Kefka is memorable for different reasons depending on who you ask. Some people might say it's because he's totally evil, has no qualms with murdering children, and eventually destroys the world. Others will say it's because he's a psychotic idiot who was probably too autistic to even really know WHAT he was doing.

Similarly, with Sephiroth, to some people he was memorable because he was pretty and bishy and sparkly. To others, because he had a huge sword and killed lots of people. And, to others still, because he was completely psychotic and too autistic to even really know WHAT he was doing.

And then you get Seifer, who wasn't really evil in any capacity, but just sort of a massive dickweed (and Ultimecia was too inconsequential for me to really consider her the villain of FF8. I mean, the game even acknowledges this. She's a Macguffin).

Admittedly, I really shouldn't be saying anything here. I very rarely play an RPG long enough that I get to know anything about the villains.

Centipedes have similar issues like spiders. They're venomous, which is unnerving, and they have millions of oddly moving legs, and the same unnatural looking movements that spiders have.

Additionally, many internet predators are centipedes. I'm not saying ALL centipedes are dirty pedos, but there's a strong tend, here. Because of this I'm completely AGAINST centipede marriage and letting centipedes adopt children. It's just not how god intended it.

CC:

Beat the black dragon, which was, uh, peculiarly difficult. I don't think I should've mucked around with Riddel, or maybe I should've given her some sort of protection against Anti-White and some defense altering accessories. Actually, originally I was going to use Unicorn (for some reason) and had stamina boosts set up for her. Whoops and dammits. In any case fargo and riddel spent THAT boss stat bonus dead. Whoops and dammits. I did get the black plate though. And Trapped unicorn. I'd be happier if the game made it more apparent what things use which elements for trapping purposes.

DQ5:

Got to the next continent over. Not... not really a whole lot. I was playing it on my porch while it was raining though, which was neat :P

SD3:

Again not really a whole lot. Still in the way beginning. Just got captured by Lugar and got, uh... Angela in my party (with hawk and lise). I have noticed that hit/damage detection is rather better than in SoM, and that AI is quite rather much better than in SoM, although attacks still get canceled a little too easily and f!@#4 instant-hit magic spells.

Yume Nikki:

IIRC I'm up to about... 14, 15, or 16 effects now. Probably 14. I got the Uboa event, too :P

LoM:

Did the first quest in the Dragoon storyline. I really need to figure out how AI in this game works for partners. I mean, I know how it works in regards to pets and golems (its fairly trivial to give golems solid AI patterns, and somewhat not very trivial at all to change your pets' personalities) but I DON'T know why Bud is generally rubbish at killing things/not getting killed whereas Nic and Larc are throbbing death machines. Might be something with magic not being that useful for attacking (and if NPCs have hardcoded personalities that make them do certain behaviors).

Also, 2h axes are nice for the damage but they have a much smaller hit area than, say, nunchaku, and they're slower so if you miss it's not really that easy to just readjust your position at will.

Rats are hideous bastards and deserve whatever they get.

Those and chipmunks. Fuck chipmunks. Destructive, violent little whores-of-the-woods.

Secret of Mana:

I beat the Fire Gigas thing or whatever that was. I'm kind of annoyed about how glitchy hit detection is and how easy it is for charged attacks to get cancelled. It'd also be really nice if SD3 wasn't the only game in that series to have competent AI. Also, non-avoidable magic attacks in action RPGs don't jive to well with me unless they're really special things.

Jeez, given the topic, I figured this would've ended in someone getting their bear bitten off by a penis.

DS2. In Chapter 3. What have I done so far...

* Got enough money to get back that Lilim I fused.

* Tried to fuse a... Leana Sidhe or something. Victor went nuts. Gave me an Evil Zombie Officer instead. I sort of regret that so now I need to re-summon Makami and Alp and make Leana Sidhe again. Anyway.

* Encountered White Rider. I'd seen him before and promptly died. All in all it took me four times to kill him and it was awesomepic.

Now I need to do that sidequest where I find some guy called Kuroi so I can get some mad moneys.

Also attempted to play Devil Children White Book last night, except I rather need to learn the kana for that.

Isn't most maple syrup in america, like, not real maple syrup, anyway? And doesn't most of the real maple syrup in America COME from America -- namely Vermont and the like?

And aren't Canada's most important exports to the US lumber, oil, water, and electricity?

Let's get the Russians to club some baby seals with their spike-filled penises after we lure the seals out with the fish inside that other dude's penis.

Hey I need help on that Curse House mission. No outright telling me what to do please but could I get a few hints? I can't do anythig with the Violent Chicken, and Dark Mannen-Cho doesn't seem to have anything relevant.

Also what is the other quest where you fight 100 demons? I got some things that head a couple ways of... Obariyons and Makamis but nothing near 100 demons (and when I figured out the weaknesses on the Obariyons and casted like, "sword gets elemental property XYZ" on my spear it was just this possitive feedback loop of everything exploding into a beautiful mass of green).

also how the hell DO you use Recarm, life balls, and other revivers?

Anyway, I kind of feel like playing Devil children black, now. Time to go relearn the kana enough so that I can figure out spell names and the like.

(Also, a wonderful quote from the IGN comment box.

"I love me JRPG but none of us should be required to read countless pages of text anymore."

Now can you PLEASE stop asking me why I think that gamers as a whole are pretty illiterate?)

---edit---

Nevermind. Did the Cursed House thing and the 100 Demon Fight. In the latter, during the Nekomata/Wormpeople waves, I just had Makami and... Alp (null mind/death) spam maragi and mazio. Mazio healed the wormpeople, and hit them fairly frequently, but maragi stunned them too, so the free MAG and crit damage offset it completely.

I hope there are more fights like that. That was simply awesome.

I'm about at that point right now. I'll report when I finish this stuff.

I really appreciate how DS2 shows you loads of stuff before you can do anything with it. Law of Miyamoto and all. Much appreciated.

Can't you do the sidequest later? also how much HP do the nekomats have?

Sometimes felt like I was babysitting a bunch of high-maintenance teenage drama queens.

Didn't you used to moderate the forums?

Anyway, I'm not up to the fiends yet (I WOULD have been but I've been out of town for like three days), but I will say that being a Megaten game, leveling is probably not useful.

The only SMT-related game I powerleveled in was Persona 1, because I didn't grasp the ideas of "elemental weakness matter!" and "you should really fuse new personas dawg." I mean I literaly only fused new personas for most of the characters before Deva Yuga. I'm not sure how I did that.

btw gen is your copy of DS2 running better now at all?

then promptly lost half my money in Tento Forest because I walked into a dark area and kept falling over.

Have a demon cast "light up." Another guy later on tells you this in the forest.

If you lost a huge amount of money, just reload. There's a dragon's den right before the dark area, so...

No idea about the fiends, though.

As for the nekomata, just get something that's strong against mind/nerve. Or press R2 to make your demons invisible/call them to you and run like hell when Marin Kirin is being cast.

Eh, it's no more different from the original first-person dungeon crawlers than the beloved Heroes of Might & Magic series.

HoMM was good, though. Every OTHER MM spinoff since then's been crap.

HoMM was a King's Bounty spinoff too, anyway.
