Started Phantasy Star III. God that game aged atrociously...
IV seems to be the first PS to not look atrocious from the look of III (only ever played IV up to now).

I'm following a walkthrough because otherwise, I have zero idea what I need to do.
I do like that the dungeons up to now are fairly short. So it's not that bad to navigate them even with no map.

I found the in-game overworld maps in PSIII to be horribly inaccurate, although I did like the family generation system.

Finished The Wrong Girl, a Victorian paranormal fantasy novel about a girl locked in her home's attic by her earl father until Jack, a fire-conjurer, breaks her out and takes her to a place called the Freak House. Enjoyable, and I tend to prefer books written in the first person.

Still working on the Dirk Pitt novels by Clive Cussler as well, and am on the tenth one.

Bravely Default - In Chapter 8 and have had to fight the same bosses before the four crystals over and over during the past few chapters. Thumbs down, for certain, but I'll still beat the game.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years (iOS) - On Ceodore's Tale, after the airship crashes. The graphics could use some work and the music is recycled or nonexistent, but I'm otherwise having a decent time, and Auto-Battle is definitely a godsend.

Riviera: The Promised Land (PSP) - Beat this this afternoon and had a decent time with the game.

Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World (PS3) - I'm on Chapter 4 I think, and have Regal in my party. Some of the bosses have been tough but I'm having a decent time.

Read The Silla Project by John C. Brewer, a fairly engaging book about an American scientist wrongfully convicted and imprisoned but broken out by North Koreans and brought to their homeland to make nuclear weapons. I'm also working on the Dirt Pitt novels by Clive Cussler and have fairly enjoyed them.

Saw the latest Transformers film today. Pretty much on par with its predecessors.

The repeated boss fights towards the end are certainly off-putting, for certain, and it's at that point that the game has somewhat jumped the shark for me, but I'll still finish it.

I'm definitely having a blast with this game, and have done well with a party of two physical attackers and two magicians. Definitely a good spiritual successor to Final Fantasy V.

Finished reading the Space Odyssey series by Arthur C. Clarke. I somewhat enjoyed the novelization of 2001 and 2010, but 2061 and 3001 didn't stick well with me.

Watched the film pilot to the Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV series, which I found on par with the other films in the series, then again I don't think any of the Star Wars films are masterpieces, original or prequel trilogy, since I find all the films to be full of plot holes (for instance, in Empire Strikes Back, "We are fleeing into outer space with literally infinite directions to flee, however, we have decided we'll fly directly towards the fleet of Star Destroyers"), and shitty decision-making (like the Empire's refusal to shoot at the supposedly-empty escape pod with Artoo and Threepio in A New Hope, which would have prevented all events in the original trilogy). Lucas has a great imagination but isn't a very good writer, even with the help of people like Lawrence Kasdan.

The thing that bothered me with Lost Odyssey was that battles were both long and horribly frequent.

At least with Persona 2 you could just spam fusion spells and have the battle over in at most 2 turns.

Too bad you have to use a guide to actually find fusion spells. Sorry, to me that's a sign of shitty game design.

Did a marathon reading all the Saga of Darren Shan books, and was very much satisfied with the series.

Recently reread the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini. A little derivative but half-decent nonetheless.

Bravely Default - I'm at the Command Center tower in Eternia, and I've pretty much managed to get away without switching classes for the game (I've mostly been using monk, white mage, black mage, and knight, although I've switched the last one to pirate recently).

Riviera: The Promised Land (PSP) - I'm somewhat pissed that I spent about an hour or so grinding to take on the boss of the submerged ruins and accidentally quit the game (since the quit screen for some reason randomly pops up on my PSP, which is a few years old), but I managed to get past the dungeon and have all available weapons mastered.

Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World (PS3) - About an hour in and I've learned the basics of battle, which should be interesting throughout the game. I can live without an explorable world map since they tend to be unrealistic anyway, although the main hero is sort of whiny.

if that copy of Dawn of Sorrow I just bought was yours, I thank you kindly.

No problem ^_~

The more recent Mana titles haven't been great, so I can't say I'm excited.
