Alisha, you hit the nail ON THE HEAD. And your comparison to Gundam is spot on. When I watched SeeD, it was one thing that stuck out like a sore thumb: every strong female character devolved into a gooy wimpering mess by the end, as soon as any male character of moderate importance walked into the scene. Xenogears does exactly the same thing, "women can be strong, but only as long as they don't fall in love." No matter how badass they once were, they're all just giddy housewives at heart.

That's actually a really good point you both raise.
Now I'm trying to think of a time when this was handled gracefully...

I'm not sure if it's exactly the same, but I found Lulu in FFX to stay strong all throughout the story (I might have to replay it again to check that though). I hated how gushy she got when she became pregnant, but I'm not going to argue that point (none of FFX's characters transitioned into FFX-2 well).

She also had the tiniest baby in her if she could feel it kick.  Clearly Wakka's super sperm and Lulu's awesome egg have a level 99 baby... or whatever the sphere-grid equivalent of that is.

For Europeans who missed the initial release, it's apparently on the Xbox marketplace... odd announcement.

Meh. I doubt it's a Breath of Fire sequel. There wasn't even any love shown for including a Breath of Fire character in Marvel vs Capcom 3, so! I'm keeping my expectations mighty low. We'll find out on April 13th, at any rate.

I'm surprised they wouldn't "risk" another title on a handheld.  I'm amazed demand is that low.
...well hell, I guess they still haven't made a Chrono sequel...so..

Honestly I think of this more about movies, TV shows, and books, and largely because I discovered them long after they were produced, IE Twin Peaks.

Dice +1 point

You ruin everything

Fact: I have no friends. :(

I'd show myself Duke Nukem Forever and go "Only 20 more years to go trolololol!"

This made me smile.

I think it's typical "I'm in the arts" money.  You're big enough in it and you're rich.

I hate these 100+ day countdowns.

I ignored the monster hunting comment, but this is just bad math.  Shame!

Obviously the D-ratio is 1:1


Argh.  My fault, looked at it too quickly, then jumped here to post it.  Rarely do you see these sites talk in mere hours, usually it is days.  Dicey is one bad bear...

EDIT: in double checking, the definite dragon image is much more cohesive and apparent.  How the fuck could this NOT be BoF related or whatever?

Capcom: Hey guys, two different dragon titles! Hyuck

Deceiving Dice.
I agree with this post.

Consider it wishful thinking.  I was a forum member on the Dragon Tear forum for a while, and I have two art books and all the OSTs. =(
I hate you even more now. Why do you torture me?

I don't know how to heal this...
EXCEPT TO BAN YOU...Bzzzzzz
If you strike me down now, I'll become more powerful than you could ever imagine...

YEAH?  yeah???  YEAH?!?!  BRING IT TUBBY, I have super "moderator" powers, and I will get my hard hittin ghetto boyz to drive-by clap yo ass to Bang-cock!

I was searching for an unboxing video of The Last Story on YouTube just to see how pretty the box art and artbook are, and then this happens.

There was a Japanese one where he ate the game, literally.

Good grief.  I could only hope it gave him courage or whatever....

...or killed him, for being stupid.

They're all extremely different!!

I don't really care for heavy reading (but actually, I'm looking at what people say here about 999 since it seems to be the rage with players), so if I want to play a "game", I'd go with other titles. 

Anyone else consider Duodecim a bit of a gip?  Extra characters, but only from a few titles...mostly Nomura titles =/

Radiant is the only one I played.  It is a great experience; but I think players like it for the same reason they like and excuse Nier.  It's pure Gestalt: there's faults, but they're over-looked by the better parts for a pretty damn good whole (at least, one of the more satisfying recent RPGs).

My bro comes home tonight, I am eager to swipe PSP off him for Trails.

I'd actually have rather answered this with movies,



Nothing I do is good enough for Dice!


WHatevs!!
