    Was that its central feature that the others didn’t possess? I couldn’t recall if it was mentioned as being a unique feature. For the most part yes, though a number of interesting things happened such as the developments with Fareed. I do quite like that Mika saw through it so quickly.

    Yeah, that seems to be the case and I guess Char’s mask hid his eyes in the same way, though we didn’t actually see slots open on it. He did and also acknowledges his own mistakes that led to them losing, which means he’ll likely be even tougher next time. Still don’t quite know where they’re going with Ein’s whole story. Saw the specs on it and it definitely has an interesting history to it that makes it come across as something like a counterpart to the Gundams. The name of the suit and frame seems to indicate it’s one of eight models made. I do find it funny that the most powerful mechs in this series are all super ancient. It does seem like a bit of a waste, but oh well. I wonder really. A problem both Kudelia and Tekkadan have to deal with is that they’re very much dependent on others and thus prone to manipulation by the various factions at play. Getting out of that is going to be a challenge for certain. Perhaps, but that’s not an excuse or at least it shouldn’t be. Why can’t we get both is all I’m wondering. That and they were sort of just generic and lacked the individuality that the different factions had in season one. I am getting a better feel for them with all the background politics going on along with Fareed’s shadow movement in the background.

    It’s the right approach to take in all this and quite appropriate for his character. I suppose it also works as another distinction between him and Azami as the latter seems to have let an obsession with what happened in the past define who he is now. That’s a good point and then we have all these new characters as well.

    Hard to say since it could go all tragic. Seeing the killer stopped though is something to hope for and then perhaps the lead getting on with his life. I’d be curious if the plot would have him get another shot going that far back again, but I suppose that could cheapen the events we’re seeing here in this new timeline. I guess I’m not as affected since I haven’t watched any of the show yet myself.

    I’m not entirely sure that’s the case with the original game as from what I can tell there really isn’t that much in the way of multiple paths. It seems like you just do all those romances in the game and he’s got like a harem, which is kind of weird. I’m just a bit unclear on what apparently caused them to wake sooner than intended. And were they really reunited at the end there given that the darker half was still trying to get out? Ehh, kind of I guess. I’m actually becoming pretty annoyed with this adaptation as I’ve managed to read a number of the things they cut out and changed with some of them being downright baffling, especially with some of the episodes being filler unique to the anime and none of it feeling that important in lieu of what we could have gotten. I’m an episode away from being caught up now and we seem to be heading towards interesting events, though there are some hints that have me feeling I know where this is going to end. There’s a third game that seems to continue from this one coming out in September so perhaps we’ll have another anime to go along with it. But I really, really hope we get localizations of the latest one and this new one. Atlus apparently has been the one to localize Aquaplus games before, but I don’t know what the odds are of us actually getting it.

    Well, technically there do tend to be particularly good fathers for specific children based on what classes they grant as well as particular stats, though this is speaking in terms of Awakening. Some children had picks that were especially optimal and you had to figure out who got who for the really good ones. Combinations that allowed any of the children to either earn the Galeforce skill or access to the class that granted it were especially useful, though from what I hear gaining that skill in Fates isn’t restricted by to women anymore. The bigger amount of options obviously complicates things in Fates along with the different versions. Revelation in particular since it allows you to have members from both sides intermingle. I need to figure out how it works more in Fates.

    That’s most of them that I can think of. Ultimately I think the DS probably had a larger bevy of quality titles compared to its successor.

    Neither do I, but I suppose there are probably guides to that sort of thing as well. It does seem better to go with a pre-built one even if it might not be as optimized. There are a lot of resources as well.

    Maybe, though I feel that scene is largely done now though aspects of it seem to be feeding into the upcoming VR market. Yeah, turns out my sisters had it so if there ever is time I could probably give it a go. Not sure there’s much reason for them pursue such an avenue though since the game wasn’t widely popular to my knowledge despite getting a good reception. Perhaps, though the Xeno games are generally considered among the better ones put out from Nintendo and are quite varying in what they cover.

    Well yeah, they’ll eventually get to all that I imagine since for the most part they’ve followed the timeline of the game without too much jumping around. That whole game could be used to great effect. They could probably even craft a better told story. I’d be fine if they didn’t really or if it was a more small scale handheld thing. Yes, 6 was pretty good, though now you have the long wait and it seems like they haven’t had any problems with it thus far. I always figured they had an arrangement with Funimation, though a lot of times it can be the Japanese companies who do all this. I don’t know that I’m squeamish about it so much as I don’t really care. It’s nice they’re doing this remake, but if this is the last word on VII then I’d say that’s perfectly fine so they can move on to new entries. Last I heard it was still in the early concept phases though there are people with the company like Ito (FF12) who haven’t had any projects in quite some time who could work on these. And I’m curious if they’ll go to outside more if this works out for them or if this was done largely due to the size of the project.

