I’m not far enough in to rank it in my overall game list, but it is the most I’ve enjoyed a JRPG in years.

I helped him out. I’m not evil.

Though I’ll totally ditch him for almost any other character.

Well, I am from Tennessee, so I’m allowed to sound a bit like a hick at times.

Why is a game about high school social lives so dang good?

Why can I not stop playing this game?

Why is there a carnival bear in the TV anyway?

But it’s grammatically correct, and that’s all that matters to me.

Good can be used as an adverb.

Sometimes the gut reaction to change is warranted. Not all change is good. If something changes from what you liked it for, then unless you like the new thing just as much there is no reason to enjoy the change.

So while maybe no one is purposely aiming to take away the thing you like, it kind of happens anyway. Companies like money, so they make things that have the biggest audiences. Genres that don’t have mass appeal get overlooked, and sometimes disappear. Just look at games like Rogue Squadron, or shmups that aren’t bullet hell, they pretty much don’t exist these days.

True. I have quite a bit different tastes in games from Arch, but I do have similar concerns over the industry. I just usually don’t say anything about it, as I prefer to keep my hobby fun, and not hobbled down in businessy stuff.

Maybe I am, maybe I’m not. That’s just how I see these things.

You know, it’ s not even really about Nintendo itself, more what they represent to me. Nintendo is the video games industry I grew up with, the one that made me like video games. It wasn’t just them of course, but they are a good company to project that on.

Nintendo doing bad represents the shift in the game industry from the thing that I love, to something…. I don’t know, different. The industry has left behind the things that I enjoyed it for, the Nintendos, the Capcoms, the Segas, the Kanomis, etc….

Things are just different now, and I don’t really want to let go to what it used to be.

No, you misread me. The constant calls for Nintendo to change are what I was referring to.

News of Nintendo financials fine, it’s how they write it that is irritating. They always have the big splashy headline of “NINTENDO IS DOING TERRIBLE ZOMG”, and then it’s all about how crap they are.

Maybe I just want a few articles with big stupid headlines about their good things. Maybe I just want them to not revel in Nintendo’s mistakes.

With all the calls for Nintendo to go 3rd party, or to switch to phone games, it’s really hard to not feel like people are trying to take the Nintendo I enjoy away.

There’s not really any other way to take it.

Is there any real reason for a tech news site that focuses mostly on phones and Apple stuff to report on the financials of a video game only company?

Morning kids!

After my slight grumpy spell yesterday I’m back in my normal cheerful mood! /)^3^(\

I ended up getting a new washing machine yesterday, since my apartment couldn’t fix the old one. It’s much nicer! It was nice being able to finally finish my laundry too.

You know, considering EA’s temper tantrum over Nintendo not letting them run their online service, I could picture EA reducing support for Sony over this.

EA seems like just that kind of company.

I’m kind of glad it got made when it did. The raptors wouldn’t have been as intimidating if they’d been covered in feathers and 2 feet tall.

Well if they only got things correct then they would have never made it past trying to get enough DNA to clone things out of a dead bug.

Tis where my numbers came from too!

Even though I’ve changed user names since then I still tack 924 on the end.

I’m kind of tempted to change my Facebook profile pic to that just to see what people say.

You, didn’t watch it to see Jeff Goldblum Goldblum all over the screen?

And yes I’m using Goldblum as a verb, because verbs (like life) find a way.

I loved playing Portal 2 cross-platform between PC and PS3. I’d love to see more games do that between consoles.

Yeah. Stuff is shown so early these days that it’s hard to even know what the game is sometimes. I didn’t even dislike what I saw with Destiny, I just didn’t know enough to form a real opinion. When I was asked, “so how hyped are you at that trailer?”, my response was “not a lot honestly. They didn’t really show what the game was like, so I need to see more”.

Yes, Giga. I’m sorry.
