Man, my HP sucks. I've got less HP than a Prinny and on a higher level too. And looking at the rest of my stats in that pic, a stiff breeze will probably ruin my day.
That said, thanks for the gesture Klyde. It's better than what I've got from either of Annubis's RPFFans so far....
Don't be fooled sir. Your utility would have come by way of your high movement capability which is incredibly relevant in the post game grind.
Now I say "Would have" because as stated, I will not be following through with this as originally planned. Dice praise of BoF4 got me curious last night and I can safely say I am choosing to make that my next focus.
I am the saddened that I was not deemed worthy to be in Klyde's team. :(
DAMMIT! There were more additions to come!!!! I SWEAR IT!!
Good thing I chose to move on with Breath of Fire 4 instead. Far "safer" to discuss as I could only re-name Ryu and (as far as I know) I'm the only one here with blue hair! LoL
Now on the Breath of Fire 4 note. I can't imagine why I passed this up when I was 15 and it came out. I only put in 5 hours but there is already quite a bit to appreciate. I DO wish the kept a world map ala BoF3 though. This map (if you can call it that) is pathetic. Which is really sucky/odd considering the time obviously spent on the aesthetic of the environments. A cut corner in design perhaps?
What I can say design wise is that, while it feels far removed from the past Breath of Fire titles in terms of atmosphere, the title has truly come into its own as Capcom-tastically pretty. This is cool for me, as I have really only appreciated this art style at somewhat of a distance in Mega Man titles and Street Fighter (neither of which are really up my alley). I'm actually very excited to simply progress and see more dungeon/town/environments.
One last cool note. I had been jogging to a soundtrack I randomly acquired but never identified for a long time. It got lumped in with a bunch of other J-Rock and gaming tunes that I compliled into a playlist. I now know the origin of that soundtrack!!!! (Breath of Fire 4, if you hadn't pieced it together yet..) So the tunes immediately resonated with me as soon as I turned it on.
CHARACTER LOVE/ I typically hate the "robot" arch type characters but something about Ershin is really cool. The sort of schizo-third-person-gender-specific-sentience elevates her beyond a typical bot in my book. It also helps that I find her a bit easier to navigate with while dashing using the analog.
EDIT: I just admit I'm nearly 30 years old with blue hair. Somehow, this seems pathetic and sad in some sense to me. But truth be told, the fact that I draw pretty pictures on skin for a living keeps me feeling and believing I never really grew up for some reason.
