2011  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Leading Women? (A Dicey-Rant Topic?!) on: June 22, 2012, 04:50:58 PM
When a woman is 6 ft 4 inches tall, 235 lbs, and looks sort of like Bill Goldberg in terms of physique, I'll accept women as action heroes. Til then, they can be lead roles in anything, doesn't mean I'll take them seriously. I didn't take lightning seriously, nor did I take the bride in kill bill seriously. Doesn't mean the movie or game suffered because of it in my opinion, it's just like all these jrpg heroes. 18 year old scrawny kid saves the world my ass, I could make a better hero. Where's the 7ft 300lb Sylvester Stallone looking mother fucking hero?

I think I may just end up getting the psp versions of breath of fire 3 and V Profile. I hear they are both pretty faithful
BoF3 on psp is exactly the same, though I faintly recall that the fairie tiara when used at a flower circle was fixed to say fairie tiara both times, not switch from flower to fairie. I could be wrong, haven't played the psx version in a VERY long time.

Valkyrie Profile is supposedly a combination of the all the extras in both version of the original or something. Basically, the best of both worlds. There's no reason not to play both of those on psp, same games and easier to find.

Oh also, Lunar Silver Star Story did get a remake as well, and though some may find it somewhat less awesome, I loved it. It too is on psp, and it's a full makeover including voices and a new prologue, as well as a new super move ability for each character (2 if you include the equipped item one too).

Some 13 odd Tales titles out there, I swear if they don't put Cless, Asbel, one of the other 50 something tales heroes or heroines in it, I wil fucking shit a power pellet.

Or are you guys referring to deathblows in which case; eh, they're pretty similar.

Except for Fei Fong alpha & omega ying & yang Jesus Wong

Case in point: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sR3wDw6CElU

I meant in comparison to how deathblows worked in Legend of Legaia (or at least lol1).

Plus those numbers have to be taken with a grain of salt considering that Fei was sporting a fully armed and operational Power Crisis.
All I remember about xenogears combos was using them would generally win me whatever fight I was in right there. Those super deathblows in the endgame were unnecessary imho, consideri.g the entire end of the game is only mechs, which killed all that effort I made in hitting 99 with everyone and getting everything. Sad times.

LoL's combo system was fun...too bad if you didn't use an art you were just wasting a turn with it. You know, to this day, I never used a fury boost in LoL. Dunno why, it always bothered me though that I would play through and have like 50 or 60 of em sitting around and never used em.

If I had done that as a kid, I would've gotten the belt. If any kid of mine did that shit, they'd likely get worse.

Ditto.

The profession held by most of my friends is high school teacher. It's all in the parents and frankly most parents suck or are a nonfactor. Some of the stories they tell me about the kids in their classes are shocking
But it's just like that first picture dice put up illustrates. 40 years ago...if a teacher scolded a student, the kid PRAYED their parents wouldn't find out for fear of having to sit down with most of their behind having become one massive whelt. Nowadays, if a teacher suggests the student should try to change how they are, parents reach an all time uproar. The sheer idea of a teacher suggesting how a parent should raise their kid, the nerve of them.

But you know, it's a double edged sword today too. Bullying is at an all time high ( bullying a bus monitor? REALLY?), teachers are constantly in fear of crossing a boundary to help prevent it, and children no longer have that fear that most of us had at their age. I mean, I consider what happened to me psycologically damaging ( I got jumped by my entire fifth grade class one day, and that's not the worst of it), I was attacked and threatened weekly, and mentally tortured daily by students, but the school wouldn't take any part in reprimanding the children, instead opting to send me to a fucking counselor for help (it didn't). There was one teacher who sort of got tired of the way the students treated kids and acted overall, and she proceeded to repriman an entire 8th grade class. 27 13 year old children, and she told them they needed to grow the fuck up or something along those lines, wasn't class or year sadly. She was fired a few weeks later for said action. All the stupid parents were flippant that such harsh language was used...never taking a second to think that maybe if their fuckfaced kids were a little less spoiled and a bit more obedient or even CIVIL that maybe she wouldn't have had to do such a thing. Yeah swearing isn't necessary, but she gets fired because the parents forgot to teach their kids manners? How can we stop bullying when we aren't ready to allow it to be stopped?

