  1. [Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine (PS3)] A couple of nights ago I managed to clear the campaign on this one. For what I was, I thought it was okay. The moments leading up to the final confrontation were pretty cool. Even if I had to abuse and improvise on cover a lot (because the game doesn't have an actual cover mechanic, you know), I had a blast in the final chapters conducting my hulking Space Marine into purging all those damned heretics. That bridge section when the rest of the Ultramarines company joins you was pretty damn epic. And then, Relic being Relic, they probably thought that would be the perfect spot to throw in some Blood Ravens as well to fight alongside you while some epic horns play in the background. Game even gives you an Autocannon just to make sure you are having fun. :awesome:


    For how good it was, the game ends more with a whimper than with a bang. For once, the final battle is you against a small gauntlet of enemies, and then you tackle the final big baddie in a QTE fight. And not just any QTE fight, but one of those oh-we-are-both-falling-an-endless-pit-but-I-must-still-bash-your-head-kind-of-QTE fights. It came off as undercooked to me. The ending itself is okay, a bit too cliffhanger-y for my taste, if I'm going to be honest with you. Will we ever see Space Marine 2? I highly doubt it...but this one is all right.


    All online trophies have been done as well. Only need to find all the collectibles, do a few miscellaneous kills here and there, do a shit ton of kills over there, and clear the game a second time on hard for the Platinum. Not too sure if I'm going to be able to tackle the Chaos Unleashed DLC. My boosting partner and I were trying the other day and the game would just get stuck when loading the match. Stuck as in never starting the match and keep there loading forever, and we tried a few times with no success. Me thinks the servers of this game are in pretty bad, as we got a ton of unexpected freezes playing the regular MP whenever the game suddenly tried to change hosts for some reason. If you have this game in your library, you may want to do it soon before the servers finally kick the bucket.



    Feel my wrath, you blasted orks!!!

      Finished this up recently myself, and it was pretty decent. I've been leaving it running over night a few times a week in an attempt to get the 40,000 kills with a turbo controller. It's gonna take a while I image.

    2. Honor_Hand


      @Helyx That grind to 40,000 kills is sure going to take a lot of time. I also have a turbo controller at hand so I might try something similar to just do it AFK. xD

    3. Helyx


      I've been using Part III: The Weapon > Chapter 9: The Weapon > Checkpoint: Bridge with :square: turbo'd. Since there's no actual way to track your kills, it's all a guessing game at this point, but I assume I've still got at least 20 more hours of AFK grinding to finally put this old plat behind me.

