  1. Got my Switch Lite yesterday. Loving it to death.

  2. Man, I have been gone for way too long. Hope life has been good here in the Den.

      Lots of people coming and going, and surprisingly, since DQ11, not much growth in the user count.  Which is very sad.  I wonder if this site is getting extra traffic.  I hope so.

      The good wiki shut down due to heavy traffic from the Smash announcement...actually it still shuts down from time to time.

      Otherwise, things are well.  I'm doing well in general.  Lots to do, and little time to do it (I finished Builders 1, and am playing TitS)...FAQ stuff, life, nothing major or important, but a lot of work.  Unfortunately not much more beyond that.  How about yourself?

      About the same. Working most of the time, tossing in some Bloodstained: RotN when I can. Game is amazing, btw.

      Missed you guys though, so finally remembered to roll on through.

      Well, you're always welcome here bro.  What's funny is that both you and Griever just popped back in from out of the blue, and here I was just thinking about both of you, wondering how you guys were doing.  It's good to see you back.

      For sure, that's a game I need to get at some point.  Same with Sekiro, for which I keep hearing great things.

  3. Kingdom Hearts 3 has been one hell of a game so far. I just wrapped up the Tangled world, and finally picked up a Keyblade I've been anticipating for a long while.

  4. Wonder how everyone here has been. Good, I hope.

      Ah, makes sense.  I forgot about that, though I don't think anyone expected awhile to mean quite this long.  
      At least it's finally here, but I've heard the story is a bit choppy and messy.  Is that true?  How are you liking the game?  I'd get it, but other priorities come first, and KH3 is not even close to the top of the list.  Not yet anyway.

      This is already on the fast track to becoming my favorite of the series, and I've only completed the first world. And they are big. Real big. It took me nearly two hours to clear the first world alone. 

      Graphically, it's just fantastic. Looks so damn good, and the Disney and Pixar characters look like they came right out of their respective movies.

      Story-wise, I can't say much at the moment. But for me at least, I expect it to be fine, as I'm intimately familiar with the lore.

      Nice to have you back.

  5. I know that Yangus is a very cool character, and tough as hell too. But...I think it's time we faced a truth. He ain't the best "Yang" around. This man is:

    Yeah, I'm bored.

      Since you're bored, maybe it's time to entertain that perfect DQ7 3DS restart and make your own Super Kiefer, then challenge every DLC tablet boss solo, dragging your level 1 companions around as you prep for them!

      You know you want to do this...in preparation for DQ11 ;), and any eventual replay of DQ7.  It is surprisingly fun once you hit level 50 and you get spurred on to take it all the way.

      ...

      .

      or, you could get a bit further in Bloodborne.

      I think my next move is to go back to Sleeping Dogs. I had it on PS3, but when I joined the current gen, I didn't bother going back to finish my game. I picked up the Definitive Edition for about $3.99 last week, so I can finally play it again.

      There's also my replay of Riviera: The Promised Land, and I do need to get cracking on my fanfics. 

  6. There are things about Cole Phelps from L.A. Noire that I don't like, but whenever I see this scene, I can't help but love him in that moment.

    He's grown by 8 levels, and his freaking Strength is still at base. He's got a 40% growth in it too. This keeps up, he'll be dead weight real soon. He has issues dealing with archers, for Christ's sake!

      This is one reason I hate random stat generation, or at least very wild and obtuse stat swings.  I am VERY glad DQ3's system stopped at DQ4 NES, and all versions of DQ3.

      I had no idea FE's systems don't even run base stat values.  Makes me curious what the algorithm looks like.

      Just read up on the FE growth rate system.  Interesting stuff.  It's one reason I prefer TO's style of growth (fixed) for such a game.  You should be at +3 or +4 on average...that sucks dude.  You could consider restarting and trying to roll stats and save scum.

    2. Sword_of_Dusk

      Sword_of_Dusk

      No, it's okay. FE6 has terrible balance, and growths are a bit low. Let me show you exactly what I mean.

