I watched it while I was eating.... I regret it.

Every so often they come out with an episode that is so good it's bad (or vice versa).

I kinda shrugged with the Shepard mention as well.  She could have easily been male, and the decisions you make as the character could also paint the way for her to be a hero (true enough) or an asshole...or whatever in-between.  The game was essentially designed, as Aeolus said, to be neutral to the sex of the main character, and kinda makes this an awkward "hero/ine" choice.

Samus was an odd choice as well.  We don't really get much from her except for the teen tantrums she had.  I don't know... I kinda liked the mystery behind her before Metroid Other M.  They added an emotional side to her that, I personally, thought she could overcome on her own.  It added humanity, but in exchange for a, what I thought, was a stronger character, something I felt we had all the years prior with her.
Same kinda goes with Aya Brea.  Whatever cred she had got lost within the mish-mash of 3rd Birthday.

I like Kaine there... mostly because of the chit-chat she could stir.  She essentially acted like a man, certainly told people to "piss off" (to put in cleanly) like one.  For some reason, I loved her outfit; it was sexy, but she was never seen as a "sex object" who played on it.  Hell, she doesn't even mention her attire.

Shirley Fennes needs to be where she is, no argument there.  I'd actually throw Mint up there amongst the worst for boring me half to death.  I'd throw an honourable mention to Tear Grants; she didn't get kidnapped, she stayed tough and fought through some family issues...literally (mind you, anyone notice how eager she was to kill her brother at the start of the game?  And how much more emotional she got about it later on? Wish-washy woman!!)

I admire how Celes took the reins over Terra.  I personally loved FF6 for it's... I'd definitely say, *dual* female lead.

Asking Princess Peach to change by this point would just be awkward though.  The concept of Mario is hard to take seriously when it looks like a giant acid trip by any other standard.  I think she's one of the cases of "she is what she is", you can't really say Mario is much more interesting, hell, he's just as bad a stereotype and a peculiar looking hero by any other trope for it.

What's your point? Every character in a story can be broken down into certain archetypes, it's how stories are structured and there's not a lot of variation when you get down to it.

I think this has been a long neglected point about game characters (or any character).  I think it helps make reading and understanding these characters less of a headache, we need some archetypes to get some ground about creating a person.

I'd actually be happy if you won money off of this.  Hmmm, forum gambling....

I'm so happy.  All B's and up on my semester... surprising, since I slacked so much by the end, and studied so little for exams.

I also just bought an artbook I've BEEN DYING FOR, FOR YEARS on sale, 40% off on eBay (bleh, but...) within 10 MINUTES of the sale ending.  I pissed off the seller previously, so I had to register real fucking fast with a different e-mail.  Got it, within one minute of the sale being over.  I went and hugged my dog.  ..... this is excitement in my life.... fuck...

what book?

and nice job on the grades.

Ah!!  Thank you Yoda, I appreciated and was flattered by the support despite our distance and only knowing you through occasional banters over RPGfan.  :)

I promise to be equally supportive of you and finding a job.  Just remember, Canada needs and is looking for doctors and medical staff. :D
It'd be nice having you, we have only finest maple syrup, and BEAVER as our national animal.

If you throw in a bean bag chair, I'll take everything for $1000.

My parents took over the TV. Now I can't have fun with science...

I was watching some science program, some lady going on about stuff... lemme just say... she blinded me with science!!

Depends on your face really, different styles work for different people, but Id say that if you think you can pull off short hair then go for short. If not, keep it long. I suppose if you're really on the fence you could try to edit a picture of yourself to get a rough idea of what it might look like.

I tried that.... but for going blond.  I came to realize: it's a colour I should not be allowed near.

Yay!!  Hair cut!  ... it's a shorter version of what I had before...! ... :D

Went and tried to see "Fast Five" with the boyfriend today, he wanted to go, and I felt it fair since he agreed to see Evagelion 2.0 with me when it was here (he doesn't like/watch anime himself).  I wasn't expecting an Oscar winning film, let's face it, you're going for cars, 'splosions, cars, stunts, and (of course) dem ladies fine asses.  

Long story short, it was sold out at both theater we went to.... and jesus christ, it was a sad display.  First off, a lot of nice cars were out, but in a small court area in front of the theater and restaurants, some dick-wads were driving souped up cars (blue lights, flashing headlights, and revving engines) in a public walking space like it was some sort of dick measuring contest...but with cars.  It was actually kinda funny.

Ah well, maybe another time.

Phantasia GBA definitely isn't the best version of the game, with that honor going to either the PSX or PSP version.

DeJap's fan translation for the win.

If I get a 3ds, now I have 2 games I want for it. Here we go again...

I was surprised at the amount of purists who loathe the DeJap "efforts".  I salute them hard for it, they took a dry script and made me "lol" on a few occasions.

Just got an e-mail from sony.

We believe that an unauthorized person obtained the following of your personal data: address, e-mail, birthday, password, security answer and PSN ID. It is also possible that your CC data (number and expiry date but not the CCV) have been compromised.

How are people supposed to react to this? Everyone should just sue their asses and get a compensation.

I'm sorry to hear. 

I didn't want to take any fucking chances, and changed/cancelled my card the next goddamn day I heard about this crap.  I talked to the MasterCard rep, he said he knows the whole crisis, and they're (he made it sound) pretty lax about getting false changes wiped off the card, given the situation... I just didn't wanna go through the effort. :P

This is a mess, Sony knows it, and if they're not praying now, then they better fucking start.  70+ million people is a lot to piss off, and they better be making a plan to try to make things better ASAP. =/

OH BUT OUR TROPHIES AND SAVE DATA ARE SAFE! Who cares? We can re-acquire those, just be honest about our credit card info, Sony..

You know, it may sound silly at first but when you think about it it's actually way easier to get a new credit card number than it is to reproduce the work that went into those trophies and save data...


This made me laugh...sadly
