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.

Imagine if you put toothpaste in Vodka...at least that's what the one I use is like...

Okay, after a bajillion tries, I finally got past Chester, and now I'm stuck on the dragon boss in the Lava cave. It's one of those times where I always get close, but never quite make it...I had him at 97 health one time, but he's so hard to safely hit when he's just a head. :( Maybe I'll look it up on Youtube again. Or maybe I should've lowered the difficulty a little...this really is a pain in the neck. This game is fun and the dungeons and stuff are interesting, but holy crap, every single boss is balls-to-the-wall hard...

1. Are you keeping your equipment updated? iirc that matters a lot.

2. Make sure you're exploring and not missing any important powerup items.

3. What difficulty are you on?

I was on Normal, and yeah, didn't realize I could buy equipment, so I was very underprepared for that one.

That said, I made it through it with relative easy on my final (37th) attempt. It just took a while to get his pattern down, much like Chester.

Then I accidentally lowered the difficulty during the very next boss (the fire bird), so I beat that pretty easily. Then I got all nice equipment and everything, and promptly got owned in the next dungeon. Took me a zillion tries to get through it and the boss(es?). Of course, once I put on the equipment I bought, it wasn't so bad...

Next I'm going to grab that thing in the lava pit that couldn't reach, I guess. Might see what that wall with the symbol does now that I have a pendant that "reveals the tue nature of certain objects" or whatever, too. Then off to the mountains to find some herbs to save some giant rat-pigs...oh, and look for the hermit so I advance the plot. That's probably important, too.

Though I'm not entirely sure if it will be for better or for worse.

99 times out of 100, if the change only came about through violence, it will probably be a bad change. Just saying. I think the odds aren't in our favor unless people calm the heck down...

"Dragon Ball Super" - New Dragon Ball Anime is Set for July
Quote
Dragon Ball Super, a brand new television anime inspired by Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball manga, will premiere on Fuji TV and other channels in July on Sundays at 9:00 a.m. This will be the first new Dragon Ball television series since Dragon Ball GT, which aired from 1996 to 1997.

The story of the anime is set a few years after the defeat of Majin Buu, when the Earth has become peaceful once again. The voice of Goku, Gohan, and Goten, Masako Nozawa commented on the new anime, saying, “We've always used the word 'chō' (Super) with Dragon Ball in commercials, games and the like, but the fact that the series titled Dragon Ball Super is beginning is the best thing ever.”

Fuji TV producer Osamu Nozaki commented on the new series as well, saying, “As I read the plot [of the series] I've already received from Akira Toriyama, my dreams for this begin to expand. An enemy even stronger than Buu or Freeza may appear...”

Toriyama is credited as the original creator, as well as for "original story & character concepts." Toei Animation's Kimitoshi Chioka (Hakaba Kitarō, Kamisama Kazoku) is the series director, and Naoko Sagawa (Yomiko Advertising, Inc.) and Atsushi Kido (Toei Animation) join Nozaki as producers. Kido entered Toei just as the company was animating the Dragon Ball Z anime's Freeza arc.

I want to believe it'll be better than GT. It has to be. I mean, that was the bottom, surely they can only go up, right?
