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. =|

I also dabbled a bit with Goldeneye 007 (N64), mostly just dying a lot on the second level. I finally realized I was supposed to use all 5 charges on the tanks to take them out, but by that point I was too tired. I'll try to get to it again later.

I'm pretty sure I played bits and pieces of other games this past week, but nothing else substantial.

Meanwhile I was just trying to hold back a long, tangentile astronomy rambling on a website full of (presumedly) nerds, or nerd-like individuals, at least one of whom is an astrophysicist by profession, and could easily remind me that my knowledge of the solar system is heavily outdated. See Aeolus' post for a prime example. The day they announced that Pluto had been reclassed as a planetoid was probably the last time I bothered to study astronomy to any meaningful length...and that was when I was still in High School, IIRC...

With that said, wasn't Sailor Pluto the only senshi to either die, or at least get temporarily removed from a significant portion of the story?

New from the stagecoach MICKEY the antiquarian

Wow, I am most certainly flattered. Especially by the choice of class, if I somehow manage to maintain my sanity for more than 5 seconds, you will be a rich man. Plus, I have been perusing a lot of old pulp-fiction sci-fi novels, lately, not to mention my fervent love of old games.

Which reminds me, I have a new NES game to try once I'm done with the dishes...

*After checking* Yeah all the Outer Senshi jump up, kind of my faves from the series too at any rate.

I should hope so, the real outer planets start drastically increasing in size after- *NGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGH*

...Sorry, I kind of had a nerdgasm there. I'm gonna go get some paper towels...

Yeah, I gotta finish the first one, too. I will eventually, it's just that I left off at a very difficult point. But honestly, I'll probably need to grind a lot now just to remember how to play. :P Brave Default was quite easily one of my favorite Turn-based RPGs, up there with Chrono Trigger in my eyes. Except unlike Chrono Trigger, BD seemed to fully utilize its combat system, so I never really got bored, per se, I just got to the point where I felt I needed a break because I had been playing too much at one time. I seem to burn out on games easily...

So, what's my job and what exactly is Big Sexy Female Dincrest ordering me to do?

You're a plague doctor, man. You cure the sick. Or get people sick. You make bank either way.

Sad thing is, Square-Enix has tried making good mobile RPGs before, but apparently the market for paid content just keeps drying up...like certain people predicted woulld happen when "Free-to-play"/freemium games started becoming commonplace. Guess it really was a race to the bottom. Oh well.

Two discs got fused together? :/
