Speaking of....

Trails of Cold Steel

- Finished chapter 3!
- If I play one more JRPG with a line of dialogue saying something about "monsters behaving strangely" I'm going to scream.
- When I first got to the Highlands they were my favorite location in the game thus far. By day 3 I never wanted to visit them again. It was a miracle I had the patience to get the S rank and other collectibles that involved running all the way back to Zender Gate multiple times.
- This series is way too good at getting you attached to negligible NPCs you probably won't encounter outside their particular chapter and I haven't decided if that's a good thing or a bad thing.
- I like Rean's character a lot. I also like Alisa's character a lot. I still think they make a terrible pairing. I can't quite put my finger on it, but it just doesn't feel like they were written with a romance in mind, making the whole tease the game puts on feel really forced.

Wait... what was Tidus' ORIGINAL outfit if that's his alt?

DRAGON QUEST HEROES
------------------------------------

Mostly just messing around trying to get my bearings after not playing for so long. Turns out I was in the middle of grinding for money to afford equipment, which is a good explanation as to why I stopped playing. Already getting back in the groove quickly enough though.

Didn't play for very long, though. I did find myself playing better as Bianca than I did before quitting, which was a little strange, but I guess that's better than being worse.

I actually quickly did get the money I needed for that equipment and moved on to the second half of the Chapter 3 field study. Did the optional quest with the Erabonia Lesson and nailed it on my first try, again despite not playing for a while.


Sounds like the boys need to reconsider their tactics before they try again.

I can't believe you said those things to me though Klutz. *sniff*

You know what you did.


ONE MORE NOTE: Apparently I've had my Wii running (like, fully on, not in sleep mode) since the last time I played it which I'm pretty sure was over 6 months ago. I'm shocked the thing is still functional. Though I'm not sure I'll be able to say the same thing about my Xenoblade disc that was in there.

Guess I might be alone, but I will get this before I get FFXV.

As long as we have Chinese Vampires competing in the High Jump, I think it will be a success.

And of course Missing Link Weightlifting (I really think the Yetis have it this year, though I've heard the Sasquatches are trying a new training regimen)

I'm not sure where they were going with Laphicet. I didn't even recognise that as Richard outfit at first.


I initially thought it was a gender swapped Elise costume.

Rabid Mesh is a scenario I don't want to try and imagine.

Odin Sphere complete! Got all the scenes, but I'm probably not going to bother going for the platinum. Not at the moment, anyway.

On to trying and get through the rest of Trails of Cold Steel before the sequel makes its way over here. That is, if I can pull myself away from Twin Saga as of tomorrow.

Anyway, sudden interest in old Koei strategy games so... idk might dabble in Pokemon Conquest or something.

I'd be interested to hear about that one as it comes and goes from my radar.
26  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: August 07, 2016, 01:43:38 PM
Fucked up in Odin Sphere, realized too late what was going on and ended up getting the bad ending. Will finish the game with the true ending tomorrow morning.

I think the IOC can be summed up by the fact that they sent a warning to the POPE for using their sacred Rio2016 hashtag on Twitter without explicit consent.

Final Fantasy Mobius

FF Mobius is a sub-par, bog standard, battle-after-battle-with-some-collection-aspect-thrown-in mobile RPG which on the surface seems to offer something new but instead is just another shallow mobile experience with such mobile RPG tropes as pay walls (allegedly, I didn't play more than two stages before feeling exasperated) , soul-sucking leaderboards, and every classic mobile RPG trapping you can think of.

tl;dr it's shite.




I apologize for wasting a thread just to share my disappointment in this experience, but I'm just so damn tired of Square's mobile offerings. I'm always willing to go to bat for the mobile market, but Square Enix has the imagination and budget to create truly unique experiences on mobile devices (proven by their amazing GO franchise), but instead they just keep selling out their best licenses to generic bullshit.

And I'm just tired of it.

I've had gray in my beard since I could grow hair on my face.  That's a lot easier to ignore than the receding hairline (I comb it to the side now) and the bald spot (it's small enough that I can still fake it, but that won't last forever).

At some point I know I'm just going to have to shave it, but 31 is NOT that point.

I just keep my hair short enough that my bald spot looks intentional.

At 23 I had a giant bald spot already, so screw all y'all.
