might hint at for the next game. Yeah, but they also needed a movie to really finish up his story afterwards, it's time to move on form Ezio and do his legacy justice finally. No, I agree, it just doesn't take away from that fact that I really couldn't get back into the Kenways and that I'm glad we're done with them now. No doubt, more often then not I check out a few games by users I like on youtube now and again, and hopefully Heroes of the Storm proves to be as successful in that regard. No confirmation that she's playable unfortunately, though I figure she'll be integral to the overall plot with plenty of appearances. Hah, not holding my breath for that, ah well only 2 and a-half more weeks till we can see one way or the other. I'll be looking for it hopefully then when TGS comes around, it sounds like as good a place as any of Arc does have the next BB in the works. Okay, I'll give you that though it's mostly a means of doing alternate endings/story-lines, for the most part I think we're done with that though and after that last ending it feels like we're finally getting into the meat of this conflict. Yeah, hopefully they have a plan on how to end it when that happens, WoW should go out with style. Interesting, once I logged in to my origins account I then went to the Keep site and then just clicked from there so it wasn't all that hard for me. That does seem the case more often then not, still there's no denying they feel appropriate for the setting and I won't mind speaking my Inquisitor speaking like that, it'll add to his character
Either way I prefer the dungeon lay-out compared to the Horde mode of ME3, it gives you tangible and uniqe new environments your actually prompted to explore versus just wandering around looking for cover along with tangible loot rewards versus bland way point. The environments should be much more intricate to play in as well, and teamwork no doubt becomes more important with these far more distinct class separations. It'll be something I'll WANT to come back to when they do update verses the repetitiveness of ME3. Bad news though, doesn't look like they've tied anything in to the single-player in terms of transferable resources, it all goes to your customization for your characters and such. Guess I won't be playing it too much, but it should be fun to dabble with.
Yeah, it's a two-part OVA for Levi which fits with the length of his manga, though do you have any idea what pre-production would be along with what kind of time-frame that gives us before we actually see Season 2 released? I'm taking a wild and hopeful guess that it comes around the end of 2015 but my fear is whether that means it'll be more likely to come out around the beginning of 2016 instead.
2014-08-27 23:41KrimzonStrikerI've been to Forbidden Planet, they sell all kind of memorabilia and that includes anime DVDS. Chicago doesn't seem to have the right resources though unfortunately, maybe this fan site can help a bit though. I think the main thing you have to hope for is to get tickets to a convention if you want to go retail price wise, here's a $20 Blu Ray sale plus shipping an handling though if you don't mind taking a risk on this non-brand name site. Yeah, for now let's just enjoy the gun arc while it lasts then. I certainly think so, he can fade into the Spider-man category for the Avengers for all I care at this point. Exactly, the minute he bailed they should have dipped back into the well and re-hammered the story to resemble something along the lines of the original Ant-man to tie it in with the rest of the Avengers as a supporting anchor. Unlikely, the guy who plays Captain America's contract will be up in one of two more movies, and there's no talk of a renewal so it'd likely be a permanent change for Bucky if that is the case unfortunately for me I know, but I'll take what I can get, they were my favorite pairing in Marvel honestly, even in front of Hank and Tigra. I wouldn't mind if I thought the COULD do it but between time and budgets I can't see them being able to expend that much effort for everyone to get an individual movie, not to mention subsequent sequels, so they have to pick and choose and frankly on the notoriety scale Doctor Strange is going to fall at the bottom despite that I personally do like him and his character.
Something to watch out for in a later date then. I don't either, but like the lack of Erina they haven't DONE anything with the sudden realization of her feelings for awhile so I have to figure they'll play a role at SOME point in the story and frankly I'm getting tired of waiting for all these plot lines to pan out. Mmmh, well other then the newspaper boy possibly being a spy I won't worry about what Subaru is doing, and instead hope beyond that sliver of hope that this temporary partnership with Erina and him translates into something long term, that's what I'm going to be looking forward to most even before the match itself.
