    Doing whatever interests me really....right now, I'm writing a video game review, I may take a stab at writing fiction novels (basically just novelizations of games I really like), I'm studying a martial arts style that's a mixture of Bruce Lees style and a style that my Sensei designed specifically for surviving the violence and crimes of todays environment (my Sensei is a retired police officer! ^__^), and I'm also doing every weight lifting and running program my school offers me. I also surf forums to discuss any and all discussions that interest me and are conversations I actually have something interesting to say about, and I'm also involved in writing a walkthrough for Final Fantasy. My aspiration is either to be a video game designer, martial arts teacher, writer, or a politician that benefits the world.

  1. That's actually along the lines of what I was thinking—that the only way to beat someone like Gullveig (who can literally rewind time, teleport, regenerate, and disintegrate with just a touch) is to get someone else who can match her abilities. So if I were writing this... My chapters would go something like this: Chapter 10: Njorder keeps cackling maniacally, ranting about the futility of resisting fate. They're screwed—so why not just lie down and die? Put themselves out of their misery, instead of dragging it out? He proceeds to flatten the party with his full power. Only the timely intervention of Nerthuz allows them to escape. Thus a long string of fights, all the while with Seidr struggling with her curse... Chapter 11: Seidr is barely hanging on... But, something's bothering her. Why can't she remember anything about her past? Then, Gullveig shows up to engage you in another series of battles. Throughout each, she keeps dropping bread crumbs about what Seidr's mysterious past might be. Eventually, when Seidr is at her lowest, Gullveig reawakens her memories... The awful truth within. See her hair color? How it's like a mix of Njorder's platinum blue and Nerthuz's pink? Well, that's because Seidr had a mother as well—the sister of Nerthuz, in fact! Nerthuz isn't Njorder's sister by blood, but by marriage! Now, said mother was the original target of the Golden Seer's curse. She was the one who gave Seidr her inspirational saying about hope, in fact! But, for whatever reason (whether it be punishment for an ancient sin or just an inevitable prophecy or whatever), the curse is targeting their line. So... Njorder killed her. He did so in an attempt to prevent her from becoming Gullveig, as he feared she would. Seidr either witnessed it first hand, or was otherwise traumatized at the loss... So, Njorder wiped her memories. Nerthuz was pretty angry about that, of course. So angry, she stole Njorder's Ar, as revenge for what he did to her sister. Still, that bit of nastiness aside, all seemed good for a time... Until the curse mysteriously appeared on her—it seems that slaying the original carrier just meant that it hopped to the next person in line. What's more... Her memories awakened... And the memory of Njorder killing her mom was precisely what she didn't need to hang on to her humanity. On the road Past!Njorder took to avoid certain doom... He caused it instead! That's what his conversation with Kvasir was all about! So, present timeline Seidr finally gives in to despair, and becomes the new Gullveig. The old Gullveig, satisfied with this outcome, waltzes on back to the future—she's already won, after all... Right? Chapter 12: This one is all about trying to get Seidr back—to this end, the gang recruits Nerthuz. And thus, after a harrowing series of fights, Kiran, Alfonse, and everyone else helps Seidr regain herself through the power of love, friendship, and Nerthuz's pink energy. She is thus reborn as Seidrveig! And guess what? Seidrveig retains all of her new powers! At last, someone in the party can fight Gullveig on her own terms! But, their work isn't done yet! Gullveig's eventually going to figure out what happened, so the gang needs to hotfoot it to the place where it all began... The day Njorder slew Seidr's mom. Nerthuz can't come with, as two people can't occupy the same point in time (which is why Gullveig reincarnated as Kvasir, and sent Seidr back before she wiped her memory)... So, they head off. They do so, and after their gone... Njorder shows up on the scene. "Have they gone back?" He asks. "Yes they have." Nerthuz answers. Njorder bows his head and closes his eyes, in solemn silence... "...So it shall be..." Chapter 1: By this point, Gullveig's figured out what's happened, and she's not happy about it. She and Kvasir go back to engage the party in one last battle. Kvasir is fought and redeemed, past!Njorder is slain, and then finally comes the super-mega-ultimate battle between Seidrveig and Gullveig! Then when all that nonsense is done, Seidrveig absorbs the curse afflicting her