In the midst of all this Trumpiness, Obama commutes Chelsea Manning's sentence. I'm sure opinions on this would be split even here, but I think of it as a positive.

It's the first in the series, so whoever makes it in will largely be a popularity contest. That and factoring in movesets, does every main character(besides Micaiah and Hector) use a sword? Maybe they should work on that, one of the biggest pluses of Suikoden 5 was that the main character wasn't a sword user.

Might be a buy for me if they make a sequel, I usually skip the first game to let them work out the kinks.
If the criteria is just "can they use a sword" then I think that might be correct? There is a some variety among the sword users are the games go on (such as Robin using a Sword/Tomb combo and Corrin using a Sword/Dragonstone combo). Truthfully, despite there being so many sword lords, they can make some decent variety among them. I mean Ike's one handed longsword technique will differ from Marth's fencing technique which will differ from Chrom's sword and board style (which is what I would personally give him). Some of the lords from the SNES games might be a bit harder to differentiate, but I think can at least make them feel different (once they eventually add all of them).

As for Suikoden, didn't the majority of main characters in that series use non-sword weapons? Tir used a staff, Riou used tonfas, Hugo used...a dagger I think?, IV's hero used twin swords, Kyril used...a weird sword staff thing(?), and V's used the three sectioned staff.

Okay, then.

Destiny: The Collection - I think I finished the main quest of the original game and am working on The Taken King.

Dragon Quest VII 3DS - Finished the submerged land's quest and am on the road to hopefully recruiting Mervyn. Hero's still a mage, Maribel's still a sage, and Ruff's still a chimera.

Kingdom Hearts Unchained Chi - The special quests for this week involve gilding medals, and I desperately need a speed one and a higher nova level to fully complete each quest's objectives.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II - I'm liking it thus far, but wish you could just turn off battle animations completely instead of having to constantly skip them.

^ not sure that's a fair comparison. Kefka is more analogous to a hitler type

Now see, what they SHOULD have done was made Kefka insanely addicted to pea soup with digestive/gas/flatulence problems and he could have proved more believable and sympathetic.

They missed the boat on that one.

I'm clearly missing a reference here.

Anyway, I think my comparison is fair, or fair enough to demonstrate my point.

I NEVER enjoy bad guys who bad things because...they're BAD! ooooooo. Didn't see that coming.

Do I think every villian needs to have bouts of moral dilemma all the time, no, but it at least would be multi-dimensional.

Kuja wanted to end the world, but at least I could kinda see why his character behaved that way. And I thought that was interesting. Kefka just did it for shits and giggles, and that's fine, every fairytale ever was written with a bad guy who was just a cunt because they needed adversity for the hero to overcome.

Those nunchuck things were cool.  I need to find my copy and finish it someday.
