Playing my first ever Suikoden game, the very first one. Gotta say, I'm enjoying it a lot. I've recruited about 50 of the 108 Stars of Destiny (I think that's what they are called) so I don't know if that means I'm approaching the halfway mark or not.

Grinding faeries for bits of pottery is probably the weirdest part of this.

"What's the point of killing all these grunts if i'm not getting experience points from them?" My favourite part of episode 8.

Moss from IT Crowd.

Garth Marenghi.

Oh! Garth Marenghi! Totally, such a weird show.

Ummm... what?

No, no, how about this:

"Grinding was first witnessed among youth starting around the late 80s as an acceptable form of public foreplay. Grinding became increasingly popular throughout the 90s and early 00s as it became more socially acceptable, and in many cases, required at certain types of music-related social gatherings, such as raves. The most common outcome of grinding, is, of course, intercourse. One should take care before grinding that one has the proper protection, in case intercourse ensues."

Of course, you will also want to be protected from Random Encounters in this case, especially when it results in a "Surprise attack".

Just watched Monsters vs Aliens, I know, ages old, but I was put off by all the "meh" reviews.

I enjoyed it though, my Insectosaurus plush is on its way!

It's hard having an uncontrollable love for cute things when you are a guy :(

Haha, speaking of psycho ex's makes me think of a fact!
I give stupid nicknames to ex-girlfriends to use when referring to them with friends or whoever.  I guess it's a coping mechanism.  It somehow helps me get over the whole thing if I never say their real name out loud again.  Here's a few!

- Psycho C  (yeah not very original, but that was my first)
- Coolbreeze
- Little Miss. Rochester
- Sister Christian (my personal fav, Night Ranger anyone? lol)

I have a bad habit of just referring to people by stand out features in general, I think it happened because as I was growing up I had about three friends called Sarah, a cousin called Sarah and a next door neighbor called Sarah. I got fed up with having to further explain which Sarah I was talking about.

"I saw Sarah the other day..."

"-Sarah? Sarah who?"

"My friend Sarah."

"Which one?"

"The ginger one!"

Thus everyone has now become "Little John", "Ginger Sarah", "Tall Emma","Lauren, you know, the one with the weird teeth."

To fry eggs with.

I would say, The Doctor (Doctor Who) or Blackadder (Blackadder) 

I admit, I don't watch  a lot of television.

No! NOooooo. The memories. The nightmares. They just stopped. Why, Lard, why?

*Hands in the air*


Note: I hope this is a reference to what I think it is, otherwise you have no idea what I'm talking about.

You are correct, though I can't think of any other kind of reference it could be about :P

Kim's review of it really makes me want it, it seems right up my alley.

There is no Europe date announced as far as I can see, so I might just import it if no information comes up in the next month or so.
4151  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Why are popular RPGs given bad reviews? on: August 26, 2010, 12:04:27 AM
Well, if only people who were familiar with the franchises reviewed it, they wouldn't be able to give opinions that are unbiased because of an infatuation with the subject matter. There are a lot of dud Final Fantasies that get fantastic reviews because the reviewer was too intimate with the franchise and gave it an unfair score because of past loves with earlier titles.

Just because someone is unfamiliar with the franchise doesn't mean their opinion doesn't matter, they might end up loving the game and giving comparisons and commonalities to other games the original niche fanbase might not be familiar of, and thus bringing a whole new bunch of people to the series.

Even if they say they hate it because it is of a certain genre, they are obviously not the sort of person you should be paying attention too because they are not giving it a fair review regardless. If they point out tired or ludicrous situations that JRPGs often find themselves in, or find the portrayal of epic battles unrealistic, these are fair comments but they can be just as easily disregarded by someone because they actually like that stuff.

I would also like to know what the best ones are. The series has always interested me and I would like to give it a go, but I don't want the first one I play to be the worst one and have its name forever haunting the series for me.
4153  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Best RPG of the decade on: August 25, 2010, 10:16:35 PM
Worst of the decade:
Mass Effect

Woa...dude. You got balls.

Stupid balls, but they are big stupid balls.

I've never really understood the whole exploration part that people seem to enjoy in video games, Prime Mover,or rather, I just have never 'got' it. My idea of exploration is going to the next dungeon seeing the exit, but noticing there are a couple paths left unexplored, which might hold some awesome treasure, or an extra scene.

When I'm thrust into a sort of open-world enviroment, I feel a tad disorientated. I need a sense of direction, and I hate the thought of the dungeon just getting deeper and deeper while it's been about 4 hours since I last saw some story.

I'm not knocking those kinds of games, I'm just saying, totally not my thing. :D

Stuff like Cross Edge are beyond terrible, they're patronages to satan.

This is why God will lose the war, he is totally behind the times man. Satan is  smart enough to modernize and find new to ways create evil. I know bad voice acting is far more plentiful than goat sacrifices nowadays!
4155  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: FFXIV Thread on: August 25, 2010, 07:24:37 PM

I have never seen a game get their audience so wrong before.

This doesn't look like it's going to be the game that introduces me into the wonderful world of MMO's
