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...

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

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.

I'm flying through Space Battleship Yamato 2199 (by my standards anyway. 3 episodes a night is a lot for me). It's such a fun show to watch. Between it and Bodacious Space Pirates, I'm not sure which I find more entertaining. Yamato is much much more serious and has a really cool setting (in terms of the universe) but Bodacious Space Pirates has Marika, so it's kind of a draw.

I'm actually only a couple episodes away from finishing Yamato 2199, I just keep forgetting to finish it off. It's a great show, though, I agree. I really love the universe (to the point where my only complaint is that the Gamilan aren't given as much of a focus as I would like). I also like the characters, who grew on me much more than I expected. The detailed and well-thought-out battle scenes were the stars in my eyes, though. They really impressed me. The story itself was a bit predictable, but I still think it was well excecuted and there were some surprising turns here and there, too.

I never could get myself to watch Bodacious Space Pirates. It seems too fluffy for a space adventure from what I can tell...

I liked FFX-2.

No, really! I love camp. It was so full of ham and cheese that it went way beyond being annoying and was just damn funny. Besides, I'm just easy to please with a job system and mission based structure.

I actually liked Final Fantasy X-2 more than FFX back when I first played it. Only thing I really remember disliking was that they replaced the awesome battle system from FFX with the ATB system from previous games. Nowadays I wouldn't like it as much, what with the mission-based system and, IIRC, the multitude of minigames (which I can't stand in RPGs). Though I'm not sure how necessary those minigames are. The game's also kind of a completionist's nightmare (though new game plus mitigates that somewhat), though I'm not much of a completionist, so I don't care.

I'd probably still enjoy it more than FFX, though...but that's not really saying much.

You can't pet him, but you can still post here?

Well, I had to use the other hand to chronicle my dog-sitting-on-hand adventures!

...that or I used present tense when I meant past tense. Or I was posting about the future. Either way, I'm bored.

My dog is sitting on my hand, and I can't be assed to move it.

Now he's whining for me to pet him, which I can't do because he's sitting on my hand.

Will keep that in mind, and honestly reason i just "discovered " it is I seldom , at least until lately , watch anything simulcast or new at all. I despise having to wait on episodes, I wanna watch it at my pace.

I prefer to watch at my own pace, too, but for the past few years I've been trying to keep up with shows every season...and failing miserably every time. This time I'm just going to stick to two or three shows and see if I can stick to them (Captain Earth, Broken Blade, and Knights of Sidonia if I can find it). I don't know why I even bother, though, since I'm more of a retro anime fan to begin with. I guess it's just because then there's more to talk about. I know most of the places I go to people will hardly ever talk about anime that's more than 5 years old...even Gurren Lagann is starting to fade from peoples' consciousness now that Kill La Kill exists...

...I do wish I could talk more about old anime, though. Heck, just yesterday I was tempted to start watching Full Metal Panic just because I haven't finished it yet and Aeolus was watching it, so I thought maybe we could start a conversation about it. Then I remembered that I don't even really care for it and I only ever watch it as a pallet clenser (I've made multiple attempts and never get very far before I move on to something else), which I don't need right now, so I crossed it off my list and decided it was finally time to watch Kill La Kill and Log Horizon...only to wind up continuing Legend of the Galactic Heroes since I discovered that I still had the tab open since December (...yeah...). Now I'm up to episode 13 in that. Episode 12 leads into another battle so that should be cool. Didn't seem like episode 11 accomplished much of anything, though.

I keep forgetting I like Rick and Morty. I need to watch more of it.

SaGa Frontier maybe? It's not a great game in anyways, but I find fun as hell for some reason...
1152  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently watched Episodes of TELEVISION BOX offerings! on: April 04, 2014, 01:29:56 PM
Huh, so I got bored and decided to give Bravest Warriors one more chance and now all of a sudden it decided to stop being so gross and actually have a story and I like it and shit. Wut?
1153  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently watched Episodes of TELEVISION BOX offerings! on: April 04, 2014, 10:40:25 AM
I really want to like Bravest Warriors, since it feels more thought out and interesting than Adventure time, but the gross-out gags are too gross for me, not to mention they're often too mature to be aimed at kids, yet too lowbrow to be enjoyed by adults. They're just stuck in a weird quaisi realm where the only one they're really supposed to amuse is the writer himself...

I mean for petesakes, they had an entire episode devoted to awkward butt jokes. Even as a kid I would've found that obnoxious.

And that butter lettuce joke in episode 3 may very well haunt me for my entire life. I think we should sue.

As for Adventure Time, I mostly agree that its setting is more weird for weirdness sake and that the show tends to flip flop between really good and really not-so-good, now that I've seen more. I'm still torn on it, too, but I find that better than just feeling like it's stupid.

The best suggestion for Satori Marsh is to run through to the end of the region and do the quests/fight the boss needed to move on to the next area, make your way to Makna Forest then turn around and deal with the lizards (by that time you should've accumulated enough Exp/Ap/Sp to be strong enough to fight the Terrible Thunder Lizards).

The secret entrance involves sticking to the edge of the plateau until you can find a trail wrapping around the outside of the fortress's walls.

Also don't forget that before you fight an enemy your Talent Arts slot can cycle to a purple option with an arcing arrow, which is the Throw Stone option. You can aggro some of the lesser lizards out of the main chamber using that and eliminate them before dealing with the boss.

Thanks, that really helped. I completed the quest, then took on the lizards a bit later. Managed to beat the minions one group at a time no problem, but the Godwin was too tough to take down.

Also started Chrono Cross. Liking it so far, but I only just got through the time portal thingie, so I'm not far in.
1155  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: April 03, 2014, 08:06:22 PM

There's a side entrance to the lizards.

I've been looking everywhere for it ever since I found the key. Not exactly sure where that entrance is, though...
