Are they really the ones you know them to be? Is Akane really Akane? Is Junpei really Junpei?

*which* Sigma will we be experiencing? Both? Or just one? Somehow, the work of VLR needs to find its way INTO ZTD, but that itself will be just one meta-puzzle among many, I'm sure.

Furthermore, who's to say that it isn't 9/9 that are Espers? That could get ugly. :)

I also think Carlos might be Santa. "Carlos Santana." I ALSO ALSO think Santa is the overall villain of the entire story, the one behind the organization Dio was in. Call me crazy. I have lots of wacky theories.

IN ANY CASE I can't wait for this game. Holy crap.
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that yes they are the ones we know because otherwise that would be a stupid ass pull. Sigma will be old Sigma and only old Sigma because we see young Sigma's return to the past and it is after the events of this game and after old Sigma messed everything up because he had a crush on Diane (or something like that).

I dunno about there being 9 espers. Nothing we have seen so far indicates that Diane was an esper.

Then there's the fact of that name: "Brother." Whose brother? I say: June (Akane).

So I think the "Brother" Santa is not the one we interacted with at all in the 999 setup. If anything, that Santa remained unknown (non-existent? non-accessible?) until the events of 999 took place. The shadowy kid-run organization that brought "Zero" into existence may have accidentally had some nasty side effects in the many-worlds-verse. And so, "Black Santa" it is.

(I also still think that Quark is a love child of Junpei and June from an alternate timeline, but everyone tells me I'm stupid for thinking that. Someone explain to me Tenmyouji's loyalty to the kid, then?)
Brother is Left's brorther. That is what his name is referencing. It is explicitly stated. Brother is upset over Left's death and clones a bunch of him. Dio is one of those clones. In case you didn't notice, Dio looks nothing like Akane. :p

As for Quark, Junpei raised him from birth and Quark is what basically gave him a reason to live. That is why he is so loyal to Quark, because Quark is his adopted son.

Your theories here all require there to be a way to move matter between timelines which is an ability that has never been demonstrated in the universe before.

So the main page has a translation of an article that includes the names and descriptions of the nine characters:

•Carlos: a hot-blooded man with a strong sense of justice, who dotes on his younger sister as she has a terminal disease.

•Akane: She appears to be a neat and clean woman, but she specializes in trickery.

•Junpei: After 999, he joined a detective agency to pursue Akane. Currently a runaway.

•Q: A boy who has lost his memory and wears a mask resembling a pig's head.

•Eric: Works at a ice cream shop and is dating Mira.

•Mira: A "sexily shaped" woman who is dating Eric.

•Diana: A nurse who doesn't like fighting

•Phi: A blunt woman participating in the "Dcom" experiment in order to save the world.

•Sigma: Despite only being 22, Phi sometimes calls him an old man. He's walked into a bizarre life.

I honestly have some issues with this group of people. 5/9 of them are returning characters (unless K somehow ends up not possessing one of them like was explicitly stated in ending for the last game). That means that there are only 4 people that we could hypothetically suspect, and one of them is freaking Diane who we know worked till her death after this to undo these events. So that leaves us with 3 "suspects"? Also the main page mentions that apparently 6 passwords are needed to escape and someone needs to die to get each one. I guess the fact that we have....5 espers will be used to circumvent the deaths, but I'm curious as to how we ended up in a lose condition on the original timeline if that is the set up, especially since at least 4 of the 5 espers survive these events.

Decided to get Yellow version, but part of me wishes I had gotten Red for the nostalgia trip instead. Gotta love those awful gen 1 battle sprites.
Fun fact, the sprites in the American Red and Blue were actually the sprites from the Japanese Blue version of the game (which is different than American Blue). In Japan there were ever crappier sprites for Red and Green (which American Blue is based on).

So Revelation came out yesterday. I hope everyone enjoying it. I'm now getting ready to start the most tedious aspect of support grinding, parent child supports! Well already started them by doing all of the Female Corring exclusive supports. But next? Next is doing it for all the fathers including Male Corrin, this is going to take a while (Kaze and Silas, I hate both of you right now x_x).

Not sure who my final pairings are going to be yet. The ones that I am currently leaning towards are:
Keaton x Hana
Laslow x Peri
Hayto x Orochi (or Nyx)
Subuki x Selena
Silas x Hinoka
Corrin x Velouria

If I stick with those, that just leaves...14 to go. x_x


So Fates did pretty well for itself apparently.

