Hmm, yeah.  Definitely prefer the older artwork.  She's barely holding her sword and the flimsy feathers in her helmet look too dainty compared to the ones much more "stuck" in the helmet before. 

PSX artwork struck the balance between warrior and elegance much better, the new art just goes for 'pretty':


I think the only real thing I like about the new art is she grew out those dorky bangs.

Obviously, in the new art, she had a lot more feathers in her helmet but they are all in the process of falling out onto the ground.

And now I'm never going to unsee that dumb swath of hair between her eyes.  I LOATHE that on Azura in Fire Emblem Fates, and now I have to deal with it on Lenneth.  Aye yai yai....

Lol, you'd laugh at this hilarious and yet related article on Kotaku today:

Thanks for the advice. I guess the sad part is that I actually do proofread a lot and I use an editor lol. I'm good at explaining but putting into words properly has always been a problem for me. But thank you for the critic I am glad that I am able to at least get my point across very well. Maybe I need to take a writing class?

Do you use Grammarly? I use it for school and I love it. I don't know what platform you're using to write, yet I know it's 100x better than Microsoft Word's Grammar/Spellcheck.

I am completely at fault here, and I apologize for the unsolicited advice. That's neat about your involvement and I completely respect that you're helping an autistic child with your gift.

Despite my questionable bass-playing skills, some might consider me part of that statistic of "monster musician who retired from music."  I sometimes wish I could just get together with these folks (in real life) and just talk.  Kinda like a support group, only not.  Talk about why we decided to hang up our spurs and call it a night while reminiscing about our adventures.

If you don't play in a band anymore or shows, I'm sure it's still beneficial to the mind to keep playing on your own time. Keep rockin' man!

Song of the moment - Be'lakor - An Ember's Arc from the upcoming album, Vessels. Listen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Izaxvm9dK_k. Nice 8-minute epic track from the Australian melodic death metal band.

Get Over the Stigma That Something's Wrong With You Because You Want More Friends

Related: The Science of Making Friends
http://www.wsj.com/articles/the-science-of-making-friends-1460992572

I keep a low profile here by not discussing personal details for the most part, but after going through marital separation and subsequent divorce, I'm back on the hunt to meet fun people who like doing fun activities like hiking and indoor/outdoor rock climbing. Both articles gave good advice on being open-minded, going to places and seeing regular faces to build stronger [and consistent] friendships. I still like my married buddies, yet find it has become harder to relate to them when they talk about travel with their spouse or foodie restaurants that they frequent. I'm doing my best not to drudge up all the past either. Time to blaze new trails and discover new interests while making new friends to chill with as EmeraldSword 2.0 emerges! ^_^

@Aeolus - Agh, that explains the limited inventory in my castle for Master Seals at the moment.
@Arvis - Yeah, I tried that recently and couldn't find any Master Seals. Perhaps I have to visit specific castles with unlimited seals. Thanks for the tip.
27  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: April 19, 2016, 01:33:50 PM
hopefully I can find some more Master Seals soon.

That's the bane of my gameplay right now. Scouting battle enemies do not provide Master Seals from what I've seen. I think I have at least three of four characters waiting for Master Seals to be promoted to a new class. I'm at Chapter 20 FE: Birthright. Support grinding hasn't been increased support ranking for my pairing couples at the rate I'd like, so I figure I might as well continue with the story, heh.

Kylde and Klutz, I think you both picked up Internet negativity in general.

It's easy to to get pulled in by persuasive negative comments, reviews, headlines when we're bombarded with this information or backlash over social media on any particular issues small and large. The negativity feeds into our mental sorting system as much as we try to block it out and we can feel agitated or negative outlook on life as well. I found a great article: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/escape-drama-bad-news-5-daily-habits/ and am thinking about incorporating some of these filters and techniques to block out the negativity.

On gaming sites, I too, will often turn to RPGfan as a refuge from negative comments on video game stories. I think most of the gamers on this forum are positive for the most part and hyped for games. Often times I can see through negativity and sense the passion in someone else's voice. Sometimes it's not that they're trying to be argumentative, they're just passionate about their point of you. I try to give the other person the benefit of the doubt to challenge my way of thinking to grow as a person - to a point ;).

Anyhow... game on all!
