So, got up to uh, 11 or so effects in Yume Nikki (including the Instruction one :P). Beautiful game. I'm going to play tong nou afterwards assuming I can get it working on the Vista PC. If not I'll be dicking around with Windows virtual machines.

Also, Devil Summoner 2! In the second acid-trip dungeon. I do hope that all of the locations in the game are eventually enterable and not just there on the map for completeness sake with DS1. I also need to grind for money, in theory. I enjoy the battle system a hell of a lot this time so grinding in and OF itself isn't a problem, but I'm worried about, you know, overleveling in the process and making the rest of the game really easy. Apparently I start encountering Fiends, though. Maybe... maybe one is Daisoujou :333 (And if you get it in your party, that'd make the game SERIOUSLY too easy).

I also read a few plot point about Devil Summoner 1. It sounds like the story improves as it goes on (I don't know why it was putting me off at first. I don't even usually care about story) but the demon capturing mechanic is STILL offputting to me kind of and IDKMYBFFJILL, I haven't really gotten any conclusive viewpoints as to weather the battles pick up the further you get in it or not. It seemed like kind of they did, but... Gen should I play this thing or what.

Persona 2 - SMILE Mall started. Fuck that map maker guy.

Yume Nikki - Just started this. Got the... biki, midget, long hair, hat and scarf, snow woman, and I THINK some other thing. Yume Nikki's funny in the sense that it's maybe the closest I've ever seen to Eastern Mind: The Lost Souls of Tong-Nou, which is easily the most unnerving game I've ever played.

Short youtube preview. I think the most notable room in the game is this room that's like... all four walls are just covered in disembodied breasts and you can, if I remember correctly, hit them. And doing this a lot causes the tower you're in to collapse, killing you--except this doesn't matter because you have to die several times to complete the game. And there's even one quest where you have to kill yourself by proxy. And everything in the game looks like a self-transforming machine elf and it's like the worst dream you ever had that you can't escape from.

And the best part is, the game is so obscure that I can't talk to anyone about it and make it seem less insane.

Well, clearly there's a reason FOR the law.

Didn't a lot of people just buy new SPs because they came out with new colors, too?

Persona 2: EP - Let's see! I sure as hell did something in it. Okay, I finished the gardens, got Nate in my party because seriously who cares about Ellen, did that sewer dungeon which was a throbbing bucket of cunts, fused a Pyro Jack which was *helpful as fuck*, did the lab, completed the map for the lab, beat the boss after about a bajillion tries, um... crap. Yeah, that's it. Good game but I understand the story even less than Persona 1's right now.

This is seriously everything I did to day. Well, other than going out to skyline. thems good eats brah

---edit---

Actually for the past since whenever I started this post, I played Chrono Cross. Did more stuff in that Dario sidequest, saw some nice backstory for Karsh and the lot, changed my opinion on what the game was REALLY about again, explored the ruins of viper manor, and I'm now going to go trap some summons. I rather wish the game would tell you WHAT enemies had which summons for trapping as like part of a sidequest or something.

I like synthesizer music. Screw orchestral.

Oh wow. That's cool but...

Is anyone even buying the DSi? No GBA slot in exchange for a crappy little camera (which I already have on my cell phone (and normal digital camera)) and DSWare which is hardly getting anything good?

YEAH I FELL ON THIS HORSE DILDO THAT MY BOYFRIEND'S MOM BOUGHT FOR ME BECAUSE SHE'S KIND OF WEIRD LIKE THAT.

What I don't get is why isn't this kid a Russian?

Anyway, perhaps Dincrest would like to give us a black perspective on the issue.

The sound synch problems are basically why I've yet to actually play Mother 3 :/ That and I need to import a real cart before I feel like I can do such a thing, morally. And eBay, like, half of the GBA carts are pirated. It sucks.

So, I tried playing BoF4 a bit, but it's slow. I'm at that golden plains thing. I don't know how I feel about this game honestly. I have STRONG NOSTALGIC TIES to BoF2 and 4 and just can't get into them anymore. Saudade!

