RIP Star Ocean: Anamesis

That's too bad. Never really got into it, but the in-game character models were well done.

RIP Star Ocean: Anamesis

It was fun at first, but when they kept repeating events over and over it was pretty clear the game wasn't going to last.

 

Won't be surprised if Valkyrie Anatomia is the next to shut down.

That Star Ocean game was generous at the least. I got bored very quickly though it looked nice.

I regret giving Edelgard the dancer class.  Totally wasted on her.  I should have given it to Felix or Petra since they are sword users which would be better suited to the class.

I haven't been lucky with pulls for a few months, but I managed to pull maid alter with my last 30 sq. Pretty freaking happy since shes one that I've been waiting for. I likely won't be getting anything good for a while now.

Spent about 250 quartz and 40 tickets and didn't get a single Summer servant. Really wanted Umu Caster, but I'm not throwing more quartz at that cursed banner. Need to save the rest of my 300 quartz to hopefully get my own copy of Merlin next month. Been playing for a year now, and the one thing I've been getting constantly is Lancers. Have Scat, Titoria, NP2 Karna, Tama Lancer and got Enkidu from GSSR last month.

Just sent a request, my Master name is ユキ.

 

Haven't rolled in FGO NA for months, so I had a bunch of quartz saved up. Saved them for the Maid SAlter banner and was lucky enough to get her. Slowly going through the event, man it has a lot of dialogue...(plus playing a bunch of other mobile games as well :( )

 

Also, 35 hours into Fire Emblem and I still haven't gotten to the timeskip yet...I'm really trying to level up everyone's support rank as soon as possible and recruit other members into my house. Been enjoying it so much, will likely be my game of the year.

Kinda disappointed that Mary Skelter 2 is digital-only, but I guess we should be glad it's releasing over here at all. Plus, having a remastered copy of the original game included is pretty neat. I'll likely pick it up.

Given the way the kickstarter has gone so far, I'm just gonna assume no.

I'm guessing no.  I'm so done with Kickstarters for video games.  We got the game made so we should be getting the best stuff with the physical game and regular retail should be getting the base game, not the other way around.

 

Sorry, I think we did get an exclusive cover or something (I forget).  Awesome.

Kickstarters for video games are OK, but I've burned at least 3 times now. Maybe these games I backed will be delivered after 5+ years right?

Well I did shell out extra to get my name in the credits, so I guess I'll have to be happy with that.

But I actually want the mirror more than the steel book.

I have ended up on the edelgards route for three houses.  I kept a save before the church route though so I can go back.  Will probably be faster than starting over for that particular route.  I don't feel like they really justified the player picking this route writing wise.  Just doesn't seem like there was enough story stuff to have you on this route.  Not that I feel the church route didn't have it's own problems.

 

Pfft Black eagle strike force.  :D  and Ed spent all night thinking up that name.  She is just a cute girl under all that huff and puff.

Only backed Muv Luv. 

 

Did donate $1 for Grisaia for that possible Vita port. And we all know how Sekai Project handled and fked that one up.

Spike Chunsoft sale on steam right now. Of note, the zero escape games are discounted a lot more than they've ever been before at $8 for the whole trilogy. Previous lowest discount was $22 for the trilogy.

 

Fanatical has the Bento Bundle 2 for $5. It's got a few good titles, but Astebreed seems to be the standout title here. All positively rated games across the board.

Kind of shoot myself in the foot for not recruiting a lot of people before time skip. When it first hit, my tank disappeared due to the storyline, boy, did I struggled.

Agree.  I ended up going down the same route due to playing without a guide and..

Spoiler

 

I was doing the same thing and keeping a save before the story branches.. only to later accidentally write over the save slot.  :wall:   Being restricted in save slots is something I detest in any game.. but being limited to 5 in such a branching game is miserable.
