946  The Rest / General Discussions / Your First Ebay Purchase... on: January 19, 2012, 02:08:45 PM
Weird topic to bring up but I thought it might spark a bit of nostalgia (or awareness of prodigality) in you guys and gals.

My first ebay purchase wasn't intentional...I was messing around with an ebayer who really wanted a copy of Thousand Arms for the Playstation. I've always wanted to give it a try but had no intention on buying it. I saw a copy of it for 15 (starting bid) and bid on it out of boredom. I noticed someone else wanted it (a lot more than I) and posted .50 over my bid. This continued until I stopped at around $20 (I forget the actual price) when I pretended to not show interest and stop bidding...and at this time I knew this guy, or girl, had bid that .50 cent over me. Knowing myself and other ebayers, I was very aware that they would have added more than just that .50 cents to secure their bid...so at the last 5 seconds of the bid I dropped a 1.50 (something like that) over and won. Needless to say I got myself a copy of Thousand Arms not because I really wanted it...just because I wanted to test how far a buyer would go to achieve their coveted game.

I do not own the game any more, in fact I sold it to one of the members of this board, but now you know the story of my first ebay transaction and the story of how I achieved that game.

Was your first ebay purchase as much an unnecessary war as mine? ;)

Hey, hey, can I just post a picture of ME here for the "amazing pictures" part????

Wait, am I to understand you are this smiley face that has littered the Internets since it's origin?
A new level of respect has been made for you on this day.

Finally came.  Hurrah.  The case is kind of too big and I don't have anywhere good to put it :sadface:.  Also case window with lights is facing against my cabinet.  Ah well. 

Also pleased that I can whore out my browser with 30 tabs open again and not get slowed down.  Huzzah!

Quick glance; thought it was a mini washing machine.

Hm. I thought this was some sort of announcement that they were remaking this for the 3DS :/

The trailer is cool considering you made it yourself.

Good stuff. Thought the bubble one was pretty cool too. :)

I am going to be teaching at the university as part of one of my classes this semester. I am excited.

What subject?

Don't know if you're down with The Doctor, Lucca, but if so, you're either going to love this or hate it:


Love this!

Suiko V's normal ending made me die a little inside.

I was not expecting to get all the characters in V, so I decided to see the what the ending was for a Complete run and was met with a happy ending. But because i knew that the ending for V was happy because a complete run...well then I didn't want to come to a tragic end. I rather keep my tragedies in my western lit readings.

Another game that had the worst plot twist of all time was Eternal Sonata (Those who play it know what I'm talking about).
Honestly, Chopin as the final boss? He's perhaps the biggest ninny I've ever witnessed in video games, aside from Mike Dawson from Dark Seed II. I would have given Tri-crescendo $1k for them to make it Franz Liszt, or even better George Sand.
The credits were....

And speaking of ninnies (in case you read the spoilers), Mike Dawson from Dark Seed II. Great ending, or Greatest?
Jack is officially my favorite character in video games, PERIOD.


But let's end on a positive note...

I liked Fragile's ending....anyone else like it?

955  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The RPGFan Community Grimoire of Social Networking on: January 09, 2012, 12:02:33 AM
Twitter - I use twitter to check up on new game soundtracks/fan releases and check out other game music composers. My tweets range from music of both classical and game origins to retweets of about anything that catches my interest.

Rhythmroo.com - While it may not be a social networking site...you'll get a better idea of my likes and dislikes in music, which is very relevant to the topics I engage in much of my conversations. I like game music...what can I say? [It's currently set on Private until I fix one last item on there]

I want to do this in real life. :|

You want to slap a beard on people? Please tell me that's the first objective on your resumes. ;)

Give Echochrome a listen on youtube...you might like it. Either that or Rule of Rose.

If you're looking for chamber music for a serene or melancholoic expression (or slow), those might work.

But if you'd like a better recommendation....perhaps a bit more detail on your likes and dislikes? What music did you like in Catherine? The original stuff or the classical stuff?
