I just got some devastating news.  My mom was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.  Yeah...

My uncle suffered with it for years (her older brother).  He passed away back in May of a heart attack, though.  

Looks like I need to find some more Bike-a-thons to ride in the future.  I definitely want to do the cancer ride every year, but I'm also looking for a Parkinson's ride (for my mom and uncle; I think there is a Philly based one), and a diabetes ride (it runs in my family, my dad has it).  

I figure, a bicycle was the biggest agent of change in my life, so I can use that vehicle as an agent of change for other peoples' lives.  

That is really shitty. Sorry dude. :(

The first Grandia.

Ni No Kuni is a good idea as well.

So I've been saving my vacation days all year, after I applied to Teacher's College in case I needed to leave my job early.

Now work is saying I'm not allowed to use them, I should have used them before and that if I leave before the end of my contract, I lose my bonus pay (one month's salary) and my ticket home.

So today I booked a ticket to Tokyo for the 23rd where I will stay for one night, crash with a buddy, see a high school friend who had a baby last year, buy some video games (Fatal Frame Wii!) and go home Sunday evening.

I will arrive Sunday afternoon in Canada.

I will start school the next day. I don't get to move into my apartment until September 1st.

This is a total clusterfuck.

So after finally figuring out what I needed, I got Anima and the Magus Sisters which made the end of the game a cakewalk. I had completely forgotten that Jecht basically turns into Heihachi's dad from Tekken.

Started X-2 and it's making me cringe just as much as the first time I saw it.

Er... you don't need the destruction sphere itself. You need to use the destruction sphere in each temple to find that temple's hidden chest.

Yeah I realise that now.

And I agree with Dice. I find it hard to do serious grindfests anymore.

More than anything I hate playing a game and accomplishing nothing.
Grinding is irritating but when I'm literally just trying to finish the same battle for hours on end, it is maddening.

The only reason I put the time in today is there's a typhoon outside and I'm not going anywhere.

I finally got it, only to discover I wasn't missing that sphere.

I thought I was missing the zanarkand one but every time I leave the temple, the sphere stays behind.

I don't know whether I'm doing something wrong or it's a bug.

I've spent all day trying to get these extra summons and now it seems like I'm not going to get them because I didn't play through with a faq in my lap - which is what I hesr I have to do for X-2.

I'm incredibly frustrated at this point at the whole stupid rigamarole.

Anyone have a tip for getting Yojimbo to do Zanmotto against dark valefor?

I can't get him to do it no matter how much money I give him.

I saw Snowpiercer here in korea. I enjoyed it and thought it was really interesting.
It's definitely something different.

Saw GOTG last night. I agree with StarlordMongoose.
It was a fun movie but was not the best movie Marvel has done.
I enjoyed it though and it has a couple of cool cameos.

Howard the Duck!!!

Kind of, but it needs to be an RPG and not a puzzle game.

November's Doom - Bled White

The new album is excellent. If you are a Dan Swano fan, check it out.

Maybe cause I am older and tired of the narrative predominately involving  15-17 year olds. I think older characters like ones from Persona 2: Eternal Punishment,  Digital Devil Saga or Catherine would be fresh change of pace.

P1 was high school
P2 was adults
P3/4 were high school

You're right, it's time to flip back.

It's not going to happen with the new format of RPG/dating sim though.

I watched some G-Force/Battle of the Planets today for the first time since I was a kid.

Holy christ, it is *terrible*.

Can't you use the classic controller with them?

Still needs a Wiimote, though. Yeah, you can't use the Gamepad for Wii games, unfortunately. Not even the Wii menu. Maybe someday they'll update it, but I don't see it happening anytime soon...

Yeah, sorry, I meant the Gamecube controller and got my terms mixed up.

This guy.

Joss writes outstanding dialogue and understands that plot doesn't matter without character. Even in some of his works I haven't enjoyed, at the very least he actually has characters with personalities that are developed through actual development and not 'plot has decided this character must now do this thing'

Also Joss had less to do with Alien Resurrection than you want to believe. Plus that movie was going to blow anyway. Much like the upcoming Turtles film which insists on making them horrifyingly human.

The problem is that he sacrifices the plot for dialogue and banter.

And he seems fully willing to take the credit for success but equally willing to pass the buck when something doesn't.
