It's been probably about a week, and it's still hard to believe the divorce thing. :/ Oh well. Gotta get used to it sooner or later.

To take my mind off things, I've been doing the following things in the following order:
~~Forgetting my work schedule and coming in the wrong day
~~Playin Disgaea (Akuma was playing FFTA and I wanted to play a strat game, too. Made me want my Disgaea)
~~Playing FFTactics Advance (Akuma wanted to link up. The cartridge only has 2 save slots, and we usually use more than one. We couldnt' share this game, so I bought one for myself. This way, I get to play it too, and we get to link together)
~~Playing Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles. I have 12-15 hours on it, and I'm afraid I'm getting dangerously close to the end. It's not bad. It's really different from any other FF game. I'm having fun with it, even though it looks like it might be a little short. The way they designed the multiplayer interface is REALLY cool, though. It has a cool plot, nice characters, and neat things to do. The graphics look spectacular. The gameplay is great, and switching between items and spells while moving is super-easy. Everyone hates it.
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The short version:
The world is engulfed in a toxic space fart that kills people who are exposed to it. To protect yourself, you have a huge trippy space crystal in the middle of the village, but if it stops shining, the fart will take over your village and kill everyone. You have to join a caravan to get the magical purifying goo to smear all over the crystal and protect your village from the space fart for another year. You carry a mini-trippy-crystal in your cart next to the giant round hippo-thing and search for magic-goo. This keeps the space fart away while you are running around looking for the goo.
This alone is really cool for multi-player games, because it gives your entire party incentive to stay together, and you get less people fighting over which direction they want to go in. The space fart is toxic. It's all around you, and it will kill you if you don't stay around your mini trippy crystal :P

In any case.. it's pretty darn cool, and I'd like to play it in multiplayer mode some time. Oh yeah.. the other cool thing about multiplayer- Each person plays on a GBA/GBA SP. All your menu crap is handled there, so you don't slow down the party on the main screen. It sounds really cool. Can't wait to try it.

final fantasy crystal chronicles is pretty cool.. haven't been able to try the multiplayer.. but looking forward to that too.
haven't played disgaea, as much as i want to, i might wait for la pucelle.. i think that's what it's called. do you all have an xbox?.. knights of the old republic is just way damn awesome! :D

yeah. I loved KotOR. I haven't played through it on the dark side yet.
I have PS2, GC, Xbox, etc... but the XBox is pretty much always dusty. Last thing we bought for it was that D&D game, and Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance II.. and we haven't been playing them much.

Have they announced that they're bringing La Pucelle over? You know Disgaea runs on the same battle engine, but it's a different world. (There are secret characters you can get from the other games, though.. Like Marjoly)
At the time Disgaea was released, Atlus said they had no plans to localize any of the La Pucelle games yet.

hmm well i was looking at our updated release list today.. (stupid halo 2 moving to october.... 10 people a day ask about that game, damnit)
i'm pretty sure la pucelle was there, i'll have to double check it.
haven't finished kotor yet, but i'm already well into the dark side :D

Ahh. La Pucelle: Tactics XD I found what you are talking about

I didn't know about that!

But trust me... Disgaea is awesome. It's a totally different game thatn La Pucelle, so it seems kind of unfair to say "Well.. I'll just wait for this new one" :P Disgaea should be cheaper since it's been out longer anyway

aha,.. well then looks like i'll have to try both. :D i don't think it's cheaper yet.. but i'll just rent it several times like with kotor.. (free rentals you know :P)

You sure about that? :O Your characters can get up to level 9999. I have nearly 80 hours in the game, and my strongest character is only level 75!
Cryokineticcryokinetic on February 15th, 2004 09:24 am (UTC)
HOLY CRAP.... that's alot of levels.....
.. what the hell can you do at lvl 9999,.... kill the final boss by looking at him?
HIDE your facekyonomiko on February 15th, 2004 09:31 am (UTC)
actually, at 75 I beat the final boss. You have to be over level 4000 to kill the optional extra boss. :O
Cryokineticcryokinetic on February 15th, 2004 01:42 pm (UTC)
4000.. that's quite a time investment.....
... where's that gameshark :P

you've done this?... how long did it take?.. or is it just guess that the game would be too easy?
