Oh yeah, I like the look, creepy is good for a demon-like creature. Just sayin', didn't expect that out of a Persona game's main...persona, even with the warning.

Anyways, I decided to restart Persona 1 and...what was I on when I played this last? I didn't remember a single lick of this beginning segment correctly. I think my brain cobbled together the beginning of Nocturne and Persona 1 to create a very sloppy picture, which in turn had me hesitant about the game's story. But it's...actually pretty interesting so far. I could get into this.

If my PSP worked. Which it doesn't. F***. Now I gotta wait for the next Persona Sale...I mean, I could get a new PSP, but they still go for $140. I'll either wait until I see a sale, or just get it in June when apparently my brain flies the coupe and I spend a lot of money on stupid things...no seriously, I just realized that's been a pattern for me. :(

What are you talking about, that's not so bad...oh wait, I'm looking at the wrong pick, here's the right-


Actually it kinda looks like Persona 2 Innocent Sin's Main persona. But creepier. Way creepier.

I thought it was suposed to be dream-like in some way. Like, wasn't it literally just Chopin's fevered dreams? I could overlook how silly it could be with that context, but silly it still was. I've seen "Dream-like stories" done better before, too. Still a helluva game, though. Same with Star Ocean: The Last Hope.

I wouldn't call Eternal Sonata "stupid," it gets a bit silly, but the gameplay is pretty solid with a diverse and quite large cast of playable characters. And the game doesn't involve a lot of frustration if you grind a bit before each boss fight.

Also, while I adore the first two Paper Mario titles, I still think Super Paper Mario is the best in the series. It's my second favorite game on the Wii and lands somewhere on my extended list of favorite games overall.

Oh yeah, I loved Super Paper Mario. It's pretty much everything I ever wanted a Mario game to be.

Anyways, if you want the opposite of Darkest Dungeon, Paper Mario really is the best way to go. I'd actually recommend most of the games Tomura listed (to a degree) so long as you don't mind silly plots, though. IU is the only exception, if only because I felt its combat got repetitive very quickly and that's all it really had going for it, IMO...

True, but the paint smell gives me a raging headache, as does the spray, I don't use it. The results are fine, IMO. I just want to build the damn things. Half the time they wind up in my closet after a while, anyways...more often now that I don't have the space.

Speaking of which, I guess I could put shelving in, but I'd have to put these pictures away...pictures I didn't even know I still had. Why is there a picture of fluffy teddy bears on my wall? And a Framed Star Wars poster? I don't even like Star Wars...don't even get me started on the framed stamps (seriously, where'd those come from???)...

I'm keeping the framed post of the original Power Rangers, though.

Actually, Gunpla is a snap. I'm not that good with my hands, but so long as you pop parts out of a mold and follow visual instructions to put them together, it's not that intensive. It's really only technical if you paint them (but they usually come with stickers, so I just use those...).

Then again, I've been doing this stuff in one form or another since I was little, so take that for what you will.

Played a LOOOT of Banjo-Tooie. This game is much harder than Kazooie, and a lot less collection-focused, oddly enough. It's more adventure-y...which normally I'd like, but I feel like I'm not having as good a time as I did in Kazooie. :/

I'll admit, I always assign so some rules like that when I play Final Fantasy 8 and other easily-broken games. Sometimes it makes them better. Other times I realize why I resorted to breaking the game in the first place. =P FF8 is usually the former, though. It's good fun when you don't abuse it.

Wait, Apotheon isn't terrible? I guess I'll give it a shot, then. Also, congratz on getting a Platinum Klyde...I'm sure it feels good, not that I've ever gotten one...

I think I'm finally starting to understand that flow chart, so maybe now I can class change my 5 or so Na Chos or whatever the hell they're called...after a ton more grinding...

Also played some Mark of the Wolves on MAME after gushing about it on another forum. I still love this game, especially now that I have a proper controller for it. There isn't a single character I don't enjoy playing as, too. They just nailed damn near everything.

That said...it is hard. I've only ever beaten the game once (on the Xbox 360 of all things!) with Freeman, and I can see why after warming up with him...he's relatively cheap. He's fast and he has a weird range with odd movements that can throw off even the computer. He also combos a little better than other characters, meaning it's much easier to button mash with him. He's relatively weak, though, to balance it out, and most of his attacks are predictable enough with practice. I've actually never really had much of a problem fighting him, IIRC. At least no more than any other character.

But I cannot beat Khushnood Butt (yes I looked that up...). Not in a million years. He said so himself, and I'm inclined to believe it...

It looks cool. Except the weapons. I understand he wanted a Zelda 1-ish stabbing attack, but the animation of it just looks odd, and the strange (again, probably stylistic) proportions to the main character is actually pretty jarring at first. But that's just a nitpick. I'll keep an eye on it and I'll see if I can get it when I can (might have some left over when I get a $50 Steam card next week). I'm a sucker for NES-style games...

More Dragon Quest VIII. It says something about the nature of this game (and my tendency to enjoy this series) that I've actually enjoyed the silly British accents, when in games like Xenoblade I've found them to be rather grating.  Every character is just so damned likable.  This is quickly becoming a game (like Tales of Vesperia or Baroque) that I regret not playing years ago.  I have no clue why I sat on it this disc for almost 8 years.

I did the same thing and more or less came to the same conclusion. Clearly I was insane for not playing this game sooner.

Ah yes, Final Fantasy Tacics Advance - Grinding. Lots of grinding. I didn't even know you could grind in this game. I remember in my last playthrough (years ago...) that a lot of the missions were available for a limited time, so I always had to be productive. But no, I've had missions stick around since the beginning of the game. And most of the missions are dispatches, too (which are terrible until you have more guys than you know what to do with. Which doesn't take long...). Also, since each member has to unlock classes individually (and I don't even know precisely how to unlock classes...the Wiki only gave me a flow chart with no legend...), grinding is pretty necessary. At least random clan battles aren't hard to come by...too bad they're always easy as pie. :/ Seriously, who are these chumps coming at me with level 3's...my clan is level 12...

If by "television" you mean, "the 4 networks that actually have more than one decent program on it, plus the two pay networks, plus the streaming and on-demand services that you can technically use on a television" then yes, I'd agree. Otherwise, no there's just more channels now with the decent programming all spread across a million different channels (which are largely own by the same 6 people anyways), many of which are in direct competition with eachother to the point where they often follow similar formats and styles.

Of course, I have Time Warner Cable, so take that for what you will...

...also, I'm not much for Television in general anymore (but would be willing to watch a Zelda TV series see I'm totally on-topic!!!), to the point where outside of Anime and the occasional J-Drama, I can't say I've actually watched more than maybe a dozen television programs that I felt were truly worth my time in all my years of watching TV - and 4 of those were cartoons. However, this also excludes mini-series, which are awesome - we seriously need more of those, and I'm glad The History Channel at least has caught onto that and put out more good mini-series.
