Went to the mall today with my fiancée so she could spoil me in celebration of my birthday that just passed this Thursday. I gots me a vest, a nice plaid longsleeve shirt, and a very tacky--but much wanted :)--longsleeve shirt that kind of reminds me of gob from Arrested Development. I'm slowly building a collection of these kinds of clothing so when I reach a certain age I can change my entire wardrobe overnight.

So far I'm going for a Mix of GOB and Victor Sullivan (mostly just Sully). ;)

Also, I organized a bit of my music collection because it was frustrating being surrounded by stacks of soundtracks. I must have order in my room O_O. It's actually a pain to deal with this ocd (everything in order), because if my room isn't clean and the moons and planets aligned, I get very distracted and can't work (thankfully it doesnt affect my music listening). Any y'all suffer with that kind of thing?

I have a pretty terrible case of OCD. I tend to organize things at stores I don't work at just because it bugs me they aren't properly organized. My room is a bit messy, but that's because my sense of order is a bit chaotic, and other aspects of my OCD prevent me from keeping it clean. For instance, I can't even start my day until I have a list (either mental or physical) of everything I want to do that day, how long each thing is going to take, and what time I want to move on from one thing to the next.

Oh, and I'm constantly calculating percentages of everything. That one's a bit odd I realize, and it's tough to explain exactly what I mean.

My only experience with the series is FF Legend 3. I remember enjoying it though.

That's a good way to avoid giving a game a fair shot. I will approach both games with an open mind.

Besides, for all you know this game selling well could simply tell Square Enix that they can coast by with HD remakes of all their last-gen games. As much as I'd go for an FF12-HD, I'd rather them continue working on moving into the future then reminding everyone of the past.

Just found out there are actually 8 chapters in Hyperdimension Neptunia Re:Birth, so being on Chapter 5 means I'm only a little over halfway done. Which is annoying because my characters are around level 55 and I just found out the hard way I need to do a little more level grinding for the next dungeon. I decided to look up some battle strategies to see if I'm maybe completely overlooking something, but it just seems to be that straightforward of a leveling system (The recommended level for the final boss is 80-90)

Try to get your hands on the PSP remake of the first Star Ocean. The exploration is extremely straight-forward, and the combat system boils down to "hack away at the enemy until it dies" and is very forgiving.

EDIT: Also, I try to tell this to everyone introducing someone to video games: Don't over-explain things, and don't offer advice when none was asked for. If they get frustrated at a part, encourage them MAYBE offer a tip or two, but don't offer to get them through the part unless they ask.

Basically, just let them keep experimenting themselves to get a better feel for the game.

EDIT 2: And don't force your personal tastes on her. Introduce her to genres besides RPG's and let her decide what she likes to play.

The combination of 'World Crisis' and those freaky tornadoes and lightning made the FF7 ending one of my favorite "Catastrophe" scenes in a video game. In fact one of the few things I liked about Dirge of Cerberus was the intro where you got to see the more intimate chaos that was going on in the city during that madness.

This day has already been so strange so far in-so-far as it has gone entirely according to plan. Like, when I get up I set up times to do everything I need or want to do, and of course it never goes exactly as I set aside time for, but my OCD demands I continue to structure my day rigidly. And so far today I've gotten everything done at exactly the time I wanted to get it done. It's a strange, euphoric sensation being this on top of my day.

Anyway, just finished my part of my grad school application. Just waiting on one more letter of recommendation and my transcripts, the latter I just verified have been printed out and will be sent out in plenty of time. It's out of my hands now.

And I'm pretty nervous about the whole thing.

EDIT: Getting upset that I still can't download my Miku DLC, getting the wonderfully generic "An Error Has Occurred" every time I try to download something (Tested a game demo to verify it's not just the Hatsune Miku stuff)

Might be a PSN problem, last night it wouldn't let me download any of the Hatsune Miku DLC.

I love the Dragon Quest games, but I can tell you without a shadow of doubt it's not 'cause of the music.

It's not bad stuff, but it's hardly memorable. Except the level up jingle, which has been my phone's notification sound for about 5 years now.

T.G. Cid is the most OP character in the history of OP characters. Using him pretty much just sucks the fun out of the game because he annihilates everything he comes in contact with.
341  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Second on: December 09, 2014, 09:57:00 PM
Any SE collector's edition that doesn't make it to the US is no loss whatsoever.

Square Enix refuses to sell their CE's in retail stores for whatever bullshit reason and their own store is absolute garbage to deal with.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re:Birth is basically telling me at this point "You WILL have Blanc in your party during boss fights or you WILL die horribly!" I like that the game went out of it's way to make each party member uniquely useful, but Blanc isn't so much a good tank as much as she is the only party member able to take a hit from the late-game bosses. So the next question becomes do you keep a healer in the party and plink away at the boss' massive hp pool with your one damage dealer, or do you risk two damage dealers and having to spend a turn swapping in a healer when necessary?

Also, I'm currently level 50 struggling with the bosses and then a new party member comes in at level 38 and it's just like, "Am I playing the game wrong? What gives?" I hate it when games do that. Just give me new party members at my party level average and don't make me question how I'm playing the game.

The island in the bottom right clearly has the super-secret 100-floor battle arena.
344  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The most horseshit battles you've suffered through, an RPG retrospective on: December 07, 2014, 10:16:04 PM
I can't think of any specific battles off the top of my head, but generally this: Any programmed battle you can't win but given the impression you can.

Use all your items to stay alive > Die anyway > Game Continues > Lose your shit (figuratively and literally)

Only two that come to mind right now are that Wolf boss from Tales of Vesperia and the Organization XIII member you fight at the second visit to Beast's Castle in KH2.

The gifs won't go to waste: Yakuza 5 is being localised. Guess Sega finally figured out people actually want to buy games that aren't Sonic.

I'm not sure that's actually true.  It sounds like it's actually Sony who's localizing it.

If that's the case, I'd love it if somebody told Sony about a little game called Phantasy Star Online 2....
