    Now I'm watching Harry Potter. This Saturday keeps throwing twists and turns at me.

    I'm doing pretty good. Writing mainly. Well, now I'm eating.

    Well, I may have to do just that, Forsaken Lover! I MAY HAVE TO.

    I could do that, though I'm not sure how insightful it will be. I haven't played through the Saga series in years (meant to do another playthrough recently but got side tracked) but I'll see what I can do.

    I hate to say it but I have to disagree. Cloud's character borrows heavily from Cecil's archetype and his story of self-identity is sort of a strange mishmash of Cecil's journey of redemption and Terra's struggle to find her place in the world.

    Granted, I do feel Cloud takes some elements from Fei (Masato Kato did work on both projects as a writer) such as a heavier emphasis on psychological issues and both games play with Disassociation Personality Disorder but I wouldn't go so far as to say that Cloud is necessarily unique from other main characters anymore than they are to begin with. Cecil was the first villain protagonist who turned good, Terra was the first protagonist who struggled with issues about identity, Squall was the first character that players truly got into his head and got to see his complete character, and Tidus was the first character whom the player experienced his early and later incarnations simultaneously through the use of narration and clever use of in median res.

    What makes Cloud unique is that he's the Anti-Bartz, Bartz was a nobody who learns that he is a somebody and his heroic deads are sort of a familial destiny. Cloud on the other hand, thinks he's somebody only to learn he's actually nobody, but the point is to give the message that even nobodies can be heroes if they put their minds to it (and get genetically modified by the bad guys to gain super powers).

    Fei's story is... well its complicated and I don't want to fill this page with another wall of text to get my point. Still I feel its a good topic and there is nothing wrong with making another Gears thread if you ask me.

    Yeah, that's another thing. I was told when Hope had his... 'moments' it had nothing to do with the loss of his mother. I'm guessing the poor writing on their part is the reason it came across that way?

    You're the first person I've seen say they liked Hope as a character. I knew they existed somewhere, though. I mean, he's getting cosplayers. I'm mostly indifferent to him because I didn't get far enough in the game to the part where people started to dislike him so all I have to go on is second-hand knowledge.

Fantasy vs. Reality

"You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall."

For those who don't know, my real life politics are of a very Progressive persuasion.I'm a filthy SJW, if you are the kind of person who uses that term seriously. My YouTube Subscriptions are all to channels fighting a heroic e-battle against the stream of right wing racism, misogyny and transphobia that plagues that site.

It's time to recognize one of Capcom's greatest musical achievements - the score for Onimusha/Onimusha: Warlords/Genma Onimuha.

Composed by Mamoru Samuragochi with full backing from the New Japan Philharmonic Orchestra, it was intended to provide a truly cinematic feel. An unforgettable atmosphere full of every range of emotion.

And it scueeds.

Now the song in this opening is known as Rising Sun 1st Movement but I can't just post the tune. i have to post
