That Dhoulmagus fight in the Dark Ruins is really, really difficult. It feels suitably big, significant. My third full-party death in the game.

I've got some XP grinding to do.'s avatar image // / 112195316470294701 Origin link. Source file.

I'm starting a playthrough of Dragon Quest 8: Journey Of The Cursed King (2004, Playstation 2) tonight at

I haven't played a long comfy JRPG in quite a while so this should be nice. (I figure it'll take me two or three months streaming a couple times a week to finish the game).

DQ8 (pt. 1, first playthrough)

Start up to arriving in Alexandria

Playing Mirror's Edge (2008 FPS game) again tonight over at

Can I complete the game twice in one sitting? Maybe 1.5 times is more realistic.

Faith's Quiet Weekend

Completed ME once, then ran around in Quake

I'm starting up a game of Shadowrun SNES randomizer at

I know the game reasonably well but I've never played any kind of randomizer before. So I figure this will take multiple broadcasts to complete.

Jake's Growing Confusion (Shadowrun SNES Rando pt. 1)

Completed 2/3rds of the game

Loved Mirror's Edge. So glad I finally played it.

I really like complex movement in first-person video games and ME is some of the best. It's really well implemented and animated. It doesn't move like Quake (or CPM, Reflex, Warsow etc) - it's more realistic, has different goals - but it's just as satisfying to play.

Story is both a little slight and also well-suited to the scope of the game. If it were any "bigger" it'd be too much I think.

Combat is... not great. Thankfully it isn't the focus, the point. It did hold me up a few times though.

Sound (ambient sound, sound FX) is excellent. Soundtrack (by Solar Fields) is excellent. Nice glassy ambient and IDM-ish stuff.

I dunno. I want to sit here and praise the movement for several thousand words but this is long enough already. Game is fun.
