I think Wario Land II is great if you...don't constantly compare it to the game that succeeded it.

Also, I'm getting bored of FF14. I kinda used up most of the quests available to me in Gridania, so now I actually have to do a lot of grinding...it sucks. GuildLeves and Fates make it a little more tolerable, but it's still taking me forever to get 3 classes to level 10...I got one more class to bring up two levels, but if I'm not up to more grinding in the morning, I may just do the level 10 guild quests, then hop on an airship and go to Ul'Dah, so I can get the Gladiator, Pugilist, and Thau...the Mage classes. Mostly gonna focus on Pugilist, though. Need it for the Ninja class, apparently.

I try not to, on any site. I always wind up finding something stupid or embarassing that I said before. I'm glad pointless necromancy is a bannable offense here...right? Am I reading that right? I always thought it was, judging from the bold red letters that appear every time I encounter an old thread...

I have played Persona 4 Arena, and still I can't fathom why such a mode would be necessary. If they have no interest in actually playing the game, especially if said game is a fighting game, where learning and mastering the game is 99% of the experience, maybe they shouldn't be wasting their money. I'm really curious as to what would be more cost effective: spending the resources to design a mode an extremely small number of people would use just attract people who don't even want to utilize the product you invested so much to make...or simply not devoting even the smallest amount of resources to it and simply making an anime OVA/Motion Comic 2 years down the line, possibly included with the collector's edition of Persona 5?

While...that's nice, I can't help but feel simultaneous amused and depressed that there's a game that can literally play itself...

Offering options to your more casual Persona fan is hardly a reason to get emotional over. Fast-paced action titles have done a variety of things to get the player into the action slowly. Of course, in this process the player has to make the effort too. There's no real fun with a little bit of struggle after all.

I mean, it's optional, so it's not entirely a bad thing, but seriously? We're to the point where companies are trying so hard to appeal to non-gamers that they'd offer an option to have the game play itself? I mean, yes, it's a Persona-branded fighting game, but still, if someone just wants the story, why would they pay money for it? People will just watch it all on Youtube or Twitch.tv. There's no reason to include an option like that. If you want to ease people into a game, you teach them how to play the fucking game! That's what training modes are for! That's what tutorials and challenges are for! Don't just rip the controller out of their hands and do it for them, they won't learn a thing! All that does is show absolutely zero confidence in the intelligence and abilities of your players.

So yeah, how am I not supposed to get emotional about that?

So...FFXIV - i unlocked the airship and now I'm trying out the other not archanist classes. I miss Physick so damn much, though. But Lancer is pretty fun. Archer is cool, but I gotta learn to utilize my range. I died 3 times fighting a freakin' opa-opa. Those are, like, squirrel monkeys. I don't even want to know what they're throwing at me...

Conjurer is going to be a bitch to solo...I can't believe I wanted to start out as that. It's basically an arcanist without the little furry thing doing the fighting for you...

I think it's probably just that a few idiots wanted to make a running gag amongst gamers a reality.

Got to Lvl 15 as an Arcanist in FF14 and just did the guild quest. Took me 3 tries to do that quest because my allies are not the meat shields I thought they were, so actually had to do a lot of healing that fight...anyways, I think soon I can change areas and try out some other class. I also want to take on a crafting class...I got a crapload of stuff...

Ah yes, and I made progress in Suikoden. Finally kicked that stupid vampire's butt, right when I was out of magic and herbs. I'll check a guide to see who I have left to get, then I'll head out west to recruit the dragon guys to my cause I guess...then it's on the end-game?

Any horror fans in the house? I have a few questions since I'm gonna try to play a bunch of Halloween-themed games this coming month:

  • Is Yume Nikki more flat out scary? Or is it more creepy/weird/disturbing? I'd actually prefer the latter...
  • Anybody know of any good point 'n' click games with dark atmosphere and themes? I know of a few, like Uninvited, 7th Guest, and Alone in the Dark (the old, old one), but I don't know if they've aged well...
  • And has Master Reboot gotten any better? I remember it getting some iffy reviews...

Re: Yume Nikki, definitely the latter. Although, even then it leans more towards surreal/trippy more than anything else.
Re: Good Point 'n' Click, I'm pretty sure 7th Guest has aged horribly and Uninvited is probably okay due to Sudden Adventure Game Death Syndrome, no idea on AitD.
Re: Master Reboot? Never heard of it.

Honestly, I wouldn't have known about Master Reboot without a review from site I used to go to. Sadly, I left that site because I don't agree with any of their reviews nor their news practices, so I was hoping someone else had an opinion on it...

But thanks for the other two. Trippy actually sounds neat. I'll look a little more into alone in the dark. It's had so many versions I'm not sure where to start, but hopefully at least one of them are good...

EDIT:
Also, someone gave me more info on Book of Memories and iot doesn't sound that appealing, so I'll just take it off my list...

Aaand I looked into Alone in the Dark and even the most recent version looks and sounds like a dinosaur...

  • Is Silent Hill: Book of Memories any good? I'm intrigued by the thought of horror RPGs, and I want to see if this one is intreresting to play
  • Is Yume Nikki more flat out scary? Or is it more creepy/weird/disturbing? I'd actually prefer the latter...

I refuse to play anything Holloween related until it's actually October. Not sure, but I think I'll take a crack at Disgaea and Parasite Eve this year. Or maybe the SNES Clock tower...oh, and Gargoyle's Quest II if it would ever fucking come out in NA. Seriously,what's the hold up? It's on Wii U VC in Europe for almost a month now...

I'm pretty sure you have to grind when Princess Moonbrook is level 1 and getting one-shotted by everything around her since you're in an area where you're level 9 or 10...

I'm saving DQII for last unless we never get DQ7 3D....

Anyways, Final Fantasy 14! I'm a level 5 Arcanist. I love this class so far. I got a little furry thing beating up enemies for me while I poison them, ruin them, and occasionally smack 'em with a book. Been doing lots of menial chores for quests right now. Not that bad, though. Since I picked the arcanist, I'm in the swashbuckling pirate city now (I swear if they don't add a pirate job somewhere down the line...), so the dialogue is colorful at least. I have the whole weekend off, so I guess I'll be playing this for a while.

BTW, I'm playing the PS3 version on an SD TV, so the game kinda looks like crap and I've even noticed quite a bit of pop-in and slow down. I'm not too bothered by graphics (I've been though FFXI, it doesn't get much worse than that), but when I get a PS4 I'm definitely transfering to that version one day.

I thought he was just a pervert, but I suppose wanting to make a really long-lasting creature makes more sense...

All that Final Fantasy talk earlier made me want to play an FF game, especially since I've only finished 3 of the main games (though I've gotten far in a few others). So what do I choose to play? The MMO that's been sitting on my desk since last august. After over an hour and a half of deleting, installing, registering, restarting, and restoring (damn launcher glitched...), I'm finally to the point where I get to download and install the patches for 5 hours. Thankfully I gotta leave for work in 30 minutes. It'll hopefully be ready by the time I get home...hopefully...

Damnit I just want to get ready to play as a Ninja! Well, first I'd have to be a rogue, which is cool, too....and I guess Arcanist, since I want to be within range of the Rogue guild after I hit level 10...
