    I would actually be kind of impressed if you finished all of those today.

    It's not the quantity, it's the quality. That's what I always say.

    Also, if Dan decides to do this as well, one of us having very few games to go through will ensure that we will still have time for sex.

    "I'M TRYING TO FINISH 'SPACE PIRATES AND ZOMBIES', CUT IT OUT"

    "Shut up, bitch, I can still make you juicy while you quell the undead with torpedos."

    "GOD DAMMIT"
    Who's who in this scenario?

    How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop, Terin?
  • TeramonaTeramona Consulting Tea Specialist Best Coast!
    You should have asked me last night. I would have kept count.

    I'm arithmophobic.
  • TeramonaTeramona Consulting Tea Specialist Best Coast!
    I added in Chrono Trigger even though it's not a PC game, because I was supposed to have played that game a long time ago.
  • TeramonaTeramona Consulting Tea Specialist Best Coast!
    Wait... does LoL count?

    Not on Steam, and there is no end so 10 hours would be the requirement anyways.

    Awww... someone just gifted me with a game called Amnesia! How sweet! :D

    Someone doesn't read the rules, and that person is a noob.

    Too bad she didn't have it before.

    It was a lie the whole time. No one ever gifts me anything.

    That is not a troll gift and is therefore valid.

    Day 3: Today I woke up to knocking at my bedroom door. It was my roommate Joe, alerting me to the fact that Robby was going to be home shortly, and that they'd both be expecting tea. I was told to wear an evening gown to the table.

    After a few hours of teatime and creative brainstorming for a show we plan to write, shoot, and distribute, I realized that I have not applied for a job in 2 days. Luckily, my mom called me just then and told me that my father had just deposited a large sum of money in to my bank account, thus freeing me up to play Bastion for the rest of the night. She also offered to buy me a new computer, but I declined on the grounds that I needed to be more independent. I said, however, that she could give me the money that she would have spent on my computer... So I could just buy a new one myself if I wanted.

    Now, back to Bastion. Herein be spoilers.

    I finally found the singer. This level was particularly fun to play, because you can hear her song the whole time you're looking for her. In a game like this, at least in my very little experience, when your character is pretty much alone after some kind of end of the world scenario (AKA The Calamity), it's singularly comforting to find new characters along the way.

    Singularly comforting, indeed.

    This guy ended up being some kind of a dick, though.

    I am finding myself getting increasingly more frustrated with the levels as time wears on, but I also find that this makes the completion of each level all the more fulfilling on a psychological level. Hopefully tomorrow will bring with it the ending of this game, and a sense of peace.

    You guys, @Teremona 's balls finally dropped! I never thought we'd see the day!

    You're a man now, Terry! (that's your new man name).

    Nah, Dan shares his balls with me so I didn't need to grow any of my own. He said I can keep using them as long as I sponge them clean every night.

    You're actually going to play Chrono Trigger? I've been meaning to do that for like......over a decade. Luckily I don't have to anymore because these guys are doing it for me It's way funnier than actually playing it.

    That was some amazing fingerwork on those chords.

    Day 8: Chrono Trigger begins.

    image

    You know when you get your first glimpse of something, and you realize that this moment is going to be one of those defining moments of your life? When you realize that you've just started something that is going to change the way you view art, humanity, and the universe? When I powered up Chrono Trigger, it was nothing like that.

    I hate this game, and I'll tell you why.

    image

    They let me name my own character. There's a default, of course, which is Crono... but they gave me the choice to name him, so I did. I named him Trono, naturally, infusing my name with his... thereby transferring all of the disappointment, bitterness, and self loathing I have for myself to him. He's awaken by his mother in the morning, and I'm wondering why he didn't have the motivation to get himself up. Why isn't he in school, and trying to do something better with his life? Why, furthermore, is he still living with his mother?

    One redeeming quality I find so far, is the fact that the dialogue throws in some stark real world realities at you. For instance:

    image

    I can only imagine a child who really had that kind of relationship with his dad, while playing through this part, would think to themselves "I'm going to kill everything in this game that stands in my way. And then I'm going to kill my father."

    Aside from that, I played through a chunk of the beginning only to die before I reached a save point... At which point I employed Dan's particular set of skills to play through it again to get me back to where I was before. Then I died again while he was at the store... and now I'm here... writing this... waiting for Dan to return, so that he can get me back to where I died again.

    I'm really enjoying myself. A lot.
