The synthiness is definitely the problem with it.  I miss the all the piano from ToCS1's battle music.

I (with the help of my dad) replaced a portion of my shed walls that had gone rotten and was letting animals into my shed.  There's also a heatwave happening right now, so I'm kind of an idiot.  On the plus side, it looks a lot nicer now, and I probably won't have to deal with bird attacks if I have to go in there to get something anymore.

Ooooh I don't like the new standard battle music :(

I agree.  The rest of the music has been fine so far, but damn do I hate the regular battle track.

I think my main reason for disliking it is whatever instrument they used for the intro to the track though.  It sounds kinda piercing and out of place to me, and I like the rest of the track.

Beat Deus Ex: Mankind Divided last night. Very enjoyable, but without a doubt it felt like half a game.  I loved DX:HR and was hoping that the development team would improve upon the stuff I loved about that game. To an extent, they did, but the shortness and shallowness of scope of Mankind Divided made it feel like backstepping instead.

I liked the most recent episodes. I don't particularly agree with the full list, but I appreciated the struggle.  One thing, however, it seemed like you guys were flip-flopping over the general intent of the list. Half the time it was an essential RPG list, but then at times it seemed as though you defaulted into games that were your personal favorites (or ones you didn't like). Speaking from a personal standpoint, if I were to make a list of my ten favorite RPGs and the ten RPGs I felt were essential for anyone to play, I think there would be very few crossovers. As an example, Chrono Trigger would be an essential game to me, but not in my top ten, while Chrono Cross is the exact opposite: it resonates with me personally, but it doesn't seem to have the universal appeal or groundbreakingness that Trigger has..  For similar reasons, I probably wouldn't foist NieR onto an unwitting friend, but in something like a five-year period, no other game came close to offering the same level of enjoyment I had while playing it.

Also, nobody having Suikoden 2 on their list is probably a crime somewhere.

Another reason I feel like I probably won't regret the Vita version is that I didn't even notice any of the performance issues in CS1. I assume despite the report of the slowdown in CS2 being worse, that if I do notice it, it won't bother me as much as someone who's more chiefly concerned with performance.  Also I played through Drakengard 3 and I don't think another game can ever top the chuggs I had to experience in that.

Did you really just defend NJ against the hate it gets by hating on six states at once?

I'd say it was way more than six, but yeah. Irony noted.

For what it's worth, I'm from the greater Philadelphia metropolitan area and we have a rich tradition of hating on things.

On the most recent episode, you guys were mentioning how you'd rather play Trails of Cold Steel 2/3 on PS3/4 instead of Vita. I feel the opposite--I played ToCS 1 on Vita and could barely put it down. It helps that that game basically checks every box for me to enjoy it, but I feel as though having a portable option for good RPGs nowadays feels more rare than I'd like it to.  In general, if an RPG goes multiplatform and has a Vita release, that's the version I will buy.  I love that little system, despite Sony obviously not feeling the same way.

The Jerz

My wife is from New Jersey so I've spent a decent amount of time in various parts of it, and I don't really get all the hate it gets. It's definitely in my top 5 for states, and one of the very few where I think I could live without going insane (too far south and the weather gets gross, I'd feel super isolated in the midwest, New England is terrible, and I've never been to the west coast).  NJ doesn't really have super charismatic cities per-se ('cept maybe Hoboken?) but it always feels like a generally pleasant place to me. Also, the roads are like a billion times better than PA's roads.

I really like this game. It certainly doesn't feel triple-A, and I probably would've preferred to play it on my vita, but I'm very much enjoying it for what it is. I'd say it was $40 well spent for me.

I went ahead and canceled my pre-order. I want to like this game, but I feel like I'll have an easier time doing that if I get it either once the reviews come in or when I can pay a lot less money for it.

On the plus side, I pre-ordered the new South Park RPG in its place!

Finding more grays in my beard (I shave my head) these days... What's with this getting older shit?



I don't much care for Canadian geese, either. If it were legal to run into them, I'd install a sort of cow catcher on my car and go nuts.
EDIT: No, I probably wouldn't. Just realized that could push them up onto the hood. ...I'd just run 'em over normally. BAM!

I find a few new grey hairs every couple of days. None in the beard yet though. It does feel kinda strange.

Geese are the best, although I wouldn't mind if most to all insects disappeared overnight.

It's been 3 years and I still can't believe my lady even talks to me

I've been married to my wife for 3 years and we've been together for 10, and if I think too hard about that my brain starts to hurt out of pure bafflement that she's dealt with me this long.

I mentioned it previously, but I for one am planning on going to MAGFest in 2017, so if you guys did a panel I'd definitely show up.  I've never been to one before, so it'd be nice to have one thing that I'd be especially looking forward to.

Solve this problem by going through the correct channels, if possible. Let your boss know that he made alterations to the schedule without consulting you, and that you can't work that day because you have an engagement that you can't drop.  Be firm that you have unchangeable plans, and hopefully it will be enough to get your boss to intervene and give your coworker a talking to.
