Eye Will Not Cry

It’s been over ten years…
She looked almost the same…
He didn’t have the courage…
To even speak her name…
What could he say…
Where would he begin…
So much time has passed…
Since their encounter with sin…
 
Her eyes hadn’t changed…
But the fire had gone…
She was a pale shadow of…
That temptress of wrong…
So he stood and he watched…
Like the coward he is…
Remembering how it ended…
The hurt that still exists…
 
How she lured him in…
And he fell into the trap…
Of no strings liaisons…
How she began to attack…
When he backed away…
Realised it was not right…
She demanded much more…
But he slipped out of sight…
 
And went back to reality…

This week, Music to My Ears is looking back on a great game that could have been even better.

Tales of Vesperia was one of the better entries in the Tales series. To me, a lot of that comes from the cast of characters. Protagonist Yuri Lowell breaks a lot of the standard archetypes for these games — instead of constantly allowing villains to get away and do more damage, he just kills them off. It’s pretty legit.

So why could it have been better? Only because Vesperia got a follow-up release on the PS3 that included bonus characters, fights and features over the original, and that version never made it to the United States. You want Flynn to be playable? TOO BAD SUCKERS.

Fury Sparks only appears once…

I took advantage of being at the seaside to lay in a store of sucking stones. They were pebbles but I call them stones I distrutibed them equally between my four pockets, and sucked them turn and turn about. This raised a problem which I first solved in the following way. I had say sixteen stones, four in each of my four pockets these being the two pockets of my trousers and the two pockets of my greatcoat. Taking a stone from the right pockct of my greatcoat, and putting it in mv mouth , I replaced it in the right pocket of my greatcoat bv a stone from the right pocket of my trousers, which I replaced by a stone from the left pocket of my trousers, which I replaced by a stone from the left pocket of my greatcoat, which I replaced…
