I can play as Isabelle

Temptation intensifying.

Oh wait, Mario Kart?!

You tell 'em, Isabelle. We don't need this shit.

I saw a full gameplay of this game, and the music is something else. I really enjoyed it, as well as watching the whole game. I look forward to the next game. ;)

Also, yes, Exploding Hearts is awesome. ;)

My recommendations:

Garbage Day
Tallgrass Tussle
Praise Wally / My Lord, My Wally
Evil Draws Near
Vroom Vroom

*checks thread, sees FF12 hate, is overjoyed* All I can really add at this point is that as far as I am concerned, it is the worst FF game. Damn single player MMO.

Being in the middle of a recent playthrough I'd actually argue FF6 - US SNES Version is a better contender. Typos everywhere, horrid localization (which translates to terribly laughable character moments), rancid monster design (starting from about the Esper Cave onwards every enemy has some sort of 'gimmick' that makes them far harder than they need to be to kill), the FLOATING ISLAND ZONE HOLY HELL, Esper Magic grinding is worse than even FF8's drawing, I don't even want to imagine leveling up in this game without 'Fast Forward' mode (spent 3+ real time hours with mostly fast forward down getting 5 party members into the 70's; and because of Kefka's tower I need at least 12)...ect, ect.

FF12 put me to sleep. FF6 is stealing my kidneys after drugging me.

Honestly I believe anyone who speaks highly of 'this' version hasn't played it since they were a kid. >.<

As a side note, funnily enough Terra is just as bad as Vaan in the 'contributes nothing to the main plot' yet no one ever mentions this. The Returners would be doing their thing without her and eventually Locke would've run into Celes, giving movement to the rest of the plot. Literally the only thing Terra contributes that any other party member wouldn't have done is open the Esper Door. But according to the plot they were 'just sitting there waiting' anyway. So as soon as something opened the door the empire razing flame fest was going to happen regardless. Delete Terra, give Celes most of her role; plot goes unchanged.

This would make sense if Kefka wasn't in the top 2 or 3 for greatest villains in the history of RPG's.  And the reason no one mentions Terra being a terrible protagonist is because A) she shares the lead with Celes and Locke (as mentioned above) and B) she isn't terrible at all.  Her backstory is gutwrenching,

The new Mario Kart DLC pack came out today and it is excellent. Nearly all the tracks are complete, winners. My two favorite Super Circuit tracks have been reimagined, I can play as Isabelle, I can race through Animal Crossing and Big Blue, the chaos of Baby Park returns. Just fantastic. I honestly hope they do more DLC packs for this game every now and then, but if this and the first pack are all there will be, I'm satisfied. Great stuff.

It's a great game, but I think I'm getting too addicted to it.

Oh god I hate that feeling. I'm maybe a little too unfocused to develop a proper addiction to things now, but in college or even up through like 2012, I'd get in that mindset and... blurgh.

@Mickey: I felt like the quarry was the worst part of the game. It's fine but it's not indicative of some of the highpoints that game hits.

Shadow Tower - I think I might need to take a break from this because it's contributing to my dreams being weird -- imagine you're dreaming with wonky King's Fieldian movement/rotation/stamina mechanics. Yeeeah -- anyway.

Did some stuff in the fire dungeon near the boss, and had to burn through a lot of my Caustic Ring and use an HP potion there, which wasn't bad, but then went back to the earth dungeon and found a quasi-secret area and... ended up losing about 800-1000 HP there buuuut I found a bunch of potions and two 14 soul point vials. Feels like a good trade off. I have 1600 HP left so definitely going back to the start so I can repair it.

The whole HP-as-currency thing is kind of brilliant. Every action you do has a cost, either in terms of equipment durability or HP, so you have to make sure the tradeoff is worth it for whatever you do. And it like, recontextualizes what you do -- okay, I have 3000 HP, so do I go back and spend that on repairing equipment, or do I use that to clear out another part of the dungeon?

And then since HP potions are always full heal, you never want to heal too soon because like, healing back to 3400 HP when you're at 1600 HP means you effectively wasted HP you could spend on something else, be that dealing with more enemies or using it to repair equipment. So proper risk-reward.

I feel like Venus and Mars were in some weird alighnment that they just got out of, because for 2 straight weeks until today, my head was full of fuck. Feels good to think about other stuff now. I had a dream about giant robots fighting in an astroid belt out in space last night. They looked pretty sweet. Maybe I'll go watch Macross or something.

I'm debating deleting School Idol Festival from my iPad.  It's a great game, but I think I'm getting too addicted to it.  Like to the point where my brain is saying,"you're addicted and it's depressing like a nicotine habit."  The only way I've been able to successfully conquer my addictions, no matter how minor or major, is to just cut that junk out cold turkey and never look back. 

And Klutz- Fairy Fencer F's balance issues will hit you later on.  With it, Mugen Souls Z, and Agarest 2, I got through the early portions pretty smoothly then before the halfway mark they pulled an about-face and started getting sadistic.

Two brothers and their friend are trying to get their big break in movies or TV, but because they're really dumb, a misunderstanding happens and sets off a chain of events messing up their lives.
series premiere
the rest of the episodes so far

This may be the first TV comedy in recent memory that doesn't have a sitcom format, so that's pretty neat.
It just sucks that it hasn't gotten very high viewership ratings.
