Hi there, I'm Xiaolian. That means "Little Lotus" in Chinese. About me,
  • Gamer on many platforms. PS3, PSP, Mega Drive, 3DS, PC, Neo-Geo Color.
  • I don't do console wars. They all do what they're meant to do. Argue individual games instead of entire platforms, kthx.
  • My favourite genre is RPG, my favourite game series is Rune Factory.
  • Semi-fluent in Japanese, learning Korean and Chinese when I have time/energy.
  • LOVE reading fantasy novels, but dislike Eragon and Harry Potter, making me an outcast in most fantasy circles.
  • Also love reading informative books regarding Oriental history, mythology, folk-tales. Most recently I read Nagasaki no Kane, by Takashi Nagai, a survivor of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki during World War 2.
  • Favourite anime is Kannazuki no Miko/Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora, favourite manga is Battle Vixens.
  • I own sixteen swords of varying lengths and types, my favourite is Revolver, a razor-sharp replica of Squall Leonhart's first weapon in Final Fantasy VIII.
  • Horror and martial arts movies are my life. And anything with Jason Statham in it.
  • I drink far too much soda.
  • I like to write stories, but I suffer from an acute case of writers block. My work rarely gets past a few chapters before I move to another project and forget the former for upwards of a year. One of these projects I started in 2008. I recently started working on it again.
  • I work in retail, so as you may imagine, my faith in humanity has been systematically taken apart.
I can't think of anything else, so feel free to ask.

It is. It's also very heavy, which makes me question why Square Enix felt the need to make Squall use it with one hand in Dissidia/Duodecim, rather than the power grip stance in the original game. And while Seifer uses his with one hand, his Hyperion is much lighter than Revolver is.

I know far too much about Final Fantasy VIII.

I never considered how much one would weigh actually. I can imagine that much steel would be decently heavy though.

Well mine is 3.5 feet in length. Not sure of the actual weight, but there's no way I could use it one-handed. I can hold it, sure. But actually slashing with it (or indeed using the gun section) would be impossible.

At least there'd be an achievement for it.

You may laugh, but I own a few games that have a ton of endings. Atelier Totori has something like 30 endings, each with an achievement.

Wow, that's a bloody sharp looking sword-gun. Makes my baton look pitiful. XD

Welcome to the forums, Xiaolian, enjoy you stay, hope it's permanent.

Indeed.

Oh my lord you guys say shank in the US too? But if you don't, Xiao just went up in my estimations quite enormously. XD
