When I was a kid and that happened, I used go bounce the game up and down with the NES off for a couple seconds, but that's in line with the old "blow (spit) on the contacts" theory of NES quickfixes. To be honest, the NES was around when I was 4, so the only tech stuff I know regarding it was that the contacts on the games were easily interfered with from dirt and such, so contact cleaner (or rubbing alcohol and qtips) worked wonders to get games working again. Doubt it's something you haven't tried yet yodes, but if this is news to you, hope it helps.

I have the original USA NES and I've done everything I can to get that thing working. I changed the connectors, cleaned it, prayed to Romulus and Remus, and sacrificed 200 moon-faced virgins to the Sun but the fucking thing won't work.


So does anyone have the 2nd model? The one that loads like a toaster? I see it only has an RF out. How shitty is that going to look?
As good as composite a/v would look, it's not like Nintendo games were pushing graphical boundaries. The NES you have, does it still turn on, or not even that far?

I was on a moderately-sized server.  It didn't merge into the other servers when they merged them, so it was sufficiently sized.

I remember there being one major character wipe in XI in about 2005 of inactive characters, but after that they started the Adventurer Appreciation program where they were basically rewarding you for coming back after a break.
The Adventurer appreciation program was for everyone who was playing though, not just returning players.

If it's anything like XI, you should still have access to it.  I didn't log onto my character for 4 years and it was there when I came back.
According to XI ToS they can terminate your character after I believe three months of inactivity. If you're on a low traffic server, it's unlikely they'll bother. But if you're on a big server like hyperion, I wouldn't throw that likelyhood out of the equation.

13 bucks a month is pretty much what I would spend to go buy 2 games in a month at separate points in the month. Being that this will probably consume a larger amount of time than an average game, buying a new game won't be as high a priority for a while. Besides, the only 2 games I am really watching right now are both released next month.

Wow, 2 heart attacks? Fuck Dice, that sucks. Hope you get on his ass about dietary changes. As for your other issues...at least you get to wear something YOU choose for the wedding instead of a generally tacky bridesmaid dress that 2-3 other girls will be wearing too. And being a pretty lady working in a video game store, I assume every nerd in there is trying to be your best friend. And school...well...idk lady, school sucks no matter how old you get.

Don't let it get you down, depression makes you old and fat.

Agent Dee will be asleep in the limsa lominsa inn when the deletion happens. I will be back as Agent "D" in retail.

Oh, I remembered something else I'd like.

More dynamic battle themes, ala Skies of Arcadia.  GUST tried to do them recently in Ayesha, but their presence is not nearly as common in RPGs as I wish they would be.  We definitely need more themes that change depending on current circumstances in the battle.

Dragon's Dogma did it really recently as well, especially with the Dark Arisen expansion.
I did enjoy that little pop in music when you nailed a good weakpoint on an enemy and (generally) whipped the ass of said mob.

I really have to wonder...

Is anyone on this board actually entertaining the idea of getting this?
Only if I can sell it to someone for double the cost.

I took blacksmith to 22 (manually) and the level 20 quest was just affix materia to a hammer. Was pretty easy...cept I ran out of mats and HQ'd the hammer...that pissed me off since my existing one was NQ AND lower level. But yeah, I enjoyed the crafting thus far, as it was a pretty mellow minigame to do it and fairly rewarding for low level.

Did Haukke Manor a couple times tonight....that place has the best music thus far. Also, I hate archers. I swear the one who joined our run was just TRYING to pull mobs away from me. She pissed me off real good. Course I hadn't gotten Butcher's Block yet so my base heavy swing combo had no real hate accrual, now it does (for the rest of tonight as the beta end in a little while DX). Man this game can not come out any sooner.

Alisha, I'm not gonna shit on your ability to play this game, but I am gonna say that it sounds like your tank needs work. Between overpower and tomahawk, I usually have no issues keeping hate or re-accruing it should a single mob straggle off to fuck with my healer. I'd suggest you recommend to your tank to stop worrying about his miniscule dps output, as it is miniscule compared to lnc and pug, and worry about keeping mobs on him/herself and not eating needless damage so your mage can assist in damage and not spamcure him/her. At least get some spare healing otherwise like second wind and maybe cure off gla, though I have yet to do this myself. Again, not saying your ability to play pug isn't good, just I have a pretty strong pug friend who has been playing since version 1.0 who really knows his class and still doesn't pull hate off me. It's not hard to get hate on a tank is all I'm saying.

Xenosaga 2 didn't have drawn out battles?
Did we play the same game?

By the time I hit the final dungeon of the game the non-boss battles were so long that I've had SRPGs with faster battle systems.

I'm all for complex, longer battles, but Xenosaga 2's was horrendous.
Sorry, the way the sentence played out made it seem like Xenosaga 2's battles weren't terribly long and annoying for little to no real reward. Xenosaga 2 had a great concept with terrible execution...I mean seriously bad.
1483  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What do you want out of PS4/XBone RPGs? on: July 13, 2013, 03:48:54 PM
More skill demanding gameplay. Tired of rpgs that require you to hold the x button down while your auto attacks do all the work. Make active play rewarding without being overly drawn out...like Xenosaga 2.

Wonder if Mega Man will get an X variation like Link and Young Link?

Maybe the neighbor meant to cut down Goose but got him mixed up with a tree?
But if you cut goosey down now, he will become more powerful than you could ever imagine...
