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.

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.

I tried doing the queen bee fight in evo. I'm not sure I have anything positive to say about this game.

The Japanese version of Terranigma generally runs around 25 if he knows la lingua japonica, and actually modding your SNES to play Japanese games doesn't involve anything more than breaking the tabs out of it, unlike PAL games which need converters. If there's an EU script somewhere for printing out and playing with, he might try that.

Actraiser is theoretically nonlinear since you can build towns in any order you pick AFAIK, although the difficulty of some of the bosses/sidescrolling levels and necessity to user certain spells in certain towns might require you to level up by building up certain towns first.

Soulblazer is also fairly linear but it lets you backtrack and sort of mandates it at points if you want certain items or whatever.
