1 Canadian dollar = .75 US dollars right now.

80 * .75 = 60

You're paying the same damn price...

Aren't you Canadians paying taxes through the nose to fund your glorious socialized health care?  Your complaints are bordering on offensive to someone like me, who will be put in the poor house by Obamacare next year.

You know if you're actually in the poor house it's free.

Just realized that after I pay bills at the end of this month, I will officially have no money to pay the next month's bills. At this point I'm throwing applications in wherever they'll land and I still can't seem to get a new job.

Been there, and in my experience just sending out applications is borderline meaningless.  It doesn't matter how qualified you are, most companies consider even looking at the pool of unsolicited applications they receive to be a last resort.  If you actually want to get a job you have to go out and network.

Actually, I think video games are definitely something people will age out of. Games generally require more thought/reflexes and interaction, so unlike movies, you'll be more likely to not be able to play video games by your 50's, whether it's from a lack of interest or time to invest in them, or just physically becoming unable to do it - time wears on the mind and body.

There's something incredibly ironic about making this claim in the middle of a discussion about the merits of keeping FFVII turn-based.  I can't imagine ever 'aging out' of being able to play a turn-based game...

(P.S.: 50s, really?  Give yourself a little more credit.  I know people in their 70s who still climb mountains.)

I was in college (in some capacity) for 11 years.  I was basically a pro student.  First you get used to it, then you get sick of it, then you miss it when you're done.

Only 11 years?  Amateur.

Wait, you don't mean 11 years of undergrad, do you?  If so then nevermind...

Death Battle: Starscream vs. Rainbow Dash (My Little Pony)


The comments on that video make my brain hurt...

New unpopular opinion: Disgaea sucks! Discuss.
Eh I liked Disgaea 1, but the whole game type has just gotten old to me. I don't know if I'd say it is bad, but I have no interest in playing any more games that grindy. >.>

My favorite Disgaea was probably 2 to be honest.  Which certainly isn't a popular opinion, but whatever.  They refined the mechanics enough to make them just right (honestly some of the changes in the later games feel like they're there just for the sake of having changes so they can say they did something...) and I actually enjoyed the fact that the plot wasn't completely goofy.  Which isn't to say it didn't have goofy moments, but the overall story felt more legit.

But when people talk about Disgaea nobody seems to like 2 and I've gotten thoroughly sick of the series' antics since then so I don't even play them anymore...

Rokka no Yuusha / Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers

It's so obvious that it's Goldof who is working with the demons so that he and Nashetania get immunity while all the other Braves die.

(This post will not be edited. Let's have fun and come back to it later)

So I've read the novel, and (spoilers)

Nope.  You're dead wrong.
69  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Which "Tales of" games have you played more than once? on: August 30, 2015, 03:30:59 AM
I couldn't even finish Xillia 1...never got around to getting 2.

Honestly I've never played through a Tales game twice.  But then there aren't a whole lot of RPGs I *have* played through more than once.  And most of the ones I have are like from the SNES era.  No time these days...

But I have thought about playing through Graces f because whatever else you might think of the story and characters it's just friggin fun to play.

Personally I think 20th Century Boys was the worst of Urasawa Naoki's works.  It was so contrived...well most of his stuff can be pretty hit-or-miss though.  Monster was fantastic but my fondness for it is not enough to overlook the serious flaws in much of the other stuff he's written...

I saw it, I'm sorry!!!!  I was just kinda posting it again for reference to the image :(
I went through my favourites to find it D:


I watched your video Kevadu. I won't lie, I was a little scared.

But it was amazing...

I linked to that video like a month ago in the youtube thread here and nobody cared :(

Madden 16 commercial is the greatest video game commercial ever made!

It's like EA Marketing was like:
"Are you sure we need to advertise MADDEN of all things?"
"No... probably not. But look at all this money they gave us to do so."
"Well then I guess we should do SOMETHING."
They seriously spent a lot of money making this...
Meanwhile....the actual game LOOKS EXACTLY THE FUCKING SAME AS LAST YEAR!!!!!

Well now we know what they spent all their money on.

Yeah, not drinking away your calories is a really good easy option to lose weight. Starbucks stuff, while I've never been a coffee person, some of their stuff takes up more than half my entire days calories.

The funny thing is, coffee itself has barely any calories at all.  An entire cup of black coffee has literally about 2 calories.  It's all the other crap they put in it that's the problem...

Do you guys not play FPSs?  I can't imagine ever using a gamepad for an FPS when I had the option for mouse+keyboard...
