Been playing a lot of stuff so I'll just do this quick, no frills:

Fallout: New Vegas - Just cleared out Primm of Bandits yet apparently they won't be satisfied until they get a sheriff, and the only guy who'll do it is a criminal who wants a pardon. Great...

Baldur's Gate - Finally made it out of the castle at least...on a file I made for messing around.

realMyst - Just beat the ship section. Now I'm gonna head to the stone age. Had enough of water for one day...

Final Fantasy XII - Finally got out of prison, now I gotta go to some mine to save Penelo. After I beat up a cactus...which I did once, but then I decided to fight a dinosaur on the way back. It looked like a good idea at the time...

Xenoblade Chronicles - Just did some quests so I'll be ready when I want to move on with the story. I like when I do a quest where I have everything already, especially if its a 5-part scavenger hunt. =P

King of Fighters XI- This game is hard, but I forgot how fun it could be. Nothing like pulling off some big combos.

Rocket Knight Adventures - Just messed around with the first few levels. Man, this looks like butt on an HD TV. -_-;

Astral - I wish I wasn't playing the Japanese version, I have no idea what's going on! Fun game, though. But how do I hurt the first boss?

F-Zero GX - Beat the first Grand Prix on Novice. Very exilerating, this game is.

Super Mario Shunshine - Beat the Manta Ray shadow thing (was easy once I found out you could stay in the water by the shore and just blast everything), the Yoshi-Go-Round's Secret (a no water pack level. Nearly got a heart attack, these levels are so stressful), and then I got the Turbo nozzle.

All in all, a good week.

Anyway, random Xillia 2 thoughts:
1. Not many dogs around. 

Random thought but...I remember in Tales of Graces f there were a few random animals you could talk to. Why could I only talk to some of them? Why could I talk to any of them??? After that I had to talk to every animal I saw...and most of them wouldn't say a word...=(

And I just say enough with all the awfulness

So here's a bunch of commenters passionately defending Hello Kitty's identity as a cat.

Kinda reminds me of how I view cartoon animals in general - they're people with animal traits, not animals with people traits.

Of course, I know that's a bit of an odd way to look at things, since anthropomorphy means "non-human given human-like traits", but still...

Unless she's saying she's really a girl wearing a costume this whole time. Then...

Bah, I just remembered that I can easily transfer a PS3 Diablo 3 account to the PS4 version, so I'm going to get the PS3 version now, and then buy the PS4 version years from now and transfer stuff.

I have never heard a single song from her apparently, not even on the radio or whatnot. Looked up a bunch of songs, none of them rang a bell. Kinda glad, though, her stuff doesn't seem to be my style - not bad perse, but her songs aren't that interesting.

HOWEVER!!! Whoever was hired to do her music videos deserves a raise. A lot were so interesting I forgot it was a music video. "Trouble's Lament" (from her latest album, apparently) in particular was so good, I honestly thought I was watching a complex spy movie for a while. Hell, I wish Jame's Bond' (or equivelants') stunts were half as engrossing. Maybe it's because there weren't any relevant words to go off of, so it was like watching the old Pink Panther shorts where you have to pay close attention to figure out what they're trying to do. (Those were awesome, btw) I might check some more songs out for the videos. Thanks for bringing her up, at least.

Also, people were absolutely tired of the PS3 and wanted something new and Shiny, so Sony put out a shiny box and promised lots of shiny new games. So people bought it droves, despite most of the shiny new games Sony promised turning out to be older games with the dust blown off.

Recently slogged through almost 100 hours of FFXII.  That game somehow managed to be a fat giant turd and impossibly addictive at the same time.  Then I went on a Ys spending spree.  Just finished I and II and have just started Oath of Felghana. 

Does anyone here also keep a journal of the games they've completed?  I like to use "Howlongtobeat.com because it works a lot like GoodReads in that respect.  My backlog is RIDICULOUS though.

I obviously use the backloggery. It's easy to use, but only if you keep up with it since you have to add stuff one game at a time. Obviously I'm not very good with that...
1074  Media / General Games / Re: Panzer Dragoon Orta on: August 23, 2014, 10:29:08 PM
is a better/more entertaining game than PD Saga. Yup, deal with it.

I haven't played Panzer Dragoon Saga, and probably never will, legally at least, but I'm pretty sure it's not a rail shooter. That's like saying Paper Mario is a more fun and engaging game than Mario Kart - One's a rose garden, the other is shit in a basket, obviously those can't be compared. Also, genre biases.

Dude, I've seen Grandmothers play Multiplayer with eachother on their 3DSes in Barnes & Noble. I don't think you're too old to be playing handhelds out in public. :P

I will agree that the PS4 looks pretty barren right now, but it'll improve. It has to. 10 million people bought that freakin' thing in less than 6 months. Publishers aren't exactly gonna just look the other way, ya dig?

They'll carry over if you had a save from the original, but they won't be present for everyone else to get, apparently: http://diablo.somepage.com/blue/13181878163-d3-uee-information-station-read-me
1077  Media / The Soundroom / Re: Songs that sound weirdly like other songs on: August 20, 2014, 08:52:44 PM
Reminds me of that controversy 5 years ago with Joe Satriani and Coldplay.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eb49QuPLuHg

I demand a copy of those two songs mixed together. Seriously, they actually mix fantastically. It's like each song is only using half the instruments.

I actually got rediculously close to completing Minish Cap 100%. Like, One Heartpiece away, I think, plus the Final boss (which I could never beat. That final form really is a pain in the butt. In fact, what Zeldas besides the Oracle games had a good final boss? Wind Waker?). Not even sure how I got that far...
1079  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Diablo 3? on: August 20, 2014, 12:59:04 PM
So, Reaper of Souls is out now. Anyone know if its easy enough to turn off/ignore the extra social features the PS4 version comes with? Because I really don't like the sound of those. To the point where I might just go with the PS3 version just so I can avoid them entirely, no patch support be damned.

Also, does having more enemies on-screen make it harder? I don't remember anyone complaining about the amount of enemies in the PS3 vanilla version...

So I was trying to list things in my head of the next few things I gotta do, but when I tried to talk them out, this was what came out:

"Okay, so now I gotta take off my pants...."

I believe I was trying to say "I gotta put the dog away". I don't think those who things are related. In fact, I don't think it was even on the list of things to do at all.

This is why I don't talk to people. My mouth has a mind of its own.
