I got a lot to fit into my life these days, games are a "backseat priority" (meaning, I gotta focus on school, work, and hobbies, and while gaming is completely unnecessary to those, I *love* gaming -- so I make time for it).  I don't have time to be stuck on puzzles for like a half hour, ain't nobody got TIME for that, so I use a FAQ when things aren't obvious or really random sidequests or if a game doesn't really explain what to do next very well.

Or if I just don't care.  If the game is average but I wanna get through it (i.e., Ni no Kuni), then I'll use a FAQ because the game is boring me and I just wanna know how to move on.

CLOSE ass meteor in Russia from the other day.  Russian drivers are crazy, and everyone had a dash cam to capture it.

Really amazing.  Yodes, you on this?

Also, the two best Die Hard movies are the first one and the Fifth Element.

Awesome

Forget actors, Luc ("Lube") Besson is on my "celebrity DO list".

I watched Clueless.  WOW!  Haha this movie is jokes, I was expecting something horrible, and the worst parts of every teen-chick flick, but there's a subtle and quick humour that's extremely satirical and borderline brilliant (though I wouldn't go that far -- at the very least, the movie is perfectly memorable, a great 90s, Cali-girl version of what "Mean Girls" set out to do I think works here).

In her large California mansion is a painted portrait of her late mother, and Cher says: "Wasn't my mom a total Betty? She died when I was young. A freak accident during a routine liposuction."

Eugh...sorry Bytor. 

Rogue Galaxy was one of those rare games I played that I knew I didn't and wouldn't like in the first ten minutes.  I played it for a few hours, but the opinion didn't change.  I got this with Dragon Quest games too.
6336  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently watched Episodes of TELEVISION BOX offerings! on: February 15, 2013, 12:29:10 PM
The Office -- A one hour episode that they clearly had trouble filling in the time with.  Eugh, y'know, I was ok with M. Scott's departure for the first season, but with continuous disappointment, I consider the parts of the show that he was the Dunder Mifflin manager as canon and the rest taking place in some alternate reality.  They're focused on closing off plot lines.  Dwight and Angela, Jim and Pam (which is becoming more exhausting because neither are reconcilable), Toby and....the Scranton Strangler?? From like a few seasons back???  Huh.  Comepletely out of left field, but I've come to love Oscar for his sensible nature and occasional ability to bring up some great scenes.

Community -- you can tell the same people aren't involved with this season.  Ahbed gets the quote of the year, "I remember when this show used to be about a Community College".  It speaks volumes.  ACtually...

Archer -- ...kinda feels like this too, it's gotten a bit wacky and it lacks the same laughs it used to because the ISIS staff is becoming head-in-ass retarded.

Parks and Rec --  I do like the show seems to have found a proper villain for once.  The episode was pretty good though, silly and sweet.  I feel bad for Andy though.

Elementary -- I really like this show.  Good mystery!  It's less ostentatious than the BBC one, but contains some of the common cop drama of an American series.  The blend works though.

I also watched the First episode of "The Newsroom".  I'm mixed.  It's got a TON of potential, but I think it touts itself as being a bit smarter than it is... it's hard to explain it.  I also find politically driven material really hard to push and a tad irritating, even if it is well-meaning and makes good arguments.  I might stick with it, the cast is great, and the performances perfect -- the content, even if provoking, may be less so.  I thought, better than the epic speech in the first episode, the aftermath where the school sues for "psychological distress" or something was what *screamed* "modern day" America to this Canadian alien. ;)

New trailer is up with some snazzy fashionable clothing store music.  I'm kinda digging Motoko's new look the more I see it (I really started to loath the leggings, bathing suit, and leather jacket look from the animu).

Everyone is a bit younger, nice to see Aramaki with hair color.

Not an update post.
I think it's good I warn this because I like reviving topics and building hope.

If you are an avid video game paraphernalia collector... I *highly* recommend the Ayesha artbook.  I like the artwork for Atelier Ayesha much more than Kashida Mel's work for the Roro/Toto/Meru.  It's less soft and pretty, but a lot more fun and I think it suits the Atelier-world better.

Also a *big* round of applause to their graphic team, there are a bunch of (presumably) in-game advertisements that take common motifs and themes from early 20th century advertisements.  Worth it~

Skies of Arcadia's only real flaw is the battle system. Near the end of the game, battles take forever.

The Poké Noir is pretty amazing

I'd like Animal Crossing a lot more if the NPC interaction was more substantial. For a game that at least on the surface is so heavily based on helpin' out yr neighbors, they're pretty boring to talk to, shucks!!

That's kinda what put me off too.  Maybe I just didn't invest myself or enough time into it.  Maybe I'll giver it another go????

I feel like it should be a law for games: if there's gonna be lotsa dialogue, plz make it interesting.  The amount of cutscenes I skip these days is pretty high.

I'm not entirely sure a large pepperoni pizza can in fact feed a family of four anymore.

It can.  But is anyone really satisfied with just two slices (eventhoughthatsprobablyallyouSHOULDeat).

Hmm.  I remember my crazy diet days, fuck, I lasted on really little food.  It worked, I'm sure my body took a hit though.  I'd do stuff like cereal breakfast, wait 8 hours with tiny piece of fruit in between, then two slices of pizza (or whatever dinner).  Not nutritious, but by calorie levels, I'm sure I kept under the 2,000 mark easily.

These days, studying in uni, if I don't eat then my brain won't let me study.

...where was I?

Whaaat

Episode 5 was probably the funniest.  It lacked "real" plot-driven content, but probably got the most chuckles out of me.  Gonna watch Ep 6 tomorrow though. so I'll see if I agree or just generally hate everything about your opinion (I actually thought 4 was pretty weak).

Meanwhile, Spring Anime Chart is up.  ... I'm just gonna wait for word of mouth before I try these titles though. >__>
6344  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Skies of Arcadia Legends vs. Rogue Galaxy on: February 15, 2013, 01:25:59 AM
there is one going off on ebay for roughly 50.... maybe i should jump on it...

I saw a $60 for a used on Amazon... still I wanna grab it.

I heard they're making an HD one.... why no new info?????  WHAT A TEASE D:

Obv.  Skies for sure, even if the game gets repetitive and too easy by the end (You can easily buy full HP recovering items by the end of the game).

Now, since we ALL know Skies: FEENA or AIKA?

I love the obnoxious use of voice samples.

Maribelle: My flower died, can you talk to it Henry? [voice: Aww]
Henry: Nope, only living things [voice: SO LONG SUCKER].

Tharja: So [voice: Pretty much]
Gaius: What? [voice: Yuup]

Avatar: ... [voice: Hey].

I think it would have been better to voice it all (especially major cutscenes), or just do the classic "Zelda-style grunts".

I'm also trying to finally level up Donnel, the simple'tard.  The only way I found it possible was when I forged his bronze spear like crazy, then he finally became somewhat effective.  I hear he's a tank later on though.
