Really? Last Idea Factory game I played was Mugen Souls. Game was freaking horrible. Game before Hyperdimensional Neptunia Mk2 which was meh. One before that was Agarest War 2 which was actually good. My graph of the quality of their games looks like they are going down (although I admit I don't remember if that is actually playing them in release order). I suppose Victory looks alright, but I do not have high hopes for the company at this point.

I am not calling them a good developer. It just seems to me that they are moving away from being a bad developer into being a niche one. Most of the problems I have with them have less to do with their story and gameplay, and more to do with how they over complicate things like menus as well as the horribly horrible load times their old games had. Their games still have some of these issues but from what I have seen, nowhere near the extent of their old games.

They are pretty...um...Digimon-esque.

I got the same impression. Which is strange as I think most of this gen give off a Dragon Quest vibe.

This sounds very meh to me. I mean I love the Record of Agarest War series (for concept more than anything else, although I will call 2 a good game), but most of the rest of the stuff Idea Factory comes out with ranges from meh to crap imo. I mostly get their stuff to support NISA (who I love). If they drop NISA I really am not sure I will be bothering to get their stuff anymore beyond any currently unannounced Record of Agarest War stuff.

I actually think Idea Factory have really improved recently. They always had interesting ideas but unlike similar developers like STING, executed them horribly.

If you don't mind subtitles, you should watch the Spanish horror REC.

I also love other Spanish movies such as The Orphanage and Pan's Labyrinth.

Not a horror but The Road is probably the most terrifying movie I watched. For very different reasons to horror movies though.

Breaking Bad

I loved the scene  where Jessie was making the box. I actually thought the Nazis had begun to trust Jessie and were allowing him some privileges but noooope. Daydream.

Speaking of the Neo Nazis, I love how they were not carrying around pictures of Hitler or Nazi flags. Hell, the whole white supremacy thing was downplayed. I could see other shows tossing that stuff in which I think would have ruined Jack and his crew.

Oh God. Todd and his Lydia ringtone. Cringe worthy but such a Todd thing to do.

Breaking Bad

A great end to a great series.

The suspense in the first 10 minutes was unreal.

Poor Huell is probably still waiting in that room :(

Rewatching episodes from Tru Calling, Daily Edition and Quantum Leap.

<3 Quantum Leap.

Just beat Halatali with a healer today. Got complimented after the Firemane battle which was awesome. It seemed like every wisp entered the fire and exploded causing large damage over a long period. Had to spam Medica to keep everyone alive and ran out of MP just as the fight ended. My favourite fight yet. The Ichorous Ire was probably my favourite boss strategically but Firemane pushed me to my limits. I had never actually used Medica before the fight, disliking how it drew the enemies like a moths to the fire.

SMT Devil Summoner Soul Hackers.

Only just reached the Auto Plant. Having a blast so far. My strategy seems to be Nemisa attacks and my 5 other meat shields try to keep the enemies attention.

Harvest Moon:  New Beginning

Things have gotten a lot more fun after the first month.

Just heard someone directly call their dad, father to their face. Creeped me the fuck out.

Son: What do you think of the town, father? Has it changed much since you left?

I have no problem with people calling them father when they are talking about them but it was the first time I ever heard it being used in that manner.

On a brighter note, Clare won the All-Ireland. Ridiculous amount of goals but it was a decent match. I don't support Clare but really didn't want Cork to win.

I never trade in any games so I don't really have the same issue.

I will however really want to play games I lent to friends soon after giving them. It doesn't go away until I get them back, play them for five minutes and move on.

The Worlds End

I enjoyed the movie although it wasn't as funny as I was expecting it to be.

Big Fish
Loved this movie so much. I liked how it blended the truth and lies together.

I liked it. The only issue I had with it was with those sunglasses. It just looked like they were trying way to hard to give off that cool vibe. Of course, with the flashing lights they make sense but it doesn't stop them looking ridiculous.

Am I the only one happy with Snows new look? I wasn't a fan of his look in XIII-2 at all. He actually looks like how I imagined him without the bandanna in XIII now.

Breaking Bad was great as always. Only one episode left now. This may be the first long running show I have seen that will end on a high point.

Grey Matter! Doubt anything will happen this late though.

Officially gave up on Harvest Moon: Animal Parade.  The controls are a bit wonky and load times and no fast travel are trying my patience. I only got the red bell before calling it quits.  I really thought I would like Harvest Moon since I loved Rune Factory 3.  I am still going to give the series a shot.   Most likely it will be the new 3ds one.

I really like Harvest Moon A New Beginning but it might be an expensive buy if you are not sure about it. You should know that the first month is a giant tutorial and is slow as molasses but it really picks up after that. Harvest Moon DS is pretty good and I really liked More Friends of mineral Town for GBA. They don't have the village creation aspect that A New Baginning has though.

Rune Factory Frontier is awesome if you don't have it. It is my favourite after Rune Factory 3. Oceans is not that great and is probably my least favourite of the 5 Rune Factory games released in the west.
