I tihnk that the story and characters are excellent. Riki can grate on some people, but he and the rest of the Nopons are handled really well, and they actually pull some funny twists on the idea of the cute mascot character. Otherwise, the story is heavily influenced by the same gnostic philosophies and concepts that drove Xenogears and Xenosaga, but in a setting divorced from those earlier titles.

Is Xenoblade connected to gears and saga? They obviously start with Xeno, but I wasn't sure. Should I play those as well? I hear Xenogears is something of a classic.

Xenogears is great. The whole Xenosaga I think is crap though.

It's not news because that's the games media for you. To busy pushing other agendas plus they're all buddy buddy with indies. Can't have that now can we? Sad part is it isn't even new. This was found out about a few weeks ago.

So Square has added Japanese voices as fans have requested it heavily. Glad to see them deliver on that front.

Assassin's Creed so it could actually be about...ya know...assassinating dudes again? First game was great and then it just went down the action game hole the rest of the way through.

I also hope this doesn't become a new trend that everyone uses. I don't want to be sick of it.

I got my question read on the Grantland wrestling podcast, Cheap Heat. Starts at 1:00:40 here

I'm so sorry. I wonder how many times you were called a "pecker head" or some other stupid thing, by Rosenberg.

It's too bad you only hear about the the so called awful people on the GG side, when there are plenty more on the games media side, but that's how they do things. Personally I'm glad to see them taken to task. I don't particularly like being labeled as all sorts of awful things just for being a "gamer" but whatever I guess that's a-okay. Games journalism has always been a hot fucking mess. It's funny watching them squirm because they've never dealt with this kind of push back before and it's already caused some changes and will continue to make more.

Here's some info:

- The battle system in FFXV is Active Cross Battle (AXB)

- Timing, positioning and direction is key in battle

- Key inputs are: An attack button, a defend button, a skill button, a magic button, a jump button and a warp button (so much for one button battle)

- Holding defend button to evade drains MP, you cannot do it for as long as you want and must choose wisely when to use it. Some attacks will require more advanced evasion by timing a button press just right

- Attack button is used for basic combos. The different weapons used in these combos are based on a gambit-like system the player can deck out where a certain weapon is used depending on a certain condition, the condition being determined by the player

- Skill button is used to do special attacks with the main weapon you choose to equip, the effects of these special attacks changing depending on the type of weapon chosen. Timing and position is key to these advanced attacks

- The sword barrier seen in reveal footage is still in and can be used defensively as well as offensively (projectiles)

- You can do short warps in the battlefield to cover more ground in attacks and combos, you can also parry attacks

- There will be lots of tactical aspects in battle for core games, like elemental weaknesses and so on

- You can join your party members for special dual / triple tech attack combos. These are not one-offs and can be executed continuously so long as you parry the attack

- Because of the unique gameplay aspects of warping and the many summonable weapons that will be used throughout in battle and field play, Noctis is the only playable character, but his unique combat style and how the party interacts with him in battles is what drives the entire battle system

- Other party members can be controlled via gambits, will level up and can be deckout out at will

Sounds good to me.

Random though...I want a Vinny and Dan Quick Look. That would be...something.

Alright so I ended up doing another build on Cyberpower. I took one of their pre-existing ones that they are having a sale on and swapped some things.

ASRock Z97 Pro4 ATX w/ Intel GbLAN, 2 PCIe x16, 2 PCIe x1, 2 PCI, 1 x M.2, 6x SATA 6Gb/s (All Venom OC Certified)

Intel® Core™ i7-4790 3.60 GHz 8MB LGA1150

16GB (8GBx2) DDR3/1866MHz Dual Channel Memory

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 4GB GDDR5 PCIe 3.0 x16 Video Card (Maxwell)

Corsair CX750 750W 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

500GB Samsung 840 EVO Series SATA-III 6.0Gb/s SSD - 540MB/s Read & 520MB/s Write (Primary Hard Drive)

1TB Western Digital Caviar Blue SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 7200 RPM HDD (Secondary Hard Drive)

Price: $1671 *Free shipping* (Cyberpower)

Bit of a price reduction. Mostly from, I imagine, not going full blown 1TB SSD. Seems solid to me, but what do I know? lol

Just hope it has all the necessary wires and ports. That stuff always worries me...but yeah assuming people think this one is alright I'm definitely gonna pull the trigger.

Don't know if you pulled the trigger already but you could drop to an i5-4690 and get dual GTX 970's? If I copied your build right that would put the price at $1727,-. Gaming wise that would add a whole lot more firepower than the difference between an i5 and i7.

I did already, but I've never been one for using two cards. Thanks for that suggestion though.
