I don't understand the Cheria hate. Like, it genuinely baffles me.

She got caught once.  Never again was she a damsel.  People like to pretend she was pathetic and weak for the entire game,when I was really given the exactly opposite opinion. 

And she was pretty rightfully angry at Asbel.  I honestly wouldn't have forgiven him so quickly if I was in her place. 

So she has a few girly moments. Big deal. I mean, would you really want to jump into some stomach acid and be digested and then pood out?  Really?

Edit: Upon consideration of this post, Lloyd is far more of a damsel in his game.  He needs rescuing on at least 2 or 3 separate occasions, both due to being stupid early on.

I never really thought of that.
O.o When did I ever say that I hated her because she was a damsel in distress or because she is girly at some point? I hate her because she is annoying. I don't remember all the specifics of why I found her to be annoying, but I do remember disliking how she seemed to have an unhealthy desire to turn back the clock so that everything was exactly the same as it was during her childhood ignoring that the advancement of time changes people.....and then the universe bent over backwards to give her exactly what she wanted.

Plus I hated her "romance" with Asbel, that thing was painful to sit through. Every time I had to watch the chemistry (or more accurately lack there of) between those two characters I had to cringe as it was painfully obvious that they would not work as a couple no matter how much they loved each other. This is the sort of couple that would end up just not talking to each other after being married to each other for a few years because they have nothing in common, but then refuse separate because they love each other so much. And really I got the impression that her feelings for Asbel were more of "He was my childhood crush, therefore we are destined to be together," than love. Now I'm tempted to dig through my posts from when I was playing Graces f to see if I went into anymore detail there...

Edit: Oh hey found this. Seems I actually remembered my comments on her pretty well.

Code:
So yeah....Cheria, horrible character. She's a person who is trapped in the past and refuses to move past when she what? 8? (I suppose Asbel has this issue as well) She just is stuck in the exact same place, and she never grows. I know that her aid work is suppose to be her growth or w/e, but she just is yearning for the past and I don't recall her ever getting past that.....in fact the world just decides to grant her wish because why the hell not. Her love for Asbel? Totally just a childhood crush that really only exists because it seems like it was "expected" or something. Her and Asbel have no chemistry and could probably barely stand being in the same room as each other if it wasn't for their "pure and perfect love". Frankly I see their marriage ending up being very passive aggressive, where both of them hate each other without realizing it and staying together just because they have convinced themselves that they are in love. And goddamn it, this relationship gets way too much attention. Arggh!!!!

I'm getting more of a Kamen Rider vibe from this than anything.
Eh I can see that also. Regardless of the intended inspiration, I still like the change of personas enveloping a person. Although I do have to wonder as to how exactly that is going to work with stuff like Mitamas. My first thought was maybe there is no wild card this time, but then I remembered Igor is shown. I guess personas enveloping a person could end up being a mechanic that isn't always in play or just for cut scenes. Alternate possibility I guess could be no personas for the wild card that are smaller than him.

The number of paths for this to work is fairly small, while the number of paths for this to top the CDI games is fairly significant. I am not going to get my hopes up.

Honestly my biggest question right now is what era are they going to be going for or are they just going to make their own? Obvious answer is they make their own (which fill me with dread). However I feel like OoT could be turned into an absolutely amazing series.....although OoT is my favorite so I might be biased.

So did anyone else notice that they are making the personas.....closer to their roots conceptually this go around? Oh geez it is difficult to explain what I am thinking. Okay so we all know that personas as a concept come from the work of Jung as a concept of a personality shown to the outside world to hide one's true self from the world and I think also to protect oneself. In previous Persona games, personas have basically been summons in terms of how they appear in game. However in Persona 5, it appears that they have changed it up so that the Personas envelop the persona user's body completely separating them from the outside world in the same way that personas are supposed to protect a person's true self by hiding it from others. I like that change up.

Hard to say when the cat/Morgana is hanging out there with the rest not saying anything in the trailer.
Might not say anything in the trailer but we do see it "transform" and it is a party member, so it is probably the obligatory mascot party member.

Hyrule Warriors.

Oh my lord this is fun.
Do you have the DLC? Because young Link with the Fierce Diety Mask just released yesterday. :D

I keep typing "Buy new Xenoblade" in every search box but nothing comes up. Why is this game making me stupid enough to do this, WHY?!
Just preorder on amazon. Best you are going to get at this point short of importing. :p

I thought the Legacy (the big ship the game takes place on) was fine.... because it was Shirley that needed to get fucking killed.  OMG was there EVER a WORSE character EVER MADE?????  My jaw dropped and I smiled when
Code:
Senel rejected her.
  An amazing and rare gaming moment if there was one.  Shirley can rot.
Well we can agree on Shirley being horrible at least. I would however put Cheria as being worse, but my hatred for her knows no ends.

