2017-02-05 17:42KrimzonStrikerNoticed that, don't push yourself with it in any event, definitely not in a hurry on my end. Anyway, finally installed Microsoft Word and managed to finish both Trails in the Sky games so I should be able to start typing a response in the next few days, look forward to that.
2017-01-18 11:48KrimzonStrikerSorry I've been out of it, and yes I am keeping up with the latest gaming news, good to hear about that sequel as well. Just been busy submerging myself in Trails in the Sky, finished FC now on the first chapter of SC. Also haven't had an opportunity to install any word programs on my new PC yet which makes typing long responses difficult. If I don't get get any office programs installed by the end of the week though I'll just do it on google docs and send out my reply then. Again sorry for the delay and I promise to get back to you on everything by the end of this week. If there are any short message topics you want to talk about right now though do let me know.
2016-12-30 19:36KrimzonStrikerOkay, took care of all those winter purchases for TS FC and SC on steam, also got the complete saga of the Agarest series while I was at it. Now just got to put together this damn PC over the weekend, download the steam app and actually play them...
Kay, let me know if/when you get a chance to purchase/read the Court of the Dead and we'll talk more then. I'm not complaining if that was the case, Shard's certainly an interesting prospect for an already interesting concept.
Well it turns out you won't be getting that much of a reprieve after Horizon with Nier being released on March 7th, hope that's enough time on your end. I'm gonna be busy just watching all these when February hits now that For Honor is beefing up its single-player campaign with gameplay footage and its recent story trailer. Had any time to try out Last Guardian to form your own opinion on the matter? I've been delaying checking it out until I finish going through FFXV. Speaking of cool PS4 news I assume you've heard about LoU Part 2? Would be nice if they could, especially with a hybrid system like this one where weird combinations might screw us over if they're locked. Regardless I'm enjoying the recent gameplay footage coming out of ME:A and the combination of the fluid/updated ME combat system with the freedom of an open world environment, curious to see who fills out the remaining crew roster as well.
I think so as well, especially if we have to wait until the middle of the game to actually meet/talk to said family members. Anyway I'm generally liking what I'm seeing thus far and hope a release date/update for ME:A comes out soon now.
I saw and it's cool seeing Mads in so many different media outlets though I'm wondering how much Kojima has in the budget to pay all these celebrities to appear in his game for any extended amount of time along with whose next on his cast of course. Still have no damn clue what it's about though, oiled sea gut tanks, more umbilical chords and babies in jars haven't clarified that matter unfortunately
Well the recent chapters of Shokugeki delving into the Polar Star and Jo's history are certainly interesting, I figured it was going to be that he was either driven away or he just got fed up and left so it's nice to see one of those scenarios playing out, wonder how/when Jo met Soma's mom now to settle him down from his funk. I also think this Blue competition thing he skipped out on might be the setup for the next arc of Shokugeki once Azami's finally dealt with, looking forward to that in any event along with expanding the character roster/cooking genres to include the world outside Japan hopefully.
Great news about Altair, saw some promos and the animation quality isn't quite as fluid as I'd like so far, still hoping they at least match Arslan when it comes to the combat scenes but regardless I hope this generates more interest/support for the series as a whole. I do hope you get a chance to start reading up on it now though, again I think the scanlators have at least ended their current progress at a nice arc and now would be a good chance to catch up, let me know if do in any event.
Star Wars Rebels hit its mid-season finale so now would be a good time to catch up, Thrawn aside the recent story involving Maul just got very interesting and makes me wonder how they'll use this to resolve Rebels with the rest of the Star Wars franchise now. Also sad news about the actress who played Princess Leia btw, at least from what I heard she finished her scenes for the next movie so that'll be a cool tribute in any event. Makes me lament Han dying in Force Awakens even more now though <_<
Saw both Strange and Moana, enjoyed both quite a bit though it almost felt like Strange was too short and there are so many avenues and questions to be answered going forward now since he a) didn't fix his hands and b) hasn't quite gotten the title of Sorcerer Supreme just yet, hope Mads comes back since I enjoyed his villain and his little dialogue exchange with Strange though I'm looking forward even more to the upcoming confrontation with Mordoe. Regardless I hope Spiderman and Black Panther have as successful a debut now. Moana, if you haven't seen it yet, definitely shot up to one of my top Disney movies, partly cause it was cool seeing Lin-Manuel (writer of Hamilton musical) in it as well as the whole underlying message really resonating with me, hope you've gotten a chance to check it out for yourself and let me know what you thought Oh and one final thing, kind of meh so far on the Ghost in the Shell movie trailer, can't really take the Major's combat costume seriously in live action, looks like pajamas, plus I'm eh on them reinforcing the bi-sexual theme with her since I'm a Kuze/Major fan from Second Gig and I somewhat feel bad for Batou and his obvious crush. We'll see how it goes I guess.
