Hello folks, and welcome to another week of RPGamer editorials! Sadly, I don't think I have any adventures to speak of this week. I mean, I always make it a point to try and have an adventure once a week, even if its something small. I think the only adventure I had was losing my DS charger and then finding it buried at the bottom of my purse. Purses are stupid and deceiving. Also, this weekend I have to go to my boyfriend's work staff party, and it is 'semi-formal'. Semi-formal clothes? Psst! Like I have those! I'm the girl who goes to work dressed in jeans and a geeky t-shirt. A dress? Nice skirt? Feh! Those aren't pants! Besides, I don't think anyone would want to see this curator in a dress.
Despite nearly losing my DS charger, having to dress in 'semi-formal' attire and my school still being on strike, I did get a nice surprise this week: tickets to see Jerry Springer: The Opera. Yes, it exists, is profane, and, yes, will be an amazing experience. Sadly, I'm not seeing the show until the end of the month, so here's hoping between now and then that I'll have another adventure to share with everyone.
Any ways, enough of the babble! Onward to the gaming front! What have I accomplished lately? I've been making steady progress in Persona 3: FES, as I've finally hit over 40 hours. This game has some really fantastic moments, and you have to love Junpei for being the comic relief, especially in "Operation Babe Hunt". I have a total crush on Junpei, what can I say? I have also been playing Rune Factory 2, and apparently, pregnancy takes nine days to happen! Thanks Rune Factory for teaching me the facts of life!
On the editorial front I have two submissions. One from JuMeSyn, and the other from Michael "Macstorm" Cunningham! JuMeSyn discusses good old fashioned turn-based combat systems and their inconsistency over the years, while Macstorm tackles the idea of RPGs going green. Goin' green? Sounds a bit odd when you think about it, but Mac's article is extremely convincing. Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle? Can they really be such a bad thing for an RPG? Perhaps, perhaps not. Both articles tackle some interesting issues related to developers, so read and respond! I think these two pieces are worth the comments. As always, please submit. I look forward to having more interesting and thought-provoking pieces to share with everyone!
