  1. my favorite character in bravely is derosso because after discovering that people thought he was a vampire, he spent literally years learning how to turn into a bat, grow fangs, and even shows up in a puff of smoke every time he appears. what a nerd

      its even implied he tried to drink blood but didnt because he hated the smell

       

      why is derosso so extra

  2. Weiss "Punished" Schnee

  3. Pokemon Mystery Dungeon. All of them. Except Gates, that was kinda a shitty one. They are so underappreciated; they have great gameplay, godlike plots and characters, and a spectacular postgame.
  4. Jesus, 'Serpent Eating the Ground' may be my new favorite final boss theme. It's so perfect.

      It has everything; ominous 'latin' chanting, atmosphere, leitmotifs, that one part where it's randomly happy to give a feeling of hope... all my favorites in one song

    2. Pinkazoid

      Bravely Default's soundtrack is pretty great.

       

      The Ba'Al theme is my favorite

  5. Is FF15 any good? It looks good, but ive heard modern FFs have been iffy.

      Best theme ingame, well maybe second to the Tapus.

      I think Guzma's is best, second to the Sol/Luna battle.

      I've encountered Jangmo-o few times, buut I totally agree with you :) <3 That's why I stuck with my Zygarde 10% form :P

  8. On the timer, the Song of Reverse Time (play the Song of Time backwards) halves the time of the 3 days, which made it rather easy to do everything you need to do in a cycle. Song of Soaring allows you to get to all the places you need in that cycle quickly, notebook in the remake keeps track of everyone's schedule so you'll only need guides for like, Anju and Kafeki, and the Song of Double Time gets you to those times quicker. The only time you'll feel threatened by the timer is likely during the Great Bay Temple. For the 'losing your money' issue, there's a bank where you can deposit your money so it stays next cycle. As for ammo, it's generally easy to come by and arrows are pretty cheap. The only thing money-wise i'm ever worried about was buying mana potions each cycle, which aren't all too expensive anyway. I personally loved the timer system. The ways they set it up allowed for each day to feel like an actual, real day - shops were closed on different days, people got progressively more scared as the third day approached, different events and such happened on each day, etc. Clock Town felt so alive, because everybody seemed to be going about their lives as if it was an actual town - you could see the construction work being done (and watch it be finished), you could talk to npcs each day and watch their mental state change (personal favorite is visiting the "fearless" dojo mentor in Clock Town about an hour before impact), go to a band that is only coming on a certain day, fend off an alien invasion before they mindfuck Romani and thus you can do different events on the farm for the next two days... I adore the system and I still do today. The game isn't supposed to feel like Ocarina - a cheery, free, adventurous game. It's supposed to feel macabre, hopeless, and claustrophobic. The timer is probably the biggest reason why it has such a dark atmosphere - it's supposed to make you stressed and hopeless at times, and that's why I love it. Easily my favorite Zelda game. Also as for the Souls series - "single mistake screwing up an hour of progress" - i don't really think so. I've played through both Bloodborne and DS3, and they gave you checkpoints generally near each other, and easy to memorize attack patterns/routes so dying once or twice wasn't a big deal. I can understand being anxious about getting your Souls/Blood Echoes back, but in BB I can get about 300k in 15 minutes with chalices and in DS3 there are multiple grinding spots. Can't say anything for DS1 though.

  12. Again, I totally agree with this post in every way! I love my Wii U and PS4, but the PS4 felt run of the mill (don't regret getting it though, Bloodborne is too good), and the Wii U definitely didn't reach half of its potential. Hopefully the Switch will learn from the U's mistakes.
  13. @@Kyoshi, IMO, I think it fares extremely well to the Xbone and the PS4. The graphics look very similar, imo the Switch has better ones, and the Switch is portable to boot. Although I haven't seen the graphics in person so I have no clue if that's what they're actually like. Though, I will admit, the X1 and PS Quadruple (tfw no chad) are past gen systems compared to the Switch, so we'll see how it fares up against the Scorpio later!
  14. Starter leaks have been confirmed, then? gg denial"""""friends""""" on /vp/ So far, after looking at the dex, I have to say design-wise, and lore-wise I like Type: Null. Actually, understatement; I LOVE Type:Null. I don't like that thing on the top of Silvally's head, though, but I adore the lore behind it! Probably one of my favorite pokemon released... well, ever so far. And Popplio's evolution is adorable as ever, definitely choosing that.
  15. @@OmegaBeamOfficial, Great post, I agree with pretty much everything you said! Although the Switch may not be as powerful as Scorpio (although I will admit, more power is good), we should wait until we see the quality of games it produces before passing judgement on if it's worth or not. The Skyrim FPS downgrade was also barely noticeable to me at a glance, but that just may be because I don't put much thought on FPS if it isn't a pure multiplayer game like Overwatch. Also, as a response to your question on the other post (i didn't want to mention you twice lol), I believe Kyoshi was referring to Wii (U). However, 'terrible home console' all rests on opinion; I thoroughly enjoyed my Wii (U) so I don't think either was a terrible home console. However, at first I thought Kyoshi was referring to the sales of the system, which the Wii U bombed on, but the Wii had far from a 'terrible' sale. @@Kyoshi, As someone said in the twitter comments, that could really indicate anything imo. Bethesda all said that they're bringing games to the Switch, or at least heavily implied it, so we def know we're getting some Bethesda games in there. They never really say anywhere that Skyrim isn't coming either; they're just not confirming any specific titles. I get that you're wary of this next system, but i'm not suggesting you give Nintendo a free pass; if anything, I suggest waiting it out and see how the gameplay/games/graphics/whatevs of the Switch fare to others and see if it truly is a 'terrible' system or not. We don't have enough information at this time to determine if the Switch is shit or not, so i'm going to wait to see if it really is or isn't.
  16. @, tbh i'd guess middle 200s. Maybe 250? I'm super excited for it, honestly! I know i'm gonna get Zelda for the U, so hopefully it has backwards compatibility, and that Splatoon looks gorgeous! Also, since when could you customize hairstyles? Patch or Splatoon 2? I'll wait until next Christmas the earliest to see if it's worth it. But so far? It looks great, and I love the portability aspect of it! Well, to be fair, it is just the release of the system. I would like more release IPs as well, but we can't expect a working demo/teaser of all new Nintendo IPs for the next system on the system release. Maybe they'll release them as time passes and gets closer to the release, or after it. I'm staying hopeful!
  17. blizzard is such a tease honestly, just release sombra already ffs

