Blizzard of 2016 seemed to hit my area harder than yours.  You do not want to be near Philly, the shore (massive flooding in Ocean City), Delaware, or the Lehigh Valley.

I don't know if I'm allergic to avocados (I'm not allergic to latex which is said to cross-react), but I do know they make me queasy so I avoid eating them.  And it's easier for me to say I'm allergic to them, than have to hem-haw explain my aforementioned sentence.  It kinda sucks since they are good for you and being a vegetarian now, having one less food I can eat kinda sucks.

Sweet! Thanks Bob.

Ultimate grilled cheese= brie + mint + dark chocolate.  (Though with all that stuff about chocolate slavery in African cacao farms exploiting child labor, stripping people of human rights, and overharvesting to the point where we might not even have chocolate 20 years from now, I'm going to have to find another sweetener for this sandwich.  Maybe honey or maple syrup or agave nectar.)

UPDATE: Another couple of voice actor interviews are in the works. 

I'm glad the interviews with voice actors is something that resonates with folks here.

Mana Khemia is a game that's gotten positive feedback from readers and staff, but I despised it.  I loved other Atelier games (Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana was fantastic, Atelier Iris 2: The Azoth of Destiny was even better, Atelier Annie: Alchemists of Sera Island was delightful) and games in the Atelier vein (Recettear) and wanted to like Mana Khemia since I like school settings, but I did not enjoy it at all.  

I did not enjoy Ar-Tonelico either.  I wanted to like it because the artwork was cool, I dug the magical futuristic setting, and the music was really good, but I found the characters and dialogue really stupid.

Ahaha I remember when the late 80s, early 90s be all BANDS OF ROVING COOL KIDS ARE GONNA MAKE YOU SMOKE WEED
I wonder if that's why I never talked to anyone when I was younger.


...and then when you're in college or young adulthood, you learn the joy of watching cartoons while under the influence of some intoxicant.  Especially that one you just linked.

EDIT: Although, truth be told, I found that whole peer pressure thing more with alcohol than drugs.  Like if a bowl's being passed around, just passing it along to the next person without taking a hit is fine.  And even just saying, "No thanks, I'm good" when offered just gets you an, "alright, that's cool man."  At best, you get involved in weirdly tangential conversations about nothing and everything.  At worst, you get involved in weirdly tangential conversations about nothing and everything. 

But drinking's a whole 'nother story.  Someone offers you a beer and you say, "Oh, no thanks.  I don't drink" they look at you like you're a two headed alien like, "WTF you don't drink?!?!  What the hell's the matter with you?"  Or they'll shove a shot in your face, try to force feed you.  

I live an intoxicant free lifestyle (June will mark 2 years of living intoxicant free, and I'm revisiting my vegetarian roots this year), and I'd rather hang out with stoners than drunks any day.  I'll take weirdly tangential conversations over being ridiculed and peer pressured into doing something I don't want to do.

Summon Night 5 aside, seeing all these posts of people with hundreds of must-play games in the backlog or so many must-play games vying for attention- this truly is a fantastic era to be a gamer.  You know, the majority of gaming I do is for RPGFan and I tend to focus more on games that fall under the radar.  So while the average Fred is looking for the next big thing, I'm that guy looking for the next sleeper hit.

I love when death metal bands have a sense of humor.  Obituary is one of my favorites.

Oh My God did that couple just marry their ponies?!

...No?

...Damn...

I just want to know who's bright idea it was to put brown ribbons on the ponies' tails.  It makes it look like they're pooping and said manure is in suspended animation not ready to drop.

I enjoyed Summon Night 5 a LOT more than I expected to.  And don't forget, the Summon Night games we'd gotten before (the ones for GBA and DS) were the spinoff/gaiden action-RPGs and this was the first of the SRPG series we've gotten.  

EDIT: Is Summon Night 5 perfect?  No.  It is for everyone?  No.  Should it get more attention than it's getting?  Absolutely.  Especially since 2015 was such a solid year for SRPGs (new Disgaea, new Devil Survivor, Shadowrun Hong Kong), I want to give another solid genre entry a shout out.

FF4 was like Saturday morning cartoons for me.  GBA version was the best, I think.

My review is up on the front page for anyone interested.

I hear that, dude.  My knee problems last year prevented me from training as hard as I normally do for bike-a-thon season and my performance was terrible, by my standards.  My knees are healing up, but I'm focusing my fitness/training efforts for endurance rather than speed.  I don't need to finish at a B pace, but I want to finish without my legs locking up 5/6ths of the way through the 67 mile ride.  The thought of my knee failing on me scares me to death.  Cycling is my greatest joy in life and I was depressed beyond comprehension last year when I couldn't do it as much.

Why did they hate it?  I can imagine if you went in with expectations of the film being a life-altering cultural phenomenon like the original Star Wars was back in 1977, you will be disappointed.  But if you went in just expecting it to be a fun, rollicking, space fantasy romp then you'd enjoy it. 

I feel like the Star Wars fanbase, like most any rabid fanbase really, often takes things too seriously. 

Of course, Finn needs to rethink his love interest.  Everyone who falls in love with someone force-sensitive always gets screwed.  Padme falls in love with Anakin and fate gave her a raw deal.  Han falls in love with Leia and fate gave him a raw deal.  Maybe Finn will be the combo breaker.