    Not exactly, no. The fact remains that there’s never been an example of a game with a large and troubled development history like Versus/XV’s that actually turned out to be good. And XV needs to be great, not just good after that huge wait. And it could be, but I’ll err on the side of caution. What I saw looked pretty nice overall, though the whole turret section was a bit odd to see. Definitely a good showing though and I’ll certainly look forward to that event in March. Of course, having an actual date could make the wait all the more tortuous. Looks like the tech demo they’re releasing will be something like a prologue where you play as young Noctis. Indeed, though I wonder if that mysterious hooded figure from way back is still in or not.

    It’s not quite the same though since Persona’s system had an element of randomness you couldn’t get around along with the ability to just recall demons from the compendium if you wanted to toy around with other combinations. I remember I had these small little guides for 3 and 4 that allowed one to schedule things pretty well, though sadly the company that made those isn’t around anymore. No, that’s around when I played it since we didn’t get a ps2 until late in its life which allowed me to go back and play some of the old ps1 games. And you’re right, that’s hardly unique to IX.

    No, but it seemed to give everyone a good taste from what I’ve heard. It remains to be seen, but it’d probably be in their best interest. Possibly, but after how the thing with Desmond ended I’m not sure they’ve given anyone any reason to care about it. Most I talk to wish they’d have just gotten rid of that window dressing after how they handled it. Yeah, by all accounts that is what we’re getting though it hasn’t been spoken of officially yet. You mean March and beyond? Dark Souls 3 is 4/12 if you’re into that, Bravely Second 4/15, Uncharted 4 4/26, Odin Sphere 6/7, Deus Ex 8/23, and that’s kind of it in what we know.

    Gameplay from an event that happened today for FFXV. The March event will be on the 30th where we'll get the worldwide release date and likely some more info.

    Here's a summary I found of the info they revealed: http://www.novacrystallis.com/2016/0...e-time-report/

    She’s been absent for some time and it doesn’t seem that they’ve seen her since that time with their comments about honoring her wishes and the like. I wouldn’t mind seeing it all get deconstructed for them completely and it even seems like it’s happened a bit for them. Of course, if humans find where the Shifter village is then I wouldn’t imagine mercy or seeking peace would be in their minds at all. Cycle of revenge and all that. Oh, probably not unless it’s some sort of warped view of doing what’s best for them. True, if at least one of them lives then it could still work out. There’s still Annie in her coma as well. Wait for more information as always I guess. I suppose he may have wanted to make sure his son had the right resolve to be able to understand everything well.

    Well, they’re still only human and it does open the door to possible improvements in their tech for future games now that this conflict for the moment is over. Yeah, there isn’t too much there with them and the protoss would be more interesting to see. I wouldn’t know as I haven’t played Drakengard before. The story was quite good I thought, though there are multiple endings (3-4 if I remember and the last one was pretty cool in how it worked) that provide deeper views into what’s going on in the world. The new one takes place a long time after though I think there might be one recurring character. It still seems to be available, but new copies seem a bit expensive looking at Amazon. Digital is always an option as well. Yeah, the other stuff is tempting of course, but I’m in no great hurry at the moment.

    Yes, seeing what happens with him is one of the things I want to see most. Looking forward to seeing Black Panther and Spider-Man as well. I was thinking as well that we sort of left off on a cliffhanger with all that. Yeah, and probably one that could potentially get messed up depending on how they play it. Hope we get a trailer for it soon, though probably not till the summer.

    I actually sort of like that about Kylo Ren since he is just a kid really trying to emulate Darth Vader, but not accomplishing it. The notion of someone on the dark side struggling to resist the light was an interesting thing to see as well. Did you hear the rumor going around that he may show up in Rebels? Not substantiated yet of course, but an interesting possibility. Though I worry fatigue might set in at some point, but if the quality stays then it could be alright. I wouldn’t mind some sort of KOTOR movie either. Will do. I was wondering about that as well and Poe’s unit could certainly qualify.

    It could do with a bit of cleaning up perhaps certainly. The MKX story was alright, though nothing groundbreaking. Fun at the very least though.

    Yeah, though I hear there was a blu-ray release in Japan that it seems isn’t going to get released here anytime soon sadly. You mean Chaotic Century? I can’t actually recall ever seeing box sets for those, which is a shame since both series were good. Right, Giant Robot Week. I remember the episode they showed of Evangelion was hilariously edited given the content. Not trying to do that. Just not getting too invested in case it all goes to hell. It happens sometimes such as them not renewing the license or just not making anymore. Hmm, strange.

