Meh.. i was going to create a new topic but I thought I'd just bump this one since it's related.  Hopefully someone checks it.

I'm also looking for a new monitor.  I'm just kind of curious if there's any difference between 20" and 20.1" that I should be aware of.  

The .1 just kind of struck me as odd so I figured I should ask somebody.

Tales of Abyss' voice acting pisses me off.  It's the worst voice acting I've heard in a newer release.

High standards? What do you think is better?


TotA, imo, has the worst voice acting I've heard in a long time.

Better?  Every game I've played recently.

-Digital Devil saga 1 and 2
-Final Fantasy 12
-Suikoden 5
-Warcraft 3 (pretty old game but voice acting is much better than Abyss)

The only other game i've played recently that has voice acting is Disgaea 2, but I played it on japanese audio.

I'm getting this too, but I may wait a little while before buying it.  Not sure.  Definitely buying it online at best buy or something.  I'd rather pay shipping charges than go into the store and buy it.

I'll probably get diamond.  We should post some friend codes when we get it.

Really worth your time to get Pendant of the Violet Eye now.

Next patch it's being buffed to having 34 int and 6 more mana 5 per spell cast.

If you're a jewel crafter it wouldn't hurt to pick up the revered sha'tar mana regen trinket as well.

Who did he punch?

Go Sens and Flames..I want to see Crosby out of the playoffs.


What's to hate about Crosby?  He's a good kid.

Shite.

Ottawa lost Game 2.... 4-3


Pens played shitty.  I'm quite surprised.

I doubt Sens will lose overall.

It's not necessarily you.

Your group might not DPS the adds down fast enough so you burn mana healing people you necessarily shouldn't have to.

Maybe your positioning could be better or it could be your tank (probably unlikely).

Also shadow priests do make an insane difference.  We always try to have one in our raids.  Shamans are obviously nice too.

I really like the priest tier 6 set.

Paladin set isn't too bad in the video.  Screenshot looks awful though.

Because bitching about the Illumination change would just be silly.


You mean other than the fact almost all the quality paladin healing gear in endgame BC revolves around spell crit, hence making common blues with +healing/mp5 better than epics with spell crit?  Yeah, that's fantastic.  I guess I'm just being silly then.  


No.  Bitching about being nerfed when you are clearly the best (overpowered perhaps?) healing class in game and the preferred healing class in arenas.

You still are going to have your mana last longer than any other healing class.

And if you're really that pissed about your regen, go kill Aran and get his trinket.  It finally dropped last night for us and our paladin keeps saying how awesome it is for him and how with it he ended up with 80% mana after Netherspite without any pots yada yada yada...

mmm.  I love hockey OT.  Though 4 is a bit much if it isn't a crucial game.

Sucks that the canucks won.  oh well.
2547  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Guitar Hero or God of War II? on: April 12, 2007, 12:17:41 PM
Guitar Hero is kind of cool.  My roommate borrows it from his friend and loves it.

I personally would get much more fun and use out of God of War 2.  I love music, but I still find playing that game for longer than 20 minutes boring.  To me, it's one of those games that when you first get it, you play it a fair amount during the weekend and after that you just play it a little bit here and there.

Nice Ring.

Our guild just downed High King Maulgar last night.  This was our first full time of attempts so it was pretty badass.  We tried last week with 21 people but we just didn't have enough healers.  Last night we had 24 people on and picked up a trial applicant healer to help out.  Tier4 war/priest/druid shoulders dropped and a fury war wrist dropped -- which our lone pally said, "Did someone say Ret pally?"

Nice to see warrior tier 4 finally drop.  We've had the shaman/rogue/paladin helm drop the last 3 times so we have no warriors with tier4 helms.  Kinda sweet.  

I hope they buff the tier 4 priest shoulders, because I want them someday =p

2550  The Rest / General Discussions / Tips on how to fight burnout? on: April 10, 2007, 10:40:00 AM
Thanks for all the replies.  

Quote from: "jphussey"
The only advice I can give you my friend, is, whatever you do, do not take any time off. When working on my PhD and feeling burnt out, I took time off. Suffice it to say, Ive not gone back.

Just think of it this way: if you dont finish, what are you going to do with your life?


I agree.  Taking time off would be counter productive.  I don't plan on quitting since It's just one more semester after this one and it's looking to be like a fairly easy next and hopefully final semester.  

Quote from: "Morwan"
When I burn out, it's because work has become so overwhelming that I've completely lost my perspective. You need to take a step back and re-evaluate the situation you're in. What's your goal in life? What's your reason for going to school, and why is it better than the alternatives? What's going to happen if you don't finish? Just make sure to look at the big picture, keeping things like buying a house, a car, etc.. in mind.

Once you've answered those questions, everything should be clear.

That said, doing this made me decide not to pursue graduate school, so your mileage may vary.


Work has indeed been quite overwhelming to me.  It feels like once I get caught up in one subject, I am behind in another one.  I attribute this to the burnout as well.  I agree with Aelph in that a goal or motivation would help things, but right now I don't have any goals that wouldn't require a hell of a lot more studying to pass a certification exam after I graduate.  I know bad things would happen if I didn't graduate and I wouldn't want to waste all the time and money I've invested this far so it's definitely onward in some way.

I definitely don't think I could do graduate school anymore either.  Initially I thought that it was a great idea.  I could make more money, have a better job, etc.  When I think of it now, it just doesn't seem worth it, unless somehow I don't go for a couple years and my employer pays for me to go.

Quote from: "kyuusei"
Man, when studying, I not only burn out, I crash and burn. I've had nothing but As and Bs for like five semesters (only one B-) and now I'm getting like..a Csomething in physics. Then again I went five-six straight semesters, most of them full. I so need a semester off, especially when I need physics grades a whole lot better than that.


I'm hoping so hard for a C in the two classes I'm doing horrible in.  B is a possibility but I'd sure have to do really well on the next test and hope there is some sort of end of the semester curve for attendance or something.  I'm just glad I'm not taking any summer courses (can't really do that anyway unless I was taking them at a bigger school).


Quote from: "Ryos"
Keep going man, I spent like the last year and a half of my graduate degree burned out. As long as you balance your goofing off time and your scholastic necessities that should help you pursue your final months.


Definitely.  I'm trying to limit video games to weekends.  We'll see how that helps.  Might try to exercise more, but I've been feeling particularly lazy about doing that lately.

Quote from: "Aelph"
I've found that working in very small increments can help: do an hour or two of work, then go do something else for awhile. I think most of the 'burn out' for me comes from feeling like I've got a constant pressure on me, so I'm trying to convince myself that taking a bit of time off -- just a bit, mind you -- isn't going to make or break my average.


That's what I used to do and it worked well.  I still try to do that but often the "little break" turns into a bigger break than it should be.  Maybe I should plan something for the summer to look forward to as well.  My sister really wants me to get an internship down in NC where she lives.  She's been sending me internship postings to my email from down there.  Maybe I should take the hint.  It'd be nice to live in a warm climate for the summer.  Probably too late to get an internship though >.>
