So, while I was exploring Lumiose (mostly just walking like crazy to hatch an egg... which still hasn't hatched yet) I randomly encountered a
ghost girl in an office building who floated by me and said "you're not the one."
I'm curious if that's a one-off or if that's a hint to a further sidequest. 
I am betting that is a location where a specific event Pokémon triggers some event (or a Mystery Gift key item that triggers a legendary). So assuming it is related to a ghost that would mean Giratina or maybe Hoopa.

Speaking on the subject of death, all this talk has reminded me that I once has a dream during which I believe I went to the afterlife (or at least the space between this life and the next) and spoke with an angel. I suppose it is equally likely (or considerably more likely) that it was just a dream, but to me I feel like it was real or at least a perception of what that portion of the afterlife is really like. Mind you I don't have any real theological revelations from said dream. Basically it went:

-I die in the dream
-I am in a black void with nothing in it
-Voice(angle) speaks to me saying that I've been given an extra week
-I ask why
-Silence for a few seconds followed by voice saying it didn't know why
-Then I am back where I died in the dream

Doesn't really give much of value, but the dream happened and it was real to me. Hopefully I was just in the space between this life and the next (or in "processing") as a black void would be a very boring afterlife.

Side note: I also saw a ghost when I was really little, so I really have to wonder why I struggle so much with the concept of the afterlife at times/the soul. I guess it is a combination of me fearing that I am wrong while another part of me fearing that I am right, but that other people are right about what the afterlife is (aka something that I don't want) making me hope that I am wrong, but still wanting to be right about not existing.....and I am just ranting now.

Who could murder this face?

Ah the joys of getting hardware at launch. I set my PS4 up yesterday and nearly thought that I had bricked it when I tried to update via the interwebs. After the system restart and indicating that I accepted the ToS and such, I just got a black screen for more than 10 minutes. I left it for a while unsure of whether it was working without video or not before just giving up and unplugging it. Then it seemed I might have bricked it because I could not get it to turn on. After a while though I accidently activated a safe mode boot up. From there I was able to start the system update via usb. And now it seems to be working fine. So hurray!

My butt is tingling with excitement~!!!!!!!


I could have said "other" parts. :D

Yeah but that would have been hawt! :P Unless you are talking about other "other" parts, in which case I have no idea of what we are talking about anymore. o.o

Quick run down for me. I was raised as a Lutheran and went to a religious school at my church from Pre-K to 8th grade. Sometime during high school my religious beliefs shifted to include polytheistic/animist elements. As time has gone past, my religious beliefs have sort of shifted to being a combination of "I don't know," and "Everyone is right....kinda." Basically I believe that every religion is viewing a portion of the same thing focusing on things that make the most sense to them, but there is a larger picture that no one is fully capable of understanding, but that it is still our duty to try and reach a full understanding of it by coming to understand all views of it and reaching our own conclusions. I would give the answers as I currently understand them, but I should be getting to work and I want to touch on one topic brought up here....

The afterlife. Wow this is a touchy subject for me because there is no "good" answer. Heaven/eternal life? Most bring concept ever. Hell? At least it should in theory be less boring than eternal unchanging perfectness. Joining a collective consciousness? This to me is hell, I like my sense of self. Reincarnation? See liking my sense of self. Nothingness? See liking sense of self. What I would hope for is a changing afterlife where I still maintain who I am. Closest thing I can think of is Valhalla with its constant battles (which could be really fun if the Astral Plane is real and is where the afterlife is) and dying/rebirth. Doesn't feel right to me unfortunatly. Needless to say I'm not in any rush to find out the truth of the afterlife.

You mean Akiko Shikata? I ended up importing some of her other cds. The Harmonia album is amazing, and Navigatoria is almost as good.
That name sounds right for the one I couldn't remember. I like her music in Ar Tonelico, but I tend to prefer Haruka Shimotsuki in general....for whatever reason. Side note, I imported all 6 of the Harmonics CDs for the Ar Tonelico games.....probably will end up importing the CDs for this one also.

Ha! Joke's on you. I'd make a harem of anime waifus and those are already personality-less, wish-fulling, mono-trait, doormats who are all secretly dirty whores and sluts inside (they just need you to show them).
Well good luck in making enough money to support your harem while still having enough time in the day to do anything with them. :p

Edit: Also be careful on your selections otherwise you might end up with a School Days ending.

