LoH:TitS1; Ruanning of the Gulls edition.

Man fires are to orphanages like cheese is to pizza. Anyways, learning from my previous mistake and started a third save file to continue from here on so that I don't have to replay the first half of the game a third time.

So I've made a bit of progress in Persona 2 Innocent Sin.....and holy crap this game is 20th Century Boys. It is just so weird. I mean I am enjoying it, but it is just sort of a weird sensation to see a similar story concept to 20th Century Boys (not the rumors part, but some other aspects of it). Mind you Persona 2 is 100x more batshit insane and they do go in completely different directions. But it is still weird. Enjoying the game overall though.

Seems like I ran into some issues with playing more Suikoden. Oh well, it wasn't of high priority anyway. So instead I decided to give another go at the Super Robot Wars games. This time with the Original Generation. Needless to say, I've always wanted to get into it as SRW has some of the coolest and batshit crazy robots out there. I just love stuff like that even more than my sword wielding fantasy heroes. Sadly there isn't much material available outside Japan and this game also doesn't actually have the simplest systems available. Limited exp/money, but lots of options to spend it on. Means that a person like me will get paranoid about messing shit up and can't just sit back and enjoy. Certainly my genre in terms of subject matter, but maybe not quite that in terms of gameplay. In the end I guess I prefer straight mecha combat. Anyway, I'll try to get through at least one scenario for now.

I've been playing Assassin's Creed III. Outside the missions where it's required, stealth seems damn near impossible compared to the previous games. I've been trying to take the forts without being seen, but going anywhere that isn't a hiding spot exposes you instantly to about 5 guards at a time, and there are hardly any high places where they can't see you. It's far easier to just not bother and slaughter the 20-odd mooks that come after you.

Not sure if you're playing the GBA version or the PS2 version but generally speaking, if you want to break the game a bit, load all of your early game money onto an M95 Machine Gun. Fully upgraded, it'll one shot mooks and trash bosses for a long time, has a reasonable medium range, a ton of ammo, and will make for a decent endgame weapon for those lacking a proper finisher, and all that from one of the cheapest weapons to upgrade in the game.

Persona 4

Managed to beat Contrarian King and the boss of the second dungeon. If it is anything like the PS2 version, the difficulty should steadily decrease from now on as SP becomes less of an issue.

The game is really good but that said, it doesn't seem to add as much as P3 FES or P3P did.

Just beat the main storyline for FFXIII-2, I have to say, I kind of did not see that coming. Working on the Lightning DLC now in order to see the 'true ending'.

I think once that is done, i might be on a short 2 week break as I'll be heading to Korea next week, then it'll be right into FF XII-3.

Eurotruck 2 - Took a job to haul a giant industrial concrete penis from Frankfurt to Dijon.

1. I'm not getting fined for clipping other drivers with my trailer. I think in those cases the game might be assuming it as their fault for not getting out of the way.

2. I keep forgetting that the speed limiter was patched out awhile ago. This resulted in me going like 80 km/h, missing an offramp followed by a sharp turn, trying to take it anyway, flipping, and somehow bouncing back upright.

3. Rural northern france has a lot of annoying stoplights -- or maybe this is switzerland idk where is Strasbourg? -- which means I have to stop a lot. Except giant industrial concrete penises way enough that I have to downshift my engine to like second gear to start moving again, and your max speed in second gear is like 15 km/h. So it's like, stop, shift down, get moving, shift up, get a decent speed, stop again.

4. I keep forgetting I have a retarder.

5. Playing driving sims while not knowing how to drive is probably a lot more magical than playing driving sims when you DO know how to drive.

Yeah, this seems quite effective. I think I've got a pretty good feel for it, especially now that I got some better mechs like Cybuster and Grungust. Man, Cybuster is so swag. Here we have our heroes trying to wage war with their masterpieces of technology and then this guy shows up with his robot powered by MAGIC from another dimension with two talking cats. Anyway, it's manageable if not a bit held down by luring the player to optimize good exp/money gains instead of just trying to play with raw tactics.

Yeah, that is the inherent problem with crossover based SRPGs, the game is more designed to allow the player a certain level of prerogative in terms of who to field and in what, which means that there's gonna be some real clunkers mixed in with the more posh units and the specialists. Anyways, be prepared for water stages since Ryusei's route is notorious for abundant water stages.

Wii Fit U -  I discovered I have horrible balance and apparently I gained 7 lbs in one day.  I agree with the former but doubt the latter. 

The Secret World - I am having a blast.  I don't see a lot of people and most people I see are running around solo.  I made it to Blue Mountain and after crafting better gear and tweaking my build, I am doing a lot better.

Finally beat Eternal Sonata. Just as equal parts fun and frustrating as I remember it, although there were less changes in the PS3 version than I thought there would be. Though the improved visuals were certainly nice.
My final party for Mysterious Unison was Jazz, Serenade, and Viola. Jazz because I just shove him in the enemy's face since he can eat just about any attack. Serenade because she's an absolute beast once she learns Throne of Thorns (and a decent healer to boot) and Viola because she will always be my favorite character in the game. I mean, aside from her completely unfounded and only-mentioned-once involvement in the Jazz love parade.


Also, Klyde was correct about FFIV:CC, and oddly enough I was literally on the edge of the point where the game goes from mysteriously difficult to surprisingly easier then the original.

Was the last bonus dungeon of Eternal Sonata (EZI church or something) in the Xbox version? Though it is just too much of a pain in the ass to get there.

Beat the crap out of The Guided Fate Paradox final boss last evening. I liked the gameplay and some of the stories had something worthwhile to say, but the setting was a bit too much. Heavenly butlers? A cruel angel thesis made Sam Riegel god? (Wait, was that a haiku?) Why is Sam Riegel in every game I play anyway?!

Because he is in a tone of games. Comparing my backlist to his credits, he is in 4/7 of the RPGs I own but have yet to play......and I seem to have played 22 games that he has been in. Which I think puts him as being in about 10% of all games that I have owned.....scary.
