I like Taco Bell. But I only get to have it maybe once a decade since there are no Taco bell locations here in Newfoundland

@  Foffy the Sheep : (24 May 2016 - 08:53 PM)

I think he was in my liver, actually.

@  Locoman : (24 May 2016 - 08:45 PM)

Brian Kilby was in our hearts the whole time.

@  Echowarrior : (24 May 2016 - 08:05 PM)

I'm definitely not Brian Kilby.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2016 - 06:04 PM)

Taco Bell has proven to me that god is truly dead.

@  Paladin : (24 May 2016 - 12:21 PM)

http://uproxx.com/life/taco-bell-fried-chicken-shell/ i hate this & also want to eat this.

@  Benbot : (24 May 2016 - 11:11 AM)

I'm familiar with him but I still don't get the joke.

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 08:07 AM)

Aw, you ruined it.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:58 AM)

@robowang, I would have laughed at the joke if I knew who is Brian Kilby

@  Benbot : (24 May 2016 - 07:48 AM)

Everyone quickly say something so it scrolls down

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 07:48 AM)

I love this board. I'm still convinced you're all Brian Kilby.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:47 AM)

beetleman, if you read this I'm not saying this as a fact, it's just a thought.

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 07:42 AM)

*Beetleman logs on and reads this*

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:40 AM)

I think beetleman might have a mental disability of some sorts. I'm not saying he definitely has but if he really does, you guys should be a little kinder to him. That would also explain why he says he is a 19 year old but his parents are overprotective. I'm not saying he definitely has but it's a possibility. Or he's just a 8 year old that says he is an adult.

@  Touch My Thighs : (24 May 2016 - 05:00 AM)

No need to ban him, just remove his ability to post new topics. Problem solved.

@  Msol : (24 May 2016 - 01:01 AM)

So what's the over/under for when beetleman is banned?

@  Telly : (24 May 2016 - 12:26 AM)

is the christmas/holiday special in the latest mtmte trade? or atleast mtmte's segment of that comic

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2016 - 05:12 PM)

He tried to introduce himself once, but then he was compelled to kidnap himself and nobody's seen him since.

@  Paladin : (23 May 2016 - 04:53 PM)

wait, what about Candlejac

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2016 - 04:45 PM)

All legends are true, except for the ones that aren't.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (23 May 2016 - 04:39 PM)

The Nightitme Secret Aardvark exists?! I though it was just a legend!

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2016 - 04:28 PM)

Well, maybe. That depends on you, really. What you do behind closed doors is none of my business. I'm not the NSA.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (23 May 2016 - 04:24 PM)

Your nights shall be completely shame-free, however.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2016 - 04:16 PM)

Nope. You will bear the shame of this for all of your days.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2016 - 04:09 PM)

I'm watching plenty of TV, but I'm doing it all through the internet.

@  tffan01 : (22 May 2016 - 03:38 PM)

no.

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2016 - 03:03 PM)

is anyone watching more web original shows and streamed TV shows than actual TV channels?

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2016 - 10:49 AM)

I wanted to charge my book, but couldn't cause my brother was charging his cigarette... the future is stupid.

@  Pennpenn : (22 May 2016 - 09:05 AM)

I hate that situation where you spend ages to find something, then realize it isn't charged, but you can't find the charging cable.

@  Locoman : (22 May 2016 - 09:00 AM)

Only cartoons I keep up with are RID2015, Rescue Bots, Adventure Time, Steven Universe, and Rick & Morty

@  Locoman : (22 May 2016 - 08:59 AM)

no, I don't really watch cartoons on tv no more

@  tffan01 : (22 May 2016 - 03:54 AM)

@Locoman, have you watched the cartoon I was talking about (Supernoobs) though?

@  Telly : (21 May 2016 - 10:34 PM)

"Chaos is bad for business, y'see." depends on the kind of business youre in...

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:34 PM)

Unless we're talking about the guy from Hunger Games, President Snow. He has feet.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:33 PM)

Snow doesn't have feet. It's just piles of frozen water.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:29 PM)

you wish, bud. let's see those bastards operate under six feet of snow

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:28 PM)

What I got out of that was that Canada really wants to have a plague of locusts unleashed upon them.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

y'see, under canadian law all broadcasting corporations operate under a mandate that at least 40% of the content they broadcast must be Canadian content. Naturally, this applies to kid's cartoon channels as well, which is a fairly niche market these days. So animators slap together very cheaply animated flash cartoons and air them in the daytime hours to fill the quota. Hence endless reruns of Johnny Test, Almost Naked Animals, etc.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

Chaos is bad for business, y'see.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:17 PM)

You're a criminal mastermind. Shouldn't you want to wreak havoc?

