Did some of the blitzball tutorials in FFX (I never did them before which is probably why I didn't get how blitzball worked), messed around doing nothing in Chrono Cross except picking up Steena, bought TF2, was rather confused by TF2, was rather MORE confused at why TF2 was running so poorly on my PC even on the lowest settings. Tf2 does not have high system requirements.

Hi welcome to Dildofan (where it's like Dildogamer except it's not run by some creepy manchild).

Well to me, someone already said this but not having direct control over the others made me feel more like the other characters were individuals, and the main character felt more like... you.

That was probably me.

Yeah, P3's AI was a bit dumb at times, but here's the thing. Artificial stupidity can be endearing. And the fact that you don't control them and that they chatter in battle sort of addresses the "Character loses all personality as soon as they join your party" syndrome you see in a lot of JRPGs.

And besides. From a story perspective why WOULD Junpei act particularly smart in battle?

Also P3 was fairly easy as far as SMT games go. If you were ever at a point where your party members would get you killed by either doing or failing to do something, you probably weren't approaching whatever battle you were at right. The MC has like, a dozen persona's available to him. That's plenty of room to cover your bases.

Now Gambits were an awful control system.  Way too much hassle to deal with and change up

Also the whole buying/finding options. It's a AI programming system. They tried to make it into more of a strictly gameplay feature than it had any right to be. It's like disallowing the player from accessing their players stats until they buy the appropriate menu command in a shop.

That and FFXII's boss battles don't have anywhere near the level of creativity FFX's had and I think the gambit system and the battle system are partly to blame. I mean, just for comparison, since I just did them, you can't really do that claw shrimp battle or Yunalesca in ATB because it'd just be unmanagable for one thing and especially with FFXII's slightly more chaotic flavor of ATB, but you couldn't do them at ALL with gambits since you're micromanaging the hell out of your turns and you just can't automate that.

Gears of War is kinda boring.

You know epic used to make really colorful games. I mean even their FPSes. Unreal had all kinds of colors. Then GoW is like BROWN IS REALISM and they did the same thing with UT3 too and it looks even worse on my system because you pretty much have to turn textures off to run (and then I'm thinking they just entirely forgot how to program engines, because UT2K4 looked fine and ran fast on rather poor hardware).

Hey.

Remember.

Next time you drink a Pepsi, just think what the bottle used to be made of!

SK2 show how cruel a war can be.

What's even better at showing you how cruel war can be is like, getting a phone call at 11 PM from one of your old highschool buddies, informing you that another one of your old highschool buddies got killed in a roadside bomb attack in Iraq.

Played FFIX a bit. Conde Pettie (SP?) and the surrounding areas is pretty as hell. Givin' me pleasent memories of Riven.

Also watched the scene following the Dario stuff. CC makes me happy. I'm not sure if's actually JOY or not but it's close.

Also I think I'm going to start referring to the latest Unreal Engine as ZZT 4.0 just to see if anyone gets it.

Okay. FFX.

Beat the Clawshrimp Ring-Around-The-Rosie boss. It was sort of close but I major overkilled him with a Grand Summon.

Then, I fought Yunalesca.

For an hour.

After FINALLY winning, the game promptly freezes up.





Nah just kidding but holy goddamn that was not easy. That was also the most fun I ever had with an FF boss fight. The stuff in the last two phases with zombie where you're pretty much forced to let your characters get it and die from regen to block yourself against that Megadeath thing is nuts. And I like how it wasn't a trick boss. I mean I looked at a boss faq and got nothing. It's just, like... it felt like a Megaten boss.

Code:
Also the stuff with zombie was amusingly thematic. Like Lulu says, if you want everything, you'll end up with nothing. And you can't keep all of your dudes alive so it's more a matter of timing who dies when. Which also sort of works with the inevitable death theme around that point too

Additionally, I'm now out of money because I had enough to do around 20k with Rikku's Spare change during phase to. And I used it all.

I live in NW Ohio and I've never fucked any cattle.

Hey, hey. Do you live in one of those areas where you could like have kids and then they never go on a vacation and then one day their teacher is all "Okay can you tell me what a hill is?" and they all look up totally dumbfounded because they don't have a clue what that is?

Because I sure as hell do.

Now why would you throw out a perfectly good dildo to begin with. Some of those are expensive too, especially if you're like, getting a live-cast horse dildo, or a live-cast dildo of like Batman or something. ESPECIALLY if you're getting it custom made. I mean we're talking upwards 100 USD to start, and then you have to factor in material costs if you want it to have a non-standard texture or if it's particularly huge--and you know it is because I mean why bother buying small dildos--, or additional fees depending on the color, or whether you want one of those fake semen pumps in it so you can like pretend that it's ejaculating some sort of silicon goo that probably causes cancer or something I don't know (although yo uknow good eats was doing an episode on hollendaise sauce tonight. I guess that'd work too, although it seems like it's kind of a bitch to make because you need a double boiler), and if you want it to be a vibrator you also have to pay for a motor.

And that's the dildo alone. They get HEAVY with all this crap. So you've got shipping fees too, and a non-standard box, and probably bribe money to keep the USPS guys from taking it out and using it.

Then you've also got your dildo maintenance supplies. Cleaning solution, conditioners to keep the plastic in good shape, microfiber dildo cloths, a solid carrying case. Extra batteries. A waterpick, maybe. Dildo wax to keep it looking as shiny as possible. Ingredients for the hollendaise sauce and I mean jesus christ have you seen what eggs cost today? Motherfucking chickens are unionizing or some shit. But yeah you have to protect your investment, you know?

I mean seriously get that shit repaired don't throw it out.

what happens to all the animals that depend on thrown-away dildos as their only action?

They can move to Ohio where our entire economy is based on raping cattle and doing meth and then when you're on meth making up these outrageous tales about dildos on the internet while also talking about doing meth and making up outrageous tales about dildo meth cattle internet dildo cattle meth internet ohio happenstance.

I dunno I just like saying that :[

Started playing CTF in QL 'cause one of my friends was. Anyway I managed to get the red flag back and allow my team to score. It was pretty hilarious because I died JUST as I touched the flag. It was sort of like the ending of Friday Night Lights, only I was moderately awesome and didn't lose. Shit was so cash.

(Also I maintain that I like the additions from Team Arena, because the nail gun is like flak from UT and it sort of adds classes in, a little).

By the way how do you increase aeons' stats in FFX?

but I had Yuna to the point where she was stronger than Tidus AND Auron.

Good god you are like the king and queen of autism.

Anyway just got the Brawler achievement in QL, because I got five gauntlet frags in one match. I did okay in that match. I didn't place really high but I wasn't at the bottom, and I got more frags than deaths.

I like FFX's puzzle bosses but good god I suck at them. I'm at one in the uh... last...ish... temple area thingy. Where you have to move around it.

Got various achievements in Quake Live, and I also managed to get more frags than deaths a few times! Woot! Yet to win a free for all though.
