Mini-guide: Xillia 2’s Pluto

Disclaimer: I wrote this 2 years ago and originally wanted it contributed to a much fuller guide. Since it still hasn’t seen the light of day, here it is:

This is tough @_@. Golden Mage Knight got nothing on Pluto and Eternity ;_;
Anyways, I like to play as Milla so I select her for the playable character. However, that shouldn’t change the strategy I will tell in a moment. If you play multiplayer, I wouldn’t suggest having more than 2 people on this fight so that you can take advantage of linked combat. Maybe you can take turns if you have a non-AI party of 2+.

Review: Mass Effect Trilogy

Apologies for being so late to the game. I don’t normally play American games as you may know. But I think this series requires some discussion. By the way, this is why no new content has been published here and why I haven’t worked on my book in a month. Not sorry because it was worth it. Joseph Gordon-Levitt said something akin to “no idea is original and all ideas are born off other ideas”.

I’m going to assume you didn’t and explain to you as if you haven’t played it.

The Gamer Girl Fetish

This one’s been bothering me lately and I wonder if it’s been bothering anyone else so I thought I’d write about it.

Recently, I got to know a group of guys that work across the street from where I work. Where they work is where I used to like writing my book. One of them eventually asked, “Where do you get the inspiration from?” and I replied, “The games that I played growing up and continue to play”. Suddenly, my cool levels in their eyes shot through the roof.

Faults and Sin

As you may know, I greatly enjoy Japanese culture. I don’t watch too much anime as I mainly play their video games. However, I wait each month for the new chapters to come out for my favourite ongoing shonen: Noragami (ノラがミ).
My favourite character, Kazuma, makes an assertion that the servants of the gods (shinki/神器) don’t sin if they believe it was in the best interest of their god. In other words, it’s okay to do bad things if you think it’s right (for those in ethics: ends justify the means). It took me some time to come to that interpretation of his words and also my response.
