... though I am kinda amused by Lyon going like WELL MAYBE GEORG FEELS BAD BECAUSE THEY THINK (SPOILER) HE KILLED ARSHTAT AND FERID and it's like ... no, Lyon, he feels bad because he DID. (SPOILER) Well, okay, not Ferid. Close enough. But that's still not WHY ARE YOU AN IDIOT it's simply that she has insufficient information and there's no reason she'd have sufficient information.
Yes! If it's one thing I like about Suikoden, it's the plot, and the fact that the major characters AREN'T complete idiots most of the time! Just make sure to keep your eye on the Barows! It's pretty obvious they're plotting something, I mean, if the fact that your companions are already weary of them to begin with isn't a clue lol >.>

Haha, it is pretty obvious they're the same person. I don't wanna let Lyon die anyway! She's probably not one of the best in the game, but aside my protagonist, her with Richard, Belcoot, and two random decent spellcasters, my current formation's pretty good!

Much better than safety orange. Where the hell does he even get his safety orange outfits, anyway? I mean, sure, he's the prince, but ....
Urgh, that orange kinda hurt my eyes. The red looked much better, but I mean, the tights led me into thinking he was a she when I first saw the box >.>

omg, yes the war sequences are AWESOME <3 Just... don't do what I did lol; when I got to name my army, I didn't think the name would include 'The' by default, so my army name is "The The Red Lynx Army". Thankfully I kept the same in mind for my fortress lol

Suiko2's protag used tonfas, and was pretty cool. He even had an awesome Union attack with his sister lol.

Grr. If there's anything I hate about developers and publishers, it's that they tend to keep the good games Japan exclusive. I mean, that was part of the incentive for me to start studying Japanese, but still! It's like how Capcom ported both Mega Man Legends and Breath of Fire III to PSP, but never gave us the handheld ports! THEY SUCK SO MUCH, BUT WE LOVE THEM ANYWAY

That 'should' is more of a 'need' :P
