This is just Scott's way, Jimmy.  Don't take it personally.

I hope the main female in this one is just completely naked (save for just a cape).

Day 1 purchase for me.

LOL Frosty!  You always put a grin on my face in spite of myself. :P

^ I feel you. I also prefer the better-organized format of the boards. It's the perfect venue for weirdo asocial people like me who like their human communication to be limited, less direct, and somewhat more thought out.
It saddens me a bit the boards are so quiet these days, but I have no interest in Discord. I recognize that live chat formats are a natural evolution for people who like to talk to each other online regularly, but I've never liked chat room stuff (to the relief of some here, I'm sure). It's like being on one of those group phone calls where everyone is talking over each other. Bah!
It is what it is. I'll creep until the boards go quiet (which of course, I hope never happens).

I honestly think the biggest reason is that it's just more convenient to use on phones, which I don't care for.  I don't like being constantly connected.  #alsooldandweird

Yes I could definitely see them going that route for a Tales game, Din, and when the heck did I make it into your sig?  I'm honored.

I hope the main female in this one is just completely naked (save for just a cape).  That would be the next logical step forward from Velvet.

I'm a Spears/Polearms guy.  Always have been.  I enjoy their defensive nature and underrated versatility.

That said, who doesn't love lightsabers?

I mean, there's the Hyperion saga by Dan Simmons, @Dincrest , but I guess that's... probably more sci-fi.

Trails of Cold Steel 2

Everything is coming along swimmingly.  I back into my usual Triple Advantage every battle, never get hit, enemy never gets a turn pattern that I enjoy so much.  I just got to the Nord Highlands and my current party is
Spoiler: show
Rean of course, Elliott, Machias, and Claire.  Not even using Fie!  Take that, RPG Fan Common Sense!

and even for "large" monsters and chest monsters (*snickers*) this party is so well equipped that I still win without the enemy getting more than a turn or two.  My last party member I mentioned above has that Craft called "Flawless Leadership" that seems pretty ridiculously great.  My last chest monster started with her doing that move, and then another party member using "Burst Drive", and I got a bunch of turns in a row and obliterated everything.  I didn't even remember Overdrive (a new mechanic I have been enjoying quite a lot).

This may sound boring and easy to some of you, but I enjoy this immensely.  Plus it isn't like I am not trying.  I spend a lot of time on character builds to try and be as dominant as possible, so to see it working is very satisfying.

Yes, Jimmy, it's basically all Discord now.  A lot of people who used to post here regularly don't even check the forums anymore, much less post in them.  But they're very active on the Discord.

random encounters when i'm lost in a dungeon.

Uuuuuuuugh.  Literally the only time I hate random encounters.

How do public libraries even exist?  That would be like buildings where you can go borrow video games for free and return them.  Seems like a fantasy.

Oh dear.  Starting battles with the enemies going first sounds terrible. :(

characters who leave your party. It can't be helped that some characters will have bad availability but I really don't like it when one character will disappear constantly.


Forced solo battles. These are really a mixed bag. Depends how good the character is as well as if you're using them or not. Just like my middle post I like being able to pick and choose my cast.

Party-building is one of the most fun aspects to any RPG, so games that don't have it tend to rank lower in my book.

Congrats on becoming a very, very happy (but still paranoid) MonCapitan 2002!

Would be awfully weird to announce the PS4 version at E3 (which is in the West) only to go "PSYCH!" later.  But I guess it's best not to get too excited if there's even a small possibility of everything being ruined.
