I'm more visual, so my hobbies are pottery (both throwing and sculpting clay), drawing and painting fantasy art.

I like to cook and bake, much to my husband's delight. He goes to the gym extra times a week so he can have extra helpings ;)

I am also a book junkie.

I qualify as disabled (legally deaf) so I am getting some taxes back. That will pay for for 1/3 of my hearing aids that need replacing next month.

On the subject of health, not feeling so great these days. I've been having random attacks of severe vomiting, and my doctor can't figure out why. I have been on a waiting list to see a specialist since October (Canada - where everyone gets health care if you don't mind waiting for it). Starting to feel a bit alarmed since I am now passing blood in addition to the vomiting. Still have another month to go. 

On the plus side, everyone thinks I look great for all the weight I've lost!  <_<  (I haven't really told anyone IRL).

Maybe a digital release is an option? Didn't they say that the PS4 will not be able to handle the physical media, but perhaps it could the digital.

Bioshock isn't my thing, but my husband is squee for the series. I'll probably be watching him play while I am going through EO4. :)

See, arguing this over a forum takes too long, too much to type and most of it gets lost behind other posts. I don't dislike turnbased games, but I'm not going to ask for them instead of games like dragon's dogma, or ni no kuni, or tales of anything. Turnbased is boring, lacks strategy, and makes an otherwise gripping adventure a challenge in how long I can smash my x button before I notice I should heal. And say what you want about the shin megami shit, I've played a few and they operate mostly the same outside of status effects actually working well, meaning I need to heal for those too. Bash XIII all you like, but it required a tad bit more strategical thinking in later fights then hit hit heal repeat. Even tactical rpgs give you positional control so you can target enemies in groups better.

Yes, I enjoy the hell out of games like Chrono Trigger, but fuck balls if I asked them to lleave the battle system alone if they remade it again.

Really? I feel the same way about action. Smash my X button until I notice I need to heal, stop and heal, go back to mashing X. I always felt that turn based games offered a bit more strategy vs. more "realism" in an action game. The action pauses, you can consider your next action, and execute it without being rushed. Turn based games often seem to have more relevant spells, etc. than action games, where they do seem to be mashing one button for the majority of the battle (ok, so random encounters you will often use just the X button too, but at least I don't get sore hands/thumbs from the mash-fest).

Well, I do need something to play on a portable and my Vita needs some love. I'll likely pick up Toroti then!

So for those who have played it, is this a good first game for me to experience this series?

Oops thanks. I thought for some reason the flame was in the South Sanctuary. Now figured out I was supposed to move on. Thought those ships were still there. Derp.

I don't see any.... I am in the building where the conference took place. Am I supposed to go to the other building?

Ah... got my copy now. I got a call saying my game was in shortly after my earlier post but was too sick to go. Vancouver is ignoring the street date too :p
193  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fire Emblem 3DS on: January 29, 2013, 11:34:32 PM
Well, my part of Canada still believes in street dates :(

Jim Carrey movies.

My husband and his friends think "Dumb and Dumber" is the pinnacle of movies. I think its... dumb. I never like the Jim Carrey characters where he is a complete moron. I do enjoy some of his movies where the character isn't an idiot, like The Truman Show or Liar Liar.

Definitely try FF Dimenisons. You can play the prelude chapter for free I believe, so you can see if it feels right before paying for it.
