Got another one: we don't need the upgraded Tales of Vesperia. A big part of the game is the dynamic between Yuri and Flynn and the way they try to accomplish their goals. Yuri works from the shadows while Flynn climbs the ladder as a leader. The final part of the game is basically Yuri and co kicking some final boss ass while Flynn (who practically controls the whole imperial army at that point) keeps things in check on the ground, which is important, because I doubt most people know how to deal with a 'we're all doomed' scenario in an calm and organised manner. Both are playing the role they were made to play. It makes absolutely no sense to have Flynn as a party member. It goes against the story, the characters and plain old logic (you should not send multiple world leaders off to almost certain doom). As for loli pirate girl, I think we reached the loli pirate girl quotum in Tales of Eternia. There is no need for her.

Never heard that before, but whenever I have a three day convention (10-12 hour workdays, lots of standing and walking) I make sure I don't need to wear the same pair of shoes two days in a row. I guess that's kinda similar?

(As for actual footwear: nothing special. Usually just a pair of comfy sneakers, the Quick Typhoon SPs being my favourites)

"Damned women and their ovaries" -Tomara

Can't you just kick people out if they don't do their jobs? For some reason I seem to remember thinking that you were the boss.

Sorta and I kinda have in the past, but this is one of those places were multiple people are in charge, which makes decision making a slow and painfull process. Plus, some people insist on everyone being bestest friends and don't like that I don't like everyone. Pretending to like people is so draining. I prefer saying what I want I want to say, argue with people who do the same, verbally punch eachothers lights out if we have to, come to an agreement and move on. That's the sort of people I like being friends with.

I don't even like being 'the boss'. I'm no leader. I mean, look at me, all the tropes dictate I'm a not-leader. Leaders don't wear glasses, like knitting, fight long-range, nor do they have the personality of a cactus. The tropes are right. I just want to be left alone, write articles and dig up dirt on future employees so I can have them kicked out before they do any damage (did that last week - it was fun!). The only reason I play the stupid role is because no one else is competent enough/willing to, and I suffer from this misplaced sense of responsibility.

And then they expect me to want to go to amusement parks and prove I'm actually a really sweet woman once you get to know me.

I'm seriously starting to hate some of the people I work with. In terms of work ethics they are overshadowed by lazy middle schoolers -- always starting late, ignoring their deadline if they know their's is just a failsafe and the grand deadline is a month away.

I asked someone to do a thing he could do in 15 minutes. It wasn't like he needed any special equipment: just his PC/laptop/tablet/phone and an internet connection. He told me he wouldn't be able to do it anytime soon, for... I'm not sure what his reasons were as he didn't give any. He could have completed the work in the time it took to send me that e-mail. And it's not as if I'm pushing work onto him he has no business doing: he suggested it himself.

And then there are some women who make everything about feelings. Like, they can't work if they don't feel appreciated. Isn't appreciation something that grows gradually as you discover the person you're working with is someone who you can depend on? Then get to work already...

God I could get some videogame-related action figures/figurines and knit tiny sweaters for them*.

I'm half seriously thinking about doing this I need help.

(* I could use that Rand Miller doll I have. HMMMM).

I don't a see a problem. You could be the second most awesome knitter in the world. I'd start with tiny scarves, though.

In conclusion I think I am going to quit gaming and take up knitting or something instead, because I don't understand anything anymore and I am tired.

Why not do both? :D

(Knitting/crocheting can be seriously relaxing, though. I recommend giving it a shot if you're stressed. If it's good enough for Agent 355, it is good enough for all of us!)

I love my Vita, but I'm pretty sure the climate for handhelds wasn't healthy back in 2011 either. I hope third-party developers will continue to support it, because if the Vita manages to hang on as long als de PSP did (10 years!) I'll be more than happy.

The worst part is, I can't tell if it's from the new anxiety med I'm taking, or if it's just because it's autumn and the weather's changing, the sun's not out as long, and there's a strong full moon out this weekend (I seriously think I'm lunar-powered, I'm always energetic the week of the full moon).

I read most people experience something like this because of the wonders of evolution. The body is like, omg, mini sun at night! I can see things! Let's go hunt shit!

^ Happy early b-day. I have a Galaxy S4 mini myself, and while it's kind of a battery hog, it's a nice phone. How is the S3 mini in terms of battery life?
Never heard of phone charms.. probably cuz I'm a dude. I suppose I could see such things attached to a brick Nokia lol. Your best saving grace now is to find a stylish "phone cover", although most seem built to fail eventually. I've rarely had one last for more than 3-5 months myself. Mainly cuz the little tabs that hold the cover to the phone tend to break away/off.

I can a day or so out of it. It'll take some getting used to, as my old LG could last nearly two weeks on one charge.

I love phone charms, they're like cute little key chains you actually get to show off. And since I tend to only get new ones at special occasions, they have some meaning beyond just being cute. Tokens of friendship and stuff.

Did you know that that is the EXACT reason why smart phones failed to take off in japan for a good long while?  It took some smart third-party accessory companies making smart phone cases with a hook slot for charms to finally get those gosh-darned adorable Japanese to get on the smart phone bandwagon.

That does not surprise me in the slightest. As I'm a teenage Japanese girl at heart, I will now start looking for such a case.

My birthday is coming up and I got my first ever smart phone! Okay, it's my aunts old Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini. The real present was a basic phone plan. Despite being an adult, this is the kind of present I like. In some way a smart phone does feel like a step backwards, though... Where am I supposed to put my phone charms?! ;_;

I assume we'll atleast get some colour swaps. Red Checkers with blonde hair, now 20% more slutty!

I'm pretty sure SO2's Celine had some magical tats there. Fiore doesn't seem to have any there, but perhaps she bought her outfit with the future in mind.

Fanservice related motives can't be ignored, of course.

Or maybe the designer(s) just freakin' hates cosplayers. All those characters are really hard to cosplay for various reasons. So many layers, materials and techniques... Most of Lilia's dress appears to have been knitted.

She wears a revealing outfit, but itís probably because she wants to show off the advanced magic symbol carved into her leg.

As far as the 'doesn't know how clothes work' reasons go, this one could be a lot worse.

Meh, early PS2 was still very much the 'let's make traditional RPGs/weird shit!' era. It was only around the switch to the next generation that developers simultanously decided to stop making full-blown console RPGs.
