I have no problem with Sony rejecting a game that has lolis.  Seriously don't have a problem with it.  Would I be outraged if the game was approved?  Probably not.  On the other hand, there is a certain creepy factor over adult gamers lusting after under aged female characters.  The only people who should be lusting after underaged teenage girls are underaged teenage boys and other underaged teenage girls.

More Bravely Second!

I finished up the stuff in Sagitta Village and just finished the two boss battles in the Water Temple. I knew that the Kaiser must have some way to control Agnes though we still don't know how he's doing it. All the crystals are going nuts now, and I'm looking forward to seeing where the story goes from here.

Job wise I currently have Yew back as a Summoner to bring that up to Level 8. After that I'll switch him to Exorcist to at least get that MP Recover skill, and go from there.

Magnolia reached level 7 Hawkeye, and not having any other jobs I currently want her to perform I switched her to Freelancer, and I've just left her like that for a while. She's getting close to level 9 Freelancer thanks to the JP+ skill. I may go ahead and take her all the way to level 10 and then go back to her other jobs.

I got Edea all Red-Maged to Revenge and then swapped her to Valkyrie. Even though it isn't called Dragoon any more, it is still up there as my favorite FF/BD job (Jump has saved my ass more times than I can count in a number of different games). I'm just going to leave her here for now.

I abandoned Astrologian with Tiz because of my recently acquired Exorcist job. It's incredibly useful. Not only does it have the MP Recover skill, but the battle commands are great. I used all that I have currently (Undo HP, Undo Action, and Purgation) in the Water Temple boss battles. And MP Recover made it so that I didn't have to worry about Tiz's MP while healing at all, and I was even able to share my MP with Yew without any problems whatsoever. I'm not deep into the job yet, but I think it's already my favorite of the new jobs available in this game. I'm going to leave Tiz here for now.

That is adorable, Jimmy.

That's what I go for, haha!

For me it'd be DQ11 and Metal Max Xeno. I'd say Octopath too if it wasn't a Switch exclusive.

Censorship alarmists may try to cry foul and use the "slippery slope" argument, but I don't think there is anything to worry about.  Gratuitous sex and violence in video games will always be there.  Games like HuniePop and Grand Theft Auto certainly aren't hurting for sales.  I think the biggest squick issue with Omega Z is/was the "loli" factor.  Sexualizing children is criminally and morally wrong in pretty much every country of the world. No matter how much you retool the script to say the girls are 18+, anyone can plainly see that several Omega Z characters are hyper-sexualized high school girls under the age of consent.  Criminal Girls tried to script it so that all the girls were 18 or older, but one look at the game and you know several of them were kids.  I STILL wonder how in blue blazes both of those games got through the rating boards, because they were 50 million shades of wrong, nope, and WTFisthisIdon'teven...

Summer Leo's only good as a trophy anyway. The one I pulled way back turned out to have a really good IV set even though initially I thought it was bad (-SPD +RES) and he does some work occasionally in Arena Assault, but he was already feeling the heat when Arvis was released shortly thereafter. He still tanked magic ever so slightly better though- then Julius came out and now he's outclassed everywhere pretty much. Still has some of a funniest quotes in the game though.

Anyway, not much to show for on all these free pulls, but I did get a 4* Ares on the one from the Death Blow banner which was nice. Bad IV set so I guess someone will get to have a shiny new Brazen Skill. Still pinching my Orbs successfully, but if we get a Legendary Armor then Hector might have to wait. Hoping the trailer drops tomorrow, it being Green and probably Fire still says FE6 Hector to me (and they might go out of order with the stat and just make him +ATK instead of +RES). Another idea I saw floated was Garon with his Bolverk, and with Grima being Legendary Hero it'd make just about as much sense anyway. They really painted themselves into a corner with this thing, because having some ultimate version of a character not wielding their main weapon just feels weird, and like 90% of the leads in the series have swords as that, including Alm. Hell, sometimes it happens more than once per game like with Alm's Royal Sword. But hey, Edelgard uses both swords and axes so at least they planned ahead this time!

Also in other Fire Emblem addiction news, I cleared PoR and I'm already on Part 3 of RD. I'm really liking how RD is basically FE plot cliche deconstruction hour, although it still occasionally falls into the trap of things like ugly people = evil. I'd like to see some Fire Emblem character someday cackling like a maniac in a cutscene but then it turns out they were just trying to feed the war orphans or some shit (I guess Gonzales fills in half a point though).

RD would also be really, really hard if it weren't for the fact that the game always seems to provide about 4 different Jagens for you to curbstomp everything- and on that note, I didn't use Shinon or Haar in PoR but I'm using both of them in RD, especially Haar. Goddamn this guy is broken. To balance that out I spent a lot of time trying to use Ilyana since she's the first mage you get, and she's all kinds of terrible even if after giving her lots of levels for free. I also dunno if I got stat screwed on her, but Nephenee was a pretty big disappointment too, whether its PoR or RD. Her stats just constantly get stuck in awkward ranges where she can't deal or take a lot of punishment (and Wrath is way too risky to stay in all the time so you can't cheese whole armies with Vantage+Wrath like you can with Arthur/Tine). I tag team her with Brom and he makes up for her though.

As for how that translates back to Heroes, they actually added most of the major players already, but I guess I'd like to see Haar and Brom get in (we need way more generic armors anyway). Both Davdan and Danved are welcome too. I really didn't use any Laguz characters in PoR (aside from Reyson of course, who is ridiculous) because I honestly found them really inconvenient to use, but RD really fixes a lot of the gripes I had with them.

I'm not going to say it's a win, but it's certainly not a loss. I didn't see anything from a gameplay perspective that made it stand out, and there are already better ecchi games on the PS4 and certainly the PC. I'm sure people who were looking forward to it are going to be disappointed, and probably worried as to what kind of precedent this could set...but it could still work out in end. I mean, looking at Omega Labyrinth Z, it really doesn't look like it would've been cost effective for them to release it outside of Japan, and I certainly hope the lessons they learned will help them in the future.

Maybe next time they won't choose a game that isn't risque enough to be porn, but deals with subjects that rating boards really don't approve of? That's long and complicated enough that trying to change content that complies with their demands would require a ton of work, and probably just anger their niche fanbase anyways?

You know, silver lining and all that jazz....

A sad day for The Legendary Zoltan. Lol.

Well my impatience was kinda rewarded with a +Atk/-Def Summer Inn. Not the best of Banes but a Def forge will fix that right up. And he only took 75 Orbs to pull (with most of the rest of my pulls amounting to trash like Saizos and Marias).

Unfortunately, they're also rerunning last year's Summer banners to further bleed me of Orbs. Failed to get anything useful out of either of them even if they got 9 Orbs out of me (I really wanted that Summer Leo).

Apparently this GCN will be Valentia themed, but really, that generally means nothing at this point (unless they include a free 3 star Tobin or finally bring in the Kliff). It also might mean that the next Legendary is Fire Alm (although he doesn't fit the Res buff all that well (nor does any other Valentite, lol)).
