Been playing Soul Blazer because all the cool kids are talking about it. I powered through the first 3 areas now. I guess I'm almost halfway through now? Anyways, hoping I'll get thist done before wednesday.

I'm still chomping at the bit for Terranigma, Soul Blazers, and Illusion of Gaia to come to VC. I played a couple hours of each on emulators, and they were fantastic. If they don't come eventually, I may have to give in a buy an SNES...or beat them on emu...either one would be a huge accomplishment for me...

SMT - After getting some really good equipment, demons, and experience, getting through the Police Station was a walk in the park. And now I can get a few more demons, so yay more fusing! Oh yeah, and I should probably finish exploring Ginza and figure out where to go next, too.

Some news for any mechheads here: A new J9 series is in the works. Not much info right now though, but I'll give it a chance when it comes along.

Just thought I'd point this little quote out:

Quote
Yamamoto also stated that one of the goals of the project is to revive the "original anime" in an age where it's more common to base anime off of manga, which is bad for anime scriptwriters. For this reason, he has started a "Practice Anime School" to train several new talents for the next generation of anime scriptwriters, using Ginga Jinpū Jinraiger as the teaching material.

Now that is ambitious. Or stupidly pretentious...I'm not sure which. It's a good goal nonetheless so either way, I'm hoping for the best.

I really have developed some kind of gaming ADD. Last night I started Rogue Galaxy over for the fourth time. For some reason I always get to the part where you return to Rosa right after the mines and then just never go back to it.

At least you get past that Mines part...I like that game, but it really drags by the time you get to the mines...

^Do you have Banjo-Kazooie/Tooie on any other platform? Because if not I'd highly recommend those. Shadow Complex also comes highly recommended.

Anyways, finally found Shibuya. Delved into the Messiah girl's mind and now she's traveling with me. Now I'm exploring Roppongi.

Have both Banjo games on my N64, which I actually still have hooked up. Haven't considered Shadow Complex in a while, certainly an option, though I've heard it's pretty short and not very challenging.

It's challenging on hard mode, at least. I dunno, I never played it on Normal.

EDIT: Made it through Roppongi in SMT. That was kinda boring since there were hardly any demons. Though I did find one guy who leveled me up 10 times. I think it was a bonus boss. Either way, it was really helpful. Now I'm off to the Police station, according to my disembodied friend.

I'm now 17 hours into Shin Megami Tensei on iPad. At least 3 of those hours have been spent wandering the wastelands trying to find Shinbuya...I'm through with Shinjuku, and someone said it was northwest, but there's nothing there...or northeast, or southeast, and the demons are way stronger in the southwest. Like, I leveled up 3 levels when I beat two of them. At the very least I'm level 33 now, and I got some good demons, but it's getting really annoying not knowing where to go...

Personally, I'm more in it for the silliness. The reviewers problem centered around the sexual humor and that he thought the gameplay wasn't that interesting, not so much that it was bad, annoying, agrivating, etc. To me, this sounds more like what I wished Neptunia was - a funny game with combat that doesn't suck donkey balls. Seriously, as long as the gameplay is inoffensive, I'm down with it. I'll try the demo at some point and see what I think.

Let me point you to this: http://lparchive.org/Chrono-Cross/Update%2090/

And so we gain our first member of Team Rejected Characters, and one of the very most useless characters in the entire game: Pierre.

But...but...he said he was a hero. ;_;

Also, I should probably mention I've never played Chrono Cross before and have not been reading any guides or anything, so I have some info there that I just guesstimated. Like, I thought Guile was a thief, but I see he's a mage. Still missed out on him, though. Then there's the whole manor thing, which I assumed was a one time deal, but I guess you can go back there later after the Dragoons leave? And yes, I didn't know Pierre sucked, I didn't get any indication whatsoever that he wasn't a useful character until after I got him already...and saved over my file. =(

But whatever, I'll just continue. Thanks for the warning that I can't get Glenn without being a big jerk. I won't fret over that, then. I like Kid.

Chrono Cross - Got stupid Pierre, which locked me out of Shadow Forest, preventing me from recruiting the thief guy and probably others...and he sucks so bad.

But instead of resetting, I decided to press on to Viper Manor, where I had to fight a really hard boss at the gate despite Pierre saying he'd get me in no problem. -_- Then I snuck my way through the manor grounds...by which I mean I got chased by every manor guard, and fought my way to the barn, where I did a stupid minigame for a way longer than I should've and gained nothing of value from it aside from a key.

Then inside the manor I fell the most obvious trap there is, beat up some guards, stripped them naked and stole their identities.

And I put on desguises, too.

So I was sneaking around in the manor, getting treasure and falling for every trap they had, sorely wishing I had the thief guy so I could go through the locked doors and underground passages, until I got caught by a Doctor...who I might be able to recruit later? I'm not sure. At the very least I unlocked her pet's cage.

I then went to the library, learned the secrets of the Universe from Captain Exposition, and later fought some Lynx Guy...'s shadow. Who nearly kicked my butt.

I really want to restart this game just to do the whole manor section all over again, and NOT recruit Pierre, but I'll save that for another time.

Anyways, a bunch of stuff happened that didn't make sense, Kid got sick, and I spent and hour wandering around accomplishing nothing until I finally figured out how to make that stupid wormhole work. So now I'm back in the home world, headed for the Hydra....Marsh...crap...

SMG IV

Super Mario Galaxy Episode IV: Nintendo's Last Hope

Boy, Nintendo's really pumping them out, I don't even remember when Super Mario Galaxy Part 3: Rise of the Koopas came out
15  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: 2014 Kickstarter, Steam Greenlight, etc. thread. What's piqued your interest? on: April 09, 2014, 09:26:32 PM

Those are ponies, not bronies. I declare false advertisement! I demand a game where I can date pony-obsessed men!

...anyways, Earthlock needs less than $500 to get funded but has less than 2 days left to go: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/171497873/earthlock-festival-of-magic

EDIT: Huh, and it was just funded. Neat.
