Happy times!
February 02, 2011

So, we're under a L2 snow emergency here in north-central Ohio and I get the day off work! Even better, it seems that (at least for the time, knock on wood) my internet is working good after two days of service so slow that I was wondering if I'd magically reverted to dial-up. That means RotW will be done today...unless it goes bad again. But first, it's time to fry fish. Which means I need to wash dishes.

Last night, I was playing Star Ocean: The Last Hope. As EmP and others who've played this game know, you often need to have plenty of time to invest in this game, as dungeons are LONG and save points are rare (like at the entrance and right before the boss). I'd actually been stalled in front of the Purgatorium for a week or two, as I didn't feel like devoting a whole night to one dungeon.

But last night, I was home and going nowhere, so I decided...LET'S DO THIS!!! And I did. Purgatorium completed. But not without a scare. A large amount of Ohio is currently without power and for a bit, I thought I was going to be among that number. The lights flickered twice...enough to restart my computer, but fortunately not enough to affect the 360 or TV (ran choppy for a bit, but that was it).

At this point, I'd been playing for a good 2+ hours since last seeing a save point. That would have been the sort of setback that put Last Hope on the "two-year hiatus" plan. But it didn't happen, so JOY!!!

I've had that happen when I got knee-deep in a mission on Lost Planet, only it was the mischievous cat trying to get behind the bookshelf and knocking the power cord off. That one wasn't a near miss, it was a direct hit. Not as bad as losing progress on SO. Congrats on dodging that bullet.
