Current Quests – Week of 06/29/08

Greetings, people. No time for small talk this week, I’m just here to get in, whack the guy whom I set up with a fake date through the internet because he refused to pay Brucie his money who in turn proposed to me this ridiculously circuitous plan for revenge, and get out. Now, let’s get down to brass tacks.

Head honcho Derek “Roku” Cavin is having his way with some Noise in the wonderful world of The World Ends With You. When he’s not concerning himself with the latest Japanese fashion trends, he’s taking a stroll down memory lane in Megaman 3 and/or 4.

Jerry “XeroZohar” Swain, fresh off grasping the basics of video conferencing, has dedicated his spare time to Metal Gear Solid 4, trying to get a perfect stealth game going. He was last seen heading in the direction of Folklore, mumbling something about zero-zero-zero-zero, the weirdo.

Not to be outdone, Jordan “J_Sensei” Jackson is also enjoying a slice of Metal Gear Solid 4, although he has yet to be so ambitious in matters of stealth. Also occupying his playlist are Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones and Final Fantasy Tactics: Advance 2.

Both bow in reverent worship to Michael “Slayer of God” Kozinko’s dedication to Metal Gear Solid 4, whose recent exploits include convincing me that the game might actually be kinda fun. He’s good like that. Oh, and Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions is in there somewhere as well.

Michael “CactuarJoe” Beckett is enjoying himself some Etrian Odyssey II, along with some Mega Man-ing of his own, predominantly 4 and 5. At last report he feels 4 is really badly balanced. He also enjoys long walks on romantic dinners and people who are committed to the beach.

Erika “wolfraven” Lachapelle, honing her news reporting skills at a secluded mountain retreat with the mentor of Mike Royko, has gotten back to Suikoden V and Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. Her attempts at a one-character challenge have, quote, “been fun until everybody died”, unquote. We at RandomNPC are inclined to agree.

Cortney “Alethea” Stone has been keeping herself busy with Final Fantasy Tactics: Advance 2, and reportedly dismayed that enemies are incapable of breaking the rules. We anticipate the revelation that the main character’s job is to drag the supporting cast kicking and screaming back to their lackluster reality away from hot Viera women. Seriously Marche, what the hell is wrong with you?

T.J. “Nerdboy Himself” Condon, torn between his love of in-jokes and his love of not getting cleaved in two with a giant axe, has been atypically focused on gyros. Yes, the food. He has also taken a cursory appraisal of Final Fantasy Tactics: Advance 2. Incidentally, I just GIS’ed Viera to make sure I spelled that right, and saw not one but two awesome fanart pieces of Viera Red Mages. Personal interest piqued.

Speaking of myself, nothing fancy this time around. Getting back to Grand Theft Auto IV and having a leetle difficulty just getting around to haul Little Jacob out for some billiards or whatever. Gearing up for Arcanum yet again, largely to kill time until Too Human or Fallout 3 comes out, or as I like to call the latter, Jesus 2.

That’s us for this week, folks! Be good!
