I finally beat Tales of Symphonia, now making it the 2nd Tales game I've played. Overall, I'd say this game is almost great, technically having a story with big scope, decently spread out optional content, gameplay functional characters with none being useless... but it's way too shoddy in execution. I might play Dawn of the New World somewhere towards the end of the year, but for now I think I've had enough Tales. I guess I'll go back to finishing SRW OG and maybe start something else. I was thinking a playthrough of Diablo II + LoD or maybe Fallout 3, but we'll see. It might also be time for a VN, either a real one (Demonbane?) or Ace Attorney 3. I'm not sure why I burnt out on AA last year and wasn't able to finish it then. One thing is for sure is that I'm not going to play another lenghty basic JRPG anyday soon.

Play ace attorney 3. Best game in the series, one of the best games ever made imo.

@Dark Souls

Rang the 2nd bell and started Sen's Fortress.

I am terrible with keeping current with music... At present though I have been routinely listening to some semi-old Vendetta Red on a daily basis and running to the new Babymetal album. Jpop/Jrock interest comes and goes for me, but that Babymetal album kicks ass.

In other news, my dietary excursion a few weeks ago set into motion a destructive pattern as of late. I discovered I can eat foods I am intolerant and/or allergic to so long as I run insane amounts of miles directly after and burn it out of my system at warp speed.... Yesterday was 21 miles post some peanut butter and chocolate. The good news, I had NO allergic reaction save a tummy ache. The bad news...?? I think this qualifies as an eating disorder of some nature. That is, eating foods one is allergic/intolerant of and then purging via exercise.

Man I wouldnt make a habit of that. It wont be much longer before that technique becomes obsolete and you could potentially be inflicting very serious injuries to your body.

I don't even...

So there hasn't been a single Hatsune Miku concert in the US since the one they did at AX in 2011, now all of the sudden she's touring with Lady Gaga.  Which would actually be kind of neat, except tickets for those concerts went on sale months ago so if you wanted to see this for Miku then good luck getting a ticket...


Wth, does this mean Hatsune Miku will sell millions of copies now?

Ahah that's pretty funny.

Wasted the whole day lurking on the internet. Feeling like a turd.
Why do I do this to myself.

Killed the demon, got past  the depths and blighttown lies ahead. I attacked the blacksmith by mistake and now I have to farm souls to absolve my sins... FUCK.

I don't hate people who do it, it's their prerogative, I just think the act of doing it is stupid.
What's the point of having something you have no interest in playing? Idk it's weird, I get your point but at the same time I don't think it applies fully to video games.
There are people out there who are probably interested in playing that game but instead some random hoarder has it in their collection with no intention of touching it.. They can do it sure.. but it doesnt mean that it isn't kind of douchey.

Some people get their enjoyment from different things. I disagree with it not applying to videogames. I think it actually fits pretty well. Some people might want to collect every GBC game or PS1 rpg. I don't have the cash or interest to do something like that but woudn't fault anyone due to it. Still have memories of collecting pokemon stickers as a kid.

It shouldn't be as much an issue anymore due to the large amount of games new and old available as digital downloads (Huge filesizes aside) I have no issue with people like that. They bought the game, it is theirs. Don't really see how it is douchey.

People who buy games in mass to sell at an inflated price do annoy me but you can't really call them collectors.



But those people usually actually want to play the games, not only collect them.
Full system library collectors/ genre collectors have an attachment to said systems/genre and want to have the whole library at their disposal. Im talking specifically about people who only buy to have it.
But yeah I get your point and maybe Im being too harsh but it's just how I feel about the whole ordeal, I wasnt saying they shouldnt be allowed to do it, I just don't think it's "morally" correct.

Yeah those people who collect for collecting sake make me sick..

That seems a bit extreme. It isn't any stranger than collecting stamps or books. I don't collect anything for the sake of collecting myself but wouldn't hate on anyone that does. Although I have a decent sized backlog they are all games I plan to play when I have the time.


Etrian Odyssey Untold

Trying to beat the boss on floor 15. Think I will have to rest Raquna to get Ice Wall to level 5.

I should have phrased that better, it does imply that I hate the people involved but I don't. It's like they have an addiction like smoking or drinking alcohol, I dont hate those people either and hey Im not claiming to be perfect but I also have no problem in admitting when Im doing something stupid.
I don't hate people who do it, it's their prerogative, I just think the act of doing it is stupid. It's just a matter of principles for me, games are meant to be played, they are not meant to be solely exposition pieces.
What's the point of having something you have no interest in playing? Idk it's weird, I get your point but at the same time I don't think it applies fully to video games.
There are people out there who are probably interested in playing that game but instead some random hoarder has it in their collection with no intention of touching it.. They can do it sure.. but it doesnt mean that it isn't kind of douchey. And let's not get started with the "I want this because it's rare and valuable" mentality, I don't have a very pretty opinion on that so I think I'll stay quiet. When games start being treated exclusively as objects, valuables and monetary value that's when you are officially on my douche blacklist.

The act of collecting for collecting sake make me sick..
Games are meant to be played goddamnit. I consider myself a player but I collect as a side effect of the hobby. I like to have physical copies of the games that's all and I also like artbooks and stuff.
Or the buy 10000 games because it's cheap mentality irks me but whatever, each to it's own.

The problem is games, emulators and such.
I think I will use both OS's in the future but as it stands, I don't see a point in switching over.
14  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: April 12, 2014, 02:55:52 PM
I would switch to Linux if it had more program compatibilty. Maybe as a secondary OS when I build myself a top end desktop.

@Yggdrasil - I was still very early into the game, those were a lot of souls at the time, it equated to 3 levels, if you read the 2nd log entry I already don't care about losing souls because I realized it's not that big of a deal.

Journal entry nº3

Ok so Im starting to get pro.
There was this freak in the basement of the blacksmith and I killed it, it took me a few tries but I did it, it helped a ton in practicing rolling, I could have disposed of it with a crossbow but that feels like cheating so I didnt.
Killed the Gargoyles in 3 tries, had this lightning element thing that I discovered, put it in my +5 battle axe and disposed of them in a few hits, I had no idea they were vulnerable to lightning, it was a lucky guess. Rang the bell, saved and turned it off for now
I got this badass Helm from the gargoyles and I killed all the special enemies I found so far.
I discovered that rolling is much more important thatn parry and dodge so I am beginning to master that, Im dieing less and each time I die it feels less frustrating and more addictive than ever.  Im completely hooked.
I have been raising strength, endurance and vitality exclusively up until this point.

I don't know how important faith and intelligence are, Im focusing on a melee character so I have been ignoring those stats. However I joined this covenant that sells "miracles" and they require me to level up faith.. is it worth it?
Are these "miracles" even necessary?
