Re: what final fantasy character do I name my baby after

your child should live with the knowledge she is named after an Engrish mistranslation of an actual, normal English name for a girl. what could the alternative possibly be Oh, should she have actually been named Lydia? I remember wondering about this once but never bothered to investigate further.

Re: Final fucking fantasy 22 3/4

It doesn't stop at ARR, oh no. XIV is the Queen Greatest Hits of the Final Fantasy franchise. That's what folks have been telling me! The various clockwork minions and character-specific articles of clothing were a pretty big giveaway, to say nothing of the occasional automobile flying overhead , b...

Re: Final fucking fantasy 22 3/4

Was the rumor that the treasure was in the Empire's possession , or merely in the Empire's lands? The latter situation still poses a pretty big obstacle to treasure hunters on other continents, and it would justify the treasure's ultimate location turning out to be in ancient ruins uncovered by apoc...

Re: Final fucking fantasy 22 3/4

Square Enix had to suspend sales of Final Fantasy XIV last year because of the popularity of its Endwalker expansion, but in February, they finally got additional servers set up, so they reopened their store. I had decided it was time to try it myself, and I bought my copy the same day. I was curiou...

Re: Final fucking fantasy 22 3/4

My recollection is that the "search for Terra" leg of the journey has a lot of opportunities for special scenes: Edgar and Sabin both react to stuff in the Figaro castle, Locke and Celes both react to Kohlingen, and if you pick him up, I feel like this is the first likely opportunity to ge...

Re: Batman (created by Bill Finger and Bob Kane)

A friend invited me out to see The Batman over the weekend, and it was pretty good! It was interesting how this is clearly a "new" introduction to Batman that is perfectly willing to minimize lots of background details with the understanding that it's 2022. You know how Batman works. They ...

Re: Game musings and news

Yep. Preliminary reports suggest that it's not as punishing as Sekiro, but boss fights (especially the one right at the start) are still extremely difficult. However, the open world makes it easier than ever to just wander elsewhere to get more equipment/spells/etc. On the downside, the extremely op...

1499767706232532999 So... wait... is Elden Ring actually just another souls game??? (I'm not asking because of the cheeky ending above, but because the footage I've seen looks like Souls style combat - and atmosphere) Your post here suggests to me that you may not be aware that Elden Ring is the la...

Re: Final fucking fantasy 22 3/4

It strikes me now that my approach to playing FFVI as the "Moogle Charm maximization simulator" may not have been as universal as I always assumed. I didn't realize that the Fanatic's Tower enemies don't grant XP because I've literally never allowed an encounter with them to occur.

Oh, I guess it could be, couldn't it? Without additional cues such as an explicit y'all or the kind of ornate vernacular of your Foghorn Leghorns and similar stereotypes, I just read "howdy folks" as a sort of western dialect, in the frontier sense. Still, even then it's more specific than...

Re: #Tell Friday

Hi, Friday! I've been playing Final Fantasy XIV. It's very easy, but I'm also not very far yet, and everyone has been very pleasant and nice to look at. Anyway, I hope things improve for you!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NrI0MKBMDzE I'm so glad this game ( 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim ) is getting more support by coming out on the Switch. Once I (finally) played through it myself, practically the only thing I did on YouTube for the next six months was watch other peoples' Let's Plays. It'...

Re: Game musings and news

Kotick remains in charge until the sale is complete, at least. Hopefully a quick departure will follow.

Candy Crush is their money maker, but acquiring Call of Duty seems like the bigger deal in terms of the Microsoft/Sony competition.

Re: FinalFight Discord?

I have been (begrudgingly, bitterly) increasing my familiarity with discord, and as much as I dislike it, it works for me in a way that no mobile IRC app ever has. Pretty sure I've got a discord profile logged into the Legitimate Businessmen that I haven't checked on in years? Among possibly others?
