trickster: (05) apparently a real thing? I'm kinda surprised.

Not much data on it other than achievements, a cash shop, and cloud saves. I am very curious what the achievements are, the cash shop seems kinda useless to me, and cloud saves just makes me LOL for stupid, stupid reasons.

I do wish we could get info on whether the translation is redone/straightened out for this version. I'd buy it just for that, honestly. (FFT's new translation was so worth re-purchasing. I have no regrets.) If it's not fixed, then... eh. I'm not sure.

I'm playing Crisis Core for the first time.

I... I like it. The music, the graphics, the voice acting, Sephiroth, all that jazz. I'm only at the Modeoheim mission (ch. 5?), but it's been a pretty fun game so far.

This certainly makes all those times I've protested the existence of this game kinda awkward. /)_(\

It's true.

Well, first off, I'm glad I enjoyed FFX. I'm a little surprised they're re-doing a game that already looked fine on the PS2 instead of something else, though. (They don't want to do a fully remade FFIV? Square-Enix has been infatuated with FFIV, giving it a bunch of re-releases...) Then again, not only is it FFX's anniversary, but I'm pretty sure it was sold a lot when it was released. Probably a good idea to go for this one.

Anyway, I hope we get to see what it looks like sometime soon. ;A;

Yes, I am pointedly not mentioning an FFVII remake because HEY THIS IS FFX'S TURN RIGHT NOW. DON'T BE SUCH A SPOTLIGHT HOG, FFVII.

EDIT: Also why is Dissidia: Theatrhythm's gameplay so adorable alsdkfj the battles

It looks like I'll be able to do my internship early this year -- in fall instead of waiting 'til spring. That means I'll only have one class next semester, which gives me plenty of leeway to add on another class if it turns out I need another to graduate.

I'm very paranoid about this. I've fallen into the cracks of this university's system so many times I'm, like, on edge about another roadblock coming up. I've already gotten into a small panic over an upper division class that's supposed to count for general upper division credit, but isn't showing that way on the computer. I hope, hope, hope, hope it still counts (and my advisor said it would) but JUST IN CASE. Open schedule next semester. Gonna get it done, yes.

Been doing nothing but going back and playing Dissidia Duodecim again. I still haven't finished all of Cycle 13 yet, which is a shame for me. I just like to level everyone up to 30 before tackling the Impulse Shade chapters. (;A;) I also bought Prologus from the PSN store, which got me Aerith as an assist-only character. She's really useless, honestly, but oh well. My curiosity is satisfied. ...I also ended up buying some extra costumes for other characters. Four of them, I think.

Once again, Square-Enix gets the best of me. And my wallet. OTL

I can't stop smiling every time I see this video.

Dissidia Music Group (hand-drawn)

I can't find the same video on YouTube, so here's a link to the NicoViewer version. No registration necessary to view... I think. Let me know if it doesn't work -- I think there might be another alternative out there.

A little late, as I ended up falling asleep for most of the day. /)_(\

Heads up: GameStop is tossing OnLive coupons from Square-Enix's Deus Ex.

Employees were apparently ordered to open up new game boxes and remove the coupon. When contacted, GameStop admitted giving the orders and claimed it was because OnLive was a competing service and they didn't want to promote it. So they reached into new boxes and just. Took it out.

...yeah. Wow.

Does this spell legal trouble for GameStop (again)? Eh, maybe. Whether or not it does, anyone itching to get the game* should definitely buy it from somewhere else.

*I've heard the PC version was the best, btw.

EDIT: I've since read that GameStop has pulled the PC version from their shelves in a sort of 'recall'. Square-Enix seems to be relatively calm about this, probably because they really didn't let GameStop know about the coupon beforehand and it's an admittedly damning move. Had GameStop known, perhaps they wouldn't have sold copies of the game in the first place. S-E could probably take some blame for this whole drama, too.

Still. GameStop should've, you know, not sold the game instead of breaching consumer trust by reaching in and pilfering coupons from new boxes. That simple.

This article sums it up best.
