Also raided Billy Badguy's warehouse.

-- e --

Vesperia - "Only one cube, measuring 14 by 14 by 14 feet, was actually built, with only one working door that could actually support the weight of the actors. The color of the room was changed by sliding panels."

Otherwise, I'm in Capua Torim, which the locals call Torim Harbor. Capua Torim, or Torim Harbor, is the first reasonably-sized city in the game.

(Seriously, did Mike Tidwell translate this?)

Radiant Silvergun - Oooohkay level 4b's boss kind of pisses me off. There doesn't seem to be any particular strategy to it -- just a lot of micrododging.

You should play FFVII

cause when you get to the part where Aerith's in the drainpipe with the hobo and is all "This guy are sick!"

You can be all

"you and me both buddy."

--- edit ---

Actual serious answer? PSX spyro games.

- Not terribly difficult.
- Colorful.
- Nice music with a good beat that you could dance to.
- Feels like on drugs.
- Seriously you could just trip around on Nyquitussin (which is what I will be naming my pony OC) and just gallop Spyro around the monk habitat while giggling.

ToV - idk the more I play this the more unfinished it feels. I'm guessing it'll eventually get to a point where there's more in the way of like, sidequests and side events or something, but...

TLS - Currently at fireworks. Just dropped off runaway princess with psychotic drunken lesbian. I'm sure she'll be fine. Being able to launch banana peels at any NPC should be a mandatory feature in all games.

SR2 - I just did the race at the little mountain by the university to get some Respect.

Crimzon Clover - I noticed some difference in the enemy patterns between Training mode and... playing it normally. Not sure if there's some sort of rank system going on?

Crimzon Clover - A few practice runs. The second half of stage 3 in particular is a bitch, with the... ball things. And the round floaty guys that eat up a lot of damage. Did do a pretty decent run on Arcade Boost Mode with the yellow ship.

The Last Story - Got another recipe sidequest so I can try to get some Gnome Copper from that, oh except I need another banana cause I had a dude turn my banana into banana arrows, chased a bunch of kids around, caught a frog, doinked my dudes head against a signpost a lot, walked around back alleys finding chests, thing I managed to chain five found items together.

Vesperia - Up to Capua Nor, which is maintaining the trend of only have two buildings I can actual go in per town. I'm not able to block effectively in combat at all. Also the hit detection feels weird -- it's like I'm getting hit by enemy's special attacks even though I'm not that close to them..? Also walked up some promising-looking path behind the mountains on the other side of Ehmead Hill, which didn't actually lead to anything.

Maybe they meant it went downhill RIGHT AFTER that one.

What about Ys Chronicles on the easiest mode possible?
22  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Good Game For When You're Sick? on: July 09, 2014, 02:32:14 AM
Robitussin + Spyro or BF1942 bot matches on easy.

Also didn't PSIV cost like 100 dollars when it was new?

Anyway, did the first two Zero missions in GTA: SA. I got supply lines on the second try. I'm assuming the PC controls make it easier, unless you try flying with the mouse, which is, uh... mouse steering doesn't work. I mean it was close but I kind of frupped up a lot.

So yeah, basically the water temple all over again -- difficultly was WAY overstated on this thing.

Also killed my hand on Crimzon Clover lolololllllllll.


CC on Novice mode is... way too easy. I got up to the Ex boss without continuing. On my first time. Hrg.

I used to know a chick named Seven.

I've never encountered someone so prolifically fkvcing insane. Actually I think I mentioned this a few years back when I was playing DDS2, because her real name was Jenna and she was apparently a hermaphrodite, and living in the vicinity of Portland at the time.

... I need to not remember things.

I started playing Wizardry 8. I say started, but I haven't really got past character creation yet, it's all a bit overwhelming and confusing when you're used to D&D stats. I'm going to use a Gadgeteer, Psionic and Mage, but I'm not sure what to with the other three party slots. I'd like to use some of the other non-traditional classes but I don't want to make things overly difficult.

DPB: Here, one mod you absolutely need and one that I made for my own purposes.

http://wolfie.wiz8.de/Wiz8Fast.html <- This makes enemies walk faster in combat. It's old but basically required, because otherwise combat is you going to be sitting there watching enemies walk around most of the time. I recommend putting it on max so they just pop into place.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/22006397/wiz_8_speedmod.zip <- And this one I made. It speeds up enemy attack and dodge animations to be more, uh, bearable. If it crashes with this one, send me the crash message so I can fix whatever animation I broke. I think I already took care of everything that was doing this, but just in case. To install it, Copy the Data folder into your main Wizardry 8 directory. Override everything.

I'd recommend playing the game on an easier setting because you and the enemy both tend to miss a lot, so combat goes on forever without anything really happening.

Anyway, I did a mission in San Andreas and I think I have the Worst Mission Ever available soon so I'mma check that out. Did very little in Vesperia (I wish the towns were bigger in this. Why do modern JRPGs have such tiny towns?) Getting sort of better at Crimzon Clover.

Oh wait.

Mind just came back to me from reading other peoples' stuff.

Wild Arms - I got this at a Music for a Song (I think) in Gatlinburg when I was like 12. Knew nothing about it, was getting into RPGs though and it LOOKED interesting. And I was on vacation and this was before smart phones, so I couldn't look anything up on it.

It's not like one of my all time favorites, but it's still a game I really enjoy for a lot of reasons.

Final Fantasy Legend 2 - Got it at a Target on the way home from Florida when I was like, 10 or 11. Probably the Target in Lexington, KY. Probably 4th grade, 'cause it was Secret of Evermore and Earthbound that got me into RPGs, and that was 4th grade. Anyway, knew nothing about it, got it strictly on brand recognition, and, uh... it's... one of my favorite games ever although I have no idea why.

Realms of the Haunting - Got this at an HPB in Lexington, KY on the way back from Gatlinburg some November a few years ago. Didn't really know anything about it. Looked cool. THINK we had smartphones by that point so I bummed my mom's for a second to see what HOTUD had to say on it.

Didn't get around to actually playing it for a few years but oh my god what a brilliant game.

Tong Nou - Got this at a now-defunct used CD/game/movie store at an outlet mall in Pidgeon Forge. I was like 17 at the time. This was before SomethingAwful let's play'd it. That was... jarring experience.

And here's a special one.

Captain Comic 2 - Got this from the Fairfield Mall down by Dayton when I was in third grade, and got it home to discover it was missing the copy protection sheet. Couldn't play it till I was in sixth grade, at which point I found a cracked executable, although it turns out that this was, uh, a 'trapped' cracked executable that told you to go buy the game after a certain point.

Eventually found someone with a code sheet to send me ;) CC2's kind of really clunky but, uh, in terms of DOS platformers, it's one I really enjoyed.

... Toki Tori 2+?

I used to do a lot of blind purchases at flea markets but I don't remember getting anything I super fell in love with out of doing that.

I'm trying to remember what it was like before A) access to millions of game reviews instantly and B) Steam sales making EVERY purchase a whim purchase.
