2016-09-18 22:19KrimzonStrikerThanks for the updates, sorry I haven't gotten out any responses the past few weeks, been massively distracted by my sudden discovery of the Trails of Cold Steel series, will hopefully get to everything this week now that I've gone through all of the 2nd game that came out in the states this month.
2016-09-02 23:23KrimzonStrikerAlright, finally going to finish this one, apologies once again for the delay. In regards to Sunrise hopefully something interesting will come from Code Geass though they really did box themselves in with that story/universe after Lelouch's death I think so I don't see much in the way of expansion after Akito. On more relevant news I edited in some new trailers for the second season of IBO and Origin IV in my second/gundam post, check them out and let me know your thoughts.
Kay, Masamune is cool I guess, but keep me posted if you find anything in regards to what we'll be getting, I'm still hopeful it'll be the buster sword, gunblade, or Zidane's daggers. So yeah, I managed to catch Kingsglaive as well, enjoyed it for the most part, the plot itself wasn't anything really mind blowing but the movie visually looked great, characters were okay but didn't have a lot of time to elaborate on them as the plot moved forward fairly fast, and unlike a lot of the idiot reviewers I knew what I was getting into and my understanding of the mythos/story elements of FF and background of XV already made the story easy enough to follow for me. Well thanks to the Gamescon demo we know one cameo from Brotherhood is appearing in the form of Gladio's sister Iris, so there's hope for others like Ignis baking or Prompto and Pyrna, Noct's poor diet's already accounted for anyway Also, did not catch that old advisor guy who fought back to back with Regis before getting killed by Glauca was her and Gladio's sister. Speaking of Glauca any idea if he's alive/will make a return in XV, Kingsglaive left his fate rather ambiguous but I hear conflicting reports a character that looks like him has been seen in the XV preview stuff. Also, might need to scratch that about Cor and Noct's father, I just realized they haven't resolved the fight on the highway with the serpent lady demon that crippled Noct as a kid, so I expect episode 5 of brotherhood to eat up that portion mainly. Agreed on Ignis' backstory getting skimped on though at least it provided good insight into his character as the team mom, hopefully each of their solo campaigns along with the game proper can build on them ever more.
Meh, I think the lip syncing still needs work, along with some of the NPC side character voices but in regards to the main supporting cast like Cindy and Ignis I'm fine, their voices capture the image I had of them, with an outspoken tomboy on the one hand and an intelligent, serious attendant on the other.
In regards to the push date, yeah, it's disappointing but ultimately one I said I agree with and I'm sticking by that, if it wasn't polished enough yet then it's better to push it back, you can get more time to finish but you can't get the game back once it ends up on the shelves, so it's a small price to pay to ensure all the remaining issues are smoothed out.
Anyway, on to the gameplay stuff. All the bonus DLC stuff looks cool, glad each part member is getting their own campaign which will be pretty interesting to see, you getting the season pass then? I'm glad to see my fears about party control through the command and combo system are alleviated, and that potential co-op option would be cool, if I ever manage to save up enough for a console and the game etc. let's play together Oh yeah definitely not the full thing, they're I can already tell various bits of cutscenes, dungeons etc etc are completely cut up so no worries there in terms of the games flow being that choppy at least.
Anyway, thanks for all the info/links really appreciate it and hopefully this delay won't happen again. There are some new things I'm hoping we can get to in the next round after all, like new info on BlazBlue CF that I'm looking forward to.
2016-08-30 23:17KrimzonStrikerHopefully these will be the last one for this session, apologies again for the tardiness. Also, be sure to recheck my first two posts again before pushing send on those responses you've been preparing then, I added in some edits as new info/releases came out.
Meh, that still doesn't change the fact they've still only got a year, at most, till the projected release date so some kind of marketing needs to show off/assure fans about ME:A.
Just have to wait for more news on what they'll do with this new Prey then. Oh, that's pretty cool, he certainly sounds like he fits in the setting at least. I doubt it really matters but she likely at least suspected if she didn't know for sure based on the picture. Speaking of family relations, interesting news that a Dishonored comic is coming out taking place prior to 2, and reveals more about Corvo's past and some loose ends regarding long lost family members, I read issue one of the six issue volume yesterday in fact where it reveals Corvo's got a nephew he didn't know about, so I wonder how much if any of this will be in the game now.
