  1. "I sure can't wait to get to the new content in Persona 5 Royal"

     

    120 hours later:

    What the hell, Atlus!? Who wrote this? Jun Maeda? I just got to the part after "sending" the last calling card last night. I could have finished the game by now, but instead, I'm procrastinating. Why? Because I'm not sure I'm emotionally prepared for this ending...

  2. [DJMax Respect] Due to my own idiocy I recently lost my 230k combo in freestyle... On a more positive note, I did manage to get the "Testing Your Skills" trophy, at least. While I'm glad that is out of the way, I'm not too confident I'll be able to do some of these missions. I'll probably stick to the combo grind for now.

  3. Anyone else playing Magia Record? I've rejected the very idea of mobile games for years, but it has changed my mind... a bit. I actually wanted to try it when it originally released. However, my phone wasn't good enough at the time. I got a new phone recently, and Magia Record happened to get an English release soon after that. I was thinking about making a thread in the mobile section, but if there's no interest I won't bother.

  4. Note to self: Do not drop phones on the tennis court...

      I've had my phone for almost four years now and no accidents yet thankfully. *knocks on wood* I don't whip it out in public very often though (:awesome:) so I don't get many chances to drop it like what happened with yours. A case definitely sounds like a wise investment for your new phone if that's something you do a lot, even if it does kind of mess with the form factor a bit.

       

      Haha, even without the cracks, she still doesn't look like the happiest individual, does she? :giggle: I know that's kind of her thing, though. Angel Beats was a great anime. I should rewatch it sometime.

      I've dropped my phone dozens of times and never had it Crack. Knock on wood I guess.

      @Undead Wolf I should probably clarify that it fell out of my pocket while I was backing up quickly. Either way, it was still a careless mistake. I've dropped phones before, but this is the first time I've cracked a screen. 

       

      I think there's like one brief moment in the last episode where she smiles, and that's it. I of course had a screenshot, (before my hard drive died) but I think this is it: oLE8Vkf.jpg

       

      Angel Beats is one of my favorites; I wouldn't mind rewatching it. Aside from Sakura Trick I never rewatch anime for some reason. I re-read manga all the time, though.

       

      @Hemiak The trick is not to let the screen hit the ground. Then again, it's never planned, so that doesn't work. Mine fell screen first on the ground hard, making the outcome hardly surprising.

  5. Have I unlocked the "No Life" trophy yet?

    10,000 hours... damn. I wonder how accurate that even is.

    1. Undead Wolf

      Undead Wolf

      No life? Pfft, 10,000 hours of playing weeb games is time well spent. :awesome:

    2. Ariadne

      Ariadne

      Lol, true enough. I guess it's not surprising after all these 100+ hour platinums. I also tend to take my time, especially when it comes to RPGs.

      Meh, it's a long road ahead of you. 😇

  6. First world problems: having to rip half my CD collection because my goddamn SD card decided to delete my music... this sucks.

      perhaps start a backup harddrive so it's as easy as plug in and copy. if it happened again.

       

      as for digital library, fuck that. some people like physical collections if they can. myself included.

    3. Ariadne

      Ariadne

      @Crispy_Oglop Thanks for the suggestion, but I love collecting stuff, so that's not really an option for me. I only buy music digitally if I absolutely have to.

       

      @LegacyJKO09 I'm going to use the Play Music app now, that way I won't have to deal with this again. To give more background on this situation: 5-6 years ago I ripped all these CDs to my previous PC. I then transferred all that to the SD card in my phone. I've switched phones since then, but kept the same SD card. That PC doesn't work now though, so the data was only on my phone. However, the SD card got corrupted for whatever reason recently, which brings me to now.

       

      As I mentioned above, I love collecting stuff (physically of course). Most of that is unsurprisingly video games and music. While I don't think it'll happen anytime soon — if at all — I absolutely hate the idea of an all digital future and will reject it as long as I live.

    4. LegacyJKO09

      LegacyJKO09

      @Cave_Johnson_ same here. if an all digital world happened, I would be pissed. no dvd bluray collections, games, music. its disgusting thinking about an all digital future.

  7. [Sen no Kiseki IV] 50 hours later, I've completed the first act, or at least what I think was the first act. Just when I think it can't get any better, it does. I don't want to spoil anything, so I'll abstain from saying too much. I will say this, though, which is not that big of a spoiler (imo): I was surprised when

    Celine turned into, well, this:

    I still can't get over how unbelievably cute she is.

     

  8. AmiAmi finally sent me the payment request and... ouch. I expected it to cost that much, but it still hurts my wallet a bit. It's worth it for Kiseki, though; I can't imagine spending that much on any other game.

      A chunk of change but worth it for a good game!  Happy trophy hunting!

  9. 2NjScp0.jpg

     

    Don't mind me, I'm just trying to get all the modules in Project Diva X...

     

    On the positive side of things, at least I don't have to play Easy, Normal, or Hard anymore.

      Ara, I do exactly the same, actually play songs with low speed is horrible in any rhythm game x_x

    3. mecharobot

      mecharobot

      Godspeed. I just use notepad for this nowadays, thou...Not sure about this game, but I did play most songs on hard for 200 songs trophy in Senran Kagura Dekamori, in order to not make it just a grind.

