Afterwards I just went back to MGSV. I did beat Sahel, but things aren't still rollercoasting to the end or anything. The game is still being grindy as ever. When I'm playing I find myself thinking things like "why is material procession a thing" and "why do things take REAL TIME to get done, I get it, it's REALISTIC, but it's not fun". I know a good way to play this game actually, which would be to have it on at the background and then just spam combat deployment and waiting for mat process/income, but I refuse to waste my electricity on something like that.

Meh, can't wait to be done with this game and go back to less grindy and less insane RPGs.

I heard rumors the grind is in there to /inspire/ people to buy the microtransactions.

Black spots usually are cavaties, no?  Poking and prodding with the hook aside.  

Yeah. Is having dental x-rays taken an option? Cavities can be spotted on those (they look like dark dents on the side of teeth) and you could them with you if you decide to get a second opinion.

Okay further clarifying this since I'm not tripping balls on caffeine deprivation right now:

1. The black spots on my back teeth have been there for years, have been x-rayed, and have not shown any active cavities at those times.
2. Dental hygienist yesterday pointed out two cavities on my front teeth on x-ray. She was of the opinion that I could try remineralizing paste on those first.
3. Dental hygienist said the other x-rays looked fine (although I think she also said something to the effect of the x-rays wouldn't necessarily show cavities, which was kind of WTF?).
4. Actual dentist did not appear to look at the x-rays at all, didn't go over any of them with me, didn't actually answer my question when I asked what exactly he wanted to do, and in general he seemed really distracted, rushed, and cagey.

Also neither of them explained how to use the remineralizing paste they sold me. The clerk gave me the impression you use it like normal toothpaste, which is completely wrong.

So again not necessarily saying he was wrong, just that his mannerisms didn't instill any real confidence in me because of their unwillingness or inability to communicate clearly.

The hygienist hitting me in the face with the x-ray machine didn't really improve my opinion of their ability to operate machinery either.

Anyway for the sake of science, ordered another thing from the guy that sent me the thing that got lost. Maybe this'll make missing thing magically turn up.

But of a rollercoaster here.  Sorry about the police and the package. :/

Wait, police, what?

Anyway I went to the dentist and apparently I need like 12 fillings and eight sealant applications because the black spots that I've had on my teeth for like the past eight years are cavities. And I'm wondering why previous two dentists never raised any concerns. Last guy said they were calcium stains/deposits/something. Also recall previous dentists inspecting suspicious marks with a jabby hook tool to see if the enamel was soft or something. This guy didn't do that. idk if that's relevant.

But yeah breaks is that previous dentists were either /not/ doing a good job or new guy is just upselling me on fillings I don't need? I feel kind of fucked over either way.

Also now I've got this paranoia where I'm like oh nooooo I should've gone to the dentist sooner, I'm like on the verge of needing a root canal!!! except as I said, my teeth have been like this since fucking 2008 so

-- edit --

You know, I don't want to wait to get the fillings done but I'm thinking about calling up the office, cancelling the appointment, and getting it done elsewhere. idk why, that office just gave me bad vibes. Maybe I'm just miffed at the prospect of having 12 fillings and kind of in denial or something, but... I don't know, I really felt like I was being fast-talked.

Echo Night - Did.

I got the GOOD ending but not the BEST ending cause I didn't realize you had to feed the souls to the black guy from space.

Anyway, really enjoyed this as a whole, final set piece was cool. The resolution for Crea and William was kind of abrupt, which bugged me, but wevz. Really glad I got this. Gonna start on the sequels at some point.

STHA - Aaaand the (ostensibly Vandal) mansion dungeon is cool as hell. Did one side of the first floor and got a new robe for Melody, although a Chest Ghost (which has the coolest goddamn sprite ever) wiped out a ton of my HP/MP so I went back to town after that.

maybe I should give SitD another chance, but from what I saw it was grindy as hell and the dungeons weren't very detailed at all.

Okay, not really a food, but coffee. It gives me emotional stability in a way that no other food or beverage does :S Possibly less that it makes me feel happy per se and more that it's, uh, full of mood-altering chemicals, but hey --

<this pause is so pregnant TLC gon do a show on it>

I may've said this before but like

On the one hand, I love DQ7 and I'd /love/ to see it get a proper translation.

On the other hand, I worry that the 3DS version's just gonna be a bunch of

<Gabo> OY GUV
<Maribel> GUV.
<Maribel> * long string of increasingly forced puns *

The British accents were cool in 8 but the new naming conventions started getting uncomfortably WDly. Although I mean nothing can be worse than the nadir that was DQ4DS's Russian acceFUCK YOU SQUENIX.

