[NSFW] … of the Month: Unsexy
I thought to write an article chastising you all for being such terrible, terrible people for what I now refer to simply as W.C. 2011, but a few things have happened that have set me on a different course. One, it’s been months since that tragedy, and, as with any months-old tragedy, I’ve mostly forgotten about it. Two, I have something much more future-relevant I’d like to talk about.

  • … of the Month: Star Ocean: The Second Story

    Don't let the name fool you, this game stands on its own, meaning you won't have to have played the first one to understand what is going on (which is convenient, since the first one wasn't released outside of Japan, as far as I know). Star Ocean has a customizable battle mode where you can choose if you want to fight in more of a classic RPG style, or a style which involved a lot more free movement and decision making. You can create various items such as armors, weapons, accessories, and items from raw materials you find using skills you gain on your journey. The story itself develops in different ways depending on the decisions you make (the most important of which being what which main character you will choose to control, Claude or Rena), and what mini-events you choose to participate in.
