  1. Back from a long absence, and feels good to come back.

  2. That's me, also! Welcome! I'm back from a long absence, myself. I'm glad to have you around! I've been playing Dragon Quest games since it was Dragon Warrior on the NES in 1989, and with help from my forum avatar, an NPC from DQ2, I never let anyone forget it either. What's your favorite Mega Man title, and what's your favorite Kid Icarus Uprising weapon?
  3. I feel wrong that I can't help but hear the "Quest transgressed with finesse" jingle when I see that pessimistic ink come down.
  4. Anybody ever seen this thing? Just throwing an image of it out there. If I decide I want it bad enough I might look into the actual cost of it or others like it. It's funny. "'ello mate! 'ave you seen me 'atchet! Ev'ry man should 'ave an' atchet and' 'ammer ta 'and!"
  5. My current anime jams are Armored Trooper VOTOMS, Carole and Tuesday, and fansubs of Beastars. I'm also ordering the blu-rays of Yu Yu Hakusho soon.
  6. We've missed you. I put up signs around the neighborhood, but no one called. To be honest, I picked the dumbest reason EVER to stay off the boards. It's the massive bloat in my backlog. I have the nasty6 habit of getting my next game before I've even finished the previous one... and I KNOW I'm not the only one to do this... but... it just felt so ridiculous to me. I felt so flighty, mercurial and foolish, I kinda drifted off in shame. Why come to a place to post about my doings when I'm not getting anything done? I'm glad I got over myself enough to come back though
  7. The lost dog has come back to town! Wishing you all happy holidays as I finally start playing DQ11S after so long waiting! I have missed this place!
  8. Just started my game of DQ11S last night. REALLY late to the party, but I tend to buy a huge glut of games. My backlog is embarassing. I will devote as much of myself to this as I can for the next month or so. Wish me luck! Also glad to be back!
  9. Some bite. Not me though. I wag. Also hope you won't find me rude in asking, but when you say "since 5 years", do you mean since five years ago, or since you were five years old? No matter which way you meant, I welcome you!
  10. I know it's not a Ghibli film by any means, but if we're talking about anime in american movie theaters, I'd LOVE to go to a screening of Summer Wars. Hands down, that's my favorite feature length anime movie. A dear, late friend of mine showed it to me one fateful summer, and I loved every minute. That's not just furry bias towards King Kazma, either. It's a vividly animated, well written story that has a lot in it I love. It chokes me up more and more every time I watch it, I swear. I break down happily during the climactic moments. Not ashamed to admit it!
  11. Oh yay! Thank you all! I've been out most of the day with my husband, and came back to all these well wishes! * wags * Time for more EOX!
  12. Got bad news.. my diabetes is leading to kidney damage.  Yeah, I needed THIS 2 days before my birthday, and on the 3rd anniversary of a friend's death to kidney failure...  😕

    1. DarknessYami


      sad to hear that. take care of your health and do regular checkups. kidney failure can lead to dialysis and it's very expensive

