Alright, Infinite Undiscovery Gets Like a B or Something

So by the end the game picked up some steam, the last 10 hours were pretty tight. Just cooler environments, your protagonist finally grew a pair, and there was plenty of innuendo-induced dialogue to keep me happy. Here are some pictures so that we can share the experience together.

Aya, in-game companion looking towards the protagonist in a very starry-eyed manner.

Here's the final boss.

Here he is exploding!

I ate this before the last boss: turkey, lettuce, tomato, mayo, mustard and a balsamic vinegrette that I concocted.

Lunar palace, one of the cooler environments.

Same as above, different view.

Last Remnant is next...maybe after I finish GTA though.

Infinite Undiscovery is Fun, Not Amazing

That on the left is a picture of the chains that bind the moon to the earth that you are supposed to destroy in Infinite Undiscovery. I do not know why you have to destroy them except that they make bad things happen. I also don't really know who put them there or why, and I've played the game for 15 hours. With that said, my main problems with Infinite Undiscovery lie in relatively dull storyline, the lack of a comprehensive enemy that I could find except a very vague evil "Order" of some sort, and some personal issues I have with real-time-combat based RPGs. Also, the voice-acting is so comically bad it actually makes it enjoyable in a strange way. But hell, as I mentioned above, I've played 15 hours in 2 days so it can't be that bad...or I'm just really bored.

The sissy up front with the armor is your dude. Yes, the armor is cool, but it takes 10 hours of running around in another different and ridiculous outfit to get it. Also, notice the little kids because I find them disturbing to look at for some reason.

Seriously though, what's up with Square Enix and completely weak, pussytastic main characters? It pisses me off to watch the guy I just used to totally whup a whole bunch of demons and crap with a huge sword pussyfoot around making any decisions while complaining about how it's too much responsibility. Anyway, the combat is better than FF XII where you could just program in your actions and let your party fend for itself, I didn't touch the controller for the entire boss battle on that one. Which is boring.

That's what the fighting is like, target your guy and then you hit buttons for combos of different attacks or special attacks. You can also link your guy with another character and employ their help which is kinda cool. However, it comes out looking a lot more chaotic than that during most of your gameplay.

However, all those things aside, it actually comes out to a relatively enjoyable game in that the dialogue has funny little sexual asides and stupid jokes, the battles are mostly pretty fun and you can do some cool stuff like make your own items and armor. So I'd give it a C+ or something because it's fun while not being an amazing game overall.

Thanks for pictures IGN...don't sue.

Merry Christmas from BMWBeatz!

Hope you're all having a wonderful Christmas! My library of gameness just got sufficiently boosted, so I should have a few to report on soon enough.
Here's some pics that you can look at while sipping eggnog and roasting chestnuts and all that jazz.

Presents! They're all open now....

Our Christmas tree in all it's lit-up glory.

Lolo inspects some turkey.

Sandwich! Pastrami(as promised), turkey, grape tomatoes, lettuce, mustard, melted swiss and mom's delish dressing.

Another sandwich! Same as above minus the dressing.

Lolo's own personal jungle aka my mom's plant. The benefit of this jungle is that it is entirely edible.

Merry Christmas!

More Delicious Sandwiches and Some Cat Stuff

Here's some more pictures of sandwiches and a couple of Lolo thrown into the mix. Unfortunately, the sandwiches are essentially the same as the last bunch I posted but hey, who knows, maybe there will be some pastrami next time around.

Ham, salami, lettuce, tomato, red onion, mustard and melted Jarlsberg cheese.

Same as above, not yet cut in half.

Different sandwich, mostly same ingredients, minus the red onion. It was still mighty tasty.

Lolo disapproves of the camera-flash.

Open faced sandwiches with dried Italian salami, melted Jarlsberg and tomato.

That's Lolo's turf. She lies down on it to make sure that no one else can claim it as their turf.

Also, I beat Lost Odyssey which was all-in-all an awesome game. It was what Final Fantasy XII should have been, a long, expansive and TURN-BASED RPG. Motherfuckers at Square need to eat crap with their stupid real-time/turn-based crap. Bah. I beat Gears of War 2 as well and that game was mighty awesome as well as mighty depressing. Online play for it has been prettty fun so far. I'm in the process of whuppin' GTA IV which is a tight piece of gaming.
