That was a weird punishment... I don't know how I feel about it though (something about it sounds really medieval too; today you usually just pay some crappy find and move on). 

I agree the 11 year old was wrong -- but she's fucken 11, kids do crazy stupid shit when they're kids.  And it was against a 3 year old; how much do they really know or care about what's going on with their hair really??
Well, you have to show kids HOW and WHY hat they did was wrong, not just that it was wrong.

What better way for them to understand than having what they did done to them?

I cost my dad a LOT of money this year.... a fine can work as punishment enough, at least when you're that age to "understand the value of money" and all that shizz.

I don't think I'd be upset with a haircut punishment... just I think it's a weird revenge punishment for something that doesn't feel like too big a deal in the first place. 

The entire thing feels like much ado about nothing since I'm in more of a "it's hair -- it grows back" angle of thinking.  It's not like the mum at first raised a stink either, she "reluctantly agreed", but nothing more.  I think mum and me are looking at this as a "wtf" since it's not very standard practice. 

I don't like the judge pulling this though:
"I'm going to give you this option: I will cut that by 150 hours if you want to cut her hair right now," Johansen said in court."

Kind of weird to bargain a sentencing through reprisal hair cutting.  Again, it just sounds medieval.
Quite frankly, a smack on the ass was enough for me to feel sorry; courts take long enough to settle matters as is.

I'm not for or against what happened otherwise -- it's just weird.

Now I remember that it has been more or less 2 years since I read in Siliconera about those remakes of FFV and VI for the 3DS. Wonder if that is still a thing.

DS limitations probably stopped it for the time being. With the 3DS I'm sure they're re-evaluating it.

Fucking hope so.... we got fed like 4 versions of FF4 in the current/previous gen.

Which reminds me, was Toy Story reallllyy that great??  I liked enough, but could never love those flicks.

Wow, IIRC and between Famitsu's grade, that's a new high for the series.

Please NISA. I know I ignored the Arland series (save Totori, which I traded in a week later), but please consider this series!

Curious statement.
Thoughts?

(I say it's accurate, though FFIX is pretty high up there to me too).

But I will say FF7 was the last game that made me feel like this:

(granted, it was my first big "3d" game, so that probably turned up it's awesome to 11).

If that counts as BAD PSX 2D, I can't imagine what's good, so yeah, I'm shenrious. :)

I can see his point, they don't have a lot of frames of animation, especially compared to the sprites in the two Breath of Fire games which are beautfiully smooth.

The standing animation looked fine, they sort of bobbed on the spot or whatever, and it's to a scale that not even BoF hit unless it was for bosses (SF2 has a pretty big character roster).  Given the budget and the fact it tried to work with some dynamic (the sliding around), not even BoF did that (BoF3 was two directions, front and back, then mirrored to hit the opposite angle, and BoF4 was just everyone "facing off" in one direction -- and also, they're an exception of high quality 2D sprite work, not the standard... come to think of it, has SquareSoft ever done outstanding 2D work??).

Wow, am I the only one who likes the big-sprite battles?

Dice-  isn't Tri-Ace working on some 3DS dungeon crawler? which reminds me, I still need to play Resonance of Fate.

They did.  And they did a PSP game.  Both of which were less than stellar which is really disappointing for a bias fan, such as myself, to hear.

I'm hoping a lack of announcements right now means they're doing something for the PS360.

SaGa Frontiet II: though the sprites aren't all that great.

Are you mad???  Did you forget about the "HD battles"?

Anyone been playing Pokemon Conquest?

Need opinions, cause I wanna play it.

I want it too.  The peeps on the Tales forum are loving it, but they're poke-tarded over there more than I've ever been.

Timestalkers has an awesome overworld.... but it's the weirdest fucking game ever.

Breath of Fire III -- Commencing with the "Balio & Sunder Saga".  Nina has to have the cutest sprite ever.  But in general, the 2D spritework is stunning.  I know this is nothing far-fetched, but I wonder why the older Nina art and older Nina sprite are so disgustingly different (like, seriously, she loses that cuteness when she's older and just looks stupid).

I'm jealous; I want to shave my head because I think the shaolin monk look would actually be a decent appearance for me. Wife absolutely does not want it to happen though. XP She lets me pass with so much crap I can't refuse the few small things she insists on.

Boyfriend likes long hair... so do I, but goddamn it gets annoying when it gets caught on things.  That, and the average person loses like 100 hairs a day, it's annoying to string off long ass hairs.

Answering Dev Art messages, I get a PM... it says "Hey".  WTF, that's it... 'HEY'.  Goddamn people.  There's 7 billion people on this planet, I guess all of them can't say "unique" or interesting things -- but this is less than half-assed.  I hate that even on YouTube comments, stuff like "OMG so AWESOME", or "Cool".  There ya go... way to contribute.



Work today.  Ramen dinner later at this awesome joint in Toronto.  The fucking happiness that is after a shitty fucking weekend shift at Gamestop.

Yeah -- the show is really suffering from how rushed it is.  You never got a chance to really sit in with how hard it would hit an *avatar* to lose her bending (it came back no more than five minutes later!).  And she technically got it back in a fan-service moment because she was sad. D: 
An event that major I think would sit better and more strongly if she lost it at least for a full episode.  Her being able to reverse seal felt entirely too convenient and I felt that the Benders vs. Non-Benders theme got dropped all too swiftly and without any real resolution for such a major plot point.
I didn't feel that Dante Brasco really fit the role or did too much, but it was good to see the Fire Bending monarch's lineage living on in General Iroh.

It was a good episode, but certainly lacked the punch at the end in everything but that final "glowing" moment for Korra when everything for her got back to normal.  But, and I think most of all, major kudos to Tarlok.  And also, I'm actually kinda glad Korra didn't need an Avatar state to finish her battle over Amon. Definitely nice to have it saved for the "next threat".

I can only wonder what the next season will bring up (and pray on some huge ass miracle they extend it to 24 episodes...but...well, one can dream).


PS:  Did Iroh abandon his fleet?

Truthfully I wasn't even drunk, but that's what I told my boyfriend.

The entire boxset of Touched by an Angel.

That's the most awesome excuse.

Omg... the smile that hit my face when I saw that. xD
