I ended up buying a lot of games at GOGs insomnia sale. Playing Deus Ex for the first time. Graphics are actually pretty decent and the game is really fun. Just finished the first mission using stealth.

Also started playing Neverwinter nights. Fun game so far although I have only beaten the prologue bit.

Finished the demo. It was really fun and a lot more challenging than I expected. I didn't wipe but the boss fights were not just simply spam attack. The visuals are also nice. The music that was shown was great and I  like the town building aspect too.

My only complaint is that a lot of the costumes don't seem to fit the character. Knight looks awesome on all four and Swordmaster suits most of them but others just seem really off. I thought white mage looked terrible on everyone and Black Mage seemed off on the females. The White Mage and Black Mage female costumes try to go for a sexy look that kind of falls flat with the cute designs of the characters I like the Final Fantasy series red mage design but the look here just felt off. It would be a better fit for a Dancer class.

EDIT: Whoa, whoa, whoa. I was looking through the menu system and just discovered you can change the encounter rate. Increase it to high levels if you want to grind or turn random encounters off completely if you want to reach a boss at full HP or reaturn to battle.  This is probably all old hat to all of you but it really surprised me. I did not know anything about this game before laying the demo.

Continually restarting to get the right IVs/nature for a legendary is a pain.

Pokemon with the Synchronizer ability solve the nature problem

I enjoyed Dice's post so much I'm going to start up FF13 right now and play it.

I am starting to think half of RPGFan live within walking distance of each other.

Most of the plot in FFXIII felt pretty irrelevant in FFXIII-2 though. Only thing that seemed important was the epilogue.

We can go for hours if you want talking about this.

Long story short though is that XIII wasn't a trilogy at first but then XIV 1.0 and other shenanigans happened at SQEX and the story was expanded. Was that bad? No. Should people be all nitpicky about it? Yeah why not, but you know how opinions work in the Internet.

Point is that the story was expanded in a nice way and the connection of the three games goes as far as it need to go to leave every game to be its own thing in the process.

Didn't mean it in a bad way. Just saying that Klyde will not be missing much if he goes into FFXIII-2 without having a great memory of the first game.

I would like to think I would create something for the greater good but if I was able to do one thing it would probably be a way to make myself immortal and also stop aging. I can tell right now that it would be terrible.

One way has me being the only human capable of it meaning I have to watch my loved ones all die before me and avoid being "examined" to see if others can duplicate it. Avoiding all that, I would eventually become the equivalent of a Homo Habilis in the modern world due to evolution. If everyone becomes immortal, overpopulation leads to shortage of supplies and space which leads to war and death.

Given that I'm addicted as a fiend to Pokemon Y (especially playing dress-up), a friend suggested I should try out the game Style Savvy: Trendsetters.  On his recommendation, I tried out the demos (I annihilated the competition in the fashion show demo) and now I need to put some pennies aside to buy the game.  It seems to combine Recettear (which I was pretty addicted to 3 years ago) with my favorite part of Pokemon Y. 

Whoa whoa whoa, a game is being even slightly compared to Recettear?  Off I go to find more about this game.

As for what I'm playing, Disgaea PSP. I think I'm at the final battle... the boss is like LV 90 and all my peeps are under LV65... guess I should grind? I feel like I'm not playing this game how it should be played though (finding ways to level up fast, and I haven't even touched transmigration). I'm gonna mess around more with the Item World, I didn't do much of that throughout the game. Whatevs.

Slight tip that verges on exploiting the game
You can pick up bosses and they only hurt the one carrying them.
Everyone but one person attacks the boss
Last person picks up the boss
Character probably dies
Rinse and repeat until the boss is dead.

I didn't think Tierkreis was a bad rpg. I actually had a lot of fun with it. It is however a bad Suikoden, spin off or not. Collecting the 108 stars of destiny changes nothing and simply adds in one small scene that probably happened after the standard ending anyway.
