I want one....:P

No, seriously. I've heard something like 499 US for the 4GB and 599 US for 8 GB. Not sure how true that is, but if I had the money to spare...

That's what I read too.  Plenty of room unless you want to put Prince's discography on there or something.

The only drawback is the cingular-only plan. While I understand that cingular is a pretty huge network, I kind of wish more companies had access to it. It seems silly to limit the carrier -- though really, this could all change by the time the iPhone ships.

Look at the Razr or however they spell it.  It was originally cingular only and now it's verizon too.  I'm sure the iPhone will switch too.  I'm kinda happy that Cingular has it instead of Verizon.  Verizon tends to lock down features more so than Cingular and I don't want to use Verizon's services.

And I want one as well.  By the time my contract is up the price should have come down by then.  By then everyone will have one though =P

-Swedish or Finnish (I think Scandinavian languages are interesting)

Yeah, I wanna take both sometime. Shame the two have nothing in common beyond the odd loan word here and there.

Yeah I've heard that.  I knew some people from Finland and they told me that learning Swedish was a lot harder than learning English.

If you play a druid I don't think you'll be disappointed with the way things are now.

They're really powerful, there always has been a shortage of them, and both feral and restoration druids are wanted for end game in BC.

I always wanted to be a linguistics major.  I find languages fascinating.

I took 2 years of Spanish in highschool
3 years or so of Japanese in college.

I'd love to take:

Oh well, at least I can still do, what I supposed will be considered from here on out, "the old raids". I would still like to go through them all and get all three of the current tier sets. Not like they'll be worth a damn in BC, but who cares. At least I'll be able to say I did it.

Good luck finding people to do it.  It'd be such a time waste and a headache with the random loot table of MC and BWL.  Time spent doing it would be better served learning the Karazhan and 25 man encounters.  I know it's just for the hell of it and for the accomplishment, but it might be a bigger headache than what it's worth.

Also on average:
60-62/63 BC dungeon blues > Tier 1
63/64-67 BC dungeon blues > Tier 2
67-70 BC dungeon blues/epics > Tier 3

Also there's to mention the mysterious "Patchwerk hitting for 14k" in BC.  Not sure if that number is a hateful strike or not.  This could and most likely is a bug due to the ? level of the monster.  In past it's always been said that they are +3 levels of you / 63.  You'd assume they would stay that way or do they scale?  So far it's seems like they scale. That's what is showing so far.  I haven't looked that up in a long time but I'm assuming it's a bug or something intended to keep people testing the BC stuff and not old stuff.  Who knows if it'll be fixed/changed.

edit: looks like the scaling only applies to some of the bosses

edit2: apparently they changed the mitigation for BC and now it's changed to: armor/(armor + 782 + level*85 + 382.5*(level-60)) = mitigation.  

Heard Patchwerk is/was hitting for 1k-2k higher now on live realms.  However I just saw a blue post saying there was a hotfix for it.  I don't know if it's for the live realms to take him back down to his old hits before the change in mitigation (back to 1k-2k less per hit).  As far as I know, this hasn't changed his damage output in BC yet; just live.  Not sure though.

Oh.. and I found this funny.  Fucking people need to learn to be more flexible.

"In other news... one of our priests quit the game tonight because he was so distraught over the changes. He had grown so hopelessly dependent on the mods that he simply could not function without clickheal, EM, auto-interrupt, and decursive. Personally, I'm delighted these changes went live, but I thought that people would find this interesting for academic purposes."

Final Fantasy VII bored me to tears because the dialogue didn't do a thing for me.  People keep telling me that I should get past disc one to get to "all the good stuff", but I really doubt the writing magically transforms in quality on the remaining discs, so it sits alongside Final Fantasy Tactics and Star Ocean 2, collecting dust.  Perhaps I'll give the games another chance someday, but in the meantime, there are plenty of other games to play that don't suffer from poor writing.

When I first read your post I thought you were just being picky (although the complaint is justified).

Then I took a moment and actually tried to remember Star Ocean 2's writing and I fully agree with you.  It was just too... lame for a better word.  There were a million "Claude/Rena......" lines and just general weirdness for a lack of a better word.

That was hilarious.  Thanks.

On that note, if I do play BC and end up raiding, I'll be looking forward to it.  Much more individual effort and things like retards should become more apparent.

Yeah, I just stopped getting EGM.  I don't see a point in getting it anymore.  I generally don't agree with the RPG reviews (they aren't really RPG fans so their opinion isn't that credible to me) and finding out information on games is 100x quicker on the internet.

Growing up I really liked Nintendo Power. I remember getting psyched up for some of the games they covered.  Ah... childhood nostalgia.
2590  The Rest / The Bazaar / Wanted: Tales of Destiny PS2 on: January 05, 2007, 11:33:12 PM
Wow.  I had no clue they made a remake of the psx game for ps2.

You are looking for the first game, not the sequel, correct?

I know you wanted it ASAP, but playasia had a few different ones in stock.  I don't know which one you want nor do I know the differences between the many copies they have listed.

Tales of Destiny

Tales of Destiny 2.  I saw the LE copy too.  I don't know if it's in stock.

To put it in a non spoilerish way, you won't get to mess around with gambits until you have 3 people total in your party.

As for positioning, so far it hasn't seemed to make any difference to me.  The only time I've noticed it having any matter is some spells seem to have a LOS (line of sight - think some of grandia's spells) where you can minimize the damage by having it only hit one person in the line instead of your whole party.

I really don't miss playing alliance at all =P

I'm considering playing BC more now.  I know I'll end up ignoring my other console games if I do though.  I also need to make sure I don't play it too much this semester because I have a busy semester.  

I think also in March I may look for a new server.  Hopefully by when summer starts there will be more guilds around doing the end game content.  The 10 and 25 man content has me intrigued.

remember trying this game back in the day and thinking to myself. wow shining force 2 has better graphics than this. one could argue ps4 does as well. graphics aside the intro was pretty impressive for its time. i think i stopped playing after i got out of the cave where the moogles help you because the graphics were to crappy to keep me interested. i mean didnt this game come out after crono trigger yet they stuck with those pixelated mess of sprites

Crappy graphics?  It's a snes title.  Didn't think it was that bad really.

I didn't realize people cared enough back then to stop playing a game because one game's sprites are worse than someone else's.  I know I didn't give a damn.

Quote from: "Shooichi"
I made a new character a few chapters into the game. Of course he's useless as is, so I'm trying to level him up. What is the best way to go about that? Should I have him soloing low levels or something?

The only problem with the leveling technique sketch described is that depending who created the character, their % chance for a team attack can vary.  Also it can leave them open for the next round of enemy attacks.

I agree with Alisha though.  Team attacks are very nice.  I leveled up my top tier priest from 1 to 2000 in 10 minutes.

Depending on the class you're using and if you aren't at any particularly good power leveling place, just swapping out the best armor you currently have and giving it to that character goes a long way.  A level 1 in good armor will be untouched by many levels higher than himself in the beginning until he levels up more to the armors level.  If they are dying, try equipping them with your best muscle.  That also goes a long way in keeping them alive.

Quote from: "The Darkrider"
Suffice it to say that the mages ended up tanking half the time, which was in no way the fault of the warrior.

I don't know why more mages don't spec into burning soul or frost channeling.  Espicially mages like in your group.

I rarely pulled aggro on my mage.  Then again, burning soul has been nerfed since then from 30% threat reduction to 10% reduction.  I don't know what it's like now.  If I start my mage back up he'll be frost anyway since pure fire is shit in BC.
