5791  Media / Miscellaneous Games / KID never even had a chance to pass puberty yet... on: December 01, 2006, 04:34:22 PM

This makes me sad, because, well, I'm nuts about KID's love adventures.  Especially the Infinity series (that series has surpassed Megami Tensei as my favorite game series.)  Methinks I should import Remember 11 before it's too late, so I can have the complete series as a collector.  

Well, looks like Princess Soft will be the reigning love adventure monarch now.  Not that that's a bad thing.  Hourglass of Summer was AWESOME!

Glad you like Trace Memory, dude.  It's really short, but so damn good.  

Still, my favorite adventure games I've played recently were probably Ever 17: Out of Infinity and Hourglass of Summer.  Both are digital-comic style adventures (which is a more Japanese thing) and not the interactive kind like Monkey Island or Grim Fandango... but the stories are killer.

Britney Spears!  The horrifying sight blinded everyone, including "The Man" who dropped his remote while writhing in agony.  

Somehow, a dead Tauros' horn materialized into Dincrest's hands and he blindly threw it.  The horn lodged itself so deep into Britney's vagina that it ruptured her cervix, bowels, and intestines causing her to bleed immensely to her gruesome demise.  

The waterfall of sacrificial bitch blood awakened the rest of the metalheads who all proceeded to roar the song "Fucked by a Knife" by Cannibal Corpse.  Dincrest was thrashing about wildly on his Warwick, trying in vain to play as fast, furious, and technically rifftastic as Alex Webster.  

The whole fabric of space and time swirled into a hideous vortex of blood, bile, and the vomiting of the vilest blasphemic stench.  Tortured screams were heard in the background while the most menacing grunts and gurgles shattered eardrums and ripped all who witnessed it new assholes.  

The power of metal forced the RPGfanners to smash through the fourth wall and face "The Man" who turned out to be...

V-Dawg, I was thinking the same thing.  It's like home alone.  And Dios- how do we know the 9 year old boy isn't in on the scam?  

Tis the season to be covetous, greedy, wrathful...
5795  Media / The Soundroom / Song of the Moment on: November 29, 2006, 09:58:04 PM
"Spongebob Squarepants" theme song.  

Why?  Because I was asked today to be on the bill for a Rutgers Musicians' Guild show on Friday and that's my opening number.

I don't get to gig very often so I love it when I do.

Ozzy woke up from a nightmare shouting "SHARON!!! I just had a dream that the kids turned into the Osmonds, and and..."

"There there, dear," cooed Florence Henderson.  It'll be okay."

The TV then faded out and all that the story participants felt were loads of brief flashes as "The Man" was flipping the channels.  "The Man" eventually settled on Pokemon so now Dincrest and the happy RPGfanners were now trapped in an episode of Pokemon.  (OMG 4D plot twist!)

After the Pokemon theme song played...

...that and even an RPG with awesomely cool and dynamic gameplay can have its gameplay start to get a little stale by the 70th hour.  And then it feels like an obligation to finish.  It becomes work.  And a game should never feel like work or an obligation.

When keeping tabs on multiple RPGs, it helps to keep a notebook so that you can jot down where you left off  and where you need to go, when you stopped playing.  That way if you come back to it weeks later after the burnout's gone, you won't be totally lost.  That way you also don't have to tax your brain to remember stuff.  

Or invest in a cheat device like a Gameshark.  When things get too tedious, just punch in some cheat codes and breeze your way through to the end.  That way you can get the story without the chorelike gameplay.  

Makes the time commitment less tiresome too.  With a GameShark, FF7 can be beaten in 25-35 hours.  And I'll be honest, these days any RPG time commitment more than that becomes quite tiresome for me.
5799  The Rest / General Discussions / Thanksgiving on: November 27, 2006, 11:35:43 AM
Darkrider still hasn't told us how his turkey-cooking adventure went.  I'm really curious to know how it all turned out.  Or at least whether he used Dag's brown bag idea.

...only in the Neal household would the Thanksgiving bird be tandoori chicken.

...he was smited by Ultimecia still wearing a Spongebob costume.  Just then, a purple-ish object came twirling down from the sky.  It was a familiar Warwick Fortress MasterMan bass!  That could only mean one thing.  Dincrest had been brought back to life.  

Only Dincrest was a bit, ummm, different than usual.  Instead of his usual clothes, he was now wearing...

Spongebob Squarepants, who was really Ultimecia in disguise.  Ultimecia then noticed...

Heh, but what if it was a DragonForce RPG, hmm?  

But hmmm... who to play as.  I'll probably play as Marko Paasikoski, the bassist.  He too is a user and lover of Warwick.  The site says that all manner of weapons will be used... but I'd want to use their instruments.  I mean, Henrik with a keytar of doom.  Or Jani with his Ibanez "axe."

http://www.rpgfan.com/reviews/tracememory/index.html Here's my review of Trace Memory.  I'm pretty much the graphic adventure/digital novel/dating sim/love adventure guy on the staff.  I have a review of Touch Detective too.  It's nice to see that 3 of us (me, Clueless, Britton) actually liked Touch Detective, which I feel got unfairly slammed by the critics.  Methinks they don't play enough adventures.  http://www.rpgfan.com/reviews/touchdetective/index.html

I believe Cing, who developed Trace Memory, is also behind Hotel Dusk.  And given how much I loved Trace Memory (I consider it a DS "must have") I hope Cing doesn't let me down with Hotel Dusk.

Toilet, with Limp Bizkit swimming in it!!!

"I always knew Limp Bizkit was a crappy band, but this is ridiculous."  

Just then...

I find the prospect of Drakrider cooking a turkey very amusing.  

Go all American, dude!  Take a turducken (deboned chicken stuffed inside a deboned duck stuffed inside a deboned turkey), coat that thing in flour, spices & lard, and deep fry it in coconut oil.  Use a pressure cooker/fryer like Colonel Sanders did!  :P

(If the thought of that didn't give you people a heart attack, then I pity you.  But still, only in America would someone create a turducken... with sausage stuffing.)  

As for me, I love Thanksgiving.  Fun with family, getting happy off of tryptophan and beer, and sharing funny stories about how wacky we all are.  (I'm part of a very large and very dysfunctional Indian family, but we're generally a happy bunch, especially when we're soused on comfort food and alcohol.... and don't talk about sensitive topics.)  

I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving, because life has been go go go for me lately and the break will be nice.  Last Thanksgiving, our neighbors had the garage door open and the guys were putting a turkey in a huge deep fryer and acting all "manly" while the wives were all like "oh, my fucking god.  Will our husbands EVER grow up?"  My family lives in a very ethnically diverse neighborhood, so Thanksgivings are always amusing.  I'm still waiting for the day someone decides to emulate that Cosby Show episode when Cliff Huxtable decides to break out the grill and make BBQ ribs in the middle of November.  

Pizza on speed dial when the turkey doesn't work out.
