I got to talking to Sarah a while back and she and I realized just how many alternate forms of ourselves we've self inserted over the years. So basically I was wondering just how many times have you guys done this? Cuz I highly doubt it's nowhere near the amount of times I have

I think everyone does this from time to time. That's why we gravitate to characters that we can see ourselves in, or use to express parts of ourselves that we may or may not feel like we can show to the waking world.

Yes, but then there are those ((which I'm guilty)) of us that also do it to exercise our brain. This is especially true when it comes to the entire Hellsing family I created for the fictitious city of Bridgeport, NY

I've made some characters for skyrim that follow the same formula of thief (and ignoring that the player is the dragonborn), but she essentially becomes princess of thieves because that's all "badass" as the kids call it now a days. I guess I always like being sneaky or something like that, so I try to make characters that are rangers, or stealth based because it's more fun to write different scenarios ad infinitum. I think the only real media I made characters with was Sims, but even then there's no depth to add a story i guess? I'm also a sucker for that type of "No electricity here, only swords and monster slaying" series of games, like I tried to make a witcher character, until I realized I had half made Ciri and didn't intend to. I don't like to run in bluntly, so it shaves a lot of possible options, and then I don't like games like fallout usually, so there goes a total genre, like mass effect it's out too because it's too futuristic.
I'm just a picky person, but I always fall back on what I am the strongest in. That's why i write rogues out so well and people with sarcastic personalities because it's fun to do that.

I'm not much on branching into blind territory in which I know next to very little about. Especially trades such as home repairs, mechanics (lol I would say this after changing Leah over to Cindy) or some other form of physically demanding work. But with Cindy, I at least want to try
I mean I don't really know too much about Final fantasy except from the small ounce of crisis core I played and those charming final fantasy 3 games they made for the DS when the characters weren't even... recognizable? I dunno. I just can't get in the head of a warrior or a mage, unless it's a specific type of magic, but even then I feel like I've been conditioned to never be a mage as they're usually "forbidden" or "illegal" so it's either you play as a legal rouge or mouth breather warrior, or you say "oh hell let's do this" and be a mage (in a game respectively) and then regret your choices and decisions when you get called out by every form of regulation and rule in the city you're in and you're really regretting the fact your rogue friend talked you into finding that special cache but in fact it was an ambush and they too, have a "oh crap" look on their face.
True, or we could just get a dragon age board all of our own and get people and start a thing there? Ha is this against the rules to be thinking/typing something like this out? I feel like this is a no no but I know Dragon age like the back of my hand despite not finishing all three games.
Reno: Yo. What's up people?

Tifa Lockhart: Someone should have warned me before sitting down to watch Kingsglaive. Now all I can think about is Nyx Nyx Nyx ! Dammit Nyx! Well him, and Crowe. I adore the hell out of her. Too bad they...nah I wont' say

Reno: Kingsglaive? Oh god that fucking movie. Nothing in that movie was ever mentioned in the game. At least I don't think it was. I played it a year ago and remember thinking, "IS ANYBODY GONNA MENTION NYX?! NO?! WELL FUCK YOU THEN!"

Reno: Also, FF15 was shaping up to be my favorite FF of all time. Then the second half happened and squandered all the potential it had for its story and lore. I could see how it was originally going to be 3 games.

Tifa Lockhart: Yeah I agree about the 2nd half fully fucking everything over, but I still follow Robbie and tune into their podcast when they stream live. It was funny as hell to watch all the VA's get together and play their own game. Especially Adam(c)

Tifa Lockhart: Screaming, "That's it! I've come up with a new recipe!" Well that, and they all sang Stand By Me towards the end. That was really bittersweet. But anyways,glad you're not dead ;p lol hell of a greeting but it's true
Nov 6, 2017 9:29:40 GMT -5
Tifa Lockhart: Oh yeah, duh. There are ties but they are very scarce throughout the playthrough of XV that ties Kingsglaive into it. I don't want to say too much, but the next time you get to the point that Noct is back in the throne room towards the end? Look up. That
Nov 7, 2017 13:51:08 GMT -5
Tifa Lockhart: is quite possibly the worst tie to Kingsglaive they could have given. But there are also others too. I fucking hate letter limits, but yeah it's there. Just have to look for them

Cloud Strife: That's always the problem with trying to create an expanded universe before you've even established rule 1 about it... Gotta let me get to know your world before it's got eight different "source" materials.

Tifa Lockhart: So I finally got around to pre-ordering the remake and it was funny cuz I go into gamestop talking about all these other games and I randomly walk up to the register and whip out my Darth Vader (yeah i know) debit card and say cheerfully,

Tifa Lockhart: "I'm here to put money down on my baby" The guy looks at me like i'm trippin' which most of the time I am. But I got the 80 buck one, not the most expensive although if i would have waited on my damn taxes I could have easily afforded

Sephiroth: Naw, the $329.00 was a Square-Enix online store exclusive that sold out within hours of going up for pre-order, so the $80 deluxe edition is the "best" version we can get at this point without paying disgusting premiums by resellers.
Feb 1, 2020 21:10:03 GMT -5
Tifa Lockhart: Then it's a good thing I wasn't so beat up over not getting it. I'm good having the 80 dollar one honestly. Just so long as I get my own PS 4 before April whatever the date is, i'm good because sharing the one downstairs is not gonna work for as many hours
