Pokemon Moon: Main Story Complete + Thoughts

Thoughts about the game, including spoilers... for the people that care about Pokemon games' stories.
Thoughts on the Pokemon, the game design, characters, story

Xenoblade Chronicles X: Main Story Complete + Thoughts

I'm using the wording "Thoughts" instead of "Review" just cause I felt it was more fitting. And there are spoilers. Though this is an old game now and I think most people already know what happens in the story.
Anyways, my thoughts on here and that and everything.
In short, it was good, but I like the original Xenoblade better. But it still is generally great. Buy it. (Duh?)

Elminage Gothic: 3D Remix - Review

This was originally a $50 game, but at one point, it seems Starfish sold the selling rights? to Mebius. The DL version ($50) was taken down for a different version that includes Mebius in the opening credits, selling at $25.
I think this is correct.

Then, there was a Sale a few weeks back, which sold this game (DL version) at an incredible $15. That's right. I bought a $50 game for only $15. Talk about a deal.
Currently on the final post-game dungeon.

It seems there is an English version of the game out on the PC, but this version is based off the... not-so-well-received original PSP version. That means aging every time you die and revive, time passes just by entering a dungeon, and a lot of copies of the same enemy on the same row in battles. So you might have a different experience than me if you try that out.

Oh, and there are spoilers, though the story is probably the last thing you'll care about in the game. And most of the spoilers are at the bottom, after a notice.

New games... Too many! (´Д` )

And they just start piling up...
Since there are a number, I'm putting it under a "Read More" tag along with my progress.

Also, I'm probably going to add a "Review" tag or something so it is easier to see the posts I make that try to advertise games.
Oh, and I'm just going to advertise Stella Glow (3DS) right there, even though I think everyone should have already played the best JRPG of 2015.

'Cause of course we all want to try out Lillie's bed

WIXOSS card hunting in China!

So yeah, I just got back from a trip to China (the reason I did not make any new posts, and no new posts for Culdcept either for this rotation) and now I have a cold/fever
... I'll try to make posts about a couple of new games I bought, ...when I feel a bit better.

Anyways, I ended up coincidentally buying an entire deck's worth of cards (50). I tried to get the Chinese-version-only cards while I was there, but I could not find a few. I'll look at that issue later. Went to a couple of shops, with one personally run having a considerable amount of WIXOSS cards. Sadly, he did not have too many Japanese versions left. I was able to watch a battle between Midoriko and Remember/Piruluk while I was there.

Oh, and late on the joke, but I got some Tupperware to use for carrying the cards back.

Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu - Story complete!

Phew, finally completed it. It took so long, I'm not even sure if I want to try a no-marriage run, which means I would be mostly forced to use non-royalty and not be able to rely on the OP holy weapons...

And yeah, my score kinda sucks, since I took time/turns to level up my characters when I could and felt like it.

Some game thoughts, my characters, and spoilers related to such.

Adventure Bar Story - Complete!

I've already pretty much suggested trying the game, since its cheap enough that it doesn't hurt on top of the fact there is a demo available too, so I'm actually not going to go into much details on the game.

Culdcept Revolt: Battle Diary 8 (Part 2)

I split up the post into two parts because it was getting too big. This part is about a Friend Match I had, not Special or Ranking, and I also added pictures to make it easier to understand. And such reasons to split it up.

Friday, October 21, 2016

New Game! ( ・`ω・´)

Well, I've actually already started playing it.
Adventure Bar Story!

And by the way, it is actually pretty fun. It isn't anything special, but the main concept of the game is fairly unique and more importantly, it is very cheap for how long it can last you. Also, if you are still unsure of using that money, there is a demo available too, on the E-Shop.

WIXOSS: Booster Pack Opening - WX-15 Incited Selector

For some reason, 1 box just doesn't seem enough, so 2 boxes! And preferably, two boxes each time. Also, I bought a Starter (Mel's), so I also got to open a Pinch Art pack.

Culdcept Revolt: Battle Diary 6

Maps of the week of 10/1

Culdcept Revolt: Battle Diary 5

Part from last set of maps, rest from current set of maps that ended this week.
Oh, and random story, but I finally reached the max PP and got the final avatar (King) and Book Cover. Damn, that was a hell lot of grinding...

