I usually go by canon names when presented with them.  I don't ever feel the need to take ownership of a story's characters unless the game leads me in that direction.  When I have created characters like generics in a Disgaea or Tactics Ogre or a blank-slate protagonist like in a Dragon Quest or Mass Effect I use the male names Malcolm, Hector, Eltrio, Dante, and Randal; for females I have recurring names Rose, Lily, Iris, Godiva, and Samie.  Those male names are from specific video game characters, and the female names are either my family's dogs or my ex-girlfriends. 

Oh, one other thing I do for generics - I use the names of various colors in languages other than English (...about 90% French or Spanish).  My teams in Disgaea 3 and 4 had Azul, Rojo, Verde, Jaune, Blanche, Noire, and Murasaki.

Hey, new P4A2 (P-1 Climax) trailer: http://p-atlus.jp/p4u2/ (apologies if it's been posted elsewhere)

New character Sho seems like a villain.  My guess is that he's the human hacker working with the "mysterious entity" in the endings for P4A.  Two swords.  Could be fun.

I'm traveling most of the weekend so I don't think I'll be able to take part.  Don't want to risk doing this on phone IRC.

Went on second date with a girl two nights ago; she's a friend-of-a-friend I met at a party.  We were going to watch a movie, but at the last minute she scored some Capitals preseason tickets from one of her coworkers.  We ended up going out for drinks, then seeing the Caps-Blackhawks game from some 2nd-level seats.  She was totally charming at the game and I scored a quick kiss goodnight before we went separate ways.

This might be an unpopular opinion, but I think that Persona 1 is terrible and nobody should play it.  I have tried both versions, the PSP version more than once - I bought it thinking that just the PS1 port was bad, and I was wrong.  The Persona 2 duology is so much of an improvement that it's stunning.  Persona 1 is awful, the next five are excellent.  Woo, comma splices.

Heh, Qwarriors.  I usually get annoyed when a game seems TOO dependent on dice rolls, but Qwarriors takes it to a silly extreme and remains fun regardless.  Good times.  Haven't got a game group together any time in the past week or so except for one medium-sized round of drunken Cards Against Humanity.

I could start working on a Chrono Trigger or SO3 one =/

CT was the subject of the third quiz.  You didn't take part?
414  Media / Single-Player RPGs / The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC Announced for Steam/PSP on: September 06, 2013, 10:01:15 AM
Can someone help me understand these games?

What order are they supposed to be played through?
With this one, will they all be on Steam?
The first TitS will be on Steam later this year.  The second one will be on PSN and Steam in 2014. 

The earlier Legend of Heroes games are in a weird order in their Western releases and my recommendation... is not to play any of them.  The PSP versions of LoH 1 through 3 (which I think are actually 3 through 5?) are bad.  Just play Trails in the Sky, as it's the first chapter in a new saga, and then wait for the second chapter to come out next year.

Monsoon: I am pretty sure the "Vita" version is just the PSP version playable on Vita.  You can transfer your save files from your PSP to the Vita if that's the case.
Huh, I thought that transferring save files wasn't an option.  In that case, decision made.

I'd feel comfortable hosting on FF VI, FF Tactics, Skies of Arcadia, Earthbound, Secret of Mana, Tales of Phantasia, Tales of Vesperia, or any Dragon Quest game between III and VIII.  So... who's hosting?  Who wants to?  We do want another show, right?

Well, now I have a dilemma.  I own TitS on PSP.  Physical copy.  I want to link a playthrough from 1 to 2.  I am also planning on buying a Vita in 2014.  My options:

-Buy 2nd Chapter on PSN, play it on my PSP.  Move it to Vita later when I eventually get one. 
-Buy TitS on Steam, replay it, buy 2nd Chapter on Steam, play that. 
-Buy a TitS on Vita, replay it, buy 2nd Chapter on Vita, play that. 

Right now leaning towards option 1, honestly.  Option 3 will probably happen eventually, but a year or two down the line when I want to replay all of them. 

...does anyone know if XSEED has their PSN games on sale often? 
418  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Mighty No. 9 is not Mega Man on: September 01, 2013, 10:52:26 AM
KickStarter is at $465 million in less than 24 hours (there's a trailer on the KickStarter page)

Definitely not Mega Man. 

He can transform his body, see?  Mega Man can't do that. 

Those enemies have traffic cones on their heads and not hard hats.  And he's glowing in three colors! Totally not Mega Man.

OK, Keiji Inafune is the design lead, but this is a COMCEPT game and not a CAPCOM game, so it can't be Mega Man. 

So, this might not be Mega Man, but I'll probably give to the KickStarter anyway.  Because... I dunno.  It seems familliar.  Like an old best friend just came back from a years-long absence.

Is there another quiz planned for next week?  Do we know what the next game subject is going to be?  I'm just full of questions and have no answers.

I went to the open tabletop day at my local game store (almost every Saturday is open tabletop) and played a pretty excellent resource management game called Tzolk'in.  You manage workers, acquire resources, build monuments, and move up technology and offering trees on a board that has six large interlocking gears - after each round the gears turn, moving your workers along resource pathways and bringing you closer to the points at which you need to pay worker upkeep.  It's a pretty eye-catching board, and the game was both impressive in its design and fun to just see in action, with its gears-turning gimmick serving the gameplay well.
