Moral of the Story: don't stick your dick in Republican.
7007  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Harvest Moon: Rune Factory. on: November 25, 2008, 06:23:53 PM
I'm in the mood for some retail therapy and this can be gotten pretty cheap. So, by far the best reviews of any recent Harvest Moon game, but did you guys like it? I mean, HM is niche, so if you don't like HM in general and didn't like it, state so :P Anyway, Rune Factory 2 is coming out soon. What's known about it?

Get Parasite Eve last week, played it briefly (lol nanowrimo. i'm nearly at 41k at least). I sort of wish FFXII's battle system had been more like that. Essential have the same area of attack thing (shared with VS), except PE makes moving around in battle actually important. I really wish you could've dodged attacks in FFXII. Also, would've liked aimed shots like in VS, but if that's the trade off I have to have for not having Risk or block pushing puzzles OKEY DOKEY.

Also thinking about getting DQM: Joker since it's only 15 bucks or Viva Pinata for the DS because I like virtual pet games (and it seems a bit more interesting than the Petz games. Remember when those weren't Nintendogs clones? I'm sure you don't because that was like a goddamn decade ago and you all drop so goddamn much acid).

Also, I recently purchased IMSI Floorplan. Technically this isn't a game as you're supposed to make blueprints with it, but I've made a game out of it by making blueprints I find online. The hard part is getting the roofs right. I do not understand the roof tool very well, and you have to fiddle with layers a lot (traditionally used for multiple stories. For my purposes, I'm using them to make really crazy gabled things.

Oh jesus.

I'm dissapointed though. I was kind of expecting something like JFK Reloaded, only with knives and a turkey.

As a vegetarian I am not a fan of PETA because they give people like me a bad name. Then again I don't eat meat because I love animals or something. I just find the idea of sticking dead animal tissue into my mouth very, very unappetizing. Also after like eight years I'm not sure I can even safely consume meat anymore anyway.

I didn't like what I played of VI much, though I admit I never got far.

Let's hope they don't fuck the translation up and remove party chat this time, or I will cut them and feel no remorse.

The only sexual innuendo at CNN is Anderson Cooper giving the world bedroom eyes, because he KNOWS we love it.

And wouldn't you know it, after Abe Lincoln's shot Andrew Johnson, possibly the most racist president in US history, ascends to power and pretty much ruins everything.  That just might have been the impetus that delayed civil rights for the next 100 or so years.  Lincoln was a Republican.  Andrew Johnson was a Democrat.

Se också: Nixon, Southern Strategy.

So this Rahm guy's pretty interesting. Hope my assumption is correct: That he's not there to bully republicans, but to duct-tape Pelosi's mouth shut every couple hours.

If a game's title sounds like a cancer, should you REALLY have high expectations?
7014  Media / The Soundroom / Re: Song of the Moment: 15th Anniversary Edition on: November 08, 2008, 12:20:42 AM
a-Ha - Cozy Prisons (again). Irrational love for a-Ha and synth pop aside, this song really sums up the general and unidentifiable and vague and intangible sense of malaise that I constantly feel about nothing at all. I have no idea. I can't believe it's been three years since I started now. It feels like it's been three years since 2007, but only one since 2006.

I don't care what you say about Palin. Biden's totally a VPILF.

Apparently his chief of staff is a knife-wielding maniac that's missing a finger and served in the Isreali Army. Is this horrifying or awesome?

My russian culture teacher met/had lunch with Biden back in 1984 while in Moscow, apparently.

Also, this is one of the reasons why I think Obama will be a good president: http://xkcd.com/125/

every vote helps in eliminating our two party syster

No it doesn't. More than two major parties existing viably in our government isn't likely just given how the government is set up, UNLESS you somehow end up with a very left, very right, and strictly moderate party.

Simplified explanation why: The US electoral system is a zero-sum game. One person wins it all, one person wins nothing. In in a parliamentary system, on the other hand, any party that gets a minimum vote percentage wins seats.

Additionally, in the United States, the country is roughly half liberal, half conservative, with most people leaning moderate. Political parties all tend to be left leaning or right leaning. So, consider this scenario. You have three parties -- one right, and two left. If you divide the votes up roughly by how people align themselves, the right-leaning party will get fifty percent of the votes, and the left leaning parties will get fifty percent of the votes. And the right leaning party will win every time, as the left-leaning side will always be divided between the two parties, so you'll get a 50-30-20 breakdown by default, every time. And then the two left leaning parties merge and you have a two party system again.

Now, saying this, it LOOKS like Obama's going to win, so if he does, I'll say his methods are effective (and even if he loses, they've still been really effective. Just not as effective). If you consider the methods he used, they're the sort of methods that an independant candidate could probably use to get elected -- be competitive in every state, have a strong fundraising organization to STAY competitive, keep up a large ground-game, and most importantly *form an emotional connection with the people you're trying to organize to vote for you.*

Ron Paul couldn't really do the last one because of his pedosmile.

It's like Chris Matthews got fired from MSNBC and went into botany to become an orchid breeder and went insane after studying orchid phylogeny too much and figured out ways to crossbreed other things and thus mated a dildo with a femure and produce that.

Accidental gamer. Let's pick this appart. I have not stumbled into PC and online gaming recently. I just don't really *like* online gaming. Also, just because I can recognize that there *should* be better things I should be doing with my time doesn't mean that small-town Ohio is readily providing those things.

There's a difference between being fanboyish online and actually deeply giving a damn, though, which I guess is the difference here. Or at least maybe I'm just telling myself that to make myself feel better. Whatevs.
