Xenosaga Episode III - Day 8
 You can tell I’m nearing the end of the game, as they’ve started killing off major characters. As always, proceed at ones own risk!As battle continues to rage over Mictam, Margulis consults Ormus boss Heinlein for orders. Heinlein seems rather less interested than usual though, and

The Maths of Tsundere (or: a lousy excuse for a graph post)
 Tsundere annoys me. It didn’t use to annoy me, but it does now. Its been a far, far too overused character model recently. It just seems like lazy and uncreative writing to me - it seems like an easy way of having something approaching character development without actually putting any thought...

Xenosaga Episode III - Day 7
 Finally, back to making some progress! Sorry for the complete lack of images in this evenings post - all the good stuff is on the other side of a pair of really nasty boss battles, and I didn’t want to do that all over againThe party heads towards Abels Ark in order to put a

Palm Characters Rin and Archer
 Yeah, more Fate/Stay Night figures. These are a little disappointing, actually, by the usual standards of the Palm figures series. The moulding around the hands is a bit messy, and the paint work isn’t particularly clean either. The Rin figure is completely set in pose - no movable arms like

Xenosaga Episode III - Day 6
 Unfortunately, at this point, I’d have to summarise the story since my last post as follows - “Realising their current capabilities as being woefully inadequate, Shion sets off on an epic training exercise".Alas, I've been blindsided by a sudden (and significant) increase in

Xenosaga Episode III - Day 5, part 2
 Some big, fairly unexpected events this time. I can’t imagine there being much more of the game left, but unfortunately I’m not going to have as much time to play during the week, so expect the next few days posts not to cover as much story.Arriving at Mictam, we see a fierce battle in

Xenosaga Episode III - Day 5
 Good lord, this is getting hard to follow. Don’t take anything I say as being massively accurate, since I’m referring back to a dictionary every thirty seconds here (and my japanese sucks anyway). I’m pretty sure this is almost entirely correct, but the game is throwing an

Xenosaga Episode III - Day 4, part 2
 You know the drill. There were some annoying gaps between save points here again, so once again there aren’t as many images as I’d like.Shion is being questioned by Margulis, Kevin and her father, and she kind of puts her foot in it by revealing she knows more than she possibly should -

Xenosaga Episode III - Day 4
 She’s back!Sorry about the lack of screenshots here - the save points weren’t in places conductive to going back for pictures, with a few long, gruelling boss battles in between points.Anyway, having returned to the Elsa with the data for producing KOS-MOS black box components, Hakase

 In which the game throws lots of dialogue I didn’t quite get at me, and nothing massively exciting happens.Shion decides to go into the city to investigate, and heads off in the direction of Labyrinthos. On the outskirts of the city, she and Allen come across the wreckage of a UTIC vehicle,

Xenosaga Episode III - Day 3
 Those who were hoping to some kind of quick resolution to the events I talked about last time are out of luckI left this out last time for dramatic purposes, but as T-elos is about to crush KOS-MOS, Shion seems to see her as a familiar figure, and her necklace starts to glow. The field

 OMG WTF XSII FTW!Spoilers for the BEST VIDEOGAME FMV EVER follow.Seriously, I promptly reset the game, loaded my save and fought through a boss encounter to watch this again.And then again.Just to quickly cover the story - Having reached the Elsa, Shion and chums head off in the E.S. Units to

 Well, day four technically, but since I’ve been prevented from playing the last couple of days for various reasons, I’m calling it day two.General, spoiler-free game talk is on the second page, whilst all the spoiler content is on the thrid.First, and most pointless, things first -

Fate/Stay Night Tricolle!
 Bandais latest Tri-colle! Trading figure series features the girls of Fate/Stay Night. I've previously talked about the My-HiME/ZHiME set, so how does this one match up?Not too bad, actually. Admittedly, in terms of detailing they don't really match the typical Palm Character figure in

 Spoilers ahoy!Lordy, I don't think I've played such a front-heavy RPG since, well, the original Xenosaga. Theres a lot of story going on right at the start, and within the first two hours of play I've only actually got control over my characters in two locations.Anyway, the game