STHA - Brief note about something I found really cool.

In one point, you meet a local king. When you meet him, your player character bows -- in first person. I do not recall seeing first person bowing in a game before. Again, little details and bits of polish like that are just SUPER neat. Verisimilitude for days up in this bitch.

Mushihimesama - Practiced the stage 5 midboss on Original Normal with the S-type shot for awhile. Notes:

First Pattern - Try to stay in the center. You can sort of tap dodge this.
Second Pattern - Go to extreme right or left. As soon as boss starts shooting, rapidly and constantly tap dodge in the other way.
Third pattern - Try to keep in the center of the boss. Nothing special with the first two waves of bullets. In the third one, fly /through/ the secondary set of bullets before they close on you.
Fourth pattern - Go to extreme right or left. Tap dodge in sets of three beats, where you move on the first two beats and rest on the third. Do this not TOO quickly.

-- doot --

STHA - Got the key from the Enrich dungeon, went back to Desire, exchanged a dog for a fairy and a mithril for a magic ring for Adrian Rodi, went to the Desire Mine and found a succubus I missed, went back to Enrich, 'splored Aborigine Forest, got a free helmet for Rodi... Also briefly hung around in Snake Dammit Caverns but that was less than productive because my dudes died. Fortunately you just restart back at town without losing anything if you die because this game isn't bullshit.

Also I think Elise made a little girl's head explode. Talking legits Fist hidebu action here.

Next step is cleaning out the cemetery in the forest, buying whatever other equipment I need and don't find in the cemetery, and then heading to Aborigine Manner. I don't thiiink I can get Billy Wolfwhistles yet, so there's probably not much point in desnaking the snakeplace.

Echo Night - About to go back to the engine room. I thiiiink that's the last bit.

Anyway might go back to Dohkio-Ki for the sake of testing kanji lookup thing i wrote.

-- flerp --

STHA - Cleared out the Aborigine Forest graveyard, except the leftmost gravebox on the map leads to another dungeon, so'p.

Called post office again to see if there was any update on investigation into where my stuff went. Their response was that it wasn't at their office, so they couldn't help me.

Flagged down a mail carrier. Asked him the same thing. His response is that when packages are scanned, they have some GPS info recorded with them so you can see where they were /actually/ scanned at. And that the post office should have been able to look this up for me.


Anyway one of my neighbor's male units [sic] is bulging so I'll ask them to see if they got it by mistake whenever they show up.

-- ff --

turns out nope

Fallout 4 - I talked to a man that could see the future and then I found a blue lady in a hover chair. She was being a negative influence on the local king, who was possessed by alien ghosts, as was our former friend, but we couldn't kill the ghosts so maybe they weren't the alien ghosts but some other ghosts because I think the alien ghosts are friendly. The lady in the blue chair threw us in the dungeon, but fortunately the canine companion was there on the ceiling and came down from it to break us out. There was a well to a second dungeon beneath the dungeon, with a room where the man that could see the future was. He told us to find a key and go to the mansion beyond the forest where the man who wouldn't help us was. The key was in the dungeon beneath the dungeon. The enemies in the dungeon beneath the dungeon were hard so I left and went to the town and got new equipment and went back and they were easier with the new swords, and later the wizard found a new iron staff in the snake pot after we killed it. And then I found the goat plate, the snake plate, and the pentagonal plate. Also I killed a crab and it gave me armor as thanks. We now have crowd control. Sometimes the skeleton show up and the ninja tries to make them go to sleep but the skeletons aren't always tired. There are a lot of jellyfish down here but they're harmless.

Speaking of which, considering that Beyond the Beyond, Shining Wisdom, Shining the Holy Arc, and Shining Force 3 all came out within a three year period and were made by the same dev team afaik (also caveat, I kind of like BtB and I never played SW, only saw Let's Plays. Which is why I never played it), the gulf between the level of detail and polish in the former two and latter two is totally incomprehensible.
45  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Tips for Lunar? on: November 13, 2015, 09:19:53 PM
All I remember about Lunar is playing the GBA version, making it all the way to the second part of the final battle without much trouble and getting slaughtered in two or three turns. Then going back and fighting enemies in the final dungeon, realizing that I was high enough for it to take hours to gain one level, and quitting the game for good. Don't know if it's the same for other versions, but I thought that was the most ridiculous difficulty spike I've ever encountered in a video game.

Lunar Legend is

certainly a thing.
