  1. I will agree that the phrase "yum up" should never be used by anyone. Ever. I prefer the far more elegant "scarf down".

    Hmm, so I should be around the halfway point then. Doesn't quite feel like it though. I'm about to go into the third dungeon and it still feels like the story is just picking up properly.

    Somehow I am 50 hours deep into Persona 5 and it still feels like I'm in the early stages. How big is this game? O.O
  4. There's a guy somewhere in my office building with a very similar name to mine. Lately I keep getting emails meant for him and he's been getting mine. We've both been here for years and somehow this has never happened until recently, but now it's like the floodgates have been opened. Weird. Happy birthday Theda

    Big Amazon sale on board games today: https://www.amazon.com/l/16634112011/ref=gbps_tit_s-3_596a_6120b912?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=af76a610-c28c-4f12-9308-ccc69eba596a&pf_rd_s=slot-3&pf_rd_t=701&pf_rd_i=gb_main&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=MEXB989NCVV5W86WBFGV The Others: 7 Sins & Zombicide: Black Plague at 50% off are tempting me.

    If you mean the guy in the Chapel who's like a mini-boss I had gotten past him before that other post. I ran into some guys who were red (on the Thief Vision thing or whatever it's called) shortly after and assumed that the rest of the enemies for the rest of the dungeon would also be a higher level than me but most of them weren't. I finished the first dungeon tonight without having to do any grinding so that was nice. Now I'm trying to balance the dozen or so things I want to do with the fact that I can only do one per day (or two on Sundays). It's frustrating

    Yep, after my second venture into the castle I got up to the tower area and now the enemies are all at a much higher level than me. I think I'm level 9 and everything I'm fighting is like level 16 or something. Had to back out again after nearly dying. I have 8 or 9 days left till the deadline. As far as I know there's no way to level outside of just combat so I guess I'll have to go grind on the lower levels of the castle for a while. Now it feels like a proper JRPG

    I think the only CMON game I have is Blood Rage, which I bought at retail cause I missed the Kickstarter. I love that game and I've always regretted missing out on the extras that the backers got, so I'm sorely tempted to do the late pledge for Rising Sun.

    Thanks for the info I ended up going into the dungeon right away after all to see how I measured up. No problems so far really apart from a couple of the enemies who show up red on the Thief vision thing who could one shot my party members. But they're easy to deal with once you find their weakness, as is everything else. That seems to be my main issue so far, every fight is pretty much the same. Hit whatever their weakness is, knock them all down, then either talk to get a new persona or just finish them off. I'm sure it gets harder later though. I hope anyway. Got to the third floor safe room and then backed out cause everyone was out of MP or whatever it's called. I have a bunch of treasure to sell and Ryuji wants me to go train with him so I'll probably spend a couple days preparing before I go back in. I like this system, it's pretty cool.
  10. Now you've gone too far
  11. Video Games: Dawn of Waaaaagh!

    Finally finished ME:A on Friday. ~90 hours played to do pretty much everything. All the side quests I could find and 100% viability on each planet. With the exception of 5 quests in the Additional Tasks category, four of which bugged so I couldn't complete them and one I just couldn't fucking bother with because by the end of those 90 hours I was just ready to be done with the game. The few choices you actually get to make during the course of the game didn't seem to have any impact on the ending at all, although apparently certain characters can die if you didn't do certain missions before the endgame. But the missions involved are so important story-wise I can't imagine anyone skipping them. Still, with this game meant as the first in a series I guess that makes sense. I'd expect those choices to do something in Andromeda 2 if it still ends up getting made. My overall thoughts echo what Fez said, and I had a very similar conversation with my friends the other night, there is good stuff and fun to be had in Andromeda but it's few and far between and spaced out with so much bullshit and filler and poorly thought out quests/design decisions and hit or miss dialogue that it's impossible to actually recommend it to anyone. I'm not a fan of review scores generally but I think the 6/10s it was getting were pretty fair. Some highlights though: Fighting my first Architect on Voeld (although this is somewhat spoiled because killing the architects doesn't impact the story in any real way), discovering the secrets of the Ryder family, learning about Shepard & the Reapers from an outsider perspective, having an adorable romance with Vetra --- Onward to, hopefully, more positive things. I started Persona 5 over the weekend. I like it so far. It's very anime (not that I didn't expect that) right down to some of the weirdly translated stuff. Every few lines of dialogue there's a moment of "nobody talks like that" but it's not too bad that I can't ignore it. Also, after 6 or 7 hours of playing I only just now feel like I'm out of the damn tutorial. I'm finally allowed to choose how I spend my time and how long to prepare before I go tackle the first dungeon properly. I have 14 game days to do it so my first instinct is don't rush and use as much time as possible to get better items and such, but I've never played Persona games before so I'm not sure how this works. Is there a downside to waiting? Do I get a longer deadline for the next goal if I finish this one earlier? There's some other annoyances as well. Like the only female character in the party (so far anyway) gets a cleavage-displaying latex bondage suit and a whip as her battle gear because of course she does. There's some weirdly casual homophobic jokes tossed in every once in a while, particularly by the guy whose cafe you live in. He's very sure to let you know that he doesn't save men's numbers in his phones or allow men to ride in his car because he's very masculine and straight you know and very secure in his sexuality apparently. And why do I need to watch a weirdly long animation of my character jogging for some reason after every battle that persists even after I've skipped through the "here's how much money and exp you got" screen? I'm particularly sensitive to unskippable animations after Andromeda

    Copied the URL that I was redirected to the last time it happened (it's becoming more frequent now). In spoiler tags to avoid accidental clicks. Open at your own risk and all that: ETA: clicking the link doesn't go to the same page that shows when the redirect happens so I don't know how useful this is.

    Bandai Namco just posted this teaser for an upcoming new project: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qlKNHgxmSE I love the art style. The blood dripping from the mouth at the beginning and the #PrepareToDine at the end suggest vampires. The Gunblade, the giant monster at the end and the aforementioned hashtag are making me think Bloodborne/Souls. If this is a new SoulsLike game with vampires I'm going to be a happy camper.

    I haven't found much terrain that the Nomad can't drive over. That 6 wheel drive mode plus boosting has it going up damn near 90 degree angles like the horse from Skyrim.
