I wish I could pick door A, but right now money's too important to ignore.  I'm in a job I don't love, but I live in an area I do love and I recently bought a house.  Ideally I'd be using my degree a little more, creating sociopolitical maps or taking data samples on a coastal engineering/observation station, but for now I have to stick to this job that lets me live in a good place with good salary and benefits.  For now I'm walking through door B, but once I've decided that I'm prepared enough I'll do everything I can to switch it up.

Yeah, that sounds about right.  I don't think I'm going to change my gameplan or expectations.  I'll just do what hunts and find what Espers I come across.  Won't be grinding for postgame superweapons or anything.

Re FF XII stuff: I had heard of the Zodiac Spear and similar stories, but wasn't aware it got that bad! I wasn't planning on doing any endgame or postgame loot hunts to begin with (mostly want to cross the game off my backlog list more than anything), but now I definitely won't.  Out of curiosity, what equipment are you referring to? I have a big license board poster and I'd like to know what I definitely won't be getting.

The fifth chapter is longer than the first four put together.  It's the real meat of the game.  I always liked DQ IV; I hope you enjoy the remainder.

Got my first Esper in FF XII, and I gave it to Balthier.  I kinda felt obligated to since Ashe tricked him into thinking that there was a real treasure in the tomb.  I'm delighted at the numerous similarities to FF Tactics I'm noticing.

When I was a youngun I had Wizards and Warriors down pat and could beat it w/out dying. Now? Can't clear level 1 without cursing my maker.

I feel so ashamed when I "level down" in gaming skill, especially a particular title.  I wonder wtf I did right then.
I hear ya.  When I was maybe 7 years old I could beat Super Castlevania IV on the SNES in about 80 minutes.  Now I don't think I could beat it without using savestates.

Played Cards Against Humanity for almost four straight hours as part of a group of seven.  We ended the game when we ran out of black cards, and we had to reshuffle the white cards twice.

Backlog update. 

Current Backlog
Mass Effect
Grandia II
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
Red Dead Redemption
Star Ocean: Second Evolution
Persona 3 FES

Deathspank: Thongs of Virtue
Final Fantasy XII

Persona 3 and Red Dead Redemption were stellar.  Could go on and on about those two.  Star Ocean 2 was pretty good, but I feel that its plot and environments didn't live up to the fun battle system and skill system. 

Deathspank 2 is basically just like the first one, but a little bigger and better.  I think it'll be the end of my Deathspank career when I beat it, though.  FF XII is solid so far, about 10-11 hours in.

Things moving along quite well in Final Fantasy XII.  I'm ~10 hours in with six party members, I've done a bunch of marks, and I'm about to cross the desert into the tomb of an ancient king.  License Board isn't my favorite thing ever, but the combat is better than I expected and I like the guild framework they use for sidequests (it's totally ubiquitous now, but it still works).  I doubt I'll see this thing through to get every weapon and summon and bounty, but I'll get some decent mileage out of it before the credits roll.

First real "day off from stuff" in weeks.  Gonna go to the gym and then play FF XII for several hours.

Decided to bust out a few older DS games and see where I was.  I forgot how BAD the DS was for online connectivity - some of its games won't recognize internet connections that use WPA keys.  

In other news Devil Survivor is pretty cool.

This past Thursday I downlaoded Kenka Bancho and Hexyz Force on from Atlus's PSN sale.  So far Hexyz Force is really generic but decent.  Only about two or three hours in.  Haven't tried Bancho yet. 

Also, just got back from a wedding, and I received Final Fantasy Dissidia Duodecim as my groomsman gift (which I wasn't aware was a thing).  So sometime this week I'll import my ancient Dissidia save and try out the new charas.

Screwed up my Social Links in Persona 3 FES.  Ending the game with one link at level 9. No way around it.  I'll do a New Game+ eventually.

I was anti-smartphones until my job gave me a Blackberry Torch last year.  Became a key part of inter-office communication very soon after.  A few months later, I received an iPhone as a birthday gift in February earlier this year.  Now I can't live without the motherfuckers.

When I played Revelations: Persona a decade ago I thought it wasn't very good.  Now that I fuckin' love Persona 3 I'm curious about the recent PSP Persona games.  Can anyone honestly recommend them, or should I just stick to the new class of more recent SMT games?

I'm not sure if I can recommend the first Persona for PSP for you. If you hated Revelations, there's no way you'll like the PSP remake. I highly recommend Innocent Sin, however. Great story and characters, but the battle system might be a little archaic for your tastes if you're used to P3 and P4.
I've played every Dragon Quest to completion, so I think I can handle archaic battle systems.  I'll take y'alls recommendations under advisement, but I think I'll borrow a friend's PSP with Persona Uno and Innocent Sin first to see just how I like it.  I know at least two people in my old college gaming club have both.
