    Gaming (Fire Emblem (obviously), Halo, Monster Hunter, Smash) and reading (Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, Ender Quintet). Also like RWBY and Agents of Shield. On top of that, I really like long, solitary walks.
    Yeah, you could say I'm anti-social.

  1. Best Villager Promotions

    Mercenary is basically the only choice Gray has. Tobin's your best mage, due to his high base speed more than making up for the penalty fire brings on top of early excalibur; and as a Sage, he gets physic-- letting him at least be a back-up healer at the point in the game were mages begin dropping off. Kliff is an incredibly solid cavalier that's basically a second Mathilda. His high speed + massive accuracy bonus from his Tobin support also lets him be a very effective archer. Faye just sorta sucks at everything, but sucks the least as a Cleric and has a unique spell.
  2. BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle!?

    The game was never going to have equal representation-- though I wasn't expecting it to be quite as lopsided, it was always clear that BlazBlue (the game that's in the title) would get the most and RWBY would get the least. At this point, all we can do is wait for them to confirm Western pricing; if it does translate into $40 for the base game and $30 or less for the season pass, a lot of the complaints will subside.
  3. BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle!?

    Apparently quite badly as well. They've got a ways to go to salvage this.
  4. BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle!?

    Basically. Which is weird, as they could release the game with some of the DLC characters at full price, and then nickel and dime the rest... and avoid all this bad publicity + gain more money. It just doesn't make much sense how they're handling it. I've seen it said that was a potential mistranslation, and that it could also mean "work can't happen on P5A while BBTAG is in development".
  5. BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle!?

    The base game is priced at 5800 yen, which is a pricepoint that generally converts to $40. The LE is 10,500 yen and has some other junk besides the season pass. So it's looking like $40 for the base game and $20-$30 for the season pass, which is a lot better than what people thought. Still, definitely could've been handled a lot better.
  6. BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle!?

    It seems like they were last-minute inclusions (or the game was just super rushed in general... seems more likely at this point). If it's already a thing, it means RT signed off on it.
  7. BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle!?

    They already burned most competitive players due to the simplified controls (though those who've had hands-on seem to be pleased at least). The BlazBlue side takes up half the roster and is missing several fan favorites while every other series' representation is straight-up incomplete. This announcement alone pretty much killed all interest people had in the game. ...How did they fuck up so badly? Even a budget release isn't enough to save it.
  8. BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle!?

    ...Yeah, this really took things from "gotta see more but a hopeful purchase" to "screw this I'm out". You reveal the full roster of only 20 characters, and then tease another 20 as DLC? And you're not even putting the entirety of team RWBY in there? And announce all this half a year before launch? What. Are. They. Thinking. They've pretty much burned bridges with every fanbase at this point.
  9. Nintendo Direct Mini 2018-01-11

    From Software was confirmed as a 3rd party dev for the Switch at last year's press conference; something like this was generally expected.
  10. FE16 "leaks"

    Directs have been announced any time from 1 to 4 days beforehand. We do know for a fact that there will be a January Direct (thanks to EA's internal slide leak), and multiple sources have echoed the 11th as the date. Though I am beginning to doubt the exact date, we still can't rule it out until tomorrow.
  11. Share your FEW stories!

    In the Camilla map in story mode, I lost Cordelia to archers (first and only character death). ...Map ended up taking me nearly 20 minutes.
  12. FE16 "leaks"

    It's not like development can only start once a prior game is finished; the conceptual phase and stuff likely began as Fates was winding down. That said, I do agree that the post puts way too much focus on a single line from a support.
  13. Gah, how'd I miss that? In that case, a two person run: only your main lord and one other character under your control (when you can; when you're forced to have more, you have to put them in pair-up/can not attack with them).
  14. Aside from the obvious ideas (all of X type of units/only units from a specific game), I can't think of anything interesting that wouldn't be counter-productive to the whole "grinding" deal.
