"I can't believe you're trying to undress a soldier in his thirties! How could you?!" is something I find myself saying a lot to myself while playing games lately.

No not, really. There's a few missable sidequests, but the game will always warn you before the area they're in is closed off. This happens twice in the game.

As for items, if it's rare or marked as needed for a sidequest, hang on to it. If you need a certain common item, you usually only need a few minutes to aquire it once you've found the right monster.

I would've preferred a mini-sountrack or something.

It's not much of a collectible, but NoE let people download the soundtrack ( no DRM!) for free from their website if they registered their game. Maybe NoA will do something similar?

I heard Cheria scream "WHORE!" at something. I also thought I heard Pascal summon the Lord of Burgers, but that sounded like a Pascal kind of thing to summon.

No, it's not just you. I was glad when it ended, too. Both Asbel AND his dad were total dicks.

I felt really sorry for Hubert. He didn't have an ounce of luck. Like, was it really necessary to show us he peed his pants in that skit? Poor Hubert...

Annie did that.  She only became an Alchemist because she was, literally, dragged from her house and forced into it.  And even then she only became one so she could marry the Prince.  Not because she loved the Prince, but because he was rich and would make her set for life with his money.   She was lazy and did not particularly care about the art until later.

I liked Annie, but she's still one of those young (frail) girls. It's not that I dislike them or anything, but I wouldn't mind something different. Having a young man as a main character again could be fun. Or maybe a woman in her twenties. Someone a bit more mature, like you'd see in the early Atelier games. But I guess that doesn't appeal to the avarage otaku...

It would be nice to see a different type of main character though. Maybe someone older, like an adventurer making a career switch.

Great, some asshole (I bet it was crazy neighbour) threw a mirror at the pavement and now the path to the bicycle sheds and gardens are blocked. Crazy neighbour locked himself up in his house, disabled the doorbell, and blocked every window with curtains and whatever he could find. Yeah, not suspicious at all, asshole. Had to clean everything up myself. Took some pictures before I started though. There is no such thing as too much evidence.

Aside from the mailman, I haven't spoken to a human being in nearly three days. Oops. Going through Sunday's schedule and it looks I need to stop time here and there if I want to get everything done. I think I'm going to be sick on Monday... But I can't, because there's more work to be done. Important lesson learned: having two employers and doing some other stuff on the side isn't always a good idea... Though I do feel sorta important right now and that's kinda cool.

In other news, the final volume of Twin Spica made me cry like a little girl.

Edit: it's getting worse. I'm all right with the schedule. I mean, I can skip lunch, lunch isn't important, but now it looks like I can't even be there on time because some stuff was moved forward at the last moment. I can't be there on time, but people need me to be there. This sucks. I hate, hate, hate being late. I know I can't help it, but it still feels like it's my fault.

I prefer the classic controller, but yeah, it's fully playable with the wiimote + nunchuck. It's always good to have a classic controller around though and this is a good opportunity to get one.

There's a decent chance we scared him off. We are kinda scary, you know?

I just discoverd my first gray hairs...

You mean the huge colour puzzle? That took me nearly an hour to solve! Great puzzle though.

Not much of a choice though. Mostly due to RPG females either being prone to kidnapping (which would get annoying), being prone to triggering some kind of plot based destructive surges of energy (home ownership's a bitch), being prone to dying young (granted this one would too but at least there's a Valkyrie Staff for that (provided anyone could use the damn thing)), being prone to spawning derpy kids (taken care of in this scenario), being prone to be underaged in a rather creepy way (nuff said), being prone to having traumatic pasts (hello massive psychiatric bills), being prone to be useless as hell (especially inside a kitchen, nothing like cooking that's toxic as hell), or some combination of the above.

Good point, but you're forgetting a few:
-half of them appear to have an eating disorder. 'Oh no, I weigh 100 pounds, I'm way too heavy! From now on I'll only eat apples!'
-even the independent ones don't function well in society. Not being able to bathe regularly and dressing themselves properly are common problems. For instance, most seem to be unable to dress appropriatly for something as simple as taking a walk in winter (they'll wear a bikinitop, a miniskirt with half a dozen zippers and snowboots with heels, or something like that)

An oh lord, if you think the AI is bad during the main game, you're going to be screaming at the post-game content.  There were a few times I literally shook my head in disgust when they got themselves killed immediately after being revived.  I mean, there's not much you can do when enemies start hitting for 2,000 damage even on normal mode, but it's still annoying.

I beat those three dragons, that counts at post-game content, right? I guess you could access them earlier (I challenged them before taking on the final boss of the main storyline), but that's a pretty bad idea. Cheria was infuriating. She had one task during those battles and that was saying save and reviving the other two AI-controlled characters. She fail miserably. That fire dragon even forced me to use and elixir because I ran out of life bottles! Stupid Cheria making me change my item hoarding habits...

Haven't tackled the optional dungeon yet and I don't know if I want to.

Holy shit, the Kurt fight o_O

EDIT: hahaha, the after fight is so stupid.

That guy was a really bad Black Jack cosplayer. He didn't even get the scar right!

One of the reasons I dislike Cheria. She has a great selection of spells, but she never gets her priorities right. Cheria also loves to stop casting for no good reason.

Sophie's AI seems to be rather good though. She's good at staying alive despite being so frail. Dodge, dodge, dodge, dodge...

Pascal's moveset doesn't suit her def/HP, but she gets a lot better in the future arc thanks to her magic barrier thing. Hubert's a glass canon, but I like him because of his post-battle quotes. Malik... I dunno. Never paid much attention to him even though he's in my team most of the time. He does some decent damage and his HP prevents him from becoming overly suicidal. My only complaint is that he tends to use his mystic arte too early. Wait until the time is nearly up, damnit!
