I don’t have a lot else to say about the comic. It tip toes around the 4th wall. We have some plans to blast through it full speed next week.

My weekend was mostly devoted to the martial arts, but I did have time last night to go back and restart Odin Sphere on the PS3’s digital version.

It runs pretty well, but it’s still too early to tell if some of the slowdown issues will be fixed with the disc reads removed from the equation. Emulations of NES games often still have the same quirks as their cartridge based brethren. I do think the load times are faster though. It’s a start.

I also find the game more enjoyable having some upfront knowledge of the alchemy and plant growing systems, which are slightly complicated and heavily intertwined. I recommend that, if you decide to try the game, you consult an FAQ on it them, rather than waiting for the game to teach you how its systems work.
