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. 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.
1522  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Super Game Journal Turbo II - The New Challengers on: July 04, 2009, 06:28:42 AM
Still no cheagle. I guess someone ate it for dinner. (Not that I'd blame them.)

- every sweet innocent, pathetic female lead princess (specifically bitches like Estell, that chick from Grandia III, Colette, just to name a few)

I forgot about Colette... When we first played Tales of Symphonia we had played on me controlling Colette ("she has long hair like you, it's perfect!"). Then we found out how annoying she is and that controlling her was slow and awkward. After three battles I switched to Genis and he was my playable character for the rest of the game, only switching to someone else (usually Sheena or Rain) when the game forced him out of the party.

You know, I thought she was easier to tolerate later in the game, when she didn't talk and kicked puppies.

And lastly, technically playable or not, Mieu from Tales of the Abyss.  I like this game, so I wanna play it a lot. And when blue-thing pops in with a migrane-inducing voice and a ten word vocabulary, I wanna hack it out of the game.

If it's the voice that bothers you most, you could always turn off the voice acting.

Luke from Tales of they Abyss at the first half (or 1/3) of the game.

I really wanted to kill that ass for being very very very very very whiny.

You know what they call that kind of face in German? Backpfeifengesicht. The kind of face you just want to punch or slap.

Then he cuts his hair and becomes all cute and likable, inferiority complex aside.

Characters that annoy me:

-Half of the Golden Sun cast, because they talk too much. There are characters that are allowed to talk all the want, because everytime they open their mouth either something very useful or very funny comes out. Then there are characters that talk in such a boring and repetitive way you just want to tape their mouths shut so you can finally continue your quest

-Half of the Tales of Legendia cast, Shirley in particular. The stupid character designs ruined them for me. Shirley is just annoying.

I assume you're referring to
Code:
Getting the Spring Water before chasing after Annie right?


Yes, I think.

I hate it when games do stuff like that. I still haven't found that stupid cheagle. In my last game it also appeared many events later than it should have, but I have no idea what caused it. I guess I'll just have to check the meeting hall after every storyline event...

Ah well, tleast no characters got stuck in a wall or midair. I did see a golem fly around as if he were a bat, though...But even that is not nearly as bad as say, Star Ocean 2. I don't even want to imagine Jade running around upside down in the air while spouting Anise's lines.

Ok so I'm at the third town of BtB and aside from the dialog I've had no real trouble. So when does this game get unplayable?

Beyond the Beyond? IIRC you can seriously mess up your game somewhere near the beginning. Do certain things in the wrong order and you're stuck in the first cave forever. Other than that it's mostly just an annoying game because of the high encounter rate and other crap.

Or maybe that getting stuck thing was just me. I always seem to run into glitches and other mistakes. I ruined a Fable II file, because the NPC I was supposed to talk to started to float in the air, outside of my speaking range. We couldn't get her down. And then there are all the times I got Lara Croft stuck in a wall...

It's hard to believe I've put in over 100 hours into Tales of the Abyss now. I just did the stuff in Daath after the Absorption Gate, but one thing is bothering me. According to FAQs I should be able to do the second part of the contaminiation effect sidequest now, but I can't find that stupid cheagle!
1528  Media / Brush and Quill / Re: Look, I made a Kirby hat! on: July 02, 2009, 12:39:08 PM
That would certainly motivate me. For Grandia III I'd make an Apple and Saturn bracelet, plus something else. I can also make keychains.
1529  Media / Brush and Quill / Re: Look, I made a Kirby hat! on: July 02, 2009, 10:24:52 AM
I bought the PSP version of Riviera a while back, but if you don't have another game I wouldn't say no to Riviera.The old apple logo would be perfect for something like this. The Saturn logo would be a bit trickier, though.

I'll start working on the Apple pattern.

The deadline thing sounds irresponsible to me.

Welcome to the real world. Publishers and readers can be very demanding, so there are cases were we really have to rush to play and review a game. That doesn't mean we always leave those games unfinished, but if you have to play a 30 hour game in three days, you won't get the same experience as someone who is allowed to play the game at his own pace. You could burn-out halfway through and give the game a lower score than it deserves, or you give it an unreasonably high score because your life revolved around that game for half a week.
