@ glassjawsh: Just stop doing sidequests and progress the story. There's only a small number of them with a time limit, and you don't reach those for awhile (and the ones with time limits actually develop characters. They're also clearly marked as having a time limit). It's entirely possible to spend ten hours on the game without actually starting the story /at all/, but that doesn't necessarily mean you should.

That's not even hyperbole. You seriously get 20 minutes of story before the game lets you just fuck around for a /long/ time.

When shit happens, you'll notice. Fiora leaves the party temporarily to take care of her injured brother, and the story really kicks off when it's just Reyn and Shulk. So if Fiora's still in your party you're not there yet.

Anyway.

Suikoden 3 - You know my head's saying the bit where everyone unites at Budehuc Castle is kind of dorky, but like, screw it I love it and it's making me ridiculously happy.

Fireem Blehm: al-Wakeeng: Did some early mission in this (basically I've been in bed a lot cause herpderp freezing herp derp no heat herp derp need a 3DS game that doesn't require manual dexterity till my gripper thingy gets here) and then started Paralogue 1.

Shmups - Hit a plateau in Espgaluda 2. Think I might go back to Mushihimesama Futari. Was gonna save that for later, but... guess I could go back to Daifukkatsu maybe?

First real day of vacation is tomorrow.

I'm already bored and feeling paranoid.

Man I honestly think VP kind of blows on anything less than Hard mode. Hard mode like has you actually using the mechanics and doing all this cool timing stuff and it's amazing.

Normal/easy mode is just like pass out on the controller and win instantly.

This is why I didn't actually like VP until I was in college -- I was in 7th grade when it came out and just tended to put everything on easy cause I was bad at the vidya

The basics of the True A requirement's to when the game tells you do, you instead dother.

Okay, the point about not making fun of people is a good one, because you shouldn't make fun of people, I've never really been a fan of liking yourself for who you are, no matter what.

I get that you shouldn't feel bad about things about yourself that you can't change, but...

- Obesity is a major problem and if it's just the result of a lifestyle choice, then no, I don't think it's something we should accept.

- What if someone's overweight but not to the point where it's unhealthy? Then it's up to them.

Here's the thing with that. If you're overweight but still healthy, and you don't really want to be thinner, that's totally fine. But what if you aren't happy with how you look? I don't think there's anything with wrong with wanting to change that either.

I guess what I'm saying is that if there's something you don't like about yourself and you can safely change it, why accept it? There's a fine line between acceptance and resignation in this case, and resignation's a terrible thing.

--- edit ---

6AM. Too much coffee to sleep.

Also it's 5AM.

... Wasn't it daylight savings?

Anyway just sitting in bed 'cause it's too cold to be anywhere else (TURN THE HEAT ON MGMT FFFFF) and not playing games cause my laptop will overheat.

At one point I made a blanket fort and used my laptop to heat it.

Suikoden 3 - In Chapter 4, picked Hugo as The Big Guy. I keep wanting Hugo and Sgt. Joe to make out even though I realize that would look ridiculous.

Also oh god end of Brass Castle battle ahhhhhhhhhhh :DDDDDDD

Espgaluda 2 - Getting sort of better at dodging through the late-stage stuff in level 2. Managed to get a new high score last night, albeit still a very poor one.

Also I feel like playing Shadow Hearts: Covenant. I got it for my birthday ten years ago and then never played it because SMT: Nocturne came out like a week later and I played nothing else but SMT:N for months.


---

Eschatos - My hands are basically freezing because my apartment doesn't turn the heat on for a few more days and it's unseasonably cold for early October, so I'm having a hard time doing anything shmuppy. That being said, I really need to figure out the scoring mechanics in Advanced Mode.

Also I thiiiink the missiles in the first couple sequences aren't totally random and are sort of aimed, so if you move around more it's hard to get them all?

Saints Row 2 - Did the first Samedi mission. Man I love the city in this -- it's a lot more detailed than the GTA games, especially wrt the interiors.

re: Suikoden 3 - So the thing with Geddoe and Sana was a translation error although the text it should have been is still kind of weird without context. Anyway the page I found talking about the translation errors though was kind of obnoxious because it spent way too much time complaining about how like, The Flame Champion and Fire Bringer didn't match what was in Suikoden 2's translation. But screw that, Suik 2's translation was jacked up.

It's been hail storming for the last like hour so I can't go get vegan poptarts or McPies.

I need a grownup :(

Also it's cold and they don't turn the heat on in my apartment for like another week.

Oh welpers at least I figured out which song that /goddamn horn riff/ I've had stuck in my head for the past two days was. Now I can get on with my life.

Honest question: Does ANYONE ever bother cooking poptarts?

I want vegan poptarts.

It's raining outside so I can't go get vegan poptarts.

Help.

Some toss-up between U2 - Sunday Bloody Sunday (Dang, that dissonance!), Fleetwod Mac - Over and Over (This brings back a lot of weird and conflicting memories), and Iron and Wine - The Trapeze Swinger (This brings back even more weirder and conflictinger memories).

Also lords mcgords Neil Diamond is dilfy.

,,, Also dang this Daifukkatsu arrange album is great. Glad I got the Deluxe Edition.

I was playing Wario 2 on the 3DS last night and I discovered two things:

1. I like Wario 3 a loooooooooooot more.

2. Can someone plz recommend me a grip for the 3DSXL omg hands :((((

I was one of the jerks that totally suggested Vesperia to Mesh here (I still feel bad about that by the way, Mesh).

It's okay :DDDDDDDD Basically re: I have a shitload of money so it doesn't matter.

@natros, though. In ToV, if you ever hit a point where you get a long cutscene or a bossfight, put the game on easy until whenever the next save point is.

@Aeolus:

http://www.gamestop.com/wii/games/xenoblade-chronicles-gamestop-exclusive/98535

Xenobalde price dropped back to a normal range last December.

After, you know, everyone was already roped into paying stupid amounts for it.

Man heck naw when I was younger I was a total douchenozzle and now I'm just /elegantly curmudgeonly/.

Started Tales of Vesperia for the first time ever yesterday. Man, it felt like stepping into some old shoes, in that I haven't played a solid JRPG in years. 'Twas all I played in the 90s.
I'm loving the graphics/designs, and the music is fantastic. I didn't get very far, as I had limited time to play. I'm only at the point right after you meet El.. Elissessseese(whatever her name is), and fight that nutty rust/blonde haired dude (ain't I great with names?).  I like Yuri so far. Seems to be a sensible fellow. LOVE Repede. I read that Flynn is unplayable in this (Xbox) version. Hopefully I'm not missing out on an awesome fighter.
The game's opening looks like the game contains plenty of typical anime characters.. I guess time will tell on that one. As with most Tales games, combat is a blast. I'm looking forward to sinking hours into this one.
Had to get reacquainted with the static camera and save points. I've gotten so used to (spoiled by) the "freedom" of western RPGs.

That was also my initial response to Vesperia!

... After about ten hours I gave up and it's pretty solidly in my bottom five JRPGs, and also damn near killed my interest in the genre.

It's also the reason why I went with a 360 over a PS3, so I was pretty miffed for a bit, until I discovered Qute and Cave.
