I'm such an amazing person that I get requests from very friendly robots. If your profile looks shady or I don't know why you're adding me, please refrain from doing so in the first place.

Welcome to my profile

As you might deduce from the piece of text at the top of this page, entirely random friend requests are likely to be shot down. If you want to test your luck, then go right ahead. If the occasion is with you and my mood is above average for the day, your request has an estimated 36% chance of being accepted. If your profile has a level above 5 and is not entirely devoid of text, that percentage rises to a solid 47%. Those are fairly good odds if I can say so myself.

If I have accepted the request, I expect you to have sent it for a reason. Half-assed justifications such as "I want to increase my friend count!" , or "Please buy me this game!" will result in the immediate termination of our acquaintance. As will you having other ulterior motives in adding me or being generally bothersome. Also try to understand that my status being set to anything but online does, in fact, signify that I am currently occupied with something else.

About me

I can be considered an online vagabond, drifting aimlessly from site to site. My hobbies, amongst other things, consists of reading, writing, anime [myanimelist.net], and manga. I am a literature student and an aspiring author who is also self-studying Japanese. Something else I also enjoy is philosophy, and I occasionally find myself in deep thoughts about certain aspects of our existence. Based on this, my personality can be inferred to be nihilistic in some ways, as I don’t have particularly high hopes for the future of humanity and pay a lot of attention to miniscule details. Perhaps that is reflected in the type of books and anime I enjoy. I might not have a positive outlook on everything in life, but many people describe me as a communicative individual who also happens to be a good listener. My greatest flaw however is how quickly I am capable of burning myself out. I can go from being the heart of a party to wanting to sleep with speed that is even fearsome to myself.

Like I mentioned, I really enjoy writing and have been working on a novel for the past five years. Not much of that time has been spent actually writing though, but I have built an extensive world and characters which amounts to over thirty almost autistically organised google documents. Unfortunately, I am dreadful at allotting the time necessary to make significant progress on the novel itself, which means that I’m stuck in a repetitive cycle of rewriting things that I’m not pleased with while fleshing out the early chapters. What this means is that these early chapters only get better and better, the later chapters stay as they are, and the planned out chapters stay unwritten. At this pace I may finish it in another twenty years.

When it comes to music, I exclusively listen to Japanese tunes by my own volition, as apart from being vocal masterpieces, they also help me with my studies of the language. To be more specific, I listen mainly to im@s, and have done so for the last two years. This is of course disregarding the music I have no control over, such as from radios outside or that which is played by my friends.

Video games / Fire Emblem

Nowadays, I don’t play games as much as I used to, but I'll likely play more now that I've bought a new gaming PC. My genre preferences however tend to lie with JRPG’s and VN’s, for similar reasons to why I listen to Japanese music, but regarding the former I’ve become a bit jaded through playing so many of them. Faults are incredibly easy for me to spot, especially in overhyped titles. The game series I enjoy are mostly Nintendo. Ace Attorney, Pokémon, Professor Layton, Dragon Quest, etc.

My favourite game series is Fire Emblem, and it has been that way for over 15 years as of now. The games in the series which I like the most are the ones that are designed as very tight and linear challenges, with the story woven directly into the gameplay. Due to this, FE9/10 are amongst my favourite games in that they are not only incredibly well crafted experiences, but also pay homage to Kaga and his vision of the series through its inclusion of aspects that hadn’t been seen since FE5. Speaking of FE5, it is also one of my favourite games as a lot of the mechanics it implements are used to their full extent. Kaga showed a great understanding of what makes the Fire Emblem games good in the first place, and evolved and refined these aspects to create good and varied content for what ended up being his last FE game. The gameplay portion of Conquest is also something I like a lot. On the other hand, Awakening, Gaiden (+Echoes), Revelation, and to a certain extent Sacred Stones are the ones I like the least. The 3DS era especially stands out negatively for me. The games which have supports as the main focus, include avatars, face petting, pairup, a marriage system which is nothing less than insulting to its FE4 iteration, and are designed around grinding out every situation instead of containing strict and linear challenges all fall under this banner. These games have the very real issue of loosening up the belt and giving players too much freedom in a game where resource management and constant gameplay decisions should make up the bulk of the experience. Adding the option to grind endlessly without any repercussion simply does not belong in a Fire Emblem game, and ruins the formula at the very base level. Due to this, I sincerely hope FE16 can deliver on what made the previous console FEs such amazing games while cutting back on the DLC milking.

Played FF:T it's great :)

On that note, have you played XCOM or Valkyria Chronicles? Both share a fair part of gameplay with Fire Emblem and are both great games.

The thing with FFV is that Square Enix is horrible at porting games to PC. The images look that crappy because they need to scale them up for higher resolution. It gets to the point where you can see the seams between the tiles :/
Probably the controls are also messed up again but if you have no problem with this two things I think you are good to go.
