Klutz, you're getting close to where Xillia gets really, really weird in a hurry. I needed a break from the game just because the plot development was so out of left field.

There's a lot of random things in this game. Like that scene in Kanbalar where Elize is suddenly frighteningly bipolar. Seriously, there had to have been something lost in translation there, because she really does come across as a sociopath.

So tempted to place a bid on one particular piece from the FFX/X-2 artwork auction, even though it would most definitely be a terrible financial decision.

I sort of kind of hate you right now, Dice. Don't take it personally.

And yeah, that PS2 title screen is just so awkward looking. I plan on playing the first hour or so of the PS2 version on Monday so the differences will be immediately apparent.

Took the dive today and tried to get back into Tales of Xillia without starting all the way over. Doing pretty good so far, it certainly helps that the combat isn't too difficult and the plot is pretty easy to follow at this point (Tail end of Chapter 2, I believe). Also, almost everything in the area is weak to fire, so Milla and Leia's Flare Tornado destroys every battle.

It's kind of tragic that I like some of the generic NPC outfits more than the main cast's. That's not to say they're terrible, but the fact that everyone looks like they belong in a different game from each other doesn't really help matters. But the game is picking up, so I'm trying to stay positive. On that note, it certainly has my favorite OP of the series. And though the combat is pretty daunting with how many elements are jumbled together, the results allow for some pretty nifty tricks.

It's still my least favorite Tales game thus far, but at least the game seems to be getting less boring now.

The other day I went to Chipotle, and the girl ahead of me was getting a burrito. She asked the guy for guacamole, and he puts a GIANT scoop of Guacamole on her burrito, and she asks for another scoop. So the guy puts another GIANT scoop of Guacamole on the burrito. At this point, half her burrito is guacamole, and after wrapping the burrito, the girl asks 'can I also have two sides of guacamole?'

Like seriously, what the actual fuck? How is it humanly possible to like Guacamole THAT much?! She didn't even get chips, she just got two cups of guacamole with her burrito that was 60% guacamole.

Illusion of Gaia requires special mention for being a packed in Strategy Guide for getting all 50 of those blasted Red Gems.

I've been trying to remember the name of that game for the last six months. Thank you!

Good News: I not only have Tuesday off, but Sunday off as well (I normally work every Sunday), so I have no work days between now and when the game releases.

Bad News: I figured with my free 2-day shipping Amazon would ship the game tomorrow and I'd receive it on Tuesday. However, a friend reminded me they wouldn't ship on a Saturday--and holy crap just had a deja vu moment typing that--so it would most likely ship today. And since I haven't heard anything yet, I'm starting to worry a little bit.

I've never been this anxious for a game to come out, and for an HD port nonetheless!

Couldn't sleep last night because I've been mulling over this job offer my mom thinks she can get me.

It would be full time, which would finally allow me to start getting my life together financially. It would also mean giving up most of my gaming time which of course means my backlog of over 100 games would be pretty much kaput.

It would also be a front desk job at an OB clinic. That just sounds like the perfect setup for extremely awkward and/or uncomfortable situations. I already did my time in healthcare as an orderly, and it was anything but fun (Okay, it was kind of fun, but only because it was in a hospital, and working in a hospital is pretty much like being on the set of Scrubs  [no, really... Scrubs was easily the most accurate portrayal of hospital staff on TV]). It also would pretty much just be another dead end in terms of career goals.

So yeah, negatives definitely outweigh the positives, but damnit I really want a PS4 by September for Destiny.

He's brushing his teeth with an invisible toothbrush.

And now I can't unsee it.

Some Professor Layton puzzles can suck butt.

The last bonus puzzle is always, "Now for something pretty much impossible"
Never did solve the one for Unwound Future.

Haven't been playing much lately. Guess that's what happens when there's less than a week until a game is released you've been waiting two and a half years to play. So I've just been dabbling in some FFXII, Bravely Default, FFIV: The After Years, and some Kingdom Rush on Steam. Obviously haven't made a lot of progress on any of those, though I did finish Ceodore's chapter in TAY this morning.

Castlevania on NES, Castlevania Dracula X on SNES, Rondo of Blood, Super Castlevania 4 -> Pick one, they are all extremely difficult.
The hardest thing ever for me tho was Lightning Returns final boss, I was massively underequipped tho, I basically had the default equips you always get from story segments and didnt do any of the challenges in the final dungeon.

The reward for finishing those trials (which weren't too difficult, actually) is Ultima Weapon, which is just an upgraded version of the beginning sword, but it gives you +2500 Strength/Magic. I had that thing equipped and I still felt like the final boss was a bit too much.

As long as that umbrella is her weapon of choice, I'm game.

I'm a bit strange in that while I love video games that take place mostly in space, I can't stand that particular brand of sci-fi in other media. I guess I'll have to go with Star Wars since it's less of a "space voyage" story, but I'm really not the biggest fan of either.

Nearly 15 years later and this music still gets my adrenaline pumping. Everything about FFIX floored me back then, I remember my hands shaking this particular scene was so exciting.
