* Ultima 7 (Specifically, the entirety of Skara Brae comes to mind as being almost entirely NPC led).
* Dwarf Fortress (none of which have actually happened to me personally but go read Boatmurdered).
* Something involving accidentally turning a bunch of NPCs into zombies via sticker in Contact, leaving the screen, re-entering, they're back to normal, and I'm freaking the hell out for some reason.
* That guy in the Solaris prisons in Xenogears getting vaporized (Samson?)

Squirrel pinata keeps killing my snake pinata. Need to correct this. I have several options, primarily, selling the squirrel or fencing off the snake while it sleeps.

Discovered that I could basically make mask layers for roofs in Floorplan, which will allow me to create really !@#$%ing crazy roofs. Including slopey a-frames. Still not entirely sure how to do dutch hip roofs and bungalows. I have some ideas, though.

Nanowrimo is almost over, which means I won't be playing any videogames shortly because it's almost exam crunch time and I have about 20k words worth of projects and essays to do (shittily).

Got more critters in Viva Pinata. Realized that my lack of foresigh means my garden is basically in a perpetual state of mutually assured destruction for all involved and I still only have a Whirlm house.

This is pretty much the closest thing to a portable Dwarf Fortress I have. l o l1!!11one

Got a chance to play around with one of Punch's costlier home design solutions. Architectural Series 4000 or something. Runs for like 130-200, whereas Floorplan 8 cost me all of 10 bucks.

Basiscally, 3DHA v9 is a dumbed-down form of it. What exactly does AS4000 have that Floorplan does not? Well, it's easier to make lopsided walls, for one thing. In Floorplan ,you have to dick around with gable roofs and cathedral ceilings and you're playing it dangerously at that point. It also lets you make custom molding, which is something I would've liked to have in Floorplan. You also have a custom fireplace editor that doesn't look that useful, and a built in CAD feature that's not really on par with something like Blender. It's also got a bunch of things that a professional architect would need but are entirely useless for someone like me. Also it's still got a ton of stupid interface problems that 3DHA had. So yeah, ultimately pretty unimpressive. I wonder if the better homes and gardens thing is better but I doubt it.

Also I'm well aware that I'm the only person that considers this a game. please don't go out of your way to try and crush my illusion. it is already crushed enough.

You're not getting anything new if you already own one of the Xbox games, but it's solid portable version.

Well, yeah. No XBOX and can't run the windows version because it's that DirectX 10 Vista thing.

Anyway, went with that since DQM:J looked kind of slow, and I have DQM2 which I rather like but never got to spend much time with, so... yeah. Comments on Viva Pinata later after I play it more. I will say I agree with PopMatters in that it's SLIGHTLY unnerving and voyeuristic. In a good way.

7027  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Harvest Moon: Rune Factory. on: November 25, 2008, 06:23:53 PM
I'm in the mood for some retail therapy and this can be gotten pretty cheap. So, by far the best reviews of any recent Harvest Moon game, but did you guys like it? I mean, HM is niche, so if you don't like HM in general and didn't like it, state so :P Anyway, Rune Factory 2 is coming out soon. What's known about it?

Get Parasite Eve last week, played it briefly (lol nanowrimo. i'm nearly at 41k at least). I sort of wish FFXII's battle system had been more like that. Essential have the same area of attack thing (shared with VS), except PE makes moving around in battle actually important. I really wish you could've dodged attacks in FFXII. Also, would've liked aimed shots like in VS, but if that's the trade off I have to have for not having Risk or block pushing puzzles OKEY DOKEY.

Also thinking about getting DQM: Joker since it's only 15 bucks or Viva Pinata for the DS because I like virtual pet games (and it seems a bit more interesting than the Petz games. Remember when those weren't Nintendogs clones? I'm sure you don't because that was like a goddamn decade ago and you all drop so goddamn much acid).

Also, I recently purchased IMSI Floorplan. Technically this isn't a game as you're supposed to make blueprints with it, but I've made a game out of it by making blueprints I find online. The hard part is getting the roofs right. I do not understand the roof tool very well, and you have to fiddle with layers a lot (traditionally used for multiple stories. For my purposes, I'm using them to make really crazy gabled things.

Oh jesus.

I'm dissapointed though. I was kind of expecting something like JFK Reloaded, only with knives and a turkey.

As a vegetarian I am not a fan of PETA because they give people like me a bad name. Then again I don't eat meat because I love animals or something. I just find the idea of sticking dead animal tissue into my mouth very, very unappetizing. Also after like eight years I'm not sure I can even safely consume meat anymore anyway.

I didn't like what I played of VI much, though I admit I never got far.

Let's hope they don't fuck the translation up and remove party chat this time, or I will cut them and feel no remorse.

The only sexual innuendo at CNN is Anderson Cooper giving the world bedroom eyes, because he KNOWS we love it.

And wouldn't you know it, after Abe Lincoln's shot Andrew Johnson, possibly the most racist president in US history, ascends to power and pretty much ruins everything.  That just might have been the impetus that delayed civil rights for the next 100 or so years.  Lincoln was a Republican.  Andrew Johnson was a Democrat.

Se också: Nixon, Southern Strategy.

So this Rahm guy's pretty interesting. Hope my assumption is correct: That he's not there to bully republicans, but to duct-tape Pelosi's mouth shut every couple hours.

If a game's title sounds like a cancer, should you REALLY have high expectations?
7034  Media / The Soundroom / Re: Song of the Moment: 15th Anniversary Edition on: November 08, 2008, 12:20:42 AM
a-Ha - Cozy Prisons (again). Irrational love for a-Ha and synth pop aside, this song really sums up the general and unidentifiable and vague and intangible sense of malaise that I constantly feel about nothing at all. I have no idea. I can't believe it's been three years since I started now. It feels like it's been three years since 2007, but only one since 2006.

I don't care what you say about Palin. Biden's totally a VPILF.
