I'd be interested if that said "PSN" instead of "Steam" :(

Paypal is super simple and easy for everyone.  It lets people wire money really quickly and it gives you their address so you don't have to ask.  Only problem can be getting it from Paypal-to-BankAccount (iirc, they have a service for that; but you can easily just use the digital money as an "online gift card" so to speak).

I don't even see your elipsis-abuse any more, Klyde. :P Got used to you.



Attack on Titan

Jesus Christ this comic is intense.  Are you reading it?  Why aren't you reading it???
The terribly grotesque nature of the story and plot features what is nothing short of psychologically frail human beings that make the plot and characters of Neon-Gen: Evangelion look like a bunch of pussies

That is a bold and enticing statement! Certainly enough to grab my attention. I will go and look into this "titans" and report back... and I'll do so with even LESS ellipses next time!! progress my friends.... progress...  :)

 

I won't lie, at first the frequent elipses drove me a bit nuts at first... [dot dot dot], but I got used to them, and I kinda like them.  It's like a Klyde-Trademark, a quality you just come to expect.  Nah, keep doing it.

And please give Attack on Titan a read!!  I'd love to gush with someone about it, then brag (or hate on it) here to get others interested!

Don't be sad Dice, if you're sad, then I'm gonna be sad. And if I get sad, then Yoda's gonna get sad.....and if yoda gets sad, then goosey is sure to get sad...

You're gonna make us all cry :(

I won't lie, I was pretty sad haha
But that post made me giggle. x)

Thanks Agent.  And, reading your posts, try not to push it too hard at the gym.  If you hurt something, you'll be out from it for a while.  Oh, and I was in class and couldn't respond, but your "fart" incident when you were doing your weights made me "lol" -- fo reals.

I hated how gross and drab everything felt in Infamous.  The second one was cool though and it gets better as you go.  But...eh.
IIRC, quite a few of the Ass Creeds are free as well.

And yeah, I hear PS+ is grand.  I'm sure they fixed it up when they realized their service wasn't worth the [somewhat large] fee for what it actually offered. 
6215  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: March 25, 2013, 09:38:08 PM
Fuck...

I just found out I failed a test I thought I did well on.  I don't even know how this happened.  I got a 48%, which while isn't *terribly* bad it is certainly not one of my prouder moments. 

I'm gonna go curl up in a corner.

Every test in my life has always ended in an unpredictable result. I fear tests :P. Tests I think I do well in, I do bad, tests I think I did poorly in, I do good. I've given up trying to predict or even feel confident with these things.

Heh, thanks Mongoosey.  I'm a bit bummed right now, but it always helps to know other people are in the same boat, always does.
I've had a real shit time this semester too, nothing hurts efforts than thinking they might now pay off effectively.

Thanks. :)  And yeah, you're right... I can't predict marks anymore.  Except when it comes to math... I just know I'll do bad and maybe cry once because I'm a pussy when it comes to math..... D'oh.

Anyone know if there's an "Easy" mode?  I want the game, but my lack of time with school, hobbies, and the fact I suck at FPS's makes me just wanna enjoy the experience without too-too much hassle.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/bioshock-infinite/achievement/76369-Tin-Soldier.html

I got the "One Tin Soldier Rides Away" song stuck in my head now.  SPANKS.

Curious endgame spoiler hitting the grapevines:
Code:
Apparently has some "12 Monkeys" feel to it... we'll see if that actually turns out true
6218  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Random and Amazing Pictures, Please! on: March 25, 2013, 01:48:17 PM
No, but there's a different sort of connection when I sit and watch a movie or if I pick a character that I personally control for 10-20 hours. If the game is fun and the co-op is there (hello!) then that's fine. To me there's a line between cartoonish and pointlessly garish.

Then that's just personal preference getting in the way.  Quite frankly, most female super hero outfits annoy me for the same reason of being pointlessly ostentatious.
While I'm not to keen on excessive "boob-ing" myself, especially with how Vanillaware handled it in the past, I am thrilled with Dragon Crown's depiction of including fit, thin, and voluptuous body types.

I hope you can see the other part of it though: monster design and even the animation of the characters is really out of this world.

Also, in my four years of art history, I've come to the conclusion many artists are either weird or just plain perverted (NSFW!!...but hilarious ancient art).

6219  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Random and Amazing Pictures, Please! on: March 25, 2013, 01:37:15 PM
The rest are just as caricatured.
It's a cartoon.  No one complains about Jessica Rabbit ruining "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?".

And again, I think the developers were trying to keep it balanced between boobs [witch], muscles [amazon], and the more "averaged-out" elf.
6220  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Random and Amazing Pictures, Please! on: March 25, 2013, 01:27:47 PM
Either way though, the Amazon is still fucking ridiculous.

