Boulet-Guardians

Another Signal Boost: Fanart Rec (FFX, Braska's pilgrimage)

 Hee. When I haven't gotten any fandom done, I rec Mugs. I like this.

Watercolor doodle of Auron, Braska, Jecht -- simple and worksafe. 

Sometimes I wish Squeenex had done an FFX prequel. Then I realize how badly they'd bungle it, and I'm grateful that fellow fans have covered Braska/Auron/Jecht (with or without the UST) far better.

Why I like FFXIII, In Spite of Its Gaping Godsawful Flaws

This is a repost of a comment I made buried waaaay down in an LJ discussion. I thought I'd throw it out here. I don't think there are significant spoilers.

Preface this by the fact that I find I like games for the following reasons, in the following order: Characters (including their interactions, backstories, psychology, memorable lines, voices); myths and archetypes; setting (I am a graphics junkie, but also care deeply about worldbuilding); story; game mechanics; plot. (You can sell me on a childishly simple storyline, plot holes, or a story that's been done a million zillion times, if you do other things well.)
