If trayvon hadn't attacked zimmerman, zimmerman wouldn't have had to defend himself. What if zimmerman had defended himself with just his bare hands and struck the kid in his temple or throat and killed him? Would he sill be a murderer? I'm sorry if you feel like everyone should have some basic knowledge of self defense, but if my head is getting bashed off the ground by someone, that's grounds to stop him ANY WAY POSSIBLE.

ANY FUCKING WAY possible.

Anyone who's still on the fence about Zimmerman can get fucked

That's nice but he still murdered a kid.
Yes, that's what a murder does...finds a flipped SUV and helps save 4 people. I am seriously dumbfounded at how many people have sent this guy death threats and violent calls, meanwhile in spite of most of the ignorant americans and their idiocy he helps a family of 4 survive what could have been an incredibly deadly situation.

If this was simply a stunt he pulled to save face, he could have just donated a few thousand dollars to unicef.

It sill amazes me in this day and age how awkward it feels to bring up video games in general conversation. I can talk about this fucking itchild being born from the hotty-turned-princess Kate Middleton and feel fine, but talking about that awesome moment in the last of us when (any moment applies they're all awesome) is so scandalous. It saddens me that morons can slam games on the news about violence or feminists can call the misogynistic and the men who play them rapists in training, but why is having a discussion about that story point x game so awkwardly hush hush still?

Gives people something to talk about in their dull, dreary, meaningless lives I guess.
I swear that was the point of video games,I thought?

Thank Anne Hathaway for that. Glad to hear whatever was ailing you isn't ailing you so hard anymore. Good health to all!

Thanks AgentD.  Funny thing about cancer, it doesn't discriminate.  I exercised regularly, ate healthy, didn't smoke or drink and still it happened.  So enjoy your grape soda and fried chicken.
Ungh, that hits home pretty hard. July was the 4 year anniversary of my mom's passing to lung cancer. Do me a favor on a personal level and beat the tar out of it. I'm officially rooting for you now.

trying to decide on a wedding studio for our photos...it's pretty tough. So many choices, and I like them all!...
Tell the one you decide on that the other studio said they'd do it for x amount less than what the one you chose is suggesting, but you still picked their studio because you felt it was better. Usually gets you in on their good side and some other luxuries.

I have every other weekend off, so it seems the stars are misaligned.

I'm kinda in the same situation, so the next quiz will be in 3 weeks so I can get back to the original fortnightly schedule.

The next quiz will be Tokitowa - Time and Eternity...



lol no.

I don't know yet, I'll probably announce it next week. Researching to see if the Zelda answers were correct and not debatable was a nightmare I don't wanna have to go through again, so it will probably be a game I have actually played.
If you ever need some assistance, I'd be happy to do some question research for a game for you. Least I can do to repay the efforts you put forth with this.

If Sabin can Suplex a Ghost Train, then I should be able to give an F-5 or a Chokeslam to a tank these days.

Besides, how come every martial artist can punch the shit out of a robot or vehicle? Most of the time, it's heavy hitters that would sooner grapple you that would generally show off by bending a plate of steel or punching his way through a wall. I'm just saying why does it always have to be some asian martial art? They fucking love wrestling in japan, as seen by the fact that most pros train there. Gimme Greco from Chrono Cross or Rico from Xenogears. Hell, even Ziggy had a sleeperhold in Xenosaga 3 which was awesome.

You know, another thing I would like to see in rpgs and maybe action games in general are knockouts instead of just kills. Like if kill an enemy, you get more exp but less drops and maybe no ap, however a knockout or a surrender could have varied battle results. Things like that would give players more options in fights, especially in cases like rpgs where item accrual and specialized points for abilities or magic are always liked for things like low level runs and challenge modes.

Now this is more of a personal desire as a fan of wrestling, but I'd like to see more wrestling fighting maneuvers in rpgs. I'm a big fan of submission maneuvers and they don't see a lot of play in anything outside of wrestling  and suplexes don't fucking count. I wanna use a sleeper hold to choke someone out, then raid their pockets for new stuff and get ability experience for using a skillfull grab that will help me learn how to do something more destructive. Even more interesting would be a similar situation where instead of them getting knocked out they give up and offer rarer stuff for letting them go.Obviously this would only work on humanoid opponents but still....i like the idea greatly.

