Just started playing this game... it's really great. VERY Dragon Quest VIII. I've never heard anyone mention any similarity to DQVIII, but it's immediately obvious. Must have been done by the same team. Even Jo Haishi's music sounds extremely Dragon-Questy. Anyway, I loved DQVIII so this comes as a huge compliment. The cell shaded graphic style, the goofy villains with weird ways of talking, the lush over world, and all the billions of fun British accents.

Only slight criticism is that Oliver is not a believable american, you can hear his english accent poke through all the time. Reminds me of Peri from old Doctor Who... the American who wasn't. Not a problem. I just wish they hadn't tried to make him American, it gets in the way a bit.

Oh, definitely some Earthbound feel as well.
Yeah, have you read this topic at all? I've mentioned repeatedly that this feels like DQ8.

Been playing the new MP stuff, and I am in love with the Geth Juggernaut. I walk around and eat hits all day, cuz I have 4600 shields and a melee hit that absorbs damage into shield restoration. Between that, my turret on heal mode, and Siege pulse with 40% damage reduction when fully charged, I can solo multiple mobs on gold with little effort. I love it.

Big back workout last night with some bicep finesse tossed in. Nothing truly groundbreaking to speak of, but I was there for about 2 and a half hours, so I got a lot of exercises in. To end my workout, I played with one of those aerobic sticks that weigh like 15 lbs and did windmills with it for like 5 minutes. Now I know that doesn't sound hard, but try doing a windmill with a 15 lb stick. The simple act of keeping it outstretched is demanding after a minute or two, nevermind spinning it hand over hand in a constant rythym. My workout buddies and I were messing around afterwards with the same aerobic sticks, seeing who could hold it up the longest from the end of the stick. I seriously can not stress enough how stupid it was doing this, as my right arm and shoulder are killing me still. Also, I held it as such for a whole 4 seconds.

Snow hitting the city today, so idk if I'm gonna make it to the gym tonight. Otherwise, today is shoulders.

Where are you playing, dincrest?

Nah, Klyde, it's not maturity. Just more experience in dealing with assholes than your average nerd, lol. Makes me more worldly, I guess. It's funny though, I always peg myself as the immature one in groups, mostly because I act the most retarded. Couple that with being the oldest kid in my family and still technically living with my dad (both sisters live on their own for a few years now), and I generally have an child-like sense of inferiority around most of my peers.

In regards to the working out, I try to switch it up from straight strength building to form and endurance every few days. For example, I was given advice on a modified method of barbell exercises qwhere instead of keeping your weight plates posistioned normally, center of the plate through each end, you place it almost like a kettlebell on the bar, so the weight hangs and sways. Imagine doing a benchpress where instead of just pushing it up and bringing it down, you also have to control the sway motion both left and right AND forward and backward. It takes a ridiculous amount of extra core stability to do that, and it's a great way to practice perfect form for exercises. I was able to do a set with 135 lbs at 12 reps, but it was definitely a more strenous. I can only imagine it on something like a squat or military press...frightening.

Anyways, hell yeah I'm gonna keep up with updates here. Maybe it's sort of bragging, I can see some people.interpreting it that way, but I like the complimenta from you guys about it. Makes me feel like someone cares :)

See, once again, revealing my age has lead to negative reults!

(in case it hasn't be fairly clear, most of the last 2 posts have been humorous in nature, albeit truthful. Just tossing that out there)

I read that most of the game is basically microtransactions in the form of those figures. It kind of turned me off to it. Well, that and it looked like shit, but meh, to each his/her own.

Generally, anyone who knows my age and hears that number as my  weight spends either 10 minutes telling me how unhealthy that is and how I'll die before 50 if I don't do something about it, or how at that age and still being a virgin is nearly worse than being an obese fuck.

Fuck it, I can kill all of you if I freak out in a rage now, I'm 27.

how old are you, D?
I'm old enough to know that this answer will get me into shit, so lets say old enough to gamble inn vegas, not old enough for my first necessary colonoscopy. Why do you ask good sir?

Just beat the game, monsoon was the worst boss. Other than that, the other bosses were just abuse parry, or in the case of crab battle abusing the electric slide lol.

The french tickle stick is the best weapon ever.!

So I put up 255 on benchpress 3 times unassisted. Pretty proud of it, considering it was my 5th set. Also did incline benchpress with dumbells, 85 pounds each. Fucking hardest part was actually getting the dumbells into the ready position, so much force exerted just to lift the damn things up. Hit the pec fly machine afterwards and maxed it out at 200lbs. Finished up with a forward bench press at about 280 lbs, and finally I did some tricep pushdowns at 200 lbs too just to switch it up. And now my monday's will be chest from this day forth! Course now I'm even more self conscious about women as I fear I may hug a lady and break something...

Tomorrow, I'm installing a security camera setup, doing laundry, and then a baxk workout. I'm aiming for an unassisted pullup by the end of the year, and before anyone here says they can do pull ups, easy, etc....I weigh 380lbs. If you can do a pull up at that weight, you're a fucking monster, I'd hate to make you angry as you could literally pull my arm off and beat me with it.


Thursday, I have to go to marlboro, NJ...idk why yet, I just know it's for one of my dad's friend. Again, that's Marlboro, NEW JERSEY. This makes me sad.

The controller can last for years, but the contacts inside can wear away with use, so it's possible you've used it to death. A PS2 controller will play any ps1 or ps2 game on a ps2, as will a ps3 controller play any ps1, 2, or 3 game you have on your compatible ps3. Just if certain games don't have support for analog sticks, the analog sticks will have no function.

Any of the original dungeons from pre-Zilart days has new enemies, the same ones you kill for the LB10 items. Grounds tome for extra exp and tabs as well as skill up prowess, maybe skill up food, and if you wanna grind for one a prouesse ring, and if you're lucky martial master will be up too. I like the exit in ranguemont's pass to beucedine glacier, since it's right next to a zone line and gives you an easy escape route plus there's a tome right by the exit. Only hard part is getting there....long ass walk.

I can imagine a smell when I think about it, so I don't see any difference if it were in a dream.
