More Dragon Quest VIII. It says something about the nature of this game (and my tendency to enjoy this series) that I've actually enjoyed the silly British accents, when in games like Xenoblade I've found them to be rather grating.

Dude what's even worse is when you get like an import game from Japan and everyone's putting on these stupid Japanese accents and saying all these nonsense words. What's WITH that?

LD95 - Trying to decipher arabic words written in katakana when I don't know much Japanese and absolutely zero Arabic.

Driver: SF - Played this some more. love.

TD:EW - Gave this another shot and... no, this game's awful, I have no idea what the guy that wrote the HG101 article found so praiseworthy about this.

It's even more disappointing cause I have fond memories of /getting/ the game, since it was a day in early 2013 when the weather was nice and I had a lengthy and pleasant walk after getting game, and now it's like, ruined that memory for me.

Got around to actually playing The Divide: Enemies Within for a significant period of time and uh...

- The level design is not good. Maybe it gets better but... It's exceedingly mazey, there's a lot of unintersting, backtracky platforming heavy bits, you can't get anywhere quickly... there's no *flow* to the levels at all.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojkNbAGP3RI&feature=player_detailpage#t=588 This video shows what I'm talking about -- you can't jump at this point, so the levels... they're literally simple mazes. And once you can jump, it's the same thing but with platforming.

- First boss was an uninteresting bullet sponge.

I'd heard this was a forgotten classic and I was really interested in playing it :T

What kind?  Kheema curry? Kadai paneer?  Aloo gobi?  You can't mention curry to an Indian guy without details.  

It would've been an amazing twist if it had been like, Thai or Japanese curry or something.

Driver: San Francisco - This is delightful! Uplay is not!

Anyway, cleaned up one of the GUI bitmaps for LD:PotB. Maybe have half the names done?

Sort-of-weird moment at work: Couple of my coworkers are in their early-50s and hve kids that are... in college or recent college grads. I'm 27, so not /that/ much older than their kids. They were talking about their responses to their kids getting tattoos/having weird hair/wevz in college.

Meanwhile I'm the weird, long-haired guy with a beard.

It's kind of weird having colleagues that have kids that are about as old as you are.

Anyway apparently I need to build up a credit score for some reason. Guess I'll use this as an excuse to binge purchase more Saturn games.


Also gotta say job is still confusing me. I feel like the "requirement gathering" and "planning" weird doing right now is... actually some stalling tactic since it mostly involves like...

Basically we're just shuffling information we already got between documents.

Like right now, in particular, I'm scanning groups of 50 printouts into a single PDF, and then printing these out into xps files one page at a time for some reason. IDK why, the other BA wanted me to do it.

Basically everyone agreed to an overly tight schedule for no reason, and decided to cope with the deadline by not /actually/ doing anything.

This doesn't really affect me, I'm just bored as hell.

Also eyes aren't so much the /windows to the soul/ as they are the /fingers of the brain/ and I have a hard time reconciling this with anything.

Fallout 2 - Dropped. How they went from FO1 to this is a mystery.

Fallout 2 is just textbook example of this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second-system_effect

Moreso than any other game I've played.

Anyway, down to one GUI on Lunatic Dawn: PotB. Gonna try to do the names tonight.


pffff the (katakana-spelled) names in PotB are bizarre and there's a lot of them.

Why can't you pay a years rent up-front on an apartment so you don't have to worry about it? If you have to move mid-year, it's not like you're getting out of your contract, so the money's gone anyway.

@tomara: I want to say I can sort of relate -- mostly a bunch of my coworkers from the past three years are kind of in limbo now. I personally was lucky -- but if I go into details that'd probably identify where I work, so'p.

Also ffffffff spent 20 minutes on something that was an obvious solution because it didn't occur to me that the tool I was using was just giving wrong output.

Also dang. Childhood. Whoops. Need to stop GISing old books.

Dice, if you want to enter the lucrative Youtube market maybe you can do an RPG themed version of this

I like Ephemeral Rift's videos more than I should.

I also like juice a lot.

Why are you paying in cash son it's the 90s we have debit cards now.

Alternatively, after they gives you the bill, take the change out of their hand one coin at a time, in the most fumbling way possible.

I'm trying to be nicer to other people but goshdangit they're REALLY MAKING IT HARD :D

@klyde: idk about Saints Row 4, but 3's supposed to be fairly succinct. 2 and 3 aren't terribly difficult, give you a lot of checkpoints in missions, have really navigatable cities, and in general do a REALLY good job of respecting the player's time. It's not like GTAV where you need like, minimum one hour per play session to be productive.

--- edit ---

fwiw, there were some aspects of SR2's chargen I preferred, namely you have the option for two-toned hair and the body types are more varied. iirc SR3 has a more divided male/female dichotomy, and the body types are in the muscular to fat range, whereas you can make skinnier characters in SR2 and I /believe/ gender was a slider separate from body type, so you could make more blatantly intersexed and not just effeminate characters.

Also you don't lose vehicles you store in the garage in SR2/3/4 unless you explicitly tell the game to delete them or sell them to the... guy doing the car collection missions. This is probably the single hugest good feature the series has over GTA. It may not sound like much but holy dang it is.

Anyway, forgot to mention -- played Shining Force 3 and just screwed around Aspia for a bit.

Also, in Suik 3, I... went back to Buduhec and got a different scene telling me to stop Yuber, but... I think I sequence broke something :S

Suik 3 makes me feel happy. I could actually see myself grinding a little just to build up my dudes that I've collected.
