8 days left on Gen 5 (got White preordered), and 5 days left before Duke Nukem's triumphant return.

Then we've got the 3DS coming out not too long after that, and then Portal 2. Anything big I'm missing?

Of 2002.
Ja vuosia myöhemmin
kalvas kaksikko lattialla motellin tihrustelee,
kun sama keiju katossa leijailee.
Kyselevät: "Mikä päivä nyt on?
Tiedätkö sen?"
Kuiskaten laulaa keiju:
"Tämän elämän viimeinen."

Platinum the Trinity gameplay footage for the BB fans.


And BBWiki is right, her Astral is very... friendly, if you catch my drift.
Looks suspiciously like Divine Buster. Including the staff head going all "Shooting Mode".

That makes how many Nanoha references in BlazBlue now?

My work
The tier system in a nutshell:
[spoiler]Tier 6: A cartographer.
Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.
Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.
Tier 1: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything and the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.[/spoiler]

Dragon Age II is being released in a little over a week. That should be at least moderately amusing.

Great, more money to spend on Halo. As though I haven't spent enough on the novels and DLC as-is.

So, there's a few more vocal versions of BlazBlue songs out. Unfortunately, the cast can't sing. :p

All I say is that Makoto's theme sounds OVER NINE THOUSAND more squirrely than Makoto's normal theme...

Finished Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare.

The Four Horses of the Apocalypse are AWESOME.

And I guess it's also kinda fun to be a zombie riding an unicorn. For extra irony purposes.

I'm gonna use that in my campaign, in fact.

So. FFXIII and Duodecim.

Final Fantasy's got all kinds of problems. "10 was too linear, 12 was too freeform, 13 was too linear" being common complaints. Then you account for the storylines following a formula, and the lead characters often having no personality (especially true in 12).


In other words, avoid SE's mainstay titles.

Actually, I find that that 10 was one of the last few 'good' FFs. 12's problem wasn't that it was too freeform, it's that it was too BLAND. It was like a single-player MMO. 13 at least has been delivering a relatively good soundtrack. But aside from that, there's only a couple of REALLY likable characters, and they have next to zero screentime. The rest can be summed up as too bitchy, too moronic, and too "cooler-than-thou".

And Dissidia would be better if they finally got it through their heads that THEIR ENGLISH VAS SUCK DONKEY BALLS.

Dissidia would have been better if ArcSys handled the gameplay instead of SE.


I liked 10 myself (and 10-2 oddly, even ignoring the blatant fanservice). But 12 just plain enraged me (Skies of Arcadia rip-off and all that).

Dragon Age II: Not as wonderful as Bioware's employee reviews would have you believe, not as shitty as a good portion of Metacritic would have you believe.

Discuss.
