Another reference I remember is in that enchanted forest when Zidane has to collect the fragments of a story and piece them together, that story he collects is the plot of Final Fantasy 2. 

When I replayed FF9 on PSN to review for the site, I renamed Garnet/Dagger to "Keris" because it's a really cool looking dagger: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kris

Black Mage Village is one of my all time favorite town themes. 

Several of Mooncalf's parody fics for FF9 are amusing (http://mooncalf.org/library/parody/) but my favorite is definitely Eiko's Boyfriend: http://mooncalf.org/library/parody/eikosboyfriend.html (Tell me that's not how the final battle should have ended!)

This one is funny too: http://mooncalf.org/library/parody/wwtomato.html

My favorite part is still in Lindblum when Zidane comments on a cheesy suit or armor in a shop, then later on Steiner goes into the shop and comments on what a fine suit of armor it is. 

I liked it, can't you tell? http://www.rpgfan.com/reviews/finalfantasy9-psn/index.html

Magnolia Thunderpussy?  

I've heard of this southern-fried metal band called Alabama Thunderpussy, but never this Magnolia Thunderpussy.  I like that name.

The 3DS version has an auto-save so no worries there if you forget to manually save.

I didn't do screen grabs in my Chrono Cross journal. 

And Wild Arms 2 has a killer battle theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yGOJQf8-PA

Yeah, Start Dash.  I haven't ranked up high enough to access it yet, though, so I need to be patient.  Hence, I said accessible "to me" since I play at a different pace.

I am LOVING the new event song, Binetsu kara Mystery.  So good!

I look forward to when it and Dash! Are finally accessible to me as regular plays.

I also wonder if the differences are negligible depending on platform.  Like I said, here at RPGFan we have someone playing the PC version, someone playing the Vita version, and I'm playing the 3DS version.  I've had no major issues so far with the 3DS version.

Meanwhile...

Dincrest's Party

Roko: But I'm sure a brave warrior like you has been in there, at least a little bit to train.  

Dincrest: Actually, no I haven't.

Roko: What the hell kind of "brave warrior" are you?  You chicken?  Bawk bawkbawkbawk.

Dincrest:  *puffs out his chest and points his sword at Roko* Silence!  Unlike you, you foolhardy rogue, I am a sensible warrior.  Being brave doesn't mean you go looking for trouble.  

Roko: *cracks her whip* But how do you test your bravery without facing the unknown?  

Roko and Dincrest bicker and argue.

Alexandra tries to interject, but to no avail.  Fed up, she cast a low level water spell to splash them to get their attention, but not to drench them.  Can't have them catch cold now can you?

Alexandra: Both of you, stop fighting!  We are wasting time here.  We need to get back to Alex and the others.  Dincrest, you want to find the truth.  I'm curious why that boy Alex is so insistent that I'm his sister (thought bubble: though we do look alike).  And Roko, you're always spoiling for a fight and we may have one with the capitol itself.  So let's go down this aqueduct, stench be damned, and get moving... *suddenly meek* if it's not too much trouble.  

Dincrest: You're right, let's go.  It's my fault we backtracked all this way anyway.  

Roko: Damn right it is!  *whispers to Dincrest- didja see her sudden change from silent all this time to brazenly assertive to meek?  There's a lot more to this girl than meets the eye*

So the three proceed through a dungeon that resembles the tomb of the unknown king in Final Fantasy 8 (http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20080208073504/finalfantasy/images/2/23/Tomb_of_the_Unknown_King_6.jpg) but more slimy, more cramped, and more disgusting.  It's quite easy to get lost in this dungeon since everything looks the same and there are some rather foul enemies, but eventually the party reaches a point where the earsplitting "frogfanny" sound shakes their very core and jiggles their bowels.  The follow the sound to the boss battle:  A giant...

Super Bowl is Seattle Seahawks vs. New England Patriots... shoot me.  I don't really like either team (EDIT: Though at least Dallas Cowboys are out; they're my least favorite sports team.)  I was hoping for a Packers-Colts super bowl.  I liked the Packers this season and they should have won against Seattle, but they gave away a 12 point lead like a bunch of chumps.  As for the Colts, Andrew Luck is a great QB who needs some better receivers.  Imagine him on a team like the Eagles- see, the main reason Nick Foles and Mark Sanchez are decent is because of their receivers, otherwise they aren't great QBs at all.  

Then again, all teams I'm a fan of are either pathetic or iffy.  The Jets were terrible.  The Knicks are an embarrassment.  The Devils are floundering.  The Phillies have been falling apart.  The Union had a losing record.  (Union= Philly's major league soccer team.)

Status effects were a pain in that battle, but Carnivore killed me mainly because it did 200hp worth of damage.

Dice, you can't post that picture without this video to accompany it:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSiiJ8uvc60

My team was Lynx, Fargo, and Leah. 

I feel like I should've used Miki, because Leah went down leaving Lynx and Fargo to clean up.  And in prior dragon fights, Miki has been my MVP.  I'll admit, despite seeming like she'd be a lame throwaway character she's definitely grown on me.

Hah, love the pun.  I'm a fan of groaner puns.

It's amazing how stupid movies can be loads of fun when viewed with the right company.  For example, the movie Bad Teacher is as stupid as all get out, but I enjoyed it when watching it with my bandmates.

I just find idolizing my normals frustrating because I hardly get the doubles I need so I can collect more backstories and love gems.  I like how some normals have their own little side stories.  Like the three in the disciplinary committee (Hitomi Shiga, Chiduko Sakamaki, Mikoto Fukuhara).  

Anyway, my ID# in the game is 376726528 for anyone else playing.  Search and friend me.  

Random asides:
Regular "cool" Nico looks 100 times better than idolized "cool" Nico.  
Mikoto Fukuhara is the least attractive idol.  
I'm still trying to figure out whose story vignette I like best and whose "poke" dialogue I enjoy most.
My favorite song is definitely Mermaid Festa vol. 1, #2 is Natsuiro Egao de 1,2,3 Jump, and I may have to put Dash as my #3.  
And when it comes to 9-piece bands/groups, I wholeheartedly prefer μ's over Slipknot.
