This series seeks to trace the influences and inspirations behind fighting game characters. To begin with, we will start with Capcom’s Street Fighter, which is the most popular example of a fighting game that works with an international cast of characters as a framework for inspiration.
August 3, 2016: In the Temple of Light, Lightning found Fang killing monsters. How did she get there ahead of Light?
Vanille sounds… different.
Light and Fang convinced Vanille to listen to the souls. She realized that they didn’t want to be destroyed, but the High Priestess tried to force her to finish the Soulsong anyway.
May 14, 2016: Helped a researcher piece together a flight recorder, but we couldn’t really make sense of what was on it. A pilot screamed mayday and saw something “impossible”. It sounded like a girl coughing. If it was the moment that the Chaos spewed forth from the temple, it could have been the Yeuls. Light and the researcher wondered if it was Etro.

May 8, 2016: To get the clavis, you need a special crux. To get the pieces of the special crux, you need to see the three murals in the ruins. To see the murals, you need tablets from the shrines strewn across the Dunes.
God must have wanted the Savior to do all this. But why? To prove their worth?
Fang says she and Light work better against gods, not with them.
May 3, 2016: Once again, Light recognized a love that should have been there. In one of the loading screens, she realizes that she has no idea what happened to “the heart I tried so hard to hide”.
Unlocked Expert Stylist. 16/42
When Light feeds Bartz, she may say, “Kweh kweh.” It’s cute. Continue reading Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Part Seven: God’s Plan
Originally, I loved this game, despite the gameplay becoming a little exasperating/tiring. I liked the sheer number of battle options better than Persona 3‘s, although I also felt like trimming the fat was a good thing, too. I liked P3‘s characters and story better. The story in P3 feels deeper, and succeeds in reaching for its epic scope. I also wished there was voice acting throughout P2: IS, like P3. You don’t just leave Troy Baker (Eikichi), Patrick Seitz (Nyarlathotep), and Wendee Lee (Maya) lying around!
April 27, 2012: Damn, Maya’s father was hot!
Masataka Amano was a war correspondent. Before Maya met the other kids and established the Masked Circle, Masataka prepared to leave Japan to cover a war. Maya made a stuffed rabbit for him and called it Mr. Bunbun, but he refused to take it. Her father told her that if she cried, Mr. Bunbun would laugh at her. Masataka told her that he would accept Mr. Bunbun when he returned home, but he died before he could make it back.
February 1, 2012: Leo Temple
“Hades- The king of Tartarus in Greek lore.” Huh…
November 22, 2011: Discovered a new Fusion Spell: Maxi Tempest!
Where’s that Trish when you need her?
It takes more than clockwork Nazi bootlickers to keep us down!
November 8, 2011: Let’s Defeat (?) King Leo
King Leo went on and on about how Nahui-Ollin and the Oracle of Maia had been forgotten. He said that Joker’s face is as beautiful as a goddess. Lisa seemed to suspect that Joker was “Big Sis”.
Long story short: We had to commandeer a blimp and defeat King Leo. He wasn’t even as tough as Ixquic. Continue reading Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Innocent Sin Part Four