I did a bit more research and Ubi seems to have dug in and rallied its shareholders, so as long as that stands I don't think Viv will get anywhere but we'll see. That's a potential risk, at the same time perhaps they may realize Ubi's mined its staple franchises out like Ubi itself seems to have given the AC hiatus, and thus bank on the new franchises instead.
I always felt like the gameplay was smoothly integrated with said presentation in LoU though, making it seem like the fight that just happened really did happen before seamlessly moving on to the next cutscene and adding to that immersiveness I mentioned, I also think that was the first time environments could be used so responsively for combat in a game as well, but to each their own. Fair enough. Well, given they have a demo already we hopefully won't have to wait long to see more elements from God of War from more weapons hopefully, which was a hallmark of GoW, considering they have all of Norse mythology to dig through for potential gear now, along with the boy. Really, not even watch? Detroit and its concept look like it'd make a very interesting movie if we're not going to play ourselves. Huh, well the concept/model is cool at least, wonder if they'd actually put the space roman in a game. Well, it's ultimately your choice but I doubt you can avoid open world games given your preferences and that the more interesting titles are committed to that format, heck I think I recall that FFXV will be several times bigger than Witcher 3 somewhere, but hopefully that's just a slight exaggeration given the car traveling element
Yeah, based on what I've read GR2 is a direct sequel so I'll have to go back and watch the first one before looking at this, something to put on the back burner anyway. Ah, well I was referring to hardware in this instance as I'd expect Nintendo would be in the next generation of handhelds by the time TWEWY2 ever came out. True, but how it functions/the nature of the new system will likely impact any future development of the game. Huh, now that you mention it that's not a bad idea though the sensors will have to be a lot better than in the original, always preferred the stylus when I played.
FFXV stuff in the next post, hopefully we can both consolidate after that.
2016-08-29 00:22KrimzonStrikerWe should also take into account the loss of communications and suspicions regarding the attack might hinder/ground most other forms of transport at Vale as well, and that only someone with real connections like Weiss' father might have the pull to travel at this point, the time lag would only be added by the Grimm constantly harrying RNJR during their trek on foot as well. Well yeah, previously I only meant the time skip was perfect for Yang's physical recovery to where she's used to functioning without her arm anymore, the season itself will be about Yang's emotional recovery which looks like it still needs work given how disheveled she looks now. And both Jaune and the story really need him too right now given where we're at. Oh yeah, of course, I don't know if/when we'll fully explore that in this volume because they might be too much of a game breaker right now, but further elaboration on what the Silver Eyes can actually do is definitely coming. Oh, and see if we can't find out about the other 3 maidens, if we're serious about evening the playing field, plus the fact that they could be in danger from Salem and co as well. Also the RWBY Manga finished its first volume, 2nd volume is supposed to be an original story set between season 1 and 2 apparently.
Yeah, really enjoying these new chibi episodes now, let me know when you get a chance to go through them. Have also been catching up on Camp Camp as well, it's pretty hilarious and I'd recommend watching it whenever you can find the time for a good laugh
Yup, went as I thought it would, I hope Eren and co., are properly grateful to Levi for making that call, along with being respectful in regards to the loss of Erwin, puts the Survey Corp in an interesting bind though in regards to their leadership organization... hmm, maybe in an ironic twist Instructor Shadis could come out of retirement to take his former place as Commander. He didn't leave them much choice, and yeah I guess but at the same time there was a lot of other drama involved to make up for it, more importantly I wonder if/how Armin will use Bert's Colossal Titan power. Btw, you read/paid any attention to these spin-off AoT mangas/light novels?
Well, sounds like he'll have some influence in turning Mordo into the real villain, so Mads will have some legacy anyway in the MC universe, plus it was unlikely they'd have been able to contract Mads long term so best to enjoy him while we can, I'm loving the thought or him and Cumberbatch going at it. Hopefully it turns out well for him, there's a need to reestablish Batman since they're going ahead with the JL concept, this definitely ain't no Marvel movie franchise plan I can tell you that <_<
I hope they manage the same visual execution regardless, and yea it's a shame but hopefully they'll find a good enough replacement like what happened with Avatar TLAB.
