It's not unintelligible. It's just the only game I've ever played that had comma ellipses.

(Admittedly I didn't really like anything else about the game once I got further into it and realized how absolutely broken it was, so maybe it gets better later on but uh, I think I got up to the point when you get Spar. That's pretty far in the game).

I think I'll give Wizardry 8 another shot on easy mode. I mean I don't like playing stuff on anything but normal, generally, but any regular combat is lasting like 20 minutes and completely decimating my party. Maybe I broke the game with some mod. I don't know. Also the enemies level with you.

I play Wizardry 8 for like, an hour and half, and successfully finished two encounters.

This game is shit. Why did I ever like it? Honestly. It's unplayably slow, individual battles can last well over ten minutes, status attacks work but don't seem to actually matter much, and more of your attacks miss than hit (whereas most of the enemy attacks hit).

Seriously. What the hell did I ever see in this game?

Never mind, I was wondering if you got to the point where this certain kid over narrates stuff and if you noticed it. :P

What... town was this in? I really don't remember it at all.

Hoshino I'm not sure what you're asking me but uh...

Seriously, what ARE you asking me :( What's wrong with the phrase "cold hard floor?"

I did think DQVII's translation was THAT bad. I mean, at the least it's generally pretty grammatical and quite understandable. It's just really... stilted. And it does have it's occasional good moments. I mean like, we're not talking FFT or BoF2 levels of "Wait what are these people even saying?" levels, here.

Anyway I tried to play Morrowind, Elona, and ADOM today, but I'm just not feeling it. It's like the gaming part of me is just gone.

I need to rant. That sort of fits here, right?

Okay see, I'm taking this online Russian course. First week of school, I talk to the head of the Russian department on campus, and he tells me to make an account. I do that. Problem is, I use the same password as my main university password. And it has a < in it because it requires symbols.

Apparently, I was NOT supposed to do that for the online Russian course. Except I didn't know that because the online form doesn't TELL me not to use symbols, and doesn't reject my password when I try to register.

I find out not to use special symbols when the guy from Moscow e-mails me a week later telling me to register for the course.

And there's apparently no way to change the password.

1. Who designs a login system where you can't change your password?
2. Who designs a loing system where you can freely register with improper passwords?

So now I have to re-register and I THINK (I mean, hopefully, because I just did) repurchase the course (and I'm not sure who's paying for it anyway).

Oformit' zakaz should mean "place order."

Basically it says that you must cover your penis with wasp stings

If we use a really liberal definition of "enlarge" to include "swollen"...

Anyway the problem with nonsurgical dick growth methods is that the spongey inner dick tissue doesn't really expand the same way skin does. If the mandick was nothing but flesh, sure, you could manually pull on it with constant pressure for a few years and it'd grow substantially, but it's not. It's made of mechanisms and doodads.

That is sort of odd, admittedly, especially since it looks like you'd, uh, need to recompile if you just altered a resource. You CAN dynamically load 2D images with the Texture2D.FromFile method but that's it.

that would sort of render external editors... impossible, though, as well as any sort of propriety file format.

anyway it's not something I really plan on developing in. It's mostly just to learn with since the concepts are applicable in other systems.

---edit---

Then again, C# is a lot nicer than C++ (and I like freebasic too although I don't think it has garbage collection). Anyway.

The content pipeline makes sense for XBLA games which DO need to have all their resources packaged and aren't editable post release. You can also get VB or winForms or whatever to use the content pipeline so writing level editors is possible. Just... only if you have XNA Game Studio installed.

Yeah, this definitely looks worse than the original.

SMT:N's story is a lot more apparent if you actually talk to the NPCs (which a lot of people don't acknowledge as NPCs because they're either monsters or floating spheres). I remember that from my gamefaqs days.

Sigh. Highschool. Memories~~

I need to cure that. ALCOHOL TIME.

OMF 2097 invented the fighter RPG and did it better than all subsequent ones >:C

Guy makes some good points, actually, although the gaming industry is probably more resilient than he's making it out to be and if it DOES fall apart someone else will swoop in and start doing stuff. The indie game movement is large. And in charge. Brotha.

I really do like the mindset of "games are toys and there's nothing wrong with that." Because, well, they are in a sense, you know? And what IS wrong with that? What IS wrong with having fun? (Then again maybe I'm just trying to justify the stack of plush toys I have sitting in my dorm. Next to the thirty goddamn plants).

(Wait did I say that out loud? fuck).

(Also seriously part of the reason I like unlimited saga so much is because it's very toy like, down to physically emulating a game board. part of the reason I like metal saga so much is similar. the little tanks you collect literally look like toys. I like games that let me play with them instead of just playing them*).

* I like this kind of game too, though.

Oh well, next up is Falrod which also tends to be irritating and then it's nothing but smooth sailing till Dharma (which also sucks but for different reasons).

Yyyyyyyyyeah at least the payoff for that's the class system.

I should get back to DQ7*. I'd JUST gotten melvin.

anyway I seriously haven't played videogames in like a week or two. Nothing but reading up on XNA, doing Russian homework, and, uh... watching Fresh Prince and Phineas & Ferb on disney. This is my life now. :(
