Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

(That's actually a horrible cliche that normally I dislike, but it seemed appropriate here...)

Seriously, Klyde, if you don't like the game then just don't play it.  Games are supposed to be fun.  Recreation.  Why do you do this to yourself?
As someone who recently forced his way through Last Rebellion because of the fact that it had been on his backlog for years, I think I can answer that. Some people simply have a compulsion to complete things, and once you have started something you cannot leave it unfinished. It is like a nagging feeling. If you ignore it, eventually it will weaken, but it never truly goes away! It is simply the way we are wired.

We (finally) hit the Roll goal yesterday. Now it is set up so that it is 5k between every currently announced stretch goal. Next up is getting Cut Man into the game. Now then I need all of you to surrender your money to the game  so that I can get color minis. Surrender it!

With the exception of the Dragon Quest installments they worked on, I've never found Level 5's RPGs to be particularly enjoyable. I'm not sure if it's the weak writing, boring combat systems, or higher emphasis on synthesis/alchemy, but I just can't get into them.
Aww I actually like Level 5.....I mean I can't deny that most of their games are flawed at best. But I still like them. If they could just put in an extra ounce of polish I think they could make decent game. :(

It's mot like Gundam AGE's crappy science (which probably consisted of people going "what looks cool/fun to animate" which isn't unique to AGE anyway) was definitely not the problem that show had. You can even hand wave all the stupid "why not just move away from the fucking planet" stuff in the show if you really had to like you can with all scifi and fantasy, the show just failed from a fundamental storytelling/structure viewpoint.
It also failed on a character level in that the third main character is one of the most annoying characters to ever exist. Gen 2 was actually decent imo and Gen 1 was.....meh. Gen 3 though? Oh god shoot me.

The talk of random encounters during puzzles just reminded me of one game I played a while ago which occasionally had jumping puzzles (or maybe it was just platforming) where you could get random encounters mid jump, resulting in you falling to the ground afterwards and having to restart. I can't remember for the life of me what the game was though.

Finished Pandora's Tower with 100% yesterday. Enjoyable game. Liked the story, battle system was nice, disliked the chain controls, also disliked the complete lack of camera controls. Endings were nice, although I wish that the scene I needed to make the backstory make sense hadn't been hidden in the credits of the S ending. Well whatever.

I need to decide on my next game. My backlog currently has Skyward Sword, Disgaea D2, The Guided Fate Paradox, and Persona 2. Well actually has a few more games for Vita and 3DS, but I am holding off on those for the moment. I think I am going to go with Disgaea D2, but I will have to see if that is what I am in the mood for in a few hours.

All of Pacific Rim.....I don't care if it isn't a valid answer.

Is there a specific reason for the hatred towards iOS? I mean, I understand it if the quality of the game suffers but I doubt that would be the case here. It actually looks as if it would fit in naturally.
Because Apple is the devil. :p

A snuggie?

Yep, that's it. I guess I should try it some time, though it does look kindy dorky...

Just say you are a wizard when you are wearing it.

Everyone I know interested in this game only ever talks about the Vita version

They gotta get something to play

They'll have Conception II before it comes out.

I'm not sure whether that's a good or bad thing.
It goes beyond the concepts of good and bad into the territory of amazing.

Add $100 dollars from my grandma to the pile. Although the cash I got kind of got wiped out yesterday  when I had to get my car's exhaust system's flex pipe replaced in order to pass state inspection.

I got:
-One of those blankets with sleeves. What do you call those again? I'll just add it to the blanket stack...
A snuggie?

Will you be able to dispense weapons and upgrades to other players and tell them to get their weapons ready (and by the fifth expansion, gain the ability to get abducted by Not-Protoman at the start)?
I assume no....I'm not sure what he can do instead.

I hate the idea of making your kid play older games. When I was a kid and someone tried to get me play an Atari or etc I realized that it sucked and I could be playing NES. Games are meant to be fun, not history lessons.

But I'll probably never have kids so the matter at hand an my opinion of it is moot.
To be fair there are old games that are enjoyable. So I can totally see introducing your kids to gaming first through good old games. Hell I first became obsessed with gaming due to playing the NES at my aunt and uncle's place the year the N64 came out.

Got through the third boss in Pandora's Tower. Not sure why I was able to beat it the time I did. But whatever, all the other bosses have been fairly easy so far.

Yep, C-minuses.  I'll admit, the loading screens drawn by all those guest artists bumped up my graphics score a bit.  Those actually were nice. 
Honestly I found most of those to be ugly (like the cut scene art) with only one or two exceptions.

So Christmas present from the game maker.....Dr. Light player piece and game card for Deluxe editions (add-on for others) that is a Kickstarter exclusive. Being able to play as Dr. Light hurts my brain.
