  • I just beat Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2. It was a decent game - it reminded me of the best of Naruto, but also the worst of Naruto (even with their roles expanded, the supporting characters didn't get much to do, especially Gai's team).

    Still, there was far more good than bad. It was fun, it did a good job with expanding on the story, and I'm glad that I accomplished my goal of beating it before One Piece Pirate Warriors 4 came out.

    The series holds a spot in my heart now because Pirate Warriors 3 is the straw that broke my back to get me into One Piece. Me and my friends had so much fun playing the game but we were always saddened by only 2 player options. Warriors 4 having upwards of 4 people co-op online just made us so dang happy so we don't have to 'leave one out' when we want to play.

    Good to know! I've been reading One Piece weekly since the CP9 fights (that was back in 2006 or so?), so it holds a special place in my heart alongside Dragon Ball. Still, I haven't played much in the way of One Piece games (I got Burning Blood, Unlimited Adventure/World, and the Grand Battle games that came out in North America, and I played some One Piece games in order to rip the sprites from them), and I'm interested to see how much of the story this game covers.

    Pretty sure Warriors 4 covers Post Dressrosa up to Wano? That at much is certain since Pirate Warriors 3 ended at Dressrosa, I believe. Not sure if they're going full ham and covering from beginning of series to current. If they did, well...damn. I'd be one happy boy.
    I've played a bit of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 on the Switch - enough to finish the Rescue Gaara arc. While the combat is, for the most part, pretty straightforward, the cinematics and story (and the super moves) remind me of why I liked Naruto.

    Unfortunately, the game also contains the part of the story where I started to dislike Naruto (Sasuke vs. Itachi - from that point on, the Uchihas got more focus than everyone else, up to and including the title character, for a large portion of the series), so we'll see if that sticks.
    I got a box set for Doctor Who today - it seems to cover the entire run of the Ninth and Tenth Doctors. Not sure when I'll find the time to watch all of that, but it seemed like a pretty good deal, and not something that I expected to find in my area.
    Beat Dragon Quest 11! (though I still have to do post-game content to complete the defeated monsters list)

    I've only beaten two games in the series so far, so the montage covering the whole series in the end credits will be lost on me. Of the two that I've beaten, this was easily the longest. (Dragon Quest 1 was 8 hours, while 11 was 108 hours)

    I also have Dragon Quest 3 on the Switch, 8 on the 3DS, and 9 on the DS, though 9 seems like it's much more focused on multiplayer.

    - Zero Requiem - - Zero Requiem - it was a lot of fun! I was concerned that, with an estimated 100+ hours of playtime, there'd be a lot of padding, but it felt natural. While the game was pretty straightforward/cookie-cutter to start, it had some twists and turns that I didn't see coming (even if one of them was spoiled by the Smash Bros. spirit board). Plus, 100% completing the monster list has been easier than I expected. (I only have seven more to go)
    A third season of DLC characters was announced for Dragon Ball FighterZ - Kefla (Feb. 28th), Ultra Instinct Goku (Spring), and three others.

    Not a fan of Ultra Instinct Goku (it seems lazy - he marks the fifth playable Goku, not counting fusions, Goku Black, or fusions involving Goku Black), but at the very least, we'll get at least one awesome Dramatic Finish out of it. Kefla's a great choice, though I'm aware that she's a divisive character (along with the characters who fuse to make her).

    Hmm, I guess not yet. Also, good point.

    Not sure what Bamco and ArcSys are doing by only showing off only the first two fighters, I'm not sure just how much that would get fans onboard with the idea of this new batch.
    Megadoomer

    That's how they handle season passes for most games, and how a lot of games handle it in general. The main exceptions that I can think of are the third season of Street Fighter V (which consisted of a lot of fan favourite series veterans like Sagat) and BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle (which uses a lot of reused sprites from other Arc System Works games)
    KirbyWorshipper2465
    KirbyWorshipper2465
    The SFV example was done because of season 2 being weird even by season pass standards; almost everyone there was previously an NPC, or so incredibly minor that no one expected them in the first place. Didn't help that Ono openly likes to mess with fans in general.
    Just passed the 90 hour mark in Dragon Quest XI. I have a few more areas to revisit before I continue with the story. I've beaten over 600 types of monsters, so the Defeated Monster list is getting full. (My main goal, aside from beating the game, is to fill that).

