      Steven, or Gladion... which would win?!

      But then Steel answers most everything on Gladion's team. :U

        Yeahhh, I don't find her nearly as interesting as Steven. I can't even name a single thing I know about Cynthia off the top of my head. :P Steven's got his fascination of rocks/excavating which is pretty adorable imo, his love for traveling, his connection to the huge Devon Corporation... etc. Far more quirks and background than 90% of game characters, at any rate.

        I agree, there is a lot of depth to him. I was so ecstatic to get Alpha Sapphire so I could see him again.

        Also, it's nice to hear from you. Has your vacation been well?

        Been back for a couple days. Still catching up on a lot, RIP. The vacation didn't go that well... Not that anything terrible happened, it just felt like a waste of time. My family seemed hyped over me visiting but didn't actually interact much with me while I was there. Hmm. :P

        Where? Hmm... I'd really like to see Hawaii, except with all this stuff happening with the volcano I'm not so sure. XD

        Eh, it's all about luck. It's, like, let's say there's this pegasus knight -- she gets a lot of speed, and if nothing else, her chance of getting it is so high that she'll always get it. Some games she'll get a lot of different stats, and some she'll just get speed. It's all about the RNG. I mean, you can reset the chapter if you didn't like the level up, but oftentimes you'll be halfway through it already.

        tl;dr, sometimes they just get unlucky.

        Heh, Hawaii is beautiful, though! Went to my aunt's wedding on Maui when I was 12 or so. Don't remember it much now, just have pics I took back then.

        Oh, okay, I get it now. I wonder why they did that mechanic... I think most people would rather enjoy getting to decide stats and whatnot manually, with an "automatic" feature if not...

        Maybe I'll consider it someday when it's not raining lava. :P

        They did it to make every game different - kind of like the IV and EV system with Pokemon, only if the end stats were entirely randomized. Why, in the new games, the stats are FIXED from beginning to end, meaning that you the game decides how they're going to end up and [b]keeps[/b] them that way.

        Believe it or not I prefer the old FE games to the new ones.

        EDIT: boldface fail

        Well I do own a 3DS, but its screen is damaged and it's been acting up lately. And as I said, the 3DS is obsolete, I have no plans of getting a new one, and the last thing I want to do is to pay for this pricey game and then have my console crap out. The SD card will still be fine, sure...

        I'm okay < not okay with emulated games, so that's fine. I was considering just watching a silent LP of it on Youtube tbh. Probably a blind, as there's not many people who would replay an AA game once they've solved the case unless they just wanted to enjoy it for the plot.

        Trials and Tribulations last case? It was pretty awesome; I loved Godot's part in all of it, but I thought the whole spirit channeling, swing her body over the bridge like a pendulum bit was a little random. It was clever the way they drew everything together, but to be honest by the time I was done I just sort of sat there and asked myself, "What just happened?"

        It got more lucid once Dahlia went back to being a ghost. Wait, what am I saying? No, that wasn't quite random, that was just slightly horrific. XD

        Ah, that stinks. :/ Well, I used to sell video games and consoles, and a used 2DS usually only went for about $30 or so if you can ever wanna take advantage of a deal like that. Better than dishing out full price for a now-obsolete system, anyway!

        Ohh, watching on YouTube is another good idea! I'm planning on doing that for The Great Ace Attorney, since I found a full LP and that's... not being localized, either. CAPCOM doesn't like us, apparently.

        Lol, I don't blame you. Ace Attorney never really needed/needs gimmicks like spirit channeling with its storytelling ability and characters, but there it is anyway... Godot was my favorite part about that case, though. The scene where it revealed his part in everything was one of the best I've seen.

        $30 dollars for something that sells for $120? Ouch! That's literally the price cut in three! >w<

        Yeah that bit really irritates me. I don't think it's CAPCOM as much as it's most Japanese gaming companies, which, unless I've missed my guess, would be all of them, seeing as there are no game companies based in America. (Besides Microsoft, maybe?) Eh, you might be right. XD

        Ahaha yeah, my favorite part was when a stream of blood ran down from Godot's wounded eyes. He never confirmed it, but he was crying, because he said in a prior case to Mia to "never cry until it's all over." Yep. In that moment a relatively flat character of mine was Godot-ized and to this day remains one of the most original I own.

        I honestly haven't explored any of his later solo stuff! I should check it out. I think he kept getting better over time. I really enjoyed People and Things a lot, has a lot of sentimental value for me since it came out when I was a senior in HS.

        I agree you should, but I'm biased. ;) It's definitely got more of a... pop feel, I guess, but it's still reminiscent of People and Things in a lot of ways. I'd recommend Synesthesia, So Close, and All Our Lives to start with. Those are always my faves.

      Hi, so I more or less took december off from forums and most of the internet (focus on the holidays and the 6 feet of snow), and just saw that I was nominated for the workshop awards, and was wondering if it is too late? I saw that it said 25th should've been the cut off, but I just wanted to check in and basically let people know I didn't die to a yeti.
