Congrats on the new part-time job Dice. Hopefully it'll help you until a full-time position becomes available.

I'm working on motivation so I can finish FFXIII-2 and Fire Emblem 3DS: Awakening this week while the Mrs. is oversees two weeks for work. It's like being a bachelor all over again, kinda weird. I've been going through my media backlog of movies, DVR, anime and honey-dos I've meaning to get around to.

Speaking of work. On a more serious note, I'm contemplating a major career change that would require me to go to community college at night for one to three years max if I decide to commit to it while I maintain my day job. If I switch fields to nursing, I could potentially have higher job security, stability and opportunity to move up in a new career.

For me it would be the final area of FFXIII. Fights/encounters were taking me super long to finish. I saw the game over screen a few times, lost patience and gave up over time. I always meant to return to it and finish it, but never got around to it. Funny thing is, I'm getting strange deja vu with FFXIII-2 right now. The encounters aren't difficult conversely, yet I just feel like I'm lost in a maze in the final area. Hopefully, I can figure it out and beat it this week.

I wonder if it'll be announcement on the Shin Megami Tensei*/Fire Emblem Wii U merge game they've been working on. It's rumored (confirmed?) that Nintendo will showcase the work in progress at this years' E3. I've been searching the web for more stories on it since E3 is now just a month away, but nothing really more than a teaser video that was previewed Jan 23rd, 2013 via Nintendo Direct https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OK5-EIzDtKo. Apologies if this discussed in Fire Emblem thread or misc. game news.

Edit: *"Shin Megami Tensei" fixed from original "Persona"

Because I watch Game of Thrones with my wife, who is always tired and never feels like watching it, we only just watched episode 6 of season 3. We even have HBO now, and still can't watch it as it airs. I should have just watched it on my own. hpmh.

I'm totally into Breaking Bad now. In the middle of season 2. Jessie is an idiot. And I want to strangle Walter for continually piling on the lies.

Enjoying watching Cosmos every week as well.


Haha.. too funny man, my wife is the exact way. She's got to be alert and in the mood for Game of Thrones. Usually she prefers the light and fully sitcoms on tv like New Girl, How I Met Your Mother (now concluded), and Big Bang Theory. No knocks against those shows -- just not really my thing. We're only on Season 2, but I'm in no rush since I read the books and know what will happen spoiler free from the internet spoiling every single little detail. Got season 3 on blu-ray and I'm DVRing the current season.

Interesting you mention Breaking Bad. I've never watched that show, but I saw an extremely polished supercut of the show in 10 minutes or less reflecting on the (d)evolution of Walter White. I don't know if I can sit down to watch the whole show, it's a bit dark/depressing for me, but I do think the acting was well done from watching the supercut.

Right now I'm caught up on Person of Interest and awaiting the finale which is leading up to be great. Also, I'm stoked they renewed the show to return this fall for season 4.

Wow thanks for the well-thought out post Aeolus. I think I'll definitely start with the Future Past pack since I do enjoy the kid supporting characters of the main cast -- then look at the other two you recommended. Funny, totally unrelated but when I read "Future Past" I immediately thought of the X-Men movie coming out later this year.

Are the DLC packages worth it in this game for the added stories/maps/chars? $6.50 seems a little steep for me (after recently purchasing Pokemon X&Y) so I'm playing conservative with my gaming budget at this point. I'm currently somewhere between ch. 20 & 21 so I know I don't have too many chapters left.

We're over the hill at 24, study says
http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/04/140414172240.htm

*The researchers analyzed the digital performance records of 3,305 StarCraft 2 players, aged 16 to 44.

Now I know why all the strategic fighters in Ender's game were all youngins'.

FFXIII-2 - Final area of the game, but haven't really had the chance to play with my wife playing Tales of Xillia everyday. Heh!

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze - Stuck on a vine level that's driving me nuts... Arg...

Fire Emblem: Awakening - Loving the game so far. I'm taking my time through the game developing my characters for fun. I'm on Chapter 10. This is the first Fire Emblem game that I've spent considerable time on. Did I mention I love tactical/strategy RPGs?

I'm trying decide what 3DS game to pick up next after this one. I may try to download or buy mini-cartridge for older Fire Emblem (2)DS games. Either that or pick up Pokemon X&Y so I can see what all the fuss is about since most of my fellow RPGFan friends I'm ablinked up with are playing those two titles. Seeing as I've only played Bravely Default and Fire Emblem: Awakening for my (still) new 3DS XL any recommendations are welcome. ^_^

I think, of all things, Mario Kart 8 is really delivering what the system is capable of as well, it's *gorgeous*
http://youtu.be/__qp9iPKeNs

Was thinking, oh.. another Mario Kart game. This one looks great though. Backgrounds look smoother, more detail & contrast. The glider option to the carts was surprising and cool to see as well. I also agree with Klutz, this is one of those misc. games you can play with family and friends, laugh and have a good time. I have Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze to keep me busy until I pick this one up, but I'm def. interested.

Not as epic as "The Touch" from my childhood 80s classic "Transformers the Movie", but Stan Bush still has some impressive guitar riffs in his latest:

For my buddies on here playing FFX and FFX-2 remastered, two songs from YouTube's Smooth McGroove acapella master:

And one more "To Zanarkand" cover from a YouTube pianist I'm learning piano from (via his YouTube playlist), Andrew Furmanczyk:

Watched season and show finale of How I Met Your Mother last night. I'm amazed the show ran as long as it did. There were some good seasons and some "ok" seasons. All in all, a good show. The whole final season focused on one long weekend leading up to Barney and Robin's wedding, meanwhile Ted is supposed to finally get introduced to the mother, so there were all these close calls to meeting the mother explained in the end. There were some surprises I won't spoil here, but sorta sad and happy the show is ending. It was the one show my wife and I DVR and watched together for years. She watches New Girl, Big Bang Theory, Once Upon a Time & O.U.A.T in Wonderland, while I really just DVR one show: Person of Interest.

Beat Bravely Default last night. Loved the ending. If my TV is not being used for DVR purposes, I'll use the freedom to finish FFXIII-2 this week. I have 130-40ish/160 fragments, but can't really do a whole lot more until post-game opportunities open up to tie up loose ends. In the meantime I'll probably start up Fire Emblem: Awakening (3DS).

Maybe somebody can answer me this not actually condescending question that is going to sound condescending... why max out every asterisk? You can only have 2 job abilities at once and like 2-4 skills depending on how they cost. I maxed out like 5 useful asterisks and stopped and beat the game.

Personally, I did it so I can experiment for the "fun" factor of abilities in battle. Each ability has a description when you scroll over the feature as you know, (I don't know if my experience was the same for other players) but I just liked experimenting with the gameplay when I stacked certain job abilities so they could play off or enhance a given player's attack magical or physical based on the buff from another player.
