Just finished the game today. The first two thirds really reminded me of Dragon Quest VII. I really enjoyed it although
Code:
if you have a name and look different from generic NPC's you have a 75% chance of dying.

As Dragon Quest IV was the last Dragon Quest I played I kind of missed the accents. They were there just not as much. Still it did have a lot of puns.

If I want to clear some games from my backlog I try to find if one of my friends has the game but has yet to complete it. This usually gives me the motivation to try to beat it first. I do not rush playing, it is just I am less likely to suddenly switch to another game.

Maybe it is slightly petty but it is not as if I tell the other person there is a secret competition going on.

That risk factor is what draws certain people to these games though. Although it allowed you to keep your map progress, Etrian Odyssey could be just as harsh.  If they did make the changes you mention it may allow other gamers to enjoy it more but it could also lose that attractiveness that drew people to it in the first place.

The only thing that really annoyed me about SJ was when in the middle of negotiating they say "I want 1,005,002 Macca. Only joking, did you believe me?"

I did not mind it when Faeries did it because, well... they are Faeries. It really got on my nerves after a while though.

Half minute hero is a great game but also very short. It is also pretty easy until Hero 300 and Hero 3.

It's funny, when I was a kid my Gran would use an ice cream scoop on the mashed potatoes, and you would get little mounds of mashed potato. Now I do that myself, I can't enjoy them unless they are like ice cream scoops.

I have it the same way. To be honest I was not aware there was another way. I cannot imagine eating it when it is just mush. You need to get your fork and cut one of the scoops in half before eating them.

As much as I hate stereotypes the truth is that a lot of Irish people love potatoes. I mean having it in one form or another at least once a day. I remember a while back my mother always going "So, you are tired of potatoes?. Then lets have Chips today (You call them fries) today"

I got rid of how we would actually say that. Although I love Ireland rain and all, I can see how it would be a grammar Nazi's hell.

Fried potatoes and lamb are wonderful. Pity I have no idea how to cook it.

It does have certain jumps in difficulty. The first is probably in the first area where B2 stops being an ice cave and becomes a war torn city.

What I mainly do is try to map out the entire area in short journeys. By the time you finish that area's map you should have gained a few levels. Take your time and try to get a healer and a buffer/debuffer. Also  check to see have you unlocked any new weapons or armour. You may not need them but grinding is always easier when you have a goal.

 One thing to avoid is constantly talking to demons in which you already own one. If you keep doing this the lack of exp will really come back to haunt you.

As long as no one preses the end of the world button, we will be alright.

My guess is if the world does end in 2012 it will be a self fulfilling prophecy. Some person could just be sitting at his/her computer and be thinking to themselves "hmm so I have two more years until the deadline, better hurry".

I often just let the world map music play.

I just finished playing FFTA. The story seemed pretty poor compared to FFT during my first playthrough. This time around I changed my perspective of it.

Marche: A young boy who is prepared to commit the mass genocide of an entire world in order to return home.

Montblanc: A nihilistic moogle who grows tired of awaiting the inevitable.

Code:
Doned: "Marche, I can walk. It is a miracle"
Marche: "Enjoy it while you can brother dear. Soon you shall be returning to your forsaken wheelchair"

Ritz: "It is amazing. For the first time I can accept myself for who I really am"
Marche: "Um, about that. I kind of need to kill Mewt's mother to destroy this world and return it to its former glory. Will you help me Ritz?"
Ritz: *Unsheathes sword*
Marche: "...You disappoint me Ritz"

Mewt: "Look Marche, My mother is alive and my father is back to behaving how he used to act"
Marche: "Hehe... well this is kind of awkward. I kind of need to kill your mom but do not worry everything will turn back to normal. Your mom will stay dead, your dad will turn back into a loser and a lifetime of being bullied awaits you.
Mewt: huh?
Marche: "And what was with turning everyone who bullied you into zombies? You know, just for the chuckles, I am going to leave your precious bear behind when we go home"

I was dragged along to see twilight. It was pretty bad although not as awful as I was expecting. It was probably because I did not take it that seriously. I have realised it is not twilight itself I hate(I greatly dislike it) but the rabid fans. There is nothing wrong with liking something but the fanbase joins the ranks of FF7 and Narutos.

Personally, I prefer it as it is. It is useful for a WRPG fan to hear the opinion another WRPG fan might have about a specific JRPG or vice-versa. On the other hand people may prefer to have it divided so as the conversation about each of the two gets more detailed.
