Gym today, chest stuff (cuz no one cares about other areas except legs, right?). Benchpress was no increase in weight, but I did a larger amount of reps. 260 twice unassisted, 3 times with a spotter. Pretty solid, but my big move was incline bench press, which is naturally more difficult, and I did it after 2 other workouts. 225 3 times with no spot....I was pleased. I also wanted to make up for a poor week last week and tried doing some shoulder work, until I noticed a guy doing deadlifts. I had the crazy notion to try some clean and jerk. For those uninitiated btw, clean and jerk is basically a deadlift that rides into a military press. Now, I have mentioned this before, but I weigh 380 pounds. This, my friends, is a FUCKTON of fattiness, so any exerciser that encompasses me starting from a crouched position to a standing, like squats or deadlifts, is natively more difficult, so I only set up 145 lbs for the exercise. My first set was 5 reps and I was winded, 3 minutes later another 5 reps...then 3...then 2...last one I could barely even lift it over my head. Probably would have been better to not have done a full workout BEFORE doing Olympic style weight lifting, but hey, I'm tired and not broken, so I guess it's okay.

A funny note, I walked off to a small room for classes, and tried to level out with some pushups. I had placed my hands on the floor and took up a pushup position....and promptly fell down 3 seconds later. Before anyone says HAHA fatty, before I started working out I could successfully do 20 pushups with some effort. Basically, my chest was completely fatigued and I found it funny that I couldn't even hold myself up.

I felt kind of stupid last night, I had exchanged a few cards for those initial merit boosts and was saving my cards for later, thinking that the other ones opened up as the game progressed...

Well little did I know that you had to buy everything in the tier one line for the next teir 2 line to open up lol..

Anyway just thought I would mention this in case somebody else did this.
Yep, this was covered earlier in the topic too. You can't advance til both requirements are met, story advancement and all prior purchases made.

It's not really a spoiler, it's pretty common knowledge that her name is Milla Maxwell. Her character entry in the manual even says she's the great spirit. Now if I told you that....wait, that'd be a spoiler, hee hee hee.

I just wanted Pascal to jump in front of the camera and pose when that was happening....

Besides, Milla's backstory is she's really the great maxwell spirit. She's lived in semi isolation all her life, and only came out to deal with matter involving the lesser spirits. She's supposed to evolve as the game progresses.

Yeah tell me about it. I can still put out respectable numbers with my double attack Ogresse, but it requires a lot of effort.
2377  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: March 09, 2013, 05:05:03 PM
Now hold on, that skirt is REAAAAAALLLY short, and I don't think she's gonna be able to pack any extra baggage there.

Seriously, I'd let Milla beat the hell out of me. She's purdy, hee hee.

Pardon the entire upcoming post as it will be entirely in caps and full of rage...


I love Young Justice.

Seriously, Milla's voice....holy crap she sounds like a dude. But she sounds so hot still.

I didn't mention apoc for another solid reason when I talked about entropy. U.less you're a perfectionist or a career job, making an apoc over ragnarok is just silly. 9/10 times you're not gonna be solo in game, so being able to keep yourself alive is unecessary. To skip the ragnarok in favor of survivablility is silly as a drk. That being said, an apoc user can actually use entropy quite well. Matter of fact, an apoc user will probably outdamage a reso spam on a non-relic/emp drk or a fulgurante with occasionally attacks twice drk. Honestly, I'd recommend liberator over apoc at tgis point simply for making resolution better. Liberator augments absorbs spells, so add that on your absorb str, and watch the numbers soar.

I like shijin spiral, btw. The plague effect, coupled with chi blast and the tp inhibit merit effect make encounters very safe. Plus, dex is easy to come by on monk.

I slept late, woke up, and vegetated in front of my tv playing video games. I haven't done this in weeks....felt good.

I guess I should point out that I texted my sister and said happy international ladies day. I'm such a good brother....though I forgot to text my other sister :(

Plus, you can store an extra pair of shoes for.whrn your heels are just killing you. Don't ask me how I know this, I just do.

Entropy is tolerable. It can deal nice damage, more than any other scythe ws outside of relic and mythic and maybe empyrean. The mp recovered is pretty awesome too, great when you're fake tanking and spamming dread spikes and drains/absorbs. The problem is that first of all, it's an intelligence modifier, and dark knights do not have that great of an int. stat, and the gear needed to improve it is stupid hard to come by. The other problem is if you're on drk, tbere is no demanding reason not to be using greatsword and resolution almost exclusively. The damage difference is pretty obvious. I'm a career dark knight, so I have both, but entropy honestly sees much less use than resolution. It's basically a matter of logic. Dark knights are damage dealerz, so you want to deal the utmost damage you can, and you won't do it with a scythe.

Stardiver is pretty good, though dragoons are still scoffed at most of the time. I'd say if you plan on using drg a lot, get it. Dragoons are pretty capable of good damage, and stardiver is handy for that. If you're gunning for warrior at any point, I would recommend getting an ukonvasara, as Ukko's Fury will deal more damage than upheaval, unoess you can stack retarded amounts of vitality. I actually gave up Upheaval because I couldn't be bothered gearing for it, and eventually I'll have a ragnarok which warrior can equip, so reso all day.

Wait a sec, a day DEDICATED to women? What about the other 364 days of the year?

Nyuck nyuck.
2385  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: March 08, 2013, 01:35:52 PM
For resolution, absolutely. The elemental gorget/belt will improve not only your overall damage, but the consistency of high damage. As the great Hathen has already mentioned, the nerdgastic math aside, they improve the base formula for the damage per hit, and since resolution A: is a five hit ws and B: has a maxed out mod of 100% str, the ele gorget/belt really benefit it greatly. If you really wanna have some fun, try souleater with it...just watch out when half your health dissappears.
