Yeah Yoda what DOES your penis look like.

(secretly I'd rather see Yorda's penis)

((Ico wasn't the only one with superfluous horns))

Mesh, I heart you.

Anyways.  Yoda.  Um.  I imagine small and green.  I dunno, what Verne Troyer look like in green body paint and naked?

I'd wanna see George Clooney's or Clive Owen's penis...because secretly I think it's everything I'd hope it to be. I guess.

It doesn't bother me mainly because I like it when games show something more realistic.  People get hurt, people have sex.  When it comes to games though, the "sexual" aspect and display of women as sexual objects is what gets to me.

I'm not trying to sound like a bra-burning feminist; but sometimes its so blatant it makes me dumb.

JRPGs love showing either double-F Cups in clothes a size too small; or, even worse, kid-characters with their asses to the main guy (then they get up flustered, like we've seen a BAZILLION times before).  Funny how these women get naked so often, but are always flustered about it.  Oh wait, that's "cute" over there.  They're all virgins too.  I liked the "idea" of Samus before she opened up her trap for some of the melodrama in Metroid Other M (she still kicked ass though).  FF13 may have sucked, but you can't help but love Lightning for not being typical.

Western Games like this raw woman aspect; she's sexy, strong, speaks her mind - but too often they're not independent enough to stand out more.  JRPGs are a bit better at this, IMO, but not by much. They're strong, but sometimes too key to the male's love interest to ever step away.  I loved Joanna Dark though (before her red-head makeover)...can't say I know many other leading-like ladies.

Violence to me is just a part of the action.

Did I veer off the topic?

Haha!!  I've got that exact rationale TOO!!  I think we've all said a dumb thing or two outloud, maybe didn't mean it, or too harsh, or whatever.  I like texting that since it gives me...a more planned out argument.  I hate saying stuff out of an emotional situation.  I'm girly, but I try not to fall into those california-dramas that teen-reality shows display (Jersey Shore makes my head hurt haha)

Watched Scott Pilgrim last night. I thought it was damn creative and a lot of fun. I still don''t like Cera much, as he just plays himself in every role, but it didn't hurt the movie.
I loved all the video game references. I can totally see how this might not appeal to a good chunk of the population, but It's still sad that it did so poorly. It has future cult classic written all over it.
I almost think knives was hotter than Ramona, though. She was cute as hell. Then again, you could tell that Mary Elizabeth Winstead was brought down a level for this movie. In normal pics of her she is quite attractive.

Knives is real pretty...though I hated the short cut.  But Ramona's more hollywood look (er, rather non-punk look, seen here, is stunning).  Look up Knives on IMDb, too...amazing shots of her in a dress there.

One thing that REALLY disappointed me was that (I think someone mentioned, I'm about to step out so I can't go searching) the stupid Twilight spoof movie beat Pilgrim at the box office.

I actually really don't like these 8 bit throw backs...  they feel like too much of an excuse to create some cute than make anything of great quality or even much depth.  Credit to them when they're good, but they're not my style.
8602  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tactics Ogre on: November 19, 2010, 01:50:15 PM
Release date announced for February 15th and it looks like we're getting the cards afterall!

Turnbaseddude:  Goddamn, I'm sorry to hear that.  I really am.  Bully is absolutely atrocious, yet difficult to get rid of despite whatever mediators are out in the school yards or whoever is around to help.  I've personally had periods where I felt alone myself, every so often it comes back - but I know I have a great community here to really hear things out on my geek and even more modern day interests.  I've also been fortunate to have a few good people who I can run my mouth about whatever and they still act or seem interested - still, I hate how they're in small numbers and I hate myself for never jumping at the opportunity in college when eavesdropping on some students talking about games where I could have added some decent conversation.  I love this place to yak about my gaming interests, and voice on other things.  I love the internet/networks/forums for allowing me to talk about interests worldwide if less so locally. Haha

