What kind?  Kheema curry? Kadai paneer?  Aloo gobi?  You can't mention curry to an Indian guy without details.

Since I mentioned it, Festival of the Hunt music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlKLisPzurs

And FF9 has one of my all time favorite town themes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IADdaVLA18E

And it's definitely pervy how much attention Garnet/Dagger's ass gets.  Between Zidane's "ooo soft" and the camera focusing on it big time when she trances... hell, even Amano gave her an ass: http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120804125847/finalfantasy/images/f/f3/AmanoGarnet.jpg

...yeah, no.  Chibi jailbait ass ain't my thang.  I can't diss her, though.  She was my MVP during the final battle.

I played some Chrono Cross today!  Wowee!

I defeated the Earth Dragon.  Earth Dragon was a total pushover.  It cast no elements and I was easily able to summon Frog Prince on it.  

I also defeated the Fire Dragon.  I honestly thought he'd be tougher.  I kept trying to go blue for Frog Prince, but he kept countering with a weak fire attack, so I pretty much kept that up and defeated him with minimal damage since he never cast anything stronger.  Even Fargo only took 50 hits of damage at a time, and he's blue.  

Then I faced Sky Dragon.  Sky Dragon did not chew me up and spit me out- she chewed me up and shit me out.  That fight's gonna be a rough one.  

My teams for these battles were Lynx, Fargo, and Miki.

EDIT: And when I was checking "who's online?" I saw a guest reading this and had to post it again.  It's your handywork, Ms. Dicey!  http://www.rpgfan.com/boards/index.php?topic=8467.0

I have another RPGFan project or two on the horizon, so my Chrono Cross coverage will be spotty.

I read Hans Christian Anderson's "The Snow Queen" and while I liked it, I felt like it could have been so much better.  I wanted more backstory into everyone and everything.  I also felt that everything happened too smoothly and neatly, though there was a plot point that revealed why that was.  The one thing I did like was that it flipped the script- it wasn't the boy rescuing the girl from capture, but the girl rescuing the boy.  I easily see where Disney took snippets of inspiration from this story for Frozen.  

And I just started The Alloy of Law.  I've only read the prologue and
Code:
just as I was getting into the characters, Lessie gets killed off.  I was hoping to see more of her since I dig strong female protagonists and I have a soft-spot for "gals with guns" given my enjoyment of anime like Noir.
 This should be good, though.  Looking forward to the next book already, which is said to be coming in October.

Man, I STILL need to read the first book of Stormlight Archive.  I'm guessing I'll like it so I'll want to continue.  Hopefully I'll finish both of those before the third book drops in 2016.  And this is not counting all the classics I still have yet to read, like The Three Musketeers; or anticipating the next Song of Ice and Fire book.  So many books, so little time!

Well, the reviews are in: http://www.rpgfan.com/news/2015/2645.html

Festival of the hunt had good music too.

It's a sad state of affairs that in this day and age, a dude who's a violent drunk is actually more socially acceptable than a dude who likes unicorns.

The name Jupiter Jones reminds me of the Three Investigators books I read as a kid.

I only experienced one crash so far on the 3DS version, so that version seems to run the cleanest.  It still has some bugs (like passing-through-locked doors type bugs) but nothing I couldn't circumvent with some ingenuity. 

But, yeah, the tl;dr version of my upcoming review will pretty much be one of my dating analogies- a girl who makes a fantastic first impression, but once you start dating her for a while, she proves to be more of a nuisance than anything.

But once Serge becomes Lynx, you cherry pick big time.  It took me multiple permutations to get through some boss fights. 

And thinking about Star Ocean 2, Noel got shafted.  He was a jack-of-all-trades, but his commands never took advantage of his healing skills and he ended up being a confused mess.  Being a jack-of-all-trades did not work within SO2's gameplay system.  My main party in that game was always a no-brainer: Claude, Ashton, Celine, Rena.  I know some people swear by the Claude, Ashton, Dias, Rena party but that gives you no way to take down flying enemies.

How about Chrono Cross?  Granted, there are times when picking and choosing is pretty easy, but there are other times when it's not.

Same here.  It's my date analogy all over again. The girl is totally your type, but you're just not that into her for some reason.

Just got back from Syracuse, where I played my farewell show with the band last night and did a ceremonial "changing of the guard" with the new bassist.  I'm completely and utterly dead, but it was worth it.  The band's fanbase in the Syracuse area is unreal and I owed it to them to make an appearance.  Faces were melted, tears were shed, shenanigans occurred, and now I watch Super Bowl and sleep.

I'll +1 that, Randiel.  The gameplay didn't really engage me either, but the visual style, story, and characters were too over-the-top to ignore.