I also want to go back and play Devil Summoner 1 some and see how it actually differs from DS2 and find out why I'm enjoying 2 just some much more. Oddly enough, I think it's the story, at least partially. DS1 never built up much tension.

Persona 2: EP- Did Aoba Park. I think I'm kind of underlevelled, and Katsuya could use some new guns. Anyway, I got a TON of death cards and made myself Hel. Also sprogged off some new combo spells. I also messed around in the bomb shelter but that was legitimately creeping me out somehow.

My system takes almost two minutes to load the area,  but I was LITERALLY just playing Soulless Army and the same area loaded no problems.

Uh... No. Not at all. Same load time as anywhere else.

Your PS2's eye might have the retarded (which is why I can't play TotA)

I still can't get the rhythmic combo system down.

It doesn't work right unless you're playing it on a real GBA. I don't know if you are or not though

Persona 3 - Completed various level 2 block requests. Nothing too interesting.

Devil Summoner 2 - Got to chapter 2.

Ultima 6 - Picked up Seggallion, left Serpent's Hold to go find gold nuggets, explored swamp cave, did not find much of interest, kept getting killed, left. Realized SEggallion came with a gold nugget. Bought a boat. Returned to Serpent's Hold. Got my magical shield made. HURFF. I need to buy food, get the last few runes, find that damned shipwreck, and get a balloon made. Also some other sidequests.

Played Eternal Punishment for like, two hours. Did the Zodiac dungeon, beat Noriko by having Policeman take some water absorbing persona and just keep shooting here while everyone else died..., doin' thangs in Aoba Park now. Discovered I locked myself out of getting Maia Custom. Theoretically I should be making new personas but none of the ones open to me right now are really good. At all. I think I'll go play in the bomb shelter.

This battle system is... slowish.

Also, Orcha is apparently my best red magic-caster in Chrono Cross somehow.

--edit--

Finished Fossil Roo in FFIX. That was atmospheric.

Also beat that crab boss in LoM, and didn't get the Ulkan Mines AF. !@#%. However, polpota did have better weapons. I switched from flail to 2H axe. I should probably switch weapons every ten levels or so to make sure I get even stat gain. Hard mode makes the bosses fun as hell but it makes the regular fights more annoying so :< I'll have to see if the Nightmare/Regular switching gameshark code changes levels mid-dungeon or not. If it DOES I can do the regular fights on easy and turn hard on for the bosses.

Thanks to tornado watches and storms and general MINDFUCKERY, I couldn't play the games I actually WANTED to play. Those being Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross, and Devil Summoner 2.

I played DS2 for awhile. No idea WHAT the hell I was doing since I sort of stopped when the Tornado Watch was issued (about five hours before the storm started. Derp). Anyway, Gen Eric Gui, does hard mode in DS1 make things more interesting?

That being said, I did play CC for a bit! I got through the adorable concert scene with nikki, which I'd somehow missed the first time--I missed a LOT of stuff the first time, mind--, found Dario, which... made me feel oddly happy, and also started clearing out Marbule, because of the afforementioned concert thingum.

Then I played Eternal Punishment a bit, since I'm, well, in a Megaten mood. Specifically, messed around in Club Zodiac, since I'd lost my earlier saves, somehow, where I was right at the BOSS of club Zodiac. I'm thinking that I never actually spread the rumor about the items being in there or something and starded over. Who nows. Anyway. I'm not really sure how I feel about Eternal Punishment. I think I've discussed this before, but I'm not fond of the summoning system, since it tends to be a bit on the... well, almost grindy side, in the sense that you're sort of grinding for cards and just buying personas with them. AFAIK there isn't any persona fusion system in place like in P3 or card fusion like P1 had. Also the battle system doesn't really jive with me and I'm not sure why.

I also played Ultima 6 for a bit but didn't do anything important there. Mostly ending up in Serpent's Hold, getting a quest, buying NEW HATS for my party, and deciding to drop Jaana in favor of Seggallion.

Also, Lowe's cactus :3c http://img29.imageshack.us/img29/2631/copyofdscf2386.jpg

WD also made that one SHMUP they translated unfinishable because they tweaked the difficulty.

In any case didn't Atlus USA absorb most of WD's ex-staffers?
