I survived

But only just barely. A four-day gauntlet of Vietnamese wedding ceremonies and rehearsals and bar tabs followed by two days of being put into the sights of a likely future father-in-law who is sort of like the distilled essence of Hiroshi Yamauchi — it was touch-and-go for a while. But I survived.

Flyin’ back to San Francisco tomorrow night, after which time: updates resume. After I’ve finally had a chance to see Indiana Jones, anyway. It pains my soul on a deep, existential setting not to have seen it yet. No, I don’t care if you like it or hate it. I’m going to watch it and love it, thanks.

In the meantime, here is a meme:

No sarcasm here! I’m really digging Chocobo’s Dungeon.

Wow, this was a remarkably schizophrenic update.

  1. It’s actually not a longshot gamble that a lot of Final Fantasy players like MST3K, but damn if that doesn’t seem random.

  2. Eh, at least it’s better than deriving all your humour from pop culture references you expect everyone to get, *coughDreamworksAnimationcough*.

  3. I’d love to hear more about the customs and traditions you witnessed, just cause it’s awesome to learn about those types of things.

  4. Has Working Designs risen from the dead to localize Chocobo’s Mysterious Dungeon?

  5. Is… Is that a moogle wearing a Racer-X facemask? And quoting MST3K, at that?

    That’s it. I’ma getting-a this game.

  6. Well that’s fifty dollars I shouldn’t spend but probably will in July, and only a week after Under the Knife 2 at that. Well played, Square.

  7. As if Chocobo Tales’ charm hadn’t already sold me on the game. Looks like it’s another game to add to the backlog.

  8. Updates resume?

    Might I suggest Giant Bomb.com? All the cool kids are doing it. Of course, unless you’re a previous Gamespot employee, you may not qualify.

  9. All games will be localized into only having obscure pop-culture references in the future. A website dedicated to all the references will be mainly used to decipher the dialogue.

  10. Falcom, i think he means he will be resuming his updates here, as opposed to updating his curriculum vitae.

  11. Personally, I think Square Enix is getting a little too cute with their scripts of late. Looking forward to that game, though.

  12. You see that movie, and you love it. People are far too complainy on the subject of summer blockbusters. I think I was the only person I know who liked all of last years’ big releases, because they’re big, loud, colorful, dumb and fun. And if nothing else it’s a good excuse to spend some time in air conditioning having your auditory and visual senses blasted into nothingness.

  13. Man… This game looks so cool, and this blog post locked it as a purchase for me… Until I checked Amazon… They have it listed as $50, and I thought it was supposed to be $40… That de-locked it for me. So what do you say, Jeremy… is this game worth me shelling out that extra $10?

  14. It would be an easier sell at $40, but if you like good roguelikes it’s probably worth the extra.

    Awesome post-script: iPhone spell-check recognizes the word “roguelike.”
