[QUOTE] [URL=http://static.giantbomb.com/uploads/original/7/73970/1388965-014.gif] a charming shopkeeper[/URL] Speaking of, I must admit I had forgotten the existence of Sylfie until I ran into her in PxZ2 yesterday. And... was she always that frightening? Her double-faced shopkeeper banter is absolutely fantastic, in a VERY different way from the badge rabbit. Or maybe that's the way she was written in NxC and they kept it in the sequels? [/QUOTE] In NxC she was already quite the ruthless mercenary with a perpetual warm smile on her face, often trying to pull off stuff like trying to steal KOS-MOS - between that and her combat transformations and references to really old Capcom games in that game, to me she was practically Capcom personified there. But now that Captain Commando is the one summoning old Capcom characters in his attacks, the role seems a bit diluted. At least the emerging SHOP in unlikely places to the sound of Forgotten Worlds music remained, that never gets old. Speaking of stuff getting old, last night I finished the final major expansion of Final Fantasy XI. It was one of the few things that brought me tears this past decade (the others being the endings to Revenge of the Sith, Toy Story 3 and Hi Schoool SeHa Girls... what the hell is wrong with me?...). Maybe it was 8 years of playing it and enjoying its many stories, and seeing them being used together by the end, the [URL=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AekeU5Z9w9M]music that used an ever-growing choir section sung by players who sent their own samples[/URL], the story's theme reflecting the state of the game itself and it's eventual end, along with a character that's pretty much the living/digital legacy of the gam and its players ([URL=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjd8R74MDsQ]whom as such seems to be transitioning to FFXIV[/URL])... it was just too much, on top of a game so finely crafted in many big and subtle ways (if often merciless to the players in its past, something that FFXIV's early failure helped discourage). I can't really expect people who didn't experience the game to relate to this much, but it's the first time a game got such a reaction out of me, to the extent that Cloud in Smash didn't feel like that big a deal in comparison. I guess I felt like sharing.
