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.

I always say the words in English way but the numbers in Dutch, so for me it's:
Final Fantasy Acht
Final Fantasy Negen
Final Fantasy Tien
Final Fantasy Tien met de domme naam, serieus, wie dacht dat dit een goed idee was?

Just updated Windows 10.

Installing windows 10 updates apparently resets all of your configurations and can arbitrarily uninstall programs.


My laptop has been urging me to update to Windows 10, and I guess there is some sense in doing as there is a very slight chance of it fixing my RPG Maker problem, but I like Windows 7. I've tried Windows 8 and 10 and my parents' house and it's so invasive. It wants you to sign up for things using e-mailadresses, as if it's some cult.

That's cheating.

(I had my pizza. It was nice. Probably wasn't worth it in hindsight, but it was nice.)

A good burger takes a lot more effort than buying a decent frozen pizza, maybe? Good luck with that.

Yep, RPG's are niche and have always been niche, but weirdly enough it's the more traditional ones that often gather a big audience. Back in the GBA days there was Golden Sun. Everyone considered it to be the must-have RPG. Sure, it was poorly written and didn't really do anything new, but if you hadn't kept up with the genre you wouldn't know that and it would still seem new and innovative. It was just the right game at the right time on the right platform. Bravely Default, Child of Light, or heck, Tales of Symphonia. Undertale counts too. That one just kind of exploded overnight.

I think the trick is not to make a modern RPG that appeals to mainstream gamer, but to convince mainstream gamers that RPGs are an important part of a balanced gamer diet and the upcoming one is like some sort of super food.

Anyway, Final Fantasy VII? Uhm, yeah, my feelings towards the remake are still fifty shades of indifference. To me, the original was very much a product of its time. It was a result of developers struggling and experimenting with new hardware, overly ambitious storylines and themes coupled with weirdly lighthearted undertones and offbeat humour... A chaotic clash between old and new, really, and that's what made it special. It couldn't have been made at any other point in time by any other group of people. Whether this remake will be good or bad, is not the most important question. I wonder if it will actually be Final Fantasy VII.

I want to eat pizza for dinner, but:
-it's raining
-I have a bad cold, which could get worse and/or affect other people
-the supermarket is several miles away and I don't have a car
-rationally, I should just stay inside, because I have enough food for atleast another week before I have to start being creative and eat canned corn and christmas cookies for breakfast

On the other hand:
-doing the rational thing would make me a whiny wuss compared to my teenage self
-pizza is on sale

No, I decided to take a break after 150 hours. Will probably go back to it, but I want to play a few more other games first.

Bros before random girls who may or may not be the key to the ancient mystery that surrounds the island.

Seriously. It'll be an important and/or shocking detail if Adol did not get stranded on some cursed island. The guy must be addicted to getting nursed back to health by cute girls, or something.

Don't worry, I complete that quest before most you even got their hands on the game :p

For some reason I feel kind of sad it wasn't a bigger challenge :(

I want to punch this person!

The situation appears to be under control again, but it took two full days (and I still don't know if RPG Maker games run properly). I don't mind being elbow deep in virtual computer guts, but all those restarts and updates and installs and bloatware removals are too bleeping tedius! Just getting the OS up to date took 8 hours... 8 hours!

But, it was kind of fun, in some ways, I guess, maybe? It was interesting to see the amount of resources un-updated Windows 7 needed compared to a fully updated one. And now that it's all nice and super clean again, things like Hearthstone run slightly smoother.

However, I still don't know why laptop wants to boot from weird places so badly or why RPG Maker games were/are having trouble. Not knowing is the worst.

Don't forget it's also available in the eShop. At worse, it will remain at its original price for years, at best, Nintendo will make it part of a sale several times a year or even give it away in one of those 'buy some games, get one for free' type of deals.

pizza-obsessed aliens (those are my kind of aliens!)

When I first saw, no - heard! - the manon, I thought I would hate them. Instead they ended up become my favourite alien race. The pizza thing certainly helped, but but their childlike nature adds more to the story than just some funny and light hearted moments. They're feared by some NLA residents because of their superior technology. And because they're often naive, they're taken advantage of (as funny as the pizza thing is, it's not proper payment...) or worse.

I don't know how much of that is personal choice vs how much is just rules.  You're not actually allowed to show up to Comiket in cosplay, believe it or not.  They have changing rooms and you're expected to show up in plain clothes and use them.  I don't know what specifically prompted this rule (I could hazard a guess but that's all it would be), but that's the way it is.

I'm aware of the rule (I think it's there because cosplaying in public is frowned upon and the organisation wants to avoid problems by providing changing rooms), but rules rarely keep all the idiots in check.
