Oh my gooooood.....

Xenoblade: High Entia CHILDREN are 40 years old... even with an expanded lifespan, I can't think of taking care of an infant for over 10 years let alone what follows with childhood...

It could be a Noppon, where they live for a long time and are children for /all of it/.

Terrifying, murderous children.

Shadow Tower - Went back and repaired stuff. Going back to the start of the tower via teleport then walking back to the end of the earth region takes about five? ten? minutes if you're just traveling without fighting.

Also the Fiery Helm acts like a torch which is nice.

GTA:SA/GTA3 - Did one mission a piece in these. idk why I enjoy these more than GTAV -- it's not just that GTAV's story made me feel gross, idk it just lack a certain /pick up and play/ quality. The huge initial load time doesn't help.

I need to get around to playing G-Police and LAPD Future Cops sometime. G-Police has a very similar aesthetic to GTA3. Also need to get back to Chibi-robo this weekend.

My favorite part of FFVI was when it glitched out and blitzes quit working.

It's a great game, but I think I'm getting too addicted to it.

Oh god I hate that feeling. I'm maybe a little too unfocused to develop a proper addiction to things now, but in college or even up through like 2012, I'd get in that mindset and... blurgh.

@Mickey: I felt like the quarry was the worst part of the game. It's fine but it's not indicative of some of the highpoints that game hits.

Shadow Tower - I think I might need to take a break from this because it's contributing to my dreams being weird -- imagine you're dreaming with wonky King's Fieldian movement/rotation/stamina mechanics. Yeeeah -- anyway.

Did some stuff in the fire dungeon near the boss, and had to burn through a lot of my Caustic Ring and use an HP potion there, which wasn't bad, but then went back to the earth dungeon and found a quasi-secret area and... ended up losing about 800-1000 HP there buuuut I found a bunch of potions and two 14 soul point vials. Feels like a good trade off. I have 1600 HP left so definitely going back to the start so I can repair it.

The whole HP-as-currency thing is kind of brilliant. Every action you do has a cost, either in terms of equipment durability or HP, so you have to make sure the tradeoff is worth it for whatever you do. And it like, recontextualizes what you do -- okay, I have 3000 HP, so do I go back and spend that on repairing equipment, or do I use that to clear out another part of the dungeon?

And then since HP potions are always full heal, you never want to heal too soon because like, healing back to 3400 HP when you're at 1600 HP means you effectively wasted HP you could spend on something else, be that dealing with more enemies or using it to repair equipment. So proper risk-reward.

I was watching some GTAV videos about the new heist DLC, was cognizant of how "heist" would say if I said it, but also aware that I've PROBABLY never said the worst "heist" out loud.

Extrapolated some, and now I'm wondering how many words I encounter frequently via non-verbal communication but have never or very rarely used verbally.

Kind of weirded out by this. It's like my head's full of words that aren't mine.

MY DREAMS KEEP GETTING STUPIDER ARGH. They're also making me wake up super tired.

Also I think that scene was like, more to call Shulk out for being sort of racist? Like it's not so much him having a dumb JRPG protagonist, it's this double standard he's had the whole came coming to head????????????

For clarification, we've probably got another two or three weeks of spider hell and then it's /cranefly/ hell.

It's always Halyomorpha hell here.

To be fair, I think everyone else was like SHULK YOU DINGUS over that.

The Wikipedia article on New Coke is /deeply/ depressing.

Yep. Xenogears/saga/blade guy directed this one too.

I thought CC was mostly Kato, with some other XG guys but not Takahashi. Can I get some citation on this :S

(and then Kato's thing in CT was Zeal, which is why CC's... arguably a sequel to /that plot arc specifically/, and then Baten Kaitos was also Zeal).

... Speaking of Kato can someone go operation rainfall Legend of Legacy.

UFO - Found an alcoholic alien.

Shadow Tower - Beat he boss of the Earth World. Doing fine on healing potions, but I'm out of anti-paralytics and I burned through a lot of MP on that fight. Also my armor is not in good condition. FIRE WORLD IS NEXT WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG

-- edit --

GTA:SA - Finished driving school, took some pictures.

ST - Went back and repaired my stuff (except the Bastard Sword, because that was expensive to repair and I didn't want to burn through too many healing potions), traded some old equipment that I did NOT need for healing potions, uh... wasted like four durability on a giant getting back to the save point at the end of the Earth World so ffff.

LD:PotB - Inserted more text in this.

NKnSM - De-constrained the flying tree. I got stuck on how to do this but the solution ended up being the really, really obvious one I overlooked. Now it's covered in Star Crickets so I guess I need to catch some Flutterbooks to scare them off with.

-- edit 2 --

ST - Progress in Fire Realm. Deactivated the traps in the second part of the dungeon. Really need to repair my stuff at this point. I'm at about 3000 HP so I have stuff to burn. Think I'm at like 21 or 22 HP potions, lots of weapons. Mostly my frost ring and some armor that needs fixed. I think I'm alright on resources. Very lost, though. Some more light bottles would be nice, too.

Note to self: I can hear a monster in that stair part, and if I go back towards where I deactivated the traps (left, then up, from that room with the floor traps I think) there's... another branch off of that where I can find another one of those rolly monsters

Wait what?

@ Dincrest: I would definitely recommend beating the boss the right way for reasons   !!
