I have some emotional memories from Illusion of Gaia:

Code:
Kara's pet pig sacrifices itself to the starving tribe to save our lives.  That was horrible.  Oddly enough, I was momentarily stunned when the Jackal burned to death in front of me as well, even though he was my enemy.  Burning to death is a scary concept, as are dying pets.

I had almost forgotten about Illusion of Gaia.

Code:
Most of Will's friends died too. That game was actually extremely dark. Like how you have to turn in that slave to the slave trader if you want the red jewel. Or the part where you have to play that russian drinking game and the loser commits suicide.

The first character death I experienced must have been in a SNES RPG. It was probably Lufia II. Lufia II or Terranigma. Terranigma was really depressing at times.

Entire towns were wiped out (the zombie town still gives me the creeps), several important characters die, the whole story behind Crysta...

So naturally, when I saw Aeris die years later, I wasn't that impressed. I was more attached to her battle skills than to her as a character.

So what kind of girl eyecandy do you want to see in a JRPG? Do you want some Inuyasha looking charcter, or those beefcake Cho-Akinies, or a straight up bishe Sephiroth style, or a burning spirit hot-blooded character like Kamina, or are you looking for something else like a harem protagonist or something?

Nothing over the top for me, though I can't exactly speak for everyone (Inu Yasha is extremely popular after all). Guy from Tales of the Abyss was nice to look at and it's always fun when characters have multiple outfits.

for me the most annoying character by far is Sophia fucking -Esteed in star ocean 3. ever since the first time i heard "it looks like i'm improving" i wanted to rip my ears off,and banished her from my party forever.

Sophia was scary. Her eyes were eating her face.

It doesn't, just explaining it. Besides, the game's from Japan, which has some of the most skewed perspectives on things, ever.

Yeah, I know. Even though it's common in Asia, I thought it didn't match with the character they tried to portray.

Her head evolves.

Jin and Ziggy were the only two that looked the same throughout the trilogy.

Well, in Xenosaga Asia is located on a supposedly dead planet that hasn't been seen in centuries :P

And evne if it's the norm in Asia, it doesn't make it any less annoyingly stupid.

About Shion, I could handle the emo thing, it's all the details I had problems with. Like in the beginning of the first game, with the e-mail explaining thingy. She's supposed to be incredibly smart and that device wasn't even worthy of a tutorial.

Isn't that the game designer's fault?

Isn't everything the game designer's fault? Shion's reaction to the tutorial made her look stupid.

Because she's a girl, and girls do stupid diets.

Not all do and I doubt she was supposed to be insecure enough to consider a diet.

Character designer's fault.

Everything can be traced back to the people who actually made the game, that doesn't make it less annoying.

You're playing a JRPG and complaining about it being sexist?

In this case it was so obvious it was stupid. And like I said, if the guys get eyecandy, girls should get eyecandy too.

That, and her whole "OMG CYBORGS HAVE FEELINGS TOO!" mantra made me want to punch baby Jesus.

Which is why she's stupid. There's that one scene in the beginning where KOSMOS kills someone. Shion gets angry at KOSMOS even though she worked on the programming herself.

That's very kind of you, my hands can't thank you enough :)

I'll buy some high quality embroidery floss for your bracelets to make up for it. And I think I'll throw in a small bracelet or two. I've got some neat Zelda ones.
1464  Media / Brush and Quill / Re: Look, I made a Kirby hat! on: July 05, 2009, 04:35:04 AM
Oh, I've knotted worked with splitted embroidery threads, which is pretty insane. I'm surprised I didn't ruin my eyesight. If the design is good enough, I'm willing to try it again. I'll see what I can do with the Tetris Heart.

Example

Edit: Tetris Heart first attempt.

These are managable proportions. I can move the square a bit up to make it look like it has to drop down to complete the heart.

I wanted to make it larger, with more detail, but there is a limit to what my eyes and hands can do.

She's supposed to be incredibly smart and that device wasn't even worthy of a tutorial. And the apple diet she considered. She's already a stick figure with boobs, why the hell would she even consider a diet?! I also hate half of her hairstyles, too childish. And, she looked like a slut in Xenosaga 3. Then again, I thought the Vector uniforms were incredibly sexist. Men get overalls, women get miniskirts. Mankind sure has progressed a lot in 2000 years. If you're going the fanservice route, atleast give the girls something to look at too. Not-really-minors and old cyborgs aren't exactly my cup of tea.

I think I can pull off the Saturn logo. It won't have to many details, but I think it would look cool if I used metallic thread (if I can find any).

For keychains, somewhere around 25x30 is probably best. So the Gurren logo is out. Sprites from old games with 2-3 colours usually work very well.

That reminds me. That girl with the doll annoyed me too, mostly for her mannerisms and way of being all like GLOOMYETTA OH MY WHAT A ZING THAT WAS I BET YOU NEED SOME ICE FOR THAT BURN GLOOOOMMMMMYYYYEEEEETTTTAAAAAA.

I thought she was tolerable compared to most kid characters and it was kinda funny when she tricked Nathalia into believing her crazy stories.

Besides, burns are Jade's territory. It's ironic that the character the other characters describe as annoying is the most entertaining/interesting one from a player's point of view.

If a games' story is serious, I'd rather not have too many/any characters that colourful.

A character doesn't have to be over the top the be an entertaining character. The Tales of the Abyss cast was very entertaining, yet they were some of the most normal characters I've seen in a while.

For the importance the character has; her looks are everything but flattering

Heaven forbid that a female main character not exist solely for the sake of being eye candy ! :T
Most MALE characters are pretty much eye candy for females, too, though, outside of the obvious comic relief/fugly ass characters everyone picks on.

Yep. That's why I'm all for being able to switch field characters. Thank god I didn't have to look at Shion's ass for 30+ hours! Not that Xenosaga had much has much eye candy for girls, but KOSMOS > Shion in any case.

Speaking of Xenosaga, I didn't like Momo at all in the first episode. A twelve year old flashing her panties? NO THANK YOU.

I checked several times between the final mission and the final savepoint, but the damn cheagle never appeared in Sheridan. I do have a save from the second part of the game, but I don't feel like reloading it now that I'm so close to the end. Atleast I'll still be able to do the other sidequests.
