Too Many Megas?

Posted by Virus #0579 , Sep 10 2014 · 98 views

NO SUCH THING

Anyway

MEGA GALLADE HAS A CAPE IT'S SO MAJESTIC! Though, the green helmet looks sort of out of place now, methinks. But bigger badder armblades with flames of esper power streaming out is totally awesome.

Mega Sharpedo. Now none of our battleships are safe. This isn't a Pokemon I've trained or really wanted to train, so not much to say.

My views on Mega Camerupt are similar, it--wait...is that the Team Magma emblem on its face?! That's...wow. Aside from this, it appears to be a very angry footstool. Though maybe it's supposed to look more like a volcanic island. *shrug*

Primal Mascots have named abilities now: Sea of Beginnings and Land of Endings. Guess who has which. We've been told they'll activate "Strong Rain" and "Strong Sunlight" (I thought it was already called that?), which have not been defined, but are probably just the same thing that Rain and Sunlight were before Gen VI.

Also, it was confirmed a short time ago that the moves the Primals are using in trailers are actually new moves, so yay, signature moves for more legendaries! We don't have a name for Primal Kyogre's move yet, but the translation given for Primal Groudon's move is "Cliff's Blade". Sounds pretty cool.

Two months left, eh? They'll probably reveal new stuff via CoroCoro right up to the release.

In the end, going with "Mahou Shoujo Mega Man" would have messed up my current naming pattern, so I went with a different Star Force-inspired name instead.

I love Mega Man Star Force. I love it so much.

Mahou Shoujo Mega Man

Posted by Virus #0579 , Sep 04 2014 · 75 views

The other day I saw a surprisingly, well…surprised reaction to seeing Megaman Star Force classified in the genre of “Magical Boy.” (I mean we all know the official name of the genre is “Magical Girl” but that’s not the point.)

Granted I missed it during my childhood as well, but looking back, Geo Stelar is without a doubt the mahou shoujo Mega Man, I mean look at the facts:

-Young main character meets a non-human entity who gives them the power to transform (with a transformation sequence every single time)
-Follows a Monster of the Week format like 80% of the time
-True power comes from The Power of Friendship

Was I listing aspects of the mahou shoujo genre or Mega Man Star Force? Trick question because they’re the same!!

And now that I’m finally watching Sailor Moon, I kind of want to write a crossover fanfic where Usagi and Geo team up or something and I feel like someone should stop me but it would work

Mahou Shoujo Mega Man dang now I feel like that would make a good screen name

Poetry Again

Posted by Virus #0579 , Sep 02 2014 · 74 views

New semester is...going...and some poetry has come up in my English classes. Once again, talking about poetry made me want to attempt some, and the result is this.

Since I'm not the best with poetry, I didn't put a whole lot of thought into line length and none of it rhymes or anything like that, but I wanted to try messing with the style a little bit. Several letters throughout the poem have been removed or replaced with symbols that may or may not resemble the intended letter, and there are a few other miscellaneous format alterations here and there. I wanted to try bringing out the idea of "broken" just by looking at the text.

I had also considered arranging the words in such a way that they formed the shape of a Kanohi with a scar in it or something, but I don't have the patience for something like that. Oh well.

I Bravely Second the Motion

Posted by Virus #0579 , Aug 29 2014 · 157 views

I'm probably getting booed off stage for that title huh

Bravely Second is releasing in Japan this winter! I haven’t really said anything about the information we’ve gotten thus far, so this seems like a good time to catch up. Oh, yeah, this probably will have Bravely Default spoilers.

World! So we’ll be back in Luxendarc, but there will be new areas. Sounds good—should provide a nice blend between familiar and new. It’ll be interesting to see how all the countries have progressed. Ancheim did have its king killed, so I’m wondering if they got a new one, or if they reworked their government, or…what. I’m also hoping that all that lava around Hartschild got cleared out so that we’ll be able to walk into the Fire Temple without trekking through mines and secret tunnels every single time. As for new areas, since Magnolia is apparently from the moon, I should hope we get to visit and see rabbits everywhere, though I guess we’ll have to wait to hear about that.

Characters! Well, we don’t really know a whole lot about Magnolia yet, so I don’t know if I can really form an opinion. She seems like she’ll be an interesting character, though. Speaking of which, if we’re bringing Tiz back, I seriously hope he gets some more development. I can kind of understand why he’s presented in such a generic fashion after making sense of the ending, but it’s still sort of disappointing. (Course, since Bravely Default has the same writer as Steins;Gate I’m probably comparing him to Kyouma and that’s not even fair.) Agnes! Agnes is the pope! Pope Agnes, everybody! She’s reformed the Orthodoxy and led the world and…got…captured…? What? What about the 24 Jobs she mastered and used to defeat the ultimate evil and save every world? With that much power, shouldn’t she be able to beat up anyone who tries to capture her?? This makes me nervous about what else this new writer might put in, but eh, we’ll see…hopefully she’ll join the party again and kick some more butt. They’re the only ones who are confirmed, I guess; I really hope we get to see Edea again, and that she’s in charge of Eternia and is even more awesome and everything. As for Ringabel…well, I’m curious to know what exactly happens to him, since the ending didn’t make it clear, but unless he gets those annoying traits under control I don’t exactly want him to be major. Party of Magnolia, Agnes, Edea, and (more interesting) Tiz, please!