2016-12-30 00:17KrimzonStrikerIt is but I haven't set up my computer yet so it doesn't matter, and again I was gonna wait/hold off until 3rd comes out to get them all. But if I finish installing everything this weekend/upcoming week I'll see if I can't get them both before the sale passes by. Be sure to pick them up on your end if you haven't though. How far along are you with that series btw?
Anyway, turns out you might be right about Orphans, at least as of this half-way point anyway, I might hold off and see myself how the next few episodes turn out. On the bright side this means I can FINALLY finish Origin 4 Also, just fyi but Unicorn got announced for Toonami at 1:00 now, no idea if it's the OVA version of that 0096 one but yea, more Gundam exposure in the U.S. Probably the summer but have to wait and see, wonder what direction they'll go in the franchise this time though.
EDIT: Ah, looked at the tv schedule and it's apparently the 0096 version premiering on Toonami after all, something different for me to watch on top of the dub since I skipped that one.
Ah thank god, just watched that PV you said was going to come out and it looks like you're right after all, I really couldn't take it if that was the case this time though I suppose I SHOULD get around to watching Akito finally as well <_< Anyway I think they advertised this as a proper season from what I've read so that's good at least. Hmm, doesn't look like it in Kallen's case at least based on this rather poor PV I'm watching, looks like she's still going with the same spikey design as before. Well now you've sealed it I gotta finish Akito (I spoiled myself to see if it was safe at the end at least though, so I wonder if we'll see him appear in this new season), I wouldn't be surprised if they introduced such concepts in the OVAs in order to set things up for this third season though. Well as of the latest chapter the urgency for MAKING a decision just got amped up given the new time limit of 13 years for the shifters, wonder if the King power can do something if they can somehow tap into its full potential cause it seems pretty damn cruel to force THAT on Eren when we still don't know if Eren can even USE the power, like maybe they track down this demon dissolve the whole pact for this Titan ability or something. Nice title drop in any event, wondered for awhile what Eren's Titan was going to be called.
I'll take your word for it in that case, need to actually read Mistborn before I think about tackling the other stuff to form an opinion on the matter. That is the worry given how hit or miss a lot of alternate movie adaptations turn out to be though Brandon is pretty popular so maybe they can ride that like Tolkien or GRRM. Kay, no rush since it won't be till next summer at least before the second volume of White Sand comes out. I'll see about finally getting around to that Warcraft Chronicles file upload once my new PC is installed as well.
Given recent news about Altair, newest chapters of Shokugeki, ME:Andromeda news along with various other game titles, my having finally seen Dr. Strange and Moana along with Star Wars Rebels mid-season finale I'm gonna wrap things up in a third/final post tomorrow.
2016-12-28 23:27KrimzonStrikerSorry again for the delay Dann. Got swamped by the damn holiday season at my temp job, hope the holidays went well on your end.
Anyway, the new desktop I got is called the CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Xtreme VR GXiVR8020A Gaming Desktop, I got it off Amazon along with an accompanying monitor, just about fit my budget too so I'm counting my blessings. Again I've been so busy/tired though that I haven't set it up yet. Hopefully by next week I'll have put it together now that my temp job is coming to a close.
