Philly was a bit of a letdown, besides the Mutter Museum. The lines were forever long to see the Liberty bell or get into the Museum, so we said screw it. Plus the city was too congested, and had a funk about it.
 

There's a reason they call it "Filthadelphia."

It's clear Dice-chan was delightfully frunk. 

Last time I drunk-posted at RPGFan, I botched up the whole anti-Valentine's month "Romance Novel Avatar" community thing a few years ago.  Oopsie, sorry. 

Maybe I'm not reading it right but I imagine botching an "anti-Valentines" event a good thing unless you were actually being romantic?

This was an RPGFan thing a few years back.  It was purely a shits 'n giggles thing.

This is my SOTM:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RrshPMtH0CY  It's the "Love Hime" theme song that Onoda (and Tadokoro) sing in Yowamushi Pedal, and at the 1 minute mark of the video seeing all those high performance bicycles with anime wheels- it's everything I like in the world!  

And here's Onoda and Tadokoro singing the Love*Hime song in Yowamushi Pedal.  That was a defining moment in the story.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmiqUNutaRQ

Re: "Persona Office."  As someone said earlier, we saw hints of that in Persona 2: Eternal punishment, what with all the characters being professional adults, several of whom were dealing with identity crises.  Not the least of which was
Code:
police office Katsuya Suou whose heart's desire was to be a pastry chef.
  And there is that whole theme of your "self" outside of work, weekend warrior, that kind of thing.  Like the teacher who races bicycles on the side, or the neurobiologist who draws comics on the side, etc.  And adults have been in far more relationships than kids, and those change a person big time.

Read every Yowamushi Pedal on Batoto and I'm totally left hanging.  Hime! Hime! Hime!

And I just got my copy of Battle Angel Alita: Last Order Omnibus vol. 4 and am reading that.  Alita is still my favorite manga.

Question / prompt: What are some RPGs that are just okay or maybe average, because they're missing something?  Like, C+ RPGs that would become A- RPGs if they made one small-to-medium-sized adjustment or corrected one flaw.  I would love to hear each regular panelist provide an answer. 

I'd have to go through my backlog of reviews because I know I have several where I felt like a teacher screaming at a child "But you have so much potential!!!" 

First one that comes to mind is Fate/Extra.  Excellent visual novel, lousy RPG.  A few minor tweaks to the RPG elements (e.g. less vague battles and more interesting dungeons) and the game would have been better.

Techniques include 5 minutes of inner monologue on top of the hill and [singing anime songs] really loud while pedaling.

Fixed.

Still loving the hell out of Yowamushi Pedal.  It's now transcended being just a manga to being an experience.  I used some of the tips in Yowamushi Pedal in my own cycling and it's helping me become a stronger cyclist.  Just today, I did my usual training slope faster than I ever have and with higher gearing.  Boss!

Hope your August is a better month, Dagg.  

Haps... I don't know if anyone remembers the band 40 Below Summer (their hit single was "Self Medicate" which had a video on Headbanger's Ball in '03), but they headlined Smitefest this past weekend and my band played two sets.  We kicked off the 2nd stage after-party after 40 Below played (they liked us) and we played again the next day on the main stage.  

I never got into them, because I was never really into nu-metal in its heyday and "Self Medicate" was just another generic nu-metal song to me.  But at the show, they were playing mostly new (and new to me) material and I enjoyed it.  I love it when things turn my expectations upside down and open up the possibility of a change of heart.  And they were pretty chill guys, so that's always a plus.  I hate it when you get a chance to meet a band and they're douchewads.  And, hey, they're a New Jersey band so home state pride.

I've heard good things about Overdrive.  I'll stick with YP, though, mainly because I see so much of myself in Onoda that it's uncanny.

I'm at vol. 9 of Yowamushi Pedal on batoto.  Loving the series and badly want legit English releases of both the manga and anime.  Sports anime and manga are curious, aren't they?  Normally, I'm not into them at all, but I'm into this one because it's about a sport I enjoy and I relate to the main character big time.

About 10 chapters into Insurgent and enjoying it.

Badass? Wow I didn't know it was possible to be badass with a cookie ;)



It is.  The guttural growling vocals that death metal bands like Cannibal Corpse use are referred to as Cookie Monster vocals.

And like baby bears or baby tigers, they're adorable at first but they're gonna get bigger and more menacing.

Or maybe I've just been playing too many games that look all sweet but can be hardcore difficult, hence the whole cute=badass thing.  (E.g. Battle Princess, Squids Odyssey)
