For the importance the character has; her looks are everything but flattering

Heaven forbid that a female main character not exist solely for the sake of being eye candy ! :T

A less PC term would be French Indians.

Even less PC: Frindians.

I hated Kid from Chrono Cross simply because of her name. Who the hell comes up with these things?!

The main character in Dhalgren was named The Kid, The Kidd, and Kidd at various points throughout the book. That was like 1974*.

Then again I name RPG characters stuff like Hezekiah (DQ5), Zekariaha (DQ7), and Aloysius (QfG) so what do I know !!

* Despite being based on 1984, Bowie's Diamond Dogs has a LOT of stuff that looks referential to Dhalgren, even though that would've been impossible. Actually Diamond Dogs has more in common with Dhalgren than 1984, which is REALLY weird.

References to stuff like catching ones death in the fog and gardens kind of describes bellona.

"Family badge of sapphire and cracked emerald" sounds like a mix of Denny's cracked light projector and the chains everyone's wearing.

Also the red eyes keep coming up in Dhalgren too.

Not to mention the entirety of Sweet Thing.

I haven't seen other SRPGs meld the two like Bahamut Lagoon did.

Devil Survivor?

Pretty much anyone from any Square game ever, really.

Gau really reminds me of Gasho from Tong Nou for some reason. Cyan kind of annoyed me more. Man can you imagine Cyan being voiced by Scribe Shanky from Musashi in a remake? That'd rock so hard.

Baseball Z. Socks from The Legend of My Dad.

That blue thing from Tales of the Abyss (does that count as playable? You can squeeze it to make fire come out).

Pokey, of course, but he's supposed to be annoying.

Oh and that motherfucking cockshirt Chu Chu from Xenogears and to really rub insult into the injury they have CHUCIFIXION but even worse that goddamn implied Chu Chu orgy in Shevat. Don't wanna be thinking about any goddamn Chu Chu SEX FLUIDS and I mean goddamn what if they were doing that in the Weltall and Fei walks into the hangar and it's covered in Chu Juice and he's like GODDAMN YA'LL BASTARDS and chu chu is just like :3c and then Fei has to choke a bitch but chu chu doesn't even have a goddamn neck to choke so he just punts her off of shevat and Margie is like NO WHAT THE HELL so fei punts her too and bart's like NO WHAT THE HELL so fei punts him to because apparently fei just can't stop killing people like HIS MOM or EVERYONE IN HIS VILLAGE or RANDOM ENEMIES and shit like thta goddamn what an asshole.

Shion, from what I played of Xenosaga before I got bored with it, seemed like she had brain damage or something. What's funny as hell is that she reminds me of Sabrina Skunk from that goddamn Eric Schwartz comic (Furfuck from Columbus, Ohio. Thanks for ruining the only decent city in this hellhole you fat bastard) and it's doubly worse because of the whole Transformers/mecha fetish Sabrina has and Shion TOTALLY wants up in Kosmos' USB ports so it's like jesus christ can you not do this anymore.

Grub from Septerra Core had a goofy voice. I don't know if I'd call him annoying but he's like 20 and he sounds like Doug, from Nickelodeon's Doug. I can imagine walking up to him and then Rodger's cat hisses and claws at Runner and then Runner kills it and Rodger freaks way out and Grub just laughs while stroking his spikey hair.

Fatty McTubbykins from Lunar was sort of annoying but I'll throw him in the boat. With Pokey.

Oh, recently that Paladin you get in BG2 is getting on my nerves though I think it's just the voice set they gave him. Aerie's voice is also annoying :|

You know, I used to be a defender of the art style used in the FF DS remakes, and I still DO like SD/chibi art done in 3D and hugely adore the art in Minstrel Song but good god the art in this game looks bad. Hopefully it's just early, early stuff, but honestly FFIVDS was pastel as hell and washed out to 2x hell 2x. It's like, washed out pastel. Like you got those easter M&Ms and let them bleach in the sun (and the chocolate didn't leak out because it's still early in the year and pretty cold out, for easter).

Red should be red. Not some sort of foggy bright brownish color.

FFVI needs a remake in the sense that it STILL has a lot of stupid bugs and like most FF games is unbalanced completely, although it'd be Square doing the remake so it'd still probably be unbalanced completely. Also those stupid little "hey divide your party up into four groups and have them defended this mountain" bits need to be removed. All two of them.

Ok so I'm at the third town of BtB and aside from the dialog I've had no real trouble. So when does this game get unplayable?

It's just archaic. It's not really BAD. It's... well, it's Golden Sun. With a higher encounter rate, no summon monster things, and uh... a timing based attack thing in the battle system.

According to FAQs I should be able to do the second part of the contaminiation effect sidequest now, but I can't find that stupid cheagle!

I quit playing TotA partially because the sidequests are really easy to break.

One of my uncles died Tuesday, step-father of the former assistant principal of the school I used to go to/my mom teaches at/I janitor at died... sometime in the previous week, and one of the parents that has students going to afforementioned school was killed in a motorcycle.

'Course, I read this post on Monday, which drives this things into eerie levels of prescience which I'd be giving a shit about if the surreality of it all wasn't already through the goddamn roof and my mind is swiss cheese and my memories are gone and I don't know where I am or what I'm doing but this house is not my home.

Everything's a blip and I'm watching them move. GREAT PUSHKIN'S GHOST!

Hm.

Dirty Projectors - Bitte Orca. Picked up after seeing rave reviews practically everywhere. I'm finding it somewhere between boring, shrill, and confusing. And it's kind of amelodic.

They do like to mess with poignant scenes in remade games.

Sword of Mana.

All of it.

And then Wild Arms: ACF is an example of poignant scenes being greatly improved while everything else is fucked to hell.

Does this include the super high encounter rate from the original PSX Persona and lack of savepoints anywhere or are they putting in save anywhere or more augustus trees or what?

Hey goddamn you know what's really fun? I beat Persona 1 on new years eve 2006. Problem is I remember going around and grinding a bit. While sitting on the left side of my dorm. Which was my roommates side. And where I keep my stuff now that I live alone, which didn't happen till 07. My memory is made of goo :3c

Anyway so I found my Devil Children Red/Black/White manuals and figured out how the strength/weakness system worked. Groovy. And it's totally different from how DemiKids does it because THAT has eight elements like in Persona 2 (Aquas and Magna for some reason). Not that I intend on ever playing DemiKids again but I'm OCD as hell.

Also I REALLY appreciate that even the fairly meaningless dialogue prompts in Devil Survivor still cause the NPCs to actually respond to what you picked. THIS IS HOW YOU DAMN DO SILENT PROTAGONISTS.

I know some people with gasmasks fetishes and this would TOTALLY not turn them on.
