I think I may just end up getting the psp versions of breath of fire 3 and V Profile. I hear they are both pretty faithful

Played VP last year and got Breath of Fire III in the mail two days ago.  VP is out of this world (use a guide, though, maaaay help since in-game is terrible at telling you things) and Breath of FIre III is classic and (along with Kartia) was my first PSX games.  ...you never forget your first,

I kinda see where Ashton is going.  Kind of like where even if "it's about the inner beauty that matters" -- a bit of up-keep on your end can go a long-ass-way with the opposite sex.  Same with bullying.  It's good not to bully, and it's good not to be one, and as much as it's important to be passive about it to not make it worse, I can't recommend doing nothing about it either.  You do have to take a stand at some point, either with others or just growing a tougher skin (bullies [and job interviewers] can smell the sweat off a nervous person).

So, if you've at all been looking at film reviews, Pixar's Brave is up on most major sites.

A lot of reviews, "average" being the most common and the median. But a lot saying this is definitely not Pixar's best, and it's extraordinary likeness to another cartoon feature: Brother Bear.

More than that, though. I'm stunned at the amount of sexist commentary from idiot reaction posts that state a reason for the film's lack of "pow" is its female lead. Even if FF13 is a stink-bomb, you see much fan postings and admiration (or certainly lack of any real negative feedback), it feels like a lot of people like Lightning for being quite the action heroine.  Kill Bill is probably one of few female-action flicks done extremely right (and on the other end, Suckerpunch sat really poorly with another lot).

I saw the same for some idiot gabbing about Legend of Korra who didn't like, specifically, a "female" lead where he [and to top it off] had an forum icon of Saber from the anime series, Fate.

Sorry, I'm going in a bit of a tangent here, but a topic I think would be interesting to pipe up on and it sorta hurt to see some neanderthal poo-poo women in a lead role.  But what are your thoughts?

It seems women are having trouble getting out of a type casted role of being the more dainty and delicate type, like the hit show Girls still kind of hitting common ideas and tropes for women.  But no matter what, they seem to have trouble stepping into the limelight.  Then in another vein of Hollywood Ageism, Steve Carrel (a man of almost 50) is flirting with 20-something Keira Knightley in Seeking a Friend at the End of World -- how can [older] women compete? 

Needly to say, I'm sorry if this comes off a bit bias, and no, I'm not going to be standing outside of Parliament, burning my bra -- but that's not to say it doesn't bug me, and it sometimes feel like women keep pushing their own stereotypes that make it hard to rise above it.  Things have gotten better, but it doesn't look like things will get much better from this point, at least, not anytime soon.

(haha, I also kinda feel like I'm preaching to a den of wolves, whom, besides me and a few other ladies here, really are the "little guys" in this).

Why all the hate? VC3 Vita or VC4 are likely in development, the series is still alive.

Likely in development?

Some people like to import, and it costs more to enforce region locking on a software level.

A good 25% of the games I play are imported.

I *know* people like to import -- I'm iasking rhetorically what's the POINT of a region lock; I'm upset at it too. 

Stop misunderstanding my posts. =(
I guess I should have made it more clear as well.

That's likely the biggest blunder they made when it comes to the 3DS. Who the fuck thought that was a good idea?

Why is it *ever* a good idea?  "What's the big fucking deal?" I always wondered.

Damn Young Offenders Act!  I wanted a follow up!

I can't even tell you how hard I'd slap my kid across the ass or face if I heard this.  Not so much for what was said, but because it went on for not one minute, two minutes, three --- FOR FUCKING TEN MINUTES.  I can't imagine how "it's wrong" slips your mind at any point.

And Ashton, I was more or less saying the same thing.

I was surprised they announced the XL model so quickly. Makes me sadface. Only thing that makes me feel better about my expensive, inferior 3DS purchase is that it's the Zelda model.
Wrong, Zelda model owners are in possession of the one original 3DS that is OBVIOUSLY SUPERIOR to the new XL versions coming out.

I agree... and interesting.  Just noticed 3DS XL does not have an additional analog.

^No, neither episode was bad at all.

Sooo... meaning? 

I liked them.  Usualy Futurama biznas.  Predictable but highly entertaining.  I did like the running gag with Fry's glow and lucky pants.

ACCEPTED -- Because I like his pants!

How this isn't an FF game is kind of stunning.  I want.. why no NA release?
6506  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Nintendo 3DS XL Launching July 28 JPN/EUR and August 19 NA on: June 22, 2012, 01:25:22 AM

Why are they so resistant to dual analog? fuck nintendo.

"Coincidentally" looks like a Wii U tablet.

I learned that if you don't want to get bullied by assholes you have to be an assholes to them. Is the only way they understand sadly... I don't know how some of those people believe that they are the center of the universe and have the right to make fun of other people.

*sigh* Still, thinking about this can make anyone angry, very angry. But hey there's always a way to fight back this BS.

The very few times I was bullied (I don't even know why, bitch had a grudge about nuthin'), I did essentially the same.  I stood up for myself, not really by fighting back with my fists but by basically not caring and telling them to go away because I didn't care.  But generally, it does help to not be such a simple push over and really just leave them alone, let them complain on their own.

Blind contestant on The Voice stuns the [like blinded?] judges when she belts it out.  Amazing voice, loved the judge panels' reaction to it. x)

Horrible Bosses

I liked this quite a bit!  Not L-O-L non-stop funny, but it's a lot of fun anyways, and the cast really works well together.  I *hate* Jason Batemen though, he has a face I want to punch.  But anyways...  Also, in the vein of a "black comedy", I was hoping someone would have hooked-up with Jen Aniston's sex-crazed character than manage to take care of her -- the running joke being "she's not necessarily a bad type of a problem".  The bosses were great as well, but then again, it's generally a really strong cast.
I recommend it.

Friends with Benefits

I liked this more than I thought I would -- it's a pretty mature take on the rom-com given the concept revolves around pretty friendly fuck buddies, and it does fall into the common tropes by the end.  I think the fact it starts with sex and becomes a part of their relationship kind of weakens their eventual hook-up oddly enough, and I didn't really feel the conviction for it by the end, but it was still a great title mainly in part of Kunis' and Timberlake's chemistry together being pretty strong and suave.  Recommended if you have a girl (maybe it'll "warm her up"??? ;D ...sorry), or, fellas, if you're in the mood for mood for a guilty pleasure.
An extra star goes to Mina Kunis telling a guy to fuck himself.  You go girl!

Shame Legaia 2 was terrible.

I kinda liked it.  I couldn't beat it though because the combos got too long, and enemy HP to high which eventually wore me out.
