@  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.

We had one of these not too long ago, but it's over the date for necro-posts, so I made a new one.

Currently, I am watching Ayashi no Ceres, Trouble Chocolate, and Beelzebub--I just finished Ai Yori Aoshi. I've been watching more seinen and shojo lately than anything.

I'm currently watching the new Naruto episodes, Dragonball Z but this time uncut and sometimes One Piece.

Man I really wish they would make some new Dragonball episodes dry.gif

Dragonball Z Budokai or whatever it was, was kinda cool. Though a lot of cuts and whatnot. I need to get back into that some more.

I finished Gurren Lagann a few days ago, and it made me almost cry. I at least got a couple specks of dust in my eye or something.

Anyways, I just started on Full Metal Alchemist, and it's OK . I think I might have spoiled all other anime for myself by watching TTGL :0

Gurren Lagann?

Sounds a little too weird for me. yes, I totally just judged a show by its name. If I didn't, I'd end up researching and watching way too many shows. XD

I've been meaning to watch FMA but there's that doubt in me, I've heard it's good but I'm too scared to try it and too curious to just give up on it. >_________>

Hell man I actually wanted to try to get into Gurren Lagann recently because of that one Youtube video that had Yoko in it.

Say, where are you guys watching your anime anyway? Now that megavideo no longer exists, I've been having problems watching anime.
Would someone happen to have a link to a website that still has anime up that wasn't nuked to hell after megavideo went down?

Never been a fan of Gurren Lagann. I haven't seen it excel at anything people claim it has. It isn't a good action show, boring cut from cardboard characters (and ones which were done better in other series. Simon/Simone is pretty well covered in other shows better while Kamina exists in other shows better and in half the time), isn't that funny, isn't a deconstruction, and barely a reconstruction. It relies on fanservices from Yoko to carry itself through some segments and hopes you don't realize Kamina, the fan proclaimed best character ever, is a rehash of older characters.

It is quite honestly the first show that I ever managed to fall asleep watching.

But that's my two cents. I'm a passionate mech fan and maybe the show isn't aimed for me. Not to mention going in with it hyped as the best show in existence or a life changing experience probably hurt my expectations.

I'm a big supporter of watching things via DVD and via legal YouTube videos. It sounds a little expensive, but I like to cherry pick and generally don't watch many shows anyways.

Here's a
link to the first episode of Gurren Lagann on youtube which is in a playlist with the rest of the season. I'm watching FMA on some obscure site for Iphones lol. Like Iphoneanime or something.

I haven't seen much anime, so maybe that helps, but I loved it. Kamina was such a badass person, his whole character was built around being a man, a true man, something every male strives for. Yoko was a lot of fan service, but she also had a reasonable part in the story, and it just wouldn't be the same if she had a different personality.

I know the series was meant as a sort of parody to what every other anime is, but something about it having everything good in it just made it epic. And the whole story of a boy fighting his way to save the universe, just using his willpower, is awesome.

Just my opinion as well, but lots of other people seem to agree with me biggrin.gif

I've been watching Rosario + Vampire recently until I finished a bit earlier. Even after the second season I don't exactly want it to end. XD

Youtube huh? Well It's a good place I suppose but I hadn't thought of it since well most are split into multiple parts and crap generally. Although it's nice to see this isn't one of those cases. XD Thank you for that.

When I'm Bored was the same youtube video that had Yoko in it that I was mentioning yes.

Well, now that I've watched the first episode, I now know the origin of the Kamina glasses meme. XD It looks like a pretty good anime though so I'll keep watching.
