Good news: Dribble Fountain is finished. Bad news: I'm lost trying to find the second labyrinth. Backtracking to Oasis Town to regroup.

We beat the Spring Yard lookalike, forget the name. Also the last act of the Marble lookalike (Dark Fortress?) I'd LOVE to play Sonic XG, but I think they just abandoned it in favor of the Sonic 1/2 remakes for Android. Not a ROM? Is it like an exe or something? I still have yet to get a couple of my Sonic hacks working, even on the Shield Portable. I think the one I can't get working is...South Island Adventure? Or Mobius Adventures? I forget which one it was.

I wonder if I got a PS TV if I could keep my Vita unhacked and just use a throwaway account on the PSTV since I won't need to play any of my actual games on there. Pretty much the only reason I might play Vita games on there is for streaming purposes, and I might be able to find a way around that. I haven't actually played my Shield TV in some time, mostly been playing FFV and Pokemon hacks on my Shield Portable. The fast forward button is great for JRPGs.

I've never actually heard of a CE not including the game itself before, I think. Somehow I managed to get the Sonic Mania CE, even though I woke up probably 4 hours after it went up on Amazon. I'm not sure if they announced it on Twitter till a couple days after, though, which is kind of odd, but I've noticed Sega seems to do that a lot, like for Valkyria Chronicles and Yakuza 0 too. The DC repros boot up fine, and people have reported wildly different things re hurting the laser. I know a guy who played burned games a lot back in the day with a launch DC, and his still runs fine. I mean, you'd think a used DC would had to have been used to play burned games at one point or another, and it runs great. I only have one disc that refuses to boot, and I think that's just cause it was poorly made (Disc 1 of that game has its own problems, mainly not being the advertised game), and the case broke in the mail, so who knows it that's why it doesn't work. I emailed the guy last night about it, so we'll see what happens. I buy a lot of stuff there, so I doubt he'll be mad or whatever.

We used the d pad on the PS4 controllers. I refuse to use analog sticks for 2D games, it never ever ends well. But somehow we still managed to get all 14 emeralds, so...It could've been worse.

I'm following the Pokemon Prism account on Facebook, so I doubt I'll let it slip by. At worst, I can just download it when I get off work that day...but I haven't even checked if that day is a weekend.

I started back to work Tuesday, with a pay raise apparently

I envy you, at my work there's almost only sitting and working in AutoCAD Civil and HEC-RAS.
And about my collection - my main problem is magazine, that i'm buying every month, since '98, just to read about software and hardware. In every one of them they give some games - from 1 to 5 titles (like in this month), that i'll never play - but still, until i'll get rid of them (done 2 times already - more that 50 cds each time :P) i will mark them as unplayed.
Your collection is bigger and you have more completed games - that's a level' that i'm going to reach :D
Good job and good luck :D

It's quite long - but some laptops run even longer. Like my old Dell laptop, eight years old and still working
All it needed was a replacement battery.

Your new computer probably has Windows 10 I assume? Huge downstep to Windows 7, in look, functionality, and bugginess.

No, I chose my team because I thought my best German friend was on the same team as me. But he's actually on Team Mystic.
I still sometimes wish I was on Valor or Mystic instead - maybe they'll offer to change the team sometime. (Then again, I guess this would leave Instinct with 1% of all players, while Mystic has 60% and Valor has 39%, so maybe not a good idea after all ). But eh, I guess it's special to be on Yellow

I know that, but how if there are no Gyms you can keep for more than a few hours until someone else takes over? My strongest Pokemon is <1000 CP and every small kid here has a stronger Pidgeot, or even a Gyarados, Lapras or Dragonite.
And today, when I finally found a YELLOW gym for once, it had the wrong typing. Because the first Pokemon was a water-type I couldn't use my strongest Pokemon which is a Flareon... and my strongest Grass-type was 300 CP lower. Since you can only take one Pokemon to training, unlike a battle over a Gym where six Pokemon are allowed, I was soon kicked out ungracefully.

I've also seen a Level 10 Gym today... It was, again, Mystic-led. Crazy stuff. People here are so advanced I can't keep up and have a huge disadvantage over the others. Sometimes I just wanna cry. ;-;

Well, I've never seen one of my OC's with a kite and I'd really love that as an avatar for the autumn. Maybe, when winter arrives, we can talk about your idea again.
You don't know any artists around here (besides Gioku, who I don't wanna bug again after asking her out for months on my banner ), do you? Nobody I know on DeviantArt seems to have open commissions right now.

It was harder than the orignal for sure, mainly because you can't heal as much as you can in the original game. While you can fully restore your health twice in the original, you can only do it once here. Also, there was no invincibility Arcana, so I striggled some more too. It might just as well be my fault though, I stuck with the original bomb combination and the Float Burst for the whole game

Part of it is that I can tell that they actually respect me, though that's kinda weird for me; I'm not used to that. I don't usually get a lot of shit via e-mail, at least not for long; I was given a facility that was just fucking DONE with us, and I turned them around completely. I resolved issues that they'd had since two thousand fucking fifteen, and they actually sent a letter to my supervisor telling her how much they love having me as their biller. They ask a ton of questions, and since I have 17 years of pharmacy experience under my belt, I can answer them without consulting a pharmacist. I actually have a lot of "problem" facilities that just love me, but what can I say? I'm a freak magnet. Give me your goths; your misfits; your huddled masses of outcasts. I'm almost like the freak Statue of Liberty, 'cept the bitch wears sandals; I do not.

Well, honestly, I didn't find the Mode7 in Golden Sun's introduction to be terribly impressive; maybe there were some good examples of it later on that I don't remember. Honestly, if I were asked for a GBA game that makes great use of Mode7, I'd say Sigma Star Saga, even if falling into pits looks cheesy as hell; the scorpions on the Desert Planet are fantastically done. I don't know; my version of Kirby's Adventure runs just fine as it is, and I don't really own a 3DS; I just borrow my lady's, as she does with my PSP. Oh, you didn't offend me; I live just fine without being able to see depth, and I really don't care about smell.

It's next up, so sayeth the Fortune Cookie, so I'll be playing it soon. If I don't get to it tonight, it'll be great for on the train that I'll be riding for 24 hours. I don't expect it to be better than the original, but I can't imagine they fucked it up, so I'm pretty excited; I've had some real bombs on GBA lately.

Well, of the levels on the site that I sent to you, I've sampled a fairly small portion; bits and pieces from the bottom up to Return to Spiffland. I've found some lovely little worlds within it, though, so if you don't mind digging through the sand for that occasional gem, I feel that it's worth the time, especially if you're an explorer at heart, as I am; little is more satisfying to me than finding a weird gem.
It's dangerous to go alone! Take a yoshi!
