Sounds like the games I'm getting in the next few months will last me over a year. x_X

Yay?  RPGs are back??

Capcom can eat my ass for what they did to mega man. I'll play the other games like resident evil and such, but what they did with him in sfxt really has me questioning that purchase now.

Notice how his name, in Japanese, is "megaman", not "rockman". :P
Obvious jab.  I think it's funny, but obviously a gimmick to lure sales.  Funny how it's working both ways with fans.

Work at 8, too much caffeine. Fuck it, gonna drink tap water and listen to The Breeders.

I can't even tell you how many times I've "detoxed" that same way since university  ...sans Breeders, though.

999.

I'm using an "Ending Flowchart" FAQ for so I can make the most of the endings. 
Got a "bad end"....and how!!

Poor Snake and all... but Fucking Clover went nuts with a goddamned axe!!  I'm sad it ended as soon as Junpei was gone, I would have loved to see what happened to Lo and Ace.

Awesome you can fast forward text in NG+. x(

I get setting the atmosphere of a scene, but some of the emotional chatter goes on way too long.
"Leave me behind"
"No!!"
"You must"
"No!"

"Its awkwardness is meant to suggest the capacity of adaptation brought by the modularity of the medium we use that voids any application of definition of specificity to the spaces the works co-habit —and therefore plasticises part of the way the work is read by the viewer."


I hate when people write like that:

The medium of the "art" lacks specificity and is modular in nature, plasticiZing (or changing ) the way the piece of shit is interpreted.

Is sort of my take

That's about the gist of what my mum and I could piece together after a few slow re-readings heh.

We think we also understood that it was hard to really finalize any sort of "end-meaning", I think (I may be off)


(Yeah, I hate these assholes that write like this.... why?  why why why why why???)

I need help for a paper I'm writing.  I feel it's the key to understanding some piece of crappy modern art, but I don't understand this sentence...

Work's of "art" in question, just in case you want context.
I have no clue what it means, and I feel like a doughnut for asking here.

Thoughts?

That sounds like a brilliant story and the formula for Bond-gold!!

I think we're on to something we can pitch, certainly if they make half the crap they do into movies, our story can be superb.  Let's save GYM.

And yes!!!  A fanclub... at last!  Population of Diceland: 2.

F- for tense inconsistency.

Still more than what I expect out of FFXIII-2s script. =P

I'm writing a paper meanwhile.  All my prose and grammar and focus is typing that.  My escapade with Agent... was because my mind is melting from the bullshit I'm writing.

It was in this strange moment that D. tnegA, whom I had been spending a lovely afternoon with, had decided to change the pace.  Things changed in mere moments.  D. tnegA stood up, withdrew a gun from what felt like out of nowhere from his front, and another from a sock as he lifted his left leg and shot at someone in the distance.  Shocked by this sudden outburst, I turn around before I have the time to think what is happening, and see an assailant collapsing who himself had a machine gun and machete drawn out.

"What is happening?!" I yelled out.

"Dice," D. tnegA said, "There is no time to explain.  Come with me, we have to save Gotham York Metroville from nuclear Holocaust.  Trust me... my true identity is.... the infamous Agent D."

I gasped, but under the threat of fire at the cafe, I hesitantly took a step forward with the super agent, Agent D.

By most accounts you're creating a better story than FFXIII-2 has anyway.

More natural than "It's by turn to change the future...!".

I gotta start catching up on PS3 titles.  A lot of the early stuff is around $10 -- defnitely worth a small splurge.

Sounds good. It'll be like brunch, only less mimosas and more complaining about life and how the men our lives treat us like dirt. We're worth so much more!

"We really should do this more often, huh?" I said as I had a sip of my espresso and ate a few leaves of my chicken caesar salad.

Fuck my life, was super excited to get ffxiii-2 tuesday morning. Now I'm stuck working 9 til possibly 9 maybe later depending on how quickly I can mount a 60inch plasma tv by myself. Even tried rescheduling to get tuesday off...no go. Sadface.exe :(

I'm in the same boat.  Wednesday.  Probably won't eve be playing it that day or the next.... fuck my life.

Let's go complain and moan in grief together.
Can't, working that day and the day after. Can I take a raincheck?

S'all good... I'm studying my ass off for midterm.  Occasional moaning/grieving PMs? :P
6029  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenoblade on: January 29, 2012, 11:51:48 PM
Anyways, something I didn't look at in here, but are you stuck using shitty motion controls ala every fucking terrible wii game ever? Gotta say, if so, will not be running to play this as fast as I thought. Better yet, can you use a gamecube controller to play?

The game doesn't use motion even if you DO use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, and the GC isn't supported nor would it honestly be a good idea, all four shoulder buttons and the Back button are used so they would've needed to make a third control scheme to accommodate it, not to mention that if you hate that little, somewhat out of the way D-Pad on the GC controller you'd be stuck with it for Arts selection. Some like the Wii Remote + Nunchuk setup best, but if you'd still prefer a standard controller than just get a Classic Controller Pro for this.
Okay glad you cleared that up. Glad I bought my sister that classic controller for her wii...that I bought her as well.

Also, I just read that article. Really, you bought that article as legit. Chu chu breeding and arena? Cmon, if you played a xeno game you can't be that gullible.

I agree. It should have been plainly obvious that the article was false.
