My feelings about dogs over the years has gone from apathy to disgust. My feelings towards cats, however, has always been admiration.

Here's proof of concept:

I'm having the exact opposite problem, Klyde. The past three nights I've only slept for about 4 or 5 hours. And yet I wake up not feeling tired. Normally this would actually make me very happy as I've always had trouble sleeping soundly and would therefore require about 10 hours of sleep to feel normal, but to literally cut my normal sleep time in half and actually feel *better* when I wake up is a bit unsettling.

Not much of a shooter fan, but I have to admit the trailers have been pretty fantastic lately.

Oh good, Monster Monpiece was just announced with a release date within the same week as Wildstar and Mario Kart 8. Just when I was worried about having money going into June. -_-

The Witch and the Hundred Knight

Finished the first ending last night. Working towards the second ending now, hopefully I'll get there tonight. I am having a strange relationship with this game. Objectively, I recognize it as a very mediocre game. But there's so much here that I guess you could say 'resonates' with me that I can't get enough of it; in fact, I'm absolutely obsessed with it. Number one reason is that Metallia is my new favorite video game character. But I also am having fun with the combat, the story is pretty interesting, and I dig the music too.
Huh, I just started the game over the weekend and have hit Chapter 5. So far I am enjoying it, but I can't say I really care for Metallia. Kind of doubt I'll ever really care for her....considering the ending for chapter 1. And that reminds me, so far it really bugs me that every character in the game is basically either evil or a complete jerk (or both) except for the dog knight. It sort of fits for the game, but it is annoying that I barely have any characters I can root for.

See, I like how the game never goes the usual route of giving Metallia a sympathetic reason for being a vile psychopath other than "that's how witches are," but still manages to make her a sympathetic character DESPITE being an amoral monster. (At least I thought so)

An amusing opinion from one of my Twitter pals, and one I tend to agree with a bit:

I think people are missing a key issue in this whole Tomodachi Life thing. Who the hell wants to play with Miis anyway? They creep me out.

I am so stoked for this game. Played in some of the closed betas as a class I have no interest in playing when the game comes out. Don't want to have to wade through the same bits of content and bore myself before I can even get into the game. I love the combat, I love the path system, and I love the setting/aesthetic. I am REALLY excited for this one.

Never played the originals. Gotta admit, it's quite telling being on the side of a piece of news like this not affected by nostalgia. Not saying it's nothing to be excited about, but compared to how I felt when HeartGold and SoulSilver were announced, I'm pretty apathetic myself.

Though I also have the slightly unpopular opinion that nostalgia is a perfectly valid reason to be excited for something.

After replacing my old PC controller, I've been playing Guacamelee! for the last week or so and I am loving it. It's inspired me to write a bit (when I get caught up on writing) about how you can tell when love is put into a game. That game is just oozing love for the medium, the genre, and the subject matter. Can't get enough of it.

Also on Chapter 10 of Witch and the Hundred Knight, which I believe is the last chapter for the normal ending.

Went to Kentucky and Oregon lately.

For the people that say Chicago is a beautiful city... sure haven't been anywhere else.




I've never been out of the US (except to Canada... but even then just barely) but I've been just about everywhere *in* the US and Chicago is by far my favorite city. I agree it's not the best *looking* but it's just an awesome place full of awesome people and awesome food

If there's anything in the universe that guarantees this WILL happen is the fact that I just bought an import copy of 3.

Yeeeeahhhhh.... I'm sadly a sucker for this stuff (whatever the official term is). Color me intrigued, though I've never heard of Fruitbat Factory.
719  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The one that got away... on: May 07, 2014, 10:00:53 AM
I can't say any game has "gotten away" since I'm still determined to beat them all at some point, but I think the two that weigh most heavily for me right now are Xenoblade Chronicles and Radiant Historia. Both are excellent titles, but their pace and overall length make them fairly easy to set aside for other games

I've also been meaning to do all the extra bits in Super Paper Mario since it's my second favorite game, but I'd rather clear out some of my backlog (including the two games mentioned above) before I go for it.
