Yazuks 2: Just screwed around doing sidequests a bit. The most story advancement I advoce was getting bandages. Which opened more sidquests.

This reminds me of a lot of The Last Story a lot.

Euro Truck 2 - I was mostly playing this for like 30 minutes because it makes my laptop overheat and I had a blob of durian I was trying to defrost via laptop exhaust port ANYWAY I'm just going to do small jobs around the UK till I get some cash, or that was the plan but the UK has like roundabouts and road signs I don't understand.

Yazkus 2 - Up to chapter 4. There's apparently some Maken X-y arcade game in this. Anyway, finding locker keys n stuff. Good times.

Endonesia - No idea what to do for the gods in the jungle where I started, so I went back down to the uh, cotton candy area and found a bed. After waking up there was this white tubey thing looking at me, but it ran off. Went down to the beach and found a dude. He's speaking in some slang I don't understand but it looks like it involves reversing words??? He apparently likes the character's loincloth. Anyway I think he said that he needed "fun" to capture that /Hawaii Feeling/ so I'mma go cuddle some of the space monkeys to recharge fun and blast him with it. Or I think I'm near a village so maybe I should go there and see if there is an item I can give him, like pants.

Also I got the magic lamp to give me a sonnet by like sitting down next to the place where the puppet guy/water mole were hanging out but I have no idea how that happened, and it was on a thing where I didn't save.

Also want to try blasting Hide and Seek guy with fun again and turning him down if he asks to play, although I think that'll just make me lonely.

Mr. Burns is driving Smithers somewhere, but had a sudden case of the deads from being so old and crashes into a church bus carrying Ned Flanders and Rev. Lovejoy. Dr. Hibbert shows up to try and rescue people and Kent Brockman shows up to do the news, but then the bus explodes killing /everyone/.

Stan Andrews - Did a woozie moo mission. Photographed a ball. Park.

Yakuza 2 - Got up to chapter 3, then I wandered around stealing locker keys. Need to do more claw game stuff.

(but seriously, I love RPGFan features, I can't wait for this one and you should do these more of all fun types like towns n bosses n superbosses n tracks n shit).

Next feature!
NPCs that should have been PCs.

In the future, NPCs will be tablets instead.

:(

T-Swift isn't my type, but I'd still pee in her butt.

Annubis, the swelling is not that dramatic, fortunately. Besides, I figure that's something even my GP would have noticed.

I'd say cool it with the 3 hours of daily exercise? That seems a bit excessive to me. But then I'm a lazy slob so take my athletic advice with a grain of salt.

It's nothing intense, mostly 20km/h cycling with some 25km/h here and there. And it's not all at once either. It's mostly divided into 30-60 minute chunks (unless there's some anime to binge watch, hurray for my exercise bike!).

Besides, isn't this what's supposed to be a normal amount of moving around?

Chair height, make sure it's just right so that your feet are resting on the floor but not pushing against it. Also make sure that there's no pressure applied to your joints which would bend them in a way they aren't supposed to (like resting your foot on its edge that will apply minimal sideways pressure to your knee). Lastly, get up and have a little walk when you feel your legs getting stiff, maybe do a little stretching to get the blood circulating.

Yep, I got that all right. Well, actually, I haven't tried the stretching yet. I'll try that, thanks :)


Also make sure you are staying hydrated. Not just water, but electrolytes and stuff. I know when I get dehydrated my fingers swell up to look like sausages. Delicious delicious sausages.

Oh wait huh I've had finger swelling in the heat for years and I never figured it was dehydration. Holly dang.

But if Taylor Swift actually dated decent people, she wouldn't have much of a career, would she?  She wouldn't be a gossip darling nor would she have potential songwriting fuel.  She's at that point where she's becoming famous for being famous than being famous for her talent/skill.  

In all seriousness, that's why artists hit that downward spiral once they're famous.  Like if you look at any rock band's first album, it's always the best because it's raw, it's hungry, it's grimy, it's from a genuine place of struggle.  Then the band makes it, they're on top of the world, getting gear endorsements, partying at the Playboy mansion, etc.  Then comes time to make the next album and since they spent most of their time living the high life, they feel like they gotta get back to that place where they started so they start making their lives all fucked up with lots of drugs, drinking, running themselves broke, controversial antics, and all that shit, so they can suffer and struggle again for their art and career.  It's stupid, yes, but sensible decisions do not make the most interesting stories, do they?  

Bands that don't hit their stride/get noticed till their second album at least seem to have more stable careers, too.

Nanatsu Kaze - I got stuck on like two things because I forgot how to follow basic directions. WHOOPSY. Anyway, got lost in a cave with a /crab mole/ and now Wind Lion's about to teach me stuff.

Yakuza 2 - Seems fun but I never played the first so the hour and a half I spent playing this consisted largely of /reminiscing about the first game/ to get the backstory. That aside, feels rather 3D River City Ransomish with a bit of Shenmue. Also won the claw game for a dude.

... this game gave me the urge to play the second Kuzunoha game again.

OKAY NO PARTICULAR AWRDAWR.
ALSO THESE ARE MAYBE LESS /FAVORITES/ AND MORE /GAMES WHAT MADE MY SOUL SING/

Ultima 7
Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne
Earthbound
Final Fantasy Legends 2
Chrono Cross
Suikoden 3
Final Fantasy IX
Tie between Euro Truck Simulator 2 and San Andreas for open world drivey RPGs
Phantasy Star
Two-way tie between Terranigma and Oath in Felghana for action RPGs.

alternative answer:

"Zelda"

(Honorable mention would probably include Tales of Symphonia on the grounds that I adored it when it was new but I'm not sure I'd still like it, and Legend of Mana on the grounds that I love the hell out of it but it's deffo too broken for me to put on a tops list).

I feel like the IT industry as a whole is a soul-gutting wasteland is how I feel about this :T What you're talking about isn't JUST an issue with game development, it's like all tech stuff as a whole right now.

I feel like the entire goal of the industry right now isn't to /make things that work/ but instead to dump overwrought tar-babies on clients because vendor lock is lucrative, even if nobody's happy and nothing was actually accomplished.

That and while cellphones are getting more powerful by the second, their battery clearly isn't following the trend.

Additionally, cellphones aren't just gaming machines and those who want to get one to game on also has to deal with the rest of the baggage that comes with owning a cellphone (paying to keep your phone connected and active, paying for the various features, on top of having to pay for the games themselves (which often times require additional payments just to play).

And between that and the constant upgrades (especially if you go anywhere near an iPhone/Pad/whatever), the price tag adds up quick.

So basically cellphones are horrible for gaming on and they're only the future of games because they're ubiquitous and you can put a bunch of low-effort shovelware on there and still have it sell when it wouldn't on other platforms.
