You're getting two characters mixed up.

Hugo's friend is Lulu.

With the belts.

Luca Blight was his mom.

Shit. Whatevs. All he did was suck and die.

Though to save a little face, his mom's name was Luce, also not of the Luca Goers.

Anyway.

Saturn Bomberman - Got up to like level 6 then got a game over. Then I bot matched for awhile and the bots in this game are prone to some very odd behavior and still end up beating me. What I'm saying is I'm bad at Bomberman. Also I think the Roois/Louies/whatever are cuter than the rhinosauruses (spelling deliberate) in this one but whatever, still cute. Also I guess they level up.

Meanwhile, I'm trying to see if there were any interesting MegaDrive games worth importing before idk the ports close and globalization stops or w/e and the answer's basically sort of but most of them had better versions on the PCE or PC-98.

Could always just read the Suiko 3 Manga I guess. It's a pretty good adaptation.

Except for any part that involved Chris as she got femaled the hell up in that version (seriously, she spends a lot of page time waffling, waifing and sometimes acting like a petty bitch; whereas videogame Chris was navel gazing more because she's a skilled soldier who suddenly falls into the roles of military commander, national hero, figurehead and politician all at once and wanted basically none of it; especially since it came at the cost of Hugo's friend Luca (not that Luca) and homeland).

I've never played FE Gaiden, but I honestly wasn't a big fan of Shadow Dragon so I'm not sure I'd like this one either. SD was too faithful of a remake, I'd rather they'd have added more character stuff and redid some gameplay stuff like maybe adding Lord/Thief promotes and making it so that Marth isn't the only one able to visit villages.

I did appreciate some things about Shadow Dragon though. It introduced reclassing of course, and I actually rather liked the unrestricted nature of it in SD. Hard 5 is ridiculous but I actually prefer something like that over Maniac mode where everything has Vantage+ and such.

You don't have to worry about only Lords being able to visit Villages, since while that's still totally the case, Villages are entirely separate locations from Battlefields and thus doesn't require hauling Alm's or Celica's asses halfway across the map. Battlefields also contain no chests, locked doors or drawbridges and this game predates the Dancer class so nobody goes without at least one promotion unless they're already at their top class.

Also reclassing in New Mystery was less restrictive than Shadow Dragon's since a second playthrough unlocked the full reclass set (save Pegasus/Falcon Knights) for males (and females gained access to the General class to accommodate Sheema; though they were still denied Mercenary/Hero classes in spite of Malice's inclusion, she just got reclassed into a Myrmidon which is kinda ironic given how Narrave, the original Myrmidon archetype, was a Mercenary until the SD remake reclassed him into it; of course the reason why something like a Myrmidon class wasn't in the original was partly due to the dodge formula not being refined enough to support dodge heavy classes; and yet it gave us Clerics/Priests who could only level up through taking an axe to their face).

Plus they can't screw up stat caps as badly as they did in SD. So many Prepromotes became bench/gaiden fodder since their terrible growths weren't also adjusted to fill in the additional +4~10 points (unless your names were Sedgar or Wolf). (Unless they nerf the Angel Ring like they did with New Mystery's Star Orb Shards, which would make Gaiden's 40 caps unobtainable for every non-Villager/Mercenary/Hero character.)

That said, don't expect any high Resistance scores either (as nothing short of promotion gains actually influences them, and that includes character and class growth rates which topped out at a combined total of 0%).

PSP version has some differences that I felt improved the game substantially...so yeah, go for it.

Loving all the Chris praise here. If I ever replay Suiko3 it will be largely because of her character. Truly though, that is one of those games I'm happy to have played but can't imagine having the patience for again.

I had a substitute teacher mistake me for a student at work.  Considering I'm in my late 30s, that's flattering.  Yes, this sub was an older lady so everyone probably looks young to her, but still...

And I truly hope that the moment Trump reneges on his promises to the rust-belt working class that they revolt with the same fury that drove them to gamble their livelihoods on a casino owner.  I hope that once they're left high and dry, they do not gullibly buy into Trump's inevitable "false apology" bullshit rhetoric the way, say, Boxer bought into, "Napoleon is always right" maxim in Animal Farm.  And I assume we all know what happened to poor Boxer.

And I'm still in shock with his cabinet appointments.  Ben Carson, a surgeon, as head of HUD (Housing and Urban Development)?  You would think that a real-estate magnate would know a real-estate person to appoint to run HUD. 

People I know are already forming pools as to when they think Trump will quit the presidency once it stops being all fun and games for him.  Some are saying he'll abandon ship as soon as a year and a half in.

^ letting those in power know that the population is pissed IS an effective tool.  There are more plebs than patricians.

Any other opinion on the matter is a lie.
