Skills/knowledge alone don't make the man.

BEING OVER THE AGE OF 18+ AND HAVING A WIENER AND/OR IDENTIFYING AS MALE MAKES YOU A MAN.

... Also does anyone else wish the new Jurassic Park movie WASN'T an action movie about dinosaurs eatin' dudes and was instead a family-friendly fake Discovery Channel-esque documentary about the day-to-day happenings at a dinosaur park :T

... Also goddammit Krogers is doing a two-for-one on Bolthouses so I had an empty bottle from yesterday on my desk and one I drank today, and I saw here was a little juice left in the one from today and I went to drink it but it turns out it was the one from yesterday augahguahguhag barfbarfbarf

Childhood challenge distortion is certainly something I've been aware of but never really acknowledged.
It's not just about reflexes or something either, it's mainly having to put up with the amount of trial and error involved.

Oh I definitely had WAY more patience for level grinding when I was younger. I used to really like BoF2, Phantasy Star 2/3, Daggerfall, Albion, etc., and was prone to grinding through games when it wasn't required because I didn't get the mechanics (See Earthbound, above.

One of the most extreme examples I can think of isn't entirely fair since it involves and emulator, but I was playing a translated ROM of Final Fantasy V (this was before there was any official English version) and there was a section where you're exploring a ship that had water in it I believe was supposed to cover like half your character sprite.  But my emulator didn't handle this part correctly and the water just covered the whole screen so you couldn't see a thing.

Oh god I had a similar issue with SD3* as Kevin, and I wasn't aware that ZSNES was glitching out and I just though the game was really goddamn stupid.

... I also thought the NES version of FF3 ended at the initial credits roll.

@ Klyde: Did you ever play the original DOS X-Com? It has nice sprite work, although I'm under the impression that it doesn't play TOO differently from the new one so you'd probably not want to double-up.

* Just since I know the internet police are watching, I own legits fuh-realsies copies of SD3 and all that other weird import stuff I've been playing lately and I will gladly show pictures of my import collection because I am /a really huge dork I mean I can't even believe this where did my life go wrong/.

... I wish I owned legit copies of Chu-Teng and LSD, but I mean there are all of four copies of the former in existence, so.

There were a bunch of games I got up early for so I could play them before school. Ocarina of Time....


One of my "playing hooky" memories was when I skipped school to play Ocarina of Time in our cozy renovated basement with the morning sunlight pouring in and with 'not giving a damn' on the schedule that day.

... That was a good day

I know I've mentioned this but one time in college I spent all evening playing OoT instead of studying for a computer graphics exam, and ended up failing the exam.

This ended up being a great decision cause it inspired me to withdraw from the class, which gave me the /mental real estate/ to pull off an A in the OTHER class the professor was teaching. Had I stayed in the CGI class I probably would've gotten a C in it, done worse in the other class, and possibly would not have gotten magna cum laude.

Reiterating previous sentiments about not really having any sex drive/romance drive, so kids the traditional way isn't really a thing on the table anyway and even then I find prolonged contact with other people really draining.

... Anyone else ever feel like an adult teenager?

Also I was reading wikipedia article on Yooper dialect and saw:

"Towards" is favored over "toward". The former is usually favored in British English while the latter is favored in American English.

^- was not aware that "toward" was even a word.

Nanatsu Kaze - Up to chapter five. Got some whip? things from Wind Lion that let me summon winds properly now. Think I need to so something with the sign cobras.

(Also I know the text is really simple in this but it's still rewarding when I hit sentences that I /get/ without having to look anything up :3)

Romancing SaGa 2 - HRP DRP NOBODY SELLS AC ADAPTERS FOR SNES ANYMORE.

Earthbound seems hard when you're young cause yr not aware that status attacks and some of Jeff's weird implements are really good for shutting down bosses. Also I think it's like the only SNES game where status attacks ARE really useful on bosses so most games of the era woulda had you programmed to assume that trying to paralyze moles would never work.

I probably wouldn't have kids in the first place and just end up adopting a bunch of idk border collies or something. Although even then I'm not sure I'd have the /mental clarity/ to take care of dogs.

... I need to go get an SNES AC adaptor so I can see if that copy of Romancing SaGa 2 I imported from Kentucky works.

I felt like Wind Waker had weird difficulty spikes? Like that stealth bit at the start of the game seemed WAY harder than anything that followed for awhile.

Angry badgers talking about playing American Rules Quidditch while getting drunk isn't really weird by my standards.

@jawsh: OH MAN REMEMBER WHEN PEOPLE HAD LANDLINES AND LIKE 90% OF THE SALES CALLS YOU GOT WEREN'T ROBOTS. Today that'd be all

<Calvin> * goes into bathroom, sits down on floor, and smokes while sobbing quietly *

Also wrt Jurassic Park trailer, that bit where everyone's filming the goddamn Liopleurodon with their cellphones is pissing me off even more than the prospect of featherless raptors just because it has cellphones in it.

My issues with Lunar's plot were related to WD's fuckery, which was present in both versions :TTTTTTTTT

the one that starts with her dripping period blood.   https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3vvw42jvxUs

I like the part where it sounds like she shouts "ASS ROLEPLAY" right before that 8V

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.