Nah, they're basically like mini-campaigns to continue the Starcraft story which is fine with me, hopefully the next DLC campaign after this one will be even more interesting. Glad you liked them, you should also go back and check the Lords of War shorts from the previous expansion, they'll actually give you some interesting insight/perspective on the history of Warcraft, tying into similar elements from the Warcraft movie.
Will save the FFXV comments for my last post.
Ah, alright, I'd recommend diving into the WOIAF ebook I sent you first before spoiling yourself any further though Oh hey, while we're on the topic of fantasy books have you ever read anything by Brandon Sanderson? He's a pretty well known fantasy author and he just came out with his first graphic novel, White Sand. I'm really enjoying it on my end and its a great beginner story into his mythos.
2016-08-25 23:47KrimzonStrikerThanks, hopefully this'll be the last time I need to seperate the post and we can consolidate whatever misc. conversation points are left from it in the next exchange.
That's fine, I don't need anything award winning, in fact I could use less intensity to be honest and would just like something with a cool twist/concept while still being easy enough to digest which Kiznaiver will hopefully be. Yeah, though currently the Twin Star anime's only barely passed the first arc of the manga, so best stick with reading that on your end whenever you get the chance.
Yup, plus a highschool student that hangs around their family/cafe so some potential romance as well, something to kick back and relax with while promoting cooking more
Huh, I hope you're right and suppose I'll see for myself once I delve into the webcomic then. Mmmh, even if that were the case the sudden age difference spike/hidden identity could still sever those ties, but I guess we'll see, you're right that this doesn't seem like a downer series but I can't shake the uneasiness that it still might turn bittersweet as well, but I guess we'll have to see.
Nope, the art will be a nice change of pace and like I said I need some light-hearted highschool romance comedy to cheer me up.
I haven't delved that deeply enough into the series to be sure yet, it seemed like it last I looked but you never know so here's hoping. Honestly, if none of the other potential LI can't find a relationship/be happy afterwards I'd rather they just form a legitimate harem so that everyone I grow to care for can be happy, but that's just my own peeve because of how incomplete a note most harem series seem to end on.
Fair warning but TT's also got a alot of elements of Seikon no Qwaser as well, with less over-dramatic theatrics and more comedy while still maintaining quite a bit of over the top ecchi. I might put this on more of a back-burner now that I'm looking back out of it.
Kay, I'll take your word for it. I'll let you know if any of those other series might be worth checking out later in that case. Also, I've recently gone through the Thunderbolt Fantasy series you mentioned before, it's interesting in any event and makes me nostalgic on all those historical chinese kung-fu movies/drama's my family watch, except with actual subtitles for me to understand what's going on, which is a nice change of pace
2016-08-23 23:03KrimzonStrikerHuh, might give that a shot then though I think I'll start off with some of my other favorite Italian recipes before trying pizza, like pasta and lasagna No, I pretty much concluded the same thing and am planning to do that before she ever moves out, but I likely still won't be able to do as much as she did, I'll make due with what I can though. Yeah, this insomnia thing has really set me back and I've noticed my physique has gotten worst, but I think now that I'm getting somewhat more sleep I can rectify things starting this week, good luck on your end as well.
True, guess there's no point worrying about it until next year's Gundam/Sunrise anniversary announcement anyway. It's not a good habit though, I end up not getting much done because of my lack of focus in general, so it's something that I need to work on The manga is anyway, and Thunderbolt itself was pretty open-ended in the OVA/movie versions I thought.
Yeah, let me know when you get a chance to see it yourself. Huh, well I wasn't going to check out Build regardless though I did see the dub for Try get uploaded on kissanime recently so I'll see for myself if it's any good I guess.
EDIT: New trailers for 2nd season of IBO are out, let me know what you think. Can't wait to see what's changed now and how everyone is doing, Barbatos looks spanking at the least Also, a few more trailers for the last Origin movie this year, looks like it's setting the stage for the Loum Arc beautifully.
