Completely unrelated to the current discussion, but I found the article quite hilarious and somewhat relevant to the thread.

Rather like the Samsung Galaxy mobile phone — the Samsung Frontier is apparently a washing machine or dryer!

I don't know how but it could be done, I suspect.

wouldn't it be awesome if that thing would announce things like "NEUER REKORD" in Graf Eisens voice. ("EXPLOSION" while loading a new game might get one into trouble while playing in public, though)

Anyone know a website that still has copies of Nanoha A's for sale, or any ideas for a website that might have copies available? I've already tried eBay, amazon, and every website ANN links to.

Oh good, I was starting to worry that they've abandoned it since the Namco's webpage hadn't been updated in the past few months.

Seems like they've tweaked the spells of the Materials a bit so that they're no longer just Pallete Swaps of the main trio. That's good.

Hmm... who was the female voice speaking when Tohma was fighting? Was that the Book of the Silver Cross or Lily?

And I see that Mamiko Noto has now given her husky voice to another lesbian. Excuse me while I squee XD.

Wait a minute, were Vivio and Einhart capable of sustained flight in Vivid?

[up][up] A Wizard Did It xD

I wonder what's the excuse for why Tohma isn't able to curbstomp EVERYONE on the cast, he has Lily and is a Zero Driver meaning he can(plotwise) shrug off practically everything the A's/Materials cast can throw at him and pierce their magical defenses like if those were inexistent, the only ones with plausible posibilities are the Florian sisters because they came from the future so probably they already posses measures to deal with the Eclipse.

[up] I was thinking about that the other day. Maybe having Lily on board overrides the book's control of him, which might explain why it doesn't just fire off Divider Zero / whatever it used on Isis and win instantly.

As for the rest of his eclipse anti-magic-hax... I havent the foggiest tongue

For the same reason your local Evil Overlord doesn't send his Elite Mooks after you until you've managed to kill two cities worth of his troops.

I was thinking about this, but would anyone agree that Cypha counts under Informed Ability compared to the rest of the Huckebeins? Aki posted an All There in the Manual thing on Animesuki that basically said 'oh, she's like, really strong', and that rang of it to me given how much she's really done.

Heh, more or less. Cypha's NEXT design says a lot of stuff of how great she is and even go as far as presenting her as "Here's Cypha, Huckebein's number one swordswoman ...who is able to defeat Agito and Signum!". That's right, just to be sure that the reader by casuality don't forget about it Tsuzuki decided to keep pushing Signum's defeat down our throats, like if it's the only feasible testament of Cypha's supposed awesomeness.

Curren already had surpassed Cypha by faaaaar doing much more impressive stuff with a lot less effort(Cypha have a pretty hard time fighting someone with inferior equipement while Curren just curbstomped two strong opponents(one of them being a very pissed Vita) who are already armed with the new Anti-Eclipse weapons and does that with a sword that wasn't even a divider(and thus demonstrating how an undeniable Badass she is by winning easily without even resot to exploit her Eclipse Driver haxed abilities).

After that, Cypha's achievement got old pretty quickly and she hasn't done anything memorable after that which is a waste of the hype she gathered and also an insult to Signum because she basically lost to a Badass-wannabe like Cypha.

Competitive Balance

Never played the previous game but I doubt Reinforce was able to curbstomp everyone there (in anything but the story mode, at least), even though she should have.

[up] That and the fact that Reinforce was somehow weakened after the release of the Dark Pieces and only have her full powers(and insane brokeness) when "Evil" or becoming "Unison Reinforce" with Hayate.

Yup, pretty much. The Reinforce we see in the first game was slowly losing her powers.

As for Tohma in this game, well... Einhart might have an excuse since she's using the fighting style that Klaus had, and since he was a legendary hero during the days when the Book of the Silver Cross and the Eclipse was most active, it's probably reasonable to believe that his fighting style might have been designed to handle people with Anti-Magic too.

As for everyone else... Maybe the explanation for the battles against Tohma is less "knock him out" and more "cause him to flee"? Or maybe getting dragged into an Alternate Timeline removes the Anti-Magic effect? ...yeah, no idea. <<;

[up]Kaiser Arts seem to be more about punching people in the face (granted with magically enhanced attacks, but punching them in the face nonetheless), than mostly pure magical combat. As being a trained martial artist is kinda a given, it would probably offset some if not most inconveniences of anti-magic.

True, and you could also say the same for Vivio and her Strike Arts, especially since she's also being trained in pure martial arts by Nove. Arf too since she's always been more about brawling physically than using spells.

So that leaves the three Aces, their evil twins, and Yuuno.

...wait, I just remembered something. People with the Eclipse aren't always on Anti-Magic. It only goes in effect when they've fused with the Dividers or something. So maybe something like that will be used for Tohma (i.e., Anti-Magic only activates when he's in Full Drive mode).
