I loved Milla's reaction. "I've read about this in a book. It's called puberty. We're supposed to be understanding and supportive."

There's no real need to only use four of the six characters. The games makes it really easy to switch characters in and out during battle and there are some (small) strategical advantages to doing so.

Picross e2 is out?  I love picross.   I've been a fan since the ds games.  I only recently discovered picross e1 was available digitally and am currently playing it.  Normally I don't like the eshop (no account system), but picross is worth it.  It is super relaxing to play before going to bed. 

It has been pout for a while and I think we'll be getting Picross e3 soon. I want Picross e3... I NEED Picross e3!

I've already played through all Picross available on the (3)DS, including stuff like Color Cross and the old Mario's Picross, so I really need something new.

Speaking of Picross, just finished Mario's Super Picross. I have no idea what half of the pictures were supposed to be (the Japanese text isn't helping), but whatever. Whether that thing I just solved is supposed to be a dick or a vacuum cleaner, Picross is Picross, and Picross is fun!

Those Jude comments on skirt chasing seem sort of odd given my experience thus far. I'm guessing it's less he actively chases like Ataru Moroboshi or something and more that he sorta just lets that take control of him subconciously.

He's got a huge crush on Milla, but I'm not even sure he knew that before everyone started pointing it out to him. He's really nice to her, but I doubt he has any ulterior motives. That's just the kind of person he is.

If he weren't the main character, he'd have been friend-zoned before he could blink.

My only real complaint about the game so far is that there isn't a DLC quest to find and ruthlessly murder the asshole that follows you around from town to town yelling and trying to badger you into buying the fresh mutton he's peddling. I would pay at least $40 for that DLC.

Oh yeah, the mutton... There's something weird about that. I saw cows, rappigs and horses, but no sheep. That mutton may not be mutton.

Got a review copy a couple of weeks in advance. Now that the game is out and my job is done, I don't think there's a conflict of interest if I talk about it on some RPG forum in a far corner of the internet :D

And in case you're wondering, it took me 80 hours to finish both sides. That includes 95% of the sidequests and going through the optional dungeon several times, but I did skip some scenes the second time around (only the ones I knew for certain would be identical for both characters). So yeah, it's a bit shorter than 'big' titles like Abyss and Vesperia, but a first playthrough should still take 30-40 hours, depending on the amount of sidequests you do.

Just finished both sides (and even got the platinum trophee - never thought that would happen!) and while I enjoyed it, it wasn't all that great. The world felt small and boring, despite the areas between cities being quite large. I guess it's the sameness that ruined it. I mean, seriously, those Sea Havens are more identical than Subway restaurants.

The whole game felt cheap and rushed compared to other mothership games.

Milla´s story leaves out a big chunk of what happens to the other party members during a certain time. It´s really jarring to hear about it afterwards through a skit, so I would recommend playing Jude´s story first.

As for gameplay, the game lets you control another character as soon as you get one. I played most of Milla´s story as Alvin... so, yeah...

Also, I gotta set this to 'auto'.  Milla keeps running right up to the enemy to cast a spell; MEANING: I don't cast a spell 70% of the time.

She also likes attacking an enemy´s strong point. Using water spells against enemies strong against water? Brilliant, Milla, absolutely brilliant...

But I guess I shouldn´t hold this against her too much, since pretty much all elemental fighters in the series are a fan of stupid tactics.

^Giving Flügel der Freiheit a whole new meaning.

The TLC thing: "Breaking Amish: Brave New World"? Wow, that's kinda really horrible. But on the other hand, I doubt any of the people involved have read the book.

I personally hate the micro-managing.  I got annoyed with it in FFX, it got annoying with it Kingdom Hearts 3D, and it's annoying now.  I find myself waiting at least two level ups before bothering to make a dent in it.

I usually wait until before and after boss fights. Before, because I want to be prepared. After, because I probably went up 2-8 levels thanks to good food and other exp boosting stuff. And unless there's a skill I want early, just press select and let the game take care of it.

I'm surprised we don't see more characters like Elize.

We've seen kids with dolls before (hi, Anise!), but the dynamic between Elize and Teepo is certainly unique. And Teepo can be surprisingly funny. BAZONGAS.

(albeit depressing as fuck)

It gets worse. This game likes seeing its players depressed.

In my case it's a combination of reviewer powers (got my copy like nearly three weeks ago) and not having much work as a freelancer right now.

Anyway, the second half of a new game+ playthrough is fun on unknown! I've got awesome stats (powered up demon weapons, yay!) but so does the enemy. It's not exactly difficult (yet?), but I'm putting every bit of the battlesystem to good use and I'm having fun. I'm also glad I focused on elemental defences instead of just buying the most expensive stuff. Seeing Milla absord a fire Mystic Arte was awesome.

I made Jude wear glasses because I thought his face needed it. He's had them for over 30 hours and now he looks weird when I see him in the anime bits and skits.

The bosses can be pretty tough, but most have an elemental weakness you can exploit. Spamming the right moves makes things a lot easier.
