@  xcrash1998 : (21 September 2018 - 05:46 PM) I like games that actually reward you for reaching more difficult objectives.
A good example would be the golden ballon in Super Mario Oddisey it more like a trophy and less like an in game side note of what you did.
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:13 AM) but like yeah I get more trophies/achievements in games that I just happened to play more bcuz the game itself was fun or w/e and it's like oh ok i also will get these things just through doing the stuff i wanted to do anyway, that's cool i guess lol
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:08 AM) like they don't rly hurt but they aren't something of particular value, it's kinda like a fancy alert with a title that tells u u did a thing, it's not bad but im not rly one to go out of my way to obtain the validation of a video game through something that can usually just be done via spending enough time/effort on it

(getting to like the top X% of a competitive multiplayer game or smth would be a diff story, but in that case i wouldn't even want an achievement, i feel like just getting there should feel rewarding in itself, so... yeah, lol)
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:07 AM) yeah I'm not a trophy/achievement guy lol
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:35 PM) That's just not incentive enough for me, man.
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:34 PM) Plus with modern gaming a lot of the time the most you can hope for if you get all the collectibles is a trophy/achievement. Which I suppose is valuable to some people, but it's not gonna add anything to the game whatsoever.
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:58 PM) like yeah sidequests with an actual crafted scenario to them, post-game dungeons that aren't TOO much grinding/rehashed content, etc. are cool
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:57 PM) yeah I only like completionist stuff if it's like meaningful content/not super grindy but usually at some point it becomes kind of annoying so meh
@  acceptance : (11 September 2018 - 01:01 AM) Gotta love unforgivingly difficult super bosses. (Looking at you, Lingering Will.)
@  acceptance : (11 September 2018 - 01:00 AM) I cannot do the whole collectible thing. It always feel so tedious. Sidequests and EX dungeons are always fun though.
@  xcrash1998 : (09 September 2018 - 06:56 AM) So thats perfect for me
@  xcrash1998 : (09 September 2018 - 06:55 AM) I am rather obsessed with completing on 100% unless it is completely unreasonable to do so
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:51 AM) if they ever make a sequel/spiritual successor or the like at the very least it should have my attention, haha
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:50 AM) so yeah, great, great game overall, I even bought the expansion and played the heck out of that too because it was so much fun. Think I ended up almost 100%ing it (basically fully explored the map IIRC, not sure I did everything but at the very least I should have gotten pretty close).

and I'm not really a completionist either, so again... just speaks volumes about how fun the game was IMO.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:48 AM) Awesome gameplay, sweet enemies, an overall interesting premise and plot along with some solid writing, even the soundtrack was decent for a Western game, lol... but of course, the VISUALS. whew. the game looks soooo good. couldn't help but take pictures even though I don't usually consider myself that kinda guy, lol. the environments and hyper-realistic look are just so visually appealing I was often kinda mesmerized, similar to how I felt with Xenoblade X.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:46 AM) I'm surprised to have finally found some other people who have played and liked that game though. I was excited for Horizon: Zero Dawn and got it at launch and ended up basically binging it, IIRC even putting P5 on hold for a bit, because it was just so much fun.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:46 AM) ouch @ potential april fools lol
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:34 AM) Still an excellent game. One of the more interesting stories I've come across in a game, especially an open-world one, and some pretty solid characters and worldbuilding. The gameplay is fun and works really, really well in the setting, too.
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:31 AM) Although that article is from April 1st and my google searches are not revealing any other evidence of a PC release...
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:29 AM) Ah yes! I just played that game this past summer with my friends (who have a PS4) and it really was great! I'm really glad it's coming to PC so I can have it myself, and also because I've got some PS-less friends who would really enjoy it.

Aw...it's so cute...I just want to take it home with m--

 

Wait.  Are we talking about the spambot or the new characters in FE Heroes?

Say what you want about the chibis...but the Black Knight and Nephenee's cut in art is pretty good.

oh, the art is great

 

I am quite pleased with Nephenee's and TBK's art

 

but "cute" still wouldn't really be my word choice to describe them, XP

Say that to Nephenee's face again.  I dare you.

 

Totally not bias because I love the fact that Nephenee's art works so well with the Summoner Support background.

well, I'm generally just not to uh, compliment art in that way in the first place

 

but if I had to, I'd say she's closer to hot than cute?

 

somehow 'cute' has more of a childish or demeaning connotation to me, even though it doesn't have to

 

rather than cute, i'd say it's super well-drawn and brings out Nephenee's charm

 

which is probably not helping poor Seraph, who can't seem to get his hands on Nephenee AFAIK... (he got like 4 Oscar's though >>; poor dude)

I think we're hitting a discussion on the connotative meaning of different words for "nice" art:

 - Cute can certainly have diminutive connotations.  

 - Beautiful often has connotations of "class" and elegance. 

 - Hot would imply something along the lines of a sexual attraction. 

 

That said, I typically default to cute in this scenario as I think you'd associate many of Nephenee's endearing traits with a more cute emotion.  Though the real sentiment is that her art is lovely and it meshes amazingly well with the background of the Summoner Support.

 

I feel bad for Seraph.  If memory serves, he was the one with the Nephenee avatar on the site?  I mean, this is probably the best shot he'll get at Nephenee (as her stats and capabilities aren't good enough to warrant a Hero Fest focus on her) and it's a 50/50 shot at the Focus % (at the best of times...that is, if you're purely pulling on blue orbs). 

 

I've heard the stochastic method for finding the 90th percentile for landing a Nephenee was spitting out about 226 Orbs.  I would have to assume it's much worse as it didn't seem like the calculation considered the fact that Oscar/Nephenee were both splitting the blue focus (90% chance of landing an Elincia just opening red summons was about 180-190)...so I could easily see that heading up to the 400-450 Orb requirement region to land a Nephenee 90% of the time.  Could be wrong though as I don't really delve into the mechanics of the game's summoning engine all that much.

 

What I'm trying to say is that it's damn hard to pull a Nephenee and it doesn't seem like the odds are getting better anytime soon. That is, unless they decide to kick her down to 4 stars.

 

Silver lining is that if you whale for that, it at least doing so prevents any other addictions from draining your wallet.

@bolded statement, should have just said so :P

 

but yeah, nitpicks

 

I'm just not one to say something is cute

 

and yes, he has had a Nephenee avatar for a long long while now, I think

 

I usually don't pull the orb colors I want, nevermind the actual characters, so >>;

 

400 orbs for a 90% chance, ugh, I'm guessing Seraph has probably already spent as many as he reasonably could, lol

yeah seems like it, and you probably have a point with the Hero Fest thing. the real problem is just that she shares blue orbs with Oscar, cutting that % in half is a real bummer

this seems like a weird kinda silver lining... either way the wallet is drained, no? ><; lol