Seems like it takes about a year or two but hopefully in celebration of TS 3rd coming over they'll have a sale on its release date, that's what I'm counting on anyway once I purchase the whole series on steam when it happens. Good, no rush given it probably won't be until the beginning of 2018 at the earliest before Xseed manages to import CSIII now that we have a fall 2017 date from Falcom for Japan. And yeah I've seen the news about CSIII, looks like a whole new cast asides from the main protagonist with appearances here and there from the original but I won't delve too deep into anymore details to avoid spoilers. As I've said before I'm okay with it being PS4 exclusive (especially if it allows them to upgrade the game even more with no more hardware limitations) so long as they somehow manage to carry over the save data with our decisions from the previous games on both the PS3 and Vita especially. Speaking of Ao and Zero though it doesn't look too good about a localization anytime soon based on some emails from an Xseed admin posted on gamefaq boards, but at least there's a fan translation patch for Zero being worked on which I'll hopefully catch on youtube at some point along with a blog that's summarizing Ao. Given how long this seems to be off I hope if Xseed ever does the Crossbell games they do the Vita remake version, that might be easier than converting the old PSP version to Steam like they did the Sky trilogy as well.
EDIT: Scratch the Evo Vita import prospect, just read a comment that another company, not Falcom, is in charge of those and apparently they want to be paid extra for the license which a small publisher like Xseed is unlikely to do, guess all we can hope for is if they get the stick out of their butts and lower the price someday once they've exhausted selling in Japan or Xseed someday gets around to converting Zero/Ao to Steam in the lull after the Cold Steel series is finished. Again here's hoping that fan translation patch comes through for Zero and hopefully Ao as well at some point <_<
Well as of chapter 7 of Vol. 4 of RWBY things have proceeded at an interesting turning point for all of our protagonist, a lot of hints but now I wonder what kind of revelations they have in store for us in the upcoming second half. Let me know how much you're caught up on it and we can dive into more detail the next round.
Indeed, Legion is proceeding along nicely for me, and speaking of updates you see the big stink about the revelation in the newest holiday comics for Overwatch about Tracer?
Good to see new updates along with the individual part member DLC is on the way, should be interesting to watch, how are you finding the game so far in any event? Haven't been able to watch too many of your videos just yet but hopefully that'll change once the weekend hits. Also I know you commented that you prefer sleeping in the inns but do please keep trying out the various foods/discover new recipes alright? They even have that dang pastery from Brotherhood Ignis was always trying to recreate for Noct like we talked about before And yeah, I can understand your feelings on Stella but it was the CONCEPT of her that I felt would have brought a sense of fresh air and was a missed opportunity in my book, ah well, no point griping, just gotta move on unfortunately and hope they come back to the idea of her at some point in some future FF.
Cutting it off here, hopefully I can finish things off by tomorrow.
2016-11-29 19:30KrimzonStrikerGot it, but again I think the more conventional plot of the first Mistborn trilogy that helps introduce all the metaphysical elements of that world would be better suited for a movie if they choose that series. Again I don't know enough about the Cosmere to be sure what would suit the big screen though so I'll trust your judgement on the matter and hope they do a good job. Any luck getting a hold of White Sand yet btw, it's actually a rather quick read thanks to being a comic so it shouldn't hamper you too much for time I think.
Can't see them ending on that kind of downer note for the rebels though, plus the last few seasons have been 20 episodes plus and we're only hitting episode 10 by this coming week, I'd really like it if we could stop it with the fillers and move the main story with Thrawn a bit further along before the end. Alright, I'll see what I can do to upload it then, a bit busy this week so hopefully stuff opens up in the next but we'll see.
Cool, hope you enjoy it. And video game but that's kind of moot now since they seem to have decided to go back to the drawing board with the idea, just have to enjoy their other supplementary material. True, mayhaps they come up with her after the decided to end their video game, just have to see what other releases come out for Court of the Dead to better flesh out Shard's role in all this.
Neat, between this and Lelouch it'll be good to hear Jun again at the very least. Kay, keep it in mind though when you're planning your gaming schedule. I believe so as well, and only Last Guardian is exclusive at that. I can respect that, especially since you'll play Horizon well before I ever will. Sounds very interesting, though it'd be nice if they confirmed you can reset/change up your skills like you said, otherwise we'll have to be very cautious in how we choose. And helps freely pave the way for whole future sequels in the ME franchise.
