Dude, did they just tease Brother Blood in yesterday's episode of Arrow?  My 1990s George Perez senses are tingling.

Neither P3 nor P4 is that challenging, but I don't really look for a serious challenge in RPGs.  I care more about interesting characters, building teams, and a tangible feeling of power and improvement as I'm playing.  I think that Portable's menu-based navigation (i.e. pressing Triangle and warping to any spot in town) makes everything way faster and more streamlined, but I miss FES's MC equipping six weapon types.  FeMC in P3P is decent; the most important is a distinct lack of that ****head Kenji's Social Link.

I've barely played any games the past two months.  Not even halfway done with Ys: Oath in Felghana.  Messing around with a 3rd playthrough of Persona 3 and a 4th playthrough of Dragon Age: Origins.  I have a problem.

I really want a Vita.  Even if it's just a Persona 4 Golden machine that also has a few indie titles on it.

Will a mix of blue and yellow be more to your satisfaction?
...if we were painting?  If you're viewing this on a computer screen then it's using an additive color system, where green is one of the three primary colors.  If you're viewing this page on printout, then it's likely that you're using a subtractive color system, making the green a combination of yellow and cyan. 

TL;DR everything you learned about colors in primary school is wrong.

Well, now I may want to revisit the Legend of Heroes PSP games.  Was not expecting this feeling to happen, ever.

PSN update currently downloading....

Look, I'm a Disgaea fanboy, so I'll probably love this game regardless of its faults.  I will enjoy the **** out of the main story, do maybe 2% of the postgame content, and then move on.  Worth it.

Aw damn, FF IX is that classic I-really-like-this-game-but-I'm-not-exactly-an-expert situation.  I'll play, but I won't go in with as much confidence as some of the other quizzes. 

And sorry about missing the quiz earlier tonight.  I was predisposed.

Well, I've always liked the Zeboyd games because they take a few simple RPG mechanics, give them a small twist, and then are over before they wear out their welcome.  $3 to $5 for a 5-10 hour RPG with amusing dialog and an interesting twist on turn-based combat?  Sure.  Messrs. Boyd and Stiernberg are more ambitious than ever for this upcoming title and I couldn't be more excited for it.  I've only given to (*does a quick count*) six KickStarters before, but this is the only one where I've considered giving over $80 for.  Might go halfsies with a friend and co-design a monster. 
415  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Cosmic Star Heroine - a Zeboyd Games joint on: October 01, 2013, 05:01:07 PM
It's worth noting that Boyd is 100% against stretch goals: Check the quoted text in this article.  If/when the KickStarter is successfully funded they'll explain where extra money goes, but they don't want to make early promises. 

And if you guys haven't played any Zeboyd games before, their RPGs are awfully inexpensive on Steam
416  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Cosmic Star Heroine - a Zeboyd Games joint on: October 01, 2013, 01:20:45 PM
Robert Boyd and Bill Stiernberg are up to their old tricks again.  Here's the KickStarter page for their new game, Cosmic Star Heroine.  It's a science-fiction RPG with a spy theme that draws inspiration from Chrono Trigger, Phantasy Star IV, and Lunar 2 from a team with four successful indie RPGs under its belt.  Check out the video on the KS page for more details!  Coming out in late 2014 for PC, Mac, PS4, and Vita.

I usually go by canon names when presented with them.  I don't ever feel the need to take ownership of a story's characters unless the game leads me in that direction.  When I have created characters like generics in a Disgaea or Tactics Ogre or a blank-slate protagonist like in a Dragon Quest or Mass Effect I use the male names Malcolm, Hector, Eltrio, Dante, and Randal; for females I have recurring names Rose, Lily, Iris, Godiva, and Samie.  Those male names are from specific video game characters, and the female names are either my family's dogs or my ex-girlfriends. 

Oh, one other thing I do for generics - I use the names of various colors in languages other than English (...about 90% French or Spanish).  My teams in Disgaea 3 and 4 had Azul, Rojo, Verde, Jaune, Blanche, Noire, and Murasaki.

Hey, new P4A2 (P-1 Climax) trailer: http://p-atlus.jp/p4u2/ (apologies if it's been posted elsewhere)

New character Sho seems like a villain.  My guess is that he's the human hacker working with the "mysterious entity" in the endings for P4A.  Two swords.  Could be fun.

I'm traveling most of the weekend so I don't think I'll be able to take part.  Don't want to risk doing this on phone IRC.

Went on second date with a girl two nights ago; she's a friend-of-a-friend I met at a party.  We were going to watch a movie, but at the last minute she scored some Capitals preseason tickets from one of her coworkers.  We ended up going out for drinks, then seeing the Caps-Blackhawks game from some 2nd-level seats.  She was totally charming at the game and I scored a quick kiss goodnight before we went separate ways. 

...keeper.
