Played some Wild Arms 4. Pleasant as always...I may be tempted to speed running this game. This game is not at all difficult to pick up once you understand most battles go like this:

Is it Raquel's turn? --> Yes; Can you use Intrude? Yes -> Use intrude # of times allowed + attack. Repeat
                           --> No --> Statboost Raquel/debuff enemy. Make it Raquel's turn.

I guess it's time to finally give these guys a chance. I havent played gold/silver yet (probably wont), but I'd like to give these guys a shot. Also...

The Hoenn confirmed thing will finally be put to rest.

...And before long, people will shout for Sinnoh.

Will they? I always thought Sinnoh was the black sheep. :P

I would kill for a remake of Sinnoh. Odd enough, I really, really liked Sinnoh.

Suiko definitely has lovely art.  I wonder if they work in teams on that one?  Not just because of the quantity of characters, but I find it hard to think one artist has such a diverse imagination for so many unique characters....

I saw the Demon Gaze review on the site.  Got annoyed.  Looks like the same artist who was responsible for this ridiculous ensemble on Saber:




PANTSUUUUUU. >___>

I actually get less annoyed by more deliberately revealing outfits.  THis is just impractical and silly looking.  HERE'S UNDERWEAR is all I get from it.

I wasn't a fan of Saber's outfit in this game. Much preferred her traditional outfit that was cool.

Just got "DEATHSMILES IIX Music Pack Contents Original Sound Track" in the mail today, and I must say, this is a very, very pleasant album. When I got to track 06 Field C, I with hit with this strong familiarity, like I've heard it before (which was not the case!). The reason why it was so familiar--and I guessed this right when I gave a wild guess about it--is that it was composed by Michiko Naruke. My Wild ARMS series soundtrack listening prepared me for this moment (haha). ;)

I only knew Iwadare was on the soundtrack for the Final boss theme (which was hilarious). What tipped me off that it was Naruke was the percussion and the use of strings. Enjoy: (I'll just follow suit and do Ygg's pic/track link [I'll also throw in some dragon quest as well]) :)



Track 06
Field C


Disc 2; Track 11
Sky, Ocean and Earth

Working on some music transcriptions for Wild ARMS 3 & 4. They are coming out pretty well. I've gotten most of the melody line for the WA4 track and all of the melody line for the WA3 one. It's a shame I can't find any midis of Wild Arms 3 - 5 (there's like 1 or two). That's fine, this is good practice for me and a really relaxing hobby. I appreciate that I don't have to search the menus for the tempo change in Audacity...it makes transcribing that much simpler.

Suik 3 - Picked up Detective Conan and OH MY GOD :D :D 8D

Also in Chrono Cross, if you use a gameshark to permanently set 801F4fe8 to 0000 (I think the code would literally just be 801F4fe8 0000), you stop getting stat-ups entirely. SCIENCE!

I'm assuming you're talking about Kidd. Great sidequest, eh? :)

For the first time in years, I called out sick from work. I woke up to my dinner last night violently attempting to escape my insides. I remember someone putting a picture up on tbe pics threqd about man flu and how men are basically babies about being sick....yeah, fuck you whoever posted that, I saw fucking stars from how much pain I was in.

I hope you feel better, sir. I rarely get sick, but when I do...I'm out for half a week (sometimes the whole week). This reminds me...

I had a short conversation yesterday before work with one of our workers about a foot pain that we apparently shared almost the exact symptoms (mine in my left, and hers in the right). It was ironic, amusing, but also frustrating that the general response we received from others were either 'try using a special sole' or 'you'll be fine' kind of deal. While I do appreciate words of wisdom/'comfort' of the sort, I don't think telling someone to 'man up' (regardless of gender) or saying 'you'll be fine' is the best choice of words in most cases.

While I understand there are different levels of pain severity we experience, and that sometimes we really do have to just put up with it (or 'man up'), but perhaps it would be best to say "I hope you feel better". If it's a physical pain, then I would even recommend expressing interest in the person's well being and see if you can find a solution, which actually leads me to work shift later that night...

I work as a customer service representative (front store cashier) for a pharmacy, so we receive two kinds of calls: front store and pharmacy calls. Before reaching either department, you go through an automated phone menu to decide which dept. you need to contact with. However, the other night towards 2 hours before closing, the pharmacy's phone line stopped working (incredibly, incredibly bad). This lead for all pharmacy calls to be directed to front store, with the additional of regular calls. So, this lead me to juggle two types of calls, which assisting customers at check out. It was interesting, frustrating, and--get read for it--a little exciting to multi-task...

I'll have to finish this story and tell you the point of it after work (just found out i have to go in earlier)...write to ya soon. ;)



Continuing on with the story...

More or less I had to deal with very upset pharmacy customers who tell me that they were on hold for 30 minutes (I'm impressed by their patience!). I had to place them on hold while tending the register, which was increasing steadily (I had to call for register assistance eventually), as well think of a solution for those on the line, because pharmacy was short handed and couldn't take the calls at the front (and/or I don't think they could have anyways).

The solution? It was so obvious, but it didn't hit me until 10-15 minutes later of hold ups/front store assistance: just have pharmacy call them directly (got the customer's phone number and forward it to the pharmacy [yes, it was tedious, but a solution!]). It's insane that it was as simple as that, but it didn't hit me until things became a little overbearing. It was one of those ah-ha! moments I usually have in puzzle/detective/point and click games.


I could have told the customers on the phone to call at a later time or check back tomorrow (not a very good ideas towards the end of the night and no assurance of the phone problem fixing, which could lead to scripts piling up and creating an avalanche for poor pharmacy), but I rather wanted to take an interest and stab at fixing the problem. Thankfully, the solution was made apparent to me (thankfully again!). In regards to a person's well being, sometimes you won't find a solution and they will need to head to a specialist, but it's always a good feeling to help others and be helped as well. Even receiving kind words of encouragement or best wishes enjoyable (sometimes I'd like a sack of money to fall from the sky). Yeah I'm tired, I got work tomorrow at 7am. time to clock out. I don't even know what I'm typing anymore.

Foot pain is awful.  You need to move around, you need to orient yourself in many different ways, many times a day, and perform all sorts of actions.  So yeah, a "boo boo" on your foot/leg, sucks a whole *lot*. 


Indeed! I just wear flip flops or sandals whenever I get a chance and not try to do work outs that involve running (for now at least).
