On a sort of lighter side of things.  I have to say it is amazing to see the amount of coverage we get.  When Haiti got hit, we got mostly shots after the catastrophe hit.  But Japan, a first world nation, everyone carrying some sort of recording device - we got to see so much more during it.  And it's been amazing to see.  You can tell to some extent Japan is prepared for this, earthquakes being a very real threat to the country (and a general risk of living there); so as much as I'm really sad for the loss, I'm super curious to see how they'll come out of it.  Hell, they took a ton of measures even after the Kobe earthquake in '95.

Tsunami will be bad after such a bad earthquake.

To whatever religion you are - god rest, nevertheless.  I can't imagine how many lives will be lost....

Uhoh, reports of aftershocks to come.  Nature's "fuck you" to humans...!

No offense but... close the lid? I don't know which DS you played it on, but mine is a lite and is can suspend for days... for me that's a much bigger issue on consoles where there is no suspend option.

Another thing I noticed, and I realize I'm being picky, I didn't care for the sounds some of the weapons made in battle. It sounded kinda cartoony and seemed to clash with the epic awesome battle theme.

I love this game though, and the music rocks!

Yeah, I'm surprised about that comment Din haha
Close the lid works, and I found save points pretty abundant at times.  I'm pretty sure there were at least five in the Plains area.

My issue lies with polish.  The music pause between battle and victory music feels almost like it has trouble crossing over to the experience/level-up screen.  The main menu itself feels somewhat clunky, and it's pretty dull to look at (they have a clashing modern meets classical style).  I could have done without constant foot steps too (get's in the way of the music!!).  I find the one-portrait face works for the aesthetics, so that's not the worst of it.  The field sprites still bother me; they're way too inconsistent for my liking.  Stocke has a mouth (no one else seems to), Rosch is gigantic, and Aht just looks weird.  The lack of frame-rate really bogs the overall look, and I hate how it's 4-directional characters when most areas contain diagonal paths.

And fuck it.  Stock is 25 at least, not 19.  Same with Rosch, I don't feel or look older than the man.

Nitpicking aside, the game is really wonderful.  I hate *always* being outnumbered in battle (its a bit of a drag), but retains a clever story and it's great to be curious about what will happen next in either timeline (they're both exciting to some extent).

Brutal thing that happened Pacioretti... you could actually hear the hurt.  Hope he gets well, to whatever extent you can from a neck injury....  Amazing Chara got off as light as he did, but I guess it was just a good hit in the wrong spot...
For anyone who missed it.

Go Leafs...you fucken shitty ass team...

Howl's Moving Castle.  It might be my third favorite from Studio Ghibli after Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke.  I watched Grandma's Boy again too:)

I may have to start watching new movies soon:/  I just keep watching old favorites over and over.

I loved Howl's Moving Castle - very sweet (the story went by my head at first and the ending was super rushed; but I love it a lot).

Still playing Atelier Iris Eternal Mana and Radiant Historia. I must say I'm enjoying Atelier Iris more....but both are very good games.

I loved that game till the end; then I realized it for what it kinda is...
One annoying thing that bothered me was the female party members had better quality portraits than the men... then again, it's kinda funny.
Oh!  A warning!  There is some sort of glitch in the end credits!!  I can't remember what it is, but I do hear it is avoidable so you can actually watch the full credits (GameFaqs it, it has something to do with the voices I think).

The game was a commercial failure with bad reviews

Yeah, I was gonna throw that in too.  I was more curious about the title than anything though.
7434  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Squeenix turned down licensing offer for Blood of Bahamut. on: March 09, 2011, 10:24:00 AM
What are the issues behind letting another company license something?  I sincerely hope there are some - otherwise this is a damned shame.

I wish they had more than one dialogue image for each characrer though. Considering how much dialogue there is and how much space they take up, this was a pretty irritating oversight to me.
My biggest problem with the game.

So much dialogue and varying emotions, but characters only show one facial expression throughout. WTF Atlus!?

I find Stocke's face pretty consistent. =P
But yeah, even if they changed the 40x40 pixel range of their face only.
I'm not too bothered by it though... a history of doing without is suppose does that to me.

1) some loved one takes pity and cooks your favorite meal


You're right. I do take pity on you.

What should I cook for you then?

Well, in the case of a cold (which it was), I couldn't smell a damned thing.  You could have served me anything.  So "this" will do:

Any way you can just hit the "code" button and make the colour/quote combo go into effect?
7438  Site Related & More / RPGFan: The Boards / Re: So anyway... on: March 09, 2011, 01:04:14 AM
Ah. You guys have some crazy names on here.

I just used my real name, like Starmongoose did

That was a really good joke.

The Tom Hanks Thanks made my night

OI!!!  SDM!  Put em back up!  They were nice pics of you doing everything but what I am.... having fun. =(

I was sick as a dog and had to stay up late doing bullshit project.  I think the under of my right eye is a bit wet (so tired you tear up when you yawn...that and I was pissed being sick and working x(((  )

My hair still looked decent all things considered.... There are two good things when you're sick:
1) some loved one takes pity and cooks your favorite meal
2) a nice hot shower.

Hey, Dice - you found Keyser Söze?  That's great!  Did he fall under the table again, or was he between the couch cushions?

That bastard?  He was taking public transit!  Said, y'know, "w'sup", and he was all "s'good".

Son of a...

I know... I know.  The cajones on him, huh?

Radiant Historia is finally starting to pick up....  I hate early game shit... it's all tutorials and crappy skills that don't demonstrate that awesome battle system potential.  More "secrets" piling up and no one to explain them yet.  I have gripes with the shitty transitions in and out of battle (they're very sudden).  And one thing that's gonna irk on me is the constant out-numbering of enemies to allies.  I don't think I've had a battle with the same amount of enemies as I've had allies [3].  But it's a great and quick battle system, and I love planning it through effectively.  Finally did a more "creative" sidequest too, Rosch and Sonja, and some time skipping in the name of love.  Awwww. *siiigh* (I may say fuck and shit a lot.... and I may make nasty remarks about plenty of things... but deep down a romance still tugs at my heart).
