Did you get to the subway key puzzle yet?

--- edit ---

Fragile Memories: Dreams of the Moon - Somewhere in the mall? Just got the cat toy. Not sure what cats are for. Not sure what cats are for in the game, either. Heard that weapon breakage gets to be a problem later so I'm stocking up on weapons. Does Egoraptor voice the chicken dude?

Also wow, Rockstar just pushed a mandatory patch for GTA:SA on steam that takes songs out and lowers the max resolution. Also possibly broke keyboard and mouse support for multicore CPUs and support for old saves. HRRRRRrr.

Shit like that is why I'm annoyed that everything's gone digital these days.

Anyway, I think the biggest problem with Chrono Cross is that they tried to make it the sequel to the greatest RPG ever but in the end it felt NOTHING like Soulblazer.

First of all, it went back to the problem of the first where upon clearing a room, more enemies would show up out of nowhere. Sometimes this would happen 2 or 3 times in a row which is enough to feel like that part of the game is never going to end.

Oh god that killed Phantasy Star Online for me. Not so much having to kill everything in a room to progress but that they'd keep spawning in. Marathon also got kind of goofy with that at points. Like I get why having enemies respawn can make parts where you have to backtrack more interesting but like, the endless waves just makes things tedious, as did the way Marathon handled ambushes.

ACNL - I'm not super in-love with the Harvest series but some of it goes well with the Mushroom and Spooky sets. And I still need a trash can >:T Also need to start messing with public works and custom designs ffffffff.

Probably go play more Fragile Dreams when Automatic for the People's over.

Watching Haibane Renmei. This show makes me feel weird :( It's reminding me of 2009.

Think I'm used to DST a little now?

Also I'm supposed to test something but I've not gotten the new build of our project yet so I can't :T

-- edit --

Thing dropped right as I posted that. HAH.

--- edit 2 ---

Nevermind, just my test lead telling me the build was delayed, that we're testing it tomorrow instead, and that I could... go to bed?

Dude it's not even 8PM wt hecks :D

The thing with life is like, when you're in your twenties and feelin' useless, you compare yourself to John Lennon and you're like dang John Lennon was was way more talented at this point his his life than I am.

But then you turn 41 and you're all like, dang I'm a lot better at not being dead than John Lennon ever was.

1. RPGamer.com <---- a poor imitation of the fanner.

Playing small amounts of Under Defeat and ACNL. More ACNL, since mushrooms. Accidentally opened someone's time capsule :( WRT I played around with one of the other ships, which doesn't have option pods and just uses the pickups as normal powerups. I'm not really sure if I'm enjoying this or not.

Not really in the mood to move stuff off of my couch so I'm... not playing anything Wii-related right now. Mostly DVD cases, pumpkin brittle, and jack fruit chips.

I have a list of stuff I was trying to actively play in Notepad because I'm tending to forget, otherwise. It's... just got UD and ACNL in it though. Also Ookami, but again, don't feel like moving stuff off my couch.

Pearls Before Swine - Another Time

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

He's still not going to be able to do anything. This is the next two years:

... 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.

I am so sorry for everything 8D

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
