I think I've said it before, but gaming DID help after a break-up, it was nice to focus my attention elsewhere.

Otherwise, I've always had a love for videogames even on the simple basis of rarely having a time where I've been "bored".  I hate when people tell me they are, what a waste of perfectly good time.  Gaming has always been a fun challenge to mix up in free time. :D

Playing Colossus right now. Game looks good, but my beef w/ the team ico games is that it seems like they jacked up the gamma setting to the max. Everything has a washed out white look to it. I turned down the ingame brightness but everything still looks too bright/white/whatever.

That shit made it so i couldn't play SotC. Riding the horse gave me motion sickness because of the color palettes. It's too bright I wanted to play the game but it made me sick, literally. If it's still that way in the HD version i doubt I'll get it.

It doesn't seem as bad as let's say Ico on PS2, but it sure is there. With some adjusting of settings it's more tolerable.

It seems like it's worse at certain parts in the game, like during cutscenes.

I only had enough time to beat the 1st guy, and that was fun as hell.



I'm looking forward to exploring more later.

The first game was just as white in parts.  I say it's all for effect!

Boyfriend buy for me, Stephie is happy. x)
The Dynamic Theme that comes with.... well, the ICO one is terrifying and unsettling (Yorda is a cage, with some rust-coloured hues? Yeah, nein), the SotC one is now my new theme though (it's the temple-top garden[?]).

Minor thing; but many I love pausing the game to get that awesome map zoom-out effect.
Beat the first Colossi.... I fucken suck at this game again.

Even though the HD is almost reason enough to buy it, I can't spend the money now... I just can't. =(
*cryyy*

I propose a pair of engagement pants. Once your +1 can no longer fit them, the marriage is annulled.

I lol'd and told everyone via text. xD

I hope so!

She made some awesome pumkin soup today.

We cook a lot.

I'll be asking the question soon. Maybe in a month.



Wow... can't even imagine.  I always think you gotta be the greatest girl to have any fella wanna dedicate the rest of his life.  You probably found such a catch. =)
I'm jelly!

I'm a lucky man. My girlfriend does not want a ring when I propose for marriage. She wants instead a set of copper cookware. I'm shopping around for some while at work.

This stuff is still expensive, but it's at least something practical. And it's not AS expensive as some of the rings my friends have gotten their partners.

Plus I know a guy at a store. Hopefully he can get me a discount.

Yoda poppin' question?! :O

Haha, I have this lovely vision of you later in life.  I see you with a bit of belly because the wife cooks some good home-cooked food, haha x)

Very healthy choice.

Seeing as I beat this yesterday, let me give you some tips. The pod on the left has 2k HP. Crono, if you're using him, should be using Frenzy or Luminare. The body has 10k HP, but dishes out serious attacks. The one on the right is the toughest, with 30k HP. One you kill the pod on the left, focus on the body.  Use attacks that hit multiple enemies, if possible. It should take about five minutes overall.

Thanks a bunch, Van-G. :)

Dice iirc you just have to kill the bits in the last lavos battle or something.

You have to kill all 3 parts before they revive each other.
The main part can revive both bits and the bits can revive the main part.
They have HPs of about 2000, 10 000 and 20 000.
To be able to do damage to the main part, you need to destroy one bit.

See...  it's super easy ;) that or doing this fight more than 50 times just makes it so.

D:)


Am I supposed to tilt my head left or right? Because it gives 2 very different smileys =P

I feel complicated... =(

Mario Kart 7 is going to be released December 4 in North America and I want to know why box arts with angry faces are so used over there.

>:(

Go-Karting... is some SERIOUS business.

Kirby Mass Attack. 

Adorable game, it's so cute to see 10 Kirby's running over each other and sort of... chatting [?] (kirby squeals, but it's not annoying, but darling, and still quiet).  The medallions are fun to get and open up some cool mini-games, and really make you explore the level.


I can see later levels being a pain in the ass.  Keeping track of the many characters can be a pain, but essentially it won't be an easy ride unless you have all 10.  I guess it's a bit better than Squeak Squad, hell, you can beat that, 100%, in a single day.  I'm pretty sure I did. 

Like my post colours?  Yip yip!

Also playing more CT, wrapping up sidequests and about to hit the Black Omen.  Bah.  I remember Lavos being a pain in the ass -- not looking forward to it (then again, this game has been alternatively easier than I remembered too).

Also fitting in Picross.... because I love that game more than this forum... it actually might be true now that I think about it.   But this place has more character. :D

School is an awesome time for handhelds.

Everyone, lower your swords. I say we drop this argument and all go on a grand online adventure together on Final Fantasy XIV.

A response like this from you is awesome.  And so is a response like that

As for games, I'm pretty good at remembering what I've played. There's a few fuzzy moments, like that one hour of Super Mario 64 before I turned it off after the camera made me nauseous.

I actually still remember that myself.  I didn't get nauseous, though, but I remember what it was like for the first time to "adjust to 3D gaming" and getting weirded out by a rotating camera as I moved.... I walked into walls many-a-time.

Casablanca - Finally saw this! I don't know what took so long, but the deed is now done. Was it a good movie? Yes. of course. The best ever? Not by a long shot. But I can see how people at the time may have thought so. It's all very romantic and intriguing, with all sorts of interesting characters, all out for themselves. Oddly enough, the first glimpse inside of Ricks saloon reminded me of Star Wars and the bar scene in that movie. Weird!
Ingrid Bergman was a beautiful woman. Bogart was...Bogart. Always good. I really liked the police captain character, working all sides.
I felt the end was a bit rushed and contrived. The movie could have used another 10 minutes or so to flesh things out. Still, I can see why it is beloved, and am glad I finally saw it.

I felt the exact same when I saw Citizen Kane.  I *loved* it, but certainly not for the amount of love that decades have enamored it with.  Ladies back then were so beautiful, and I love the more classic "love" idea you see.