    Plus, I'm nearly done with the Tickington sidequests - just two more to go! (One based on Dragon Quest 1, and one based on DQ2). I don't play in 2D mode much (the random encounter rate seems quite high), but the enemy sprites are great.
    February 20th is looking to be a good day for releases of older games on the Switch. I was already excited for Devil May Cry 3 (especially since they added the ability to switch styles in the middle of gameplay), but there's also a collection of 18 River City Ransom/Double Dragon games coming out that day, along with the Sega Ages version of Sonic 2.

    Not sure what the Sega Ages games add, and I'm not sure what the games in the collection outside of River City Ransom and Double Dragon 1 are like, but I'm interested, and I'm going to look into them when I find the time.
    With Marvel vs. Capcom 2 being a main stage EVO game this year, I hope they announce re-releases of Capcom's Marvel games (or at least their fighting games) on modern consoles. (or Marvel vs. Capcom 4, but I'm trying to keep my expectations in check somewhat)

    I've only played Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and 3, and I can't download 2 any more so I'm stuck with the trial version (the full version is on my brother's Xbox 360, from when the game was available digitally). Plus I missed out on the Marvel vs. Capcom Origins collection, and I wouldn't mind being able to play something like X-Men: Children of the Atom or X-Men vs. Street Fighter.
    About to head into Mordegon's base in Dragon Quest XI! I doubt the game's done yet (there's several Tockles that I can't access yet), but I'm doing pretty well with the game's bestiary (monster list) so far.

    The Tockles could be post-game, but I've been to every location in the world, and yet no location is listed for most of them.
    Just encountered my first major difficulty spike in Dragon Quest XI - the Auroral Serpent. It paralyzed the only dedicated healer on my team for at least half a dozen turns (Hero works, but he can only heal one person at a time and this thing hits my entire party). If not for the inactive characters jumping in automatically (something that I wasn't aware of), I would have lost.

    Guess this is a sign that I'll need to level grind. Thankfully, I'm trying to find a rare enemy in the northern ocean, so I can hopefully kill two birds with one stone.

    Question before you fight it again: how many of your party know Dragon Slash? That should be pretty useful against it, especially when boosted by Oomphle. What’s more, Double Dragon Slash is an amazing Pep Power against this dude. You could break through a good chunk of his health with a single use.
    Megadoomer
    Megadoomer
    Three of my party members knew Dragon Slash (the Luminary, Sylvando, and a more spoilery party member), though I only knew about Sylvando when he jumped in. (for most of the fight, my party was Jade, Rab, the Luminary, and Spoilery McSpoilerson) My bigger problem was dealing with status effects - when Rab is my main healer/stat booster and he was paralyzed or knocked down for most of the fight, it made it much more challenging than usual.

    I did beat it, just to be clear, but that fight has me feeling like I need to prepare more in order to take on future bosses. (my team's currently around level 45-50)
    How is Rivals of Aether? I'll probably wait until the Switch version comes out, but the main things that I know about it are that it's made by the guy who made Super Smash Land (a Game Boy style Smash Bros. fan-game, which had Mega Man before Smash itself did), and it's got Shovel Knight and Ori in it. (Guest characters tend to be a big draw for me - no idea why)

    Any game where you can play as the Goose from Untitled Goose Game is a good game in my book.

    Pwnz0rz Man Pwnz0rz Man shame that it's just a community creation as opposed to being an official part of the game. I suppose I could get the PC version, which would support that, but I prefer consoles for games that involve platforming.
    Pwnz0rz Man
    Pwnz0rz Man
    That's true. For me, I'd already bought the game and the Goose as a community creation was just icing on the cake.
    Played a lot of Dragon Quest 11 yesterday. The game went in a completely different direction from what I expected, and it reminds me a lot of Final Fantasy 6.
    I played some Dragon Quest XI this afternoon - it felt like I spent half an hour fighting evil umbrellas, trying to get a super-powerful golden umbrella to show up so I could complete the area's bestiary. Is this what Shiny hunting in Pokemon feels like?

