I hate when people say the misuse of "its/it's" is their grammar  pet peeve. It's not a difficult mistake to make, and it's not as obvious as people make it out to be considering in school we're taught that apostrophe-s is used to denote possession except for that one single exception.

Started my second run of Catherine and already halfway through Stage 6. Having a lot more fun now that I'm getting the hang of it and not letting it frustrate me (like when I was having terrible luck on the Stage 5 boss) plus I managed to get gold on Stages 2 and 4.

Finished Catherine! And now for some reason I'm debating playing through it again to see how the story plays out on the Freedom side.

Well done!!!!!  You overcame and DID IT!


Thanks! I have been trying lately to channel my frustration into more positive energy. I know I have a bit of a silent reputation on this forum of being kind of whiny. good new year resolution idea, I suppose.

Tried the demo for Stella Glow.


It is generic.

Like *really* generic.

Like you'd have to never have played an SRPG to think anything remotely innovative is going on generic.

Like the main character has amnesia and his adoptive sister is inappropriately close to him generic.

The voice acting is nice.

Made it to 6-3 in Catherine which starts you off at a dead end that as far as I'm concerned is impossible. I started out liking this game because it promoted ingenuity over finding a single possible solution, and now that's exactly what it has become.

UPDATE: Looked up a guide for the level just to see how to start it. Was missing something really dumb. Next few levels were fairly easy, now on to 7-2

"Why black?"
"Because they're various government and military uniforms that--"
"But why black?"
"Well in the kingdom of Lucis black has a significance--"
"BUT WHY BLACK?"
"It's part of the lore--"
"BUT. WHY. BLACK!?"

Designers have a habit of answering design-related questions with answers that have nothing to do with design.

Are you on easy? I had trouble but managed to finish it on easy.
After that, raising the difficulty isn't so bad because what you need is a 'path'.
Once you find the working 'path' in a level, it still works even on hard (although there is extra crap to deal with - also, bosses are way harder).

I play all my games on normal, or at least the closest difficulty setting to normal or default.

Honest question: Am I a fucking moron for not being able to get very far in Catherine? I've played the game multiple times, never made it even halfway through the game. I don't normally have problems with puzzles in games, but I cannot for the life of me wrap my head around the block climbing in that game.

I always get a bit frustrated when my ineptitude at games shows through, but nothing has genuinely pissed me off more than that game.

EDIT: After much frustration, I am now on the boss of stage 5. Pretty sure I'm not going for both extreme endings in this game and will just bother finishing it once.

^ Thanks, already took care of that plus the free skit pack.

Was convinced this would be the first (second, I guess 'cause of Hearts) Tales game (since I discovered the series) that I didn't buy. Now y'all have me excited but now I have to wait until X-mas.

^ You just explained why I gave up pretty quickly on Little Big Planet 2

Okay, so here are some favorites of mine:

Eternal Sonata - Seize the Artefact for Tallness: I have no idea what that's supposed to mean, and within context there's far more urgency than is necessary for the dungeon at hand, but it's just dripping with bombastic Sakuraba goodness.

Final Fantasy - Mount Gulg: I know someone already posted the FFIX version, but I actually prefer the original in this case.

Final Fantasy III (Remake) - Dark Crystal: The OST had a lot of underrated tracks, and really the only thing holding this back from being my favorite final dungeon theme is the length.

Final Fantasy XIII - Sunleth Waterscape: "Raaaaiiiinns of a neeewww daaaayyy...."

Legend of Mana - Holy Power of Mana: I mean... c'mon.

The Witch and the Hundred Knight - Gone With the Dust: Most of this soundtrack is merely inoffensive, but the tracks that are good are really good. This is one of those.

I had to work late last night and since last time I had to work late I learned that the side streets I have to walk down to get home are pitch black at night, I took a flashlight with me this time.

Pitch black side streets + North Eastern neighborhood + flashlight = serious real-life Silent Hill vibe.

Started and finished Evoland in like two days.  That was fun and cute, but the game, at times, betrayed it's rough indie exterior.

Started playing FTL: Faster Than Light again, this time with the Advanced Edition content.  It's still a near-perfect video game.  I can't even believe how good this game is.

I haven't played the second Evoland, but I was definitely disappointed by the first one. I felt like it took what was a really neat idea and rushed it a bit too much.
