SMT: DS games

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor

  • SMT: Devil Survivor Drama CD is pretty nice. All the characters sound just like what I would have expected them to, except Naoya. His voice is simply: Sexiness in a bottle.
  • DS DCD’s official pairing is Yuzu x Hero. Damnit, I was hoping for a Atsuro X Yuzu. I think they deserve each other. Personally I prefer Haru X Hero more, or even Amane x Hero. Yumi says that they explored only one route, so I suppose that was the reason why.
  • The drama CD is making me feel like playing the game all over again. I stopped at day 6 and didn’t continue after that cause I was hopelessly underlevelled, which brings me to a point I don’t like about SMT.

SMT: Strange Journey

  • SMT: Strange Journey follows a more classic style. Playing it reminds me of the way it was described in the old PC games, but I’m rather disappointed to see that they didn’t spend enough time on the graphics; the dungeons look horrible and can be confusing.
  • Don’t really have any characters to root for, but I enjoyed the challenge of trying to convince the demons to join my side. Of course, fusing them is a lot of fun. I’m trying to get all the Lady and Megami demons; next one is Fortuna. She looks kick ass.
  • Yes, am shallow gamer. I’m only aiming for pretty demons. :P

Main gripe about both games:
The boss levels often so much higher than their underlings in that level, you’re almost always at a disadvantage. For example, the boss could be level 20, you’ve hit level 16, but all your enemies are level 14 and below, which means levelling up to level 18 is often a time waster cause you spend more time hunting low level demons that give very little, if any, EXP.

Live and Let Live

I’m actually a few days behind my blogging, and it’s only because I can’t really think or get the energy to write. Actually it’s more of the latter, as when I come home these days, I’m just so tired that I zone out. It’s good to just sit back, watch the words run by you in IRC or even in chat. I’m starting to show my anti-social tendencies; I don’t pay as much attention as I should to conversations (THANK YOU LOGS!).

Life’s been anything but boring though. Part of the reason why I’ve been so tired recently is due to Earth2025. It’s a pretty fun game if you have the right clan to play it with; I never got past my first day the first time a long time ago.Thanks Gan for introducing me to PDM. They’re a bunch of nutjobs, but they’re a FUN bunch of nutjobs- they’re people who take things easy and life not so seriously.

Been keeping rather busy at work too, especially with a number of projects that seem to be accelerating. I need to keep my eyees on the details and not forget the big picture. Working macro and micro don’t always work; but it takes practice. I wonder if that’s the reason I’ve found it hard to come up with copy yesterday and today.

Churning out words usually comes second nature to me, and when I find myself hesitating it’s not a really a good sign for me. This especially applies to work. I’ve been hesitating, and I know the reasons why. What I need to do know is step up my game. I know I can do better, and I should. Getting to the reason why I’m hesitating isn’t that difficult. It’s the acknowledging and taking that step to fix that often makes me wary, if only because I’m too afraid of falling flat on my face.

*Facepalms*

I’m a rather big hypocrite. I talk about being afraid to take risks, and yet, here in my Twitter, I have a nice little message from myself that reminds me:

(9:59:02 PM) geminianeyes: says life’s too short to spend in a frown. Cry if you must, but then smile, and let the sun through again. Let the rain cleanse you. LIVE.

Life’s too short to be spent hesitating and wondering. Let’s go.
