Honestly, I tried not to look at her when I first saw the pictures...but yeah, she is weird looking...

Yeah, they totally went for quantity over quality, and the occasional change of pace tended to be annoying rather than refreshing, IIRC, though I forget why.

EDIT: Goddamnit, now I want to play an SRPG, especially after seeing the trailer for Summon Night 5....now the question is: Do I play Fire Emblem and start Eliwood's path, or do I put in some effort and try out one of the many SRPGs that are sitting in my room untouched, because there's only 5 SRPGs that aren't Super Robot Taisen that I've ever actually touched...

More like Red Ass amirite?!
...I'll show myself the door...


But seriously, I'm kinda interested, and yet like Hathen, I just wanted that cliffhanger resolved, no matter what. Even a not-good game would've been better than being left hanging. The gameplay in the first two Legends games were good, but not great, and I'm not sure if I trust Keiji Inafune and his team to actually refine the elements of those games while still making a game that stands on its own.

That and I think Solatorobo was kind of what I wanted MM Legends to be, anyways, so wake me when news of Solatorobo 2 appears...

At this point I think even Keiji would've screwed the pooch with MML3. He has too much emotional investment in the project, and he comes off as the kind of guy who needs to be reigned in rather than being left to his own devices, much like George Lucas...

Well, speak of the Devil...

No thank you. Total Eclipse was one of the few Mecha anime I outright dropped after a couple episodes, I'd rather not see more of that shlock...

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance - I've been playing this on and off for about a year, and finally decided to get it over with.  I threw the last shreds of my completionist tendencies to the wind, focused on the storyline battles, and pushed through to the third stage of the end boss.

And my party was annihilated by her first attack.

Looks like I'm going to have to level-grind before I can finish this.  So much for skipping the sidequests. Bleagh.


Sadly, both FFTA games are massive grindfests with TA1 being the bigger slog through the bore bog, especially if you want to 100% it.

Yeah, I was having fun until I got to the point where I was mostly grindinging...especially since it's obvious the game was designed with the grinding in mind. Most missions were still pretty damn hard despite doing all the bonus missions and a lot of clan fights...it didn'rt help that you couldn't always bring good equipment because of the ability stuff...

Oh yeah, that was the dumbest PR response I've seen in a long while, and the last one was from Nintendo, too. -_-;

I will say that I kinda feel it's a little too late to include a "female Link", because it's been heavily established that Link is a boy. Not exacly from a story perspective, but from a brand perspective. I think it'd be weird for fans to have to suddenly look at an already-ambiguous character as a female character, especially when you go back to the older games. It'd be at least a little emotionally confusing. I think it'd be better to just increase Zelda's role in the story (as they've been doing since Ocarina of Time) and maybe introduce a secondary protagonist at some point, who could be female. I don't see why Link's always gotta do all the work.

Fray - How to Save a Life

I feel like I posted this one before, but damnit, it still chokes me up every single time I hear it...I don't even know why. It just really very well conveys the idea of trying to convince your friends to stop making bad decisions that only hurt themselves...and I guess sometimes I feel like I'm the one that I'm trying to save...

EDIT: No, I think it's plainly obvious that it's supposed to be a song of regret, and not just any regret: The regret of not being able to help someone you held dear, who is now gone from this world...if only you had said something, if only you tried harder, if only you saw the signs...if only you knew how to save them, maybe you could. But how do you save someone from themself? That's what this song seems to tell me, and that just hits too damn close to home for me...

Certainly one of the better pop songs I've heard. I'm usually pretty picky about those, since they're usually supposed to be about stuff normal people relate to and I don't relate well to normal people. :T

I don't know about you, but outside of Fallout 4, I didn't see any reveals until the Presentation days. Sure, there were rumors, mentions, and such, but I didn't actually get to see much of anything until E3 started. No trailers, no demoes, no actual details from the horses mouth. That's more important to someone like me, who rarely actually reads the news on websites anymore. I prefer to see what the game is actually like. I wasn't hyped for Star Fox Zero until I saw gameplay of it. I didn't care too much about Fallout 4 until I was given extensive details on how the game actually plays.I wasn't hyped for Kingdom Hearts III until they showed actual gameplay of it. And I still don't care about FF7's remake, since I haven't actually seen it yet...even the CGI trailer told me basically nothing...

I guess maybe I can't speak for much of the internet forumites, though. June is the only time I actually pay attention to gaming news. Otherwise I let everyone else do the legwork and give me the links and summaries of anything that might be worth knowing about. It's certainly been working well so far...

Speaking of which, is Mind Zero worth $10?

EDIT: Decided to grab it, alongside Neptunia and Monster Monpiece. Now I just need space to download them...

Yeah, I mean, I hate commercials and don't actually watch E3 anymore (instead I read the news afterwards), but people always watched it as "the big commercial that will tell me what my christamas purchases are going to be". If anything, I think an event where they have to directly compete for your time and attention makes them some of the better advertising situations around.

Anyways, I just want to mention that I've been enjoying the previews lately. Death's Gambit has my full attention, and Legend of Legacy is back on my radar, for example.

Tactics Ogre is simply refusing to end, I've given up on doing any more side content and am just going to dump truck my way to the finish.  I have a legitimate problem with quitting games right before the final dungeon that has extended the better part of 2 decades and my list of games I have ALMOST beaten is probably longer than games I've stuck it all the way through with.

I do that, too, and more than just games. Right now I have two bites of a sandwhich, one cracker with cheese on it, and one chip all on a plate...but I can't eat anymore...yet the lunch must go on...

Thankfully I have a little dog who can help me out here. Now if only he could play games...

How boy Skyblazer is hard! Got lots of variety, but it sure doesn't pull any punches. That appearing-and-re-appearing blocks portion in just the third stage of the first chapter (out of 5, I think) rivaled that of the one in Mega Man 1...
