More On Bravely Default

So I've been playing even more of the demo, and after figuring out the Brave and Default mechanics, actually changing the classes around for my characters, and grinding, I can say that I've enjoyed my time with this game. Later on, I might actually buy the game, though if I transfer my progress, the whole beginning of the game would probably be easy as heck. =P But I'm still surprised at how much control they give you over the game, allowing newer players to the JRPG genre to ease their way into

How Does I RPG

So I decided to download the Bravely Default demo, since I've been hearing/reading good things about it. I knew I was going into a traditional, Final Fantasy-esque JRPG. Shouldn't be too bad, right?   Few minutes in, I die in my first battle.   .......................

I Am Single On Valentine's Day

And I'm okay with that. Even though I'm in high school.   Not to rain on the parade of anyone who is in a relationship, that's fine and I'm happy for you. But I'm not exactly in a rush to get a relationship. Whether that's normal or not I don't know and I don't care.

So Uh, Sonic Boom, Anyone?

So uh, turns out that TV show announcement also entails a video game! And toys and whatnot, but that's not what we're here for. So why is this actually interesting to non-Sonic fans? Because of the developers for both the Wii U and 3DS versions. Big Red Button Entertainment, the Wii U developer, has Bob Rafei, Naughty Dog veteran. He was their first hired employee, and has worked on the Crash, Jak and Daxter, and even Uncharterd: Drake's Fortune. But the first two are the ones that matter, becau

So There's a Chinese Dub of RWBY

I know that not many people on this site will care whatsoever, but the fact that this exists is awesome for me. Surprisingly, the voice acting is pretty good. The translation obviously is not exact, but overall, it stays quite true to the original. And for an added bonus, they pronounce the Chinese names correctly! I always get ticked off when Chinese words aren't pronounced correctly in media. (It's Yah-ng She-ow Loh-ng, Lee-eh Ruh-n, and Soon Woo-koh-ng people!) Though it is a bit awkward with

MERRY CHRISTMAS

I did pretty much nothing today.   Hopefully your day was more fun.   Oh, and for those who don't celebrate Christmas, Merry all the winter holidays I'm too lazy to look up.   This has been a random message from JiMing.

Twilight Princess

So I realized I hadn't touched the game in a while, and got back to playing it. Pretty good, after coming from Ocarina of Time 3D, the mechanics are very familiar and I had no problems jumping back into the game. Even though it's the Wii version, I still like the controls, and being able to swing the sword while walking is a GODSEND. I don't think that it was a good call to make the graphics realistic, as they have aged horribly in comparison to most consoles, even the Wii itself! I was never a

About Dem Next-Gen Consoles...

I posted this in my feed: I like my games looking pretty as much as the next guy, but I'd want to play the next Zelda game over Battlefield 4 or Halo. Not that they're bad games, I just don't really have much interest in the current exclusives for Xbox One or PS4 as I do for Nintendo's exclusives. SMASH 4 CANNOT COME OUT SOON ENOUGHHHH   *ahem*, sorry about that. I don't know why I posted this, maybe I just felt like sharing my sacrilege-according to my classmates.

New Blog Theme

All I have to say is thank goodness for emulators!   EDIT: Yeah, this is probably a phase, but we all go through those. =P

Best Sonic Final Boss Music #13

So here we are again! Apologies for not uploading yesterday, I kinda forgot... But anyways, let's get this starting up again!   #13: Shadow the Hedgehog http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ePWUTKEKySs   Now we've got some lyrical compositions going on! To be honest, I Am... All of Me has always been one of my least favorite Crush 40 songs. I know some people will like a few of the metal overtones going on, but it's just needlessly dark and edgy for a Sonic game. Though that's a complaint I have with

Best Sonic Final Boss Music #14

Okay, now I consider all songs from hereon out to be within the decent, good, or amazing ranges. The past two songs were in the mediocre range. Anyways, onto the music!   #14: Sonic the Hedgehog 1     Now the Classic series that people love so much gets some representation! Like the last two, I believe this song to be a bit on the short and repetitive side, though nowhere near as pronounced. I also like how this song has a greater sense of finality that the last two lacked.   Tune in tommorow (

Best Sonic Final Boss Music #15

Sorry for not updating this yesterday, I was busy. I'll try to make this list daily, but no promises. Anyways, onto the next song!   #15: Sonic 4: Episode 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqWrJBhXOF0   Most of my problems from the Episode 1 theme are still present, but not as extreme. It's ever so slightly longer, and each part has some variety, with an attempt at the end to build up an "epic" feel. However, I still don't like the instrumentation, and the song is still on the short side. In a nu

Best Sonic Final Boss Music #16

So since I got a few people telling me to go with the idea, here it is! I will count down on the final boss songs from every console released game that is a platformer.

Should I Make This Series of Blog Posts?

I have a question for all of you in the blogosphere. I've got an idea to count down on all of my favorite Sonic the Hedgehog final boss songs from the main series (No Advance, Rush, etc.). Now, I get a feeling that many people here dislike Sonic the Hedgehog, and love mocking the games, characters, and even fans. Yes, it's true the games struggled in quality from the 2000s onwards, but I have a feeling that Sonic has been making a comeback as of late (I don't believe any of the reviewers on Lost

Marvel: Rebirth

So an RPG of Marvel just opened up today in the Off Topic Culture forum. It looks great, I suggest checking it out! I got a robot char with S.H.I.E.L.D. as of now.

Fictional Character Face-Off: Link vs. Sora

So remember this? Of course you don't. Well the gist of this whole thing is that I pit two fictional characters against each other for you wonderful people in the blogosphere to debate who the victor is going to be. Normally, I'd write up a quick narrative on how the battle started, but I cannot figure out how to do so for this match, so we're going to skip to the rules. For simplicity, the Link discussed is the Adult Link from Ocarina of Time. Both characters have access to all weapons and abil

I suck at videogames

So today, me and a fellow member going by the name Ghabulous Ghoti played an online Brawl match. Wow, I got my butt kicked so badly it wasn't even funny. (Okay, maybe it was)   That guy left no chance for me to retaliate, and I exposed myself pretty much all the time, so time and time again, I would go blasting off into the distance. Perhaps it was my choice of characters, as I played mid-tier characters Sonic and Toon Link, but he managed to pummel me with Captain Falcon (well, he was Fabulous

Is my blog invisible?

I've literally had nobody post on anything on my blog for several entries in a row, so I'm freaking out thinking my blog is invisible or that there are bad opinions of me running through the community. I know I'm overreacting, but I CAN'T HELP IT. I'm paranoid like that.   Could people at least post saying "I'm here", so I know I'm not going mad? Thanks. If people have some tips on how to be more visible in the blog spectrum, that would be appreciated as well.

A few messages to those involved

To those of you who suffer daily because of societal beliefs on who people should be, I'm sorry, and I hope you will find other people irl to support you.   To those who think disagreeing with a fundamental aspect of a person that they had no control over is okay, no matter how you sugar-coat your words, you are being no different from the average bigot.   To those who DON'T suffer oppression because of said fundamental aspects of a person, and yet are intelligent and brilliant to see through so

For all of you who love 8-bit music...

So I heard there was a remastered version of the Ducktales games for the NES, with a remastered soundtrack as well. Given that Ducktales has some of the best 8-bit music ever, I listened to some of them, and wow, the composer did a good job modernizing them. The theme for The Moon is brilliant, and it lives up to all the hype it probably got. Don't believe me? Listen to it.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1sgNFH3OiJg   I'm also a fan of the remixed Transylvania theme. Be warned, it contains min
