Finishing up the extra stuff in .Hack//Mutation before moving on to Outbreak

- I forgot how absolutely infuriating the Flag Races can be. Took me 35 tries to take first place, Even though I'd constantly get 20.2 - 20.5 seconds. And that was just the Theta server.

- I did actually notice something I somewhat missed the first few times I played through these games. The quotes the game takes out of .Hack//SIGN for the Memory items all seem to be quotes that foreshadow the events of the games, so that's a kind of neat little tie-in.

- I've always hated that the game is designed so that the harder the bosses get the longer the dungeons are leading up to them. And with no alternative save points besides the one in town, it makes for a really annoying death penalty. Thankfully, with the game's economy death is a matter of making a really stupid mistake or being *severely* underequipped.

Almost finished with .Hack//Mutation. Every time I play through these games I think I'm going to find something I missed the last time I played, and every time I'm disappointed with the realization that I didn't miss anything. The plot really is just that broken. I mean, it's a fine enough story on it's own but it feels very much separated from it's own predecessor let alone the rest of the franchise.

I have to go with Alexandria from FFIX as well. Not only for the design, but because it makes such a wonderful "first town" section of the game. Often times I'll replay the game right until the Evil Forest and be happy to leave it at that.

Here's my completely unjustified wish list for TGS:

1. New Dissidia
2. Trauma Team sequel for Wii U
3. Some kind of major details on FFXV (release, gameplay, anything substantial)
4. In the wake of Silent Hills, Konami announces Castlevanias.

Bittersweet moment when the preview after last night's season finale revealed that next summer would be the final season of Falling Skies. Super happy they're not going to draw the show out like Lost did, but also sad to see it go.

It's gone in some really strange directions, but the show has always managed to keep this wonderful tone that stays dark and oppressive, but not suffocating. The writing has always been great and the acting has usually been pretty great as well. Plus it was a weekly television show in my favorite subgenre of sci-fi (alien invasion) so I'll miss it quite a bit when it's gone.

Or read other threads apparently :P

I could never judge anyone for liking Senran Kagura.

Last night I was thinking of reviving the Waifu thread to gush about how awesome a character Yomi is.

And nobody mentioned the greatest announcement from the conference: PS4 THEMES!!

I just really hope they don't actually release the thing with the name "New 3DS," because if retailers thought parents were confused about the Wii U... hoo boy.

"I'd like a new 3DS"
"Do you mean a New 3DS or a regular 3DS that is new?"
"....wut,"

Yup, just a bunch of babies who think they're H4x0r5 because they learned how to DDOS but haven't learned the difference between playing "vengeful vigilante" and committing a felony.

How do you even "reboot" Underworld?

Underwoirld done in a different style is just another brand of vampires vs. werewolves.

Someone pointed out how absurd it is that swatting is even possible... like the police don't mind sending out an entire fully armed SWAT team on an anonymous tip? They don't actually look into the tip before sending in the cavalry?

And I just say enough with all the awfulness

So here's a bunch of commenters passionately defending Hello Kitty's identity as a cat.

This morning my head feels like at any moment it could erupt into liquid brains. My head has never, ever hurt this bad and I have no idea what could be causing it.

Second boss in Guided Fate Paradox seems a little... unfair. Allowing only 2 turns upon defeating the last regular mob to damage the main boss seems like the game is asking for a bit too much luck.

I figured out the job thing right away, but what bugs me is that the section doesn't actually tell you your progress on the job.

And I really, really want to find the SFX guy for this game and play the Allium Orb sound effect in his ear over and over and over again.

*SCHWEEEE* *SCHWEEEE* *SCHWEEEE* *SCHWEEEE*
