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.

John is absolutely right.  Now, if they release on PC and only PC, then you'd have a problem.  With PSN it's just like switching out UMDs, except without the UMDs.

For me it's definitely The Big Hit starring Mark Wahlberg, Lou Diamond Philips, and China Chow.  It's so awful that it's awesome.  Me and three friends all saw it the weekend before we started high school (after elementary and middle school together, the four of us were being split between three different places) and oh man was it good/bad.

Travis Baldree and Max "that's my hammer" Schaeffer of RunicGames are showing off a new trailer for TL2 and announcing the release date at PAX in about 30 minutes. A few outlets have leaked that release date, saying it's September 20th. If that's wrong, feel free to call me out on it and call me a jerkbutt. If I'm right...  &*^$ YES THREE WEEKS!!!

(sorry for the double post. I know that dp can be annoying)

Bytor where do you live? That generic ass stripmall looks familiar.


Every fucking suburb in america looks like that
No kidding. You could have told me that's the BB&B closest to where I grew up in Virginia and I'd have believed you.

Haven't made much progress in Twilight Princess, but I've made it up to Ilia in FE6.  Lance is only at level 7 promoted and has already hit a few caps.  Lilina's Speed is non-shit, so she is even more effective than my pretty-good Lugh.  Geese wasn't getting decent growths, but Gonzales turned out great (with help from a Secret Book or two) and is my best axe user.  MVPs so far are Dieck, Lilina, and Lance, with Gonzo catching up in a big way. 

Also want to start a PS3 run soon.  Thinking either Valkyria Chronicles or 3D Dot Game Heroes.  Probably fire it up next week.

I watched four episodes of Kuroko, then wrote an impossibly nerdy article trying to figure out who would win in a match between Shohoku and Seirin: blog post link.
