I'm going to say something incredibly blasphemous:

I enjoyed the plot of Star Ocean 3. Does it get ridiculous? Yeah, but since when does that automatically make a story bad? Honestly the only reason I don't watch more anime is because I feel like too many take themselves way too seriously. Like, the creators are thinking "This could totally be a live action drama! I mean, disregarding the giant robots and cat girls, of course!" It's why when I do find an anime I like, it's something along the lines of Lucky Star; ridiculous nonsense that embraces itself as ridiculous nonsense.

Anyway, getting off topic, I think the story in Star Ocean 3 is wonderful cheese that manages to drape itself in some rather exciting moments, like the first encounter with a Proclaimer, or the first part of the ending (vastly helped by this).

Since when does anyone on social media regard others' opinions as relevant?

Need some more help on Kingdom Hearts 3D!

For some reason, Riku's drop speed is four times faster than Sora's and it's really annoying. I've compared the two characters in any way I can think to and it still doesn't make any sense. I always get the Lvl 3 Drop Decelerator when I drop but Sora's drop speed is still 0.4 while Riku's is 1.6

Are you guys getting all excited over three letters that could mean anything? Hell, this is Steam we're talking about, I wouldn't be surprised if it was referencing a game simply called Toz.

I've quickly given up on finishing everyone's record in Birth by Sleep Final Mix. I'll still be sure to grab everyone's Xehanort Reports (I mean, it's kind of pointless to play through the game three times if you're not going to do the extra episode) but there's no way I have the patience to complete the Mirage Arena three times.

It is still my favorite game in the series, but I'm seriously starting to overdose on Kingdom Hearts. It's gotten to the point that if Square Enix were to say "Surprise! Kingdom Hearts 3 is coming out this summer!" my only response would be "No thank you."

I also gave Flick Rush a try in Kingdom Hearts 3D and will probably just ignore that whole part of the game.

So I ended up getting my PS4 early and now I need something so it doesn't end up sitting idle until Type-0 comes out. Preferably something I can play a bit at a time and won't mind not finishing. Was thinking Samurai Warriors, but I'm open to any other suggestions.

...a few for the key to the box we keep our craft club's change and earnings in (what do you call those things in English?)


Er... "Cash Box"

Not joking. Unless you're talking about one secured at a bank, then it's a safety deposit box.

I'm feeling reflective again: 

The more people I meet and talk to as I walk this earth, the more I find that the majority of us were dorks and misfits in high school. We didn't get invited to the elite parties and stuff with the "cool kids." We spent most of our weekends either studying or getting better at stuff we were into. But come college and adulthood, that all shaped us into more interesting people. We became the "cool kids" who people wanted to hang with.

Truth be told, my life as an adult is easily better than my high school, college, and even grad school years. As much as life frustrated me as a kid, I'm really glad I didn't peak too early in life. I mean, if high school was the best years of your life and "it's all downhill from here" then that's going to be a very long and very depressing trip downhill to the grave.

My best days were in early High School, but that's just because it was easier to find a group of like-minded people and hang out with them. As an adult, it's pretty much impossible. And where I live 90% of the population are disrespectful assholes, so it makes it even harder.

Don't get me wrong, I was still bullied in High School and was still kind of miserable, but now that I have nobody to share that misery with, it's a hell of a lot worse.

I worry any remake of Vesperia would rip all the awesome costumes out of the game and price them at $3 a pop.

I have a dilemma. Gamestop is having a deal where I could trade my 360 in for $125 toward a PS4, which I'm definitely getting for Type-0 next month. But I have two concerns.

1. I'd only keep the 360 in case I want to play Vesperia again, or if I somehow get the urge to actually play through Lost Odyssey (before you say anything: the flashback stories actually put me to sleep, so don't try to use those to convince me it's worth playing). But the Vesperia thing is a pretty big deal. One of my favorite games, and I'd love to find time to play it again but I don't know if I ever will.

2. I'd have to pick up the PS4 this month. Okay, this may seem like an odd thing to complain about. But if I get the system before Type-0, I'd be too tempted to pick up a game with it so I could actually play it. But I really don't have time for any more games I haven't already planned on getting.

Still, with Awakened Fate Ultimatum also coming out next month, it would be nice to have that extra money towards the system. And like I said, I'm not keeping the 360 around for a whole lot of reasons.

Tried to fix my own ingrown toenail. Did not go well. Probably made it worse.

But I refuse to have my toe operated on for the fifth time in a year. Either tell me there's a way to prevent it from happening ever again or just chop the damn member off so I can get on with my miserable life.

Yeah my attempts to fix mine when I had it just got it infected (I'm sure dirty shoes + no socks didn't help either).  It hurt like hell.  And a fifth time???!?!!  Goddamn, I'd probably opt for the same 'removal' and have it be over and done with.  Don't know why I'd ever really need a toenail to begin with besides occasionally scratching my calf when my hands are busy. :P

Why do you keep getting them??  You cut your toenail straight, right?  Or you don't rip off the nail as you're cutting it right?

No idea. I barely ever cut my toenails anymore because they barely grow at all (to the point I was concerned and asked my doctor who just shrugged it off) Also, to be fair three of those operations were for one problem until I found a podiatrist that knew what the fuck he was doing.

Furk infinite undiscovery. Capelle or however you spell his name is the worst human being ever concieved. Also the game is just terrible.

Need some input gais and guils. I'm considering trading in my old link between worlds 3ds for a 100 dollar credit towards a "NEW" 3DS. Is this a good idea or should I not bother cuz reasons?

I would at least wait until Nintendo announces a special edition or new color that really interests you. So... about 2, maybe 3 months from now.

I wouldn't call Eternal Sonata "stupid," it gets a bit silly, but the gameplay is pretty solid with a diverse and quite large cast of playable characters. And the game doesn't involve a lot of frustration if you grind a bit before each boss fight.

Also, while I adore the first two Paper Mario titles, I still think Super Paper Mario is the best in the series. It's my second favorite game on the Wii and lands somewhere on my extended list of favorite games overall.

Forecast is a little bit of everything.

1) It shows the effect that is in play right now (first square) , during the next chars turn (second square) and when the current character is up next (third square) in the current world. For example magic up by 20%, more money drops, etc...
2) There are 6 special portals in each world (except the last) but only one is active during the drop at a time (you'll have to find it, IIRC you have to look at the map). The mystery spirit shows you the type of this special enemy in that world and appear as a black out "?". If you have already found and beaten it it says finished and they're not blacked out. Beating all these, iirc, gets you the best weapon.

Yes, thank you! It was the Dream Eater squares that were confusing me, but that explains a lot.
By the way, I also noticed the game keeps count of how many times you've dropped. Does this affect anything like endings or what-have-you?
