You know, I buy Darksiders 1 yesterday (7€, not bad) and while it installs/loads I play Lufia 2 to pass the time. And what happens, obviously?

I spent the night playing Lufia 2. 8D (What can I say, Lufia is just superior)

And wrote a Tia/Hilda piece. Don't ask me why. For some reason it seemed like a good idea and now I love it. The conversation in Tanbel isn't even shippy. Nothing, just two textboxes of banter about Guy and Maxim.

But Hilda would be a great match for Tia. Hilda's an inn owner (probably together with Guy, I guess, but she manages it almost on her own) and Tia owns a shop. Tia might not want to live in Elcid after Maxim's death and Tanbel is so close! And she could easily work in the inn and Hilda knows what Tia went through, because she was also involved at one point. And Hilda is not a warrior so Tia doesn't have to worry. They could happily manage the inn together.


(That's pretty much what my fic is. It's so cute. I love them.)

And now that I'm replaying Lufia, I gotta say I love almost all of the characters. Maxim, Tia and Selan are amazing. Guy is cool too. Dekar is stupid, but alright. I don't remember much about the others (oops) now, but they were alright as well. I'm astonished that I fell in love with the game all over again.

PS: Also bought the new Subway to Sally album. Love it <3

It's a Driftloon. <3

I've just finished "The Last Story". And it was amazing 8D The beginning was a bit hard, because it takes some time to get used to the battle system (it's easier with a Classic Controller, imo), but after the first hour or two the story picks up. And boy, it does. It seems so "innocent" at first and then things happen (and awesome characters appear; Asthar (<3 See Icon) and Therius). There's a little romance, but it's not too strong, imo. At times I even forgot about it and catagorized the interaction between the two as friendshippy, which is good, imo. Gives the relationship more depth. The synchro is also good. And twists. Nice twists.

The animation is good, overall, apart from most mouth animation. It can be... quite strange at times (again see icon). Smiles are often strange (poor Therius, he got the worst). I don't know if it was just my Wii or if it's normally, but there was some lagging, especially during cut scenes that were no mini-movies. That was sad because during emotional or important scene it was distracting. The colouring of the whole world is rather dark (mostly brown, dulled white, grey, black, etc.), which is fitting because the situation the world is in is not particularly good.

The music is really good. I've bought the Special Edition with a soundtrack and it's really pretty. Nobuo Uematsu did great work. Very pretty.

Now some very biased opinions:

- *Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee* General Asthar <333 Hit so many "this will be a favourite" spots it's ridiculous. That he got a sexy voice certainly helped.

- Oh god, how did I love to run into people XD Because you don't just get caught by their box, but no! you actually run them over and push them to the side and sometimes they yell at you and stuff. XD SO hilarious. How easily something like that can bring the Evil out of me~

- Two main characters with eyepatches. Do I have to say more?

- Syrenne and Lowell seemed very stereotypically and boring at the beginning, but in the end I love them very much. So cute those two~

Fazit: Would definitely recommend it to other RPG loving people (and you could very probably write issue-fic about the war-traumatized people in this 8D)
