I think he was talking about Ion. Ion is male, but everything he does and says contradicts this.

Many of those are more annoying than useless. Besides, Mieu is pretty cute as long as you mute the TV whenever he opens his mouth.

I managed to play and finish a few old Fire Emblems without a translation. The only thing you need to recognize are the menus and the names of the characters.

Oh and I played a RPG called Tenshi no Uta in Japanese. It was fairly straightforward, but I had to check a guide a couple of times to find out how to advance the plot.

I usually move on to the next textbox as soon as I finish reading, unless I really like the voice acting. Well, the Suikoden Tierkreis protagonist managed to finish most of his lines, but that wasn't exactly a good thing.

Hey, it looks like that boss from Persona 4 :D

I wonder what the failure rates of the PS2 are, seeing as the DRE thing was a big deal a few years ago. My PAL and NTSC U/C systems both "died" twice from that, but me and m dad fixed it everytime. The official Playstation forum actually banned me for a month for explaining the problem and possible solutions. One year later the members of the same forum voted me "most knowledgable/helpful member" and I got an nice PS2 bag filled with awesome goodies <3

Our Xbox 360 is still going strong, but that may be because we don't use it that much.

Seiken Densetsu had Chocobot, that alone makes it better than the remake.

You know, I can't really dislike Anise now I realized the things Meilin did to Ark and got away with.

that Mary Sue from Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits. I don't remember her name, but I do recall loathing her so very, very much.

I remembered her name, it's Lilia. Her singing was very annoying.

By the way, does Mei Lin from Terranigma count? She's not really a HEROINE per se -- not in the same way Elle is -- but she's still kind of annoying, especially during that clusterfuck called Dragoon's Castle.

I was more annoyed with the zombie town thing. It's not that I don't respect her necromantic arts, it's just that those zombies that threw their heads at you were really annoying. Of course, the jealousy and betrayal thing wasn't exactly cool either, but atleast Dragoon Castle had nice music.

Oh and I remember a heroine (more or less) that outdoes Shirley in every department: that Mary Sue from Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits. I don't remember her name, but I do recall loathing her so very, very much.

BTW speaking of Terranigma, holy f...
1630  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Any cool, local events? on: August 14, 2009, 03:34:22 AM
Not much. Our small town is typically described as "a hole in the ground filled with farmers" and because there is larger city with the same name, most people assume all news from our town is about the other Hengelo. Our town is older by the way, stupid city Hengelo stole our name and now we're known as "the other Hengelo" :(  

Hengelo is known for events related to horses and motorbikes. Two out of three statues in the town centre are related to these types of events. I guess we just like fast thing you can ride on? There is the Varsselring motorrace in June, which goes right through town. The one with the oldtimers attracts a lot of people as well. Other than that there is the now yearly re-enactment of The Battle of Achterhoek (good luck pronouning it if you don't speak Dutch :P ).

We have one museum filled with things from WWII. It's actually my former neighbour's collection. There used to be parts of a submarine in his front yard. Some people thought it was modern art.

Other things Hengelo is known for:
-Quick sportshoes. It was one of the big brands in the first half of the 20th century. The original company is gone, but the started it up again someplace else.
-Rockband "Normaal" sings about Hengelo in several songs of which "Oerend Hard" is the most famous.
-There is a small forest nearby, but for some reason it's called "'t Zand" (The Sand)

We're part of Bronkhorst, which is the smallest place city in the Netherlands. It's like a cute little RPG town and only 150 people live there, while Hengelo currently has 3500 citizens.

Now, if you want a really big event, one of the biggest events in the Netherlands, a 30-minute drive is enough to get there from Hengelo. De Zwarte Cross. It's started out as a small illegal motorrace, but now it's a huge event attracting over 100.000 visitors each year. It's all about races (often on very silly vehicles), beer and (hard)rock.

I vote for Okage: Shadow King. The whole devil king thing was a bit unclear in the beginning, but I liked how they pulled it all together. There was even some good foreshadowing, you know, the turtle story sidequest. It was all nice and subtle, compared to most other RPG's atleast.

My first response was "That's a woman?"

And you didn't call an ambulance/have someone take you to the hospital? Because, seriously, this sounds very irresponsible. Think of could have happened...

Luke (Tales of the Abyss)- As another poster mentioned, he is just plain unlikable the first 1/3rd of the game. Yeah, it was intentional, but still hard to bear until the time he changes.

I didn't mind it too much, mostly because the other characters agreed with me. It's much more annoying when the rest of the cast thinks it's perfectly okay for a character to be a complete a-hole/mary sue/annoying helium filled mascot character or whatever.
Code:
And for characters to think "oh he destroyed a town with his own powers and killing lots of people, but now he's being so goody but we'll see... *after a few seconds* oh! he doesn't seem so bad".



I was so glad they reacted that way! I read some topics on gamefaqs and people seemed to think their reaction was totally uncalled for. If I had been in the seem situation, I would have reacted the same. Just imagine
Code:
you spend nearly a whole day in a miasma filled town trying to save the population. You leave the spoiled brat alone for a moment and BOOM. The lands drops into this underground sea of poisoness mud and pretty much everyone dies. You'll die to if you don't get the fuck out of there and find a safe place soon. No wonder they snapped at Luke. The situation alone is enough to put anyone on edge and if your friend/ally is the one to blame...