Eh, that's not likely to happen for awhile with Senzamon pushed out and Gin/Jochiro are still MIA, hopefully they can give him that stern talking to when they show up finally. Edit: Scratch that as of 180, though I figure Gin's got something up his sleeves regardless of his proclamation of neutrality. Well, I think that can/will happen in regards to the judging but only when the opponent is of comparably high-skill, you have to back individuality with quality/ability as well however more creative you are after all. It'd possible/likely depending on if/when they're eventually defeated/taken down by our 1st years. Agreed, though that might have just gotten harder now that they've inserted some new blood with Hayama in the mix, I wonder how far Eizan shot up in ranking now that the former is the 9th seat now, kind of shows how backwards/bias Azami's system is given the colossal failure on Eizan's part two arcs ago Getting back to Akira though I wonder what his agenda could be since like I thought Azami's not letting Jun's seminar stay after all, I wonder if Jun might have sacrificed herself so to speak for Hayama's future and that's why he's agreed to join Central since it was her last wish. Yeah, I hope to see more of that between Ryo and Alice in the actual series at some point, and speaking of shipping I'll go back to my previous remarks on by stating that I've never been comfortable about Jun/Akira potential pairing, given the age difference and how she's always viewed him more as a son and how I'm wondering if Akira recognizes the difference in regards to his affection for her, I've personally wanted to see more exploration of Jun and Jochiro's relationship personally where she could end up as Soma's stepmom at some point, but I guess we'll see. Yup, but that's a ways off so we'll have to satisfy ourselves with more small moments like from 175. Yeah, especially that last episode with the fish market part getting cut so much, heck I'm getting worried if Hisako's stargire period will be animated now as well, so I really hope if a season 3 happens that they'll give it more of an appropriate length of episodes. I think so, and I hope you agree with that sentiment as you get further into Altair yourself.
Edit: Huh, have you read Betsubara #6 and #7 yet? The latter just came out and gives an interesting insight into Rindo and Eishi's relationship.
Eh, it's the price we pay for something as unorganized/less streamlined as unofficial fan scanlation and reader sites. Trust me when I say you have no idea until you get at least to that chapter 19 point in the story I marked, and that's just to give you an idea of how big things will get. Speaking of how soon do you think you'll be able to start really diving into the series, I'm really interested to get your impressions of the Altair world as you explore more of it. Pretty much, I'm still confused as to where they're going with it but it seems fine for now at least, not a lot of SyaraonxSakura moments or new characters/reintroduced old characters yet though, they're still establishing the premise with the introduction of a new set of cards now.
2016-08-22 21:19KrimzonStrikerOnce again, sorry about the delay, just been feeling sluggish but I'll see that I get this finished by the end of this week/Friday at most. On the plus side I've got more to discuss now after seeing Kingsglaive and the new Shokugeki release.
Thanks, don't know if I've gotten enough of a hang for coding but it's nice to have on the resume anyway.
Congrats, and I'm glad you found it as enjoyable as I did, and I'm glad they finally semi-resolved that issue. Yeah, though still poignantly sad since Mercedes and Ingway still got screwed the most out of everyone. No I get it, and I'm fine if they leave the format like that but if any series deserved a sequel I think Odin Sphere did, so hopefully the next game they come out with has as interesting/compelling a story line, Dragon Crown was nice but rather lacking in that department. I imagine the schedule's opened up even more now that FFXV has been pushed back so let me know how much progress you make on all that misc. stuff I've sent/recommended along with the remaining games you're wrapping up, in any event I'm going to get started on FE:F next month, got a new credit card I need to spend 500 with to get a 100 back so I might as well get my 3DS now Edit: Thanks for the 3DS news, think I'll hold off after all, I'm closer to my reward goal then I thought anyway. Yeah, I recall now, hopefully you find it useful, but seriously do you have any recommendations as to how to send you a 600+ cbr file for Warcraft Chronicles? Emails impossible and I'm not sure how to upload that kind of format on google drive to share through there with you.
True, though I imagine it'll still be relatively lengthy, but with the new release for XV you should have enough time to finish LG beforehand hopefully. Speaking of, any concerns now that your time has been halved for XV before P5's release? You haven't struck me as a person who goes really crazy on video game purchases so I would have thought picking up only a few titles over a year would have been manageable, still I'm sure things will work out in any event.
