Final Fantasy X and 2 it is. Though I neglected to mention SMT IV and IV:A.

My computer struggles to run vanilla Minecraft so I don't even bother with Steam. My Surface tablet can run Path of Radiance on Dolphin reasonably well though so maybe I should look at something relatively modern on here.

path of radiance: some pretty fun maps and a moderately interesting story at first. but the 5 support dialogues per character across alllll of their potential support convos is crippling. the little base vignettes with ike are good but come on

You ever, out of the blue, wake up in a pleasantly harmonious state of mind? Where you can suddenly think and see clearly, as if a long dormant part of your brain remembered to turn on? And your imagination is back, and things don't seem so bad, and life almost makes "sense", and you can do things?

Before not too long sinking back into mental languishing and hopelessness?

I am going to make a post on Mass Effect Andromeda.

When it came out, I got it as a birthday present from Lady VG. I had said before release that seeing some of the weird glitches and stuff in the reviews/previews did not bother me and make me think it was pretty campy. I played for a good few hours and reached EOS and then my PC at the time broke and I took a while to get a replacement. I pretty much played only PS4 and switch until last year when I ended up getting a brand new machine.

After hearing the rumours of a full mass effect trilogy remaster a week ago, it reminded me that I had never finished Andromeda and to be honest I had not been bothered by a lot of what people were saying at the time. So I reinstalled and began playing again (from the beginning) a few days ago.

I have just finished the part where you total recall EOS and I have to say that divorced from that expectation and anticipation as a follow up to Mass Effect that this game sits in a really weird position between good and fine.

It is really obvious that frostbite was either a poor engine choice or that the developers had no experience with it because the animations for normal things such as walking and running look weird. In fact Ryder and the characters seem to move more like FIFA players. The facial animations for all human characters are weird. Mouths move unnaturally and you are lucky if they sync up to the words. Eyelines also seem all over the place where often my Ryder is staring at people's foreheads when she talks to them.

There are numerous glitches too, like the weird heat haze around important characters who are standing ready for me to chat, or the times I see highlighted objects/people flicker in and out.

However none of this is a dealbreaker to me. I am not troubled and I forget about these things happening because I am enjoying everything else. Somehow the spirit of exploration, the feeling of a wide open universe that Mass Effect 1 brought is here in the game. I always felt ME2 (and ME3 by extension) closed the vastness of the potential story to such narrow bands that I have always held it against the game. Andromeda being this new unexplored place with these worlds that I get dropped onto with the Nomad (Mako surrogate) is recreating those feelings that ME1 stirred. I welcome it so much! It is no secret how much I loved Mako exploration in ME1 and again, the changes ME2 made to the series are the reason I hold it so much lower than 1 or 3.

Andromeda feels as though they took ME1 as the baseline and tried to do something from its skeleton. This is most definitely a thumbs up from me!

The music is subdued and I have yet to hear anything stand out like uncharted worlds or vigil or normandy. The combat alternates between clunky and smooth depending on the environment.

I know I am not that far in (only EOS main objective is done) so things could all unravel and shock me without warning at any time, but I am currently enjoying a B Movie style game in the Mass Effect theme and really, that is enough right now.

I never played Blinx, but I did play Blinx 2, which had a cool surprisingly elaborate character creator and a neat mission structure.

You played as a team of 4 fully customized Time Cats who would go on time missions, as well as a team of 4 customised Heist Pigs, who work for a pig that Iím guessing was the villain of the first one. The cat missions were like 3D puzzle platforming, and the pig missions were chaotic stealth segments.

You alternated levels working at cross purposes, and maybe occasionally fought each other as mini-bosses, then fought a big time demon or something. I donít even remember Blinx being in it, but he must have been, surely.

These aren't models of any anime in particular (at least not that I'm familiar with), but I found these 2 pics of these 8 foampunch robot model kits and I tried reverse searching for them but all I found was this website idk anything about. I was wondering if maybe someone in here recognized the models and could give me a name or something to look them up by.

e: I only stumbled across those because I was looking for these robot models that Five & Below used to have years ago and I lost my originals last year so I was hoping to get them back and those puzzle robot things came up during the search.





Thankfully I've found versions of those on ebay (though unfortunately marked up over the original store version's $5 per kit) but now I'm trying to find those other mysterious bots. I don't know if they're from the same creator or company or what.

Has anybody seen those "puzzle robots" before or has anyone have any clue who the creator is? I want them but I'm not sure exactly how to even find them, if they're even a real thing being sold legitimately anywhere.

50 thousand people used to live here. Now, it's the Mushroom Kingdom.

FFXIV Starter Edition is now free on PSN and it comes with a 30 day subscription.

I've been sort of waiting them to redo the Realm Reborn storyline since I've played it once on a lost account.

But I guess this is as good time as any to do the base story and get on with it.

Thank you, I appreciate your help, but That's not what I'm looking for. Sorry. I'm legit appreciative that you tried, please don't think I'm ungrateful or anything like that.


My problem right now is that I can't seem to find the original creator of that merch.

This is where I'm at right now:

Years ago I found 3 "DIY 3D Creator Battle Robot Series" robot model kits from the store Five & Below. Upon looking them up and finding them online, I've found other similar products under other names that seem to be related to that series. I've found numerous other companies and sites selling various kits but it is all in a foreign language that I can't read or understand and I can't even tell if any of these sites are legit. I'm guessing that what happened is that some original company made the designs and sold them to be marketed by another company, but they've sold different designs to different companies and not all of them are stocked in America.

I'm basically just wondering if anybody can tell me who the original manufacturer is and if there is a legitimately not shady means of getting their model kit things. I've found a few other kits that seemed to be sold under other names, like this one here.

https://www.amazon.com/Tyrannotron-.../dp/B0049U14NY/


I'm just not sure what to look for since I'm not familiar with legitimate online stores that would carry the manufacturer's stuff and the fact that so many of them are sold under different names makes it hard to find them. It feels like I'm trying to trace a family tree back to its head but I'm stuck with a bunch of separate branches that have changed their names and I can't find their original names to trace them back.

The ARR revamp is in a couple of months, so if you start it and find it a slog it might be worth waiting.

It's the Gundam route, not the MGS2 route. The plot of ZoE is a shameless ripoff of the start of the original Gundam and the kid showing up in ZoE2 as a jaded adult is just like Amuro showing up in Zeta Gundam
