    That reminds me of some cursed shit I read today in Journey to the West. In the country of women there is a river with so much Yang energy that everyone who drinks from it immediatly becomes pregnant. That is the reason for why the country needs no men. If men however drink from the river they become pregnant aswell.
    Finished SMTIV. It was pretty good, if a little boring setting/story wise. The gameplay is top-notch. I still don't get the notion that Naraku was way harder than everything else. The game had a pretty consistent challenge curve to it, I thought. The Hordes can hurt you even if you're a much higher level. I thought Pluto's dungeon was more challenging than Naraku for sure.

    IV A has even better gameplay and even worse story/setting. My big hopes for SMT V are that it reaches the golden middle between III and IV when it comes to gameplay and story quality.
    dacencora
    Agreed. Nocturne has really cool characters and a very cool setting. IV's gameplay is just a little better tuned. Very fun. I do want to try IV:A soon, but it'll probably be after I play V.

    It seems that V has taken over the most important parts that IV A brings to the formula, so thats a sound plan.
    I plan to drop everything for V aswell.
    It's indeed intimidating since theres like 30 years of them, but ironblooded oprhan is a stand alone, so any watch order will work.
    Watched Gundam 0080 War in the Pocket. Not what I expected, unsure what to think about it. It definitly made an impact.

    I am a bit intimidated by the watch order, I plan to cross all the famous ones in some way or the other however.

    No idea how to "get into" Gundam, so I'm just kind of avoiding it.

    War in the Pocket is a 6 episode OVA, and Mr Pink recommended it as a good entry point, so I started there. Next I plan to watch the original 79 show, because that is a prerequisite for everything. After that idk tho.
    It appears Japanese filmworkers are not represented by IATSE. Enjoy!

    A grave consequence of your strike will be the global proliferation of anime. Weeb supremacy will come!
    Begrudgingly I accept that YS 1 is pretty dope.

    Hey I gave YS a second chance. It is the fanbase's fault that most say I have to play this bumpy mess before Origins. I am genuinly enjoying my time running through wolves and shit tho.

    I've only played Ys 1, and I really love it.

    I don't read posts from people who say absurd inanities like

    "I've never found drinking more to really help"

    Drinking more ALWAYS helps. ALWAYS
    Just read the Akira manga. I expected more, everyone always says it is significantly better than the movie, but it was only even in quality.

    It eludes me how we hadn't had a proper adaptation of the original manga in so much time, for it absolutely deserves it. Not a timeless masterpiece for sure (characterisation in particular is rather weak and the story arrives at nothing in the end), but it would make a decent action anime.

    Hmm, I really liked it. I thought the art and paneling was especially good.
    Man, I don't get it. Naraku in IV was a cakewalk, but I keep getting my ass handed to me in Nocturne. The Ongyo-Ki fight in Nocturne is bullshit that goes on for far too long. Comparatively, the only boss that has given me trouble in IV is Ose.

    Stronger monsters is a must. Changes the difficulty from sub Final Fantasy level to one of the best balanced Dragon Quests of them all. Very precisely tuned for series veterans. The other ones range from preference to masochism, I like no xp from weaker monsters just as a hint for me when to attack a boss.

    J-just like... avoid encounters, bro!
    I really ought to replay 11...
    dacencora
    By the way, Ose is a pushover. You just have to hope you survive the first round of Fatal Sword attacks.
    Be brave little one.

    Ah, well. He's a very nice lad, I'm pretty sure he will find a way to overcome it!
    Could also be worse, Imagine being Venetian or, may God forgive me for even uttering the word, Milanese!
    House at the Edge of Time is not that bad.

    As for the encounter design, with how stupidly many high level magic items you get I didn't have that much trouble with those encounters NJClaw . Nuking a pack of Wild Hunt for 300 aoe with Wail of the Banshee or frying ghosts on their weak con save with 100 damage Stormbolts doesn't get old, even on Hard diff. There are way too many OP metamagic sceptres.
    Ontopoly II

    Keep in mind most of the encounters in that dungeon are optional if you understand the fog puzzle. As gamers we are obsessed with killing everything but we don't actually have to. Especially since you won't be leveling up at that point anymore anyways. I thought it was a great end to a great game

    Now that you say it, I did finish the one where you play as 4 different Links, because it was free on the estore one day. That was neat.

    Four Swords Adventures? That's like saying: "Yeah i played Elder Scrolls. The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard."
    dacencora
    Try Link's Awakening or A Link to the Past. They're both on the 3DS eshop. If you really like Awakening, you could try the Oracle games, but yeah Four Swords is not exactly beloved by fans of the franchise.

    Yeah that is ass. The original Japanese only DS game is pure turn based with full party control, the entire combat system for the PS3 version is lazily slapped on.
    I have yet to get to pretty much the entirety of the Sega JRPG catalogue, but I have time on my side.

    Shining the Holy Ark is a comforting game to have in your "to-play" list.
    If you ever come to Croatia promise me you won't be that faggot who drives 60 km/h everywhere

    I have neither car nor intention to come to Croatia in the near future. So sure, definitly!

    Croatia is a weird place. People reserve parking spots with rocks and expect others to accept this insane act. What the fuck.
