So wrt what you were saying about how CT was about actions and CC was about consequences -- never thought about it that way but Leena's last line's a cool way of bringing that /full circle/, with new potentials arising from consequences that get dealt with.

Also I feel like Schala's final speech was also a refutation to like, this theme running through both games about how humans were just a /food source/ for Lavos, rendered the Reptites/Mystics/Demihumans totes preterite on top of that, and then the thing in CC where it's implied that Serge's existence made the events in CT completely irrelevant. (This is also why I thought her additional dialogue in CT: DS made /no/ sense. She's like saying the opposite conclusion there).

(Also think the story's initial nihilistic leanings are why it can be really offputting if you're a fan of CT, 'cause it starts off looking like it's setting out do destroy everything CT established, even though it doesn't really, or not permanently in any case.)

I'm probably also going to try Legend of Heroes, but I really don't know much about this series. If someone could give a quick rundown it would be appreciated. The combat seems quite meh, but I kind of need something with a Falcom feel. I just worry it'll end up like Golden Sun, which I enjoyed quite a bit, but then just kind of forgot to ever play the sequel.

I played like thirty hours of the first game and nothing really happened in it so you could maybe just skip to the second one whenever that gets released.

GTA3 - Finished up one of the phone mission lines on Portland and got about three or four hidden packages. Might take a break from this, though -- while a lot of it still holds up really favorably in light of the later games and it has a really cool atmosphere, the way gangs work is kind of getting on my neeerves.-- they get super aggressive as you complete story missions.

7KnSM - Started chapter 4. OH MY GOD HYUU IS ADORABLE. More games need dapper skeleton crows that bite your face as a form of greeting.

1. Had risotto for lunch. It had, uh, pelargonium leaves and snapdragon? flowers in it.

2. Went to Gallery Hop. There was a BLACK LIVES MATTER protest going on. There were fursuiters involved.

3. Had dinner at some ostensibly gay bar. Some dude started talking to me and I was like UUUUH DON'T TALK TO ME I DON'T LIKE PEOPLE.

--- edit ---

4. Went to lunch at Aladdin's Eatery on Sunday. Manager came up and started asking me how the food was and I was like UUUUUH DON'T TALK TO ME I DON'T LIKE PEOPLE.

Spoilers:

Code:
ONE TIME I BOUGHT A USED COPY OF CHRONO CROSS FROM THIS WEIRD FLEA MARKET AND WHEN I DID THE THING AT THE BEACH I DID IT BACKWARDS AND THEN THERE WAS PHOTOREALISTIC BLOOD AND I SAW MY GIRLFRIEND FROM WHEN I WAS 12 (SHE KILLED HERSELF FOR NO APPARENT REASON BUT IT WAS ACTUALLY DEMONS).

CNN's also got its share of total nozzles that I'm surprised Anderson Cooper hasn't straight up murdered yet. cough cough Lemon and Blitzer cough.

idk if Geraldo's even actively douchey at this point, he's just like yr. vaguely senile grandpa/uncle that shows up at Bob Evans and whines about gay Muslims stealing his tax dollars until hapless college student waitress shows up and gives him his orange juice. Geraldo fucking loves orange juice. Geraldo ain't sharing his orange juice with any gay Muslims.

I don't know why I ain't got a stamp on my V-card, I mean shit dawg I got so much game bitches call me Software|Etc!

... Ahem.

I don't consider myself asexual but like I don't really dig the idea of physical or emotional intimacy.

That reminds me though, there was like a 20 minute conversation going on in my office about Brazilian prostitution today. Highlights were married coworkers saying they needed girlfriends and manager saying he got mistaken for a gay prostitute once.

@Dice: That adventure time gifset... perfectly captures how I reacted when my dogs died.

@Dincrest: Chitlin Kiss needs to be a band name. A lot

Anyway, need to stop drinking Starbucks coffee. It's got way more caffeine than I'm used to. Like coffee usually doesn't bug me but this is like, giving me that unpleasant feeling when you come down from a caffeine high and all of your muscles are just randomly discharging.

http://www.10tv.com/content/stories/2015/05/01/columbus-ohio-large-fire-on-southside-of-columbus.html Also this is... creating a goddamn unnerving cloud of smoke over the downtown right now.

GTA3 - Did some vigilante-ing and got the uh, first police bribe unlocked. Vigilante missions are really fun once you get used to cutting cars off. Also failed repeatedly at a rampage involving grenades. Because grenades.

Definitely feel that Vice City and San Andreas are better games, but GTA3's got its own unique things/atmosphere.

Beyond that I forgot what the heck else I was playing. Feel like I should get back to Chibi-robo maybe, although it's suddenly verdant as hell out which is making me remember JRPGs exist.

And at that I sort of want to get the PC version of Ys VI. It's prettier than the PS2 version :<

For people to calm down, it's... going to mean that peaceful protests need to matter, instead of just being a way of getting ignored. It's not like people haven't tried /not/ rioting. All things considered this has been a pretty gradual build-up over the space of two years.

It begins....

I guess its up to those delving head first into the streams to tell us who these clowns are and why should we be paying extra for them.

Okay, after a bajillion tries, I finally got past Chester, and now I'm stuck on the dragon boss in the Lava cave. It's one of those times where I always get close, but never quite make it...I had him at 97 health one time, but he's so hard to safely hit when he's just a head. :( Maybe I'll look it up on Youtube again. Or maybe I should've lowered the difficulty a little...this really is a pain in the neck. This game is fun and the dungeons and stuff are interesting, but holy crap, every single boss is balls-to-the-wall hard...

1. Are you keeping your equipment updated? iirc that matters a lot.

2. Make sure you're exploring and not missing any important powerup items.

3. What difficulty are you on?

Oh my gooooood.....

Xenoblade: High Entia CHILDREN are 40 years old... even with an expanded lifespan, I can't think of taking care of an infant for over 10 years let alone what follows with childhood...

It could be a Noppon, where they live for a long time and are children for /all of it/.

Terrifying, murderous children.

-- edit --

Played some classic GTA 3. Did some missions for the italian dude. I miss how cartoony and weirdly innocent the GTA3-based ones were, compared to V :(

UFO - So yeah, at one point you hear gunshots and a siren going off, and at another part a cat starts /freaking the hell out/ out of nowhere.

Shadow Tower - Went back and repaired stuff. Going back to the start of the tower via teleport then walking back to the end of the earth region takes about five? ten? minutes if you're just traveling without fighting.

Also the Fiery Helm acts like a torch which is nice.

GTA:SA/GTA3 - Did one mission a piece in these. idk why I enjoy these more than GTAV -- it's not just that GTAV's story made me feel gross, idk it just lack a certain /pick up and play/ quality. The huge initial load time doesn't help.

I need to get around to playing G-Police and LAPD Future Cops sometime. G-Police has a very similar aesthetic to GTA3. Also need to get back to Chibi-robo this weekend.
