Something about a little girl named Eggnog running around makes me giggle. (til she hit's 12, then you frown and wonder)

Japanese are notorious for this, no?
Bleach's main character is named (I like to put a Pimp-twist to it and say it in a Barry White tone) Strawbeeerry.

Only is you ignore the kanji. And hey, this isn't unique. It happens in RL too. It's always weird seeing myself on the ingredients lists of exotic candy date flavored candy. I happen to like dates :(

Venus and Braves had the leads Blood, Vivid and Ariah.  Xenoblade has Shulk and Florung (say that ten times fast).  And I'm pretty sure our next heavy-hitting JRPG will have a lead idiot named Chair or some sort of appliance.

There's also Kharg. Try pronouning that without sounding like you're going to vomit.

Which Tales game was the one with the villain named Spot? I always imagine him as a cute black and white puppy with a red scarf.

Especially those mangakas (creators, writers, etc) they try to give the character a name that appeals to the idea they have. Another fine example is the main character from Death note, Yagami Light, especially his last name, and they mention it A LOT in the anime. 夜神 the first kanji, means NIGHT and the means GOD. You put them together and you have a badass name or at least a badass meaning for your name.

Also, Yagami = I'm a gay :P

Yeah, in a way he's the James Bond of JRPGs!

Or Golgo. Golgo isn't very talktive either.

Manliness has nothing to do with looks, it's all about the BURNING SOUL inside.


Oh, like Saint Seiya! There's a Saint Seiya RPG IIRC.

Because this thread needs more awesome: Saint Seiya opening song

Rooms? I can post a room. My room is very blue! :D



And there's the whole 1500+ manga thing. It's work-related.

But your kidneys kan only process 0.7-1 liter of water an hour, so you'll die of water intoxication first.

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.
1527  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nintendo reveals new RPG from Hironobu Sakaguchi and Monado becomes Xenoblade on: April 30, 2010, 04:10:45 AM
I just can't get over the fact that the main character's name is Shulk.

Shulk.

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.