Jobs! We’ve been told the game will have both new and returning Jobs, and we’ve seen some of Magnolia’s outfits. What have we got confirmed…Red Mage, Time Mage, Performer, and Valkyrie. If Red Mage is here, I can only imagine that White and Black Mage will come back as well, and obviously Freelancer will be here. I believe somebody counted the number of dots on the Job Select screen in the trailer and said we’ll have 30 Jobs? Assuming all of the old Jobs are returning (which they might not), that means we’ll be getting at least 6 new Jobs! Maybe more, if some of the old Jobs are removed. I got sort of attached to most if not all of the old Jobs, so I sort of want to see them all back. Probably too soon to start guessing new Jobs, but I did see Magnolia using guns in one of the trailers, and apparently Gunner is a Job in the (Japan-exclusive) Bravely Default social game…hmhmhmhm. Turns out that social game also has Mystic and Sage (and Warrior, but that’s too basic to really pay attention to IMO); I don’t really know what to say about Mystic, but if Sage is the same as it is in most Final Fantasy titles, I definitely want that in Bravely Second. It could very easily be used as a Red Mage-augmenting Job, similar to how Spiritmaster and Arcanist work for White Mage and Black Mage. Then again…that means we’ll have to fight a Sage…oh. Which reminds me, I think it was said that the Asterisk holders would be returning? But…most of them died? So unless there’s some new kind of time-wimey nonsense or we’re pulling characters from other worlds, they probably mean we’ll be getting new Asterisk holders, just that the idea of fighting the holders to get Jobs will be returning, right? Because there are several of those original Asterisk holders who I was very glad to kill off. I mean, some were cool, yeah, but some of those fiends need to just stay dead. Oh, and Summons! Will the old Summons return? If so, will they have different animations/effects? Will there be new Summons?! I really like the style of Bravely Default’s Summons, so I’d like to see them make some new cool ones too.

I wonder if we’ll get something similar to Rebuilding Norende? Or if Airy’s sister will be explained? Or if Bravely Second (the gameplay mechanic, that is) will be better explained/more related to the plot since this game is named after it? There’s a lot we won’t know until it’s released, I guess. Must resist spoilers and await the NA release…!! Maybe late 2015? Dang, it’s not even September and the Games to Buy in 2015 (and Beyond) list is already starting. (Well, if “Beyond” is included, then I guess that already started last summer…)

Well, here’s hoping it’s good. While dropping Bravely from my Series to Buy list would certainly free up some more cash, it’d be very sad after how much I enjoyed Bravely Default…

The Twelve Queens

Posted by Virus #0579 , Aug 25 2014 · 69 views
Divine Strength
Work on Divine Strength continues. I just finished chapter five, the bulk of which can be read here (be warned, it's rather long). This scene involves all twelve Queens coming together in neutral territory to discuss the main threat of the story and how they will each deal with it. The same general material was covered in the prototype story Conference of Divinity, which has been posted both here and on Tumblr if you want to compare them.

And now I'm a little stuck. The next major event I have planned is the alliance moving into Roche, as in the prototype story Alignment, but I'm not sure if I should go straight to that or insert another event or two first. After that, I do have an idea of what happens next, but the further ahead I go the vaguer my plans get. Ah well, I guess I just need to keep at it and see what happens.

Anniversary #0579

Posted by Virus #0579 , Aug 19 2014 · 95 views

Wait…have I really been here ten years?

Dang.

I was hoping to do some sort of special story thing for my 10th, but I couldn’t get a decent idea together. Ah well.

Hm, what have I accomplished in these ten years…? Well, I’m not an especially prominent member. I can’t say that I’ve participated in any momentous events, and both my proto and post count are less than what you’d probably expect from a ten-year member. Doesn’t seem like I’ve done a whole lot.

But, my member title is “Bionicle Writer of the Month.”

I know it’s seriously not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but the simple fact that one of my stories (heck, more than one!) was considered good enough to win a contest and be featured on the front page just…feels like a wonderful accomplishment. It implies that my writing has improved over these ten years, and that alone makes the whole stay worth it, I think.

So thanks for putting up with me for a whole decade, BZP! I hope we can continue to coexist.