Been watching the newsroom's new season. First episode made a quick dig at SOPA which I enjoyed as they showed it EXACTLY for what it is. But it continued off pretty well from last season, though the opening obviously is further down the road since Will's being interviewed by lawyers  about spoilerific stuff. 

People give this show a bum rep, but I like it. Olivia Munn's so hot and she plays a financial nerd which is interesting. Emily Mortimer is the only MILF I find attractive, and then there's Allison Pill, who's such a dainty ditsy dweeb that tries so hard to do the right thing in her eyes, it makes her adorable. Then the guys...Jeff Daniels plays pompous smartass so amazingly well, but his big brother moments sell him most. He really is the tough guy with a soft spot in the show. Dev Patel as the nerd fits so well and helps estrange him from that INSUFFERABLE airbender movie, and now that they're doing the occupy wall street stuff in show  he's probably gonna see even more play in show. John Gallagher is competent but very...idk...out of place I'd say. Even his character shows how out of place he is. The fact that he's like 40% if what's going on at any time drives me nuts, but at least he tries hard.

Honestly,the show is great. Instead of Pseudo Intellectual nonsense ( btw I hate the term pseudo intellectual)
like reviewrs like to claim,it's far more dumb news show shit, akin to what you'd see on the Today Show or even  a talk show almost, only less showbiz news and more world news and politics. It's done in a smart mechnic, without people having to throw around 6 syllable terms that would alienate most viewers and piss of even more . I love it.

That's exactly what I mean at the end their mesh. It feels like parts of what I described are everywhere. Elements all over the place in the atelier iris games, geomancy in final fantasy, elemental attack manipulation somewhere else....i think it all just sounds so second nature because it occurs in every game in one form or another. Still, the concepts all sound great together...so I hope to see something like that one day.

Evil Dead 2013. Not as fun as the original. Quite the opposite actually but the sheer level of brutality was great. I liked it a lot:)

Just watched this the other night and dare I say I liked it better than the original.  I didn't think it was scary but I did cringe from the brutality of some of the scenes.  Army of Darkness is the best movie of the lot still.
Groovy.

I was at NY Comic Con a couple years ago, and I almost toppled into Bruce Campbell. I was at a point where he was one of my favorite actors, but upon seeing him I kinda choked and pulled the nerd move of the day, shouting OH MY GOD IT'S BRUCE CAMPBELL. He replied (and killed what little childhood I had left) 30 bucks'll get you an autograph kid. Once the startruckedness faded...yeah I felt a little dead inside. I do still enjoy his stuff, but yeah...

Speaking of Army of Darkness, watched that a couple days ago. Really is just hilarious and awesome.

I think something I'd like to see in upcoming rpgs is a more active battle system. Kinda like a cross between Legaia stuff and Saga Frontier 2, but more like an action game. Imagine a battle starts and you're given an option to fight either 1 on 1 with an enemy for a more detailed battle, or group vs group for a simplified and faster fight (Saga Frontier 2), and in the 1v1 fight it was almost like a fighting game where you could associate different basic attacks to controller buttons and combine them to form special attacks or combo strings. It's boring to simply hold down a button all day for basic fights, but sometimes you just want that easy answer, so you can choose the group fight and essentially press (button) to win.

I also had this really fucking radical idea for a battle system in more action rpg style where you did special attacks based on your terrain. Think geomancer in FFtactics but to a whole new degree. Like if there was water in the immediate area you could use it to heal players or attack an enemy, or if there was a patch of grass you could use that to grow vines amd plants to ensnare your foe or gas them with different plantlife for sleep or poison or paralysis. Of course, in the instance where an element isn't available you'd have an option as well. You could carry instant element mods like a bottle of water or a torch or a plant, though these would give you smaller effects depending on quality. I know it sounds like it's been done before, but I can't think of any game that ever portrayed it in this way. You have so many games that give you alchemy for making items or changing them, and it's pretty standard rpg fare to have elements and elemental spells and such, but this would be less like a spell and more like literal field manipulation, almost like in Avatar TLA. Actually, when I think back on it, it reminds me a lot of that show, but more in a magical way. This would be more science fiction. Lots of babbling, I know, but hey...maybe one of you aspiring video game developers will see this and throw it out there for use one day....I can dream.
