yoshigali asked: Alvin and Leia and pirates!
He was another unremarkable-from-the-rest aristocrat brat captured in order to coerce his family to shell out as much money as possible for his safe return - guard duty should have just been another part of the daily routine. However, when it was her turn and the flirtatious remarks that made her honestly blush came just as rapidly as the cunning little digs that managed to oh-so-perfectly get under her skin, she couldn’t help but wonder:
A pommel blow to the head strong enough to knock him out for a few hours would still count as a ‘safe return’, right?
Tales of Xillia 2 made me angry. Then it made me sad. Then it made me angry again (for different reasons than the first time).
Now I’m just confused.
To not deal with all those conflicting feeling up there, I wanted to write a fluffy, warm thing that involved little to no of Alvin and Leia’s usual snark. I guess this is it?
Jude…is a (male) bird coming onto you?
I’m pretty sure that a (male) bird is coming onto you.
O.o; And I don’t think anyone can explain why it’s making you angry when no one knows why and what you’re angry with in the first place >_> I’m still waiting for the game to be released in the US T__T
Haha, true true.
But now I’m very interested to see what people’s reaction to it will be in the English speaking world (I still honestly believe that few people [if any] will have the same reaction as me, but I could easily be proven wrong).
Oh dear. Is it of the sort where I shouldn’t play it myself? Or a different sort of angry?
No no no, I’m not saying that at all!
Sure, there are gameplay elements that miff me or other things that I could gripe about in this game. However, I don’t really think it’s enough to say ‘don’t play this game’, particularly if you were a fan of the first game.
I’m not even sure what I’m talking about will make other people angry. I think it’s just annoys me because what it implies about a certain character (both within the development process and them as a character within the game), the inherent message contained within the action, and what that implies about the over-arching story as a whole.
I honestly get the feeling though that most people are gonna get to that scene and go “…Why does this make you mad?”
Haha, it’s difficult to talk about this while avoiding spoiling anything.
…should I be worried? lol
Worried that the game will make you angry as well or worried because I’m angry and no one is quite sure what that will lead to?
Either way, the answer is perhaps.
Just know that if you wake up tomorrow and ‘Tales of Xillia Twoooooooooooo’ has been key-scratched into your wall, I had nothing to do with it.
My anger at Tales of Xillia 2 is firmly within the ‘irrational’ range. I could not explain to any of you why I feel this way (hence why it’s in the ‘irrational’ range) but the annoyance has not subsided in the least. It’s not even that I’m annoyed with a particular character; I’m just angry at the game as a whole and I could not for the life of me explain why I am feeling this way.
But I am. I really, really am. I just want to punch the game in its non-existent face.