mom. She's already conquered it, after all. So now the day is saved! Hooray! But, one last scene... Epilogue: So, the party comes back to the present... And sees Njorder on the ground, semi-transluscent and fading fast. Yet, expression is what surprises them most... Then comes a big exposition dump... King Njorder couldn't stop the curse. No matter how many different timelines he peered through with his Ar, he could not find any way of preventing the transformation. Even if he killed the current carrier of the curse, it would just transfer over to someone else. So, there was only one logical conclusion... The curse had to be overcome from the inside. But, doing so was going to take tremendous strength of will—far more than could be expected of anyone, much less an emotionally vulnerable young goddess like Seidr. So instead of trying to stop the transformation, Njorder made it happen at the most advantageous time! And thus... The quest he and Nerthuz constructed—as well as the vow he compelled Seidr to make with Kiran. See, the child was only half of what was important about it. The other purpose behind it was to forge a bond between the two that would be ever strengthened by each new trial and hardship. In this way, and with her own newfound maturity, Seidr would find the support structure and inner strength needed to overcome the Golden Seer's curse. This was a risky gamble... But it was also the only way Gullveig wouldn't feel the need to interfere. After all, she could never comprehend someone actually reversing the curse! Heidr's death was an unfortunate necessity for keeping up this nihilistic facade... But, if all went well, she would be reborn anyway. At any rate, Njorder had to play the villain—otherwise, Gullveig might have suspected something. Plus, Seidr and co. might have hesitated to slay him in the past. And... He needs to atone for his crimes—his ruthlessness was part of why they got in this mess, after all. He then vanishes away... And at that moment, Heidr is born, curse free. It's was as though Njorder had traded his life for hers... Seidr rules on as the new queen of the land, with her mother and Heidr alive and well at her side. She bids a fond farewell to Kiran and friends, who then go on to their next adventure. The end.
  2. @Mercakete I'm going to lose my place if I individually quote everything in these large walls of text, so I'll make my response a bit more general. Trailer Discrepancies in Heroes I'll be honest—I'm completely new to Heroes in general. I know absolutely nothing of what happened in Books 1-6, apart from some proper nouns of important NPCs. The only reason I discovered Book 7 was because I saw a Twitter post of the "Would you create a child with me?" line, and though "Whoa... What's the context behind that?!" So if the trailers have a habit of being misleading, then I could very well be tying myself in knots over nothing. I apologize in advance. The Mindset of Gullveig: I had a completely different read on her, actually. To me, she's like Sephiroth—a cold-hearted sociopath who likes acting high and mighty, but lets the mask slip every so often to revel in her victims' despair. I mean... Just look at her expressions (albeit from the trailers). We have... Psychotic Grin Before Murdering Alfonse: Mocking Caress Before Killing Kiran (and possible soul stealing): Satisfied Smirk as She Watches Him Disintegrate Predatory Smile As She's Manipulating an Emotionally Vulnerable Girl And then when their deaths are somehow undone in the 1st trailer, and Seidr somehow shows up uncorrupted... Gullveig reacts like this: That, to me, is not the look of someone who wants to be stopped. That's the look of someone who's angry these insects won't stay dead when she kills them. ----------------------------- Of course, if the trailers tend to be as misleading as you say, then you could indeed interpret all of Gullveig's words and actions through the lens of someone full of sorrow and despair (as her in-game portrait has a much more neutral expression). But, I always interpreted them through the lens of someone who just likes screwing with her victims (like with her pretending to be defeated in Chapter 13 as well as her messing with Veronica for no visible gain). Really though, if Gullveig turns out to not want to kill things, despite the 1st trailer showing us otherwise... I'm going to feel pretty miffed >_> . About Nerthuz Yes, you can explain most of her behavior just via her encountering everyone in the past... But what gets me is "Why would she give the Ar away so easily"? If Njorder was such a vile person (and she would know), then surely she would have kept it instead? That's part of why I feel like Njorder himself is also part of the plan to stop Gullveig—otherwise, she wouldn't have let it go under any circumstances. Also, my point about Kvasir is that she probably kept close enough tabs to realize that Kvasir grows up into Seidr, which itself is a pretty big tip-off to what's going on. That was my only point for #3. About Njorder Being a Very Careful Actor and Planner: I'll admit, I didn't think about him also having time travel powers... But yes, he most likely does, if he can grant Seidr that power so easily. At any rate, him being so guarded with his emotions, and him constantly encouraging his...daughter(?)