    Thank you so much, I appreciate the concern!! I'm in the upstate so it's not too bad for us, we're finally feeling the effects just now. It's VERY windy and lots of rain, but we kept power so far so that's good haha.

    Are you doing okay up in NJ? I know there was some flash flooding and stuff going on up there, hopefully you haven't had any damage?

    Yeah I live in a no flood zone (I mean it's such a good zone that when hurricane Sandy hit us I still got no flooding) so the weather has been mostly fine here. Finally starting to feel like fall which is cool. Just feel down in the dumps myself in general.
    Hi! I noticed that you have changed your avatar and signature.

    Hello! Yep, I ended up moving to a different avatar and signature, but of the same character. I can't break free from my fondness for Koyo it seems haha.

    Lol. Am I correct to assume that Koyo is the main character?
    FinalArcadia
    FinalArcadia
    Actually he's not, the main character is named Kazuki. In fact, Koyo is actually a kind of weird case since he is missing for fairly large chunks of each show, but for the upcoming next series he'll probably be there the entire run for once haha.

    (also, sorry this is a late reply, I hadn't logged in for a week or so)
    You probably don't remember me.

    It has been awhile, hoping you're doing well.

    Hey. So that Super Robot Wars UX LP I mentioned just got through heavy Fafner plot, finishing off the TV series' plot. Pretty interesting how it was adapted. And the next update will be the start of the movie plot. Still need to watch it myself someday.

    Read(ing) the SRW Z LP, by the way? Aside, I heard Fafner was once considered for the Z series. Shame it didn't make it there, but it got two games at least.

    Hey, thanks for letting me know! I just finished rewatching the first series of Fafner like three weeks ago so that'd be a good time to see the LP and see how it got adapted compared to how the show was. Overall, how'd you like the plot from what you saw in that LP?

    Still working through the Z LP, very slowly haha. I've liked what I've read though, it's making me hungry for the Gundam Seed Blu-rays that are coming out next year. I also didn't know Big O was included in Z before starting to read it, and that's a show I was always interested in but never actually watched.

    Yeah, that Fafner got into two games is great, and hopefully it isn't the end for it since Exodus could still get thrown into one, and maybe The Beyond once that finally releases someday (I sure hope it's a new show and not a movie, though I take what I can get at this point haha).

    Am liking what I see of Fafner in UX. That said with how much SRW adapts plots, not sure how much is applicable to the series, heh. Like I'm pretty sure Mamoru doesn't die in canon anything like how he dies in UX, or Kurusu going through a bunch of development because of witnessing Linebarrels Manga stuff.

    Oh, that's interesting. Might use those as an excuse to take a look at Seed. And yeah, Big O being in - in the whole Z series actually - is pretty interesting. Especially considering it was more popular in the west than anything. Too bad it as a series got cut short, leaving it on an ending that was never followed up on.

    I expect/hope that Fafner will get its next shot whenever the series does their next big trilogy.
    FinalArcadia
    FinalArcadia
    Sorry this is so late, I haven't signed in for like a week! I'm going to have to take a look to see what happens with Kurusu in particular, since he doesn't really get much development at all in Heaven & Earth beyond being the "good" Festum so to speak.

    Ahh, I'd always assumed The Big O was one of those things that would be more popular outside Japan given the artstyle of it, but I didn't know it got cut short! Was the second season that Adult Swim or Toonami helped fund still not a total ending? Or I might be thinking of a different show they helped fund another season of haha.

