        That makes sense, being able to enjoy the plot in peace after having played through it already! Totally agree with you about Shinn, it's weird how much his character seemed to really bother people. Lots of flaws, but that was actually what made him interesting to me, and that poor kid really needed someone as a mentor or something (and Athrun didn't work out there). I'll probably start reading through some of Z tonight!

        Aww, I was hoping there might be a plot divergence there that let him show up in a human form rather than just the Mark Vier's core for the Heaven & Earth section, but as the Mark Vier is all right too. Thanks, I've got that site bookmarked now; saving Michio in particular sounds great!

        That's pretty cool that Mamoru gets the chance to do something neat like that attack even though he canonically couldn't be there for the movie! Stuff like that makes me hope that Fafner Exodus gets to be in a new SRW game (especially with them having official English translations for the Asia market).

        By the way, which SRW game do you think is the best overall, like regardless of which franchises are included in it?

        Hope you have fun reading the Z LP. And yeah, not sure why people dislike Shinn so much, maybe it's wanting idealistic protagonists or more likely just anti-SEED stigma. Really, a lot of protagonists could've ended up like Shinn, but they had support where he didn't. Kinda feel the ones that stand out are more interesting myself, like him, or Asemu to some extent.

        Yeah, for sure. Would love to see more Fafner in SRW, especially given Exodus. And yeah, it's always neat when SRW breaks canon and works characters into works further along the timeline. Only problem with Mamoru is that there's only one Mark Funf, so you have to choose between him and Hiroto. I just wish Michio's mechs were better in UX, I like the guy but he's best at the start of stages. Or in the Linebarrels manga finale.

        Best SRW game overall...that's a tough one. Many of them have at least one issue that sticks out, so I'll have to think about that one.

        Thanks! Yeah, both of those seem pretty likely, the anti-SEED thing thankfully seems to be lessening as the years go on I've noticed in parts of the Gundam fanbase. More for SEED itself and not so much Destiny, but anything helps. Protags like Kamille in particular I think could've ended up more like Shinn. Shinn also had Durandal and Rey who weren't exactly helping him out emotionally either haha. He was a nice change of pace though, especially from his immediate predecessor Kira.

        Ah, that's a tough call then between Mamoru and Hiroto since I like Hiroto more as a character. Is one of them particularly more useful as a pilot? As least Michio doesn't have any one that he conflicts with for a mech, though that's a shame he isn't better off. at least I assume since I don't remember anyone else in the Mark Ein.

        Gotcha, if you ever decide on one, I'll be interested to hear it!

        Zero was just put on a bad console. The Switch has been remaking all the most popular Wii U games for maximum exposure, so who knows. Maybe they'll finally make a sequel to the series, and, here's hoping, F-Zero someday.

        Also... AHH, INTERLOPER!

        I gotcha, being on your own doesn’t mean not wanting company at times. Oh wow, you and I are on the same page about temperature haha. If it were up to me, the only seasons would be Fall and Winter so the weather was cool. What’s the weather like for you now? Down here in SC, it was actually fairly nice for longer than usual, but now it’s in the 90s in the day and yuck; hopefully no heat waves up there for you?

        Gen 2 in particular felt so cohesive with the Johto region, and the way Mt. Coronet was so pervasive in Sinnoh was neat. Ahh, the classic hoarding in RPGs haha. Yeah, busting out a TM was for desperate measures back then lol. Honestly, I don’t even use Mega Evolution or Z-moves in the newer games. Something about them I just… have never really warmed up to, I dunno. Some of the Mega forms do look cool, though. The simpler times were nice, sometimes I wonder if things are a little bloated now with stuff like the Z-moves.

        That’s a good point to test the waters first with a remake. As much as I really liked XY, I see what you mean about it, and honestly Game Freak isn’t exactly the best at making sure things run super well and optimized to begin with (S/M immediately comes to mind). One thing that makes me kind of nervous about a new gen on Switch is if the games won’t look much better than S/M did on the 3DS. Like, less low-res and better textures, but still pretty much the same look. I hope the player character at least has more expressions than “soulless smile” like in S/M at least haha.

        Of course. Sometimes company is good, and sometimes I just want to wear headphones and ignore the world haha. I also wouldn't mind early Spring but up here the last few years we kinda want from a long winter to early summer with no spring at all haha. I'd be happy with just fall and winter. Today was 90 and we've had a few days of it ever here and there. No heatwave yet just was a 3 days stretch of hot too. We have to get a new ac unit so hope the heat holds out here til we get it.

