Death and taxes.

I don't know what country you live in, but there are plenty of exceptions to taxes here in the US.  I'm just not rich enough to be one of them.

The immortal jellyfish. :)

The funny thing about not paying taxes is that its a lot like not dying. Eventually, somebody's going to catch up with you, no matter how good you are at cheating the system (and if not you personally, then your estate, your holdings, your family, etc).

And with Dead or Alive 5's story mode, I've got my Four in February. Now nobody can say I don't participate in that retarded monthly goals fad.

Great - now you've got me thinking "what rules are there no exceptions to?"  I'd say gravity, but there's probably something out there that doesn't obey gravity like we'd expect.

Death and taxes.

I'm pretty sure we're getting XIII-3, XIVmk2, and the next iOS/Browser warez, but beyond that is a total mystery.

Let alone, what they're doing with DQX and the DQVII remake.

In case anyone hasn't seen it: the trailer for Die Hard 12 (from the short-lived Ben Stiller show).

I looked around, and I don't think I've posted it here before, even though I feel like I have.  It's awesome, and Ben Stiller does a surprisingly good John McClane.

For a second there, I thought you were referring to Ben Stine, which lead me to wonder if you were referring to something besides those clear eyes commercial, that one game show, and a few bit parts in a few movies where he might have had the opportunity to play as somebody other than Ben Stine (the answer, thankfully, continues to be no, he didn't).

Relevant to recent Die Hard discussion.  I hope it's real.  I love foreign names for American films.  The French version of "The Departed" was called "Agents Troubles".  It was darling.

Shoes are serious business.

Haha I loved the jazz ones -- some of them sound so legit!!


You can really see how rapidly she started aging there. She was a braless sweetheart in a new hope but by the time Jedi rolled around she was beginning to show some rough edges. It's a shame, she was very pretty.

I wonder how much of that was hard living or just bad genes

That pic wasn't from ANH. That was TESB.

And at least she was still hot enough to pull off the sex slave outfit in early RotJ (also, that was still pretty hot for the 80s).

They should start making the oscars anatomically correct and by anatomically correct I mean anatomically incorrect but in the lewdest and most obvious way possible.

Only if they stop calling them Oscars and start calling them Olivias.

Wait? This mutant's still alive!? What the Fuck!


Looks like past me was right. Now we'll get to see the exploding adventures of explosions Marine Corp Casey, explosions sopping wet April, and explosions (with appearances by these guys even more explosions) after all. But hey, Battleship was worth a few good 'butt of the joke' jokes so its not a total loss (even if my faith in humanity was).

IMO, the safe money is on XIII-3 getting a Japanese release date and another iOS title to cash in on (maybe a Versus prequel chapter or some horseshit). The unlikely bet though would be Versus getting renamed XV and a prequel iOS title cash in (they've abandoned everything else about that XIII compilation thus far, they just need to finish it off with a Versus conversion), which I'm falling back on in case Batman Lightning Returns comes out before then. The "Goddammit Japan!" bet would be an FF heroine dating sim (or god help us, an FF hero Otome game) because the FF brand has been slapped on games from every other genre that doesn't take effort to make (they haven't made an FF themed platformer yet, but I'm not going to hold my breath on that one since that would involve effort on Squeenix's part). And finally the "It's too goofy to not be a distinct possibility!" bet is when Squeenix reveals XV and it turns out to be a Browser based game like Farmville.

Honestly though, I just want those 3DS remakes of FFs V and VI already.

Fake Edit: Plus you know that when Squeenix inevitably rename Versus into XV they're going to come up with the cheesiest/Engrishy justification for it (Future Quote; Squeenix Guy: "So the 'X' in the number stands for the ties XV shares with the epic XIII saga while the 'V' represents the formerly named 'Versus'. Brilliant as usual!").

Nevermind the Tiger, Life of Pi was as CG heavy as Star Wars Episodes 2 and 3 except with better everything else.

Levels in AW are designed with forming strategies around the AI's behavior in mind. If the AI didn't focus APCs some levels would be impossible to S rank. Dismissing AW over its AI behavior is a poor reason imo considering levels are designed around manipulating it. In fact taking advantage of poor AI is a keystone of most tactics games in general, so there's no reason to single out AW.

Once again surrounding a fighter with infantry and waiting for it to explode from lack of fuel is unrealistic at best, and I challenge you to find a single AW campaign or war room level where it's a viable strategy for getting a top score.

No. The ranking criteria is designed around the AI's actions. If IS intentionally meant to design a game around faulty AI then they wouldn't have fixed it in the later games.

And for the love of god, when I pointed out the idea of taking out a Fighter by surrounding it with Infantry, I was not talking about efficiency! I was referring to my greater need to suspend my disbelief while playing AW over FE (and also to a certain Webcomic Strip that I'm too lazy to dig up at the moment).

I don't want to halt discussion of the game, or even differing opinions but the thread is going to go to shit if this keeps up. When both parties reach an impasse it's better just to go back and go down a different path.

Now, that being said. I've started up a new game. The three save slots are nice.

Tell me about it. If this were a Squeenix game you'd have the one save slot at best and no suspend or midbattle save features either.
