So, as I'm sure a lot of you have heard, the Interview (a movie about being sent to murder Kim Jung-Un) with Seth Rogan and James Franco just got pulled from theatres because of pressure from a few whack-jobs and assholes.  I probably would have gone to see it on Christmas had it actually come out, though I doubt it was any good.  But still, this kind of film being yanked from cinemas bothers me in some fundamental ways. 
Agreed, this whole situation seems so wrong. Granted the idea of the movie itself is fucked up, but to let a bunch of nutjobs with access to the internet make lame threats and force this is ridiculous.

So I had my 4th date last night and we finally made out. It was my first time doing that, I'm as giddy as a schoolgirl.

Also I think I'm in love, damn arent I a cheesy person.


Well done, Holy!!
Any image using Sophia Bush is an A++ in my book. Thank you kindly ma'am.

@Maxx: Never heard of Romancing SaGa: Minstrel's Song and Emperors SaGa? They came out after Unlimited.
I never heard of emperors saga myself, but romancing saga is quite good in my opinion. Kicking myself for having lost the copy of it I had...

Slow down there Cyrano, You're not in love, not after 4 dates.  (and even if by some horrible mishap you are, don't you dare breathe a word of it to anyone who might know that girl).

That kind of thinking is going to scare her off

If you're still in high school, sure. Afterward people don't get so caught up in the "rules" of romance, and if they do they're not worth anyone's time.

Honestly, you're allowed to be in love with someone the moment you lay eyes on them if they really illicit that kind of reaction. People think love is this finite resource that needs to be buried deep until you find "The One," when the truth of the matter is life can always use more love.

I see what you're saying, but A) telling a woman that you're in love with her without being 100% certain of it being reciprocated is relationship death and B) love at first sight is not a real thing, when you don't actually know someone it's just lust (not that there's anything wrong with that).
Glassjawsh is right, even if the relationship has some serious potential, saying that will inevitably ruin the entire thing if it's not how she feels. It's like farting in a public place...if no one laughs, you just left the whole room feeling like shit.

Damnit, you aren't supposed to have a lovelife and love videogames. It's unnatural!

Good luck to you though.

2 years in radioshack, wasn't that horrific aside from shitty pay. I usually spent most days fixing people's issues and repairing store problems. Pretty much did what I want there honestly, as long as I got stuff done. It really depends on how ass-kissy your boss is to corporate, how ass kissy your coworkers are, and how well liked you are in store. I used to get patrons always contacting the store looking for me because I was so helpful, and even got a full commendation by the district for positive feedback from customers. No job sucks when your coworkers and boss like you.

How is it you and I argue so frequently? You rarely have a different opinion from me.

The memory for the vita, I admit, is horribly pricey. Even when it's on sale, a high end memory card can run as much as the system still. Sony should really look into that.

I'm curious about the Imperial SaGa game, can someone tell me if it's going to have tech sparking or are you gonna have to buy some silly card to give you a new move every time? I'm betting the info is lacking still, but I figured I'd ask.

Idk, kinda happy to see stuff on the vita personally. Makes it more than just my ps4 control/display when in my living room (or bathroom, cough cough). I think the vita is getting too much flak, the damn thing looks amazing and handles well too.

SaGa stuff gets a bad rep for poor translations and lots of removed or missing content. I mean, SaGa Frontier 2 is missing whole story segments and characters because funding died down, and it's a semi well known fact that Fuse was supposed to be the 8th character in SaGa Frontier, but again funding. Never played Unlimited SaGa, but I did play the ps2 Romancing SaGa, which had one of the best intros I ever watched on PS2. The series has potential, but it just doesn't get the care it needs to blossom into a truly awesome title.

I can't say I have sympathy for the people who put these projects out there for people to critique. If you wish for only positive feedback, you are in the wrong line of work. I understand that having a bunch of little shits criticize your game or movie based on merits like "shit looks so lame" is infuriating, but be real. 9 times out of 10, no news is good news. Tekken has a dedicated fanbase, myself included, and Harada is gonna make bank regardless of what neogaf or redshit has to say about it. Same as Michael Bay's ninja turtles, Ben Affleck's Batman portrayal, and so on. Replying to the snot nosed 13 year olds with this kind of "feigned rage" is childish. You've still got hundres of thousands of fans who will love the game and the character, so why go to the trouble of baiting fanboys and nerdy fucks alike? Seems unnecessary.

I woke up to find mario and luigi cupcakes on the kitchen table. I realized then that today was my birthday and that it was time to play a non-stop session of Kingdom Hearts 2.5. I kid...I have a lot of things to do today, and that I already did an 11-hour-non-stop session of Tales of Symphonia on PS3. :D :D :D (send help)
You make it sound like an 11 hour session is worth seeking help for.

Right?


RIGHT?!

Speaking from a point of view where people who are newer to video games come fromyou have to bear in mind that we like our old rpgs because of the fond memories. I am fairly sure most people with no previous experiences in the FF department wouldn't appreciate VI, arguably the best in series, as much as XIII or even X. I feel that coming into video games later in life tends to degrade one's sense of appreciation for the "less is more" love of older games, but that's probably pretty common to us all. With that being said, I'd gently toss her into the deep end of the newer stuff like XIII (which I hate) or maybe even a newer Tales game, like Xillia or Graces F on ps3. The better looking characters and voice acting usually can help acclimate newer players into the realm of the rpg, where the imagination will begin to pick up and let them fill in the story in their head as they go.

If everything I said above is useless because she is in fact a gamer already, fuggit, throw her face first into VI because VI is the bestest. But I'd look for a gba version if I were you as it is the best version...even if Kefka doesn't have his Beavis moment.

This day has already been so strange so far in-so-far as it has gone entirely according to plan. Like, when I get up I set up times to do everything I need or want to do, and of course it never goes exactly as I set aside time for, but my OCD demands I continue to structure my day rigidly. And so far today I've gotten everything done at exactly the time I wanted to get it done. It's a strange, euphoric sensation being this on top of my day.

Anyway, just finished my part of my grad school application. Just waiting on one more letter of recommendation and my transcripts, the latter I just verified have been printed out and will be sent out in plenty of time. It's out of my hands now.

And I'm pretty nervous about the whole thing.

EDIT: Getting upset that I still can't download my Miku DLC, getting the wonderfully generic "An Error Has Occurred" every time I try to download something (Tested a game demo to verify it's not just the Hatsune Miku stuff)
Psn has been experiencing some issues of late. The lovely LizardSquad keeps trying to take credit for it, but whatever. I heard if you go through the psn options and restore licenses I think,it fixes the problems with the psn store. Can't hurt assuming I'm not mixing it up with something else.

Idk why people had issues with Magic Master in VI. I just Repose'd and Osmose'd him to death. Didn't even know you could kill him from mp drain at the time, I just went through status ailments to see which worked, and when berserk landed (resulting in me dying the first time I fought due to loltima upon death), next round I said "No ultima for you this time" and spent the better part of 20 minutes casting quick-repose twice- osmose when low mp. Random cure 3 when needed, and an eternity later, ULTIMA .... NOT ENOUGH MP ....*voosh* .... dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dadun.

Now that I look back, probably shoulda reraised and berserked him. Would have taken way less time.