EDIT: Been reading and listening to videos about the info from game informer on ME:A, finding this whole male and female Ryder are twins and are both in game at the same time and be interacted with if you don't choose the other, along with the fact their father will be there to add to that whole family dynamic which will be interesting to see.
Well as of the latest chapter of Shokugeki things just got interesting, I wonder what the rules/consequences of a team battle will be and how that plays out in our previous discussion regarding getting seats, or what each side would have to put up for such a thing. Also nice to see certain characters returning and how their interactions with the rest of the cast will be like in the upcoming chapters
Regarding the various movies I'll have to do some juggling, Strange is still up in the air while we're trying to nail down Moana sometime next weekend on my end, see if you can't see that one with your family btw if you're meeting up with them now that the holidays are closing in.
2016-11-29 19:28KrimzonStrikerAppreciate it and hopefully. In lighter news I finally ordered my new PC, once it gets up and running my posts will hopefully be a lot more frequent.
Pretty much, plus they don't have to deal with the headache and costs of retail logistics and advertisement for an older model game. That's my plan as well, in fact it'll be the first game I get on my new gaming PC once that's installed in December hopefully. Not a bad idea but take you're time enjoying all the various story elements and collectible reading material as some of that ties into CS later on. Yeah, still I'm a bit tentative about CSIII specifically on whether it'll carry the save files from the previous games on all platforms, especially if there's no Vita version, all I'll say is that I CSII had a couple of decisions I hope to see play out in III, plus I hope they continue with the same protagonists unlike what 3rd did with Sky FC and SC as CSII left off with quite a few story elements with that group still needing to be wrapped up that I don't want to delay with a whole new main character. No doubt, but I don't think there's a need to rush too much, make progress and a schedule of completion yes but not to rush, given we're still likely a year away with no firm release date just yet.
Kay, let me know in your next post what you're thoughts are so we can finally start diving deep into what's going on in RWBY. Hah, I remember doing that exact same thing last year, reminds me I have to finally finish Kabenari among some other series actually.
Well FFXV is finally out so I guess we'll know all that soon enough though it'd be a shame in Ravus' case given he had some interesting build up until now, and yeah I'd heard it was Ifrit as well though no idea if he's someone else's summon or if he's acting on his own. Maybe you're right but I hope they do indeed have a plan/vision for Blizzard's future going forward since they won't have Metzen to rely on anymore for that, we'll have to see depending on what new story material they come out for the various franchises to get a better sense of that.
Yeah, if it'd been a full tutorial or a way to give you a taste of Noctis at full power it would have been far more useful, so we'll have to see how the full scene plays out near the end of the game. Personally I hope not and they strike an even balance between the two storylines while merging them both together at times. My thoughts as well unfortunately and why I lament still that they wasted so much time and resources with making a damn trilogy for FFXIII instead. I get that, my regret is we lost out on Stella's unique concept as a heroine and the fresh air she'd have brought to the FF franchise as a whole. Suppose we just have to move on though. And good to hear about the Japanese dub being included, I do hope more games make that an option in general going forward.
EDIT: Ah, you're uploading FFXV to your channel? Appreciate that, and don't worry about the length of time honestly, like you said this and Last Guardian are the only foreseeable big releases until February. Just let me know when they're up.
Yeah, though it's early in season 2 and right now there seems to be a lot of tension/build up so who knows how it'll all turn out by the end. Well Loum's something to look forward to anyway, and I mean to finish off Origin by the end of this week hopefully. Still curious as to what new Gundam series Sunrise has in store for us next year.
Speaking of Sunrise I'm both glad and apprehensive about this Season 3 announcement after all these years, glad that we finally confirmed Lelouch lives even if it did take 8 bloody years, apprehensive as to where they'll take the story and how I'm still not the biggest fan of the Akito CG Knightmares and how that'll translate into Season 3. Just have to wait and see.
Yeah, but again got to resolve the issues of the present in AoT first and foremost. Still given his intial reaction to all these revelations Eren seems to be having a crisis of faith so we'll just have to see how he comes out of it once the backstory is finished next chapter hopefully. Got it, though not like it matters now that she's dead too other then how it'll shape Eren going forward. And a boring story so I'm fully expecting an all out military clash, at least for now and depending on how the citizens of the Wall deal with the Titan infestation on the island before they can even think of taking the offensive.
