Sold.

Thieves and Pirates have to be professions that have been most romantically distorted by fiction.

Emphasis on the romantic. :L Can't wait until the screenshots come in...

ARGH! Why do these companies keep putting their console remakes on the friggin' 3DS!? Yes, the New 3DS is a lot more impressive looking than the old model, but it's still nothing compared to consoles or even the Vita.

Because there are over 50 million 3DSes on the market and it requires the least amount of effort graphically to make games for.

Been playing an old Famicom RPG called Lagrange Point, which was apparently fantranslated only a few moths ago. It's got a sci-fi theme going, a lot like Phantasy Star but with less sci-fi elements and no first-person dungeons. Actually, it's been pretty smooth so far. For an 8-bit RPG, it feels very remarkably modern - relatively smooth difficulty curve that doesn't force a ton of grinding (though I did have to grind to survive the first major fight against Oregai, but not too much. In fact, most of the "grinding" was me traveling between Iron City and Ceramic City twice), Decent Skill and BP systems that put an emphasis on risk vs. reward, a factory where you can combine weapons to make new ones, and a story and world that actually feel pretty fleshed out and detailed compared to a lot of games in its day, even the Phantasy Star games. Not to say the story is great, but it really tries to hold to the sci-fi premise, at least so far. Most of the main characters aren't fleshed out, though. I have no idea who Dennis is, but I have a feeling he won't be missed now that I have Kiesa (probably was supposed to be "Chief") Falconra. It does suck to have to lug around Pamil, though. Dude's not that useful, though he does cure robot status problems...which I've yet to encounter...

Anyways, just stopped into Land 2 and got lost immediately. I forgot which way I was told to go, so I ended up in Mu's Laboratory. I was not supposed to be in Mu's Laboratory. Holy crap was I not supposed to be in Mu's Laboratory.

Hey, I'm still alive.

Man, I haven't posted here in months.  Somehow or other I just kind of felt I needed to take a break from the site, then once I did it I found it strangely hard to go back.  I had never even intended to be gone so long.  But had been spending entirely too much time here arguing about stupid shit that doesn't really matter and it felt pretty good to get away from it.  Even though I had mostly myself to blame.  Oh well, I'm sorta back now but I'll probably not spend as much time here as I used to.

Did anyone miss me?  Did anyone even notice?

I'd been wondering where you were, actually.

I know I haven't been in too much of a posting mood on all three sites I go to (here included). I still post, but I haven't really had the urge to follow the conversations. I guess because I've mostly been in a retro games mood for a while now, and none of the sites I go to are good for that. Might have to look into retro games forums again, I guess...

I just spent the last hour only just BARELY succeeding at yanking my idiot cat out from under the stupid shower floorboard while simultaneously STRONGLY succeeding at sweating profusely, swearing so loud the neighbors could all hear me, getting myself covered in the cesspool of filth that lives in the crawlspace and getting the ever living dogshit scratched out of my arm.  I'm hot and sticky and almost certainly germinating multiple unspeakable infections as we speak.  But at least the cat is ok.

The deed is done good Job Soldier


So as a reward, here's what's probably the absolute last thing you want to be seeing right now. =P

I rather liked Phantasy Star 1.

The other genesis ones that aren't PSIV though...

Same. Compared to the other 8-bit RPGs we got in the states, Phantasy Star was decent fun. I'd certainly take it over any of the Dragon Warriors or FF1.

Then again, Phantasy Star II was fun in a "I can't believe I'm making progress in a game that clearly does not want me to play it" kinda way.

I'm surprised that Zelda is a recurring one.
I thought people liked Zelda games =P

I love Zelda, but there's always a slog point in every game, and I usually "take a break" for a couple years whenever I hit that point...

Got cock-blocked on the paypal thing by my folks (they have my bank password, so at the mo. I'm at their mercy). >m< Oh well...sorry...

I know its probably none of my business, but your profile says you're 23. I get that you might still be financially dependant on the folks at this point, but it seems rather odd that they would have full control over your bank account.

Partly because I'm on disability (at the moment, I have a job now, so it won't last), but mostly some poor judgment in the past made it so my parents no longer trust me with money.

*Sigh* In retrospect, I shouldn't have said anything before, let alone make a promise. I forgot that Paypal required two forms of payment (a main and a backup), all I have is a Visa gift card. I know I did this to Ramza before, too. Sorry guys...

...crap, I just realized I'm a month behind on this season. And I missed pretty much all of last season...might go on a binge soon-ish.

As for next season, Gangsta., Dragon Ball Super, Wooser Season 3, and Ushio & Tora are all the ones I know I'm excited for. There's a couple others I may check out someday (Classroom Crisis had my attention at "Japanese Martian Prefecture"), but otherwise, next season will be a good catch-up season...

EDIT: You know what, here's the others I'm slightly interested in, just because lists:

Classroom ☆ Crisis
The Hero of Rokka
Gate
OverLord
Charlotte
Chaos Dragon
Akagami no Shirayuki-Hime
God Eater
Aoharu x Kikanjuu

Pretty much in order of interest.
Bunch of movies I'm interested in, too.

Sounds more like he meant to say Stella Glow and got the words confused. I mean, I would rather they localized legend of Legacy, but I have a feeling that slip might just lead to some disappointment...

The Legend of Zelda Oracle of Seasons

Purchased: 2001
First completed save file: 2009

Played it off and on for 3 years until I got to the final boss and lost.

Picked it back up out of the blue one night and beat the final dungeon and boss in two tries. That same night I beat the true final boss in Paper Mario and played through Star Fox 64 twice, beating it on the normal route for the first time on the second try. Both were games that I had purchased around the same point as Oracle of Seasons. In fact, I believe that was the same save in Paper Mario I had been using since I first started playing the game.

Needless to say, I felt great in the morning.

I was 19 when I made that comment. Where does the time go...

I dropped out of college around the time you made that comment. Where did my life go...

Mystery Skulls - Money

I'm starting to get into this band. I also listened to "Forever" and "Ghost", which I think is on the same album, both of which are fantastic songs. Money isn't quite as good musically, but I will admit that it has a nice beat and my favorite lyrics out of the whole album (which I didn't realize at first. I didn't quite catch some of the wording, but it's more about worrying about money and other anxieties, which is a nice change of pace for Mystery Skulls)

No wait, Money is on the EP. Which has "Amazing" and other amazing tracks. Really starting to like these guys. Forever, the only studio album they have out right now, only has one track I genuinely disliked. A few others had lyrics that didn't sit well with me, but musically they were still really good.

It's basically like the stuff they give you at the dentists, you swoosh it around and spit it out.

So again, like Toothpaste and Vodka.