    Perhaps, but it’ll likely be a long while before we find out. Yeah, it is fun going through some of the other chefs too and seeing what they all can do. Hopefully it’s doing better now for you. Go ahead if you want, though I don’t know how soon I’ll get to them.

    I managed to get that job in Austin so now it’s just a matter of planning to move down there which is a tad stressful.

    Yeah, something like that. I’m sure they used what they could for it, but the repairs and such Teiwaz did on the Barbatos were apparently based on old records they pulled on the suit. I’d imagine they each had general appearances that could be changed or adapted given the situation. Going by the preview for the latest they’ll definitely be having some trouble here.

    I’m a bit confused as to what’s up with the opening eye slots on the mask. We’re certainly due to start seeing some aces for them and especially what they can do in Gundam frames. I’m trying to think of one though and nothing comes to mind that was like that. So yeah, I guess they do need to worry about replacing her. I sort of wonder why she seemed to have a place in the opening given how long it lasted unless they edit it due to her being gone. Sort of feels like we’re moving on after the latest and not sure they’ll go beyond what we got here. I’m not sure what to think of what the Teiwaz boss was doing at the end. He’s either just up for backstabbing them or playing some sort of game with Nobliss. Anyway, the way the show handles topics like this could use a tad more subtlety to it. I keep getting small vibes that remind me of the A-Laws in 00 and how stupid all that was.

    Indeed, though it seems Erina is thinking about it a lot as of the latest though I haven’t seen a translation quite yet to know for sure. I also notice we still haven’t gotten the story behind his leaving the school to go the way he did. Probably join up on what seems to be the developing side of Soma, though even with their skills the deck seems stacked. Indeed, unless he joined to protect it or something.

    Yeah, saw those. Bit of a twist but nothing too bad since they’re all alive. Granted the killer is still loose like you said, but there’s still a chance to move forward. But it’s one I’d probably look at later at some point after learning how it doesn’t seem likely it’ll get beyond the point, which would leave a bit of a cliffhanger.

    Finished and yeah. I think my ultimate takeaway is that I wish the games had come over in some form as I get the feeling there’s a lot more detail than is in the show and have even come across some info when I went looking that seems to confirm that. Liked Dii as the antagonist since he’s not exactly malevolent despite his actions (he didn’t even really want to kill Genjimaru from the sound of things), but just doing all this out of thinking it’s the best. There was also the mention by Genjimaru that it was too soon for him to wake that I found curious. I watched the first episode of the second series and like it based on that thus far. The animation seems great and Haku is good contrast to Hakuoro. I think he’s probably just a regular human from before that must have been in some sort of stasis. Have some theories on Kuon, but far too earlier to say if they’ll pan out.

    I feel like we’re heading into something like that, though I guess they could always pull some sort of victory out of this. I don’t think we’ll see anymore of her this season unless it’s a glimpse near the end of a new model or something. Perhaps and they may deem her too unstable, though keeping Amber there doesn’t seem safe. That or it was a flash forward until after what’s happening here and they wanted us to know ahead of time who the masked woman was.

    I’m not sure we will and I’m starting to wonder on that theory about Ozpin since I also saw that note about how his name does not follow the naming conventions everyone else does. I guess I’m just not sure what made them think she was even a threat unless Emerald saw Ruby noticing her.

    Hopefully so.

    I think I might actually be like that as well in addition to the stat thing since I tend to try and scour everywhere for journals and little bits to the point it probably makes things take even longer due to that. Yeah, that was how it was for me in the GBA Fire Emblem game since it wasn’t quite as complicated as the newer ones. I don’t know, I might just go minimal on the Nohr and Birthright routes and then get all obsessive when I get around to Revelation since that’s essentially the last route. I do wish it didn’t take so long to build up supports since that’s how you’d really determine that sort of thing, but there are just so many with all the characters. Oddly, it seems to feature its own set of characters separate from those in the main game. I presume it’s the parents of the characters we’re playing as, but I’m not sure. Still, it isn’t going anywhere.

    Yeah, everything is a matter of interest in the end but at least something caught your eye. I’m probably forgetting things as well as I said before. Biggest problem with the first game is that the second half of the game is intensely repetitive if you want to get the most out of the story.

    There are definitely a lot of classics and hidden gems to pick from there. Are you planning on building one or picking up a good one that’s already got everything there?

