I'm calling out Bravely Default, you can drop that entire game with 4 ninjas and never look back, magic is fancy but not beating out melee.

FFXIII magic doesn't beat melee, but you need both to win, so it's a null statement.

Mass Effect...I'll give on that, combo attacks with special abilities (magic I guess) can be far more effective than basic bullet use, though that one sniper rifle that I can't remember the name of in Mass Effeft 3...the last one...

Dragon Age, I only have experience with 3 and I hear that mages can spank the game, but my Reaver wrecked face hard....idk there honestly, might give up there.

Fire Emblem, again, not an area I have experience with, but if we're talking necessity over usefullness, I call shenanigans.  I'm not saying magic is useless in games, btw, just it's rarely more potent than melee. When you have enemies that require melee damage or magic damage though, both are needed, one isn't better or worse.

Are we allowed to include handhelds cause if we're just talking consoles I don't think I can name five current gen RPGs.
Go for it.

I like the outfit, it really is reminiscient of Rutee, albeit a bit more flowy and tattered.

I guess it's safe to say that she's gonna use Azure Fang over Demon Fang....

my best skill is that I'm always the last guy upright when everyone else is KO'd and I'm great at fleeing
You spoony bard!

Yeah, I'd be the guy in the back row with the boomerang that can only cast buffs and status effects and everyone wishes they'd been given the option to just leave out of the party.  But then you suddenly get a genji glove from a random drop and guess who's the only one who can equip it? That's right...this guy! MASSIVE DAMAGE!!!
Ok, we got the tank, the light DD, the ranged DD...
Now we need a healer and a mage. Who's interested in our real life rpgfan rpg battle party?

Thanks guys.  I'm happy I can still ride this weekend, but it still bums me out that I can't attack climbs as I'd like to (I LOVE riding up hills) or do as long distances as I'd like.  At least I'm not completely sidelined. 

Heh, who'd have thunk it. An RPG forum is where we're talking about sports injuries.
It's a new age, Dincrest. Us role playing nerds are getting fit as fuck so we can attack the new age in groups of four with armor and melee weapons...

I wanna be the axe wielding heavy armored one-hit wonder.

Good news and bad news.

The good news: I'm looking forward to riding in the Tour de Cure - Philadelphia this weekend to support diabetes research. Diabetes runs in my family (my dad suffers from it) so this one's personal.

The bad news: Sadly, instead of riding 63 miles, I'll only be riding 35 because I've been nursing a Baker cyst in one of my knees for a couple months now. It's working itself out, but I don't want to take too many risks with it. Fingers crossed that I'll be in good form for the ACS ride next weekend, because I want to do the full 66 for that one.
Good luck man, I know how it feels to get sidelined from an injury or have to cut back from it. Pretty sure my deadlift excursion has left me with a semi-torn lat. Hurts like fuckall when I stand for a while, and sleeping is now problematic. If it's not at least semi normalized by this weekend, I'm gonna have to maybe see a doctor for some pain medication and maybe be sure I didn't actually do damage.

Seinfeld marathon...

Yup, still awesome.

...and what's the deal with all these TV show marathons!? I mean, are they to win an award for "most likely to be awkwardly referenced during a dinner party"? You know it used to be that you would watch a tv show once, only once, but if the preview sounded really good, you would record it. Of course when I say record it, I mean you would get that one weird guy in your building who knee how to actually use a VCR and smelled a little like like a cologne sample from a magazine....

Edit: Damn, did I ever sound stupid.

Anybody know a decent quality brand for headphone extenders?
Headphone extenders as in 3.5mm in to 3.5mm out?

Sorry lemme elaborate. What length do you want, what kind of headphones are you using, is it for a music listening device or a computer or a tv...

Thanks for replying D.

It is just to go from the headphones to the TV. The headphones are just a knockoff kind but work perfectly when connected to the TV. It is just the length that sucks. The link that natros showed were the types I was looking at although the perfect kind for me would be a cord with both sides like this.

My headphoes have a headphone jack(I think that is what they are called) and I thought one cord would have better quality than needing two although extenders would get the job done grand. I am worse than a grandparent being introduced to computers for the first time when it comes to these things so apologies if this makes no sense.


So you need 3.5mm male to male. Jack is what you insert the plug into, plug is what is inserted. Yeah, just amazon it, you can find decent sized 3.5mm cables for relatively cheap there. Just my advice, dish out a couple extra bucks for a mesh covered cable. They generally last longer and fail less.

Monoprice sells 3.5mm extensions for decent prices. Dunno if they do overseas, but I think amazon sells their cables too.

I honestly don't think there's any real way to tell if we are having any real inpact on climate change. The world operates at its own pace, one species isn't enough to disrupt the world's pace. At any point of the planet deemed us a threat, a global disaster would occur and obliterate us. George Carlin said it best, though I'm only paraphrasing...Earth's been around a long time, for us to think we'll make any impact on it is pretty conceited. Earth could wipe us out at any point, little more than a bug on it's surface.

I actually use my cellphones every time I have to update my PS3 =P
My router died a long time ago and I basically just put my cellphone as a portable hotspot, get my PS4 on that network and do the update.

I don't play online games on it ever anyway.
Using the phone as a hotspot is fine, but you still need to see the setup menu so you still need a monitor of some sort.

Unless, of course, you can blindly navigate through the ps4's menu, get into the set up menu options, find network connections, make the specific adjustments, then go to remote play options and set that up as well.

Dude, 100 bucks, go buy a computer monitor with an hdmi input
