Bravely Default: Flying Fairy Trailer [GO/ER]
Sep 25th, 2012 by Dan

Dumb name: check.
Fantasy setting: check.
Final Fantasy wrapper: …Wait a minute…

Here’s the thing about Squeenix: They’ve been in something of a creative rut. Other RPG devs are just running circles around them (see Atlus’ Persona games for reference) and they need to do something. Perhaps publishing another studio’s game is the right idea. It’s got a job system, which is always intriguing, but we’ll see how this shakes out and whether or not it even makes it to the states. Can you imagine trying to sell a game with that title?

What I’ve Been Doing 12 March 2012 [FB/IB/F/BT/GO]

Mass Effect 3 screenshots

Smoke alarms! They notify us about fires, but they also incessantly beep when their batteries are low. It’s tough to sleep when that happens and you don’t have 9V batteries laying around.

Oh, yeah, also Mass Effect 3 came out this week and obliterated my TV watching.


Wanderlust – Sharing a lot of the DNA from Wet Hot American Summer, Wanderlust was appropriately strange, but also pretty darn funny. I’d put it at 3.5 or 4 stars of five.


Baseball: The Tenth Inning – Rewatched about 75% of this fantastic baseball documentary with Greg. Good times and good prep for the season. Can’t wait!


George & Jonathan – I was turned on to Beautiful Lifestyle by The Besties podcast (“Little Marcus” is their opening/closing track). Great chiptune disc with a lot of variety. Reminds me of Sonic the Hedgehog music a lot of the time.


The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo – Bloomqvist is captured by Martin and there’s still so much book left! WTF!

Video Games

Final Fantasy XIII-2 – The Sazh DLC can kiss my ass. Hours of playing poker to unlock Sazh? Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

Devil Survivor 2 – I love how brutal these games can get. Atlus isn’t messing around. When demons invade there’s no sugarcoating.

Ghost Trick – So very close to being done and plot twists are just appearing and stacking up like crazy.

Mass Effect 3 – Badassfully: Blasto 6 is the funniest part of this game by far! Here’s a tip for any of you who don’t already know: Anytime you complete a mission you should walk around and talk to everyone. They have funny/interesting things to say. Javik, in particular, has an interesting perspective being a Prothean and all. Look for impressions soon.

It’s no secret that I love Atlus games, particularly the ones in the MegaTen mutliverse. The devs behind Persona 3 and 4 have been working on Catherine and it’s looking like a very interesting game.

The End of the Endurance Run [Embedded Reporter]
Oct 12th, 2009 by Dan

Deep from the trenches, it’s time for your Monday video feature: Embedded Reporter.

And were back to the ER after a long time So long, in fact, that I missed the final episode of the Persona 4 Endurance Run. It was a good run and I absolutely loved the series. I can’t wait to see what the Giant Bomb folks do to follow up on this. Farewell Charlie Tunoku.
