Decided to play a bit of the red-headed black step-sheep of the Tales of series recently and quite enjoyed it. Not putting it in rotation for now, but still happy I gave it a shot.

Anyway, sticking these in so I remember to play them later:

Tales of Phantasia - Off to charge me up some Rheiards.

Okami -

Final Fantasy 2

Just boarded the Dreadnought. The game is pretty fun if you just ignore how stats are raised and just go with the flow.

Basically this, although the magic growth rate is... doofy, especially since a lot of the usefuler curative spells are like several levels deep into their spell like. There's quite a lot I DO like about FF1 and 2, although stuff like FF1's 100% encounter tiles and 2's... magic growth rate doofiness is really offputting to me.

That being said, despite FF3 being ostensibly less broken than FF1 or 2, the DS version of it at least did quite a lot more to get on my nerves.

SO:FD for me was such a mixed bag. I enjoyed it well enough to finish it but couldn't shake the feeling of "this is like a demo for Star Ocean 2" the whole time I played.

Not having played SOFD, but from the screenshots it looked like it lost a lot of the... look and feel that made SO1 unique. I've got a lot of issues with SO1's dungeons and battle system, but they could've cleaned those up without entirely changing the feel of the game, like with ToP PSX.

Save the bees!

Eradicate everything else even remotely vespine!

Also geese.

Who even came up with geese that was a horrible idea.

The only time I ever think I might've gotten tipsy was when I ate like half a stollen -- which has alcohol-soaked fruits in it -- while I was cleaning mold out of my fridge last New Year's Eve because this is how exciting my life is.

also I'm pretty sure it would've only had a proof of like, negligible, and it just kind of made me zonk.

Currently feeling like a total monster for killing a wasp that had gotten into my shower instead of trying to corral it back outside :\

I'm in a bit of a gaming quagmire.  I started my FFVI no esper/natural magic/no grinding LP because I wanted to play something that challenged me, but I've recently been playing SMT: Nocturne every night for exactly the same reason.  It's the most difficult post 16 bit era RPG I think I've ever played (gloriously so).  

I'm not giving up on finishing my LP though, I refuse to have a repeat of my FFT disaster.

If you're digging Nocturne, I'd really recommend the Digital Devil Saga games. Pretty much the same combat mechanics, with the exception that you've got a set party instead of demons to catch, and you CAN master all of the skills.

DDS2 is harder and has a better skill system and some nice changes to the combat, although DDS1's got the better dungeons. They're also considerably more generous with the save points. (Strange Journey's quite a bit easier and while I do like it a lot there's also a lot of things I could complain about with it, and I've heard that SMTIV's really easy to break by... focusing entirely on like one type of character build).



So Bairados is the name of the world in Lunatic Dawn: Passage of the Book. To answer my own question from months ago.

I'm not a cool teen with a cellphone so someone explain this to me:

What's up with Paul Ryan's pose their? He looks like he's all



oh my god I JUST realize that there wasn't a mirror dividing that room in half.
Like I saw the metal parts of the chairs and thought those were the bottoms of some mirror

I've noticed lately that I like games with... maybe not beautiful per se, but interesting worlds I can wander around in, at my own pace.

You don't really get that from, say, a movie.

I guess I would compare it to walking through an art museum versus watching a documentary about art. You're still seeing the same sculptures and paintings but in the former you get to spend as much or as little time looking at individual pieces as you like.

I might still end up voting for Gary Johnson if it looks like he can get the 15% of the votes he needs to get the most ironic government funding ever

I'm actually pretty surprised you'd ever vote Libertarian given some of the things I've seen you post before (most notably that you've expressed support for the "proletariat" at least once IIRC).

My belief system would probably categorize me as a socialist yes.  So if I voted Libertarian it would have a lot more to do with helping to break up the Republican party (LOTS of disaffected conservatives are flocking to Gary Johnson) than any sort of policy they are presenting.  Unfortunately(?) even though Trump is leading in Indiana by 20 points I'm not sure my conscience will allow me to go through with it.

I really wonder if the GOP exists after this election regardless of what happens. Like maybe Trump wins, abdicates immediately, and Pence ends up becoming popular enough to win a second term? Becomes the face of the GOP for years? Becomes synonymous with Indiana? Forever!?

-- edit --

I'm actively trying to not be cynical about the non-Trump candidates/politicians because the whole GOSH EVERY POLITICIAN IS EVIL thing kind of bums me out :TTTTTTTTTTTT

Or at the very least, you will stumble across multiple gems that require a commitment of new Hardware/Software to access.

HG101 and this thing are also quagmires of strange and terrifying digital delights/bank account murder and where I find half this stuff :V.


Okami - Did the first little dungeony area and got the plant regrowth brush technique. Also fed some pigs! So I feel like I was being needlessly harsh on Okamiden when I played it a million years ago, but the little touches like feeding the animals was something I missed -- and I think the sequel downplayed a lot of the plant growy stuff? Sure, it's ultimately just more collectible Zeldatroid stuff, but it felt elegant in its way.

Panzer Dragoon Zwei - Up to chapter 6. Got a really high shot ratio on Episode 5. Maybe I'll try 1CCing this sometime!?

So Ohio's under a non-tornadic funnel cloud watch.

That's uh... new.

Another thing that's weirding me out about this election:

Taxation was a big deal in 2008 and 2012.

I'm hearing like nothing about it now.

SOOooooooooo I was gonna post about how the Trump/Russia connection thing was PROBABLY overstating things but then uh...




14-year-old robs and shoots a 26-year-old playing Pokemon Go. Something seems a smidgen backwards there. Perhaps several smidgens. Maybe a full smudgen.

Anyone else have a hard time keeping track of what Mesh is actually playing?  All those acronyms/nicknames/shorthand...

Basically what Klutz said, although some of them are domestic releases that are just really old/obscure (Virtual-On Oratorio Tangram!) FONV and ToP seem to be pretty common acronyms though :SSS (Also some of the imports, uh... I'm really not all that sure what they're really called!) Sorry bout that -- I'll go back and try to fix some of them :S

Tales of Phantasia - Found the Unicorn. Currently in ChronopolisThor.

I might give TotA another go on not-hardware when I'm done with this and see if that fixes the load times, which were a major factor in why the game didn't really please me.