    Also, finding the Silver Orb was really anti-climactic compared to the first three. The Purple Orb was a bit better, since I had to go through an extended side-quest that builds up the character that appears to be the main villain. (I've only beaten Dragon Quest 1, so I'm not sure how twisty the game gets with its villains)
    Naruto was brought up when I was tutoring (the second time in about a week, oddly enough, and a different student from last time), so I got to recommend My Hero Academia to the student (they're the one who asked me how it was - it's not like I forced that recommendation on them).
    I beat Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night! I 100% completed the map, sidequests, and enemy list - I might aim for 100% completion for items at some point, but I'll wait until the game's patched first. (it doesn't seem like it would be tough, but it would require a lot of grinding and RNG)
    I'm 98.9% of the way done with Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, if the map completion percent is any indication! There are a few areas that I can't reach yet (mostly ones that are blocked off by solid walls that I can't break, so I'm assuming I need a power-up), but I've beaten four bonus bosses (three behind locked doors, and the bonus boss that you get through DLC), and there are only four unknown enemies left in the bestiary.
    Making a decent amount of progress in Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. I found an underground desert, and I'm currently about 60% of the way through the game if the map completion and enemies list are any indication.

    The game has a couple of hidden secrets! There's an 8bit Castlevania segment, and I actually needed a guide for the true final boss, because there's no way I was going to figure that out lol. Good luck! The game is awesome.
    Megadoomer
    Megadoomer
    I found the 8-bit Castlevania sequence, though even the level itself is too tough for me at the moment. (I did get two enemy shards when I was in there, though - I used a waystone to exit) I know there's a Dracula-like IGA boss somewhere, since I got the DLC, though I'm not sure where.

    I've reached a lava area, though I'm not sure if I'm prepared for it. I'll backtrack to grind for recipe items so I can boost Miriam's stats.
    KatKit
    KatKit
    That 8-bit part is hard, regardless of your progress lol. You got lucky with the shards though, it took me a few attempts to snag different ones. The lava area is also a pain in the neck, but the song is dope at least. Grinding for recipes isn't a bad idea.
    Made a decent amount of progress in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 today; I'm currently trying to unlock the final character, whose name I won't mention because it's kind of a spoiler, though I might need to level up my team first. (it requires you to fight at least six bosses, three at a time, and each time one boss dies, another one shows up)
    Rewatching Star Wars Episode 3 to prepare for the sheer magnitude of over-acting that is Emperor Palpatine. (Though I won't be watching the Rise of Skywalker for another week) The opening holds up well in terms of the chaos of a full-fledged star war, though the overuse of CGI stands out quite a bit. (I wish they used more physical effects - everything seems so artificial, like a video game cutscene that looks nothing like the gameplay) Even R2D2 looks less believable than in the original movies.

    Lucas in general is not one that should get too much control. Even in Empire Strikes Back, where he had the least involvement (pre-Special Editions and beyond), some of the musical tracks were used in inappropriate moments (e.g. Yoda's theme coming up during Luke's confrontation with Vader, of all times).

    Direct Lucas involvement is fine in small doses.

    Work was rough today, but on the plus side, I have less than a week left until I'm on vacation, and I beat Spyro 1 with 120% completion!
    I made a decent amount of progress in the Spyro 1 remake today; I'm up to 75% for the game's completion percentage! (not sure if the Skill Points, which seem to do nothing, count towards that) Enjoying it so far; Tree Tops was a hassle to get through, and it's annoying when there's only a single gem/group of gems in an area that I can't find, but I have no nostalgia for the franchise and it's still a lot of fun.
    Just watched the first episode of the Mandalorian. I can already see why the Asset (not sure what other non-spoilery name I can refer to that character as) quickly became the internet's favourite character.
    I just beat Mega Man X3 for the first time! The final boss was pretty tough - not as bad once I figured out his pattern, but his attacks still did a ton of damage. Looking forward to trying X4! I've only played a bit of that, but I like what I've seen so far.

