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.

If you guys want to arrange something, you are more than welcome to. I havn't planned to leave it this long, but currently my gran is in hospital and its to die. So I've been practically living there for a week now waiting for it.
I'm sorry to hear that, man.  Hang in there.

Hey, it's been awhile since we've had one of these. If the people wish it, I would try running another quiz. I could whip one up about Final Fantasy VI or Persona 3 without much difficulty.

The FIRST game music remix I ever knew of: Final Fantasy IV Celtic Moon: World Map theme.  That shit is from 1991.  Damn.

Now I will complain and insult and whine about damn near anything, but I never accuse someone of being pretentious.  Because that would be the pot calling the kettle black in the WORST way. 

Looking forward to hearing the new episode.  Gonna load it up now and listen to it at work tomorrow.

1. Ys Seven
2. Rayman Origins
3. Assassin's Creed II
4. Dust: An Elysian Tail
5. The Walking Dead: Season One
6. Frog Fractions
7. Mortal Kombat 9

Frog Fractions is the best browser game ever, and it only takes maybe an hour.  Love that thing. 

Mortal Kombat's story mode was... surprisingly good.  You use about 12-15 of the "hero" characters and get parts of the storylines of the first three MK games.  I was expecting it to be lame (like just about every fighting game's story mode) but it was pretty strong.  Might mess around with it more later. 

Up next... is more Persona.  Playing Persona 2: Innocent Sin on my PSP and working on FINALLY making a perfect run in Persona 3: FES.  The first time I tried to do this, I missed it by two Social Links....  But now I'm going to unlock and conquer that Elizabeth fight.  Wish me luck....