...And you genuinely feel bothered by that? Because I don't see the problem here.

Me neither, it's very different.  And the men are just as ridiculously proportioned (the Fighter's arms are like twice the width of his head, and the Dwarf is clearly 'roided out).



Ooooh noooo a girl with muscles.  I know they overdo it a bit there, but what else will happen when you swing around a giant weapon or do physically strenuous work?  If you go to a Cirque do Soleil show, you'll see some of the women have a proper six-pack.  Not sure if it's because they find it attractive (but that's besides the point), but its just something that happen as an occupational circumstance.  Quite frankly, I admire they went such a route -- who the fuck else has?  Anime-like games in general are overall just *way* too satisfied having a little 90lb girl flailing a gigantic weapon the rest of the time.
It's balanced out anyways; the Witch is meant as a 200% sex-pot (the fact you fellas are actually finding HER ridiculous is humorous almost; quite frankly it's how I've felt about the over-machismo'd Street Fighter roster for YEARS -- those guys have muscles on top of muscles), while the Elf really doesn't stand out anywhere (except featuring a bit of Chun-Li thigh).

I hate trying to sneak through the Gerudo fortress.

Sneaking? Pull out your bow and murder them all.

Haha oh believe me, it's the only thing I enjoyed in raiding the fortress.
I just hate those "back to start" parts in games when you make a fuck up.

And Mesh:  Good to know about plot details.  IIRC I think where you set your "map" up at the beginning of the game can affect which quests you can get and can't... which I call a bunch of bull, but, hokay.
And yeah, like you said, unless you jack up the difficulty, a lot of these points feel moot anyways because the game isn't terribly difficult.

Attack on Titan

Jesus Christ this comic is intense.  Are you reading it?  Why aren't you reading it???
The terribly grotesque nature of the story and plot features what is nothing short of psychologically frail human beings that make the plot and characters of Neon-Gen: Evangelion look like a bunch of pussies.  The action is really fantastic (involving interesting developments, limbs flying or people getting crushed, or sometimes just sheer brutality -- one chapter barely relied on any words and just showed a good damn fight).  But amongst all that and all the "shitty things" that happen to the humans in the story, we get really strong characters whether they're main or secondary figures to the plot.  Every so often the story dips into other players in the story to help tell the other parts going on outside of the main three characters (sometimes going a few chapters without them even being really involved).

The art style is wonderful, although it can sometimes look a bit strange and awkward, but it still jives and works well within the story.  The Titans themselves can often be anywhere from perfectly fit to...incredibly misshapen and anatomically incorrect.  But this can add to the overall frightening character of the titans, especially with respect to when some open of their elongated arms or larger-than-normal mouths to pursue human flesh in a strange act of "giant-people" [i.e. Titans] engaging in what is basically cannibalism.  Quite often the horror is so up front and personal with characters you may have gotten to know to some extent and really feel their pain.  I can that of how NieR was similarly unafraid to wreck its characters or at least put them through hell.

I'm writing now because I'm sadly almost done what's available (iirc, it's 11 volumes so far).  I highly recommend it if you're bored with the slice-of-life or comedy types (you'll find little of that genre here), some good action, and a sense of macabre and fantasy.  I'm also writing in reaction to three bizarre and almost frightening plot twists that left me all "O"-faced.

If you don't like it you can come and find me and slap me.  There is a great atmosphere in this story, and I don't really feel like I'm reading the "typical" manga at all.
6224  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Annoying Moments in otherwise Great Games on: March 24, 2013, 11:50:46 AM
Mesh's wall o' text reminded me of a few other annoying aspects of otherwise popular games.

Chrono Cross: S.S. Zebless
Legend of Mana: The gameplay.
Ocarina of Time: Poe hunting, getting Dampé to dig up that piece of heart.

Adding to yours --

C Cross: Both Zelbess visits sucked duck.. I also hate the way the game takes you to new locations.  "Let's go there!" "oh, hokay"
Legend of Mana: I honestly don't get a lot of the additional character building elements... placing places to get materials is odd and terribly explained.  Also, I don't know if it's the script or translation, but I feel whenever I play it I'm reading "Mrewn flandrest clertersal ung prowerdening" -- it looks english, but I have no idea what's being said half the time or why.
i have no ideas whats going on
Ocarina of Time: Dampé as well, but his grave chase.  I usually don't fuck it up, but it's just annoying to deal with.  Numerous parts of the shadow temple (mostly because I think the hover boots suck ass), and I hate trying to sneak through the Gerudo fortress.
6225  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Random and Amazing Pictures, Please! on: March 24, 2013, 03:35:32 AM
I love men but that doesn't stop me from staring at this longer than I should have.
I think I'm more impressed that these over-sized breasts actually moving like breasts of that size might move.
