....Why does Yuna say "ok" weird.  She says like within half a second.  This happens about ten times too. x)

They couldn't figure out how to re-synch the lip synching so Yuna had to talk funny to match it, idk that's what I heard, the bible says it i believe it.

Suiko 3 - Up to Caleria with Geddoe. Boss fight in the mountains was interesting -- ended up sacrificing Queen by having Joker use a /really/ damaging AoE spell which... ended up paying off cause it got rid of the extra heads. Still feel like the dungeon length and encounter rate is well-paced to the amount of magic you get, even if the dungeons are pretty simple. Also picked up Johnny Blackjack and bought some salt.

Also do the chapter play out differently based on the order you do them in or did I completely forget how the game played out? I could've /sworn/ Geddoe Ch. 1 ended after Karaya.

Whatever, I'm surprised but I'm like ridiculously addicted to this game now.

... Wouldn't necessarily mind having a copy of Suikoden 2 but the upper limit I'd be willing to spend on it's about thirty dollars less than it's ever sold for in the past decade or so.

Also, thinking of a system in Legend of Mana where the ST bar governs other things besides launching ST attacks -- plunge attacks stun/knockback the enemy but cost meter, quick attacks don't hitstun anymore but build meter, movement speed is tied to the meter in various ways...

Oh god the Yunalesca fight. Beat her on my first try somehow. That was grueling. Half hour battle. BARELY got through it.

Goddamn was that satisfying though.

I remember having to swap characters out /constantly/.

Suikoden 3 - Went on a minor recruitment/trading drive in Geddoe Ch. 1. Honestly really getting into the game now (even those glorious Dreamcast release title visuals are growing on me. Except in VDZ/Brass Castle. Fuck Zexen). Also I've quit seeing the tiny dungeons as a detriment after remembering how mazelike they could get in S1/2.

LoM - Actually made progress on figuring out how the battle code works.

the 3DS XL was on sale today for $149.99 so I bit on it. Pretty good deal, got it in the blue. Now I just need some games to play on it...Guess I'll start with Radiant Historia.

Umihara Kawase and Kokuga *wild limb flailing*

I'm only familiar with national Canadian politics circa 2006*. What's the Parti Quebecois?

* I DID SOME SHIT IN COLLEGE.

When Grandia first came out for the Sega Saturn and I imported it, I was ashamed because it was all in Japanese and I couldn't explain to any of my roomates what was going on in the story.  The game was (and still is) awesome, so I regret nothing nowadays.

Nowadays, I think I might be ashamed of liking anything released by Working Designs.  Particularly the Lunar series, Growlanser Generations, and Vanguard Bandits.

GG didn't feel too off the rails to me -- apparently that and AtL were pretty faithful, although I remember they had to cut some text from AtL1 because it was coded weird. I'm aware that Lunar had a lot of changes but they never felt weird to me. Although the stuff they did with Mythe's tower was dumb.

Alundra was the really FFS GODDAMMIT one. I heard Albert Odyssey was way off too, but I don't care about Albert Odyssey

Also I'm curious how Dragon Force's English and Japanese scripts differ.

Dragon Quest VII has some really great plot arcs, the problem is the sheer amount of stuff you need to do in the game.

DQ7 was a game I played in bursts and I'd really recommend taking that kind of approach to it -- it's not something you want to shotgun.

I think Pinobee's the only game I have where I'm actually like "wtf did I buy this." And I guess that fits here because it has some nominal RPG qualities and I actually kind of like it.

I seriously have no idea why I bought it though.

Actually I do feel sort of ashamed about /hoarding/ games. I like to pretend they're my pets, because my actual pets are dead.

No 'cause I think a lot of lemons are coated in shellac so I don't eat the rind.

I used to though.

--- edit ---

Hm. Ordered a disc-only copy of Shining Force 3 for a goodish price, but now I see that a complete copy is going into the end of its auction and it's... also a good price. Thinking about sticking a bid on that and seeing what happens. I could flip the disc only one and break even without problems. The shipping fees on the complete one are sort of loop and idk if I it'd be insured if it got lost in shipping, though.

--- edit ---

Yeah, okay, someone bid on it. Looks like it's going to go to an eleventh hour bidding war, which is what I expected.

I eat lemons a lot.

Like I go to a restaurant and they put a lemon slice in my drink and it's like I COULD SQUEEZE THIS BUT I'D JUST SCREW UP AND HALF THE JUICE WOULD END UP IN MY EYES so I'm like screw it and then I just eat it.

Actually I'm vaguely annoyed with what I used to like when I was a teenager, because I liked it for stupid reasons. Like I used to hold up Daggerfall as some paragon of RPGs because it was really, uh, open and had random quests? Basically I was a pretentious little mofo.

Not ashamed about liking any of these, but uh here have some games I enjoyed that everyone else hated:

- I like Ultima 8 a lot. No, it's nowhere near as good as 7*, but I thought it had a genuinely interesting world to explore.

- I liked CC more than CT. And I could analyze why but I won't because the reason's pretty simple -- the emotional response that I used to get from CT is something that I now get from CC.

- SaGa is my favorite Square series, and I've enjoyed all of the SaGa games I've played. The only ones I haven't played are RS2, the GB game remakes, and the WSC card game that was sort of nominally part of the series.

- DQ7's maybe my third favorite DQ game.

- fwiw I like Contact, Opoona, and Time Stalkers. Also from what I played of that Treasure action RPG on the Genesis I really liked it, and having a shadow under your dude made platforming a LOT easier than in Landstalker.

* Given how much of a fan of U7 I am this isn't saying much, though ;)

WHAT THE HELLS

Suik 3 - Played more of Geddoe's chapter.

- Fight with Borus is sort of bullshit. Sure, it's optional, but I got locked into not being able to heal before Geddoe and Queen left the party. Ggg.

That being said, I'm really enjoying Geddoe's chapter. Stuff's starting to open up now, the characters are interesting, it's been more in the Grassland areas which are a *looooooooooot* more interesting than Vinay del Zexa and Brass Castle.

So yeah, in summary:

Hugo - :D
Geddoe - :D
Chris - >:C ffff