...to be the same is part of why I'm thinking he's still got a surprise or two in store for us. Perhaps something that will shock even Gullveig (perhaps he'll do something uncharacteristically loving or self-sacrificial that completely messes up the plan). Would My Idea Be a Good Twist?: I just don't like the idea of the "twist" being that the obvious bad guy was indeed the obvious bad guy. The only reason to think otherwise would be a brief interaction in the past, and a trailer that turned out to be full of hogwash. The latter would lose a lot of good will with me. How Could Gullveig Be Defeated?: Mortal Kombat 11 actually had a pretty good answer for this question, with a main villain (Kronika) that had basically the exact same abilities as Gullveig. Conversation is here at 4:13... https://youtu.be/9EcDErjIbnw?t=253 Long story short, Raiden here (one of two heroes) figures out that Kronika had been restarting time over and over again as part of her diabolical plan—and in each timeline, she kept him from joining forces with Liu Kang (the other hero). The details of each timeline were different, but the end result was always the same—his utter failure. She bragged about that to Raiden, confident that even having revealed her plan and the way to defeat her, he would still have no hope. After all... "Do you think this is the first time [you've discovered my plans]? We have repeated this exact conversation so often, in so many timelines, I have lost count... We have played out all possible scenarios, Raiden. You cannot win. You are welcome to try, of course..." Unfortunately for her, however... This Raiden later did something completely unexpected—something that he never thought to do in all of those previous timelines. Turns out, all those seemingly insignificant details mattered after all. Kronika got complacent, didn't double-check the results of the game's current timeline (since nothing's ever changed before), and paid the price for it. My guess is, something similar happens here. Gullveig foresaw the point that Seidr would transform into her in this timeline, and never looked beyond that. But then it turns out that the bond between Kiran & Seidr, as well as Nerthuz's pink energy, is strong enough that Seidr actually undoes the transformation—something Gullveig would have never thought possible. And by the time she realizes what's happened, it's already too late—our heroes are already on their way to stopping her once and for all.
  3. If that was the case, I would expect him to be more nihilistic and cold about it, rather than maniacally ranting. Besides, there's quite a bit that doesn't add up: 1) In Chapter 6, Gullveig's forces are attacking Heidr while she's out alone. He warns the party of this, and thus saves her. But that begs the question of "why are they attacking the lynch pin to their plan" and "why would Njordr let her be running around exposed"? 2) Nerthuz's very first reaction to Seidr is "Y-you! My, my...". When Shareena asks what that's about, Nerthuz brushes it off by saying she was surprised at how adorable they all are... But she also lets this slip: "Aw! Just adorable! Look at your little faces... Cute even when you haven't a clue what's happening..." And then also basically tells the party "Look, we're going to meet in the past and you're going to need something from me--here's what to say when we do". Afterwards, the scene ends with her saying" I will see you darlings again... someday... " It's exceedingly obvious that she knows a lot more about what's happening, and what's about to happen, than she's letting on. 3) Related to that, it's clear that her past self had noticed that Kvasir. "...Hm? What's this? Someone else has traveled through time here to Vanaheimr?" Meaning she's had to have sussed things out at some point. 4) If King Njorder was truly in on it from the start... Then Gullveig had absolutely no need (that I can think of) to show up in Chapter 8. Seidr would have just done the Rite of Light, gone home, found her sister cursed beyond saving, killed her, then ended up exactly how she is now. 5) It's clear from his conversation with Kvasir that he thought Gullveig was bad news--so it's really not clear what he would actually gain from summoning her preemptively, unless he believes she'll be possible to kill/dispose of that way. 6) I think it'd be a cool double twist. People would be surprised, yet still feel like it makes perfect sense (given how he seemed in the Midpoint cutscene).
