The only tales game that I have ever played was Tales of Xillia. I got what I expected from it. Nothing blew me away but I had a decent enough of a time.

I was working while listening so I cant recall if it was said in the last episode but what is the casts best Tales game?
Also thanks for warning me about how bad Tales of Phantasia GBA is. I have that mint in box somewhere and would have opened it someday. Might as well leave boxed.

All this time I never knew there was a Crest of the Stars 3 (Seikai no Monshou). Well its 2 OVAs + a 1 OVA preview but still very good. Space/sci-fi anime sometimes looks better and more real when its hand-drawn. Even when broadcasted in SD.

What an interesting coincidence, that around the same time several members around here have caught the Gundam Anime bug,  the latest Gundam Versus game would get announced for a western release, huh? Well, I'm certainly looking forward to getting in some giant robot action later this Autumn.

Screw it. Thunderblight Ganon is a dick (only Blight Ganon that has the capacity to straight up oneshot you without weird shenanigans), and it takes way too long to work my way back up to him just to instantly die during his second phase.

Plus, I'd like to actually play the game and I don't have the kind of time necessary to waste on trying to hardnose it anymore.

I may come back to this challenge again someday when I actually have the time to go for it.

^ this is where the Switch really comes in handy.  Playing on the go was about the only way I could fit in the 127 hours it took me to beat BotW.

Right now, all I know is that there's a Destiny Plan and that it's super bad. Since this is Gundam, I'll assume this means either (the equivalent of) a colony drop or a not!Death Star.

The Destiny Plan is actually what cements Durandal as a great antagonist.

Only four episodes left to go and that much is obvious. I'm not entirely sure how he plans on implementing it though, because it sounds like something that will need several generations to take hold. And even then... Well, unless you eliminate free will from the equation, people will keep wanting things they don't/can't have. That's human nature. Plus, what about basic economics? Like, you might excel at something, but what if many of those jobs were made obsolete due to technological advancements? What's supposed to happen to those people? And even aside from that, doing what you're good at is no shortcut to happiness.

big 2.0 update just happened, they're basically giving you 20 characters for free and implementing a whole new loot box system. I would say give it a shot if you haven't already, skins are actually obtainable without buying them now.

I doubt anyone with Meyrin will probably lose their plot armour, so... is this a case of 'Athrun did nothing wrong, it's all my fault' on Cagalli's and Meyrin's part?
No it is not a case of Athrun did nothing wrong...at least not explicitly. It is a case of "We are severing ties with a specific VA (or vice versa is happening) so we are writing a character out of the story." Not going to tell you which of the three it is though...also I have no idea as to why ties were severed. I probably have read the reason before but I have forgotten what it was if I have.

The reason specifically was due to the head writer stuffing Cagalli into the fridge to make room for the Kira x Athrun ship, Cagalli's VA getting into an argument with the head writer over her character's treatment, the head writer going to the director for a ruling on the matter, and the director banishing the character to the N-Zone because he wants to go home and sleep with his wife (who just so happens to be the head writer on this little project), and that's just what happened behind SEED's curtain. Destiny starts with efforts to mend fences, which obviously doesn't last very long, which in turn leads to Cagalli's VA to sever all ties to the role for over a decade over the matter, which ultimately leads to lots of 'insert character/voice here' moments in various SRWs and G Gen games.

Also SRW K, aka: the Cagalli Power Hour.

Don't make me worry! D: Well... I assume he'll be around for the final battle (to punch the crap out of Shinn? I'd be great if he could punch the crap out of Shinn!), so it'll probably not be too bad...
I don't recall anyone punching Shinn in the final fight...kicking I believe does happen though.

Right now, all I know is that there's a Destiny Plan and that it's super bad. Since this is Gundam, I'll assume this means either (the equivalent of) a colony drop or a not!Death Star. And if that's correct, Rey is following in the footsteps of Mask Face. That's all I got right now. But whatever his reasons, he'll probably get a chance to redeem himself.
Well technically the Destiny Plan has nothing to do with colony drops or death stars. Lord Palpatine however does use both to try and cause it to be implemented (you already saw the colony drop to prime people for the Destiny Plan). The Destiny Plan itself has nothing to do with either of those though.

I'd like to think he left the typo there for comedic effect.

I'm so hungry.
