The Gothamist took my picture while I was buying doughnuts last weekend and they didn't even give me a free doughnut!



Local celebrity! :D

I loved it when I was on the opening credits of our news program... for the ethnic news program... and it was a 6 year old me licking maple syrup.  But hey!  My dad loved watching it every week!

I also did a commercial... for a local furniture shop in the GTA... it's closed now.  But man, I was IN A COMMERCIAL! :D

It was more than the ass-checking, it was more the reputation as being the "girl at EBGames with the big butt" (before you picture a 300lbs lunch lady, I'm happy to say I have no gut!!).  I hate my butt, I wish I was a flat-ass, but I got  the rounded-booty that I'd rather not have at all.  I guess it falls in line with that "you're never happy with the way you look" shtick.  I'd give up my boobs and bum if it meant a nice tiny physique and an A-cup. :)

C'est la vie. :P

I find Queen overated as well, but man I love Fred Mercury's voice.  I do like Bohemian Rhapsody (I'm part of the Wayne's World era when it became popular again), and I like a few...like two other songs... but yeah, I find them overrated otherwise.
I DO like the Rolling Stones though. :D  Classic old school rock.
But in a similar vein, I find a lot of other bands are better than The Beatles.  I hate people who praise their discopgraphy, there's only a few of their tunes I can say I'd put on my iPod.

Hayden P. definitely has a kind of midgety thing going on, doesn't she?

I wonder what it's like dating a boxing champ with almost 2 feet on you. :O
..KO.

omg, i was wrong, it was earth all along.

Looks more like Hayden Panettiere to me.



Those thigh's are too thin to be hers (pretty; but she's got a bit of stub-leg going on).

Our boss at work didn't tell us it's Employee Appreciation Week! :D 
And I will read into that as I will.

...What a dick. >=/
I wanted Sonic Generation for bigger percent off than our already crappy discount.

I also found out people like checking my ass out... $^#%*&... Next job: one where I never have to bend by back downward to grab/put stuff away.  Alternatively, I wish someone at work had a nice butt/bod for me to look at. ;D 
Ah well.

Fucking Zombie's.... I don't get the fascination.  Sure, maybe a bit of fun the first 64 times.... 

Looks pretty... like to see how it (actually) plays.

Boy if you didn't like him you're going to hate the next guy.

I'll admit though I did like the Scorpion refight since he's presented as merely a midboss rather than a full one, giving me a Light World boss from LttP vibe or a more apt example would be one of the many boss refights that littered the NES games.

Midboss? I'd say he was more of a normal enemy by that point in the game. Took off 2 hearts, gave me 3 when he died... doors don't even close.

I thought the boss fights are just about perfect in Zelda games.... there's usually one or two that crumble that power-tower though.  FUCK YOU IMPRISONED... you made me overly-anxious!

Xillia's is pretty fun and has you on your toes... but the game left a lot to be desired, especially as a Tales game.

Not trying to call you out, but you don't speak Japanese at all iirc, do you? If so, it's not really a surprise you would feel that way.  How much of the game have you played?  Unless you're playing it on a different PSN account, your game list doesn't even have Xillia even being played.  Just curious here.

Regardless, I can at least take credence to Ashton's complaints because he actually speaks Japanese.

You missed the point Leyv and I made in the Xillia topic.  I can forsake a story any day (I like SO4 for goodness sake).  But I hated the fact it skipped out on staples of the series, ones that have been in every other title (minigames, costumes, sidequests, secret bosses, bonus dungeons, a Sword Dancer, cameo battles).  Hi Ougi's is one thing, hey we got some, but no matter how you spin it -- compared to other titles, the amount of effort put into this one was a STEP BACK.  That's what makes this a title you can hold off till the (IMO inevitable) Director's Cut. 

For battle system stuff, you don't need to know much Japanese, hell, most of it IS English just written in Japanese.
I didn't appreciate that comment. >=/
I miss story deets and [Japanese] character... quirks... whatever... x(
Besides, it doesn't take a genius to figure out Jude is a pussy-whipped pansy ass.

A lot of compliments actually go by the way of Graces, especially in terms of battle system.  Xillia's is pretty fun and has you on your toes... but the game left a lot to be desired, especially as a Tales game.

Could you elaborate, please?  I didn't really pay much attention to Xillia's reception, I admit.

Is this another case of the dual-protagonist system making the game much worse than it should have been?

Like Leyv said.

Not to be a hater, but I'm way more interested in Xillia... but I guess you gotta buy the eggs to get the omelette.

After some of the reception Xillia got and the fact a lot got left on the cutting board I'm not more interested in that. Certainly not without a Director's Cut coming along that comes closer to finishing the game.

When it comes to it our generation is fucked. Not only is it almost impossible to get a job w/o a degree, degrees are almost useless paper b/c by the time you get your entry level job you're in so much debt it's not funny. Plus, you can kiss any sort of retirement assistance goodbye if you're an american.

It get's uglier with degrees because despite needing them, no one gives a fuck about half of the degrees you can actually pursue (unless it's some awesome advance sciences or engineering).  It is aaallll about the piece of paper.

I'm pretty burnt out as well.  I've been doing this a while and it never seems to stop.  I *reaally* had a burn out this semester... I couldn't focus, every page of reading sucked. I dealt with work and some personal problems, a textbook was the last thing I wanted.  Like Mesh, I don't really have meaningful college/uni experiences that you usually see with the frat houses on tv/film, but I still try to make the most of it.

A lot of the responses here really make me feel better (I might say something cheesy), but I really wanna say thanks for a lot of the honest responses.

We'll see what my degrees gets me... I'll take a comfortable job to whatever to help with my slowly reddening debt.  As far as I can tell, part time jobs, unless you buy NOTHING AT ALL, will pay for diddly-squat.... maybe some pants and cereal.

I'm surprised they "themed" the first trailer.  I would have taken a more "racy" approach and had the first trailers called "DE AT  h A pProacHeS".
6824  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Youtube on: December 09, 2011, 11:02:15 PM

It was... drugged?!  I don't know how to even bribe a cat with cat-treats to do that.

Trivia of the day:
Igor is voiced by a dead guy.

I guess that explains why Margaret is doing all the explaining.

Yikes, died mid-production??
Conveniently sets up some 1-on-1 with Marge, but RIP, I guess.
