Haven't played a good old-fashioned RPG in months. Starting Summon Night: Swordcraft Story last weekend though. Only about six hours in so far due to my lack of time, but it's fun stuff. An old GBA game might have been just what I needed. Being portable is nice too...

You know I had no idea I'd pick this well this year... :O I've been in shock when I finally start looking at how many games I chose right. I saw the Brazil-France game on Saturday on Saturday though and I wouldn't have expected Brazil to lose. It was a real surprise.

Ys I came out in the US as Ys: The Vanish Omen for the Sega Master System and as part of the TG-16 compilation Y's Book I and II (which were the first and second games on one disc). Ys III: Wanderers from Ys came out on the Genesis courtesy of the departed Renovation (which released a lot of anime-s...

Oh, heck, I'll try this. :) I'll probably be horribly wrong again... but I always root for the Germans.

No problem. I like doing them. :) I realize not everyone gets to go and sometimes they have a special interest the media doesn't cover. Or, maybe just my quirky taste in games brings out odd titles that people wouldn't otherwise hear about. Since E3 wrapped up I've heard that Deep Labyrinth was orig...

E3 - Day 3

Third and final day of E3. I woke up to sadly find myself still sore from the day before, but not much helping that. I got to the convention early, as expected, only to find out that they increased the number of spots they set aside for valet parking, forcing me to park another two rows farther back...

I never said anything about our generation. This is the average across everybody. There are more adult gamers than child gamers. It's a fact. We have people in their twenties, thirties, and even forties playing. We have children somewhere between five and eighteen playing. Even if there is a higher ...

E3 - Day 2

Today I had late shift so I actually was able to get out on the exhibit floor right at the at the start of the show--even beforehand actually. Knowing the vast crowd that would form at the Nintendo booth for the Wii, my coworkers and I entered the West Hall about twenty minutes before the show opene...

Just a warning, but I doubt many up-and-coming writers would be found on a fanfic site. And I'm saying this as both a fanfic writer and someone who has had been paid to have her original, non-fanfic work published. You'll get a lot of other amateurs who may be very good, but up-and-coming writers im...

Is it me, or are gameing consoles pulling more and more away from young gamers? With the real exception of Nintendo and wealthy parents with spoiled kids, all these new gameing consoles are getting more and more expensive I think this is what Nintendo is going for with the Wii. They're going for th...

E3 - Day 1

[General Day 1 Report, rest to follow] Well, the first day of E3 2006 is over. This year the convention started a little differently. Normally the floor opens to everybody at once, but this year the show opened at 9am for the media, and everybody else got in at 11am. Since I was working this morning...

It's late, but I'll throw in my two cents. :P My predications: Sony is going to take a hit this generation. I thought they already were going to since the Xbox360 is coming out with a more expansive library than before (getting more Japanese developers on board will definitely help them), but with t...

You're not the first person to ask me to look out for Mother 3, Sonic#, so it's now on my list. :) I'm not media so I don't get the press releases, but if it's on the show floor and not locked away in a conference room I probably can find it, given enough time. If any new Sonic games are playable th...

E3 - Rune's Annual Sojourn

So... I'm going to E3 again this year... and since I've been asked elsewhere to do my annual report, I figured I'd de-lurk here and make the same announcement. Which is... I'm going to E3 again this year and I'll take a look at anything I find cool and unusual and report back here. And you'll also h...

It's actually really interesting how Kingdom Hearts started. In japan, both Square Enix and Disney share the same building. Two people from each company were in an elevator at the same time one day and they started talking. That's how it came to be. This is the first time I'd heard the elevator sto...

Heh. Thanks guys. It's kinda scary being the longest continually running Lunar site. And we still get traffic and have an active community. That's the nuttiest part. The web design looks like crap because it hasn't changed in most of those ten years, but it's home. I guess that's what counts. :)

I remember RPing Ghaleon too. ;) If I was going to be similar to anyone in a game though I'd probably want to be a support character of some sort. Generally don't get worked over as much as the main heroes. I can deal without having a big sob backstory.

Alunissage has the publishing order right, though that is not the order they were written in, nor it is the order they are currently being sold in. I don't remember where I found it, but I once saw a nice chart that should Lewis's writing periods for the seven books and the later onces actually over...

For a while this was all the rage at my office. Everybody kept playing it during break time. I gave it a couple tries, but I'm not that good and apparently not that well versed in rock since I only recognized three of the songs. It probably would've been more fun for me if I was more familiar with t...
