17. That's my final offer.

I heavily 'shopped an image for my avatar. Emerald sword is my favorite super cheesy power metal Rhapsody (of Fire) song.

For the king for the land for the mountains
for the green valleys where dragons fly
for the glory the power to win the black lord
I will search for the emerald sword

~Emerald Sword - Rhapsody


I was hoping you were referencing that song. I haven't listened to it in almost 2 months thanks to my iPod dying, but I used to listen to it a lot. Like, at least once a day. And it's been too long...

Wait, did he mean usernames? Oh. That's easy: I have no idea. I randomly came up with it one day. I had a lot of weird usernames between 2006-2011 due to such spontineity. I stuck with this one the most because it was the least embarassing.

I'm pretty sure the nearest Trader Joes isn't that close to me...

...oh wait, they're right by my bank. I've walked past it at least 6 times since I moved to Albany in May. And apparently figs will cure the boiling magma pit that is my bowels. Mesh, you're either an angel, or the best damn fig salesmen that never got paid.

I'm looking forward to it, certainly. I'm reserving September for Dragon Quest 7, though, but since FF15 got delayed to...a much better time slot, honestly, I might be able to squeeze it in...or maybe I'll get Gravity Rush Remastered and get myself ready for my most anticipated game of the year, seeing how far behind I am with this series...

Disappointing, sure, but hardly astonishing. I mean this is a game that managed to generate 3 years of hype with nary a detail about how the game actually played.

No, those details were readily available and doled out on a regular basis. It's just that the people getting hyped got worked up without ever reading any of those details. Everyone just assumed that a galactic-wide sandbox would have a ton of variety, and maybe more things will come down the line - Elite: Dangerous started out pretty sparse, but its been getting better as it goes. Anything could happen - But for now we got what was promised over two years ago.

Then again, some people are also disappointed even knowing what was in store, so it's not like ignorance is the only flaw...

@Dincrest - I considered it, but I wasn't sure whether or not it was a good idea to be that corny while posting on the can.

@Artimicia - Avatar? I got mine from a random Google search. I wanted a mecha wolf. And apparently at least one other person did, too, since he made a really cool picture of one and then posted it on an obscure roleplaying website. Which I never found again. It was fate I tell ya.

Yeah, I gave up on Baldur's Gate 1 and moved onto the sequel a while ago. It was a great decision, by my measure. I'm enjoying it a lot more.

I also got in the mood for some rogue-ish survival, and played some Don't Starve. Also: I notice the main character gains facial hair and eye bags after a while. does he ever sleep and/or shave? I mean, it took me forever to get a science machine this run, and when I got one, I built a lot more than I could carry (luckily one of them was a backpack). Not sure if I'm gonna get that far if a bed/cabin is required for sanity recovery/sleep...

EDIT:

Course, then the latest review reminded me about Shiren the Wanderer...might put this on hold for something less stressful (yes, I consider Mystery Dungeon less stressful. At least it's turn-based).

The haps is I couldn't help but noticing reading about Greek history Aeolus and Aeolic dialect and Aeolus in general.... could of sworn I've seen that name somewhere....

Ugh, just ask him out already! Stop being so coy...

Yeah, I don't see this staying up too long. Plus that plot description sounds kind of asinine, even by Pokemon fan-game standards. Props for effort?

The whole game's just a pale immitation from diehard fans who apparently could only express their love for the series by proving just how far below the bar the series could have gone. I don't even mean that as an insult...well, okay, I do mean it as an insult. But I still appreciate its existance if only because it helps to show all the little details that some of the fans may have taken for granted that really brought the experience together, by showing what it's really like when those details are missing or botched. At the very least, after studying the pokedex, move lists, and game maps, and spendng at least 30 minutes experiencing the story/NPC dialogue and exploring the gameworld, I already want to go back to Pokemon Black 2 and apologize for every mean thing I said about it.

I have trouble thinking of my top 5 favorite movies, let alone 7. Not because I haven't seen a lot of good movies, but because I never really retain them. ~1.5-4 hours is rarely enough time to leave an impression on me. But I'll try:

Summer Wars - I really liked the family aspect here, and I felt like the whole virus part of the story acted as a visual representation of the problems they were going through, which was sealed it for me. Plus it, was really pretty.

.................................screw it, the rest are all kid's moves that I haven't seen in years. Except maybe Rush Hour 2 and The Men in Black. Though I'm now I'm wondering if I actually liked Rush Hour 3 and The Men in Black 3 more, but I don't really remember much of either of them right now, so...

Oh wait, I watched the animated Transformers: The Movie when I was 16. I loved it, and the Optimus "death" scene really did have balling, even I though never saw more than 3 episodes of the original series as a kid.

^Yeah, I was gonna ask where you guys were going that you could spend less that $2 on an arcade machine. Time Crisis 4 also cost me $4 worth of credits at a Dave & Busters last time I went (which was also the only time I went there!)

In the anime, she uses this power to allow Sailors Uranus and Neptune to escape from a helicopter explosion. In each case, she sacrifices herself to unnamed punishments as the keeper of time, but is reinstated later in the series.

This was what I was talking about, apparently. I remember her "sacrifice", but apparently she did come back at some point. Then again, all of us seem to be confused...just out of curiousity, when was the last time anyone watched more than a couple episodes of Sailor Moon? I mainly watched it on Toonami when I was 6 & 7, before DBZ came on...

Finally got off my butt and completed the True Pascifist ending in Undertale. It was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.

So good.  So damn good.

Easily one of my favorite gaming experiences in recent years even with the hype under it, it still caught me by surprise. :)

Yeah, it's become a very special game for me, especially considering when I played it - I bought it on impulse a week after it came out, with zero knowledge of what I was in store for. I still procrastinated on it, though, and didn't start until this March, when I started getting extremely depressed due to work and my mounting health problems. Needless to say, I got all the way to the Final Boss in one go, mostly because I wanted so much to see Toriel again...but then it took three separate sessions over the course of about 6 months to finish. The last one was brought on by an article on this site. I had forgotten that I was [] <- this close to finishing the route I had been gunning for! And once again, it came at a time when I was severely depressed...so...thanks, guys. I can certainly say I've been filled with a lot more determination each and every time I played.

Okay why are all of Falcom's online storefronts like, 10% Falcom games, 90% porn >:TTTT

Because the Japanese PC game market is a veritable blackhole of filth, and even the good games often have to have some porn, or else they'll get sucked into the event horizon. =|