^ I got turned off Magi by the first episode when I saw an <8 year old fondling breasts like old men wish they could (that, and I heard it's going to likely be one of those 500 episode shows where my bandwidth and patience said "no").  Did it get better and less perverted?  Should I check the manga?
Yes check out the manga. I mean be warned that the "<8 year old fondling breasts like old men wish they could" is sort of the series sense of humor. It basically does a few light chapters between each major arc, and they frequently include at least one chapter that has a scene like that. Those chapters however are a minority of the series as a whole.

The anime does change a couple of things which I didn't like much though (like season 1 last episode... wtf was that?)

Finally, Morgiana is an incredible character and she alone makes following this serie worthwhile.
I don't even want to think about how bad the last episode of season 1 must have been. I saw the second to last episode of season 1 and my response was basically, "I love me some Magi, I will support it anyway I can to ensure more of it gets over, but this is not Magi. Not at all. I'm out. Damn them for screwing up a major character probably because they want to make the Sasuke clone more important or some nonsense like that. Grumble grumble gumble.

However yes, Morgiana is awesome.

Cool, there's a robot too in the party apparently.

It's been a long time since I've been hyped about a game to this degree =)

That's kinda what I was getting at actuallly.  Ciel seems more affiliated with the robot than the MC.  SO I wonder if it'll be more canon pairings than harem.

I'm kinda psyched too.... I don't know why.

I would be willing to put money down that there will be heroine choice of some kind for the ending at this point. If the battle system had two singers like in Ar Tonelico 2, then I might be willing to believe that they were going to go for a canon pairing route, but since my understanding is that the singer is switched between the two (or three since I would also be willing to put money down that there will be a third singer.....because successor to Ar Tonelico) I feel very confident that they are going to go for the "harem" solution.

Side note have they announced the singers for the game yet? The presumed intro singer sounded similar in style and voice to the one for the Ar Tonelico games, so I assume she is the same/back (and I do not remember that singer's name immediately). I'm hoping Haruka Shimotsuki (hope I spelled that right) returns as she generally had my favorite pieces.

Also I am psyched.....but Ar Tonelico is my current favorite game, so no surprises thee.

-you can create an army of yous or a harem of your favorite person

Horrible ethical issues be damned?

So yesterday I believe I finished collecting friend safaris as I believe I now have access to every single Pokémon in the friend safaris.....I have almost no intention of actually doing anything with most of these Pokémon, but completionist drive or something like that. >.>

I'm a (3) Millionaire as of now, and I think I can buy Alcatraz if I wanted.
3 million? Plebian. I only interact with people with at least 4 million. Harumph.
I do not speak with people who pick their clothes out of a trash can. Ho-ho-ho-ho!
Oh my, the underclass is getting uppity. It is alright for you admit that you are jealous of my fancy shiny pants that I bought in Luminose or the designer bag that I got there as well. No one will think less of you for desiring to be as fashionable as your betters. Ho-ho-ho-ho.

The worst is that creepy old guy who tells me I should bask in the essence of old man dandyism or something like that.  It's made extra creepy given that I play as a girl.   
Really? I thought the worst was the bonding guy. I never decided whether that guy is creepier for guys or for girls. Just remember it is bonding time! *fade to black*

Say hey, does anyone know if the coupon for the Lumiose Boutique even exists?  I heard patrons talking about it like it was a rumor.  Because although I want the black trenchcoat dress, 300K is a LOT to pony up.  200K for the black purse is a lot to pony up too.  

Oh, and doing PR video show-and-tell with random passerby is fun. 
You get it with Pokemiles according to the guide book.....no really knows the details at the moment though. People are speculating that it might be unlocked through the currently unreleased attractions though. Really though just battle your way up to Grand Duke status using the Amulet Coin on your first Pokémon and the Gold Writ once it unlocks (actually use the best Writs you have unlocked for maximum grinding). You'll have so much money coming out of your ears by the end that you can buy all the outfits and still have money left over....well male outfits at least. I think females have more outfits so you might need a bit more grinding.

Hey you know what else was a bad Suikoden game? ALL OF THEM.
Thems fighting words! 5 was an amazing game (at least to me), and the majority of the rest of the series ranged from average to good. Biggest exception of course being 4 (which ironically was the one that got me into the series).