    Well, it’s not like they couldn’t make it if they went purely on the software development side, though it’d be bizarre to see Mario and Zelda games on a Playstation or the like. I think my sisters picked that one up though I never played it myself despite finding it intriguing. LO was published by Microsoft though so I don’t know the chances of that happening. I know Mistwalker showed off concept art for a new game they said is being aimed to be on consoles. And technically, Nintendo does have an RPG studio in Monolith Soft now that I think about it, who made the various Xeno games which are all quite good.

    Well, we don’t know that they are going to talk it out since it just ended with him exploding and her just being shocked. It could just start with her beating him up or continuing to avoid it. I’m sure we will get to it eventually though since they can tie it into a lot of later events. Oh of course, but I think it’d be a fun idea. Especially VIII. I could have sworn there was some speculative talk about that happening or them wanting it to do it, but I can’t remember. Went through it all and you’re right in that it’s quite good and gradually gets better and better as it goes along. The next episode is supposed to be up in the next few days, though I heard a troubling rumor that copyright claims and such may have gotten to them or something as the episodes 4-5 got struck with a claim and taken down. Hopefully it’s nothing like that. You could probably do some trippy stuff given his mindset during that time. I’ve long heard rumors about XVI being at least in an early form of pre-production with a small team developing ideas, which I don’t really see a problem. VIIR also has a lot of help outside of Square so I’m not sure how much it would impact.

    No, I don’t generally do easy mode on things like this as with something like Persona I actually like the challenge of dealing with the enemies. Persona isn’t a series I really concern myself with min/maxing either as it’s just a bit too much given how involved the fusing system is. I’m fine just working towards stronger fusions. The only thing I tend to be a tad careful about is scheduling time in order to advance all the little stories as far as I can with an aim to finishing them all if possible both for the gameplay and story advantages that brings. I can’t say ultimately. It’s been a long time so my memory on a lot of IX is a bit sketchy to be honest. I just remember the final boss kind of coming out of nowhere and some other stuff.

    I think it’s only for a few days starting Saturday. Yeah, it’s certainly not just them but I tend to think of Ubisoft as the ones who have sort of set the pattern many seem to follow with these though there are still many different takes. Word is this is more like a reboot than anything else, but I’m sure more details will follow. It’s supposed to be in ancient Egypt, which is a pretty good setting. That’s certainly the truth.

    I don't know what's gotten into me but I'm suddenly watching Iron Chef episodes again. Looked at more Morimoto matches along with several with some of the other chefs. Even saw a match with Ohta as the challenger with Octopus as the ingredient.

    Hope you're doing well after that winter storm as well.

    Didn't know if you saw, but it looks like David Gaider left Bioware. Given he was pretty much the lead writer for Dragon Age, I'm curious where that'll take things.

    Most likely. Him simply putting forth that view to others would have likely led to it being found out if he didnít figure it out himself. Well, theyíre ďwarriorsĒ as they like to constantly state so theyíre likely told to shoot first and ask questions later as it were in regards to matters like this. That does sound a bit better Iíll agree in their reasons. Oh definitely. Itís ridiculous to hold all of humanity responsible for actions committed so long ago, especially when practically none of them have any real knowledge of the truth. Indeed, and Iíd imagine a visit there might be due at some point though that is likely far off. Iíve been wondering if the one who raised the walls might be a rogue one of theirs or something like that. At some point most likely though Iíd sort of wish for more resolution before something like that, but maybe it doesnít matter. Yes, thatís something it was interesting to hear them mention for sure, though Iím curious how they would take it away. Is it by way of being eaten as weíve seen so far and thus Zeke was threatening to kill him if he didnít get it together? Things are definitely stepping up though. Iím now wondering if the contents of the basement might lead us to an arc detailing Grishaís past along with a look at the Shifters village.

    Thatís about it though Iím lacking a bit on the contacts end sadly. But yeah, that should be enough for now.

    Hope that works out for you then

    Yeah, and I do rather like the power armor and all. I feel like weíll see more since they are quite popular though all the factions are to some degree I guess. Yeah, hopefully it works out like that alright and there arenít any serious setbacks. Final Fantasy XV, Persona 5, Fire Emblem Fates, and Nier Automata are the ones Iím pretty well settled on. Considering whether I should maybe see about Bravely Second as well since I noticed the first became kind of scarce, but weíll deal with that when we come to it in April. Thereís others of course that I want like Horizon, but I figure that can all wait till holiday deals and such since the ones listed should keep me busy enough.

    Definitely and I look forward to seeing more of him and what he can do. That was a bit confusing, though ultimately I got why they went for that sort of angle. That could definitely lead to some fun explanations since it isnít quite as easily quantifiable as you can do with Thor.

