There hasn't been a post on the forums all day, so this post is from me to all of you. You're welcome.

Should probably post some haps though, huh?

Uh... moving on 8/7. Only a few more weeks of my first semester of graduate work. Not looking forward to the final exam. I don't think it's going to be that hard, but it's an online course with a proctored exam, so basically I get to have a complete stranger watching me take the test which totally creeps me out and is absolutely going to make me more nervous than I would be otherwise.

Just went on a rant on Twitter about the new PSN design.

Used to be I could log on, go to "New > New This Week" and check out any game, add-on, bundle, avatar, video, or theme that was added that week. Then they buried that in Games, which is fine I guess, though counter-intuitive. Now they've gotten rid of it completely. The App Store recently did something similar, replacing sections like "Recently Updated" and "Recently Added" with each subcategory of games having 4 different "Featured" categories and no way to order anything by release date.

I'm just getting sick and tired of digital storefronts becoming more and more convoluted because of some lame marketing scheme or whatever.

EDIT: Also, if you haven't spent enough money on DOA5 FR yet, the Season 2 pass is now available for, just like the first season pass, around $100. Gotta get those 70,000 costumes you'll use once before going back to your favorite.

Whatever they do next I look forward to it, they've earned a good reputation with even their small library (Odin Sphere probably being the weakest of the bunch from a gameplay standpoint, but it looks like they're setting out to change that).

^I actually enjoyed Odin Sphere more than I enjoyed Dragon's Crown

Grim Grimoire 2!

The game that nobody everybody is asking for!

EDIT: ...actually. shit, now I want to replay Grim Grimoire.

Do you seriously feel like you're being oppressed because of a harmless segue?

Okay, so one of the things I'm not liking about Ar nosurge is the battle grades. But this is a problem I have with any game ever. I just don't like being "graded" on my performance when I'm just trying to have some fun. It's extra frustrating in a game like Ar nosurge that does a poor job of explaining the battle system and completely fails at explaining how the grading works and how to improve your grade.

This is another problem I have with a lot of JRPG's: This tendency for tutorials to explain all the game's mechanics, but not how to use them effectively, which is why a lot of JRPGs get accused of having "tacked on" mechanics with no real use, because the game fails to explain their use.

EDIT: Also on October 25 in Persona 3, so expect another journal update by the weekend at the latest (for anyone still reading it)

I prefer your Scottish accent to something like Sir Connery, where it sounds like you're going to get showered if you stand within 30 feet of the man.

Couple of quick questions for you, Star:

> What sort of headset/microphone do you use? Just looking for general quality/price point. And so you don't worry, I'm asking because the audio is decent, not the other way around.

> Are you still using the same software for recording? I thought I heard you mention at the beginning of one of the episodes you had to change what you were using.

You do have me intrigued at trying this myself, though not until after I move and not if I end up needing fairly pricey equipment to even get something with moderate quality.

Picked up Ar NoSurge in the PSN flash sale (cost me $5 thanks to some credit already in my wallet) and I'm enjoying it so far. Sci-Fi JRPG's aren't exactly rare these days, but they usually just feel like standard stories with light sci-fi elements. So it's a nice departure to play a JRPG that actually feels Sci-Fi.

Also really appreciate a JRPG that likes to take breaks from all the fighting and dungeon crawling and whatnot. So yeah, feel like I'm really gonna get into this title.

The good news is if you have 100,000 yen to spend on a body pillow, at least one of your home's rooms should be 7m.

When I worked with it, I really loved Cakewalk. Not sure if they even make that anymore, though. That was at least a decade ago.

Not going to repost my list just to add one entry, but...

Monster Monpiece - After beating the main game AND post game I ended up with a card collection of 279... out of a possible 1050!! Mind you, most of those are online-only cards, but I still thought I'd at least get half of them (Probably could if I wanted to bother upgrading all the cards I acquired in post-game that I didn't want to bother upgrading)

EDIT: Oh, and the final boss of the end-game was really awesome. Starts with a really tough onslaught you need to survive followed by a fairly normal battle, but that beginning was really intense.

Tripped walking up the stairs and faceplanted against the door. My exact words were "FUCK." Lip is busted but I think I'm alright.

The worst part is when you're falling and trying to right yourself but you're already too far shifted one way to do anything.

My biggest fear is slipping on the stairs teeth-first.

And speaking of slip, anyone hear what happened to Jimmy Fallon?  Dude almost loses a finger when his wedding ring catches on a counter when he slipped (the photos are very gross).

I feel like ass today.  I think I almost had a heat stroke this morning, so now I'm staying in the dark and taking it easy for a little.

Only caught the story because I was watching the monologues of every late night show I could to see if anyone bothered to mention Iwata. Nobody did. I think it's like sacrilege or something to mention anything during a late night talk show monologue that isn't a joke. Which is really asinine when you think about it.

So when they said that you could field upwards to 6 or more characters, what they really meant was "Have fun playing as generic anime swordsman #0326 for the entirety of this 40-80 hour game.".

Also its nice to see that they wanted to make this series entirely Sci-Fi, they just also wanted it to conform to the standard swords and sorcery because thats what sells.

He didn't say anything about not being able to switch characters. I think the comparison was literally limited to the fact that battles start as you approach enemies.

So sounds like the NA version of Million Arthur is maybe finally coming out this month, hurray!

Probably the only one who cares, but as a huge CCG fan, I'm really excited for it.

Been trying the game out. I... don't understand where it's popularity comes from. It has a bunch of really bad design flaws, is just a collection of incredibly generic Mobile CCG mechanics, and frankly even most of the card designs aren't that interesting, with names too strange to make any of them memorable.
