      If there's one thing all this has taught me, it's that anyone can wear the hat.  YOU could wear the hat!

  4. Playing through DQIII without a priest is a lot harder than I thought it would be.

      Interesting. Is that a different thing that happens in the remake?  If I recall right, in the old NES version, I believe the Merchant was stuck in jail.

      Do you have an extra merchant for the Green Orb?

      You're a braver one than I, for going into DQ3 without a dedicated Healer.  :)

  7. World 7 in Super Mario Bros. 3 is one of the most frustrating places in a Mario game, let alone platformers. I forgot how much of a bastard that whole world is.

      I been there, friend.  I remember the one stage in that world where you can only cross by scrambling across the mouths of invincible piranha plants under the power of a Super Star, and you always have to reach the next block before the power runs out or, instead of another Super Star, it'll only be a coin and you'll die.  That's easily the most annoying stage in the entire game.

  8. My friend caught a parasite. I swear my life is on like season 8 and the writers are just making up nonsense to keep the views up

      Sounds like you need to go back to the island, Jack. Seriously though, I hope your friend gets healthy again soon.

  9. One day I was walkin' and I found this big log
    And I rolled the log over and underneath was a tiny little stick, 
    and I was like, "That log had a child."

      Everyone told me not to stroll on that beach.

      Said "Seagulls gonna come, poke me in the coconut", and they did.  And they did.

  11. Since I’ve been replaying Dragon Quest IV mobile on and off lately, I think it’s time for good old Torneko Taloon to be my profile picture. When I got into the main series games back in 2010 he became a quick favorite of mine.

    1. The Dog of Zahan

      The Dog of Zahan

      While I don't like his standalone chapter in IV (I have quite enough experience as a retail drone without simulating it in an RPG, 10-Q), I love what he does in battle in the original game. Best secret weapon against the final boss is when Taloon trips and does a double-crit on them!  He's a good fella.

  12. With Final Fantasy III now finished, next up will either be Final Fantasy VII, VIII, or X on the “Final Fantasy Games Yangus Needs to Play/Finish,” list. Not sure which one it will be.

    1. The Dog of Zahan

      The Dog of Zahan

      Sounds good!  FF8 gets a bad rep, mostly, I think, for the awkward "Draw Magic" system.  This is where you siphon magic elements out of your opponents rather than having an MP pool.  The only problem I had with that is generally, the more powerful the spell, the fewer casts you can suck out of an opponent, adding to the grind.   Still, the game's pretty solid!

      Come to think of it, Ignasia has a point:  If you DO play FF10 first of those 3 games, you might not go back to the older blockier graphics and miss out.  Yeah, change my vote for 7, then 8, then 10.  Much as there's a part of me that hates to admit it (maybe the bitter old man in me that's gone a bit cynical), 7 and 8 are really good Although I have to admit, 4, 5, and 6 are still my favorites of this series, ESPECIALLY 6.

      Of those?  I'd say 10, easily.  It has it's cheesy moments, but it's very very good.

  15. There is no sign of our culture more damning than letting Ray Harryhausen pass in 2013 with nary a word.

      Dang!  that's so sad!  He was brilliant!  1981's Clash Of The Titans was amazing!

  16. Isabelle for 5mash. Animal Crossing Switch. Luigi's Mansion 3. Sounds like a good time coming up.

    1. The Dog of Zahan

      The Dog of Zahan

      My money's going to Luigi 3, Bowser's Inside Story, Katamari Rerolled, the Final Fantasy remasters, and Daemon X Machina.  Ohh  Gods yes, Daemon X Machina... I was in ecstasy over that announcement.

  17. The Nintendo Direct that was supposed to be last week will now be tomorrow, September 13th.

      I watched it, and I loved much of it.  That the Switch is getting so many FF games, and that awesome looking Daemon X Machina game... this is an exciting time.

  18. God I hate Goku Black. Seeing nearly everyone using him online only fuels the fire for my dislike of the character.

    1. The Dog of Zahan

      The Dog of Zahan

      Is it just that everybody's using him, or that he's another iteration of the "Mirrorverse evil twin" schtick, and not even a very good one at that?  That's my take on him, anyway.

      'cause fascination with anything to do with astronauts died in the late 90's, when people figured we got no business in space until we learn to live right on Earth first.  the dissolution of the Young Astronauts Council was the death of that barely extant powdered orange beverage, I say.

  20. Had to put down my wife's pet ferret yesterday afternoon. Needless to say I was not all to well at work tonight (it's just barely the day after). Is it normal for people to get more sensitive with age, because I've never cried in public except at funerals.

    1. The Dog of Zahan

      The Dog of Zahan

      Grief is normal, a pet is like a member of the family.  I wept openly half the day after our first ferret died, and I likely will again when our second and last does so too. 

      My condolences on you and your wife's loss.  Our ferret is a little ill lately, herself.  I worry...

  21. Finally, I have the best character in Final Fantasy VI: Gogo, who in this playthrough I’ve named Nobou (three guesses who that is).

    I don’t care what anyone says, Gogo is EASILY one of the most fun characters to use in FF6. He’s always the first character I go for once I have the Falcon. Great customization, a strange design and mysterious presence, and one of the best character themes in the game makes him one of my favorite Final Fantasy/RPG playable characters.

    I’m so happy to finally have him again. :)

    1. The Dog of Zahan

      The Dog of Zahan

      I love how Gogo can use any set of unique commands he ( or she? Do we even ask?  :D) wants to.  With the right equipment Gogo can fill in for just about anyone.

  22. It's weird to think I'm 21 next week and have done so little of significance with my life. I'm going to have my midlife crisis early:P

    1. The Dog of Zahan

      The Dog of Zahan

      I entered into a deep depression about my own mortality at age 14, so I kinda understand where you're coming from.

      Anyway, to the main problem.  I also know what it's like to feel you haven't done anything worthwhile.  Still, though it's going to sound like a bunch of "It's a wonderful Life" blah-blah, rest assured there's people you have contact with that think the world of you, even if the world at large doesn't know who you are yet.

      Happy early birthday, congrats on hitting 21, and keep your head up.

  23. Oh hey, my Den level made it to 20. Guess I get to do this one more time....ahem....

    Yangus’s Humanity reaches the highest level! He has become a Beloved Boss!

  24. The Super Nintendo Mini has been great. Been playing it since I got home this afternoon and it’s awesome. So far only tested a few games (Final Fantasy VI and Super Mario Kart) but have thoroughly been enjoying it. I’m looking forward to finally being able to play the original Star Fox (and it’s unreleased sequel) as well as playing Yoshi’s Island, Zelda: Link to the Past, and a few others again!

    1. The Dog of Zahan

      The Dog of Zahan

      Ah, gotcha.  Maybe you played 2000 hours of it?  That's why it seemed like SimCity 2000?  :D

      I liked how it replaced the generic Godzilla knockoff with Bowser.

      Sim city -2000- was on SNES as well?  I knew the older SimCity was a launch window title, but 2000?
