I guess it's the same thing that bothers me. It's more so the behavior and attitude than the actual huge animated jugs.

I remember actually thinking Samus ruled as a kid. I was (and still) a huge sci fi nerd growing up. Seeing not only a cool game w/ awesome environments and sci-fi beats but a cool babe bounty hunter was awesome.


I've never thought about what you said about western characters not being strong enough to stand out. I always liked the somewhat put off nature of characters like Morigan.

I hate arguing or such via text or chat.

A good healthy yellfest every 5 months or so is great.

(though I haven't done that yet w/ my current +1. Is it coming?!)

God I remember when we 1st got together and I was helping her move. She locked us out and I was like "no biggie"

Well she got mad and started to shoulder check the door (she's like 5'10 and petite, so i thought that was cute and silly) but I acted the fool and told her not to be stupid.

She stopped and w/ the straightest face said "I'm fucking pissed right now and I don't want to put up with and shit. You insulting me is not going to help so stop being an asshole"

Well I later told her that right there made me love her, giving me the straight dope like that.

I went and calmed down in my truck w/o saying a peep and she sat in the back yard. I got out 5 min later, apologized, and called a lock smith.

Not harm, no foul.

With the links to Ar Tonelico gameplay in the one thread, and some of the talk from this thread, I'd like to have a little fireside chat about this topic.
I'm sure it's been talked about somewhat in the past but people's opinions vary and plus: new posters and shit


I personally don't know that much about Ar Tonelico except from watching some gameplay vids on youtube from the ps2 games ( i actually like some of the sprite-art) and the vids posted in the bringing back rpg thread. But from what I've seen I don't like. I'm not going shit all over something just because I don't like it, but I found that a bit creepy. The juvenile look to the characters, the poses, the disrobing, and the odd looks on their faces adds up for general creepiness IMHO.

Sure, some of the games I've played in my day are pretty sick in their own right with over the top violence and even some sex. But for the most part it's in the interest of advancing story or is a valid gameplay mechanic.

I'm not singling out AT here exactly, but I find myself more unlikely to play a game if it's full of pointless stuff like that. But I'll fully admit feeling warm and tingly on the inside when my female Shepard did the horizontal bop w/ Liara in ME1.

Am I hypocrite?

Where do you draw the line w/ sex and violence? Do you have a limit?

Will this tread sink or swim?

It takes all kinds I guess.


It's not my style, that's for sure.

I hope to hell that they leave the japanese voice acting in and just add subtitles.

I've never played this but FFT is one of the most fun times I've ever had w/ a game.

This game intrigues me because of some of the puzzles and environment interaction. I'll wait for a sale, too much to play as of now.
