  • Oof, that is probably like the third or fourth worst birthday to have, but I hope you have a good one all the same.

    Thanks! To be honest, it was kind of a bummer when I was younger, but I've since been enjoying it (and some restaurants give me free Halloween themed sweets if I say so beforehand, so that's nice lol). I hope you have a good Halloween night.

    Was browsing r/Berserk when I found out Kentaro Miura passed away on May 6, and news of it just came out. My heart goes out to his family, and may he rest in peace. Berserk will still be known as one of the best dark fantasy series thanks to him.
    You have watched ALOT of anime!

    I've had a lot of time throughout my life, and especially now since I can't go back to work yet (if at all). Gotta get to my plannings list after my current shows end.

    Though my completion list is still rookie numbers, I've met one person on AniList with over 8,000 anime completed.

    Yup, and from what I've seen in forum threads there is someone that apparently has more than that. It's pretty crazy.

    Well, I do hope you still read my month-old message. You could carry over any replies to it here, if there's anything you'd like to say in response or just to continue the conversation where we left off.

    Good on you for getting new Switch games! For myself, I didn't receive any games directly, but I got a $35 gift card for GameStop that I used to get Vampyr for the Switch (priced at just $30) and a pre-owned copy of Assassin's Creed: Rogue for the Xbox 360 to round out the remaining value two days past... only to find out they were apparently on some kind of sale, which left me with a few dollars remaining on my gift card. :LOL: As it happens, GOG is having an on-going Winter Sale that I mentioned in our previous conversations that started on the 16th and will end on the 4th of next month, so this would be the time to grab the games I recommended to you, if you haven't already, plus anything else that might interest you while you have the chance. I haven't gotten anything from GOG myself yet, either, but I've been keeping tabs on cPRGs from the last decade that I should now be able to run smoothly on my new gaming computer while they're still on sale, namely Pillars of Eternity II and Pathfinder: Kingmaker.

    Happy New Year! Here's to hoping for a better year.:)

    Neat! I didn't even know Vampyr was also on the Switch, might even put it on my wishlist for the system. But cool that you got games still! As for GOG I did indeed picked up some games for the sale, mainly Star Wars and a few others though I have yet to really play any (MH has been eating up my time lately, especially since now I can't go back to work for now, again). Also I'll finally get to play Baldur's Gate sometime Thursday or Friday morning, so pretty exciting to be getting to that soon.

    Also a Happy (late) New Years to you as well. (and don't worry I read your other post after this one, we can continue here if you want instead)

    I'm glad you didn't miss the GOG Winter Sale, and I hope you enjoy the SW games I recommended to you (plus more?) when you get to them! I, myself, also got a few cRPGs during the sale before it ended, which I also mentioned in the appropriate thread, plus another game that I used the few remaining dollars on my GameStop gift card to buy yesterday. I couldn't believe that I went through three other games that happened to be out of stock at GS before I finally settled for The Witcher 3 on the Switch. 0_0 Well, I'm sorry to hear about not being able to work right now...and hopefully all these lockdowns will end soon.

    Great to hear that you'll be starting Baldur's Gate soon! Before you begin, I have a few pieces of advice for you.
    - Baldur's Gate I is a low level D&D campaign game - in that you'll only be able to reach about level 7-9 or so, depending on your class, by the time you finish the game, and only if you do as many quests as it takes to reach the exp. cap (which is 89,000 in the vanilla game and was raised to 161k in the Tales of the Sword Coast expansion pack, if you decide to install that right away). Because of this, battles rely more on the RNG than tactics to decide the outcomes. Just something to keep in mind when you start.
    - It's for the above reason that I would STRONGLY suggest you choose to be a Fighter for your character class. Fighters are the most straightforward class and excel in low-level AD&D, due to their decent starting HP and ability to equip any weapons and the heaviest armors, giving them the best chance of survival. I understand that you like to play mages in RPGs, but Mages in BG at level 1 start with only 4 HP and will only be able to cast a few level 1 spells once per day, so I would definitely not pick that first. A Paladin is also a good starting class, due to their ability to use a few low-level Cleric spells and Turn Undead skill, but a Fighter gets more HP and will be able to use a few spell abilities because of a plot-related spoiler.
    - I would also suggest you equip as many characters in your party as you can with ranged weapons - bows, crossbows, slings and darts - due to how overpowered ranged weapons are in BG's engine, with one bulky fighter with a solid melee weapon to draw the enemies' attention.
    - Lastly, while I understand that you had fun with the Dark Side path of KotOR, I would advise against playing evil in your first playthrough of Baldur's Gate. Instead of your CHAR's alignment being affected by your choices, BG uses a Reputation system (similar to Fallout or something like that). Evil choices drop your reputation number which causes merchants to jack up the prices of their wares for you and turns city guards hostile to you when it gets too low. Just play the adventure straight and be a hero.
    I really hope you like the Baldur's Gate series! If not, I'd understand. Baldur's Gate isn't for everyone, but it's possibly the richest and one of the most rewarding RPG experiences for those who do get through it!
    Funny that you start using a FT avatar after I got the game.

    Maybe I'm mixing things up? The way the wiki described something from the game made me think it was an RPG (that was years ago, though). Might also try the DS games, but lack of Japanese knowledge and walkthroughs for the special characters makes me think I should skip them (for now at least).

    The PSP games do look more like RPG's to be fair, though I'm only basing this off of screenshots. The DS game I have is Madoushi Kessen, so I didn't even know for the longest time till now that there was another one on the DS. It's fun though not fully understanding Japanese, especially the first time I played it, made it kind of confusing at first, but it goes by arc so my knowing of what happens and playing it years after it's release made it easier; everything else was simply trial and error.

    Makes sense.
    I just read your bio, I agree with the best lords section, but you forgot alm :p (and I say this as a diehard archenea fan, marth kind of sucks)
    Side note: do you have discord?

    Ha I was contemplating putting Alm as well but he just became more neutral on my list of favorite lords; he's still my favorite between him and Celica though. Marth is kind of lame yeah, I don't hate him though but out of every other lord he's just kind of bland, fun to use in Smash at least.

    I do but I haven't even logged on in a long time, I only really used it when I was a mod on another dead former Pokemon turned anime site, I don't even remember my password :oops:; luckily I do have it saved somewhere though, I'll just have to find it when I'm not being lazy after work lol.
