Would that be Velvet in Tales of Berseria?  She was the bustiest of all the ladies in the game.

Velvet, Milla, Sheena, Tear, Grune, Judith etc. There's usually always someone.

Lucky me got a Brinian (is that what we're calling her?) from the first blue orb I spotted and I already love her so, so much, because now I get to pair her up with LA!Eliwood and it'll be sooooooo cute! I'm also looking forward to Tuxedo Marth. He'll be paired up with my B!Caeda I accidently got from some Legendary Banner. She's -atk and utterly useless, but they're going to look super cute together so whatever.

Reading the Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers.  It's a fantastic Sci-Fi novel by someone who is completely in love with Science Fiction and space travel. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who is in to that genre. My only real complaint is that her male ship captain WAY overthinks social interaction and conversation in a manner that is generally very atypical of someone in his position/with his life experiences. But I hear that women have been dealing with those sort of mischaracterizations from male authors forever, so I guess it's a small price to pay for what has so far been a tremendously enjoyable novel.

Well, to balance out your early luck, I dumped all my orbs (~250 of them) into the Bride banner sniping only Blues and came out with a pitybreaker 5* Tailtiu for my troubles. Terrible IVs too, so maybe I'll just save her for when someone wants Blarblade (I actually do want to use one of her eventually, but I've pulled about 8 Tailtius so far but none of them have been +SPD yet). It was nice of the game to give me one blue orb at a time so I had to spend 5 on about 90% of my pulls. Well, big surge of orbs coming from the TT soon so maybe that'll save me.

Softening the blow was getting a few good 3/4* pulls. I got a 3* Athena who I've been waiting for for a while. I got 2 Shigures, one of who is +SPD/-DEF so I dunno if I should keep him around (either way he's top-tier fodder). Finally I got 3 Effies, which puts me at one too many but I'm sure someone will want Wary Fighter soon. Whatever the case that allows me to show off my second shiny border unit.

She still needs DC to be complete, but she's already doing a pretty good job carrying my arena team half the time.

Yeah, topical references definitely tend to date videogames, the same going for TV shows.

As for Working Designs, my big issue with their text localizations were the pop culture references.  They always killed any immersion I had being in a fantasy world and would feel totally dated were I to replay it later on in life.  And I agree that some of their gameplay tweaks were terrible.  Silhouette Mirage would have been a totally fun game had they kept the original Japanese play mechanics and balance as is and not thrown a monkey wrench into its works for the US version, making it an absolute kick in the nuts to play.

I think as Harry grows up, readers both love and hate him because he's believable.  My mom had an unpleasant kneejerk reaction to the aforementioned part in book 5 because irascible Harry reminded her of me when I was in middle school; my middle school years were a thoroughly unpleasant period of time to say the least.  And, for her, that was the point in the series when the wistful fantasy was shattered and things stopped being polite and started getting real. 

I'm still re-reading Hexed: Sisters of Witchdown and am around chapter 14.  I'm impressed that the author is keeping fairly thorough tabs on the consistencies between it, Fall of Cthulhu, and the Hexed comic series.  The only inconsistency throughout all of that is that the protagonist's indelible brand/mark/tattoo is on her left shoulder in some mediums and on her right in others.  But it's something I can more or less handwave away. 

I know some negative reviews talk ill of the protagonist occasionally losing her focus during the story and getting dreamy about what life would be like as a normal teenager, but they don't get it.  The protagonist has had to live an extremely abnormal life beyond the fringes of our reality and continues to live an abnormal life beyond that fringe, so her "anthropologist on Mars" fascination (and occasional consternation) with our mundane is endearing.  It's like how Arthur Weasley is fascinated by the muggle world and the stuff we think nothing of he finds marvelous.

Yeah, ability to die and get a game over after final bosses = one of the worst ideas ever.

There was also an Obvious Beta part of Arc the Lad II where character sprites in a town are invisible after beating the nearby dungeon.

Matrix Software has created games other than those listed, and their quality to me tends to be hit-or-miss, so I can't say I'm excited for their latest title. By the way, I don't think Working Designs' translations are all that great, to be honest. In the original Lunar games and their remakes, for instance, they say "Mel founded Meribia" instead of just "Mel governs Meribia" like he does in the original Japanese version of the titles, which contradicts the spinoff manga that says Meribia is over a century or so old. There's also dialogue like "The world will once again be mine on a delicious half-shell." Sorry, but if movies had dialogue like that, they'd get torn apart by critics. The Lunar 2 remake also had really shitty, unnatural battle dialogue. I also didn't care much for the fact that they left the Japanese voicework in the Arc the Lad games intact, which sounded more like gibberish than actual Japanese.

WD also had the tendency to hack their games to make them generally less playable because nothing screams 'difficulty' than archaic horseshit like limited saves, inflated HP totals/stats, the removal of items (or in Lunar 1's case, the addition of a key item that both takes up one of your extremely limited inventory slots and is tossable for an easy dead man walking scenario).

I can sort of emphasize with Harry since I was fairly troubled as a youth, and while Harry Potter house quizzes mostly put me in Ravenclaw, I'd probably have been right at home in Slytherin since I was delinquent and rebellious at the ages I would have attended Hogwarts.

I also recently finished The Elfstones of Shannara and am (re)watching The Shannara Chronicles on Netflix since I tend to half-watch shows when they originally aid.