Megami Tensei IV: Final - Levels All Maxed Out

So yeah, with the games I am playing are reaching a good resting point(?), I went back and completed my leveling. Now my ENTIRE party is Lv999.
Also, aside from the protagonist (doping), Cleopatra (Streetpass bonus), and Inanna (Streetpass bonus), there have been no artificial stat increasing.
Matador -> Male demon slot
Chironnupu -> Mascot demon slot
Rest -> Waifu demon slots

New Game! (´^ω^)

Which is an old game!

Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu, from the Virtual Console ONLY for the New 3DS. I've always wanted to play it, so it was a great coincidence that I happened to have a New 3DS to play it on.

And yeah, the 3DS Fire Emblem games are not the only ones where character romances ended with child units. Except unlike If/Fates, the characters don't just mate with anyone of the opposite sex and don't abandon and abuse the kids by throwing them into convenient magical dimensions after having sex without any decent plan of what to do if they got pregnant.

WIXOSS: Comparing Cards with the Same Character but Different Name

More of something for myself, but I wanted to place the cards that have the same character with a different name.
To be more specific, I wanted to compare the cards like the Fallen series with their original appearance to make it easier to see what has changed.
Also, the Flathro Signi as well.
Of course, only of the ones I am aware of.
And all images from official WIXOSS site.

Etrian Odyssey 5: All Achivements Complete!

So yeah, defeated Stratum 6 boss and got all of the achievements. All that is left for me is to play through the game a couple more times to get multiple copies of a certain treasure-chest-only weapon to complete a couple of the characters I have and then defeat the Stratum 6 boss several times to create multiple copies of his weapon to complete a couple more characters.

Compared to the other games (not including weakened EO4 boss). the Stratum 6 boss is not a puzzle boss. You do not need as much of a specialized party to defeat him, giving you much more freedom on thinking up strategies.
And no, he isn't easy just because of this. I'd say he is a pretty well-balanced boss.

Oh, and here is the QR code for my Guild. It comes with a Lv99 Retire Lv99 Reaper with Lv10 Soul Gather. And yes, she is the face of my Guild. Her skill build and stats are at the bottom of the post. I was able to read this image from my 3DS, so it should work.

Etrian Odyssey 5: Farming and Grinding

Yes, there are DLC for EXP and Money, but let me just say that there is absolutely no need to buy them. Because it is pretty easy to grind.
However, yes, these farming methods are for end-game. If you want to overpower yourself through DLC early on and, IMO, ruin the experience for your first playthrough, then DLC is the answer. And yes, DLC is still faster than this farming method, but it isn't that painful to just grind in-game.

Etrian Odyssey 5: The Broken Skill of the Game

I guess you can say all Etrian Odyssey games had a skill or two that could be abuse-able or in other cases, skill sets that were broken. I would say the move for Etrian Odyssey 5 is...
Necromancer's Zombie Powder to Equal Exchange or Merciless Shield (rough translation).

Oh, and spoilers on boss stats and such. No story spoilers.

Etrian Odyssey 5: Final Impressions

As of, completing the game and going to the 30th floor. I haven't defeated the hidden boss yet.
So these are my thoughts after playing to this point...
Oh, and I tried to avoid spoilers.

Sunday, August 14, 2016

Etrian Odyssey 5: Halfway Point

So yeah, finished the 3rd area of the World Tree. I mean, there isn't that much to be said. Good old Etrian Odyssey. I personally still prefer the sub-class system in Etrian Odyssey 4 over the new system, but it is still better than the grindy New Etrian Odyssey grimoire systems.
Also, the customization for characters is greater than ever. It's too bad the skin color is set and you can't create your own skin color out of RGB though.

My party at the time of the end of the 3rd area + thoughts..

Culdcept Revolt: Battle Diary 3

AhhhH! Princess avatar is so cute! Her positive motion, especially (brushes her dress and laughs out loud)

More impressions... One from the previous set of maps, and the other two from the current set of maps

WIXOSS: Booster Pack Opening - WX-14 Succeed Selector

Finally caught up to the recent pack! The first booster pack set I bought  as it came out!
And for that, I bought two boxes.

And the results...

Thursday, August 4, 2016

New Game! ヽ(゚∀゚)ノ

And yeah, it is Etrian Odyssey 5. Of course, right? Fuhahahaha!
And since I did start playing in the Demo version, I've already went past the 1st boss. I'll probably not go through each floor by floor like before, though I'm not sure what format I want to document playing through the game.

Culdcept Revolt: Battle Diary 2

I'm currently trying to unlock the Princess avatar, but damn, it is far away. You can get the up to the Strategist avatar fairly naturally while unlocking other stuff, but the Princess avatar onwards is a long grind.

