I got a job! I give morphine to people about to kick the bucket!

Question.

Are they already about to die BEFORE you give them the morphine?

Post away Jubby, I just made the thread to discuss the topic in general.


I do kinda of disagree, just a little bit though. I don't think we should pretend there isn't a difference between men and women. Perhaps not on their on, but certainly in the way a society may treat them. If you are writing a female character who is filling a traditionally male role, the experiences she would have along the way (facing hardships or perhaps forming strong bonds with other females in her role) should shape who she is fundamentally as a person.

The same goes for writing men who go against their own gender role, unfortunately it doesn't happen much in games outside of Persona games because the gamer market still caters primerally to the straight male - who are (mostly) still afraid of anything less than a macho man.

Gotta agree with the female touch. Espcially since I suck at distinguishing voices :P I'm like "who is talking now?" most of the time and having a female at least let's me know for certain who 1 of the 4 are. I'm getting better though. I can tell who John is most of the time :P

Obi-Wan, Obi-Wan, Obi-Wan

What's your point? Every character in a story can be broken down into certain archetypes, it's how stories are structured and there's not a lot of variation when you get down to it. The important part was players connected with Alys and cared about her when she eventually died.


And I always assumed "eight stroke warrior" meant she could fell any enemy in eight strokes or less.


The majority of my criticisims, however, are with the hall of fail. Princess Peach? Really? She's had her own game where she's gone off and been the hero on the DS,

From what I remember her fighting ability revolved around her crying and having hissy fits. It wasn't really a point in the games favour that Peach is basically just an over-emotional woman who has SEVERE mood swings.

I'm so happy.  All B's and up on my semester... surprising, since I slacked so much by the end, and studied so little for exams.

I also just bought an artbook I've BEEN DYING FOR, FOR YEARS on sale, 40% off on eBay (bleh, but...) within 10 MINUTES of the sale ending.  I pissed off the seller previously, so I had to register real fucking fast with a different e-mail.  Got it, within one minute of the sale being over.  I went and hugged my dog.  ..... this is excitement in my life.... fuck...

Go, Dice! :D I told ya you had nothing to worry about. *hug*

i will never ever knowingly date a bi girl. everyone i dated eventually dumped me for a guy. do you know how much that hurts >_<

I actually agree. I am very apprehensive about dating bi guys because being dumped for a girl is so, so much worse than being dumped for another guy. I couldn't tell you why though, it just is.

I don't care really, but it is an observation. I still love the game regardless.

I agree, every single female in this is wearing FAR to less. Especially sheeva who I think EVERYONE would appreciate her being a bit more covered up.

Saw this on the front page this morning and was pleasantly surprised. Just remembering Alys from Phantasy Star 4 made me want to play it again. She was at least the main character for a little while, so I think that counts enough for her to be on the list :P


What did everyone else think? Any one you think might be missing?

Also, I didn't think Yuzu was THAT bad. Not that I can think of anyone else to replace her at the moment xD

Arrange Pokemon battle with Turnbasedude - discover your boyfriend started a new save file.

Decide to have a match of Mortal Kombat to make up for it - boyfriend informs me we don't have Xbox live.


Kill boyfriend.

Top 5 Things the Creep me out:


1. Clowns. I hate, hate, HATE them so much.
2. Bugs, all of them. Especially the ones in that Cracked article that Dice linked.
3. Needles. they are sharp and pointy and it's purpose is to stab you, what's to like?
4. Cotton wool. BLERHGHH.
5. Under the bed. We all know the thing that wants to eat you lives under there.

So what's up with some of the recent changes to youtube?  Am I missing something?  Two things I've noticed recently that I haven't been able to fix:

-The end screen (that shows related videos and such after a playback is finished) is showing up a lot earlier.  In some cases, it completely obscures the last 5-7 seconds of a video

-There doesn't seem to be any "loading" anymore and it looks to be just streaming.  The loading bar is completely red immediately in many videos instead of the normal gray to red as the video loads.  Definitely a change to the worse if it's un-fixable.

That's not the case at all for me

Good move, Yoda! Reverse psychology! Wait, does it still work if someone points it out?

Just bought the game today (for 38), I got the premium edition so I have on my bracer badge and I'm turning it on for the first time! :D
