I had to go get this icon out of my LJ icon folder... Games!

I woke up earlier than I wanted to and, unable to fall back to sleep, I went ahead and took a run at the end of Suikoden, since I was pretty close. \o/ I did get all 108 Stars, so I did get that amazing end~~ ♥ Now that I'm twenty years late to the party, it's time to look for fic?

I don't feel quite as attached to everyone as I did in SuikoIV, but that's understandable. I mostly used Flik, Viktor, Tir, Pahn, Cleo, Gremio, Kirkus, um... Kasumi for awhile, Rubi at the end, with a few others sprinkled in here and there. A very physical team. I never used Soul Eater until the final battle.

I love Gremio so much. And I want to go replay SuikoIV for Ted. ^^;; Though I'll be good and do II next, when the guide shows up.

I want piles of Gremio/Tir everywhere, and however the universe wants to give me Flik/Viktor. Hmm... who else? A lot of the canon couples were really cute - Hix & Tengaar, Lepant & Eileen, Kirkus & Sylvana, etc.

I would give a lot of money for a shiny remake of this game with about twice the character stuff, some loose ends tied up, etc. (Well, some may get tied up in SuikoII?)

Gah, I'm so happy~~

Sega wants to turn its classic catalogue into 'the Netflix of retro gaming'

Sega exited the video game console business nearly 20 years ago, but the company still retains some of the industry’s most iconic characters and beloved classic catalogs. That explains why Sega decided to put resources toward an all-new initiative it’s calling Sega Forever. Announced earlier this morning, Sega Forever is the new banner with which the publisher will reissue games from its backlog on iOS and Android, starting with five titles to be released tomorrow in the US. A new title every two weeks after that, and every game will start out free, with players having the option to turn off advertising forever with a $1.99 in-app purchase.

The first five Sega Forever games are Genesis titles: Sonic the Hedgehog, Comix Zone, Altered Beast, Kid Chameleon, and Phantasy Star II. But Sega doesn’t want to stop there. “I’ve got two decades worth of classic gaming content,” says Mike Evans, Sega’s chief marketing officer and development lead on Sega Forever. “Everything as far back as the SG 1000 Mark I through to Master System, Game Gear, Genesis, Saturn, and Dreamcast.”


I probably have Phantasy Star II in two or three different formats already, and yet my immediate thought was 'OH I NEED TO BUY PHANTASY STAR II'. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this and will probably end up jamming my tablet with Sega goodness. Especially when they get to Saturn stuff, since that's the generation I really missed and picking up back-catalogue Saturn stuff has been really difficult. I really only have about a dozen games for the system and that's including imports.

Also, I'm going to need at least two boxes to pack up notebooks just from the dresser. Which are all blank notebooks.

To celebrate Nino's birthday, last night I watched Platina Data. I've been meaning to check that movie out for a while, because it sounded like the kind of thing I'd enjoy, but... I should have expected it to turn into pseudo-science bullshit halfway through, I guess. And pretty much negate the premise. In the end, I didn't like it at all.

Are all of Higashino Keigo's stories like this? Because I was already wary of how Laplace no Majou would be, but now I'm almost sure I won't like that one, either.

But anyway, happy birthday, Nino!
