Again:

I haven't listened to the podcast, but we've often had arguments over the years on staff about including games that are within RPGFan's area of coverage but not RPGs on "Best RPG"-type lists.

If you see: "The Best RPGs" or "The Essential RPGs", etc. on RPGFan, assume that what we really mean is: "The Best Games that RPGFan covers" or "The Essential RPGs that fall in RPGFan's coverage" unless explicitly stated otherwise. I'm not saying this is either a good or bad approach (well, sometimes I do, but not in public...), but it's usually how things are done.

I like the art. What makes me laugh though are each girl's "like". I mean, "Likes: Thinking"? It's the kind of thing I'd expect to see on a 10 year old's character creation assignment for creative writing or something.

Maybe just in the wrong mood to be playing VI? Haha

I do dislike parties being split up/having to use party members other than my usual team. Maybe that's contributing here! Though IV has a bit of that too.

Really want to finish FFVI, but struggling to stay motivated. I'm currently in the World of Ruin and recovered about half my party, but i'm kinda of... bored, honestly. Tired of the random battles and figuring out where to go - though a walkthrough has solved the latter. I want to see it through, but... eh.

If anyone has a cheat-y/eploit-y way to blaze through the last section of the game, I'm all ears. Playing PSOne Classic version on my Vita.

basically, you thought you'd enjoy clearly dated game mechanics more than you actually do.

No shame in that

Basically. Except I did enjoy FFI and FFIV far more (loved both, actually).

@Aeolus: Thanks for the tips! I just got the Moogle Charm last play session. I might make a save and go attempt Kefka's Tower and see how it pans out.

Interesting point! Perhaps it's the 2D vs 3D?

Either way, I definitely see a difference between these:

I've always defended Pokemon designs in past generations when people have complained about them. Weirdly, I don't like any of what I've seen so far, outside of the starters.

I've never understood the chibi appeal of anything.

Thanks Neal. At least I understand it now!

This seems like a risky design, so it'll be interesting to see how it pans out. I would have guessed Nintendo might have opted for a more 'traditional' and safe system next to re-coup some of their Wii U losses.

The going joke is that the candidate could be a chimpanzee and people would still vote for it if it was aligned to their preferred party.  

Do you have to register/align with a party in the US? I've never been quite sure if I understand that correctly - we don't really have party alignments here. Not formally, anyway.

But voting for a chimpanzee over another candidate, now that sounds like the politics I know! :)

Probably for the same reason that Sega of Europe turned down the opportunity to publish Atlus games in this region:

As someone who is not American, reading about the Democratic and Republican conventions is a really odd experience, almost like it's from another world. Very few people care much about politics or politicians here and our elections are generally about which party is less boring than the other. :P

Thanks everyone! Appreciate the well wishes. :) It's a relief to know that wedding planning stress is almost over. Hooray!

Rather, marriage is a promise you make to your best friend that you'll spend the rest of your life understanding, improving, and accepting, precisely who you both are.

I agree with this. My fiance and I are fully aware there will be rough times and a lot of learning as we start to live together (and probably after that too!) - we've also done a marriage prep course and feel we are as prepared as we can be going in. But we're both fully committed to working through and resolving these issues. I think it's easy to read that and go "Yeah, sure, easy to say now" and maybe you'd be right, but we're both very confident (perhaps because that was what both our parents did too and they're all still happily married). We know that we're not perfect and we know that our relationship is not perfect - we're just human, after all. Over time we will both change, as is natural, anyway. We're both Christians and fully trust that God has brought us together so we can serve him better as a couple than we can as individuals. Maybe that will be a life filled with trials and hardships, or maybe it will never be too tough, but, whatever it is, we're committed to it together.

I would never decry those who chose to live together first though, because I fully see the reasoning behind it. But that was not a choice that we personally ever considered.
