Ah FFT. I overleveled in that game (by abusing friendly fire and healing). Got to a point where I could beat story missions with Ramza alone, but got my entire team flattened by an obligatory "random" battle against scaled chockobos that I simply could not beat.
I did a similar thing in Vandal Hearts and screwed myself out of the secret ending. I found all the keys (no guide) but when it came to the orb missions my team would kill all the enemies and effectively end the map before I could get to the chest. I tried stripping them of all equipment, avoiding any fighting and making a dash for the orb but it didn't help because the golems would rush me down and get slaughtered by counter attacks.

Borderlands 2.
70+ hours logged so far and I still haven't seen the ending.

I just realised that the two most hardcore completionists (that I know of) on these boards are female. Take that gamer stereotypes! :)

Cecil's Class Job Change in Final Fantasy IV.

This one disappointed me. He went form bad ass Dark Knight to pretty boy blue eyed Paladin. At the very least he finally looked like a Cecil.

I'd have to take a while to recall some memorable gaming moments from my childhood since that's where most of them will probably be hiding.

Off the top of my head I'd say:
Realizing that I now have my own castle in Suikoden.
The Suikoden 2 opening with all the familiar faces (Lets just say I was pretty excited about finally getting my hands on that game).
Watching the Soul Blade intro, at the time it was pretty amazing.

since I now have a mouse with several dpi settings

You need to start playing LoL and Sion

I'ts been a while since I played LoL. I'm going to assume Sion isn't supposed to turn like that when he's rushing with his ult?

Had a cold, might have been the flue but I barely even acknowledge that I was sick so I'm sticking to the "it was just the common clod" option. I am NOT a fan of winter :/

Yeah. We got a shitload of snow yesterday and I've been working remote for two days now.
I don't want to go outside...

Technically its not even winter here yet and won't be for another month. I keep calling it winter because its cold, grey and 5pm feels like its the middle of the night. The only thing missing is snow, and I'm not looking forward to that one bit.
I used to love snow as a kid, funny how things change.

Decided to give Bioshock another go. I've been talking about streaming it for months but never got around to it. So, I finally do and about 15 minutes into the stream the game crashes and resets all my settings. This kind of pissed me off as I spent quite a bit of time trying to fix the horrid mouse sensitivity issues by tinkering with several config ini files.
Let me put it this way, the PC port is less than stellar.
I decided to give it another go, this time without any config tweaks, since I now have a mouse with several dpi settings that can somewhat counter the issue of insane speed and acceleration when dropped to the lowest dpi setting. So far so good.

a creepy classic from the bizzaro parts of Youtube.

Don't watch if you get freaked out by spiders or cows.

On a bus starting what's supposed to be a five hour trip. Problem is that it was about 30 minutes late and has managed to move arond a mile since it left the stop. F*ck traffic :/

But is it worth it, story and overall experience wise?

If you skip TLJ you pretty much miss out on the entire origin story of April Ryan. It also introduces you to the worlds the games take place in. I never got very far in Dreamfall (even though I've been meaning to for YEARS) so I'm not sure how much catching up it offers in that regard.

Thing is that I'd be playing on actual hardware (assuming it still works, and I have enough blocks of memory to work with; I know I don't have enough for a SaGa Frontier 1 playthrough, and its been next to impossible to rectify this) so I won't be able to post screenshots or gifs, and I don't know how entertaining that would be.

You don't really need to use actual screenshots from your playthrough, plenty of screenshots and artwork on the internet that will decorate your topic if you feel it's necessary. I didn't use any pictures in my thread and people seem to enjoy it regardless so I don't think its a must, though it sure helps in giving it more personality. If you want to go full on Dice mode and go the extra mile to illustrate your topic and give it more spice then google is your answer, you also have this to get you started.

I've been looking at Adventure games and possible digital comic style games. Neal's reviews in particular.
I'm pondering playing The Longest Journey, but have seen some people recommend just skipping it and playing Dreamfall: TLJ. What do you guys think?
I have a very small history with graphic adventure point and click games, and that's because I always get stuck. So, I want a great story with some not too challenging puzzles.
Also, if I were to play my very first digital comic, what should I go for? I see popular ones like Analogue: A Hate Story, and think I should try that, but am just not sure.

If you can get your hands on it, I don't see why you would skip TLJ. I can't remember how complicated the puzzles ware, but I don't think it was Discworld level of head scratching.
I'd also recommend Broken Sword, especially the first two. I'm not sure how good the remastered/remade versions are but the originals ware fantastic.
Can't help you with Visual Novels, I don't really play them.

Yep, Wild Arms 2 seems perfect :)

I kinda wanna do a Let's Play type thing for these new boards. Or a journal type affair ala Dice. I'm busy with a review game just now, and then I'm going to Germany on the 27th, so it'll have to be when I come back from that.

I find it easier to do a game that has a lot of stuff to pick on, but remains entertaining enough not to become a tedious chore.
You could do Venetica, it's both terrible and oddly charming. Nothing like talking to the same guy, with the same voice, that's a completely different person than the last three you met :)
