I don't understand why even Square is claiming "Female Cid"

I'm either losing my mind or I swear to God at the end of the demo, she mentions her Dad or Grandpa is named "Cid," which means the usual Cid is still in the game, just not on camera.

Those comments are priceless

I had a crazy dream last night that Age of Ultron opened with the Avengers putting a stop to one of Joker's plots and then calling up Batman to make fun of him for not being able to do his job.

Somehow I think I'm going to be disappointed by the movie now.

Also, yes. In Proud Mode Aqua is wet paper until you get her to about level 6 or 7. Just keep running back to a save point as soon as you're in trouble, and eventually the levels will come.

Really glad you enjoyed Radical Dreamers, 'tis one of my favorite vocal tracks in an RPG.

I'm also curious how you felt about A Distant Promise.

That's my favorite track in the game. The beginning still gives me goosebumps to this day, providing a perfect grand finale victory theme and really cementing the "full circle" connection the game has with CT.

Yeah, I'm working on Chapter 5 as well, it is an absolute beast. Turn in one quest, and three more appear, turn in another, and there's your next tier of Mics to gather materials for.

Also, I'm still mad I didn't realize how short Chapter 4 was and let that one quest you get expire.

Helpful hint to developers: If you're going to askew traditional stat names, at least have SOMEWHERE that explains what they are (I can only assume Song Power is Strength, and Divinity is healing power, but what the hell is Technique?)
Ugh, I'm having that issue as well. I can't tell what gear is better for who because of this off naming convention.

From what I've gathered from some internet searching and a little experimentation of my own:
Song Power - Basic attack power
Stamina - Defensive power (Whether just physical or magical as well, idk)
Knowledge - E. Skill attack power
Divinity - Support Skill power/Maybe magic defense
Technique - Accuracy/Damage Modifier
Vitality - Speed/Wait Time/Turn Order

Also, all weapon power is modified by the stats that particular weapon type increases.

After seeing what happened after she pounced Aria I've come to the decision that Kanadeko's role as boob-pillow is solely because Otoha is the actual fanservice lightning rod here. So if you so happened to be attached to her you're going to be dragged into this ill-omened whirlwind. Combine that with her horribly generic personality and...well...into the bin with you.

She is voiced by one of my all-time favorite VA's who does a really good job with her, regardless of the personality. So there is that.

Kyouka, to my amusement, feels like a 90% clone of Kyouko from Danganronpa. From the mannerisms down to the name itself. She's becoming Kero's second favorite right next to Aria. Which...eh. I'm indifferent to. She's clearly a walking trope like Otoha but not one detrimental to the sanity of everyone within blast radius.

Aria's saving grace, is her sense of humor. At first, I hated her. As I mentioned on the Game Journal thread, she has that typical gothic loli whisper, but done as if she's suffering from a never-ending asthma attack. But then she starts purposely making everyone uncomfortable, staying completely deadpan, and I can't help but smile.

Interesting discovery as well. Those random 'Key Items' you've been picking up are actually world lore snippets for your Datalog section. Skimmed over the few I have and...huh...why aren't we playing THAT game?

Some of them will also spawn a hidden item (the silver boxes) in a dungeon just for having them in your inventory. Revisiting areas is a must in this game!


...I finally found the switch for it though.

I mentioned this also in the Game Journal thread. I looked for that option right away. It was a neat idea, but couldn't have been executed worse. As Ayumi tries to keep up with the action, she only says half of a line before interrupting herself with the next one, only has about two dozen lines total, and drowns out everything else.

And what about your guy friends?  What are they doing to help?  Because any self-respecting guy who has a buddy going through a severe dry spell will pretty much forget about getting himself some and focus his energies on getting his buddy some.  

Ehhh... I wouldn't respect my friends if they tried to get me laid.

No intimacy, no point.

Terra Tower was not at all subtle about beaning me over the head with the whole "natural order" of elements: yellow, red, green blue, black, white.  It was the order of the blob bosses, the way the chimes glowed in that big room, the order in which they glowed before you ascended to the dragon staircase, and Kid saying her whole thing about "what's important is HOW you fight and how you fight can change the ending."  I predict this will be more of a puzzle battle.  Something where the boss has multiple parts, each part corresponds to an element, and I have to hit each part with its corresponding element in the right order before finishing with the Chrono Cross. 

You forgot one: The order in which the Dragon God changes elements.

Maybe you're just jumping in too quick, Yoda. Between the ages of 20-29 I have been in two relationships. One for 3 years and another for 3 months.

And take that as me being part of the conversation, not giving relationship advice. God knows I know nothing of relationships.

Also, sorry for the break-up Goose, and also for however long you had to endure an unbalanced relationship. Those are the worst, it's the reason my three year fling fell on it's face.

Meanwhile, Episode Duscae made me never want to put another thing in my mouth as long as I lived. Never in my life did I think *food* would have an uncanny valley, but there you go.

Italian Beef until you explode would be quite the departure from the mortal coil.
14  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Game that took you the longest time to finish on: April 30, 2015, 02:46:04 PM
Yeah, I can't really go back to a game after taking two months off of it without just starting over. I think the longest I can remember is the first Tales of Xillia because I couldn't be bothered to start it over, so after going back to it eight months later I chose to try and figure out how to play it again from where I left off. So that one took me a little over a year to finish.

Good point about Takt, and thinking back you're absolutely right. In fact, I have to take back what I said about him being rancid. Sure, he's still the token player avatar, but it is good to see him constantly calling out the girls on their shit.
