Re: TSS text fun

Huh? I thought I replied to this. Anyway, what I said is that Fulari is clearly the girl who ends up working in Ramus's shop, but we could call the logger's wife Kakar.

Re: Least favorite Lunar 1 or Lunar 2 character

Pretty much all the attempts to make Kyle look cool and heroic came off as forced. It doesn't help that he literally feels tacked onto the story as a love interest for Jessica, moreso in the Sega CD version. I suppose we're supposed to think he's cool and funny, but I've always found him to be real...

TSS text fun

I'm picking up a long-backburnered project of mine which involves reviewing and formatting all of the TSS text. I've only looked at Caldor Isle and the Katarina Zone so far, but I wanted to share a few tidbits. First, here are a few lines that almost certainly never appear in the game: "THE BRI...

Re: Jess's Mom

I clearly missed some new post notifications. :P However, earlier today I read through all of the game text pertaining to Vane, so I can add a few things. But first: Y'know, I also wouldn't put it past him for Ghaleon to send Nash away on a pointless mission just to get him the hell away from Mia. H...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

The game did get an official Japanese guide, which is why I know the numeric stuff. A lot of very painful kanji lookup was involved. At one time I considered putting the stuff I'd gathered on GameFAQs, along with my collection of mission strategies, but never did. I still need to do a playthrough wi...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

Drat, I missed that there had been further replies on this. Oh well. We played a bit of Growlanser V but never got through the kind of prequelish bit of playing as the previous generation. I think the main issue was finding the combat a bit clunky at the outset (in the sense of controller operation,...

Re: All this time I have been a fan of Phantasy Star.

Heh. I thought jay_are had used one of those browser extension script things to replace the text and then taken a screenshot. Didn't realize it was from this end.

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

Do you start NG+ with an extra +2 Whup-Ass, sorry, I mean Hyper-Attack? The gem that Wein gets from Logan at the beginning, I mean. (And yes, that was its pre-release name. I almost wish it had stayed.) I also remember a really awesome Lv9 gem from completing the cat-girl's sidequest that might unba...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I've been thinking of getting back to my replay of II that I started in...um. 2005? I never have played III because I wanted to get all of the characters' endings of II first, and I think I was less than halfway through that when I stopped. When I first played the game I was really admiring of how g...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

Played some of TSS in Japanese. Had to keep redoing due to technical difficulties though so I'm only up to meeting Quark (for the first time). Got distracted by the (English) text, which I'm still trying to organize better.

Re: Jess's Mom

The manga definitely fit only with the SSS continuity, not the TSS. Why do you say that? Chronologically it takes place before the Black Dragon went insane OR Althena became human voluntarily. Because the Vheen manga was written to go with the release of SSS. (The mangaka, Akari Funato, also design...

Re: Jess's Mom

The manga definitely fit only with the SSS continuity, not the TSS. I don't think anyone knows the Red and Blue dragons were dead until Alex gets to them, so the exact chronology of when they were knocked out is unclear. Although, I just checked the TSS game text and Quark does not tell Alex to find...

Re: Jess's Mom

I took a peek through the TSS Meribia and Mel's Mansion text a few nights ago and confirm that no reason is given. Someone does say that she died when Jess was very young. SSS might have comments from Jess on whether she actually remembers her mom, but it's much harder for me to check that. Regardin...

More Breath of the Wild last night. 726 Koroks found, 174 to go... I may finally break down and get the Korok Mask sometime.

Re: Jess's Mom

Well, it's only one line, easily missable. She says it after you return from Grimzol's Cave but before you use the Goddess Seal to cure the disease. I think that's the only reference to her father. In the garden at the top of the Grindery Mia remarks on how kind Ghaleon was to her when she was a chi...

Cool! I've been looking at the Japanese script and thinking about making some notes on flags, if I have the stamina for it. I really need more time and energy. >_<

Re: Jess's Mom

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I've never seen anything about what she died from. I *think* there's a mention of Jessica being with her mom, though, so that would rule out childbirth. The Japanese TSS guide has some backstory Shiva Indis summarized for us years ago (2005!) about Mel as a pirate and how he an...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

My husband is back to chewing through Xenogears, slowly. I wish I could remember what was going on better.

I've been playing Animal Crossing Pocket Camp on my phone, and New Leaf on my 3DS. Also Hyrule Warriors Legends on my 3DS. Hoping to finally get to my Breath of the Wild DLC this weekend.

Re: Our cat is pretty great.

Fun little cat update Chez Alunissage. We are now managing Rhombus's diabetes more directly, meaning blood glucose tests before every shot and several times during the day. Unfortunately, home testing means pricking his ear to get blood, which he quite reasonably doesn't like. His complaint meow sou...
