oh, interesting. i stopped checking this forum a while ago and then came back a month or two ago and was kinda sad about how these forums seem so dead, and it seemed weird to me since the site itself seems to be doing well what with the regular content and podcasts and whatnot. i guess everyone went to discord. i've been meaning to install that anyway since i've had a few people suggest i join (mostly people i've played cs:go with). i guess i'll get on there at some point..

i'll always miss this style of forum but i think it's safe to say it's becoming more and more irrelevant with time :(

wow that is so true. using the defend move is clutch, but it's a complete gamble if you don't know if it's gonna activate when you want it to. i'm currently replaying skies of arcadia (the gamecube remake so i can finally get all the discoveries and chams without the broadband adapter i never had), and trying to defend in ship battles and getting screwed over by not only failing to defend, but also completely wasting a turn, is infuriating. luckily the game is pretty easy regardless. lol

better does not necessarily mean ideal/perfect. 

Both versions of FFXII have flaws in story, gameplay, and interface.  The best part about that game was the Gambit system because I could custom tailor to my exacting tastes how I wanted my companion AI to act, and have been spoiled ever since.  That's another one of my pet peeves is companion AI that's so absolutely brainless (even with rudimentary options on how I want them to act) that I have to babysit them or they'll blow themselves up.  That is not fun.

RPGs that want me to rely on AI companions are always a non-starter for me. I dunno why, but I find it infinitely frustrating when someone on my team does something stupid. Like you say, FFXII's gambit system did a decent job of correcting that but I still didn't find that particular brand of micromanagement very fun.

I'd usually find the idea of a video game watch way too kitschy but that pretty much looks cool so I can dig it.

Yeah I'm expecting it to be pretty slow paced but I think I'm ready for that. I've been wanting to watch something really serious that I can sink my teeth into. One of the reviews I read actually said it takes 60 (!!) or so episodes to really get going. lol

Has anyone here seen Legend of the Galactic Heroes? I'm thinking that might be my next series to watch. I'm only like 30 episodes into Hunter X Hunter and I wanna finish that first but I've been reading about LotGH and I'm pretty excited to watch it already. It's a very long series though, like 150 episodes or something like that. Just wondering if you guys had any opinions about it....

Maybe people were worried about Caitlyn lashback? I saw lots of rants about Caitlyn costumes online.

Perhaps, but I don't think that would necessarily stop a boy from dressing up as a girl for Halloween.  I feel like "boys dressing up as girls" is a Halloween trend that waxes and wanes, but never really disappears, since every Halloween there's always at least a few boys who dress up as girls.  At work, I saw a male student wearing a French maid outfit complete with high heels.  Dressing up as a girl is one thing, but wearing the high heels too- that's commitment.

And I feel like most any costume can be offensive when looked at through that lens.  Like at work, I overheard an Asian girl (who opted not to dress up) joking about, "Maybe I should've just worn a panda costume, be racist against myself."  That's when I started thinking, "Holy shit, a seemingly innocent costume of a cute animal is becoming social commentary these days.  A panda is not just a panda any more."  

Of course, yes, there are several costumes people could adorn that are truly offensive.  *I* would be offended if some dude wore a tattered dress and painted bruises all over himself and said "I'm a rape victim, hur hur hur."  No.  You're a fucking asshole.  Burn in hell. 

My roommate dressed as Randy-as-Lorde from South Park last year, and it was insanely funny and kind of disturbing.

Me and a friend of mine both had the same random weekday off today and we hung out with a mutual friend who is currently unemployed and has every weekday off. We threw a frisbee around in the park, caught the ice cream truck on the way home, and then played Mario Party 7. I lived the day of a 12 year old today and it was pretty awesome. And now I'm going to play Settlers of Catan with some other friends. Life is good.

I still think FFX had the best battle system in the series.  Too bad it was only used for 1 game. 

Second to X-2 in my opinion. Although I did like the bit of creativity the materia system allowed.

finally listening to the new (2014) godflesh album, SDM approves

I have a 2DS, so it's not like it bothers me. 3D is just a gimmick that is unnecessary in gaming.

yeah fuck polygons

Fall on the floor, claim you are pregnant, and cry while stating you hope the baby is ok. The parent will freak out and...let's just say that kid won't behave badly ever again.

Btw, only do this if you're ok with ruining someone's day completely, and are ok with knowing that the kid is gonna get such an ass whipping, like life changing beating.

(Don't do this, it's terrible)

i love this post

i hate nice shirts

also, maxximum is giving good advice. on dating sites, like it or not, women are going to be judging you at least partially based on looks. smile and wear a nice shirt, you'll be good <3
also also, deadlifting 400lbs is crazy, good for you
