While I really don't agree with it being coined an RPG at all (though people have made the argument to me and I SEE the point I just don't FEEL it) I find myself a bit ashamed for my new found love of Borderlands 2.

The game is just so far out in left field in terms of what I typically enjoy. The shame factor is a result of foolishly fearing I may start falling in love with AAA titles and not appreciating the niche JRPG as much as I have in the past. I sort of always liked that I like bad games as it has led to some awesome discoveries/treasures I don't think I would have naturally stumbled upon.
I... dunno if I jive with that.  I seek out good games, and I don't care if it's a AAA title or a weird-ass Japan-only RPG or an indie title that got some positive attention over Twitter.  When anyone disdains a certain development class (?) of game for being indie or AAA I think it's just denying one some good experiences. 

...but with that said, I'm kinda ashamed that I'm playing Persona 3 again.  It's my 4th playthrough in about 26 or 27 months.  Why this time?  I made a mistake in my third playthrough and didn't get 100% S.Links.  Now I'm using a guide and beating a New Game +.  Again.  I might have a problem.

SEASONAL GAMING/ Well I am getting my halloween-ee fix in now folks.
My plan: beat Costume Quest and re-beat Castlevania: Symphony of the Night during the month of October.  Should be fun times. 

Anyhow, I think I'm near the end of Persona 2: Innocent Sin (maybe?).  Xibalba just rose, and I finished the Aquarius Temple and got Chronos.  I think I'm basically in the final act of the game, which is a good thing because I'm about ready for this one to finish.  It's been mostly really good, but I have other games I need to play, man. 

After P2 is finished, I want to finally knock out XenoBlade Chronicles.  I think I'm less than 1/2 done on that one....

I beat DQ II for the first time on the GBC a few years ago.  The Road to Rhone and the final dungeon are ROUGH.  The only main-series DQ game I haven't beaten is VII, because I was turned off by the first two hours.  Like many hopeful DQ fans, I want to play that 3DS version in English.

Sure, I'll play the ***hole heel this time.  Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Monsoon.  I'm good at quiz games.  I've beaten P3 three times in the past 24 months.  I won the P4 quiz last year.  Plus a few others.  Bring it on.  I like my chances

All of these shounen manga ending in unsatisfying manners only reminds me that One Piece is the best.  Right now they're in an encounter against a villain teased over ten years ago.  When Brook joined they brought up a story payoff that was also about 8-10 old.  There's a story that's had some ****ing PLANNING.

Oooh!  Time to start updating my Steam wishlist!

To the surprise of absolutely no one, I support additional Persona quizzes :)

Minoru is definitely better than HSDK, and it seems to be gaining momentum rather than be stuck in ridiculousness like HSDK was for a few years.  Still, it had been around for 12 years and I read it for about six or seven of those dozen.  I was much more disappointed by Kuroko ending after the national tournament.  I wanted them to take on America. 
234  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: September 08, 2014, 05:22:52 PM
Well, Kuroko ended (with a probable sequel manga coming up soon), and HSDK ends next week.  There's also a decent chance that Naruto ends soon.  We're facing a shounen mangapocalypse, people.

Well, I find Zelda's dungeons to be the most compelling part of a Zelda title, heh.  I think of each Zelda game in terms of its dungeons.  The last two in the series I played (Twilight Princess in mid-2012 and A Link Between Worlds a month ago) both had really solid dungeons, IMHO.

Went back to my trusty PSP since the 3DS went kaput (and I barely played the thing, thanks Nintendo.) Anyway, picked up MH Freedom Unite again and have been tearing through HR8 monsters. Looking forward to Yama and Ukanlos.
I find Yama a little boring (moreso than a G-rank Lao run) but Ukanlos is a blast every time.  Whenever I go back to running monsters with old hunting buddies it's usually a lot of Rajang, Teostra, and Ukanlos.  Fatalis just isn't any fun.

Finished the arcade stage in Persona 2: Innocent Sin.  Game is DEFINITELY getting better as I go along, but I still think that Persona fusion is too difficult.

Yeah, I can believe that the pipsqueak would be the only playable one. It'd have been awkward for either Tiz or Magnolia to get the bench after being confirmed as playable for so long.

That said, perhaps the other two might tag along as temps or guests.
I'm guessing that at least one of them ends up as a new asterisk holder.  Most of those bosses are twice the size of the heroes.

...not sure if this is a joke or not.  But then again I was the kid that checked to see if "gullible" was written on the ceiling. 

Playable FF Explorers?  Yes please.  I want to hear more about that thing.

I did a SMRPG quiz one time, and I thought there was a 999 quiz that I was out of town for.  I want to say there was a Star Ocean 2 or Star Ocean 3 quiz?  But I don't remember.  I couldn't make that one either.
