With respect to beating Kirby, congrats!  I hated that last form for the final boss; and I also applaud the Kirby team for thinking up such horrifying designs for their final bosses (especially for a game that is otherwise rainbows and stars and pretty colours).  I also found most of the other bosses easily killed by Jump or Tornado abilities.

I usually just kick them in the head repeatedly with the Fighter Kirby mid-air down ability.

I'm sorry to say I've only really experienced the opposite. That is to say there are plenty of times where I'll really be into a game, usually when it's been a while since I played something "new." Only to quickly grow weary of it and be ready to move on to something else new.

I could stretch the truth and say I experience what you're describing every time I start a Harvest Moon game, but that's only because those games really do have a "warm-up" phase where the game is incredibly dull and tedious until you reach a certain point.

Some people are so horrid. Ugh. My little sister has her first job in KFC, and she's doing really well there. I thought I would go see her and get a cup of tea while she was working. She told me she had the worst day yesterday because she accidentaly spilled some coffee on a woman, and the woman later rang up and complained about her, saying that my sister spilled it on purpose and that she was flicking pennies at her.

I know it's impossible for you guys to know, but my sister is the kindest, gentlest person on Earth. It is completely outside of her nature to do something like that. When I was a waiter in a hotel I accidentaly spilled coffee on a woman, so I know how awful that makes you feel, but at least i wasn't complained about and then lied about. Fucking assholes.

As Edea would say, mrgrgr...

I almost got fired from my first job because I wouldn't take shit from customers. I really hate the "customer is king" philosophy, because the "customer is a puckering asshole" is more apt.

100%.  I hate when they get their way because of a fear for a bit of lost business.  It's the epitome of not teaching a child a lesson when it happens and letting them get away with it.

That goes both ways, though. There have been way too many instances at my retail jobs when showing the customer a bit of compassion has been kicked to the curb in the pursuit of a little extra profit. Working at Gamestop, I'm sure you know that unless it's about selling someone a pre-owned product, it's frowned upon to try and save a customer some money.

Even with the pre-owned stuff, My assistant manager basically encourages all employees to just give people a pre-owned copy of a game without making sure it's what they want. I agree customers should be a little more forgiving to their service providers, but at the same time sometimes retailers are just asking for a little backlash.

Just finished Kirby's Return to Dreamland. I think that brings my Wii backlog to only 6 more games (but one of those is a Harvest Moon, so that's going to be slow going) Think I'll do the two Gamecube games that I'm including in that number first.

Double post edit:


I just started playing around with the challenge multipliers in Project Diva F. WHY HAVEN'T I BEEN USING THESE!? I could be rolling in Diva Points at this point but noooooo~ "not up to the challenge" I said. Seriously was overthinking how difficult the challenges would make things not even putting two and two together that I already do the challenges just fine without buying them.

Only one I'm not too happy with is the Stealth one. Too much of a challenge for a x2 multiplier, though it would be nice if challenges could be combined.

Oh my God, this game is so gorgeous! Like I really liked the art style for 4 Heroes of Light, but it didn't really translate well into the game with the limited tech. With the 3DS it *really* looks amazing. It's just. so. damn. BEAUTIFUL!

I too love my Vita and I'm happy to hear Sony actually managed to sell quite a few this holiday season. Maybe now they'll pay more attention to it and it will be more than a footnote at E3.

I've mostly been playing Project Diva F, primarily because I've been on a streak of accomplishing goals in that game. First I managed to clear all the songs on Hard Mode, I'm only 3 songs away from getting all Perfects in Easy Mode, and I'm only 150,000 Diva Points away from unlocking every module.

I've also found a really fun (and addictive, but aren't they all?) iOS game called Spirit Stones. It's a little like the Puzzles & Dragons formula in that it's a TCG combined with a Match-3 Puzzle RPG, but it uses a different match-3 game that I find a little more interesting and it doesn't take a frustratingly long time to progress.

Funny, I find a heavy focus on crafting and/or upgrading equipment a huge plus in my RPG's.

Happy Gregorian New Year! (or is that "Happy New Gregorian Year!")

Whatever, make the most of it.

I can say that Vesperia is a wild ride and certainly worth playing while XIII-2 is good, but not great. I'll also add that I recommend leaving Infinite Undiscovery on the back burner. A lot of people like it, but I couldn't stand the exploration. I love exploring everything in a game, and the way IU's map works you uncover a VERY tiny circle of it around your party as you're running through an area. This means covering every inch of a map means literally covering every inch of a map. This is made worse by the fact that areas are massive but completely devoid of anything interesting (Making the title ironically perfect).

I guess that was more of a rant about why I couldn't stand Infinite Undiscovery than genuine advice.

Need one more Flawless Crystal for the CT prereq, each one is taking forever since I didn't participate in the initial rush.

FATE's guys! FATEs are so awesome we should use them for everything!


EDIT: First CT run went *fairly* well. Wiped once on bone dragon, bomb, and behemoth but we got through it. I have to say the Bone Dragon, while not too difficult, is incredibly annoying.

Took me a while to reply, because I was having trouble picking just one scene from "Airplane!," but I ultimately decided on Roger, Roger!

Also the last 20 minutes of "The Prestige"

I'm too lazy to check, but one thing I'm noticing is that in some modern RPGs, there aren't subtitles or text boxes during animated voiced cutscene cinematics.  Sometimes the audio isn't mixed well and I can't hear the voices.  Sometimes I have to play a game at a reduced volume for whatever reason and I can't hear the words.    I want to be able to read what the characters are saying too. 

On that note--and this is more a problem I have with games in general, though it's certainly more noticeable in RPG's where the balance is so important--I hate that in this day and age there are still games without individual volume controls in the game settings. I had to stop replaying Star Ocean 3 because I just can't deal with how much quieter the voices are than the music.

I really wish I could figure out an explanation as to why when someone mangles a thought into that "doge" meme sentence structure I just want to punch something really hard. I find it so infuriatingly annoying and I don't know why. It's just a harmless random meme that will go away soon enough and yet I hate it so so much.

But I can see why people might enjoy a fairly basic brawler with funny (though not exactly original) characters.  Sometimes you just want something a little silly like that.  Not every game needs to be The Last of Us.

That's certainly my impressions on the game. It's simple, it's silly, and it's a nice time suck when you want a break from the norm.
