        basically that character is an amalgam of this girls dead father and a collection of moles the girl liked to keep as pets that were resurrected and combined using a spell the girl found in a book. Prithviraj himself looks like a giant mole with clothes. Being a mole, he can't talk, but part of its Brain still belong to the girl's father, so he continues to protect and look after her even in this form.

        The other seven include a woman knight with a weapon where one of her arms is, youngboy scholar who practices Magic, an African American priest who uses a giant crucifix, a recently deceased faulconer's pet bird, a man who uses the giant Club of an Oni that terrorized him, a futuristic roller derby girl with jet powered skates and a reptilian seer from another world.

        Not much better in my opinion. Granted, I've never played a Persona game except for Persona 4 Arena, but that's basically because I've had no interest in the franchise. It just seems like another generic JRPG with a generic story and characters.

        Look on the bright side: We now know that *anyone* can buy their way into Smash!

        Also, I'll give Persona credit for not being generic, however that doesn't excuse how its plot run on how the writers have no clue how anyone in the world actually thinks. Persona 5 in particular is a game about how literally everyone who doesn't think like you deserves to be brainwashed.

        a lot of them have similar plots, similar characters, similar enemies, usually has a cat eared person, almost always poorly written, the main characters are usually Gary Stus and the games usually follow other stereotypes as well. I've played and reviewed the story of a lot of RPG is, and most of them regardless of popularity have been pretty shallow in my opinion.

        @Mystic_Enigma honestly, the games themselves are amazing, but geez if only Spyro knew the type of creatures he was serving.

        some of the level cutscenes are pretty questionable, though you might like the idol Springs and turtle level endings. Those two are actually kind of heartwarming because they include the good guys and the bad guys becoming buddies with each other.

        If you really want to get technical then they are both. Vegetable is a culinary term, not a scientific one. Culinarily speaking tomatoes and peppers are vegetables even as scientifically speaking they are fruits. They don't fit the culinary definition for fruits and there is no scientific definition for vegetables, thus they are both simultaneously.

        The running out of ideas is what people say every new gen. Then, a few months into it, people are suddenly OK with the new gen, and then the cycle repeats when the next gen gets announced.

        honestly this is the first time I've actually said that personally.

        I'm just hoping at least one of the starters this generation isn't going to turn into a freaking stick figure again like the last two generations. In fact, a lighter hand on Stick Figure Pokemon in general, and make Pokemon besides stick figures competitively viable please.

        No, I do not like frail-looking designs.

        I feel we have had worse designs in Gen 1, even when I don't like Meltan too much

        Besides, it looks like Meltan will be something like Zygarde cells, when there will be much of them together, they'll fuse into another form... Basically Zygarde-Complete 2.0

        @Mystic_Enigma guess it all hinges on your definition of the word monster doesn't it ;)
        Here's the Latin version
        mōnstrum n (genitive mōnstrī); second declension

        a divine omen indicating misfortune, an evil omen, portent
        (metonymically) a monster, monstrosity, whether in size or character
        (figuratively) a thing that evokes fear and wonder

        Science can't do that, it's always correcting its own ignorance. Recently we've discovered through dna that there are actually a lot less subspecies in the world than previously believed and that many (sometimes 100s) of what we thought were individual animals were actually the same species and that their external differences were purely environmental adaptation rather than distinct evolutionary tracts.

        The correct category is actually no category. We categorizing/classifying things so we can understand better. If it's like this, it must be this. But, living creature is just a complex chemical reaction that we havent yet understand it.

        If the shoe fits. But "Narcissistic" is better used to describe an individual who cares way too much about themselves or how they look and nothing else. If you want to refer to media or some other force, "Pretentious" might fit better.

        It's nothing groundbreaking, just your standard reincarnated hero of light fighting legendary evil spiel.

        Gameplay is patently dragon quest; bout as inovative as they've gone is replace random encounters with on the map ones.

        That said I've been enjoying dq11 so far. It's nice to see a mainstream title continue to embrace turn-based in a world where almost all AAA RPGs are arpgs tbh. I like both but I'll be the first to admit that game sold itself to me on nostalgia alone, of course, that's also what lead me here as well. :D
