Games I Did Not Expect to Adore This Year: Mass Effect. )

Speaking of things that make me jump for joy, I have renewed my attempt to actually finish Final Freaking Fantasy XII, and Balthier is far more awesome than you will ever be. I knew I loved him from roughly the moment he opened his mouth. If he and Garrett ever were in the same room with each other, I, well, I'd probably be left a trembling heap from their combined withering scorn, but by god I'd be the happiest heap that ever there was.

(Fran and Viktoria can sit by and discuss being badass non-human-yet-hawt chicks teamed up with wisecracking criminals. ...IF THIS GAME KILLS FRAN I WILL BE EXTREMELY PISSED. DON'T KILL FRAN. THE SUM TOTAL OF HAWT IN THE UNIVERSE WOULD BE DEALT A FATAL BLOW.)

I love how completely, sublimely unimpressed Fran and Balthier are by Vaan. It's beautiful.

I don't think I'm very far yet! I just rescued totally-not-the-princess and am faffing around attempting to escape the dungeons and making fun of Vaan. The music is irritating and the combat system is strange - I get the feeling it'll open up as the game goes on, but I just came out of Mass Effect and its RPG Combat That Is Actually Fun, so it's taking some getting used to.

The writing, or localization, I guess, is excellent, however. I think I'd play on just for it.
