Okay, let's meditate.

*closes eyes* "Okay Greig...time to meditate....yep...meditating now...emptying my mind. Oh god why can't I empty my mind. Everyone is going to think I can't meditate. Just stay still and pretend you're totally in the zone. Gosh this is a long time. Just a peek, yep, only one not meditating. Okay Greig, You Can Do This. Your so relaxed, you don't beleive how relaxed you are...you have a lot of dishes back home. Oh and you left the PS2 on. Jade Cocoon 2 is such a great game, I can't wait til I'm back home playing that. Maybe I can leave and no one will notice. Nah that won't work. Back to mediating. I'm hungry. What can I make for dinner tonight - oh yeah you just got that new vegetable spiralizer off Amazon. Maybe something to do with that..."

My experience with meditation when pressured by people to try it.

I've recently taken over the job of forum managing here. Part of that is approving the new members. If I've fucked up and let a spammer through could people use the report button so I see it? Still getting used to being a detective. Danke! :)

Somebody used the report button to report this post as a test.  I got the email.  Did you?

I did - I always get them. :P

Well played, reporter. Well played.

*red flashing alarm and sirens*

My boyfriend hasn't seen Buffy The Vampire Slayer yet. We are now watching it on Netflix.

Just finished the two pilot episodes, they are so cheesey and pilot-y I was scared he would like it but he ended up saying "That was terrible! I love it!"

So ... I guess that's a victory? The next episode is "Witch" which is  a pretty good episode if I remember right. It's been years since I saw Buffy myself so it's fun watching again.

Haha, agree to disagree? In my eyes the only contender is mint.

Strawberry and chocolate is an abomanation though.

Well, I promised a dessert the last time I posted so here we go.

Tonight I made Orange Chocolate Cupcakes! Complete with wedge of chocolate orange.

I'd care more about a chance of Jessie getting revived than Aeris.

I fail to see how either of those things relate to your poop eating habits.

For reals though, Ive been thinking about bring the Quiz back in some form, but I'm not sure how yet. The old way was too hectic and as Annubis said, lack of interest. Some quizes had only one person show up and thus they won by default - I was putting in a lot of work for little pay out, but I don't blame them for not turning up - the whole premise was too obtuse to take part in easily. Ideally I'd like perhaps a Podcast Gameshow type thing. That struggles with participation though, how many people could I get to feasibly do that, and also show up on time, also connection issues, blah blah. Not to mention people who just don't like being in the spotlight. It's an idea I've thought about for a while, but I don't know what the interest would be like. All I know is the old way of doing things was the Wild Wild West of quizzes.

As for Wild Arms 2 - I might play that on my Let's Play channel instead.

I'm not doing a 100% run, but I mostly mean that some of the cooler accessories are impossible to get. A simple mistake in chapter 1 locks you out of a great accessory in chapter 5 - that kinda thing. It's a little stressful.

@Arvis: Yeah - maybe this will be the game where i get all the Blue Bullets!

@Dice: Songstress IS good...for a couple of abilities. The rest feel like mostly filler. This game does stress me the hell out though, I don't necessarily WANT a 100% run, but so much shit is lost if you don't do everything EXACTLY right at just the right time. I've just taken the talk to everyone all the time approach.

STARMONGOOSE IS TOO BEAUTIFUL AND WONDERFUL AND MAKES EVERYONE ELSE LOOK BAD BY COMPARISON.

No ones done anything to incite my wrath, don't worry bout it.

I just think there are better ways to go about it - it has potential for good discussion, but when we start dishing out attacks on peoples character for just having a different opinion to us, then we aren't doing ourselves justice or putting up arguments worth discussing.

And therein lies a subtopic- either not liking something, or "closet liking" something because of an insufferable fanbase.  There are plenty of things I like but am hesitant to admit to liking because I don't want to be labeled as "Oh, you're one of them."  That's not fair.  

I'm sure I've recycled that topic several times over the years.  

We all know you play those boobie games, Neal. Everyone knows, it's okay - we love you anyway.

It's not worth taking a hardline stance on it right now, but I'm keeping my eye on this thread.

Let's all remember having an unpopular opinion doesn't give you the right to call people who share the popular opinion dumb/childish etc.

I mean, a little bit of my soul dies every time you guys call FFIX bad, but I don't get salty about it.

I just hover my mouse over the "Ban this user" button for a few seconds until the feeling passes.

This is a little too negative for my tastes, so I'm not gonna join in on my opinions of games that are popular for reasons I don't understand. I just had a little thought while scrolling through Aeolus's comment and felt like sharing it.

Regarding the enemy variety in FFX, I agree you see the same enemy repeatedly, but I think it's an interesting subject regarding game design and clarity through design choices.

Most RPGs do it to some extent, if the enemy is red they usually absorb fire and are weak to water/ice (Does not apply to SMT), but almost every enemy in FFX has a clear weakness and you can understand that weakness just through looking at it and taking the appropriate action. If it's a bee or a small bird, let Wakka throw a ball at it, if it's a flan or an elemental let Lulu throw magic at it, if it's scaly or has a shell, let Auron hit it. If it's fucking huge let Yuna summon an Aeon. You get that rundown at Besaid at the start of the game and it remains true for the entire thing, and it's kinda cool in my opinion. How many enemies in FF7,8,9 etc actually felt like they HAD weaknesses at all? Most random encounters took roughly the same damage from all sources apart from some exceptions.

Not important, just thought I would share a little thought - continue. :P
