It's absolutely playing in reverse (you can see the flames going inward).

This gif is one of my favorite things to come out of the Xenoblade fandom because it's basically just "Malos T-poses his way to the roof".

I didn't notice the flames. Still, it does make Malos look boss. 

After considering the full extent of Jin's Absolute Zero, and factoring in Xenoblade already has future sight, I think immediate-term time rewind would be a perfectly feasible inclusion.

And since Gravity = Dark in XC2 (but I don't think this is ever brought up in lore actually), Malos reversing gravity might be reasonable. Not that Malos need gravity control to explain flying, Sheba off the top of my mind already does it in a bathtub and she's Water-based.

I still could do not set Pythra because my flat is an absolute chaos right now. The entire floor is full of shit (furniture) because I still need someone who helps me to mount it. Having no family and friends and being unable in handcraft sucks.

Flying bathtub, what?

Also, reading Sheba it reminded me of Golden Sun's Sheba... who for her flying could make more sense having wind related powers.

And if we take Xenosaga into account, time-travel is also a possibility within Xeno lore (like 90% of Disc 1 of Episode III is a time-travel plot). So time-rewind is definitly a possibilty within Xeno lore.

Yeah, it's not. And Dark is what the element is called (Azurda will call it out if certain enemies have that weakness), it's more of just gravity manipulation is a part of the Dark element. Just like how particle manipulation is a part of the Light element (since the Light combo stages are called Photon -> Gamma Ray -> Supernova).

And on that note, it seems the Water element has the attribute of poison as well, given that a stage 2 water combo is called "Venom Water" though it's the only instance of Water ever showing signs of posion, unlike the Light and Dark elements which always have a theme of particles and gravity respectively. That said, Aqua (the first stage of a Water combo) was called "Poison" in E3 footage.

Meet Sheba, an Ether Cannon Blade of the Water element.

latest?cb=20190203040101

....her official art doesn't have her in the bathtub. But she basically flies around in it when on the field.

latest?cb=20171116072214

She also rocket propels the bathtub to ram into the enemy in her Lv.2 Special, iirc.

And fun fact, Sheba is canonically lesbian. I think that makes her the first LGBT character in Xeno but i could be wrong. Maybe there's someone in X who's also that.

Doesn't Neptune have a healing skill? Cause i'm pretty sure she does.

She has a passive that heals herself in MegaNep VII, which you can use as a base to make Nep-Nep into THE tank: give her a Game Disc with that same skill at a high level and the Devil Processor Units that also give passive healing = over 4,000 HP healed every turn. But she lacks an active healing skill (Nepgear has two, Uzume has one as well on top of a revival one). She has two buffs, yes, but all her other skills are physical attacks, like Victory Slash or Neptune Break.

She may have one in one of the spin-offs, though.

But yeah, the Canidates are much more balanced than the CPUs. Though i'm definitly more of an "offense is the best defense" guy so i usually keep the Canidates in the rearguard unless it's ReBirth 2.

I'm usually the same way in any game.
Nepgear and Ram are mainstays in my VII party, though. Nepgear because I like her, and Ram because she's too strong (and useful, as there are many enemies who are completely immune to physical attacks in VII) to leave out.

Yeah, I should have flipped my phrasing to "Dark = Gravity". But good point about sci-fi traits being weaved into Light too, photons are particles of pure energy.

There are twin brother NPC BLADEs named Lara Mara and Lara Nara in XCX. Both look a little old (35 apparently- anime logic about aging), but they're both muscular, flamboyant and might be wearing lipstick. So gay stereotypes more or less, a little offensive, but not aggressively so. They even get a Special Holofigure posing together called "Visions of Beauty". 

 

And, there is this bit of post-battle victory banter.:

Spoiler
Male Cross (Classic) Cross - "I know we're fighting for the humanity, but this all feels so futile."

Doug - "Man, what you need is a nice girl...or y'know guy if that's your thing."

If you need to hear it aloud, I've set this collection of Cross-Other Playable Characters banters to precisely Doug's above line.:

If you need to hear Cross utter the first line, go back to 6:01.

Add in Mia's two dead dads, and gay marriage almost had to be legal on Earth, and almost should be legal in NLA. It is space colony designed and funded by the USA, which did fully legalize gay marriage in the year this game released.

 

Doug himself isn't gay by the way. Lao-Doug victory banter has Lao speak of a girl Doug is into. Doug-Hope has Doug go stereotypical s-s-stutter b-b-because l-l-l-love, so she has to be the lady.

So basically, there were LGBT characters in Xeno before but Sheba is the first playable one.

Oh, i must confused her with Nepgear then because i could've sworn Neptune had a healing skill but i guess not.

Isn't Zoro Agruga the same name that the skeleton dragon in Trails of Cold Steel had? That one was one of my favorite bosses purely due to its design.

Ah, I see.
I saw the opening movie to that game recently. Looked interesting, but I'm not much of a fan of MMO-esque combat systems.

It happens. I confuse Ram and Rom all the time when it comes to their skills.

Had to leave work early because I simply cannot get rid of the cough I have had for almost three weeks right now. I ordered tons of medicaments. Hopefully they will work...

Thank you!

It's not too bad for now. The only issue is that I haven't slept properly in, like, three days (because seminars, lectures and the like kept me from sleeping during the day). I have a free day tomorrow, so I'll probably sleep through all of that.

It's fall as fall should be, I feel like. Nature needs the rain right now after the major drought we've suffered through for the longest time.
But you're right, this weather is prime "haha, now your nose is running!" weather.

Tbf it is my first real cold for about 1.5 years.

Nose inhaling everyday prevented it....... till three weeks ago.

 

Despite the drought at summer it has rained more than enough lately.

Figures. After playing SuperNep RPG and based on what you and Armagon told me, I think I might stay away from Nep spin-offs for the time being.

But yeah, I am not a fond of huge temperature jumps from one day to the other day either.

What I hate most is when I have to put on a thick jacket and several layers of clothes in order to avoid freezing to death in the morning only to end up sweating buckets in the afternoon.
It's like "it's one or the other! Pick, damn you!"

I know this feeling. 

Since I have to walk from to home to work and back each 3 km I usually start to sweat. Carrying a jacket is uncomfortable, so I keep it on with the mentioned consequences. 

 

Anyways the good thing of my unwanted long weekend is that I have the time to make progress in Valkyria Chronicles 1 + 4 (yeah playing both simultaneously).

Honestly, 4GO had the potential to be pretty good, but it got marred by bugs and meh bosses.

Especially the bugs <.<

And for a game you should play with others, it's netcode......

With pullover it's too hot
without it's too cold
sometimes it's hot without pullover or cold with one...
