So that method of multiplication might help you learn basically, but it's REALLY tedious, especially with larger numbers. And frankly, I've always been of the opinion that rote memorization of your times tables is one of the very few times that memorizing something is the best way to use it. And I'm not talking the concept of multiplication, but rather the ability to do two or more digit multiplication. In my history of teaching, I've never found any student who was able to effectively do two+ digit mental or written multiplication quickly and accurately who had not learned his or her times tables via rote memorization.

Also that's the 'FOIL' method, except for being used in a much more symbolic way and isn't dealing with unknown variables.

Edit: And that tree fails for only having Ryu Dragon Punching the top of the tree and no other Capcom character (I guess the others will be sold at Hallmark over the next couple of years; just need to assemble the collection; I wonder if Ken will be next or will Chun Li kick her way onto store shelves).

FUN FACT. The uhhh, goblins? I dunno, in Condie Petie are speaking Scots!

Funny enough, that's a Ragtime mouse questions.  They're NOT Godlins, they're DWARFS!!!!  That's so, like, racist. D:



The party questions have not helped me at all.... I'M TORN.

If it's late enough that you actually get a choice in the matter then just go with your favorites.


Meanwhile I ended up getting my shit wrecked in Jade Empire twice in fairly short order. The first from those demons up in Heaven (although the true demon was the camera because all I could see was T&A before getting wrecked by status effects galore) and the second from the cannibal mother boss fight (which hit like a fucking truck shot out of a cannon, and of course Dawn Star just has to pick this moment to take off while the rest of the cavalry decided to sit back and enjoy the show).

Final Fantasy IX
Pretty much doing the Chocobo world tour to get items.  Hmm trying to determine:
Eiko vs Garnet?
Amarant vs Steiner vs Freya?
Quina vs???

The moogle side quest is annoying, I'm missing 2 letters and I don't know where the hell where.  I heard the reward kinda sucks though...

Garnet all the way. Dat Ass says it all. But seriously, Eiko simply surpasses Garnet with Madeen, the Carbunkle variations, and Raisega.

Freya, no joke. Though it loses it's uniqueness later on, Dragon Crest is still the fastest way to the damage cap of 9999....

Outside of Quina that is, and it's Angel Whisper/Limit Glove combo. And then there's the other usual Blue Magic shenanigans. Also 100 frogs are no where nearly as irritating to get as 200 lightning bolts since you don't lose all of them if you miss one and is far more rewarding with a sicknasty Frog Drop than a better Onion Knight plushie.

What do you need to break down breakable walls in Mega Man Legends?

The Drill Arm.

Although there are some destructible blocks that can also be destroyed by various grenades or explosive projectiles (including one ceiling panel in a late game dungeon).

Either way, the SO series has a great atmosphere and general setting that allow great room for new ventures.  The whole sci-fi/fantasy is a lot of fun for great new settings.  And that's one thing SO4 got right, the scenery was pretty to look at.

This just reminds me that we could stand to have more Sci-fi/Fantasy RPG hybrids than just SO, PS, ME, and RG.

Or at least a Sci-fi/Fantasy RPG that doesn't feel like it was written by somebody who's too terrible to write bad anime.

Didn't care for the Magnet Man stage remix and the editing gets a bit clumsy later on but overall its pretty good.


new Epic Rap Battle of History is Moses vs. Santa Claus.  Moses is portrayed by Snoop Dogg.  Not joking.

Who's Snoop Dogg? I only know of a Snoop "Lion".

Common misconception, it was not a snake, but a Raptor that convinced them to eat the forbidden fruit. drink that forbidden lemonade.

Fixed to further smash the atheist homosexual's agenda.

Someone didn't do a very good job balancing that system

It's a tri-Ace game.  They are as balanced as someone with two inner-ear infections.

Truth be told, I prefer it to be as breakable as all hell.

My bigger concern is whether breaking the game over my knee is worth the effort to break the game over my knee rather than to just play it straight (see: SO2; sure my entire party is level 100 and I have the components for the Eternal Sphere before the tourney, but what good is any of that when the remainder of disk 1 and a good chunk of disk 2 is completely littered with unwinnable boss fights and scripted losses when I could've spent far far less time progressing normally to have achieved the same effect).

Moar Deathclok-wannabe Chocobo/Boss Fight themes? :laffo:

Or were these the people who composed the bland elevator music used in the rest of XIII-2?

