Funny thing that I did as a child and not sure why, or even if I noticed I did it - on my mothers side my grandfathers were Papa (My mothers father, my mothers step father and my great grandfather). While on my Dad's side, it was Grandpa. All my grandmothers were just "Gran" though.

My aunts name is Janet, but I guess I found that hard to say as a kid, so I call her "Aunt Net" to this day.

Weirdly, my little cousin calls my father "Uncle Piko". His name is Fraser. WE HAVE NO IDEA WHERE THAT CAME FROM.

Not sure if you are serious or not. You collect coins with the signs of the Zodiac on it for a weird bird-lady. That chest had the Cancer coin.


I did do a double take the first time I opened that chest though.

Since I haven't posted since January or so and probably won't again for some time I thought I'd just quote Nallo from *cough* numerous pages back.

*obligatory annual post*



:P

Just remember I'm watching you...

Do I have to get my magnifying glass out? I cannot stand this mystery .

We are good people, so bannings are painfully infrequent. Nothing like a good banning.
2812  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What do you think of Spoony's Final Fantasy Reviews? on: July 21, 2011, 11:20:12 AM
I dislike Spoony. As an Internet personality I just find him grating. I also actually have issue with calling what he does "reviewing" but maybe that's just me. While I find people like the Nostalgia Critic and Yahtzee entertaining, I am not willing to trust their opinion. Afterall, they aren't actually giving you their real opinion. They are characters - larger than life versions of themselves. And since their ego's are blown out of proportion, so are their opinions. While they might not like something, they may not hate it as much as their videos would lead you to believe.

So, to answer the question, I don't think very much of his Final Fantasy videos.


(As a note, I know both Yahtzee and Spoony do written reviews that are not fuelled by the persona they have cultivated, and are generally much better ways to gauge their own personal opinion on a game.)

I know this only recently reached critical mass in America, but I've been hearing about this for so long now I think my ears are going to fall off.

Awesome for those who havn't already bought it! (I have. And I have the Bracer badge to prove it. :P)

I had no problem except for the battle theme. It was really grating and just not a good decision on their part.

I used to think trutles were like Hermit crabs, and they just wandered into a shell when they were babies and grew inside of it.

Haha, oh yeah. We still haven't set you straight about that. If you pardon the pun.
2819  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The word: gameplay on: July 14, 2011, 05:00:05 PM
Oh look, it's people telling you how to think and speak again! This person would be less upset if we made up a word like "mangangulus" to replace the word gameplay.

Oh, the graphics weren't very good but the mangangulus was fantastic!

It's called gameplay because that's the way the game plays. It is not The Game. The Game is the entire package.

The writer may have a point about it not following the usual rules of the English language, but so what? Plenty of people throughout history have hated certain words because they view them as silly/inferior/barbarous. Believe it or not using words such as "Lengthy", "Reliable", "Talented", "Influential" and "Tremendous" all received flak from many English "experts" such as novelists, writers, poets and other academics. People obviously got over THAT.

No one is confused. People may use it wrongly, but fuck them. There are people who get the meaning of a word way off with everything. The person who told the dev that the explosion was bad gameplay was clearly a moron. The problem here isn't with words, it is with stupid people who refuse to use the word correctly. My, we sure do love making a big deal out of nothing. Don't we. :P
