I think capcom has enough pull for that kind of thing. They may not be selling 6 million copies in one day HOOGE, but their franchises pull in fairly large numbers, definitely respectable to say the least.

Not to defend the theory, but it wouldn't be completely outlandish to assume that some of these reviews are a little bogus, but not based on insetnamehere's suggestion of capcom buying them out. I remember reading an article years ago about how reviewrs try very hard to give favorable reviews to games because of a simple reason...if they cause a game to sell poorly due to the negative reviews, why would the company send them more games to review? I can understand smaller companies like xseed and atlus, who release fairly niche titles, but capcom or bioware or EA? These companies are huge, and to not get hands on access to their titles would generally hurt their magazines or sites. I know if ign didn't get a review in for DmC for example, a large number of people would stop looking there for information. His logic is a little reversed in my opinion, but it's not outlandish to think that some of the reviews are a bit too favorable, given the shit story and horrible voice acting.

However, I don't give a god damn in those regards, the gameplay is solid. I played dogma for many days with nothing but a desire to beat shit up, and DmC does combat waaaaaayyyyyy better.

So I tried my circuit training workout today, Started at 3 exercises, brought it to 6. I did each exercise first 20, then 16, then 12, 10, and finally 8 reps. Exercises were...
Military press (machine)
Lat Pulldowns (machine)
Seated bench press (machine)
Bicep curls (machine, started on second circuit set)
Tricep extensions (machine, started on third set)
Seated rows (machine, also started third set)

I gotta say, I nearly puked after each set with all 6 exercises, but damn did my body feel tight...hell it still does a bit. Gonna probably do this same thing for 3 more weeks then change exercises. Also, as I was fairly exhausted after that, I adjusted my bike run to a lower level and a longer duration, 20 minutes which resulted in 5.2 miles.

Screw Bane, I'm gonna be Superman by the time I'm done!

Me cosplaying as a fatty at the gym...

I have an allergy to shellfish, so I sort of get how you feel. Clams, shrimp, lobster, (real) crab, and scallops all cause me to have breathing trouble when I eat them, and that's like one scallop or a single shrimp. I used to eat fresh crab like it was going out of business, stuff was amazing. Sad times now...

Dude, don't even get me started about the Ni No Kuni itch....I thought it came out last tuesday. I scheduled the entire week, work gym and free time, around this game. I gave items in FFXI away for the week, lend out gil, spent all my excess cash in game....I was prepped for this week. I get to lamestop to pick it up and receive the bad news.....I nearly flipped my shit. When I left, some beggar asked me for change, and I told him, and I quote "Fuck off, I don't have any fucking money for your broke drunk ass, go get a fucking job you bum!". I still don't feel bad about it, but damn if I think I was extreme about it.

This game...it has driven me mad.

Fuck you, ya skinny bastard.

I'm sorry, that was the ni no kuni itch talking.

So I'm gonna try something new on my fifth day at the gym for a couple visits. It's basically a circuit training set, all machines, and it's gonna be every major muscle group, at least in theory. I'm thinking something like military press/incline bench/tricep pushdowns/lat pulldowns/leg press/leg extensions/calf raises. Since its all machines, I'm hoping for more of a cardio-ish feel to it, maybe burn some more fat on top of the bike riding now. It's not to say that what I'm doing is not enough, but I am feeling more energetic now, and want to do more.

And more....

Yeah, I know, but it's less what she thinks and more what I think. I feel like a slob, like a sack of waste, etc. I want this change for myself, because I want to feel like a greater person. I am getting this way to muster the courage to ask her out, but it's not because she won't say yes now, but because I don't want her to accept me as I am, when I could be better.

Course, if that whole situation fails, then ladies....I'll look like this...

I wonder when we'll actually focus on cracking down on guns than videogames.  Much harder to work up the courage to kill a man with your bare hands than it is a gun.

Ah well, blah blah blah, yadda yadda yadda.

I'm sure it will all be said, so I'll just post Stephen Colbert's thoughts on it:
Of course, you have to fear the psychos who actually prefer the feel of choking the life out of their victim or or literally bashing their face in with nothing more than their barehands.

It's not an rpg, but shadow complex is a good quickie to occupy yourself for a few days. Dust works too, as does bastion.

Or be like me and occupy extra free time at the gym to make up for the inevitable 4 days you will miss playing this.
2051  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: January 19, 2013, 01:36:09 AM
Actually my training is two fold...

First goal, look like this.

Second goal, which is sort of the real drive to look like that (albeit without the mask and with hair) is to ask a girl whom I've had a crush on for quite some time out.

810 lb leg press today.

You know, if I could have any serious vain appreciation of any part of my body, it'd be my legs. I have legs made for shorts....too bad I have a gut made for entertaining small children via belly flops at a pool.

First nighttime shots.  All I can say is, wow.  It... actually looks like nighttime.

Also, note the not-so-subtle troll towards Final Fantasy XI players at the bottom.
And that's why my smithing still sits at a shitty level 28 after nearly 3 years of play.

I've upped my gym visits to 4-5 days a week, and do 10 minutes of cardio on arrival and after my workout now. I've lost about 10lbs total, though with the heavy lift training I'm gaining mass, leading me to be very surprised when I look at a scale and see 380 lbs...

Anyways, I feel better than ever, and am now bench pressing 260 lbs....1 time....with a seriously large amount of effort being used...
2055  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: January 15, 2013, 10:13:40 PM
Argh, this has ruined my whole week. All I wanted to do was play this game, SSSOOO BBBAAADDD. I'm beyond disappointed now.

Quick edit:this picture is making it hard not to giggle....
