Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I played through half of Growlanser 2. I may return, but in the interim I've been distracted by playing Skyrim for the Switch. (I am committed to seeing my Orc Hammerwielder Miranda through.) I've also been playing Into the Breach. From the developers of FTL, it indeed feels like a turn-based tile s...

Re: I visit this site once and a while because...

I came here from AOL (Althena's Court), and never did more than lurk at the Shrine of Ghaleon and WDMB.

I did post at lunareb.com, but only briefly and after I had already been active here.

Re: What's your favorite turn-based NON-Lunar RPG?

I hate picking favorites. Certainly, I can't pick a single one. That would be a whim of the moment, since there are a few games in the specified category that I frequently turn to for happy memories, for solace, for inspiration, or for rumination. So gut check time: what comes up? Chrono Cross is on...

Re: Least favorite Lunar 1 or Lunar 2 character

^ I really hope there's a source for that. Like, peeing on Mel? Is that juvenile writing or a fairly plausible thing for a rascal kid to do? Kyle never had much of a development character-wise in the story in seemingly any of it's iterations which is really unfortunate. My own disclaimer: as an Engl...

Re: Jess's Mom

^ See, on the one hand I've thought that explanation as well, that Nash was looking for either Luna or Quark, and that Ghaleon needed to find Quark in order to be able to act. On the other hand, why wouldn't Ghaleon already know (generally) where Quark was? Something about that trip feels like an ex...

Re: Song of the moment

They Might Be Giants' album I Like Fun. Specifically Last Wave. Despite the bluntness of the lyrics, I find it to be a motivating song.

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

MaroonChan, that's at least the fourth time in a row you've been playing that game. What's going on?

Still playing Avernum 3. I'm just over halfway through now, judging by the map.

On a whim I also got the tabletop game Dairyman. It's a quick little die-rolling game like Farkle.

Re: What is a good job?

Regarding jobs, it's useful to keep in mind that any field will probably demand some hard skills and some soft skills, and hiring managers like that you have at least one of a few soft skills or qualities: communication, leadership, analysis, integrity, and responsibility. (Those are also useful for...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I finally finished XC2. It was a good game, though I realized while playing it that I'd be happier with fewer cutscenes or cutscenes that were more varied in their film-making approaches. The heavy reliance on cutscenes towards the end made me wish I were playing the game that had been fun up to the...

Re: I visit this site once and a while because...

I'd say it's toxic to make a post where you attack other members of the forum, representing others as "fringe" and in a "bubble" or "clique." That's a kind of passive aggression that's equivalent to a person claiming they want no drama but then causing drama in how they...

^ lol, okay, Yoda's a good counterpoint there. In Episode 5 Luke describes looking for a "great warrior" - he rejects Yoda not because he's green or alien but because he's small. I'll have to think about that.

Re: What are your thoughts on Star Wars: The Last Jedi (WARNING! SPOILERS DISCUSSED HERE!)

Honestly, I don't know why Holdo didn't just airlock him for that. That would feel more new-era Battlestar Galactica than Star Wars , though I guess we already had a renegade fleet fleeing some Cylon-equivalents. To say the least, if this were a TV series I'd expect the repercussions of Poe's actio...

Re: What are your thoughts on Star Wars: The Last Jedi (WARNING! SPOILERS DISCUSSED HERE!)

Overall I really enjoyed the film. A test for whether a film sticks with me is whether I keep thinking about it. I did more than think about it: I have a 6000 word (and counting) document where I analyze what's going on with the film. It's mainly for my own benefit, but I'll post it if people are in...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I bought Xenoblade Chronicles 2 on opening day, due in large part to the reviews (positive and negative) claiming it was similar to the first one. So far it's been what I was hoping for: a beautiful open world free to explore, characters who are appealing sometimes because of (Jin) and sometimes des...

Oh: I won't be using any of the gameplay changes Working Designs made. All of the gameplay, including the difficulty level and chest placement, will be the same...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I bought a Switch for my birthday and in preparation for Xenoblade Chronicles 2. I'm playing Stardew Valley (again - the portability + new map makes the game feel new again) and may get Golf Story soon. Haven't done much otherwise because of being so busy. Trails in the Sky SC has taken a bit of my ...

Re: Is Mystere a separate character from Leo?

They are the same character. Leo couldn't bring himself to show his true face to the heroes after his sense of justice was revealed to be wrong. He was ashamed after finding out he had been working for the wrong side. That explains why Leo went away. It doesn't explain where Mystere came from. Even...

Re: Is Mystere a separate character from Leo?

That's like asking whether Luna is the same character as Fresca. Obviously not, superficial similarities in appearance and the fact they never appear side-by-side together aside.