Eh, if they're going to continue bringing over the Phoenix Wright franchise as a whole though I generally feel it important to not short the effort by leaving certain titles behind, if for no other reason than to promote the series as a whole, hence my gripe about other franchises that do the same such as VC3, but I digress. Suppose your right, a same as the quality on said RPG's is usually quite good from what I've seen on the Vita. Well, that's encouraging at the very least, wish Nintendo the best of luck now, diversifying the market is always a good thing for the video game industry as a whole.
Edit: And just as I was done ranting about VC3 I just learn they're coming out with ANOTHER game in the franchise for 2017 called Azura Revolution, looks like it's a prequel from when Valkyria were common. I swear if Sega doesn't get its act together and restart importing this series I'm gonna blow a gasket...
Maybe, but it feels unlikely if they were able to do HD for VII but not IX, which is the real problem with this, going back to my previous complaint about short changing the effort, if you're going to do something go all the way I say... Same, it's a different look given how little we see of Bruce as just himself, much less getting to play as him, and same here though it'll be a fun watch on youtube at the very least. True, but until VR builds on those steps I think we can move on for now.
Good stuff regarding the Blue Dragon news, it's not a confirmation but it gives me renewed hope for Lost Odyssey. We should a keep an eye then on how they go about adapting it for BC, like you I hope multi-disc's won't be necessary but we'll have to see.
I would expect/hope it would, most RPG's do, even action ones, especially if they cut down on Aloey's commentary. Collectible journals would be nice as well, such as those from Uncharted and the LoU.
Makes sense, as I've said before just do what works for you and let the chips fall where they may and work themselves out.
Fingers crossed then, in any event I'm fully expecting they'll do justice by Thrawn's character whatever happens. At least a couple more seasons I think, Clone Wars got 6 for pete's sake, and with 5 years between then and a new Hope I imagine Disney can keep it going however long they want as long as it's popular.
2016-08-06 00:45KrimzonStrikerSorry, meant to get this out earlier but got stuck with paper work for various things
Fair enough, shouldn't judge ME:A when it's still relatively early but I'm still apprehensive thinking back to DA:I. Ah, I'd forgotten Pre-Yavin works also fell under the Legends label now, okay I don't have a problem moving on in that case. Agreed, on both counts.
I'll take your word for it, in any event let's just hope this reboot is interesting enough in its own right then. It is a little jarring but I think the voice itself works very well, as for admitting Corvo's her father I suppose they see no need for pretenses after so many years have passed with Emily on the throne.
I'm still going to say MS was probably my least favorite of the conferences.
That is a worry though I won't get too anxious since Ubi seems determined to fend that off, and whatever happens at least these specific new games will be coming out, and if Vivendi has any sense/wants to make a profit on Ubisoft going forward they'll continue developing these new titles, should they really acquire the company anyway. Eh, that's what showcases are for, to get feedback to work out bugs/kinks in the mechanics, and I doubt all the social media aspects were implemented
I'll admit the gameplay/mechanics of LoU weren't revolutionary but it blended well with those other great elements of the game enough to make it a really immersive experience. Same here, the ax already looks pretty cool, and hopefully we'll be able to put the kids new skills to use ourselves in certain segments of the game, plus the boss fights should help shake up the gameplay significantly, especially if we get to fight that Dragon. It can't hurt, Detroit looks like it's got a lot of potential so hopefully other writing perspectives will help the game realize it. Yeah, that sounds like Kojima, and speaking of being weird and complicated you see his company logo trailer and development videos? Never knew the guy had such a bit thing for whales <_<
It's pretty sad, but I think we've dwelled enough on Nintendos' failings, let's move on and just hope they do better next year :rollseyes: Sounds complicated, between cartridges and a hybrid model I wonder what kind of games it'll play in that case, suppose we'll have to wait and see. Fair enough, anything in mid to late 2017 that could obstruct BotW once you get the February releases out of the way?
That's encouraging, is a sequel where I need to know the story of the original GR or can I potentially just skip right to GR2 when it comes out? I don't disagree they had an interesting group but in my mind XII kind of wasted them and their potential, X felt more dynamic in terms of character development and stories for each member. I think so, whether Nintendo will actually commit to a sequel to TWEWY is yet to be determined though. I think it's a good enough guess, but you're right, just have to see.
