Looks like a giant stingray to me. 

I feel that if it were made for today's climate, it'd be the same giant head it is in CC....but with a body that fills up the screen too.  As is, it feels like it's honestly just a badass but severed dragon head.

I'm so excited you've come this far; but I was curious for more reaction and thoughts you've had about the Dead Sea and Chronopolis and the big "grand finale" here.  Have you played CC a bunch before?

I'm wondering if NoA will keep that kind of outfitting in, age Lynlee up, or do both like they did for Bravely Default.
Just changing her age I suppose. Changing the clothes might be a bit too troublesome and also unecessary for every other character. And considering that she at least got some chest (please don't arrest me...) I guess they could just pretend that she's a small grown-up with a derpy face.

Heh, at least 13 is that wonderfully awkward age that's hard to pin down.  That age where one day you look like you did for the last five years and then the next where puberty hits you like a brick wall and your Aunt Daisy is like "OH MY GoOooOoD! Look how big you got" in combination with hair and pimples in places you don't want them.

...I really don't puberty at all.  What were we talking about....?  Oh yeah, Lynlee looks weird.  Combination of weird blank-and-dead-but-still-trying-to-be-cute makes her look too much like, ironically, a doll than the mechs themselves.

Credit where it's due, I think anime is just a pretty hard style to adapt into 3d as well.

...

Probably the most/only big disappointing things I've seen from the game so far, go figure it had to be this kinda crap (she's 13, to boot).
Not that I'm really in favour of fighting fire with fire (I honestly don't think men/women are fantasized about their bodies in the same way either), but I hope the male teammates get some similar treatment to balance this out...

I guess they had to take the Nudist Beach uniforms from Kill La Kill along with the composer. Or at least something that looks like a non-comedic (but still ridiculous) version of that.

Funny, I was thinking on how they had to use the child prodigy engineer archetype from Gigantic Formula along with its composer.

Clothing aside though, I'm wondering how the party's composition will look like down the road. I've been getting mixed messages about how the party actually works since it seems more like you'll have your PC, Elma and Lynlee available at all times while other characters come and go based upon your current assignment/mission/point in the story.

I kinda don't mind if they ditched the party affinity.  I liked the Heart-to-Hearts in XB but oh boy they took a damn long time to develop for anyone but Shulk and Reyn (and by the end everyone likes Sharla the least on count of having little time in battle); half the time they were the reason I changed up my party much at all.  As hokey as they were, I wouldn't even mind just key cutscenes like Mass Effect to build up cred with teammates.  But I haven't really been on top of this as much as some people have though, is there any sort of party affinity things in XBX or any sort of party interactions??

I think we've talked about it here a few times where those "meaningless party conversations" can sometimes be just as meaningful as the game having a strong storyline.  Funny how invested we get in fictional characters sometimes, ain't it?

In their defense.................nope....I got nothing.

Please don't tell twitter! This industry has had enough outrages for this century already.

Although was someone looking for a kid genius?  <----------

It may be annoying outrages but I think gaming and other media will be better if we do talk about it.  It's all well and good to say it doesn't really matter that much, and I can totally see why they'd say that, but to those under or poorly represented, it can actually change the game experience quite a bit

Twitter fighting is just funny (ie; ridiculous) and tumblr is filled with insanely mind-boggling and hypersensitive peoples.

And Lucca is fucking baller.  The CT cast in general is one big loveable motley crew.  I played that game just a few years ago and still get a bit wow'd how wonderful it is.

Man, I can't stop watching these streams and I gotta get that OST.  It's gonna fill my room on many drawing nights.

I personally don't mind it THAT much, since I am not forced to dress her like that and I already dislike that character anyway (13year old, a genius and fighting monsters with the grown-ups...), but I can definitely see why it could creep people out. I'm not a big fan of those silly fanservice outfits in general, to be honest. The same goes for the... school uniform (I think?) that was shown in one trailer. Imo it's pretty out of place and unnecessary in a scenario like this that wants to be taken seriously. But as long as it's optional...
And I am pretty sure that both genders will get their fair share of silly outfits. I'd expect some bare midriffs and open shirts.

Actually her hair kinda bothers me most haha.  But yeah, I'm kinda hard-pressed to think what other kid genius I like, I think the only one I've ever loved is Dexter. :P


And yeah, since most streamers are playing with/as girls it's hard to find, but man-service is indeed in the game (I still really don't like underdressing underaged kids though, that's just nasty):

Still really shit news.  Hope they can work something out.  PT really floored a lot of people, it'd be awful to disappoint fans of the playable-demo that had such an impressive following (well deserved too).

....well, I mean, this is sorta like MML3 over again.

I got to the top of Terra Tower (the room with the blue blob looked really cool, as did the staircase with all the dragon heads adorning it) but Dragon God defeated me. 

Honestly the funniest-fiercest looking boss ever.

Streamers are a-go.

Music is wonderful, the world is fantastic, and hopefully I'll stop myself from watching....  Me yelling demands at my computer screen does nothing to bring the game overseas faster.  :(

Also...

Oh my gooooood.....

Xenoblade: High Entia CHILDREN are 40 years old... even with an expanded lifespan, I can't think of taking care of an infant for over 10 years let alone what follows with childhood...

The wait for this game will actually sting a little.... I'm worried I won't be able to resist looking at YouTube LPs and ruing everything....RESIST DIIICE.

Why is this so appropriate?  oh man I loved it

And LOL at the news story subheading of Fidel Camus being a Cuban dictator and a French literary genius. 

I saw that and died as well. xD

But man, we need to know a worst male group.  There are so many doozies I'm sure it'd be just as encompassing as the best ones.

...what if Star Ocean 5 releases two versions like they did for NieR and give us a a bulky, bearded, Cuban-cigar smoking Fidel....?

Given the state of the localized terminology and the lack of a concrete release date, I suspect 7-8 months from now during the Holiday shopping season.


Good lord I hope not.  Nintendo's usually pretty good about releasing games in a decent amount of time between here and Japan and, iiirc, they reported the translation was being worked on even back in January.   I'd hope August, but it'd be dreadful to see a Holiday release... and, I mean, does the WiiU really wanna compete against that?

Skells - Formerly Dolls (Oh god why!)

Release Date - Still set for sometime later this year.

I like Skells!  "Dolls" comes up at least five times per anime decade as some be-all fiction device.  Makes a bit of sense if it's supposed to be based off "exoskeletons", at least just as much as dolls.

I'm pretty sure most people tuned into that just to hear a potential release date or even time frame.... Guess E3 is the next opportunity for that instead though... =/

AMAZING Treehouse demo though and I actually like the names of the provinces (being part pun, part fantasy, part fancy, part stereotype) and it was great to see in-gameplay.  Besides the fantastic setting Xenoblade 1 had (hard to top two titans mid-fight), gameplay-wise this game already looks better than the first title.

^ Good point.  It's mostly been extensive gameplay looks, so nice to finally get some meaty story bits through

http://www.twitch.tv/nintendo
Starting SOON!

Cappel, or whatever his name was in infinite undiscovery. He managed to be the most pathetic character ever for literally 70% of the game, and by that point I couldn't play anymore.

That's like the only Stateside tri-Ace game I haven't played.  But I don't doubt he's awful.  That said, I still think the "dinner" thing is funny as hell.

And worst male characters?
You have the choice of receiving that list as a tome, or 500gb filled hard drive. ;)

I giggled x)

Imma let you finish, but Warrior of Light is the most story irrelevant FF character ever.

15  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Star Ocean 5 on: April 23, 2015, 02:28:15 PM
Look, she's 18, I win!

Anyway, I like that design. With the softer colours it doesn't look so overdesigned. It looks like's she got a bit of a Estelle thing (ToV not TitS) going on.

I like Estelle's design, but I admit I don't "get it" (it's truly a most bizarre dress in a relatively safely designed fantasy-medieval world).

And congrats!  Haha tri-Ace taking the older audience angle is to age the heroine up a year. :P

In our "Female Protagonists" feature, the entire ensemble cast of Star Ocean 4 was banished to our hall of shame.    http://www.rpgfan.com/features/Best_Female_RPG_Characters/hall_of_shame.html

That's a great list. I wholeheartedly approve of Celes. I'd always considered her the hero of that game for some reason, a combination of good character development and useful battle mechanics I imagine. Never gave a shit about Terra.

You guys should consider doing a top 10 male characters who aren't generic hero dudes.

Agreed about a dude's version.

But I think FF6 is undeniably about both of them in different capacities if we go by their names indicating anything.  Celes + Tina (Terra) = Celestina (a real name).
