Nintendo gamer for life, begrudging owner of a PS3, aching for games for both of my consoles. Sigh.
I'm all about the RPG's, starting with Chrono Trigger and Super Mario RPG, all the way through Final Fantasy 6-12 (skipping 11) and ending up with Persona 3 and Ar Tenelico. Square is where its at, as long as its premerger. My opinion thereafter is low at best.
I'm also a HUGE anime fan, getting my cherry popped by a set of Dragonballs and a transexual boy/girl named Ranma. In the intervening years I've discovered the greatness of 'School Rumble', 'Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien', 'The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya', 'Elfen Lied', and basking in the glory that is 'Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo' and 'Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann'. I try to empty my wallet as quickly as possible collecting inglorious amounts of PVC statues and figures.
Speaking of statues and figures, I write features on Tomopop.com. I make your taste buds dance and sing. I also occasionally review stuff for Japanator.
So a bit before my excursion to Otakon (which you can read a bit more about on Go For Broke at Tomopop) I decided to mess around with the create-a-character in Soulcalibur. That being so, I churned out a few solid pieces of silver, if not gold.
First up is every bodies favorite aniki, Kamina of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann fame.
I gave him Mitsurugi's style, since he carries around that impossibly sized katana most of the time he's not improperly using a hand gun.
After I was done immortalizing the great Kamina, I decided to make the Chrono Trigger cast, as it's the first thing I try whenever I have a decent create-a-character option. First up is Chrono with Mitsurugi's move set yet again.
Next up is Marle. She and Ayla were difficult since I haven't unlocked many tube tops for the ladies, but I used what I could. I gave her Tira's move set since the option for crossbows doesn't exist.
Following Marle I made Lucca. She and Robo are the ones I'm proudest of. She get Talim's moveset.
I made Frog next, but since I lack frog form options he looks like Piccolo of Dragon Ball Z fame.
I gave him Sophitia's move set since all the character art has him with a sword and shield, though further thought encourages me to give him Seigfriend's move set since Sophitia's moves tend to be a bit more feminine.
I made Magus next. I would like it better if I could give him pointed ears and earrings, but hey, I did what I could.
It was handy that Zasamel uses a scythe.
Next up is the one that I spent the most time with, Robo. Considering there was a lack of robotics in the mode, I decided to make him into a armored rendition of the original design.
Choosing a move set was tough, but I believe I gave him Nightmare's moves and a glowing Soul Edge to boot.
Finally, I made Ayla. I had the same problem with her that I had with Marle, but after some monkeying around I was able to get a decent facsimile.
I gave Ayla a mace as a weapon since the official art has her with a bludgeon.
I think I'm done for now. When I get more parts I'll keep attacking it.