2016-11-22 23:32KrimzonStrikerVery true, again hopefully Eren manages to tap in to those memories and gives us some closure on that matter. Exactly, so for now let's just consider what the next course of action should be and we'll worry about the ancient past when it's relevant to do so. I think so as well though I do hope it doesn't hamper Eren's resolve to keep doing what's necessary in order to end this. Ah, no I meant Grisha's first wife, didn't remember her name and didn't know what to call her in relation to Eren, sorry for the confusion. Pretty much if the attitude of that fat officer that killed Grisha's sister is indicative of all those Marley mainlanders which based on their government policy toward the Eldian seems to be the case, so it's kill or be killed, or at least inflict a serious enough defeat on the Marley that they'd actually contemplate a real peace settlement on equal and liveable terms.
Haven't read any of those yet, though I do want to get around to Mistborn eventually, though isn't Wax and Wayne that sequel way in the future of when the first story ends and appears more side story detective-ish? Kay, looking forward to what you think and how well you find the comic format works with White Sand.
Essentially, and I look forward to seeing Thrawn's plan in action soon hopefully, and makes the wait for Zahn's novel all the more enticing. Hmm, I've never used the file sites before, though mega has always given me less problems with ads and viruses compared to others so it shouldn't be too bad... need to convert the file into a rar though since I got it direct download from a torrent.
Yup. And cool, do let me know what you think once you get to read the whole thing. In the game, no, from the demo (which was a mix between Fire Emblem and that Darkest Dungeon game party based tactical rpg style) that I saw your character is a totally customizable original or another newly arrived dead soul. The Shard character seems like she'll be part of their other media material as they progress with the main story, though I'm quite intrigued on how that all plays out.
As with most Persona MC's, still good on him for landing the role regardless. Hmm, I only have the Japanese release listed in February while it says only 2017 for everywhere else so you might have more time with Horizon than you think (speaking of you seen those PS4 live commercial ads recently, is it just me or are they using a few too many games that haven't come out yet to promote themselves? ) Sweet, it'll be cool to hear Jun Fukuyma as well in that case Kay, just thought it was interesting to hear/get more info on the other areas Aloey will be seeing beyond the ones in the game play trailers. Is that so? Do you mean you can do hybrid classes or change in and out between classes mid-game in ME:A? If so then sweet, I always found it annoying you had to be certain classes to get a specific scene or something. Yeah, but it makes sense, it's scary to think about but again all things like how first trilogy ended this was probably be the only thing they could do so no contradictions arised. It's mostly that I can't see Takumi and Megumi (however good they are) managing to take any seats given the destruction of their other fellow rebels like Ryo and Alice so I'm thinking Soma will how to rely on getting the ex-elite ten members like Isshiki and Kuga back into power instead. About what I expected, sad they put Mads behind the eight ball with a limited role like that in the first place but I'm sure between him and Cumberbatch I'll enjoy it nonetheless, plus I plan to watch that new Disney movie Mona with my sister around the same time as well so it'll be a fun way to send off 2016 next month.
2016-11-22 23:31KrimzonStrikerThanks, it's not much but it's something at least, also enrolled into a job placement program that should kick in once my seasonal position is over so hopefully I find something permanent soon. Eh, that I was generally expecting, but again he can't just do whatever he wants so if they're that bad hopefully they screw up and we have an easier time pushing him out for it, again just got to bunker down for now. Moving on.
Hmm, you are right but I don't see much point in getting that version it if they didn't also do a Vita version for the 1st game as well and leave that one a PSP only copy, despite the backwards compatibility so I'm sticking with the PC version no matter what now. Still, I suppose this mean's there's hope that the Vita version for 3rd will come out at some point, though it'd be better if XSEED released all three of the HD Remake versions for Vita that Japan did recently and who knows if that'll ever happen. In other news a leaked image and recent comments on Cold Steel III have come out today and put the CSIII tentatively on a late summer/early fall of 2017 release, given it's done so well for them and my own understanding from forum discussions XSEED will likely jump on this immediately and I'm hopefully we'll get the English release sometime in early 2018 at the latest. I hope you catch up with the series a bit sooner than that though, specifically the CS games, so we have something to talk about, I'll try to do that same when I get my new PC finally and play the Sky ones as well.