    Fafner - The Beyond - is actually finally getting more information about it revealed on August 18, so I'm pretty excited about that! With it getting something new (presumably soon), that'd be great for more content they could adapt in SRW eventually.
    Have you seen the new Kingdom Hearts III trailers? O_O

    So many trailers, so much information! Seeing Aqua like that was the most shocking thing, but it was also so nice to finally see Kairi in KH3! I can't get over how amazing this game looks, like the Tangled and Frozen worlds are so much like their movies it's almost scary haha. For a second with the Pirates of the Caribbean trailer though, I got my hopes up for Treasure Planet. Oh well, maybe next time... What'd you think of all the trailers?
    Kharixi
    Kharixi
    I'm juiced up on the hype! There's so much content just from the trailers I wanna dive into. I'm glad to see Larxene is back! And Roxas!... for some reason. And yeah, that Aqua thing really got me. Quite a twist! Speaking of, it's crazy that the Riku Replica is back (or at least that's what I presume he is). And this game looks so amazing... Honestly, with all this, I'm actually more okay with the delay (as salty as I was when I first heard about it), because at least it's yet more quality they're working on.
    Also, Don't Think Twice is so beautiful. ;_;
    FinalArcadia
    FinalArcadia
    Larxene was such a cool antagonist with her sass, it is nice to see her back in action. Yeah, seeing Riku there sitting by the Riku Replica is very intriguing, it'll be interesting to see where they go with him. That scene also really hit home how good Riku's new look is too haha. The wait looks like it will be worth it, honestly the game looks even better every time there's a new trailer which is a good sign! I agree about Don't Think Twice; at first I wasn't sure how I felt about it since it's a little slower than the other themes, but it's really grown on me for how emotional it sounds.
    So I finally had some free time at work today and I jumped on facebook and on there I saw the official announcement for the new games you'd mentioned two weeks ago. Honestly when I first heard of them I thought it was a throwback to Yellow. It's a bit odd to me to see a console version of Go honestly.

    Yeah I won't deny that at all. Games feel a lot more fluent on them. I admit loading times for some games seem atrocious but that feels like it comes as a cost to games running better so I was always okay with that.

    What no way. I mean anytime I've ever talked to you these last 6 years you've always seemed to be filled with life and plenty good spirits. I won't believe you're any bitter.
    FinalArcadia
    FinalArcadia
    Load times are definitely better now in general thanks to installing them, but boy do they take up so much space like that now. After playing Sonic 2006 many times though, I think I got desensitized to load times haha.

    Aww, thanks!! I don't know if I've ever imagined I'd be described as filled with life, but I appreciate it! But you don't fit bitter old man either since I've always thought you were very thoughtful and so chill and reasonable. We might not be able to deny the old part though haha.

    I'm pretty good at shrugging off loading times now but still those initial loading screens when first starting a game haha. Some of those I have time to completely make up a cup.of coffee.

    Well when's the last time we really sat down and talked about life? I bet I could convince you I'm bitter! Not you though, all joking aside I've always seen you as nothing but very sweet so. But yes we are both definitely old folks, we can agree on that one.
    Nice Fafner avatar/title.

    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.
    FinalArcadia
    FinalArcadia
    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!
    System Error
    System Error
    Indeed. Probably why Kamille and Shinn become friends in the Z series. And yeah, Shinn is especially a change of pace from Kira.

    I personally tend to lean towards Mamoru. It's easier to use Triple Dock than Junior Cross Dock, the latter being outright unusable if you're using Zero Fafner. Hiroto does have the Valor spirit (double damage on next attack) making him a bit more self-sufficient since Mamoru's is bundled into the overly expensive Courage, but Mamoru also has Exhaust which can cripple bosses. Just a playstyle thing on my part though. Shame they don't actually let you use Goubine and Great Goubine together, as they joke. A double Goubine smash would've be amazing to see.

    And yeah, re:Michio. The Mark Ein is such a downgrade from his previous machine gameplay wise. Least you can still use him in the Crossing System Katamari to boost his and everyone's stats.

    Just need to do a mini analysis of several of the more accessible SRWs for that. Key point being actually doing so.
    I'll respond to the full conversation of course when I can get 20 free minutes but until then...

    Happy birthday! From one sinister gemini to another I wish you the happiest (or evilist) of birthdays! I do seriously hope it is a great day cause you deserve it.

    Hey, I like Final Fantasy myself, though I don't play it as much. Perhaps I could do fanfics based on each game (that I have played anyway).

    By the way, I have noticed you around and wondering, what game/anime are you avatar and signature from?

    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!
