I'm just happy that this dude is in SCV.

Oh and Dampierre too if you pre-order.

While I'm pissed they decided to make Dampierre DLC only; the sound of this game's create-a-soul's depth and versatility could mean that I could make my own Dampierre. Also coming back would be Cassandra, Taki, and anyone else who didn't make the cut officially that I main'd.

Pardon the necro but...

The second most important feature of the last two games has returned. Now your SC videos can have even more convincing Ichigo and Naruto facsimiles while everyone else will either max out the breast slider or make the biggest gaylords.

I've played both Fate/Stay Night and Fate/Hollow Ataraxia. However, like Neal advised, I'm hanging out for a review on this spin-off. All I know about the gameplay is what I've seen from the videos, and it didn't really grab me. Once it's out, and if people are saying its good, then I may import it. However, the idea of having Arcueid as my Berserker servant is quite tempting. She was awesome in Tsukihime. Otherwise, I like the design of the male Saber.

Uh....What?

First, you don't actually need to import it (unless you live in the UK).

Second, I don't think Arcueid is in this.

And finally I don't think there's a male Saber involved in this either.

Unless I missed something....Oh yeah, we're getting this and Black Rock Shooter but no Xenoblade. I'd call it quits with gaming except that Skyward Sword is less than a month away.

Nevermind the fact that outside of an anime that covers about a third of the source material (badly), a prequel anime that isn't bothering to explain shit, and now this game that also is probably isn't going to explain shit; the only way to get a handle on this series is to read an LP, do the usual import/apply translation patch, wikipedia it, visit fansites or have a fan explain it to you, or involve illicit means.

Video footage of both games. Confirms another character's return and shows off Black Cybuster which is indeed not piloted by Asakim.

2) Double jump is awesome

1) would you rather eat one of the turkeys from a Final Fight garbage can ?


or


2) mammoth meath from Tail of the Sun

2) I'm going to assume you meant mammoth meth, which is clearly the best option. If it can get a giant hairy elephant high, it's good enough for me.

*

1) have parents who let you leave home at age 11 and never contact you, not even if you are saving the world

or

2) Have to save the world, but have your mother constantly following you and fussing over it.

Not answering since it's already been answered but Grandia III made the best case for option 2. Of course it means that you have to be an insufferable twat with a crush on some mysterious insufferable twat and be on an adventure fueled by unleaded stupid to really be comparable (but at least you'll have a cool battle system to work with).

Who else thinks Mesh has mother issues?



I think he's been having one too many Deadly Premonitions.

People only hate grinding where it is required due to a steep rise in difficulty and brings your game to a halt until you walk around the immediate area getting whatever you need for hours. Having the right type-advantage is 90% of what you need in Pokemon and isn't necessary to progress in Pokemon as random encounters and the trainer battles along with way will level you up as necessary. Plus it's really easy.

Type advantage isn't everything in Pokemon though. Some pokes are stated to be terrible damage dealers and some pokes only have weak moves that cover their supposed type and/or are not geared to mesh with primary damage stat of the poke. Case in point in Sneasel/Weevil where you have a lightning fast bruiser with high physical attack and only one terrible physical Ice move available to it since most Ice moves are special based even TMing it a good Ice move wont help it much against a tank weak to that type.

#1 You never know when pockets of holding would come in handy.

1) Either be able to customize your stats

OR

2) Your appearance

1) stats




Have to play through mega man 2 in real life

or

mario 3 in real life




#1 Since you can dick yourself over in both games with the wall laser boss of MM2 and the select trap of SMB3 I'd take the shorter game.


1) Either have Navi follow you shouting "Hey! Listen!" and such

OR

2) Carry Baby Mario on your back and have all the gameplay aspects related to said task to worry about

Is manlength a stat or appearance?

Appearance. Same with breast size.

Though constitution and charisma are stats and fortitude and will power are based on constitution and wisdom plus without strength too much manlength result in an encumbrance penalty. Intelligence might net you a few more skill points to dump into the seduce and sex skills but it's really a dump stat since both of those are charisma and dexterity based skills and you can get enough skill points at level up anyway that you can still improve your proficiency if you forgo everything else (I guess the extra skill points could be dumped into the escape artist and rope tying if that's your thing).
4031  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A statistics question on: October 29, 2011, 07:49:02 AM
Either 33 and 1/3% or 12.5% depending on whether the correct answer is either of the other two numbers or one of the copies respectfully.

