435
How old would you put her?
She's 43.
Anyways, I actually called this.

It was more along the line of a joke, but it hilariously came true.

43? That's insane. Brb, moving to Japan.

I don't mind the rest of the game's costumes, but Serah's default dress looks ridiculous. I wish they'd partner with Mistwalker/Nintendo and do a The Last Story crossover, because I'd gladly pay to put her in Calista's dress:
640

A female anime character in realistic and pretty clothing. Now there's a thing you don't see every day.

As for the N7 armour crossover... I just.. What. It doesn't make any sense.

[If it's not realistic, it's not video games! Luckily, large swords were used throughout history.]

jack-all story

["Travel through time to defeat omnipotent villain" is pretty boring compared to "Save galaxy from invading aliens".]

extremely linear gameplay

[ I'll give you this one. Final Fantasy XIII's hallways reminded me of Mass Effect's hallways. *shudders*]

and mercilessly padded-out lengths which stretch 10 hours of content over 100 hours

[You got me again, I like my video games to have gameplay.].

If only more JRPGs had BioWare's innovative third-person shooting mechanics, black and white morality systems and decisions that are mostly vague enough to give the player the illusion of choice while having the narrative advance in more or less the same way. Not to mention the ever-interesting space marine Shepard and his Star Wars/Star Trek/Babylon 5-esque crew of to-be sexual conquests.

(For the record, I loved the first Mass Effect. tongue.gif)

One word comes to mind when I see this... Fromage.
I was a huge FF fan pretty much right up to FFX then it started sucking with FFXIII being the Dyson of the games.

Yes but with some modern developers DLC is just another way to increase game price and decrease development time because they plan out the game with DLC in mind from the start.

No thank you, I would rather have a real battle system rather than the take cover/mash fire button/keep moving up mindlessness that is ME3.

The combat system in Tales of Graces F or any of the recent tales games is a perfect example of how to do battle systems.

That I can agree with, at least for real-time combat. Other Tales games' combat wasn't bad, but Graces f''s CC system just went above and beyond anything they'd done before. It encourages guarding, dodging and going all out with your Artes and stringing together some truly impressive combos. It's so nice not having to constantly pop Orange Gels.

I still prefer traditional turn-based, but if developers wanna do real-time then they should look to Graces. Tales of Xillia, which looks like it may be getting localized, uses a combo of CC for regular attacks and TP for Artes. Should be interesting.
