a Galaga alien is already confirmed as an Assist Trophy
See, I actually don't think the Galaga aliens are actually "Assist Trophies" per se, namely because of this. The S Flag is a figure of Namco tradition, and considering the way he's holding it in the air, (like an assist trophy) it makes me wonder if this is some sort of new assist trophy-like item, but with Namco characters?

I'm not entirely sure what I think. I personally am a fan of the Monster Hunter formula, and the whole hookshot mechanic looks like something I could totally find quite fun! Also, it's partially localized by Japan Studio. I've enjoyed their stuff in the past!

On the OTHER hand, it is co-developed by Dimps. I really don't like Dimps.

The PSP forms of Ys 1 &2 are not horribly different from the rest of the dozens of remakes, just more visually impressive. If you've got a Vita to play Ys Chronicles: 1&2 on, I feel that's the best way to do so. However, no matter what format it's in, 1 and 2 are quite...dated. The bump and grind combat is used in most formats of the game except for the DS remake which has an option to press a button to swing as well.

If you don't mind, however, that's a decent place to start. However, with a Vita, you've got access to Oath in Felghana (3's remake), Memories of Celceta (4's remake), Ark of Napishtim (terrible PSP port of 6), and Ys Seven. These games have little to no connection, minus one shared character between 6 and 7. You really could start with ANY of them.

Just know that even if the combat of 1&2 isn't to your liking, the rest of those are perfectly fine action rpgs with much more enjoyable combat. Difficulty wise, however, I would consider playing 6 after the others. I found 6 to be quite a bit more difficult than the others.

I'm REALLY intrigued by the customizable movesets. I'm going to be experimenting with that a TON, even though I can't go competitive with it. The only disappointment for me was that Midna was confirmed not playable. I thought her with or without Wolf Link would've been really nifty.

Aaaaalright! That's the end of Xenoblade! Fantastic game, even if it did get a bit off the rails towards the end.

I've just finished my first ever playthrough of Chrono Cross! (tooot!)
I'm now working on making my way through what I have left of Xenoblade. 77 hours in! Go go go!

Not quite sure how much of an RPG it really is, but I honestly REALLY liked Orphen: Scion of Sorcery on PS2. The gameplay mechanics were...bizarre to say the least, but overall, I felt it was pretty enjoyable.

I will never be Tiki's Mar-Mar. That is okay.

Wild Arms 5: The Road to Tomorrow Follows Behind You

I believe I am somewhat in the minority of liking Masato Kouda's work on Wild Arms more than Naruke's. Not to say her's is BAD, I still find 1-3's to be incredible. I just somewhat enjoys the newer stuff a bit better.

Nope.  I think this is one of those situations where my bias SHOULD be leaning towards Naruke, but Agematsu and Kouda did such a fucking great job with the series after her (actually, iirc, she was sick during WA4's production).

Next to Dahngrest from Tales of Vesperia, I totally consider Guara Balbao to be one the most absolutely chill town themes I've ever heard.
Also, TERRIBURU MONSTURU ATTACKINGU CURU is also one of my favorite standard boss themes in any game ever, really.

Wild Arms 5: Persephone Battle
This is most certainly NOT the sort of song that comes to anyone's mind when discussing Wild Arms, but nevertheless, this is a beautifully crafted song, and one of my first exposures to the soundtrack of Wild Arms 5.

Bought 2 jars of Bacon Dressing and dumped them into a bowl.
Made a few hard boiled eggs, sliced them up, and put them into the bowl as well.
Heated it all up, then dumped a bunch of romaine lettuce into it.
Beautiful.

I always thought I was somewhat decent at writing for Philosophy courses, but Philosophy of Science is VERY MUCH an exception to that rule. I enjoy Philosophy, and I am adequate at Science courses, but this one's quite unusual. I am usually never content with "Sailing the high Cs," but I feel like I might have to settle for that this time around. I just can not, for the life of me, link reasoning methods with particular experiments that have happened throughout the ages and adequately explain my own thought processes behind these on paper.

I've recently gotten a hold of Gundam Extreme vs. Full Boost on PS3, which is a pretty dang simple game to navigate. Incredibly fun too, unlike many OTHER Gundam games.
