Pearls Before Swine - Another Time

This takes me back to... about four years ago when I was less offminded.

... I thought I made a post bemoaning how I bought the VC version a year ago. HRM. Wonder where I put that.

Anyway, @ Prime Mover:

1. MM's time system got more manageable for me once I found out about the slow time song, also you unlock more Smack Owls and teleportings as you go.

2. Nobody was bothered by FFXIII-III's thing because nobody played FFXIII-III.

Yeah nobody has a 60-seat majority in the senate so this changes basically nothing.

Stayed up till two last night cleaning, because they were doing pest treatment in my building today and we had to have the kitchens emptied out. Worked from home so I could vote this morning. Worked from McDonalds for an hour while my apartment was being sprayed. Perception of time is really screwed up at this point.

Also I'm really tired of owning plants but idk how to rehome them. Part of me just wants to throw them in the dumpster. I spent a lot of time and money and them in college and now I hate them. There's probably something in there about why I have no personal connections irl.

And dishware. I haven't done dishes since I started working -- I pretty much just eat... yogurt and protein bars and stuff you don't need dishes for now. Should probably just throw it all out.

If I only wanted to play one RF game, would you recommend 3 or 4???? I get the impression that RF is better than normal Harvest Moon in terms of not having so many useless crops/things you can do with no real tangible benefit (do most of the things you can cook in BTN and FOMT actually accomplish much?*).

Didn't do much productive gaming wise -- various fiddling aboutery in Under Defeat HD, Fragile Moon Dreams, ACNL, Viva Pinata, and Friends of Mineral Town. I'm rather terrible at Viva Pinata.

Under Defeat HD is interesting and I have realized very quickly that I do NOT understand the mechanics well here. Especially how scoring and rank work. Also the bullet patterns really remind me of Eschatos.

-- edit --

UDHD: I have no idea how rank works in this. I seem to be having an easier time with the cannon than the rocket for the stages.

* Elaborating on this -- and idk if I mentioned this when I was rambling about ACNL -- but in HM64 you've only got one crop per season worth growing (out of at most three in spring -- turnips always make more money than cabbages and potatoes), and in BTN/FOMT, it's... still pretty much the same issue. There's no system of pros and cons for growing different crops -- there's just one that's better than all the other and another one or two you just never grow.

Basically, for a series focused on farming, the crop raising mechanics have never been particularly functional or interesting in the main HM games :T

Chrono Cross: Hey Kids Remember when Games Had Color?
That's kind of a thing with FFVII too -- yeah, on a technical level it looks bad, but the simplicity and brightness of the visuals is really refreshing compared to what you see in a lot of modern games.

Actually that's kind of what bugs me with Saints Row 2's graphics -- in terms of modeling and texturing you get a lot of visually clear, simple, and readable visuals, which I like, even though there's some goofiness like all the sign fonts being in Comic Sans (this has its charm). But then there's this kind of gross looking anti-aliasing (I do not like antialiasing in general) and the post-processing effects wash things out a lot.

ACNL - Paid off my first loan and opted to expand the house. Talked a villager out of moving. Looks like it MIGHT rain so maybe I can finally get a gyroid.

Gonna go play FRAGGLE DREAMS for a bit.

General - Got some proper DVD cases and transferred my caseless games to them (along with some 360 games with overly-aggressive spindles). In the process of doing this, I discovered that I have a copy of Wild Arms 3. Totes gon' play that in November -- I associate Wild Arms heavily with Thanksgiving. Probably cause I got WA1 a million years ago on a family vacation over Thanksgiving. Also my copy of WA2 is haunted by a turkey.

I beat Valkyria Chronicles 3 and the iOS version of Final Fantasy V today. Was generally impressed with both games.

I realize it's hypocritical of me to complain about FFVI's dungeon designs and then turn around and be all OH YEAH FFV IS TOTALLY MY SECOND FAVORITE FF.

I realize this, but I don't caaaaare.

AVP 2000 - Yeeeeeeah I still don't like this. Did the first two marine levels. I can't pin down what it is about the level design and the way you move that bugs me so much, but I don't like it. When you vote One Nation out. My language has been murdered.

Brahma Force - Since I kind of WAS in the mood for an arcadey FPS, I decided to play this instead! So out of all the PSX FPSes I've played, this is easily the smoothest. The platforming feels /good/ in it because you can look down while jumping, the movement speed is very tight, and you have a bit of a jetpack so you can float a little if necessary. Level design's interesting so far -- small and open, but it's not necessarily clear how to get to the exit from the start. Also it rewards exploration with powerups, and you need to find ways to jump up to some of them to get them.

IDK its sort of like Jumping Flash meets Machine Head but with tighter controls, and very not like Kileak or Epidemic.

D2 - Went to the crash site and got the key for the stone hut. I can see why this was critically panned when it came out but I honestly think it's a lot of fun.


--- edit ---

New Leaf - Got an /aircheck/ from KK Slider. Un-decorated my Halloween stuff. Not really sure what I want my house to look like -- I was going with the modern set, which I do like, but Savannah already has that going on, and I really like the look of the musroom, spooky, and cabin sets mixed together so... Imma pay off my loan and expand tomorrow. Got the /lewd statue/ from Redd. Also I need trash cans super badly :T

Apropos to nothing (aside, perhaps, from my recent Artdink infatuation), I would really like a city builder game where you can only influence the city indirectly.

Animal Crossing - Punkin' F!@#ker won't give me the ghost mask >:T

Also my shirt got wrecked so I should go get a new one before T&T closes for awhile.

-- reordered my shirt, got the jack in the box, and the two remaining pieces of spooky furniture I wanted. Seasonal inappropriateness aside I'm tempted to use it all year round because I fucking love pumpkins.

D2 - Obnoxious tank controls notwithstanding, this is pretty neat! And combat's basically, uh, very lightgun-y so the tank controls don't actually matter.

Finally got around to playing Illbleed. What the hell :DDD This actually reminds me of Shivers for... some reason, which is weird because Illbleed's essentially Blue Stinger 2 and Shivers was Myst clones. Anyway Illbleed's legits creepy in spite of being /intentionally/ campy because of how screwed up everything looks.

Man I also have D2 and Code Veronica I could be playing wrt /horror games for the season/.

ACNL - Made a token effort at decorating my room for halloween :D

VC's on GMG now. You can preorder for 18. and there's a coupon that knocks it down to 15.

Not entirely sure my system can run it but imma get it and hope for the best.

I bought my PS3 for VC, no joke.  I'm not sure how Yggdrasil became the arbiter of why people buy consoles...

I didn't said everyone, you said everyone. I said most people. There's a difference.


There were a number of PS3 exclusives I wanted to get a PS3 for. Under Defeat got a US release on the 360 a few weeks ago, and VC is coming to steam now.

I... mean I literally have fewer reasons to get a PS3 now than I did earlier.
