I think I might order some chicken tikka masala tonight...

That is rather sad. The man only wanted to ask a question. Granted it was a womans forum, so I spose they were right that it wasn't the best place for him to be. Saying that woman can't be sexist is just moronic.

Reminds me of the case going on right now to consider if a bunch of African-American men who assaulted a kid because white men used to keep black people as slaves, as a hate crime.

Oh...kay?

It's doubtful Lady GaGa agreed to this. Though I muse admit it would be a hell of a lot of fun to watch.

I would only go after trophies if it had some sort of in-game effect. Otherwise I don't really care because I am not a completionist and I am not an online gamer who cares about stats.

I don't like much metal myself, thrash or experimental. However, if the Nine Inch Nails count - some of their albums can be pretty heavy. Also a problem I have with a lot of metal bands is their childish fascination clichés like angels and pain. There is very little subtlety in a lot of these bands, not all,  but a lot.

I wish I had a versatile taste because sometimes I worry that I come off an elitist asshole. I don't mean it, it's just when I don't like a band, I hate them. When I like a band, I love them.


EDIT: Oh, and also Trent Reznor produced an album by someone I love, Saul Williams. His is a mix of spoken-word poetry, rap and heavy metal. A VERY exciting act.

But once again, that whole notion of defending one's homeland from the negative stereotypes perpetuated by media and stuff rings true here.  I'm certainly not above that. 

But I think that whole "hypersexed, clubbing, tanning/overgrooming, 8 hours at the gym" breed of douche can exist everywhere in the world. 

I can confirm in both Scotland and Ireland.

It looks like some sort of bird...Though that's only because of the long beak/snout.
Could be some sort of mammal, though I would go more bird than mammal.

People are working on something to help stop the leak, or at least slow it considerably. - http://www.facebook.com/pages/Plugging-the-Gulf-oil-leak-with-the-works-of-Ayn-Rand/125031037519289

On a side note, not sure if it's in the story there since I didn't read it...she wasn't his wife. She was his ex-wife.

It repeatedly says wife of 24. Not that that makes a difference. That's just what the article says

I watched the first couple of episodes because I love the books so much, I was terribly disappointed.

Every book translated into another media (except perhaps video games) always loses something, because there is simply too much to fit in. However, I wasn't prepared for how much of a disappointment it actually was. They got the character of Darken Rahl all wrong, even his appearance and habits. He looks like a JRPG villain and talks like one too.

I never expected a faithful adaptation but this really takes the cake, my boyfriend won't even read the books now because the TV show is so bad. Which is a shame because the first 5 books or so are VERY good. It had so much potential.

Just read on the main page about the games protagonist not being Marth but a customizable character of your own choosing. Personally that sounds rather cool and I'm on board with it however the whole thing about your support conversations changing depending of what character you create sounds risky.

If it is as simple as Male character is able to support with A B and C and Female character is able to support with D E and F then I don't see many problems arising, but if it goes so far as to say it's changing support conversations based on unit type, gender AND appearance then that sounds like it's just going to be a mess, and it would be hard to generate any meaningful conversation with other characters if his or her backstory is so ambiguous. But maybe thats just me.

Lost Odyssey had those touching little short stories in the form of Dreams. So that gives it a little edge over FFXIII for me.

Otherwise they both are on the same level for me.

Square Enix needs to make an RPG where it continues the format that FF6 through FF9 (or FFX) followed.

Make a fun turn based system that isnt this pseudo MMO shit, let ATB be able to be toggled on or off, let the player control his entire party without bullshit, have a world map or area selection that doesnt suck, have story and characters that matter all the way through, shit..

Is it that hard to make a Final Fantasy game that doesn't suck ass these days? We haven't had a good one in 10 years.

Amen.

Though maybe they have forgotten by now what it means to make a good turn-based game. All their recent best sellers and ones who have had the highest acclaim have come from their action-rpg titles. I guess that is just the direction they are going now.
