Tales of Xillia - I'm at the Sapstrath Seahaven, roughly 4-5 hours in. I have to say Graces F has ruined every other Tales game for me, because while I am enjoying the battle system in Xillia...it's still not Graces F's battle system.

For a character that fights with his fists, Jude is pretty good and I'm glad that he can heal without wasting a lot of TP, but I had more fun playing with Legendia's Senel.

I'm downloading Tales of Xillia through the PS Store for $20. I played the Japanese version back in 2011, but got stuck because I couldn't understand enough to proceed. I never really had that problem with Graces F, because I have 30 hours invested in the JP version of Graces F. Now with the English version, I can proceed with a lot less dicking around.

Mesh, didn't you major in Russian or something like that?

My interest in languages was too strong to the point where I was studying Korean, Japanese and Chinese at the same time...so I had to just back off of my two weakest languages and just stick to Korean for now so that I didn't burn out. Now I don't feel like learning Korean is a major burden anymore and have more time for other hobbies again.

Wow, I didn't know other people here used Anki. I mainly use it to study Korean grammar points, as I dislike using Anki for vocab. I may use Anki just to maintain my knowledge in Japanese and Mandarin even though I'm not actively studying either language.

Yeah, the Xbone is pretty useless as far as being an RPG machine goes, because any RPGs it will get will also be available for PC, and what few exclusive RPGs it will get probably won't warrant a purchase of the system unless you want exclusives from other genres.

Been playing some of my PS2 backlog on my fat PS3 before it kicks the bucket, because I'm sure I'll have to buy some of these through the PS store if I want to play them in the future. I'll have to do that with some PSP games eventually since my PSP died last year. The fans are getting real loud, so I've been trying to clean the PS3 as much as possible and putting it on it's side so that it gets better ventilation, but I know this is only extending its life, not fixing the actual problem. Thankfully PS3 slims are much more affordable now. I'm also waiting for a few PS3 games to become cheaper so that I can buy those too, such as the English versions of Tales of Graces F, Xillia and Xillia 2 when it comes out. My Japanese comprehension has deteriorated in the past couple of years, so it's really hard for me to make any progress in the Japanese games that I own.

The main game I have been playing is Digital Devil Saga. I'm at Coordinate 136 right now and I just got there, so I definitely plan to do a little grinding so as to master some mantras now. I also need to even Serph's stats out a little bit. Most FAQs are saying they should be even, but I've poured everything into Magic and a few points into vitality. I guess my playthrough of Devil Survivor/DS2 has influenced the extremely imbalanced stat distribution.

I'm also going through a bit of my GBA and DS backlog, trying to clear some games before I eventually get a 3DS and Vita (I doubt the 3DS will get any cheaper, and I'm not buying that ugly piece of shit called the 2DS), so it's just about saving up some money. Luckily I'll have plenty of games to choose from since I took about a 5 year break from heavy gaming (just did some here and there, like playing Persona 4 and a bit of Tales of Graces F back in 2010/2011.)

Since there isn't an Olympics thread, I just want to say that I'm livid that Kim Yuna got robbed.

I'm definitely buying this day one. I have been waiting for this game for what seems like forever now.

I liked LinkedIn. I don't use it a lot, but I made an account last year because it is helpful in trying to find a job. Depending on which industry you're in/trying to go in, LinkedIn will have a different use. I was a finance major in university, and almost everyone in the business school had a LinkedIn profile.

Some people are so horrid. Ugh. My little sister has her first job in KFC, and she's doing really well there. I thought I would go see her and get a cup of tea while she was working. She told me she had the worst day yesterday because she accidentaly spilled some coffee on a woman, and the woman later rang up and complained about her, saying that my sister spilled it on purpose and that she was flicking pennies at her.

I know it's impossible for you guys to know, but my sister is the kindest, gentlest person on Earth. It is completely outside of her nature to do something like that. When I was a waiter in a hotel I accidentaly spilled coffee on a woman, so I know how awful that makes you feel, but at least i wasn't complained about and then lied about. Fucking assholes.

As Edea would say, mrgrgr...

I almost got fired from my first job because I wouldn't take shit from customers. I really hate the "customer is king" philosophy, because the "customer is a puckering asshole" is more apt.

For 2013, Chihayafuru 2 was the best series for me. I couldn't finish any other series I attempted to watch, so it was easy for it to be my #1.

So a couple of weeks ago I was trying to replay Valkyria Chronicles for the umpteenth time, and while I have tried loving this game because it was the direction I wanted to see SRPGs take, I just have resigned myself to admitting that I will always suck ass at this game and move on to the other games I bought and haven't really put much time into.

Not necessarily anime, but somewhat relevant to it:

Live Action Kiki's Delivery Service Trailer!

Only quoting you because Hyomin [the girl in the gif] is such a qt3.14.

In a few hours, I'm taking the final final that I will ever final as an undergrad...and I'm here instead of studying. It's one of those tests where I only need a 70% on to pass with an A- haha, so I'm trying not to get too worked up and anxious over it when I go over my final cramming session in a little bit to hone in on the sections that I don't know as well as the others.

I'm sure the West will see the new game in 2015. Namco Bandai will probably think along the lines of "Well, we gave these fucks Xillia 2 and Symphonia HD this year [2014], so I hope they stop whining for a little bit."
