Danganronpa 2

Really liking it so far. The trials are a bit more complex than the first game. They don't really shove the identity of the culprit in your face like the first one did. I think I preferred the setting and atmosphere of the first game but so far I probably prefer the second game more. The Zero Escape games have made me come up with theories about the game that might be slightly out there.

Code:
I have had suspicions about the main character and Nagito since the first trial and gotten stronger with each flashback. Random theory time where I can look back on this and realise how crazy/correct I was. I think Nagito is actually Hajime with his memories altered and the MC is someone else. Looking at Nagito's full name, it seems to be an anagram for Naegi Makota. I seriously hope this is a red herring like the trials are fans of since it just seems really lame. I wouldn't mind Nagito being a tranformed Ultimate Despair Naegi  rather than the MC discovering they are the ultimate hope Naegi at the last trial. As long as I don't get another Ultimate Hope ending I will be happy. It really lowered my overall opinion of the first game.

Theatrhythm

I have no idea why Aerith's Theme is a BMS. It screams FMS.

VLR

Got an urge to replay a bit of it and went down branch 3. The conversation about giving the lever a handjob has to be the most cringe worthy scene I have ever watched in any game I have played so far. It must go on for a good two or three minutes.

"Finished" Theatrhythm. The credits were cute. I really like when credits are not just a static background with a list of names scrolling down. Finally gotten used to Ultmate songs. I can beat the field songs and get an S or SS but battle songs are a bit more difficult. I can get an S in most but certain songs such as FFVIII Force your Way and Battle with the Four Fiends are just way beyond my skill level. I get destroyed in seconds.

Final Fantasy

Matoya's Cave
NES Version
Modern Version

I think I might actually prefer the NES version. It just feels like it has more charm somehow.

Final Fantasy Tactics - Trisection Battle theme 1
One of my favourite battle theme music.

Another person playing Theatrhythm. Loving it so far. My only complaint is that changing character abilities is a bit clunky.

A Medley Quest just gave me an Ultimate song to complete. My heart can't take that kind of pressure and pure panic that goes with them. Thankfully it was an FMS so I was able to manage it. Don't think I am at the level to do an Ultimate BMS. I have a similar problem to Klutz where Event songs just are not my thing and when I say that, I mean that I suck at them.

Jumped up to Pro League in Everybody's Golf.

Everybody's Golf/Hotshots Golf
I am really surprised at how much fun I am having with this. Got it with PS+ a long time ago but only tried it out now.

Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God
I apologise for not trusting you Star

I tried it at a friends and thought it was great.

Code:
The baby's screams got on my nerves after a while although every time it stopped, I started to panic

I thought Thomas Was Alone was great. It is a short easy game too. I had bought it as part of a bundle a long time ago but did not give it a go until recently. I think the biggest reason I ignored it for so long was that I looked at some screenshots and was not impressed. The narrator does a great job though and you forget that the main cast are squares and rectangles. If you buy PC bundles, you may already own it.

Two DS games I would recommend are Hotel Dusk: Room 215 and Ghost Trick. Neither are difficult games.

Crimson Shroud is really good but also pretty short. 'Tis also pretty cheap and it goes on sale regularly enough (not Atlus Sale regular)

There is also Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. I remember you saying you enjoyed the PS2 games on IRC before. The game is fun and the hit boxes have improved a lot. No wifi online though, just streetpass. MH4U is coming out next year though so you may want to wait. It also has multiplayer that uses wifi.

Not sure how you feel about dungeon crawlers but both Etrian Odyssey IV and Untold are great.
You must be nuts sir, I have a serious HATE for monster hunter on any console really simply because of the controls. It drove me nuts trying to play the first one. But I'll take a peek at crimson shroud.

All I remember from our Monster Hunter conversation from ages ago was you were passionate about the game. Note to self, passion =/= like.

I really liked Crimson Shroud. I was still playing it after I had beaten the game. Anyone else who played it can put in their Yay or Nay opinion on its quality.

FFX
Up to the final dungeon in FFX. Things have changed a bit compared to my PS2 playthrough. Rikku has become the Kimahri of the team, Yuna is my new black mage and Valefor is my most powerful Aeon. Kimahri is actually slightly useful now too. He heals my team outside of battle, can destroy machina with Steal and has decent buffs and debuffs. Of course he can't hit for shit and has lowish HP. Still, Stone Breath has saved me more than once.

Digimon World
I suck so bad at that shopping minigame.

I would be very surprised if they removed S.Links. For better or worse, a large percentage of people play Persona 3 and 4 primarily for them.

I am in the group that would like to see some improvements with the dungeons. I loved the games but I was never really impressed with the dungeon layouts in Persona 3 or 4.

I need to start making a dent into my backlog. I don't even count my steam library as part of it. Bundles have increased it by a horrible amount. I am thinking of trying to make it a goal to beat at least one PS1 game and one PS2 game a year and replace them with a newer console/handheld once I have cleared all of them. I might try something like Klyde and set aside the weekend gaming time for them.

Took a Reasoning Test for a job I was interested in. It was basically math, basic physics and pattern puzzles. There were about twenty of us there taking it but I am sure there were a lot more taking it throughout the week. I think it went pretty good. Well enough that I got called for an interview anyway. I think I got all but one question correct which is good since my previous work experience is pretty shite compared to a lot of the other people applying but hopefully the interview goes well.

I went into the Reasoning Test with a grey shirt and jeans which was actually overkill with how everyone else was dressed. Still, I think I will wear a suit to the interview. That said, I fucking love suits. They basically suit hur hur hur everyone. I can't think of anyone who looks bad in a normal suit. I am also thinking on whether to go clean shaven or with a neatly trimmed beard. Normally I would say that it is common sense to go to an interview clean shaven but I am like fifteen to twenty years younger than everyone else applying for the job. Wondering if I should play it safe and go clean shaven or risk looking like a hipster/homeless man in an attempt to look more mature.