I was somewhat different in Grade School, I had a few friends and we had fun.  When I switched school, I spent recess alone my first year.  I was 7 years old and went to the teacher sad one day saying "Miss.. I don't have any friends" haha  But she was a good match-maker, some of the girls I tagged with are still friends of mine today (and we still play HOUSE and DOLLS! ....jk).  After that I was able to tap into my more social side and had some fun and got a bigger friend base.  But still, I had my period where I ignored people, and I just didn't care.  They didn't interest me, or what they were doing didn't matter.  Some period in highschool I became a huge recluse and realized one night I put off my friends for games.  I've never done it since.

I have trouble with the balance sometimes.  And now in Uni, I see my friends on holidays only mostly.  I don't care.  I feel extremely happy and fortunate that now I'm good with both areas.  I can handle and enjoy my time alone and with friends.  Maybe socializing is innate, but I don't think I'll ever be able to perfect how I am and I've taken some weird influences on the way.

StarMongoose:  I don't know to say this without sounding like a dope, but I never realized you were gay (sorry if you've mentioned it before).  I love it though, we actually something in common with our guys the... I think I've out-argued my boyfriend on text than in real life... It's more comfortable for me...I get to be less angry sounding over texts.  =S  When I started talking to him, it was informally over texts and that's how he asked me out (supposed to be a "friend thing" at first). 

Hard to deny that online/texting or whatever digital media hasn't changed my life in some way.

PS: thanks for all the kudos too from a few of you guys... I'm extremely surprised, but real flattered..!

I'm personally really happy this got a topic to stand alone amongst everything - it deserves it!

I want a "throw back" to mid ps2 level graphics so games can be made in a reasonable amount of time with a reasonable budget again.

I hear developers are pretty scared to make world maps (they're effing huge)... I thought Vesperia pulled it off well.  I don't understand what's so hard - I'm surprised the market is so "dried up".

Do players stop attacking if the enemy they were targetting died?  I'm pretty sure many of my battles went on an extra turn (accumulating a ton of turns - this matters to me, life is short).
8607  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Linear and simple RPGs on: November 18, 2010, 11:36:37 PM
oh yeah FF13
that one is supposedly "linear and simple" to most people

I'm afraid he already has it and doesn't care for it much. There were some parts that were too complicated for him, and Chapter 11 wasn't very fun (I loved CH.11, personally, but I know my brother hated it. It was Chapter 12 and 13 that stopped me cold).

I was gonna say it too...then I remembered the redundant weapon-building system the game had

Last Ranker is the spiritual successor to BoF...

Now I'm listening. *wag tail*

I'd give up a boob to do what Jean Luc Picard does.
8609  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Linear and simple RPGs on: November 18, 2010, 10:13:36 PM
What about the Breath of Fire series?

Not next gen but still ficken awesome.

Dice did you know your new avatar is incredibly distracting?

and yes i fall into the loney crowd. especially M-F since i work 2nd and sometimes 3rd shift. the only time id say im not loney is around holidays since i get together with family. weekends used to be an unloney time for me until various vagina's started taking my brothers and male friends away from me....*rage* and they have the nerve to be jealous of me? pfft! also online i tend to be more aggressive and competative. the offline me is more shy and timid. the online me is more like ol yellow eyes ala persona 4.

Distracting how?? =(

I gotta add, I know how you feel.  I worked a M-F, 9-5-er but had about 3 hours of busing that cost me almost my first hour's pay (from sub-urb to Toronto).  I'd be home by like 7PM, and have to go to bed a few hours after that or be dead tired the next day.  I saw two people, some days, and my family.  I worked weekends, so partying wasn't much of an option.  THe pay was good then, but to do it all again...

I liked your persona a la Persona analysis.  I' not sure how you see me as, but I'm pretty two-faced.  Err, sometimes I'm quiet and calm, and sometimes I'm nut and cussing a lot.  I contribute it to...maybe I just don't know how to act?