Sure, and every soundtrack of FF has to be composed only by Uematsu because every other mofo is a talentless losers according to the most deluded fans of the series.

Alright. Then name or link one memorable track from FFXIII-2 (that wasn't one of those goofy Death Metal tracks). Go on, I'll wait.

Heart of Chaos, Eclipse and Eclipse Aggressive Mix, Divine Conflict, Historia Crux,  Caius' Theme, Labyrinth of Chaos, Eternal Paradox... wait, sorry, you were wanting us to not have an answer, right?  :)

I rescind my previous comments and concede my point.

Edit: Jesus Christ; I am an idiot! The idea that I was trying to convey was that I 'cede my argument'. "Concede my point." sounds way too much like terrible innuendo ("All right baby, you win. I concede my point to your hole.").

I'm not going to play that game. I respect everyone's opinion about the series but sometimes the hate gets ridiculous.

Alright. But to be fair, I too, am well aware of the fact that Uematsu's past his musical prime barring some kind of random musical experimental success.

Plus, I genuinely don't remember much from the game's soundtrack beyond the completely out-of-place J-Death Metal, and the fact that at one point during the LP of the game I was watching, the LPers decided to play some Xenoblade music over the game's (due to the boredom of grinding to MAXIMUM POWAR!!!). The game just seem to play it incredibly safe outside of the Death Metal, just like it did with the gameplay (outside of the platforming) by adopting towns, NPCs, collectathons, time travel, reducing playable caricatures from 6 to 2, and adding recruitable monster party members.

My 'beef' with this is mostly stemming from the fact that there are already so many retro Megaman fan games out there that I'm sort of failing to see what's so special with this one outside of the whole novelty of the crossover and Capcom's acknowledgement angle. Honestly, the retro Megaman card was played out by Megaman 10 and has long since been converted into the Retro Indie Game Designer's Lego Set, and if it weren't for the fact that its 'free to play' (I'll wait til I see what DLC they're planning on charging before I truly call it free) I would've written this as a lazy cash in on Capcom's part. But as it is, it's nice to see Capcom actually acknowledge two one of their fanbases for once (and is a far far far more worthy gesture to MM's 25th anniversary than fucking XOver).

Alternatively I could always wait for the Megaman X Super Hyper Street Fighter Alpha 2 Turbo CE HD release but they'll probably be charging money for that one.

SaGa Frontier 3DS remake. Re-implemented Fuse quest. Re-add Blue's original ending. Plus some new (character unique?) sidequests to make up for the other cut content (which really needed to have been cut, judging by the Ultimania guide).

Also 3DS remakes/ports of SD2 through Legend of Mana, with various AI, balance, and bug fixes, because seriously those games were buggy as hell (especially 2 and 3 (emphasis on the 3)).

Elemental Gimmick Gear 3DS port. Because EGG is really good and like nobody ever played it and that's toooo bad :(

I'd be tempted to say an expanded version of Chrono Cross (with battle speed ups. Seriously why were Square's games locked at like 20 FPS????) with extra sidequests for the characters, but Square would probably do something peculiar like make Schala evil like in the CTDS remake (What even WAS the impetus for that?).

3DS/PSP/PC translation of motherfucking Sega goddamn Ages Phantasy fucking Star 2 fucking remake SHIT.

Minstrel Song-esque remakes of Romancing Saga 2 and 3, because Minstrel Song was a beautiful lady and I want to merry her.

also I think Soul Blazer should come standard with every new console released, sort of like how Dinwows comes with Solitaira.

This except for the Soul Blazer just because you know nobody would do it (although if you made it Actraiser....), EGG because if they're just going to make VOTOMs the JRPG then they might as well just go and make a VOTOMs JRPG, and Chrono Cross (which had battle speedups but needed them for more than just NG+) which will probably get turned into an even bigger clusterfuck by adding 20+ characters, boring grindfest dungeons, and a brand new ending that both manages to retcon the previous ending while shoehorning in some half-assed connection to the FFXIII trilogy or some shit in a horribly unsatisfying way.

Also still sore from seeing that ad for the Sega Ages remake of Phantasy Star 1 in a local Shopko flier.

Whoops. Nearly forgot that Mass Effect 3 came out this year, and according to the VGAs its the best RPG of the year.
