I finished the Magicans books. Sort of border on literary nonsense, but they weren't total writeoffs.

Finally finished Tokyo Xanadu on my Vita. Good game, but I'm glad to get it over with.

Right now I'm dividing time between The Magicians series by Lev Grossman and James Dashner's Maze Runner books, since the TV series of the former returns next month and The Death Cure comes out later in January. I've just started The Magicians and as I've felt before it's kind of like an adult Chronicles of Narnia, and I've read both prequels to The Maze Runner, which I enjoyed as well.

I watched all four seasons (or parts, as they're termed on Netflix) of Soul Eater. Reminded me a little of Tales of Destiny with weapons having personality, like Excalibur having a somewhat-cute anthropomorphic form.

Don't think I've mentioned it before, but I beat Metroid: Samus Returns earlier this December. Was fairly enjoyable, though they give a disproportionate amount of regular missile upgrades compared to others such as life.

Still messing around in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Also started Resonance of Fate on my PS3. Has a hell of a learning curve, as I spent the first hour messing with tutorials, but it definitely shows promise.

Working on Proud Mode missions in Kingdom Hearts Union Cross.

Haven't made much progress in Tokyo Xanadu, though I'm near the end of the main chapters. Don't know if I'll do the epilogue.

WA2 has a Personal Skill that recovers HP when one's Force Points go up, which can lead to situations where enemies actually heal you when attacking, so yeah, you can definitely break the game's balance.

Still messing around in Dragon Age: Inquistion. Have advanced the main plot a few times, and I haven't had any real trouble.

I'm reading War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy given its alleged influence on authors like Robert Jordan, and it feels sort of like a Tom Clancy novel (though I've only read Clancy's Red Storm Rising), which definitely isn't a bad thing. The short chapters make it more digestible in bites, as well.

Still dicking around in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Think I'm at the last dungeon in Tokyo Xanadu. Glad my Vita's power didn't crap out during the long cutscene that precedes said dungeon.

Working on Proud Mode missions in Kingdom Hearts Union Cross.

I didn't care much for the Hands of Time puzzles and had to use a certain website to solve them.

Still dicking around in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Got close to beating a dragon in the plains area, but ran out of potions and eventually, life.

Still dicking around in Dragon Age: Inquisition. I'm looking for shards so I can unlock doors in some tomb in the desert.

There are definitely other RPGs that do encounter systems better than the FF13 series.

Right now I'm juggling the Barsoom books and the Sixes Wild series by Tempe O'Kun (furry literature). Since the speech function on my iPad somewhat locked it up I've resorted to minimizing the text size so I can preview the text and take notes before reading each page, and it's still worked more than maxing the font, since that made it easy to get lost in a plot.

Could be due to the forum window taking up much more browser width than before, at least from my perspective.

I got close to the end of Metroid: Samus Returns and Tokyo Xanadu on my vacation, but fell a tad short of beating them. Samus Returns sort of gives too many regular missile upgrades, since I never ran out of them, and sometimes too few energy upgrades, but the difficulty is manageable if you track enemy patterns. I've been having a blast with Tokyo Xanadu, but don't care much for the story.

RPGFan: Site / RPGFan Articles and the Serial Misuse of Its/It's/Its'
« on: November 21, 2017, 12:52:46 PM »
I couldn't help but notice that the staffers of RPGFan seem to have a problem with regards to the use of the words it's and its, namely in this article:

http://www.rpgfan.com/news/2017/6957.html

"It's" is a contraction of "it is" and "its" is the possessive of "it."

It's probably my fault for not applying to the proofing job advertised a while back, but you can guarantee that if you ever open again, I will apply.
