  1. got the PC98 Ultima collection, messing with Ultima III there... some pics below. They come with the Anex86 emulator. It's tricky to work with, but in english so you can read the settings at least.
  2. The CD lot has been sold. CD Box set is still available. If anyone here is interested, I'll sell for 90$. I also have a PS1 copy of Dragon Warrior 7 thats not posted yet. Probably selling for 35$.
  3. yeah that. I used to leave it, but then I'd get like 5-10 offers at the minimum price. I didn't mind at first but no one seems to like to haggle anymore lol. You send them a counteroffer like halfway or more and they disappear...
  4. Selling some of my DQ stuff that I can part with: DQI-VIII individual soundtrack+suites lot, all 90$ https://www.ebay.com/itm/184296100558 DQI-VII Symphonic Suite boxset, complete with still packaged bottle caps that were boxed with it. It's up for 120, but let me know if you wanna make an offer for it. I have the offer threshold low on ebay to prevent spam from lowballing offer bots: https://www.ebay.com/itm/184296102538
  5. Status on the product has been changed to this the attached image for buyers outside Japan. Unsure if preorders made before it will still ship.
  6. Sounds fun but wouldn't advise it. There's a vortex that goes around in the water that can destroy the boat instantly. That's why I have the boat parked on the narrow there... it can get hit there, but very unlikely. Then you gotta troll the coasts and fight more pirates to steal their boat again. There's a town only accessible via water, as well as the last dungeon. This game is a lot of fun but it can go bad really fast... and there's no bouncing back sometimes.
  7. I now have a full party AND a boat. A bit better...
  8. Well the party I've been mostly raising pretty well since early last week is dead now except for the thief. And there's no way he can raise the money to res the rest alone. But hey, I got the boat of the part responsible for the deaths. A boat.
  9. Hopefully by July this mess clears up -- BUT, Amazon Japan normally uses DHL for international shipments. They are still operating normally. So unless something horribly wrong happens, this release shouldn't be effected. Unfortunately I have two items on buyee that, despite being on EMS, are stuck for the forseeable future.
  10. Yup. Through DOSBox. I grew up with these on an Apple IIc that was in my room growing up. For some reason the emulator's auto-detect on how many cycles this games needs is very off. It runs like you are using the fast forward on SNES9x/zsnes/etc. It's very playable, it's just anything that has more than one frame animates very heckin fast. I set the emulator to a forced number of cycles, it fixes Ultima 3, but then everything else runs slow. Ultima 6 takes like 3 minutes to even start.

    finally was able to get the shiny Charmander I got into a Charizard in Go yeeeeeaaaaaaahhh looks like I got the Charmander in December, but yeah
  12. Had a nervous breakdown... uh, Wednesday or Thursday, I don't know. All days are the same now. I was emotionally dead for an entire night. Much better now thankfully. Cleaned up my room and my car too. Spring cleaning I guess, refreshed the soul. I think there's an unspoken harm in this pandemic in the mental health of people. Thankfully it's something Telehealth can do better than a physical ailment. But with people losing jobs, they lose the insurance and well, that's a no go. I'm in an essential industry, so my job is still operating normally, but for those that are getting furloughed or worse, it's horrifying.
  13. Aside from Seiken Densetsu 3 remake playing a lot of Ultima 3. Honestly getting nowhere in the latter. The food grind early on is a struggle.
  14. Trials of Mana / SD3 remake I wanted this since 1999, and was always afraid if they remade it they'd do a Lufia II DS remake type thing to it but dammit, they got it very right
  15. mandatory mask order goes into effect tomorrow morning in Maryland they gave me one when I had the flu earlier this year, but I took it off after I left the exam room and no one said anything... I was suffocating with it well, good thing some just arrived today
  16. ^ thats good news in lieu of all of those who are losing their jobs. It's really scary.
  17. bad tbh I've dealt with anxiety and depression since I was 12, and the anxiety/obssessive side was relating to disease and germs. Years of therapy helped... It was like this: "You need to get out of the house and stop washing your hands so much". Now: "Stay the hell inside and wash the hell out of your hands" 😩 At least work is kinda letting up a BIT *knocks on wood*
  18. So I've been up since like 5:30 still waiting to eat breakfast/coffee due to two companies blowing up my phone and email Best thing is the kitchen is a few feet to my right (I set up in the living room for multiple displays) this pandemic thing has gots to go
  19. Wait. That last sentence. That needs more explanation! Subtweeted a post from a Sailor Moon fan profile in October of 2018, she commented, it went from there. Distance is a factor, but we're not that far apart and see eachother a lot, but the virus has complicated that for now. Proposed last October, her birthday. Still working on the rest, but right now we're just trying to stay healthy
  20. they might, never thought they'd get Evangelion but yeah I don't like Netflix's model though, they put a whole season out people talk about it for a weekend then bam! forgotten anyways I have this preordered, might cancel though. The pricetag is not bad considering prices of other series. like 26 episodes of f'n Fate will go for like 300$ on Bluray. This is the entire series + movies. It's a pretty big event too. This is a ***Dragon Quest*** anime that has not been in print since the VHS days in Japan. No DVDs or anything until now.
  21. yes but the compression made it very fuzzy so I replaced it with Acerola. I've been on work from home for 3 weeks. I've been *working* about 85% of that entire time period. Not the normal 40hr shift. But all of the time. I am getting two companies set up to shift operations remote. This has been 95% successful, thankfully.... but I am exhausted. I live in a city, all kinds of lockdowns in place, all the restaurants are only doing carry out or closing up... some permanently. as far as my time on twitter... yeah no. I just cant anymore. too many egos. complete distortion of any kind of reasonable discourse on really anything. I quit. I met my fiance there that was the high point.
  22. I'm somehow alive but I need a vacation. I miss this place. Too much twitter has screwed with my brains.
  23. Well, I finally did it... I landed a huge new job. The pay difference is more than 15K, and I'm finally not on some kind of service desk/help desk/call queue. 6 years of struggling have hopefully paid off. I started the day after Labor Day.
  24. I know I haven't been on much but... Tomorrow might be the biggest day of my life in the past few years, if as a whole. Part of the reason I haven't been active like I was back in the day was my life was taken over by an incredibly stressful and time consuming job. A job that I spend 9-10 hours a day on, and got paid peanuts. Even when I get home I so stressed out I can't muster up the energy to do much anything I used to enjoy. I have an interview tomorrow morning for a job. It is a major financial improvement, environment improvement, life improvement, you name it. I match it on virtually every bullet point on the job description, and I have 5 years of experience where it wants 3. I'm in final consideration along with 2 others... I've risked my current job to do phone screenings, send emails back and forth and make cover stories. I'm going in late tomorrow too to make the interview....
