I seriously wish FD had kept the original art :SSS SO1 was a very, very pretty game.

Anyway I tried playing Final Fantasy IV but:

1. I only have the PSX version.
2. I can't get it working consistently on my actual PS2.
4. The GBA version's the only other option for mostly not-!@#%ed-with hardtype.
5. Although apparently the stuff they took out of hardtype was sort of pointless anyway? But the translation's really jank?
6. i have no idea what the definitive version would be and this is an endless morass that i don't have the mental real-estate for it.

So, maybe Wonder Project J or Baten Kaitos ska enter rotationer, but until then back to Mother 3. Speaking of which!

Back to Tazmily from the island. Tazmily is now largely empty (though I should check if anyone's still in the east bit).

The NPC quote "I'm now a stray dog with a home. But I have no owner." seems to, uh, succinctly convey the game's theme. or a lot in general, really

- I like the GC controller but my hands are dumb and occasionally it'd hit some /nerve/ and make them go numb. (Update: The GC controller would hit a nerve in my hands. Not the other way around. My GC controller never complained of nerve impingement).

- PS2 controller is my controller of choice.

- I like the 360 controller too but the asymmetrtemmysa doesn't feel right too me.

- As much as I love the DC, its controller is not groovy, and neither was the MiDnIgHt SaLmIaK edition they used for the original XBox.

- I can't use a 3DSXL comfortably for any length of time for games that aren't like, menu RPG thingies.

Oh hey stumbled on this again:

http://www.vice.com/read/i-have-a-rare-visual-disorder-thats-like-being-on-psychedelics-all-the-time <- Comments about serotonin are new. Maybe this is related to the weird moodswings/psychotic episodes I get!!!! (Although I don't get why this is characterized as /rare/ -- like half the people I ask about it have it).

Anyway I was at a pastry place today and the... hostess told me she liked my hair.

I'm like, "Thanks," but mentally I'm like, okay but I haven't owned a comb in a decade, haven't had a proper haircut in about the same time period, it's completely !@#$ed up from anti-psoriasis shampoo stuff, and I just wandered out of a forest and it's probably full of like dead pixies or w/e, so you MIGHT be detached from reality.

u got
hundreds of stars of destiny across all the games
but u need

just one

(real answer: The Trinity Site (Sight?) from S3 mitigated that quite a bit for me since it forces you to use a bunch of guys, and then assuming you don't go with Geddoe for the last the best characters do go with aren't super limited -- like, with Hugo you'll want Fubar because they combo, but the rest is pretty open. The guys you got earlier are going to be more leveled, so maybe fill out your party with two of them, and then two newer guys that interest you but are underleveled, etc.

But I mean again it doesn't matter because none of them are Chiepoo).

... Things my wallet hates: Browsing blogs about neat Japan-only Saturn games.

You know that thing where some people put empty juice bottles/milk cartons/cereal boxes back in the fridge instead of throwing them out right away?

You put cereal boxes in your fridge?

He probably has a roach problem. I had some buddies that lived in queens and they basically had to keep most of their food in the fridge. I think the only stuff that wasn't was jarred or canned shit.

I haven't had any roaches since 2013 but goddamn german cockroaches are the absolute worst.

actually no nevermind you don't get any context.

Ah, yes. Classic translation hack humor. MARCHE FUCKS LIKE A TIGER!!!


Mother 3 -
Pulled the Tanetane Needle. That was, uh... the most [s]elabobate [I like this misspelling too much to fix it][/s] elaborate part of the game so far. Especially after how short Fire and Ice Mountains were. Claus dropping in to get the needle at the last second and Mixolydia watching over everyone while they were passed out was kind of... surprisingly gutpunchy.

... So were the barrier guys striking a final pose though.

I got an order of fried broccolini for lunch but they were overzealous with the batter so it was mostly just these gross-ass vodka batter globs with something vaguely Brassica-group floating quietly thereins.

Also what game is this? Bhutan Krastos?


Oh, Earth day haps.

- Use public transportation.
- Abstained from meat.
- Turned off any unused lightsources so that I only have a single lightbulb lighting my apartment at any given time.
- Used sustainable, organic dish soap.
- The soap tastes really good.
- Did my part in fighting overpopulation by continuing to never going to get anyone pregnant ever because eating soap and living in a goddamn single-lightbulb cave are a one-way ticket to never having a girlfriend.
- I think the soap actually killed the aftertaste from the battered regret I had for lunch. yey!!!!!

And then the flipside of that is people what be all

"Oh noooooo, now that this thing finally came out, it's violating all of the headcanons I came up with for no good reason based on pre-release stuff! WHY MUST THESE WRITERS BETRAY ME SO."

Mother 3 - Pooled the Snowcap noodle.

I want another game in rotation so that I can play M3 on alternate days. I mean there's Eternal Blue, but the recent heat + my unwillingness to call maintenance out here to fix the air conditioner is making me too lazy to want to dictionary stuff.

Oh wrt that though, I like the part where Lucia's looking at a bird and is all WHAT A BIG DOG and Ruby's just like "._____________."*

I want something as colorful as CC. Maybe I'll dig through the massive cluster of PS2 games that I have beneath the horse and christmas ornament shelf and see if there's anything that fits the bill.

-- edit --

oh god so I checked the LP of Eternal Blue I've been crossreferencing and they changed the line so Lucia doesn't call the bird a dog anymore. It's entirely possible I misread it or that the LPs wrong but afaict, original is:

<Lucia> Oh my! What a big dog!
<Ruby> Lu... Lucia. That's a bird. Bird.

WD's version:
<Lucia> I don't think I've ever seen anything like this before. What is it?
<Ruby> Uh, hello Lucia? It's a bird. Just a dumb old bird. Sheesh!

Why would they change that :<

-- edit --

I recognize that I am way too amused by people calling things dogs when they aren't dogs, especially the less doglike they are.

Like in Eva if Shinji ran into the room with the Rei clones in the tank, and they all looked up and him and he looked back and was just like

I would still be laughing.

Well, does anyone else ever check the mail and just put it back in the mailbox if there's nothing interesting in there?

That reminds me, !

-- edit --

So Ohio's going to hell but instead of referring to any actual news, here's this headline:

"Ohio National Guardsman sentenced in funeral honors theft"

there's at LEAST four ways to interpret this. And I mean the way "theft" can be read as both thievery in general AND a specific incident of theft? simply de-vine

It was less leaving communities because they made me feel bad and more just... feeling alienated to the point where I didn't even care about interacting with them anymore, and just not coming back? And I do this a lot and on very short notice? Like I'm pretty aware that there were some close friends that I had in 2012 that I just stopped talking to suddenly and completely and now I barely remember them or why I was friends with them in the first place? Or why I stopped talking to them?
