@Klyde - Which reminds me: You seen Battle of the Gods yet?

Anyways, been playing nothing but Match 3 puzzle games for the last 4 days. Mostly Pokemon Shuffle and Puzzle & Dragon, as well as some Battle Trozei.

And honestly? I don't even know why I'm playing the other two when I could be spending more time With Puzzle & Dragon. That game is the bomb, at least in comparison to those other two...seriously, Shuffle is a prime example of how to make your F2P game incredibly annoying to play. It's fun, but I can only play5 matches every 2 and half hours. Seriously, this game would be fun if I could actually fucking play it for more than 2 seconds. Trozei is bull, there's nothing to it. I played it for over an hour and every level was basically me repeating the same patterns over and over again. Game Boy Tetris had more depth than this...

Now Puzzle & Dragon...

It's F2P model is pretty much perfect. You're still limited by energy, but it refills every time you level up. This does slow down after Rank 9, but you also gain more energy capacity as you go. Most everything can be easily accessible by just playing the game, which consist of multi-battle "dungeons" instead of single fights, and each dungeon has its own energy capacity. So far it's usually been 3 per dungeon, but every once in a while I'll get one that costs less. Also, you're guaranteed to get something so long as you clear the stage. There's daily bonuses, login bonuses, special dungeons, a lottery where you're guaranteed a rare monster, and an Endless Dungeon that doesn't seem to cost energy, but doesn't seem to have any obvious rewards, either - it's just there for bragging rights (though it might also be good for practice). The only limits are money and monsters - you can only carry 20 monsters [EDIT: I just found out you can increase the capacity with magic stones), and up to 5 of them can be used in a party (and unlike the Mega Evolutions, most useable monsters have skills), and once you hit the max you either have to come out empty-handed, sell off a monster, or fuse monsters to make them stronger. Obviously the last option is the best, but it costs in-game currency. I seem to get 100-400 gold per dungeon so far, but the cost scales with every level - if you want to get a most up to max so you can upgrade him, you'll have to be strategic, or risk spending too much gold. I actually ran out of gold by the time I was done playing earlier, though I didn't notice at first. Next time I play I may have to sell something. There's also friend-related activities and other social features that are meant to make it more likely for you to get experience and gold.

I'm honestly very interested to see how they tried to convince people to pay over 4000 yen for P&DZ, when they're already giving away so much...

Also, I've been using ellipses a lot. I just noticed that...weird...

And a big YES in general to animated music videos.

On this topic (again): This video (NSFW) sent me on a night long trip down memory lane that lasted through the morning. Seriously, I forgot how much I used to listen to Punk Rock growing up. Pretty sure Reel Big Fish played somewhere...oh yes, they did the English version of Rave Master theme song! (AKA the only noteable thing about that show...): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnJa2kZx5GY

...of course, they kinda butchered the song in the 45 second TV edit. :( Hurray for Youtube...

Oh yeah, I should probably mention that Spazkidz is...weird...not even in an acid trip way, either. More in a...he clearly wants to do porn (and often does), yet he insists on doing very Awesome-series style animations with lots of spontaneous tit-shots that have to be censored in the Youtube version. I'm not even sure how I found his Newgrounds channel, now that I think about it.

That said, that video was much better than his usual stuff. It was focused (thanks to the song), and silly without going over-the-top all the time, again, thanks largely to having to stick to the song. And it only has two tit shots this time, and both go by really fast and are keenly censored in that video. Too bad he didn't do more stuff like this, but it sounds like it was just something he did while he was bored one afternoon...

I've had international packages take over a month to reach my mailbox from England...so I wouldn't worry too much until about a week or two from now, unless you ordered it longer ago than those two weeks you mentioned...

Also found out I was using Armips incorrectly and now I feel like a total asshat :(

You're making me think weird things on purpose now, aren't you?

Dude, you said:

Go buy some patience and chill out.

Maybe not an attack, but it sure as hell was rude, especially since he was clearly at least half-joking...

PSsst, you forgot Type-0 HD...

I do see a noticeable difference, alright. Still not sure if I want to play FFX again, though...

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


Dragon Ball Z: Battle of the Gods is best movie.

EDIT Again: Okay, more thoughts:

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of the Gods - Took a couple sittings, but it was worth it. Easily the best Dragon Ball Z-related animated work I've ever seen. It was a fun watch, through and through, filled to the brim with the charm and wit I always felt DBZ lacked 90% of the time, and just about every scene left me with a smile. The overall messege was good, too, at least in part because it felt like an analogy to the most recent parts of Toriyama's career. I can hardly wait for the next film, even though it's obviously gonna be more serious.

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...

>Mick Threw Money at Dragon Warriors
>Lost $60.00

That's what I get from bringing a Jester along...

@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.
