I thought you were a vegan, Mesh? Tiramisu is made with marscapone, which I'm pretty sure is anti-vegan.

Pretty fucking awesome though.

Nah just vegetarainian.

Being stalked by the number 57 right now.



Oh no i sneezed espresso dust from that tiramisu all over my keyboard. :-(

I remember liking Lunar Legend when I was younger but nowadays I look back on that and wtfffffffff. If Lunar's the Ys of games that aren't Ys, then Lunar Legend is Lagoon.

If you've ever played Shining Force 3 and Beyond the Beyond, you're gonna see a LOT of really familiar art assets.

I remember liking Startropics 2 more when I was younger because of the free movement and bigger overworlds, but in retrospect Startropics 1's grid based movement tended to work better? Also the dungeons seemed more varied in that and the pacing seemed better.

Moon - Found tomato monster's soul. Also talked to a retired? carpenter, got him to move away, got his house, and leveled up. Oh and I activated the rainbow machine. I think I'm going to go bug someone to help me with what the carpenter was sa

Shooting Love 200x - I think Trizeal has sort-of-dynamic stages. I remember playing it this morning and got some weird snake boss on level 1. Played it again this afternoon and did not. Anyway these games feel rather Quteish to me? Shmups Skill Test is very Cardinal Sin. Also these were either Dreamcast or Naomi games and Eschatos was deliberately going for that style, so'p.

Exzeal's weird in particular -- you've got four ships, one's really overpowered but doesn't seem to have much scoring potential, one is I guess the ship from XIIStag (which I never played) that gets multipliers from side attacks, and the other two have these recca-esque charge attacks that get you more points. idk I should re-watch ser flash's review I guess.

Okay nevermind the scoring's pretty straightforward.

-- edit --

Endonesia - Didn't play this but I went back through my notes and I think I know how to solve some puzzle involving monkeys and a scale so I want to uh try doing that. ffff

-- edit 2 --

Did the monkey thing. I uh... the solution I THOUGHT I had was wrong and it was a lot more straight forward, I jut wasn't paying attention. There's two god statues left in the first part of the map now, one of which hasn't given me any hints through the lamp. Also blasting the beach guy with fun didn't do anything.

--- edit 3 ---

The soul catching in Moon is actually how I'd want a Pokemon game to work.

What's that burger made of?  Beets?  

Beets, black beans, herbs, spices, and LoOoVe.

How important is it to you that a potential girlfriend/boyfriend be into gaming?

On the off chance I ever DID date someone, I'd almost rather we didn't share a TON of interests, but also be okay with doing our own thing? I feel liked that'd just lead to a lot of head-butting.

Idk I see couples always spending 100% of their time together and forcing themselves to do things they don't want to and they don't seem happy? Or even if they are happy I don't think I could force myself to be that /on/ all the time.

Most veggie burgers are cardboard

... ffffffff now I want to go there and get one.

Honestly I just dislike people in general. The hair. The way they're made of skin. The way they're full of fluid. The screeching, amplified sound of the electrical currents generated by their central nervous systems being pumped out of their ears.



As a vegetarian, I find that I really dislike other vegetarians. Then again, I obviously don't like eating anything made of meat.

I was recorded by a jerk kid at school singing that and sailor moon theme on the bus

... I remember singing the boat theme from Complete on the bus when I was 12 and this one highschool girl smacked me for singing but it's okay because she got teen pregnant.

Food cranks annoy me. I dig cold-pressed juices over heat pasteurized juices on the grounds that idk heating orange juice kind of makes it taste /really weird/. Likewise, cold pressed coconut water tastes better too, although it's like nowhere near as sensitive to heat as orange juice is. But it's like, I get the juice, and I'm looking at the bottle and it's covered in all this hippy blurk and I'm just omfg I just want nice tasting juice why am I being bombarded by this.

Similarly I was in Ann Arbor last weekend and there was a protest again GMOs going on. It's like, I'm all for protesting Monsanto's skeezy business practices centered around exploiting impoverished farmers in developing nations and using their patents for enforced vendor lock bullshit, but I don't really have any issues with making plants that are herbicide or pest resistant as a whole. Anyway then I saw someone holding a "GMO == VACCINES!" sign and my mind flipped into simpering rage mode.

