    I guess that depends on how much you're into low(ish) fantasy. All three games are extremely well-written and play with choice and branching paths in a way that's actually meaningful (compared to, say, Bioware). There's a lot of intrigue and gruff badass dudes and naughty bits with sorceresseseses.

    The first game can be skipped for a number of reasons, but the plot of Witcher 2 continues into the third game, making it a great place to start. It's also really cheap, so no major loss if it's not to your taste.

    I'd love to talk about it. It's an interesting and very fun game and there's a lot to say about the context of its release on Amiga (which is where it was most popular). There's an earlier game by the same name on BBC Micro that plays fairly differently (I'd almost liken it to the difference between Chack'n Pop and Bubble Bobble - a much harder, more puzzle-oriented experience), as well as a number of later versions (including GBA, a PC one you can still purchase, and various cellphones).

    I only have a crappy $20 mic, though. What do you guys use?

    Hi Finch, thanks for those pics. I love 'em. I actually bought the Ink Girl amiibo, my first one. Possibly my last. Crossing my fingers the Ika-chan DLC makes it over here.

    I do care about the PoPo farming game, but I'm not freaking out or anything. The charm of the PS1/PSP RPGs for me was in those wonderfully animated little 2D sprites all over the place, which of course are long gone in the 3DS game.

    I've been playing both versions of Devil Survivor 2 since 2012 and only just learned today that Kenji Ito did the OST. No wonder I like it so much.

    Or not! Searching for your name yields no results.

    Yeah, I just noticed all that this morning. Sorry!

    Actual ID is megabee79. I'll add you right now.
  8. I couldn't find you on the ID search! Try searching for my ID, "finchiekins".
    You have to check a box in the user profile to allow others to search your name and I think it defaults to "no".

    "Make a point to connect all these names to Nier and Drakengard 'Uh, okay, but there's no way this is actually–'"

    This made me laugh pretty hard. That's exactly what was going on in my head.

    I was so excited that I texted my wife at work to tell her about it, and she's barely aware Nier is a video game. That's the most excited I've ever been about anything ever.

    1.) Nier was the big one, because it was absolutely out of nowhere and just kept getting more amazing the more I learned about it. That Platinum is involved just blows my mind. I can still barely believe it!
    2.) Final Fantasy VII, obviously. Overall I think SE completely dominated E3 this year. I was really only expecting to see Bravely Second, FFXV and maybe Kingdom Hearts III. I'm happy to see there's some life in them yet.
    3.) Miyazaki returning for Dark Souls III
    4.) That crazy Transformers G1 game
    5.) Last Guardian didn't really wow me, but I was happy to see it's still being worked on.
    6.) SMT X Fire Emblem really looks better than it has any right to. It's so weird how they've incorporated bits of Fire Emblem into what is otherwise the most Atlus-looking game I'm ever seen. Can't wait to see how extensive it really is.
    7.) MOTHER 1! Please let 3 be next...

    There are so many amazing alternatives to the classic Metroid games out there now that I'm a little baffled at the vitriol directed towards Federation Force. I think it looks really fun. Star Fox Zero looks interesting, too; I couldn't help but chuckle at the GERWALK Arwing in the trailer. Nintendo really does have some of the shittiest fans in gaming.

    Oh. :P I've never even heard of LINE! I'll download it and get it all set up so we can message tomorrow. Sounds fun.

    Oh my god SE's conference.



    Despite TNL's old man bitching, I kinda liked some of the stuff Nintendo showed.

    Yes! I'm on sporadically at weird hours most nights, so message away.

    Yes! The second game is a bit more forgiving than the first, but I think it's universally understood that the original Dark Souls is the better game. The lore and overall aesthetic are exceedingly sad and grim; I've honestly never played anything that so successfully conveyed a sense of decay and hopelessness. So of course Demon's Souls was right in my wheelhouse before I even played it. The community features are also really neat, even if you aren't ordinarily into that kind of thing.

    The series has a reputation for being difficult, but I think more than anything else you just need patience. A cool head and methodical pace are more than enough to have fun with it. They were my favorite games last gen after Nier and Drakengard 3!

    Some of these are outright beautiful.

    Thanks Finchie! My haul this year included Record Breaker and some eShop cards. Have you played Attack of the Friday Monsters?

    I think I'm going to buy a Wii U this summer. It's the only console this gen I have any interest in (mostly because it's the only one that seems to be trying). Splatoon looks so fun...

Snow Bike is Snow Bike

by Finch on 22 Dec 2011 at 04:37 PM
A few years ago i got some big old snow tires for my bike. They're extra fat and they're studded, so they do a pretty good job. Usually i can trudge through the worst storms with aplomb. I've lost traction a few times but as of yet, on a snowy or icy surface, i have not fallen over with these tires, and only once have i had to get off my bike because i couldn't grip the ground. Sure, i've wrecked on a dry sandy road, slipped on grass, even gotten a sprained knee from slipping in a puddle on a warm

Fixies SUCK!

by Finch on 19 Aug 2010 at 09:01 PM
Why do people hate fixies so much but give single speed bikes a free pass? Why are hipsters associated with fixies, when there are enough purple bikes with neon-green Deep-V with gold freewheel hubs to completely disassociate hipsters with fixed gears? Mostly it's people being ignorant. It's fun to be a dumbass when everyone else is doing it, but sometimes... sometimes... don't you wish you had something you could care about without everyone making fun of it? If you don't want to be a stupid asshole,

CARS VS. CYCLISTS! FIGHT!

by Finch on 25 Jun 2010 at 12:16 PM
This morning i drove by myself for the first time in over a year. Now i feel all aggressive and mad! I remember why i used to scream all the time and drive recklessly: when i want to get angry, there's not a satisfying outlet. A few twitches and i could ruin someone's life pretty bad, but on my bike, i really have to put effort into getting angry. A quick sprint will get it all out.
Now while you're fuming over what this stupid ass cyclist thinks he knows about driving, what do you hate about

Work laziness

by Finch on 21 Jun 2010 at 09:54 PM
Being that i'm the only employee where i work, sometimes i'm the only person actually at work. On most days, i go about what i'm supposed to do, interspersed with Facebook time and email time, and sometimes playing vidya games time.
There are also some days where work isn't particularly busy or i can't fill orders because of missing supplies, so i don't work as much and spend more time on doing things that aren't valuable at all. On these days, i reflect it by writing down "2 hour break"
