My break from Final Fantasy X meant switching to X-2 (what a grand idea).

I got angry with the first battle, but then I started to see where my initial addiction came from.  I actually never beat X-2 (a dead PS2 happened) so it'll be great to go at it again.

I got a bit further in Bravely Default too.
I used a Bravely Second thing to get out of a pinch in one of the boss fights...
Tiz: "You mean you don't have to wait for charge SP?"
BRRR.  Hell, the fact you could BUY SP with *real* money was bad enough, I definitely don't need a game character telling me about it.

I'm loving the boss battles though, the harder they get the more interesting they get.

It's apparently STILL snowing in Toronto.

I am dreading winter next year.

I have been biking to work for 3 weeks already. Of course in about a month, I'll be complaining how balls hot it is. (Technically how humid it is).

Does anyone have any idea why I would need a Tuberculosis shot before I go to school in Canada?

Didn't we cure this like 60 or 70 years ago?

Apparently a few "cured" diseases are making a comeback due to non-immunized kids....  yeah.
Measles has also come back to 'Ssauga as well.


My band, Pool of Thorns, had an invigorating day in the studio today.  We're pretty excited about the new recordings we're doing, updating the demo, eventually doing an album, hopefully getting one of our new 'n improved recordings on the radio...

I'm proud of you!  I know you've always been a man who took music seriously so I'm glad it's giving back some love!

Oh, well I'm in Phase 3 so maybe I'm closer to the end than I thought...

uh oh...abrupt ending incoming.

Well, I don't know about that.  These phases can be pretty long.

Heh in that case.

It is interesting that it is so ...verbose this time.  I wonder if that will affect whether we see this game (and if so, hopefully the localization won't be as hack as the NISA one.. =/ )

So nobody is talking about this?  The listing has been taken down now, but it seems unlikely they would have made it in the first place if there wasn't something in the works...

It IS really curious (and of course the "Tales of Pessimists" are crying woes and are resolute in disbelieving it till Namdai says so themselves... which is probably the smart thing to do; but I get sick of reading 50 posts in a row about it).  But I have my reservations:

(1) I've heard mixed things for Hearts R (granted, reviews are more positive for Hearts R than Innocence R by a mile)
(2) I don't have a Vita (one day, maybe, maybe just the "right" title will make me jump and spend the money I don't have heh)
(3) Personally speaking, I thought Hearts "did more" for the NDS than it does as a budget remake for the Vita, so I'm kinda sour about the whole thing.  I'd have loved Hearts for the NDS more than I care about a Vita version I guess.

And not to sound like a graphics whore, but I mean, c'mon, are fancy filters that hard to apply to "glossy" over PS2-level graphics?  .

...I used him to kill Dark Valefor when I realized access to Besaid, the "forgotten" destruction sphere, and Anima were hanging on winning that fight.

I've really been enjoying the OST meanwhile.

Do people really hate Ringabel's VA that much?

I find it humorous.

I dislike Agnes' the most.  She has a great actress behind her, just boring stick-up-the-ass dialogue and muppet voice makes her no fun to listen to.

I think Edea's VA is the most on the ball.  And a lot of people seem to hate Tiz's voice, but I think it suits for the 'guy next door' kind of voice.

I watched Idiocracy again tonight. Still funny and alarmingly plausible.

THe opening five minutes and "St. God's Hospital" gets me every time... and agreed, it feels alarmingly plausible.

Haven't been on most of the weekend because when I came home from work on Saturday my fiance surprised me with a PS4 and Infamous Second Son. I was so stoked! I've only played it for a little while, but the game is fun and the graphics are gorgeous. I really like that Sony added how rare trophies are too. When I get on my PS3 and Vita now it's kind of disappointing that it isn't there. How hard would it be to update that? I like the layout of the menues and stuff on the PS4 alot more than PS3.

I love the trophy rarity bit too.  Though I can imagine it'll nag at completionists; but I think it's almost a perfect system to 'create' bragging rights.

Just finished Mirror's Edge (ios runner version) and the ending was really abrupt.  I had go to the main menu and see if there was a way to purchase/unlock levels.  If the console version of ME was just as abrupt/unresolved, I can see why people are excited about the sequel. 

I loved the style of this game, but I never got around to it.  I'm really curious and even glad its getting a sequel despite the mixed reviews --- there definitely is a fan base for it.

Pretty disappointed in this one...

The Wolf of Wall Street -

The Wolf of Wall Street has fantastic lead performances, but Scorsese disappoints with this over indulgent mess. The story rings hollow thanks to completely unlikable characters, a far too lengthy story that is 3 hours long, and an over reliance on sex and drugs to entertain. There's moments of gleeful exuberance, but it gets exhausting after awhile watching these characters go absolutely insane on drugs. I understand that this is a cautionary tale, but they could have cut back at least a little bit. The one positive I see from this is that they allowed all of this craziness without giving it a NC17 rating. There's a ton of nudity and language to go with the drugs and sex and I don't know how they got it through the rating system, but it is a win for anti-censorship. This was definitely my least favorite of the Best Picture nominees this year. I usually love Scorsese, but he went overboard with this film.

Given that it was advertised and reviewed as nothing less than a "comedy of debauchery" I wasn't disappointed.  The length was an issue for me, but the rest I liked for what it was.

That, and quite frankly, these "rise and fall" plots (usually also filled with a person who succumbs to drugs or whatever) has been done SOOOOOOOO many times that I'm glad we get it played up for laughs this time.

Your favourite games as Japanese woodblock print.

Starfox and FF6 get vote for my personal favourites

Thanks so much Aeolus for putting in the time for the reply. :)

Finally getting back to the game after a bit of burn out.  The cutscene in the fire cavern thing was the most riveting thing ever [in this game]!

So why again am I pre-ordering a download-only title?

Don't know, but there it is...

I got a PS3 theme, so yaay

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.


people just can't keep their pants on, dammit!!!!!!!!
