If you run out of insurance for a Skell Frame, its best to retire that Frame for a new one since it'll wind up cheaper in the long run.

Yep. Only salvage it if there's a equipment on there you want back.

My emotions have been all over the place today. I already went through the 5 stages of grief, and upgraded to the deluxe 12-stage package. Just would be nice if I knew what I was grieving about. I mean, yes, approximately 6 relatives I never met died since November, all of whom were really old and died of natural causes, but it's not really much for me to grieve over.

My Sense of Time is Fucked, too. I was going to give context, but for some reason I'm not sure if it's a good idea, at least right now, as on top of the emotional flux, I'm also dirt tired and totally not thinking straight...

Maybe it's the time of year? I mean, not in the sense of weather, though that might have some influence, but maybe you're reminded of something in the past? I'm always a little down in winter because several over my years in secondary school, several of my classmates died during that season. When it's cold, there's this voice inside my head that says "you're now 12 years older than they will ever be", the connotations being "it's terrible when a life ends so soon" and "you have had a lot more time, but what do you have to show for it?"

Fashion gear: this prevents you from looking stupid. When equiping fashion gear, you get the looks but not the stats. (And while you're wearing fashion gear, regular equipment gives you the stats but not the looks.)

The world feels off to me when I get new glasses. Either the world suddenly looks HD (that's good) or it's disorienting because someone fucked up and objects suddenly feel farther away than the actually are (that's good). One time, I had trouble cycling because the peddles looked really far away and it felt like I was suddenly over a foot taller.

Anyway, I pissed someone off! Again! Some dude did a poor DTP job and screwed up a layout. I didn't see it until after the magazine came out (because I'm supposed to trust people). I pointed out the things that were wrong in the general feedback thread for that issue, complained about the colours used in an overly dramatic way that couldn't be possibly taken seriously. Asked why it went wrong and what could be done to prevent a future fuck up. I thought that was it. I didn't (and still don't) care who messed up, because it's not as if I can go back in time to force them to fix it and public humilation is not the most constructive way to deal with these problems. Anyway, I considered the issue solved a day later. Six weeks later, mister lame layout pops up and starts vaguebooking about it. I hate people.

What is your avatar supposed to be anyway? It looks like a very sad penis that in trying to drown itself in the most ineffective way possible.

Dropharingen is pretty much what I was looking for but the World Markets around here appear to have stopped carrying it :T

I feel your pain. Up until today I would fill up a small bag with two types of liquorice every two weeks or so. The first kind were these tiny square ones with crosses on them that taste a bit like peppermint. The second kind was large and shaped like a skull. One half was liquorice and the other strawberry flavour. They changed the recipe for the first type, and now there's gelatine in it. They stopped selling the second type alltogether.

On the other hand, they changed Katja's Kokindjes as well and those are gelatine-free now. Since Kokindjes are some of the most awesome liquorice candies out there, I'm not too sad.

But I still miss my strawberry liquorice death candy things...

Congratulations! :)

Wow, that might be the shortest engagement to actual marriage time I've ever heard.  Some of friends took years, literally.

Most people do take their sweet time nowadays, don't they? I... don't really get it. An engagement is basically saying you're both serious about it, so why wait years?

I'm so done.  This game is cracking me up. 
Super Saiyan Marth junk while they're J-pop singing the Fire Emblem Theme.... omg... 

With the less than stellar sales in Japan (and on a not-so-hot piece of hardware), I really think Atlas might have misread what fans want in both their Persona games and Fire Emblem...

... That video is amazing. I know Japan has a thing for making things into musicals, but I can't imagine how this happened. At all.

Were the creators like: Fire Emblem and MegaTen crossover? We've already made stuff like that. Like, back in 1994. Let's do something different. ...And troll the shit out of both fanbases.

There's this pink Nopon that's supposed to be a really good fighter (like, she beats up big ass monsters on her own you're doing stuff elsewhere). I wish we could have gotten her instead of Tatsu. She has a cool voice.
Eh she exaggerates how strong she is. You "fight" her in one quest that requires you to finish off something like five other quests (including Defian Downfall which requires five other quests to be completed). Won't spoil what her "fighting style" is. Although I guess she would still be more useful than Tatsu.

Whoops. Haven't done all her sidequests yet. Even if her 'fighting style' is silly and not really fighting, I still like her voice. Besides, I play games in which I beat up things with umbrella's and other random objects on a regular basis. It can't be that bad.

also need to figure out if vegetarian dubbel zout exists

Liquorice? There's Klene's Dubbelzoute Dobbelstenen. Not dubbelzout but still pretty salty: Katja's Dropharingen.

Venco Dubbelzout is on Amazon. They don't list the ingredients, but I can check them for you in the supermarket if you want.

I actually really like the Prone.  I'm not sure how they 'do it' given the size differences between male and female but their faces and wonderfully terrifying.

Weirdly enough, that warrior race has some of the more emotional/personal quests. You help some star crossed lovers, play matchmaker, arrange several funerals...

I upgraded from Windows 7 to 10 on my laptop when 10 first rolled out. I swear 10 killed the track pad and internal wifi adapter. Neither has worked since the "upgrade". Fuckin bogus, but not the end of the world. Thankfully, I had external back ups at the time. Other than that nonsense, I'm OK with 10. It doesn't get in my way. I do agree that it altogether seems like an unfinished idea, though...
One big positive about 10 is the speed. The laptop starts up in mere moments. MUCH faster than the Win 7 install did on its best day. Also, data transfer to/from flash memory and external USB devices is much faster with 10 than with 7.

I did notice my parents' PC boots up in mere seconds, but I don't really see that as a big deal. My Windows 7 laptop doesn't take long to begin with - 20 seconds or less (not counting the times it decided to try to boot from random places for absolutely no good reason). After that it's on for most of the day.

Faster data transfer does sound nice, I admit. But I wonder how much it would affect my hardware. I mean, I'm using a decade old external harddrive for back-ups. That thing does not know what thr word 'fast' means and I doubt it will ever learn. Other files (photos, the occasional PSP/Vita game) aren't all that big.

Pfft, poffertjes defeat all!

Look at the cuteness! Can you withstand the cuteness? Plus, you can you can put stuff like custard in them and pretend they're tiny round taiyaki.
29  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Completion List 2015 on: January 04, 2016, 06:54:47 AM
unless I look at Tomara's list

There are a dozen on so games on there that are less than 5 hours long. Some are as short as 1-2 hours.

On the other hand, Xenoblade X can be as long as 5 regular games, if you want it to be (and I did), I put way too much time in Zestiria (I blame Jade), and according to my 3DS I played Pokémon Picross for 70+ hours.

... So, I guess it evens out somewhat, maybe, but still, it's not that bad, right? Right?

I'm fucking level 33 and still haven't started chapter 6. Dear god why is there so much to do all the time?!?!?!

Because Xenoblade X was designed by our future robotic overlords. It's a mere prototype, though. You see, generating a Matrix like they do in the movies is a lot work and consumes a lot of power, but what if they can occupy humans with an immersive yet relatively simple videogame? That would be so much more efficient! That's why the game has the ending it has: when the next one comes out, we'll have to play it no matter what and when we do, we're all doomed.
