As we all know, this is the locale where all the cool cat FAQers hang out and post about their current labors of love. The few, the proud, the FAQers!

Anyway, Lunar 2 Eternal Blue for me...maps n' stuff. /brevity

Doing a large amount of reading and research prior to whipping something up for Hoshigami Remix for the Nintendo DS

Finally finished Lunar 2, after about a month and a week. Now onto my main nemesis: Arc the Lad 2.

It looks like a really great FAQ, shotgunnova. I had started one forever ago that was super-detailed and awesome, but I got derailed. Now I don't have to bother. Good job!

I hope you continue writing FAQs like this for a long time to come. You really do good work.

C'mon, man, no formalities! I'm Shotty. :P

But yeah, took awhile but the game was fun so it wasn't that boring or anything. I'm interested in seeing your take if y'ever finish it, though, since that Gurumin guide was pretty swiz, too.

Aside: is your avatar Tina Fey?

My avatar is Tina Fey, yes. Bluberry and I were chatting once about girls with glasses, and of course he linked a picture of Tina Fey (required for any online discussion of girls with glasses). I thought "Wow, that's the best picture of her that I've ever seen" so I cut out a 100x100 square for my avatar and the rest is history.

As for Lunar 2, I don't plan to finish the FAQ. It was a huge project and I don't have time for that now. I'd rather write for newer games, on those rare occasions where I FAQ at all. I'm glad you liked the Gurumin one, but I just don't have it in me to keep writing any with that level of depth. It rocks that people like you do, but I'm more of the reviewer sort.

Doesn't mean I won't write more FAQs, though... I seem to write a few each year.

Of course, the positioning in the snapshot is just wrong.

In other news, nearing completion. Hopefully I shall get it done by the night of the 14th. I want that bounty, damnit (and before June).

Tina Fey <3

I plan on getting the PSX Hoshigami one of these days. Heard it was really annoying and difficult. Would've done the DS bounty myself but man, those emulators ain't too useful. The only game I've gotten to run at a semi-reasonable pace is Izuna the Unemployed Ninja. =/

I have been thinking about picking up a flash card for whenever the bounties turn to some of the rarer/super new DS games, but for now, I am perfectly content to use my own collection/leech off others temporarily.

As for the DS Hoshigami, it has three difficulty modes, the Hard one being the original PSX's (only) difficulty, so you may still want to get the DS Hoshigami instead (that and you will still be contributing moolah to the guys who produced it if you get a new copy). It is still frustratingly long to FAQ, though; the main walkthrough is not that bad (and since I have beaten it already on Normal, I am going through it on easy), but there are so many side sections that it is taking me forever to get through it.

New version going up tomorrow. From the time that I had this weekend, I managed to chip away at about a third of the game and add on 90KB.

Damn work that keeps coming up.

Another two to four hours and I could be done this walkthrough. Grr.

This thread can't die -- it's like the Highlander, remember? Anyway, God of War crap to me. I was mapping Pandora's Temple and realized I'd skipped a room, and had to do a 180-degree spin on it. Lame!

All threads in the database will now purge after a certain period of inactivity. The powers EmP abused delay that miserable end, but it's up to active posters to keep things going. Nothing is archived beyond around 30 days.

Onto Castlevania III, at least until I finish MOH European Assault or get Saiyuki Journey West in the mail.

Did a quicky with Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles. Not very much of a game, more of an interactive detective novels (which are short and not so hot at that).

If I have time, I might be inspired to do something up for Pokemon Mysterious Dungeon; $40 bounty for it on GameFAQs (the guy with a complete up there seems to be from Nauru, which isn't beneficial for claiming bounties) AND a free game from faqs.ign

Oh well, for now, work is consuming my soul.

FF Tactics A2 rough draft started. I might as well keep working on FF3 and Suikoden, also.

Take a seat, Castlevania III -- it's Saiyuki time! I'd consider doing MOH European Assault if my idiot comrades didn't lumber in front of a machine-gun nest and die within the first minute; or, disappear from the radar like a bunch of yellow-bellied wussbags.
