Your parents are the ones who should be teaching you good habits about spending, saving, credit cards, etc. I have great credit because I pay off my card every month. I save as much as possible. Even when I got my first part-time job, my dad told me to save half of the paycheck and the rest could be spent on whatever I want.

I don't see the point in having teachers teach a subject like this, especially when most of them probably went to a private college and have $100K in student loans.

Doubt anyone here watches college football, but the Ohio State and Penn State game is definitely one of the best games I've ever seen.

As probably the only conservative here, I moved from the Midwest to the South, so not much of a cultural change for me except that people are much nicer in the South and it seems like, just from my experience, is more integrated. I'm not saying that people get along better or that racism doesn't exist, buy I see more places down here where black and white people are seen together. When I lived in Ohio, it was easy to never be around black people because of how segregated Toledo is. White people live in their areas and the black people live in theirs.

Anyway, I live in a fairly liberal area and it doesn't bother me. I'm able to avoid the Trigglypuffs around here, and as long as loony people like that leave me alone, all is good. I moved to Raleigh for career opportunities.

I'll get my waterwings on and be right over!

You're going to hate Indiana, goose.

Oh no! Why? D:

Indiana is, for the most part, a socially conservative state (as is most of the Midwest).

News at 10: Games come out on different systems.

Up next: Electricity? How vital is it for video gaming.

I know, right? I was on Gematsu earlier and 90 of the comments were about people bitching that the game isn't coming to the PS4.

I liked it a lot! Yoon Si Yoon was amazing in the drama. His character showed great growth throughout the drama. One of the main characters (Jihoon) irked me because was too old (23) to be acting all angsty for as long as he did.

I feel weird for only have 25 teeth. One of my bottom incisors never came in, I had two molars on top removed when the dentists rearranged my teeth before getting braces, and had all four wisdom teeth come out.

Are you watching anything new lately? Lately I've been watching 20th Century Boy and Girl, While You Were Sleeping, Because This Life is our First, and Reunited Worlds. Recently finished The Best Hit earlier in the month.

Rucks, if you wrote a book about all the crazy shit that happens at work, I'd buy it.

I recommend sedation for wisdom teeth removal. I got all four removed at once and was sedated. Didn't feel a thing until a week later when my meds ran out.

My PS3 controller died and the extra I had got lost during my move, so I plan on getting a new one tomorrow. In the meantime, I started SMT IV since I wanted a handheld to play.

My company fully covered 10 sessions I had with a specialist. Insurance covered about 1/3 of the costs with the general physician, but I didn't see him as much as the specialist, so I probably only spent around $400 out of pocket, which was good considering how much treatment I was getting. Well, it was my former company's awful working conditions that lead to all of the problems, so I took full advantage of their policies.

Already 27 hours into Trails of Cold Steel 2. Gonna have to start playing slower from here on out, but this game and its predecessor have rekindled my love for RPGs.
Hurray! More love for Cold Steel 2. So what specifically about the Cold Steel games have you been loving that you felt other games have been missing?

Well, it's not that other games have been missing things, it's just being older and having more responsibilities that limits my time available for gaming and other hobbies, so I need really good games to keep my attention.

What I think ToCS 1/2 (not as fun to write out as TiTS, and will need to play those in the future) does very well is character development, world building, story, and battle system. It's rare for a game to have all of those elements, and usually the SMT series is the only other series that has all of these qualities, but even then, the main line of SMT games usually favor the world building while the character development is nonexistent. Or there are games like the Tales game that have great characters and a great battle system (or in some recent entries between Graces f and Berseria, an average one), but don't have the best plots (though Abyss has my favorite plot in the series).

Spoiler for those who haven't played ToCS yet: [spoiler]I love the Divine Knight battles as I am a huge mecha fan![/spoiler]

Also ToCS has my RPG waifu Claire.

I've been playing Trails of Cold Steel and I'm at the final boss in the old schoolhouse. I have tried twice (even tried with the option of weakening the boss after dying) and then another time and cannot defeat him. I have tried using Crafts to delay the boss (using Rean, Gaius and Jusis) and then having Rean and Emma spam Impassion to keep CP up and use Chrono Drive to make my characters faster, but the fucking boss after some time just ignores the huge time delay he should have and then starts fucking up my characters. I've watched several gameplay videos to see if I did anything wrong and saw that people were winning with different strategies and party members.

Maybe I just need to level grind, but yuck.

EDIT: Literally spent all day (not kidding) finishing this game. Was able to figure out a strategy to win without taking much damage, but damn did those battles take a while.

Also, all of those twists at the end! I didn't see most of them coming. I'll just say that I'll be going around the city trying to find the Trails of Cold Steel 2, but will probably take a break from gaming until December (I have CPA exams to study for and was distracted by playing Cold Steel because this game is incredibly engrossing. Definitely a Top 5 JRPG for me.

The final boss took about 4 tries for me. The problem for me was I only had 2 characters that had accessories to block vanish. Eventually I won by having Rean, Alicia, and Jusis (with Laura and the force orb coming in late) all clumped together with Sharon way on the other side of the screen. The boss kept going after sharon (Sharon had high magic/damage evasion and I think she had a high defense and orb that attracts?). Jusis used platinum shield, Rean used s-crafts and the other character buffed CP with techniques or that final recipe that gives you 77CP. I never used chrono drive to my knowledge.

Cold Steel 2 is just as good. I wish I could play it for the 1st time again.

How did you have Sharon for the final boss in ToCS 1?