    1. Red Riot

      Yes I know right

  18. First Game: Celeste was my favorite, but I loved Chihiro and Mukuro. Ships: Asahina x Sakura, Celeste x Kirihiri, Taka x Mondo Second Game: CHIAKI. Sonia and Gundham were also part of my favorites. Ships: Hajime x Nagito, Peko x Mikan, Chiaki x Junko Anime: J U Z O and Ryota. Also Seiko. Ships: Juzo x Munakata, Candy Girl x Seiko
  19. I'm actually playing Conquest on Lunatic and i'm up to the ninja chapter. It's as bad as it sounds. Chapter 10 was insane, thanks based Haitaka, and the only reason i won was because Elise dodged two 90% killing blows. The Asura chapter was annoying as fuck man Later in Conq. Lunatic, Iago gets to infinitely spam the Hexing Rod, ninjas get infinite chain which mean debuffs stack (get ready for -30 def, -40 atk, and -20 spd because of this broken ass skill), Takumi practically gets a 100% chance to rend that heaven, the fox chapter is even more stupidly difficult because of buffs, and pretty hilarious rally happy characters (there's a guy duing the great wall of takumi chapter with every rally except spectrum lol)
  20. This beauty. This was honestly such a spectacular fight. - A+ intro; the way the dancer slowly untangled herself from the ceiling was chilling. And even more so if you fought her before; I was summoning for Vordt to farm embers and someone went the opposite direction into the dancer. She sure left an impact on me after killing me in one hit. It caused my anticipation for a fair fight with her to rise. - She's gorgeous in general; the way she moves, the veil, her sword(s), it's all perfect. - Sad, sad lore. I'm a sucker for that. - Very, very difficult. All of her attacks do an insane amount of damage, she has a terrifying grab (probably the best in the game), and in her second phase her combos feel almost endless. Her combos look gorgeous as well. You feel so satisfied when you beat her. - She's so much fun to fight, though; her combos are just so fun to dodge through, and her aggressiveness in the second phase means you'll be filled with anticipation the whole fight. In her first phase, although she's more subdued, she can unleash some terrifying attacks (aka her grab with that weirdass hitbox) - 10/10 boss music; although its very simplistic, it intensifies in the second phase. Also her footsteps echo and you can hear her breath, which adds to the music and makes her feel so graceful. - Gorgeous boss arena; it starts to go on fire in the second phase which I thought was a very nice touch. - When you finally defeat her, you get her armor and her weapons (or a miracle). Her armor looks absolutely stunning and her weapons, although not the best, are a blast to use. Overall an amazing boss.
  21. Bloodbourne's fun but a little creepy, I honestly think everyone is gonna stab me in the back

  24. Pokemon Black/White. - Introduced infinite TMs. - Introduced Hidden Abilities - Has some of my favorite Pokemon characters in it, like N, Ghetsis and Elesa. - Actually very interesting and intriguing plot, with more than a few plot twists I was genuinely impressed by. These being N being the king of Team Plasma (i thought it was obvious he was a member, but didn't expect him to be the leader), Ghetsis being the biggest asshole ever created, and you and N being the heroes of the dragons. There were a few other welcome surprises as well, such as Caitlin from DPP being a member of the Elite Four, Cynthia, the first gym having three leaders, etc. - On another note, Team Plasma had a rad theme and pretty understandable motivations on the surface. - Introduced Triple Battles, and to a lesser extent Rotation Battles - Allowed the player to battle the E4 in any order, which is great because I can get the pushovers out of the way before going onto the more difficult ones. - Don't lie, the N battle at the end where both of your dragons one-on-oned at the start was badass. You actually got to fight the other half of the legendary duo, which was really cool. - Sprite animations. Those games were my childhood. Really got me into storytelling. Ending makes me cry every time. Gameplay's fun too. Grovyle and Celebi still hold a special place inside my heart, and so does Dusknoir after the last special episode. These games are so underrated >_<
  25. IT'S NEVER OGRE Welp I never liked Shrek all that much so it's not a big deal for me.