  2. @Ariadne I see you had time to cover plenty of Nanoha material since your previous post. I also did the same but I haven't really sat down to write my thoughts on the movies and the spin-off here. Need to do that at some point soon. Anyways, concerning what you posted above, yes, ViVid Strike was great. I personally didn't have many issues with the Nanoha ViVid season, I actually enjoyed it a lot for what it was. ViVid Strike, while it changed many things compared to Nanoha ViVid, I thought it was pretty good as well, as those changes were most likely for the better. It's nice to see the different characters make progress on their fights, and the few scenes about both Rinne and Fuuka's past, I found those shocking and engaging. This spin-off was a little less magical, but more combat-directed instead I would say. And yes, I can certainly approve of all that hardcore hand-holding action of both Fuuka and Rinne near the end. The movies, man... I absolutely adored The Movie 1st. It was everything I wanted from a mahou shoujo anime, and then even more. I thought it was a masterpiece of a re-telling of the first season. I loved it even more than the first season itself, hell, I even scored it a flat-out 10 on MAL after I finished watching the movie. I'll develop my thoughts on it a little bit more later. The Movie 2nd A's, I found that one to be on par with the As season. Like, it was just as good as that season, which is no small feat as you already know. One thing I didn't like about it is that, unlike The Movie 1st which expanded on that season a lot, I felt The Movie 2nd As actually cut down on a number of characters and scenes that were important to the main anime series (where the hell are my catgirls?! lol). All in all, it was very great, but there were definitely changes to the story. Now, Reflection & Detonation... I didn't enjoy these ones very much. I thought the production values were awesome, and how everything was so much crisp and clear. The action sequences are total eye-catchers compared to the already eye-catching sequences of the past movies. But to me, they both had so many plot twists one after another that I found them a bit too disjointed to follow. It was so confusing for me that when the bad guy "finally appeared" in Detonation, instead of being impressed I was like, "Okay... How's this guy?" The movies are not bad but I much preferred the re-tellings than these last two, IMHO. One thing that probably didn't help in my understanding is that the Reflection fansubbed version I got from somewhere online had pretty, pretty bad subtitles. Like the kind of subtitles Google would do? Yeah... That bad. ._. I got a better version since but I still need to find some time to sit down and watch it again to see if I can make a better sense of it. @Alderriz Code Geass was awesome, you have my respect there. And come on, the China characters were awesome. I have to admit they didn't add much as far as plot and whatnot, but come on, their empress was pretty damn cute. The series did have a ton of characters to follow, I'll give you that. So much so that I have trouble remembering like 90% of the characters and their names right now. 😅 I haven't watched the movies either but I've heard they are good as well, maybe not in the same level as the main anime series, but still enjoyable. Good luck with Haruhi, that's another of my favorites. I hope you're psychologically prepared to handle the Endless Eight arc.
  3. Happy to see the best NFS title of this past generation is getting a proper remaster. Be sure to pick this one out, it's quite an awesome racer that evokes what the originals NFS games were all about. Now, what EA needs to do is an NFS Classic Age Collection, including stuff like Hot Pursuit (1998), High Stakes, Porsche Unleashed, and II SE. That'd be sweet. They also need to do an NFS Golden Age Collection including Underground 1, 2 & Most Wanted. Maybe throw in Carbon in as well for good measure. My guess is that getting the licenses for all those soundtracks and vehicle models is probably a little too difficult for them. Which is a shame, because I'd love to play all these games again in HD and with trophy support. All those titles were a big part of both my childhood and my teenage years. ^^
  4. But the question is... Does it run worst than the PS3 port? No kidding, I played that one a long time ago and, despite being an obvious and totally understandable downgrade from the original PC game, the thing that infuriated me the most was how buggy the game was. I wouldn't call it completely broken, but it definitely had a lot of noticeable stuff. Like that one time I got stuck in the last mission for hours on end because the game wouldn't just open a certain door after glitching out, leading me to be completely puzzled as to what to do. It happened to me several times too, even after restarting.
  5. Awesome news there. It shouldn't be too bad before we can start playing co-op then.
  6. As I promised yesterday, here's the latest figure that joined my collection earlier this week. I had originally pre-ordered this one late last year. After seeing she was being made by a sculptor that I really like and based on the illustration from another artist that I like even more, it was an easy, no-brainer pick for pre-ordering. Simply put, she is a combination of a number of great things that I really love, be it the NONORI cat lingerie, that Alphamax/SkyTube was manufacturing the figure, that AmiAmi actually included a nice wall scroll for the Limited Edition bonus, and well, the fact that she came with a good selection of nice little accessories to mess around with.






    Right off the bat, I'm 100% happy with this purchase. Pre-painted figures have been getting more and more expensive over the years, so it's nice to see one that it is perfectly done, comes with a rather unique base and setup, it's easy and pain-free to cast-off, comes with a plethora of extra little thingies to have fun with, and above all, represents good value for the money invested into it. Very pleased with this one. :wub: All of these pictures were taken with the new Xiaomi phone I got not too long ago in combination with a rather cheap small photo lighting kit that I got from eBay. Both of those things certainly help in improving the quality of the pictures I take in my rather poorly lit apartment. 😅


    You can find some extra naughty pictures in the spoiler below. Just to be safe, I added a few of those infamous Sony censorship beams to two of them in an effort to comply with the rules on this website. x3









    Hope you guys enjoyed the pictures. :eyebrow:



