    Just remembered that PSP screenshots are in PSP resolution. I now have that lovely picture of Riela that surfaced at TGS as my PSP background.

    Which picture, this one?

    Yup.

    Also: Imuka is better.

    I'm not going to get into this argument, since I don't have the game yet. But Riela is at least familiar.

    You know what? I like that there's main characters people are going to argue over who is better.

    Unlike VC2, where we mostly argue who is worse.

    Alexis should be the main character.

    She even has the stereotypical shounen series lead Giant Sword.

    With which she chops things in half.

    Well, Sega generally finds some way to ruin a game.

    Kurt is the squad leader, right? I saw in one of those videos, one of the squad members was running up to other squaddies and getting them to follow him and lend support fire. Could this be Kurts 'super' mode?

    Yea I think one of the articles explain his super is to walk up to a squad mate and have them follow.

    To me the only RPGs that warrant/require/pull off multiple endings are the western more-freeform RPGs. Dragon Age and Fallout, et cetera. I suppose Chrono Sphere must have pulled it off back on the SNES, but that was long before I got into JRPGs.

    I'm absolutely convinced now that VC3 will have pseudo-dating sim elements to determine who Kurt ends up with.

    And when it happens, just remember, it's all Pure's fault for opening that box.

    Also, I wonder what sort of saccharine anime mascot we can look forward to with this group of convicts and criminals

    Let me make myself clear.

    I'm not team Riela. I'm using the screenshot of her because it's one of the better screenshots released.

    I'm also leaving off declaring a 'team', because fuck, might as well start watching Twilight after that.

    And then Kurt will end up with Imuka or Riela depending on how many affection points you've accumulated over the course of the game, naturally.

    Getting towards the endgame, and I'm pretty much not seeing the point of sending ATs down the Vet tree. I've made Jamill and Joachim into specialists and it is fairly underwhelming. While the flashbang is nice for setting up no resistance at a camp or entrenched area, the Spec's AP still isn't that great for getting in position for it.

    So I'm pretty much just going to redirect Jamill and Joachim to Fencers and send all my un-upgraded ATs down there too. I can live with not being able to repair sandbags or disarm mines in exchange for massive weapons for massive damage.

    I'm just looking forward to 3's (comparatively) darker storyline. And the reborn hope that "the next one may be on PS3."

    Edit: oh, and I meant Chrono Trigger, but I said Sphere because... I dunno, I love Odin Sphere? I knew something sounded wrong about it when I wrote it, but was too lazy to look it up. So lazy.

    You know, after VC2 I'd say it was a bit of a tossup, considering the series had one entry each on a new system and there wasn't already a sense of sticking with something. But after two VC games announced for the PSP, thereby sending a message that 'Okay, we've experimented around and we want to stick to this system', why would they uproot it again?

    That's hardly fair, VCII is a good game. It's just that it's on a console we didn't want with a story that's not as good.

    Because they know it's what the core audience wants. I hope my theory about having the franchise on PSP for the sake of growing its (fanatically loyal) audience before moving back to an HD console ends up being accurate.

    Aw. I thought it was a good theory. Put the franchise on a system with twenty three million more units in consumer hands than the PS3, get them addicted to it the same way we were on the PS3, and perhaps those crazy loyal fans will follow the series back to the PS3 with their gobs of money?

    ...that sounded totally reasonable to me.
