Re: Finally finished this, mini-review/comparison

I loved the M Exp, myself. Was pretty disappointed when the remake just had spells morph on their own to become more expensive. I also liked how Lucia had a lot more spells, mostly pretty cool-looking, in the original. Much preferred the inventory management in the remake, though.

Re: My "fiance" is now my wife finally! We got married!

Congratulations! On both the marriage and the puppy. :)

My husband and I bought a king-sized bed as our wedding present to ourselves. It was the right move, because we almost always have 2-5 cats on it at night.

Sleeping passengers on Hispaniola

Anyone remember offhand if it's possible to talk to the sleeping passengers and sailors (and hear them sleeptalking) on the Hispaniola, just before going up on deck to see the Boat Song? It isn't in the iOS version, but there's Japanese text for them, so I was wondering if either SSSC or SSS (Japane...

Re: Vile tribe

I *think* Lucia's lips also move in EB when she's about to cast magic -- although her AI can also change at the time and have her run off if everyone else has been knocked out before it's her turn. At least, I'm pretty sure I recall this happening, probably in the Illusion Woods. I think that might ...

Re: Merry Christmas!

I don't celebrate it, but I had a very pleasant day. My husband is visiting his family, so it's just me and the cats right now. But he and I had a video chat where I got to say hi to my inlaws and be amused by the lunch preparations involving my BIL's Instant Pot that somehow cost four dollars. Late...

Re: Is Mystere a separate character from Leo?

I'll never forget that moment in Vay where my housemate, who had previously introduced me to the RPG genre when we played TSS together, said, "So let me get this straight. Luna is really the Goddess Althena...?" Seriously, playing Vay just after TSS was...something.

Re: Four heros

Regarding Noah being injured, I found the reference to that: it's in Lunar Legend. Thalia: “In his youth his father did go on an adventure to the Continent with Dyne. In the end, he was hurt on the way and returned to Burg.” Sadly, my LL notes, at least the ones that are typed up, are much barer tha...

Re: Four heros

Well, to be fair, a lot of that is transcription, and I'm setting up a better framework for that now. And it turns out that my notes go up to a little after Mel gets turned to stone. It just seems like every time I replay this game Lann is about where I pause, for some reason. I would guess that in ...

Re: Four heros

One more thing. Alex's mother says in SSS that "Your father went adventuring with Dragonmaster Dyne when he was your age." Somehow I had always assumed that Noah and Dyne were older than 15 (Alex's age in SSS; he's 17 in TSS). Though I suppose we don't know that Noah and Dyne are the same ...

I'm looking over the beginning of my notes on SSSC (a 236-page document and I think it only goes up to, like, Lann) and found the quote of Alex's father about going with Dyne: Noah: Alex…! You got that ring from the White Dragon Cave? I’m so proud that you were able to find it! I always knew you wou...

Re: Four heros

Hey, I found some scene transcriptions I did when I played Lunar Legend. Thought this might be of interest: Laike: Back then I chose, of my own free will, the path joining my destiny with Althena’s. Even though it meant I’d lose all my power, I chose to walk that path of hope, toward the future that...

Re: Vile tribe

Heh. Yeah. I think I'd respond a little differently now, but maybe not. I had forgotten my speculation that Ghaleon's transformation could have been related to the "demigod" that the Four Heroes vanquished per TSS. I vaguely recall Vic saying that Ghaleon was an elf, which is maybe where y...

Re: Vile tribe

It may not be clear from that, but I've never been as "into" Ghaleon as most fans, it seems. I may be the only one who was seriously annoyed at his appearance in EB, because it just didn't make much sense other than a bit of "let's put the 'cool' evil guy in" fanservice. I though...

Re: Vile tribe

This is going to sound like a total cop-out, I know, but honestly? I never cared what race Ghaleon was when I'd only played TSS and didn't know of any other Lunar stuff at all. There were clearly at least three races, plus fairies and dragons, why not more? The only backstory in the game wasn't suff...

Re: Vile tribe

"Mazoku" is a deliciously ambiguous word common to fantasy media in Japan. The "ma" on its own may literally mean "demon" or "evil" (hence the "Vile" of Vile Tribe), so the etymology of words for "magic" in Japanese such as "mahou&quo...

Re: Vile tribe

What do you suppose "a terrible abuse of Black Magic" means? Black Magic is loosely defined in the game as meaning destructive magic that can harm people ... So... did Ignatius use magic to intimidate the people in the Frontier, or brainwash them, or...? The distinction seems to be irrele...

Re: Four heros

Yeah, I had hoped I'd be able to find a way to get the Japanese text out of the game files (I've been checking Artemio's English text dump against the files because some lines were missed), but no dice. If I ever play to that point in Japanese I'll screenshot it...but I don't know when that is likel...

Waiting impatiently for the Valkyria Chronicles 4 DLC, I found that I hadn't gotten every single thing in the playthrough I did of Valkyria 1 a couple years ago, so I played a little of that. More different from 4 than I remembered. But aha! The expert level skirmishes are now available. Now I gotta...
