1  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Unpopular Opinions on Popular Games on: February 12, 2016, 01:54:44 PM
I thought the first two Ar Tonelicos were basically OK...heavy helpings of innuendo not withstanding.  It was the third game that shat all over everything I liked about the series and turned it into a stripping simulator...

Oh... here's an unpopular opinion: I was not disappointed by Ar Tonelico 3
The main reason for that though is that the game was destroyed by every review/critic/gamer and I played it much later going in with really really really low expectations.

The stripping part was super awkward since the graphics were so terrible.  I usually don't dip into dissing bad graphics, but since it essentially made the game cast look like stripping grade schoolers who really didn't want to be stripped.... that stuff is just....awkward af to watch.

Atleast they made the guys strip for their specials as well. It's like, equality, or something.

Music is still awesome, though. Could listen to that for hours.

The offer on the house was accepted. We are now waiting for all the paperwork to finish. By the middle of March I will be  a first time home buyer. A little scary and exciting. The home isn't exactly what we wanted but considering the cost and the other houses available we took the closest thing we could find. The backyard is huge so we can expand and the carport Is right off the kitchen so we can expand the tiny kitchen that way. What's important is that it is livable without any major changes or fixes.

Congrats :) It's rare for anyone to find the first house the first time, if ever. Hopefully you'll be able to turn it into a home you love down the line.

Thing was a piece of garbage but it was MY piece of garbage.

I know that feeling... I'm the same with computers.

By the way, speaking of garbage: my desk lamp broke. Weirdly. I heard a crack and the glass encasing the actuall light fell off. It was so hot, it blackened my carpet before I could grab it with a towel. I have no idea what happened there, because the strenth of the light in there was well within safety boundaries. Now, if I turn it on, the lamp smells like it's burning... Yikes.

So, I'll have to buy a new desk lamp today. It'll be an adventure. There are only two places nearby that sell something like that. The first is a charity shop, but they don't always have stuff like this. The second this dinky general store. The later one is run by this old man in old-fashioned Dutch work wear, I mean, clogs and hat and all! And he has this black cat that hangs out at the store sometimes. It's a bit shy, but you can pet it if you're patient. As for the actual merchandise: apparently there is a huge basement underneath the store filled with dead stock dating back to the seventies. The owner brings up stuff occasionally. I got some cute cups last time there I was there.

I plan on getting through about half my Steam backlog, which is sitting at 19 games, right now. No, wait, make that 20. I just bought an actual murder simulator (made in RPG Maker) for 11 cents. Fortunately, many of these games are only a few hours long.

Saw a Let's Play of that one a few months back, it looked like a neat idea that would probably only last me a few quick playthroughs before it got kind of boring.

For this kind of money, as long as it last longer than a gumball, it's a good investment.

(I probably shouldn't mention there are over a dozen free RPG Maker games I still want to play.)

I rarely start games I don't plan on playing through right away, which helps me keep my backlog in check. I think... I hope?

Consoles are a different matter. I have games I bought 5+ years ago that I haven't even played yet. I will get to those eventually, it's just that I have to be in the right mood. Like, tomorrow, I might wake up and think 'yes, I need to play some Onimusha Tactics now' and then I will play it. This is a thing that happens.

Holy turd, cauliflower was expensive even before the prices went up! Those whole sale prices are at time higher than what you pay in Dutch supermarkets...

BTW purple cauliflower looks weird, like a colour swap gone horribly wrong.

I might be the only person I know who likes real black licorice instead of the nonsense fake cherry flavored twizzlers sugar foodstuff

Black liquorice is the only real liquorice! :( Well, I guess it's fine for some of the more traditional stuff to be a little brownish, as long as it tastes right. Also, bonus points if it smells like cleaning product.

Combining liquorice with other flavours, that's something I can get behind, though. Especially if it's something like peppermint. Fruit is okay too, if the fruit part is nice and fruity. I miss my skulls...

Still kinda weird, but I'm fine with this. Atleast it's short.

I wish I had a comic book shop nearby, especially one so amazing looking as that piece of building regulations violations. (Maybe it's the lighting, but the roof seems to be sagging.) ... That, eh, was not sarcasm. And hey, it would be an upgrade from some of the buildings here, even without the contents! For instance, nearly a hundred years ago, there was a fire in the local windmill. All that was left was the stone 'tower'. That tower is still there today and or some reason it's a monument. That's the most exciting thing we have over here. No, wait, that and the boarded up pub that is said to be haunted.

I usually watch anime. Got halfway through Moyashimon last time. Okay, that was just one day, but not being able to ligt your head without vomiting counts as sick, right?

I'll need some time to get used to that name. Back in high school the average class had two or more Annes (with an occasional Anna or Annelies thrown in), and most of them were kinda boring.

I was looking for a 'something dumb to watch while I crochet stuff' show and, well, Sekko Boys is a work of art! Quite literally! I love it! o_o

You can't pet your waifu/husbando's in overseas Fire Emblem Fates.
(Yet nothing of value has been lost)

Fire Emblem fans: Whatever, that was stupid anyway.
Random angry folks on the internet: It's horrible, horrible censorship! The SJWs are ruining everything! Will someone please think of the Gamers?!

There's this song that's on the radio a lot nowadays. I don't listen much radio myself, but it's always on at my parents. I dropped by before going grocery shopping, Treur niet started playing, and I dunno, it was really hard to not cry. The subject (death) always hits hard around this time of year...

My then boyfriend got SO3 for me. He was traveling the United States to beat people at Super Smash Bros. Melee and bought Katamari Damacy and Star Ocean 3 for me along the way.
