@zippdementia It's like, "Hmm, go to the cellar of the blacksmith's house in the ruined village to get something...whoops! RUN AWAY!" and then repeat the RUN AWAY part for the next 15 things I try, as well. One day, I'll make real progress, I hope.
Rob Hamilton @overdrive02:00 PM
@zippdementia Followed by, "After killing the slime-critter here, I just had to retreat and spend a night at the inn. Keep on keepin' on, I guess!"
Rob Hamilton @overdrive01:59 PM
@zippdementia Yeah. In a way, it's like a puzzle where you have to figure out how to survive by the method of "I went to this area and a 'Thug' butchered me, so I should try a different direction, I guess".
Rob Hamilton @overdriveAug 25, 2014
@overdrive And also did two more checkpoints in Amazing Princess Sara's Dark Castle. And then got to a long climb via jumping from block to block. After a while, a ghost that behaves just like a SMB Boo gets involved. And then things get a bit tense.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveAug 25, 2014
Sped through most of January in Persona 3. Just have a couple days and then the final fights. Hopefully it goes smoothly (I have about 10 homiculouses, so that's in my favor) because I can't take anymore.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveAug 24, 2014
And, damn, Amazing Princess Sarah is getting tough. Made it to the first save point in Dark Castle and decided to call it a night, so I can go to bed with normalish blood pressure tonight.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveAug 24, 2014
In Persona 3, I made it to the top of Tartarus with over 20 days to spare. Now I just have to decide at L83, if I want to do things like fight the Reaper and get a couple more levels or just end this thing ASAP. That's the beauty of having two saves.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveAug 23, 2014
@overdrive And finished the night sort of wandering around Eschalon Book 1 looking for stuff that I can kill, instead of the other way around.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveAug 23, 2014
@overdrive Made it past the next-to-last Tartarus boss (Floor 244) in Persona 3. FINALLY, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel...
Rob Hamilton @overdriveAug 23, 2014
Did the first two levels of The Amazing Princess Sarah. First one was a breeze. Then the Ice Castle gradually turned into pure platform death. Brought back memories of Mega Man, as long and precise-timey that eternally long jumping section was.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveAug 23, 2014
@pickhut $30 for a remake of an old Genny game? Damn!
Rob Hamilton @overdriveAug 20, 2014
@jerec @JoeTheDestroyer @pickhut I don't follow him on Twitter, but people who do occasionally retweet his rants. I appreciate angry people bringing me amusement, so I hope he never quits being him.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveAug 06, 2014
In recent days' Skyrim re-play stuff, I'm doing quests and clearing dungeons. I'd like to go through every location in the game that can be cleared, although I might get bored with things before that, since there are a ton of them.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 30, 2014
@honestgamer @JoeTheDestroyer If you do, you need to review it using the same Engrish the translators did when porting it to America. Twas a fun game...but there were areas the dialogue was so bad, I was clueless as to what was going on.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 28, 2014
In Skyrim, got to the point in the Companions plot where you can become a werewolf and, thus, are now immune to disease. And now, it's time for the great dungeon scouring of 2014!
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 26, 2014
@Ben @Germ @JoeTheDestroyer Ben, I agree with that. It's the primitive polygonal 3D, I think. I remember playing Wild Arms 2 a couple years back and thinking I'd rather look at 16-bit sprites than that game's rough, blocky polygons.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 26, 2014
So far in Skyrim, I'm starting work in both the Thieves Guild (good for boosting stealth) and Companions (good for becoming immune to annoying diseases) and will be in the Brotherhood whenever I decide to sleep.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 26, 2014
@Suskie Looks like I'll have to upgrade the computer. Which won't be a big hassle soon, but my current Mac is about 2 OS behind its requirements (10.8.5 is needed; I have 10.6.8).
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 22, 2014
In the Skyrim re-play, I've been to all the major places in the main continent except Winterfell. Tried that last night and got butchered by two Snow Bears. Good thing magic falls below both stealth and power in my pecking order.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 18, 2014
In Skyrim, going through the northern towns. Hit up Morthal and Dawnstar and did the dungeon where you're supposed to get the horn of Jurgan Windfinder and the Dawnstar Vaermina quest (did it to get the Daedra artifact achievement this time).
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 18, 2014
@Suskie @zippdementia I am now intrigued.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 15, 2014
Wandering around Skyrim still before I focus on stuff. Up to the northern reaches to hit up Morthal, Dawnstar and Winterhold, at which point I'll have been through every non-Solistheim town besides a couple settlements.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 14, 2014
@zippdementia Maybe one year, I'll get back to trying to beat BG 2. I was doing pretty good (in the Spellhold dungeon)...and then my computer totally crashed and that was that.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 09, 2014
More going through Skyrim. Advanced main quest to where I'm going to the Greybeards and did a few sidequests.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 08, 2014
@Suskie @Never3ndr Since it's one of the many games in my backlog, I damn better like it! Which is about all I have to add to this conversation. Carry on, peeps!
