I played Ys VI and thought it was pretty terrible.

On a serious note, the primary reason for passing this into law seems to be to block genetic engineering from removing the capability to reproduce or placing terminator genes into plants. Given the destructive potential of those getting out into the wild, uhh, this is a very good thing.

Wait.

Terminator genes that make plants unable to reproduce, uh... couldn't pose a threat if they get out into nature as they couldn't pose a threat as they can't pass their genetic material on. Likewise, there's not really any way they could get into nature anyway.

ADOM is one of the few roguelikes I wish had permanent saves. Not permanent saves at any given time but like... something like Ragnarok. One save every couple hundred turns, and NEVER in a dungeon. And this would be fairly balanced because of how chaos mutations work, so you couldn't just chillax in town till you could save again.

Um... if I was on a desert island, probably an MMO so that if I could find some wifi access I could contact someone for help.

Several countries have laws that state you can't just kill plants for no reason, actually. Like, in a TV show. No flushing african violets down toilets (not that I'm, personally, that concerned about african violets, as I'm not a 70-year old woman).

Yeah this sounds like a port or remake of the gamegear game or something honestly :P

These games don't piss me off like Fire Emblem does. Also, delicious, delicious Sega flavored chiptunes and palettes.

My take on this:

If you put a http://homebuilding.thefuntimesguide.com/images/blogs/angry-tree-face.jpg on my Dawn Redwood I'm going to fucking beat your ass with a hammer.

Are we clear?

None of you will be nailing a clay face to my redwood?

Good. Didn't think so.

(It dropped its leave in like, September, so it looks sad enough as is. Hopefully they leaf out fairly quickly come spring. Them crazy deciduous conifers.)

Morrowind's banner duplication glitch has, on more than one occaision, led to me feeling a vague sense of dread when I see a banner attached to a pole in real life. I wish to god I was making that up.

There are some games I just found really moving. The chrono series, earthbound, ffl2* come to mind. Some of Maxis' old games.

One of the main ways I learned to read Japanese was by replaying RPG's I had already beaten using the Japanese version. I'd make vocab lists on my computer as I played and just naturally created all these mnemonics associating difficult words with games.

I want to try that with Russian :(

* In the hierarchy of Square games, for me, this one is near the top. I know I'm alone on this but FFL2 just blew my mind for some reason.

There's nothing outright BAD about ACF. Just insanely derpy and easy to fix things. There's this overbearing feeling of half-assedness to it, I guess.

Since Wild Arms XF came up, I feel like clarifying my opinions on ACF.

Things I remember about Wild Arms ACF:

* Magic system had half of the spells cut out. Apparently this removed some redundant spells but from what I can tell they weren't THAT redundant.

* Broken text tables in some towns meant NPCs spouted gibberish.

* One of the things I thought seemed cool -- you can buy/find abilities to augment your charactesr with. Except this replaced equipable armor (which isn't too bad). Except like with WA2, most of the personal skills are either really boring or not useful for much.

* Bonus characters and a related combo system which was completely useless as you only got to use these extra characters in the last dungeon what the fuck?.

* Removed like most of the Force Powers.

* Took out about half of Jack's Fast Draws.

* Removal of various other things that made the first Wild ARMs field different from other games.

I'm sure Sword of Mana's a lot better if you never played the original, but I mean, it felt like the WA remake to me: They added some really cool stuff but broke a lot in the process (ACF turned out worse IMHO though. Sword did some stupid stuff but I can honestly say content was not removed).

Wouldn't it be awesome if Derek Smart went into space (and stayed there)?
