I definitely got the sense that Achilles was a bit rough around the edges.....
One might say it was his only weakness....say...

His achilles' heel?

Get a first gen ps3. Full ps2 backwards compatibility, full psn functionality, all ps3 titles function fine on it. Best of the ps2 and ps3 together.

Also, fuck the vita. The system is quickly losing any and all steam it once (if ever) had and is getting less and less worhtwhile releases developed for it. Almost all the cool indie stuff is being released on the ps4 as well, and the good stuff to come is getting ps4 releases as well.
(Disclaimer: my opinion)

Best ff moment was beating wiegraf 1v1 at Riovanes Castle. Finally figuring out the perfect, foolproof method that GUARANTEED me the win each time...I felt accomplished.

(Just in case you all were wondering, I went with auto potion/x pots only, monk main guts sub, two swords, and move +2. Repeatedly yell to get speed up for 4 turns to his 1, accumulate til 999 damage, 1 shot him AND Belius)

You could probably just stop at "auto potion + x-potions only" part, unless the rest of your team is completely useless.
Nah, I 1 manned it.

Let's be fair, the ps2 generation was a bit biased. Nintendo had its audience locked in already, and sega was flopping around miserably with the dreamcast after saturn killed them the previous gen, and then there was xbox which was unknown at the time and a late release. Of course the ps2 gen was astounding, it ran all but uncontested as the game king.

If we're gonna talk desserts and brownies and ice cream and such, then everyone needs NEEDS to try this.

Edited cuz the first photo was apparently too awesome for the page.

Saw Civil War, which was pretty good...aside from Paul Bettany being a know it all who yet still managed to fuck up cuz "I was distracted"...fucking loser shit. Otherwise, the movie was good. Kind of odd to call it a Captain America movie, as he got far less screen time then the title character should get, but if yoh like the marvel flicks this is top notch.

@Agent D.: Yeah that's one. She also did it once or twice in XIII, as well as one time in Dissidia 012.

Honestly is more of an stance that comes and goes really quickly more than only a pose. And besides, Squall's Gunblade design and use is much more tricky to get to understand clearly instead of the one Lightning has since the entire design of the weapon is as flexible as her fighting style and it actually fire projectiles instead of only being able to strike your opponent with a melee attack.

I'm still amazed that something like Squall's gunblade "took off".  I kinda thought it was a cheesy idea and I never really got how it's supposed to work (does it fire or just sort of...add extra 'umph' to hits??).  FF8 in general I'm kind of ambivalent on; for half of the good designs there's an equal part of ones that just didn't really work with me.... NORG being a big one of these. :P

I really gotta revisit that game though, and/or just finish my FF PSX-era game journals on it.

I think Squall's gunblade just increases the power of his strings (although it uses cartridges so... figure that one out), I think his Dissidia combat style used this as well. From FF Wiki:

Quote
In Dissidia Final Fantasy, Squall Leonhart's use of the Revolver is refined beyond the normal slashes seen in Final Fantasy VIII, incorporating the use of the gunblade's recoil for a unique combat style. Using the Heel Crush and Rough Divide techniques, Squall triggers a round while holding the gunblade behind him, the recoil propelling him forward. Using the Solid Barrel and Beat Fang techniques, Squall thrusts the blade into the enemy, triggers a round (which also damages the enemy), and the recoil of the shot pushes the blade back, where Squall immediately thrusts again, repeating the process several more times. In Final Fantasy VIII Squall wields his gunblade two-handed, but in Dissidia Final Fantasy he often uses the weapon with one hand.

Sounds like Squall refined his Gunblade into a Shotgunblade.

Also, why aren't there any Shotgunblades? We have Gunblades, Transforminggunblades, Chainsawguns and Flamingchainsawswords. So what's next? Transformingchainsawlightsabersthatshootsmallerlightsabers?
Well, gun is a pretty generic term....plus shotgunblade was technically done in Parasite Eve 2.

It's a technical line of shit, but it's how I feel.

You mean like how she has a weak grip on her sword while over-head?
(Don't do this at home kids anyone)
Looking at it further...how the hell would she ever grip the trigger? It's in such a strange position and with such a wide gripping position...

Tried the beta last night. Fun stuff, handles well (though the lack of aiming down sight disturbs me), and fairly fast paced. Lots of characters to mess with, all somewhat different from one another with ups and downs each. I'd say try it out, but I don't expect to be buying it, as it ends up being a very simple experience unless you live for multiplayer versus shooters.

^Lightning has done that pose before. Everything else I respect it because is your opinion.



I assume you mean this one? I don't like that pic either simply because it goes against Lightning's basic character of form over function. It's eye catching and flaunts some of her attributes but when would you ever have your sword raised over your head in a ready stance? It's asking to get skewered. It's a defensive stance and really only when your opponent has gone for an offensive overhead strike.

It's a technical line of shit, but it's how I feel.

It's a silly design.

I don't know man. One has to do some hardcore jumps in logic to find the design silly, specially looking for a second your avatar and be reminded of that really weird figure for the Amazon.
Not sure how my head nestled between the sorceress's hugely oversized boobs has any merit here, but the design is silly because it's just silly. The flow of her outfit is nonsensical, especially given it's a bust instead of a full sized statue, the hair color is off, the way she's holding the sword is dumb and looks flashy over functional which is very not Lightning, and considering the pose itself what is the point of making it a bust anyway? It's a silly design, it feels incredibly unfinished and regardless of how much detail it was given, the details themselves seem flawed considering the character in question.

That's my opinion amyway.

Here's the silver screen look for the Power Rangers (2017). What do you guys think?


Source: SuperHeroHype/Entertainment Weekly

There's a Tron/Transformers joke in there somewhere, but I'm having a hard time finding it under all that clumsy, overdesigned blockiness. Seriously, Blue Ranger there looks like he's being propped up, Weekend at Bernie's style.
It reminds me of the original movie, actually, just a little more black instead of white.

So I'm considering taking my first vacation ever next year (as I don't work a regular 9-5 week work schedule), and I'm debating on going to Japan or maybe Ireland. Japan obviously for the electronics and video game related reasons, though I would like to travel outside of it to the more rural areas as well for some culture shock. Ireland's a little more interesting...besides the semi obvious heritage background, for a long time I considered that to be my "retirement home" locale. Anyone have some input or suggestions regarding either, I'd love to hear them.