    Oh, Iíll be waiting as well. I still might see it out of sheer curiosity even if itís bad, though itíll depend on the kind of bad if it is. Hope you liked it Full blown movies and each appears to be a cornerstone of Disneyís releases that year so theyíd have Pixar, Disney Animation, Marvel, and now Star Wars films every year. I believe they announced them at the Star Wars celebration earlier in the year (maybe earlier) and then more info about Rogue One started popping up with cast photos and such. Not yet unfortunately on the Hannibal topic. I think itís fine to do this sort of thing for starters since thereís a lot of history untapped you could explore and perhaps they could go more into the new era once weíre either done with this new trilogy or at least another movie in. I know Iíd love a Rogue Squadron movie or something akin to it.

    Itís certainly possible and Iíve never gotten the impression they paid too much attention to the story in these games anyway. Weíll have to see though. Given how big the game always is, youíd hope they could contribute some of that towards creating a better campaign to single player even if multi-player is the big draw.

    Outlaw Star was actually the first anime I ever bought back in the day after saving up for a while. Still have that old box set on my shelf. Never seen too much of Nadesico though my memory may just be bad on that count. Same here. Well, IBO could always end up going the same way after all but I get your point. I think itís ended by now unfortunately since I think it went till the 18th. Same pretty much in general. Only went for Origin since I had some gift cards from Christmas. Wish Iíd had some the last time they did this deal earlier in 2015 or I might have tried for some more. I do hope they donít go out of print anytime soon.

    Yes, on that front I canít say Iím worried.

    As am I though Iím wondering if that suit might just be what it looks like without all the modifications that were done to it. Yes, hopefully he does well and lasts.

    Hopefully, though I have some concerns on the pacing of it all. I guess and at least the mask thing allows for some interesting developments, even if there are times I almost wish theyíd drop these old UC conventions like the Char clone. Gjallarhorn as a whole hasnít been the most interesting antagonist to me, but perhaps that will change. I guess the consensus is that itís also a Gundam, though it appears to lack the face which seems to stay with the other frames weíve been able to get a look at. Well, catís out the bag regarding Fumitan and all so weíll see if she does the expected thing and dies next episode. The thing with the brother could have been handled better in conveying his whole deal even if it was nice that heís not a completely cartoonish evil adult.

    I think Iím most curious how each would react to knowing that Somaís whole philosophy was earned from his fatherís teachings and that itís not quite the same man they have in their mind anymore. Of course, Azami might just view it has him having weakened or something. Makes me wonder if we could see a Shokugeki between those two at some point. Those all seem like good possibilities. And I could definitely see that as a direction Azami could go with this new knowledge. I'm just glad there isnít a break this week or anything.

    Eh, which was it? I sort of peeked too when I discovered this was still ongoing and was wondering what they plan to do unless the recent events are supposed to be leading to a conclusion soon which the anime will adapt. Iím about halfway through season one now and the apparent twist was interesting, though Iím not buying it as Hakuoroís true identity. Seems too simple. Edit: Yeah, I'd definitely say that was the case now with Niwe revealing it was a setup. I get the feeling he's going to regret drawing out whatever is lurking within Hakuoro.

    Iím getting more and more curious as to whether we might be leaving Beacon sooner than I had thought due to all this suddenly going into overdrive as of last episode. Potentially. Iím going to guess Penny could possibly be alright since sheís a robot unless she sort of ends up reset as a result of this with her personality gone. Phyrra is going to be in bad shape I think and Iím concerned how her fragile state of mind could take that treatment with the Maiden. We also have the tidbit about Raven, which seemed to give the impression that the stinger from last season hasnít happened yet since she only spoke of how she appeared to save her. Iím more interested how he might react to possible Faunus deaths in this whole mess or if it might be a ďnecessary sacrificeĒ kind of thing with him.

    Didnít connect that thought but itís an interesting enough theory as there are a number of notes regarding him in the show and by Monty that could imply something like this. Weíve yet to see him do any fighting after all. Well, next episode is as good a time as any. I guess, but Iím not sure what gave them the impression she was any sort of threat or aware of them is all. It might not matter now that theyíve set things in motion.

    It seems it might have been a personal crisis perhaps, though the comment on ďThings did not go as plannedĒ is troubling. Hopefully heíll be alright regardless. Yeah, Iím concerned about it as well and hopefully theyíll be alright. I almost wish I knew something about animation to help contribute in some way if possible. Theyíve got a lot of talented people though so best wishes to everyone.