      This is Wolt. He sucks balls, as you can see. Let me show you what my current one looks like.

      Screenshot_20180522-180600.thumb.png.141b3a6afebfa15fe06a6bf3f3972cc3.png

      6 levels got me basically nothing.

  8. If you don't watch the Super Gaming Bros., now's a good time to start. I recommend their LP of L.A. Noire PS4. I've had so many freaking laughs already, and they aren't anywhere near done yet.

     

  9. If you don't already know, here's a reminder that Grand Theft Auto: Vice City has one of the best soundtracks ever.

      Aparently one that  doesn't like Vice City! LOL.

      Well I'm not surprised, we get many links blocked by YouTube in Europe that aren't in the USA, for some reason... some countries more than others tho.

       

      PD: Spain. Yourself?

      NVM... California = USA. Hurray geography!

      It's odd because that video has way less views than others with the same exact content, yet this one is "banned".

  10. Question for everyone. Swords, Lances, or Axes?

      He'd be better off defending us. He can be the party's shield, combining that with Auto-lick plus a level 5 grimoire stone of the same skill to guarantee a 70% chance to heal himself after every hit he takes. We can boost his HP and Defense with his remaining skill points, and the Maul and/or Chomp skill to restore his HP with physical attacks when he can attack.

      Throw in some Fire, Ice, and Volt Shield grimoire stones and he can protect us from the elements as well. And before you say, "Well what about wind," we don't have to worry about that.

      And with his Force Boost skill, his HP would triple! Top that off with the Force Break skill being a full retaliation of tanking all the damage AND dishing it right back and Zahan would be unstoppable.

      That is awesome. More people should strive to analyze themselves like that.

    3. TheKingOfTheDragovians

      TheKingOfTheDragovians

      I agree. But it's also important to not do it too much. It's just that it's fundamentally subjective, so you can end up with a you that's not really representative of what your actually like. Like looking into a meaning that's not there. I've done it sometimes but I always try to catch myseld in the act of idealizing myself. Since everyone's always changing I try not to get caught up in who I am now vs who I'm becoming. If that makes sense.

    4. Sword_of_Dusk

      Sword_of_Dusk

      It does. It's a wise warning. For me, I like to compare who I am now to who I used to be. I find it interesting to note my path through life. Not for judgemental reasons (unless I'm feeling like an ass that day), but I find that analyzing my journey gives me answers to questions I hadn't even known I had. 

  12. Sonic Mania is almost here! I cannot wait to get my hands on it.

      They should so make a new device, call it the the game of farts, you have to pass gas to move your character, and based on the level of tooting, can trigger anything from critical hits to powered up versions of skills and spells! Fartdain!

       

      Fiber One and Nintendo, together at last, for all those ladies digging their fiber while playing their games. My mind is shot though, I'm coming up with half-hearted fart jokes to use for the switch. It's awful. I suppose the...

      Surprised no one else besides Iggy has commented on this. I'm saving this link to give me a laugh anytime I'm feeling down.

      A gremlin? No, if anything I'd say I'm most like a Fox. Crafty, Clever, Cunning, with a smart mouth and sharp wit.

      I saw a lot of costumes since a lot of kids from outside the neighborhood come to trick-or-treat, my favorite was probably the postbox.

      Mine was a tourist this year. Had the full works to stand out at the Halloween party I went to, and everyone loved it.

  16. Started work on a DQ7 fanfic. I think I have a good little idea here.

      Sorry, neither of those. I'm doing a one shot with Aishe and Auster starting a romance. Will include jealous Maribel and maybe Euphonia.

      About halfway done with the story. Definitely feel I'm gonna really like this when it's completed.

      I listen to music when I get writer's block, so you could give that a try. Combine that with walking and you'll get your mind jogging.

      Or just go jogging and get your mind walking.

      All very good ideas. I never seem to actually employ them when needed.
