Yeah, it's the PC version, which has actual widescreen support, hi-res fonts and some hi-def textures/dialog portraits imported from the PS3 version. The PC version always looked better than the PSP-version, but with the PC version having been given a slight graphic update by XSeed and the PSP version apparantly being stretched on the Vita screen, the difference between the two versions is even bigger. In fact, since the PC version contains an updated translation that contains clearer dialogue in several story-centric scenes in the last chapter, there's no reason to play the console version unless you REALLY dislike PCs.

Frankly, when someone on the first podcast said that the font was hard to read/bad-looking, my first reaction was: "What on earth is he talking about?"

Yep! I'm playing the PC version via steam. It's a lot more convenient and visually appealing. That, and the use of a USB controller is a saving grace. ;)

So was the plan to have a midgame progress update during the middle of the month?

I ask because a friend of mine thinks that doing a midmonth progress episode would get thoughts of the game thus far (since endings have a tendency to swing one way or another) and bring the non-participants on to the same page as the rest of the crew.

Yes! We did record a mid-month episode, it's just taking a little bit to wrap up. ;) I also have images to post with that recording when it does go live, because what is this game even? ;)

In seriousness, I'm actually starting to enjoy this game more than I did when I first started because it really did feel like it dragged in the Prologue/Chapter 1. However, my opinion on some of the game has changed and you'll hear soon enough my love for a certain sidequest in Ruan that was just awesomesauce. :)

For now, I leave this image:

That looks way better than my Vita. Is that for PC?

Depends on which version you're playing.

In the original, yeah. You're going to have to check it all out manually.

In the remake, you can switch pages which enable you to see what that piece of equipment is providing numerically. You can then compare just by scrolling up and down like you'd normally do.

Either way though, outside of rare cases like Baldur, you're generally wearing the best you've got (or can equip in the remake since equipment have level requirements to them).

I don't see what you're trying to tell me Aeolus. The numbers don't mean anything unless I already know what my characters have equipped. And since none of the shops tell me what I already have equipped, I've resorted to writing down the levels of each of the equipment that all of my characters are carrying.  If it's at a higher level and I don't have a piece of equipment at that level already on, then i buy it.  Definitely overly complicated.  Am I still missing something that will make this easier? I'm playing the PSP remake on my Vita.

edit: checked a bunch of other forums.  It seems like everyone complains about this.  Why do I not remember this being a problem when I played this thing in High School?

I must admit to my being turned off by being cast in a role vs. being able to do the create a character gig to be a totally shallow, superficial and close minded stance for me to maintain. Its one of those subjective hang-ups in terms of preference that I can objectively look at as a poor sensibility that handicaps my ability to enjoy/give certain media a chance.

In truth, a character that doesn't bode well with me is enough for me to pass up just about any media and sadly I'm sort of strict about my taste in characters.

Ah well, knowing our shortcomings is half the battle right??

I finally started English Tales of Hearts R. I wasn't mistaken, this game is definitely better than Xillia. It's formulaic, but I'm enjoying it way more than Xillia, which felt painfully perfunctory and rushed.

Also played some Graces F for the first time, and I like that, too. I hear the cast is awful, but I'll be damned if the area design isn't more interesting than Xillia.

Basically I really don't like Xillia.

My plan was to get it free with the purchase of a new GTX960 (that deal's good til the end of the month, btw).

I was planning on doing the same.

Then I remembered I don't do much gaming on my PC, so I thought better of it...though if it's good till the end of the month, that gives me time to lose my senses again. If not, then I probably won't ever be getting Witcher 3. Doesn't seem like my kinda game from what I've seen.

So word is, Harry Shearer is leaving The Simpsons. The door isn't entirely closed, but apparently, it's looking more and more that it may be the case. The show's producers have said they will replace him if he doesn't agree to come back. I can't imagine the show without the actual voices of Mr Burns; Ned Flanders; Smithers; Kent Brockman; Dr Hibbert; Lenny; Rev Lovejoy; etc. 
To be fair, I haven't actually watched the show in a long time. It became unfunny to me about 10 years ago or so. I've tried to watch a "new" episode once every few years or so since then, but I always end up turning it off early, because I find myself not laughing in any way at all. Anyway, it's just such a weird notion that all of Shearer's characters could have different voices...

I'l have a lot more to say soon, but I think it makes a pretty but clusterfucky first impression with way too many popups, menus, clicks, and other stuff. Feels a little janky.

After a few hours it comes together though, and it's quite fun. Fantastic atmosphere, really captures a unique European fantasy vibe.