True, though given there's a patch going in day one I hope/expect they'll try to stay on top of it, but again we'll just have to see when 9/30 roles around. Almost always does, execution is the key to all success/failures in the end, just have to hope it all works out in any event.
Amen, so moving on.
No prob. And it's fine, family made their peace with it years before it happened as her memory started to slip, but it was good to catch her one last time before it came. Enough about that though, got to focus on our own lives now so moving on.
2016-08-03 22:32KrimzonStrikerFine, then I think we'll just go with the assumption that they'll stick to the previous season format of the past two Volumes until shown otherwise, moving on. Well I think that depends on how often they get sidetracked by these errands like helping this village out, and if they stick purely to walking the bulk of the way to Haven. Yeah given it's been only 6-8 months I think that's just the right amount of time to start the season with Yang's full rehabilitation/recovery. I doubt that'll ever happen if he wasn't when they started this journey but I do expect Jaune to be much more serious/focused going forward. In any event it'll be cool to see how else Ruby and the others can apply their semblances as new situations come up, like these new Grimm threats/species for example. Well, let's just establish what Jaune's semblance is first before getting ahead of ourselves on what he could potentially do with it going forward
Take your time, they're not going anywhere but keep them in mind if you ever need your mood lightened
I'll keep you posted when it does.
Practically yes, but story wise Armin's younger and has more potential for growth, along with having much less emotional baggage tying him down then Erwin, but we'll have to see. I don't think it'll go that far given we just resolved a civil war but I expect this will stay with either or both Eren and Levi whichever choice is made with potential consequences in the future. Sucks Reiner survived/won;t be available to get intel from since Bert's going to be eaten soon, it all comes down to the basement now in order to salvage something worthwhile from this endeavor beyond plugging Wall Maria, which is a superficial victory if/when the shifters recover and come back. Meh, I'm finding stuff here and there, so I'll manage emotionally, moving on.
Yup, very pumped for the Strange movie now though I'm curious if you know anything more regarding the villain from the trailer? Bah, I'm only expecting weird things when it comes to JL/DC related stuff, only mildly interested in WW just cause I wonder what the WWI angle is about. Just have to see then if Zemo pans out into the villain I hope he'll become.
Oh btw, Samurai Jack is finally getting its concluding season, with ironically a time skip involved. Supposedly it's going to be pretty dark which I'm okay with but primarily I'm thankful they're just finishing the series at last.
True that, glad he's doing more big named titles now between this and the new Thrawn novel. Speaking of Starcraft though Nova Covert Ops Mission Pack 2 came out, had some interesting twist/setup with some surprise characters returning which makes me look forward to how they'll conclude the story. Yup, so keep it in mind when you want to start diving deeper into the Warcraft story, at the very least I'll let you know my own thoughts when The Traveler comes out.
Yup, all we can do is wait and see what the finished product is at this point, so best stop worrying about it until then. True, but best not dwell on them, if it happens great, if not oh well, still have the rest of the game to play. Still, do we have any word what the initial tribute weapon for NA is at least? Yeah, apparently around the 8/16 here in America, though I likely won't go as the downloadable/streaming version will come out 8/30 this month anyway, so not that long a wait. I'd rather expect a cameo mention like that for all of them, Prompto as we go further along the road trip. According to wikipedia she's being saved for the 6th/exclusive episode that ties back to the first along with the Platinum Demo dream sequence so likely not. I could see either Noct's dad, or that grizzled guard captain they meet in the game, sticking with the theme of brotherhood anyway.
Very cool in that case, glad they managed to incorporate him so smoothly into the story and he'll make a great rival to Noct. Hah, if he does have his own agenda he'd justify the Char Aznable vibes I'm getting between their sisters, serving people who are/were his enemies, and challenging our MC. More so in Kingsglaive than in the game itself I think, which means he'll fit right in considering the makeup of the English VA cast Also, how far are you into GoT/ASOIAF I didn't figure you'd know who Jaime was yet
Bah, I told you to forget about it! Ah well, the images I've seen of the new Voltron aren't too bad so we'll see if it redeems the franchise then, moving on though.
