You know, I think clothing culture in much of the world has it wrong.  Why can't guys wear skirts?  Let's be honest fellas, when you're wearing underwear and pants, it bunches up, constricts the boys (sometimes doubly so), you're constantly adjusting yourself, being the minister of silly walks (from Monty Python) to get comfortable.  It's a right nuisance.  That's why I go commando and even then, I find myself squirming in my car seat when I'm driving because my pants are constricting my balls.  

Now, if I could go commando in a long, flowy skirt every day, I would be the most comfortable guy on Earth.

Scotland got it right with kilts.
Bah I say. Bah! :p

I never have problems with clothing bunching up. I would never be interested in wearing a kilt or skirt either. I have massive hands, and I value having pockets of sufficient depth to fit my hands. Pockets of that depth do not work on flowing clothes like a skirt or a dress. For context the pants I wear that have pockets of perfect size can fit a 1 L container of Listerine in each pocket. Ah those pants are amazingly perfect....also if I wore a skirt or kilt I would be flashing every person to walk by, probably without noticing. >.>

On the topic of housewear, I tend to wear gym shorts as they are nice and light. I also sleep I them, so I guess they count as PJs?

This has been making the rounds so I'm guessing most of you have seen it already, but oh well.

NYT investigation suggests that our champion of the common man may not have paid taxes for 20 years using loopholes in the tax code. What a shocking turn of events.
I don't know if I would say "shocking" as his tax returns that we had from the 80s showed him paying 0 in federal taxes, and his bankruptcies that are the result of this loss are not secret. However, this info could make for some really good attack ads. Basically focus on how his business record is littered with screwing over the little guy from not paying contractors to not paying taxes because he failed, then wrap up with "Donald Trump thinks the rich pay too much in taxes, he already pays zero." Or something.

Moving on to the final chapter of Trails of Cold Steel. Final boss of Chapter 6 took me 4 tries, but I didn't let myself get frustrated (which was really hard since attempts 2 and 3 had him at 1 more hit worth of health) and just powered through. My saving grace was letting the other two enemies take themselves out by keeping Crescent Mirror up instead of cancelling their Arts. Did not see the twist coming, though, and now I'm really anxious to see what Chapter 7 has in store.
Chapter 7 is great. I guarantee you that there is at least one more twist that you will not see coming.

In a piece of goofy-stupid, yet happy, news... I FINALLY figured out how to disable the sutocorrect on my phone.  Feels so good to text without hypersensitive training wheels again.  It's the little things, man, it's the little things.
...."sutocorrect." I cannot tell if that was intentional or a hilarious coincidence. I suspect it is the former, but I choose to believe it is the latter.

and Spoilers (sorry I don't know how you do spoilers here):

The tag we use here most frequently is [ code] (remove the space at the beginning).

Well I think part of the reason I'm frustrated is because the annual holiday game drop is almost here and this game is really starting to feel never ending. Combine that with very little time to play due to school and work, and I'm really getting anxious to finish this one. I'm at the very end of Chapter 5, though, so I'm getting closer. Hoping to finish it by the end of the first week in October.
To give you an idea of how much is left, there are 7 chapters total and the seventh chapter doesn't have a field study portion. I don't know how much time you have to play games, but it should be doable.

re: the news story that just went up about some unlocalized content...


I mean, I've seen worse (Ar tonelico 2...). But this news alone helped me prioritize my game purchases for the latter half of the year. Steins;Gate 0 just won out over this, at least for now. I can hope to get a used copy for $25 someday.

Y'see, while they claim they'll "fix it," with 3DS, they'll be fixing it ONLY if you purchased it digitally. Nintendo developed absolutely no way to add "patch" content to a game you're playing from the physical 3DS cart. If you don't believe me, do some google searches regarding the game-breaking "PEC Room" save glitch in Virtue's Last Reward.
...if there is no way to patch physical 3DS carts, why do I know for a fact that there is a patch for Pokémon X/Y to fix the game breaking bug from saving in a specific location?

