The worst part about Chu Chu.

<Fei> GODDAMN I'D LIKE TO GET ME ON THIS BRIDGE HERE.
<Chu Chu> fucking inert bitches.
<Fei> MARGIE'S GODDAMN STUFFED ANIMAL IS WARM. FUCK. I'M NOT TOUCHING THAT.
<Chu Chu> damn right you ain't
<Fei> BETTER GET TO THAT PLOT POINT OVER YONDER.

Just curious is Chu Chu mandatory in that crucifixtion scene or what?

(Although in any game Kato was involved with, including XG, I think you can safely say he never did anything that bizarre again

Anyway, let's get myself lynched! I really liked the relationship between Laura and Henri in unlimited saga, which, like Chaz and Alys in PS4, was also sort of creepily somewhere between parent/child and romance.

Hasn't Black Sigil gone gold, though? Something still looks really off about it, to me, and if the May 19 deadline is missed I'm going to suspect something is up*.

There are actually a lot of older PC RPGs that are closer to JRPGs in the sense of general gameplay and also a greater emphasis on story. Albion comes to mind.

* Possible ideas:

1. (Hopefully UN)intentionally plagiarized art from some SNES game; need to retool some graphics.
2. Game not actually finished.
3. Game finished, but sucks and needs to be retooled (and will probably still suck. See: Spore).
4. Game sucks, want to release as is anyway, keeping changing release date to avoid giving out review copies or something.

Oh crap I forgot Chu Chu (and her long night of deba-chu-ry in Shevat) existed. Thanks for reminding me you bastard >8/

Actually I found all the dungeons in town. Except they have hidden doors. I have yet to find the *hidden doors* *within* the dungeons.

I found them by watching NPCs. They tend to just randomly wander into them for some reason.

Also did some SGF instead of, uh, cleaning out my dorm because it's not like I'm moving out tomorrow or anything. Even though I totally am. Got some decent thing for Nasukan's Boot slot, so that his wil and str are now +25. Increased Riki's HP a bit. It was lagging (well, I mean, he's still the HPest guy in the party, but...) because I had a hard time getting Shrieker stable.

I also get the impression that a dedicated magic user in SGF, like a dedicated magic user in FF2, is completely a bad idea.

By the way, is int only relevant to *learning* new magic? If so, I'll ditch my lich absorb for something that beefs up Will once I have Shadow and Mystic magic mastered.

Fei's really the only character I didn't like in Xenogears though I explained this to death elsewhere. It's not even Fei himself that I disliked but just how his character was used.

basically you rebel against the capital and ask different villages to join you in order to topple the capital which oppresses them

I'm not sure how that's a spoiler so I'm not putting it in code tags. That's also not Marxism.

Okay, digging Eternal Sun, but I'm sort of... lost. I killed the beastmen at the camp and explored all the in-town dungeons I could find. I get the impression I'm missing something in the town. I heard rumors about a monster in one of the dungeons, but I can't seem to find it.

Is there any RPG to date that has portrayed a convincing love story/relation?

I'm not sure I'd necessarily say REALISTIC, but the thing with Irwin and Matilda in LoM comes to mind. Mostly because its huge focus on the *end* of the romance instead of the *formation* of the romance.

And the boat scene with Fei and Elly was ripped lock stock and barrel from IoG.

Well, the ages of characters in JRPGs always seem to be completely off, so Auron being 30 isn't much more implausible than Balthier being 22 and Zidane 16.

Also the whole
Code:
Auron is dead
thing.

Also seriously Zidane is 16? I was thinking he was maybe 19 or so. Jeez.

edit

In regards to PM's post:

FFIX was maybe the most character driven FF, and FFVIII was mostly a huge Bildungsroman. FFX was also sort of a Bildungsroman, but... with very different focus.

The thing with Yuna/Tidus is that more than anything it was probably a relationship of desperation. Or rather it should've been portrayed that way. It wasn't. Well, a little, but not the the extent it should've been. The sense of desperation the game needed really wasn't there.

Did I mention that you should check out the PC indie RPG scene? Tons of stuff, both freeware and pay. Spirit Engine, Avernum, mighty fucktonne of RPG Maker thangz, Quest for Glory 2 VGA, the endless cyclopean fuckyes of the roguelike genre, Wizardry goddamn 8 bitches.

Also you have Disciples 2 which is this RPG/strategy hybrid that's sort of like heroes of might and magic but sort of not and it's only 10 bucks from target so you should probably try it out.

Sewers and prisons are why I haven't seen the second disk of Xenogears in years. :P

Dude Norturne was disc 1. Norturne was also a sewer *within* a prison. Norturne is also why I can't stand sewer dungeons.

I'm not a big fan of volcano dungeons either. "The floor can kill you!" Jesus christ no thanks. Mind, if it's a matter of lava just being a harmless obstacle you can't cross, whatever, but if it's like OoT where it DOES make you get dead, especially if you couple it with jumping bits? Wharrgarbl.

I have less of a problem with mines in WRPGs because they tend to look like actual mines and also often let you *mine* for valuable loot, so going in them isn't just "Hey endless maze with a minecart segment (or turtle riding)."

Can you turn the voices off in FFX? Honestly, that was part of the laughing scene's problem, I think.

Ahahaha. Jewish scripture. Condemnation of homosexuality. Curse of Ham.

The best part about the Bible is all the excised books, such as the Gospel of Judas which I find really fascinating, and the book of... Natania, I believe, which involves a women with like, cockcroaches all up in her reproductive organ, and is either a real gnostic text or some bizarre fanfic from a sex BBS from the 80s. I don't really know.

Aren't we all, though?
