The thing with Zelda 1 is that it didn't have any puzzles. You had some really light bits where you needed a key item to access wherever but the dungeons were entirely about figuring out how to navigate them, as is, and figuring out how to clear all the enemies in a room without taking any hits using the limited means provided to you.

What if the show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy was actually about a disembodied floating eyeball that wold follow the straight guy of the week and just whisper stuff at them like HEY YOU SHOULD MAKE OUT WITH DUDES. MAKING OUT WITH DUDES IS SUPER GREAT.

And the show was just about the straight guy tryna pick up a dude but the dude he was tryna pick up always got freaked out by the floating eyball.



"Goshdangit Queer Eye, now I'll never pick up a dude. AND THE PROM'S TOMORROW!"

So I went back to my old college town today.
Weirddamn memories.
Vague nostalgia for a place I used to live but mixed with the awareness that I never liked living there.
And the real stab's just that it's a part of my life that's not a part of my life anymore -- something done and distanced from myself. So, rmething that was a part of me and defined me that's now just relegated to half-remembered upwellings in dreams I get when I sleep too much.

The most confusing part is trying to remember what I cared about back then or my mental state in general because I didn't have any obsession riding my mind to the point of psychosis (prior to 2009 at least, where I was completely death obsessed). I'm not cognizant of what my internal monologues were like back then, or even what they would've been like, and this gap in memory is why I have a hard time reconciling that who I was between 2006 and 2010 and who I am now are not in fact different people.

... Stop making me want to move.

... Actually I've got about six years combined experience between German and Swedish so I could probably pick up Dutch without too much trouble. I wonder if my soul-crushing megacorp has any offices over there..................

I think the biggest irony is that this involves Kotaku so it's like, it's fucking Kotaku, when has ANYONE taken Kotaku seriously?

Basically I'm miserable and dysfunctional without caffeine.

But then I get caffeine and everything's fine.

I'm a drug addict.

- USG: I used to have a link to a bunch of Youtube tutorials on how to actually play the game, but I seem to have misplaced it. It might be in the Youtube thread but I'm too lazy to bother checking.

Just give everyone axes until you spark reverse delta and then use reverse delta on everything, basically. Magic and unarmed are useful if you want to go that route. And make sure all your armor has Life Protection (it usually grows this if you have it equipped for awhile).

wrt SGF1 just try to kill the bosses as quickly as possible, however possible. They tend to have really bad attacks that trigger after a few turns, so don't go for drawn out slogs. SGF1's not really that hard unless you're playing extensively with monsters in which case it's really hard. And Lute's quest is basically sandbox mode.

WRT DQ7, it's a game I like a lot but it's better in small doses, and it's pretty episodic so it kind of works towards this anyway.

Also what's the missable plot item in the Deja Tribe dungeon thing?

--- edit ---

I forgot if I mentioned this here, because my mind's sort of fried and I can't remember jack shit right now, but this is a problem I've been having with gaming in general lately.

Been playing a lot of shmups recently, and some of the advice for getting better I see is that you should go watch replays of really good players playing the game, and try to repeat what they do.

Which makes me think that shmups are just... solved problems, and the entire gameplay experience there is trying to adhere to a gold standard as closely as possible, and being graded on how close you made it to that standard.

That's also what I got out of Trails in the Sky, though -- the game's quests told you exactly what to do, you'd do it, and... it just felt very tasky and homeworkish.

http://www.gog.com/game/cosmos_cosmic_adventure I sort of want this but I doubt it holds up well :T Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure is pretty much the first PC game I recall playing though.

I read it as satire. Although, since I'm not Mesh, I can't confirm if that was the feeling he wished to convey.

1. Arnita Sarkassian/Zoe Deschenal-gate or whatever this is is ultimately pretty unimportant and everyone's going to forget about it in a month anyway.

2. If the video game industry fell apart, what would we really be out on? Gaming's supposed to be entertainment but all I'm seeing here is commoditization, pretension, and an unending source of flashpoints for bitchiness. It's not fun anymore and I just want to go home.

GAMING IS SERIOUS BUSINESS meanwhile large swaths of Asia and Africa are fucked as fucked right now but nevermind that.

Seriously if the gaming industry ended /right now/ would it really be a bad thing? I think the world has enough games. Who here DOESN'T have a massive backlog?

The amount of unnecessary death and suffering going on in the world this summer's kind of getting to me a lot.

What if Hewlett-Packard Lovecraft was Batman?

Anyway I guess I'm supposed to give some facetious-ass response here cause that's my gig so uh

JAPAN, FROM SHENMUE

Serious answer though would probably Onett, from whatever game that was from. It actually felt like a place to me and not just a thing you briefly stepped by to start your adventure after your parents watched them get killed.

Of course what I remember about it is being in fourth grade and renting the game and having a hard time with the first two bosses, and it felt huge to me for that -- there's a boss before you get to the town's outskirts, and a boss before you can leave the town proper, and the place is developed/has details that make it feel real -- there's goddamn road traffic in Earthbound!

More importantly though it actually felt homey. Maybe more like home than my real home, 'cause I grew up in a geriatric neighborhood without sidewalks or anything to do outside and whoops I feel sad now.

so viet
much union
wow
