    Also, have you ever seen any of the portrait sheets from the original Grandia? They drew dozens of expressions for each character!

    That Twitter is lovely.

    My sole claim to early internet fame is a mention (from ECM!) in Gamefan's import review of Grandia for the Saturn. I wrote a translated script for it back in '98! I had the biggest crush on Feena...

    I've always felt like the first game would have been as fondly remembered as Lunar 1 and 2 if Vic Ireland had played nice and localized the proper version. His style suited Takeshi Miyaji's games really well for whatever reason, and it was such an incredible technical accomplishment on the Saturn. It still has one of my favorite battle systems ever and the Iwadare soundtrack is superb; maybe his best ever.

    Perhaps it's time for me to revisit it.

    Glad to hear Record Breaker is great, Finch! I Wanna dive a bit deeper... but the monsters... they need hunting...

    And the Pokemans need shuffling...

    Right now I only have Overclocked, although I do have the original version of 2 on the DS. I'm a huge Career Soft fan (the Langrisser/Growlanser guys), and a lot of their staff were picked up by Atlus back in 2004/2005 and put to work on the Devil Survivor games. Easily the most overlooked SRPG devs in Japan, imo.

    Record Breaker looks like a far more extensive remake than Overclocked. I really want to play it.

    I am playing DS2: Record Breaker! Monster Hunter 4 keeps stealing me back, but those two are my current commute games. How ya likin' it so far?

    bVork's got pretty good taste in games (if his Steam library is any indication), so that doesn't surprise me. Goodbye Despair is sitting on my shelf waiting to be played once I finish up a couple other Vita games. Freedom Wars is weirdly addictive!

    My stepdaughter just asked if we could play through both halves of Persona 2 over the summer together. So proud.

    Also, I've been thinking about requesting a name change. Back when I registered (mostly out of frustration), I didn't expect to actually participate here beyond the initial post, so "no one" seemed appropriate. I was just a lurking nobody to the regulars here.

    Lately I spend more time having conversations on profile pages than I do on the forums themselves. I'm pretty apathetic to shitty attitudes on the internet at this point in my life, but being told everything I like is terrible whenever I venture an opinion is draining. It's disappointing to see so many grown men espousing the same pointlessly caustic opinions I outgrew in middle school.

    Since you turned me on to Steins;Gate, I've been hopelessly addicted to visual novels. I suspect I'm single-handedly keeping JAST USA afloat right now. At the moment I'm making my way through Yume Miru Kusuri: A Drug That Makes You Dream. I don't play a lot of eroges, but this one is surprisingly well-written.

    It was obvious Sushio was involved about 30 seconds into the first episode. I love​ the character designs.

    Gaijinworks is announcing a new PSP game this week. I know it's not going to be Tengai IV, but I really want it to be Tengai IV.

    That Eikichi is pretty good!

    Yeah, I pulled the Duo out of storage and started playing around with some of my old games last weekend and ended up getting sucked into Fuun Kabuki Den all over again. I wish someone would have taken a chance on Tengai Makyou in the west; I've gotta think the PSP port of IV would have done okay over here given the setting.

    Red Company was so good in the 90s.

    There's something so weird about seeing anime characters hip-hop dancing to JDK Band synth pop. Gurumin is crazy charming, even for a Falcom game.

    Finch. Hey.

    You should totally be an animator.

    Rajyaki is the best.

    Even without going to the actual YouTube page (I subbed), I knew straight away that I was looking at a Finchie cartoon. Placing the white bowl under the frog as it "jumped" made me laugh - so clever! Some of the effects during that crazy ass ending looked pretty complex, too. Did you do all the voices and sound effects?

    I'm so glad you shared that with me. Thanks!

Snow Bike is Snow Bike

by Finch on 22 Dec 2011 at 03:37 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 08:01 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,

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 08:54 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"
