Sorry again

Sorry I haven't updated for a while. Nothing really "journal-worthy" was happening, and I didn't feel like doing the Harry Potter thoughts for a while. But, to make up for it, here are some of my thoughts on Dragon Quest VIII.

-I always thought Baccarat was pronounced with a silent T. Also, has anyone else noticed that it has the same name as the casino from SaGa Frontier?
-Quests involving time are quite annoying. I realized this during the Baumren quest, during which I also found out how annoying Tom is with his constant cat puns. But sabrecats are rather cool.
-I've gained an eensy-weensy bit of respect for Jessica, since she ripped on Prince Charmles so much during the Argon Lizard subquest. But she's still really annoying, acting like the entire purpose of the hero's quest is to avenge her brother. Well, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration, but it's pretty close to the truth, right?
-Seven words: Multi-target instant kill spells kick ass. Once, I used Thwack on a group of Treevils (I think they were Treevils), and it killed all of them.
-Apparently, the fight with Dhoulmagus is coming up. It's going to be a nasty one, if what I've heard about it is true.

I'll close with one of my favorite RPG quotes.
“You intend to evolve Filgaia with the lost wisdom of Hyades? That is merely a misperception. It's like painting a lousy picture with expensive paint. And that lousy painter is you.”- Clive Winslet, Wild Arms 3

-Well, I was right about Jessica, but a bit off. I thought she'd be an "Angsty-Sue," but she's a "Bitch-Sue." Oh, well. Close enough.
-Say what you will, I like Angelo. Maybe it's just my love for silver-haired bishonen in general, or maybe it's the fact that the two of us have similar voices. But I like him.
-I really dislike King Trode. I actually hated him from the beginning of the game, thanks to his nearly getting the group kicked out of Farebury, but that flashback scene with Yangus just clinched it.

Well, that's all I've got to say for now. Be back soon! :)

Well, I've actually really gotten into DQVIII, so I thought I'd post some of my thoughts on it.

-A LOT of the characters in the game have really irritating voices.
-Bangerz and Mash...I get it. Very funny, SquareEnix.
-For some reason, I have a feeling that Miss Jessica Albert is this game's designated Mary Sue. Let's least four men madly in love with her (well, two boys and two men), powerful magic-user, from noble blood, and her "last will and testament" letter seems quite whiny and overly apologetic. BTW, I don't really like the term "Mary Sue" much. I just used it here because I couldn't think of a better one.
-Has anyone else noticed that the town theme for Alexandria sounds infuriatingly like that awful "It's A Small World" song? It does!

Well, I'll stop here. I'll traverse the Tower of Alexandria later today and hopefully get more thoughts. TTFN!
