ohey it's your birthday
Wow it's jet stream sam
Yoho! What news dost thou bring?
The moon is falling! But I'm doing good. Still same old, same old though. What about you?
Yea, the same. Doing the usual work and such. Got some easy morning shifts of late which is swell. Trying to figure what I want play lately. You?
I forgot, did you say you're still working with the kids at the play place?
I know how that goes.
I'm playing Fallout 3, and Poke'mon Gold version at the moment.
Yea. Easy gig. Still should look for something full time... some day. I'm likely to replay something at this point, though if I were smart I'd get through my backlog of light novels since there's more of em coming this month or so.
I bet you see the craziest stuff and injuries at a trampoline park!
we get the odd visit from an ambulance, usually just for some ankle injury. otherwise it's often just a kid getting beaned in the head with a dodgeball. we don't have many hard surfaces for people to get really messed up
Happy birthday listen to foreground eclipse
Thanks and maybe
Happy birthday, irgpie! What do you got planned for your birthday?
Thanks! Already hung out with some friends the past weekend and went out to dinner since it was also my grandfathers birthday. Not doing much else since my mother and sister are away in San Francisco. What's going on for your own bday in a couple o' days?
I'll be going out to eat at this Asian place, where they cook in front of you. It's been a while since I've been there. And as for gifts, I only asked for one thing. And it's already been ordered and came in. That gift being, Deco*27 Hatsune Miku GHOST feat.. CD album.
So I'm hyped for that.
Did you already get your gifts? What did you get if anything?
Swell! All I got were gift cards as I asked, and the Lego Batman Movie which I forgot about but was fine with receiving.
How many movies do you own? Out of curiosity.
Hard to say. My family has a few hundred on the shelves, I'd imagine. Not too many are my own in particular.
A proper Happy Birthday to you by the way!
I just wanted to introduce myself here and to wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Hey, how are you?
Can't complain! Working all summer with a decent amount of free time. I don't want it to end! Whatchu doin'?
irgpie! What is going on, mang? How've you been?
Pretty good! The summer job is super chill and has a good crew. Lotta new and re-released games comin' out the wazoo this summer. I'm glad to have some free time in all this. Not sure what I'll do come Autumn but I'm not super worried just yet. Whatchu been doin'?
I love it when you use words or terms I don't know what they mean. lol What do you mean by, wazoo?
Is this the same job where you kept an eye on the kids at that play place? Or is this cutting grass, you're talking about?
Not a whole lot. Just waiting for my brothers wedding day to come around. Other than that not much worth repeating. Though I did get Fallout 4 and I was playing that a ton. Oh! And I went to the beach on Mothers day weekend. No catch was worthy of mentioning, tho.
Pretty much the same expression as just "out the butt", as in quickly and in large amounts. I guess.
It's the grass cutting one. Well, cutting is just one part of it. Also a bit of painting and groom baseball diamonds. Most of it is done on tractors so it's pretty relaxing.
Just good to take it easy now and then, right? Goodness knows I can afford to with all the heat and rain around here.
I see now. I figured it was along the lines of that., but I wasn't 100 percent.
What happened to the other job?
Yeah, I'll say.
Did you say you've got a gf now, in Din?
I decided to leave my other job since it was only part-time and would've overlapped with the occasional weekend shift I may have to take for this full-time position. Also I just wanted the free time. What sealed the deal on leaving my last job was also the fact they've got the whole place closed for renovations an entire month.
I am not in any relationship right now. But now I'm trying to think what I woulda said that might've been misread as that.
i am not used to seeing you not named irg
I've been using this on steam and some of discord for a bit. I just wanted a change. Not sure how long it'll last when I'm just lurking half the time
Also I've just wanted to use some nerdy Japanese name for a while now and I really liked the ring of "Crown Prince".
haha its just funny because I literally didn't recognize you until I saw irg under your avatar
still not maple still not used to the name XD
Hey! Yes I'm definitely still contemplating, I plan to buy Owlboy as soon as it gets to Wii U or Xbox One! Any opinions on it you have would be greatly appreciated
I've played about 2 and a half hours so far and it's hard to put down! It takes a wee bit but things start flowing very well once the main mechanics are fully in place. There's also a slew of stealth sections so far, but none too bothersome and quite enjoyable, really. I never feel like the game is too punishing either since you can generally take quite a few hits and there's no lives or bottomless pit nonsense. The visuals and overall presentation are solid for sure. Unless something exceptionally annoying happens further in, I could honestly recommend this game to anyone already.
That's awesome based on what you've said I can't wait to play it!!
Brah Ill take that Comapny of Heros off ya
Hey man just wanted to say I got the game and redeemed it. TY
is that avi a christmas themed Kirisame Marisa?
Yep! I'm using it on Discord too. You can find me idling on GR and MotK's servers. Seen your name there a few times when I bother to check. I guess it wasn't a doppelganger after all. You sure get around.
lol yep, thats me
dude when were you a part of din
About December 2012 till March 2015. I'm only guessing on the initial join date because that was part of the data that got wiped in a crash.