        Yeah the layout of Gen 2 worked amazingly. Like yeah sure it sucked how some routes were short but this was still the same general system that the Gen 1 games were on so it couldn't hold as much info as games now so. I mean I'd use the TMs in Gen 1 at least since you couldn't only hold a few items until 2 made TMs a separate spot then I honestly tried not to use the moves you only got once until TMs became reusable. I can understand that. They haven't warmed up that much to me either. Sometimes I'd use a mega for stuff like the battle mansion but beyond that eh. It does seem like a bit much now but I can also understand their view point in always needing to update the games and add more features.

        I mean with what the Switch can do, being comparable to current gen systems like the PS4 and Xbox one I don't see them doing that with a new gen on the Switch. I mean I don't think they can get away with it honestly. If they don't use the Switch to a better potential well with how iffy the last 2 Gens were I'm sure they'd lose a good amount of fans. Not enough to end things but yeah.

        Ouch, going straight from winter to summer weather sounds rough. Though that seems to be happening in several places, makes me worry about global warming stuff honestly. Oh man though, it's even 90 in NJ? The beach-goers will love it, but that sucks for you. Yeah, I hope it doesn't get too hot while you wait for a new AC, that'd be miserable!

        Sometimes the small routes were kind of nice for convenience-sake if you didn't want to carry around a Pokemon for Fly haha. Same here, in gen 2 I mainly only taught TMs you could rebuy... and Shadow Ball. It's too cool not to give to someone lol. Yeah, it makes sense to keep introducing stuff to try to keep some freshness. And there is some practicality to it too since I'm sure stuff like Mega evolutions is less work than a brand-new Pokemon, in a series where there are so many already that adding more on top must get rough.

        I sure hope you're right about that lol. Have you seen that rumor about the Let's Go! Pikachu and Let's Go! Eevee titles and stuff? If those are true, combined with a "leaked" screenshot of Lapras a while back, it's starting to seem like the games really might just look like a slightly upgraded version of S/M though. It's such a weird name for a main series game though that maybe it's not true, but then we have a trademark by Nintendo for those titles... Official news can't come soon enough haha!

        I've been playing Danganronpa V3 on PS4 trying to get the trophies, and on Switch I play a lot of Splatoon 2 and some LoZ: Breath of the Wild (probably my 2nd favorite Zelda game now, at least in the top 3).

        Both the Switch and PS4 are great, I get a lot of use out of both and they fit different gaming needs. PS4 has a ton of games by this point (plus PS1 and PS2 classics), so I think it's a good choice if you're leaning toward it!

        Oof, that would make for a long game, especially if they'd be individual stories kind of like DDD... which would be a really neat way to expand this game even more.

        Something else neat would be the Paopu fruit finally being brought up again, it's basically vanished from existence save for Kairi's keepsake. I kind of thought the destinies being intertwined thing was a cool idea, so addressing it might be a good idea (especially if Kairi does end up being playable).

        Which is also weird because they HD upgraded DDD, so you would think they would be able to do it with 358 as well.

        Oh, and what about your favorite game story-wise? Personally I really like KHII and Birth by Sleep.

        I would LOVE individual stories again, though based on the trailers it looks like that isn't the case in III. But it's always fun being able to play as other characters even if it's just for a little bit!

        Oh man, I actually completely forgot about the Paopu fruit lol. If Kairi is playable, that really would be a perfect reason for it to be brought up again and relevant, and it would be a nice way to bring things full circle from KH1 when they all had the fruit.

        That... is true, it really is weird haha. Poor 358/2 Days, maybe someday it can get a true HD upgrade. Probably not for a long time though...

        I would have to go with the first Kingdom Hearts, even if it is more basic in scope than the later games! There's just something about the story I really enjoy, like the conflict between Riku and Sora, Maleficent having her most sizable role as a villain, that great scene when Sora became a Heartless... II and BBS have strong stories as well, BBS would probably be my 3rd favorite, especially since I like Aqua a lot and it is easy to sympathize with all three of the main characters. ;_;

        Roxas didn't last long enough in II, tho'... I mean, it makes sense and all, but you hardly get to play as him. It's too bad that he couldn't adventure for a while on his own and then return to Sora or whatever.

        Well, since KHII is the last game of the "Dark Seeker Saga" or whatever, it'd make sense to end it on the note of Sora and Kairi's destinies being entwined no matter what follows.

        I mostly like II (and Naminé and Roxas) because I'm really into Nobodies. Just... everything. They don't have emotions, they just remember what it was like, they have no hearts, yet they can get hearts... Plus, the connections Sora has gives us "Ventus 2.0" instead of "Sora 2.0", which I think is really neat.

