Spoilerish DDS question for Gen:

Code:
Angel's a dickgirl, right?

Also you should hardly need -dyne level spells for that part of the game... On regular mode, in any case.

Anyway, up to Gaia's Navel in Chrono Chross.

Some thought on Kid and Serge -

I don't realy think Serge is the main character. In a sense he IS because he's the driving force behind a lot of the story events, and he's the arbiter of time and all that, but he's almost more of a living plot event or a device of some sort. He's too heavily wrapped up with FATE and he pretty much IS what FATE needs him to be when FATE needs him to be it. Which is what I think that conversation with Harle in the Cleft of Dimension was getting at. Serge is more this nebulous entity that is capable of filling niches as necessary.

Kid, on the other hand, is a much more main-ish character. She has a personal reason for wanting to take on Lynx, and she's the one that learns the most about herself through the course of the story. She's also the one writing the journal that comprises of the events in CC.

The dynamic between the two is even more complicated when you consider Harle. The thing with Kid is that even after the body swap thing, she follows Serge, which indicates a certain... well, "blinded by revengeness" about her as well as her level of devotion to Serge. Harle, likewise, keeps following Lynx, except it's different because Harle, to some degree at least, indicates that she knows that the current Lynx is actually Serge -- although it could also be said that the only reason Harle was hanging around with Lynx in the first place WAS to get closer to Serge.

And that's all I can really say now because I seriously cannot remember what happens after you get the first five dragon relics, and all of the super major Harle and Lynx stuff happens after that.

Seems like it plays like any other MMO, I guess.

DDS2 - Lost to Abiddon for the 10th or so time, after grinding and getting better skills. This boss is too unpredictable and luck based. I'm shelving this game.

---edit---

I just beat Abidon. Goddamn you, game.

---edit2---

Holy motherfucking goddamn.

Gen how the fuck do you kill Abaddon in DDS2. Half the time my spells miss and he wipes my party out in two turns, and the other half of the time the fight goes on forever until I run out of healing items.

Or I could still just keep spamming summons because everything dies in one hit anyway.

I'm bored. I'm gonna see if I still have my save of Ultimecia's castle and then go beat it.

Anise (Tales of the Abyss) was mildly annoying too, since I'm not too fond of the "children acting as an adult" thing.

Which is why I liked Genis more. With Anise (I called her Arietta elsewhere. Whoops aren' I a queen of boners) had some childlike tendencies, they were really overdone because, surprise surprise, that was her acting, and I guess they wanted it apparent that that really WASN'T her real personality (and that in reality she's just sort of a bastard). And so the entire thing just ping-ponged back and forth between overdone and incredibly non-believable.

Genis, on the other hand, acted like a more mature 10 year old -- with valid reasons for it, sort of -- but never really seemed to old, mostly from his nvt, the sort of relationship he had with Mithos (yiffyiffyiff), and his tendencies to spontaneously run off and start playing with things and people and cats and cat people (and then he turned into a furry (yiffyiffyiff)).

Also what the fuck did that little subquest imply that Katz were some sort of race of Grim Reapers?

Well sorry I don't know what words are jesus >:(*

BTW what IS Status Attack-J for? I never did anything with it.

Oh and the other hilarious thing with FF8 -- for some reason, in my game at least, once I got Odin and whatever replaced him, instead of coming out 1 in every 25 battles, he came out EVERY battle.

Also WTF siren got some pubes. I forgot about that. Between that and Rinoa's Angelo Fisting Attack, this is a pretty smutty game.

I have a similar paraphilia and it involves me wanting to make out with Seal or seals.

Fun advice: Get the spyglass item (which has infinite uses) or analyze to learn enemy weaknesses; also give someone quick escape in case you can't hit those weaknesses.

The more I play CC, the more I realize how much stuff I missed the first time around. Going off to do Gaea's Navel now.

Some eatfag in the EGG research facility keeps harshing the fuck out of my grills. How do I beat him?

The religious stuff in NGE is just there cause it looks cool and they guy that made it said as much. It's not pointless symbolism because it's not even symbolism. It's like the demons in SMT games. I'm pretty sure it's the same for XG, because that actually did have a religious subplot that was mostly seperate from the stupid little puppy got run over by the dark raccoon barn

Str-J is Silph I think.