    4. Ariadne

      Ariadne

      @mecharobot I've always liked having checklists on paper. Crossing things out with a pen makes me feel like I'm making progress or something, I'm not really sure. That, and seven pages of a checklist in the format of a spreadsheet is hard to view on a five inch phone screen. 

       

      I remember the grind being boring in the SK rhythm game, but it's nothing compared to this. To give you an idea, each song needs to be played at least nine times, and there are thirty songs, I think. That's not even factoring in the awful affection grind, or getting all the modules.

  10. [Demon's Souls] I don't remember it taking this long to get pure bladestone last time, but it's going terrible right now. 118 skeletons later and I have a million shards, chunks, and enough katanas to arm a fucking militia.

      Edit: Finally got it after 57 more kills, making the total amount 175.

      I can't wait to do it again for the EU stack...

      Honor_Hand

      @Cave_Johnson_ Awesome man. Congrats 👍

       

      175 Black Phantom Skeletons were killed in the production of that stone...Damn, that's a lot lol xD

       

      Good luck with the EU stack for when you attempt it ;)

    4. Glowbugg

      Glowbugg

      Can't remember the exact number but it took well over 200 times for mine to drop lol gratz ^^

  11. [Sen no Kiseki III] For the first time ever, I somehow managed to fuck up when going for the treasure chest trophy. As much as I love this game, I'd rather not have to go through it again. That said, I'm determined to platinum this game, even if it kills me.

     

    Side note: Juna and Altina are cute:

    I didn't want to take up so much space with images, but I can seem to put spoiler boxes in status updates anymore. Maybe I never could in the first place; I don't remember.

      @Fidel The eye doesn't show up even when replying to a status for me. It works just fine in regular posts, but that's it. I figured there might be a way to do it manually, but I haven't done it that way since before the site changed. It just didn't occur to me to try that for some reason. Thanks for the suggestion.

       

      test

       

       

      I guess it works? The preview makes it look odd, but the actual reply will probably look different.

    3. DamagingRob

      DamagingRob

      Yeah, it does look different than the final product. And now the eye is no longer there for me. :/ If I'm replying to a status from the status feed, I think it shows up. But from the notification link it doesn't. Luckily I remember some of this BB Code stuff.

      Kyawa things are never a side note :awesome: 

      Kyawa things are the most important :awesome: 

  12. [Project Diva F 2nd] I thought I was finally done with requests after the 50th one, but then I saw this:

     

    "Cuckoo Clock - Accept any 78 requests from Vocaloids."

     

    This game is seriously making me hate the number 39. Why not have a trophy for clearing all the songs on extreme? Instead, we get trophies for collecting stupid shit, like furniture...

      I already have Future Tone, so I might just skip getting X. Trophies rarely influence my decision to buy a game, but I don't think I have the patience to go through this diva room bullshit a third time. Not only that, but the grind seems to be even worse from what I've read.

    3. JaM

      JaM

      Lots of Songs in PDX are not in FT though :|

    4. Ariadne

      Ariadne

      @JaM Honestly, I had no idea... In that case, I'll look into it more.

  13. It seems that more overpriced DLC characters are coming to Senran Kagura PBS, and it's one I didn't expect at all:

      @Satoshi Ookami I have zero interest in going back to this game after getting the platinum. However, I'd buy Plutia DLC day one, lol. It definitely won't happen, though :/

    4. Satoshi Ookami

      Satoshi Ookami

      Since I haven't even bought it, I guess I can wait for all DLCs xD

  14. [Tales of Berseria] Can anyone tell me exactly where I can find the Lich Ring (rarity 18)? All I need is a specific enemy name that drops it. The only information I can find is this:

     

    Common Drop
    (Ex-Dungeon Only)
    Katz Corner Shop

     

    I've reset the Katz shop many, many times, and they've never sold the damn ring. ...and saying it's a "common drop" in the ex dungeon is fucking worthless. The author of the guide might as well have wrote "it's in the ex dungeon something; go fuck yourself."

    1. Ariadne

      Ariadne

      Nevermind, looks like I don't need it. I was under the impression that everything was needed for the item collector trophy. I just got the trophy without the ring, so apparently that's not the case.

  15. It seems that Sen IV will be the best Sen game:

      Well, technically they did appear in Ao as well =D

    3. Ariadne

      Ariadne

      Interesting, I didn't know. I'll get around to playing Ao eventually. I kind of wanted to make it platinum #100, but it will probably be a long time before I get to 100 platinums. One thing I do know for sure is that Zero will be #75.

      Briliant milestones! :awesome:

  16. [Rocksmith 2014] 180 missions down, only need to do 320 more...

  17. "That brief hesitation was all it took to spawn a great evil. It crawled through the fields, ran through the hills, and spread disaster in the skies above."

     

    - Book of Ezer, Verse 2, 'Disaster Unleashed'

     

     

    I just finished the game earlier today, and it was even better than I expected. I can't wait to play it again with voice acting. In fact, I went and bought the Evo version almost immediately after the credits, lol.

    1. Satoshi Ookami

      Satoshi Ookami

      Awwww, so quick =D

      Sure, TC is much shorter but even so :D

    2. Ariadne

      Ariadne

      I could've finished even faster, but I probably spent a lot more time than necessary preparing for the final dungeon. It takes a lot of sepith to create level 5 quartz for every character...
