Playing games  
Stayed up way too late playing GalCiv last night =P

Got to sleep about 6:30, and Morna called a little after 8:30 cause her ride to work flaked out on her. We stopped at Del Taco for breakfast, well, she had breakfast, i didn't get anything cause i was planning on going back to sleep when i got home. I did steal a few tator tots from her, although some of the tator tots were well disguised as fries :)

When i got home i didn't really feel like sleeping anymore, so i started playing GalCiv again. Played it on and off today, and got back into FFTA as well :)

I've been having fun stripping people naked, especially now that Marche has the ability to rip thoughts out of people's heads :)

I wasn't quite prepared for the fight with Llednar in the Present Day mission. I expected to have the chance to change Marche's abilities between the first half and the second half, so he went up with against Llednar without any healing abilities.

Luckily i had an angel ring equiped. Even more luckily, i didn't need it. Llednar's first attack missed, and then i stole his sword :) The rest of his attacks kind of sucked after that, so i proceded to finish stripping him naked and then put him to sleep with a lucky Bad Breath and just sat there making fun of him until Cid showed up to end the fight :)

I'm also very amused that breaking people out of prision doesn't seem to be against the rules. If you get caught the guards will try to stop you, and a Judge will show up to make sure you don't break the rules while fighting the guards, but the Judge doesn't care that you're trying to break out the people the Judge presumably put in there in the first place :)

So i stripped all the guards naked, knocked them all out, and waltzed out with the prisoner under the Judge's eyes.

Okay, so i got up at about 8:30 am after two hours of sleep, it's 11:30 pm now, and i'm not tired. WTF?
Current Mood: geekygeeky

Karaoke Revolution!
Have you played it yet? Huh? Huh?

rlpowell bought it last night and it's wicked cool!!! It's really fun and the graphics are enormously better than in DDR. I was skeptical about the weird system they use to indicate pitch and timing (I can sight-read music, so I was peeved at first that they didn't just do regular music writing), but it works pretty well and it's satisfying when you get it right. rlpowell has some issues with adjusting his pitch and this thing is going to help him nail it. I'm finding I'm not so great with steady pitch m'self and I think it will help me sing better overall. And the songs in the initial package are reasonably good and mostly timely. Luckily, it seems that there will be additional song releases instead of having to buy the game over again, like DDR.

Oh! Oh! And I got to try eye toy in the store and wow! I so want one!

Nope, not tried it yet. I'm vaguely curious, but i suck at singing, so... :)

The eye-toy seems a little gimicky to me, haven't actually tried it yet though.

I'm still not terribly familiar with the FFTA systems, but in any FF-ish system the prospect of stripping someone naked and then Bad-Breathing them strikes me as wonderfully wrong and amusing.

I recently learned Bad Breath in FFX-2, I should use it on someone... But more importantly I finally got my damn Mascot dresspheres, so I'll be playing with them for a while.

So, is Cid slightly less god-like in FFTA than in FFT?

Well, depends on how you look at it. He's one of the people from the real world, where he's Mewt's father and kind of a loser. In Ivalice Cid is the head Judge, so for all practical purposes he is effectively the head god :)

You can get him to join you if you beat all 300 mission (i think less than 200 are necessary to beat the game) at which point i'm not quite sure what you use him for. Needless to say he has kick ass abilities. To quote the faq:

" - Abate - Skips judge's turn once to allow violation. (32 MP)
- Judge sword - Slash to damage and steal JP.
- Bind - Immoblizes and disables target for arrest. (16 MP)
- JP Gift - Give own JP to a deserving friend.
- Yellow Clip - Nullifies a yellow card from record. (8 MP)"
