The Radiant Historia playthrough goes smoothly now.  I do find the combat system a bit tedious in certain battles, but I suppose that applies to most turn-based RPGs.

I find turn based *extermely* tedious; I respect Radiant and stuff like the Persona series that try to add a spin to it.

I beat Prof Layton and the Miracle Mask.  *VERY* clean ending, everything wrapped up without a single problem and all too perfectly; the story wasn't very crafty this time around, but I liked their little "preview" about what the next game will be about.  This game reminds me a bit of Kingdom Hearts too; story-wise, you're in it for the "grand finale" that tells the most story with the smallest amount of beating-round-the-bush.  Essentially, everything leads to that moment since the revelations during the mid-game segments add up to nothing grand.

I knew Randall was alive after like the first or second time you meet him... His "death scene" was really tragic, certainly brought back the emotional punch that The Unwound Future did.  Randall falls to his supposed death, Layton figures out the final door and see mountains of treasure but feels nothing since he just lost his friend for it... No riches in the world can bring back a lost friend. ;__; .   
I liked the bits with the ancient civilizations though, loved the top-down perspective "puzzle dungeon" and the puzzles in general were grand.  Some of the repeats were tedious though, and I don't really like the puzzles that rely on a drawn picture (some being nothing short of ambiguous with what's being depicted).

^ Yeah, I loved how Braid made obsession extremely ironic.  The "final battle" played in reverse gave me the chills.

Tales of the Abyss has cloning blues as a theme.

And like I said before, VLR made me sad when I realized I wouldn't find so crafty and creepy a story for a while (probably not until ZE3 is out).

Hell, even Steiner and Beatrix.

FFIX was all about sweet, sappy love stories. 

I thought the Stein/Bea thing was perfect.  A small bonus because Beatrix had an amazing theme song.

IIRC the new black ones do not.

Goose, is everyone unfriendly over there?

If Harry Potter is any indication of the English-speaking North, then it seems that way.  I think all of 5 people in that cast of 200 were nice.  Everyone else was varying degrees of jerky.  Star would be one of the good guys.

Yodes, you get a 'partment?

Ever have a video or image or joke that's funny, and it circles around for being funny before it's just kinda ...forgotten?
But then it can come back and you remember all the reasons it was good in the first place and love it all over?

YUP!

This isn't directly related but there's an Adam Sandler movie about him playing Shadow of the Colossus that helps him deal with his depression after 9/11, but for the life of me I can't remember the name, I'm sorry.

Reign Over Me.

So here's my nightmare... the night before a project is due and I can't fucking access the internet for 5 hours.  Late night.  I'm glad it's back up, but it's still working like ass.

6506  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: November 25, 2012, 10:31:08 PM
So....stupid f'ing drunk driver rear ended us while we were stopped at a stop light, hopefully damage is cosmetic but the way the rear end looks I'm afraid the frame is bent, luckily we're OK and the dumb bitch got to spend the night in jail. Stupid people.

I'm just glad you're ok.  Drunk driver accidents can go a *lot* worse.  Hopefully you're not paying anything drastic and insurance has ya covered.

Today was busy, and now I do project.  B@()#@#*^@%&%!.

^Good luck with all that, sir.

Today I saw a pair of $400 shoes I absolutely loved (now if I had the money for it is a different story).  I feel like less of a tomboy than ever this year.  My mum's probably proud and sad that it meant a wardrobe change and $$$ being spent.

On that note, today at work, a customer handed me a black and metal American Express card.  ...yeah.  *It*.  I don't think I'll ever own one unless I can charm the pants off some CEO.  But I also don't know if I'll ever see one of these mythical cards again (unless I completely missed that they'd become ubiquitous or easier to get at some point... or there are just more rich people)..

Been playing Persona 4, the vanilla version not the Ponyboy version. I'm bound and determined to actually beat it this time. I'm nearing the 2nd to last dungeon and trying to finish up all the party member S-links. Every time I play this game I'm so amazed by how stylish the presentation is. The transparent silhouettes of the main characters on the main menu blows my mind every time.

I thought the menu screen was the coolest fucking thing on the planet; probably tied with the 1 second FMVs that played in FF13's menu (and then proceeded to forget about that milestone in the second installment).

Tokay island sucked balls.  It's not bad when you know what to do... but I'm all new-age-y now and I can't stand Link's general walking speed in those old games.  I'll give you that.  Goron dancing I barely remember, but I remember having a save stuck at that part for a bit.... oh... that and in Seasons where that fucker has to repair the Balance Stone (or whatever) and needs to have a minecart en route to crashing into it while enemies come at you.... that was the weirdest and stupidest thing a game has had to ask you to do.

I never bothered with the 4th bottle in OoT... 3 is usually enough and I'm no completionist.

Speaking of Link

URL says it all, I thought this was a nice gesture.  Kinda wish they do it more with "blank slate" characters.  I'm sick of playing as a dude, though I never really understood the "it makes *you* the lead!" angle of silent characters.
