Sort of like what they did to Landstalker. I mean, what, it's sequels were Ladystalker, Time Stalker, that thing for the Saturn where you're a gay guy that fights bears in a prison and eats chocolate (You know what I'm talking about), and Steal Princess. Despite my issues with 2/3 of the genesis phantasy star games, I still like a lot of the Genesis RPGs (even the weird american ones like Rings of Power and Eternal Sun, even if I really, really suck at them), and Landstalkre was one of my favorites. I mean, I like it more than Zelda: LttmuddafukkkenP. And it's never gotten a decent sequel. Actually the Saturn gay bear wrestler thing was supposed to be alright but whatevz.

How was Granstream Saga, anyway? Everyone tells me it sucks, except for HG101, which said it was the best of the series. I think they're almost certainly full of crap.

Still trying to write up (coherently and concisely) why I liked Unlimited Saga. I have an interesting relationship with that game because it's the only game that comes to mind that I used to think was underrated that I still think IS underrate.

See, most of the games I used to love that I thought were really underrated -- Legend of Mana, for instance -- I don't really like anymore. I think aspects of LoM were underrated. For instance, I would still maintain that I thought it had a good storyline (or, specifically, storylines, as there were three. Whatever). But there's very little I like with the gameplay anymore.

Alternatively, there are other games, like Chrono Cross, where I like the gameplay mechanics more in abstract than in implementation (specifically, I think Chrono Cross' battle system is quite fun, but I do not understand at all why they have it running at like 40 FPS. Same for FFIX. Actually, it's probably a technical reason. You lock it at a lower FPS to keep it from getting choppy. It's still lame as balls. I'd rather they dropped polycounts).

Unlimited Saga I genuinely DO like though. However, I have more pressing concerns, such as nanowrimo or the massive fucking scale infestation eating one of my Chlorophytums.

This is my university's.


http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/4200/barfylogin.png And this is the colorscheme of the webmail login.

I wasn't colorblind before looking at that but I think I am now.

http://www.twodocs.com/images/color-vision-plates/total_color_blind_test_numbers_14.gif Seriously though SAME DAMN COLORSCHEME.

And what's ad is we have a HCI course here and they tell us NOT to do shit like that, and it's the CS students designing the webpage. Either someone failed that class or has a really bad sense of humor.

I'm sure you guys can find worse, though.

8:15 AM: Left house.
9:20 AM: Got to university clinic.
9:40 AM: Recieved H1N1 vaccine. Rather surprised at short wait. Diseases sort of taste like cheese.
10:15 AM: Went to Local Record Store; bought Fleetwood Mac - Tusk.
10:45 AM: Got to wherever the heck I went for breakfast in Findlay; ate delicious pumpkin stuffed french toast.
11:Something AM: Went to Findlay mall.
12:Something PM: Went to Indian restaurant. Ordered delicious mango lassi and chana bhatura.
1:Something PM: Stuff happened.
2:30 PM: Went to sleep.
4:30 PM: Woke up because my parents were going out to dinner for some reason.
??? PM: I don't remember what happened.
12:00 AM: Nanowrimo started. Watched naruto for a few hours instead despite the fact that I don't even like Naruto.
2:00 AM: Fuck nanowrimo. Too tired.

Then today I wrote like 5800 words for it anyway. Also just learned the guy who plays Jackson on Hannah Montana is 32 (WTF?). Tripping on caffiene. Played viva pinata. Petted cacti. Fuzzy~~~

Trick or Treat was actually on thursday here... at... home. not here. At home. Huge party that I'd never been in town to see before. Spent most of the night inside because it was WAY too crowded.

Still have russian writing to do. Islozheniya ftw !!

Okay, so now I'm watching the little mermaid series on tv and like they're playing dungeons and dragons on it and using sebastian as a game piece. I think I just did meth and didn't realize it. Oh god what is happening

oh god now they're going to turn sebastian into a giant magic crab and this looks like it was animated by the czech tom and jerry animation team hooooolyyyyyyy shiiiiiiiiiiiit


the manmaids have nipples why do fish people have nipples are they even mammals i mean they have nipples so they HAVE to be mammals but they're WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON HERE oh god i need protein this can't be real i am not watching this... ffff make it stop why does that mermaid look like barack obama

Actually, it's a pacing question.

No. They have to fit all the engine code on every disc, as well as all the relevant assets for that disc's content. When you get airships and crap, at any moment you can potentially be going to ANY city, so as you go along, the number of assets you need per disc -- and as such, the amount of space being taken up per disc -- goes up. You start hitting limits. Thus, you need to close off earlier areas (BLOW UP ALEXANDRIA/THE WORLD/WHATEVER) or just spread out later areas.

At least that's the official word. To me, I don't see how town assets could really be taking up that much space, unless your programming team consists of idiots. Then again, this IS Square we're talking about, though, so...

I don't buy your explanation, though, because getting an airship really doesn't change the scale of how you're viewing the world at all. You just move faster.

Fleetwood Mac - Tusk

This is like the best album ever. Marching bands are awesome.

Managed to get the one norn I was trying to get pregnant knocked up. Twice. Looks like another one is fertile now too. Dunno if I should use the same father or what. Also I never noticed that the females had cyclic fertility so maybe the one norn I thought was infertile actually isn't (she IS a slow ager, though).

Oh man I love Shihoko Hirata, she has such a great voice and is pretty cute to boot.

Wait, isn't Shihoko one of the most popular indie crossdressing musicians in Japan? What's the term for that anyway? I mean it's sort of related to glam and has traditional aspects dating back to Kabuki, but I mean, more outright crossdressing like that guy from Malice Mizer than whatever the hell Brian Eno used to do: http://www.propertyinvesting.net/cgi-script/csNews/image_upload/specialreports_2edb.brian-eno.jpg

Tried playing Creatures 2 for a bit and it was going okay, except two norns kept getting stuck in a terrarium and starving. Anyway, one of the girls became adolescent which means breedable, so I imported one of the males and tried to get them to go at it. unfortunately, the female's period of fertility never coincided with her actually having a sex drive and pumping her full of sex drive chemicals just sort of made her biochemistry freak out.

I keep hoping the gaming industry dies. It's like a forest. Sometimes it needs to burn for new trees to grow!

What's sad is that there's already a 300 pound character in Persona 1 and he has a GIANT FUCKING DONGAPEDE bursting out of him. Cosplay that SOB, bro.

Velma kind of looks like everyone's mom.
