Oh good the site is back so I can finally reply

Maybe we could talk him into throwing himself back into the Fade or something to skip the last boss fight like you can talk Saren into killing himself instead of fighting him

... Guess I'll have to play Persona 5 sometime so that I know what I'm talking about.

...Admittedly it was a somewhat low difficulty, but still, yeah, 2 Master Hand hits with Joker's Down-B up filled up his bar completely, and after that I just need to wail on him.

Oh, yeah, that's not so bad for FFX then.

I'm thinking I'll move back to my FF Marathon once SCVI is over. I'll still be playing Mother 3 (once I've fixed the problem with it), and I'll do everything in my power to keep FFXII in my radar so that I can move on to XV (and VI and IX) sooner. I have no idea what I'll think of XV, but one of my coworkers is playing IX right now for the first time, and listening to him talk about it and try to learn more about it has really tempted me to jump to IX. I'm doing my best to not do that and save it as a reward for getting through XII because I still don't really like it but want to at least finish this version to say that I gave it a shot.

He was pretty cool! His short sword has a bit less range than I was expecting, but I got used to it. I completely forgot about his down-b until Master Hand. On the plus side, using it then allowed me to destroy him in under 30 seconds, so that was cool.

Now I'm just waiting for the next character.

Also, good fortune to you on your path to FFX Platinum. I'm not sure if/when I'll have the patience to go for it.

I can feel my oldness.

Yeah, I was going to try him out, but then I found out he wouldn't be available until 10:45 (my time) and I decided I'd rather continue SCVI and then go to bed. So I'll try him out today after work.

What's "do not Steal(TM)"?

I'm definitely going after LoS next, though my first priority tonight is to try out Joker in SSBU.

I'm counting that as a different mode. For SoulCalibur, I'm doing the "Smash Bros" thing where either beating the game with every character OR the "Adventure Mode" yields a , while the other will count towards progress. If I had done Libra of Soul first, I would've counted it as after that without going into the Story Modes. ...If that makes sense.

I was tempted to just call it after beating the main story, since I saw the credits, but it was so short that it didn't really feel satisfying, so I decided to wait until all Character Stories were finished.

Adding something like the Renegade interrupts so we can cut him off mid-sentence would be great. He does seem to love the sound of his own voice.

I kinda hope they could evolve the dialogue wheel a bit really, stuff like the old Telltale Games and Alpha Protocol let you pick your response as the other person was still talking which made the conversations feel more natural.

I'm glad people are calling them out about it and bringing attention to it, it means they'll have to do something about it and change.

I want to play as a Magister! And get Dorian to become TEVINTER'S Divine. Then I'll have all my besties in positions of power
We still need to crack the egg too.

If someone who is crazy enough to do Maniac Radiant Dawn says that H3 is very difficult, then I'll certainly stay the hell away from that. I'll do H1 or H2 in that case!

I really enjoyed Mystery of the Emblem on the SNES, so good to hear that the remake is a good one! I doubt I'll ever like that art style, though. I also remember the DS-style battle animations looking really lame compared to the GBA games and being really disappointed with those.

Doesn't sound too bad. Anything resembling Lunatic/Maniac is definitely banned from my marathon, though. Too close to territory and I have little time for resets too.

I see you've almost finished H3 on Shadow Dragon. What game would you compare its difficulty to? Binding Blade Hard or maybe Hector Hard Mode? Would like to know where it fits in since I don't remember liking Shadow Dragon too much and don't want to make it worse by playing on a difficulty that pisses me off. I hope New Mystery of the Emblem is better overall!

Not caring that you've had years to work on a game, have nothing to show for it, and expect your devs to pull everything together in the last few months? That's insanity.

Yeah, we just need TEVINTER in all its glory before Bioware implodes on itself. It's all I want!

Playing through Thracia 776 normally scarred me enough for the rest of this marathon, just so you know!

Seriously though, Radiant Dawn Normal (Hard) is plenty difficult and I don't want to slam the game in my comparisons to other titles in the series while exhausting myself in the process. I've got plenty of games left, after all! Including Fates x 3!

Actually I've wanted to ask you about the two DS games I have coming up, what do those numbered Hard modes compare to roughly? I could probably hunt down a save file to skip to the hardest right away, but I'm not sure how they hold up.

I've found that looking at the screen at a slight tilt helped me to better see which areas might not be "blue" enough. But yeah, it's annoying for sure.

Thanks!

Looks like there was a lot to cover there, they're just that big of a mess right now. It really seems like they learned nothing from Andromeda.

They literally spent years rebooting Anthem over and over with no idea what kind of game they wanted it to be.
Hopefully Dragon Age won't have the same problem, though them wanting to just re-use the engine they built on Frostbite for Anthem is worrying.

Yeah, it's annoying. I had to guess on a couple of places that didn't look "blue enough" and eventually I got enough to get the dog in Zaphias to show up. Thankfully I've also been working on mastering recipes, so I still got some progress done on that while running around. Looking at the "Field Locations" in conjunction with it helps a lot, since there are some really tiny Field Locations that LOOK blue with all of the other blue around it (since it's determined based on Field Locations and not necessarily how much blue there is). Right outside Ehmead Hill ended up being what put me over the brink.

Also, you only need 95% of the map, since you can't pee on Zaude (too bad, really ).

I haven't taken a close look at it yet since I'm still working on other skills for Flynn, but I'm looking forward to seeing it in action!

Yes indeed!

The moment I saw one of them, I was like "Yay! They added them in!" It was a very nice touch.

Time to restart the full series playthrough then

[Link]

It's an interesting read and explains a lot of what's going on over there at Bioware. It just sounds a mess. Also seems to kinda explain why David Gaider left (among others.)

My favourite part is when the higher ups told the devs to make sure Anthem was "un-memeable" after Andromeda.

You're braver than I am. I should follow your example and try it... one day.

Yeah, DA:I replay time! But first, you should replay the entire series to make a Keep save to import for it.

Edited to add: Did you see that article on Bioware and the statement they put out to do damage control without even reading it? They're killing themselves before EA even get to!
