Seriously, first she complained about me not selling it ther kid, which I explained was against the law, then wanted a refund when she found out that her 11 year old son was plowing a hooker in his car in the game.

Wait, you in Canada or another country not the USA? Because it's technically legal to sell here (I don't think any attempted law actually passed and got enforced), but it'd get you fired at most places so it's not really that much better for you anyway.
My boss at the time (owner of the store) was a cop and he told me he could get fined for selling mature titles to underage consumers, similarly to selling pornographic magazines to kids. I just looked at the esrb website, though, and as of a ruling in 2011, it's unconstitutional to make selling mature+ rated games to minors illegal, so yeah, I guess I was just being scared into submission, so to speak. I wouldn't have sold it to a kid even if it was okay, as gta is not a series for children to be playing. Personally, I think gta is a great excuse as to why video games get such a bum rep. I have plenty of friends who sell drugs and have had a gun pointed at me twice in my life, why in the name of all hell would I want to play a video game where I can experience that?

Just beat the game, now messing around in post game, bounties and quests a plenty. The final boss was pretty cake, but I was SERIOUSLY overleveled (heroes are all 80+). Overall, I give the game a solid 8.5. The gameplay was fun, but the tame rate for creatures sucks way too much, especially when you're trying to catch them for quests. All the excess attempts caused a bit of a level spike, making everything pitifully easy. The story is great, but it starts to become pretty easy to see coming, and I didn't like how they pulled the old 80% of the game villian is in fact not the major villian baloney, it always sours my taste buds (though it does get surprising at the absolute last second though, I chuckled for it). The music was catchy....til you realize that there is only 1 fucking song playing the whole game. Sort of a late kick in the balls, but I'll eat it. Honestly, my gripes are miniscule regarding the game, Level-5 did a great job making an old rpg here, and I'm gonna use the term old because this is an rpg of olden days. Fuck the wrpgs and jrpgs of today, they're both crappy 9 times out of 10. This reminded me of games like chrono cross, ffvii, pokemon, and so forth. So much freedom to explore, places to go, stuff to do. I was always occupied with this game, and had to force myself away at times to relax and level out from gaming. Last time I did that was probably FFIX or X. This is easily my most enjoyed week and a half in years, and I spent most of it sick and achey.

One suggestion for anyone who is still on the fence or even just starting, take the time to read everything and not speed past it. The language used is quite entertaining, especially the fairies' english slang. It's downright comical at times.

I'm cautiously optimistic with this game. I don't wanna pre-order, hoping for a demo. I remember with Left 4 Dead, I was still on the fence until I played it and then I loved it. I'm hoping its the same for this title.
Completely off topic, but Tunnels, who is the girl in your avatar photo? I know I've seen her before, but I can't remember.

There was that one SNES/Sega Genesis AvP game where you played as the predator. GOD that game was balls hard.

Adam Sessler was one of the hosts on X-play, back when G4TV actually still did video game stuff. He was always the more realistic of the two hosts, so I generally enjoyed his views on games they reviewed, but Morgan Webb (host #2) was hot....so yeah.
1581  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Aliens: Colonial Marines on: January 30, 2013, 10:58:07 PM
I agree, but this looks very....rushed. There have been a few commercials on lately regarding it, and I am significantly unimpressed. Not like with Dead Space 3, GODDAMN IT LOOKS AMAZING. Hopefully it's not too shitty, but I'm not getting excited.
1582  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Aliens: Colonial Marines on: January 30, 2013, 09:54:21 PM
Is it just me, or does this look like a horrible piece of shit? Seriously, it looks like a PS2 game.

Do any of the cast members reprise their roles? Cmon, Michael Biehn is pretty bored lately, and I know Bill Pullman hasn't been doing much since Big Love ended...
1583  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Adam Sessler on Fox News discussing about video game violence on: January 30, 2013, 09:13:26 PM
Wow, fox news couldn't spin that into a negative look for video games.....Sessler rocks.

Seriously though, that comment about GTA was well stated. I still remember when a parent came into the game store I worked in complaining about it 3 days after I WARNED her not to allow her kid to buy it. She actually called the store and said she was okay with her 11 year old son buying it, which I said I wouldn't allow, she had to be here and buy it herself. Seriously, first she complained about me not selling it ther kid, which I explained was against the law, then wanted a refund when she found out that her 11 year old son was plowing a hooker in his car in the game.

Adam Sessler is surprisngly well spoken, I didn't expect his response to be so eloquently worded.

