So I've been playing Runescape again for the first time in like... a year. The amount of effort Jagex puts into constantly updating that game is both commendable and slightly frightening. I mean, it had only been a year since the last time I logged on (maybe less, I'm not really sure), but I feel like every other thing I saw was either completely new or updated in some way. Anyways, Runescape may not be as popular as WoW (and is probably of lower quality realistically), but I actually enjoy playing it more for whatever reason (probably because none of my friends play World of Warcraft). Also, the writing in Runescape is pretty awesome; the quests in that game are easily better than in any other MMO I've ever played (not that I've played a whole lot, but you get the point). But yeah, I'll probably be playing Runescape for at least the next few weeks (against my better judgement, believe me), and if you want to chat me up in that, feel free. My screen name's Teh Flan, though I don't imagine that would have taken too long to figure out. Well, the space in there may have tripped you up some, but whatever.
On an unrelated note, horses are pretty cool, and I have never played Gallop Racer (unfortunately).
Good Luck Have Cabbage,
Teflon- er, I mean TehFlan. Yeah, let's go with that one.
And by lots of video games, I mostly mean an RPG I had never heard of before that a friend of mine showed me while I was at his house. We were hanging out and looking for a game for me to play when he pulled out the box for Grandia III. I had never heard of it and he hadn't played any of it yet. Apparently the reason he bought it was that it was a two-disk game, and he sees that as being a decent indicator of a good RPG. He wasn't wrong. Not only does Grandia III have one of the most random (and awesome) opening cutscenes I have ever seen (seriously, look it up on youtube or something), it has a battle system (that I had to wait for an hour to experience) that I have enjoyed more than any other RPG in a while. Everyone involved in a battle is put on a timer, and depending on which moves you use and when you use them, you can cancel opponent's moves, send them flying into the air, or unleash a bunch of devastating aerial combos. Basically, the game does a really good job at making you feel like a total badass while still manage to be a significant challenge. To give you an idea of how much I enjoyed this game, I played it for 7 and a half hours in two sittings during about a 16 hour period (and I was sleeping for 7-8 hours during that time as well). The story seems pretty uninteresting (at least at the point in the game I'm at, which isn't far), but the characters are cool. Yuki (the main character) dreams of becoming a pilot, and I think he's voiced by Johnny Yong Bosch. Anyways, if you haven't played this game, you should try and find it, because it's good.
I also played some Infinity Blade and am in the process of EV training a Shroomish and Pokemon Black. And that was my Friday.
