Party Time (Excellent)

2010-12-13

Oh we have such sights to show you!  Well, mostly Joe.  I had nothing to do with this.  Big ups to the man for his hard work on the site and for making it look even better.  And even more sassy.  

So some things to bring to your attention.  I've finally finished Final Fantasy 12.  At least the main story arc and when a dry spell hits (though with the backlog I'm rocking right now I don't know if such a spell will ever creep up) I'll go back and finish up the rest of the hunts and maybe snag the final Espers and such.  Putting them now in order of favorites - though mind you I'm on the final disc of FF8 and I am still hating it/stuck - we have:  9, 6, 12, 4, 7, 13, 3, 8, 2, 1.  I've never played 5 and as 11 and 14 are MMOs, I don't believe those count.  I'd like to try out X-2 and over the holidays I may snag FF XII Reverent Wings for the DS to continue the story but that will come later.  For now, I just need to finish 8 and I don't know if that's going to happen.  Perhaps.

Alpha Protocol is growing on me.  Warts and all I'm enjoying my time with it and while that may be thanks to the five dollar price tag, I'm okay with that.  It's still pretty awkward in most aspects but as I level/power-up the stealth aspects are getting easier.  The enemies either detect you either too easily or don't see you in any capacity with zero middle ground which can be frustrating but the illusion holds well enough now that I have more abilities and skills at my disposal.  I'm feeling more like a secret agent (having gone the spy route rather than guns-blazing) and the different relationships of the game are interesting enough.  It's just fun enough to make me keep coming back, like a terrible movie (Skyline!) that's just fun unnecessarily.  Sure I'm frustrated by aspects and I've played loads of better titles but I've certainly played worse too.  There's a decent game underneath and when it works it works quite well but the pieces don't help that along too easily.

Enjoy 200.  Doesn't seem like we should have reached that mark just yet but here we are.  Enjoy the layout to boot.  Hug a Joe.

Congratulations Mr. Blue!

It doesn't seem like we should be at #200 yet. It feels like we're still warming up. But in honor of the big 2-0-0 and to give proper respect to the coming of Malbalgona, the site has been revamped! There's still a lot coming, but a lot of the features people have been asking for are here. Most notably, the ability to travel between storylines, and comment on individual strips.

I'm sure we'll be working out the bugs as we go - but most of the heavy lifting stands here before you complete.

If you're new to the site - WELCOME. We have such sights to show you.
