@Kevadu: Agreed.

Index/Finger is the only 3rd party ticket that can poke through the partisan gridlock and point us in the right direction for a brighter tomorrow.

So cargo cult game design?

So basically Trump's got a good chance at winning because he's doing the thing he did in the primaries where he's only getting like 40% of the vote but the remaining 60% if dividing between Clinton, Stein, and Johnson enough that nobody else is going to get over 40%. Yeeeeeeeeeey.

@ Klyde: I think I asked this but did you ever read through the WORLD HISTORY things in Legend of Mana? You get them from some of the characters in the game, but the INFORMATION guide on gamefaqs has them all typed up.

Zwei - Got up to chapter 5. Difficulty shift after episode 3 is considerable.

Also just since I was playing it recently, something about Morrowind's Dunmer settlements /really/ reminds me of the aesthetics in the Panzer Dragoon games. I think it's the prevalence of weird masks, mutants, and everything being really chitinous. What happened to Bethesda's worldbuilding department after Morrowind :(

Way of the Samurai 1 - So basically the Boku no Natsuyasumi games got me wanting some explore japan funtimes. WOTS1 seems pretty cool but it's more focused on technically sword combat and decision making, and less on the exploration side of things. So I think I'll pass on it for now and maybe... I don't know, pick up Okamoi again.

Jade Cocoon - ALONG THOSE LINES, THOUGH! Talked to Koris. I have no idea who that is cause I started playing this in 2013 and immediately forgot about it. Anyway, opened up dragonfly forest. Trying to level up some fire-type bugmons.

ToP - Finished Dhaos' Castle; off to find a unicron. Dhaos' Castle had a number of little puzzley bits in them that I was /not fond of/.

Clarifying on this: There's one part where Cless and Arche have to press some buttons at the same time, one after the other, but the controls for walking on the map are NOT AT ALL precise enough for this (ie they're normal JRPG controls so sort the imprecision generally doesn't matter at all).

Second, there's some other part where you have to leave Arche behind so that she can fly up through a hole in the floor elsewhere. There's not really a good indication that she'd be able to do this (she can fly but there was no precedent for puzzles involving it). Also the hole isn't really that near to her. So yeah that was offputting.

(Previous puzzle I had to consult a walkthrough for I'll forgive because it's entirely because of a Japanese pun that didn't really work out in English).

I was just reading a wikipedia article on common US mango cultivars and it was basically

<Tommy Atkins> You guys should check out my mango cultivar.
<Florida Mango Association> These are terrible.
<Tommy Atkins> How 'bout you go !#%^ yourselves

you know that thing when you're playing videogames on a blurry CRT TV back in the late 90s and you totally miss the blatant tanuki nards in the background art and then 16 years later they just smack you right in the face

you know that thing when you're trying to run an art museum and some damn kid keeps running through it with their damp walrus.


VOOT - Bal Bados is pretty magical.

Zwei - Still can't get bast Episode 4. Blargle.

Yo being perfectly honest but I don't understand most of the issues that people are really getting into this election. Like, what's the TPP and why should I have an opinion on it? What is "Wall Street" coded language for???

doug's facial anatomy is unnerving, cause the tiny eyes. also in some frames he's got this weird lip thing going on and he just looks like someone wearing someone ELSE'S skin.

Minor hint, phrased as a question, but spoilering it anyway:

I think David says something about Amalette giving Lil' Cactus a ride. What characters have you encountered so far giving /other/ characters rides?


FONV - At Hidden Valley Ranch Bunker. Fixed a computer virus the hard way which was... ultimately funner. ED-E's personal quest advanced a bit. (Also it took me like three tries to get here cause the first time deathclaws happened and the second time which was the first time because I got these backwards I stepped on some mines outside of a powder ganger fun party.)

I know I got other things I really want to play and watching my playtime counter tick past 70 hours is something, but... I'm really enjoying this :<

(Also briefly screwed around with Virtual-On with a 360 controller and discovered that I don't really like the twin stick control scheme that much and that the DC-style controls are fine for me [except for the analogue on the DC not being great). I'd assumed you could turn while walking with the twin stick setup, but you actually can't.

i don't want to bang anyone ever for lots of reasons!

I wish that the Republican National Convention was a lot more like Bronycon, in terms of conventions

and by that i mean it needs more under-the-table porn sales.

also i'm a sinner cause when i hear bluelives matter i just

Both cases are easy holes to fall into since unfortunately the game doesn't tell you which quests you might have active or have completed beyond Lil'Cactus' journal (which isn't particularly reliable for a number of reasons) and what areas you have available (which only really helps with the Dragoon arc since that's 80% going to a new area for the next quest), and you can easily wind up running multiple quests at once (see also: Lil'Cactus' quest).

You definitely have a quest log. idk how detailed it is but it does show active/completed status.

And yeah the Jumi story's ostensibly the /main/ main one since it's a little over twice as long as the other two and the Fairy one has the most to do with the... game's internal theology/what goes down in the ending quest. (Also if you did the Seven Wisdoms thing with Bud you should have a bunch of in-game books and the rabbithole of backstory/conjecture they contain).


Aquanaut's Holiday 2 - Found the /ancient sea/ which is creepy as hell because the frozen woolly mammoths (since when did woolly have two l's) frozen to the entrance.

FONV - Did High Times and that bit where the dues try to mug you. Veronica wants me to go back to the BoS with her now I guess.

Wait I thought the Dragoon Arc DID give you the mana tree artifact and opened up the end game? or at least triggers the thing at your house that does?

2016 is everyone has a power drill pointed at somebody's head and a power drill pointed at their own head and is walking forward slowly.

And Donald Trump's a slow ride in the back of a car on the hottest day of the year up to a house in the mountains, the bunker underneath from which you know you'll never be returning.
