Beat SN:TA at 15 hours and 25 minutes. I ended up pairing Reiha with Lila and all I got was a cheap charm, more dialog, and an extra scene ending with her almost giving Reiha the 'I wonder what she looks like nekkid?' look (<.<). All in all I'd say it was worth it since that as close as I'm going to get with a game that's for ages 6-10 (>.>). After all the nuisances the plot essentially boils down to plucky kids save the world from human corruption and greed with some blatant acts of ignorance from those meddling kids and their damned Auron wannabe. At least some characters and some moments liven things up like Lila and Arlus. The controls are alright with my only real issue is how much you have to tap on something to use it like a skill (once to select it from the palette, again to activate it, and finally to target and use it). I never used Beasts, hardly used any other attack skills outside of the starting ones (though the ones I had saw plenty of use along with many of the support skills), had no need for grinding, and never saw the Game Over screen. There were a couple of optional escort missions but they gave me the most trouble in this game since the AI was suicidal and some of these missions took place in hazard filled territory where the target would quickly die. At least you get two tries to complete the mission. There was nothing was out and out great in terms of music, but there weren't any real duds either. The VAing had it's moments (most notably the villainous mastermind's commanding SILENCE!!! which just sounded goofy) although the VAing in general never really exceeded single lines of dialog. The monotony factor is pretty high since after the first couple of stages the game runs out of things to throw at you, but it didn't really set in for me until I reached near the end where the plot was simply trying to drag things out as much as possible.

As for other games I've been slowed down to a crawl in MM:BN2 (I'll give you a hint it starts with Massive, ends with Quest, and involves lots of Fetching things). At least I've finally have myself a far more solid folder (I'm really pushing the Gater Program Advance which is this game's Stone Man/Shadow Man).

As for EP I want to get through the first boss fight on the right branch of the second stratum but I can't even get to the fight to begin with, and so far I've tried to capture and kill both of the required Majin as well doing one of each to each and it still no go. At this point I'm guessing it's taking me far too long to capture/kill for me to draw out the boss (the stage is large, very hard to maneuver through, and starts me off in a bad position).

I've also beaten Megaman IV (GB) and boy I can tell that it was the first handheld MM game to be taken seriously since they now have cutscenes, second rounds with the robot masters, and even in game dialog (it also debuted the now standard shop which took till MM VII on the SuperNES for it to reach the consoles). Having done this I've now beaten every handheld MM game that isn't BN, SF, or PSP remakes.

I'm still pissed that Felix turned into such a bastard. (Why Kid Icarus!? Why!? ;_;)

Edit: Wait, I just remembered that he also played Nightwing from Beast Machines. Nevermind.

I've finally got Thage's group past the second boss when I remembered that I don't need to abuse combo's with her group as much as Olifen's, plus Thagey herself is a walking tactical nuke so long as you keep her from the front lines so she has no trouble whatsoever with rock monsters. I'm trying to get Olifen's group to fight the second boss on the right route, but the stage says otherwise (thanks to those two two by two majin that need to be captured while making a couple of trench runs on them and the rest of the enemies).

I've also beaten Megaman III on the Gameboy which leaves GB IV, Powered Up, the two Power Fighters, the Wily Wars, Battle & Chase, that one NES monopoly game, and the PC ports for original series. I've also made it to Wily's Space Battleship in GB IV.

Nothing to report on the SN:TA or MM:BN2 fronts though.

Oh and I was off on the number of games I purchased between the 15th and the 22nd of this month. It was 27 not 26 games (I forgot to include MM:BN2). If I were to start at the 8th the number would be 30 (and I still haven't gotten Xenosaga III yet >.<).

I can't think of a GOOD movie from o-eh that I've seen! But I nominate Indy 4 for turd of the year. Fridge Logic ftl.

Man, Felix is a total dick!  I never liked the guy to begin with but JESUS!  Also, if he doesn't stop crying about his friggin' leg I'm going to lose it. Get over it!

How the hell did you post that EC? I've JUST regained my vision after watching last nights BSG, and I still haven't been able to go to sleep yet (too many images of Adama X Roslin. God damn reckoning! *_*)

Right now I'm farming the Undernet in MM:BN2 for upgrades, chips, and cash so that I can get strong enough to fight the V3 Navi's, and because my folder currently sucks (I'm still using Hi-Cannons, Lil Boomers, and Heal 50s, also I only have one Water and Wood elemental chip and the Water one sucks). Otherwise I've still returning from the Plane Jacking and doing other miscellaneous sidequests on the side.

Still nothing worth mentioning on either the EP or SN:TA fronts, but I did manage to get a third bag of games yesterday which brings my total amount of game acquisition over the last week to about 26. (I blame it on excellent timing and a good sense of bargain hunting.)

He did get it on with Starbuck, though...

Wait! When did he do that?

To update from my previous post I've finished watching Code Geass, and I've started up on The Tower of Druaga: Second Quest, and already it's as hilarious as the first season.

I've also been watching the Gundam 00 Season 1 on Scifi (which means I'm on like episode 18 or 20). It's a bit heavy handed with it's messages but it's still worth watching.

I would be watching Casshern: Sins, Tytania, and Mighty Birdy: Season 2 if I can find me some subs for them.

I'm also tempted to start up Linebarrels of Iron again (I didn't like the main character at all, but the fight scenes were just gorgeous).
