646  Media / Brush and Quill / 100 Must-Read Books: The Essential Man's Library on: July 26, 2008, 04:18:24 AM
Most books on the list were things read in high school. Which is I imagine the worst time to read them. At least early highschool, 16-18 you get a bit more receptive. But you're 14 and have to read The Great Gatsby it just isn't going to do anything for you. Now I don't remember a thing about the book. And I know that's because it's either too much for a 14 year old or that it's simply not something that a 14 year old really cares to read.

 Now I do remember Brave New World. Hated, but respected it. Hated it because it was way to focused on it's own theme, a theme you already knew before you read the book if you've ever watched any science fiction. The result of a book about a utopian future where man didn't have any heart, yet the book itself didn't have any heart as it was too focused on itself. Yet it needs respected because the sci fi you've seen that used the theme got the theme from this book in the first place. I'm sure if it were 1930(Give or take 15 years, whenever it was made) and I read it then it would have been a hell of a lot better.

You can think of Bob Ross' fro as a tuft of pubic hair if it helps you.

I knew Dragon Ball movie would be a slippery slope. I just didn't know how slippery.


 I still want to see Jet Li transform into SSJ Leonardo Dicaprio.
650  The Rest / General Discussions / Obscure Talents on: July 22, 2008, 03:06:45 PM
My useless talent is looking like a shaolin monk, without any of the actual ability. Give me a staff(*Cough*Floor brush handle, long balanced stick etc :P) and I can rapidly spin it in one hand. Either by throwing it over my wrist rapidly or twirling it in my fingers like a very big pen(It's actually easier than twirling a pen, momentum carries it).

 I've also tried to master the art of throwing cards. Never really did though. I can crack one against a wall, but I have no accuracy and I may have to try a few times to get it to work.
651  Media / Single-Player RPGs / What dead series(or mostly dead) do you miss the most? on: July 22, 2008, 03:37:14 AM
I'd say Lunar and Skies of Arcadia(Which I guess isn't a series. It could be though) . They just had a certain 'feel' to them that goes beyond gameplay. There's lots of fun rpgs. Fewer are ones with great stories, but even beyond that. Not a lot of games outright charm the player. Hell in the case of SoA it didn't have great gameplay OR story. Yet it had that something to make you love it. Other examples of this, not dying series, but just games that have that feel I'm talking about are dragon quest 8 and dark cloud 2.(At least I hope dark cloud isn't dead. I guess it's been awhile, if so put it on the list)

 For Suikoden I don't think is dead. Just stuck in 'we don't know which system to make rpgs for' limbo. Probably a lot of less mainstream rpgs sitting there.

Edit-To put it into words better, that feel is The Spirit of Adventure. And yes I'm aware that I just stole someones custom title to explain myself :P
652  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Bought gold? If you haven't spent 40k you are a noob! on: July 18, 2008, 11:50:42 PM
Oh that'll be hilarious. Buy $40k in gold and get banned.
653  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Bought gold? If you haven't spent 40k you are a noob! on: July 18, 2008, 10:37:05 PM
What are you even going to DO with that? I've got 15k gold and nothing to buy. You level your professions and get your mounts and then golds only use is upkeep. Repairs, consumables, stuff like that. The good gears all from either pvping or raiding. And while I guess you can pay people to carry you through a raid I don't think even they charge that much.

I'm going to go up to a bunch of black guys and call them GENIAL MEMBER OF ETHNIC GROUPS THAT ORIGINATE IN THE AFRICAN CONTINENT OR CLOSEBY THEREINs. Then when I get my ass beat I'm going to sue websters dictionary.

Come the fuck on, isn't this at least a LITTLE surprising?


Maybe it was just founded on anti ps3 bias and me never wanting to get one, but I've just been waiting for se to announce as much for awhile now.

Yep. I don't see how people are surprised by this.

Parser data disagrees with you, sir. Are you seriously suggesting that rare/valuable equipment has no effect on a character's performance and only exists for ego masturbation?


I'm saying the damage is so minor it doesn't even matter. Some stats DO matter. But a lot of it is just for show. It basically boils down to enough accuracy to hit, haste and whether you have a bard or not. And things that go beyond stats like dune boots and multi attack swords(But these aren't something you can buy).

Quote
The rest of your post aside, because I do agree with it, Warrior sub on thief hardly "increases" your damage on Thief. If you're using haste gear, which 90% for thief is rare/ex making price irrelevant, the damage you get from Triple Attack merits proccing on two hands at once vastly outweighs anything /WAR would ever give you.


I found it to mean a lot on anything that actually had defense. Damage just plummets as a thief if you don't have berserk to break through. Squishies it added less. And squishies you can pull hate on so /nin regardless.

The real world economy has gone to shit and people are whining over money in a game. Fantastic. Real great priorities!

It's great to see people caring about what really matters in this world, gil buying!


That's dodging the subject with a unrelated issue :P

Still, though I never have, I don't blame anyone for doing it. The elitists demand it, obsessed when stats when most stats hardly even do anything. Like how a thief 'sucks' without leaping boots. Do you know what leaping boots do? Leaping boots don't do a damn thing. You won't see your damage go up with them. You'll just see a bigger number in the stat menu.  But you need them. Because the elitists demand them. And everyone's a elitist, because that attitude spreads(And I wasn't immune to it either).

Meanwhile if you sub warrior instead of ninja and actually increase your damage, even when you don't need shadows, people will give you crap for using the 'wrong' sub.

Quote from: "dalucifer0"
Well, for a girl to be 5'11" and weigh 115 lbs, she either has no tits or no ass, or both.


They can buy the tits.

Outside that though it's true. I knew a skinny 6 foot girl who said she wanted to lose weight even though she was, I wouldn't say malnourished, but bony. I was like, you're six feet tall, don't gauge yourself by what someone 5'5 should weight. And I did think 'Maybe you'd have a chest if you ate more'. Tell a girl that and someone's going to cry though. Either her or you when she's done with you :P
