• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

    Underrated anime/manga?

    Ooh, I actually just recently watched both Magi and School Live!, and liked them enough to decide to read each of their manga -- I started Magi but haven't gotten past what the first season adapted yet (and haven't started School Live!). My pick for an underrated anime is Zombieland Saga. I...

    3DS/Wii U eshop closing (What should we get?)

    Thanks for the heads-up, I actually hadn't seen this. Drives home what a flop the Wii U was, since it's going extinct within 10 years (although I'll always appreciate it for Xenoblade Chronicles X, probably my favorite game of all-time. They need to port that)(but I guess the 3DS isn't that much...

    NFL/NCAAF Thread: We don't huddle anymore in our society.

    I dunno if I'd call it "genius", because it seems like an extremely obvious move to make if you can pull it off. I have no idea what Seattle is thinking, but I can't believe they let Wilson go for so little; I suspect Carroll/Schneider are in the late stages of what I'll dub BOBS (Bill O'Brien...

    What's your favorite book ?

    My favorite book is Breakfast of Champions; or, Goodbye Blue Monday by Kurt Vonnegut. It's equal parts poignant and humorous, and all insightful into American culture. I'll see what I can do about editing in a seedy link to my post later.

    I've still never used Discord. Something about it makes me feel all discombobulated and tense... I dunno what it is. I use Reddit from time to time, just because it beats most social media in terms of usability; personally, I credit that to downvotes, whereas Twitter and etc. have no bullshit...

    What Video Game are you currently playing?

    I just finished playing Tales of Arise. Was eh. 4/10. Hmm... by "the first game in this franchise is the hardest", do they mean Cold Steel 1, or Sky 1? Because Cold Steel is one arc in the larger Trails franchise that starts with Sky -- and if you haven't heard this elsewhere, most people will...

    Favourite Tales of Game??

    So, I platinumed Arise. How do y'all feel about it? I thought the gameplay was decent, yet distinctly different from other Tales (way more different than the Graces transition was), but I also felt Tales' RPG/fighting blend was unique, whereas you can find action RPGs like this aplenty...

    Favourite Tales of Game??

    So, I did end up replaying Berseria. I thought I'd finish it too long before Arise's release and leave a gap between them, but I decided to try and fill in the equipment book, and MAN does that take forever. So, I'm not quite done yet with that and the platinum. "Fortunately", Best Buy...

    Favourite Tales of Game??

    I just mean, as far as the characters joining the journey, I think most of them are plot-shaped contrivances. In Yuri's case, he's dissatisfied with the empire and how the lower quarter is treated, but he's still been farting around there for years, and at the first opportunity to leave, he's...

    Sir, this is a Pokemon forum.

    Oh, yeah. I think I heard that before, but I guess I forgot it because it was such a stupid reason. Especially since they openly tag infracted posts now. and omg omg omg... don't worry, your secrets safe with me! :oops:;):cool: Wasn't there a width limit, too, even if it was just text? And I...

    Favourite Tales of Game??

    Well, I just about wrapped up my Vesperia playthrough. I feel like, overall, it doesn't hold up quite as well as I remembered it, but it's still my favorite in the series. It's a little more aged than I would have thought for a 7th-gen game, both with its chibi cel-shaded graphics and in terms...

    Honestly, every once in a while, I end up searching through old threads here, and any time I come across one of my old posts, I think they're witty and hilarious and great and I'm like, "Man, I can't believe I've only posted 2280 times, everybody is really missing out!" Well, I exaggerate, but...

    What upcoming video games are you looking forward to?

    *obligatory BotW2 mention* This is cool, but on the other hand, Hajimari/Reverie is now going to be released three years out from its Japanese date, and who knows how long of a window Kuro will have now (since they'd have to release it a year after Hajimari just to keep the three years, but the...

    Favourite Tales of Game??

    Ah, I can see that. It kind of goes with what I was thinking, that there was a good idea somewhere in the game's concept, but they messed up getting it out. There are some small hints like that here and there, mostly in how average people are terrified of Sorey's powers, but Sorey pretty much...

    Favourite Tales of Game??

    Yeah, I agree. It's funny, because Berseria seems to be much darker in comparison, having you play as (ostensibly) the villains on a revenge quest, while Zestiria has the standard, "beat the bad guy, save the world" plot with a very straightforward hero. But in Zestiria, most of the party are...

    What phone do you prefer?

    I didn't see "rotary" on your poll, and as such, I'll be staging a sit-in protest here until such time as you add it.

    Favourite Tales of Game??

    So, I finished my Zestiria playthrough, mostly on chaos difficulty -- though I cheated a bit and turned it down for the cameo bosses in the EX dungeon (and I had 2x EXP for NG+ anyway). But I was able to beat all of the bonus bosses and do all the content, and did get the platinum trophy, after...

    Favourite Tales of Game??

    I do feel like the older TP-based systems like Vesperia ARE slower, where you do want to keep your guard up and wait for the right timing to counterattack out of that with standard attacks, which I can see as an adjustment if you're used to playing the more dynamic Graces/Zestiria type systems...