  4. Sone of Njordr's behavior and dialogue seems odd, for someone who's supposedly trying to help Gullveig (he reacts with horror at Kvasir's message,for example). Plus, he always told Seidr to keep her true emotions hidden... And I also don't want to believe that the Midpoint trailer would be so obviously misleading... So I'm going to bet on a double twist, and say this is only an act. He's Severus Snape, he's going to sacrifice himself in some way, and the party's only going to do what he needs them to do if he acts evil. Also, Nerthus is in on whatever he's planning. Why is that necessary? Not a clue. But it's the only way I can think of to reconcile his trailer and past self with what we're seeing now.
  5. Here we unlock Ride Armors, get the Arm Upgrade, and fight the first of Doppler's Nightmare Police! Mega Man X3 (SNES) 100% Walkthrough, Part 3: Blast Hornet, Neon Tiger, & Bit Time stamps are at the bottom. WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS EPISODE: Here we enter Blast Hornet's stage, and see what makes Ice Shield the best weapon since X1's Storm Tornado & Chameleon Sting. From there, we discover a Ride Armor platform we can't use until we physically find the one in this stage. We also find the first of four Enhancement Chips—upgrades to our upgrades. It is the Head Enhancement, which very slowly refills your health and/or Sub Tanks if you stand still. But, only one of four can be acquired in a game, and they all permanently lock out the game's ultimate armor... Thus we skip them. Next we face the mini-boss called Shurikein, then find the robot suit that unlocks the others. But, since it's an All Achievements run, we cannot use it till Bit, Byte, & Vile are all beaten. Then we defeat Blast Hornet—a relatively simple boss, so long as you know how to easily shred its bees in Phase 2. If you do not, you can still damage race her, for she doesn't hit very hard. Afterward is Neon Tiger. We get the Arm Parts... Which are unfortunately more of a side grade than an upgrade. We easily destroy the Worm Seeker-R mini-boss with Ice Shields, then face Bit twice. The first battle shows off how easy he can be; the second is a proper No Damage fight with only the Buster. I then do the same with Neon Tiger. Finally, I demonstrate Neon Jumps, which lets you double and triple jump with the Leg & Arm Upgrades. ENEMIES: Blast Hornet: Notor Bangers: 9 HP. Weak to Gravity Well & Parasitic Bomb. Head Gunners (Custom): 18 HP. Weak to to Parasitic Bomb. Helits: 5 HP. Weak to Gravity Well & Parasitic Bomb. Neon Tiger: Tomborts: 18 HP.

Bit: HP: 32 Damage: 1 (Contact), 3 (Sabre), 4 (Fireball) Invincibility Frames: Yes Weaknesses: Ice Shield & Triad Thunder Other Info: He'll be killed if the last hit's with a weakness. Otherwise, he retreats. Neon Tiger: HP: 32 Damage: 2 (Ray Splasher), 3 (Contact), 8 (Slash) Invincibility Frames: Yes Weakness: Spinning Blade Other Info: Sometimes turns invincible at 9 HP or less.

  6. Thank you! I'll bet that Zero resurrection trick will prove useful as well, should you ever use him. Agreed. I'm thankful he was willing to ket me use his music 🙂 .
