PlayStation Store PS3 Avatars Rant

Each month, I turn on my PS3 to nab the free PS Plus games, and while I’m in the store, I decide to check out what’s new in terms of themes and avatars because I’m one of the few people out there that like them and may even spend money to purchase ones I like.

It is disheartening that the quality of the avatars found on the US and Canada stores has dramatically degraded over time. I’m unsure if other countries outside of Japan have also seen an influx of these, but if you haven’t then you should count your blessings.

Potpourri Post: Games & Life (… What else do I ever talk about? XD)

Gosh. It’s been almost a month, hasn’t it? I really should make more of an effort to post here seeing that I’m paying for the domain name but I spend most of my time on Twitter. ^^; In fact, part of today’s post will contain summaries of topics that I’ve yakked about there. That should make for an easy update, yes? XD Continue reading “Potpourri Post: Games & Life (… What else do I ever talk about? XD)”

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen – 2nd Playthrough Babbles

Ahoy! I started my New Game+ yesterday with the determination of completing the side quests that I missed from the previous playthrough. They are: Arousing Suspicion, Duchess in Distress, and Bad Business. I’m not sure how people can NOT miss Bad Business since it sounds like you have to enter Madeleine’s Shop to trigger it? I rarely ever go into it even though I’m always in that vicinity because of The Black Cat.

I’m also out to max out some of the knowledge of locations for my Pawn. Actually, I might not be able to since I think 2 out of the 4 require post-game quests and I’m not sure I’m going to stick around until the very end. But if I intend to get the trophies I missed during the very last part of the game then I’ll probably have to. .___.

Anyway, I may be updating this post through the day since I’m playing the game now. XD

Just a few more levels to go! X_X

Still working toward that platinum medal! Just got a few more levels till lv 99! It’s actually going much faster than I anticipated since I forgot that enemy levels in quests scale with the characters. XD

The Find missions confuse me. :V Every time I finish any of the ones that have a Find: [some item or whatever], the game doesn’t count it toward the total of Find-type quests I took. 😡 I don’t think it should matter that I’m using the Scroll of Return to leave dungeons since I already got the “Quest Successful” notice once I found the item.

Edit: Ah! It’s those Harvest quests that count … which is kind of messed up if you think about it. Regardless, it boosts up the “Find” total. ^^

Just need to get Find and Elimination to 15 each so that I’ll get the titles for them. More experience for me~~! 😀

Wish I could exchange SP for stuff. I maxed it out long ago. :E

Hmmm. Once I get to level 99, I’m gonna do the final fight again just for fun! >:3

Edit: Whee!


The final boss did next to no damage to my characters. ^^; ‘Twas a superbly boring battle. 😛
