  1. Video Games: Dawn of Waaaaagh!

    Well, I'm 95 hours in and I'm around half way through the year (mid September). But I don't know if the game will last for the full year or if there might be a time jump at some stage.

    If it makes you feel any better - trying to balance everything you want/need to do only gets a lot worse. Balancing everything you want to do is really at the core of the game. From trying to get the most from your SP and getting as far as possible in a dungeon in a single day - to trading off between spending time with confidants, raising stats and earning money.
  3. Video Games: Dawn of Waaaaagh!

    I haven't really found a need to grind out levels much. I recall the encounter you mention. And that does happen on a couple of occasions - meeting a single, significantly higher enemy. You might not beat him first time up - but through every different type of attack at him and learn what he's weak to. Then come back (healed up and with sufficient SP) and you should be able to spam effective attacks from the start, rather than burn turns on learning what works. And you can use characters with no effective attacks to heal/buff/debuff. So yeah - treat the first attempt as a practice run. You should be able to win second time round.

    I had seen mention of Valentine's Day in P5. So I figured it must pretty much go to the end of the 12 month period. But it's highly possible it skips chunks of time down the track. I guess I'll find out in due course.
  5. Video Games: Dawn of Waaaaagh!

    Yeah, the difficulty increases and the boss fights can be fairly challenging. But you're right - the game as very much about learning each enemy's weakness and exploiting it to the fullest. As you're finding, managing your SP to get as far as possible before it runs out is key (at least until you gain ways to mitigate lost SP).

    I'm new to the Persona series myself. But I'm around 65-70 hours in and have finished the third dungeon. (This game looks to be massive, btw. I estimate I'm a quarter to a third through the game. It's still earlyish in July). But, from what I've read and started to experience - the only real downside of waiting is your team-mates will be constantly pressing you to complete it and won't really want to be spending much time socialising. If you finish the dungeon ASAP, they will be continually asking you to hang out, giving you the opportunity to develop your relationship with them. The first dungeon, I did the same as you and left it quite late. The second, I moved at a moderate pace - advancing it in chunks throughout the time limit. The third one, I followed the advice I'd read and completed the three necessary steps in 4 days. That gave me stacks of time afterwards to work on relationships and stats. But no - there is zero impact on subsequent events/time limits, from what I can see. it seems the game lasts 365 days and is very regimented as to what happens when. And you can do literally nothing to change that in anyway. You can even check your calendar months in advance to see when school exams are scheduled etc. And the blank areas in between are clearly where dungeon infiltrations will slot into.
  7. Just the way Thor said "he's a friend from work" - I'm choosing to believe Hulk worked in the same office as Thor and Daryl for a bit before heading to space.

    Yep - XB1 controller works fine. That's how I'm playing.
  9. Attack on Titan (Anime series)

    26 weeks? I thought season 2 was only supposed to be 13 or so episodes? And I assumed it would be shown weekly. Is one of those understandings incorrect? 13 episodes is/would be a bit disappointing after such a long wait. But at least they would all be available to watch a little quicker. That's, assuming they don't drip feed them out over a longer time-frame - which would be doubly annoying.
  10. Attack on Titan (Anime series)

    I'm not sure I can bring myself to watch this week to week. I think it would be too frustrating. I think I'll wait until I can binge it on Netflix or something.
  11. Iron Fist [SPOILERS - after page 3]

    Hmmm... seems like I might be due for a rewatch.
  12. Iron Fist [SPOILERS - after page 3]

    Well... slightly dead. He appeared to die in DD season one and that didn't stop him from re-appearing in season 2. And, if I recall correctly, they made it very clear that his body wasn't anywhere to be found after he fell to his "death" at the end of the second season. And if Iron Fist did nothing else, it certainly demonstrated clearly that the Hand are able to bring people back from the death.
  13. 'Ghost in the Shell' Live Action(?) Hollywood Edition

    I have to say that I'm somewhat forgiving of the whitewashing in this instance. Because it's ScarJo. There's not too many (English Speaking) Asian actresses of her caliber - in terms of both acting ability and as a drawcard for the movie. They've simply cast the best possible actress they could, regardless of race. Can anyone suggest an Asian actress in Hollywood who's as talented and popular as ScarJo?

    I can't quite recall the Normandy ever even having a bathroom. So I guess the Tempest is a step up from crew members just taking a dump on the floor, wherever they please. (Or maybe I'm just not recalling correctly)
  15. Pokemon Go: Generation 2

    Actually, my question was rhetorical. I was suggesting it was a question people should ask themselves when deciding which to keep. With the answer being, if you aren't going to be spending the candy/stardust to power up the higher IV/lower CP pokemon, then keep the higher CP one and turn the other into candy. Level 30 here. (I hit level 29 a good 4-5 months ago but no longer play anywhere near as much as I used to)