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 06, 2014
Played a lot more Skyrim over the last couple days. Mainly doing quests around Windhelm and Riften and also joined the Dawnguard to start that expansion.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 05, 2014
Played a lot of Skyrim today, mainly doing stuff around Whiterun and then Windheim. Be a while before I get into the Companions stuff, since their first job for me takes me to a Falmer cave with those Chariru things. Too tough for now.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 03, 2014
@joseph_valencia I am. Going as a Khajiht (sp). Did the intro stuff, Bleak Fall Barrow and the shortish mine that's near the town you come out in after the intro.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 03, 2014
@overdrive While apparently trying to find ways to avoid having vampires kill everyone in the towns, from what I've read.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 03, 2014
Decision for today: Do I continue to work on games I'm playing to review...or download all of Skyrim's DLC to start that long-awaited second trip through?
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 01, 2014
Played a bit of Eschalon Book 1 while drunkenly house-sitting tonight. Got to L2 and am gradually feeling like I'm capable of making a bit of progress. Which might be good in this game. Not easy to get your guy off the ground.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 30, 2014
@overdrive And closed the night by beating Robo Aleste's final stages.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 30, 2014
Got through Crocomire in Super Metroid and then made it to the next dungeon in Heracles no Eikou and ground for a bit there, so the enemies won't be TOO annoying hopefully. Also have started Eschalon Book 1, but haven't gotten too far.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 26, 2014
In Persona 3, I made it to and defeated World Balance. Hit hard with spells, but easy to outlast. Helped that his Mamudoon didn't hit anyone.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 26, 2014
Wound up making a few Steam buys last night. The three Eschalons, the two Avadons and Avernum: Escape from the Pit. Six RPGs for $22; not a bad haul.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 25, 2014
Last night, I was out drinking at a friend's, but after he and his wife went to bed, I broke out the 3DS and beat the Grand Lizzier in Dragon Quest IX and made it to the next place, which seems to be an expy of Harry Potter-land.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 23, 2014
@overdrive And also finished Ryuu's quest in Burning Heroes and started Roga's. Which seems to follow the exact same path. This game is one joy after another...
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 23, 2014
In Deus Ex Human Revolution, I'm still exploring Detroit looking for XP. Finished the quest to bail out the dude who was blackmailed to give drugs to someone and got one to bring down a crooked cop. So I'm continuing to explore around.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 22, 2014
@overdrive Also started my work to train to L7 in Tactics Ogre after getting back to home base to get next mission. And beat Grecliff to bring back birds in Terranigma. Damn, those little bird enemies there were pains to deal with.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 22, 2014
In Robo Aleste, beat two more stages, so I'm on the way to Astaros, now. Apparently dude forgot all about the evil brother he was supposed to be going after or is just saving that for later.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 21, 2014
@overdrive Finished the night by playing SMT IV a bit. Beat the demon guarding the entrance to the Counter Demon Force place now that I've crossed the river.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 21, 2014
@overdrive Then got all the new equipment in Gleeba in DQ IX and made it through the dungeon to the boss. Then remembered I hadn't saved and had no intention of doing all the buying and selling again, so I warped out and saved.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 21, 2014
@overdrive Then got 3 more stars in Super Mario Galaxy (last regular one in Freezeflame, first in the desert one and the Bigmouth Galaxy. Then batteries in control died, so I broke out the charger/battery pack I bought a little ways back.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 21, 2014
Made my first run at the third boss in the final block of Tartarus in Persona 3. Enemies here can eat up your magic quickly; I'll be looking forward to when they start avoiding me. But reached L78, so I could fuse Saturnus and Vishnu.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 21, 2014
I'd almost forgotten about the Summer Steam Sale. Might have to buy something or other before the end of the month. But not today. Too lazy.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 20, 2014
Played through Deus Ex: Human Revolution through hacking through stuff at Sarif and then finding places to hack through in various local apartments. Good times!
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 20, 2014
@Suskie @jerec @Germ I'd agree with one of them. MINE.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 17, 2014
@zippdementia @zippdementia @Suskie Having fun with that one, but I liked all of those Quintet/Enix games from that era.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 14, 2014
@overdrive Also made it through another mountain pass in Heracles no Eikou III and made it to the next town. Enemies are just annoying as hell in this game with status effects and calling allies. I think I've complained about that before.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 14, 2014
@overdrive And played Super Metroid up through where you get the high-speed booster.
