Dragon Age origins

Nothing to be ashamed there.
If you had said DA2 though...
Hey, I said DA2 on this very thread a few pages ago!  Aveline Vallen is a saint!  A SAINT!!!

I was writing a blog post last night, probably in the 2500 to 3000-word range.  This afternoon I was making a few final edits and copy/pasted some revised sections into the browser version of the post. 

Deleted.  All of it.  Couldn't salvage it, after nearly an hour of trying.  The only parts that I had left intact were the most recent revisions, which were 3 out of 19 paragraphs.  **** it all.  Currently in the rewriting process.

Hey, I resent that.  I've been reading One Piece for over a decade (I think they were in Jaya when I started reading it, but I'm not 100% sure) - I used to post on the arlongpark.net forums but they devolved into a disgusting mess shortly after I arrived.  Hmm, wonder what brought that about....  Well, anyhow One Piece is one of all-time favorite manga; it's definitely my favorite shounen manga other than Slam Dunk. 

I just barely post in this topic because I don't really watch anime anymore other than standalone films.  I read a bunch of manga chapters each week because, well, reading a chapter takes maybe 2 minutes vs. 23 minutes, plus I enjoy the graphic novel format a great deal.  Hell, I'm like one of the six people that posted in the western comics thread.  Favorite weekly manga nowadays are probably One Piece, Kuroko no Basket, KSKM, and The Breaker: New Waves.  Yeah, I like shounen, sports, and martial arts.

Doing some power-leveling in the sewer stage in DDS1.  Of course there's a ****ing sewer stage.  At first I hated Cielo, then I got him going on the Hama-Kaja paths, and now I'm actually okay with Cielo.  Mixing up my party a lot, but I'm mostly using Serph-Argilla-Gale, but I might switch out Argilla for Cielo eventually.  Don't rule it out.

I agree with Monsoon, Dragon Age II was IMO a wonderful game, let's see...I loved Enchanted Arms...Rogue Galaxy is one of the best games I have ever played and yeah Ar Tonelico is kinda hard to explain liking, hell, any JRPG's with characters who look so anime is a stretch for me to explain to co-workers...so I don't
Wait a second, it's shameful to love Rogue Galaxy!?  That game ****ing rules!  I won't say it has the deepest story or characters, but the combat and skill customization and weapon fusion were all fantastic!

I'm a Dragon Age II defender / apologist.  I thought the game had better skill trees, better semi-random encounters, and really solid dialog, characters, and combat.  Sure, replaying the same dungeons and visiting Kirkwall over and over were major problems; I believe that several of Dragon Age 2's faults were due to its rushed production, and an extra six months could have really helped.  

And ****, on a similar note, I really really liked Tales of Legendia.  Like Dragon Age II, that game had some serious problems in only one town and repeated dungeons, but I really liked the characters and battles.  Weird how I feel similarly good about games that are both disliked by fans.

I really enjoyed Alternative Saga: Ys vs. Sora no Kiseki on PSP.  All of the menus are in English except for the item names, and the storyline is basically "fight these guys in sequence".  The Wikia for the game also explains the different items, skills, and achievements pretty well.  I don't speak two words of Japanese and I was able to sink 20+ hours in and have a lot of fun.  If you enjoy arena fighters like Dissidia and Powerstone AND really like Ys Seven, Trails in the Sky, or both, then I'd recommend it. 

Only minor problem: there are a few spoilers in the game.  One Ys Seven surprise character is playable, and one Trails in the Sky character is outed as a villain.

Aya Brea.  Dayum.

Oh wow. Someone else thinks he/she can win.  That's cute.  I drink beers.

Well, if people are interested I could run a quiz about Final Fantasy VI or Persona 3.  I've put in hundreds of hours into both of those games and could probably do a better job on those than the time I tried a Super Mario RPG quiz.

Does anyone have any idea why one of the high-tier mantras in Digital Devil Saga is called "Wikipedia?"  I checked around some forums; its Japanese name is Kunitsukami (which makes sense, as another mantra in the same wheelhouse is called Amatsukami), but... I have no idea why it was changed.  Was it a placeholder that they accidentally left in?  Some kind of inside joke? 

Well, anyhow, my team is in the mid 30s in levels, and I'm in the Deserted Ship.  Not a fan of Cielo - I miss having Argilla around in a bad way.

Really digging Digital Devil Saga so far.  Only have three party members, right in the middle of the Slugs' Citadel dungeon; looking forward to see how all this shakes out.

I'm in a weird place - several times over the past week I've tried to start up a new game (most of them being RPGs), but quit after 90 minutes and go back to Persona 3 Portable or bull**** card games on my phone.  Nothing's really seizing my attention right now.  Going to fire up Digital Devil Saga tonight and see how that goes.  Bought it several months ago, taking it out of the plastic shortly.

Applesauce has arrived.  Behold the... glory?

Going to only eat two or three a night, because of a family history of diabetes (not joking).  Going to try and have that review blog of them up this weekend.
