I played some of the tutorial of Disciples 2 before i got a headache for some odd reason (weatherfront is to the EAST of here). Damn odd game though. Kind of wish the maps were more interactive like in HoMM3, although I DO like that individual units are more meaningful.

Also the JRPG-style battles are an interesting touch.

Also I bought an azalea because I have no self control. I guess I'll also go buy a coke and drink 20 goddamn paczkis.

Eat. Whatever.

Oh, really looking forward to starting out on Entomorph! Looks like I bought the Mac version but I found ways to get it running on a PC. The idea behind it is really interesting, and the magic system sounds cool. Looks like a more serious Dink Smallwood type thing with Albion-styled aesthetics.

It doesn't work on my computer. Apparently it requires hardware T&L for the sprites to show up.

Legend of Legaia is kind of retarded but I fucking love what I played of it for some reason.

Anyway, I've mostly been playing SimCity 4 lately, although I DID grab Disciples 2 Gold and Entomorph, and I'm very much looking forward to playing those for awhile. Disciples 2 seems like a very RPGisher Heroes-type game.

But yeah, SimCity 4. I started a new city as Mayor Bagrat Bagratuni to... keep things in line with Crusader Kings. Got a nice residential section going with a layout that let's me get some serious parkage going on while avoiding a grid. Don't know if I can ever expand it to accomodate more... upwardly, urban growth, but it's not for that. I'm thinking of moving the commercial district to its own area. Also there's a nice little industrial area there too, and a farming community in another map I'm calling North Jawbone that looks horrible because I suck at making farms look decent.

Also I bought a fern :3 It's a Blechnum gibbum, I think. They're not really uncommon but nobody sells them around here. They kind of look like a nephrolepis that doesn't make me hate myself, and they form trunks. Slowly. Also unlike nephrolepis ferns I doubt they shed so bad since the leaflet thingies are more attached to the stipe.

Well, that's sort of comforting, although confusing because Chapter 4 and 5 was the only party chat they apparently didn't actually translate at all.

But um... I liked 4 a lot but I have to say that 5 with its monster catching is just a little bit better for me so far. And I dig that 4 got rather nonlinear in chapter 5, although I didn't really like parts of the earlier chapters much, as they were a bit grindy (Torneko and the twins, for instance) and not as... developed (Alena's)? Also I have to say, 5's story is better so far. And I don't really play these games for the story much, but it's got some interesting stuff going on.

Party and character wise, though, DQ4 is really linear, and DQ5, since you catch monsters, is less so. Still a linear skill progression -- that's not something that changed till the 6, 7, and 8 set -- but it makes things feel a bit more varied.

Still say get DQ4 first just cause it's cheaper, though, and 5 should come down in price.

Surreal, Soviet-era cartoon from Latvia about a little yellow robot space cat named Indrikis XIII, who is able to transform himself, and starts out as a cube until a little red ball goes into him to make him come alive. He solves problems and things.

I really like 6's visual style. I wouldn't mind if they give the gameplay a rebalancing (it's... kind of grindy from what I remember) but I really liked how it looked. Nice music too, IIRC.

That's almost as retarded as the Fist of the North Star 2 theme song. Dear lord :(

JRPGs don't make sense. Nichego, tovarisch.

Fire Emblem sucks because lack of Jogurt.
