Oh, he's like Ben Woldring!

Although a Germany-Netherlands final would be pretty kickass. 

That's what the Dutch are hoping for as well. I guess it's because the older fans are still a bitter about 1974 :)

I sometimes play simple boardgames with my 5-year-old cousin. She doesn't have much patience, but loves to win. If she can't win or a game takes a bit too long, she starts changing the rules, giving herself an advantage. She doesn't like videogames very much, because she can't change the rules to her liking. I guess she'll like this new Fire Emblem when she's a old enough to play it.

Another positive review. Well, not really a review, but close enough.

I just can't get over the fact that the main character's name is Shulk.



Well, it is a Japanese game... It could have been worse, I think. Like Kharg, that's the sound my cat makes when throwing up hairballs. And wasn't the badguy in one of the Tales games named Spot? Nevermind their obsession with giving characters that are quite badass girly names like Ashley.

I don't hate Star Ocean 3 that much but I have to agree, I was so disappointed with it. The combat was good enough, but I remembered I used the same moves from the beggining of the game, and that made an awesome combo; all I had to do was alternate between X and circle to beat anything.
Crappy characters, voice acting, story (don't let me get started), etc. If it weren't for the combat system I certainly wouldn't have finished it.

I liked some of the characters. Well, not exactly, I liked one of them and that was Albel. We had a lot on common. He disliked the rest of the cast, I disliked the rest of the cast and we both look good in skirts.

But to be honest, I had a lot of fun with Star Ocean 3 despite its stupidity. I guess it was the gameplay that kept me going.

Scary things need to be seen or heard, not both at the same time. Show too much and you leave nothing for the imagination and horror is scariest when you let your imagination run wild. The use of sound and visuals should be limited for the same reason. Walking through and empty hallway, only hearing your own footsteps and an occasional sound you can't quite recognise/explain, maybe catch a glimpse of what could be a ghost in the corner of your eye... That's scary.

This weekend I went to the saddest little comics convention in the Netherlands. I doubt there were more than 100 visitors, so there wasn't that much to do. I worked on some amigurumi and we had entertained outselves with posing them.

Blue kitty loves unfinished sheep very much.

Just don't think too much while playing and just enjoy the wonderful world and music. It only becomes a drag if you consciously thing about how lacking the battlesystem is instead of just button bashing your way through it.
1495  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Things you've never seen in an RPG but want to. on: March 29, 2010, 11:42:35 AM
SO3's characters didn't really ever form consistent personalities.

So true. If both Nel and Albel joined you and you're on that space ship, those two are always together in the same room. A small bedroom. Yeah.

Anyway, what I want: big giant dragons. Flying dragons of course. Big giant dragons big enough to carry a whole city on their back. Or maybe more like gigantic airships shaped like dragons. They have to be big enough to house an entire population in any case.

It was inspired by a german comic book, I think the comic was called Moebius.

Moebius is a French comics artist :) The comic you're thinking of is Arzach

And it seems the only thing that set apart what race a character in an anime is would be their skin colour.  Americans and Asians look the exact bloody same in anime (...ironic?).

If the manga takes place in Japan, foreigners from the west usually have larger noses.

I liked being able to kick people. And not just kicking them, actually getting reactions because you're behaving like some agressive idiot. Fun!

I love the Yasogami High School uniform. I'd totally wear it. :P

I have a jacket that's like a feminine version of the one the male students wear. I got it way before Persona 4 was released, though. Actually, that may make my jacket even cooler <3

Anyway, I hate the look of most of the Tales of Legendia characters. Sennel looks like a D. Gray-man reject. Chloe really shouldn't be wearing pants that tight. Jay looks incredibly stupid. Shirley looks okay in the art, but her hair is gigantic in the game. Grune is pretty much the only design I somewhat liked.

What, you mean American males don't have mounds of muscles on their arms and legs and American females aren't all svelte goddesses with perfect proportions?  Mind=blown.

I have to admit bald men in wheelchairs are relatively common, though.
