My thoughts: That's nice, but I don't think I could care less. Nice one, Dice!

And now I want a silly JRPG where random encounter are you and your foes battling in a breakdance competition.

Well, atleast some heroes are already dressed like they belong on the dance floor. (All the other ones katamari'd through a Hot Topic.)

AC is great, if it's used properly (and actually working). If doors are opened often or even kept open, there's not much the AC can do. At the con where I always died because of nasty mermaid air, someone thought it would be a great idea to open some doors to let some frech air in, because letting heat in is such an awesome way of keeping a building cool...

Oh, that Fan Expo in Toronto.  It's humid indoors; the people make the heat, and the sweat makes the air...moist.

Those are the worst. Dry heat is fine, but high humidity, that's when you smell everything. Including the nasty 300 pound mermaid sitting behind the table next to you... The air around her was deadly. And then there was the icecream. I stood in line for fifteen minutes to get some lovely icecream for my friend and me. When I got back to the vendor area, some volunteer stuck his finger in it! Well, we were kinda desperate, so we ate it anyway. And that's how people get sick at conventions.

I caught nerd flu at E3.

Sounds sweaty and smelly?

Oh, con crud. Yeah, that's a lot of fun... It's usually like a bad cold that doesn't want to leave, but depending on what people decided to neglect their health and hygiene, there's a good chance you could drag the flu home. Gaming fanatics are usually the cause of the bad outbreaks, journalists and other professionals not so much. Atleast they're sensible enough to eat, sleep, stay hydrated and wash their hands once in a while.

Nah, I just like free experience points and being eaten by giant monsters. And there are actually very few places you can see but can't visit. Plenty of high place to jump off too.

Don't worry about sidequests, explore! Exploring that huge world is what makes Xenoblade fun and you'll complete plenty of quests while playing intrepid traveler.

I think I just saw the most depressing movie I've ever seen (and that includes watching Watership Down at the tender age of 8). It's a Dutch movie titled Doodslag (translated: manslaughter) about an ambulance driver named Max who punches a teenager who wouldn't let the ambulance through even though the lives of a woman and her newborn were at stake. The punch was supposed to be a warning, but the teen ends up dying. But because Max punched him out of his way, he and his colleague were able to get to the woman in time and save her and her child's life. The question is, of course, is Max a criminal or a hero? The movies lets the viewer draw his own conclusion while the whole thing escalates with the media fueling the fires of both sides. Despite the ending feeling forced and over the top (by non-Hollywood standards), this movie hits hard.

Doodslag is available with English subtitles, so if you feel like your thoughts have been a bit too happy lately, go for it.

It's no Xenoblade, that's for sure. But if it's $40 or less, I'd say it's a decent deal.

Nearly done with The Last Story, just need to finish up the epilogue...

All in all, nice game, but not exactly something special. Not counting a few nasty (boss) battles, fighting is a ton of fun and the game has the decency to not overstay its welcome. A 25 hour investment should be plenty to wrap it up. The story was a big bag of cliche, though. At times it tried so hard to be a tear jerker, but just failed miserably because the drama it's going for is so overdone. And I still don't like the bloom-effect. I made Yurick's clothes a bit too light and now he looks like a walking talking lightbulb! It's giving me horrible flashbacks to Bakshi's Lord of the Rings...

If you're not sure, you'll know soon enough. Akzeriuth is the turning point of the game.

The Last Story is getting better. First the castle was invaded and  Lady Calista/Lisa wanted to go back to her room to get changed. Blue ballroom dresses aren't designed to fight in, so she switched to something pink instead. I dyed everything that wasn't pink already pink as well, because well, if you're going to be the noble with the fancy healing artes, you're going to need all the pink you can get. Then Ganondorf appeared, kicked my butt and kicknapped the princess Lady EstellisaCalista. I chased him, got her back and then the good guys accidently fired cannons at us and now I'm on a boat.

Teddy is the only one who should be allowed to dance like that.

After getting sidetracked by Ghost Trick, Catherine and Dokapon Kingdom, I finally started The Last Story. I'm a few hours in and I don't hate it, but it hasn't left much of an impression either. I like that there's some strategy involved in battles and that characters actually discuss tactics before engaging the enemy, but the battles themselves can be a bit boring. It's a bit like Xenoblade but without all the fancy moves. What you can do is hide behind pillars or draw the enemy towards you, which is kinda neat, but sometimes I feel like I'm watching instead of playing. The standard classic controller doesn't feel quite right for this game, which slows me down in battle. What I do love is the banter between characters. They're very talktive and whenever you're running down a long road or tunnel, they'll start up a little skit-like conversation. It's a nice touch.

Maybe it's just me (well, probably not just me, looking at Metacritic...), but I can't help comparing The Last Story to Xenoblade and feeling disappointed as a result. Maybe if the game had some more colour... It's rather brownish right now. Brownish with lots of bloom. It looks like the bastard son of a modern shooter and a JRPG.

I thought my hearing sucked, but I could actually hear all of them as well.

Anyway, I've been staring at a picture someone took of me at an animecon. My ponytail is kinda like, screw gravity, I wanna be a pineapple!

There's also the whole 'lets go on a trip to sacrifice some teenage girl, yay!' Well, I admit most of the characters in ToS didn't know while everyone besides Tidus was fully aware of what was going to happen to said teenage girl, but hey, it's not as if it came as a shock to the player.
