Dincrest is right. I didn't even click Kevadu's link, but I was hearing the traditiooooooon song as soon as I finished reading it. 

And... come on.  That's a weak explanation.  Unless you're creating a specific character with his/her own personality and motivations, a silent "everyman" ought to have a sex chosen by the player.  Dragon Quest has done that for III, IV, IX, and X.  Persona 3's Girltagonist was well-received (or so I've heard).  Is the SMT IV main character's masculinity so important that a female option doesn't make sense?

Woo!  Thanks for running this again!  I'll definitely take part in any future ones you throw; I enjoy trivia games and the like.  Pumped for Chrono Trigger in two weeks. 

And also thanks to Dice, for selling me her copy of Persona 4 last year.  Couldn't have done it without you.

GodDAMN Tactics Ogre Knight of Lodis is fun.  Smart move buying that on a whim.  I need to revisit the entire Ogre saga.

I don't care, that game made by respawn looks fun.

Call of Duty with traversal and mechs?
The lack of a single-player turns me off of Titanfall.  It looks neat, and the giant robots and explosions sure were cool giant robots and explosions, but I value a single-player experience in my games, with multiplayer only if I really want more.  I totally get that I'm not Titanfall's target audience, but there ya go.

It's fun.  Being a horrible person helps (me and my friends mostly count).  So does beer.

So the power of the new inFamous protagonist is... stealing powers? This is Open-World Grunge Mega Man starring Troy Baker?  I dig it.

Threw down some Tactics Ogre: Knight of Lodis last night while my roommate was watching wrestling. This shit is pretty cash! It's nothing to write home about in audio or visuals, but it is a perfectly competent strategy RPG with some neat systems in place. I will be playing quite a bit more of this, I'm sure. 

And unrelated: I have learned SO MUCH about wrestling just by living with a dude that obsesses over it. So much so that I've begun to genuinely appreciate it. I *may* have paused my game for the Bryan-Rollins match.

As someone that had to transport many, many boxes of books, games, and DVDs for a recent move, I am perfectly fine with more digital content. But I still like physical media. Sometimes.

My Twitter feed is on fire with "Sony dropped the mic" and "Sony just introduced Microsoft to the Gimp" statements and others of that nature.  Wow.

Look, I don't want to sound like I'm conducting personal attacks (if I'm going too far, please go ahead and delete this post), but those farting noises made me shut off playback.  Rob was being immature, unfunny, and rude when John was trying to say something, and if John left the recording in a huff, I don't blame him (not sure if he left on purpose or due to connection issues).  I don't mind if Rob is occasionally annoying, like when he harps on his pet peeves or laughs at his own jokes (myself and just about everyone does that sort of thing), but this was just bad.

I finished Rain-Slick 4 a few hours ago. Tremendously good game, but the final god of the Quartet ended up being... a lot like a plot point from an earlier Zeboyd title.  I was amused by that.  I'm already looking forward to any DLC they add, if they decide to go that route again. (Rain-Slick 3 had some costumes, one boss, and one short scenario as free DLC post-release).

All right, feeling pretty good about this one. I played it just a few months ago!

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.
