I actually got games over the weekend. Best Buy has their stupid amazing sale on 3DS games so I picked up A Link Between Worlds and Bravely Default for 20 a piece. Like I said, stupid amazing deal. So I've been playing LoZ. It's been my first new LoZ game in a while actually. Last one I played was Oracle of Time. » 7/23/14 12:43pm Yesterday 12:43pm

Sadly, humans need hierarchy. It used to be simply the best at finding food or protecting the rest was the best. Then we decided it was based off of who you were decended from, what nation you were from, how much money you have or your skin color, gender, etc. Since we try hard to move past that, the next logical step… » 7/18/14 1:51pm Friday 1:51pm

Lord, so much drama. Okay, so I've mentioned before that we need my house fixed due to evil country hired contractors. We can't do the work because the weather has been so humid that it's been impossible to drag stuff outside without it getting damaged, and it has the additional side effect of causing me and my mom to… » 7/18/14 1:29pm Friday 1:29pm

Okay, let me tell you about this motherfucking game right here. You see it's got fairies? And unicorns? And girls using magic? This was a Larping game before Larping was cool (if it ever was). In it it came with cassette tape, a book of magic, a deck of decoder cards, banners, magical amulets and magic mirrors. The… » 7/15/14 1:46pm 7/15/14 1:46pm

I've never really walked away from a game since I tend to be pretty careful about what I buy, but there's definitely a big contrast between the really pretty backgrounds of Star Ocean: Til the End of Time and the official character designs. I don't know why but...damn. » 7/10/14 1:37pm 7/10/14 1:37pm

Not too big a fan of the 4th. Everyone shoots off illegal fireworks (but I repeat, my harmless shipping container is somehow an affront to humanity) and I have bad memories because my dog Athena was hella terrified or fireworks. But we will be having a barbeque. My mom made her potato salad, which is amazing, and I… » 7/03/14 12:52pm 7/03/14 12:52pm

Normally I loathe fetch quests with a burning passion, but one of my favorite mechanics of Atelier Iris was the fact that when you did the fetch quests for the shop keepers you would learn more about their histories and stories. Like that one girl who runs a bakery was a former slave and so on. » 7/03/14 12:04pm 7/03/14 12:04pm

Well this makes me 30 levels of excited because I was seriously hoping this game would be ported. If Gust also announces that last Dusk Atelier game to be licensed I'll be doing backflips. Looks like the Gust games alone are finally what are getting me to get a PS3 » 7/01/14 4:30pm 7/01/14 4:30pm

Less see, in the past 6 months I've seen 3 doctors and still haven't gotten my meds changed, I finished my second volume of my graphic novel series, I've gone to one con, and I've completed about 6 games of my backlog, Not too bad actually. » 7/01/14 2:34pm 7/01/14 2:34pm

Craf-TAY Corner: July

If you do any kind of creative hobby from drawing to cosplay to model building, this is the place to talk about your ongoing and upcoming projects.

My favorite genre is Turn-based JRPGs, particularly very cutesy anime ones. Why? I prefer the turn based gameplay because I like planning out my moves and having time to think. Action RPGs are okay, but most of them are button mashing, even the best ones. I'm a huge anime fan, and I have a soft spot for doe-eyed,… » 6/27/14 1:06pm 6/27/14 1:06pm

Yeah, those 4 hour boss fights with 50 different forms are super annoying. Kingdom Hearts is guilty big-time of this, especially the final bosses. It's especially annoying when they bookend it with huge boss fight-10 minute cute scene-huge boss fight with no way to save your progress in between. It's aggravating when… » 6/27/14 12:44pm 6/27/14 12:44pm

I love attic diving. I might have to do a similar feature with my stuff. Maybe as a motivator to sell some of it. I still have a few of those preview videos from Kids WB. I actually still have a buttload of old anime still on VHS. Goodwill is my friend. » 6/24/14 1:13pm 6/24/14 1:13pm
