I was looking at stuff from Radical Dreamers because I'm trying to figure out how to draw Esmeld, when I found this sprite sheet of enemies in the game. I recognize all of them but the creepy face on the far top right. Where did that one show up?

Well, making the entire cast bisexual would make it more like Trigger...

: Turnip! I... I have a confession...
: What is it, my love?
: I... I have a stamen!
: ...I am okay with this.

That's right, I'm making a list of who to send to my own Zeality style death camps fun farms.

I pick Magil. The change from a child that blames himself, to someone who tries to be completely self-reliant, to someone that others can actually rely on is, in my mind, much more interesting and challenging than someone who reverts back to a self-blaming child from despair. "Darker" isn't better.

maggikarp: This is the first time I have heard this idea of their having different languages. I just assumed that Ayla and the other Cavemen spoke poor Japanese (poorer than the Reptites). It would make sense that they have different languages; however, it seems unlikely that every human around would be able to speak it at all, when the only other persons who speak it are the enemy. Aside from that, Ayla would have first addressed Crono and the others in the normal human language and not in that of the Reptite's.

Technically she first greeted them by pinning Crono against the wall and humping him, and probably switched to Reptite when she heard them speak it. Aside from "Lavos", you also have the bobonga dance.

Lucca seems pretty comfortable talking about attractive men, and actually seems surprised that Crono is hanging out with a cute girl, but we have no real way to tell for sure how many friends she and Crono had besides each other.

Also to chirp in on the argument of what kind of strength Ayla values: it's kind of out of the way dialogue, but they do say that Ayla found Kino as a baby and raised him. She says that the strong live and the weak die, but she clearly loves Kino and he's next in line to be chief if she dies, even if he says he's weak and wants to be stronger.

Maybe there's some subtleties we're missing in this culture, from the Ioka and Laruba disagreements to Ayla's own decisions. After all, the audience's language is the Reptite's language, not Ayla's first language.

Is it all right to believe in the possibility of a god or some kind of sentient universe and still think abortions are a-ok?

The soundtrack was good. The battle system was interesting. The colors were pretty.

...Nyyaaargh I have to say what could make it better!

-Set it to 14 playable characters, with only two or three as optional. The rest can be made into wacky plot-relevant NPCs, which worked really well in CT. No one is really that disappointed that Toma, Tata, Fritz, Fiona, Kino, Lara with robot legs, etc. couldn't join your team since they made the actual world more interesting.
- Either put the reveal of Kid being Schala or Guile being Magus earlier in the game so we can actually deal with that plot thread instead of frustrating everyone when it's over. Same goes for Lynx is Serge's catdad.
- Chibify the cast to make them more emotive, or at least make a set of reaction face icons. Something more substantial than Kid's two-pixel difference smile or frown. Ideally Serge could go back to being a narrator, but I'll pick my battles.
- Absolutely no fighting the previous cast of CT unless it comes from a misunderstanding and they help you afterwards. Actually having a physical manifestation of "our game beat that game!!" is just going to piss off fans more. It wasn't just the music that made the Miguel fight depressing.
- PUT IN SOME GOD DAMN JOKES. You can't have an emotional journey with shock, sadness, and confusion as your only feelings.
- If you're going to include bits of what happened to the CT cast, at least resolve them before the game is over. Don't half-ass it. Don't just say "well they got resolved in a different timeline!" No, that's lazy and you shouldn't even have dragged it up if you were just gonna cameo it.
- Explain Kid and Harle. What are they? What's going on? Dragons? Lavoids? Baby clone echoes? Is this an episode of Maury?
- Have Dalton fall into a lava pit or something.

It's over ;_;

Magus: I'm still fucking creepy and weird and evil. I'm just gonna fly off. Whatever.

Submitting Lucca for nothing but science vote

But Magus is from magic sky island.

Everyone knows they play basketball like whoa.

It's magic or Doreen knew how to swim

On one hand I think it's really cool to have a hardened soldier character in a JRPG not be a teenager

on the other they also list Magus's height as like 5'9"

JRPG characters you SHORT
