So... I'm playing Trails of Cold Steel, but I've got to let my Vita charge every ten minutes once in a while. I could use another PC game to use on the side, but I can't decide which one. Anyone want to pick one? Number between 1 and 20, but not 14 because I'm done with Postmortum: One Must Die.

It's always tulips, isn't it?

Anyway, I'm in a bad mood. I donated blood on Monday, something that's usually no problem, but then my period started right the day after. Now I'm too tired for archery practice. Which sucks, because one reason I like archery so much is because it let's me focus on just one thing for a few hours. Now I have nothing to distract me from my magazine related frustrations (Monday is the big deadline, but there is so much to do, but I can't do much because I need to wait for others to finish first and it's just all very frustrating!), which means I probably won't sleep that well despite being tired. Yay...

Maybe I should play some Tetris... That used to work (until I accidently turned into one of the country's best players and got bored with it)...

On a related country-names-note: Holland may not be what you think it is. The name of the country is the Netherlands (Nederland), which sounds sort of evil in English, like a mini-version of the Netherworld. Holland is just two of the eleven provinces (North- and South-Holland). However, these regions were super important during our Golden Age, so the name kind of stuck. The 'hol' part comes from 'holt', an old word for 'hout'(wood), but feel free to believe it comes from the Dutch word for 'hollow' ('hol'). ... Damnit 'Hollow Land' sounds pretty evil, too...

Looks like I have a plan! :D

Trails of Cold Steel will be my next 'big' game. It'll take some time to recharge the Vita, make room on my memory card, and download and install the game, so I'll play Postmortem: One Must Die (14 on my unofficial Steam Backlog) in the meantime.

Edit: Hm, now I'm curious where everyone else got their avatar names from... if people wanna share =-P

I grew up around kids that were not that bright and had trouble pronouncing my name. Many called me Tomara and the food-related puns were endless. I got used to it.

Nowadays people call me by my real name, but I have picked up some other nicknames. Tama and Tami for instance. There was even someone who liked to call me Tamago...

My avatar is from Disgaea 2/the time my hair actually looked like that.

Yeah, this year's list is turning out a little weird... Most games do fit snugly on the 'puzzle - adventure - RPG' spectrum, though. I'm not that far out of my comfort zone. It's more like I found a good spot, started digging for games, grabbing the most obvious gems first, and instead of going to another spot after that, just kept digging and digging.

Whenever there's a big Steam Sale going on, I end up going through all the recommendations to get cards and adding a bunch of nearly random stuff to my wishlist. And then I buy all sorts of games that are 80-99% off... Fortunately, many of these games are rather short (2-5 hours). The most expensive game I bought on Steam this year was We Know the Devil (7,99 - full price) and that was for a review.

I end up enjoying most of them, but I have to admit I'm having a hard time calling some of those things games. Wouldn't a kinetic novel, a visual novel that features no interaction beyond pressing space to get to the next big of text, not be more at home on a list of books read?
38  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Completion List 2016 on: August 16, 2016, 02:20:42 PM

It reminded me of Sissy's Magical Ponycorn Adventure.

22. Please don't touch anything
I touched everything! :D

23. Legend of Mysteria
A magical murder mystery! Well, okay, it's mostly basic adventuring and collecting evidence (steal all the diaries!), and the writing was kind of poor, but it was a really neat idea for a game. And I paid like 30 cents for this, so whatever. I had a good time.

24. Over the Hills and Far Away
A kinetic novel set during the War of 1812, following a red coat on the run and the native girl he meets while hiding from the storm in an abandoned barn. I cried.

Senpai noticed me!

There's this comic artist I occasionally wrote 3 (or 4) panel comics for. It's one of those things where available writers throw around jokes, and I was one of the people who tried to contribute every time, often handing in several complete scripts or setting up ideas for people/her to work with. Apparently she liked my jokes so much she wanted to thank me in particular.

I wonder if I should/could put this on my resume?

(Okay, technically she already thanked me last year (and even asked me if maybe we could work together on a small project sometime), but crippling self-doubt kind of wrote that off as: "She's just saying that to be polite, don't take it seriously.")

Doing what you love for a living is overrated. It's no guarantee you'll make enough to live comfortably, work with/for people you get along with and so on. Not to mention that the thing you love can change over time, or you yourself could change, or both.
41  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: August 14, 2016, 03:48:21 AM
Either that or they caught a bad case of the dumbdumbs (level: let's put a dead Aeris on the back of the box).

Oh well, I don't even have the energy to be upset about that anymore. I need to focus on the endless amount of work I still need to do. Worst part: that's not my fault. Despite me being editor-in-chief, some of my says aren't final. I need to wait for someone else's approval. However, this person is nearly always late, meaning I have to be prepared for different scenario's. I always end up having to do extra work because of that. My workload and stress should have tapered off last week, but more work just keeps coming.

I have nightmares about this crap.

Anyone want to hear me complain about publishers again? I hope so, because I've got a good one.

There all like: "Wah, this screenshot shows a spoiler! Remove it, you meanies (or we will fucking ruin your day)"

And I'm like: "This is all from the trailer...? If you don't want people seeing this, don't fill half your trailer with shots like this? How dumb do you think your audience is?"

Of course, they're just trying to assert their dominance, but the magazine manager thinks this is a reasonable request and might go along with. I hope not.

Edit: ... Now that I think about it, we these screenshots were probably in a pack of assets provided by them.

Well, the stress got to me last time, didn't it? I said things I regret. Playing my part during that boss fight was the least I could do.

The thing that I've noticed about Velvet's alternate costumes is how they all show off her body.  Yes, we get it, she's cute.  That doesn't mean you have to constantly put her on display!  Seriously, how about giving her a practical costume perchance?

There's one cosplay costume I'd love to see her in, something that would be absolutely perfect, and that would be Emeraldas.

Sure, it's never going to happen, but a girl can dream...

Velvet is slowly getting closer to wearing actual clothes. Good for her. And look, she even brushed her hair!

Eleanor is looking cute as Natalia, but that's the type of outfit nearly every female Tales of character can pull off, so no surprise there.

Poor Eizen, though, Hubert's outfit looks good on exactly no one, not even Hubert!

I'm not sure where they were going with Laphicet. I didn't even recognise that as Richard outfit at first.


Is it me or did they go with a thigh-high boots and stockings theme for this set? There's so much wrong with that...