But that only considers if there's one correct answer of the four. Otherwise there can be anywhere from 2-4 correct answers or no correct answers at all which presents an additional 12 possibilities with either a 20% chance (none of the above as an unlisted or imaginary option E), a 16 and 2/3s% chance (if it's a combination of any two non imaginary choices), a 25% chance (if it's a combination of any three non imaginary choices), or a 100% choice (since all non imaginary choices must be taken anyways) and for the sake of the argument (and not having the options and probability spiral out into infinity) are all considered imaginary numbers like the ones in the paragraph above.

The tl;dr is that all the choices are bald face, dirty liars and that you've either have a 33.33ect% chance, a 25% chance, a 12.5% chance, or a 0% chance to get it right (which effectively equals a 25% chance).

Er...no.  This is completely wrong.  Well, you're right that the question doesn't have a right answer, but certainly not for the reasons you gave.  If this was a free response section of a test I was grading you would get 0 points.

The question is ill-formed.  The answer to the question depends on the answer to the question.  It is certainly fun to think about, though.  We can at least test the logical consistency of each possible answer.

Is it 25%?  Well, there are two out of four responses that say 25% so the odds of that are 50%.  It fails.

Is it 50%?  There is one out of four responses that says 50% so the odds of that are 25%.  It too fails.

There is a reason I changed C) from the original.  This version is much more fun.  In the original one might be tempted to conclude that the chance is 0% since none of the other choices work.  Now 0% is a choice!  But there's a 25% chance of choosing it, meaning it isn't logically consistent either...

Of course, if you think the 'true' answer is anything not on the list then the odds of selecting it become 0% and that's on the list, so that doesn't work...


Just for fun, here is a variation:

If you choose an answer to this question at random, what is the chance that you will be correct?

A) 25%
B) 50%
C) 100%
D) 50%

Same principle, of course, but now you have multiple 'correct' choices...


Except that what you just said has absolutely nothing to do with what I said past the fact that we're looking at the same problem. What I said completely disregards what the question says because the question is a dirty liar. The point is that the question is no longer about the mathematics posited by the question but the fact that the question has only four viable answers with a degree of uncertainty stored therein.

You have four choices A, B, C, & D; two of which are labeled identically but exist in different points and basically possess the clone conundrum where clones are not identical once they cease to share the same memories, the same building blocks, and the same points in space and time (and I REALLY don't want to go into this clusterfuck). Then it's a matter of the uncertainty of whether the question expects you to take one of the 25%s, both 25%s, one of the other choices, or neither as the question is pulling a Kobeyashi Maru on you leaving an undefined choice E.

The tl;dr is that trying to solve the posed question is bullshit since it's one of those illogical questions used to fry robot processors; thus you're left with either one of two possibilities for half of the possible answers being correct, both possibilities for half of the possible answers being correct, one of the two remaining possibilities being correct, or having no correct solution at all.

#2. Prototype QED.

1) Having to wear the exact same outfit that never wears out and never gets changed or dirty wherever you go no matter how ridiculous or impractical it may be to the situation at hand.

OR

2) Having to wear a ridiculously mismatched outfit that's either a full plate mail with 75 pounds of shoulder pads, spikes, and a helmet and can only comfortably fit Arnie or 5 pounds of chainmail bikini, thigh high boots, and shoulder pads and can only comfortably fit a well endowed supermodel like those on The Man Show.

Optional

3) Neither of the above but your clothes disintegrate in fanservicey ways at even a well aimed sneeze. No gender discrimination and applies to even fat and/or ugly people.

Also wrt DQIV. I loved the game once I got to chapter 5 but that damn translation. On the one hand, Ragnar's Scots was actually really well done and accurate for the most part. On the other hand, they cut party chat, and that... damn... fake Russian bullshit.

And this is why I opted to skip the DS version (well that and I had just tracked down and played through the NES version; plus I assumed that the added bonus content would be of the same quality as other Squeenix rerelease additions and thus totally not worth it).
