Normally I can't stand micromanaging in games.

Normally I can't stand time limits in games.

Apparently combining the two is a match made in heaven for me. I'm super addicted to the School Life minigame you unlock after finishing Danganronpa. I find myself planning my next moves while going about my own daily tasks and then putting them into practice in the evening. It's incredibly stressful, but somehow I find it to be an enjoyable stress rather than an aggravating one.

For realistic breast physics, just look to games that don't talk about their breast physics.

Just accidentally spent 3 hours playing the Witness. One of the first things I did after deciding to try and finish The Town (which I did for the most part, aside from the pair of side-by-side "Guess WTF the developer was thinking" puzzles) was stumble on the idea of the hidden environmental puzzles that activate the obelisks. No way am I going to find all of those, but that unfortunately apparently won't stop me from trying.

Finished Danganronpa. Or at least as far as I know I've finished Danganronpa, not sure if there's some kind of secret ending or not.

I liked it. In fact, I liked it a lot. The characters were all fantastic, and the plot, while not quite the mind-fuck that is the Zero Escape lore, was interesting enough to keep me hooked. In fact, it's going to be difficult to finish up some other games before jumping into Danganronpa 2.

I'm of the opinion that, if you enjoy pornography from time to time, you have little right to get up in arms about sexual/gender objectification.  I'm sure many would consider that a radical viewpoint, but you can at least see the conflict there, yes?

How about them RPGs?

With apologies to Tooker for perhaps disrespecting his wishes, I do want to add that while I agree with the "up in arms" stance of your viewpoint, I do hope you recognize that it's perfectly okay to acknowledge that certain aspects of a personal vice are indeed problematic. They are vices for a reason, after all.

It takes a pretty dumb smoker to stand up and declare that cigarettes are perfectly fine for your health.

1. Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons/Ages
2. Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap

3. Evoland 2 - Finished this last Friday with 100% completion. Really fantastic example of a well done sequel. The first Evoland was kind of a mess with a ton of wasted potential. This game took all the criticism on the nose and crafted a really neat RPG that, although still not really delivering on the promise of the last game, instead decided to go a different direction and was very successful. I did feel the ending was a bit *too* open-ended, and the latter parts of the plot felt like they were developing behind the protagonists' backs, but overall it was a wonderful game.

4. Borderlands 2 - Not much more to add about this that I haven't already said. The story was good, the gameplay was great when it wasn't being incredibly frustrating. Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon's Keep is probably the greatest bit of DLC for any game ever. I did kind of stop the game midway through the Captain Scarlett side content. I ran into a quest that I was almost certain was bugged and considering how overleveled for the content I was, I just wasn't having fun anymore. Actually, after I got Maya's "Toxic Cloud" ability, any effort the game required was basically gone, further proving my point that Gearbox did a crap job of balancing this one.

Gonna start reducing my games I'm currently working on to 4 total: One PC, one console, and two handhelds ('cause I can more easily find time to play handheld games).

So right now I've got:

The Witness (PS4) - Really great puzzle game, really like how the game guides the player to figuring out the various rules of each puzzle and though a lot of people complain about the exploration aspect, I honestly think the game would be a completely different experience without it, and not as good of one. There are plenty of puzzles already that have frustrated me (The perspective puzzles where you have to use the first person aspect to overlay a solution on to a puzzle are extremely annoying), but there are so many options as to what to work on that it's simple to just give up on a puzzle for the time being and go find something else to solve.

Borderlands 2 - Playing through Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon's Keep. The content is hilarious. The quest dialogue is a riot, the interaction between the narration and in-game happenings are brilliant, and the writing overall is at its best. However, the combat itself is irritating at the best of times. Just finished the battle with the 4 ghost kings and died ABOUT 20 times. Those indestructible skeletons would just get right in my face making it impossible to shoot at anything else, and so you'd just have to give up and hope next time you could take down at least one of the kings before ending up surrounded by immortal enemies.

Danganronpa - Just finished Chapter 4. Loved that the game told me I was halfway through, because given the number of characters and my experience with other high-adrenaline courtroom puzzlers (aka Phoenix Wright) I just assumed the game was almost over. I'm also sort of proud that I had a really good idea about what was going on after the investigation in this chapter. Although I admit that it was pretty obvious and I kind of felt like the game made a misstep in having Byakuya use that as his instance of feeling one-upped in the logic department.

FF Explorers - Haven't played a lot because of my internet issues and trouble finding a party working on something I actually need to get done. Sure, I could solo a lot of the content, but its far more enjoyable and versatile in a group.

Unfortunately I'm currently not really using my own 3DS since I'm working through FF Explorers and my 3DS has shit wifi capabilities, so I'm borrowing a friend's for the time being. But I'll be sure to add you as soon as I switch back or get myself a new system.

fun facts, there is a final fantasy tactics style infinite CP glitch.

Is it called 'playing the game'? 'Cause holy crap is the game generous with the CP
341  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: February 07, 2016, 09:12:39 AM
I'm guessing the game in question is School Days, a game I refuse to play even out of morbid curiosity for the things I've heard about it.
342  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: How deep is your backlog? on: February 06, 2016, 09:51:44 PM
The biggest part of my backlog would be my Steam library, except most of those games I look at and realize I'm okay if I never get around to finishing them. My biggest problem is my DS/3DS library which includes way too many games that just go on and on and on. Really I just need to round up any game that *isn't* like that and focus on those enough to beat them and not feel so overwhelmed by the ordeal.

I love the companies that spend $5M for a 30-second time-slot during the Super Bowl and then throw their commercial up on Youtube before the game even airs.

Typical television landscape, mostly. Saturday night is where TV shows go to die.

I just found my unopened copy of Moko moko fiends.  I had tossed it in on a covered shelf and forgot about it.  I decided to get my weekly coins from Yokai watch so now I'm stuck playing that game :p  I got Eterna as an S rank so I guess that will serve as motivation.

Edit:  I don't understand how recruiting works in Yokai watch.  I try feeding the enemies but they never join up.  This game feels like a failed pokemon game in general but its still playable.

One thing I find incredibly ugly about Level-5's Pokemon clones (Ni no Kuni & Yokai Watch) is that the evolutions are almost always just lazy palette swaps.
