Well, it sounds like the MIND thingies can be summoned/unsummoned to change your status rather than just being something that appears whenever you use special abilities, so that's something different...

Google has been pushing the real name thing for a while now.  It's really quite obnoxious.  Their business used to be based on aggregate statistics.  Yes they always tracked people, but it didn't matter who a person was so long as they had something to distinguish unique individuals.  Knowing that people are X% likely to do Y was good enough for them.  But now they really seem to want to know everything about each individual.  Google Plus is perhaps the ultimate manifestation of that, and it's astoundingly creepy.

Well, at least to me it is.  But then I'm the kind of person who wouldn't even touch Facebook with a 10ft pole, and I feel increasingly like a dying species.  Most people seem to have no qualms about spilling their personal information all over the internet these days.

If you google my real name you get nothing about me, and that's how I want to keep it.

It sure as heck irks me when P3/P4 fans refuse to play the older games or worse find them unplayable, but what're you gonna do.

Hate to break it to you, but the older games are pretty much unplayable.  Despite what the image says, it's got nothing to do with "social sim elements" (which I couldn't care less about), but rather the slow combat and obnoxiously high encounter rates.  I gave them a fair shake and said the heck with it.  I've got better things to do with my time.

That said I quite enjoyed DDS.

TIE Defenders were cheap as heck.  They could trounce anything.
1955  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Torment: Tides of Numenera Kickstarter launched on: April 03, 2013, 06:39:57 PM
Just a bit of an update and reminder.  There is about 48 hours left to go on the kickstarter, so if you want to get in on this project now is the time.  The $3.5 million stretch goal has been reached so Chris Avellone has joined the design team!  I also upped my donation despite saying I wasn't going to...so much for that.

It will be interesting to see how high this goes.  A lot of kickstarter projects seem to get a ton of money in the first couple of days and the last couple of days, with the growth in between being a lot slower.  So this has the potential to be the most-funded kickstarter video game yet.

I think I've come to terms with it.  LucasArts was incredible during the 90s, but what have they actually done lately?  In some sense they've already been dead for a long time now...

It takes them an extra year and a half to bring Devil Survivor Overclocked to Europe despite it being English-only (i.e., exactly the same as the US version) but somehow they managed to add several game-breaking bugs in the process.

What a fuck up.  Don't you just love region locks?

I dislike the whole hours/dollar comparison thing because it's really easy to pad out a game and make it longer without actually making it any better.  And a lot of companies do exactly that when people start comparing hours of gameplay.  The end result is many hours of rather tedious repetitive gameplay, and that's even worse than a short game in my opinion.

I think I'm going off topic, though.

Demon's Souls free this week.

Man I can't wait for Persona 5.

April Fool's Day is over, Dice.  Bad pony.

It's better than charging normal price for half a game and then making you pay for DLC for the rest.

Framing scares me...

I've purchased various pieces of art over the years.  Nothing expensive, mostly just prints, but stuff I like.  I have to shamefully admit that most of it is just sitting in a closet somewhere...I'd like to frame and properly display it, but I know nothing about framing and every time I look into it I get intimidated.  To have a professional do it for me would cost many times the value of the actual art so that's out of the question.  But there are so many kinds of frames, mat materials, etc. to worry about, not to mention that with zero experience framing stuff I worry about damaging the art in the process.  When you do some research online it's easy to find people who are just totally obsessed with framing and get turned of by the whole thing.  I know it's stupid, but I just end up not doing anything with it...

I tried to read Fushugi Yuugi once...couldn't stand it.  The main girl (sorry, it's been a while, I don't remember their names...) spends all her time endlessly worring about whether or not some guy likes her (and doing stupid shit because of it) while the fate of the world is at stake.  Learn to prioritize, girl!

I'm actually more tolerant of shoujo stuff when it's pure romance for this reason.  Girls worrying about stupid shit is way less irritating when they're just boring high school students who don't have anything better to worry about.  That's just being human.  But when the shit starts going down you have to realize that it isn't actually that important.

Why does Eska have a tail?

Anyone read this?  Sounds kind of interesting, but I don't know that I want to shell out $5 for it.  Yes I'm cheap.
