I don't hate people who do it, it's their prerogative, I just think the act of doing it is stupid.
What's the point of having something you have no interest in playing? Idk it's weird, I get your point but at the same time I don't think it applies fully to video games.
There are people out there who are probably interested in playing that game but instead some random hoarder has it in their collection with no intention of touching it.. They can do it sure.. but it doesnt mean that it isn't kind of douchey.

Some people get their enjoyment from different things. I disagree with it not applying to videogames. I think it actually fits pretty well. Some people might want to collect every GBC game or PS1 rpg. I don't have the cash or interest to do something like that but woudn't fault anyone due to it. Still have memories of collecting pokemon stickers as a kid.

It shouldn't be as much an issue anymore due to the large amount of games new and old available as digital downloads (Huge filesizes aside) I have no issue with people like that. They bought the game, it is theirs. Don't really see how it is douchey.

People who buy games in mass to sell at an inflated price do annoy me but you can't really call them collectors.

Yeah those people who collect for collecting sake make me sick..

That seems a bit extreme. It isn't any stranger than collecting stamps or books. I don't collect anything for the sake of collecting myself but wouldn't hate on anyone that does. Although I have a decent sized backlog they are all games I plan to play when I have the time.

Etrian Odyssey Untold

Trying to beat the boss on floor 15. Think I will have to rest Raquna to get Ice Wall to level 5.

So... after my run-in with Salamander this morning, can I assume you're not actually *supposed* to pursue the Vampire side quest in Chapter 4?

It is doable in Chapter 4. The six of them were more of a pain for me than that quests final boss. Despite how a lot of their attacks look, they are all physical, making skills like rampart and protect really useful. This is from memory but I think all six use their elemental weakness attack every three turns. If you have Group cast all you can cast dispel and protect on the whole party rather than one individual. It is a level 14 Black Mage skill but you can use it if one of your friends have it unlocked or you have gone way overboard on the grinding.

You can also use a cheaper method like 4 ninjas using Utsuemi and counter. It won't even be able to hit you.

Speaking of Xboxes doing stupid things, mine thinks it's 22 November 2005 every day. All my save files on it are from 22 November 2005. Does it do that because I unplug it after I'm done playing or is it stuck in a time loop?


We need to go back... to the future!

2) It'll cost you a finger.

Sign me up, I got like thirty of those fuckers.
Human biology has taught me that humans have 10 fingers and 10 toes...

Something's off here.

Nobody said they have to be your own.

It might just be bad memories with soggy vegetables. I can stop it now but there are few things that taste worse than soggy veggies to me. I had to unlearn a lot of home cooking when I started cooking for myself.

I have to force myself to eat frozen vegetables. It is even worse if they are mixed frozen vegetables. It is actually one of the reasons I decided to learn how to cook properly.

Huge fan of Dungeon Crawlers. The game looks great.

Wonder if the images are mirrored or if the artist is left handed. Two of the characters seem to be left handed as well as one of the monsters. The Dwarf may be as well. Not sure as it looks like a two handed weapon. Yay for the lefties!

Aww, just looked at the linked pictures and the first one seems to be right handed :(

I don't know about Cyril but the two big ones for me were


The 1st point is easy. We already know how crazy Monokuma is in following the rules, he did it for the sake of consistency and that's part of Junko Enoshima's personality, she wants to create despair under fair circumstances for the participants.
The 2nd point is a little harder, I do admit that you probably need to just accept it as part of the cartoony nature of the game but at the same time there have been RL cases where babies fell off really high apartments(just google baby survives after falling off the apartment or something and many articles should pop up, doesnt need to be babies, it also happened to people) but survived relatively unscathed by falling into something relatively soft. Not to mention that they necessarily didn't have to make the height so big, they could have easlily made the trash thing much closer to the upper floor and call it a day, don't know why they didnt do that.. I did think about that when it happened but I decided to not dwell on it becase it was not a big deal

My issue is more with why the other characters automatically assume there is a tub of butter in there rather than it being elsewhere. Kirigiri probably searched but we did not and it is never even mentioned. It seemed really strange for no one to even consider it.

I put the fall down to "it is just a game". Seriously doubt the developers were thinking about babies surviving large falls or anything similar. More likely than not it was due to it looking cooler or something.

I have gotten used to my new 2DS. Tried the 3DS and it felt really awkward to hold. Still looks like tacky as heck though. I was really surprised to find that the European e-shop is better at telling you what is new than the American one. Also tried my old PSP and it is tiny compared to the vita.

The brutality of the first execution was what really cemented my opinion of the game.  Though I did think the first one was probably the worst, given it probably took a lot longer to die than the others. Well, except the last one, obviously.

Anyway, it's a great game.  You have to purposely overlook a few things that cause plot holes, but most are minor enough that it doesn't matter.  It would have been better if the original plan for multiple routes was implemented, but hey, that's what DR3 and on is for.

What holes?
There were things left unexplained but I don't remember any holes.

I don't know about Cyril but the two big ones for me were

they made such a big deal about the number of lights at the morgue which makes sense... until you realise that Mondo was now an empty tub of butter and would not need to be in the morgue. The bodies were left there to be preserved and plastic doesn't degrade that quickly.

I can overlook the Deus Ex Machina of Naegi being saved from the execution at the last second but how the hell did both Kirigiri and Naegi survive that fall? No way a pile of trash would cushion a fall of that height, especially in Kirigiri's case.

Finished SMT IV. Had a lot of fun with it. Probably wait a few months before trying another path.

Oblivion probably has my favourite Thieves Guild and Fighters Guild in the series. Dark Brotherhood was great too. Probably had more fun with Oblivion's Dark Brotherhood quest line than I did with any other faction in the series.

My main issues with the game were the dungeons and enemy level scaling. Wasn't a fan of how Bandits eventually all had glass armour and certain enemies disappeared from the game entirely. I like Morrowind's method the best although I do like how Skyrim took the Oblivion route and improved it.

I replayed the game earlier this year and really liked something I didn't really appreciate on my first playthrough. The game is so damn colourful. In a world filled with brown and grey games, it really stood out. The game still looks great if you ignore character models.

I really like Suikoden IV. I have probably played it the most out of any game in the series. Don't really shout it out loud in front of other people though.
