Guess the fan favorite female Final Fantasy character

11:30 AM on 01.18.2013 // Dale North


I love you guys, but you're the broken record to end all broken records when it comes to your dislike of Final Fantasy heroine Lightning. If you're one of the Lightning haters you're going to love this.

Square Enix Japan took a poll to determine who would be the fan favorite female Final Fantasy character, and the results posted on their Facebook page made me instantly think of you, dear reader. Forum members could only vote for one character from the 25 year history of the franchise but somehow your least favorite, Lightning, took top honors.

Aerith was a close second, and Yuna came in third. I got mad love for Celes so I'm glad she came in fifth. But where the hell is my glasses girl, Quistis? Trade out Garnet for her, I'd say.

See the full listing below. Some of these were ties, but I listed them in numerical order anyway.

A client tipped me $50 today at a job site, which lead to me only spending $10 + tax for Dragon Quest Heroes. Slime time baby.

Daily VGM #22 (Witcher 2) - Pam Pa Ram (The Witcher 3) [youtube][/youtube] Instant classic 10/10. It's a travesty it wasn't included in the soundtrack. Maybe CDPR is preparing for a special second disc release? I sure hope
Oh, look at that, the rough draft I choose not to delete of this paper I need to do! I can keep adding to that instead of starting over and getting frustrated and quitting. What a novel concept!

I'm coming to realize my time off from blogging has made the progress I made at being succinct fade away into nothingness, as the world will see in about an hour. I also made Valkyrie Drive's boobs even more boring at Japanator last night! Somehow.
Apparently, Kero Blaster got an update... Neat.

Just a reminder: If you game doesn't have a dancing murderer, or a dancing little girl, your not a GOTY contender.

Season 2 of Fargo is out, and of course Fargo isn't Fargo without dumbass criminals, tragedy and black comedy mixed into one package. BTW, the Organic Mechanic is in this season.

Had the brilliant idea of watching the original Alien last night before bed. Totally didn't have crazy dreams afterward. Also, Bilbo Baggins was a total jerk in that movie. [img][/img]

Finished playing the fan localization for Ace Investigations 2. These guys did a fantastic job, despite this game having the single most convoluted plot in the entire series. Here's hoping that somehow, someday, Great Ace Attorney will get this treatment.
