Phantom Dust is one sharp-looking game. Did not expect it to look that good. The art director knew how to manipulate what they had to work with.

The music is also pretty boss. I am digging all the references to classical (and I believe Romantic era?) and folk music.

So you know, you can replace any of the 7 or 8 arenas' themes with your own music if you rip CD's to your Xbox (or 360). Ooooh, shit, I should rip the Nier soundtrack and use music from that. Amazing OST with some god-tier boss fight music, would go great with Phantom Dust combat...

Btw, if the campaign mode starts to feel 'dry,' limit yourself to maybe an hour or so a day. It's definitely worth at least one playthrough. For one, you get an awesome story with more mindfucks than Silent Hill 2, and secondly, you just keep finding better and better Skills that can be used in multiplayer. Heavy battles (40 HP) are awesome. (and about the only way to survive for more than one hit if some asshole like me is making the most of Dance of Death.)

YES WE DO. I don't even care if the story sucks ass compared to the original game. I'd love to see a new Phantom Dust game, perhaps a bit more balanced out this time. Some of those Skills were pretty cheap, albeit fun to rend your hapless opponent with.

Doesn't sound like a bad idea...I should get around to playing more Nier.

That sounds like what I'm doing, as I currently don't have a huge amount of time for vidya.

Even though I haven't played a whole lot of it, I'd have to agree.

Played Mortal Kombat demo.

Really good, even though me and my one friend are still terrible at fighters.

Sweet, you have Steel Battalion too? Damn, that game is hard... But yeah, the 360 is backwards-compatible with Phantom Dust if it's updated. Protip: Stack some Heats (Nature), some Meditations (Ki) to balance out the aura recovery downside from Heat, then use High-Speed Punch (Ki) for up-close ATATATATATATATA punches and Rapid Cannon (Optical) for some Vegeta hand-lasers from a distance. Also keep a Tiger's Strength (Ki) on hand to use before doling out the harshness, and a Glacial Wall to screw your opponent over even more. This had to be my favorite deck for multiplayer, due to its versatility. Ideally, you'd want to end up with all your Heat and Meditation buffs before heading out with High-Speed Punch/ Rapid Cannon/ Tiger's Strength/ Glacial Wall, so you don't have to lose any of them to buff yourself more.

Alternately, if you want to make the most of Dance of Death (Ki), follow a similar strategy with stacking Heats and Meditations, then equip three Swift Punches (or Hyper Ki Lances) but don't use them; keep them on hand so Dance of Death will use their combined ATK power. (why I prefer Swift Punches, since it blocks you from accidentally using them if you're above aura level 2) If you want, you could substitute one of the Swift Punches for a defense skill, or better yet, Lightning Speed (Ki) so you can rush down your opponent with DoD. (A Heat-buffed DoD attack with two or three Swift Punches can easily do upwards of 20 damage, making it a dick move unless you're playing a Heavy battle.)

Hope this helps. Also for the final battle, make sure you create a deck similar to the first one I mentioned, since you need one deck that will last you for three battles, two of which are forced long-range.

Yup. For sure.

And I'll keep those things in mind. I'll try updating my 360, as well as those decks and strategies.

So.... 3DS. I can totally see the 3D. It looks fucking AWESOME!! my sister, however, cannot. She said it just looks blurry and she can only sort of see it with the 3D slider up one click.

Kingdom Hearts for the first time, lol (where have I been the last 10 or so years).

I'm really angry about it too, the bosses are so hard. I've been trying to beat Ansem,(would that be considered a spoiler..?) but he keeps beating me and I never have enough time to heal. Ughhh. T_T It's so frustrating, and what's worse is that you can't skip the cutscenes.

I've been playing the one on the DS with Roxas (I honestly couldn't remember the name of the game to save my life). It would be a lot more fun if it had controls that made sense, a better camera system, and if Roxas and Axel didn't have phallic-looking ice cream after every mission while exchanging innuendo-y dialgoue about how happy sucking on ice cream makes them.

Isn't that what Kingdom Hearts is all about these days?

Anyhoo, I haven't really been playing much of anything lately (still trying to get over my trip to Japan, ha ha; and to think, I could have gone to PAX instead, yeargh), but I did download the demos for Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 and Mortal Kombat.

It feels really weird being able to jump in a Bionic Commando game. The actual jumping mechanic itself isn't very smooth, either, though that might have been intentional.

Mortal Kombat feels like, well, Mortal Kombat.

Beat Persona 3 Portable again spending about 60 hours on the fucking game. D/Led that Dissidia 012 prologue to hold me over until Tuesday.

Console wise, I'm in the middle of a move, so it's only been the MK demo, MvC3 and ME2

Oh god, I forgot the best part too... Roxas keeps a freaking diary in which he writes about having ice cream with Axel. The other day there was some part where he was by himself, so he wrote in his diary about how lonely he is without Axel but still does the ice cream thing anyway even though it's not the same without him and his hands get all sticky and taste salty.
There was also dialogue in which they described sucking out the white creamy salty stuff from the center of the ice cream popsicle thing.

Seriously, you guys, I'm not gutter-minded or anything like yaoi fangirls are, and if I feel like this dialogue is vaguely dirty, I can only imagine what the fangirls think.D:
