And to clear any possible confusion, you can still marry Rhajat (as a female MC) and Niles (as a male MC).  So just the one convo has been changed/.

Pee Wee's aged like a champ somehow.  He eats children's souls for their youth.

Stephen Colbert on Sarah Palin's endorsement.  He kills it.

I'm also one of those to whom FFIV was my gateway RPG.  I basically played this on a dare because the video store clerk told me that a middle schooler like I was at the time couldn't appreciate something as "deep and involving" as an RPG.  Needless to say, I proved him dead wrong.

I've played FFIV to death and I enjoyed it a lot.  The mechanics and storytelling are rather quaint by today's standards, but it still holds a place in my heart.  Or maybe that's just Rydia, because Rydia is love.  :P  But then FFIII/VI came out and that still remains my favorite of the series to this day.

Story time:  My brother got into gaming (and then I basically took it on too) and it started with FFIV.  We convinced our [Eastern European] dad to drop the dime on it because we told him one of the characters was a cossack...


The love affair began!  But I remember my brother was largely influenced by the music, I remember him trying to learn the IV overworld theme on his oldschool Casio Keyboard. x)

I liked the review, but definitely feels like a wrong place and wrong time for a game in this series...  I always found the SN series felt....weird.  It didn't jive to well with me even though I totaly admit they're fun (annoying comment, I'm sorry).  Still, a great review that still got me curious despite my wishy-washiness with the series.

The After Years is my most hated FF game though. *shrug*

Why's that?  I think my real issue with it is the phoned-in story that feels by-the-numbers JRPG, but I liked it "in concept".

Also the artwork, this piece makes me emotionally erect:

Polom and Porom also finally look decent as opposed to drunk children.

Yeah I agree there.  Both of you.  Love the music, the characters are a fun bunch, and the story takes you for a ride every so often (Dwarf kingdom is awesome).... but I really have no desire to play it again.

There will be "no expression which might be considered as gay conversion or drugging" in the localized version.

“In the version of the game that ships in the U.S. and Europe, there is no expression which might be considered as gay conversion or drugging that occurs between characters.” a Nintendo representative e-mailed us this morning.


One of the female characters, Soleil, is attracted to women, and often gets flustered and weak in the knees when she's around them. She often fears that she can't be a "strong and cool woman" because of this. Later in the support conversations if you pair her up with the male protagonist, he spikes her drink with a "magic powder" that makes her see women as men and vice-versa to help her "practice" around women. This was done without her knowing, as she fails to recognize the protagonist at the start of the conversation. Once the magic wore off, she found herself attracted to the male protagonist, and ends up proposing to him, saying that she fell in love with the female version of him, but now loves him as a male.
Nintendo did not elaborate on how exactly these scenes would be changed in localized versions

Probably a good thing, the original was just straight-up weird.  At the very least get rid of the "magic potion" stuff.

All Zelda-related amiibos do something (Ganondorf makes you 'bleed hearts' [2x damage]), Zelda gives her "love", Links give arrows).
New dungeon is “Thorough Battle: Trial of the Beast”, and, spoiler, you get a 9999 wallet for beating it (so good for the Magic Armor).
More tid-bits inside.

Ever have that feeling when you're not really sick yet but you feel the symptoms coming and you know it's going to be a doozy...

Turn everything, everything off (alarms, phones, close the drapes, shut the door, turn off your computer, shut down your brain), and get between 10-14 hours of sleep.  You'll catch and curb it.

Famitsu also has an interview with Yasunori Mitsuda, who is in charge of the game’s music, and Sarah Lim, who sings the “Song of Death” sung by the Valkyria.

We now have an NA release date along with deets of the SE. $70 is a bit much for a game that didn't really do what it needed to.

I would have been tempted if we got that cool Agnes figure.

As is, I don't really want the game though.  Still feeling withdrawal from the first game.

I really like Chrono Cross.  It doesn't always make sense and the wrap up is ok... but I do think it's still an excellent follow up to one of the best games.

Din! You should do an editorial on it! :D

In my gaming news: Started Undertale!  I already feel it's a little special.
