I am terrible with keeping current with music... At present though I have been routinely listening to some semi-old Vendetta Red on a daily basis and running to the new Babymetal album. Jpop/Jrock interest comes and goes for me, but that Babymetal album kicks ass.

In other news, my dietary excursion a few weeks ago set into motion a destructive pattern as of late. I discovered I can eat foods I am intolerant and/or allergic to so long as I run insane amounts of miles directly after and burn it out of my system at warp speed.... Yesterday was 21 miles post some peanut butter and chocolate. The good news, I had NO allergic reaction save a tummy ache. The bad news...?? I think this qualifies as an eating disorder of some nature. That is, eating foods one is allergic/intolerant of and then purging via exercise.

Bastion/ Xbox controller on the fritz... halting progress.

Atelier Escha and Logy/ Life on the fritz... halting progress... slag graveyard was cool though.

Getting back to my RETRO GAMING WEEKEND!!! Yes, indeed. It needed to happen. Without scheduled time to enjoy the titles of yesteryear, I clearly can't seem to incorporate them in my gaming routine. And so I will reinstate, my highly regimented routine of playing nothing but retro games on the weekend.

To kick it off I was torn. I have wanted to play-through both Terranigma and Romancing Saga 3 for years. I think I am going to move into Terranigma first because I am really feeling something a wee-bit more action oriented.

In other news, upon joining the Raptr community due to being jealous of Blace's awesome cross-platform consolidated sig, I have been trying to get my profile up to date. I made mention of this a few days ago in the haps thread. Well, to my dismay, updating hours on Raptr happens in real time.... to add insult to injury, it seems to cap manually tracked hours for the day and disregard whatever you log beyond that. Why does this suck?? BECAUSE I SPENT MORE TIME THEN ANY MAN IN THE RIGHT MIND WOULD ADDING SIX HOUR INCREMENTS TO ALL THE GAMES IN MY LIBRARY AND IT WAS ALL FOR SQUAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I give up. Sometimes a mans gotta know when to say enough enough. I don't care if my Raptr profile accurately reflects my hours. Its enough to have a cool sig with consolidated achievements I suppose.

WHERE IS VESPERIA PS3???

j/k aside, I agree that Vesperia hit a high note in graphic style.  The cel-shading looks stunning and most likely reduce demand on the graphics card because it is a bit more blurry?  I don't see why would they not to attempt to try that style again.  The world design of Vesperia looks a lot better than say Xillia - some of the areas in Xillia looks downright uninspired e.g. copy-pasta of the trees on those cliffs.

Is tales of Hearts R any good?  How is the game with the noise about it being a "demake"??

From what I've seen: It's kinda basic Tales.  I'm sure it'll work well for a handheld, but (and I've said it before) I think the game did more as an NDS title than it will as a Vita title.  But I've heard decent things (some good, some bad) and I'm sure it'll be worth to see a technically missing title.

I'm sorta just sitting with my mouth partially open when I just found out that Jojo ending used "Walking like an Egyptian" by the Bangles for its ending theme.

And given the style and 'swankiness' of the show...and the 80s... it's almost a perfect fit.

This site, you just type in stuff and get answers right. It's a kind of addictive site. I was introduced to it with a map of the world, you have to name all 196 (current) sovereign nations, and you have 12 minutes. I took it 30 times until I learned them all, and now I can do it in like 6 minutes. Then I started taking other quizzes, and searching for quizzes. And I noticed a distinct lack of good RPG quizzes.

So the link up there? That's just a big (but non-exhaustive) list of RPGs on 16-bit consoles (SNES, Genesis, a few PCE/Turbografx). I give you the hint, you give the answer. I have the answers laid out in alphabetical order.

I might add more to it, or I might make more quizzes, such as game-specific quizzes where you have to name all playable characters or other trivia to the game. There are a bunch of pokemon quizzes, but I would be more interested in doing, say, a Xenosaga lore quiz. :P

Plz let me know what you think.

I think part of it might be that Vesperia did not use motion capture, so the character designs could be more stylized. Dawn of the New World was the first Tales game with motion capture and the characters jitter around like they've had too much coffee and while it isn't as bad, it's still present in Graces and Xillia. Weird proportions don't work too well with motion capture, as Eternal Sonata shows.

This is super good.

On one hand I hate it because it just rips on the five best-known anime that have already been parodied to death (I generally don't like when NA rips on anime because while they're pretty accurate, they're also pretty overblown...which is kind of ironic). 

That being said, the Ponyo one and Howl's Moving Castle robot mockery are *Perfect*  ...and likely very true. x)
