@ Aeolus' link:

It's not quite as bad as it looks. Square's released a bunch of games between FFXII and FFXV, it's just that they don't know how math works and have been vacillating between13 and 14 for awhile now.

You just have to remember that FFXV is really like FFXVIII or 20 and it's all okay.

Shining Force is longer than I remember it being, but I still like it. I'm halfway through Chapter 2 now. I don't remember half these fights. I do remember everything being harder than this, but then again, I played it back when concepts of "equipment" and "levels" were foreign to me. Also, enemies are smarter than I forst thought. They don't just rush you, they try to trap you and get you in a position where they can hurt you and then their buddies can come in for the kill. Definitely more intelligent than I thought they were doing at first.

I think the comparable simplicity of SF's mechanics honestly serve it really well. Also wrt SF's difficulty, it's easy to fall into the trap of just using the main dude for everything and underlevelling the healers and mages, which works fine for a bit but then screws you over /reallllllly/ hardcore.

Although I hit the opposite problem in SF3 and, uh, got Synbios underlevelled and ended up overlevelling Grace :S

Anyway, played Outrun 2006 and Suikoden 3 for a bit. About to do some battle in Chisha with Chris. I need to quit neglecting S3 because it's very much the most I've enjoyed an RPG in a very long time :S

Anyway, also in the mood to spend some time with TLS/Saint's Row 2/Unreal Tournament. Actuallky 2K4 in particular but I don't feel like digging it off of my old desktop. Anything /autumnal/ really. Maybe SimCity 4.

I'm putting the shmups on hold 'cause shmups aren't an /autumnal/ thing to me.

1. DoY is fucking delightful. Also honestly I like the chiptunes in that as much as the CD audio, tho i got this weird fetish for TG16 music anyway.

2. The first dungeon is like the worst part of DQ8.

I still don't care about GamerGate (or I guess #GamerGate since we that generation), but the title for this article pretty much sums up everything about 2014 perfectly.

I remember going to a Pizza Rustica sometime in the past three years. It's the one on High Street, in Columbus. I got some focaccia sandwich that wasn't very good. I also remember that some guy forgot their bathroom key at home.

I don't remember anything else about that day, and I have no idea if it was 2012 or 2013 when I went there.

This is bugging the hell out of me.

What's the worst they could do if you don't help them?

I mean besides not giving you any weird dead grandma money.

Only the one this time.

That's Soobel's art. They draw TONS of hat horses.

They also made a wad for... some Western Doom-clone that I think LucasArts made. With fat horses.

http://soobel.planet.ee/outlaws/NWX.html is there webpage. It... should be SFW.

ONLY AUGHTIES KIDS REMEMBER GROWING UP FURRY.

--- edit ---

That shoulda said fat horses. Preserving hat horses for hossterity.

Uhhhhhhhhh

What was your favorite childhood medicine?

I have this nostalgic soft spot for children's tylenol and dimetapp.

I also used to take amoxycillin and something called rhineton? a lot (I think the latter's a brand name for something or is spelled differently and I'm just remembering my mom's weirdass pronunciation of it), and one I remember liking and one I did not, although they were both pink and I'd get them confused.

They should make non-medicated children's tylenol I could eat a handful of the fuckers.

Also have been playing Five Nights at Freddy's. I'm stuck on Night 2 but I'm loving it. I'm making sure to play in the dark, alone. The game makes good use of the player's tension, since you want to know where the characters are at, and when I see that someone has moved, I panic a little bit and start checking all the cameras until I find them, inadvertently using up power. I've jumped quite a few times. Definitely a worthwhile investment of 5 bucks.

Thats a scottgames game isn't it?
I remember him from his early stuff. Very "unique" art style, rather quirky and a bit creepy. He was also one of very few indie developers that made RPGs in MMF. I'm not sure what Five Nights is made in, but if I was a betting man Id go with MMF or whatever clickteam calls it now.

Beats me. This is my first exposure to his work, albeit a very positive first exposure. I would be willing to check out his other stuff after I finished with FNaF.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaait.

FNAF is by the Iffermoon guy?

Oh my god my mind is SO BLOWN by this. How did I not realize.

Anyway, played some quantities of Outrun 2006 and Suikoden 3 before... uh, I went out of town and then I was barely awake last night.

The thing with Zelda 1 is that it didn't have any puzzles. You had some really light bits where you needed a key item to access wherever but the dungeons were entirely about figuring out how to navigate them, as is, and figuring out how to clear all the enemies in a room without taking any hits using the limited means provided to you.

What if the show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy was actually about a disembodied floating eyeball that wold follow the straight guy of the week and just whisper stuff at them like HEY YOU SHOULD MAKE OUT WITH DUDES. MAKING OUT WITH DUDES IS SUPER GREAT.

And the show was just about the straight guy tryna pick up a dude but the dude he was tryna pick up always got freaked out by the floating eyball.



"Goshdangit Queer Eye, now I'll never pick up a dude. AND THE PROM'S TOMORROW!"

So I went back to my old college town today.
Weirddamn memories.
Vague nostalgia for a place I used to live but mixed with the awareness that I never liked living there.
And the real stab's just that it's a part of my life that's not a part of my life anymore -- something done and distanced from myself. So, rmething that was a part of me and defined me that's now just relegated to half-remembered upwellings in dreams I get when I sleep too much.

The most confusing part is trying to remember what I cared about back then or my mental state in general because I didn't have any obsession riding my mind to the point of psychosis (prior to 2009 at least, where I was completely death obsessed). I'm not cognizant of what my internal monologues were like back then, or even what they would've been like, and this gap in memory is why I have a hard time reconciling that who I was between 2006 and 2010 and who I am now are not in fact different people.

... Stop making me want to move.

... Actually I've got about six years combined experience between German and Swedish so I could probably pick up Dutch without too much trouble. I wonder if my soul-crushing megacorp has any offices over there..................