Also Pokemon RYB but who cares, they have been the single most evergreen titles in existence.
Good to see it is doing well. Although I fear the strong sales may mean that we are going to start to see multiple editions as a mainstay of the Fire Emblem series.

Anyone remember watching Gundam Wing back in the day before drone warfare was a thing?
Yeah and then I watched it again in the past year and was like, "Wow the mobile dolls plot point seems incredibly more relevant now then it did when first released." And then I also rejoiced because it was still good even after all these years.

I hate to plagiarize but..."So a Priest and a Nun walk into a game...".
Neat. I'll certainly play it if it gets an official release, but I'll be honest, I am more interested in getting Zero and Ao at this point.
67  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Zero Escape 3 official on: March 09, 2016, 06:55:43 AM

The 3D looks better than ZE2?? (not that it would be hard to be)
Ugh was hoping for drawings rather than CG, but I'll take improved CG...I guess? Not like I have a choice.

Now for the characters...

Number 9 looks like future Sigma...in past Sigma's body. Number 8 is Diana because as I recall Luna was based on Diana and 8 is the only one with the right hair color (she also has the right eye color). I'm guess 5 is the body K is possessing due to the helmet. And 10 is probably the new Zero, who my money is on being Brother. And is number 7 an earlier version of Phi? Looks like it at least.

The biggest question in my mind as I look at these characters though is...how the heck did any of these people get selected for a NASA mission. Also side note, I find number 4 to be very punchable. >.>

Yeah (sorry for not responding sooner, only really check the forums once a day).
69  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Test on: March 07, 2016, 06:10:27 AM
So...anyone else unable to see any threads in the Game Journals section?

Also currently replaying .Hack//G.U. and being reminded why most fans tend to ship Haseo x Alkaid.
Because that is an awesome ship.

I was going to buy the games (yea they are expensive but I could just resell them) but I keep thinking that because trapped in an MMO is a plotline for like every other anime out today that .hack//GU HD trilogy will be re-released. Alas I guess Bandai/Namco doesn't like money.
Eh, there really isn't that much getting trapped in an MMO in G.U. Happens to one character, but that is more of SIGN or original games thing. Although don't get me wrong, I would love a G.U. HD release. I would platinum that thing so hard.

If that's the case and the only side effect is a nosebleed then hell why isn't everybody using it? After all its old, probably cheap tech and they wouldn't have to even train pilots. 
In episode 20 it is heavily implied by chocolate guy that nobody on Earth has it because Gallahorn basically made it culturally taboo to be anything other than pure human in order to minimize the use of it in possible uprisings. On Mars on the other hand, it is common among the disposable members of society and only the disposable members because of the death rate. Also I could have sworn they said something like it has to be done when you are young in an early episode, but I might be remembering details wrong.

Oh hey they are giving out the point blank skill book in the third DLC. Neat. Wonder what other DLCs to expect in this third wave (unless this is it and we now have to wait for a fourth wave for any more).
73  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: March 03, 2016, 06:20:40 AM
Gundam 21
I don't think I've ever seen so many death flags in one single episode.
Hmm I'm a week behind since I am watching on Crunchyroll, but I have a few suspicions on who might have death flags set...or it might be more accurate to say I have a few suspicions on who doesn't have death flags set since this season finale is feeling like it is going to be a massacre. Top of my casualty list is the Hammerhead and Brother...not completely sure how that is going to happen though since the main battle will presumably be taking place on Earth. >.>

Participant 8.

... Yeah I'm not even touching this one.  At least Lotus managed to be pretty cool, here's hoping she's more than skin-deep.

...I thought this whole thing was supposed to be taking place at a NASA test site? Why the heck is NASA's dress code so freaking lax in this universe?
75  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Unsung Story: A Kickstarter by Yasumi Matsuno. on: February 29, 2016, 06:31:03 AM
A wishy-washy update from Playdek yesterday. They resolved some issues with their first creditor, now they're working on their second creditor. If successful, they could be a better financial standing to refund backers who want their financial support back.


Me as backer and whelp... sad panda:

I feel that they are underestimating the degree to which people are going to want refunds at this stage. Also I noticed that they have already spent close to 3x the funding amount on the project and still are not done.
