Wait I thought the Dragoon Arc DID give you the mana tree artifact and opened up the end game? or at least triggers the thing at your house that does?

2016 is everyone has a power drill pointed at somebody's head and a power drill pointed at their own head and is walking forward slowly.

And Donald Trump's a slow ride in the back of a car on the hottest day of the year up to a house in the mountains, the bunker underneath from which you know you'll never be returning.

a literal goddamn mangA LITERAL GODDAMN MANGOSTEEN!?!??

new waifu.

Also I like how BEARISCOMING has a psychic fist attack. That is very normal.


Okay so Bewear went from being the stupidest thing I ever saw to my favorite thing in like the space of a week, also is it just me or is it basically SCP-173 (only a bear, and not a statue with a green wiener?)

New Vegas - Up to Freeside. Explored Repconn HQ a bit. Died a lot. Iiiii'll come back there later. anyway, did the first bit of GI Blues, which tends to be problematic with Freeside Open. Orris seemed to glitch out the first time, or I might've gotten too far behind him, but it worked fine after that, so. Having never gone to Freeside the non-sequence breaky way through the Deathclaw funtimes, I missed a lot of neat details outside of New Vegas itself.

I was sort of hoping the RNC would be the explosive trainwreck it looked like it had the potential to be but so far it's more like watching those ketchup robots, if those ketchup robots were like, white supremacists.

-- btw! --

also are there any pokestops at the RNC?

Boku no Natsuyasumi 2 - Irony of playing a /summer vacation simulator/ in the middle of July notwithstanding (shut up, I went to the BMV today. It's hot out >8Y)... Did day 2, which started with... someone launching fireworks. Caught butterflies. Discovered that you don't have to murder them to add them to your collection book (although that seems to be an option). Got fishing equipment. Found another /dinosaur/ bottle cap (I have two. I thought had three? Maybe there are non-unique ones idk). Gave Dr. Ostensibly Colonel Sanders a neck massage? Uhhhh...

Anyway, went looking for fireflies in the playground area after dark and the Cool Girl that lives in the weird planetarium house with Dr. Colonel Sanders was playing !@#%ing Erik Satie music.

So in summary my actual life is less interesting that virtual life in a Japanese children's videogame because instead of getting serendipitous Gymnopedie No. 1 while finding lovely insects, I just get serendipitous mugged while finding millions of dead raccoons.

-- edit --

Panzer Dragoon Zwei - Okay so there's a pretty noticable disparity in difficulty between the hard routes and easy routes in this so, having discovered that, I got up to Chapter 4! Panzer Dragoon's visual style is nuts. I love it.

ya so I burned my hand making coffee cause I like overshot the french press with the hot water and hit my hand instead.

it was an adequate experience

at 3 in the morning>?

You say that as if that isn't prime coffee and absinthe hours for Mesh.

fwiw the burning happened around noon, I just forgot about it by binge Fallouting to take my mind off of it and only remembered when, upon gingerly brushing the backs of my ring and index figure against some rough husk of one of the many fine fruits adorning my apartment, was immediately revisited by the MULLIGAN I touched something on my desk and it was like gosh howdy that still hurts.

and fwwiw never have I ever /drank/ absinthe but now I'm hungry for the Vivaldi-inspired absinthe ice cream that Jeni's has rarely.

If you mess with the hitstun behavior in LoM such that the player can still be stunned but enemies/AI buddies can't be, the AI on both sides puts up a better fight. Likewise if you make the enemy/AI characters move faster and the player move slower, since you can't avoid attacks as easily and enemies don't... constantly retarget once they get within a certain range of the player. Although really it is -- I guess like Nier -- one of those games you play more for the story/atmosphere/experience.

