Pseudonym there's a 0% chance of me finishing the game because I've played through about eight RPGs, total, and about half of those topped out between 5 to 15 hours in length. And one of them was Xenogears for some reason.

I have a hard time maintaining interest in anything. It's kind of awful. I think normal people just watch TV and die for fun, but I'm not big on either of those.

Honestly, I have the same problem. Even if I do find a game interesting, I'll get lazy and not finish it. Either that or I got other things going on in my life that take up my attention/have a higher priority. The last game I completely finished was Dues EX and that's not really a RPG.

Even with my gaming habit I still bought Trails yesterday. Will I finish it, who knows?

This actually applies to food though. I haven't really eaten normally since I started my current job, which was like, three years ago at this point. Lately I've just been eating cereal at dinner because I'm tired of things that have tomatoes in it which is literally anything else I might eat. I was eating scones and smoothies from Starbucks a lot but I'm kind of tired of having to chew dough. Had eggplant for lunch yesterday. Find the taste of grill char /super/ offputting right now.

I might like other things but I'm really prone to forgetting it.

That stinks. If my job was related to food, then I would be eating a lot of cardboard boxes. I would definitely like to eat plastic for dinner if that were the case.

It reminds me of Timesplitters, which is awesome.

This is my SOTM:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RrshPMtH0CY It's the "Love Hime" theme song that Onoda (and Tadokoro) sing in Yowamushi Pedal, and at the 1 minute mark of the video seeing all those high performance bicycles with anime wheels- it's everything I like in the world!  

And here's Onoda and Tadokoro singing the Love*Hime song in Yowamushi Pedal.  That was a defining moment in the story.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmiqUNutaRQ

Most of the playable characters are different.

Except that it was a fan rewrite of the series as the series writer herself was a huge fan of Jesus Yamato. Basically the SEED series is a lot like the FFXIII trilogy in that the first part was poorly written to begin with, but instead of using the second part to help try to fix the overall series, it instead just makes everything much much worse.

Also Cagali doesn't get better, she gets dis-existence. At some point Cagali disappears from the show altogether due to her voice actress getting into a dispute with the show writer over the treatment of her character.

My comment was directed towards the common fan belief that the storyline was rewritten based on fan backlash regarding Shinn. If the series writer is a believer of Jesus Yamato, that would seem to point towards my current belief that the end direction was always intended. Disagree with you that Seed was poorly written (actually disagree that FFXIII was poorly written, though it was alright) No comments on FFXIII-2 as I have not played it.

And Cagali does get better. Hell she gets better the moment they get her away from Yuna, although she does eventually end up vanishing unfortunately.

well we can see what the cast of Persona 3 have been up to since I think they're out of college at this point. From what I can tell with all those scars, Akihikos seems to have been traveling the world fighting bears. Assuming Mitsurus running her families corporation, and don't remember what happened with the rest of the P3 cast. Maybe Junpeis story in the P4A sequel will shed some light on what he's been doin since then.
Well he's a baseball player now. Aegis has been serving in Mituru's anti-shadow forces. Akihiko, after the events of P4A, decides he is going to become a police officer. Fuuka is in college. Yukari is an actress now. Ken and Koromaru I don't know beyond that Koromaru is apparently with Ken.

Maybe cause I am older and tired of the narrative predominately involving  15-17 year olds. I think older characters like ones from Persona 2: Eternal Punishment,  Digital Devil Saga or Catherine would be fresh change of pace.

P1 was high school
P2 was adults
P3/4 were high school

You're right, it's time to flip back.

It's not going to happen with the new format of RPG/dating sim though.
Saying P2 was adults is slightly misleading. P2IS was high school. I have yet to get around to playing P2EP, so I am assuming that is what you are referring to, and I am uncertain if that is accurate or not since according to Wikipedia it only takes place a few months after P2IS.

Not really seeing the "attention to detail" the game is supposed to be famous for though. It feels like a pretty bog-standard traditional JRPG.

Well, you said you weren't talking to every NPC, but that's where the attention to detail is. Instead of being interchangeable lore dispensers, every single NPC in the game has a personallity of their own and role in the world, however small it may be, and their dialogue changes frequently depending on where you are in the game. It really makes the towns feel like alive rather places where you stop once, hoover up all the information and then move on.

Ok, I'll join the party!!

Here goes...



If Shadow in FF6 was the first character that exponentially increased my appreciation of a game for no other reason than their being it, Dias was undoubtedly my second.

It was growing up with characters like him that shaped me to really measure my games but how much I cared about the cast. To a 13 year old boy who just didn't feel like "Cloud Strife" Dias was a certain brand of awesome that really attracted me. In fact, post Star Ocean 2 I don't think I cut my hair til I was like 17. Yep, I am indeed a weirdo.

Let's just agree she's a terribly designed character, inside and out (and in concept).

EDIT
Don't forget the period from hell see seems to be having.

omg x)

Except that James Earl Jones did not actually play Darth Vader. He only provided him with his voice, and I don't recall Vader using his voice to kill Hitler .

Yes, that's the only thing wrong with that story ;)
