fwiw, I enjoyed the original FFCC in single player, although the gave you a moogle and fiddled with the mechanics a bit to make it actually work, unlike Phantasy Star Online which was... basically impossible to reasonably solo in.

I was under the impression the later games gave you proper AI companions but the AI there was mixed, whereas the moogle was just a little buddybot that did what you told it.

Man I get it if they intentionally dubbed it in British English to make it all sound... I don't know, Britishy for the hell of it like they did with the Dragon Quest games as of late, but complaining about everyone having a British accent in a dub released primarily for UK distribution is like complaining about how everyone's speaking in Japanese in a Japanese dub.

Anyway, Okami - About to fight another dog. Gonna go to a Dojo and get the BEAD SKILLS first though.

@Jawsh:

With regards to Xenoblade,

Code:
Did you get to the part where Fiora dies yet?

Also you do realize the game got a UK release first so it was dubbed by British actors and that's how British people actually talk, right?

I don't think I've ever been out near Capital University. That's like right on the edge of Bexley and Whitehall, and I went to Whitehall like once and I am /never doing that again/.

I'm kind of tired of Columbus as a whole though. I've lived here for four years no and I've never felt like I belonged to any sort of community or been anything more than a perpetual visitor living amongst people that give more of a shit than I'm able to.

probably moreso with friends

Not really.

The problem with playing SoM with friends is that nine times out of ten, you're growing up in a crappy suburban neighborhood and your friends are just whoever's around that's your age, and then they end up like robbing your parents.

:\

I don't think that's entirely the case -- if you attack an enemy that's in hitstun, there's lag between you hitting it an the damage being calculated/applied/displayed. I think specifically what's happening is that the damage is there but doesn't apply till the enemy goes back out of hitstun, and sometimes maybe it glitches out and drops attacks or applies damage to the wrong attack (like SD3 did).

But its hard to tell what's going on with that because the NPCs just dogpile the enemy anyway.

Did you seriously just copypaste an entire fucking Wikipedia article.

 Holy shit X-Man Wolverine has UofM Wolverines colors

3DS XL grip came. I still can't play action games on the system for any length of time without hurting my hand :T The extra bulk makes it easier to grip the thumpad and press more than two buttons at the same time, but the general placement of the face buttons just makes them deeply uncomfortable for me, and the d-pad's pretty awful either way.'

I don't know, I really wish I'd gotten a regular sized 3DS now. The big screens are pretty but the thing's unusable for me.

Also the case for the Jungle Brothers CD I ordered with the grip is completely fucked.

Like twenty minutes out my thumb is still burning :T

Yeah but your hairdresser probably is.

And they're the one with the scissors and the cleaning supplies.

@ Monsoon: You're basically in the worst part of the game right now AFAIK.

@ glassjawsh: I make a point of running all my PSX games through Alcohol 52% disc integrity stuff, since that usually turns up any disc problems. All of my EB discs were giving a read error around the same sectors, so I'm hoping it's just a case of some weird file system making those blocks unreadable on my laptops disc drive, and not a case of the discs actually being damaged :T

@ klyd: fwiw, the annoying slow text speed is only a problem in the cutscenes in Okami -- normal NPC chatter can be sped up by pressing a button and skipped altogether by hitting start. Also the cutscenes aren't really that long -- it's not like in Suikoden 3 or 5.

Anyway I played Okami for like an hour last night and fought a doggy and the fight went on too long because I forgot to get Amy drunk beforehand. I'm also pretty sure that I've neglected to pick up some special attacks or weapons r something. This is what happens when you don't play a game for like five years.

Just once I'd like to make it through a week without living in the same building as someone furious at nothing worth being furious over.

"You catch more flies with honey than vinegar" is not an expression my family has ever heard.

I am thankful every day for finally leaving my parent's house, I visit on the weekends and that's it ever since I went to university, never again am I going to live there.. My father is the very definition of getting furious over the most inconsequential details of all fucking time all the time.

If my parents are together in a car and my dad's driving, if my mom points out an open space, my dad'll get really pissed and pretty much stop talking for a few hours.

Animal Crossing - Managed to get fruit from Isabelle. Yeeey. Let's not screw this up. I guess I can cut down some of my existing orange trees and put pears there. SOUNDS like NL is more lenient about where trees can go?