The last set of merit stamp rewards has a tame rate increase. Btw, don't hoard the points, you have to fill out each row before the next row is available. The taming rate is increased by 20% of the innate rate per beastie, so a 10% tame rate before becomes 12% after, and so on. It's the best I've come across so far. Don't worry though, once you get a dinoceros and learn earsplitter, everything dies SSSOOOO fast.

Seriously can't emphasize enough how crack that one monster is. It's like mewtwo of the ni no kuniverse. Its attack power is beyond comprehension.


It's a lot later to worry about, but auroralynxes are another good monster to look into. Great healers, plus winged kittycats are awesome. I named mine aurakitteh :)

Get a Purrrloiner if you can. You can find them by castaway cove. Its got a great attack speed and nice damage as well as huge evasion. It trumps the mite very quickly. Plus, one of its tier 3 variants can be a pirate with an eye patch....it's so badass.

Bighorns are great, though I've never used one personally. You can catch one on old smoky, and as far as a tank goes he's pretty solid til the end of the game. The banana dude is pretty cool too, huge attack power and he's a favorite of party member number 2, so he gets bonuses being in their party. The cog things on Teeheeti island are great damage takers, I left one on party member 3, and as long as it has stamina, it can stay out indefinitely and eat hits. Saved my ass a few times fighting nightmare bosses. But yeah, as soon as you can fly, go to the cliffa north of al mamoon and find a dinoceros and catch it. Priority 1, I tells ya. He's so crack you'll end up feeling cheap using him.

Surprised the creator didn't throw a Neato in there somehow.

So I accidentally came across an enemy called Tokotoko while fleshing out my familiars that gives retarded amounts of exp per kill (9000 per fight). I knew about an enemy that the buttheads at gefaqs just called toko that gave 2k exp, but didn't know about this guy. In about 3 hours I took my human players to 59, most of the familiars to 50ish, and the slower exp ones to their 40s. My Catastroceros is level 18, since he levels the slowest and all...I am significantly overpowered now, the dino bastard hits for 150-200 per hit, and his spells do average of 400. I broke the game....:)

It's seth macfarlane humor, plain and simple. Dick and fart jokes, 80's and 90's references, and a story that's overshadowed by stupidty. There's nothing hiding, it's all right there. I loved it for its hilarity, but I appreciate it for its genuine simplicity. It'a not trying to convey some deeper meaning like buds over babes or if you dream hard enough you get what you want, it's simply a nonsense story with good actors and obvious gags at a number of things. I'm only being a shmuck about it because that movie was the only good thing to happen that weekend when it was released in my life....and let me tell you, I'll NEVER forget that weekend....most horrible set of days since my mom died...

Of course it was also the week before spiderman, and 3 weeks later TDKR aka the best fucking movie yet.
1588  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: January 28, 2013, 02:21:56 AM
I actually agree insofar I think it could have been a lot funnier than it was.  The concept was great, but not enough "ha-ha"s, and it kept dipping into emotional territory that it really didn't need do (the movie would have been better if it was more about just Wahlberg and Ted).
That's it, you all suck, I'm vonna go watch my special edition blu ray of it right now

...bunch of anuses.
1589  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: January 28, 2013, 01:11:24 AM
Ted -
So here we have the vulgar teddy bear movie. And that's really all it is. There is absolutely nothing else going for this movie besides the pot smoking, and ridiculously vulgar, teddy bear. You could have substituted a normal guy in the bears place and no one would have(should have?) cared about this movie. Thing is, the schtick grows tiresome about 5 minutes into the movie. There's only so many F-bombs a toy bear can drop before you roll your eyes and hope they just move on already with the story.
And how exactly did the bear get this way? His BFF John, and the only influence we are aware of, is your typical Nice Guy, but with a few issues.
Everything about this movie has been done 10,000 times before, just without a talking bear.
It went on too long, and was only funny in a few spots. Once again, I am baffled by what the general populace latches on to. This makes money while genuinely great movies get ignored. BTW, I actually have found Family Guy funny when I've watched it here and there, so that can't be held against me in my judgement here.
And will someone please feed Ms. Kunis? My god, is she skinny. Yuck.


...I no longer like you, mr grim.

Once you can fly, head to the cliffs north of Al Mamoon and land, then hunt down a beastie called Dinoceros.

This thing is a monster. It rapes face. It took me like 6 fights to catch one, but it appears to have   a 2% catch rate, so it may take a while. I've evolved it once and at level 8 it had more attack power than my mighty mite at 37. It's astoundingly strong and worth farming for one.

Also of note, level 39 Oliver now....pretty much sure I'm overleveled now.