  7. Alright, time for our first two Maverick bosses, as well as our first time seeing Dr. Doppler in the flesh! Mega Man X3 (SNES) 100% Walkthrough, Part 2: Tunnel Rhino & Blizzard Buffalo Time stamps are at the bottom. WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS EPISODE: Here we enter Tunnel Rhino's stage, and note just how much more durable and deadly the enemies are, compared to X1-2. We snag a Sub-Tank, see our first "Bit & Byte room", and take on the mini-boss called the Hell Crusher. We defeat it with the same strategy I used in my All Achievements speedrun. Then we switch to Zero and show off just how awkward his charge shots and Z Saber are to use, and then talk about his greatest weakness: The fact he's permanently locked off if he dies even once... At least, if you don't know how to use the exploit I showed off at 7:55. From there we defeat the Hell Crusher again, this time using a more conventional strategy, and proceed through the same area Zero died in — this way I show just how much easier X is to handle. Then we defeat Tunnel Rhino twice — one time with us having died once, and the other time with us not having died at all. The reason for that is because of a glitch: If you reach him without dying, his AI is bugged out of using one of his attacks. After that is Blizzard Buffalo. We use the Tornado Fang to collect a Heart Tank, show off two ways of making the Dash Jump to the Leg Parts, and show the very inconveniently placed respawn points waiting below if you fail the jump. From there we backtrack to the Sub Tank we passed up, using our new upwards Air Dash to snag it. Then we defeat Buffalo twice. The first time, I use my knowledge of his AI to trivialize him completely, and the second time, I show how it's *supposed* to go. Finally, we see a cutscene with Dr. Doppler, who is very heavily implied to be serving Sigma. We also get introduced to this game's equivalent of the X-Hunters: Bit, Byte, & a newly revived Vile. Then we finish things by listening to some awesome outro music, courtesy of Dracula9AntiChapel! ENEMIES: Tunnel Rhino: Ganseki Carriers: 12 HP. Weak to Gravity Well & Parasitic Bomb. Iwan De Vouxs: 9 HP for shell; 10 for core. Full Charges hit both shell & core. Drill Wayings: 15 HP. Never drops health or ammo. Drimole-Ws: 18 HP. Drills block all attacks. Wall Cancers: 12 HP. Weak to Gravity Well & Parasitic Bomb Bilzzard Buffalo: Helits: 5 HP. Weak to Gravity Well & Parasitic Bomb. Notor Bangers: 9 HP. Weak to Gravity Well & Parasitic Bomb. Ice De Vouxs: 9 HP for shell; 10 for core. Full Charges hit both shell & core. Snow Riders: 9 HP. Snow Sliders: 9 HP. Spawns a Snow Rider when slain. MINI-BOSS: Hell Crusher: HP: 32 Damage: 2 (Contact), 3 (Claw) Invincibility Frames: None Other Info: Rams you if you're on the ground. Uses claw if you're in the air. BOSSES: Tunnel Rhino: HP: 32 Damage: 3 (Contact), 4 (Drills), 5 (Invincible Dash) Invincibility Frames: ~0.97 seconds' worth Other Info: Only does Invincible Dash at 11 HP or less. Never uses Drills if you reach him without dying. Bilzzard Buffalo: HP: 32 Damage: 0 (Ice Beam), 3 (Icicles), 5 (Ramming), 5 (Contact) Invincibility Frames: ~0.97 seconds' worth Other Info: AI is reactive and exploitable. Only does Ice Beam at 15 HP or less. Icicles have 6 HP.

  8. Yo, guess what time it is? It's time for Mega Man X3 Walkthrough, co-starring the lovely and beautiful Forneia! For this one, I'll also show how to get the unofficial trophies from Retroachievements (including stuff like doing No Damage on most of the bosses). I also use a boss order that balances speed with easiness. Finally, I'm playing on the SNES, but with the CD cutscenes spliced in. I even plan on using the Japanese credits song, once we reach the end. Enjoy, everyone! Mega Man X3 (SNES) 100% Walkthrough, Part 1: Intro Stage & Boss Order Time stamps are at the bottom. THUMBNAIL ART BY: Innovator123 Special thanks to him for giving me permission to use it! The uncropped version of this, as well as his complete art gallery, can be found at...

