Ok, i couldn't check the link on my phone, as it just downloaded a pdf that I didn't feel like dealing with on my phone. But it still stands to reason that PS3 users are left in the dust. We didn't get any access to the first version, no beta access til their phase 3, and no access to the official release til a much later date. Again, I ask, what was the point of video game consoles, outside of salvaging video games?

So once again, PS3 users are left in the dark.

What was the point of making video game consoles again?

Got Ted and The Dark Knight Rises on blu ray, a couple new shirts, an awesome family guy shirt where the griffins are dressed as justice league members except meg, and a gym bag. Up til now, I've been using an insulated lunch bag to carry a gatorade, my lock, a can of old spice spray, and my dirty sweaty clothes after a workout. Let me tell you...that fucking bag is stanky now, so the nice gym bag was a godsend.

Also got some money, and about 30 dollars in lotto scratch-offs that I won 2 fucking dollars off of. Seriously, my old man bought about 150 bucks in scratchers, and combined between my family members we won about 53 dollars, 42 off one ticket. Waste of money if you ask me, but it makes my sisters happy. So I'm sitting on about 200 bucks now, I think I'm gonna hold it for a bit, maybe start a PS4 fund early.

I meant only 1 Atma Weapon, with the offering relic for x-fight (4 attacks against entire enemy party).

How many people here finished XIII-2?
Platinumed, actually.

You know, I didn't mind substance for the super version of MGS2, and Subsistence was acceptable for MGS3....I guess. But what the fuck is a revengeance? Not even the worst engrish translation would create a mistake like that, what the hell was Konami thinking with a title like that? Should have have just named it Metal Gear Rising, just like that.

The rasp/osmose method does take a while, but it's safest and assures you'll win. Yeah, that mp draining will take a very long while (my rasps would do about 400 per cast, osmose would refill all my mp which was in the 5-600 area, and if I recall correctly he's got about 55,000 mp), but you can't really die from it. There are better methods, my favorite was using the esper that made everyone jump and see who killed him (and thus ate the ultima), but they all have possibilities of getting you dead. I threw this method out for people who had trouble with him, that's all.

Also, the thing with espers and stat bonuses...yeah, they're about as needed as a 4 man group of ultima casters. By the end of the game, all you really need is one of the 4 people who can use the Atma Weapon and give them hp boosting gear, an offering, and either a genji glove and ragnarok or excalibur, or an economizer and the quick spell. If you can't kill a boss in 2 rounds you're doing it wrong. Hell, I started going through games specifically not giving people espers because I didn't want spells for my trips to the coliseum. Nothing like using terra and watching her blow 5 minutes of her morph ability standing there casting something silly like merton and wrecking herself. I keep kicking myself for giving my copy of ffvi for the gba to my buddy. I was at the end, going through the secret dungeon...5/8 dragons killed.

I used to abuse the easy level up trick you could do with bannon early in the game. Just set the commands to memory, edgar auto xbow, bannon health, and terra and sabin fight. Get to the raft part before you fight the octopus, and using a turbo controller, just tape down the confirm buttom. You keep circling around one junction point, and enemies will keep attacking you. A few hours later and you're generally so overpowered the rest of the game is cake. I always giggle hitting the stupid octupus with fire dance and fire 3 at the start of the game.

As for the Tower of Fanatics, bring wall rings and have berserk and rasp/osmose for the last battle. Equip everyone with wall rings and your invincible for 99% of the area. At the boss, hit him with berserk, negating all his spell casting cuz it will heal him on occasion, then just rasp and osmose him til he's out of mp. He'll attempt ultima, but flop cuz he's got no mp, and you win. Also a possibility, learn life 3, which revives you after death, and cast it on someone, then tear him apart, though you'll still want berserk on cuz his physical damage is garbage. His ultima will generally kill anyone under max hp even with shell on. Could also try golem I guess, never did though, cuz rasp/osmose is just so easy.

I just found out that a previous patient of mine (an 11 year old kid) died from his leukemia, and also a good friend of many years has cancer.

How's that for holiday cheer?
That's pretty shitty, dude. The kid, obviously you couldn't do anything more than you did. Your friend, I consider it an excuse to be even more merry around him/her. Hopefully though it's treatable and s/he will live a long number of years regardless.

In still sucky, though less depressing news, I feel sick. Money that was supposed to come in for the holidays hasn't arrived yet, and i've put off shopping for so long because of it that I am essentially doing all my shopping in an hour from now. I am pretty unhappy about it, and am sure this christmas is going to be one of my more miserable experiences.

Hey, I posted a pic of my fat ass mid hurricane, no one here has any excuse to feel self conscious anymore

The Hobbit looked like it was playing in fast forward in 48 fps and the storyline had no resolution for anything. I mean, even in Fellowship of the Ring there was a resolution for the fellowship, and Boromir. For the Hobbit, it really shows that it's one book split into three movies.
I thought it was 2 movies?
1814  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy VI on: December 22, 2012, 11:18:54 AM
Why would you want to skip out on them though? It adds play time, makes the game last longer. I mean, who wouldn't want to play VI for a longer period of time? It's fuckwin.

I dunno, I am pretty fond of a nice long lance myself.
I answer that with a poleaxe.

I like the quiet, knowledgeable, old bruiser in most RPGs. To be honest, the most ideal hero I can think of in general is Guts of Berserk fame. Giant powerhouse, smart fighter, not afraid to lose control and simply throw himself at what he's fighting, and still a kind soul at heart. Reminds me of myself a bit, minus the berserker armor and the dragonslayer....and the monster fighting