Well, I'm guessing that there won't be a huge amount of people interested in this, as PS3 seems to be the least loved current system around here, but this game is truly awesome, so I'm going to rant about it anyways.

My friend downloaded the demo while he was over a couple of weeks ago, and I had to curse him because after only a few minutes playing I knew I must own this. Cue an early mornning trip out to Gamestop.

It's taken me from then till now to actually beat it. My time shows around 60 hours, but that's deceptive on a couple of fronts. One is that I often had to go back and retry missions(easily an hour down the drain when one goes bad near the end), and the other problem is that I have a habit of leaving the game running while watching a tv show or eating.... Actual game length is prob in the 40-50 hour range.

Anyhow, it's a turn based stategy game, a little bit like FF Tactics. Cept here you're running around each turn almost like you're in the middle of a call of duty game. Each turn you get a set number of command points to move your troops. When you select a unit, you move them around third person, and you are actually under live fire while moving. You can stop, aim, and shoot any time during this turn, and can move as far as the action points for that unit will take you. Hiding in grass and crouching behind sandbags help give you ways to protect your units during the other turn as well. You go on a variety of missions, from stopping giant tanks to storming town streets and fortresses.

There are five classes of soldiers, and also your team of officers, who are mostly made up of these classes, plus the tank commander. The classes are scouts, engineers, shocktroopers, lancers, and snipers, each with thier own strengths and weaknesses. Though later on the scouts become a massive force to be reckoned with. You pull your troops from an available pool that expands out to 50, though you only ever have 11 units on the field at maximum. Each unit has a name, a little backstory that gets bigger as you continue to use them, and even their own voice in which they tend to say a few lines. I grew quite attached to my troops, and managed to go through the game without permanently losing a single one.

There are some mystical parts, but mostly it's an in the trenches tanks and soldiers war game, though with a pretty upbeat cast of characters. There's some emotional parts, some really fun parts, and some parts which will make you want to tear your hair out in frustration.

The art is wonderful, and the first thing that seemed to draw a lot of people's interest, including mine. It stays great throughout the game, and though a few of the cutscenes are a bit cheaty on showing action, overall they are very well done, especially since it is a strategy type game. And speaking of cutscenes, my lord. If you like lots of story, this will not dissapoint. The game plays out through a book, most chapters having 1 battle and a few having 2. But each chapter also usually has 5 or more little cutscenes. A few of the videos are quite awesome, especially when the much dreaded valkyria and a few superweapons show up.

Anyways, if you enjoy tactical games like this, I highly recommend picking it up. It's easily the best RPG that's been on the ps3, and is probably my favorite game for the system so far.

It is a shame the game hasn't sold well. I really love this game. The icing on the cake for me was the inclusion of Vyse and Aika.

Arise from the ashes!

 

So the PS4 remake is coming out tomorrow. Though I already own the original PS3 version, mine is already on its way and should reach my doorstep tomorrow. :)

 

Anyone else here buying it?

Funnily enough the PC version of this sold quite well, so that's nice. It's got a good port too.


Like if you went to hell, and it was full of blood, and that blood was on fire, and it was raining blood, then maybe that would be enough blood! Eh… but probably not.

I might. I already have a copy on the PS3, though I haven't played it yet. (Well played as in really sat down and invested in it. I know how it plays) 

 

Might get the port when it's cheap enough. I'm guessing there isn't much extra added.


It's a secret to everybody

I got the PC version.. Love it.

 

It's sad that a game about a fictional WW2 -like- war is actually tackling more of the issues than real WW2 games do.

I still haven't played the game yet due to long work hours, but boy was I pleasantly surprised to have gotten the Limited Edition Squad 7 Armored Case version of the game. Can't wait to get started on playing the game this weekend.

Played Chapter 4. The initial unit-shuffle is going all Darcsen Hater on me, as I ended up with only one Darcsen available for use. :p Said Darcsen is one of my mainstay engineers Nadine, though, so it's all good. :thumbsup

 

Also, B-ranks all around so far, which is making my unit level progression much faster than before. :D
