nocturnal YL: And the DX version has the usual game speed changes too. It remains to be seen if the adverse balance changes are detrimental to enjoying the game, but basic story completion at Hardcore difficulty is pretty easy by series veteran standard. May 25, 2024 6:23:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I've finished Atelier Shallie DX. I'm still in the middle of the item preparation process, and I finished the story to unlock the higher difficulties (which lead to better items). Shallie is incredibly grindy at the end, behind only Nelke and Firis. Jun 1, 2024 23:40:51 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: You'll need alchemy level 99 to reach the highest quality, and making every item once doesn't get you anywhere close to that. You also need to rely on random drops, which means repeated boss fights. Jun 1, 2024 23:42:55 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: The synthesis puzzle is very fun, but doesn't make up for the tedious preparation process. Compare to Sophie 2 or Ryza 3 giving out best traits late game, Lydie & Suelle having them all in DLC, or Escha & Logy where the grinding doesn't involve fighting. Jun 1, 2024 23:45:57 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Fire Emblem: Three Houses has the oldest Anna in the series (probably), while Fire Emblem Engage has the youngest. It's an interesting contrast. Jun 12, 2024 10:22:26 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I like how Engage suggests that all of the Annas are just a big family that span across multiple worlds. Jun 12, 2024 18:55:19 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Almost done writing the text for my review. I still have to do double-checking and pick screenshots. This will be a long post, though not longer than my Surge Concerto DX review. This should be done in a few days, I think…? Jun 17, 2024 12:10:56 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I like that Nintendo said this Direct would be for games launching in 2024, and then announced a bunch of stuff for 2025. (Full thoughts later.) Jun 18, 2024 9:52:04 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: NVIDIA is hailed as one of the most advanced tech companies, but here I am, trying to figure out why CUDA doesn't work with my browser or my vector graphics editor. Jun 21, 2024 11:38:35 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: For some reason, AI-generated articles and videos tend to start the final paragrah with "in conclusion" like English students doing writing composition assignments. This makes those articles rather easy to detect as AI-generated. Jun 22, 2024 12:55:28 GMT -5 *
Nester the Lark: In college, if I ended a paper *without* using the words "in conclusion," then the instructors often assumed that the last paragraph wasn't intended to be one, and they would call me out for not having a conclusion. Jun 22, 2024 14:27:38 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Or maybe I'm actually bad at writing conclusions. Funnily, I would get praise for my introductions. Jun 22, 2024 14:28:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I was looking to see what my previous thoughts were on SNK Heroines, but it doesn't seem that I actually wrote much. Jul 6, 2024 10:00:36 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Ironically, making a thread about why I don't play fighting games has led me to playing fighting games. Jul 12, 2024 8:02:53 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I still feel like maybe I should've bought the Miss X DLC for SNK Heroines. I suppose it's not too late, but I'm already getting a little tired of it, and I'm moving on to Smash for Wii U in my exploration of casual-friendly fighting games. Jul 14, 2024 8:24:29 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Ah, Smash Wii U, where bosses and CPU players can casually take me down. Certainly a casual game. Maybe I'm just bad at playing this kind of game and you'll do better. Jul 14, 2024 9:51:12 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I still haven't moved on and I'm currently still doing Atelier Shallie DX postgame stuff. I can make better items than the guides I read in some cases, while in others I'm still missing specific item properties. Jul 14, 2024 10:59:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: After playing Smash, it's clear that what SNK Heroines really needed was more game modes. Particularly single-player game modes. Jul 16, 2024 16:53:49 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Somehow, I think I've gotten better at playing Smash. Jul 19, 2024 11:20:25 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Apparently, SNK is working on a new Art of Fighting game, as well as a Samurai Showdown action-RPG. They casually mentioned this during their developer panel at EVO. Jul 20, 2024 13:59:09 GMT -5
