I'm okay with something like IoG being linear because the dungeons are fairly well designed and its action oriented. Linear, turn-based grindfests with strictly obstacleish dungeons DON'T make me happy.

Went to the STATE CAPITOL today, although I didn't see my supplier. I was waitin' around in a waitin' room/car for a tad, and played some games on my DS. EO, TWEWY, and Riviera. Didn't do much in either, really, but playing Riviera after having played CT recently made me notice something.

Most games with non-random encounters still randomize WHAT you face in battle, or randomize the placement of map-enemy-trigger-thingies on the map. CT and Riviera both have *set* encounters, which means you have a lot more room for creating interesting... attack patterns, if you will. More games ought to do this :(

My theory is that every battle in the game should be interesting and fun, and with an appropriate level of challenge to facilitate requirements 1 and 2. Fine-tuning the battles so that they are interesting and fun seems like a good way of doing this.

Or just make everything a mid-boss. Whatever. Contra Hard Corps dawg.

Morrowind:

Went to Ald Ruhn. Lost two of my party members in Seyda Neen in the process somehow (I guess they weren't in range when I used the strider?). Took on some quests in Ald Ruhn, namely one with the thieves guild that has me looting the mage's guild. Main problem is that I've learned my thievery skills (security and sneak) are way too low for this thing. Ouch. I'll be... breaking into houses a bit.

Need to find better lockpicks and a woodcraft kit.

Chrono Cross:

Finished the Dead Sea bit. Which means I can go between two worlds now which means *fun stuff* is gonna start happening with clone meetings and the rainbow shell and the like.

Also discovered that the game runs a lot better if you get the FPS up to the 62-65 range (although 65+ tends to mess up the music). I'm guessing that a lot of squaresoft games from that era had built in FPS limits to ensure that they run smoothly. I noticed this a lot with FFIX too.

Also the plot's still driving me crazy in the this-is-a-puzzle-with-no-solution sense. More concretely, I'm still grappling with "I'm way overthinking this" vs. "This storyline isn't what it seems to be about at all!"

Oh, and I trapped some spells from those creepy doll thingies in the Dead Sea.

I need more spurges even though they generally creep me way the heck out.

The ice pyramid isn't a later dungeon. It's like, the third dungeon.

---edit---

Fifth.

FFVII also killed John Kennedy.

John F. Kennedy.

Terranigma.

Picks WAY the hell back up after the clusterfuck that Dragoon Castle was, thank god. Beruga's Lab is pretty neat and has the same sort of creepiness to it that the black omen has (only not as much). The only problems are that:

A) It's not really clear that you need to keep returning to the elevator to progress. Actually letting you pick floor 1, 2, or 3 (Well, F1, B1, and B2. Wevs) while ghosting the ones you CAN'T use would've been a bit clearer, while also signaliing when you become able to go to different floors. Or something. I'm wondering if maybe it did and it was lost in translation. Also it wasn't clear if the various crawl-through vents were decorations or not. Same for the teleporters, especially since you have to jump into them. Better if you'd just walk in, or walk up to and press X.

IoG:

I think Lance is about to play Russian roulette. I love this game.

Breeth of Fair, the Frist:

I did some dungeon. I don't really know why. Back to IoG!

pulled up a picture of Neal (Dincrest) and determined that he's black. He's from India. Look at his last name.

I hear they made Dincrest black for the international release of RPGFan though,

Damned localization changes.

It's not really any worse than any other very traditional SNES RPG.

What about the people that try to find out where you go to school because... because they want to marry you?

tl;dr

---edit---

Wait, wait. What the fuck? Half of my posts are over 1000 words in length and I'm not in your goddamn little MSPaint comic? What the fuck! I'm not doing that for my own personal sense of well being, you know.

Oh well, we at least have Black Sigil to take it's place.

That's supposed to come out next week dawg.

What'd really be funny, of course, is that as soon as you boot up up your DS with Black Sigil in it, DNF starts playing.

be totally within ethical bounds to emulate.

Ethics aside, that's not a kosher topic for discussion.

I didn't like SD3 much. I was actually playing it today. It's kind of slow and gets rids of all the puzzle-solving bits from SD2, where you used your weapons to interact with the environment. It does add a day/night cycle, a weekly day cycle, and class changing, but the first two are more cute than consequential and the latter's just not a very interesting class system.

I never understood the love for this series.

It was the only SNES RPG with good writing.
