I'd wait on DQVII until the 3DS version comes out since that's going to be infinitely more playable due to being on a handheld.

That said, I've decided to screw around with KI:U some more since that game is harder to 100% than all five SSB combined.

Also my first attempt at tackling RKA ended on the boss of Stage 4. Between learning the layouts and being fairly sloppy in general, I sorta ran out of lives.

A game we all deserved with a control scheme it didn't deserve.

But of a rollercoaster here.  Sorry about the police and the package. :/

Wait, police, what?

Augh, my bad, I typed "post office" haphazardly and police officer happened then I did a shite job deleting it...

But of a rollercoaster here.  Sorry about the police and the package. :/

Wait, police, what?

Anyway I went to the dentist and apparently I need like 12 fillings and eight sealant applications because the black spots that I've had on my teeth for like the past eight years are cavities. And I'm wondering why previous two dentists never raised any concerns. Last guy said they were calcium stains/deposits/something. Also recall previous dentists inspecting suspicious marks with a jabby hook tool to see if the enamel was soft or something. This guy didn't do that. idk if that's relevant.

But yeah breaks is that previous dentists were either /not/ doing a good job or new guy is just upselling me on fillings I don't need? I feel kind of fucked over either way.

Also now I've got this paranoia where I'm like oh nooooo I should've gone to the dentist sooner, I'm like on the verge of needing a root canal!!! except as I said, my teeth have been like this since fucking 2008 so

-- edit --

You know, I don't want to wait to get the fillings done but I'm thinking about calling up the office, cancelling the appointment, and getting it done elsewhere. idk why, that office just gave me bad vibes. Maybe I'm just miffed at the prospect of having 12 fillings and kind of in denial or something, but... I don't know, I really felt like I was being fast-talked.

Black spots usually are cavaties, no?  Poking and prodding with the hook aside.

Echo Night - Did.

I got the GOOD ending but not the BEST ending cause I didn't realize you had to feed the souls to the black guy from space.

I loved his voice. x)

Playing more Zestiria.  I caved and got the Evangelion DLC, it's beautiful and I'm an old fan of the series (small shame they didn't give an EVA-related battle theme x). 

Fuck... I mean.  It's still "ok", but I hate how halkf-baked everything is and it makes me sad they sort of "redo" games from the ground up since the series has had a TON of good ideas, some I wish would re-emerge but JRPGs seem so keen on throwing the champagne out with the cork and starting everything fresh --- even when it's awful.  The item system sucks, the equipment system is novel but annoying, the title system is devoid of fun, the story exists but typical Tales style starts falling apart and leaving Abyss as the only real and really successful attempt to craft a fulfilling story.  I mean, I like it enough, but problems are everywhere.

Hmm I have an idea here.

I'm game if it means we see it overseas.  Interesting development.

(I forgot to say thanks for the little spoiler bit!  I figured as much, but I was actually kinda happy to 'deduce correctly'. xD)

Yeah.  I think the worst part about the first FOUR (!!) chapters (+ Prologue!) is it's WAAAAAYY too episode-of-the-week.  The "whodunit" is ALWAYS "The Society" and each "mystery" being Scooby Doo levels of predictable (making Renne's appearance a running counter for 'odd behaviour' till she finally fesses up that she's working for Ouroboros).   FC at least took you to new locations and had new issues each time, SC so far is going to familiar places, meeting familiar people, and performing chump tasks till the villain decides to show up at the end.

I *finally* hit Bose (I'm taking my sweet time at about 40-50 hours now) and things are *finally* starting to get heat up.  Reactions on GAF seem to indicate that it's only better from here on out at least.  I sorely miss Estelle and Joshua's interactions, I guess that's what really makes "the journey" so worth it in some ways.   And it's not that I'm not enjoying myself, but I've definitely been skipping a bit of dialogue when it starts running on (and on, and on). 

If things get dry, usually bringing Olivier helps. :P

Putting this in a link due to possibly being NWS (and definitely being NMS).
God she is gross looking...

The other one of her looked really good though, hell they even made her make up look good (and I hate when figures make the eyes look too...'sprayed on').... I dunno, I think this is one of those random weird garage kits that got picked up... I'm kinda surprised it made it to production with the bizarre anatomy.  Wtf is with the pelvis?????

So today my Goddess Black Heart figurine that I pre-ordered months ago came in. At the moment I'm regretting getting it. The thing was such a pain to put together, I managed to break two pegs off in the process. One was a clean break and was able to be glued back on easily enough with super glue, the other one is temporarily set in place with the help of super glue but needs something better to put it together more permanently. Waiting on an order of special hobby glue that I found recommended on another forum.

The thing is beautiful now that it's put together, but it's also even bigger than I thought it would be and looks a little awkward next to my other figures. And every time I look at it at the moment I just remember how stressful my morning was because of it.

I'm sure eventually it will be another cherished part of my collection, but right now it's just another source of anxiety in a time when I have plenty of that.

(No pictures until I'm no longer afraid to breathe on the thing, apologies if that's disappointing.)

That Black Heart fig looked amazzzing.  Hopefullt despite the issues you still glance up at it time to time and feel happy about it.
I've sort of 'fronted' my Nendo Estelle Bright while I'm playing SC.  It's stupid, but makes me happy.
(and yeah I get the height thing with my Atelier Ayesha figure, she's almost got an inch on most of my other figures (I blame her platform shoes :P).

Called post office again to see if there was any update on investigation into where my stuff went. Their response was that it wasn't at their office, so they couldn't help me.

Flagged down a mail carrier. Asked him the same thing. His response is that when packages are scanned, they have some GPS info recorded with them so you can see where they were /actually/ scanned at. And that the post office should have been able to look this up for me.


