Barring some kind of critical failure of incompetence or human dignity (goddamn scalpers), I fully intend to make off with that sweet FE3DS bundle, and then I'm going to be drained for the next couple of months.

Also wouldn't mind seeing Bravely Default or Type-0, but Squeenix needs to pull their collective head out of their collective ass. Soul Hackers would be another good game to cut my teeth into someday.

I'd always said there was just one voyager ep I really liked, where the ship and the entire crew cloned and in the end it was the cloned ship that survived while the original was destroyed.

...buuut then I heard someone say that I was wrong and it was the original that survived after all. So nothing redeeming about the show at all.

If there was anything Voyager was consistent on, it was inconsistency. Hell, just look at any time the Prime Directive got brought up. Half the time Janeway would be "We must respect the Prime Directive at all costs. Even if it means losing a crew member/a chance to go home in the process." and the other half would be "To hell with the Prime Directive! Just blow it up and be done with it.".

Eh. It'll hurt my wallet but with the current retro gaming bubble and a potentially dry year this year (I'm suspecting that all those new console rumors will bear something later this year which means launch titles and the occasional underrated gem) I think I will take the bite and hope for the best.

Honestly the first couple of seasons are unwatchable given how much they constantly bring up their desire to go home. ("WE'RE STUCK IN THE DELTA QUADRANT FOR THE NEXT X NUMBER OF YEARS! SOMEBODY HALP US! WE ALL JUST WANNA GET HOME IN TIME FOR FUTURE FRIENDS BEFORE JOKES/REFERENCES BECOME DATED AND THEY STOP AIRING THE RERUNS!!!".)

Lightsabers don't kill people.  People kill people.

You can take my Lightsaber when you pry it from my cold robotic hand.

I liked the Doctor + Kes duo. They were awesome together.

Considering she was supposed to die at the age of 9 I think she's doing ok



Then she left, got better, then came back a few seasons later for some kind of ill conceived revenge plot.

Goddamn did Voyager suck. The Doctor was honestly the best part of the show.

if you have playstation plus megaman 9 and 10 are now free.

Are the DLC free too?

Not like it matters to me since I already have them on my Wii.

We need to put less money into these weapons of mass destruction and more into our schools.

 By which of course, I mean Jedi Academies.

But what happens when one of the Padawans or a mentally deficient Jedi turns to the dark side and goes on an academy killing spree? Think man, we need to post Stormtroopers at every academy and arm all of our teachers with Lightsabers.

...all of a sudden, I wish I'd paid attention to politics. :P

One of the things Newt Gingrich (one of the people that was in the running during Republican primaries) was criticized/made fun of for was his proposal for the US to establish a moon base. While it does sound outlandish, it's actually something that's very possible technologically, just probably not very economy-friendly. =P

To be fair, the 2012 Republican Primaries were a comedy goldmine in terms of the nominees. It's why the Republicans had to settle for Mr. Milquetoast Romney (although he did shit on a few national economies with his old company Bain Capital). I only wish that Donald Trump had gotten in on some of that action instead of just blackmailing the president from the sidelines (among other things).

My litmus test for SRPGs is the heal test. The principle behind it is in how your party and its members are perceived as. In your CRPGs your party is strictly considered to be one unit whereas in your SRPGs your team consists more of individual units under your control that are designed to function like a team rather than a single team like unit. Therefore, with the heal test, if I were to cast a heal spell in a CRPG my choices in targets would consist of 'individual' or 'all' with the only consideration being whether or not I want the heal's full power on one unit or the heal's lesser power on all of them, but with an SRPG your choice in heal targets is almost always a matter of who's in range and rarely if ever is there an 'all' choice since you also have other options when dealing with an injured unit rather than in a CRPG which consists of either getting the heal off or hoping to god the enemy doesn't attack that person this turn.

It's the reason why I consider games like Lufia 3 to be a CRPG despite the fact that positioning is everything in that game.

Besides, Shawcross says, the Obama administration "does not support blowing up planets."

Damn, I knew I should've voted for Palpatine...

Or Newt Gingridge (or however Mr. "I wanna build a moon base!"'s name is spelled).

Oh hey! Its that thing that is the reason why I still stick with Firefox. All I need to do is go to tools/options then uncheck the check box next to Enable Javascript. 3-5 seconds and I'm done.

But unfortunately, Youtube is functionally useless without Java or Javascript on, among other things.

long series scare me...

That's the reason I'm never ever starting Ramna.
I missed it back then and it's just too much now.

Man, if you think Ramna is long. God help you if you ever decide to get into a long running shonen series.
