Roommate's finally moved in, so the next order of business is a housewarming party on the 14th.  Gotta set aside some booze money....

Beat that Reaper motherfucker and now I'm leveling up in Monad.  I really want to make the rest of the Personae in the Tower, Sun, Star, and Judgment arcana.

I have a little less than three in-game weeks before the endgame of Persona 3 FES.  I have four social links I want to max before then. 

Let's do this.

January in Persona 3 FES is taking up may more time than I planned.  I also finished On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness really quickly, but I think the only extra content is the final Arena boss.

Does anyone know if this creates a new set of trophies or if I'll save my trophies from the DLC versions?  I already own Journey and Flower but this seems like a pretty cool collection / collector's item.

I kept my PS2 so I wouldn't have to worry about backwards compatibility.  My PS3 is the 160gb model. 

I have most of the PS1 RPGs I want, with the notable exceptions of Koudelka, Suikoden II, and Vandal Hearts.  I'd never heard of Koudelka prior my internet-awareness years (2001-ish) and the other two were games I rented, mostly enjoyed, but never got very far with.  Is Saiyuki any good?  It's not based on that anime, is it?

For multiplayer action, Monster Hunter 2 + Unite. 

For RPG goodness, Dragon Quest. 

For "strategy", Disgaea. 

I have invested a disgusting amount of time into each of those.  A few years ago I would have also mentioned Pokemon, Final Fantasy, Tales Of, or other games, but those three are the ones that are most current and the ones I keep going back to.

This game is solid.  I'm currently in Chapter 6.  My expectations and preferences are definitely different from the RPGFan reviewer's, because I love it so far. 

Rain Slick 3's an extremely streamlined RPG with HP and MP management only taking place in battle and the class system in place leveling everything simultaneously.  Equipment is kinda bare-bones, but the class system allows for great team customization while still making characters feel distinct (each character has a base class and two secondary class slots, selectable from around a dozen).  Combat is turn-based, with speed represented by a meter with moving character icons.  Looks like a SNES game, but has too many modern ideas to be from the 90s. 

But most of all, Rain-Slick 3 is hysterical.  The dialog's extremely entertaining, and is absolutely consistent with the Penny Arcade comic strip and the first two Rain-Slick games.  The plot is similar to the first two (oddly arbitrary tasks mixed in with RPG conventions and Cthulhu-esque lore), but it plays like Final Fantasy V mixed with Grandia II.  Plus it costs only five bucks (US$), and if you pick it up on Steam  this week you get the other two Zeboyd RPGs for free.  That's a pretty good deal.

I'm in mid-January in Persona 3 FES and bought On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3 right when I got home from work.  My plan was the beat the former and start the latter tonight. 

But then my best bud came over and we played NBA Jam for three hours. 

Worth it.
595  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Zeboyd's made it big: Penny Arcade Episode 3 on: June 25, 2012, 06:22:30 PM
DLed, will play it later tonight.

Wedding #3 of 5 for 2012 is first weekend in July.  This weekend is the bachelor party.  About to head down to the old college town, hoping I can afford whatever debauchery is planned.
597  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: June 21, 2012, 05:31:18 PM
New goal: beat Persona 3 FES before June 25th so I can make the switch to Rain-Slick 3 when it lands on Steam.  Right now in FES I'm near Christmas.  I've been told that the game ends in late January.  I think I can do this.

Reading Mr. Paradise by Elmore Leonard.  This is my second Leonard novel, and hot damn it's great.  The man is totally unpredictable in his plots (except the nice, hardworking, lonely white guy usually gets the girl at the end) and his dialog is incredibly snappy.  Gonna try the Elmore Leonard book that Justified is based on after this.

Look for deals on NewEgg.com and at parts stores like CompUSA (although I'm not sure they have them in your region...).  Amazon.com isn't bad either, but newegg really is the king for thrifty computer parts.  My last build, which is about a year old right now, cost me around $1,000, but I was able to splurge on a good monitor and videocard because I saved over $300 on deals for memory, CPU, and motherboard.

If you have mighty, mighty patience, then Dragon Warrior VII is worth a look.  I say Warrior because that's the only way you can play it in English legitimately. 

...And I'm a little surprised at Square-Enix.  Why haven't we seen a DQ VII remake yet?  It's been 10 years!  PSV, 3DS, take your pick!