Anyways, some more battle impressions online:

Culdcept Revolt: Story Clear, Cards Completion / Thoughts

Note that the thoughts are only on the single-player mode, not online multiplayer.
There will be story-related spoilers. The first part will be less spoilish and on overall thoughts, and the second part will be more on the characters and story. There will be a large blank space in-between the two parts.
I'll probably also make another post on the characters later.

New Game! - Culdcept Revolt

Well, I actually got the game the day it came out, the DL version. I haven't found time to make an article because I was busy playing the game.

Anyways, having a lot of fun with it, though the new environment is definitely different. Also, the story is pretty long.
Real life WIXOSS and digital Culdcept. My TCG life is fulfilled.

Oh, and one more excellent thing is:
(Image below: Kinda... NSFW? Not really? I'll just go ahead and say it is)

Yugioh: Saikyou Card Battle - First Impressions

My first thoughts on the newest Yugioh game, Yugioh: Saikyou Battle.
In summary, my impression is "You might as well..."

WIXOSS: Booster Pack Opening - WX-12 Replied Selector

Booster pack x 20 (1 box) of WX-12, Replied Selector + 1 extra booster
Oh, and since there is little point in listing the commons, I'll only mention the Parallel, Super Rare, Secret Rare, Lrig Rare cards I got. Also, other notable points if they occur.

WIXOSS: Piruluk Collage

Just a collage of most of Piruluk's appearances in the Peeping Analyze manga for WIXOSS. The reason for most is because I skipped some scenes where her expression wasn't particularly noticeable. In other words, a collection of her facial expressions.
Despite being an "emotionless" character in the anime (and disappearing fairly quickly, never to reappear again until the epilogue), she shows quite a lot of emotions in the manga (and plenty of facial distortions).
BTW, it's a good manga, so read it.
Also, manga-ka is Suzuki Manatsu.

WIXOSS: Booster Pack Opening - WX-05 Beginning Select

For those that don't know, there was an anime called Selector () WIXOSS that aired for two seasons a while back. It was pretty fun to watch, though some settings weren't so solid. I also read the manga (Peeping Analyze), and it was great read. So I heard that they were making a 3rd season! Which excited me, so I thought about starting to collect WIXOSS cards. It's been so many years since I collected cards, when I gave up Yugioh around the time GX started.

The only unfortunate thing is that the game is Japanese-only (and some other countries) and not localized for America, so I have no one to play with. I'm like Mayu, just playing against myself in my room. HA HA HA ha... hah...

But anyways, here are my results from the box (20 boosters) I bought for Beginning Select.
Oh, and I hear you usually get one LR (Lrig Rare) rarity card per box, but I got NONE.

Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse Demon-Dex

Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse Demon-Dex
A collection of all of the demons in Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse, as well as their resistances to the elements and ailments and their affinities with moves of each element.
There are two sets of information, one for the resistances and one for the affinities. Hit the "Switch search type" to toggle between the two.

"Display all information" will bring out the entire chart.
To fit Blogger's structure, I have shrunk the width of the chart, so you will have to scroll with your keyboard to see the rest on the right.

At the bottom, you can search for demons with specific stats. You can also add more search conditions. Other than the simple list of results, if you have already brought up the entire data chart, the demons found will also be highlighted there. This translates to the other chart too. So if you have bought up both charts and search for demons, those demons will be highlighted on both charts.

I believe I have the correct information, but feel free to point out any mistakes. Especially the Famed, since I couldn't check their original stats.

Game Update: Monster Hunter X, Megami Tensei IV Final

Just a random update on the games I'm currently playing.

For Monster Hunter X,
Finally finished getting all of the titles you get for defeating a monster a certain amount of times. You know, the "Defeated 20..." "Defeated 30..." types.
This is my current "Weapon Usage" data. Finally got past the 100 mark for Hammer.

And in Megami Tensei IV: Final, I am currently working on getting my entire party to Lv999.
A long and fairly dull process, though it is all for my waifus. (And a dog and a skeleton, but don't mind them too much)

Megami Tensei IV: Final - Endgame Content (East Madness)

A surprise, but other than raising your favorite demons, there is actually an endgame content to do...
Well, 4 did have certain bosses, but this continues longer.

Spoilers? On the endgame dungeon and the enemies there, I guess.