It's like people be all OH NO, LABORATORIES N SHIT and forget that things like cavendish bananas, sweet corn, and edible potatoes aren't /exactly/ naturally occurring.

Goddammit I've been spelling "escrow" as "esgrow" all this time.

I need to play Sodium Mono Glutamate 2 sometime. I heard it was harder than the first and SMG1's major dips into easiness were sort of offputting to me.

Moon - Managed to get through another day of this -- talked to a bird about some stuff, got the slime soul which is impossible to not get, and uh... leveled up? Found a tree south of granny's house that has a guy that gives me love for some reason, so I'll need to go back and check that out. Also discovered that eating cookies restores your action points.

I want to wait and play this in English since I'm not really getting the nuances of the story and those are apparently a big deal here but the /mental gymnastics/ of playing it in untranslated is... I don't know, I feel more compelled to play games if I feel like I'm getting something besides entertainment out of them? That's why I was playing shmups a lot last summer/fall -- I'm terrible at them but they make you think in a way that... gave me some kind of /mental clarity?/

Chip's Challenge 2 - Maybe it picks up later but the first ten or so levels were not good :( Lots of gotcha moments, not much thinking, lots of trial and error, lots of things that aren't even puzzles. I remember Chip 1 doing this but not to the same extent.

--- edit ---

Shooting Love 200x - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQ4_mkxGCao is my new song of the moment.

That's one of the things I liked about Pokemon Conquest -- nominally you still have to "train" pokemon although it's int he framework of TBS troop training so it's just going on in the background where you do more important things. I kind of want... idk a Pokemon Snap RPG where you're still catching 'mons but yr. doing more varied things to get them catchable instead of just wailing on them. Like, Suikocross-esque sidequests or puzzles to get them to join you. Or something like the first GC one where there aren't any wild pokes to catch at all and there's an outright cap on how much you can fight.

Moon - Did some early stuff -- just the 16-bit intro, buying bread for grandma, and uh... that was it. There's supposed to be an English script coming out soonish -- might hold off on until that's out since the text in this game's a fair bit more out of my league than Nanatsu Kaze's.

Skills/knowledge alone don't make the man.


... Also does anyone else wish the new Jurassic Park movie WASN'T an action movie about dinosaurs eatin' dudes and was instead a family-friendly fake Discovery Channel-esque documentary about the day-to-day happenings at a dinosaur park :T

... Also goddammit Krogers is doing a two-for-one on Bolthouses so I had an empty bottle from yesterday on my desk and one I drank today, and I saw here was a little juice left in the one from today and I went to drink it but it turns out it was the one from yesterday augahguahguhag barfbarfbarf

Childhood challenge distortion is certainly something I've been aware of but never really acknowledged.
It's not just about reflexes or something either, it's mainly having to put up with the amount of trial and error involved.

Oh I definitely had WAY more patience for level grinding when I was younger. I used to really like BoF2, Phantasy Star 2/3, Daggerfall, Albion, etc., and was prone to grinding through games when it wasn't required because I didn't get the mechanics (See Earthbound, above.

One of the most extreme examples I can think of isn't entirely fair since it involves and emulator, but I was playing a translated ROM of Final Fantasy V (this was before there was any official English version) and there was a section where you're exploring a ship that had water in it I believe was supposed to cover like half your character sprite.  But my emulator didn't handle this part correctly and the water just covered the whole screen so you couldn't see a thing.

Oh god I had a similar issue with SD3* as Kevin, and I wasn't aware that ZSNES was glitching out and I just though the game was really goddamn stupid.

... I also thought the NES version of FF3 ended at the initial credits roll.

@ Klyde: Did you ever play the original DOS X-Com? It has nice sprite work, although I'm under the impression that it doesn't play TOO differently from the new one so you'd probably not want to double-up.

* Just since I know the internet police are watching, I own legits fuh-realsies copies of SD3 and all that other weird import stuff I've been playing lately and I will gladly show pictures of my import collection because I am /a really huge dork I mean I can't even believe this where did my life go wrong/.

... I wish I owned legit copies of Chu-Teng and LSD, but I mean there are all of four copies of the former in existence, so.
