video game blabberation  
John, having given up gaming for Lent (we all had to check our hearing when we learned of that one), loaned me Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles. I've more or less gotten the hang of the combat system after two hours. (Plainly put, I've finally switched from Wind Waker configuration to FF:CC configuration, whoo-hoo.)

What I want to know is, why do we spraypaint Mog? It's cute, but ... wouldn't he get high off the fumes in such a small, enclosed space? Since when did this particular setting have the technology for an aerosol can, anyhoo? XD

My first character is a Tulip-style female Yuke, who I am very amused by. I normally don't play the "magical" characters without a load of asskickers by my side, but I couldn't resist the deformity of the Yuke-ness. The theory I have is that the Madonna Harness is actually a magic projection system of sorts, enabling the female Yuke to achieve greater range.

Other than that, I don't have much to say about Crystal Chronicles yet.


I started playing Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask all over again, and I've realized that I still really love that game, despite what others may think of it. My past runthrough has provided me with much more courage this time around ... I'm already in Woodfall, though I hate poison water with a passion. I love Deku Scrubs.

jealdi is currently replaying Ocarina of Time ... another great game. Whenever I'm around, I usually sit nearby and give him random commands like "run into that tree." After he smacks into it, "oh, wait, not I guess it's not that one. Maybe it's when you're an adult."


My expressions crack me up sometimes. Apparently I was pretty amused afterwards, too.

Ya know, those two games are what I'm playing right now too! Weird...
I'm in Zora Land in LoZ: MM, though I need to help Romani Ranch still...they keep stealing the cows, curse you aliens!!

And Crystal Chronicles is much fun, Brian and I have devoted much time to our two-player game. I'm a Selkie though, and Brian will put out fruit and say "Here Selkie Selkie Selkie..." It's pretty funny, you have to hear him say it ^^
Oh, and Ocarina of Time is my favorite Zelda game hands down. I've lost count of how many times I've actually beaten it. I even have the piano book for that game, since I play piano. It's fun, especially the little "game over" piece, hehe.

God, I'm years out of practice with piano, but I'd love sheet music to OoT ... is it still in print? o_o

You should play OoT/MM/WW with me sometime ... I really get into it, so it's pretty amusing to watch. XD

hrmm...well, we ordered it online, I believe from animebooks.com...it's the original Japanese book, but obviously the notes are the same, lol ^^

I think there may be a Majora's Mask one too, at least there was. Not sure, I'll have to look into that though, now that I'm playing MM.

Painting the moogle increases his potential of casting a certain spell:
Blue: Blizzard
Yellow: Fire
Red: Thunder

If you've learned about spell fusion, you'll understand why it's so important. Also, you can cut his hair to make sure he doesn't overheat in warmer-climate areas.

Re: Moogle
Dude. No wonder purple wasn't an option!
