  1. Probably not. First, Xenogears was cut because Square Enix had a stringent production schedule; not anything do with Final Fantasy VIII per se. Takahashi has been on the record about this; e.g. here. By contrast, Xenoblade was delayed *specifically* to avoid this scenario. ------------------------- My own guess is that Xenoblade 3 has already gone gold and could have always targeted a July release, but was strategically held off until September assuming Splatoon would target July instead. Splatoon 3 needed the September deadline, so Xenoblade 3 was moved up. Generally speaking, I'd go further and say Nintendo strongly prefers to have games go gold before they begin marketing; without fail, because it's clear games that are announced before that are delayed without fails. Especially Prime 4 and BotW 2.
  2. Honestly, of all ideas for a live-action, Persona doesn't seem the worst? Mostly because it's partially slice-of-life, and given enough cgi budget, the Personae/demons feel like they'd translate to live-action well enough. I can picture it better than Netflix's One Piece. I'm terrified what that's going to look like.
  3. Fellas, 2k miles later, and I'm back in Cali.
  4. No kidding. Heat wave. I don't even know what this is. It looks like an infomercial product that saw a Gameboy and was like "what if we did that, but as a fan." But it's all the store had so I got it:
  5. Fellas, Davy and I begin our trek to California tomorrow. Well, back to Cali for me.
  6. That label is so broad as to be meaningless. In-app purchases can just mean DLC or any one time fee, which is probably what it is. More broadly, ESA uses "in-app purchases" to keep up the appearances of tackling microtransactions and lootboxes while actually protecting corporate interests. As such, ESA is incentivized to put the label on as many games as possible so that you *don't* know what games have microtransactions.
  7. Ascendants are added to normal pool as well. Letizia isn't a mythic or legendary; they're just a normal unit like Nifl or Muspell. She lacks the blessing icon when they show her stats.
  8. Summer games? The three that come to mind are Live A LIve, AI Somnium: Nirvana Initative, and Xenoblade 3. Maybe Three Hopes, but lmao, I'm booting up Pirate Warriors again so probably not anytime soon. and happy pride y'all
  9. Clearly that snake buddy in the middle of FE cosplayers is python from echoes.
  10. anyway, davy and I's itinerary is planned out. We have a looooooooong drive to just inside New Mexico; followed by a short drive to middle of Arizona the next day; and then a drive so short to SoCal, that we'll probably check out the Kaibab National Forest first. We'll arrive at my parents on his birthday, lmfao. That's just how timing worked out. Anyway, T-minus 42 days until departure
  11. It's not just Obergefell/Lawrence is on thin ice because lmao, guess who learned last week Roe, Lawrence, and Obergefell all use the same basic legal argument. There's also how much anti-queer rhetoric (although more anti-trans than anti-lgbt broadly) is not only accelerating this year but includes a special focus on schools when, oops, my career plan changed to being a teacher during the pandemic. The fact David and I need to talk about fucking *Lawrence* is just spooky as hell. Lastly, and most critically, my parents may only be able to hold us over this year while we take a month to get settled, so we need to hedge our bets now. We've tried to explain our concerns as openly as possible to David's mother, but she's doing the whole "nothing will happen" thing. Which hmm. Mostly, David and I aren't going to talk with her about the politics too long. We've explained our concerns and mostly saying "we're entitled to our choices and we'll do what we feel most comfortable doing." We're aware we might be overreacting, but if the worst case scenario is that we end up in Cali instead of Texas for no urgent reason, there's worse outcomes.
  12. a taste of my shitty-ass week: In-law: "Your boyfriend comes from a very close family. That is why you came here. You can't run away so quickly." Me: "And I don't come from a close family?" In-law: "You don't have a grandpa like David." sorry if my grandparents died, ma'am. (and yes, I realize they're not technically my inlaws because we aren't married yet, but like... that's basically our relationship lmao) And context, my inlaws are not taking David and I's decision to move to California well, like, at all.
  13. Exhaustion is a status ailment, just like poison.
  14. Yep. Fatigue is only in P3. Instead in Persona 4, days you spend dungeon crslawling and days you spend social linking are mutually exclusive.
  15. So I had like a very shitty day yesterday so if any of y'all have pics or vids of cute cats doing cute things that'd be swell.
