Welp, I'm officially in love with Rain-Slick 4.  Everything's gorgeous, from the dungeons to the music to the insane variety of monsters.  The dialog, flavor text, and plot are HILARIOUS and do a great job of lampooning RPG stereotypes and using the Penny Arcade characters.  I've seen tons of nods to Zeboyd's other games and various other RPGs.  For instance, one of the starting monsters (who's quite a strong magic user) is an elaborate Persona reference, with a name and appearance nodding to Philemon and skills like "Eternal Punishment" and "Revelation." I'm about 10 hours in and I'm 90% sure I'm near the end - the final boss has revealed itself and I'm doing sidequests. 

Look, this is an extremely awesome RPG, it recaps the prior games in its opening cut scene, and it costs $5.  It was also basically made by two guys.  You could do a lot worse.

2. Everyone is completely disappointed by the PS4 and XBox One conferences. Nintendo actually puts on a pretty good show, but it gets no media coverage for some reason.
Nintendo isn't having an E3 press conference.  They will have a space and show off some stuff, but they're going to stick to their Nintendo Direct events for things like reveals and major details.  There is a rumor that we're getting some kind of Smash thing at E3, though, so... I'm mostly useless.

I am playing Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 4.  It's good.  Gonna keep playing until I finish.  After I eat some dinner.

Woo!  Unreasonable wishful thinking!

...what?

It's out!  I'm at work!  I should have taken the day off!  Probably! 

The base game is $5, but if you somehow missed its predecessor you can get them in a double pack for $8 (marked down to $6 temporarily).

Yes, Divekick is a joke.  I think it's a pretty funny joke.  Some people think it isn't a funny joke, and some of those people are very adamant about the fact that they don't find it to be a funny joke.  Whatever.  I don't think I want to buy it, but one of my friends decides to I will happily play it with him or her. 

Also: we need a P4A2. Too much of a cliffhanger at the end, with a likely appearance from N_____ and an unknown human accomplice.  My guess is that we get P5 in 2014, and then a year later we get a P4A sequel with at least one or two P5 characters included.

Beat FF VI with a party in the neighborhood of levels 38 to 40. I tried running through the Advance-exclusive Dragon's Den dungeon, but got smacked down by the first boss.  I think I need to get levels a little higher, maybe at least 45 to 50.  I want to clear that ****, so I'm off to the Maranda region....

...what did I tell you!?  I ****ing warned you.
415  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show! on: June 01, 2013, 05:41:13 PM
I'm on board with any of those titles.  I'd also be down for anything involving Tales Of, Disgaea, Final Fantasy other than XI, XIII, or XIV, and Mario RPGs.  It's like those are my favorites or something.
416  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show! on: June 01, 2013, 05:16:18 PM
'grats to Aeolus.  A+ would play again.

Other than the already-really-beloved boss battle themes (Force Your Way, Dancing Mad, Battle With Magus, etc.), one I've always found underrated is Lufia II's link to DS version's battle 2 remix. Kinda standard hard-rock-guitar stuff going on, but I really like the licks and how bright the trumpet sounds. Even in the SNES version. 

And of course they aren't RPGs, but shout-outs to Divine Combat (The Binding of Isaac) and Fast Track to Browntown (Super Meat Boy).  Love Danny Baranowsky. 
419  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What do you do after beating a fantastic game? on: May 31, 2013, 09:55:27 PM
Write a review on my blog, then play another game. I got a never-ending backlog.

More FF VI Advance. Recruited everyone other than Locke and Gogo and about to rectify that. Just picked up Relm and Strago, and then messed around the Veldt for awhile trying to get more Behemoth Suits.  Didn't get any, but I did teach Relm Fir/Blizz/Thund-aga in the process!