Right, well I suppose we'll worry about that after episode 7 then, for now let's look forward to getting back into the meat of things tomorrow . I hope not as well, that'd be pretty uninspiring in terms of an overall goal, if there's a deeper philosophical meaning behind the agenda I'm all for it. Right, well given that time frame I suppose it's premature to expect a major reveal on what their motivations are, for now it looks like we'll be focusing on the consequences of their actions. I hope not, for the most part I'll treat it like a fun minigame and that's all I'll be looking forward to the game. They only had a week of two between Book 2 and 3, logically it'd make more sense to take place in the months between Book 1 and 2, especially since they revealed Pro-bending is available to play in. Hopefully we'll get a better understanding as we see Bolin use it more, for now I'm just going to let him enjoy his moment of glory I think it's the obsession part myself, she might have been unhinged but that sense of focus probably didn't go away, in fact that was the problem as it consumed her every thought really, though at the same time I'll allow that several years of producing Blue Fire probably makes it feel natural and instinctual to her by that point. See, there are still doubters so this only highlights why Mako stepping up next Book is going to be important if for no other reason then to resolve these ill-feelings/indifference once the series is done, and I don't see their point, he only had an opportunity to electrocute her thorough the lake, firing lightning directly to specifically target Ming-Hua's tendrils would have required too much accuracy/time compared to just shooting at a wide surface area like a lake and would be easier for her to dodge considering lightening's narrow spread when it fires unlike a large fireball. I hope that won't be the case and they play up the injury for awhile, it wouldn't mean as much if she just suddenly and quickly got back healthy in the first two episodes, I wouldn't be comfortable unless it was episode 8 or at a minimum 6 at the half-way point of the season. Me neither, maybe Suyin can do something from Zaofu, she's got a commanding personality, though the main reason I bring it up is I'm worried how much the trouble in the EK will take away from exploring the Fire Nation and hope they manage both scenarios time wise reasonably well.
2014-08-26 23:19KrimzonStrikerGiven that we're restricted to Orlais and Ferelden for the time being I'm not expecting too much new information, maybe a few codex entries hinting at these other lands but that'd be about it. They definitely seem to have plans to continue the DA series well after Inquisition though which is good and provides me with a sense of relief.
The only things to like about AC:R was that we got to see Altair again, as for AC:3 and 4 we got to ride ships, that's about it, so I'm thankful we're making a clean break story-wise with Unity while simultaneously getting back to 2's urban environment roots. If they make mini-games it should be a purely for fun kind of spin-off from the main series like Blizzards Hearthstone or Heroes of the Storm rather then some shoe-horned lore tidbit nobody will even know come the actual mention in the main series. Mmhmm, hopefully some more tidbits and demo's going forward will show that off, I'd like to see Elise in action gameplay wise for one thing. I would be as well unfortunately, but if they keep to this 2015 projection they've got to start getting ready to put a date on it at some point soon. I'd just like assurances that it's on the way is all, after the wait we've had. Ah , then GG sounds like it's basically done so hopefully at least a trailer to show BlazBlue will be on the way at some point this year. That is surprisingly true, though to give BlazBlue credit it's adoption of the light novel format has made it's storylines much more compelling them most other fighting games. Yeah, though I do wonder when they'll admit defeat and finally bring the game to a satisfying conclusion story wise. I'll just enjoy the ride for what it is for now, and worry about the future once a clearer picture on the direction Warlords is taking comes into light. Well I've just registered on EA's origins website, so I'm set to login to the keep once it is available, it's a completely online browser site from what I've learned though so easy access for us Hah, I hadn't even thought about that but you're right, I wonder if it's something in the water in Britain that causes them to be so associated with fantasy motifs
True, though I do wish there was a bit more interactive story elements like say in TOR which was one of the few good demonstrations of their flashpoint system I felt. But hey, phat loots and tangible resources for when I play on the War Table are always good
2014-08-26 22:53KrimzonStrikerWell when you can manage it it shouldn't be THAT hard to track a place down that sells Sword of the Stranger at a more reasonable price I imagine. I remember seeing it in a comic-book place called Forbidden Planet for $23 recently. Only the gunslinger arc is confirmed, though they have 24 episodes planned so who knows. No, I see your point, though I hope to god they don't include GL for the JL movie now that you bring it up <_< No, I can see it too, I'm just thinking Ant Man isn't that well known and has a movie scheduled, would it have been that hard to tie the two in to help promote it through Avengers? Dang straight, I'm not sure how I feel about it since I like the Winter Soldier persona more though. Oh, they can just make up some circumstance in the next movie where they bond or something, it'd work Meh, it's a shame but they've got enough of the core now that I'd rather they focus the budget on the Avengers series going forward.
