@Alisha, I put your post in spoiler tags for a damn reason. Don't edit it back.

Please feel free to be fast and loose with the spoiler tags in this thread.

Anyway, just defeated the boss that makes me question the sanity of whoever came up with the idea for the Despair status effect.
"It's like Doom except your death is in less turns that are unpredictable, and you lose SP. Oh, and the character can't act either"

A few other, more fun, observations:
-Ever since a Twitter post compared [REDACTED] to an Inkling from Splatoon, I cannot unsee it.
-Shujin academy has the weirdest curriculum of any Persona game I've played.
-It also has the most interpretive dress code, and that's saying something when you think of P4's characters. Then again, I can't really blame them when their shirts are that disgustingly drab grey. (Yes, I realize it's probably white that's been distorted by the game's bleak filter)
- @Kevadu Yusuke annoys me far more than Ryuji. I'm actually really not that huge a fan of the characters as a whole. They're starting to grow on me a little, but there's no way I'll be as sad to see their story end as I was at the end of P4.

I remember there being some numbered WA game that had tactical battles, with which people weren't quite as enamored, and I always got whatever that was mixed up with XF :S

Catbro and Hella MaoTales of Rebirth - About to enter Babilograd -- dungeon leading up to it looks like it's got some interesting... evil clouds (or perhaps a very abstract representation of bats. I think one of the bad guys is a vampire so) in it. Still not entirely sure how the groceries work in this. I think I just redeem tickets to change what ingredients they have in stock? Also judging from how the AI handles combat I should maybe try dodging along the... Y axis and not backstepping horizontally.

Shining Force 3 - Just did a mission here because ToR got Sakuraba on my mind :S Gonna swap out Ratchet for Hayward since the former's not got much in the way of good weapons right now, even if he DOES make a good meat shield. Also Masquerin's defense buff thing is a lot more useful than I realized. ALSO also never realized that Noon's sleep spell could be really useful for stunning an enemy long enough to let an underleveled character get a kill of of it without risk.

Goddess Paradise 2 - Basically San Andreas meets Princess Maker I guess???? <---- Okay maybe don't google image search for this, there was some like... marginally related, very NSFW tie-in cartoon.

Devil Children Black - Messed around in Marble Land for a bit and got stuck because Kuul is incapacitated so I can't ride him, and I didn't realize that you DIDN'T need to be riding him to jump DOWN cliffs.

Anyway I was gonna play around with Breath of Fire 4 for a bit but then a tax situation happened. The minorest tax situation I've had over the past three years, but a tax situation nonetheless. :))))))))))))))

Anyone try to e-file their taxes and have it fail because the adjusted gross income from the previous year didn't match, even though you gave the right amount..?

Oh god NOW it went through. Hopefully they have a record that it was originally transmitted on the 4th and I don't get charged a late fee for this.

@Arvis    I LOVED Wild ARMs XF.  http://www.rpgfan.com/reviews/wildarmsxf/index.html

It's been years since I played it, though, so the only tip I can really offer with my hazy memory is that you need to approach battles more like puzzles than fights.  The game doesn't go by "Final Fantasy Tactics" style rules, but does things its own askew way.

I think some aspects of my review will shed some insight on how this game is not your avreage SRPG.  You definitely have to think a little differently with this one.

Since we're all taking Gundam... anyone tried Build Fighter?
I totally skipped it back then because it wasn't a 'real' Gundam... but I am somewhat curious about it.
Opinions?

Build was actually a really good series due to having kick ass fights on a regular basis (since no pilots were killed/harmed/drama-bombed during the making of this showdown), in-series references, decent human beings for characters, and generally had a good time all around.

Build Try tried to be as good as Build 1. It failed.


Athrun goes full beta in Destiny until like 10 seconds before the end of the anime.
Although chicks dig betas in GSD apparently.

I watched up to episode 24 now, and Athrun seems to have morphed into some kind of harem anime protagonist. If I counted correctly, there are four girls trying to get into his pants. Okay, Cagalli probably got that far already, but even then there are three girls who (despite knowing he loves/is engaged to someone else) are really interested in some Athrun action. ... But I guess I can't blame them, considering their other options...

Meanwhile, the politicians remain very hungry for war. A few years ago, I'd have written this of as unrealistic, but looking at the current political climate... Real life is making this stupid big robot show look sane.

Cagulli wishes she was hiding out in Athrun's pants. Alas, she doesn't even get that bone thrown her way.

As for the rest of Athrun's harem
Spoiler: show
they're largely doomed to die for the Kira x Athrun ship, or failing that, get fridged hard.

so shido is basically trump? that palace kinda sickend me. some of the palace metaphors are spot on.

also i have an extremely hard suspending disbelief that mitsuru's persona users task force never shows up with the stuff going on in this game and how publicized it is.

So some old GHBs are now up. Nothing really to gain from Navarre in all honesty, but F. Robin is currently the only source of B. Tome breaker, so stocking up on some extras of her is nice.

To be fair, I don't think Mir knows that Athrun and Cagali are an item. Although Mir might think that Athrun and Lacus are still a thing? I know that at one point she is in the room for a conversation that mentions that Lacus and Kira are together (which I think occurs later in the series than episode 24), but I don't know if she was aware of that before that conversation.

As for the girls' other options, they could always go for Rey? I mean who wouldn't want some (probably) clone action? Shortened tellymers would mean they get to deal with him as an old man while they are still young. Who doesn't dream of that?...Hmm, bad example. They could go for Shi...I can't bring myself to finish that sentence. Umm Lesbianism? Crap they are sisters. Uhhh Heine! Oh wait you are past episode 23. Well at least he can live on in their hearts for he has left an impact in all of them....especially Athrun. Wait that just expanded Athrun's harem. Godamnit.

So Athrun's harem aside, what are your thoughts on the series overall now that you are about halfway through?