There we learn that Dr. Doppler is this game's new villain — replacing Sigma from X1-2.Then we start the beginning level and see the value of "damage boosting". This is where one dashes past all the opposition by purposely taking hits in order to abuse invincibility frames. Note that this only works for levels with relatively weak enemies. After a mid-level cutscene, we start playing as Zero! I show off how he can store **three** powerful attacks, instead of just one... Including a beam saber swing! He then dispatches a mini-boss in two different ways. One is a speedrun strategy that shows how broken the Z Saber is; the other demonstrates how much damage each type of buster shot does. Then we regain control of X, and fight a rather pitiful boss. Its opening attack can make No Damage runs very hard, though... So I show how to dodge if it attacks immediately. Finally, I explain what boss route I'm going to use for this playthrough, while explaining why I'm not following the weakness order. Then we finish things by listening to some awesoe outro music, courtesy of Dracula9AntiChapel. He is an awesome remixer of the X series, the Zero series, Castlevania, Mother, Final Fantasy VI, and others. Check him out—he's got a LOT of great stuff!

  9. For anyone who's ever played X5... Yes, the Enigma has been solved. Here's how to make it always work, with 0 Parts, on every release of Mega Man X5! Mega Man X5: How to GUARANTEE Enigma Cannon Success with 0 PARTS, on EVERY Console! Volunteers (credited at the end of the description) have tested this on every single console — it always succeeded, even with 0 Parts. Just follow the video and you will too! This is extremely useful, for the following reasons. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1) You can earn the "Out of the Frying Pan, Into the Fire" achievement on Legacy Collection. 2) Speedruns are now viable without needing to play the Playstation or X-Collection versions (which used the Demo to get the RNG right). 3) You can immediately get the Ultimate Armor from the capsule in Zero Virus Stage 3 without fear of getting locked into the Bad Ending. Just stomp the final level and enjoy the Good Ending! 4) This also speeds up 100% runs, thanks to having the Ultimate Armor. Just get Black Zero & Ultimate Armor, then collect all armor parts, items, and collectibles from the first 8 mavericks! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- As for why it works... Well, I'll leave the full explanation for the video itself. But to sum it up, we're doing a restart to reset something called the "Random Number Generator" (RNG). That, and some very specific (but easily executed) movement in Volt Kraken, will guarantee that we always roll the random numbers we need for the Enigma to destroy the Space Colony. The exact movements you need to do depend on what version of the version you're playing: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1) The original PS1 version 2) X-Collection for PS2 & GameCube, as well as Legacy Collection on PS4. 3) Every other version (Steam, Switch, & Xbox One) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So watch, and be amazed!

  10. Well everyone, it's finally here! I completed the Mega Man X3 100% All Achievements run, I'll be submitting it to the leaderboards, and the LP is soon to come! And don't worry—the LP will be using a different boss route, especially during the midgame. You won't be spoiling yourselves too much by watching it. Happy day after New Years, and God bless!

  11. Well, I just finished touching up all my rough translations of these. Once again, do weigh in if you see something worth commenting on.

  13. This is a repost from the "General" sub-section, as there didn't appear to be any takers after a week. Now, here are some passages of dialogue from a game called "Breath of Fire II" that I attempted to translate & localize for the very last episode of my LP. But, I'm not experienced at that—I wouldn't trust only myself to give quality work on that. So I'm looking for someone experienced enough to tell what I got right and wrong for the passages listed here (though the last two just have placeholder text from another fan translation): https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fo9pGOvAD8MPSrC2yvQ_bnF86vieAJBArpLpj-UFxqc/edit Here is the video for context—the lines in question start at 2:09. Just be aware that all the NPC names (except "God") will have garbage data, instead of their proper names—that's because of the method I used to skip to the end of the game. But, all the passages are listed in the same order as they show up in the video. Thank you so much for your time, and God bless you!
