What I really like -- and what I DON'T see a lot of -- are secret events that don't necessarily GIVE you something, but just flesh out the gameworld. Chrono Cross had some, and Shenmue and Metal Saga were built around this. They're neat because they make the game feel like it's going on outside of what you're directly doing -- I think a lot of open-ended RPGs could use these, but few really have them.

Yes! I believe every Tales fan would agree that the skits are what set that series apart in character building.

Later to be adapted into a sitcom?

You know, if some of the J-RPGs that aren't localized started being released digitally untranslated state-side, I know a lot of people who would be happy (Wouldn't affect me either way, unless it meant less RPG's being localized b/c of it)

Me, I just want RPG's to start packaging more stuff in smaller packages. Cut out the dead weight like grinding and pointless NPC dialogue.

I don't know if it's changed, but Yoshi did say a while back that if they ever did implement airship rides akin to FFXI, it wouldn't be for quite a while.

Thanks for the advice, I was certainly intrigued by Yggdra Union, so I'll most definitely go with that one/ Unless someone else changes my mind, haha.

Speaking of deals, I need some RPG advice for Atlus' PSP sale. I recently purchased a .50 avatar on PSN which meant adding $5 in funds. I was originally going to save it to put towards Hatsune Miku. But to be honest with myself, I just decided to get both FFX/X-2 and KH 1.5, I have Rune Factory 4 on reserve, and I still have $45 left to pay for the Xillia CE. So really, I don't have the time or money for a rhythm game right now.

Lo and Behold, along comes Atlus with their PSP sale with a bunch of RPG's for under $4, so I'm asking for some advice on which one to get.

So far I'm thinking either Crimson Gem Saga or Hexyz Force, but I'm also interested in Yggdra Union and Knights in the Nightmare.

Some things I look for in a good RPG are:
1. Incentives to explore and experiment (Collectible and Unlockable junky)
2. A good story (Though it doesn't take much to impress me, if I'm being completely honest)
3. Variety and distractions (Awesome Mini-games FTW!!)

I think Froakie is just as, if not more, adorable as Fenekin. Seriously, I think Fenekin is getting too much love. We already got "cute fire fox" in the form of Vulpix.

Sorry, nothing will ever top the Pokemon that is just a giant nose on the WTF scale.

I thought I recognised you, Klyde.
^Clearly referring to his baking days.

For me, it's more that I really don't find myself skilled at anything I actually want to do. My talents lie in non-fiction writing, math and other logical-minded things, and that's about it. Math I find incredibly tedious and boring and writing, well... I have nothing to write about because I don't really do exotic things or have interesting friends, and I am terrible when it comes to research.

Not trying to unload, just trying to clarify my situation without saying too much.

Tales of Graces F

Just spent most of my 150,000 gald on the shuttle thing's equipment shop. Hoping I don't need any more gald for a while, or that I can dualize something good from local mob drops.

Also, quick note: Love that some of the vintage costumes change the battle/victory music. Mostly because so far all of Graces F's standard battle themes have been pretty shit.

But not Fodra's, right?  I weel cut-choo!!!

Yeah! I hadn't fought anything on Fodra before that post, and you're absolutely right. I quickly fell in love with that battle theme.

Do you know how many emails, questions, and comments he probably gets along the lines of "Why isn't this more like FFXI?" I'd get kind of pissed, too. It's the same reason any MMO designer/developer can't stand WoW.

Squids do have beaks, and if you look carefully, that one is just upside down and walking on two of its tentacles. Still kind of a bizarre design, but I don't think "Squiguin" is what they were going for

I'm planning on going to see Pacific Rim on Friday morning, hopefully.

I've been telling myself I'd make some edits to my resume and start sending it out again, but A) Why bother? I don't know how to sell myself when there aren't any jobs I'd be *excited* to have, and B) I haven't had a real job since I got my degree 6 years ago. Seriously, that just makes me look terrible on paper.

70 years? I assume all the people I grew to care about in any game is going to be dead in 70 years. Most of them are at least in their early 20's after all.