FONV - Ditched Veronica, grabbed Boone, hit level 10. Found a bunch of map things. Probably up to like 25 star caps now? Did the first set of things in Searchlight. Got another quest going on there now. Also there's an airport? next to it that I didn't explore. Might go do Freeside next and pick up doggy though.

i like this game a lot ._.

i've been eating a lot more cactus fruit irl since i started playing this .______.

i need to force myself to take a break .__________. what the hell else was in my backlog? Everblue 2? Ultima 5? Boku no Natsuyasumi 2? i don't even remember.

Panzer Dragoon Zwei - I am very bad at Zwei and still can't get past level 3.

the red pandabear thing hugs things to death if you look at the magazine article
maybe you guys should stop saying it looks boring before it hears you

Also from before, http://www.pokemon-sunmoon.com/media/uploads/july_01_assets/screenshots/stoutland.jpg got me thinking... what if Pokemon went full-on Xenoblade?

the Cuyahoga's the river that caught on fire. it's in cleveland. re recent events there's probably things you could say about that but i'll leave them unsaid.

it's also noticeable for mike mills not pronouncing it right /at all/. The contents of this song are also interesting re recent events for reasons that i'll also leave unsaid.

more locally, the rivers don't burn. The Scioto's had like... several bodies found in it this year, which is DANDY. Olentangy -- the one I'm by -- has been alrightish lately. They're kind of reshaping it to make it more, uh, hospitable to aquatic life. I think our major water problem is high nitrates in the southern half of the city, and where I am/Dublin, the reservoirs do this thing every few years where the water layers, uh, flip, and you get... algae growing in it that renders the water ultimately harmless but undrinkably bad tasting for months on end.

also maybe this is just cause i was out of milk and had to make my dinner oatmeal with tonic water instead and i'm just hallucinating from that but like
okay why did i completely forget that in the Disney Peter Pan movies, the children were raised by a semi-anthropomorphic dog who from screencaps apparently served them liquor or something
and then that dog had a daughter in the sequel who like ran packages during the london blitz during wwii

the latter you can pass off as just an example of like aughts disney weird but
anyway now i'm just finding horrifying fursuits from stage productions of peter pan. i should probably have gone to bed like two hours ago. nothing good is happening now.

@Klyde: Not to ruin your life but there are also six demi-human pets which are, for all intents and purposes, more like secret characters than pets. I have no idea how to trigger them consistently.


MMR - Beat Dr. Rafflesia. Explored Port Slum. Found the locker hacker. Doing this let me get Cloe, so up to three characters. Found an ID Card in the abandoned hospital. Port Slum lets you sell broken protectors and buy healing drinks, along with some other drugs I might check out. Healing drinks should make taking down Mad Muscle more doable, and should also net me an ambulance for Cloe. Bunch of tank customization options opened up too. Also explored the town of Freeza a bit. It's sort of like the underground town from Metal Saga, but frozen, which makes me happy.

Also found out that you can map "party board/exit tank" and the mine detector to buttons, which is making things a lot more convenient.

Oh and there's some cave that leads to a shinto shrine outside of Freeza that I need to explore properly after I get a tank for Cloe.

I have a few issues with this, especially relating to damage calculations being weird, but overall enjoying this a loooooooooooooot so far.

-- edit --

Okay. Beat Mad Muscle. It took a few tries until I figured out that

A) his attacks ignore defense completely
B) grenade-type items hit 100% of the time
C) Barriers totally negate one hit and then break, each character can carry up to 7 instead of normal armor, and you can swap the broken ones for non-broken ones in combat.

So now i have a van/ambulance for Cloe. By default it can't do much but I can modify its chassis to take weapons. So that I shall do!

The ocean smells like raw death afaic.

I live next to a river and it's pretty bad in the summer 'cause algae and like rotting... river beasts, but the ocean's like that times infinity.

Florida's especially bad though cause the citrus industry, so you have like, orange rendering plants near the ocean. So imagine the smell of baking Tropicana intermingling with rotting fish/algae and sand gross. And then it's July so you've already got a migraine from the heat and light, and the olfactory hypersensitivity that comes along with that.
