Re: Fate/Extra

I'm not certain at what point, I think Round 4 (perhaps Round 5 but that sounds too late) you'll get a Formal Wear that expends your MP to refill 30 or so of your Servant's MP. By then it's of a trivial cost to get items to refill your Master's MP so it works out pretty well. The only bad part is yo...

Re: Burke's First Impressions of Gundam 00!

Nope, no romance between them. I'm not sure how to describe it, but these two have a pretty special bond. Not romantic love, I'm not even sure I'd call it friendship, in a conventional sense. But it's something they both need from each other, whatever it is. :) I think of it as an Amuro/Lalah thing...

Re: Fate/Zero

When I first saw his pictures and stuff in the novels I didn't think I'd like Rider much for whatever reason, but he really is just about the most awesome guy around haha. Honestly, what was wrong with him going out in shorts though? They didn't look like boxers to me, so why the big fuss over pants...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Mecha Thread Mk I

Spoiler

That heat pickaxe was actually pretty cool looking while it was activated. I enjoyed how realistically stiff and limited in movement the worker MS was too, a nice 'missing link' sort of thing between normal robots and evolution to true mobile suit.

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread Mk II

You know, it surprises me how there are still detractors who decry the show for being too kiddy when we've seen so much dark stuff already (Grodeck being pretty darn dark for a good guy himself). This is what, the second time we've really seen much of a slum in Gundam, and the first was only Shangri...

Re: Fate/Extra

Saddest at first, to me, was the couple down on the first floor who were so intent on helping each other through the war (though I guess they didn't think all the way through to the end). Seeing the boyfriend so gung-ho in round 1, then suddenly so very withdrawn in round 2, asking you to promise to...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Mecha Thread Mk I

Ooooh, if this is actually the AGE-2, I very much like it, and it sort of gives us an idea how it's going to further evolve. It seems to be taking on wings, perhaps growing more and more similar to the Gafran and Zedas, evolving along those lines.

Re: Fate/Extra

Nice! I imagine from now on the only real trouble will be the first days on new floors when you don't know anything about the enemies. I'm betting most of the bosses will be a breeze (aside from a particular Berserker), as long as you just spam magic haha. I'm on week 6, but Skyrim's had me distract...

Well, I suppose it wouldn't hurt his chances.

Though personally I'd still probably think of Shiro upon seeing him. *Shudder*

^ Yeah, that's really the main reason. And a darn good one, too! Also, point taken about trying the thread anyway, next time, no holding back! From what I've read, Saber and Archer are both pretty much guaranteed to get their Matrix to E, but yeah for whatever reason Caster is apparently difficult. ...

Yay, another Fate/Extra player! As per the poll, I picked Saber (because she is so very much my type) and I generally prefer the Saber class for all its awesomeness. Admittedly, Caster is adorable . But yeah, it'll probably be very tough going for you until you can afford to spam spells at things. I...

It really is silly how many near-unique MS these disparate, destitute terrorist cells have managed to maintain for up to 16 years. Oh! Yeah, that part is kind of odd, I thought it was just a comment on the colors haha. But yeah, it feels kind of forced, especially if it all appears to be relatively...

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Mecha Thread Mk II

I dunno, I rather like the color scheme. And it's been a long time since the Efreet was introduced, I'm interested in seeing how it's been updated (if at all).

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread Mk II

Well, I think the mindset of the son of a Gundam designer/pilot will be pretty different anyway. We haven't had many direct descendants of Gundam pilots as protagonists before (unless Feldt counts, but she wasn't a pilot), if any at all, so I'm kind of interested in seeing what he's like anyway. I'm...

Re: Last Exile - Ginyoku no Fam

Well with the most recent episode, it's wonderful to actually see Tatiana and Alister back in action and still together (<3). I'm curious what exactly Captain Wisla and the Sylvius are doing, particularly in requiring that Fam steal a fleet of 15 Ades ships to win her freedom. I rather enjoyed Gisel...

Re: Burke's First Impressions of Gundam 00!

This theme about Setsuna was something I liked about 00 and helped it stand out, particularly with the ramifications he experiences. Season 1 does a really good job of it. HOWEVER , I want to note that as for characters not having "any affiliation with a Gundam"...Wing REALLY stressed that the Gund...

Re: Burke's First Impressions of Gundam 00!

Well, Setsuna's idolization of the Gundam puts it in a little different light for him too, than in comparison to past leads who mostly didn't have any affiliation with a Gundam before they stumbled into the cockpit or were introduced on a 'This is part of your job' note to it. Gundam is synonymous w...

Re: Burke's First Impressions of Gundam 00!

Just as an aside, Setsuna also shares a lot of similarities with Sousuke Sagara from Full Metal Panic! though he too is rather Heero-like haha. I imagine the three of them get along quite well in SRW. I too immediately thought of it as a reimagining of Wing, complete with Pacifist Princess, but it t...

Re: What's Your Latest Game? Mk III

I'm going back and forth between a couple, but the most recent one I started was Skies of Arcadia earlier today, which I've wanted to play for quite a long time. In terms of newer games, I'm working near the end of my first playthrough of Fate/Extra.
