@Kylde: What amp is this? I want one -- my laptop's sound output has always been questionable to me and I've heard the Kosses I'm using now amp well.

G Darius - Played the PSX version for a bit since I'm not going to bother ordering any games until the heat stops :S The Stage Beta boss is still a massive jerk, though I think the A route one might be easier, and then all the third stages seem to be space stages with goofy asteroid patterns.

Tail Concerto - Up to the Archeonis. Game improved immensely once I figured out how to change the controls in-game -- I'd accidentally mapped both shoulder buttons to "forward" which made it really hard to control since I couldn't backpedal and you sort of need to for the first boss.

Anyway, gonna see if I can work up the ambition to do some more Tales of Rebirth. Would LOVE to do some SF3, but it's just too damn warm in here for something as slow paced as that :S

There are some games that are so good that lackluster music takes nothing away from them.  Tales of Symphonia comes to mind here.  That game was one of that generation's finest, even with a lackluster, phoned-in soundtrack.  But I find those to be exceptions.  Music and sound design is important to me, especially nowadays where even indie games feature voice acting and such.  

I think my biggest issue with Symphonia's soundtrack was... the instrumentation/instrument samples? Maybe the compositions per se were good, maybe they weren't -- I couldn't tell because it was like listening to, for example, Valkyrie Profile's soundtrack piped through an emulator with the sound accuracy turned way down. It had this disjointed, MIDI-like quality to it.

Especially weird since Baten Kaitos' soundtrack did /not/ have that problem.

I do like BoF4's music but it's more ambient than melody oriented so I don't think it's something you'd really remembered.

Tail Concerto:

Did the first bit.

Okayyy so I hate to say that I haven't played either of these.
Everyone says they're both good...
but which should I start with?

(and yes, I'll eventually play both of them)

Shining Force 3 >:3

I think my initial aversion to SU was like, I got the impression that Steven would be super incompetent and it'd just be the dumb kid ruinin' e'erthang/cool adults save the day trope, but so far his character's ended up being competent in his own way and the Crystal Gems aren't as OP as the first couple eps make them seem???

Taito Legends 2 - Disc crashes early on in G Darius which was the entire reason i bought it >:CCCC Based on the tracking information I think USPS left it on a hot truck for like three days and it warped.

... Speaking of heat, playing all of /nothing/ for the next couple of days due to heat and all of my electronics running hotter than I want them to.

I'm feeling more lucid than I've in long damn time right now, so here's fiteen years of repressed emotional bloodletting!

I feel a lot of derealization and self-dislike over being circumcised; I project the dislike I feel towards myself onto pretty much everyone, which manifests as paranoia, feeling disproportionately antagonized over (frequently imaginary) slights, and going out of my way to invent reasons NOT to get close to anyone (or even making myself hate them); and the derealization means I spend too much time stuck in my own thoughts and being, frankly, delusional (or writing lengthy and incoherent forum posts).

Anyway, I've had too much caffeine, my knee's still fucked up from when I tripped on the steps two weeks ago, I really need to take the recycling out, and hip-hop sounds better to me on IEMs than headphones.

Future - Colossal/Rich $ex/Blood on the Money

Crazy texture on these.

the early aughts were a recent low point for cartoons, although the early aughts were kind of a low point for a lot of things.

Gee I sure hope my parents don't find out I listen to rap music.

-- edit --

So I loaded up some Future on my Sansa, started listening to it, and just started walking. No destination, just kind of went wherever. Ended up on the campus. It's hot out and I was thirsty, but none of the stores are open because Sunday and summer hours, so I found a vending machine in an empty parking garage and got water there.

Gonna eat some hemp flakes for dinner and watch Vinesauce B   )

I don't go to the gym.

tbh, the internet's a better source for sweaty, half-undressed dudes anyway.

Nanatsu Kaze - The biggest distraction while playing this is my desire to screenshot everything in it. Got a music box from adorable skeleton crow. So now I can, hopefully, calm down the rock baby and get to the wind stone I need to learn the orange wind so that I can use it to heal the flying moose. Still haven't gotten a stone from he slug guy this chapter. Maybe I just don't.

jisho.org's slight wonkiness is making things a /little/ harder than they need to be.

Well its just about August

What? No it's n--

fuck 8<

Okay SU picked way the hell up for me with Bubble Buddies/Serious Steven.

Good point about the UPS account thing. I should check that out, although I /rarely/ get stuff shipped via UPS.

-- edit --

Okay, after adjusting the ear pieces on the Koss KSC75s and doing a side-by-side comparison with the Audio-Technica M50s /which I actually spent decent money on/, I like the KSC75s a lot more. Only issue I've noticed with them really is that adjusting the clips is a process and they're not quite as robust to /overly loud/ mastering.
