Ys Origin - Thoughts etc

batman: The tower from Ys Origin (because sometimes more is more)
[personal profile] batman
I finished Ys Origin! Or … rather, I finished it a couple of weeks ago, but had to keep it a secret because I had written a treat for it in Press Start and I wanted to be stealthy. But now that authors have been revealed, I can finally talk about it without tipping my recipient off! :) Please feel free to comment on how stealthy I am.

Ys Origin aka Days of Our Facts )

I have one more Ys game left to play, and then I really have played all the Ys games in English! That’s not bad considering that I really only started playing them in around April this year. I’ve really been on a Falcom roll of late, so I suppose it’s a good thing that I’m taking a break to do other publishers.

That brings me to 102 games left in my backlog! Next up, finishing off The Longest Journey to tidy up the lingering games, and then Virtue’s Last Reward and Valkyrie Profile!

And that's a wrap!

Assuming things all went as they should, creators should now be revealed!

It appears that we achieved one last trophy: I've Seen A Million Gifts and I Commented On Them All. Nice work, everyone!

What did you think of this year's exchange? Anything you'd like to see happen again next year? Anything you'd like to change? Feel free to let me know! Otherwise, well done everyone, and I hope to see you all in Chocolate Box 2018!

batman: Alm and Celica from Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia (fate's twin children)
[personal profile] batman
I finished Fire Emblem: Shadows of Valentia! I initially bought this because the art looked great and figured “why not”, and have been playing it in around trying to approve tags for Yuletide. 50 something hours later, I finally finished it and have fallen head over heels for it, and I now want to dive further into Fire Emblem.

I'm a Forsyth to be reckoned with! )

Next up, a ~mystery game~ that I played recently, and then plugging away at The Longest Journey. Also I should really start working on my bingo card.

Here's the breakdown for how nominations to the tagset should work this year. I'll post a link to the tagset tomorrow, please use this post to ask about any questions related to the nominations process or regarding metafandoms. As we approve tags and have questions related to your nominations, I'll start a new post with those questions.

Nominating fandoms:

For Marvel and DC, generally we end up with nominations for the top-level All Media Type tags (which are Marvel and DCU respectively), mid-level metafandoms (eg MCU, DCU (Comics)), and specific fandoms (eg Hawkeye (Comics), The Flash (TV)).

For things like video game series (Final Fantasy, Fire Emblem) and TV shows with rolling continuity (Doctor Who and Torchwood, Buffy and Angel) it’s preferable to nominate on a metafandom. If you’re planning on nominating something like this, feel free to discuss in comments, otherwise we’ll ask for clarification as they come up in nominations. Fandoms with mostly rolling continuity but some bumps (Star Trek as a whole vs AOS, X-Men movies, etc) usually get grouped into multiple metafandoms in the same way as Marvel or DCU, but there’s less need to get as detailed (ie Star Trek and AOS as the only two categories is fine, no need to specify TNG vs DS9).

Nominating fandoms in this way also helps cut down on the need for crossovers. If you’re nominating a relationship that is a crossover, it gets nominated to the fandom Crossover. But if you’re nominating within a metafandom, that’s not an issue (see below for more details).

Generally speaking, if one media format AND the All Media Types format of a fandom are nominated, we’ll select the AMT type, though we will try and ask for clarification if it happens (since directors can make movies very different from the books).



Nominating relationships:

Please make sure it has three characters, and uses the / symbol instead of the & symbol between all characters.

Please always nominate to the highest applicable metafandom. If you do not disambiguate while nominating a relationship, it’ll be placed in the highest applicable metafandom. If you have multiple disambiguations in one relationship, it will be placed in the highest applicable metafandom.

Examples:

James "Bucky" Barnes/Steve Rogers/Sam Wilson: gets assigned to Marvel, since it could mean comics or MCU.
James "Bucky" Barnes/Steve Rogers/Sam Wilson (MCU): I assume this means one disambiguation for the relationship as a whole, and put it in MCU.
James "Bucky" Barnes(Ultimates)/Steve Rogers (MCU)/Sam Wilson (MCU): there is a comics disambig and a movies disambig so it gets assigned to Marvel, which covers both.
