I don't get you all and your Yunalesca issues.
On my second run of FFX, I just zombieproof my trio.

If that's really all you did you would lose the second she changed to her third form.

I said my trio ;)
Just swap with your bench warmers or summon an aeon.

....Why does Yuna say "ok" weird.  She says like within half a second.  This happens about ten times too. x)

They couldn't figure out how to re-synch the lip synching so Yuna had to talk funny to match it, idk that's what I heard, the bible says it i believe it.

--- edit ---

Suiko 3 - Up to Caleria with Geddoe. Boss fight in the mountains was interesting -- ended up sacrificing Queen by having Joker use a /really/ damaging AoE spell which... ended up paying off cause it got rid of the extra heads. Still feel like the dungeon length and encounter rate is well-paced to the amount of magic you get, even if the dungeons are pretty simple. Also picked up Johnny Blackjack and bought some salt.

Also do the chapter play out differently based on the order you do them in or did I completely forget how the game played out? I could've /sworn/ Geddoe Ch. 1 ended after Karaya.

Whatever, I'm surprised but I'm like ridiculously addicted to this game now.

... Wouldn't necessarily mind having a copy of Suikoden 2 but the upper limit I'd be willing to spend on it's about thirty dollars less than it's ever sold for in the past decade or so.

Also, thinking of a system in Legend of Mana where the ST bar governs other things besides launching ST attacks -- plunge attacks stun/knockback the enemy but cost meter, quick attacks don't hitstun anymore but build meter, movement speed is tied to the meter in various ways...

Made it to Act 2 (Chapter 4) of Witch and the Hundred Knight. Last chapter was incredibly annoying. Those succubi enemies and their jumoing around got so irritating. And then there was the town where you'd occasionally get attacked by the indestructible enemies. Finally, the boss actually managed to kill me the first time because I wasted too much time trying to fight through that endless wave of Tiramisus instead of just finishing off Cigaro.

FFX

= Butterfly Catching was made difficult by my shitty depth perception.  Also, them butterflies are clearly laced with crystal meth.

= BEAT LIGHTNING DODGING. 
It took:
  • A full movie on in the background
  • Sunglasses after several failed attempts started to wear my eyes
  • Eyedrops, again due to the flashes wearing on my eyes gradually.
  • TV settings to dim the flashes and turning on the "big lights" (ie, not lamps)
  • Stop counting in anything other than approximates (I probably went over 200)
  • That awesome crater.  It's honestly really hard to do this unless you can keep a consistent pattern...

Was it worth it?   I dunno...Bragging rights I guess.

I still have not done the dodging because it hurts my eyes too much to concentrate on it for so long... maybe I should dim it like you said. I heard muting it is good too so the sound doesn't throw you off. This is gonna be one of the last things I do haha.

Forward momentum in Bravely Default! After grinding a bit for new gear, I (rather easily) defeated both optional bosses in the canyon and then took out Victor/ia which was also not that hard of a fight... once you took poison/exterminate out of the equation. Though I couldn't resist leaving enough of my party exposed a few times so I could poison Victor and watch her use Exterminate on him.

Very close to the end of Lost Odyssey (finally)! But now I'm worried about my Xbox 360 red ringing. Mine is pretty old and when my friend came over this weekend he said it's bound to happen soon, because red ringing is what Xboxes do.

Speaking of Xboxes doing stupid things, mine thinks it's 22 November 2005 every day. All my save files on it are from 22 November 2005. Does it do that because I unplug it after I'm done playing or is it stuck in a time loop?

Usually, the internal clock has its own battery. Sounds like that battery is dead.

That makes sense, allthough looking at my saves that'd mean it has been dead for many years. Wait, what if the 360 doesn't have a battery for stuff like that? I guess that'd explain it.