    Did you find the Golden Armor and the Z-Saber?

    - Zero Requiem - - Zero Requiem - Golden Armour, yes. Z Saber, no - I wanted to beat all three of the bonus bosses (Bit, Byte, Vile) with the X Buster only, since each one has an achievement tied to beating them that way. I know that the achievements don't count for anything on the Switch, but from what I've read, getting the Z Saber would lock me into what seemed like the bad ending.
    I made decent progress in Mega Man X3 today; I beat three of the stage bosses, along with two bonus bosses (Bit and Vile), and I'm only missing the body armour upgrade, one Heart Tank, and the Golden Armour. Byte's a bit of a pain, though - I'm having a tough time with beating him while only using the Buster, though maybe if I try a different stage, I can farm for health items beforehand.
    Beat Rodin in Bayonetta 2 on the Switch! It took longer than I'd care to admit, but with that out of the way, beating the game on the highest difficulty should be easy by comparison.
    Trying to fight Rodin in Bayonetta 2. The keyword there is "trying" - he may not be as hard as Fire Leo from Viewtiful Joe (whose attacks, on the highest difficulty, one-shot you and could only be told apart by slight differences in growls), but he is still lightning fast and hits like a truck.
    So I want to take over the Master Core thread, but my first post is 2 years at least after it was created. Can you help me with this?

    MarioRayFalcon MarioRayFalcon why do you say that one in particular? I've tried getting into the older Castlevania games (1 and 4), but the difficulty was too much for me. (I enjoyed Symphony of the Night and Aria of Sorrow much more) I haven't heard much about 3, though.

    It's a full adventure, multiple playable characters, but if the first Castlevania was too hard for you, you may want to play the Japanese version
    Hey, I have one more question regarding Gruntilda’s battle. On the last phase when the Jinjonator rises up, and Gruntilda starts firing fireballs at a rapid rate, what is a good strategy to avoid those fireballs?
    Megadoomer
    Megadoomer
    Admittedly, I took quite a few hits at that part - this was where the red honeycombs from getting most of the notes and Jiggies in the game came in handy for me. Looking up videos of a no damage run, it seems like your best bet is to keep moving and jumping to avoid the fireballs, and don't worry about the Jinjonator at that point. After she fires the homing shot, use Wonderwing to block that, and she'll pause for a long time, which gives you a chance to fire eggs in order to activate the Jinjonator.
    I LOVE how you took down my Zoe thread but there's still probably dozens of Goku support threads.
    Megadoomer
    Megadoomer
    You probably should actually look into that sort of thing before making comments like that, considering that there are only two Goku support threads, and both of them are locked because the rules clearly state that characters have to originate from a video game. It's one of the two rules specific to the newcomer discussion section of the forum.

    Sorry. Was just angry. I really wanted to get people to consider Zoe a viable contender, even though, well, she's not. Again, sorry. : (

    Can you please make new dbz icons such as Metal cooler and 4th, Saibaman, Cell Jr, Appul,Raspberry 1st form cell, Nail, Regular android 13, Android 19, Buuhon, Saiyman 1,2 and if u can just other super sayian or frieza forms of Goku vegeta gohan(furture) trunks frieza or characters from Super

    Megadoomer
    Most of those sprites (4th form Cooler, Appul, Raspberry, Nail, base Android 13, Buuhan, the Great Saiyaman 2, Super characters) don't exist in Extreme Butoden.

    Champa, Vados, and the Universe 6 team from the U6 vs. U7 tournament were added as support characters through a Japan-exclusive update, but I don't know if it's even possible to add something like that to the game's ROM. I'll do what I can, though.
    Damn All your Dragon ball icons are rad can u do Kid Gohan, Lord Slug, Garlic Jr, Tapion, Zarbon,Dadoria, Supreme Kai, Videl, Pan, King Piccolo, Blue, Ginyu Force, Babidi, and Nova and Eis shenron
    Do u have more of the dragon ball icons for the roster maker (Whis,Android 17, Goten, Kid Trunks, chiaotzu)?