Anyway one of my neighbor's male units [sic] is bulging so I'll ask them to see if they got it by mistake whenever they show up.

turns out nope

But of a rollercoaster here.  Sorry about the police and the package. :/

Well, I just finished my meeting.

That's 8:30 to 20:30 work day.
Not something you usually see in the corporate world if you aren't management.

Fuck that,  you better be up for a promotion soon or something.  Sucks when a lot of these jobs sort of demand this kinda garbage to get ahead.
Hope you got home and treated yourself to something.  Food, gaming, a good shower, etc.

Anyone else annoyed by Nintendo's stupidly small special edition runs? They announce it aaaaaaaaand 5minutes later the majority are scooped by scalpters.

Do they not know that people would want to buy these? More numbers = more people buying = more money in Nintendo's pockets.

Bah @ Fire Emblem. Not that any Canadian store ever got any preorders allocated to them anyways.

Yeah this is such a bunch of bullshit.  Their 'manufactured rarity' is becoming annoying to deal with.  I'm glad we eventually saw the Xenoblade X LE in Canada...  Waiting for a Twilight Princess one to pop up, but I'm like a good 80% certain I'll "miss it" because I stepped out for the night. :P

Worked all weekend.  Our store is getting nuts right now and like Annubis, there's even been stuff to do 'after hours'.  I'm absolutely zonked
Today was a bit of a treat though, I went to go see Postmodern Jukebox in concert downtown Toronto.  For those who don't know they do modern songs in all sorts of musical styles from the early-mid 20th century (with a special priority to pop, jazz, and swing).  I was honestly toe-tapping the entire time, they put on an amazing show.

Yeah Gamefaqs was my first "forum hangout" spot way back when.  It's definitely devolved, you can't really have a good conversation about a damn thing on there.  I think I gave up on one "argument" when someone responded with Thunderf00t and realized there was totally no point in talking to that void.  I just like to stick to asking questions and helping others nowadays.  The opinion topics get real stupid real fast.

I'm just snowballing, and again, I'm setting myself up to hate this game at this rate, but this is the most excited I've been to own a game in YEEARRS. :)

I was going to quote about ten of you all because many of you are right. T__T

I'm going to start a Suicide Prevention Service where someone calls, feeling "down" (to put it mildly), and I just bring them everything listed here. 
I feel a good meal can turn frowns upside down (again, putting it mildly).

Twilight Princess is far-and-away my favorite game in the series, however, I only recently replayed it on Wii, that and the fact that I don't have a WiiU means I'll be skipping it. TBH, when I replayed it, about 8 years after it's release, the graphics didn't really feel dated to me, I'm not sure it's going to need much.

PS: Not sure what Dice keeps talking about "uncompressed graphics". To quote one of my favorite films, "You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means." Compression is simply a process of creating smaller files by running the data through algorythms, but the side effect is that it causes artifacts and blemishes. Compression isn't really as much of a problem for modern games, DVDs have a lot of space on them, and even high resolution textures aren't very big. A single 5-minute movie can take up as much space as all the assets in the game combined. No, what we're seeing here is higher resolution textures, and more textures, as well as added bump maps. Some totally new assets added to the original graphics (in the case of the textures on Zant's helmet). This is more than simply "re-outputing the graphics in some better way", but the design team actually having to do stuff. Yes, some of these things may be old assets that had to be scrapped due to CPU constraints, but in any case, there's actually new stuff here.

I said it once. T__T
But I'm definitely guilty of being a little sheep, I saw someone else say it, I took it, and that was that. :/

But yeah I shouldn't have run my mouth on that.  Looking at the texture (seeing that they don't "match up" from GC to WiiU) seems to show that yeah, they made new stuff.  I'm guessing it was a bad phrase that started since the game didn't look like A MASSIVE GRAPHICAL OVERHAUL people were expecting[??].  It's funny you mention that you didn't think it looked dated...  I agree (besides maybe the occasional really rounded and muddy textured mountain ranges), but not many seem to otherwise...

More importantly though:

What's 'your voice' on the matter.

Woah!  I had to squint, but that's cool they actually tell you the VA's name. 

*squeeeeeaaalll* x)

Mary Elizabeth did like ALL the sexy ladies in 2000's anime, and I always thought she had a soothing voice and kinda wanna use her voice "for old time's sake"....
But Kira Buckland really won me over for Edna in Zestiria...

Ideally I'd do two playthroughs (uh oh, I'm setting myself to be disappointed by the game at this rate aren't I?).  I'd love to control a fella the next playthrough and make it "Shulk Time".

*sigh* I need to remember never to go the Gamefaqs board for this game again. I wanted to waste a few minutes while I waited for my breakfast to cool off, and thought it would be a good idea to check out what topics were being discussed. Five seconds later I am head desking over the plethora of topics over how people are boycotting the game over the lack of skimpy jail bait and a bust slider. I officially hate the fandom for this game (or at least this vocal minority). >.>

Ironically, those fans with allegally "better" standards and priorities are in many cases worse than those who are displeased with the changes and are perfectly fine with their loli fanservice or the customization maniacs that want their bust slider. There's also the whole thing with perception and context, but that's a very messy subject.

More than any of that though, the issue for the longest time has been Nintendo's misguided family friendly image in the West and a league of insufferable fans making excuses for them. Is as simple and as annoying as that.

TBH though I'm not nearly as invested in hating on censorship 'on principle' though... I don't always agree with it, but I've yet to see any from of it that has 'ruined' the core concept, message, themes, and most importantly, actual gameplay itself of a title to be upset by it.

^ Most of her outfits are wonderful.  The clipping, on the other hand... D:
Still lovely!  I oddly like her personality, too.

Good news, PC players!
60 fps unlocked!
Here's a video of it.  Hot damn it looks very nice.