  13. Thank you very much. I was hoping to make this a denial team, as you suggest, but I didn't understand fully the downsides of my frontliners. Guard Order is always my Sovereign's first move these days, and Nerve Circle is my Arcanist's go-to for now. I like how my Imperial goes last sometimes, as it ensures the Attack Orders go through, but mobs are my biggest problem because I lack fast, efficient damage for now until the Pugilist and Gunner get higher in level. Medic Bullet is in there at Lv 2 so far. Arm and Leg Snipe shots are lv 2, Rapid Fire at LV 3. Pugi has Lv 2 in the binding pun
  14. How's your playthrough going? TBH, could be better. Personal issues slowed me down, but I'm still in the fight! Im averaging Lv 7, and I've got an Imperial and a Pugilist in the front, and a Gunner, Sovereign and Arcanist in back. The big problem we seem to have is the squishiness of my front line, coupled with little dedicated healing. My heaviest hitter is also my slowest (the Impy). This leads to a collapse of at least one frontliner before I can win the fight. I may have to do more grinding to make the team stand viably on it's merits, it seems. Also I agree with Yangus: th
  15. I believe I shall reserve judgement on the Hero as sub-class for now until I know what I'm doing with the 5th member, in terms of filling out rows. If I decide on a 3rd support class (likely) then Afterimage will work fine. If i choose a 3rd frontliner, instead, then I will sub the Pugilist as something else. I'll do more homework when I have the game in paw tomorrow.
  16. I was going to subclass my Pugilist as Hero, and make that my primary source of physical damage, with the Afterimage power I've read about. Gunner sounds good. I'm also supposing that Sovereign is the opposite of Arcanist. One gives "orders" that buff and heal, where Arcanist does "circles" that debuff enemies and heal allies. Nightseeker seems to be Dark Hunter 2.0, which is nice. I think I may actually try a Pugilist, an Imperial up front, and a Sovereign and Arcanist, in the back. The 5th slot I could use another idea for.
  17. * blinks * Pardon me, did you say 7th or 8th Labyrinth? Are they all 4-6 floors like the labyrinths in EO4? My, but won't I have my work cut out for me. EO4 was the first EO I actually completed the main story of, so maybe if Nexus is similarly structured, I've got a good shot at sticking to it this time. I really hope I do. I don't know why I'm so easily distracted from my awesome games. I really gotta actually finish one that's not retro once in a while! I'll do my best! Curious, Platty, what party build have you used for your review? Maybe I'll get a solid idea beyond my
  18. Review lineup for Etrian Nexus, although I'm quite sure I know who in this thread is getting the game already (looking specifically at the twinsies, @YangustheLegendaryBanditand @Plattym3). Firstly, one of my favorite review sites, Nintendo Life. NL has hardly ever steered me wrong with regard to good Switch and 3DS titles, and here's their glowing praise for Nexus: http://www.nintendolife.com/reviews/3ds/etrian_odyssey_nexus A wonderful review written by our very own gloopy friend, @Plattym3. Feels like a local boy hit big time with him on this site! https://rpgamer.com/
  19. it's not just Atlus, it's NIS, Squenix, Capcom, practically everyone. E.G. : Squenix didn't want to spring for higher capacity carts for the Switch release of FF10/10-2, nor did Capcom for Okami HD, inspiring me to import both. Then there's Squenix's poor handling of the release of DQ12 we all are painfully aware of already. NIS doesn't even do dubs on half their work anymore (looking at you, Princess Guide), and the list goes on.
  20. Taking my husband through My Hero Academia on Blu-ray. He's really invested in it! I'm staying ahead of the show with the manga. Read 2 out of the 11 volumes I have collected.
  21. Siliconera is a good site. Only one I read more often is Nintendo Life. I'm not surprised you found an awesome article for the game there. I'm only surprised you said "would" make a good Etrian Hype Man. You totally are already.
  22. I caught sight of your preview text on RPGamer tonight. A fit tribute to the game, and a fine comment on the bittersweet nature of the game. It IS sad that the 3DS is being put to pasture, and the most unique feature of EO along with it. I truly don't know what will be done with the series now, but I intend to milk this final 3DS entry for all it's worth. Also took a moment to lightly poke well-meaning fun at your twinsie's new form av on his status update. Dusting off an oldie to tease him with. Just to remind y'all I'm still wagging.
  23. There is, as usual, a free 3DS theme for Etrian Nexus, and I just got it tonight, then set the favorites shuffle for all 5 Etrian themes. Gonna try to stick to my guns on this one this time, given it's the last one on the system. I've got plenty of games to wiggle through during the next 2 weeks, but I'm excited for this swan song (for the 3DS, not necessarily the Etrian games). I mean, a new Etrian 9 days before my birthday? Aww, Atlus, ya shouldn've. I know I'm not half the hardcore fan of it Yangus is, but I DO try! P.S.: Any word on the viability of a Pugilist-sub-Hero?
