Best advice for Resonance of Fate is to abuse the hell out of that run & gun ability, and DON'T FORGET YOU CAN JUMP DURING IT. Seriously, as soon as I figured that bit out battles got A) A lot easier, and B) A lot more spectacular.

^ I love Valkyrie Profile art, too. My desktop background for the past couple of years has been the screenshot of Lenneth with her wings outspread in front of that giant moon.

Speaking of desktop backgrounds, one of my favorite things to do in the .Hack games was collecting the artwork for your in-game "desktop". One of my favorites was from .Hack//GU -

Needed a break from the grinding in Chapter 5 of Bravely Default, so I popped in Disgaea DS again (Yes, I know. Irony blah blah blah). I managed to get passed the third mission finally, and then promptly got slaughtered in the fourth mission. I really don't understand this needlessly complicated game. Though all the various systems to follow isn't nearly as confusing as trying to take advantage of the fact that only kills gain characters experience. Is that the same throughout the series? 'Cause I also have Disgaea 3, 4 and D2.

Anyway, I decided to play Devil Survivor instead.

I think less of them die than those that do die. But it's been a while since I did the earlier chapters

I was kind of shocked to be reminded while playing Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD that there actually *were* allusions in the original to the Keyblade War, the Worlds' origin, and even Xehanort's betrayal (sort of). I do think a lot of plot elements from the rest of the games still kind of made a lot of the first game irrelevant, but I had forgotten that those three big ones do kind of fit with the original.

I think I remember what the allusions to the Keyblade War and the Worlds's origin were, but I'm drawing a blank on Xehanort's betrayal.

There was abit in Ansem's Report when he met Mickey that the Keyblade was used by one to bring peace to the Worlds and by another to bring ruin, or something like that... it's a bit of a stretch but it sort of works.

(on that note, I find it so strange that Job Lvls 12, 13, 14 all require 7,000 points and all levelling for the last, oh I dunno, TEN levels has required exactly 70,000 exp points... it just kinda stops escalating... I was wondering why I was still consistently getting decent level ups from just grinding against the same batch of enemies ---- yes, the Florem area Rafflesias.  I kind of admire that; again, this title works in a strange way asking you to really milk its combat...cuz things get tricky for there).

What'choo talkin' 'bout!? All the jobs I've mastered have only required 5,000 points for 13 and 14.

Damnit, I'm in complete smitten mode tonight. Mind you a more realistic-expectation laden form of smitten than I would be in back in High School or whatever, but still... don't think I'll ever change in that regard.

Ah well, at least it's nice to finally feel like getting back in the game after all the crap I put up with a year and a half ago.

I really have developed some kind of gaming ADD. Last night I started Rogue Galaxy over for the fourth time. For some reason I always get to the part where you return to Rosa right after the mines and then just never go back to it.

I can see the more die hard Vocaloid fans getting upset when entertainment news, and even perhaps some local news start doing their thing where "Let's do a story about this thing that's been around for a while like it's brand new 'cuz it's brand new to us!"

^Do you have Banjo-Kazooie/Tooie on any other platform? Because if not I'd highly recommend those. Shadow Complex also comes highly recommended.

Anyways, finally found Shibuya. Delved into the Messiah girl's mind and now she's traveling with me. Now I'm exploring Roppongi.

Have both Banjo games on my N64, which I actually still have hooked up. Haven't considered Shadow Complex in a while, certainly an option, though I've heard it's pretty short and not very challenging.

By complete accident, I have enough money in my XBox account to buy something up to $20. Problem is, nothing else besides what I already own truly stands out. So suggest me some stuff!

Here's some highlights of what I've bought on XBox:

- Puzzle Quest/Puzzle Quest 2
- Gyromancer (I liked it, nobody else seems to)
- Dust: AET
- Banjo-Kazooie N&B
- Castle Crashers
- BattleBlock Theater
- Half-Minute Hero
- Crystal Defenders
- Bastion

Any suggestions are welcome, I'd hate to just leave the money sitting there, especially since I plan to be done with XBox once I finish my backlog on the console.

Well this sucks... Witch and the Hundred Knight progress has been completely halted due to a seemingly unreachable switch in the second part of Chapter 4. Tried everything I could possibly think of with no luck. Looked around thinking maybe I was trying to use the wrong switch, but sure enough it was the only one around. I don't like these kinds of "puzzles" mostly because the "solution" is something stupid that the game failed to offer as a possibility.

I don't know why I'm so pissed off about people's knee-jerk reactions to someone from Square Enix saying something about DRM.

It just sickens me how little people think sometimes, shouting about how they're going to boycott Square Enix for making the comment when they barely even USE DRM. It seems to me like it was an out-of-context quote about some matter that doesn't even pertain to Square Enix. But of course mainstream gaming media only care about getting those reactions from their readers, so they post non-news stories like this just to rattle some cages.

Ugh. It's late and it's been a long day, I probably won't even care about this in the morning.
