Too many Tales games have a set of four elemental dungeons. Well, too many JRPGs do in general, but I think Tales has the most sets per franchise. Just finished Zestiria's set, but Bloodborne's expansion is out now and I am having more fun with that.

I don't mind them. Actually, I think they can be a fun tradition as long they try to do something new with them. I loved the earth trials in Zestiria.
You're chasing a minotaur through the temple because a little girl scared it off. Figthing the boss is one of the first things you do in there, which is kinda cool. Puzzles could have been harder, but the music made that dungeon a pleasure to run through.

You haven't even seen the most awesome thing! Not that I'm going to tell you what it is. I wouldn't want to ruin the surprise. Well, maybe you already know about it because the song has been making the rounds on Youtube... But don't worry it's still amazing in-game.

To hell with turkey.  I don't even like turkey.  For me, Thanksgiving is all about the sides.  Sides all day, baby, all day!  That's all I want, all I need. 

I remember when several of my cousins first got married (many to Americans) and we often did Thanksgiving at my house since my mom cooked non-veg in her kitchen.  My aunts and all would bring Indian food, but everyone, including the "grandma generation" always went for the American food- mac 'n cheese, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, cranberries, stuffing... the Indian food never got touched, and the grandmas loved experiencing vegetarian food from a different culture. 

That's awesome! My grandparents were never interested in new things, especially not food. They have this saying over here 'what the farmer doesn't know, he won't eat', and the ones that weren't literally farmers were atleast figuratively.

Yeah, I have no problem with that stuff as long as they're atleast honest about and don't fall back on 'she breathes through her skin' bullshit. I guess some guys (and girls!) just enjoy dumb fanservice, which is fine, as long as it's not taken too seriously. Besides, it's not as if female gamers are all innocent. Some of those otome-games on PSN are kinda creepy in multiple ways. Not to mention all those games that offer fanservice for both sexes, some even going the extra mile for the ladies.

(Xillia 2's hotsprings ending is a good example.
Milla wearing more fabric than she did during the entire game, other girls only showing some shoulders and such. Meanwhile, the guys side is very.. eh, steamy? suggestive? a fujoshi's wet dream right there on the screen?

The Vita should have the raw power for it, but the emotion engine is apparently a huge pain in the ass.  So... depends on how well the optimise the emulator, I guess? 

(The PS3 was powerful enough for it from the beginning, but back when it was first released, they thought it was easier to just add the quirky PS2 components and have it run PS2 games that way.)

There are still healing arts, but they're not as potent as the healing is often just a part of the skill (for instance, there's one that boosts defence and lets you regenerate HP) and passive healing plays a greater role (for instance, there's a skill that heals you when you activate a buff).

That and people want to believe they can climb the property ladder. Like, buy a decent apartment/small house, live there for 3-10 years while keeping it in great shape, sell it for more than you invested in it and move on to (into?) something more expensive.

Anyway, I'm fine renting. I've got a nice place with more than enough space for one person, and it's cheap because nobody wants to live in villages with few facilities. All I have to do is small maintenance and that's mostly because fixing small things yourself is less of a bother than calling someone to do it.

(or worse are the ones saying women themselves are the most at loss because they can't replicate their breast size)

They are? Sheesh, that is stupid. My breasts are not my identity. They are just a part of my body that will look bigger or smaller depending on what I'm wearing. Sports bras makes them look smaller, and so many regular bras contain padding, so really, it's rare to see me or any girl look her actual cupsize. I don't feel misrepresented in realllife because I don't look my actual size 100% of the time, so why should it bother me if I can't change my cupsize in a game?

Sounds like you're better off looking for another dentist. Even if they are right at this moment, people who are so rushed and pay so little attention to patients will fuck up eventually.

1. The black spots on my back teeth have been there for years, have been x-rayed, and have not shown any active cavities at those times.

Could those be medication related?

3. Dental hygienist said the other x-rays looked fine (although I think she also said something to the effect of the x-rays wouldn't necessarily show cavities, which was kind of WTF?).

Well, it's true that some are harder to catch on x-rays due to angles and stuff, but spotting cavities is one of the main reasons to take them.

And in 'yet another goddamn CE, FML' news. http://gematsu.com/2015/11/odin-sphere-leifthrasir-ps4-storybook-edition-announced

Even with all that swag, I still can't justify purchasing this (especially since I'm lined up for like four other CEs this season already). #firstworldproblems #FMW #wintergamingdogpile #goddamnCEs #gettin'tooldforthisshit

That's one of the better ones I've seen in a while. Uusally you only get maybe an art book and steel case for that kind of money.

'Politically correct format'

That's the most offensive thing of all nowadays, isn't it? On US forums anyway... Evil 'social justice warriors' fighting to take away all the fun and as a result messing with freedom of speech itself. That's the thing that actually upsets people, isn't it? The idea that someone is out there to take away all the fun and that they will succeed if game publishers are allowed to give underage girls normal amounts of fabric to wear.

And I thought I was going at a steady pace (50 hours spend on the game thusfar and I still have a weak left before I need to start writing).

Alien world problems: Finally get skell license, buy a fancy brand new skell, accidently drive skell into bottomless ravine on first outing.

Thank the Wave Existence for skell insurance.

You're going to be doing a lot of fast traveling, so if you have the space: get the data packs. Sidequests will drive you nuts if you don't.
