Finished Cornelius' story in Odin Sphere last night, thereby making it farther than I ever did in the original game.

Mercedes' story is adorable as can be, but HOLY HELL do I hate playing as her.
As I recall, she was worse in the original. Look on the bright side though, she eventually becomes the best boss killer in the game (combo her skill that elimates reload with Summon Spirits and prepare to watch everything die). Also you are in for a treat if you didn't get this far in the original as some of the best parts in the story (at least imo) have yet to come.

Yeah she's the worst to start with but at the end she's a killin' queen.  Lit.

Legend of Mana (FIN)
My time with Mana here, in summary, FAR exceeded my expectations. That isn't to say it is "the best game I ever played"  (it wears all it's flaws on it's sleeve) but I'd be lying if I didn't state "I sure wish LoM-Styled became a sub-genre of light RPG's altogether". I'm more then content in the peculiar way I feel this is more a "to be continued" than a "fin" for me. Having good reason to re-experience this title a time or two is nothing short of comforting and that is not something I typically feel after the credits roll, ever.

I forgot to respond earlier, but yeah those statues in the lady's house are the Seiken 3 heroes and I love it.

Proper post (and gifs of trains being suplexed) to follow shortly

Yeah...if my FF9 journal taught me anything, this shit can take a while. :S
Can't wait all the same, and goddamn that is a great gif. x)

At least the music in Serpent's Trench is lovely (it's weird I remember even liking it the first time I heard it, way way WAAY back when).  Oh, make sure you visit there again later with Mog.

Anyone watched "Stranger Things" on Netflix yet?

I just binged the whole 8 episodes and I though it was fantastic!

I watched the first 10 minutes, then life got in the way.  I will say I'm loving that main theme though (and basically all the main boys look like all the old photos of my brother at that age, it's kinda funny and perfect).  I also love watching stuff with Winona Ryder, her voice has a fun "melody" to it.

I'll watch more tonight!

Who was the worst kid show MC?
Doug or Arthur?

I never understood the appeal of either, but Doug's face looks like something I want to punch more.  Mainly for that stupid alter-ego superhero.

...like huh?

This is insane.  I can hear it happen a thousand times and it still is fucked up.

Quote
NORTH MIAMI, FLA. (WSVN) - A therapist who works with people with disabilities is telling his story after he said police shot him while he was trying to help his patient with autism.

Cellphone video was released Wednesday afternoon showing Charles Kinsey lying on the ground with his hands in the air, telling officers that weapons are not necessary. When I went to the ground, Im going to the ground just like this here with my hands up, Kinsey said, and I am laying down here just like this, and Im telling them again, Sir, there is no need for firearms. Im unarmed, hes an autistic guy. He got a toy truck in his hand.

In his hospital bed, Kinsey said, he was attempting to calm an autistic patient who ran away from a group home. Kinsey could be heard in the video saying, All he has is a toy truck. A toy truck. I am a behavior therapist at a group home.

He is also heard asking his patient to calm down. Rinaldo, please be still, Rinaldo. Sit down, Rinaldo. Lay on your stomach.

The ordeal went on for a few minutes before Kinsey said one of the officers shot him. Im like this right here, and when he shot me, it was so surprising, Kinsey said. It was like a mosquito bite, and when it hit me, Im like, I still got my hands in the air, and I said, No I just got shot! And Im saying, Sir, why did you shoot me? and his words to me, he said, I dont know.'

tl;dr: A black unarmed caretaker was shot when trying to calm down the autistic man he takes care of.

But....why does no one have feet?

Love it. xD

I'm guessing it's because it's 'cuter' too.

I'm starting to wonder how much it would cost me to negotiate a green card (or whatever it's called up north) marriage with a Canadian fanner (regardless of their gender)

Dice, your response?  This is as romantic as Josh, gets, so...

Dice, Annubis, whomever works

Ah! I always forget Annubi is in Canada.  Buddy if you're ever in the GTA, let's get lunch! :P

And Josh, you're not the first American to ask to move to Canada if Trump wins hahah  But sure, the more the merrier!  Plus with our insurances combined as a married couple, we'll have amazing teeth for Trump's entire presidency! :D  (I guess that's me being just as romantic back about it)

Stephen Colbert brought Stephen Colbert out of hiding to do a segment of "The Word" on The Late Show and it was pretty great.

Banned '90s LUNCHABLEZ Commercial

I don't even have to click because I have it saved on my computer because it's absolutely amazing.

What the fuck you know about Snickers bite-sized?

There are really no words that haven't been said already a hundred times to describe that amazing shit show of US politics.

Yesterday's Republican Convention was unreal.
If trump is voted in I wonder if we'll see our first presidential assassination in our lifetime. (....too soon? Too dark? Bah)

I beat a game!!

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir

> Goddamn this game has aged beautiful.  Thanks to Vanillaware's groundbreaking visual ambition.  Not only are the graphics top-to-bottom beautiful but for the most part it also functions well.  So a big tip of the hat to Vanillaware for being a LOT more than just a pretty face.

> The new Archive feature is beautifully rendered (I love when items or extra 'footnotes' popup too).  GODDAMN THIS GAME IS LOVELY!!!!

> Oh it also has classic mode so you can replay it PS2 style!  ....But who cares! 

> The changes to gameplay are very appreciated and take into account most of the obstacles and frustrations from the "initial release" of the game and do away with them.  Levels are now more than just looped circular maps, but some levels are flat, round, and include other mini challenges to vary up the playing field.  It's not much, but it actually does go a long way and makes the five character stories less tedious.  The changes are minor but significant, and I'd love it if more remasters/HD releases did this.

> Characters are much more different to play as, having all unique movesets and skills. It's pretty cool!  I feel like it's super easy to weed out the good/bad attacks though.  But they all do look pretty (and omg that fact every power has a unique "jewel" is amazing).

> I do like the game dealing with pretty mature themes and really carrying out its vision.  Odin is quite the imposing adulterer, Mercedes goes from timid to triumphant after the death of her mother, and King Valentine is possibly one of my favourite villains to fear (he's absolutely insane...).

> I LOVE THE NEW TRACKS!!!!
Ringford's new battle theme is actually magical and Nebulopolis' new tune is gorgeous.

> Dealing with Cornelius: "Aw man a Rabbit Knight??  That's so lame compared to the AWESOME Shadow Knight"
> Later: "Ta hell with Oswald, Cornelius is the TITS"

I never really noticed it taking itself too seriously beyond maybe the graphics not being up-to-snuff for what it was trying to show and the occasional hammy line reading.  I'm also pretty sure Ash Ketchum voices like five different characters, so the small VA cast was a little distracting too.
I think it's still the only well-done tri-Ace story. :P

I mentioned it previously, but I for one am planning on going to MAGFest in 2017, so if you guys did a panel I'd definitely show up.  I've never been to one before, so it'd be nice to have one thing that I'd be especially looking forward to.

Ooooo, meeting more Fanners. <3 :D

Always exciting to confirm people here are real and not just..like...I dunno, AI bots.

She's on to us! Act natural! Beep boop beep.

God dammit.  Not again.