Wow, Legram has such a beautifully relaxing atmosphere, both in visuals and background music. Might have to make a separate save file just to come back whenever I want. It makes for quite the "calm before the storm" setting, given the obvious foreshadowing of events to come.
Chapter 5's field study is great. Probably one of the two best chapters in the game. Not only do you get to go to two locations (both of which are great), but you get introduced to Toval! And I really want to give a (minor?) spoiler relating to him, but I'll save that for when you beat the game (if I remember).

Whelp at this rate I'm never finishing Trails of Cold Steel since every time I sit down to play it I end up hitting a brick wall.

This time it's the boss at the end of Floor 5 in the old schoolhouse. The one that nothing I throw at it causes any kind of significant damage and that can one shot a party member whenever it feels like.

I'm really starting to get a very different opinion about this game than I initially had.
Wish I could give better advice but I don't remember much about that boss. Looked up a little and some recommendations I found are:

1. Equip freeze resistant accessories
2. Save your S-breaks for when criticals show up
3. Make sure you are spreading your characters out as one of his major attacks is a line
4. Elliot gives really useful buffs for the fight
5. Remember you can swap in your backup for additional S-break attacks

I hope these are useful to you. This is the best I can provide at the moment.

Mesh sounds to me like you might have stumbled onto an illuminati secret facility. The bathroom door didn't have the all-seeing eye instead of a gender indicator did it?

Trails of Cold Steel really gets under my skin sometimes. Love the story, love the characters, love the combat... but as a completionist the structure just pisses me off. Spent hours in chapter 4--up to 68 in total for the game--making absolutely sure I talked to everyone and visited everywhere between every single event and I still wound up missing something and getting an A instead of an S. Since this already happened to me once before in Chapter 2, I'm not too shook up over it, but it still is just a reminder to how irritating the game's structure truly is.

Well here is a list of possible missables (assuming you do all optional quests you are given) in case you are curious.

-Points for winning the swimming race
-Points for fulfilling conditions during the fight with Alan against the Skell
-Points for optional swimming practice during day free time (additional point for winning)
-Hidden quest to return a brush during the evening free time
-Practical exam bonus points
-Hidden quest during second day of field study to return a briefcase
-Bonus points for entering the park using the secret passage during second day of field study (thereby showing security a weakness in their defenses)

So I just gave myself my first self done haircut...I think it turned out alright? I won't know till tomorrow when I actually have human contact, but I don't feel any hairs that are too long. It will certainly be nice if I don't have to pay 10 dollars for a buzz cut from now on. >.>

On the topic of going to sleep, I have always had to have a nice cold glass of milk before I go to sleep...and with every meal. >.>

But now you've thrown me a curve ball. How can I deny a brazen request to fill the parodied shoes of Tommy the Green Ranger? You've illustrated bravery in your willingness to volunteer good sir and that goes a distance with this ninja.

Only time will tell as the seasons roll on following halloween (we need to resume our regular scheduled program of Darkest Dungeon soon). This COULD of course all prove a mute point altogether considering I don't actually know there even will be a sixth ranger as I am not keen on spoilers. AND IF ANYONE KNOWS DON'T SPOIL IT
Hurray! For the record, green is my favorite color. :p

I would be shocked if a game parodying this genre doesn't have a sixth ranger at some point. The mid series extra ranger has been part of the genre since before mechs if I'm not mistaken.

P.S. Minor thing, but I believe you meant moot not mute. As I have clearly demonstrated that I am not being silent on the topic. :p
44  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: September 17, 2016, 06:20:02 PM
Klyde, if you happen to get any additional ranger slots later on in the game, I'd like to put my name into the running for sixth ranger. :p

Whelp beat the last "main story" boss. Now onto the epilogues! Some interesting revelations at the end of the finale. I knew most of them already, but there was one which caught me completely off guard.
