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~~

fucking seriously.

In a stunning example of fuck this life, the past week exactly has been a non-stop cavalcade of training a goddamn idiot with no warning given (who then proceeded to turn out to be a lying bastard, and gone as of today), ridiculously long shifts, dealing with edgelords and other aggravations on the internet, and literally being on watch for 48 fucking hours waiting to see if the phone would ring at any time and drag me kicking and screaming back to work on my time off.

And now? Now I'm eating four 12-hr shifts back to back, with literally no idea when I might get another night off after those, and eventually another trainee.

Lovely. It'll go well with the (stress-)sick that bloomed to life overnight, I've already gone from 'throat hotspot' to 'congestion and likely fever' (and ask me how much I actually slept).

Oh, and the fucking leak that's had damage to the living room ceiling that hasn't been looked at in weeks? Of course they're coming tomorrow. Of course.

New York Toy Fair 2017 - New Transformers Cartoon In 2018, Potentially G1 Inspired

It's true this dates all the way back to early spring, but I (for various of reasons) am generally behind on stretches of TF gossip these days.

I also find the use of that art interesting -- and feel it would be more than a little odd to use such overtly "G1"-styled art as simple placeholders in this day and age, the way the article describes. But we'll see, I guess?

Don't know just how likely a new but G1-styled cartoon would actually be, but I'd take it in a heartbeat. It'd be a chance for a new twist on the original, and I could possibly see characters I haven't seen in action in bloody decades.

Time will tell?

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.