        I'm curious about his and Mickey's new outfits - we've only gotten a hint from DDD so far (I haven't really seen any KHIII trailers but I know most of the content going into it at this point).

        I didn't think of that, so I guess we're even! Makes me wonder what Sora would turn into, tho'—he's gone generic merman and lion, so... maybe a rabbit? lol rabbit Sora would be hilarious.

        Hades is really the only reason I don't actually mind Olympus over and over. He's super fun and his English actor is awesome at capturing the perfect voice for his lines.

        Yeah, it's exciting to see the new outfits for the main cast! I personally would like to see Riku's hair a little longer than in DDD (maybe like KH1 style), but all of his outfits have been good so I'm sure that will work no matter what he wears. We haven't seen Kairi either, right? I wonder what she'll look like, and what her role will be.

        Rabbit would kind of suit him I think, very bouncy to fit his personality lol. I guess Donald and Goofy would stay the same animals, just designed to fit the Zootopia artstyle better.

        Agreed there, he's always entertaining! His English voice is perfect, though I was impressed with his Japanese voice actor too since he sounded a lot like James Woods, it was really great casting. At least Olympus Coliseum also usually incorporates a Final Fantasy character, which is nice to see who shows up. I wonder if we'll see any more of Zack in KH3...

        I have seen some art (dunno if it's official or not) of a sort of hooded look for her. Kind of an interesting choice if it's legit.

        Any speculation on the other playable character? I'm wondering if it's going to be a new one or not.

        Honestly, I'd like to know what happened to Selphie. She was in like two cutscenes in KHII but then just sort of... vanished...

        For some reason, I expected more shake-ups to the usual chapter pattern, so I was somewhat surprised by there being 2 again in chapter 3, though once the seance started I was like "oh no." Yeah, the lipstick... I still liked him after all that, though I tend to downplay that bit since he was so chill and interesting before that. One of the smarter characters in general minus "lol seesaw." I actually did like the victim though. The first victim of that chapter on the other hand... not so much.

        I wish the Necronomicon had actually been more relevant in that chapter... what would have happened if the ritual went through? What would Monokuma have done?

        Come to think of it, you're right! Chapter 5 I'd argue is the strongest chapter of each game. Even knowing what all happens obviously by now, I still enjoy the mystery of "who is this?" in the first game's chapter 5.

        Kaito was also the one who was meanest to Kokichi, so that didn't help his case lol... I also like Maki when I ignore her shippy stuff with Kaito, so I also fault him for that. I see the appeal with her being cute, but I didn't like Himiko at all and she was my least favorite from V3 since I don't even feel like she did much despite being there so long. Every time Miu called her donkey lips, I laughed because I was like, "yes, ROAST HER.".......I also....... actually like Hagakure........ he's at least entertaining, though given certain aspects of his personality, I do understand why he's not popular. I dunno, I think his English voice acting helps, it really sells him to me. I like most all of the English dub better for the series, minus the anime which had a garbage Monokuma voice.

        Cospox still confuses me when thinking about the reveals from the late game... Yeah, Tsumugi was definitely less obvious of a gimmick since it is a bit more subtle than people like Miu. Miu was definitely entertaining though, I loved some of her lines. I'm like a child, but "Poo-ichi" for Shuichi cracks me up even now.

        NOOOOO but it is so fun once you get immersed in it... I didn't expect to love BotW as much as a I do, but it really makes me feel like I'm on a journey in beautiful Hyrule. Yeah, I also played quite a bit of Mario Odyssey and I think it's a good game, but it's not one I'm super attached to either. I had fun, but I don't see myself going back to it, and I still prefer Super Mario 64 for 3D Mario games. Of course, my Mario fan-ness is mainly for Paper Mario rather than the regular Mario games anyway.

        OHHHH-kaay I never expected there would be any heart eating or anything to that degree in that game, even if it's not shown on-screen lol. It definitely must get more serious than I had assumed from the way the game looks... I think most JRPGs tend to have somewhat slow openings, so that makes sense that it picks up significantly after the early chapters.

        I don't think I remember seeing Melia's brother, unless he was that one cool guy who taught Shulk something in the forest place (where the Nopon Village is) about the auras or something. It's been months, I can't remember his name, but he was cool.

