Secret of Mana, the game, totally ruins a good soundtrack.

Not because the game is bad but because if you do anything in the game it freaks out and starts dropping bits of music.

... Calling it now: iPants is going to be a thing.

That reminds me though, I totally wrecked my legs in my sleep last night. Like I had a weird dream or something, started flexing them incorrectly and got these /really bad crazy painful/ muscle spasms in my calves and they still hurt. Honestly though it seems like the vast majority of the time I hurt myself, it's in my sleep.

wrt regards to trends coming back, I feel like a lot of the stuff from the aughts never left. Like when I worked next to a mall, I'd go over there and walk laps on my lunch break and everything there still felt very 2004ish.

The one thing I DON'T see is that men's hair style where you cut your hair short, kind of spike/slick upwards whatever bangs you have left, and then frost it. I don't see frosted hair much in general, either.

Possibly for reasons.

(Oh also I heard my throat cause I choked on a glob of nata de coco in some papaya bubble tea I was drinking at North Market while waiting for the rain to stop. I'M AN ADULT I AM GOOD AT ADULT THINGS LIKE NOT HURTING MYSELF IN STUPID WAYS).

iirc SoA's battle system is the slowest at the start because you don't really get any good crowd control options till at least past the first ruin dungeon thingy. Also I think you can... unlock a non-good skill instead of a good skill at that point to? You have Grandia-like skill eggs, right?

Ginga Force - Beat level 4 on Easy and played 5 for a bit. Starting to get the feel for this. It's really apparent now that Easy's basically Normal, with real Normal basically being New Game+. Not really sure how the scoring works. I'm wondering if taking fewer lives into a level gives you a bonus?

Mushihimesama Futari - Just credit fed through this. Forgot how cool the last stage music was.

Devil Children Black Book - Figured I'd play through this cause I have en English script I could refer to if I get stuck. script was for the GBC version and idk if the text in that was different from the PSX version or if the script as just wrong, but it's not really matching. Anyway, only at the beginning parts right now. In the Ice Land prison. Forgot how weird Hairy Frost looked in this.

Her pose is weird. Her hips want to go right but her boobs want to go left. Is her spine a noodle?

OH MY GOSH TOMARA noodle spine is a serious condition affecting millions of animes and they are very sensitive about their condition how could you be so cruel :((((

... I wonder if Orfellia and Alestia might be DLC packs or something. They sound like they could be character or continent names. That's be swell of them.

(... I should replay Eternia for that matter. I remember liking it and the characters not having that dingus-y quality that a lot of Tales characters have. Probably because a lot of the really dingusy moments were relegated to the skits that weren't in the US version. Like, normal game dialogue, they're totally reasonable and sane young adults, and then I was watching this /subbed skit/ video on youtube and it's just everyone jumping around and shouting about underwear.

Although I'm of the mindset that less-is-more can be a good approach to dialogue in general. I think my problem with tales skits in particular is that they're really separate from what you're doing in the game. So unlike FFIX's or SO2's people be off doin they thang events, it was just like, TEXT HAPPENING OUT OF NOWHERE).

I didn't like SoA when I first played it but I liked it when I played it later. It's more about the exploration and stuff -- the battle system's just kind of there -- although it doesn't really open up properly till after the second dungeon I think?

Ys 2 - I was half awake when I played this but I opened the demon gate :S

Ginga Force - Beat level 3. Apparently you're supposed to play through it on Easy before doing normal so you don't have to grind for lives.

Weird Math Shit - Found some issue with the way I was searching for pointers in Lunatic Dawn last night, because sometimes a pointer ends up being identical to code and you can't tell this without running a trace on things. And then today at work we were talking about coming up with unique identifiers for data. Like an hour long argument about unique identifiers. My mind hurts.


Also I'm really in the mood for a JRPG but I can't really think which I want to play. I'm setting on the first two Devil Summoners but I'm not really in the mood for hardcore dungeon crawler stuff right now. Could go back to ChoroQ and Yakuza 2 but, while they're Japanese an RPGs they're not /JRPGs/. idk maybe I could get back to finishing off the last chapter in Suikoden 3, or do something with Atelier Iris.

Mickey reminds me I wanted to play Epic Yarn sometime. Wargh.

One time my sink barfed out gunge on its own when I was at work one day. I have no idea what happened, I just got home and there was grayish brown stuff all over the walls.

I've probably mentioned this before, but do you know how people online always say that you should peel a monkey from the bottom instead of by breaking the stem back? I've never really agreed with this approach -- if you can't get the stem to break, it's probably because the banana's not ripe yet.

also d that was a ghost, ur haunt now

Ys 2 - Played up to Ramia Village. THE SONG HERE IS NICE. I still wish the game had the option to turn of diagonal attacking since it makes things a bit easier than they need to be for regular enemies.

Powerslave - Finished off the Karnak stuff I guess? Last major level I beat prior to that was the one that gave me the water breathing face thing. Forgot how nice this game felt.

... I don't really feel like playing Nanatsu Kaze or Endonesia during the week because... they're happy and I don't want my job to taint them :S

Before you knock libertarianism I think you should at least try to get past Ron Paul's Knee.

Burnout Paradise - 4 wins away from a B license. Even though all cars came unlocked with my purchase of the game, I'm still sticking to what would normally be available at that particular point. Thankfully, some of the better cars are now starting to fit in that criteria. Fun stuff.

Unlocking stuff was fun in BP since you didn't get it immediately and had to hunt the cars down :T Cheat DLC sucks, especially when it makes a game mechanic /stop existing/.

Anyway, just screwing around in Eschatos and Trizeal, and, uh, learned the purple wind properly in Nanatsu Kaze.

What if Tales of Berseria: Orfellia Alestia is just the full title?

also I keep imagining that "Berseria? Orfellia aLESTia!" is some deeply bawdy joke in a deeply impenetrable British accent.

Cowboy Bebop got too depressing for me to want to watch it again. Outlaw Star's only really :( moment was Cats, Girls, and Spaceships.

... Granted I haven't had cable since I was 22, which was the last time I remember CB being on AS as well, and things were going on in my life at that point so yeah.

Star Ocean 3 doesn't count because it doesn't have a chair also I sw

My least favorite thing in an RPG is when it either doesn't give you any magical restoratives or makes them rare and also makes magic really costly relative to your MP stock, effectively rendering magic useless.

I like how earthbound had the magic butterflies. In combat restoratives were rare which was fine, but you were never really left high without a paddle for getting your MP back.

It's more like stuff like Phantasy Star 2 where you didn't even really have bosses for which to hoard your magic.

What was that really garbage WITCH knockoff that was on around the same time? WINX or something?

Despite Jude going through puberty and his adult body gaining some control over the hormones...

The way you wrote that makes me think of some sort of Emeralda scene where he magically is bestowed with an adult body. This being Tales, that... sounds possible.
