Hmm, okay. So if you had never played Mass Effect, I would have voted for that no question. Because...well, it's Mass Effect. It may be the messiest of the trilogy, but it's still the starting point for an amazing story and cast of characters that will forever be near and dear to my heart. Having said that, I still wanted to vote for it, because...well, it's Mass Effect. I've actually been hankering to do a series replay myself, but dammit my backlog is just too big.

Anyway, I ended up voting for Trails of Cold Steel since you haven't played that yet. There's a caveat, though: it doesn't have to be right after Cold Steel since that might wear you out a little, but at some point later this year, you need to play Cold Steel II. I love the first Cold Steel, but in true Trails fashion it lays the groundwork for the real meat of the story, which is Cold Steel II (and now III but it'll be a while before we get that one). There are some serious "holy shit, that was the most epic thing to ever epic" moments the likes of which I haven't experienced in a good long while.

Star Ocean IV? Are you just checking to see if anyone here hates you?

I'll say Trails of Cold Steel, since you're still fresh off those hefty TitS...      games.
Unless you feel you need a break from the universe. Then Undertale, because it'd be a bit of a departure.

Played 30 minutes of Suikoden, 15-20 hours of Resonance of Fate, all of Mass Effect 1 (a million years ago), and demos of WoFF and Bravely Default.  All the others I haven't touched.

Question: Have you played any of these games before?

Link to a straw poll:

There are 13 choices.  Whichever game is in the lead after I finish Xillia 2 will be my next game.  Convince me of your selection in the comments!

Unfortunately, I was 7 when it came out and I had to throw a shitfit to even get my parents to buy me a SNES.  Then by the time I was old enough to afford a Sega CD it was already too expensive.

I'm sure my experience is not unique.

^ I still have my OG Sega CD copies of those games. Only SCD games I kept, actually... I regret not keeping Popful Mail. 

I wish the Silver Star Story kept the darker vibes of the Sega CD version. I was disappointed with the increased cuteness, well as the shittier music.

The madmen actually gave us a QR seal. I bet Armads will get some kind of upgrade next time they add more reforges since everyone can run his signature combo now. I've so far avoided promoting any Subakis to 5* so it's nice to have my misering rewarded. Now they just need to add Distant Counter, Steady Breath and Fury seals (the final one just so people can run a Triple-Fury Eldigan who takes 18 damage after battle). It's just that as always, it sucks to have to constantly shift seals around so you can only ever have one guy carrying the QR seal.

Promoting Adult Tiki would certainly go well with the QR seal, but personally I've had a -SPD +DEF one (Personally I think if you have the option you should just dump SPD on her since its unsalvageable anyway) at 4* for a while, and while she does her designated role really well, I've never felt the need to promote her because people just don't run axes that much, mostly one of Hector, Amelia or BIke, and you don't need such a dedicated unit like Tiki to take them out. Her weakness to Nino's brute force and Naga kinda limits her ability as a team Red too. That and her optimum build really wants you to stick Steady Breath on her so she can spam Aether or some other long charge move.

finally found Lunar 1 and 2 complete for a reasonable price!

 I let them go for nothing 10+ years ago and have had an itch to get back into them for the last month.

It's too bad going the Sega CD route is cost prohibitive because I've never played those versions.

And speaking of, the Seals this time are fucking ridiculous. We have Seal Atk (good for tanks like Sheena), Def Ploy (Arvis says "Come to daddy.") and Quick Retort (so many fucking units want this; Camus, Xander, Ryoma, Fjorm, Any Dragon with Lightning Breath+, the list goes on). And considering that a 1.4x multiplier unit is available literally one battle into the t_t, I'm calling this one of the most generous (that said, NYCorrin is rather incredibly underwhelming as a seasonal unit, but whadda expect from a free 5 star).

The day before was a good stark reminder as to why Alcoholics Anonymous is such a balls sucking mode. Nothing like trying to take a serious stab at the mode only to get wrecked on the seventh round because you ran out of items from all of the previous whale hunts (and all I was trying to do was to avoid getting shipped to the 13-Coin/Poprock tier; my serious attempt might have only probably landed me in the 15 or 14 whatevers tier anyways). The entire mode is dog shit and its too bad I can't retake that survey to further convey these renewed feelings of disdain at this situation.

Also kicking around the idea of promoting an Adult Tiki. All of mine are -HP but the choice of whether to go for +Atk, +Def or +Spd weighs heavily on my mind (well, okay, not +Spd/-HP, Tiki's way too slow for that).