    As for the figure-collecting hobby in general, I've been thinking about heading in a new and exciting direction in order to expand the scope of my collection. Don't despair, as I'm still going to be collecting cute/hot anime girls. However, I want to try getting into the Japanese Garage Kit scene and maybe get some of those fan-made models that are so unique. In case you don't know, GKs are basically kits made out of resin for modeling. A good chunk of them are made by fans and circles, and shown at exhibition shows in Japan, like Wonder Festival, Treasure Festa, and so on. Unfortunately, the Japanese GK scene is extremely undermarketed and the likelihood of getting one of these original kits during or after an event is pretty much like catching a shiny Pokémon... Extremely difficulty and infuriating. I know a few places where I can try getting some original kits, but what I've read from other modelers is that they usually get and work with high-quality recasts made by companies in Taiwan and Hong Kong instead, since the Japanese don't appear to be too interested in expanding on that front. Which is a shame, since I've seen so many cool ideas and designs that never get the official PVC treatment. Anyhow, I've seen these companies' work in the past and it's of great quality overall. Some purists figure collectors may hate them due them not being "officialy licensed" or "original enough", but for me, they seem like a blessing. Hell, they even offer some of the kits already assembled and painted every now and then for extra convenience. They are fairly priced as well so, why not? As long as the quality and the workmanship are there, I'm all down for it.


    So, what I'm aiming to do is get some of these kits, build them and paint them myself. Even my fiancée is excited to take part in this new side hobby with me as well, and that's quite an advantage for me as well because she is quite the good painter, unlike me, lol. I've already started purchasing/importing some of the tools and materials that I'm going to need, but I probably won't be seeing anything completed until the first quarter of 2021. If things work out, I'll be happy to continue delving further into the hobby. I may even try and get into modeling a few other things that also catch my attention, like Warhammer 40,000 miniatures or model cars since I also enjoy dark sci-fi and automobiles. We'll see where this goes. =3


    So yeah, that's my update for tonight. I hope you enjoyed reading this far and those sweet kittylicious pictures I posted over. I'll be sure to keep sharing stuff about figiures here whenever something new arises. :)


  7. Adoro la versión completa del banner actual 😍 Y esos gifs de Felicia, es difícil concentrarse en leer los post, en especial en el que esta de espaldas xD

    1. Honor_Hand


      Uff, esa imagen de Felicia que tengo ahí es espectacular. Tiene un delineado y unos colores perfectos y llamativos. Y su cuerpo está para comérselo completo, sí que sí. 😘


      Ahora, ese gif en donde está de espaldas haciendo lo que está haciendo, ahí por allí también una versión NSFW un poco más gráfica, por si te interesa buscarlo por allí. ;)

    2. YonahFuriae


      Oh, gracias por el dato, acabo de encontrarla :awesome: 

      Y si, sobretodo llama la atención el color rosa en el banner, jaja.

    3. Honor_Hand


      Hay otros gifs por ahí también en 3D, pero esos ya son más modelos para R-34. :awesome:


      Tengo que representar a la diosa gatuna de la mejor (y más segura) manera posible en cualquier lugar a donde vaya. x3

  8. While everyone is raving left and right about their PS5 pre-order, we men of culture have more important business to attend to. Of course, Sony's new console is cool, shiny, and all giggity. But you know what else is all giggity? This beautiful set of kittens that got available for pre-order today. Actually, I'm not sure if the pre-orders started today, I just noticed my email was spammed by all these shops trying to sell me some neko love after I woke up.


    They're quite a massive step up in price from my normal figure purchases. In fact, I think I'm probably insane at launching this amount of money at 2 pieces of pretty plastic... But come on, wouldn't you agree they are quite the desirable piece of pretty plastic? At least they are for me. :awesome:


    *Disclaimer: Opening the spoiler below will show a certain amount of neko lewdness, be sure to open it up at a safe place or to not open it up if you can't handle said imagery. :P 


     Advanced issue found






    So, there have been a number of Nekopara figures that have come out in recent memory, with each one of them being pretty difficult to resist, but this set here is the one that finally broke my wallet and made me invest in it for their eventual release in August 2021. No kidding. I've been meditating this all day long, with my heart pushing towards getting the figures, and my brain (and wallet) telling me the responsible thing of not getting myself tangled in all this.


