This game is definitely stretching the graphic capabilities of the PS3, which is a bit outdated now. Funny how they gave me a VF-0 from the start, while Aisha gets a VF-19 due to 'special privileges'.

Ah, the YF-29 Durandal has a updated version in the form of Percival. Going to get my hands on one, but probably won't be possible until later. *sigh*

I won't answer the rest because I've met many on other boards with a different opinion to your "the war is over, you can ship whoever you want;" but I'll say one thing to the quote above: I know what you mean. I shipped Harry & Hermione to the end but I accepted the ending nonetheless because I still like the trio all by themselves & not in romantic relationships.

That aside, it was me who said the players could play as Alto because someone on the live feed had done it.

I too also ship Harry & Hermione but I did feel the series was better off without any romance at all, because to be honest Rowling sucks at writing it, and it took away from the story instead of adding to it. But as a Harry & Hermione fan you cannot tell me that the AR fans have it bad, because even after Rowling basically vindicated them the RHr and GH fans still go out of their way to attack every other fan ship for the series.

Hey Rowling herself admitted it could have gone that way.

I must admit, while not a fan of Hairy Pot, I did watch couple of the movies against my will and thought they were the main ship.

I remember one particular 'delusional shippers' interview - news of the shipwars and outcry REALLY spread through the vines, bombarding my f-list (amazing considering I barely have anything to do with HP) that I basically knew all the details, and I wasn't even part of the fandom at all!

I do sympathize though, and am glad it never deteriorated to that extent, which is why I'm always amused whenever someone bemoans our 'shipwars'. This fandom at least, can manage some sort of civility and bro hugs.

Edit: I realized I misread you, although that one interview has been a source of great headaches for HHr shippers. I wasn't aware of any follow up after that part so feel free to correct me

I basically said the same thing. I liked the trio without the romance because their friendship is what I started watching the movies for. & so, I can't sympathize with those who were absolutely disgusted by the ending because my main love was the trio itself & not the romance. After all, I watched the movies for the plot & not the romance. & I never discuss anything Harry Potter related because I do not have an entirely strong attachment to the romance in the movies or novel. People need to get over it. The books & movies have been done for a while now, years even. God, we need something new to replace the heat; like a new Star Wars film.

Anyway, we're kinda falling off topic... let's get back on topic before the mods remove posts.

It was actually the owner of Muggle.net who said not Rowling. Though it doesn't people from quoting it. But yeah it wasn't so much the ship wars were pretty much one-sided. Really MF is heaven compared to that.

Well a lot of people hated the epilogue, aren't all shippers, and even the shippers (GH, RHr, HHr, DHr, DH, DG, etc) all hate it for reasons not related to shipping. The real problem with the epilogue was that it was cliche, it was both giving out too much information and not enough information at the same time, unnecessary, and kids children with horrible names. People actually wanted to see how the wizarding world was recovering from the war, they didn't care about who married who.

But yeah like back on topic I believe I saw Macross II on that website that Gubaba posted.

Well... Don't say everyone hated the epilogue and/or didn't care about the shipping situation in the Harry Potter series just because you guys didn't. I, for one, enjoyed both things immensely. And I'm fairly sure I wasn't the only one.

I don't think its anything that other people hasn't already heard of, as I don't watch 24/7 live streams nor update myself as much, but here are some quotes/speculations that intrigued me:

- Direct quote from HayateKanzaki in GameFAQS, who types like a certain AS user

Quote:
During a conversation between Leon's group and Alto and Sheryl, Alto was protecting Sheryl from the 'guys who were out to get her' specifically. And were performing a fold in his plane to get away and somehow ended up on Ouroboros in one of the ruins.

- In every published game shot of Sheryl, her right earring is always missing. I wasn't really sure what the significance of this is in the game, so when
this footage suggested where it went , I suppose it was given to Alto somewhere along the line. (On this note, there's conflicting information of this version of Alto: was he from SnT, and if so, why was it brought up that he was surprised when he was told he went MIA in the movie? My head hurts, and I refuse to touch it anymore.) I've always liked the earring symbolism between them, so I'm glad they carried in into the game.

Alto and Sheryl being the first characters you meet: only for a MF fan, where its nice as you don't have to waste time wondering when they'll appear.

There's also something about Sheryl's Burning Fever, you'll have to bug Tak about this chapter.

And that's all from me, these are rather small but I do appreciate them Of course, these are all my observations, players will definitely be able to provide more concrete info.

I didn't realize you'd come to accept Alto and Sheryl, but I haven't been here that often recently. Still, I apologize profusely.
Holy shit, ether the likes that hasn't been seen since Nas battled Jay-Z was just dropped.

They may be small, but I'm happy to see any A/S related stuff. Thank you for the info, cheesie!
