Rage of Bahamut: Genesis is good stuff so far. I can't believe I forgot to go back to it for so long...

I watched Aldnoah.Zero through episode 12, and the events of that last episode were so shocking that I decided to a take a quick break for it all to sink in.

Then I decided to check out some anime on Netflix, and that search turned up very disappointing. There's nothing on there I can't watch anywhere else besides Knights of Sidonia, and I already watched that show...but it was so good, I decided to watch it again, this time dubbed, or at least skim it to refresh my memory. On episode 3 now, and the dub is decent, and the story really is refreshing. Between Aldnoah.Zero, Broken Blade, Gundam Regonguista in G, and this, I think I'm really having a good time with mecha series these days.

I also marathoned The Devil is a Part-Timer on Netflix, this time Dubbed, just because I could. I watched it before and enjoyed it then, but I didn't find it funny. This time, it's hilarious, at least by episode 3. The little changes to the script really made a difference, and the casting and acting was great. And this show really has a good story to it, with some good action scenes in episode 5 to boot. I had to stop part way through episode 6 just because I noticed the time (I honestly marathoned all those episodes post dinner without a break...). Can't wait to watch more tomorrow.

At least the DLC is free. BTW, I really need to get Hyrule Warriors. Jimmy and Dice really had me sold on that...why your games never go down in price, Nintendo?! I can't be spending $60 on every game you put out that doesn't star Toad...

@Dice - true, We'll see how things go. I'm love or hate on Zelda games already, but since this is the only Zelda game I never got far in before, I'm really curious to see what side this lands on.

I decided to put down Persona after finding Kidori again. Now I'm playing Skyward Sword.

I beat the first dungeon, and I still can't figure out what I didn't like about it before. I mean, I always figured most of the problems were small, but I...didn't have much of a problem with anything this time around. Only minor quible was the eye things, where Fi, who will constantly bug you about every other little obvious thing, never gives any hint as to actually solve that part. But I remembered it, so it wasn't a problem this time. Navigating wasn't a problem this time. Controls weren't a problem this time. Puzzles were challenging, but never daunting. I always figured them out without even having to resort to Fi. I'm honestly having a good time, and I think I'll continue with this for a while.

I'm actually 2/3rds of the way through Persona, according to a guide I peaked at, but the bland dungeons had me yearning for some Zelda. Since I kinda used up almost every Zelda game I had, I decided to restart Skyward Sword and see if I could give it a fair shake. I only got to the part where you get the Goddess Sword today, but honestly, I'm glad I restarted. It reminded me how much I loved how the 3D Zeldas start out, even Majora's Mask (tbh I never even left Clock Town all those time I rented that game as a kid. It wasn't until I was 15 that I even knew I could...). I even enjoyed this part last time, but I felt it got worse from there. We'll see if I still feel the same. Again, now that I have a better controller, the controls actually work fine now. I didn't even have to recalibrate once. Flying's still a little tricky, though.

Erm... GTFO of there?
Eventually, the mold is going to kill you all.

It took me 3 years to get a job, I'm not leaving until I at least get get cashier experience...which I was supposed to get 6 months ago, I'm really gonna have to get on their ass about that.

Don't mean to pry, but why did it take you 3 years to get a job?  Is it because of something obvious and unfortunate (and American) like you're a minority/physically handicapped?  Are you a felon? Long term illness?

Because I live in an area where everyone was looking for jobs at once and there are very few jobs here that don't involve working for the state in some capacity, unless you know someone, and all my friends left this area because they knew how terrible this place is...it doesn't even have a decent bus route anymore, so I need a ride a lot of the time.

I mean I even had a job councelour, yet I was lucky if I got an interview more than once a season. It got to the point where I was this close to quitting the search before...I guess other people gave up and there were actually some jobs I could apply for. At least I've been competant at this so hopefully if I do need to look somewhere else, it won't be as hard.

Star Ocean: The Last Hope was the only Star Ocean I really liked. It did a lot of little things (as well as some big things) that went a long way in improving almost all the problems I had with the series, especially the pacing. That said, Valkyrie Profile 2 gets my vote for best Tri-Aces game, as well as the 3rd most improved sequel I've ever played in any series (horray for the covetted bronze medal =P). The story was structured better, the writing felt more polished and focused on an actually interesting protagonist I could connect with, and the gameplay was a complete 180 from the last game (which is good, because VP1's gameplay was everything I hated in a game). Even the platforming sequences were...barable. Platforming still does not belong in an RPG, though (unless it's just making a platformer with RPG elements, so the whole game is designed around the platforming elements, but then I'm just gonna call it a platformer and say fuck it to the RPG part).

I actually really didn't like Kingdom Hearts 3D (though I'll admit I quit early on, so take that for what you will), and in fact, I've always heard very split opinions on it. Some thought it was great. Some thought it was the worst KH since Chain of Memories (then again, I actually thought Chain of Memories was okay until I got the Axel[?] fight about halfway through...). I'm surprised I haven't noticed more of the latter on this site since I've been here.

I have a bad habit of forgetting extremely important words when I write stuff...

Anyways, yesterday was great outside...and I was inside most of the time at work. But I had to work outside all last week when it was snowy, windy, and below zero out there. I swear, stores are busier when the weather's terrible than when it's actually nice out...

Also, the grocery store I work at is in a brand new building (only two or three years old) and the roof in the entranceway leaks something fierce, yet you know what upper management's answer is? Buckets. Lots of buckets. We tell them it's leaking more, they give us more buckets. Yet we never have enough or the buckets overflow, because there's aleays water on the floor. We've been having this problem since October, so they can't even blame the weather. I mean, these are the same cheapskates who hired the sucky contractor that half-ass their work and lead to this mess, but still, it's getting to the point where customers are afraid they might slip or the ceiling might collapse on them. The answer? Squeegy - get a big-ass squeegy and make the cart guys periodically push the water back outside (thus wasting time that could be spent getting carts so people can actually shop, time that is very necessary since there's only 3 corrals in the whole big-ass parking lot very close together, corporate won't let us have more than a minimum amount of carts at the store, and half the carts are fucking useless and can't even be put with the other half because they're 10 years old. I swear, I work for fucking geniuses...). It's like we're trying to bail a sinking ship...

...I don't like complaining about work, but I had to get that off my chest because it really is annoying and potential dangerous...

I'm 6 episodes into Aldnoah.Zero. Very exciting stuff so far. I'll try to post more tomorrow. #placeholder

I should note I'm basically grinding for Persona skills, which takes an absurd amount of time. I'm more or less one-shotting everything when I have the right skills, but every time I get a new Persona, it's more or less useless until I rank it up...
15  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: February 22, 2015, 08:57:37 PM
Still mostly playing Persona. The clock says I played 172 hours, and while that's a glich, it certainly feels like it. I've been grinding a lot, and the dungeons are long and mostly uninteresting (like, they're just long, windy hallways with nothing in them...). That said, I've been enjoying it. I don't mind a game that makes me want to grind.
