Re: Final Fantasy series

After more experimentation, and starting the game over (well, from the save point after the gambit menu is available), I finally found a suitable team I'm comfortable with using to clear the game. Just cleared the Giruvegan part of the story, and I've been grinding in the bonus dungeon area of that ...

Re: The Satire of Evangelion

I suppose the question is whether or not the Evas not being actual robots disqualifies the series as a whole from belonging within the mecha genre.

Re: The Satire of Evangelion

I'm not sure I understand your black and white approach to these things. I'm not claiming that the show is totally disguised at first; I even made of point of saying there are clues throughout the beginning of the series. It's a slow burn, not a complete table flip. Using the mecha genre as a vehicl...

Re: The Satire of Evangelion

To me Eva is not a mecha. EVAS are not mechas, and they are not even the focus of the show. So no, it's neither a deconstruction nor a mecha show. The Evas not being true mechas are part of the deconstruction. In the first several episodes, the series is presented very much as a mecha show, and oth...

Re: Who is the EVA character you feel most sorry for?

Even if after a millennia or so, she lands on a planet and begins life anew, I'd still say she's pretty doomed to be trapped within the Eva alone. At best, her progeny will do to her what they did to Lilith. Maybe there's a chance she can get out of things with another Instrumentality, but I think h...

It was a gentle caress that purposefully mirrors Yui's farewell to Shinji. While Shinji feels he is only capable of hurting others with his hands, Asuka reminds him of the potential for connection.

If by happy, you mean becoming a martyr for Third Impact, doomed to an eternity alone within the Eva, just so a group of old men wouldn't completely ruin the world, then yes. Yui is very happy.

Re: Final Fantasy series

Unlocking all the weapon/equipment licenses right away is not advisable; save those points for stat bonuses until better weapons and such are actually available. Better stuff becomes available to buy as the story progresses, or can occasionally be found in the areas equivalent to their level. The on...

Re: Why would someone place a drawing of Sephiroth's tree in the ceiling of his office?

Gendo proposed and executed the idea of using the Evas to fulfill Seele's idea for Instrumentality. Before that, it's not clear how they were planning on completing their goals, but since they were already involved with 2I, they clearly had an idea about Instrumentality, but no solution as to how to...

Re: Final Fantasy series

Secondary jobs become available as a license on your main board after defeating Belias. If you've completed King Raithwall's Tomb, check the license board and unlock for 30 points.

Re: Final Fantasy series

Fran and Ashe both have an innate license for White Magicks 1 and can use Cure right away regardless of job. First Aid is helpful too during that time of the game. I had no problems. I think Cura is available by that time too, so the Red Battlemage can be useful. EDIT: I'm currently grinding the Lev...

Re: Final Fantasy series

After getting familiar enough with the game again, as well as with all the new jobs and license boards, I've decided (as I said I probably would) to start the game over before I get too far and rebuild my team with optimal jobs, using all the available jobs (IOW, not repeating any). Here's what I've...

Re: Has growing up changed how you relate to Evangelion?

I think it's natural for the dynamics of a relationship to change as years go by. I enjoy different things out of Eva now than I did before. There has been times where I feel NGE is uplifting for my depression, and there are other times where I feel stilted by it. It's helped keep things in perspect...

What about it is worrying? Is it indicative of intellectual laziness on the part of the audience? Is enjoying Star Wars as an adult a symptom of something wrong with our culture?

Re: Evangelion VR game BD

POV starts as Unit-00, but that's definitely Unit-01's POV with the chain gun.

Eva needs an AAA game. If we must explore the fourteen year gap, do it in a video game.
