Looks like I may have to call in sick on Thursday.

I got up super early this morning and couldn't go back to sleep (~4am) so I did a few chapters of FE6. Beat Zephiel and unlocked the new chapters (which I didn't do the first time I played). Settled into a top 10 of Roy (SWORD OF SEALS), Lance, Dieck, Thany, Lugh, Lilina, Shin, Fir, Gonzo, and Miledy. Early MVPs were Lance and Dieck, more recently it's probably been Miledy, who is both a very good offensive flier AND my only trained character with Def above 20. She's great.

So am I gonna be the only one throwing it down as a steampunk Iron Man or a demon dust wizard while everyone else is playing Borderlands 2 or Guild Wars 2?  Come on, there's another awesome RPG 2-sequel coming out in August/September!

Wasn't really clear from my previous post, but I ****ing loved Origins, thought Awakening was pretty good, and DA2 was alternately awesome and disappointing.  The whole finale?  Awesome.  The lack of choice in certain outcomes and scenarios?  Disappointing.  The more console-friendly combat and new skill trees?  Awesome.  The re-used maps and battlegrounds?  Disappointing.  The dialog, characters, and Friendship/Rivalry?  Awesome.  The lack of armor custoimzation?  Disappointing. 

Overall, I liked DA2 a lot, but had weird, specific gripes.  I was far from enraged, and I want to play it again with some DLC added, but I dunno if I want to do that right the hell now.  Cautiously optimistic, gonna wait and see.

Part of my wants to buy a bunch of DLC, then replay Origins, Awakening and DA2.  Another part of me wants to just work through more backlog and save money.  Decisions, decisions....

The only BoF games I've played are 2 and 3, and I thought both were really good.  BoF 4 is a major missing piece of my PS1 RPG collection and I'm debating whether I should buy it on PSN or not.

The one thing I didn't like about BoF 2 and BoF 3 (other than its difficulty and bad dungeon slogs) were their weird, esoteric methods for getting a few of the secrets.  I don't remember exactly, but for the Earth Shaman in BoF 2 aren't you supposed to clear out a field of enemies without using magic and donating 20 times to a church or something?  And in BoF 3 I think I probably only got about 60% of the available Masters and battle formations by the midgame, even though I was pretty diligent in exploring.  For the record, I beat BoF2 via emulator several years ago, and haven't beaten BoF3 but I have a 20+ hour savefile on one of my memory cards.

And as for Bleu in BoF 2, the best part about her wasn't her magic (which is pretty good), but the fact that she's great without using any Shamans.  Just about every other character needs a specific Shaman combination to reach their full potential, and Bleu welcomely frees up Shaman slots.  Without using Bleu, the only obvious setup that lets you use transformed versions of three characters is Rand+Katt+Nina; that's a really good team, but maybe not the team everyone wants....  

EDIT: heh, reading this made me research some old BoF stuff, and I found this picture of BoF 2's six Shamans:

I swear to god, if I hear the lilting coo of ONE MORE GODDAMN SAPIENT SKY CHICKEN... I just might snap. 

...beat City in the Sky, now looking around for a Piece of Heart since I have 4/5, then I'll go fix the big mirror.  Woo comma splices!

Norte Dame is joining the ACC. What. The. Fuck.

Just got to the City in the Sky in Zelda: Twilight Princess. Best three dungeons over the weekend after a long hiatus. Gonna try and finish the game this week - I'm almost done, right?

Once at a party myself and two others argued as to what's better, The Craft or Teen Witch.  We ended up agreeing that 95% of The Craft is better than 95% of Teen Witch, but this one scene of Teen Witch gives it the overall victory: Top That.  Pure 90s-guilty-pleasure gold.

I've only played the first ZX.  If you play it without trying to get the boss rewards undamaged, it's easy.  If you do the "avoid the weak point" bit for the best rewards, then holy Shinto those boss fights get frustrating.

Duke University might get their 2010 basketball championship revoked, or at the very least force the NCAA to take a stand on their questionable policies: link to article

I went to an ACC school other than Duke, so I'm mostly a Duke hater.  I was rooting for Butler in that title game.  Still, even if Duke doesn't lose their title, this is a big fuckin' deal for the NCAA, because this is a major school potentially in violation of policy.  I'm interested to see how this turns out.

I always thought X5 was a little underrated.  It has a lot of bullshit trappings surrounding it (countdown nonsense, no X4 armor if you pick Zero for stage 1, silly Guns n Roses translated names) but its action is pretty good and it looks fantastic if you compare it to X6 or X7.  I still think X5 and X3 are the weakest of the first five X games, but then again I love the first five X games. 

Played more Fuuin no Tsurugi today.  Picked up Forblaze and recruited Sophia, Cecilia, Miledy, Perceval, Igrene, Fa, Garret, and probably someone else I'm forgetting.  I think the only new units I'll end up using are Miledy (she had GREAT levels after I started using her and she's at level 18 unpromoted) and I guess Fa.

For our Labor Day cookout last night we made Yoda Soda - Hypnotiq, Hennessy, and Mountain Dew.  We made enough for almost 3 full pitchers, and it was gone in under 45 minutes.
