    Hey, Google Docs works now. Now I just have to hope the prices go down as we get closer to launch.

    Funny thing about Etrian Odyssey Untold: I saw a grip of copies at the Walmart near my house a few months ago for $20, and these were the first print editions. Remakes may not do as well as fresh content for the Etrian series.

    I was mentioned a surprising number of times in this episode. Also, you're welcome, Matt from Texas. It's nice to be appreciated. :)

    And yay for Steven Universe! It is such a good show. It's the first western cartoon series I've cared about in over a decade.
    Bravely second...

    Hooray for the new Fire Emblem! I'm also stoked. I've been enjoying JRPG July, too. I've mostly done Heavensward for it, but I think I'll play Fire Emblem: Awakening when I'm out of town next week and might also do a Lufia 2: Rise of the Sinistrals playthrough for old times' sake?

    Dang I want to do a lufia 1 and 2 play through sometime soon. Even the original lufia was a favorite of mine. I bought it with my own money when I was in junior high, and sort of lost in the shuffle was just how story heavy/dialogue driven that game was for it's time. Only ff4 had was close to it. At least in America on the consoles. Just wish it didn't have the swing at air if the monster is already dead mechanic.

    Chris, some advice on your impossible list of games to get through:
    1) skip the MMOs, or at the very most, play 1 of them . . . they're timesinks that will keep you from finishing other games.
    2) When you're finished with Fallout 2, skip Fallout 3 and play New Vegas. They're basically 2 halves of the same game, but New Vegas has significantly better writing and quest design, and the bugs have been ironed out. You're not going to miss anything major story-wise by foregoing Fallout 3.
    3) Play The Witcher 2. The Witcher is good, but it's a long game and the sequel is the must-play game in the series. Do whatever you have to to get past the first game in the series (cheat or skip it and read a plot summary), and then set aside some time to enjoy The Witcher 2.

    And Alice must have been using a faulty Celsius to Fahrenheit converter. 67F is not going to be considered "boiling" or "sweltering" anywhere (even relative to what you're used to). 67 Fahrenheit is just under 20 degrees Celsius. When you say it rarely gets over 25 degrees C in England, that's 77 degrees F.

    When I played Lufia 1, the random encounter rate was tolerable only because someone else had already beaten the game and unlocked a play mode where battles yielded more experience and more money. So I had to grind less, and I could buy infinite items to reduce the encounter rate and/or run away, making the game playable. Lufia 2 was much better in every way.

    Like Azilis said, MMOs are endless timesinks. Especially World of Warcraft. Also, the new WoW area (Tanaan Jungle) doesn't have much of a story narrative. It's mostly a place to get catch-up gear for the new raid, Hellfire Citadel.

    Chris, if you choose to play WoW at all, just log in to do your daily naval missions and weekly Looking for Raid to progress your legendary quest. Don't worry about the rest. There are new reputations to grind, but you don't have to do their daily quests; you can just find or buy items ("Medallion of the Legion") that give you 1000 reputation each for ALL of them.
