This is my third semester at this school. I think it's a matter of taking two classes this semester vs. 1 class the last two, but it's still pretty asinine.

Except it has literally never happened before. Every other time they would use however much of the loan was needed to cover the total cost of the semester. And if anything was left over after that, it would either be deducted from the loan or carried over to the following semester.

Maybe Mesh is trapped in a Truman Show style dome and he just found an exit but passed it up.

EDIT: The payment for my classes this semester is most likely going to be processed late because the school just assumed half of my loan was for this semester and half for next semester.

So they only applied half the loan which only covered half my bill.

Really ought to start referring to general problem solving skills as uncommon sense.

Trails of Cold Steel really gets under my skin sometimes. Love the story, love the characters, love the combat... but as a completionist the structure just pisses me off. Spent hours in chapter 4--up to 68 in total for the game--making absolutely sure I talked to everyone and visited everywhere between every single event and I still wound up missing something and getting an A instead of an S. Since this already happened to me once before in Chapter 2, I'm not too shook up over it, but it still is just a reminder to how irritating the game's structure truly is.

One good thing came out of today, at least. Before leaving for work I bought Rabi-Rabi on Steam since it was on sale. Played a bit tonight and it is already a stellar game. I didn't realize just how much I was in the mood for a good Metroidvania game until I started playing this. My favorite part (as echoed in the user reviews) are the bullet-hell inspired boss fights. I'm playing on normal and the difficulty curve is so perfect that I feel like by the end of it I might actually be willing to check out some legitimate bullet hell shmups.

Had a horrible day today.

Got out of work thinking it was over.

Was very, very wrong.

I know I say it a lot but HOLY HELL am I tired of life.

The first boss of the field study in Chapter 4 of Trails of Cold Steel has found its way to the top of my "most frustrating boss fights" list. Every enemy before it was falling without putting up a fight, and then that thing shows up and it keeps getting chances to cast Ragna Vortex--essentially a death sentence for the party--instantly with no cast time. Died three times thanks to poor luck re: turn order, and when I did finally beat him, sure enough it was only ever so slightly tougher than the trash mobs I fought to get to it.

In bizarro world news, Gal Gun is coming to Steam this month

Niche JRPG* is getting ported to Steam is "bizarro world" news?

* using the term loosely, of course.

Recently wrapped up Psych. Loved all 8 seasons. The finale was a great finish.

Yeah, it's a silly and somewhat stupid show, but what separates it is that it knows it's silly and stupid. It runs with its ridiculousness. What also really helps is that the two main actors, Roday and Hill, have excellent on screen chemistry. Really helps to make their characters' lifelong friendship feel more believable. Roday had an effective way of making Shawn just annoying enough at times. Just when you are about to get irritated with his silliness and immaturity, it gets dialed back at the right time. All of the main characters are lovable in their own way, and in a way, I'll miss them.
Gotta give props to the writers, who managed to keep the show fresh throughout its run. Naturally, some episodes failed to live up to the standard (to be expected when there are over 100 of them), but overall, the series stayed strong. Good stuff.

I love Psych and I'm ashamed I've only watched 6 of the 8 seasons. Will definitely have to rewatch it all at some point.

While looking for a guild in Twin Saga, I met some of the anime fans that Tomara was talking about trying to avoid at conventions. Completely agree, those kids have a really loose and obnoxious grasp on reality.

See, now I liked the atmosphere in Persona 3 the first time I played it, but after playing Persona 4 and going back to P3, it felt a little too dreary to me.

Which just proves Yoko Shimomura is the best because she knows you can have the best of both worlds!

Time for a long overdue update!


God is this game fun. I spent an my daily hour today just learning about the gathering and crafting systems and I'm not even mad because there was so much to it all. Nothing about the game is complicated, difficult, or "hardcore," but there's so much to it I think I'm going to be sticking with this for a long time to come. My main level is 31 so far and my class level is only 12 because I just unlocked the Hunter class, which is the one I want to mainline for end game content.


I'm surprised it only took me one try to get through that third stage in the Shrine of Scales. The switching door mechanic was basically useless at that point, and the only thing that saved me from the last wave was the fact that all 4 party members had max tension and I was able to spam each Coup de Grace and finish off the two Archdemons and one Killer Machine that had the poor Goddess Statue down to a sliver of durability. Then the boss on the next level managed to kick my ass on my first try, but then I remembered bosses have weak points and was able to take him down the second try. The surprise second boss was thankfully much easier, and even with my health in the yellow from the get-go, I was still able to take him down quickly.


This one seems to be less about the songs and more about the modules. Still just the same 30 songs, but I have about as many modules as there was in Project Diva 2nd and the game says I'm only at 30%. Which is cool, I guess, but man is it disappointing to have so few songs with such a high percentage of Miku songs.


Barely just started it before heading to work, but really getting back into it already. Graphics feel even more dated now, but it's hard to ignore just how cute Recette's sprite is. That little animation from the intro where she's making the shop sign is pretty much the most adorable thing ever.

So it sounds like Crunchyroll and Funimation are *basically* merging without going through the legal rigamarole of actually merging. Even if this results in a price hike, it can only be good news for any anime fan.

Well there is something to be said for simple melodies you can get stuck in your head and hum along to in the shower.
