So to my knowledge this is the 1st known 4 slotted Balmung. Yay me~

In other new, I've hopped the bandwagon and went neutral. I must say, the damage with good gear is pretty ridiculous though I miss my cast-time, so I'm debating going skadi over nyar atleast for the time being :s

I'm also on the road to 90, hit 89 last night and 88 the night before so hoping this weekend is my big day. Not like it's some extraordinary accomplishment anymore but it's a personal feat I never thought I'd bother with. Wonder how this'll go.

Persona Rant

So I drafted a very long-winded post on Friday about all the backseat moderators on the Aeria forums and how much I dislike them; then I realized I could sum it up with just that-- I hate backseat moderators.

For those who are unaware, I went Neutral. People seem to obsess over the Law/Chaos doramaz still, so between wanting to not be a part of that anymore, and wanting to abuse a new crystal setup, going Neutral was the best option for me.

In unrelated-to-Imagine-news, I got a PSP for myself as well. So far I've picked up Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles, Patapon, and Persona. I have to say, I'm overall pleased with Persona; I don't see the point in complaining about the music, considering up until this updated remake came out all we had was Persona: Black Mark Edition for the PSX... Anything is better than that.

Mark -->Photobucket<-- Black Mark

It could have been worse...
we could have had Blackface Mark D:

I still think the battle system should have been remade, but maybe some people enjoy feeling like they're really living in 1996 again. I've never had particularly fond feelings for the first Persona title; though I'm rather indifferent towards the Persona series as a whole. In the wide spectrum of RPGs available on the market, I will play any Shin Megami Tensei-spinoff game before I'll pick up any other series (save for another Mother/Earthbound game or Phantasy Star 5 if it ever gets made). Anything made by Square-Enix (save for a few games, like Final Fantasy Tactics, Star Ocean or Valkyrie Profile) is just going to be another cliche' game, and once you've played one N.I.S. tactical RPG you've played the other 5000 they've made. However, I have a love-hate relationship with Persona. It teeters on that fine-line of being a SMT game and not being a SMT game. It has the same demons, same sort of battle system nowadays, and same sort of questionable imagery/subject matter... but it just doesn't feel SMT enough for me. Lately I feel like it's just Teenage Angst: The Video Game. Bring back the SMT games of dystopian, post-apocalyptic worlds with man vs. God conflicts, and a little less of the high school setting of Persona. They're still good games; I'd just rather see the original series pick back up. SMT4 needs to happen; I'm hoping Strange Journey is a step in the right direction.

Precious Time

Oh, sweet december, almost Christmas already. I'm officially playing Megaten for 1 year, and now looking back at everything, it's No, really. God, I've felt really pro using Cu Chulainn, grinded for hours at Zhens on Shinagawa (and got a few surprise rapes on new moon <_<), wasted weekends on noob Sugi Golds... Yeah, that's really weird today with all that sponsor thing, countless exp incenses and such, but it was really fun. Exploring, trying new stuff... I loved that, and I could feel that again 2 days ago with the Lord of the Flies patch. Ok, it wasn't hard, but c'mon, we're level 90+ with complete builds and gameplay experience, it's not meant to be hard.

But anyway, I just wanna thank you all who played Megaten with me this year, I had a really good time, and some LOLmoments that I'll NEVER forget, because if we don't laugh on our 10+ hours Ichi marathons we'll just go insane, right?
And if you didn't saw me these days it's because (not that you should care :x):

1) Fail internet connection is fail. I've DC'd so much that I didn't even bothered to turn on my comp some days.

2) IRL stuff. Relationship + friends + work = loss of weight, so everyone should do that. D:<

3) Grand Fantasia.
Yeah, I've been playing it and it's not perfect, but it's what I need. I can play different stuff without making new friends since I'm happy with the ones that I have on Megaten/Aeria. And even failing on any kind of PvP (3k hp don't help, working on semi-vit build <_<), at least I'm cute ._.

4) PSP. Finally got mine, and so much stuff that I wanna play lol. Just finished Persona, and I have to say, Atlus did a damn great job. Perfect remake, decent translation, complex Persona creation system, new cutscenes, awesome new soundtrack, AND after all still feels like the old game.

(Pro Jinn sprites)

Btw, I've uploaded the OST here, so have fun with Shoji Meguro.

Epic Note - This is how pro my Ichi runs are:Nuff said.

Lord of the Lulz

Yesterday after delayed maintenance we received a content patch, highlights being the "Lord of the Flies" quest. So here is the jist of my experience.

<- Gwarr stretch marks!

<- Very questionable decision making skills.

<- Great disguise.

I haven't had this much fun in a while and when i heard the Smt battle theme playing i nearly crapped my pants.



