  • I’m liking Fate GO, its a good game, sure there’s microtransactions and all but you really just don’t need them, plus as a big fan of the Fate series being able to play this game is great 😀 also, if anyone was wondering why the character for Zhuge Liang looks like Waver, is because he’s hosting the spirit inside his body as El-melloi (Waver) can’t become a Heroic spirit on his own

  • What, did you forget me? I am the only guy who could do what both eggman and nega couldnt do – i killed sonic.
