By most accounts you're creating a better story than FFXIII-2 has anyway.

More natural than "It's by turn to change the future...!".

I gotta start catching up on PS3 titles.  A lot of the early stuff is around $10 -- defnitely worth a small splurge.

Sounds good. It'll be like brunch, only less mimosas and more complaining about life and how the men our lives treat us like dirt. We're worth so much more!

"We really should do this more often, huh?" I said as I had a sip of my espresso and ate a few leaves of my chicken caesar salad.

Fuck my life, was super excited to get ffxiii-2 tuesday morning. Now I'm stuck working 9 til possibly 9 maybe later depending on how quickly I can mount a 60inch plasma tv by myself. Even tried rescheduling to get tuesday off...no go. Sadface.exe :(

I'm in the same boat.  Wednesday.  Probably won't eve be playing it that day or the next.... fuck my life.

Let's go complain and moan in grief together.
Can't, working that day and the day after. Can I take a raincheck?

S'all good... I'm studying my ass off for midterm.  Occasional moaning/grieving PMs? :P

Anyways, something I didn't look at in here, but are you stuck using shitty motion controls ala every fucking terrible wii game ever? Gotta say, if so, will not be running to play this as fast as I thought. Better yet, can you use a gamecube controller to play?

The game doesn't use motion even if you DO use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, and the GC isn't supported nor would it honestly be a good idea, all four shoulder buttons and the Back button are used so they would've needed to make a third control scheme to accommodate it, not to mention that if you hate that little, somewhat out of the way D-Pad on the GC controller you'd be stuck with it for Arts selection. Some like the Wii Remote + Nunchuk setup best, but if you'd still prefer a standard controller than just get a Classic Controller Pro for this.
Okay glad you cleared that up. Glad I bought my sister that classic controller for her wii...that I bought her as well.

Also, I just read that article. Really, you bought that article as legit. Chu chu breeding and arena? Cmon, if you played a xeno game you can't be that gullible.

I agree. It should have been plainly obvious that the article was false.

Thanks Lucca!

Is it looka or lucka?

Looka! Just like Chrono Trigger's Lucca!

Given the fact the game came out when voice acting wasn't an option... it is a good question.  I'm mostly happy we pronounce it the same then too haha

I hated when people said "Tee-dus" for FFX's "Tide-us"/(Titus). 

Pronunciations are fun.

Infamous is probably the PS3 exclusive series I most want to play but haven't. How is #1?


I've been playing 999. It's fun, but after the 1st room it's much too damn slow. My whole commute was reading text.

Don't worry, you get two puzzle room consecutively after (just finished the 2nd, here's hoping for more puzzle fun).

I went with Snake and Seven.  Good lot!  I feel we're smart.  I like the witty dialogue that occasionally pipes in when re-clicking stuff.

I already know the peeps I'm fishy of (er, more than others).

I bought Hybrid Heaven (n64) from a disc replay for $3

The game has TURNED BASED MELEE COMBAT

Sounds ballin. :O

I have to visit Fan at work... Clearly, not busy and I have a shit load of studying. Being here makes me mad and sad, especially when people buy bad games (not saying that subjectively, people keep pre-ordering Soul Cal V). 

Singing to pass time too, unfortunately as well, Moves Like Jagger was on the radio en route and it's been stuck since in my head

http://www.joystiq.com/2012/01/28/final-fantasy-xiii-2-review-fixing-the-past/

Joystiq's review.  A good one too, and I think very important in terms of the "Final Fantasy series" in general.

"Ultimately, if Final Fantasy XIII took the series five steps back, Final Fantasy XIII-2 takes it one hesitant step forward. Features like non-linear dungeons, optional side quests and NPC-populated towns are wonderful and all, but they were RPG staples twenty years ago. While Final Fantasy XIII-2 does quite a bit to fix the mistakes of its predecessor, it does very little to stand out on its own merits. It's enjoyable, but it's also disappointing in many ways. Final Fantasy deserves better."

Ive heard the other tracks, and they werent memorable. I think it just blew me away how they would even make a song like that for final fantasy. The Leona Lewis thing was bad enough but this is like rubbing salt in the wound.
You'd be surprised how much this OST grows on you -- it's a supremely phenomenal effort.

It's better to hear a lot of OSTs in context, I find.

Something about that bread.

Looks like dice be using pita or naan.



Yoda and Leaky Cauldron smell.

I alternate between ketchup and Frank's as a condiment for eggs.
I used to love cooking eggs in the morning but I eat them all the time after I work out so that has kind of corrupted them as a breakfast item for me.

Kind alike what Mesh said earlier (and in another topic), I can only do eggs with things.  I love "conditional" food though haha.
