Myst 4 isn't on the DS. And Myst 1 DS is supposed to be a really awful port.

But uh yeah there are a lot of 3D point and click adventure games on the PC. And most of them suck, too, which is why the genre is mostly dead now.

saga frontier:

emilia, last trinity base mission, second to last mission in general. gonna run around in the base and grind a bit because oddly i enjoy doing that.

unlimited saga:

finished mirror table quest, did three keys quest. getting crappy growth panels. need to do harder quests.

ffl2:

got my monster some decent meat and he became a TORTOISE. He has the same attack power but 2x defense 2x.

fukken want to play grandia but that's ELSEHWERE.

bought cacti from the internet.

studied some SDL tutorials and gamestate machine stuff. will try implementing tomorrow.

pushed wizardry 8 onto my stack of games that I'm *really intending to play* right now before may hits and I stop playing RPGs in favor of zork.

Remember when Molyneux used to not suck?

Why can't you make Magic Carpet 3 or another Syndicate game you stupid bastard.

Then again if he did they'd just end up like Theme Park world so let me rephrase that.

why can't you stop being a stupid bastard you stupid bastard?

unlimited saga -

* Picked Ruby's creepy younger brother.
* Started one of the 7 Wonder's Quests.
* Unlocked Reverse Delta for Mordeus.
* The other dude in my party that loses LP like a motherfucker from everything continues to be a total mook.
* Also, Mordeus has Quick-Fix L3 which is, uh, good, because the reel for that has a good amount of green on it, and tends to slide in your favor a lot.

Went back and beat the quest I was having trouble with. Got kind of crappy skill panels because I rushed through it without fighting much and also had everyone using non-standard skills so I could save my weapons for the boss. However, I did get diplomacy L3 for Kurt which is... a lot more useful than I realized.

It would also appear that I'm quite near the end of emelia's quest in sgf1. Perhaps I will finish that and... play Riki or something.

unlimited saga: Beat the mission I was stuck on. Apparently the victory condition is just defeating a set number of enemies (like the quest text implied X|) and the FAQ was wrong. Then I did some other quest for like, two hours and lost. I'm getting sabretigers as regular enemies now, which is *bad*. However, the puzzle in this quest involved putting some seashells on a grid to open a door. Now that I know how to arrange them, I'm not going to get killed by backtracking. I probably wouldn't have anyways if I'd have thought to collect a bunch of shells all at once instead of just 2 or 3 at a time. Oh well. My fault.

The clock maxed out at 99:59 so I'm estimating I went to 110.  (I almost went to eleven!)

I see what you did there and my answer is no.

(If that wasn't intentional then it's even funnier).

Probably SMT:N or ToS, with maybe around 70 hours each? I never finished either though.

Uh, dude. It's still too soon for Socks jokes.

big deal one time i had three of my dicks bitten off by 40 raccoons and it was in poland, too

I played unlimited saga for like, two hours. On one quest. which isn't ending for some reason. The FAQ I read said you... just need to get to the final 'square' in the dungeon and it ends on its own. It's not doing this. And I've been everywhere in the dungeon I could possibly be. Sooo... I'm going to have to make a gamefaqs account and ask them. eww :(

If an RPG Maker game uses borrowed graphics (from a copyrighted source. If they're graphics from a public domain artist, or some generic RPG Maker sprite repository of custom, free sprites made FOR RPG Maker, that's infe) I don't play the game out of principle. Ripped sprites, to me, is a huge sign of laziness, and seriously, every RPG Maker games with ripped sprites I've played is utter shit.

Anyway, I think there's a place for random battles. Reasoning:

Earlier this year I was hashing out the ruleset for this thing called Boolean RPG, which I won't really explain in depth because it's strange. Anyway, it's basically a first-person dungeon crawl. My original design had non-random monsters. There's sort of a problem, though, in that, without random monsters, there's a much lowered level of tension.

Now, I'm not saying you can't do random encounters like Earthbound did it -- randomly place a monster on a map, have it run at you, and if it hits, then go into battle mode. You know? But having all encounters be set encounters is a bit problematic because there's no surprise.

The problem with what I was doing, though -- an SMT-styled first person dungeon crawl -- is that your standard, random pop-up battles are the best looking solution.

Played FFL2 a bit. Mostly running around inside of KI'S GUTS.

Also played the first Rolan's Curse for a bit. It's... interesting. I liked the second one and Ninja Taro (is that related? It seems like it) a lot, lot more.

---edit---

Beat some bosses in saga frontier in the trinity base. Assellus kind of sucks when she's not the main on account of no asura but still having low LP.

I think I'm going to go play unlimited saga now and then when i get done with that, I'll draw some anteaters in the style of an Andrei Ryoblėv-ian icon.

Most JRPGs are pretty cotton candy, and just because FFX-2 had a lot more T&A than most of them doesn't mean that most of them don't have a lot of T&A.

Also Hollywood sucks a lot.

I did like Apocalypse Now more than Heart of Darkness. I think everyone did, though.

One of the greatest parts of reading a book is being able to imagine the characters and places and things looking however you want them to look.

I never really do this when I read. I also don't see it having that much relevance outside of like, fantasy or sci-fi. I also might argue that the author in question should be providing more concrete descriptions of whatever it is they're focusing on, maybe.

Then again, I haven't really read anything fictional since finishing Master i Margerita Freshman year. I've bought books since then. It's just that I've either hated them (Foundation), haven't bothered reading them (Ozhog, Babel-17, Gravity's Rainbow), or lose them (Stars in my Pockets like Grains of Sand). So what the hell do I know.
