Why the hell did you do that?

Because I was getting good enough at it to get Perfects semi regularly and using it to beat children and steal their cards because I'm a bastard.

Played Seven Kingdoms 2 a bit. It's not really as neat as I remember it being. Like, unit AI is... broken. Even in aggressive mode they don't seem to start attacking again after killing their current target unless explicitly told to. Economic system isn't that in depth. Just... yeah. I think EU3 spoiled me.

Tried play FFIX. Ended up playing Tetra Master for two hours somehow. I think I was going to do other things but I... OH right. Chrono Cross and Seven Kingdoms 2. Deedly deedly doop.

No, I think you're misreading how *I* was intentionally misreading/decontextualizing that.

I'm gonna try and get VtM: B working on my laptop. If I post again, it means my laptop didn't blow up.

??? iPod is an apple product and apple products never crash ???

Seriously though, about the bugs? Probably just low quality control standards. I saw some graphics about it somewhere once but iPod game pricing's sort of this weird bell curve between profitability/non-profitability. RPGs are lengthier in general and have lengthier dev times and thus cost more. I'm guessing QA sort of well by the wayside.

the screen is so large, I see myself being 4x more anal than I do rubbing my iPhone.


4x more anal than I do rubbing my iPhone.

"Anal," "rubbing," "iPhone," and "large" do not. ever. belong. in. the same. sentence.

Well what the hell.

After the recent stretch of games-I-used-to-love-but-then-replayed-and-hated... Lunar: TSSSC's actually GOOD. I mean, yeah, some grind's required, but I was pleasantly surprised to find out that you need to use a degree strategy even *non* boss battles, which actually includes things like static attacks. And the whole positioning/area attack element of the battle system adds even MORE strategy.

(what the fuck smells like balloons in here... grody.)

Anyway, so I did the volcano. And I liked it.

Der Jermeister:

I'll just leave this here: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/3315889

Anyway, Grandia. I like how Grandia 1 is one of the few RPGs that actually took your characters position and the notion of enemies moving around to attack you... and did something with it. Like, visually, sure SoA had your dudes takin' swipes at the other dude, but it was just visual. Grandia 1 was actually BASED around that.

I guess ValkyrieProfile is sort of similar in the kind of, mm... timing issues that come up from it, and strategies, and what have you.

I always felt like a game mixing XGish comboes with Grandia's notion of charge, positioning, and movement would be really neat, especially if it incorporated some features where weak, normal, and strong attacks had different charges, so that you could, say, interrupt combos or something.

Pretty cool dungeon designs too, I thought. Never got far. Should try again.

Anyway, just wish it was less linear or something.

Novgorod declared war on Yaroslavl, who I'm trying to vassalize (that's not gonna happen now). Took two of Novgorod's provinces, forced them to pay me 50 moneys, and cede a bunch of cores. Hurray!

Sweden declares war on Gottland again and drags me into it. Fuck! -1 stab hit, and raised revolt risk.

Norway peaces out. Then the Golden Horde declares war. Doublefuck!

Eventually I sell them Nizhnij-Novgorod and they go away, except I'm out of money, prestige is in the negative, I don't have an army, and any extra money I get is gonna have to go to getting The Horde friendly with me.

See it's funny because I took over half of Novgorod and now I'm going to have to do what Novgorod did historically!

he'll still freak out over seeing another guy's penis. 

What if he lost his real penis in a farm equipment accident when he was five and had to get it replaced with somebody else's penis because the other person wanted a sex change and because they would no longer need a penis donated their penis to the boy who lost his penis and thus did need a penis, because in that penis the penis that he penised would not penis penis penis.

Wait, so did he get arrested for smuggling the lizard, or having them in his pants?

noone's going to hate this more than than the traditional Apple fanboys.

Peter's more of an Amiga guy, really.

So no, I don't think fanboys are going to snatch this thing up.

I do. They snatch everything up. They make sleek and fashionable-looking devices. Functionality's always been secondary. Price has always been tertiary.

Look at the iPod. For most of its lifespan it was overpriced and not appreciably better than the competition. Maybe that's different now. Maybe not. I don't know. People that want iPod's don't generally want them because they want a device that can play music. They want something trendy.

Then again, I don't really see much purpose in all the new stuff people are adding to cell phones these days. I mean, do you NEED to be fucking updating your facebook page 24/7?

My iPod is a Sansa Clip. It cost me sixty dollars. It has a 2GB storage capacity, ogg vorbis support, a screen, a radio, and a recorder function. It also behaves like a standard USB thumb drive so I could use it for that if I wanted.

My phone is an Envy2. It was free.

My eReader is an actual book. It is made of paper. The cost is trees, because Mother Earth is a bitch and I'm going to rape her in ways that Tim Curry could only imagine, and then I am going to rape Tim Curry.

Do you hear it Tim Curry!? Do you hear the scritching and gnashing in your closet!? DO YOU HEAR IT GETTING CLOSER!? THE EYES ARE CLOSING. YOU CANNOT RUN.

One thing that IS nice about the Macs on campus is that they come with phonetic Russian keyboard input by default, meaning I don't have to download it from somewhere or just buckle down and learn how the actual Russian keyboard is laid out.

I don't like how the uh, menu bar is always attached to the very top of the screen, no matter what you're doing with the program window.

I'm not sure I'd ever want a tablet PC. I mean, call me a luddite, but... what makes a tablet so special? It seems like I'd have to be craning my neck at a weird angle to look at it and it doesn't have a keyboard. I mean, I get wanting a touchscreen with a mobile or a DS or something. It's sort of like a mouse in a sense, and you don't otherwise have that kind of control. But when you're getting into something that large, you're sort of into "Okay, this could have a keyboard and a mouse" territory.