Let me know what you think, as I said this 4th episode was very interesting in terms of new context for the RWBY series.
Yeah, though it was just a rehash of their first artwork poster in a portrait version rather than landscape, here's a link. He does seem to be shaping up to be that though where that leaves the Emperor and Luna's brother is still a mystery, plus the fire god the aged Noctis and co. were fighting in the first scene of the demo. Indeed, well all I can do is sit tight and see what Blizzard has in store for us, a bit worried since Metzen retired but I'm hopeful with Starcraft and Zahn's new novel at least plus all those new online/unlockable comics that Starcraft will get something more story wise after Covert Ops, and Diablo should be fine I imagine, there's no way a sequel and/or expansion isn't in the cards eventually given where Reaper of Souls left off.
Eh, just one of those brief foreshadowing scenes to hook players as to how we arrive at that point in the game I imagine. The mystical side of the plot has been rather obscure though compared to all the political aspects. Well I don't know what that protocol is for FFXV in this case but I do see a few youtube posters who somehow scored the game early from friends or something so I expect it was the case here, aside from all the early press-release copies Square might have sent out as well. *Sigh* Well I guess it was too much to hope it'd be a smooth transition once they switched out Nomura and went a full makeover into FFXV, at the very least I wish they'd kept him on the story board and stuck with his original vision cause dammit I still miss Stella... ah well, at least the impressions are good overall so it should be fun to see once it's finally released.
Okay, not a bad strategy, honestly I don't blame you because apparently the director had to pull the writer back from going too dark in IBO's first season ending because he wanted it to be relatively happy, no idea if those gloves will stay on for the second season though so we'll see, I'll keep you posted in any event. And hey, Gundam Origin 4 came out so that's something to look forward to, let me know your thoughts when you get a chance to watch, I'll do the same on my end hopefully by the end of this week once thanksgiving passes. Loum Arc is set for Fall of next year, and will cover 2 volumes worth of material, ending in 2018 apparently.
2016-11-21 13:28KrimzonStrikerThat's neat, and it shouldn't be that difficult to adapt given how closed off/self-contained his works are within his universe, that's actually what made White Sand such an easy read actually, and I wish him the best. Let me know what you think once you get a chance to check the comic out btw
To be fair it's mostly been build-up but in terms of Lars' portrayal of Thrawn so far it's been spot-on and something you should check out eventually. Well, before I start talking more about the books did we ever address the issue of getting you Warcraft Chronicle? I admit it's more difficult now that kickass torrents went down and I'm still running into the same trouble of sending the file I do have to you given it's rather large size.
Cool, let me know when you do, a lot of interesting things to discuss once you do get a chance to read Court of the Dead, which will provide the necessary context hopefully for a lot of their supplementary material. It seems like an interesting world so I hope it receives as much support as possible to keep going.
Well that's cool, though how much difference shouting attacks or doing battle cries is still to be determined. Yeeaahh, don't think that's happen as fun as that might be, I mean we can only push they whole English speakers in Japan so far I think Sad about the delay but at least it'll give you some time with Horizon now. Oh cool, they have Japanese audio options with English subs? Well there's been a few new trailers for Horizon actually, one with a behind the scenes description about the other environments in the game aside from the jungle/plains that we've seen so far. Yeah, haven't checked out Gameinformer on ME:A either, will probably do that after I finally finish watching Dishonored 2 or something, looks interesting so far based on the trailers even though it's surreal it'll take place hundreds of years after the original trilogy ended, they'll truly be on their own in Andromeda which is a bit frightening, like that they finally showed the default male MC btw. Yup, though as of the latest chapter the stakes got raised pretty high with all those expulsions, wonder if Soma's plan to reverse that will work out exactly as he plans, personally I feel he needs to start enlisting the former E10 members like Kuga to have a realistic shot of pulling it off. No not yet unfortunately, hopefully I will be able to in early December though, can you at least tell me if Mads did well with what he was given as a one off villain?