        Omg, YES, someone who agrees with me that FFXII's music isn't good!! People seem to love the soundtrack, but I honestly think it's the worst of the main series FF games, even including the NES ones. It's so dull...... But yeah, Vaan is a very strange MC because all he has is "I love airships" and "I'm angry at the empire because my brother died." I think it helps to think of him as a viewpoint character rather than the main one since you could absolutely make a case for Ashe being the true MC (or maybe even Balthier or Basch, but I think Ashe moreso), but it doesn't save Vaan from being a tag-along to the story.

        It makes sense with the scuba thing, but it was the legs and feet that really bothered me with his design lol. Sora I don't mind since it fits the Disney aesthetic, but I guess I just have a hard time transitioning from Shulk to Rex. Lol, yeah, the customization was a double-edged sword in deciding on style vs functionality in XC1.

        Ah, I could see that about Riki too, though I would've expected Dunban to have some notable progression since he seems so important and mentor-y. Reyn... he has some good stuff with Sharla, though I could see him not getting much development either.

        Hmm, seeing his love backfire does sound interesting. I do see the appeal in a character like that who is very optimistic and loving compared to how many JRPG protags tend to be. He sounds very cinnamon roll-ish!

        Hmm, I see what you mean about the reliance on Shulk because of the Monado. Shulk's voice though... he could do anything and I'd be like "mmm sure" just because his voice acting was SO GOOD lmao... Nice to know the heart-to-hearts are easier to see, is it easier to build affinity between characters? Sometimes I felt like I'd have two characters in the party together FOREVER in XC1 and do the right timing in battle and still make no progress.

        I gotcha there. Sometimes a flawed game can be overcome if it does well enough at making the player care. And for a JRPG, story and character are like the most important thing to get invested in, so doing that makes a HUGE difference.

        That sounds so weird to imagine a XC1 scene redone in 2's style... Maybe the next game will be a follow-up to XCX then?

        Oh, I hadn't heard about their new project! Medieval fantasy RPG sounds promising coming from them, particularly if it keeps up their open world style of games.

        That's a very pretty song, the violins give it a very beautiful-but-melancholy feel! Is Yoko Shimomura involved in this game too? I can't tell if that's her work or not.

        The seance was creepy, it was probably one of the most gripping moments in the game. I... don't get the seesaw meme at all. Like, there's literally nothing about it that is in any way humorous.

        The Necronomicon has two/three ways I could think of for it to make sense and for Monokuma to use. Cloning, memory adjustments about the person, or virtual world? (also, I know you wanted it to be used so the person who hadn't killed anyone at that point could come back ;) )

        Chapter 5s are the chapters when the cast feels very empty compared to the original size. It's when things are much more on edge.

        Maki being shipped with Kaito is to give justification to Kaito agreeing to carry out that complex plan. I don't feel anything for the ship... The writing is there, but I just don't the drama if I'm not invested in it. Just not up to my tastes.

        I still plan on getting to BotW, but I'm not feeling hungry for it. Maybe later...? Ever since I played all of the Tellius Saga I've been meaning to getting to FINALLY starting Skies of Arcadia, but I got the Switch a few months after and FE Warriors took away all my attention. I can't wait to play the Shadow Dragon DLC this month! I could care less about Minerva, bUT NAVARRE AND LINDEEEE should be a blast!

        The white-haired guy you saw with Shulk was Alvis, which means you haven't made it to the capitol (?) of Melia's race. He's very important.

        FFXII's tracks are just not up to my tastes. I thought the tracks were lifeless and generic... uninteresting too. Balthier was very cool!

        Well, considering that the big legs make sense for Rex to have more weight on the surface he gets on, their practicality made sense to me. Unless you mean how they 're showing? I didn't really mind.

        I went over the Chapter 1 scenes of the game again, this time with the Japanese dub, and it's so weird seeing the characters be... so undeveloped and "immature".

        LMAO, yeah... Shulk's voice... I agree it was very nice to listen to! Shulk's sexy voice and swimsuit in Smash definitely helped XC's popularity. There is no affinity between party members, but with party members and their blades. It's actually easier if you just grind it by feeding them food. There are H2H's with just party members and not blades, but those just require the party members themselves to be engaged.

        Yoko Shimomura didn't do work on the game, but other composers who worked on the original are back for XC2. From my special edition, the tracks I like the most are from Kenji Hiramatsu and a lot people seem to like the same three tracks which they put in it too. (Battle!!, Counterattack, Mor Ardain -Roaming Wastes-).

        If you ever get hungry for a 100 hour JRPG (though it's around 60 hours if you do mainly story, maybe even less) it was well worth it, imo!

        The role creation specifically for this game (like the abilities) or the process in general?

