Well time for a decent-sized update.

Recently did the Tour of Gustaberg quest. I had to delevel my BST from level 6 to 5, but I'm glad I got this quest done before I had no chance in hell of doing it.

My chocobo grew to adolescence, and unfortunately it has white tailfeathers, meaning it will grow to be a yellow chocobo. Snore. Someone has supplied me with a black male chococard so perhaps I can breed the two and get an interesting color next time...

Sky this weekend was pretty uneventful, we wanted to do Kirin but we didn't have enough people. I got a shiny new helm for my...uh...level 30 PLD?

Also bought myself a little treat I've wanted for quite some time now:

But the biggest thing that's been happening is CoP. I'm excited as hell because today I did the first mission advancement in CoP i've done in like, a year and a half.

'twas a really tough fight, but honestly it was a lot more annoying just to get there thanks to several members who came along to "help" us decided to randomly pop NMs without saying anything and going off to kill Carmine Dobsonflies. Of course, I suppose I can't complain since I walked away with this little gem:

CoP's story is getting real interesting, personally so far I already find it more interesting than RoZ and ToAU combined. RoZ's story was a snore, and ToAU's was filled with lots of meaningless exposition. This one seems to have more interesting characters and stories for characters we've already grown to know.

Next week: Diabolos!

Just got it today, got through the 8 bosses in about an hour of recorded playtime. Actual playtime was probably more like 2 hours, for the few times I reset the game. Pretty brutal difficulty level, though the bosses are embarrassingly easy. The weapons are actually useful this time around, without being broken like Metal Blade. Jewel Satellite comes pretty close, though.

Great game, definately worth the $10.

As for Roll costume...maybe if Capcom hears all these hopes that people wanted to play as Roll for some dumb reason they'll put it in as a bonus later. :P For now, I guess you should be satisfied playing as her on Powered Up.

Well I finally started doing some stuff in CoP with Cymmina, Mercilessturtle and Levit. It's not the mission I'm on, but it was pretty fun.

Piece of cake. Mortal Ray gives you heart attacks when Cursna doesn't land the first time but it turned out fine. :P

Onward to the library!

I'm not sure if it's because I played Rhapsody a long, long time ago, but I remember Cornet being one of the few female characters in a JRPG that I could actually not only tolerate, but find likable. Battle system was irritating if you didn't level up enough, I ended up getting stuck in a dungeon for like an hour and forty-five minutes and then got a GAME OVER. Not fun.

I agree wholeheartedly with everything you say about The Simpsons and their recent episodes, but I still personally prefer them over Family Guy episodes because they're a lot more coherent (which isn't saying a lot), and I guess I probably just have a bias because the characters are just more diverse to begin with. Really, while Family Guy has its good moments, I've never felt that its writing is humor at all- it's just awkwardness to forcibly squeeze laughs out of the audience. ANYBODY could write that. Family Guy's humor is about the same level as the Genre Movie series for me, except Family Guy is actually tolerable because it's on TV rather than making me pay $8 a view.

I still like The Simpsons more even as far as humor goes, but the show hasn't had good, unforced character moments for years, including the movie.
1791  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Need some recommendation for incredibly simple games on: September 30, 2008, 04:29:08 AM
Not sure if this should go in the helper monkey or here, but yeah, I need some really simple games to be able to play with some really small kids. I guess Atari-like games where there's only one button would be the best thing, since they can't seem to figure out games like Megaman or even Mario for that matter. Flashy lights and ADD-high preferred, because you know kids love that stuff.

Also maybe I'll play them if I get brain damage in the next few months I suppose.
1792  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Oh man, The Simpsons hits the twenty year mark tonight. on: September 29, 2008, 04:59:37 PM
I feel that while Family Guy and American Dad both have good moments, I think most people would agree with me that's it's not going to leave a mark anywhere near as big as The Simpsons has. I do think that The Simpsons has become weaker over the years, but I still think its superior to at least those other two shows simply for the characters (Guess Dincrest explains it much better than I do). I haven't seen many American Dad episodes but Family Guy just tends to annoy me.

But on topic, how was the episode? I have no idea if I could even access The Simpsons here outside of DVDs. :P
1793  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Oh man, The Simpsons hits the twenty year mark tonight. on: September 28, 2008, 10:47:53 PM
Even if it may've worn out its welcome I'd still rather watch it than almost any other animated sitcom

Amen. It boggles my mind why everyone thinks Family Guy is funny.
1794  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Rumor: Mega Man 9 being made on: September 26, 2008, 10:54:50 PM
Kinda lame that harder difficulty levels are something you have to pay for.

Man, I've been listening to the stage music on youtube and stuff...I'm pumped and ready for this game. It can't come out on XBL any sooner. =P
1795  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: September 25, 2008, 07:14:53 AM
I /search you every time I get on...I can never seem to catch you on, heh.

Anyway, got MNK to level 21. Named my chocobo in true FFXI alliteration fashion- GrueneGingembre. Yeah, it's in one word like that, kind of annoying that they do that.

I don't think it's possible to literally "read your thoughts"- so i don't think you need to worry about that. And as far as ethics go, this really is no different from people listening in on your private phone calls.
1797  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: World's Most Disgusting Apartment! on: September 24, 2008, 05:20:33 AM
I'm still more amused by the beer can house. :P
1798  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Mind-reading technology on: September 24, 2008, 12:48:58 AM
And why implement pheromone detection in the first place?

Chemical signals given by the body can potentially tell people monitoring some supporting evidence they might need to accuse people of being a terrorist. And god only knows how much evidence you need from an unreliable scan like this to get anyone to believe you.

In some way, I'm actually looking forward to seeing it only because he's taking it so damn seriously. :P

Been working on MNK a bit recently. Level 16 atm. You should let me play with you sometime Parn. :P

 Not much to say about my chocobo, still trying to decide on a name.

I want to use my assault tags for something, they've been rotting for a while now, and it'd be nice to do some assaults, Nyzul or not- though it'd be nice to get myself a Nyzul katana so I can learn Blade: Kamu.

Then again, I don't think I want to go get 5250 WS points or whatever the hell was required.
