I can relate, Retro. I'm struggling to find things post-JoJo.

Which is why I'm here: I finished the first season of JoJo's Bizarre Adventures. It was spectacular. The second part had perfect pacing and the story was quite interesting and full of twists. The fights were fun, albeit it had way too many "Just as Planned" moments, where JoJo places a trap apparently when no one was looking, but even that gets better in terms as it goes...or at least becomes part of the spectacle. The characters were cool, too, and it had a nice ballance of silliness, drama, and sheer rediculousness. Joseph Joestar in particular was a great character because he's supposed to be a prankster/goofy character and he just plays it up most of the time. He never feels overpowered, nor does he ever come off as an idiot - he's always thinking of new tricks, just as a good prankster should. I definitely recommend watching it, even if that's the only part you see. (Though Part 3 is most famous so I assume that's good, too)

You mean Eternal Summer? I still haven't had the chance to watch the second season.

The site I watched it on called it Everlasting summer for some reason, and It just sorta stuck with me D:

I keep picking up, and dropping Noragami. I sorta wanna watch it but when I start I just get bored.
Is this show worth watching?

No. It started good, then went in a stupid direction by episode 7.

I meant to start this on the 16th but I was still waiting for Black Friday news, but now that all that's out there, I guess it's safe to take a break for a while. I want some time to really focus on stuff like art, writing, reading, etc. as well as playing more games and watching anime, and I think I've been using the internet in general way too much, and not just here.

So...see you all on the 19th. Sayonara!

Games I can't get into because they aren't my bag:

  • Any Fire Emblem before Awakening and after Gaiden
  • Ikaruga
  • XCOM
  • U.N. Squadron
  • Everything Kirby (except Kirby 64, which is just a bad game)

Games I can't get into because they are terrible games yet people still swear by them for some reason:

  • Yoshi's Island
  • Final Fantasy VI
  • Super Mario World
  • Atelier PS3 games
  • Golden Sun
  • Super Smash Bros. Brawl
  • Secret of Mana (almost did, then I finally realized that the mechanics are terrible to the point of being barely playable)
  • Panzer Dragoon Orta
  • Sin & Punishment 2
  • Dark Souls
  • Demon's Souls
  • Metal Gear Solid 4
  • Super Mario Galaxy
  • Baldur's Gate
  • Bioshock
  • Skyward Sword
  • Majora's Mask

Not ever platformer needs super-complex systems. Sometimes simpler is better, especially for platformers. The more complex the machine, the easier it is to break, after all. Some of the best platformers I've played rely on one mechanic and just go as far as humanly possible with it.

Even though I don't agree that Puppeteer is simpler than LittleBig Planet unless 3 added some new mechanics I'm not aware of? Because LBP just has jumping, climbing (which only works half the time >_<), plane-shifting (which is completely unecessary here), item collecting, simple physics puzzles, and some gimmicks like ropes and jetpacks. Maybe not as simple as something like N+ or VVVVVV, but Puppeteer has most of that except the plane-shifting (but instead utilizes the environment in ways that makes sense, especially within the context of the game) and the climbing mechanics actually work. Plus it has: multiple heads that all have unique gimmicks, and the heads act as lives/rings, keeping you alive; scissor mechanics that also lets you fight enemies and do certain environmental puzzles; and it has a story that's kinda neat and not just random globe-trotting. The first one alone adds a lot of depth to the experience.

Still would be nice if somebody was doing a decent 3DS XL sale. I might get one for my bro? But all they got is a pack-in with Mario Party. Freakin' Mario. Party. That's an anti-incentive if there ever was one...

I never feel like I'm qualifiied for these threads since I'm as up to date with video games as I am with anime...which is to say I'm not. I haven't played much of any game that came out this except Shovel Knight and Teslagrad? Well, I'm playing a bit of Smash now, but other than that...nothing. Unless I'm forgetting something important...oh yeah, Bravely Default. That was Febuary, right? I guess that's my GOTY by default...

@Kevlar44 - I agree that a partnership would be beneficial, but I don't see either benefiting from a buyout (I still question if that's even possible, since Nintendo is Japanese?), especially while Nintendo's so expensive.

I don't get why it's the "cool" thing to hate IGN. If anything, they pull LESS BS than other gaming news sites. They give every company a fair shake, their reviews are good enough that you get the point without looking at the score, and they mostly work on news. Not saying they are perfect, but compared to Gamespot, Kotaku, and Polygon, IGN is great.

Honestly, they used to be terrible, but Now IGN's getting better. Not a ton better, but quite a few of their old hats left to become straight up PR guys for Playstation and Microsoft (and some Nintendo guys even left to work on Nintendo-related projects, like NF Magazine), and the new blood has helped to shake things up and address some of the issues here and there that have plagued them for years. Trust me, though, reading them from 2007-early 2012 was just painful more often than it should've been.

Knights of Pen & Paper +1 (iPad) - This is surprisingly addicting. That makes the 10th iOS game I've really enjoyed.
Smash Bros Wii U - This is moore fun than it has any right to be.
Yoshi's Island (GBA) - The more I play of this game, the more I realize it isn't a very well-made game. Jumping's annoying, exploring's tedious rather than fun....those damn Lakitu's...and I got into No-win situations where I was forced to shut off the game at least twice so far and I'm only on World 2...

Plus the levels are way too long and the game is so slow-paced yet the levels are too dangerous even early on to be relaxing, so it just feels like a Mario game is slow motion more than anything else...

@Kaze_Memaryu I liked the sack puppets I think their cute but everyone has their own opinion. :)

Although the other games CanisWolfred and Peach64 mentioned are appealing as well. I've just come across "Mario Maker" and I know this is likely not news for most if not all of you who will be reading this thread but I am newer than most I imagine. It doesn't provide a new series to play it does satisfy part of my interest in "Little Big Planet" with it's own level creator and I'm sure as it's a Mario game the platforming will be solid. Maybe I'll just wait for it to be released and dream of "Kirby's Epic Yarn 2"...

Eide x

I dunno if you're aware but Yoshi's Wolly World is a thing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vR8EHatIIE

And yeah, Mario Maker looks like it'll scratch that creative itch while also being a good game.

A demo would be great, since then you can see whether or not you'd handle the mechanics. The singleplayer level-design-wise gets gets better as it goes, but the basics remain the same, and that's where I personally felt it was most flawed.

To be fair, the PS3 has Puppeteer, which is by far the better platformer. But yeah, there aren't as many quality 2D or 3D platformers that you can't get on the Wii U, but there's enough of almost anything else (well, I find the JRPGs on thePS3 lacking, but the good ones are fantastic, and there are still more than on the Wii U).

It's a good tool box, but the physics are floaty and inconsistant, which as a platformer is unforgivable. I simply cannot stand playing it when it actually requires me to jump or move between planes, which the singleplayer does a lot of. If you want to play user-generated content, it's probably great, especially the not-platformer ones. Just don't go in expecting a decent singleplayer platformer...

I'm sure this has been asked before, but does anyone know if there will be more Gamecube Adapters available? Every Gamestop and Best Buy employee I've talked to has said it's "pre-order only", but I don't recall Nintendo saying anything about that being a limited item, and I can't find anything from a quick Google search saying either way.
