Stargate SG1 is very decent, but it's real function is to get you into Stargate Atlantis which is amazing.

And Farscape is an aquired taste, it's not a bad show and I enjoyed watching it, but even then something always felt off to me. It's in a very strange place of cheese.

Enjoy Babylon 5, a true classic and still one of the best. One of the very first non-soap shows to establish serialized storytelling. The first season was terrible, but it's worth suffering through it for the rest (much like TNG was in that regard). You should also watch Star Trek DS9 for the same brand of edge of your seat storylines.

Shenmue III! http://bit.ly/saveshenmue (Also Last Guardian)

Wow. That would be great. Though I have to wonder. The original cost 70 million to make. What do they think they can accomplish with 2 now?

I finally managed to get Firaja, but I only survived the first boss with only Cloud left and he had like 5HP...
And for the second fight I had to reset 5 times to get rid of the sin spawn without loosing someone on turn 1. (Tipp: If a battle goes badly, force close the app. It'll allow you to do the battle over from the start without losing Stamina. It's a cheat, but for some insane stages like this, I don't feel bad about using it as a last resort. Especially if I have to spend Mythril healing after the first boss).

Holy craaap. The boss rush they just added isn't gonna happen for me. As with Phoenix in the last event, I don't care that much about summons anyway.

In good news, I managed to collect 50 Mythril. Just waiting for this current draw event to have a day with equip I want. Looking for Terra's or Vanille's SBs specifically.

If anyone wants to add me my code is 9efR. I have a few Lv50 chars, but they don't have any equip soul breaks, so they are probably uninteresting to use for now, but who knows where they'll take the system in the future. I have item soul breaks for Black Mage and Bard, but they are still Lv1. I'll level them up when I have nothing else to do, which might be quite a while off...

So many opportunities for Mytril right now. The quests, the new events, the revamped dailies give clear rewards all over... Going to save up for the 11 draw for the first time, usually I'm not patient enough for that.

I'm not a huge arcade gamer, but everytime I do open up Mame for whatever reason I end up playing NeoGeo games pretty much exlusively. They have the perfect balance between presentation and playability. Newer stuff emulated on Mame is usually butt ugly early 3D and I was never a fan of Street Fighter so SF3 doesn't get me to ignore NeoGeo either.

My favourite is Garou - Mark of the Wolves.

Maintenance is ongoing right now.

And it looks like the official wiki has been taken over by KKK and hentai images, I guess that happens when you take the kid's toys away for a few hours.

Facebook likes isn't really metric for anything.

Before that were was a celebration for 5 Million (!) downloads in the Japanese version alone.
The (International) Android version has 66k ratings. The Android store puts the number of installations in the 500k-1M bracket.

I wouldn't be surprised if the number of downloads globally and across all platforms crossed into double digit million territory already.

Also, even if it was only 1.1M earnings, that would still be a profit, considering this game was extremely cheap to make. But I'm sure they made a killing on it and continue to make it.

You have no idea how insane some mobile players are. You can't approach this with a hardcore gamer's logic, those people don't play by our rules :) They just throw tons of money at useless things. I played quite a few F2P games over the years on the side (Star Trek Online, Marvel Puzzle Quest, Neverwinter, some Game of Throne thingy now this) and it's always the same mechanisms. It may look illogical to us, but all of those games were successful with a businessmodel based on asking a ton of money for little in return. If 1% of the playerbase is retarded enough it's sufficient to carry the other 99%. The F2P industry runs on the principle of exploiting "whales".

They profit from the rich but stupid people who'll buy 3 or 4 11 draws in a row in order to get that new soul break they want. It's sad. I would prefer it myself if there was something in the game I could get at a reasonable price to support the game. But currently the only way to spend money is to throw it away. 25 bucks with a very real chance of getting nothing but crap is just not a worthwhile offer.

There are four lights!

Tenba, his arms wide.

The line must be drawn here!

Of course, presumably Phoenix can multi-revive and inflict fire damage all at once.

It can be crafted too so you can check out the description in the crafting menu :) It revives one dead party member and is AoE, so you got it mostly right. The combination with revive is indeed very neat, but still, 1 use is just too much of a waste of a slot IMO. I could almost craft it too, only missing one 4* summon orb.

What I could really use is a AoE heal. But I think those only exist in special weapon soul breaks so far  :-\

You could jump straight ahead to the Phoenix stage afaik and ignore the others for now. I read it has 180k HP though and I just don't have enough ice skills to even begin to scratch that, even if everyone of them hit for 9999 damage. But eh, I don't care, I never use summons, not worth it for the limited amount of uses they have and how rare summon orbs are. I'm happy having finally crafted Quake and Bladeblitz last week, that's enough AoE for most fights.

I am, what does the friend feature do?

We'll know Monday. The annoucement says something about sending one of your heroes to your friends. I'm guessing there'll be bonuses involved, maybe it's a 6th party member. I hope it doesn't replace any existing one, that could make it pretty unattractive if you already have a pimped out team.

So is anyone still actually playing this? Looks like they'll roll out friend features on Sunday/Monday.

Do you have any evidence of this?

Do you actually watch movies or do you just fantasize about how they supposedly are?

Here is a good overview over how violence in movies has developed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-NeJRrgoTY

P.S And also don't forget about the constant sex & nudity scenes every 5 seconds in every modern R rated movies!

Which Rated R movies would those be? Nowadays nearly everything gets toned down to PG13 to reach a larger audience. To watch a Rated R movie you really have to go out of your way and look for one. Why would you do that if you don't like them?

I play new games when they excite. I usually only play old games when something, it might be an IRC discussion, a podcast, or a news article losely related to the series, reminds me that they exist and gives me a craving to play them. So currently I'm playing Witcher 3 which is brand new, but for the next game I'll play I have Persona 3 Portable lined up, because Persona Q on 3DS made me want to play that.

Oh and as a general rule, I almost never replay a game I've beaten before. Considering how many completely new games to experience there are, it's a huge waste of time. The only exception being games that are in my absolute Top10. I do replay stuff like Jagged Alliance 2, KOTOR or System Shock 2 once every few years. But those are the exception to the rule.

There are lot's of things that can draw someone into an RPG. Story (Xenogears), characters (Shadow Hearts), mechanics (SMT). If some people go so far and will play a 40 hour game just because of the music, then no one will stop them either.
MQ still fails at RPG, story and mechanics though. It doesn't matter which you value, it'll disappoint in every single way. Stuff like being able to avoid battles is just an incidental side aspect that can't negate a broken core gameplay - terribly boring one-dimensional combat. There is really nothing to reward you for going forward. No awesome characters to meet, no surprising story twists to see, no awesome battles to conquer. Just a stream of endless meh.

All the points that were supposedly good about the game (except the music) boil down to: the game can be played from start to finish without crashing. Congratulations.

hehe One of the main reasons why I kept going with this is because I assumed that this was one of those cases where most people's opinions were being warped by what is usually heard about the game rather than the way it actually is. It's easy for that to happen some times if the right people speak loudly enough and there is no one to effectively counter their point.

If your driving along a road and everyone is driving towards you, maybe it's YOU who's going the wrong way. Also possible at least...

Seriously, if people have to reach for "the grass tile is not hideous I guess" to say something good about the game, you know you are in trouble. Saying FFMQ is good is like saying E.T. is good because if you read a FAQ you'll see that there kinda is a point to the game after all.
