  1. Past hour
  2. Great work, let us know what you think of II when you complete it
  3. Today
  4. Ooph. The third boss of Tokyo Mirage Sessions is a tough-y. He’s my first real challenge. Don’t get me wrong, he’s very weak. Given the opportunity to run roughshod, you could defeat him in maybe...four or five turns. No, he’s tough because instead of having weak but annoying enemies defend him, he defends them. So the only way you can pick them off is by using AOE attacks that target everyone and hopefully Sessioning them until they faint. It’s also very important to knock these enemies out fast because you don’t want them Sessioning on you. You’re likely to lose a party member in one turn if this happens. Another problem is that, I believe, Itsuki is the only party member who can Session on the boss. I actually would have beaten him in my first try had I realized Attack Mirrors were a thing and could be used to deflect the powerful attack he uses every third turn. I have a vague strategy in mind but there are so many variables going on that it’ll be tricky. I may level grind certain party members today so I can get their Radiant Unity skill that allows them to Session even when they’re benched.
  5. Pardon me, boss, but I'd like to submit an update request to "Brother Jaybird", if you please.
  6. I dunno, I think Cravin' Craven sounds like an appropriately DQish name.
  7. Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash today. Please hug your loved ones extra hard tonight.
  8. Now that I’ve finished Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, I’ve gotten back to DQ11 S. I don’t remember the last time I played the game, but it’s good to be back. As of now I’m in Act 2 and have joined up with Rab again and headed off to Phnom Nonh. Just ran into Sylvando again and made it to town...and I was dying laughing at the changes to the parade. The hero dancing along is funny enough. But Hendrik AND Rab wearing Dragon Quest III Jester outfits was hysterical! It was nice to finally hear Sylvando’s theme in symphonic form as well, and I was wondering if it was ever going to pop up in game. Now to see what’s going on in Phnom Nonh! Also, someone PLEASE tell me you can permanently get the Jester outfits for either Rab or Hendrik. PLEASE TELL ME YOU CAN. I will so keep Hendrik in that damn outfit for the entire game just because it’s so funny.
  9. Yesterday
  10. Alright, I finished off Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze! There’s another game off the list of “Games Stuck in Limbo.” The last few levels of DK Island were tough but fun. The final boss was a satisfying fight but man, it does have some rather tough difficulty for no reason at the final phase. I suppose it would since it’s the final boss, but they could have toned it back just a bit. Anyway, I managed to open up the secret 7th world and finished off those three difficult stages, and Hard Mode was unlocked! I’m thinking I’ll wait before trying to tackle all the levels again on Hard Mode what with all the challenges that come with it, but being able to play as any of the Kongs instead of always playing as DK is a welcome reward. I’m glad I finally finished the game. Definitely a great addition to the Donkey Kong Country series, and I’m glad I got it up for the Switch last year. I’m looking forward to coming back to the game in the future.
  11. Yeah, I loved the old English style they used throughout the game! "Thou art dead."

    Switch RPGs...?

    Like 9/10 times when it comes to LRG they haven’t even gone into manufacturing yet by the end of the pre-order period, and they almost never have them immediately in-hand. It usually takes maybe a month or two. The Missing won’t be shipped out until 2-4 months after the pre-order date, according to their website, for example. It’s best to just forget about them until you get the email saying they’ve shipped.
  13. You probably ordered them back in 19-dikity-2. We have to use dikity because the Kaiser stole our word for 20.

    Switch RPGs...?

    Still waiting on Mary Skelter 2 & Omega Labyrinth. Geeze, didn't I order them like a decade ago?
  15. I remember in my 20s, often one of the things I'd give up for Lent was eating until it was uncomfortable. People used to giggle a bit when I told them that, but oh man I'd do that so often!
  16. Courage and wit have served you well. Patience too as I'm assuming you did the original NES version! Nice!
  17. While not a boss yet, first you must enter his room, and after breaking his cookie pot, take his cookie. Then you get random Cookie Monster battles, as he attempts to get his cookie back. Then you must eat it, morphing him into Craven Craving Cookie Monster. Then you enter a portal to the Snorlax realm where if you avoid battle long enough, the Craven Craving Cookie Monster is forced to sit down, and thinking a giant flower is a cookie, proceeds to eat it, causing him to swallow a Lorax. The resulting mixture of Henson + Seuss brings about the Mad Craving Cookie Monster. You must then escape back to the portal from whence you came, and in the process of fleeing a cookie monster that wants to eat your party members (anytime he catches up to you, and starts a battle, he will eat a party member). From there, enter the lairs of Oscar and Elmo, where a cutscene will trigger. Only when he eats Oscar and Elmo, then mutates into Snuffleupagus for the first form, then Giant Tickle You Elmo for the second, then Can Eater Oscar for the third. Final form is Cruel Cookie Craving Smunster...he heals by eating cookies, and attempts to eat your characters at random, at least up to two at a time.
  18. I admit I slept on this one, but in hindsight, I should immediately have been on board with a fighting game where you can be Tekkaman Blade! Maybe I can find it sometime!
  19. In the final dungeon, I was doing nothing but 1-10 damage with attacks. It was that way in the final boss (of version 1) too. I was level 60 so I thought I was prepared. Also, I die super easily and my party members did all the work. This is starting to kill the game for me so it might be time to change classes. any suggestions?
  20. Pokemon Masters does something interesting in that it brings a bunch of never-met characters together, which creates some new duos I hadn't thought of and inspires thought of more: Blaine and Flannery, Iris and Pryce. Much like the DQ Heroes series. I read every word on that can in Warburton's voice.
  21. 10 years ago today we got one heck of a great fighting game from Capcom here in the West - Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars. This was the game that got me into more traditional fighting games, and it’s been one of my favorite games to this day. It got overshadowed by Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but many people will claim this was one of the best games for the Wii. It has a fun roster of characters and some great gameplay, and it’s crazy to think it’s been 10 years since I went and picked up my copy. I still have my wall scroll poster of the third image hanging up at my place, and the official fight stick for the game too. Happy birthday, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. You didn’t shine quite as bright as Marvel vs. Capcom, but you are still one of the best versus fighting games out there.
  22. Constructive criticism: should've put the words up top so we could clearly see the ? on the box. Him being a ??? monster and all. Good point. Give me a second. Edit: Here we go @Plattym3, attempt #2:

  24. I'm going to call B.S. on that. You're totally pulling our leg, right?
  25. That's disappointing. I'd heard it discussed and figured I'd give it a try one day, but that's not a ringing endorsement when I have close to 100 other games I already own to play.
