I will needlessly express my adoration for the VI cast. Some of my favorite characters in JRPG history are part of that roster, believe it or not! LoL

But seriously, I feel like the 6 cast is by far my favorite FF group by a landslide. I could attribute my love of that game to the soundtrack and cast entirely. I also give it a nod for doing a "dark world" better than I had ever seen to date when I first played the title.

However, the biggest draw of 6 (for me personally) was the amount of content for a game at that point in time. The title created the illusion that endless amounts of optional and secret pay-offs await the adventurous and ambitious player. To play that game back in the day and accidently "discover" Gogo, in a time when you didn't have the internet and knew nothing of the optional character was one of the most exciting moments of my childhood. Than of course, long discussion with other young aspiring-nerds ensued questioning Gogo's identity at the lunch table for days.

God I played Xenoblade so wrong!

I totally relied on Sharla for healing, controlled Dunban more then half the time because I'm way more a "Dunban" than I am a "Shulk", didn't figure out the finer points of crafting until late game and did damn near every sidequest I could as soon as they opened up. No wonder it took me 150 hours to complete.

EDIT: Looking back, I'm sort of amazed I finished it at all like that to be honest. The last dungeon areas and bosses took me FOREVER!! LoL

As I mentioned in my effort post, even the worst characters are functional enough to do things with. Sharla may be the least efficient member of your crew but she's still really useful in long protracted fights against enemies that do a lot of damage (usually some kind of really high level UM with some nasty gimmick that makes tanking it with your face hard to do). Its just that she can't do Combos all that well and those are unfortunately where the big money lies. At least, she'll be fairly useful until you get to the point where your skills and party affinity are high enough to properly pimp your Combo.


And speaking of Xenoblade, my god Shulk. In a game where every other fighter has a goddamn counter move to wreck faces with, your is absolutely sick nasty. And here I thought that it would be Little Mac that'd clear the 4 KO threshold of Cruel Smash. I'm still chugging along otherwise. Unlocking things along the way. But this is still the most dull and boring part of any Smash Bros. game. 100%-ing it.

After countless tries, I finally made it through Iron Passage and took out the boss there, but I'm pretty sure now the Fume Knight is beyond me, I just don't have the reflexes to dodge his attacks. Summoning doesn't help either, it boosts his defences so much that it takes forever to do any significant damage. Also, I seem to have inadvertently screwed myself over, making the fight even more difficult for myself:

Code:
There aren't enough smelter wedges to destroy every statue in Brume Tower, and if you don't save an extra one to use on the statues before the Fume Knight then he'll regenerate if he's near that statue.

XILLIA 2 POST GAME/ Grinding away. 2 elite monsters left, got enough to pay off my debt and making run after run through the EX dungeon. I really need to be done with this soon.

PSN SALE OF THE DEAD/ Bought Dante's inferno bundle for 5.99 because that is too cheap to not buy. I feel like an idiot when I do this. The game really doesn't look too much like anything I'd normally appreciate  but it may be the closest thing I can ever experience to God of War (and enjoy). Something about Kratos always made me feel a strong distaste for God of War. Then again I try to keep an open mind. I ended up with Borderlands 2 on whim thinking I'd hate it and fell head over heels so I try to remain optimistic with impulse purchases anymore.

The more I reflect on it, the more I realize I wasn't a huge fan of FFVI either. The game is far too easy, including the end-game content, Kefka is an extremely overrated villain with less of a character arc than even Sephiroth and no real motivation beyond "He's evil." Finally, while I appreciate the sentiment behind the idea of having so many characters and no one single "main character" it does kind of make it hard to become immersed in the cast.

Straight Edge? Where'd you get that idea?
I remember a while back you said something along the lines of you only enjoy 1 beer once in a while, and even then, it isn't that enjoyable. Ha! Hence, "pretty much" straight edge. Not that you go slapping beer bottles out of people's hands - lol. Obviously, I misconstrued your words.
I always forget to include wine when talking about alcohol. Mainly because I can't go anywhere near the stuff. Had a pretty horrible experience with a dirt cheap bottle of Ernest and Julio once... One time too many.

Oh, well. To each his own, right?
Damn skippy, my good man.

There are actually a lot of Square games that I like, I'm just, in general, /not/ fond of their SNES output. Final Fantasy 5 is probably my favorite of the bunch, though I do like SoM and CT (although again I think CT's kind of overrated a lot). But that's about the extent of it. Although if we're expanding Square to Square Enix... I didn't really like DQ5 or 6 in their original incarnations either.

It's more PSX-era Square I'm... still sort of obsessed with.

You didnt like FFVI? You are in the vastest of the vast minority on that one.  Curious.

Continuing off topic, as we all know Hollywood would thoroughly ruin a GitS adaptation. (It probably doesn't help that I don't particularly like SJ):

So you didn't like it because angry faced Jeremy Renner spent most of the movie making angry faces?? It was stupid because it was supposed to be stupid. Its over the top on purpose and if you actually get the joke its awesome. in fact, Renner and Gemma Arterton (the female lead in clash of the titans) have both gone on record a bunch of times about how much fun making it was. 

This.
Well, not Grim ultimately feeling insulted "this", but H&G being a fantastic film "this". I put up a glowing review before Grim's, and I stand by it. It was just fun as hell to watch. Over the top and delicious. Shouldn't be taken as anything more than that.
Now granted, Grim is pretty much straight edge, and I watched it through 420 vision. I'm sure that helped my enjoyment level a lot - lol. Even then, I know I'd still enjoy it without the haze.
Straight Edge? Where'd you get that idea? No 420 for me, but I certainly enjoy my wine and beer.
Like I said earlier, I know exactly what they were going for, and felt like they didn't accomplish it(along with hundreds of reviewers: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/hansel_and_gretel_witch_hunters/?search=hansel )
Yeah, I know, reviewers suck and stuff, but they are generally correct in the aggregate)
 I wanted to like it, as the material is right up my alley, but it just wasn't to be. At least Gemma is hot.
Oh, well. To each his own, right?
