Saw one of these today:



The yellow blobby part on these are between the size of a dime and a quarter.


Seriously though, local weather right now is goddamn spiders everywhere. Like you know how when baby spiders hatch they send up little whippy bits of webbing and /fly around/ on that? THIS IS HAPPENING. I HAVE SPIDERS LANDING ON ME CONSTANTLY.

Also when i was walking back from my bus stop, there was another hugeass spider just HANGING DOWN IN FRONT OF ME from a telephone wire, because why the hell not?

New Leaf - Bill just asked me if I had too much yerba mate.

It's funny because guayusa is pretty goddamn close and I HAVE had too much of /that/.

Beyond that I need to rearrange plants and stuff. Also some bear I forgot about it moving.

Anyway I finished /secret project/ so I can go back to gaming in the evenings again. Okami and Suikoden 3, woohoo!

--- edit ---

Recca - Got through stage one without dying, until i got to the boss at which point I died /once/. The Kid Icarus stand is actually helping a lot with the cramping issues I was having.

Dinner tonight was Raisin Bran, yogurt, and a bottle of guayusa. Was gonna eat hummus but I think it's gone off. Hummus isn't supposed to be fizzy, is it?

Also bought Aquanaut's Holiday 2 and Memories of Summer 1996 because they were cheap -- basically the cost of getting AH2 by itself. I'm still not sure if 1996 is actually a different game from what we got in the US. I didn't really like AH2 as much as 1 for whatever reason but I still like it.

I should play Tail of the Sun. I miss when Artdink just did really bizarre things instead of HRR DRR OVERPRICED A-TRAIN DLC.

FFVI's dungeons had the same proclivity towards being mazey and switch-pushy that a lot of other 16-bit RPGs had :T

FFVI was basically glitchy as all hell and the dungeon designs weren't very good. Also the ratio of Good Characters to Total Characters was low and at least one would literally destroy your save if you used her. Also you tend to happen upon really simple things you can keep spamming that basically win every battle.

I love the style and atmosphere and storytelling, I just find it miserable to actually /play/ it.

And, to me at least, that idea is 1000 times more terrifying than Sephiroth wanting to destroy the planet because his mommy doesn't love him/really exist.

Prior to Square's endless retconning, the thing with Sephiroth is that he's a byproduct of Shinra's sketchy energy business. It's not so much that Sephiroth wants to destroy the world so much as it is the planet wants to kill humanity/commit suicide and Sephiroth's just the thing through which this is being did.

I mean I'm pretty sure in the original FFVII Sephiroth's this insane radioactive zombie and then people got really turned on by this for some reason so Square was like FUCK IT WE NEED MORE ATTRACTIVE RADIOACTIVE ZOMBIES.

I think I hit Colony 6... around 15? 20? hours although I wasn't doing sidequests in Guar Plains so much as I was just aimlessly herumgefickte.

New Leaf - Finally caught some villagers talking to eachother. Also apparently stole a penguin from the guy I got fruit from. SURE HOPE MY IMAGINARY ZEBRA GIRLFRIEND DOESN'T MOVE.

NPC behavior isn't hugely more varied compared to the GC version but it's varied enough that it pretty much DOES address my issue where sometimes the GC version was nothing but hauling items around to return them.

Still I do wish it had balls and the story text from Wild World because /besides that/ it's everything I wanted out of the series to be.

Also I'm going to assume that glassjawsh spent 18 hours without getting to Colony 9 unless he says otherwise.

Also, and doubly apropos to nothing, I think the reason I like the Saints Row games that much is because they capture the adventurous IDGAFishness of the PS2 era.

Also HONKAPOTAMUS is my new favorite thing ever. The only thing /better/ than that is when Ponychan used to censor "sex" to "glazed donuts" no matter what the context was, so homosexuals would become "homoglazed donutals."

There are actually a lot of Square games that I like, I'm just, in general, /not/ fond of their SNES output. Final Fantasy 5 is probably my favorite of the bunch, though I do like SoM and CT (although again I think CT's kind of overrated a lot). But that's about the extent of it. Although if we're expanding Square to Square Enix... I didn't really like DQ5 or 6 in their original incarnations either.

It's more PSX-era Square I'm... still sort of obsessed with.

I think the only question, in light of Dincrest's recent decisions, is who's gonna be RPGFan's Token Black Guitartist NOW?
27  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: A Mana series retrospective. on: October 21, 2014, 09:39:50 PM
No, I'm the guy that really doesn't like Squaresoft as a whole, although I have to admit that part of that's probably just an adverse reaction I have to their rabid fanbase and... what I think is a completely undeserved reputation as having been one of the greatest RPG companies ever.

In my eyes, Square made a bunch of really generic RPGs, they just made them a lot /pettier/ than anyone else was doing for a long time.

Jawsh seriously which area are you in in XBC?

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.
