^ What's that from?

Beat the boss I was trying to beat in Soul Hackers (Thanks FadedSun!) and now I'm
Code: [Select]
in the underground dungeon hopping around the transport pads
It's not nearly as frustrating as some other dungeons Atlus has done that have the same kind of mechanics.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2:

Getting into Online Battles lately and I'll try to learn some moves with Lars in the process. He has one of the smoothest style of fighting I've seen before in Tekken.

Also totally unrelated, someone put me in their ignore list. The fact that I annoyed someone that most likely I'll never know in person feels strange.

I was thinking about doing that in my latest CC run. I usually take Glenn, because, well, it's Glenn.

Same. My sis wanted to see me play Chrono Cross, and I already went down the Glenn path, so I decided to show her what happens in the game world if you choose to save Kid. While I do like my Glenn and Macha, I'm digging Razzly with her Magic and strong hits (Was doing over 40 for each dwarf, which is pretty darn good when doing a regular run of the game!).


I love getting Glenn because it involves being an asshole to Kidd (and her stupid f***ing name).  Let her go alone, let her get sicker, etc.

Got the following today while bargain hunting (and my PS3 controller started to malfunction at a good time)


Hot damn that's a VP book of some kind. Artbook? Or is it some kind of Japanese guide book.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

The controller came with a SE of Tales of Xillia 2 I found for $80 (so I paid basically an extra $25 for a controller).  I can vouch and say I like the feel of ToX2 more than 1; it definitely feels more "complete" and has more polish.

That is a VP artbook, but it also came with a "settings" book that explain character and plot and world elements.  Usually I find that for $100, but someone on Amazon had it for only $40.  Pretty damn good for an OOP book. :O

Think I've collected all my homies in Saints 4. Did as many activities as I could, and everyone's side missions so far.

The best was Pierce and Boss' singalong during his loyalty mission. Now it's time for the final missions! Oh wait, I think I see a data cluster.

The only videogame I've been playing for the last few months is Blitz, save for a few random FFIX binges that have slowly gotten me to disc 4.
Seriously though, Blitz fucking rules.

Been replaying Metroid Prime 3 after a long hiatus from gaming (longest in 10 years). Seriously, it's time for another Metroid, it's exactly the right time! I don't know why I'm having to replay a game, I should be playing a NEW one right now!

assholes

Anyway, I'm actually enjoying MP3 even better the second time around, almost as good as MP1. Then I'm playing bits of Trails in the Sky here and there (especially on tour, which my band is doing a lot of these days), someday I'll finished Bioshock: Infinite, loved that game but for some reason, I put it down.

Tales of Xill 2

= Better than 1 (already)
= Hair and clothes aren't pixelated anymore!  Graphical improvements!
= Holyfucking Lulu sounds like a creepy baby and definitely not like a cat.  Also, can Japan just put a cat on their flag already?
= Less obnoxious battle/victory theme!
= Ludger is a battle P-I-M-P
= Weird, in the span of one year, Triglyph has become an actual city....y'know, bigger than 2 maps and a copy/paste seaport! :D
= I hate silent protagonists,mainly because games ARE so cinematic/interactive these days; but I think the approach with Ludger was admirable since he gives sort of "uh-huh"'s and "hmphs".  Weird, but it works; and the constant "choice wheels" work well too.
=OMG TALES GAME SHOWING BLOOD?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!!? dun dun duuuun

Closest I've gotten to a "Perfect" in Hatsune Miku was my first time doing Ashes to Ashes on Normal; got a 97.9.  I also cleared on Hard with an 84.9 after two tries; my first try was a 79.5.  I tried it on Extreme but dropped out with a mere 12.8. 

But so far, "What? Ah Yes" and "Time Machine" are my two favorites.  I really want to unlock "World's End Dance Hall" since I really liked that song in the demo.  

What I really want is the OST to this game so I can listen to these songs in my car during my morning commute.

Yes, I know, a tad late to the show, but anyhow played Tales of Vesperia for @3 hrs today. I freaking loved Abyss so it should be no surprise I am LOVING this! Also picked up Forza 3 for pennies, nice little racing game.

I really hate the idea of synth vocals, but I've loved the opportunity its presented to new "underground" artists.

...I'm also more of a Gumi fan. :P

Given the level of ego some lead vocalists have, sometimes a "singer in a box" is what you want.  That's actually why a lot of really good musicians decide to stop being in bands; too many big egos, drama, and other assorted b.s.  

Oh, and I just unlocked World's End Dance Hall.  Yay! EDIT: I passed it on Normal and Hard, almost perfected it on Easy, and got 18.9 on Extreme before dropping out.

I just have three more songs to clear on Normal before I've cleared them all.

My favorite songs so far:

- World's End Dance Hall
- Summer Idol
- The Kagamine Twins song that's basically dueling banjos with Sitars. (Flowering something or other)
- Time Machine
- Black*Rock Shooter
My Blog - It's about gaming stuff. You can read it if you want. No pressure. I mean, there's a link there you just have to click on, but... y'know... whatever.

Great minds must think alike.  My 3 faves are World's End Dance Hall, What? Ah Yes, and Time Machine... in no particular order.  Though I put Time Machine as my favorite in my in-game profile.
