I'm still not sure I can even taste meat right :S I dooooooon't remember turkey having much flavor. Maybe there's a /genetic defect/ where you just can't pick up on certain flavor components in meat.


You know that save system in Harmony of Dissonance, where you could save anywhere, but you'd start back at the last save point you encountered on the map?

I feel like there was some... traditional RPG or action RPG that did that but I caaaaan't remember which. FFX? LoHTiTs? Baten Kaitos? Help :<

idk how I forgot about this!


They're in season right now. Go eat some. Just make sure they're ripe -- reddish orange, really soft to mushy, and sort of translucent. Underripe persimmons are gross. Also they can take like two or three weeks to ripen from the time the stores get them.

Mom was showing me the facebook page of one of my friends from highschool on her phone.

I felt really creepy and voyeuristic looking at it though.

Facebook is a totally normal method of communication and human interaction in 2015 and it makes me feel genuinely uncomfortable and like I'm prying too much into someone else's life.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0dTG1_x-K8 NSFW for language but too relevant to pass up.

But enough of that! Apropos to me not understanding modern society at all anymoooooooooore...


I think Lone Star would be a pretty good class name.

To hell with turkey.  I don't even like turkey.

I like how I keep seeing news tickers around town and I can't tell if they're about cooking birds or recent tensions in the Middle East.

I don't even care since looking at DoA5 Last Round tells me DoAX3 is going to be nothing more than a platform to sell $4000 worth of DLC

I got the 360 version of the original release of DoA5 a few years back. That's $25 I'll never see again.

it just doesn't feel quite as good as FFV's system

It's not. Not by a long shot. You don't really get any skills to play with like you do in 5, and from what I remember a lot of the classes just amount to different flavors of stat boosts. It's like the DQ3 class system but with a lot more redundancy

Umihara Kawase Shun - Still prefer Sayonara just for the fact that I can save but also for no random fish spawning. Still need some proper explanation of how physics work. Also the PC version, at least, of Sayonara feels a lot smoother -- there's this slight difference in line physics I thiiink, where in Sayonara if you're hanging off of something and you shorten the line, it'll pull you around corners, whereas in Shun you just get stuck on the platform and I find that /really/ jarring.

Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying Shun, I just like Sayonara more.

Tail Concerto - Man I don't want rag on this because I know in some circles it's considered a forgotten classic and I'm trying to not be such a /negative Nelhaym/ but between the generic characters and storytelling, lack of any sort of exploration, barely-there level design, hitsponge bosses, dysfunctional camera, dysfunctional controls, and the soundtrack that was ostensibly composed by a Percocet overdose with a MIDI keyboard it found somewhere, the going rate for this game on eBay has done little to dissuade me from my theory that furries will buy anything.

-- edit --

Sayonara Umihara Kawase - Did Level 25, 50, and 27; got backpacks on 50 and 27. I think my big thing with being able to basically start from any level in this game is that it lets you experiment with how you approach the levels -- not having limited lives means you can be less cautious and I can see why that might be a bad thing for some people, but that goes counter to how I approach figuring out levels. Aaaand by that same token I think that freed up the designers to get a bit more creative with the level design, too?

STHA - Cleared the second ice place and picked up two more fairies. Beat the second Tail Viper. Have some mithril but I got some indication that I shouldn't make items till I get Doyle. Need to see if I can sleep the air polyps.

LibreOffice Base - gif of that guy from indiana jones and his face is melting

-- edit --

I think LibreOffice just crashed this game is terrible

-- edit --

Oh god now my laptop is overheating I swear to god LibreOffice is the least optimized game.

Umihara Kawase Shun hit Steam recently although I seem to be stuck in First Edition mode. Also I wish you could save in this bargle.

Also Strania came out to although I don't seem to be able to run it at a decent framerate so I might get a refund on that and get the XBLA version.

Tail Concerto - Did the Ferzen stuff. Miiiight try the next area before passing judgement, idk. Judgment. Judgment is the proper American English spelling I guess. I never realized this prior to last night.

LD: PotB - Need to set up a LibreOffice database so I can figure out what text has actually be translated.

Tail Concerto - Re-did the Airleaf bit. I'll hold off on giving up on this until I do Ferzen, but... I don't know, I really worry that I'm convincing myself that I'm enjoying things when I'm NOT actually enjoying them, so when I run into a game I expect to enjoy and I have the completely opposite response, I guess, at least, it tells me that I'm not lying to myself nearly as much as I worry I am :S

It's the controls and the camera, when I get down to it -- I'm used to jankiness in old third person things because old third person things is most of what I play, but I've rarely felt such a complete disconnect between what I'm doing, at the controller, and what happens on screen.

Beyond that, screwed around with Psyvariar Revision a bit. Genuinely enjoy how this looks -- it's ugly, but in a really evocative sort of way. Also I feel like I get hit more when I use the spin button instead of manually doing it :S

What if you made cupcake frosting by taking other cupcakes, pulverizing them, and then suspending the resultant cupcake dust in... I don't know, some fluid that would have enough body to be put on top of a cupcake without just oozing immediately off?

But then instead you use this to like, ice a, uh... mound of baked fondant. So it's like a literally deconstructed and inverted cupcake?

I only really go for dark chocolate now? The thing with chocolate baked goods for me is that they're like always way to sugary. You can't even really taste the chocolate, they just taste like... cheap gross hot fudge syrup. So if I get a brownie, what I'd REALLY want is something with that kind of bitter/coffee-ish/fruity/earthy/maybe slightly durianish taste that dark chocolate has but inevitably it's just like doing shots of straight, distilled Hershey's syrup.

Only somehow faker. So maybe not straight Hershey's syrup, but Hershey's cut with that really gross food dye that's been in yr. grandma's pantry since the 80s.

This is also the real reason why I never eat the cake during office birthday parties. It's cheap grocery store stuff. Usually gross chocolate with gross vanilla icing.

Huge reason why I prefer vegan baked goods around here is the taste. Whatever dairy/egg free substitutes they use, especially instead of butter, really imparts this /savory/ quality that stops stuff from getting all cloying and gross. I think it's just like, salted coconut oil or something. Also blending tofu into the batter does some arcane magic on it. That stuff seems to make it ferociously moist.

Have fun at Comiket! Make sure you buy some of the everything that will never get released outside of Comiket, ever!

Also more apropos to earlier posts, why DO people get nostalgic for childhood? Childhood's awful -- you have no autonomy and you're basically a human pet.

I've said it before but proper Sega-backed SegaCD, Saturn, and DC emulation would be great if they like, actually did it well. Existing emulation for those system is notably finicky and existing hardware for those systems is uh


Although the Saturn emulation in the PC version of Nights has weird issues with missing triangles so.

Beyond that I think there's plenty of Saturn games that would be viable if they showed up on Steam. Like I was saying in the game journal thread, STHA feels a lot more modern to me, low resolution aside, than most of the actual modern dungeon crawlers I've played, the Panzer Dragoon games are pretty timeless, at least in part because they used the limitations of the hardware to have really distinctive art, SF3 and Dragonforce feel a lot more polished/consistent/better designed than, uh, a lot of strategy RPGs to me, really

Man now I'm imagining a joint venture between Sega and Degica that ends with Garegga getting a Steam release.

Honestly kind of surprised Radiant Silvergun never hit Steam. RSG had a 360 version so bringing that over wouldn't be too bad.