Megami Tensei IV: Toki dialogue collection

A collection of Toki's lines in battle and on the field, the ones that pop up in text at the bottom of the screen.
I don't have much for her masked version because you spend more time with her unmasked version and there isn't as much opportunity to see her lines at that time. Or perhaps her masked version just doesn't have that many lines.
You'll have to click and display the image in order to be able to read it. Also, translations are just to give an idea of what she is saying. Look forward to the localization for more official translations.

UPDATE 1: Added lines for equipment changes
UPDATE 2 (4/2/16): Added more lines for relic collecting, being idle, random, support attack beginning and end
UPDATE 3 (4/20/16): Added a few more lines. I think this should be all of them.

Thursday, March 24, 2016

Megami Tensei IV: Just a small Toki image collection

Images... Well, more like screenshots of some her lines in the game. And scenes with rare sprites used. And one image? I guess.
And yeah, most of the quality of the images suck because I just use my phone to take them.
As they say, for better, real quality, buy the game yourself and enjoy it!
And yes, lots of spoilers.

Tuesday, March 22, 2016

Megami Tensei IV: Final - Other Neutral Route complete!

And a few thoughts...
Oh, and lots of spoilers of course.
If you noticed that there are no images of Toki, it's because I'm saving every image and such I've collected from the game on her for a separate post.

Megami Tensei IV: Final - Spoiler Thoughts

As the title suggests, some of my thoughts on characters and the story, with spoilers. Plenty of spoilers.

Megami Tensei IV: Final - Thoughts, Review

The overall system is the same from Megami Tensei IV (obviously), so I'll try not to go much into that. Mainly try to focus on the changed features, like the ones the official website (blog) advertised, and the game balance and such.
Also, these impressions are from after completing the True/Good ending/route, so my comments on the story are also towards that route.
More spoiler-based comments in a different post.

No, it's not an eroge

Megami Tensei IV: Final - First Playthrough Complete!

Thoughts, Misc. posts involving game to come!

Monster Hunter X: Size Hunting

Oh how time flies. Still working on my first playthrough of Megami Tensei 4: Final, BTW. I'll make a post on that when I finish.

The Monster Hunter hell of hells, trying to get the Small Crown and at least the Big Crown of all monsters for the achievements.
All luck. Sometimes it pops up right away, sometimes it never pops up... Oh the stress.
It is actually easy to get the Big Crown, since there is a size above that. But the Small Crown doesn't have a sub-small icon. You have to get the smallest types. What's worse is that even though the appearance is a Small, there is a chance you still don't get the Crown, just barely missing it by a few centimeters. Oh that feeling of despair when that happens...

Some of my memoes that I remember for monsters... Since I don't remember all of the English names, some might be their Japanese names because I'm too lazy to go into that heavy, heavy Wiki page to search them up..

Monster Hunter X: 100% Achievements

 Phew... The Big and Small crowns really are difficult to get... But anyways, finally completed the achievements for MHX! Yes!

Some talk and images and stats after the "Read More"

Tuesday, February 9, 2016

(゜∀゜) New game!

Finally that time to start a new game!
As for Monster Hunter X, I'll post an update on a later date.

Yup, Megami Tensei 4 Final; I did enjoy most of the previous game, except the overload of DLC, some that included story content. And they redrew some of the monsters that stood out in the previous game to look more like the standard, with some really good refinements.
So of course I pre-ordered the download version. I'll try balancing out this game with MHX. I also want to do something with this game, though I am too busy to create a whole program like Megami Tensei 4.

Stella Glow: Did you know? (Titles of BGM)

It was recently found out by coincidence, but if you go to Jasrac's website
and type in ステラグロウ (the Japanese title) into the product name box, it will bring out the registered BGM for the game that Jasrac owns(?)
Since there is no soundtrack or in-game music room, this was actually the first time people found out the official names for the titles of the BGM.

That said, there is nothing that indicates what the BGM is for, as the only information is the title. Though some can be guessed. Here they are:\

PS: Sometimes the font goes weird because I copied the text and Blogger did stuff with that font
PPS: I might organize this in a better documented manner tomorrow or so

UPDATE: Added documented version of BGM titles. Please click to enlarge

Monster Hunter Cross: Various Changes of Monsters

One of those "I'm not dead" posts, since I haven't posted in a month. Just busy playing Monster Hunter and not really anything to say. Still waiting for info on Etrian Odyssey 5.
Anyways, I just wanted to write down some changes I've seen for monsters, be it from 4G -> Cross, Low Rank to High Rank, Ferocious.
Feriocious' speed change and changes only in the animation are not included.
