I don't feel satisfaction if I play it on Casual. Classic/Hard is the way to go for me, ever since Fire Emblem came stateside.

I'm playing through Birthright on Casual, but planning to play Conquest on Classic/Hard.  I'm enjoying Birthright this way, but it becomes more like a visual novel and less of a hardcore strategy game.  This approach is almost like a harder "New Game+" with a different story.

Thank you! It's no problem. That's awesome you won something! I actually ended up winning a DLC pack, too. :) I really wanted the Guilty Gear or Blazblue/Magical Beat DLC, but beggars can't be choosers. I'll probably just go ahead and buy them now since I got my least favorite one out of the way. Well anyways, It's cool we both ended up getting something for free and not just wasting time. I had wanted to tell them they should charge less for their DLC or to add more songs to the packs, but since they gave me one I thought the timing might be inappropriate. Lol. Well played, PM Studios...

i personally hate srpg's, but am about anime girls, i dont have the patience to play it regularly, love the easy mode and skip animations, was able to be birth in about 35 and conquest in about 25, started revelation but stopped till the dlc is finished releasing, think i will still stay away from srpgs in the future but did enjoy my time with this one

To make Sov jelly.

Project Diva 2nd F is a LOT harder than the first. Ouch.

 

Mirai feels somewhere between that, just right for newcomers and insane hardcore divas alike.

I have problems with Mirai because MS and Nintendo can't come to a universal agreement on where buttons should be.

On a related note, the SNK Playmore official Twitter profile has also revealed a few hours ago that an important meeting focused on The King of Fighters XIV will be held on April 26th in Tokyo.

You don't mean Sony? I think the M$ fanboys would throw up a bit in their mouths if Miku ever made a debut on the XBox One. 

 

That said I'd L.O.L. if Sega ever pulled that off.

MS fanboys are bad people in that case.

And I just want a,b,x,y to be in the same places for both companies. My brain confuses the two layouts since I've used both a lot. Sony's layout uses random symbols so I don't get confused.

Oh it's the curry artist. I like his/her cute style. But aren't they doing that monpiece sequel on android/ios? I don't get why they combine moero chronicles and monpiece under the same series. They should just separate the card game as its own series.

UN Committee Pressures Japan to Regulate Games that “Reinforce Sexual Violence” Against Women

The Women’s Institute of Contemporary Media Culture burned the UN with their retort. Man, late on the news Dualshockers.

 

tl;dr: No. Told the UN to focus on real women first.

 

We are absolutely in agreement that the protection of the rights of women in Japan is important. On the other hand, we think it should be carefully and seriously evaluated whether the measures taken to ensure those protections are valid ones or not. If we are asked to consider whether “Protecting Women’s Rights in Japan” requires us to “Ban the Sale of Manga and Video Games Depicting Sexual Violence,” then we must reply that that is an absolute “no.”
 
Reasons for Our Opinion:
 
Reason #1 – The so-called sexual violence in manga and video games is a made-up thing and as such does not threaten the rights of actual people; therefore, it is meaningless in protecting the rights of women.
 
Reason #2 – In Japan, and especially when it comes to manga, these are creative fields that women themselves cultivated and worked hard by their own hand to create careers for themselves. If we were to “ban the sale of manga that includes sexual violence,” it would do the opposite and instead create a new avenue of sexism toward women.
 
Detailed Explanation of Reasons:
 
About Reason #1 – It goes without saying that the rape and other crimes of actual real people who experience sexual acts from partners without consent is an actual violation of their rights concerning sexual violence and should obviously be forbidden by law, and that it’s necessary to protect and support victims. However, the figures in manga and video games are creative fictions that do not actually exist, and thus this is not a violation of any real person’s human rights. We should focus on attacking the problems that affect real women’s human rights as quickly as possible.
 
About Reason #2 – In Japan, and especially when it comes to manga, these are creative fields that women themselves cultivated and worked hard by their own hand to create careers for themselves.Already in the 70s there were women-focused manga magazines and many talented women manga writers came from them.In this way, before the Equal Opportunity Employment Act for Men and Women passed in 1986, there was already a space where women flourished and had established the “shoujo manga” genre. And of course, within women’s manga, sometimes the topic was of romance and sex […] In this way, it can be predicted that if we were to ban the sale of “manga that depicts sexual violence,” a great deal of publishers would cease publication of a huge amount of works. In the creative field of manga, the effect would be that women who have worked so hard to create a place for vibrant careers would have that place shrink right in front of them, as well as have their efforts negated. In addition, if we were to put ourselves in the places of manga readers the chance to know about the history of the sexual exploitation of women would be lost and method for them to come to know about it. If the creative fields of manga were attacked, trampled on and destroyed with such prejudice, it would damage not only the women manga writers, but also spread to other women creators in the field, as well as the female readers. This would be a sexist punishment that only narrows the career possibilities of Japan’s women
 
[…]
 
Conclusion:
 
As stated above, we cannot say that banning the sale of manga and video games that “depict sexual violence” is valid, even if we were to agree that the goal of protecting the rights of women is correct.
 
There is nothing to be gained from regulating fictional sexual violence. However, while you’re trying to fix the rights of fictional characters, you’re leaving the human rights of real women in the real world left to rot. As well, in Japan, the entire reason we have a media genre such as manga that developed to take on themes such as the sexual exploitation of women came from an attitude to tolerate “drinking the pure and the dirty without prejudice.” It’s because we had the freedom to express our views and with that to express the view of a world of humans that live and die, that there are pure and wonderful things and dirty and nasty things mixed with each other.
 
Manga is a field where women have put in their hard work and effort to cut forward paths and cultivate a place of their own. We believe that in order to protect this place from being trampled on, it will need our continued hard work to pass it on to the next generation, and it is this effort that will link to the greater freedom and rights of women.

JAST is the king of missing deadlines.  I don't think they've ever released a game on schedule.  Though I suppose that accidentally hiring a translator that doesn't know Japanese will do that.

If we're banning media with sexual violence against women maybe we should test the waters by banning shows like Law and Order: SVU and 90% of Lifetime movies, and see how that goes over with their audiences.

Banning Lifetime could only be a good thing.
