Once you get to Alabasta, it'll be easier to take it in chunks, just an arc or 3 at a time. That's what I did at least.

Was it right after waking up? Could be low blood pressure.

I guess. Other than my right hand always being cold, I've always been told by my doctors that my blood pressure was pretty swell...maybe it was just that morning my blood pressure was really low for some reason? I dunno...

On a completely unrelated note, I remember once I peed for a long time, and then I went blind for a few minutes immediately afterwords. I finally decided to look into whether or not that ever happened to anybody else.

Apparently not. What the hell, man???

Um...don't you usually heat up coffee, then wait for it to cool? Because then they might have been, you know, not ready to drink it yet when they spilled it?

*Sigh* So Nintendo Life has been going to pot, VC-Forums went kaput, and now it looks like AnimeNation Forums is in danger since it was part of an online store that finally closed its doors and now there's no one to pay for the servers. I mean, it seems the community there is trying to figure out what to do, but there's a chance this could be my last safe haven on the internet. Not that there's anything wrong with this place, but I was used to browsing several different forums...and I hate looking for new forums. It's so hard to find decent communities. I've tried so many different places over the years, but only 4 sites ever worked out, this one included...I'm not looking for another anime forum, either. I tried at least 10 of them, almost all of them were terrible, except for AN...I do need a more general video game forum to suppliment this place, though. I've checked all the main sites I know of and a lot of them had terribly designed forums...if they even had one at all. Guess I'll have to look for dedicated forum, but that'll be much harder to sort through...

Not sure if it's worth looking for a retro forum, though. Retro gamers tend to be either jaded, elitist, or both. VC-Forums was more for people looking to rediscover old classics rather than your usual retro collector crowd. Not sure if I want to hang out with pirates, either...

Der Jermanismus,

Any idea if patched VC3 is playable on a VitaTV?

Fairly certain it's not since Sony's been putting some serious effort into making sure the Vita doesn't get hacked and pirating software isn't a thing.. Heck, I think the 3DS has been hacked more than the Vita by now...

Anyways, only got a chance to play the Smash demo and Destiny today. Both are way more fun than I ever expected, though. Smash especially seems deserving of the hype.

Okay, I rented the PS3 version from a Redbox and played the Tutorial mission and the first actual mission. I'm enjoying it. Not blown away, but it makes a good first impression. And I don't completely suck at it! That's a plus. I mean I died a lot on the Boss, but that's because I kept running out of ammo. I chose the pulse rifle because I suck at aming, but I guess it's pretty weak because It basically took all my ammo to take down the boss...also, I didn't get to punch him in the face. That was pretty disappointing.

I'll probably play some more in the morning before I return it, but I'm definitely looking forward to playing it in a month or two when I can hopefully buy it (preferably at a lower price point).

I did that last time I played, Mesh, which is partly why I'm starting over. =P This time I'm putting emphasis on the mages. Tao is actually my highest-leveled character right now. Even her staff does major damage against weaker monster now, like the bats or archers.

I'll be playing more Shining Force soon, but I decided to try my hand at Ys IV: Dawn of Ys and Dragon Quest VIII, both of which I've been putting off for way too long, and both of them really impressed me. I find it hard to believe Dawn of Ys wasn't made by Falcom. It definitely has the feel of an Ys game to me thus far. Heck, the beginning of Mask of the Sun seemed far more phoned in, yet that was considered canon for a while...

Also, the music's great. I wish I understood the dialogue, though. Guess I'll have to follow a translation on my iPad next time I play.

Not as much to say about DQ8 other than it also feels just as great as the other DQ games despite being made mostly by Level 5. Only got through the first dungeon, but I think I'll stick around for a while longer.

BTW, I love how you can get the boomerang early on! Makes those early battles a breeze.

Shining Force is longer than I remember it being, but I still like it. I'm halfway through Chapter 2 now. I don't remember half these fights. I do remember everything being harder than this, but then again, I played it back when concepts of "equipment" and "levels" were foreign to me. Also, enemies are smarter than I forst thought. They don't just rush you, they try to trap you and get you in a position where they can hurt you and then their buddies can come in for the kill. Definitely more intelligent than I thought they were doing at first.

Thankfully the Director's cut is a free update. I paid full price for this game too many times already only to wait for them to fix it...

I was up until 1:30 in the morning last night trying to find a decent PC-Engine emulator (just to have, don't really have anything in particular I want to play right now). The best one I could find doesn't even have a freakin' full screen mode...

Then I spent 3 hours this morning trying to get games to work. Turns out they were in the wrong format, so I signed up to some french website to get them in the right format because like hell am I fiddling with converters again.

So with that said...Ginga Fukei Densetsu Sapphire is haaaard. It's almost like a bullet hell even in the first level. Spriggan was much cooler (and more manageable), though. Ys IV seems pretty neat, too.

I played a bit of Gun-Nac on an emulator to test out my Saturn USB controller I got a few weeks ago (it worked great). I like how I accumulated 7 lives in the first level, didn't die once and barely got hit on the boss...and then I gameover a third of the way into the second level. God I'm out of practice with shooters. Was fun, though. If I ever feel up to the challenge, I'll definitely have to play it again. I wish it would come to VC, though. :/

Also, I decided to restart Shining Force from the beginning, and I just cleared the fourth level. I forget how intensely charming this game is. Like, I don't think I've ever played another SRPG that's filled with so many little jokes and random things. Not even Disgaea. The combat is basic, but it makes it easy to get into, especially when you haven't been playing any sort of strategy game for over a year. Definitely glad I went back to this.

They redid the translation? Maybe it'll be worth playing Waru of ze Rions after all. I found the translation in the original so bad that I could barely follow what was going on at times.

I can't play Shining Force because of Shining Force 2.
It's just better in every way.

I never played the second game because I always wanted to finish the first...which I never did. I think I'm motivated to do that now. Thanks!

Yeah, Sword Craft story's my go-to game when I want some lighthearted story with some decent combat and crafting.

I was gonna list some games that I recall not liking before, but want to give a second chance to. However, I think I'll just buckle down and give FFT Scuffle of the kittens a second chance. I mean, I like the Advance games now, so why not?

Edit: or...maybe I should play Shining Force instead...now I'm confused! @_@

I know someone who has been following Kenichi nonstop (got caught up in under a year). I guess I'll be hearing about how that one ends.