Yeah, logically speaking it just doesn't seem likely, something needs to seriously happen to massively reverse her attitude toward Souma for her appearance to last beyond this preparation week. Hah, I'd laugh, though I wonder as unlikely as it seems whether or not romantic rivalries and jealousy might develop if say she and Megumi encounter one another, we haven't really visited the issue of Megumi's feelings for awhile now. I hope so, this is one of those golden opportunities for the two to clear the air with each other. My impression is Subaru takes great pride in knowing every detail, if a detail escapes him he becomes incredibly disturbed like how Souma caught him off guard by upping the stakes like that. In point of fact it might make Eizan MORE determined to take Souma down and force him to submit. No doubt, will be fun to see when it happens, but for now character development time FINALLY with our two supposed main characters so hopefully some interesting spoilers pop up tomorrow.
Mmhmm, and there'll likely be a LOT of details they could fill in with these shorts so it'll be great in keeping people's interest as well long term, one of my biggest headaches in going to a new world cold is trying to figure out where and who everyone is along with the relationship dynamics within that world. Indeed, that stockpile Cinder and Roman though give some pretty big hints they'll be important I imagine, perhaps an environmental disaster waiting to happen, or an energy shortage, the possibilities could be quite dire if and when they're revealed. It warrants a look, and I'm sure we'll smile a lot at some gameplay nostalgia moments but I won't expect much, the story can't be all that compelling just given the restrictions by the show plot. Indeed, it'll be tough watching her going into Book 4 but if they do it right it'll make her recovery all the sweeter, still I'll be excited by the opportunity the others will have to grow into their new responsibilities as guardians of the world. You're right, you're right, though the fact that only fully realized Avatar was ever shown lava-bending did help highlight the matter I thought, the fact that it's a liquid to me is what made it so difficult to control given their love of rigid forms, earthbenders have actually never been shown to transform their element prior to lavabending like dirt into mud or sand now that I think about it, they can bend those things but never change the molecular structure themselves prior to now. Going to go with her level of focus and singular mindset personally, even if she lacked exact control at the end since that's what I generally associate with the color blue anyway Yeah, well got to take the good with the bad, we've had some dynamic story arcs at the very least to go with them. I do wish that had occurred as well, but frankly we're lucky they managed to get approval at all. But NOW is the time to strike when emotions are raw over Korra's debilitated state, if Mako can somehow build on that and show he can be a true pillar of support for her people's sympathies for Korra would in turn translate to gratitude toward Mako, and I'm glad to see people were impressed with the Ming-Hua fight which is why he NEEDS something like Blue Flame to make him more badass to impress people further. Could be a combination of both, though I suspect it'll be because of recovery first and then some situation develops that becomes a real danger. That Air Nomad protection proclamation by Tenzin is a good way for them to do so and I'll be shocked if some kind of resolution isn't reached to end the power vacuum in the EK.
2014-08-26 15:35KrimzonStrikerHey Dann, ign just came out with confirmation on a multi-player co-op. It looks okay for now, nothing shocking or ground breaking but it seems like an improvement on ME3's experience with a bit more variety. I like the idea of a dungeon crawl like envrionment along with tangible loot. Here, take a read/look or check out this new video.
2014-08-25 22:02KrimzonStrikerEdit: Huh, I just checked the DA wiki, and this is relevant to our discussions on future expansions but apparently it contains info of lands and countries OUTSIDE of Thedas. Now that is setting up some ground work right there, I think the DA franchise is in good hands in terms of material to work off of going forward.
