For Rufus, Cid[s], and Steiner to be so low and Tidus to be so high...and for Versus' Noctis to even be there at all, proves Japanese tastes as not to be taken terribly serious.  Biggest surprise is Vivi ranking so low, I thought Japanese peeps had a thing for mascot-like characters... he's almost half of one.

Yep, looks about right.

Drunk driver hit us, everything is covered.

How good that must have felt.

And Bytor, sorry I didn't get back to you.
One part: I've had a flu and didn't feel like doing sh** (er, bad sounding, but I hnestly felt like dog crap, most posts from phone the last few).
One part: I was pressuring one who wanted one of the things you asked to commit or let me give it to someone else
And one part: I missed the PM.  I'll send you pics soon if still intersted.

I want DLC of topless Joel "costume" (if it can be called that). 
Would a game like this be 2p co-op though???  Wouldn't mind a buddy to go through it with (kinda works for it?).

If it's for PC, I'd bet on it keeping the 18+ stuff. Very few PC VNs do not contain some form of porn. It's sad, really.

What's so sad about sex? :|

It's sad they feel the need to include it when it has no relevance or importance to the story whatsoever. On the rare occasion it does, then I have no issue with it.

Ditto. Seeing creative freedom seriously compromised is lame, and it does cut both ways (forcing sex & violence where it's not intended, not just cutting it out when it's supposed to be there).

Also makes it a bit cleaner to cover and talk about somewhere like here.

Or it makes it... hilarious!
But yeah, I agree.

I know dick about the series, but I respect the new designs as a person with an "eye" for these sort of things.

Lots of people don't like the contemporary look, but quite frankly, the old designs were hardly outfits/hairstyles at all.  Certainly less awkward even if the art style in general is sort of....bland.

...still can't help but wonder how many people really wear turtlenecks these days, but hey, it works here.

I've heard TC is a bit bigger than FC, so comparatively I guess that's something of a break. Zero and Ao, yeah, those I'm most worried about, at least the first three are on PC with this one on PS3 and Vita.

SC is almost twice the length.  Someone on the XSeed forums affectionately posted the amount to give us a visual understanding of it (and important to remember that FC was already pretty text heavy).

Yggdrasil, if I were gay, I'd love you.

...screw it, I can love you and women too.

He doesn't have to be gay for you to love him


I refuse excitement till a possible localization announcement.

Pretty graphics for a developer who doesn't really dabble in the big HD models.

Curious: Yeah, are mobile/web browser games *this* big a deal in Japan??

A Shoryuken Christmas.  Definitely doesn't top Mongoosey's tree topper.

Good ol' Beanie!

This is Francois Brunelle: he takes pictures of people who look-alike, but are completely unrelated!

Expectations vs. Reality.  Also helps I'm a big Bugs Bunny fan. :)

Japanese method to multiplication.... why the fuck aren't we taught this???  You basically count how many times the lines intersect within the "bubbled percentage area".

German exam mistake.  Half a mark off??  Doesn't "hilarity" make up for any marks?!
6626  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: December 11, 2012, 02:18:43 PM
FUN FACT. The uhhh, goblins? I dunno, in Condie Petie are speaking Scots!

Funny enough, that's a Ragtime mouse questions.  They're NOT Godlins, they're DWARFS!!!!  That's so, like, racist. D:

The party questions have not helped me at all.... I'M TORN.

Eiko vs Garnet: A hard one, I always preferred Garnet (Is it weird I've always thought of her as Garnet and not Dagger, even though she is called Dagger for much longer? Though in most of my runthroughs I now call her Garnet. "Don't call me Garnet, my name is Garnet now!"). Eiko has better White Magic and has Holy butttt, summons look cool dammit.

I think I slightly prefer Eiko for the better magic... her summons are a bit weirder though aren't they?  I may bring Eiko because I'm a big wuss who doesn't wanna do item healing... :(

Amarant vs Steiner vs Freya: Steiner. No question.

Yeah, I think I'm starting to see that.  Which makes me sad, because Steiner seems to have less variety than Freya, but she really can't take the hits (though her jumping in the air is great when in a pinch).  Amarant....he feels like a character that shouldn't suck, but he's just not up to snuff.

One flaw with the game I find is making the lead character a thief.  So not only are Zidane's stats better than the lot (the way most game heroes are), but you're usually wasting his precious turns trying to steal shit. 

Anyways, oddly enough, I find Vivi too boring to tag along with the rest of the party...  He's token black...mage. (ok, bad joke).


S/he is handy (I'm levelling up against the grand dragon; Level 5 Death, insta-kill!!!), but I can't say I "get" him/her.  Like the Dag/Gar nuance, I usually just call Quina a girl.  Quina's apetite reminds me of mine: if I smell steak, I chase after it. Mm.  Also wondering if catching 100 frogs is worth my precious life the same way dodging lightning in FFX wasn't.

As for the Mognet sidequest: All you get is a fucking Protect Ring. Get that shit at the auction.

But they're so cute.  D:
But yeah... I'm not feeling it to go search.  I'm just kinda blue that this being my third run and I still haven't really done it.

Just as an aside: I could talk to the people in Conde Petie all day.  It's so fun to read their text out loud.

Final Fantasy IX
Pretty much doing the Chocobo world tour to get items.  Hmm trying to determine:
Eiko vs Garnet?
Amarant vs Steiner vs Freya?
Quina vs???

The moogle side quest is annoying, I'm missing 2 letters and I don't know where the hell where.  I heard the reward kinda sucks though...

You can tell whatever lies you need to tell yourself to get you through the day Clueless. Us lactose-efficient know whats up. ;)

Lets go skip our way to the ice cream shoppe, chocolate shakes on me!

I'm semi-lactose intolerant... but I don't let it stop me when a Sweetcar named Devour ( a strawberry coulis, berry and vanilla ice cream crepe) is sitting in front of me.  That, and the Moo-la-la (some chocolatey mess with Nutella Ice Cream).

I had a dream with Goosey and Yodes.  We fought off wild pigs.  Fuckers are vicious.

The imbalances comes from the fact that the difficult curve isn't smooth, it's all over the place. If you spend five minutes (not literally) doing side stuff, you can utterly break the game. That was my experience with them, anyway.

I'm sorta iffy on the difficulty curve argument.  I can definitely get why a steady difficulty is good to keep a good pace going, and sometimes I do like that when I just wanna glide through a game more leisurely... but I do like the challenge to stir things up.  I like when a game says: "hey, things are getting harder, what are you gonna do about it?".  I like being forced to do more than attack with my best attacks.
