I think Riddel's supposed to tell you to go to the El Nido triangle if you go and talk to her after Terra Tower opens up, though idk if that's contingent on having done the Dario or Marbule sidequests or whatever. There's other in-game stuff directing you to get Starky, it's just earlier than you really need him -- around the time you're doing the dragon quests iirc. Also I don't remember why but I DID get the impression that there was a translation issue there making things more confusing than they were supposed to be.

Though yeah that's like the one part of the game that annoyed me (besides hrr drr late Square PSX game hrr drr two megs of ram hrr drr getting like 10 frames per second here), although that's more because Starky's kind of a dingus and you don't really get his backstory until you get one of the New Game+ endings for some reason.

I don't think there's anything else particularly wonky after that -- maybe the correct way to beat the last boss, but that's supposed to be taken as more of a Myst-styled observational puzzle.

It's not a romhack, he just found some useless assembly code embedded in it?

And while I like Macha, she was overshadowed by "cooler" choices.



Go to Sky Dragon island. idk which one.

this is apparently relevant but I don't know why.

Oh I just namedropped a rather famous dude what's got lady private parts cause I couldn't figure out what ****boy meant in context.

I didn't want people accidentally Googling his name cause things would be found.

Also VC1 was based on WW2 so I mean CONTEXTUALLY...

Also iirc ToS racism was less /racism per se/ and more some external bad dudes creating racism to play the elves and humans off eachother.

Currently playing MIGRAINE. I'm at the part where FUCK THIS WEATHER where MY SINUSES is awful.

Went to Dublin for a townhall meeting about something today, and also couldn't really eat lunch as a result.

Shadow Tower - Made progress in Stone Cavern. Used a lamp I'd rather not have used, but meh. Also my axe and crushing mace are not in good shape, which is bad because I don't really have any other crushing weapons which are what I /need/ right now.

UFO - Spent like an hour trying to figure out the font in this. The katakana for "me" and "o" look identical. Taking another crack at this. > Found Little Mambo and Flatwoods.

-- edit --

UFO - Found Ssopica and Banana 7 (Banananana?). Able to retrieve Banana 7 but I have to catch Ssopica doing... another whatever bacchishiin means (bad habit?), first.

Chibi-Robo - Gave the princess a shoe and the mom a receipt and planted the funky seeds in the planter that I thought I was supposed to plant them in but just didn't see the first time, even though the game clearly points it out to you fffffffff

GTA:SA - Did deconstruction, some of Driving School, and the San Fiero courier mission.

I know quite a few desk ladies.

Genetic engineering has gone too far.

Modern America is already post-apocalyptic, just someone else's apocalypse.

Pretty crazy.

Were apes exposed to Lavos (as they say in Chrono Cross) that triggered evolution?

I thought that was in CT. And then Lavos only did that so he could feed off of them anyway so I mean IMPLICATIONS.

Stop reminding me to get back to RoF fff >:CCC

Shadow Tower - Beat up Durhin. Got stuck for a long time trying to find a door which I'd previously found and was right next to another door and I'm just not very smart. Next up is:

Some additional part of the EARTH REALM beyond the poison floor in the Poisonous Caverns, or the Quaking Cavern which is sort of near where Durhin was

I kind of wonder how much of the stuff in this game is non-optional. Durhin and the first boss weren't really blocking anything. You get a reward for offing Durhin, but idk what killing the Guardian did.

Also this is probably the most I've been creeped out by a PSX game. It feels like those bizarre dreams you get when you've been asleep too long.

Little King's Story - Hung around in owl place and built Harvest Moon. Realized I was in the wrong place. Found the right place to go to. My citizens are covered in flowers.

Nanatsu Kaze - Got the flying tree sapling to grow a little. Note to self: Need to stand on a cliff edge and blow horn in order to summon the wind lion. This is probably going to come up again.

-- doot --

XBC - Did some hand things. I think noticed some stress cracks in the center of my disc which is kind of wtf because I didn't really take the game out of the case that much -- when I was playing it consistently, it was pretty much the only Wii game I was playing.

Anyway, copy of UFO came. Sort of want to play that. It's all kana though so that's got its ups and downs, although it's not supposed to be all that text heavy.

-- deedly --

Shadow Tower - Did the cave bit behind Durhin's area. ffffffffffffffff. Ended up blasting quite a few enemies with magic. Went through more HP potions than I would've liked. Ended up buying a holy feather and a magic potion /just in case/ after I got through. Probably a waste of cunes, but having an MP potion and a teleport feather is nice insurance.

Also I think I'm going to stop looking at walkthroughs. I end up hurting myself more trying to get secrets.

As for 13, I tried out that and Resonance of Fate, thinking I'd like RoF better.  RoF is good, but I got into FF13 far more.  And last year when I tried out demos of Bravely Default and Lightning Returns, I thought I'd like Bravely Default more.  Despite that game being more in my wheelhouse, I didn't enjoy it, but I loved the demo for Lightning Returns.  It's like that whole "dating someone who's totally your type on paper, but not having that spark/chemistry/what-have-you" vs. "dating someone who's not your type.  You say 'ehh, why not?' then end up having a great time with him/her."

We should have a thread for "You're totally not my type but I like you anyway" games. Like, in particular, Suikoden 3 became one of my favorite PS2 games last year and it's /very/ far removed from what I usually go for. My favorite DS RPGs were Dragon Quest 5 and Contact, and the functional-but-utilitarian generic JRPG combat in both is also not a thing I'm really big on. And then my favorite SNES RPG was Earthbound, which, uh... did the same thing.

idk I'd probably enjoy stuff more if I stopped intellectualizing it.

FFVIII in particular kind of pisses me off because honestly I actually do like it. Put another way, I remember the stupid stuff FFVIII does that pisses me off about it, whereas if I go to like FFXII, which I for realsies did /not/ like, I can't nail down any concrete details about what it did that annoyed me (or anything about it in general, really).

Remember kids, every time you smile, your teeth are just pieces of your skull that have escaped the tyranny of flesh.