Finished DmC reboot. Good stuff. I don't care what anyone says, this game was all sorts of fun. I hate Devil May Cry. I always hated Dante. There is ton about the tone, style and utter degree of "slick" in this game that was stomach turning to me. But the gameplay and combat was addicting enough to outweigh all of it. It was a good enough time, that I may in the future consider dropping 9 bucks on the Virgil DLC.

Getting back to Atelier after about a week long hiatus to polish off DmC and tend to some real life deadlines. Happy to see the difficulty turned up a notch by the middle of the 2nd year... or maybe I'm just playing worse? LoL

Escha and Logy is another case where the gameplay is far outweighing most everything else for me. Its quite fun for the OCD completionist personality in me to meet deadlines and constantly see 100% pop up every time I do something. However, the writing is just not grabbing me. Its not endearing at all. The game is not terribly humorous, nor is it all the charming. As expected, it is not epic or very serious in tone. Thus far, I am feeling a little disapointed in the plot department.

As I play Escha and Logy, I can't help but romance the idea of playing Lost Odyssey now.... I'm starting to wonder if I should be more relaxed about dropping games that don't grab me. Part of me just keeps wondering if it will get better (Escha and Logy that is). While another part of me says "its atelier you know what to expect you freakin' idget!!"

The Virgil DLC is NOT worth 9 bucks. Don't buy it! I got it for free for pre-ordering the game and was still disappointed! It's like 2 hours long and Virgil controls like ass until you unlock all of his abilities at the end. It is only for people who want to replay the same stuff over on the higher difficulties (not me). The comic book style animations for the story sequences were lame too. You could tell they spent zero time on this compared to the main game.

Back to progress. Finally got Auroch Reels which wraps up the Blitzball Master trophy. Still need the sigil though, which means I'm going to have to finish off this league and hope it pops up in the next one. I'm honestly sick of blitzball so I can't wait to end this. It's so boring once you have an unstoppable team. I have never lost a match nor have I won by less than 5 in any game. I have maxed out every stat on the sphere grid now except for Luck and Magic, the two that take the longest...

Ugh... life has been severly getting in the way of my precious rpg-life. Getting some more useless summons in Tales of Symphonia. I'm at the ice temple and I've yet to use a single summon even once (except the squirrel, *sob*). When did this game turn into a zelda mode anyway? I'm just getting from an elemental temple to the next.

Some puzzles also tend to annoy me quite a bit. Not that they are hard, but RPG puzzles... well, for example I was escoring this midget slaying three groups of enemies, then reached the door at the bottom. Turns out he wasn't following me, so I had to go back to the precious screen, fight all the enemies again (since they respawn and you can't dodge anything in narrow paths) and then escort him once more past the enemies. I also visited the same path for a treasure chest earlier, which means that I fought the three groups of enemies 6 times, meaning 18 battles. I mean come on...

I still have not done the dodging because it hurts my eyes too much to concentrate on it for so long... maybe I should dim it like you said. I heard muting it is good too so the sound doesn't throw you off. This is gonna be one of the last things I do haha.

I always thought this was the easiest and fastest minigame. Providing you use the lighting-always-hits-the-same-place trick. I don't think it took much more than 5 minutes.

I have maxed out every stat on the sphere grid now except for Luck and Magic, the two that take the longest...

On to the Lightning Dodging mentioned earlier, I was really starting to tweak out after a few failed attempts, my eyes were bugging me and I lost concentration really easily.  So long as you do the crater trick and you know when to expect the bolts (I actually marked a 'dark patch' that was my signal to press 'X' every time) I was good dimming the TV and brightening the room (which is something I learned from all those anime TV shows telling you to watch in a well lit room haha).

I'm doing Blitzball now...  I guess I got really freaking lucky, I won 3 games (scored once, then hid behind the goalie and watched everyone do circles) and the girl at the Bar was good to give me Wakka's ultimate weapon (used by a summoner??  Cool!  It's like an NBA star saving the earth).  I'm working on the reels and I'm scared as hell.
I got good players, but I hate trying to make the good prizes re-appear.
