Played Quest for Glory 2 some more. Apparently, you have to click the talk icon on yourself sometimes to answer NPCs questions. Anyway, I haven't done a whole lot. New events happen from day to day, so I've been fairly passive. I HAVE been trying to level up my thief skills. Also, doing the Thief Guild Sign is also accomplished with click the talk icon on yourself, so I'll PROBABLY be able to progress, there.

I wonder if I can make out with Rakeesh...

That's not kind of close enough.

Also, this is the point where I'd like to say that I never had the original Jagged Alliance, but as far as I know, I have it, along with that pseudo-sequel, and then JA2. I just never played them much because they're *hard*.

Also have Ys and am in the mines.


No Eusis you are the mines.

FFVII: Beat... some... Jenova thing in place with snowy things and wind. I'm totally convinced ESkill is the best materia in the game, or at least the funnest. Also, I'd like it if transform seemed to work with Add Effect... I read that it did, but I can only get poison to work consistently. Anyone ever tried it? Also, can I get anything decent with morph? I haven't used it much.

Continuing on, did grap in Junon, got airship, and played Ft. Condor for awhile.

Maybe there'll be an X-Com DS too.

Quest For Glory 2: Found the Astrologer. No idea what to do there. Consulted walkthrough. Solution does not apply to AGD version. Fuck.
6952  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Quest for Glory 2 remake released on: August 26, 2008, 10:59:32 PM
AGD's games are licensed but the actually licensing status confused me a lot. But this is legal, yeah. As long as you never, ever pay them for it.

I still don't get why Sierra never made a QfG compilation recently. They'd done it in the past, but I mean, they bundle Larry, King's Quest, Space Quest, and Police Quest IIRC. And no Quest for Glory.

After playing FFVII for a bit last night, it got me thinking. I never thought it was a particularly convincing world. It's funny, though. After taking Russia culture classes for a bit, it seems a LOT more convincing to me. Rocket Town is TOTALLY something the soviets would do, and then there's the whole "Two huge, important cities and a lot of tiny villages that don't matter much." More than anything, though, the level of theatricity and over-the-toppishness that Shinra displays totally smacks of Putin's administration.

Unrelated, but Black Mark is awesome.

BTW, anyone watch good eats on youtube? LikeTheHat has pretty much every episode up.

It's a freeware remake that AGD (not sierra) has been working on for like a bazillion years now.

AGD's had a pretty good track record. Yet to play this though.

I got up your arsenal last year and enjoyed it for awhile but it seemed kind of tedious. There weren't any mid level saves, the levels were long, and uh... I think I was in some underwater base level that just made me not want to play it anymore.

Fiddled around with FFVII a bit, mostly getting peoples' materias set up. Because I forgot to do that. Which makes you lose fights. I'm apparently in some placed called the Whirlwind Maze. The last thing I remember doing in the game is fighting icecicles in that one snowy place so I must've played for a bit and forgot about it or something.

There's this one strategy RPG that, apparently, some people love, which is LIKE Fire Emblem, except it's supposedly better because it's hex based and more importantly, only *killing* an enemy gets you experience.

This sounds like a horrible idea to me, honestly. It magnifies the "only the strongest characters ever level up because the experience for just attacking isn't high enough" to really retarded levels.

Speaking of SRPGs, I should get back to something Front Mission. I started over on FM3 with the Alisa arc and was liking it several hells of a lot better than the WE ARE AMERICA arc.

Anyway, I played Chrono Cross for an hour and didn't do much. Some minor plot elements in Marbule occured. Got the star fragment. Got the Heckran bone but Poshul's being a bitch and won't join me because apparently I'm a furry now. Thought about trying to sequence break with Starky but not really in the mood. Might get some transformations for Sprigg. I like Sprigg. My dorm's like really freaking hot and at this point I'm content to just sail Porre Pontoon Catamaran around the island repeatedly while giggling.

Also played Divine Divinity for awhile. That game has a really peculiar concept of balance. I seriously, seriously hope the reports about it improving a lot after the first dungeon are true.

Made various attempts at playing Arc 2 and Dragon Warrior 7. Pretty much anything that's more tedious than like Aquanaut's Holiday is a BIT too much of an effort for me right now.

Yeah, Gogen is crazy if you got him some levels in arc 1. Some of the other characters are supposedly nerfed, though. Arc is the one I hear the most complaints about.

Have you been catching monsters with Lieza by the way? Some of them can get pretty strong (especially the ones that can get the better weapons). I don't know if you'd typically want to use them over regular party members but they're neat to play around with.

Also apparently you also gain exp for getting healed some I'm also a little mystified as to how it's hard to level up in this game. Seriously I usually have at least one character gain a level every battle. There's not way this can be worse than Fire Emblem* was about about it.

Anyway, I've sort of decided on the group of PC RPGs I'll be focusing on for awhile. The main ones are Wizardry 8, Divine Divinity, and Ultima 7. Also kind of taking a hiatus from any SNES games and legend of mana.

* Emblem  is sort of a funny word if you think about it.

I played chrono trigger and cross tonight. these games make me happy in ways that other games don't. getting characters in cross. just got norris. i love norris. he's so adorable. still in the black omen in chrono trigger.

and as mentioned elsewhere i won a stuffed dog from popping balloons at the fair. this also makes me happy.

i sometimes cry at commercials and when i finish a glass of iced tea because i will never be able to drink that same glass of iced tea again because it will always be different tea even if the leaves are always from genetic clones.

Seeing as I'm moving back to college I need to decide which games to take so this'll influence my gaming log in the weeks to come. Here's what I came up with:

PS2
---

DQ8
SMT:N
Pesona 3
Metal Saga
Romancing Saga
Ookami
Some other damn thing that might be an RPG and could be Wizardry.

PSX
---

DQ7
FFVII
Arc the Lad 2
Tomba - Can we call that an RPG? If not
Legend of Legaia (Why the hell? Why not Star Ocean 2? I like that more.)
Musashi
Saga Frontier.
Chrono Cross
King's Field (!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!)

DS
---

Rocket Slime
Contact
Front Mission
Twewy
Puzzle Quest
Also there are various GBA games stuck in the GBA game slots in the DS game cases boxes. I don't know what these are but I might finally beat Riviera since it sort of looks not as pretty without a backlight.

Essentially, though, I'm not taking my SNES with me.
