Honestly, the thing I hate most about Kirito is that he's technically married but yet still has a harem. You think after marriage that would be it right? To Asuna no less.

I dislike Kirito because there's nothing unique about him except he's (apparently) rly good at video games and because of that everybody is in love with him, including his sister.

That's why I always tell my sisters that I'm not very good at video games. Better to be safe than sorry.

I am pleased to announce that the Blue Reflection steam page is up.

If you want the special cross game costume dlc, you have to buy it in the bundle on steam. No gmg discounts for me.

I hate the fact that Kirito is basically a god at everything he touches. Ingame he can solo raid contents that dozens of the best other players can barely handle, beat the best players consistently (Aside from Yuuki who decimated his bitch ass), and in the real world he's some godly coder/computer science wiz who can create magical devices to allow his creepy virtual daughter to interact with the real world and other bullshit.

 

He's not an interesting character, he has no interesting past, and no interesting trait. Yet somehow everyone falls in love with him, and his bitch ass wife lets him walk around with a harem of girls constantly "tripping" boob or ass first on his face.

 

He even managed to ruin one of the most interesting characters, Sinon.

Couldn't say because I would never watch a series with that kind of name, but I doubt it.

He's a shit tier character for sure. Like he gets killed in the game but then tries really hard and comes back to life...that's not how games work. He always wins and it makes absolutely no sense.

 

Can't say anything about Sinon. I didn't watch season 2 because...why would I? Kirito is in it.

Just like Season 1, it starts off good then goes to shit, then somehow ends with what is by far one of the best arcs of the first 2 seasons (Mostly because it focuses on Asuna and a new group of players, and its really emotional)

 

I still get kinda butthurt with how he beat SAO, he was dead, then not because he really didnt want to die, then he wins. What? Not to mention Yui basically hacking ingame for him too and giving him and his friends an unfair advantage. (Like somehow carrying over ALL his shit into Alfheim)

I'm playing it and loving it. It looks the best, plays the best, sounds the best, and has the best story of all the current gen of Ys console games IMO.

I have many of the other Ys games on Steam but none that I've tried have grabbed me like Ys VIII. After almost 40 hours on Hard, the only bad things I can say about the game are the graphics, such as the water, aren't so good in certain spots and a few of the boss fights were a little irritating. It's definitely on my short list for GOTY.

 

I need to figure out what I'm going to play next. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is really tempting, but I'd like to play that with someone yet the usual people I would play with aren't buying it anytime soon. I enjoyed the demo for Monster Hunter Stories so that's tempting, although I'm not quite feeling like going through that now. I don't want to touch Blue Reflection on launch after getting burned a little bit on Nights of Azure by buying it early.
 

 
Yeah, Grimrock doesn't have that high of a difficulty due to how you are able to move in combat. It's more of a puzzle and secrets game than for combat alone like Etrian Odyssey. Though I liked Grimrock 2 a whole lot more than the original. You might try Lords of Xulima if you're wanting something with a little bit of challenge combat wise. It's not a First-Person Dungeon RPG though.

I've got Original Sin 2 but I haven't played much of it mainly due to how strong of a grip Ys VIII has on me. I'm also actually not sure if complicated games like OS 2 are my thing anymore. I used to love Baldur's Gate and the like back in the day but now I would rather just sit back with a controller and play something less involved. I did really enjoy Lords of Xulima though.

Kirito has the cool factor that appeals to the general populous, but otherwise, not really.

 

Smartphone reminds me more of Hayate from Hayate no Gotoku than anything else.

Funny thing is, Hayate vs Smartphone, Hayate might win.

LOL this^^

But it was (poorly) explained that since Alfheim used SAO's game engine, that's why his shit was able to get transferred over, yes hacks, but still.

Also I try not to take anything too seriously when watching anime and just enjoying it for what it is. I liked Kirito at first, but after rewatching the series a second time, that started to fade real fast. They really should stop calling it SAO though, since it was only the first half of season 1...

whoknows you should at least watch the first half of season 2, if you enjoy star wars. That's all I'll say on the matter.

The first arc of Season 2 (In Gungale), along with the technical 3rd arc (Mothers Rosario) are both amazing. The middle arc is just typical harem boring bullshit.

 

Also yeah, I hate how little of the stuff gets explained in the anime to preserve Kirito's badassery/unique-ness. In the video games and their lore they explain the reason Kirito (And a handful of other characters) can Dual Wield ingame is because of a hidden achievement/leaderboard for having the fastest reaction times ingame or something. Also they explain that characters can create their own unique skills/combos (Which only Kirito and Yuuki seemed to do in the anime)

A little surprised that Monster Hunter World is coming January 26th for a worldwide release. The PC version is delayed to a later date which isn't surprising, but I'll probably end up getting it on the PS4 since I have more people there who I'd play it with. Hopefully I can get into it as I had issues getting into previous entries because of the frequent loading due to small areas and most of them being handheld.

 

Hopefully newly announced games from TGS aren't over a year out since it often means we'd have to wait two years.

 

 

I also wonder a bit if FFIX is the mobile port or if it's a real port. If it's the latter, it'd be nice if they overwrote the shitty mobile interface port they put on the PC with a decent one. They wouldn't do that though unfortunately.

Dragon's Crown is friggin' sweet, but I'm able to get together with three other friends to play local multiplayer basically never.   Everyone has kids and families now.  I love how that game is a throwback to arcade D&D.   The one time I got a few people over for multiplayer on PS3 the one annoying thing was everytime each person in the party had to visit the NPCs individually in order to buy and sell loot.  Everyone else gets to take a timeout while one player micromanages. Same with the equip menu.    Those were the things that really could have used an overhaul, like let everyone interact at once.