    In the end, my heart triumphed over my best judgement and I placed my pre-order on AmiAmi right this second before publishing this status. Not exactly sure of how I'm going to come up with that amount of money at that time, but we'll see. I have plenty of time to think about it.



    This is me right now. 😂


    Also, in case you were wondering, I finally received this one earlier this week. She arrived safe and sound despite everything. Took a crapload of pictures too, I'll be sure to share a (somewhat safe) selection of them with you tomorrow. :D

      For some reason, my grammar tool just keeps messing up with the posting and adds a lot of blank space in my posts whenever I use spoilers or quotes on this website. I keep forgetting I have to just deactivate it every time I have to post one of those here. xP


      @Undead Wolf YES!! Thanks. They're quite the kittylicious pair. ^^ I just couldn't say no to having them in my collection. :3

    3. cr1s


      That, right there, is surely the perfect NekoPara figure. Chocola and Vanilla look so adorable and lovely together, especially in these cute outfits. 😻 It'll be a very fine piece to add to the best kittylicious collection ever. ^w^ <3

      @cr1s Hehe, the perfect piece to add to the best kittylicious collection ever. That's what I'm aiming to do. :3

  9. [DOOM (2016)] Almost done with this one. 96% of completion done so far. I'm close to reaching Echelon level 3, and from what it seems, it's going to be a long grind to Echelon 5 and then Echelon 8 to unlock the Robotic and Cyber-Demonic armor sets for the last 2 bronzes I need to complete this game. The online is still fairly active and works well. For how enjoyable it is, I'm starting to grow a little bored with it. Not that the MP part is bad, mind you, but more like I've never been a huge fan of playing online multiplayer games with randoms: I can only play for so long before they start to bore me out of my mind.


    Anyhow, slowly working towards it. I usually end up in the upper-middle portions of the scoreboard as far as kills and points, so I guess I'm doing good enough. The game's online infrastructure runs pretty well even for me. Even during my worst lag spikes (around 30-50 kb/s of download speed), it's still somewhat playable. Some of my shots get lost in space and time, and I get killed in funny ways from time to time, but it's still playable. When my Internet "works well" (that's around 190-220 kb/s of download speed), I can actually play fairly decently against a set of regular opponents, often ending among the top three players. That's cool, as I normally suck at most online shooters, lol. xD

      Jeez man xD hope your ps4 will survive 

  10. Did somebody say neko? :3
  11. Perfect entry point for me then. What about Detective Pikachu and Sonic The Hedgehog? I have heard those were decent to good. They may not be full live-action, but still... I know what you mean, though, the vast majority of videogame-based movies are barely watchable.
  12. Oof, that's another one that deserves a watch too, even though I know zero about FF.
  13. At best, it could be like the earlier RE movies. At worst, it could be like the latter RE movies. That's kind of what I'm expecting. Venom was so-so for me. Probably one of the worst of anything Marvel-related in recent memory. The script being reworked so many times is never a good sign. Kinda reminds me of the Mario Bros. movie. We don't talk about that here. ._. But for real, I'm actually planning to go for both the 2005 movie and Annihilation sometime soon. Already rip them from somewhere online, so I may as well visit that kind of hell as well.
  14. Do you guys think there's a fair chance this movie is going to end up being actually good? I mean, I know Uncharted's narrative, character chemistry, and overall story are probably the main highs from the game, but do you think they're going to be able to capture that on here as well? I know there have been some recent decent to good movies based on videogame properties lately, but I always try to approach them with doubt for the most part.
  15. I enjoyed DOOM 3 more than DOOM (2016), and that's usually the one that is considered the black sheep of the franchise. DOOM 2016 is a great shooter as well, but the weird design choices and the ton of bugs and glitches I encountered really dragged my experience way down while playing it. Hopefully, it won't be the same for you. Everyone loves DOOM 2016, so you'll most likely be fine with it.
