I'm disappointed Honey Boo Boo was cancelled based on criminal charges instead of poor ratings...

Anyways, I checked my work schedule and I have Halloween off! :D

I'm a little over halfway through the game now. Just got my first Talisman (elephant stomp), and reached a second heart container. I'm off to some mountain now, but after I track down the Zombie caravan again so I can deliver the 4th Squid there.

You could get away without grinding much in Chrono Trigger, but it makes the game quite a bit harder. I'm actually playing through Secret of Mana right now. Pro-Tip, don't waste your magic grinding too much. Bosses generally go down quick with the standard amount of MP, and magic is most useful for interrupting your opponent so your allies can get in some free shots. That alone seems to do me well enough. I tried grinding before a boss, but MP restoritives are rare and my magic didn't even level up by the time I ran out of MP...

Dragon Ball Z is an enjoyable romp if you take it for what it is, but it's still a heavily flawed show that severely fell off track and lost a lot of the naunce and charm its predecessor had...

Well, it's still better than the Fullbring arc ;)

I will say this arc has somewhat gone downhill since it started, but the fact that Kubo is willing to have the bad guys kill some pretty big names (it is the final arc after all, so these guys NEED to feel like they're the ultimate threat) makes every fight a bit more tense than usual.

True, but it's still getting utterly rediculous. Some of these powers sound like stuff 10-year-olds would come up with playing "anime" with their friends..."overpowered" and "half-baked" don't even begin to describe some of these abilities...

It hasn't aged well I can tell you that. It's extremely slow compared to RPGs before and after its time. It was ground break for the genre at it's release and I played through it multiple times. But I could easily go back and run through VI or IX before going back to VII.

Things they could improve would be game speed in general and most importantly, editing out filler story elements.

...IX is actually way slower than 7. I clocked it.

Okay, that actually makes a lot of sense. Reducing themselves to FFVII's fame would really be more hurtful than beneficial to them, not until a successor has passed it. But that just leaves the issue of Squenix' current approaches, which are embarrassing, to put it mildly...

Honestly that isn't even the real excuse. Sqaure would love to put out a remaster of VII but he issue is that the game would have to be completly redone from strach to make it appealing to audiences and you lose alot from the more campy 3D models that conveyed humor left. Without that your stuck with a game that's tonally like all the VII spin off content which is very dark and depressing.

Except, you know, people still like that style of gameplay. They'd definitely have to tweak a few things to get it to run better and look better, maybe get rid of random battles (not a necessity, though) but it'd be no more complicated than remaking Dragon Quest VII...maybe even less...

Except XII, Final Fantasy has been vanity projects and tech demos since the beginning of PS2. If they stay that course, no, they will never again hit the highs of the SNES/PS1 era.

Final Fantasy has always been a style-over-substance series where they're constantly experimenting with the formula. The only difference is before they were character-focused narratives that introduced ideas that were new to western audiences, though they usually weren't actually new - other games had done them in some form before. In fact, I think Final Fantasy IV's ATB system was the only Square-era FF system that I can't pin-point from other games that came before it, and that may simply be due to the limits of my knowledge than anything else...

Now they're more story-focused than they used to be, with battle systems in XII and XIII having systems that could more easily be argued as unique.

I had a dream last night that I was flirting with some handycapped woman (poss. Aspergers). She was large-bodied, with unkept hair and plain clothing, and looked at least 35 years old. Yet I kept talking to her and pretty soon we were halving a good time. She lived in a group home, and I wound up helping her with her things there, while she quizzed me about Pokemon (I got most of the questions right). Things got weird once her brother and her neice, as well as the other residents of the group home, started showing up. Most of that is just a blur.

Anyways, it's becoming a pattern for me how even in my dreams about me and girls, I keep my expectations heavily in check....

Now OTGW actually has an art style I can dig. The character designs aren't much different from stuff I usually dismiss, but the use of color really attracts my eye.

In fact, I was gonna muse about how I like so many different art styles but usually think most modern cartoons since 2006 look pretty bad, for reasons I can't even pin down. Now I'm wondering if maybe it's just color and texture usage/shading. Most cartoons these days look flat and simplistic for the characters, albeit often with more detailed backrounds, which winds up just distracting the eye. Old Hanna-Barbarra cartoons used to do that to some degree, too, but at least then it was more of a technical limitation/time constraint than anything else. Now they just use a lot of bright, flat colors even when the show is supposed to be a little more serious. Combine that with cheap animation and character designs that are cute or simplistic even when it might not be necessary (Just because you made it work in Samurai Jack doesn't mean you should use 'em in Sym-Biotic Titan, Tartakovsky!).

To put it simply, I think my problem with at least more story-driven cartoons is that the art doesn't feel like it fits the tone, or at least sets a tone I don't like. To be fair, I probably shouldn't diss the shows based on that, but I'll still probably dismiss most of them. It's mostly about me being picky about what I want to watch.

I guess what I want are for more shows that have a healthy mix of serious moments and comedic moments, while still staying focused on whatever stories they're trying to tell, and have the visual style feel like it's meant to compliment, even excentuate the story they're trying to tell. It's not impossible, and I'm sure I'm overlooking good series that do this already, but I find it so difficult to find one that sits well with me. Hopefully that new mini-series turns out to be good. I'd be more than happy to watch it. I should look and see what time it starts in November...

Considering how long Pirate's Curse was in production, and considering also that HGH met a bunch of stretch goals, including one that added multiple playable characters after the Kickstarter was over through Paypal donations, I think you're probably safe if you plan on playing it anytime in the next year or so.

They have yet to announce any delays and they've always held the release date as this month of this year. I fully expect a delay to be announced soon, but I don't think they'd wait until the very last minute to delay it a full year...

The main might be lacking in range, but there are more skills and as well as an optional ranged attack you can buy pretty soon into the game.

Anyways, I started playing through this on VC, and I'm actually pretty impressed with it now. Graphics are great with loads of detail in the sprites and animation, and I still can't believe this music ever came out of the GBC's speaker. The levels are big and explorable, rife with stuff to collect (although at this point I can't get any of it), and the level design is good with lots of detail, some clever puzzles, and unique enemies, although they seriously need more save points and one-ups. I guess you're supposed to grind for money to buy vials, but who wants to do that? They're expensive, and you have better things to buy.

Actually...my only complaint is how poor this game is as a portable game. The levels are huge (like, I spent at least 20 minutes in just one dungeon, and I'm only 2/3rds through it...I'm on my last life and my last save point is back in town), and sometimes require backtracking, too. Like I said, there's very few save points, so unless you bring some candy (which only warps you back to town...), if I was playing this on the GBC, I'd need at least an hour to dedicate to it, and god help me if my battery was running low...

But since I'm playing it on the 3DS VC, I have Restore Points, Temp-saves, and Sleep mode, so I'm good. :) I just hope I don't burn out after this game, it seems like it'll be a long one.
