She probably swang both ways.

No problem with Argilla. Sera's sort of annoying though.

CC spoilers.

Code:
Kid is a clone of Schala. Kid is not actually Schala, though. Do not conflate !!

And what's wrong with having a rude, unflattering, and awkward-looking heroine?

The dungeon designs were the only thing I wasn't that keen on about P1, and honestly, since they didn't bother changing them up in the remake, I can't imagine Snow Queen being particularly pleasant to go through, especially since P1 PSP is going back to the Japanese encounter rates.

Also from my understanding, Snow Queen's story delves* into the lives of a bunch of side-characters, whereas the Sebec storyline addresses why the town just turned into a jack-in-the-box house of dongs and hallways.

* why did i just use this word oh god

Sword of Mana was pretty much worse than the original in every way. Seriously. Can you honestly point out one plot point it DIDN'T fuck up?

Actually I think I conflated M, Screamers, and Gargoyles and came up with that.

If you know what I'm talking about then you probably need to stop watching so much TV.

Still in the POwer PLant in DDS2. My hands are getting really cold. Nobody has any Dyne level spells yet.

Also I got up to the part in Harvest Moon: Back to Nature where you can grow pineapples. This is what I have so far: http://img35.imageshack.us/img35/6168/dscf2805c.jpg . Still no luck hatching a gold chocobo from a tomato, though.

You guys are missing the real problem with the laughing scene.

That being, Khimari trying to smile.

If you're serious, I could dig up a few good Qbasic tutorials for you. Basically, the only people still using Qbasic are people writing games, so a lot of the tutorials are written with game making in mind.

Since I have no idea if I can get into a Masters program that has nothing to do with my current degree program (Comp Sci and russian) for the love of god please do :x

Fun idea: What if P4 didn't actually have a single murderer, but rather all of the murder victims after the first few were just people that other people THOUGHT were the murderers and summarily lynched? And so it's then about people becoming paranoid and violent. You could've done a lot with that theme I think.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers type awkward.

My favorite awkward moment in an MMPR series was in SPD when the bad guys had that doughy-but-cute android girl hooked into some weird machine and they were using it to summon a bladed hellbeast from beneath the city.

Anyway I think FFX should've handled romance and sexuality like Blue Gender -- something totally mechanical that exists only as a brief respite from the hell surrounding everything.

Also Japan has some social stigma against smiling in public, apparently, so maybe this is just a cultural thing.

Also some random shit from gamefaqs.

Quote
FF7 = Revenge and destroying the past.
FF8 = Love and friendship.
FF9 = Destiny and two people from different worlds unites.
FF10 = Time and space doesn't matter in love, finding purpose and sacrifice.
FF12 = War and ordinary kid of street to becomes the hero.

Way to get the main themes of everything wrong except FF8, MR. KLOTZ. !!

Also, I think the main issue with FFX's story is an over-reliance on symbols. I don't mean symbolism. I mean like, if you start drawing and you draw something that REPRESENTS an arm and sort of LOOKS like an arm and you can tell what's going on, but it's really clearly that you didn't actually draw an arm, FFX did that. With the story.

I mean like, there's no subtlety. The Al-Bhed are creepy, machine-using heathens. The Ronso are trying to sell me shitty knives. The... island... folk... are religious and scared of machines. The Guado... had some sort of plot relevance I forgot. Everyone's the same based on their particular culture, and you can tell what someone's culture is by how they look, so you can SEE how people are going to act, visually, basically.

It's like it creates its own cliches and can't get away from them.

My favorite mystic lord was Lord Lord, who was just an animated pile of dudes wearing king hats. Of course.
