SRW: FMP! Edition.

I was wondering what they were up to given their radio silence. Its kind of amusing given how much love Branpesto has been giving the FMP! series lately.

Another "album of the moment" here.  This one is "Psychotic Symphony" by Sons of Apollo.  I had preordered it earlier this year, got it 2 days ago, and have been listening to it repeatedly since yesterday.  This album is easily my favorite of 2017 now, and it had some stiff competition (the new Darkest Hour and new DragonForce were both stellar).  Anyway, the Sons of Apollo album made me do things I typically never do.  I never roll down the windows and blare the music, but this album made me do that while sometimes shouting "YEAAAHHHH!  SONS OF APOLLO!!!!!!!"  I was banging my head so vigorously at every stoplight during my drive home that I actually feel it today.  I'm sure other motorists were making fun of me for jamming out in my car, but to hell with them.  I hold the smug opinion that because I'm going berserk with reckelss abandon and they're not, my music is easily better than theirs and they wish they were in my state of mind. 

And when you have a band consisting of Mike Portnoy, Derek Sherinian, Billy Sheehan, Jeff Scott Soto, and Bumblefoot there is no way it can't be good.  And it's more than good.  It's magical.  It is very proggy and has some 10 minute plus long songs, but nothing is overwrought or overworked.  It's not just musical masturbation of "hey, look how virtuoso awesome I am!" but a very calculated album that a LOT of thought was put into.  I also like that though it left an explosive first impression, it's also one of those albums that will keep surprising me the more I listen to it. 

My favorite song so far is probably Divine Addiction.  At first I was taken aback that it ended as "suddenly" as it did on a fade when it felt like there was more to do and I was really getting into it... but then I realized its brilliance.  It's just like an addiction where the fix wears off without any real warning and you immediately want another dosage.

Self-regulation ( the ability to monitor and control our own behavior, emotions, or thoughts, altering them in accordance with the demands of the situation) is something I find myself often trying to teach/instill in my special needs students.  A lot of behaviors that are "normal/typical" for us have to be taught to those students, especially how to appropriately express negative emotions.  This can definitely be challenging for someone with a traumatic brain injury that seriously damaged the portion of the part of the brain that instills our self-regulatory functions. 

On the other hand, some of the behaviors I see are a more extreme version of typical.  For example, with autistic students, stimulating behaviors ("stimming") like rocking back and forth or flapping their arms looks off-kilter to us, but we neurotypical folks have to remember that we stim too, be it spinning pencils, twirling our hair, stroking our chins/beards, stuff like that.

So I started Chaos;Child today...oh wow that opening scene was uncomfortable. >.>


I'm going to start .hack which is something I can play for an couple hours after work at a time. I always have to marathon Trails games. Zodiac age will probably be a summer game.
Yay! Speaking of .hack, only two weeks left!

pre-ordered .hack. Currently debating what game to start next: FF12, restart FF15, .hack, Trails 2, or metroid 2 DS. It will probably be .hack which I was thinking of saving until college football season ended however I'll have XBC 2, Ni No Kuni and maybe a Cold Steel game for that.

I want to say "PLAY ZODIAC AGE", but since you're hoping to play a Cold Steel title after fall, might I suggest Trails SC for your main Autumn RPG?

Guncannon is OP. Because it has the deadliest weapon in the entire game: Giant rocks! The natural enemy of Mecha! =P

Seriously, it's a little too agile considering it's only supposed to be mid-rangte support, but then again, so is the Ground Gundam to an extent. It's also funny how the Guncannon II doesn't seem as useful simply because it moves the way you'd expect it to...and doesn't throw boulders at people (seriously, why?)

I just can't figure out how to consistantly boost forward without melee canceling. I had the same problem in Extreme VS, actually. Trying to catch up to an opponent is a chore. The Ground Gundam is also supposed to do a running dash, but I only ever seem to do it on accident...this is why I would've appreciated an actual explanation of gameplay mechanics instead of the lazy intro we got.

Jane Austen novels show more the repression of emotions during the Regency era rather than controlling them, but i guess that's semantics also I'm drunk hi.
