Der Jermeister:

I'll just leave this here: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/3315889

Anyway, Grandia. I like how Grandia 1 is one of the few RPGs that actually took your characters position and the notion of enemies moving around to attack you... and did something with it. Like, visually, sure SoA had your dudes takin' swipes at the other dude, but it was just visual. Grandia 1 was actually BASED around that.

I guess ValkyrieProfile is sort of similar in the kind of, mm... timing issues that come up from it, and strategies, and what have you.

I always felt like a game mixing XGish comboes with Grandia's notion of charge, positioning, and movement would be really neat, especially if it incorporated some features where weak, normal, and strong attacks had different charges, so that you could, say, interrupt combos or something.

Pretty cool dungeon designs too, I thought. Never got far. Should try again.

Anyway, just wish it was less linear or something.

EU3.

Novgorod declared war on Yaroslavl, who I'm trying to vassalize (that's not gonna happen now). Took two of Novgorod's provinces, forced them to pay me 50 moneys, and cede a bunch of cores. Hurray!

Sweden declares war on Gottland again and drags me into it. Fuck! -1 stab hit, and raised revolt risk.

Norway peaces out. Then the Golden Horde declares war. Doublefuck!

Eventually I sell them Nizhnij-Novgorod and they go away, except I'm out of money, prestige is in the negative, I don't have an army, and any extra money I get is gonna have to go to getting The Horde friendly with me.

See it's funny because I took over half of Novgorod and now I'm going to have to do what Novgorod did historically!

he'll still freak out over seeing another guy's penis. 

What if he lost his real penis in a farm equipment accident when he was five and had to get it replaced with somebody else's penis because the other person wanted a sex change and because they would no longer need a penis donated their penis to the boy who lost his penis and thus did need a penis, because in that penis the penis that he penised would not penis penis penis.

Wait, so did he get arrested for smuggling the lizard, or having them in his pants?

noone's going to hate this more than than the traditional Apple fanboys.

Peter's more of an Amiga guy, really.

So no, I don't think fanboys are going to snatch this thing up.

I do. They snatch everything up. They make sleek and fashionable-looking devices. Functionality's always been secondary. Price has always been tertiary.

Look at the iPod. For most of its lifespan it was overpriced and not appreciably better than the competition. Maybe that's different now. Maybe not. I don't know. People that want iPod's don't generally want them because they want a device that can play music. They want something trendy.

Then again, I don't really see much purpose in all the new stuff people are adding to cell phones these days. I mean, do you NEED to be fucking updating your facebook page 24/7?

My iPod is a Sansa Clip. It cost me sixty dollars. It has a 2GB storage capacity, ogg vorbis support, a screen, a radio, and a recorder function. It also behaves like a standard USB thumb drive so I could use it for that if I wanted.

My phone is an Envy2. It was free.

My eReader is an actual book. It is made of paper. The cost is trees, because Mother Earth is a bitch and I'm going to rape her in ways that Tim Curry could only imagine, and then I am going to rape Tim Curry.

Do you hear it Tim Curry!? Do you hear the scritching and gnashing in your closet!? DO YOU HEAR IT GETTING CLOSER!? THE EYES ARE CLOSING. YOU CANNOT RUN.

One thing that IS nice about the Macs on campus is that they come with phonetic Russian keyboard input by default, meaning I don't have to download it from somewhere or just buckle down and learn how the actual Russian keyboard is laid out.

I don't like how the uh, menu bar is always attached to the very top of the screen, no matter what you're doing with the program window.

I'm not sure I'd ever want a tablet PC. I mean, call me a luddite, but... what makes a tablet so special? It seems like I'd have to be craning my neck at a weird angle to look at it and it doesn't have a keyboard. I mean, I get wanting a touchscreen with a mobile or a DS or something. It's sort of like a mouse in a sense, and you don't otherwise have that kind of control. But when you're getting into something that large, you're sort of into "Okay, this could have a keyboard and a mouse" territory.

At least they didn't go back in time and replace her with a doll they won at the carnival.

Heck, I could remember getting most of my homework done during the breaks between classes.

What's funny is that I don't really remember doing homework that much junior or senior year. Also my thoughts on effort sort of changed after I sort of trolled the Laws of Life essay contest senior year and won a hundred dollars for it.

I also don't exactly remember spending sixty hours on a single oil painting junior year even though I know I did, though, so maybe my memory's just wonky.

when it was discovered that someone had left a penis on his used PSP.

Christ it was just a picture they make it sound like he opened up the box and a severed dick jumped out and started singing Paul Anka songs or something.

Quote
and a traumatized young boy who should never have seen such a thing.

I think most ten year old boys have seen a penis.

Quote
"A picture of a penis appeared on the PSP screen, an image we simply can't show you on TV."

Shits weak, bro. Discovery Channel much? Back in the good old days when they had Beyond 2000 and animal mating videos and Arthur C Clarke's Mysterious World and shows about naked amazon tribes where people wear penis gourds?

I mean I live in rural Ohio so even WITHOUT the discovery channel my childhood would've been a katamari of animal dicks and farm equipment and penis gourds, but still.

Wait they have telecom companies that aren't Rogers!?

And does anyone else notice how much this looks like iDad?

And does anyone else find it pretty lulz when people are like THIS IS THE FIRST UGLY PRODUCT APPLE HAS MADE NO D:::. Did everyone forget the original iMacs?

Hahahah. No multitasking? You fucking kidding me? What, does it run DOS?

Widescreen movies look lousy on this thing thanks to its 4:3 screen, according to Blam, who checked out some of Star Trek on one. It's like owning a 4:3 TV all over again!

Still have a 4:3 TV, thank you.

No HDMI Out
Want to watch those nice HD videos you downloaded from iTunes on your TV? Too damned bad! If you were truly loyal, you'd just buy an AppleTV already.

Not really sure what HDMI even is.

Basically my opinion of macs is pretty low because the only ones I have an experience are those really current-gen iMacs with the flat monitor that's kind of coming out of that hemispheric base.

Monitor makes my eyes hurt really bad if I have to use them for any length of time. I have to set the monitor brightness as low as possible. Only other in-depth experience with the workstation macs was with some... video editing software that was a pain in the ass to use and crashed frequently.

Otherwise OSX is basically Ubuntu only prettier, and I generally think mac users mostly buy macs for the aesthetic of owning a mac or something.

and we have grades from 0 to 20

That immediately makes me think France, and a 10 out of 20 in that grading system is not equivalent to a 50% on an American grading scale. That's more like 70% or something.

What's the difference between mashed potatoes and your mother?

Batman never had sex with your mother.

EU3:

Sweden, being retarded, declared war on Gottland and Denmark and dragged me into it. Denmark and Gottland are nowhere fucking near me so whatever. However, war makes your people more prone to rebel, and Tver DoW'd Yaroslavl, the bitches. so I get a bunch of rebels popping like capsules all over the place. So I have to deal with them while defending Yaroslavl.

Anyway, long story short, I kill the rebels, conquer Tver, force them to give me a province and become my vassal again.

Think I might cancel the mission to annex Yaroslavl. I don't see myself doing it any time soon.
