Eh, I'm not a huge fan of Zidane/Dagger. It feels so middle schoolish most of the time, where they both pretend they don't like each other (Dagger is the worse of the two by far with this though) and the game gives you very occasional teases of their true feelings. There isn't even any belligerent tension that usually accommodates this type of romance. It's clear that they both like each other, but they just won't admit it.

Yeah to be honest I think I tend to like romances like that in fiction more than mature romance stories.

Not that I have any particular problems with the latter or anything, but I think on average that statement is probably true.

I mean, like I said, if you're gonna have it, you need some sort of sexual tension or at least a viable rival who could potentially steal one of them away, and FFIX has neither (no, Eiko doesn't count).

Oh Leon that reminds me. If you're ever in the mood for anime again I think you might like the currently airing Kaguya-Sama: Love is War. Maybe. Or maybe you'd think it's dumb idk. I think it's a pretty funny/cute romcom though and most people seem to be enjoying it a lot.

I often use a guide from the very beginning in visual novels lol. Sometimes I go blind my first time through, but this time I didn't even do that because I knew Steins;Gate had a reputation for being extremely complicated.

I actually wouldn't say I was a fan of some things about the very end, though everything leading up to it is fantastic. In particular, (Chaos;Child) I do not agree with the direction they took Sakuma's character.

So far the game is like pretty good but not a top tier VN of all time or something. Sitting at like a solid 8/10 I'd say. One thing I will give it credit for is that it's absurdly good at foreshadowing. I don't want to elaborate and turn this into a spoiler minefield, but yeah.

One of the neat changes the new Persona Dancing games made is being able to have multiple partners on the same song so you don't have redundancy with the Fever Time segments.

also every time Aigis says "I'm not done" it sounds like she's saying "I'm knocked up"

wow atlus going for a different genre huh

To shift back to anime for a second, to expand on Mob Psycho 100, my confidence index on you liking it is higher than it was with Eureka Seven but not quite as high as Steins;Gate. It's probably currently at the top of my rec list I think, but I totally forgot most of what was on it so I'd have to reform it to be sure lol.

Also think I heard AoT S3.2 is due for late April or something? So that's cool.

So I've played through all the songs once. Now I'm just trying to unlock all the Social Link events. Like P4D, the Platinum looks pretty easy, too, so I might go for it while I'm at it.

Also, I've gotta say that I don't think I like that they've basically made the P3 Protagonist into Narukami Lite in P3D. I don't feel like they should have the same personalities, but here, they essentially do. I think P3 Protagonist should be snarkier and a bit less enthusiastic.

Sometimes that shows up in the dialogue options during Social Link events, at least.

Most of these are pretty straightforward, but a couple of them could be pretty tricky (seeing all of Angel's lunchboxes seems like the toughest one).

Speaking of Platinums, P3D Platinum get!

Even easier than P4D's since there's no story mode to clear. I imagine P5D's trophy list will be pretty similar, so I should be able to get the Platinum there, too.

Yeah, the production values in the Frozen world are noticeably higher.

I don't know that I necessarily mind the mini-games. They just feel...lazy and uninspired, and nowhere is it more apparent than 100 Acre Wood.

Ace Attorney anime one hour special complete! That was a really solid adaptation, especially with Dahlia's characterization. They hit most of the high notes (although it could've used Mia's "I guess we know whose milkshake brings all the boys to the yard" line, but alas). The little teaser they added at the end was pretty cool. I liked that Turnabout Sisters remix, too.

I don't know what to think of that new OP though. It's...something else. That being said, I do like the new ED quite a bit.

Also, another anime exclusive episode is next? And it's a Pearl-centric one, too, so that's cool.

I thought they did a really good job with 3-1. Both Dahlia and Mia were fantastic. In the Japanese airing schedule they took a few weeks off before this episode. The extra time to work on the episode and having enough episode time to cover the case really helped out.

Went ahead and watched the Persona 5 anime OVA while I was at it. It did a pretty good job of following the events of the game, but I'll always wish it had taken more risks like the Persona 4 anime did.

But the OVA was still worth it for Rivers in the Desert.

All of this is making me want to replay all of Persona 4 though, the Arena games and P4D included. It's still the best.

dancing games were a mistake

Making slow but sure progress on Pillars of Eternity and really starting to enjoy myself with it. I really love the dialogue system and how your stats play a constant role in it. In most games there's just Charisma or Charm checks or whatever. Here damn near every stat comes up fairly frequently to give you different options. Out of the core stats: Strength, Intellect, Wisdom, and Charisma all come up frequently. And then there are 5 kinda "sub stats" that generally play more into gameplay/combat (like Mechanics letting you pick locks and disarm traps) but also play a role.

You also develop reputations for acting certain ways over time and it influences how you're treated by NPCs. There's 10 different "dispositions" like: Benevolent, Honest, Stoic, Aggressive, Cruel, etc. and they have ranks to so if you continually act Benevolent, for instance, it'll increase from Rank 1 to 2 and so on. My character has (among others) Honest as one of his dispositions and lately some NPCs have acted on that and said they trust me on some quests to do as asked and not try to double-cross them or anything.

Hell, you also develop reputations with towns/factions on top of all this!

it's all very cool

Yeah, I feel like all the games fall into that trap. Like, there were way too many remixes of Reach Out to the Truth and Pursuing My True Self in P4D. I just wish they'd do more battle themes instead of just saving them for DLCs.

Yeah, that's the worst part of the Pirates world. Not a fan of the altered moveset/magic either. It felt like spells were nerfed there but maybe that was just me.

also would keep mixing up ascend/descend controls

I feel like the underwater combat wasn't that bad because the enemies were pretty basic and the spells were pretty effective.

I think that's a bit why it was bad though.

Like it definitely worked better than kh1, but it was also more throwaway because it took away so many abilities from you. KH1 it didn't because there weren't a whole lot of gimmicks that could even be taken away from you.
