To be fair, I think Selphie and Irving actually did SOMETHING after disc 1.

... Now I wonder if everyone was supposed to die at the missile base in some earlier version of the script because that's pretty much the exact point where Quistis especially ceases to exist as a character.

I used to use kefir instead of sour cream on stuff. Generally lower fat and a better nutrient pile. Also since it was more liquidy it was less pron to clumping and not getting evenly dispersed.

... I wonder if I can get seasonal Kefir flavors still. Hrm.

I also wonder if people would've found the orphanage scene in FFVIII less distasteful if the game had been up-front about the memory loss stuff -- like instead of having it come out of nowhere, if the game outright mentioned that the main characters had memory loss issues but were vaguely aware that they knew eachother somehow, and used the orphanage bit as a cathartic flash of remembrance instead of as a basically irrelevant plot twist.

I always felt that's what they were actually going for there in any case.

Honestly, I feel like if I get ten solid hours out of a game I got my moneys worth. ... As I said, I'm bad at finishing games, though.

@ Klyde, I want to mention this as like a... sort-of complaint against LO but it's not really a complaint because I dig it but it's sort of wonky.

Code:
I noticed a few points where the game has some pronounced leaps of logic. Which admittedly aren't worse than any other JRPG but like... That scene in Numara on Disc 1 where Kaim and Seth are like 'Gongara stole our memories CLEARLY HE WANTS TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD' seemed kind of abrupt to me.

Exceeeeeeeeeeeept I'm wondering if that's actually intentional. The abruptness and leaps. Because there's a huge theme of /dreams/ in the game and those kind of free associative jumps are typical of dream logic. The way cutscenes are framed, the way the story sometimes bounces around between different places, etc. It all feels really dream-like. It's surreal in a way I've not been able to pin down beyond that.

idk i haven't gamed prpoerly in day.s

Got like six pounds of jackfruit. idk how to open this but SCIENCE.

Also think I might try playing an /untranslated videogame/ with all the weird Mongolian hieroglyphs and everything! And possibly blog about it on the other board. SCIENCE!

--- edit ---

Okay, finished cutting up the jackfruit. ONLY TOOK ME LIKE AN HOUR.

Lost Odyssey - Doing the Crimson Forest for realsies now. I'm rather fond of it when RPGs treat magic as something that's meant to be used instead of as something that's meant to be stockpiled as a last resort.

Also tried out the The Talos Principle demo. The The Sea Will Claim Everything guy is involved, as is Croteam and the The Swapper guy so I'm super interested.

I don't drive, so I take the bus a lot. Even in good weather, I see little tiny sports cars cutting off the bus.

YOU DUMB BASTARDS!

(My favorite thing though is when there was like a foot of standing water on one of the road on my bus route, and there were tiny sports cars stalling out in it. Because the bus can just plow through like a foot of standing water like it's nothing.)

Anyway, this is some seriously January weather right now fffff :T

So apparently segue is actually pronounced like Segway, and not /seg/.

Really glad I've never actually used the word segue in conversation before.

I can't pronounce "Order an Arnold Palmer" correctly either which is probably a big reason why I quit drinking them.

I felt like Lunar: TSSSC actually pulled off, for the most part (let's ignore anything involving Mythe/Mythe's tower), that sort of /really juvenile/ humor.

Every other game where WD did that, not so much. I think it worked with Lunar's tone for the most part, whereas in something like Alundra which was largely /a lot darker/ than Lunar, you get situations where it's all an old man just died :< LOL BUTTS.

It's situations where the humor runs /against/ then narrative instead of coming from the actions that the characters do /in character/ that gets to me.

Actually I thought The Longest Journey had some issues with tone.

Anyway.

Viva Pinata 2: Converted a sour shellybean (after trying to feed it thistle seeds, because I can't read). Sour Flapbat doesn't want my garlics though. I don't really know what actually changed but I do find this quite a lot more engaging than the first game.

I usually just break up larger pieces of cheese with my hands and a paper towel, and strictly use my knives for opening packages.

... I am not good at things.

Anyway, apartment shopping.

I can't find any apartments online with good reviews and I'm wondering if apartment reviews are even reliable. I guess I should look for specific /things/ in the reviews, idk.

Like, my apartment right now I think has an average of 1 or 2 stars out of five on most places I check. There are things I don't like about living here, but it is NOT that bad. My only really *huge* complaint is that they shut the heat of too early and take too long getting it on.

idkidkidk I guess I should look in particular for reviews mentioning structural damage and electrical problems. Those are my two biggest concerns.

Paralyzed by indecision :TTT

I also started drinking caffeine again because being sober isn't very fun.

Anyone else ever get an album as MP3s and then get it as a physical version because you liked it so much?

(Or because the digital storefront you got it from went the way of Mr. Bojangle's dog).

--- edit ---

I went to the asian market and got durian chips, baos, and sesame dango. The durian chips are great, the sesame dango is kind of weird but I think I like it. The vegetables in the baos are kind of dry though, and the mushrooms woody :<

The exclusive New 3DS content is actually being able to play as something that's not a Deku Scrub.

I kind of hated Have One on Me the first time I heard it, so...

I think one of the things with Chrono Cross is that it has a bunch of things early on that look like some huge retcons (Namely, El Nido existing) and they're not /actually/ retcons and there's a reason for them but you don't really get an explanation for this until like, about halfway through the game, in the Dead Sea, and JRPGs being what they are I don't think many players necessarily trusted Square to actually give some resolution, especially after z. B. FFVIII went into similarly weird territory and legits never really explained some major things, not even in a cagey, ambiguous way. 

Or that was my original issue with it anyway.

(Also the game does give the initial impression that it's a LOT more depressing than it ends up being.

Code:
In particular, Lucca, Crono, and Marle are apparently dead, the assertion that humans screwed up everything, and that Serge in particular undid everything that happened in CT by merely existing. Except you end up fixing the latter two problems over the course of the game, I don't think there's any indication that Home!Lucca's dead, and I always felt like Guadia falling = Crono and Marle are dead was kind of a stretch considering how bloodless Porre's occupation of Termina was?

Oh my god I am a nerd.
)

Valkyria Chronicles - Did the Cloudbuster thing. Really digging the story here (even if the cutscene length is still a bit uneven SORRY I LIKE EXPLORABLE SHINING FORCE TOWNS OKAY), kind of wish it wasn't based loosely around WWII cause that does bring in some weird implications, but wtevz.

I have doubts about the gameplay though. Like I essentially did that last mission with four characters - Tank Johnson, Gay John DiMaggio, Estelle Bright, and some other scout. I had a bunch of other dudes sitting back and base not doing anything. And if you have the Edelweiss out, apparently everything just targets THAT, so I was able to take Lancerdude and just point blank some stuff because nobody was going after him. Also not really sure that potentials are going to matter much.

Apparently the hard mode skirmishes have better AI. Maybe someone'll figure out how to mod that into the main campaign. Or increase the AP decay you get for using the same guy multiple times in a row.
