Also Suikoden is based off of the Chinese story Water Margin and China loves putting vampires in everything, even if they completely change what vampires even does, like in Magic Cop or The Twins Effect.

2014 as a whole was a lot of exhausting bullshit.

~~

1. Suikoden 3 and Eschatos.

2. Crimzon Clover: World Ignition - I think this is from 2013, but 2014 was the US release so wevz. All around fantastic, with my only issue being that it might be a little TOO hard. Also that it got me interested in Japanese doujin games in general, which... well, I talk about it below.

3. Tempted to say TitS, although that's just the US version of a game from like whenever.

Freedom Planet - Talked about this elsewhere, but the levels just keep going on and on and don't really do anything interesting. Also endless cutscenes. It's not really bad, it just has this 90s shareware vibe to it.

Valkyria - More endless cutscenes! Also getting A-ranks is entirely based on route memorization. I don't dislike it by any means, it's just not something I want to spend time on.

Astebreed's just a goddamn mess and I have no idea why it's being well received by the shmup community, Gigantic Army had boring level designs and bullet spongey bosses.

Gunhound - Not actually playable on a keyboard, because you can't remap the keys. NEAT!

And in terms of older stuff that I played for the first time in 2014, Vesperia went a long way towards killing my interest in RPGs.

Uh... I think Banished is the only 2014 game I got that I've yet to play.

NOTHING BUT MARIBEL AND YANGUS.

THAT IS ALL.

High level languages are more expressive, but there are definitely some things you can't do with them, or can't do well with them, that you can in lower level languages. Neither Scheme nor C# would really be well suited for writing something like Dosbox. Also graphics engines written in C# tend to run a lot worse than they really /should/.

MY FAVORITE CHRISTMAS SONG IS MILLIE PULLED A PISTOL ON SANTA.

THAT IS ALL.

This tells you everything you need to know about Dublin, OH.

Also man I wanted to write a gameboy emulator in C# because:

A) Need to learn C# for work.
B) Lots of legally available GB homebrew to test it with.
C) Relatively simple system.

Except now I want to write it in Racket, because that would be more /interesting/, but would have no use for my job at all.

I just wish Falcom would do digital distribution of their old PC games, translated or not. Mona^2 is pretty fun and I wouldn't mind playing the full version.

Or any Japanese PC game dev, really. idk why as a whole they're so averse to making money.

I fucking love Saturn/NAOMI/Dreamcast-era Sega. It's like

OKAY WHAT IF WE CRAZY TAXI
BUT THEN YOU FISH FOR ZEBRAS.

Beyond that though I think the reason why I'm liking Sonic Adventure is that the levels are pretty short and only have you do something once. I always felt like 2D Sonic levels were like the same section repeated three times per act.

Oh hey LoX1 is basically Ys. Want :DDD

Ya I'm talking Dublin, OH. Do you even have PF Panerapotles in Theuk?
12  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: December 18, 2014, 10:52:21 PM
I bought Civ 4 from steam sales. I bet I'm going to suck at it, but I've always felt I need to give it a try.

Try Europe Universalis 3/4 or Crusader Kings 2 -- the whole point there is to suck /fantastically/.

Sonic Adventure - Did Tail's Sky Chase and didn't realize that I could lock onto enemies and that this was basically Panzer Dragoon WHICH I WAS PLAYING LAST WEEK. I am not smart. Also did some Knuckles thing.

I don't like PF Changs it's just like, my office is on the fucking outskirts of Dublin so dining options are:

- PF Changs
- BJs (fuck ew. Found... foreign non-food objects in food here)
- Noodles and Company (also found bugs in food here)
- Panera
- World's shittiest sushi restaurant
- World's other shittiest sushi restaurant
- Starbucks
- Macaroni Grill (ew)
- World's shittiest Chipotle (found... foreign non-food objects in food here again).
- The Subway where the guy got fired for rubbing his dick on the bread.
- World's shittiest greek restaurant.
- Gas station (also found bugs in food here)
- Alrightish Chinese restaurant but the woman that owns it is fucking psychotic and I don't want to deal with her.
- Cafeteria, where food options include "clif bars" and "Sun chips".

Protip: If you're at like PF Changs and you get a huge chunk of bok choy, check under the goddamn stems for caterpillars.

God my soul is barfing.
