If you really wanted to take a stretch, you could say that King Arthur was like the superhero of the dark ages.

The name Harold might've fit that role and more however since it is a Norse name which is a culture largely associated with vikings, which was an occupation mythologized like action heroes in Norse countries at the time, and they most likely wielded axes, like Arthur does in his base class.

My question remains, then. Why, Treehouse?

I'm guessing they changed the name from Marx to Xander because traditionally, Marx is more of a last name.

Xander also sounds a lot less... politically charged and a lot more fictional crown prince-like.

Wonderful.

No more words needed. This person made their thoughts clear in one, concise letter. You see, in saying "I", this person has proven they are a real human bean.

Though, Rough, Through, cough, drought, bought...

Man, I'm so glad I never had to learn English as a second language, it'd be a nightmare.

Hahaha, that's kinda true, never thought about it with those pronunciations. I guess it just came more naturally to me or something.

It's a french immersion program, so in addition to a more advanced French class, you also have to take Math, Careers or Social Studies in French, or you don't graduate as officially bilingual.

Which is a tad unfortunate, because with the way the scheduling worked, I now have to take Careers at 7:15 in the morning twice a week starting February.

Yeesh. Too early. Though it's an interesting secondary language immersion program. Our program for English immersion basically had us get 8 English classes on a 9 day basis with advanced English, replacing mostly History classes, and trips to English speaking towns here and there (we got one in HS year 2, 3 and 4)

LMAO

I guess it makes sense that it prioritizes the verb over a cannister, but still, that's so funny.

Yeah, that time was pretty ridiculous XD That was the moment I was convinced to tell other people not to try to translate their texts through Google translate XP

6 hours ago, Benice said:

Dang, you're really next-level with languages, huh?

Nah. I was pretty good with languages when I was younger, true, but I think they just hired someone who seemed to have an okay accent and know decently enough to provide the subject matter they'd give to sixth graders. She wasn't extremely bad, but I could see the other teachers were more fluent. It was a bit sad that I was able to correct her back then though. Thankfully it was the only year where it had happened, otherwise, I may not have gone further into English.

I think there's another one, right? CC or something? I guess we'll cover that one in grade 12.

Hmm... well, doing some research, I've seen there's a "complément d'objet second" but we never learnt it. At the same time, it's profoundly useless, it's simply a way to designate a cluster of words. It complements a complement, basically, but its nature isn't dictated by the previous complement, it just floats about on its own.

Logically speaking, I don't think so. I don't imagine many French Canadians who are monolingual* would come all the way west to BC, and I don't think many Europeans are monolingual. I don't know for certain since I've not been employed before the pandemic: I work at a grocery store and I've met a couple of non-English speakers, but I don't know what language it was either of them spoke.

*I also don't know how much English is taught to y'all over there, but a couple of French-Canadian chaps have come in, and all of them are fairly fluid in English

I do use French at that store because there's a regular customer who was a linguistics professor and he speaks to me in French every time, but in practicality, it's more for if I ever want a Federal job or to go to Quebec or Europe. Or parts of Africa, I suppose.

It really helps that so much media is English primary and all that. You can still get around in Quebec with only French, but not if you're in Montreal or something like that. Or well, it's harder to get by there without English, let's say. Considering that Cegep has both classes the level of an infant and classes which teaches you about like 200 idioms where 93% is a bad grade (I'm pretty sure we learned other stuff, but that's the one thing that really stuck with me, lol) I'd say it just depends on the person XD I think most people would be able to do at least basic stuff, but a lot would have a very thick accent with a billion hs spread at the start of words (I never understood why). Francisms and grammar mistakes would also abound. Though I also have a friend about 25 yo who knows barely any English despite the curriculum, and what I told you about was from people in my English immersion class. But I think consuming media in English is frequent enough that a lot of people would simply get better over time.

Haha, that's pretty nice with the linguistics professor. At least you have one person with whom you can sometimes practice XD And yeah, it certainly has its uses, but it's more difficult to encounter, and thus harder to really immerse yourself in it. I was lucky enough to be a video game baby and have to play tons of games in English so it improved my English reading ability exponentially.

And to speak of KOS-MOS for just one moment. I did like that when it came to catching her up on what's happened, Aschen transmitted all the information to her as opposed to the usual spiel. I'm not saying one can forget they're androids, but it was a neat android-y move. One of the benefits of being a robot, near-instantaneous reception and digestion of large quantities of new information.

It was neat tho I do kinda have an issue with how much we gotta cut to "and so the party told the newcomer everything that's happened so far, including this, this and that". Like just cut to black and have the next scene having the newcomer be like "I see", that would be better imo.

Just a nitpick tho.

Tbf, PoR/RD changed a ton of names, too. (I.E Wayu was changed to Mia, Kevin was changed to Kieran, etc) So it's not strange to see them change names just cause.

No, it is revealed in the twentieth game that she's really the human incarnation of Trails's deity, Aidios. The mastermind turns out to be Estelle herself.

To be fair, Wayu would've looked weird in English. Not sure about Kevin, but I guess Kieran is more unique. I'm just wondering why they changed Harold to a name that was already in use.

I getcha. I see how how they were trying to cut down on the amount of repetitive dialogue, I've a game still in my memory where they didn't do something like this and it resulted in greater narrative sluggishness. Though you're right that maybe they didn't have to spell it out loud that they told character Y everything that happened, it wouldn't take a whole lot of interference to understand that.

No, Kirby. Marx from Kirby Super Star, who happens to be the final boss of its final mode and later the final boss of its arena and its remake's true arena.

Ah yes. Hector mode chapter 15, also known as Completely Pointless Filler Map. I still have no idea why this map exists.

...Well, with the boss recruitment mod, it does have one point of interest - Sealen, a nomad with availability, unlike Rath. Unfortunate that I'm probably not going to pick him up, because he's in Bernard's group.

Oh hey, that's interesting. The scene at the start of chapter 16 changed. Instead of Kent and Sain, it was Kent and Eagler that went out scouting. That's neat, incorporating these characters into the story a little bit. The way they rejoin is a bit wonky, though. Unlike everyone else, they keep their Lyn mode items, and then they're given more items on top of that. I guess I could've used that to smuggle the knight crest out of Lyn mode if I'd known.

Also, Carjiga joined Laus. No no no, mate. I worked hard to get you. I'm not letting you go that easily. Get back in our team, right now.

Also the boss of Classic Mode for Kirby, Rosalina and Inkling.

Also appears for Sephiroth. But his case is different since he fights all the bosses.

Nice.

I tried playing video games in French instead of English for a while, but since it was Dark souls 3, I didn't read any of the item descriptions anyways.

I should actually try playing a Yakuza game with a french translation, since they're rather text heavy.

I wrote it so short because I admittedly didn't have much to add with the action. I thought a bit simply, don't take that as a limit to force on yourself.

I didn't mind the length much, so long as the content was interesting. I feel like it was.

It's like my college professors used to say: "I don't grade for length, I grade for content". I'm not that wasn't just a smokescreen for a heavy curve, though.
