Aeolus..... what would I do without you?

Ok, so I'll go make myself a Max TP Up augment (I already made an X for Lin and I think I have one Boiled-Egg Ore to make a XV), build up a full TP bar, and then start the Overdrive and alternate Damage > Damage > Support over and over.  That's the basic idea?

I'm running on PS3 because my Vita is keyed to my UK account and the game only dropped here last week, and I just couldn't wait to get my hands on it so I bought digitally on my US account in December. I plan to buy the limited Vita edition because that box is hot, but the PS3 version runs smooth.

I hear the Vita release has slightly longer load times, but not nearly as bad as Valkyrie Profile PSP or anything.

A friend of mine got a package from some acquaintances living in the US. The pack contained different kinds of sweets. Don't ask me why, even my friends don't know. It was a nice albeit completely random gesture. Among the goodies were red "Twizzlers" which they promptly unloaded on me. I already know how terrible these thing are so I passed them on someone else. After tasting said Twizzlers, the person I gave them to apparently gifted them to someone else. What I'm trying to say is, HOW CAN YOU EAT THOSE THINGS?

Apparently Betty White eats those things all the time.  So... apparently they're really good for you so that's why they taste bad?

Trying to buy a house. This is the shittiest time to do it. There is nothing available here in our price range. Or, there isn't anything here that a normal human being would purchase for that price. The worst part is there are going to be probably 500 families moving here within the next 12 months. FUUUUCK

The latest: Polygon reports they're keeping the petting scenes and the animations, but removing the touch interactivity. So it's basically there, in tact, on autoplay.

So...I guess just mime touching the screen with the stylus if ya want! Honestly, I don't know what to say about this, other than "whatever"

This is good compromise. It looks like all you see is the animation and dialogue that plays after the touching session. By comparison, here is one of Sakura's scenes in the Japanese version. So we'll only be seeing the last part, where she says she'd like to spend more time together. Which is honestly the best outcome as far as I'm concerned. There's a fair amount of dialogue in those little post-petting session scenes and most of it is quite sweet and romantic, so it's good that we're not losing that. Also, you still get the relationship bonus, so people worried about losing a way to grind supports should be happy. But no "find the magic place that turns your little sister on" crap.

Also if you did buy Cold Steel on Vita vs. PS3, anyone know if theres a difference between the two? I know I've heard of previous podcast some games are more glitchy on a different system. I think I heard a while back (Not sure if it was Retro or Random Encounter) that FF 10 had a lot of bugs on the PS4. Anyone know if one is more buggier than the other?

From what I've heard, the differences are very minimal. PS3 obviously runs at a higher resolution and the frame rate slowdown and load times aren't quite as bad (though there are definitely still frame rate issues on PS3). The only other major difference is that character shadows in the Vita version are simple circles while the PS3 version has detailed shadows. I've seen people say that the text and UI is hard to read on Vita, but I haven't found that to be the case personally. I haven't heard about one version being buggier than the other (or either being buggy to begin with), so if you're interested, I'd say get it for whatever system you'd rather play it on.

I picked it up on Vita partly because I was out of town when it came out, but also partly because I love having a console RPG experience that I can play anywhere. That was part of the magic with P4G and Cold Steel is the same; it's kind of crazy to think we can have these full fledged, meaty RPGs with us wherever we go. One of the reasons I love my Vita very much.

If I were to try and make a list, it's immensity would instantly spaghettify me into oblivion.

Won't even mention my Steam backlog after I started buying bundles.

They (and GOG) sell their shit so danged cheap, it's practically irresistible.

"Sweet! I've been meaning to play that!"
*purchases at incredible price*
*never looks at it again*

Finished a long sidequest to get the Vampire Asterisk from Lord DeRosso in Bravely Default. The six elemental dragons were really difficult, but I managed to make it through them with sword magics and Utsutsumi. The Vampire Castle was a longish dungeon with tough enemies too, but Lord DeRosso wasn't too difficult.

Job wise I haven't switched it up to juggle the jobs in a while since I like the current setup I have. I'll be switching things soonish though as all of the characters are getting really close to level 14 in their current jobs. After they get there I'll switch Edea back to Red Mage to max out the support skills, Ringabel to either Time or Black Mage to get all of the magics available with those respective jobs, Agnes to Performer to max out those skills and then to Spiritmaster. Tiz, well, I'm not really sure what I'll do with Tiz at the moment.

Anyway, I'm going to take a break for a few days to read the new Mistborn novel. Once that's finished I'll pick it back up to go and awaken the Earth Crystal.

Even though you rarely used the spinner and Dominion rod, the times I did get to use them were pretty super fun. Actually, the whip in SS was pretty cool, and so was the beetle really..

I think the TP items just felt more like medieval gothic fantasy or something (Ball and chain, mind control rod) etc as opposed to more Wind Waker fantasy.

Anyway! I did see the new information about TP, sounds like minor changes mostly, none that really affected my impression outside of rupees don't go back in the wallet which has to be the first time I've seen the new change be less favorable to kind of completionism which is sort of nice (always kind of annoyed me to have chests hanging around with $ that I would have to go get later)

The Poe Lantern seems like the other way which is, eh, whatev. I never got all the Poes either but it didn't really bother me that I didn't I guess. I can't even remember if that's because it felt cheap-difficulty or good-difficulty, so maybe that's even a good change.

Poes were really annoying to find as they only showed up at Night and required you to be in Wolf Form to see/fight and unlike OoT, the game did not keep track of the ones that you had already gotten. Not helping matters was that it was yet another collectathon except that it started about half way into the game, and the good prize only required like 20 or 40 of the buggers while getting all 60 was just infinite money in a game that was so absolutely flush with money that you were leaving behind dungeon chests because you couldn't carry it all and only the Magic Armor ever really required rupees (you could replace Potions with Chu Jelly and eventually the Soup, while the only other buyable piece of equipment was the basic Shield which was outdated by dungeon 2 and maybe some of the more esoteric items like the Hawkeye Mask or a Bomb Bag, plus the minigames themselves tend to run really cheap and tended to award Rupees anyways so you could only burn so much of the stuff off of those).

So yeah, I never did the Poes either because it was always way too much work for no real benefit.

Yeah, I've always been a Zelda completionist (which thankfully has never been too time consuming), at least when I first play a new Zelda game. I ended up using a guide to find all of the Poes because it was so difficult, and it really wasn't worth it getting all 60. Really, the unlimited rupees was only useful if you wanted to run the magic armor, which was basically useless except for maybe in the lower levels of the Cave of Ordeals.

Listening to your most recent podcast sounds like most of you are playing or bought Trails in the Sky: Cold Steel on the Vita. I haven't played it yet, I still need to finish Second Chapter but has anyone bought a Vita tv? It sounds like you guys like the Vita. You might like the Vita tv even more if you like playing with a controller.

Also if you did buy Cold Steel on Vita vs. PS3, anyone know if theres a difference between the two? I know I've heard of previous podcast some games are more glitchy on a different system. I think I heard a while back (Not sure if it was Retro or Random Encounter) that FF 10 had a lot of bugs on the PS4. Anyone know if one is more buggier than the other?

I have games that never even made it out of their case. Won't even mention my Steam backlog after I started buying bundles.
