I once called a guy an unscrupulous charleton, but then he called me a pissant. I liked his term better.

A good old, "fuck you" does the trick sometimes too.
Fuck you is so 2011 though, I'm partial to fuck off these days. More generalized and less singular I think is the word I'd like to use here.

I'm going a different route, but I like where you're going.  For 2012, I shall say "Yo, fuck you, man", as a more nonchalant styling of telling people to "go away" or stop being stupid.

Arc Twilight of the Spirits pissed me off because of our main hero's crush on some avante-garde looking bitch, and ignoring the foxy and sweet one with a beauty mark on her breast.
Ah well.... then Bebedora came along, and I got happy. :)

Will have to give Arc 2 a go-go.

Do you ever feel like it's as if everyone else in life is having more fun than you? 
It doesn't help I'm saying this mid-project, and just finished work, and super tired.  But I feel like something's missing -- and if this time now is paying my dues for the future, then I'm getting sick of it.

Thanks to this though, I'm humble.  Hell, I look forward to just about anything. D:

I'm getting pestered to do some catalog work.  Good enough money, but I'm scared because it links back to one of the worst times in my whole life. I also get bummed knowing that this work would be alongside Summer school and part-time work.  No wonder god made cannabis on this stupid rock. :P

I watched Shinkai's latest, the fancifully titled: "Children Who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below". x_X
I'm sure there was a better title somewhere, but that's certainly not the Japanese style.

Anyways.  To easily sum it up, I like Shinkai, he's an extreme visionary and one of few to look forward to since Satoshi Kon's early demise.  This is his first full-length feature film, and it kinda shows, some parts move quick, some drag on too much.  The major theme is of life and death and does so in a meaningful way.  For Miyazaki fans, this film is a love-letter to him, many elements feel like they came from Ghibli themselves.  A great departure for the director, and an interesting shot at something different.

Didn't care much for the ending, but everything else was quite nice. :D

If snow is around in the city for more than a few days w/o a fresh layer it looks gross as all hell.

It's all yellow from people walking their pooches. It's like walking next to a frozen urine popsicle

hap-hap-happy chinese new year!
Year O'the dragon

I'm a dog

Take that Rats, Rabbits, Sheep, and whatever other animals my zodiac-creature could eat in one bite.

Barely IS a bit of a stretch, but when you spend something like 75% of the playtime in generic fantasy areas, yeah, it's kind of screwing up there.

Amusingly the twist probably DOES make it one of the more sci-fi entries anyway.

Naw man.  Naw.



Hate to say this but SO games have about as much SyFy tech in them as a Tales Of game. Just replace time travel with the occasional space ship and ancient cities with moon bases and you're done. Hell SO games are basically Tales Of games but with crappier magic systems and more nonsensical plots.

You start half of them within a futuristic-Earth setting. o__o
SO1 is the only one you can really argue that for since most of it takes place in "the past", while visiting "future" elements is like going to your friend's house to pick something up.
SO2: the second half (Nede) looks like a modern-day earth setting.  Hell, even elements of Expel had technological prowess.  The game starts with your being transported Star-Trek-style across the universe.
SO3: You start on a futuristic resort, visit a new-advance-dimension of super-advanced people, and technically end the game where the "universe was created".  NOT sci-fi???  NOT?
SO4: You've lost your mind if you don't think this one is sci-fi.  One dungeon is dedicated to lizards in space and you visit Area 51 itself in some retarded plot twist.  Half the peeps on your team are made from crust of sci-fi stereotypes.  Unless a giant robot on your team isn't sci-fi.

Can we agree to disagree or compromise your error in NOT calling it sci-fi by calling it a hybrid sci-fi/fantasy genre?  Clearly being solely one or the other is neither here nor there, and I am almost dumbfounded that I had to explain the above.

Skyward Sword - Finished up the Lanyru Mining Facility. The boss there was surprisingly easy. Once again, though, I found the dungeon to be extremely well design and fun. This game is really impressing me on the design front.
Now I've got a harp to play with.

As for the small genre discussion going on: In this day and age to only be playing jrpgs just seems silly to me. There are so many great games out there in almost every genre. The only genres I'm not willing to try are sports and music games. Otherwise if it gets good reviews or good worth of mouth I'm willing to try it.

Lanayru was an incredibly clever dungeon.  The boss was easy, and I think they make a point of that later on (you'll see).

And yeah, agree on the JRPG bit. I blame their inability to deliver as of late as a reason most should also look to greener pastures.

Axe revenge.  That's a dead-serious axe.  Fucking brilliant.

So it turns out my first class I'm teaching is going to be a grammar class.

Hur-fucking-ray!

The professor needs to show more enthusiasm for the material he is teaching.

Depending on the mood I guess?

Sometimes, I love a shitty rom-com story all about beating-around-the-bush.
But then, the "mood strikes" and two people hopping up a desk sounds a-okay.

But yes, in the case of a visual novel, a "cute story" is the better path.

Every dating sim needs an option to deck whoever you're talking to at any given moment. I've had enough of your snide insinuations.

I agree with this if the women are being too anime and shy about stupid shit.  The game can be half as long if either side manned-up for a minute and just said "I fucking like your ass" or something more eloquent.

I believe the game would last 5 minutes...actually I don't think they would even bother leaving the classroom. Plenty of desks.

:D