Hah, well thankfully DA:I doesn't look like it's going down that path and Unity looks free of it now as well so I'm optimistic everyone's learned for the better Which I don't think they even finished on facebook, so I'm not overly worried on that score with DA:I. That's why I'm happy we're starting fresh with Arno and Elise, it looks like an intricate and more compelling drama and might be what finally gets me back into the universe to finally see how exactly this is supposed to end with the current situation in the present still looming. So yeah, TGS will mostly be the topping to any otherwise fantastic cake, at least when it comes to the remaining releases for this year, I won't say no to additional info for stuff coming in next year certainly or for that matter a definitive date for FFXV or KH3 etc, which would be nice. Gah, I hadn't heard that, I thought they'd basically moved on from the franchise and were going in full speed now that Persona 4 Ultimax is basically done. They can't just leave BB at the cliffhanger they did though so I hope Arc is dual developing both games in that case. Huh, I just checked the DA wiki, and this is relevant to our discussions on future expansions because apparently World of Thedas Volume 2 contains info of lands and cultures OUTSIDE of Thedas. Now that is setting up some ground work right there, I think the DA franchise is in good hands in terms of material to work off of going forward. Very recent, they're little Flashpoint things and not something I expect to revive TOR but it is nice they're throwing a bone. I can't wait to dive into both DAI and Warlords stories when November hits. I don't THINK that's the case, Blizzard could have done that while ago, I imagine it'll be a satisfying special event expansion when/if they decide to close WoW down though. It's ridiculous, and quite frankly I'm glad someone finally snuck some images out, at least I'm somewhat relieved we'll get comprehensive coverage for everything we want going into DA:I. I appreciate the options, even if I haven't heard the American versions yet for either gender, and the British ones made sense given the previous games accents except for Orlais and NOBODY wants to be talking like them
2014-08-25 21:51KrimzonStrikerI thought you were in relative travel distance to Chicago or was I mistaken? There should be shops aplenty in a big metropolis area like that if you can look them up online beforehand. That's probably it, either way the anime has plenty of material to base and continue off of from what I've read. All we can do is hope for the best, at least Batman still has enough cred to buffer D.C a while longer, even if this whole non-Christian Bale crossover has me worried for the J.L movie going forward. Yeah, it would have worked out so much better had they tied in to Hank and done more to promote the Ant-man movie after a debacle like that, and honestly I'm more excited to see a sequel dealing with Winter Soldier instead (and tieing him to Black Widow like in the comics ) then I am for Ultron. Avengers can wake me up when they join the Guardians or something to stop Thanos. I'll let you know if Gotham's any good then whenever you have the time to catch up.
Heh, I'd buy the volume with that scene if it occurred, especially if Souma is the one or just tags along by some circumstance I'm afraid that might be the case, with how impatient some people are though I hope any wait in between when we see her next isn't too long, this brief appearance likely won't be enough to abet the criticism of Erina's lack of presence in the main story. Not to mention how Souma might react to the knowledge those two know each other, but more then anything I hope this current scene they have going on regarding the stew helps change and fortify Souma's own perspective while hopefully garnering more of Erina's reluctant respect once they finish refining it. I for one would like to see Subaru's relationship to Eizan brought to life and their reactions when he does lose, I imagine Eizan will make what Erina did to Ikumi seem like giving her a Caribbean vacation.
I'd like that, though I wonder if they might save that for breaks in upcoming volumes given Monty's projected length. The ominous ending to the monolgue by Cortana on Dust would suggest something big behind the scenes, but we'll see. Or they may never bother and treat it like it's nothing, but moving on. Not if they keep to their past promotional schedule, I don't expect anything new till early spring to summer. Yeah, it looks okay but I just don't know how enticing it is for some people, tie-in games generally don't have a compelling enough story to garner new customers or anyone who isn't already committed to the franchise though I will check it out. Well I hope so as well, and tough as it is on Korra it'd give the other cast members an opportunity to shine and develop since she'll be relying on them more. One of those drawbacks in having a shortened season, but it's not as though they didn't do the same with sandbending, or how how exactly waterbenders transform water into ice or clouds, we've had evidence of lavabending since the original Avatar, not to mention of conversations regarding how one obtains Blue Fire or combustionbending, we'll just have to make the logical inferences ourselves. And at the very least we have confirmation on the strength of will needed to dig deep down when the pressure is one that brings the talent out, like going back to Toph and metalbending or Katara suddenly mastering bloodbending. I hope so, I fervently hope so, he really deserves a means of building back his reputation among the fans even now and this is as good an opportunity to do so <_< Well as I said I won't deny she could become important, but her actions like when I pointed out with Suyin are too controversial to what would be logical for a Red Lotus agent to do, so I'm not going to fret over the matter unless something changes. That expected Fire Nation focus next Book might be taking the main gang a bit away though, but it'd make sense for the Nomads to concentrate on the Earth Kingdom, among them finding and helping out new airbenders and trying to alleviate the conflict. I really wonder how it'll all turn out for the EK though, whether they'll unify under a new leader/government or completely break apart into separate states.