Hey there welcome back to din!
Well, first I may need to kick some rear to get it set, but thanks!
Hey, I was just trawling the favourite VG music thread 'cause I was about to post "To Grasp Tomorrow" from the Trails of Cold Steel ost and found you had already mentioned it! Then I remembered you've mentioned Falcom's games a couple of times. I just got through Trails of Cold Steel and now I'm hanging for the PAL release of ToCS2. Falcom is underrated, needs more attention and support.
Hell yea. My fave is still probably "Into the Abyss" though. Or "The Decisive Collision" since the buildup and emotion in that song is astounding. I haven't played the Sky games in a while so I'd have to really think about how their OST holds up in comparison. But yea, I am almost all about Falcom these days. Or just more localisations for smaller titles in general.
Yeahhh, great sound track. It's been a while for me too with the sky games, but I remember the sound track for those being really good too. Gets you right in the feels.
Have you played Cold Steel 2?
I remember you saying you were going to get Xanadu Next day one, I think I might as well, looks like a neat game.
Yea, about done my second run of CS2 actually. Still pretty sentimental over the entire endgame. The final town and boss themes are especially moving. The info drought for CS3 is painful. Also yea, gettin' Xanadu Next straight away. I haven't had much else besides Trails and some co-op games to occupy me for quite a while.
I was thinking about doing a second run of CS1 before CS2 to try S rank everything, but then I remembered you can't skip cut-scenes. I mean I really enjoy the story and all, but ... I think it would do just to cut down a bit on time.
Also hyped for Sky 3 that's coming out next year. Gotta love Estelle x Joshua. As much as I like the CS cast, I can't help but feel like those two are more of a stand out.
But after seeing those two sub series for Erebonia and Liberl, I find myself itching to see certain characters meet. Like I'd love to see how Millium and Renne interact, or Rean and Joshua for that matter, Viscount Arseid and Cassius Bright.
There's so much to be hyped for in the Trails series.
You can fastfoward cutscenes if you were unaware. Still takes a bit of course.
I guess that just kinda goes with having a choice over what character moments you want out of Rean and Class VII. Doesn't seem as in-depth at times as the Brights. I hope CS3 shifts focus a little, though Rean is a definite return, speculation abound if there will be a different protag. I think there was some confirmation of some Sky characters coming back finally, but no names dropped.
What I want most is Fie and Joshua for some high speed turn breaking. Fie is probably one of my favourites because of how implicitly she mirrors so many characters. Also her evasion shenanigans are even easier in 2.
Kept you waiting, huh? (Happy uber late b-day)
Oh, why thank you!
I just got off summer vacation. How are you? :3
Nearly done mine as well. Back in college on Sept. 6th, kinda. Only have proper classes on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Not a fan of online stuff but I wasn't given much choice. At least it frees my time up for Trails of Cold Steel 2 coming out that same day.
That's always good. My only online class RN is Math.
I had to take math last year. It was just a very simple refresher course and the entire grade was made up by 10 testes worth 10% each. Didn't even attend the lessons and made off with a 94.
Happy birthday! ..again! Hope it was a good one!
It was. Double thanks to you then!
Happy birthday Irg!!
play land wars
Shadow Warrior was a great game
Right? That game's story was lot better than it had the right to be.
I imagine the sequel may dial things back, though that's fine if the gameplay still delivers. I want more katana.
Good think you can DUAL KATANA in the sequel.
Aw yea. Double the Wang to go around!
When Innocence is just a mask.
Never mind, I understand. Reminds me that I need to nab their whole discography.
YOU DISAPPOINT ME
I mostly just follow Merami's lighter stuff like Diao ye zong. Even then it's only a small chunk of my larger weeb selection it falls under. I'll add that to my list of groups I've been stockpiling this summer break.
I just read your CR as 'Ordon Magician' whoops.
Close enough, really. Still a fantasy setting full of forests and a farming village.
Indeed. What's up?
Not much. Done my first year of college. Got a large summer break to do some work and otherwise take it easy. How's your end?
Ayy. How's things?
Not too bad. Missing my boyfriend tbh; what about you?
Ah, well hope that works out. I'm just busy with school still. My last minute essay writing today was one of the last major hurdles of this semester, I think. I'm really psyched for my 4 month break since I'll actually be making some money and I can finally focus on some writing again. Also videogames but that's a given any time.
Your avatar is so beautiful +_+
Oops I didn't reply directly to this by mistake. Nor can I just delete my post. This is a struggle.
No big deal! Assuming it was ok, I deleted for you after I read it. I'll have to check out the artist for sure. You always have such pretty avatars
Interesting avatar you have there.
Thanks! She's Yuuka Kazami from Touhou Project.
I take it that it's enjoyable?
Well, it's a bullet hell, so the gameplay is certainly a challenge. There's at least some fighting game spinoffs I play more often with friends. The music, characters, etc. are certainly my greater focus of attention.