Last time I played it was when it came out, so my memory is foggy.  I remember it being a pretty typical 'destroy the world' sort of ordeal, and I have no IDEA what the three main bads were up to anymore.  But I remember loving the cast working together, and enjoying the character chapters quite a lot (despite the retreaded dungeons).  It wasn't the best, but at the time I enjoyed it.  I still give it credit for having the most unique game location in the series; a grand land ship is a cool idea and I love how the 'mainland' is never actually explored at all.
Well I admit that last time I played it was around release, and I barely remember anything regarding anything because I seem to have blocked details from my mind. >.> All I really remember is that I didn't care about anything going on, I hated all the character except maybe the hammer guy and Grue(is that the vase girl's name), and I hated the fact that the whole thing took place on a single continent (which I think I wanted to see crash into the ocean's depths).

Legendia is great! Amazing! ...if you can get over the battle system, which is a HUGE chunk of what takes up your time... x(
THe characters are wonderful, the plot is quite decent, the character chapters are superb (but unfortunately involve revisiting EVERY SINGLE OLD DUNGEON FOR A SECOND FUCKING TIME), the music is grand (and yes, even better IN context :), and it's a pretty great installment.  I'd never want to play it again because of that battle system, but if you wanted a go with GameShark codes, then there's that. :P
Eh, personally I found the story and characters of Legendia to be.....lackluster at best. It is easily in competition for my least favorite Tales game up there with Graces f and Tales of Sumphonia 2.

Like there's turn counts which if you compete the map within them, you get a 100 Medal bonus, but you don't get to spend your Medals anywhere in the demo.
I don't think you "spend" medals. I think you just collect them to go up in rank and then going up in rank gets you new sub-weapons. I could be wrong though.

Double posting, don't care. :p

So Monday's world trigger was the end to a great fight. However as wonderful as that fight was, I am 100x more stoked for the next fight because they are fighting Suzunari-1. There are two important things about Suzunari-1. First off they appear to be another branch team which is interesting since we have no knowledge of the Suzunari branch other than they have this squad (and presumably only this squad since we have not seen a Suzunari-2 squad). Secondly, and perhaps much more importantly, this squad has Murakami Ko in it.

Murakami Ko hasn't appeared too much in the series (I think he has had four appearances so far), but he is a complete and total badass from what we have seen. He appears to have soloed one Rabit by himself and successfully tanked against 3 of the advanced model Rabits. Plus he seems to dual wield a kogetsu and a raygust. Since the rank wars started, I have been looking forward to seeing him in action more than any other character introduced in the invasion arc. Interesting note is that the rest of his squad seems to be considerably less powerful, so I'm curious if they are going to go into details as to why they made a squad. Time will tell.
162  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGs where picking your active party was hard on: February 03, 2015, 06:40:36 AM
How about Chrono Cross?  Granted, there are times when picking and choosing is pretty easy, but there are other times when it's not. 

It bcomes a bit more fun to pick when you don't get Glen. :P
Why would you ever do that though? :p

You know what's worse than Gundam Build Fighters being one big Gundam model advertisement loosely disguised as an actual entertainment product: The fact that it actually makes me want to part with my money. I seriously can't even look at a promo for this show anymore...

...on the plus side, I have some models to build now...too bad I don't have any place to put them...oh God help me...
The correct solution to this problem is to buy shelves, and then build the shelves. Then you pray that the building the shelves got some of it out of your system. If not then at least you have a nice place to put your future acquisitions as well.

I really wish I could figure out why the gameplay did nothing for me. I mean it really does have the feel of Valkyria Chronicles, which I really do love. But there is something.....missing I guess which I just can't put my finger on.
165  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Code name S.T.E.A.M. for 3ds on: January 31, 2015, 06:14:53 AM
So I checked out the demo yesterday. I am somewhat torn on this game. On one hand, the gameplay did not particularly excite me (not really sure why since it was Valkyria Chroniclesish which I love). On the other hand, oh my god the game's story is amazing and hilarious. The cut scenes have a great comic book feel to them which makes for a unique presentation. The fact that I am controlling Henry Fleming from The Red Badge of Courage, a cyborg John Henry, Tiger Lily from Peter Pan, and the Lion from the Wizard of Oz while on a mission given to me by Abraham Lincoln in his steam powered air ship is just so batshit insane that I have to see where it goes next.