Of course there's the other extreme of teachers abusing power and doing creepy shit because they can. Sexual relations with students, blackmail, intriguing punishments taken to far...I mean one teacher actually had an entire class degrade a student who was bullying other children. An entire class insulting a child, mind you a kindergarten class too. Not so much the bully, but the kids forced to insult him, imagine how that can fuck them up mentally?  Naturally that teacher was fired, and this was recent too, I caught it on yahoo news maybe a week ago? Fucking creepy shit.

Bullying is a really personal subject for me. I don't like it, I don't approve of it, and and unless it's this dumbshit "cyberbullying" which is then seriously your own fault anyway, I take only one part in it, the ending of it. Cyberbullying is retarded, if you are being picked on via social networks and email and such, block assholes or if it's real bad, delete your account and make a new one on whatever site or email acct. you're being harrassed on. If you're too stupid to keep your stuff private, you deserve a smack upside the skull. Fucking rule #1 of the internet is....there are no girls on the internet yes, but #2 is don't share personal information on the internet. If you want to make one of those cry for help videos on youtube, YOU DESERVE TO GET YOUR ASS HANDED TO YOU. It's like walking into a redsox fans' bar wearing a yankees t-shirt. You're gonna get your ass kicked for it. Use your brains.

Argh, this topic is making all my repressed childhood memories resurface, FUCK I hated grade school. One group of kids was making fun of me so badly one day in forth grade during lunch, I walked up to one of them, grabbed and twisted his arm until he screamed out in pain. Next day he came in wearing a sling. The bad part was that same day, him and his buddies were once again making fun of me. To this day, I don't know how I made it out of grade school alive. The odd thing is one of the few kids I could call a buddy actually did kill himself later in life. That fucked with me too, cuz that easily could have been me if I were a weaker person, and it crossed my mind many times.

Having been tortured by fuckheads like that when I was in school, I can safely say that this should not be tolerated. The parents need to be fucking disciplined, nevermind the children. When I was a kid, I respected my elders. I was always polite and courteous, even if they were fuckholes. Hell, I turn 27 in 2 weeks and I still respect my elders. What fucking moron parent would give their child any idea that this is okay in the slightest? 20 years ago, if I did that to an adult at my school, they'd slap me across the face, and then tell my mom, who would have my dad beat my ass down for that. Maybe that's a bit extreme but you know what, if I were on that bus I would have been the one telling the fucknuts to stop it or else (yeah my threats as a kid were pretty mild).

Society is getting pretty sickening.

Shame Legaia 2 was terrible.

SaGa Frontier is excellent fun, don't listen to this dude. It's a steep learning curve but it's an amazing romp once you get into it. I recommend starting as T-260G or Red first, they're pretty easy to run through as and give you a ton of mechs to play with, which are essentially easy mode in the beginning.

The translation felt more like a "drunken" review...

Fuck the music, I want the E-can. But not for 150 bucks.

Sophie is too fucking adorable. The peach skit....the peach skit...hahahahaha.

It's funny cuz I was thinking that when I saw a peach in the game too.
2024  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Playstation 1 RPGs on: June 21, 2012, 12:58:23 PM
how are wild arms 1+2? another long running series i have not played yet
Technically, it's up to five and has a remake of the first, as well as a side game, XF.

If you ever want to expand your video game horizons, try a gamefaqs genre search. Pick a system, genre, and just browse til you see a name that looks interesting.
2025  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: June 21, 2012, 04:22:17 AM
Hey, I know we don't always get along - so thanks. It's really nice of you to say that.
I've resolved to try and dial down the hyperbolic assholism, and it seems to be working so far! I also take zero pleasure in seeing misfortune befall others, regardless of how I view them.

And I got the job \(^^)/
Awesome. Congrats. :D
Hey, I personally enjoy your hot headed comments and asshole-ish replies to dopey people...

But I'll second the congrats to Lard. I also enjoy his dickbag commentary too, so his personal gain is something I approve of.
