FYI I received an extra beta key for Twin Saga. If anyone is interested in checking it out, send me a message.

The game is a lot more enjoyable than I thought it would be after I remembered some of X-Legend's previous work. Some of the more interesting features take a fair few levels to unlock, but considering how casual the game is, that just translates to a couple of hours.

I'm driven by compulsions of "not missing out" every single day, so it has always struck me as odd that I've never really understood the drive people have for platinum trophies.

That's not a criticism of people who do, it's just an observation that it goes beyond my current understanding. To me there's such a big difference between seeing everything a game has to offer and getting that platinum trophy or every achievement or whatever. Especially since a lot of achievements require going beyond just experiencing the game in whole and instead require accomplishing feats that, in my opinion, add nothing to the experience.

Do people walk into grocery stores and ask their grocer to find them a fruit from 35 years ago that they couldn't identify by smell or taste or sight or touch?? And then when he/she fails to magically reproduce their random and probably not real memory food be all "fuck you grocery man, I'll get all of my food from the internet from now on!"

No, but they are equally as stupid and rude. Six years in retail has me absolutely burnt out on dealing with people.

Just yesterday I had a woman come in looking for an item that was on sale. She said she looked around and couldn't find it so wanted a raincheck. I told her I thought I remembered seeing it, so let me look around before writing a raincheck. I looked around the store for about five minutes, before finding a stack of two and brought them both up to her. I asked her if she wanted just one, or both.

Her response? "Both, please. And maybe you can write me a rain check for two more."
No gratitude, no sincerity. Just a wretched display of greed and entitlement.

Hell, a couple weeks ago I gave a customer the finger behind his back in front of other customers because he threw his money at me because he had to wait in line for THREE. WHOLE. MINUTES! He literally spent every second from the moment he got in line bitching about how long the one woman in front of him was taking.

A lot of geneticists believe that within 2-3 generations, adults who are not lactose intolerant will be in the minority.

How eerily appropriate.

Might be looking at her "Classic" costume which is a very literal interpretation of her FFVI sprite.

Random Question for anyone into coding: what would be a good language to try learning first? You know, like, something I could build up from, as in it might help me learn other similar languages?

Most colleges I look at require at least 2 years of either Java or C++ as a prerequisite for a graduate degree in CS, so I imagine those are both fine places to start. Most top level coding languages all boil down to the same basic principles, anyway.



In my own haps, I've decided to attempt to watch all of Fringe after all before Netflix drops it on Sept. 11. Really wish I was better at multitasking so I could at least do some level grinding in my various Vita dungeon crawlers while watching.

Wasted my evening working towards catching up on Fringe before watching the final season I never saw. I say wasted because I'm still on season 1 and I just read that Netflix is dropping the show on Sept. 11, and I can't possibly enjoy the show while watching as many episodes a day as I'd need to watch to finish in time.

Honestly, I don't even know why I'm still subscribed to the service with the rate it's been losing shows to Hulu. None of the original shows really appeal to me, anyway. Well, except Kimmy Schmidt.

Y'know, unless the reviews are glowing I probably won't get this anywhere near launch day. I went to watch the latest episode of Brotherhood and then changed my mind when I realized I'm already bored to tears of this world. I can't really put my finger on it other than to say it feels soooooo Final Fantasy, and that particular setting is starting to get stale.

We need another FFIX style change-of-pace to refresh the series.


Will obviously get it eventually, of course, seeing as Her Majesty of Music(tm) wrote the Soundtrack.

All I think of when I hear Holland is the city in Michigan where they hold the Tulip Festival

Disappointing, sure, but hardly astonishing. I mean this is a game that managed to generate 3 years of hype with nary a detail about how the game actually played.

I don't really see the difference between WoFF coming out a month before or a month after FFXV

You know what's incredibly depressing?

Realizing that everyone you know who is successfully doing what they love found that success in their early-to-mid 20s.

Life is BS

Wow, that does suck. I mean, if you're going to do farming events, at least use tokens or something that's a little more guaranteed than random drops. I suppose it's still better than all those collection games that artificially limit event rewards to a handful of users in some kind of PvP fashion, but it still comes across as a way to incentivize more cash spending.

Also that locked-in difficulty sounds like utter bullshit.