        Sometimes it helped me to write out any fitting kind of ability I could think of for each character in the game and start settling on some that really fit, then work out the rest based on what roles the game needed for balance. BUT I also hosted Gundam Seed mafia that wasn't exactly balanced so I'm definitely no expert there haha.

        And I did do that already, but currently stuck on a few of them. Shall we discuss this via Conversation tomorrow?

        That's cool! I'm very interested in the series too, I can't say I love it like the previous series so far, but it feels very "isolated" in how it's mostly about Yusaku's quest and how all duels have him involved. It will probably open up, and Revolver and Blue Angel could become allies with how their type of characters stick with the main character. Link Summoning is easier than I thought it would be. I love both Opening and Ending themes, though I skip the Ending because I'm too excited to see the preview, lol...

        It's okay! They are just my thoughts. Maybe you could check your model and see a video online that could help in how you need to remove the dust?

        Seeing how it will open up should be interesting, since YGO series tend to suddenly take things to a huge scale with world-affecting stakes in the latter half (though I guess 5D's got to that point fast with the Dark Signers happening fairly early). Blue Angel seems like a good female characters from what I've seen, it's just weird how... normal her "real" look is lol.

        It looks like for this HP model, the fan is behind the motherboard and requires disconnecting things to get to it. I can't really work up the nerve to do that myself haha, and my mom says she'd try but I'm kinda afraid to let her do that since she isn't exactly computer-savvy either. Probably going to have to take it to a shop and just pay the fee, though I keep putting it off because I hate to do that lol...

        Her normal hair was once the same/similar hairstyle as Blue Angel's, but just brown.

        Yeah, I understand the fear of having to pay fees and postphoning it. I sent my phone for repairs once I found a good enough price but I need to wait a while, and then pay for the expenses to collect it. Maybe you could prepare yourself better by just giving it to them?

        I once sent a PM saying my goal was to cut to 75kg by the 15th of September at most, and... I did it a week and a half ago! Everyone is telling me to stop losing weight, which is a shocker because it's the complete opposite of the vibe I got before. I won't be less than 68kg for sure though, that's my next goal before I finally bulk. Feasts are ending here so no more guilty meals for a while...

        Slowly, aha. I'm on Act Three approaching the end, but I've stopped to grind Celica's group (with the DLC) until I can promote everyone

        Same for me, he and Faye are my best units on Alm's side. I made him a mage and Faye cleric. And yep, he looks nice and the snark is great. ^^

        Oh, we're roughly in the same spot then! I'm in about mid-Act 3.

        Cleric Faye definitely seems appealing with her spell list! I went with Pegasus Knight since her STR was the highest of the team and I couldn't bring myself to make her a healer with that haha. Kliff seems like he'd make a great mage too with his speed. He's been a great archer, so maybe he just works in any class lol.

        Nice! Grinding is slow tho, so you'll probably pull ahead, aha.

        Yup! That was the main reason I picked it over Mage, I considered Pegasus Knight, but I was worried about archers. Yeah, the villagers seem to have stat growths tailored to specific classes, but Kliff and Faye are just too good to be restricted to one choice lol.

    A longtime Pokemon fan who started playing in kindergarten... and I'm now a college graduate. Pokemon Yellow was my first game in the series - followed closely by Blue - and as such it holds a special place in my heart. That said, my favorite generation is II.

    Top 5 favorite main series games:
    1) HeartGold
    2) Crystal
    3) Yellow
    4) Platinum
    5) Y

    I also like a lot of the side/spin-off games, particularly the Stadium games, Snap, Conquest, and Puzzle League. I'm in the minority of fans who do not like Colosseum; it literally put me to sleep and I like my adventures in the Pokemon world to be on handhelds. Colosseum did have a killer soundtrack though, I'll give it that.

    Other things I like:
    Gundam (Seed, 00, IBO especially)
    Skies of Arcadia
    Sonic the Hedgehog
    Final Fantasy (Tactics Advance, Type-0, IV, VII, IX, X, X-2, XIII, XIII-2, XV most)
    Fire Emblem (Sacred Stones and Shadow of Valentia especially)
    Kingdom Hearts
    Fafner in the Azure/Soukyuu no Fafner
    Splatoon
    Danganronpa
    Harvest Moon
    Star Fox
    Paper Mario (the good ones, so all of them minus Sticker Star; I actually really like Color Splash though)
    Castlevania
    Yu-Gi-Oh! (especially GX, but also 5D's, season 1 of Zexal, and VRAINS)
    ...and much more.

    Skies of Arcadia: Legends is my #1 favorite game and I hold it very near and dear to my heart. If you also like it, you're automatically trustworthy in my book.
