More Kirby Return to Dreamland.

Wow!!  You beat all 5 worlds and it then just opens up the whole game again.  One thing I admire about the series is its knack to make some pretty creepy bosses (even contrast to the fact you're playing through bubblegum, rainbow, sunshine levels that were taken from a kid's dream world).

Case in point: Zero2

MUTHAFUCKA IS CRYING BLOOD AND IS SOME SORTA ANTI-ANGEL.  Nightmare fuel....

Funny enough, abilities I hate taking on tend to be awesome for bosses.  Hi-Jump is crap unless the game throws it on you, Tornado is too unpredictable, and Stone too slow.  But come boss battles, I find they work the best.

This dude looks like a lot like Doomtrain from FFVIII.

But can you suplex this train?

And then Sabin holds up a house later.  Time to really question who's a bigger man: Sabin, or boulder punching Chris Redfield.

Almost ridiculous this game is going with an "FF" in the title...  Fuck.  Fuck fuck fuck.  I WANT THIS SHIT

Imma just start calling Dance Dance Revolution as East Germany. It makes sense to me.

I'M NOT GAY BUT SOMETIMES I LIKE NAKED MEN.

Pretty much always... feel like time isn't linear, around this time of year.

I worked from home yesterday and was a lot more productive than in the office.

Your caps reminds me of that one like in Brokeback Mountain, where after their immediate and passionate [homosexual] love making, Heath Ledger leaves the tent they did it in and beautifully responds, "I ain't queer!!!" and convincing no one.  Good movie, but I hated that line...


But it's sort of accurate to how people react. I was kinda known for preying on the sexually confused in High School (don't judge me -.-), and pretty much all of them had a moment like that.

I can only imagine what that's going against the grain like that -- can't be easy I guess. =(

And (Tunnels), thanks for that, I actually feel better and more confident in my bullshitting. =)

In a similar but different vein of your conundrum, I hate Augusts, I get weird seasonal affective disorder in that lump of time at the end of summer (as opposed to mid-winter).  And every so often I get hit with such a nasty case of "what the hell am I doing with my life" and other self-loathing/feeling-sorry-for-myself thinking that I just lie face forward and curied in the cushions of my couch, butt up.

I'm currently writing a 1,500 word paper.  Which isn't much, but the topic is ludicrous that it's going to be 500 good and honest words, and the rest pure BS.

After a police chase, a man commits suicide on live camera.
The site warns it's graphic, but it's so far away.

Still, kinda weird to see someone "in the process" of dying like that. =/

Why is the boxart missing one of the coolest party members?? D:

Grim: sorry, I sorta replied from my phone and skimmed right passed [capital-B] Bacon mention...

Yeah, I liked that movie too; Hathaway did a great job and I thought her big reveal was pretty big and deep.  I thought the wedding was stupid, but I guess provided an interesting forum for the plot.

Only movie I really remember hating in recent years (and I mean "hate") was Magnolia.  What an annoying movie.

Is that the one with Bacon??  (ps I love Bacon...both types)
It was on my "to watch" list till I realized I saw a ton of dark and sad movies and switched on over to more happier stuff for a bit.

Anyways, I watched "The Five Year Engagement".  Colour-coded name because the movie has a very yellow and blue filter, I actually don't think any green is in this movie.  ...anyways.
Lots of fun, great couples movie especially if you dig the "Apatow" humour of 40 Year Old Virgin and Forgetting Sarah Marshall.  Jason Segal is just downright likeable despite being this kinda unattractive, gigantic friendly bear on screen.  Both Emily Blunt and Alison Brie are in it, both performing really well too.  One thing I admired was that it hit an all too common problem that most couples run into at some point and make their point through a metaphor about "old donuts". 

I recommend it; it's a bit longer than it needs to be (I call this a common problem in Apatow-style flicks though); but one thing I loved that another reviewer put better than I did, was that the characters in these flicks are people you really just wanna "hangout" with.

I remember asking "wtf is Qoga?", someone said, "it means 'life' in the ArTone language!!!!!"

WHAT THE HELL GOOD IS THAT TO ANYONE??  I thought that was a terrible name, without a doubt ostracized some people curious about the title and can't make sense of it...  it was bad enough "Ar Tonelico" technically means nothing beyond fancy being a video game name.

JRPGs can be pretty bad for these in-game referencial titles.  Radiant Historia is a bit of a mouthfull (and just down right confusing when people remember a similar-sounding PS2 title), and again, doesn't really mean anything.

Recent WRPG example would have to be Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning  I get the first half, but I assume the "reckoning" was put in because a sequel would have a different name.  Maybe I'm complaining about this one because there was no consistency with it at work, sometimes we'd have it filed under "K" for Kingdoms or "R" for Reckoning.

Sort of an aside, anyone remember the beautifully redundant game title: Divine Divinity??  Brilliant!!

I really don't think someone won't touch a game if they can't make sense of the title; I actually think people are more likely to judge a book by its cover than by its title.  People ask me about "El Shaddai" all the time.

Did you try the Atelier series ? I first gave them a chance this gen and I had a lot of fun with Atelier Rorona, Totori and Meruru.

I'm surprised we've had no mention of Ayesha... shame, cuz it sounds like it got rid of the crappier parts of the Arland [?] series.

Everyone hear the vocal version of Terra's theme song (ff6)??
I should have added this when we talked about it -- anyways, I actually thought it was a nice rendition.

I'm going to go home after all that, take off all my clothes

Was there more to that post?

(Btw welcome to miderms)

I just found out I have three weeks of vacation in December. \(^^)/
Scuba diving!

I had some editing troubles, changed what I wrote, deleted, forgot to put back, posted, and you caught it.  Haha
But year, seriously.  Good news about midterms is a lot of games come out around them, specifically Assassin's Creed and Res 6 which involve lots of killing as an outlet for exam frustration. :D
