I'd care more about a chance of Jessie getting revived than Aeris.

I fail to see how either of those things relate to your poop eating habits.

For reals though, Ive been thinking about bring the Quiz back in some form, but I'm not sure how yet. The old way was too hectic and as Annubis said, lack of interest. Some quizes had only one person show up and thus they won by default - I was putting in a lot of work for little pay out, but I don't blame them for not turning up - the whole premise was too obtuse to take part in easily. Ideally I'd like perhaps a Podcast Gameshow type thing. That struggles with participation though, how many people could I get to feasibly do that, and also show up on time, also connection issues, blah blah. Not to mention people who just don't like being in the spotlight. It's an idea I've thought about for a while, but I don't know what the interest would be like. All I know is the old way of doing things was the Wild Wild West of quizzes.

As for Wild Arms 2 - I might play that on my Let's Play channel instead.

I'm not doing a 100% run, but I mostly mean that some of the cooler accessories are impossible to get. A simple mistake in chapter 1 locks you out of a great accessory in chapter 5 - that kinda thing. It's a little stressful.

@Arvis: Yeah - maybe this will be the game where i get all the Blue Bullets!

@Dice: Songstress IS good...for a couple of abilities. The rest feel like mostly filler. This game does stress me the hell out though, I don't necessarily WANT a 100% run, but so much shit is lost if you don't do everything EXACTLY right at just the right time. I've just taken the talk to everyone all the time approach.

STARMONGOOSE IS TOO BEAUTIFUL AND WONDERFUL AND MAKES EVERYONE ELSE LOOK BAD BY COMPARISON.

No ones done anything to incite my wrath, don't worry bout it.

I just think there are better ways to go about it - it has potential for good discussion, but when we start dishing out attacks on peoples character for just having a different opinion to us, then we aren't doing ourselves justice or putting up arguments worth discussing.

And therein lies a subtopic- either not liking something, or "closet liking" something because of an insufferable fanbase.  There are plenty of things I like but am hesitant to admit to liking because I don't want to be labeled as "Oh, you're one of them."  That's not fair.  

I'm sure I've recycled that topic several times over the years.  

We all know you play those boobie games, Neal. Everyone knows, it's okay - we love you anyway.

It's not worth taking a hardline stance on it right now, but I'm keeping my eye on this thread.

Let's all remember having an unpopular opinion doesn't give you the right to call people who share the popular opinion dumb/childish etc.

I mean, a little bit of my soul dies every time you guys call FFIX bad, but I don't get salty about it.

I just hover my mouse over the "Ban this user" button for a few seconds until the feeling passes.

This is a little too negative for my tastes, so I'm not gonna join in on my opinions of games that are popular for reasons I don't understand. I just had a little thought while scrolling through Aeolus's comment and felt like sharing it.

Regarding the enemy variety in FFX, I agree you see the same enemy repeatedly, but I think it's an interesting subject regarding game design and clarity through design choices.

Most RPGs do it to some extent, if the enemy is red they usually absorb fire and are weak to water/ice (Does not apply to SMT), but almost every enemy in FFX has a clear weakness and you can understand that weakness just through looking at it and taking the appropriate action. If it's a bee or a small bird, let Wakka throw a ball at it, if it's a flan or an elemental let Lulu throw magic at it, if it's scaly or has a shell, let Auron hit it. If it's fucking huge let Yuna summon an Aeon. You get that rundown at Besaid at the start of the game and it remains true for the entire thing, and it's kinda cool in my opinion. How many enemies in FF7,8,9 etc actually felt like they HAD weaknesses at all? Most random encounters took roughly the same damage from all sources apart from some exceptions.

Not important, just thought I would share a little thought - continue. :P

As detailed in my Let's Play thread I'm a little lost for what to do. In the meantime I've decided to replay FFX2 since that game is pretty much sheer fun.

I like to spice up the games I replay though, so I've decided to randomly allocate dresspheres to the characters to give battles a bit more stratagy.

There are 16 jobs and 3 characters, so there was 1 job leftover. The last job picked got given to them all.

Yuna

Lady Luck
Songstress
Alchemist
Mascot
Gun Mage
Psychic
Floral Fallel

Rikku
Dark Knight
Black Mage
Gunner
White Mage
Trainer
Psychic
Machina Maw

Paine
Warrior
Festivalist
Thief
Samurai
Berserker
Psychic
Full Throttle


Yuna got shafted a lil bit - she's gonna be a Songstress for a looong time.

If anyone is wondering where the hell the next episode is, my boyfriend is having to use his computer a lot for his own personal projects right now and I don't wanna take it away from him til he is done.

How would people feel about a short retro RPG that I can run from my laptop for a couple of weeks until he is done and then can return to Fire Emblem? Or would we just rather wait it out.

My boyfriend grew up in Munich and told me amazing tales of all the stuff available to kids while he was growing up. They even had a mini-town for a week that was run by the kids and they were given the opportunity to set up their own business and trade using fake currency.

Absolutely nothing like that in available for kids in the UK - no events, no nothing.

Yeah, not drinking away your calories is a really good easy option to lose weight. Starbucks stuff, while I've never been a coffee person, some of their stuff takes up more than half my entire days calories.

I only drink water, or water with squash in it (apparently not popular in america but its basically a concentrate that you add a tiny drop of water too and it changes it into low calorie fruit juice).

Also, Ironmage, while I'm not super into anime, but I do share your habit of watching something while doing cardio. I watch Let's Plays and basically tell my legs to go on auto pilot. I get about 10 hours of cardio in a week this way.

Well, there is a reason non-moderators can't delete their own posts these days. It was all thanks to one dude.

She was threatening to spam our forums with porn or something if I remember correctly during one of her hissy fits. :P

It has been a while.

Oh, I also edited out his stream URL. I feel like he still wins in the end if he gets to keep it around.
