Well, most Ar girls pander to the otaku crowd one way or another. I'm just glad they picked a type that's easy to get along with. Even if you don't see Ion as a love interest she's still a nice girl. And hey, the game often offered some kind of friend/big brother reaction choice as well, didn't it?

Maybe it's too harsh, but too me a strong self of self worth is something you need to work for. There is nothing wrong with being avarage, but it doesn't make sense to think that is something that makes you special. Telling whole generations of kids their special and super awesome because they're just the way they are isn't fair to them, because acknowledging and understanding your own strengths and weaknesses is important in life.

Why should anywone be proud of a body constructed by poor eating habits and a lack of exercise? It's something anyone can do. Keeping your body healthy is much harder.

As a woman I was kinda glad the game paired me up with Ion instead of a character like Cass. Maybe it's because I have a soft spot for smart sweethearts, but I thought she was pleasant to be around. Good taste in entertainment too. If I could weave whatever song magic I liked, I sure as hell would have chosen a big mechanical dragon as well!

I did feel a little bad for not being able to tell her I'm not a man. She assumes the player is a dude (and I know most of them are) and is eager to believe there's a possibility they'll someday meet back in her home dimension... Is this what it feels like to be a plot twist?

To me it feels like the Tales serie has always had a darker side hidden behind colourful images. It's nice that the series is finally honest about it and even indulges in it a little. I think I would be upset if something like the bad ending was the actually ending, but since it's fully optional, I'm okay with it.

Maybe I should start exercising too... I mean, cycling to the next town to buy groceries is fine and all, but I think it should do something more. Maybe get one of those exercise bikes? If I did, I could work and exercise at the same time.

In other, kitten related news: it's not going to Rolo/Lulu/Milla/whatever because my sister's boyfriend has a bad taste in cat names. But, my sister still managed to accidently name one after a Tales character, so yay for me! Mint is adorable.

It won't hurt to try it out, but don't force yourself to use it all the time. The difficulty is fine just using autobattle and as the game progresses you'll be swifting paradigms more and more often. If you want more control over battles, it's better to focus on perfecting your understanding of that mechanic.

Argh.  I never liked the old style games (I have a thing against explicitly or very 'classic'-styled games).  But I think the PSP version might be worth me checking out one day.  I kinda miss parts of it.

SSH is kinda like a reunion of Tales of Vesperia VA's, so there's that too. Let's see...

Luna = Estelle
Jessica = Rita
Nash = Flynn
Nall = Yeager
Dyne/spoiler = Raven/spoiler
Ghaleon = Yuri

At heart I'm a big kid with drink preferences you'd expect from grannies.

I'm nog even a big kid, actually. I'm barely taller than the avarage 13-year-old...

I'm also starting to really dislike the battle system, the little control I have over whats going on is almost lost in the frantic pace of the battles and the constantly spinning camera.

The system is great during those fights that are long enough to actually control the flow of battle, the ones where you have to switch often to battle as efficiently as possible. Sadly, this means the battle system only gets to shine during boss battle and every other battle is kinda meh.

Oh, and it helps if you stop paying attention to whatever fancy shit the characters are doing and focus on the numbers and gauges.

(The battle camera in XIII isn't even the worst by the way. In XIII-2 it's like it's having a seizure and plans on sharing it with you.)

The game is incredibly streamlined. Two stats, two equipment slots and some very linear maps and story progression. However, if I ware to treat it as its own game. Not an FF title, not even a jRPG but an experiment, it's not half bad.

I think that's the right attitude. I went in without any noteworthy expectations (I don't strong nostalgic feelings towards the Final Fantasy series) and had a good time.

Namco Bandai's not doing so bad either nowadays and there's also NISA. I think it's more a matter of when than if.

I wouldn't count on Atlus to localize anything not SMT/Persona/Etrian Odyssey,

They publish other games as well, but Persona/MegaTen is doing really when I can imagine that's were they want to focus their limited resourches on. Still, doesn't mean there's zero chance...
42  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Gust making a spiritual successor to Ar Tonelico: Ar no Surge on: September 27, 2014, 09:43:38 AM
Because that's what many of those options to. The one dirty reward I remember is on Cass' side. Basically you can ask the Dere (or was it Tsun?) Queen to have some dirty times right there and then. It's 5000 DP, I think.
43  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Gust making a spiritual successor to Ar Tonelico: Ar no Surge on: September 26, 2014, 10:14:32 AM
Some expensive options need to be selected to dive further and they aren't always embarrasing. Actually, most aren't.

Hey, my sister has given female pets male names in the past. Her current dog (female) is called Levi, but also goes by Dom Ding (Stupid Thing), Honnepon and Dog.

...

The hamster she had before that went from Erwin to Stinky.

...

Rolo and Milla are doomed.
45  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: September 26, 2014, 08:45:08 AM
That's why they (hey partner has a say in it too, sadly) want something short and fun to say. Rolo, Lulu, Mimi, Mocca, Coco, Lica, Milla... Names like that.

Either that or something related to liquor.
