Just downloaded the game, time to check it out. This game better not have creepy birds ;)

Yeah, that's what I was talking about when it came to having a weaker power amp, I just didn't have the right terminology to explain it (haha). Thanks guys, I'll look into some places now. I appreciate it again. :)

Thanks, I'll look into it. I'm primarily looking for something to use that won't mess up my speakers because I hear that if you use a power mixer/amp that is set for lower watt equipment, it'll ruin the speakers eventually. How much of that is true, I don't know, but I sure as heck don't want to test that theory.

I had a feeling that you were going to post as well, haha, thanks again! :)

If anyone else has their wisdom to bestow upon me that expands on this or something I should keep in account, please let me know. :)

That's very true, I limit my usage of profanity in front of my siblings because I don't want them talking like their older brother does. I've been a lot better than I used to be in highschool (I was a cuss mouth, only the good Lord knows how I became the better situated person I am now, Haha).

I'm pretty sure we can all live our lives without having to cuss at all.. not sure so much about the cigarettes, I've seen people who really need one to calm them down. They aren't compulsive smokers who need a puff every second, but just one every now and then when they are stressed. This is why I am never surprised if I see a musician pop a quick smoke before and/or after a performance... I know the feeling and it's not a great feeling. You can tell how excited I am for my juries in May. ;)

Went off topic...

Your brother is going to have to learn things the hard way when he's living on his own. My brother has somewhat the same traits with a lesser threat to us than what you are going through, but still is a bother to us all none the less. I don't want to talk badly of my brother because he means well, but I too would like to see his attitude to simmer down when we try to talk to him like an adult (He reacts like a child sometimes and will yell... for goodness sakes he's too old to be acting that way).

My parents are partially to blame for this because they don't believe in reason, rather they believe in "I AM THE LAAAW" (catch the reference ;) ), so my brother and I have to deal with their idea of justice in the household. By "Their Law", I'm pretty much letting you know that they are heavy hypocrites that won't follow their own rules. On one side, they can act like that because it is their home, but if you are going to use the "Do as I say, not as I do" method, for goodness sake don't do enough of so it just makes you look like Evil Monarchs.

I would like to see improvements in the household for the sake of my brother at the cost of his attitude and laziness. Once I see a change on his end, I know for sure that the rest will fall into position... or I'll force it myself because even I can take so much :).

This got a bit wordy...  but I understand where you are coming from. I can only tell you that with time will either comes improvement or failure... be sure not to succumb to it as well when they do fall for the sake of your mental and physical state.

I own two Harbinger HX151 15" 2-Way Speaker Cabinets and looking for either a Powered Mixer or separate Power amp + Mixer. My question is How do I determine if a powered mixer/mixer and amp is the right one for me speakers?

The last thing I, and pretty much anyway else, want to happen is have them both blow out with the warranty on them already passed their time period. I'll list the info below because linking to the site is just a pain when I can commence copy pasta here:


Quote
Harbinger HX151 15" 2-Way Speaker Cabinet Features:

    * 15" woofer with 2.5" high-temperature voice coil and 80 oz. magnet
    * 1.75: titanium diaphragm compression driver with 1" exit
    * 90 degrees (horizontal) x 40 degrees (vertical) horn
    * On-board crossover that offers a 12dB/octave network
    * Mounting Cup for Speaker Stand
    * Recessed handles
    * Heavy duty metal grille
    * Carpet covering

    * Frequency Response: 45 Hz 19 kHz
    * Nominal Impedance: 8 Ohms

I may be a musician, but when it comes to the actual audio equipment... meh. My forte is with what wires to use in certain situations, not audio equipment knowledge. Thanks for you help, I really appreciate it!

For all we known it could have been Macgyver in disguise and the shoe was actually one of his wacky inventions filled with explosives. Craziness.

Steve Reich "You Are (Variations)"
Dmintri Alexiiv "Chopin: Waltzes"
The Best of "25 Classical Favorites"
Glenn Gould "Bach: The Goldenberg Variations"

I'm pretty excited to listen to these all... not sure if anyone around here would feel the same way. :)

Looking forward for that review. I enjoyed the one for the PS2, but would like to think that they both are good. Good things afoot?
1449  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Article - Best RPG of last generation... DQ8? on: March 14, 2009, 05:07:23 PM
Radiata Stories reminded me of a bad comedy sitcom.
Dark Cloud 2 had great music, kept me interested, and I'm a fool when it comes to cel-shaded games.

I never played any Dragon Quest game, only Dragon Warrior Monster for the Game Boy. I want to give DQ8 a try, but I just get a bad vibe when I hear the name.

Nothing too Mind-f*ck related so far. I've been doing a log on bugs I find in the game but placed that on hold. It's pretty fun and I think you'll like it... but believe me I'll let you know if any MF are presents. ;)

Independent games are interesting because everyone has a vision for a game.  Unfortunately, there are a lot of times where that vision comes off as amateurish with a gamut of typographical errors, random infinite conversation loops, and so on.  Sometimes I think people are so obsessed with trying to implement whatever custom system to make the game stand out that they sort of forget to make the game itself an engrossing endeavor.  One way or the other though, it's a huge investment to finish a game.

I couldn't agree more.

EDIT: Didn't feel like double posting, but I'm going to start up a quick blog to chronicle the progress of the game. I'll post the link here or start a thread about it later.
1452  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Response to Final Final Dungeon editorial ***SPOILERS*** on: March 13, 2009, 12:18:30 AM
I just started playing Final Fantasy 8 yesterday and noticed 8 in the talks. I'm restarting the game now because I picked up a new copy, my old one is deceased, and I barely have any recollection of it's difficulty.  Right now the game is insanely easy because I keep my guys life ~1/3 so they can use their limits, but should I be expecting a high difficulty spike soon?
1453  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Where are all the indie console games? on: March 12, 2009, 01:50:17 AM
Very interested in that Piersolar RPG... definitley will look into it in the future. :)
1454  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPG Makers on: March 12, 2009, 12:52:41 AM
Well I'm back and here to give you some news on the game.

I was running a trial version of the software and only ran its bones dry from nourishment. Little did I know that I would end up going through a finical bind (my job cut me down to 5 hours a week, ouch, but I live). All this did was prevent me from buying the license and work on the mapping of the game itself. This isn't to say that the game is scrapped, but rather it is on hold in the mapping department.

I was actually able to organize my thoughts and think up scenarios, scripts, realistic goals and original music in that time. I would tell you things about the game, because God knows I'm excited when I write the dialogue up, but I'm worst enemies with spoilers. The only thing I will leave you with is the Main Character's name, which is Seagull.

Good day sir.
