Did you try the Atelier series ? I first gave them a chance this gen and I had a lot of fun with Atelier Rorona, Totori and Meruru.

I'm surprised we've had no mention of Ayesha... shame, cuz it sounds like it got rid of the crappier parts of the Arland [?] series.

Everyone hear the vocal version of Terra's theme song (ff6)??
I should have added this when we talked about it -- anyways, I actually thought it was a nice rendition.

I'm going to go home after all that, take off all my clothes

Was there more to that post?

(Btw welcome to miderms)

I just found out I have three weeks of vacation in December. \(^^)/
Scuba diving!

I had some editing troubles, changed what I wrote, deleted, forgot to put back, posted, and you caught it.  Haha
But year, seriously.  Good news about midterms is a lot of games come out around them, specifically Assassin's Creed and Res 6 which involve lots of killing as an outlet for exam frustration. :D

The Office: new ep was pretty good; I liked seeing a Pam and Jim centric episode (which we got barely any of the last season), and them with a conundrum I'm sure every couple has at least once.  The English broad has lingered too much, and I didn't get Andy and Erin's plot --or at least it was better without Andy meddling like the annoying tit he is.  Definitely feels like this season is gonna try to wrap up a lot of characters into a happy ending.

Elementary:  Not bad!  Joining the fray of Sherlock Holmes-related adaptions is one with a female Watson ("Joan" Watson, played by the very foxy Lucy Liu), and taking place in NYC.  One thing that bothered me about the Guy Ritchie flicks and the BBC adaptions was how Sherlock....kinda became a caricature; a joke, something that was easy and fun to exaggerate.  The first time you see Benedict Cumberbatch is him thrashing a corpse like an angry cat (stupid analogy, but the dude seriously looks like a cat); while Robert Downy is seen in drag and drinking eye medicine.  It is fun -- and I *love* it for what it is; but I still liked this version as a more sombre, serious look at the characters.  It still has its sense of fun and has its crazy deduction (less imagery heavy than both of the UK productions), but the first episode was better than I thought it'd be for a series riding the coat-tales of Sir Arthur's books.  It was slow to start, but I'll keep watching this to see where it goes.  I'm wondering if they're gonna play on the "bromance" of John and Sherlock with an actual romance... seems like an excuse to do so at least.

Veep: I love the cast and I love the awkward situations of the USA VP office.  Great show, short seasons.  I especially love the look into "political correctness" and how serious press is to people of high-authority -- how much they have to spin even minor incidents, and of course, how much shit talking goes on when the cameras aren't looking.  Julia Louis Dreyfus has aged freaking brilliantly too, she's not bad to look at for a 50 year old, and I love a woman who can handle herself in a comedy when usually the spotlight is on men in these shows to do that.

New Girl:  I love this show; nothing too terrible happens and it's got a great sense of humor.  New season is back in full form, and Schmidt breaking through as a stand out character on the show.

Meanwhile, on the otherside of Lard's perfect world is Dice's.

Next week:
A Presentation,
A Seminar,
A Paper,
And a Paper.

Then I'm going to go home after all that, take off all my clothes, dip in the tub for an hour in hot water, and lie in bed with a hot chocolate.  Then spend the night playing Res Evil 6???

Is it good?
6322  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Resident Evil 6 on: September 27, 2012, 11:31:19 PM
Its so obviously focused on co-op that it barely feels like I should be playing this solo

Speaking I have NO interest in this game except for co-op play... I'm really happy to see this. :)

I'd probably turn lesbian for that kinda cheddar.

Still kinda sad I guess.

Ah well, pretty Asian lady inside, Yoda, click.

Tales of Eternia is UK-only, but if you like Tales games, it has some of the best music and combat in that series.

Combat? Questionable (Reid really does all the work, and I think Max and Chat were last minute additions since only their final skills are worth it).
Music?  Definitely a soft spot for it there.

ToE was awesome portable gaming as well.

Was FFT-0 pitched at all?
If you have a JPN PSN account, just look at the amount of stuff there you could potentially buy.
I doubt I'd go to Japan for the games since I can't really understand it -- but for fashion and accessories or cool ass toys I'd go crazy.

And how, for the longest time I've divided the discs...
Disc 1: School Rivalry and Plots
Disc 2: B-- Witches
Disc 3: Space
Disc 4: Time

Maybe that's a part of the reason I can never remember the story line, I wouldn't know where to start or what to say.  WTF was the Lunar Cry about and why weren't people more terrified of their moon and why did scientists never work out the physics of how hordes of monsters make its way to Earth from their moon??

Good idea; depending on the price point, may be a good chance to play one, beat two, and join hating the ending in three.

You gotta say the full thing.  Everytime.

And Eggs Benedict is the shit.

I couldn't help picturing it after... it was weird.

The only thing weird was you picturing it.

Yeah. I mean, come on, he's the Norse equivalent of Zeus. Well okay, he's not THAT promiscuous, but still, there is a reason why he's referred to as the "All-Father".

He's like a football player amongst kids - he's ten times the size of everyone else... how can you NOT picture it?!

Lots of Kirby...
Kirby 20th Anniversary Collection:
-- GB titles are terribly dry.  Classic or not, they're tough to really chew into -- first game didn't even have abilities, so easy to kinda put off.
-- Kirby's Adventure for the NES was an amazing title, even for its time, even now... but this version lags when "too many" 2D animations are going off...or just the spark ability going off... so that's a bit of an issue.
-- Kirby Super Star is fantastic and a classic and favorite in my list of "top games evar".  One odd thing is that there is no button to get rid of your ability, you have to make a partner and kill him off or just let him live.  Anyways, still one of my favorite games, I think it's love.
-- Kirby's Dreamland 3 is fantastic, but ultimately I think it really suffers stiff controls hampering quality gameplay.  Rick the Hamster and Chuchu sucks.  Love the "added objectives" of collecting Heart Stars.
-- Kirby 64 is also amazing.  Some abilities are just a mistake, some are so much fun, and some are just game breakers.  What upsets me with a game like this is it feels too short for all the abilities you can toy with; I guess that's a reason for having three shard a stage to help you vary it up.  The bosses really took a level in hard too, but I love that there is always a creative way to use an ability for a few of them.

I'm so so sad Amazing Mirror didn't make this list -- if there's any 3DS title worth download on the Virtual Console, it's this one.  I wanna take a star off this Anni Collection just for omitting this one.. I wanna take another star off for changing basic controls between titles.

I also was feeling this pink vibe and got Kirby's Return to Dream Land.  I'm so, so sad I ignored it for so long -- it's a lot of fun.  It's on the easy side, but it's really great to see a game that goes back to more Super Star like game play.