My lesbian lover has arrived~

After countless months of waiting, she's all mine >:D

I'm now a royce alt....wait what?


First of all, I don't understand half of what he types, second of all, yeah it looks like incense, but no sadly it's called Anti-ice and fire, too bad my inventory wasn't open. Thirdly, just because it takes you 5minutes to not even almost kill with 3 other people and me killing all of you does not me I incense, it just means you're bad at PvP.

In conclusion: Royzuno

New Content Sneak Peek!

So as many of you know, Aeria revealed they'll be unleashing some new content on us this month and in months to come, with Lord of the Flies quest finally coming... YAY LILITH!

Also, they've announced a new zone for us too... I think I may have stumbled upon it on the main Aeria site:


Wait a second... Shinbuyu? Shin-buyu?

What's Wrong With Our Server?

Yet another day in the life of forum-trolling on the US Server... I'm surprised I haven't had an anyeurism yet. I'm sure everyone who reads this blog already knows, but I'm deathbivouac on the forums. I will be playing the voice of reason in this conversation, with Thing 1 and Thing 2 proving that players on our server are incoherent morons, and Mr. Green will be the one defending their statements mindlessly, paving the way for generations of retards yet to come.

SakuNoRyuu » Dec 02, 2009 8:09 am

Mirrorenn » Dec 02, 2009 8:10 am
I'll make sure to be here when that happens. :3
kabliga » Dec 02, 2009 8:10 am
just saying some people dont really care (Translation: Some people play this game for no reason at all)
deathbivouac » Dec 02, 2009 8:10 am
hence... there's gaia online.
kabliga » Dec 02, 2009 8:10 am
kabliga » Dec 02, 2009 8:10 am
and as i said, not the same thing
SakuNoRyuu » Dec 02, 2009 8:10 am
lol there's also GFO which has pretty costume...and stats :3
deathbivouac » Dec 02, 2009 8:11 am
if you don't care about your damage output, then you're here for a social MMO
deathbivouac » Dec 02, 2009 8:11 am
gaia = social MMO...
kabliga » Dec 02, 2009 8:11 am
or you just want to solo your life in the MMO
SakuNoRyuu » Dec 02, 2009 8:11 am
DoMo is one as well ^^ right?
deathbivouac » Dec 02, 2009 8:12 am
solo your life? you lost me <_<
kabliga » Dec 02, 2009 8:12 am
solo your career? i dunno what else to call it
deathbivouac » Dec 02, 2009 8:12 am
if you're saying as in a solo-player, then you should care even more about your DPS
deathbivouac » Dec 02, 2009 8:13 am
i solo'd about 80% of 92-93
kabliga » Dec 02, 2009 8:13 am
you should. but some people are weird
Mirrorenn » Dec 02, 2009 8:13 am
tl;dr: Play how you like. D:<
» Dec 02, 2009 8:13 am
...Mirr, go to bed.
kabliga » Dec 02, 2009 8:13 am
exactly mirror!
deathbivouac » Dec 02, 2009 8:14 am
i understand that, but it makes absolutely zero sense.
Alerym » Dec 02, 2009 8:14 am
And Royce, please don't give Mirror ideas.
kabliga » Dec 02, 2009 8:14 am
and i would agree with you
kabliga » Dec 02, 2009 8:14 am
but when have people ever " made sense"? (Between the lines: Clearly I don't make sense either!)
deathbivouac » Dec 02, 2009 8:15 am
well, i just compare j-server to us-server

And the conversation ended here. I really want this 15 minutes of my life back. Apparently adding a few, oh I don't know, Zhen tarots to your statless gears... it makes them on-par with statted gears? And why someone feels the need to stick up for this part of the populace who don't know their ass from a hole in the ground is beyond me. It's conversations like this that say "It's ok to be retarded," and that makes me a sad sad Royce.

Hit It's Weakpoint For Massive Damage!

I wasn't going to post this, but meh... here's a screen of my first PvP match playing on Rhuki. I'm not even using my PvP build yet...


Fullscreen thumbnail for no-inc proof (Zzz)

Anyway, hard work seems to be paying off. Just need to hit 90 (level 88 atm) and I can switch over to my PvP build. I'm already toying around with ideas for my next character.

As a side note, Vista finally failed me last night. System Shock 2 seems to dislike Windows Vista... and for some reason having a multi-core processor is the game's kryptonite. Fortunately I found a patch that fixed the compatability issue. There's a strange fix for the multi-core problem where you have to direct all the game's resources to one specific core in your processor. Thus, Vista is the only OS I know where I can download a full game in less than 10 minutes and finally get it up and running in about an hour and a half.

If I'm not on Megaten much, that means I'm shitting my soul out in fear playing System Shock 2.
