At least the iOS interface of SMT1 has mock buttons.  If the iOS port of ToP had those mock buttons, it could have been semi-playable.  

EDIT/ASIDE (re: Atlus but not SMT): And, not gonna lie, I still want to see Thousand Arms on the PSN shop.

GameCube also had Skies of Arcadia Legends and Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door along with the two Baten Kaitos games.

In old-school Dincrest fashion, I shall attempt to salvage this.  Last year I had a block of tofu and didn't know what to do with it, so something in my brain said "tofu dessert" so I looked that up and modified a recipe to make my own tofu dessert mousse.  

I whipped silken tofu in a food processor with Ovaltine (though you can use good quality cocoa to make this vegan), some coffee grounds (to add pop to the chocolate flavor), and some honey (again, vegan sub would be agave nectar).  And it turned out pretty good.  

This past Xmas, I tried this this recipe for "veg-nog" to positive effect.  Okay, so my batch was too thick, but it was delicious.  Recipe courtesy of: http://www.thisrawsomeveganlife.com/2013/12/you-gotta-love-raw-vegan-egg-nog.html

RAW VEGAN EGG NOG

1 cup pecans
4-5 cups water
1 cup dates
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Blend it all up. Use hot water if you want a warm drink. It should have the consistency of egg nog but if it's too thin, add more dates or pecans. If it's too thick, add more water. Change the spice amounts as you like.

EDIT: Although I'm an omnivore, I fail miserably at cooking meat.  However, I cook vegetarian food really well.  One time during a Food Not Bombs meeting, I somehow turned recovered cauliflower and potatoes into aloo gobi.  I'd never made it before and my buddy's house didn't really have any Indian spices, but somehow I made the kitchen and house smell like an Indian restaurant and the crew had to stop themselves from eating my aloo gobi so we could feed others with it. 

And just yesterday, I cooked chick peas in tomato sauce with spinach and it's delicious.  I don't like to use a lot of salt in my cooking (I'll use none if I can), but I do like to season my food with all kinds of herbs and spices.  Garam masala is a must in my kitchen. 
64  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Inazuma Eleven on: February 23, 2014, 02:29:12 PM
You know, "the soccer RPG" by Level-5 that came out in 2008 and, over the years, spawned a manga and anime series.  

It came out on the 3DS eShop about 10 days ago and was a complete surprise to me and pretty much everyone.  Is anyone else out there playing this?  I'm only dabbling with it a little bit since I'm pretty busy with life, but so far I'm enjoying it.  I never expected to see this baby actually drop in North America and am even more surprised that it just appeared with no fanfare.  Kind of a "surprise launch."  EDIT:  In a sea of "me too" JRPGs, this one does offer a unique flavor and I hope/wish more people knew about it. 

I know that the flavor of the month is Bravely Default, but surely someone else out there noticed Inazuma Eleven as well.

Basically it's like everyone is Kimahri and Kimahri is still pointless. (Hehe, not really but I couldn't resist that joke)

The battle where it's him alone was the worst for me.


And the kicker is that a Gameshark actually makes that battle a million times longer, more tedious, and potentially more difficult.

I enjoyed Pacific Rim myself.  I especially liked the music.

I love the cameo costumes (except Raines).  Mostly I'm just happy to get them out of the pretty constricting outfits they usually do wear.  ...Actually, thinking about it, as far as JRPGs go a lot of the characters are really well covered-up --- even their sex-pot character Sheena who's really only got the top half of her melons exposed.

The unicorn scene with Sheena is one of my favorites in the game.  Thing with Sheena is that
Code:
even though she looks sexy, she's actually the demure one.  She's obviously still a virgin since she can hang with the unicorn and gets ruffled that people think she's slutty because she's stacked.  And in Mizuho, their attitudes about relationships and all is REALLY strict and Sheena respected it.  On the other hand, seemingly demure Raine said she couldn't hang with the unicorn because "she's an adult."  That's such a sanitized way of saying she's not a virgin.  So who the hell has that half-elven tramp been banging?    

In other words, Symphonia flipped the script there and did another subtle take on the theme of not judging based on appearances.

And what's interesting is how a lot of people read reviews of something they have ex-post-facto, be it a game, a car or whatever.  After someone buys something, they'll then read all the reviews and if they're good, they'll feel justified in their purchase.  If they're bad, they'll second-guess themselves, even if they may be happy.  

That's one reason why I don't look at other reviews when I'm evaluating a game for the site.  A big case in point is Wild Arms XF.  I thoroughly enjoyed the game and said so in my review.  Then I looked at aggregate scores and saw that mine was the only positive review of it.  All the other reviews slammed the game.  And after I read all the negative reviews, where the common complaint was "it's not like FFT," I thought "that's exactly the reason why I liked the original Wild Arms in the first place.  It WASN'T FF.  It was its own cool thing."

Surprise, Inazuma Eleven dropped this past weekend for 3DS so I decided to blow some funds in my Nintendo eShop account on it.  I've dabbled a little bit, but so far the game's pretty fun.  

Anyone else playing Inazuma Eleven?

Finished Battle Angel Alita: Last Order Omnibus 3.  A lot of this was about the past and the involved backstory of one side character could easily be extracted and be sold as a manga series of its own.  So good.  And, like I said, the non-Battle Angel Kishiro manga included in these collections are a hoot to read. 

I can't wait till Omnibus 4 comes out.

Hopefully Bandai-Namco learns from the debacle that is Tales of Phantasia iOS and actually makes Asteria oh, I dunno, playable?  Because ToP proved to me that Tales and tablets do NOT mix.
72  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: February 15, 2014, 10:49:46 PM
I just got Battle Angel Alita: Last Order Omnibus 3 in the mail today and am reading it.  The Battle Angel Alita stuff is great (it is my favorite manga series after all) but what I really love in these omnibuses are the non-Battle Angel manga Kishiro has done.  It's cool to see how his art style evolved.  He's undoubtedly my favorite mangaka. 

I haven't really been watching anime lately.  Even when I do want to watch it, I want to watch older series I may have missed like Blue Seed, Golden Boy, or something.  Particularly 1990s stuff since that's my taste.  I haven't watched anything newer than Lucky Star, some of Detroit Metal City, and K-On! season 1.  I have no desire to watch K-On!! season 2, because I felt that season 1 capped off nicely and I hear season 2 kinda sucks. 

I must be getting old, since I'm starting to get a little jaded that the new stuff just ain't as good as "back in the day" stuff.  (aside: even in conventional cinema, 99% of movies were better back in the day, though the superhero genre is a million times better now than it was back in the day.)

Thanks for sharing this.  I partook.  "A Roller Skating Jam Named Saturdays" will always be one of my fave hip-hop songs.

And along with all of that is Witch and the Hundred Knight slated for release in March.

And as for the helmets, Sarah Reid of Canada's is my favorite.
