Based on a FAQ I looked at, I have a lot to do left in this game. How long has the average person taken to finish this game?
It took me about 65 hours or so to finish it (after doing all of the Guild side-quests). I haven't done any of the post game stuff yet, and I probably missed some non-Guild related side-quests too.

I bought mine from Peach Princess awhile back, after reading Dincrest's review. Unfortunately, I don't think it's In Stock there anymore. I think eBay will be your best bet now. :/

I think the LE is worth it, just for the soundtrack alone. Oath in Felghana's is by far my favorite soundtrack in the whole series. While this LE doesn't top 7's, I think the calendar is still pretty nifty. I wonder what they got planned for 1&2 Chronicles.

I ended up getting the game as well. This game is so unbelievably cute. I absolutely adore it. <3

To add to the list, I think Adol Christin is also worth mentioning. That guy just goes to every continent of the world, breaks the hearts of many women (and probably children), destroys every race/culture's evil god, and then leaves. :P

That's because Samus's armor blowing up was really really utilitarian and un-sexualized.
Sorry, but that wasn't the case for me... Heheheh... ;} I mean, *cough*, shit, where was I?

The screen goes white and you can bearly even make out more than a silhouette. It was so anti-fanservice that noone made a stink, and for good reason. Don't even compare that to this, okay? This *IS* viable fanservice.

Mmm, delicious 16-Bit skin. And I didn't mean to compare the levels of fan-service as an example, but the fact of its existence. It was the only example I could think of at the time. Yes, I am well aware that the exposure is only for a few seconds, compared to a prolonged exposure in 3rd Birthday. But viable or not, it's still there, and it certainly looks like it's depicting a 'mostly-naked' and 'mostly-defenseless' body, to me. Sorry, but this shit's all the same to me.

You see prolonged footage of a woman's clothing ravaged and torn over her mostly-naked, mostly-defenseless body. If that isn't sexualization, I don't know what is.
I am not denying this, but the series has always sexualized Aya and Eve in a matter that I have to ask "Why is it a big deal NOW all of a sudden?" Maybe I'm just being apathetic on the matter, 'cause in the end, I honestly don't care as long as the game-play is fun, and the Shimomura music remains awesome.

I think it's also worth mentioning that this kind of fan-service does nothing for me now, but its become so prominent in the series that I don't even see what the big deal is. They would have done it sooner if the PSOne didn't have to rely so heavily on CG scenes to show that kind of thing. Every other aspect of video games evolved with technology, so I don't see why fan-service wouldn't.

LOL, this really is a huge problem for some people isn't it?
I should have just said this. :P

I play as females most of the time myself, because they are beautiful. ;-;

Also, as far as males go, I think Old Snake in MGS4 has a FINE ass.

... I'm not joking. If I had the ass-muscles he had, I would flex them in the mirror all night long.

Yeah, I pretty much agree with what you're saying. You worded it better than I did. :P But speaking of those creepy moments, those Chozo statues certainly did give me those "Oh SHIT!" feelings, my first time playing it. And while Prime 2 wasn't as strong as the first, I can't deny that the atmosphere of Dark Aether did something for me. That place remained creepy every time I went in.
9  Media / General Games / Re: Metroid: Other M on: September 11, 2010, 02:21:01 AM
I am a big ambiance whore myself, but Prime Mover has mentioned what I don't like about it, in Other M. I mean, for survival horror it's fine, since that's what it thrives on, but the kinda of ambiance I look for in Metroid games are a little different, since they have those nice melodies tangled in with it.

Aside from that though, I really dug the whole game. I just finished the game, and unlocked Hard Mode, so I might go through it again right away.
10  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The 3rd Birthday on: September 11, 2010, 02:11:14 AM
Yeah, I brought that up a few pages ago, myself, as well as Eve's delicious mammary in the game itself. Seriously, fan-service in a PE game should probably be the LEAST of your worries. :P

No one gave a shit about Samus' armor blowing up in Super Metroid's game over animation over a decade ago. Now all of a sudden, tearing clothes in this series (which had a lot of fan-service to begin with) is like the end of the world. Good god, some people are babies.

Demi-Fiend? come on
I dunno, despite his looks...
punching Lucifer in the stomach, and doing thousands of damage is actually pretty manly. :P

Anywho, I think Yuri Hyuga (Shadow Hearts), Vashyron (Resonance of Fate), and Meis Triumph (Thousand Arms) qualify as manly. ;}
12  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Valkyria Chronicles II on: September 03, 2010, 12:12:56 PM
Started it up and did a few missions. I'm enjoying it a lot, so far. Any complaints about the game are just trivial nitpicks.

I might just put it off 'til my family's road-trip though. I'm going to need something to do in the van. :P
13  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: About Digital Devil Saga 1 & 2... on: September 02, 2010, 02:43:27 PM
are these 2 games worth getting?



Those were my exact sentiments, when I read the first post. :P
14  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Valkyria Chronicles 3 imminent? on: September 01, 2010, 04:13:34 PM
I don't care what platform it's on. It isn't going to change the fact that I will own it, whenever it's released. :P
15  Media / General Games / Re: Metroid: Other M on: September 01, 2010, 04:09:21 PM
I enjoy the game a lot, so far. I'm not expecting anything the 2D Metroids delivered, in terms of exploration, but I really like the atmosphere of the game, and the game-play is what I expected out of Team Ninja. It's pretty much met every expectation I had. Fun times.
