Lufia II

"I hear there are monsters in the North Cave."
"Yeah."
"Are you going away again?"
"Well, that's my job."
"Be...be careful..."
"I'll be alright."
"You always say that. But I always worry."
"I'll get them but you have to buy them, Tia."
"I will."
"Well, see ya."

I had to load my one of my favorite old SNES games today, Lufia II. It's kinda sad. I have learned a fair amount in college but all I really want to do at some deep level is read fantasy and play RPGs.

I had to load up it up. I just felt too nostalgic to resist. We'll see how long I can go before the guilt of avoiding productive activity catches up with me.

I love the Lufia games. The SNES RPGs were awesome. I haven't gotten any RPGs for later systems -- they look too pretty and melodramatic to be fun. (Action games are much better, though, as are adventure games.)

Sweet. :)

Yeah, I really don't like console RPGs. Haven't really liked them since grade-school. PC RPGs are still great - games like Fallout, Arcanum, and Baldur's Gate. You tried any of 'em?

These days I just play MUDs. Multi-User Dungeons. The ones I play are permanent death roleplaying games.

Check out Armageddon and Shadows of Isildur if you're curious.
