Zeus has more appealing cities and is more about the interconnected domestic networks.  Age of Mythology is about combat.  Seriously, Zeus's combat is so bad that 90% of the time it's easier just to pay off invading armies and it's a blessing that you only need to defend your city instead of invade others.

Made a kick-ass city in Zues: Master of Olympus. Then BAM! Windows update. -.-
That game is so baller.  I replay the Athens through the Ages and Trojan War scenarios over and over and it never gets old.  Ever.  Expansion is okay, but not as strong as the base game.  One of the best city-building games of all time for just checking out how crazy and alive a built-up city is.

I'm so iffy on the Grandia series.  The first one has a lot going for it, but spell leveling is annoying and it kinda devolves into "crazy demon destroying world" at the end.  The second one has totally uninteresting characters other than Ryudo and his two lady sidekicks, but has a stellar battle system.  The third one had a really interesting opening, with Yuki proving himself to his mother, in addition to that great combat... but oh sweet Moses was it a generic boring RPG in the end. 

So what do I want out of a third Grandia game?  Grandia has always had decent dungeons and skill systems with AWESOME combat, so keep all that.  Give us characters that aren't your typical teenagers or outcasts - Ryudo was great because he isn't a typical teenager searching for adventure and Miranda was great because she wasn't your typical "mother of the main character."  I'm not saying rewrite the book on every anime archetype, just... give us fully-realized characters that aren't obviously destined to be footnotes on tvtropes.com page.

Estrella from Atelier Meruru.  Mmmm, Spanish guitar battle theme.

More Skyrim.  Thane in 8 out of 9 Holds (all but Windhelm).  Finished Companions.  Finished College of Winterhold.  Middle of Thieves Guild.  Early on in Dark Brotherhood.  Haven't picked a side in Civil War.  Early in main quest.  Once I get bored of those sidequests, I'll stop ****ing around and just beat the game.

PSN: Starmongusse

Starmongoose isn't allowed because it has "mongo" in it.

Probably the most out of date swear filter. Who the hell says "mongo" any more.
RIP, Alex Karras :(

Nah, I'm not shy about any of that.  Hell, me and my roommate invited perfect strangers to our room for drinks and ended up with like forty facebook invites the next day.  Our room number ended up getting passed around on Twitter.  I just didn't want to seem like a creep by saying "hey, are you guys on such and such website? Because I think I read you?" while waiting in line.  Whatever.  I'm not saying I make sense.

I think I saw a few RPGFan staff in line for Yuzo Koshiro autographs at MAGFest earlier this year, but I kept mum about it since it would be extremely creepy to address them along the lines of "hey, I think I've been lurking your website for years?"  I've been to every MAGFest since V in Charlottesville.  It's kind of my jam.

I'll finally be able to SAVE all my benjamins and move through my backlog more easily.

537  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Alright peeps, lets try: Top 10 Favorite Games on: May 10, 2013, 04:50:28 PM
I slapped together my list pretty quickly.  5-10 minutes to come up with the games.  5-10 minutes for the first 6 or 7 haikus.  Then probably 20+ minutes for the last 3 or 4 haikus.  I had an empty window sitting there while I ate dinner for a little while. 

If someone made another topic like it today, my list would be different.  I'm fickle like that.  Right now I'm not sure if I should have put a Pokemon game on, whether I put down the right Zelda game, whether it was too soon to count Persona 4 (played it for the first time in January), whether I should've had SD3 or ToP over SoA or Disgaea, whether it was a dumb move to have two FF games on there or not, or what have you.  I have played a lot of games, and second-guessing for a list of favorites like this isn't worth it.

More Skyrim.  More meters rising.  Mostly Conjuration, Illusion, Enchanting, and Archery.  I should probably eat some dinner.
