Well I found that damn rock in Dragon Quest VII after much backtracking and involuntary grinding. Jeez, gotta make sure to be careful in the future. Now I'm on the next island which is kooky but sad. It's a lovely game. If you like Dragon Quest at all, I cannot recommend it more highly. It looks great on 3DS, the music sounds nice, and it's got all that DQ goodness.
Goshdarnit I'm already stuck in Dragon Quest VII. I'm supposed to have enough rock fragments to go to the next island, but when I put them on the pillars, I don't have enough. I don't know if I'm missing a green or a red one, as each are missing just one piece. Grrr. I've been backtracking all over the place trying to find it, but haven't yet. I know I skipped something obvious, I just know it. I contacted Rangergirl for her help, but she's off at a folk music convention right now, and plus I think they've made some changes to the game from the Playstation version - at least that's the impression I get from walkthroughs.
Played a little of Dragon Age: Inquisition today, inspired by Asreal's blog the other day. Just a little bit though before I felt guilty and tried to write. I haven't written any fiction for a while until today, and I did manage to put together about a page. It's a start. I have been playing Dragonquest VII, which is a truly lovely game, I'm having such fun with it, and enjoying its colorful world and vibrant music. It's really nice to disappear into my 3DS and play it.
Why doesn't Samus have a butt stomp move? How come Raiden has no dick? What's really behind those unclimbable walls in ________ game? Where's the Southpark spoof of Elderscrolls games called "ToiletRim?" How do you get out of that pit in E.T.? What kind of crap construction company built the barricades in Space Invaders? How come there still hasn't been a female protagonist in a GTA game? Is Link an non-English speaking illegal alien trying not to alert the INS by remaining silent?!?!?
