It does suck that I won't get to make Ramza a dark knight though.

Sadly, the grind to dark knight is ridiculous. You have to master two jobs, get four others to level 8, and kill (i.e. crystallize) 20 enemies. Even using spill over JP as much as possible, I'm still nowhere close and I'm about to fight Adrammelech. *sigh*

Oh I remember the grind. I beat the PSP version about six or so years ago (I think before OG FFT was available on the PSN) but I guess I'm just less patient with the slowdown. I still think Dark Knight is the perfect class for Ramza though.

I also have terrible pack luck.  I have a friend, however, who got Alexstrasza on his second pack, and has since gotten something like four other rad legendaries from packs after like four months of playing.  The only time I've gotten good legendaries from packs (Thalnos, and then Alexstrasza) he was either in the room with me or spectating me. It's insane.

I'm actually thinking about dropping the $50 on the pre-order packs for Grand Tournament so I can mess around with deckbuilding. It might be a decent time to rise up in the ladder if I can throw a good deck together.

I loved the Last Story, with the single exception of I hated playing it on the Wii. I'd probably re-buy it if it ever got a New 3DS rerelease for some reason.

I've started up a game of FF Tactics thanks to listening to the most recent retro encounter, but I have what seems like a less popular opinion about it, in that I really don't care for the PSP version.  I tried starting up a new game on the PSP version but the slowdown got old like three battles in and I switched to the original flavor PS1 version, which I definitely prefer.  It does suck that I won't get to make Ramza a dark knight though.

I wish I liked festivals--I'm too introverted and I can't dance. I enjoy music but I always want to leave early when I do something like go to a concert. I guess I'm more the type to listen to my preferred music at home alone.

On the other hand, I love camping, but I prefer camping at Knoebels in Elysburg because I like the combination of camping and amusement park!

It is hot as balls in Pennsylvania and I hate hate hate summer so much and I forget every damn year. :(

We have upgraded from one air conditioner to two, and it's still too hot.

The camping festival I talked about in my last post was in Milton PA, right by the Susquehanna river.  When it wasn't storming, the heat was brutal. 

Which campground in Milton? My parents are currently working at the Yogi Bear one.

Does anybody on here besides me still play this?  I'm on pretty much every day doing quests and trying poorly to move up on the ladder!

I am in three games of D&D right now and (obviously) enjoy it quite a bit.  I play one game with my wife and my housemate and two other friends that has been going on for a year following the conclusion of our almost 2 year Vampire: The Masquerade campaign. This is a D&D 3.5 campaign and is the most story heavy.  I play an Orc (statwise a half orc, but in a world where orcs are more druid-y and not really dumb and savage) duskblade, currently at level 20.

I'm also playing a game with my wife and her friends that started in 4th edition and has since moved to 5th where I am playing a level 5 human Storm Sorcerer.  This is the most dungeon-crawly campaign, and story wise it's modern and post-apocalyptic and I am really enjoying that setting along with the 5th edition rules.  I personally do not like 4th edition and was probably the driving force behind the switch to 5th, but so far it seems to have gone very smoothly and everyone seems to be enjoying the new mechanics.

The last game I'm in is a straight from-the-books adventure in 5th edition: Tyranny of Dragons, that I'm in with friends from college.  I am playing a level 4 Rogue that is going to multiclass into a Warlock, and he is basically a con artist.  This is definitely the silliest game I'm in, and I'm pretty sure none of the party members are good (mostly neutral, one evil) so we get into sometimes hilarious shenanigans.

I've never played any long campaigns online, though, as all of these are done in-person, which I think I'd definitely prefer.  The downside is that it is pretty time intensive being in three campaigns (two of which are bi-weekly and one which is weekly) as it means I usually have to reserve two evenings a week for roleplaying.  I still think it's worth it, though, and it lets me stay current with a bunch of different friends that I otherwise wouldn't see as often.

Am I the only person who really, really hated Gambits? I get why direct control of all party members in XII would have been impractical, but it still irks me that instead I had to rely on a bunch of if/thens.  I also really didn't like the battle system or AI control in XIII.  For me, FFVII with the battle system from FFX would be perfect (but I also see why some people would hate that even more than I hate Gambits)

Pics or it didn't happen.

Well since you asked...

Edit: Oh god, I was doing just fine when I left the oral surgeon but now they painkillers they gave me there are starting to wear off.  It hurts, it hurts!!

What up dental implant buddy!

I hope you're feeling better today, keep taking your motrin or whatever they gave you and don't fuck around with your stitches.  From my experience, I healed surprisingly fast.

Is this real life?

I thought that the narration in the trailer was referring to how people wanted a FFVII remake but didn't think it would happen, and it was just being cheeky about it.
