Now, let's all remember what it takes "to move the world".

A lever and a place to stand?

I've never been a fan of when games have a "breakable weapons" mechanic where after they break they're gone FOREVER.

I also don't like hard inventory limits in games such as Earthbound, Golden Sun, or Demon's Souls (SUPER glad item burden got stripped out of that series immediately!)

Stealing is pretty good in CC. Pretty much every boss has a unique item or something hard to grind as a normal steal.
The elemental armors are great to have if only that.

Fargo is a good replacement for Kid while she's KO or in your case don't like her.

I just did a bit of cleaning in my mangas.
Pretty much opened and read the last volume to see if it brought back good memories.

There's some stuff I wonder why I even got in the first place.
I think the lack of manga of yesteryears made me buy a lot of not really good stuff just because it was what was available.

That or looking back at things you liked decades ago just doesn't feel special since you've moved on and are different now.

EDIT: oh and I've finished the first season of Banner of the Star. It's something. More of a slice of life anime... when your life is on-board a military spaceship.

EDITER: Aldnoah Zero's music is really good. Although, I'm still salty about that complete shit of an ending. I think it's the second worst ending I've ever seen (#1 going to the last Love Live movie).

Star Ocean: First Departure - Just got done with the trial in Van y Ille.  Man, Ilia and Ronyx. These two. You would THINK that people from a hyper advanced civilization 300 years in the future would be more skeptical of superstitions and legends relayed to them by people on a backwater medieval planet (especially after they both previously implied that Earth had out-scienced the need to believe in the existence of God), but unfortunately, that thought would be wrong.   

Good thing too. If Ronyxis was skeptical, he wouldn't have gotten his cool magic tattoos.

^ There's ultimately more money to be made from moving on to the next project, than there is from cleaning up a mess. ...I assume that's most games developers' point of view, anyway.

Which is highly debatable.
Just look at Divinity Original Sin 2 swimming in money because they earned everyone's trust by polishing the first game to a degree rarely seen before.

Isn't that the wrong hand?

Isn't that up to personal preference?

I'm more amused by the fact that the blue breast cup + straps everywhere here isn't that much worse, or better, than her old blue breastplate with its emphasis on the breasts.

Actually, thinking about it, the 'form fitting' breastplate at least makes some kind of sense here.
A forged breast plate could never be crafted that well but given that Valkyries manifest their armor from ether and that it is crafted according to their will, it at least makes more sense than usual here.
Sure, it could deflect arrows straight into her heart... but would that even be lethal for Lenneth/Silmeria/Hrist?

Also, it's weird that every art of Lenneth and any game other than the original VP drops her floating shields.
Why is that? I love that design point.

You were the chosen one!!!

Still, it was handled well.
Now, if you'll excuse me I'll go pout in the corner.

EDIT: Actually, no... the author should have chosen one and stick with it instead of this 'everything goes back to normal - forget anything happened' ending. What is this? The Simpsons? Progress your plot and character!

I was thinking of Boy Toy Nier which was exclusive to the PS3 in Japan, and forgot that we still got the PS3 version of Neir, it was just the Dadass version.

And to further shoot myself in the foot, Drakengard 3 was exclusive to the PS3.

And Deadly Premonition was made for both systems as well (also you should totally play DP, its about as horrific as Twin Peaks or Majora's Mask).

Talk about a swing and a miss... I guess I got nuthin'.

Both? Think again!

Speaking of that mission, I still find that some things make no sense.

Like, when you have to select the assault leader, you have a Special Tasks Group Salarian with field experience and commanding experience but the game is like "nope, he sucks at leading because he's a scientist right now lololol" and everyone dies.

Tali is OK until she busts your nuts in ME2. I lost all respect for her in her daddy issues quest.

I somehow didn't feel much for most of the characters in ME. No waifu material in there for me. Not to say I hated them; they were fine and the game allowed me to kill the one character I really disliked (yay!).
I guess my favorite would be Joker.

As a Canadian, I have to say that the U.S. election system sounds like the most complicated thing ever.
