Thanks man!  Nocturne came out on PSN, so it's going to be a good time.

Deployment over.  Back to full-time nerd.

Logged a lot of hours on Origins and completed all expansion content.  Only one playthrough of Dragon Age 2, didn't care for it.  I'm excited for Dragon Age 3 though.

Jumped off Toukiden to play some Ace.  Running around as a swordsman in swimming trunks.  Monsters are slain while being sexy.  Stupidly fun.

From the first Youtube video Kevadu linked:

Overpopulation has become such an issue that a drastic measure has been implemented: anyone arrested for any crime is found guilty, regardless of whether or not they actually are, and forced to battle giant monsters as punishment. Defeating the monsters, known as "Abductors" because they capture civilians, reduces the Criminals' sentences.

Dogi from Ys is my man.  An alternative is Boyd from Radiant Dawn.  Awww yeeeeeee.

Bought it, and Toukiden.  I look forward to mashing buttons until monsters burst like pinatas.

Finally started playing The Walking Dead that came with my Vita.  Great game so far, but the port is half-assed.  Constant stuttering and freezing as you play it.

Christ, I can't wait to get back home.  I have a lot of catching up to do.

Soul Sacrifice is... weird.  I'm not sure what to think of the combat system.  The lore and story so far are pretty interesting though.  The presentation reminds me of the powerpoint segments of Lost Odyssey.

Finished Ys: Memories of Celceta last night.  Had fun with it, but it's not as good as Ys: Oath in Felghana was.  I feel it had a lot to do with it being too similar to run-of-the-mill JRPGs with party members.  I like Adol better when he's by himself taking care of business and not having a party of bad anime tropes in tow.  Persona 4 Golden was full of anime tropes too, but I still liked the cast since they were fleshed out pretty nicely.  Celceta's cast was just terrible.

On to Soul Sacrifice!

I remember there was also one guy in the chat that was a complete Falcom fanboy and dealt pirated games.

That would be Kadamose.  He was the guy who first hacked LunarNet back before it became RPGFan, IIRC.

It's crazy thinking how that was about half my lifetime ago.  I was a weird kid back then.

Titania was... different.  She kind of disappeared entirely after exposing her blatant plagiarism.  Wonder if she still hates my guts to this day.

It certainly adds a lot more to a smaller scale story with lots of character development that makes the characters feel more like actual characters than a larger scale one with none of those qualities whatsoever.

Aesop's "The Fox and the Grapes" is an incredibly simple story that makes you think about cognitive dissonance.  There is no character development.  But it's not needed, because that's not the point of the story.  Every author has a different purpose for what they are writing.  Each author determines what they want to focus on.

You like character-centric stories.  That's fine, there's nothing wrong with that.  I however, take issue with your notion that stories that aren't character-centric aren't told well.


The stretch goal for Vita being lowered to $1 million makes me really happy.  I was originally just observing how the Kickstarter performed, but that number is much more realistic.  Definitely donating now.
