I personally think he's passed his prime from what I've heard.  Mind you, context helps, and can't say I (or anyone) has played FF14, and Last Story is in TBD status.

This has been the worst holiday ever.  I've had no time to myself other than the wee hours of the night that I force myself awake in. D:

But, it's been nice to take care of my brother after the hospital.  I miss our 1-on-1 times. :D

EDIT: THe night got better.  BUt Work today had a reallly curlly and dark hair (um, erp) and a small bottle of medical vaseline to be cleaned up....fuck..  x(

Stella Deus felt like an experiment title.  Good story, good battle, but both felt incomplete, simple, or at least unrefined.  Getting back into that means you're not missing much.


Mass Effect: I suck dick at shooters, and it goes against my "balls to the wall strategy" of just going in, guns blazing.

Tales of Destiny 1: battle, battle, battle, battle.  Random battles + Puzzle solving eventually broke me, and when I did want to replay, couldn't find it no mo'.

DDS2: the final dungeon and secret bosses got way too tough and I lost patience for the incessant random battles and grinding.  But damn I love the game.

Wind Waker: The dungeon with one of the co-stars was a pain in the ass, I hit a wall master room, and triforce treasure hunting annoyed me.  I was younger, so I wanna give this a second go.

A few titles I've had a nasty habit of stopping right before the final boss.. I puss-out or something. I dunno... can't explain.

Wyrdwad, a mod and employee of XSeed just stated at the boards that a digital release seems like the only option lately.  One reason being, "the numbers aren't there", I'm guessing the odd system-platforming issue would be another.

Well, it certainly looks the part....weird chocobo is weird

You kidding me!?  That's awesome!!  You find a hardcore-looking chocobo and it changes to a hardcore theme???  That is funny. :)

Timeline translated, and yes it makes sense.

Yeah, that pic has been spreading like wild fire amongst the Zelda-community.

I ordered the book.  Good thing I didn't second guess myself either... I pre-ordered, I check the next day, and it was sold out.  I wonder if they'll even make an NA-version (which seems pretty rare for books like that to find a proper publication here, but I enjoy a surprise).

Who cares, it's obviously not a track to be taken seriously.  Does anyone know, amongst the two other choco tracks, when it's used.

I'm in D-Rider's "unhappy" camp.  I'm not working it (this year, but I have...loved double-time-and-a-half :D ).

My mom is goddamned retarded.  She takes two of my brother's pain pills that he takes after his surgery, she comes home stoned (she answered the same question I asked her twice that day and took it with surprise), and goes to bed at 3:30 am, and yells at me when she wakes up late and when I point out what she did as being pretty much her fault.  It's like how you can't tell an alcoholic they're an alcoholic without them flipping out/ denying it.  Well, anyways, she's going to be a joy to deal with today.  I love my mum, but it doesn't necessarily mean I "like" her sometimes.

Hopefully everyone else will be better to deal with.  No gifts yet, quite frankly I'd rather just turn in early, I got an 8.5 hour Boxing Day shift tomorrow, and that ".5" is my break. x(

Watching the Ice Age Christmas Special while I ate breakfast... and I admired the irony of celebrating a holiday millions of years in advance before the man in the holiday's name was even born.

Double post but whatever. I think I found out what's going on.
The second season won't be on TV, but it will be streamed.
So we probably have another 12 episodes to look forward to.

That's...kind of weird but okay.

Also, props to the anime for making Mitsuo EVEN CREEPIER than he was in the game. Those goddamn fish eyes... >_<

Snuck. Snook is the past tense of "snake."
Yeah, I didn't like the way that sounded, but I left it anyway. Now I've gone and changed the sentence.
All because of a simple sneaky snook.

Damn snook had bit me once.

The Atelier Series and Mass Effect.

I did try to re-pick up "Dragon Quest"... but it will never happen again.  It failed me.
6388  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Next "Trails" game announced for PSP on: December 23, 2011, 03:26:33 AM
I think the Trails barrier is the massive amount of text.  Probably wouldn't change much :(

A massive barrier of text... that'd take a long time to translate when time is on short supply for a system. This is not an issue for PC, so it'd change plenty. Plus at worst they can get a shot in the arm for translating later games as the game gets in massive Steam sales.

I posed the same point on the uh, official XSeed forums... again, I guess maybe it's because I love playing devil's advocate, but I hate dealing with the "fan" crowd the forums attract sometimes.  Most posted that they'd be more satisfied with a physical release (which is looking more grim by the day).  What became more frightening was the few posts that wanted to see a *physical* PC release. =/  Yikes.

I want a physical release too, of course.  But it doesn't seem like the PSP has much of a future anymore.  Has Squeenix said anything to the release of Type-0 and the platform?

FFXIII-2 isn't even out yet, why are people jumping to conclusions so quickly? Wait a second, it is out in Japan and the reviews say it is awesome. Sounds like a lot of people need to get this chip off their shoulder and get over themselves.

I remember when veteran GameFaqs reviewer AshleyWinchester gave a 7/10 to FF13 when it came out in Japan... no NA player had played it and yet the flames had come out in full force.

*groan* We are going to have to agree to disagree, since I disagree with you still despite your "justifications".
Ghirahim as a story battle is a lame reason to still fight him three times.  For both him and the Imprisoned, I think both could have lost *at least* one battle.

TP may have told you when you earned even the simple 5 rupee piece, but at least all text could be skipped.  Hearing the Tinkerer dude ask me what I need upgraded and to come back 40 times blows ass and I don't think should be chalked up to "it won't change". 

And again, "investments" in items are pointless when the game shells out rupees faster than I could ever hope to earn tuition.

This game was in no way a 90%.  I think reviewers who do give it that high a grade are being disillusioned by the name "Zelda" appearing in the title.  I do think it a remarkable title, especially GIVEN it's change to the series, but not FOR it either.
