The only thing anyone should grind is metals, hopefully with both the axe critical for Yangus and spear critical for hero unlocked. Without those it can take a while. As for how far to grind... well, even to 99 shouldn't take over 100 hours with beating the final final bonus boss and getting extra ending, but that is overkill. It is doable with like hero at lv 63 iirc, when he gets the special skill. Anymore is just for skill points.

The one thing the game should do is reveal the skills, so players can plan a bit without a guide. Other than that it is fairly intuitive, especially the alchemy system, so I don't think it would be wise to mess with that too much.
In my defense, I played through it only once, and I did drag it out with the monster hunting and battling, and a lot of alchemy creations. Also, trying to do it without a guide for the most part was a challenge. If I ran through it now I doubt I'd hit anywhere near 100 hours.

Gymface Ftw.

Also, this is the photo I am using for okcupid atm. My sister suggested it, she thought it was funny.

Running into weird people on the internet is hardly a shocking turn of events. I would assume it goes double for dating sites.
Agent, out of curiosity, what exactly did she write to you (and did she write first). How many times did you really check her profile and what avatar did you end up using?
Fuggit, details incoming...

Ok, I had been glancing over profiles on okcupid via quickmatch and saw this one cute girl so I scrolled down to see if she had anything interesting to say about herself or interests. I wasn't reading everythinv, just looking for things that stood out (i.e. video games, cartoons, Rick and Morty, etc). Towards the end I caught something that really clicked...Why is FFVIII underrated. Now it's by no means my favorite ff title, that still goes to Tactics and VI respectively, but I like VIII and also wonder why people think poorly of it. So I liked her profile. In the quickmatches, you can't see names or send messages so after I liked her profile I jumped over to it again from the liked menu (fucking convoluted I know) and sent her a message.

"Anyone who thinks FFVIII is underrated has to be at least mildly awesome. Just wanted to share that."

So after I sent the message, I decided to go back and get a deeper look at her page, less skimming this time. It turns out I really gelled with a lot of stuff she had put up about herself and interests. For some reason while I was reading my phone bugged out so I restarted it and when it came back on, I went back to finish checking out her page, and this time take a look at the other photos she put up. 3 direct visits to her page.

About midnight I get this. "Looking at my page 3 times in under 24 hours. That's creepy Dude."

My reply. "Fair enough. I just felt you were interesting enough to look over again. I apologize"

Fesl free to critique, I honestly felt like what I said was really nice. Her reply really did feel like some grade school bullshit, like I'm a pervert for looking at her too many times or something and she's just like "oh my god, EWWW". It's probably more in my head than her meaning it like that, but regardless, how do you get annoyed by page visits? Are you not trying to find somebody? I'm dying for more page visits...I actually got (oddly) happy when I saw a dude visited my page. No I wasn't interested, but hey it's nice to see people looking.

As for the avatar I'm using, I'll put it up in the rl pics thread in a minute, it's kinda big and I don't wanna blow the Haps thread length up.

@Dice if you giggled,then my job was completed. If anyone else rolled their eyes with an elaborate groan, bonus points :)

Hell I like most of you here enough that in a public situation where someone accosted you or was getting physical I'd step in and make sure you weren't getting whacked. It's the only thing I can safely say I do well,  better than most anyway. I'm a real life tank.


Haha...tip.

you should leave your computer on her page and make your computer spam the f5 key or whatever
Dude, this is why I fucking love you like a brother.

I dunno if I'd take a bullet for you, but I'd easily take a hard punch to the face for you man.

dang that's so sweet. :')
Last thing a friend said to me was "stop texting me"...   This is way better
Dice I'd take wicked slap from a sassy black lady for you. Mostly because I feel strongly that sassy black women as in fact thd most powerful beings on the planet and one slap from them would destroy smaller, less sassy women and let's face it, this place would suck a lot more without you around.

Also because that thing you said just made me feel sad and now I want nothing more than to cheer you up.

3 times doesn't seem strange to me. I would think that'd be well within a normal range (I say with zero internet dating experience :P).

If we were talking 10+ I might start to worry.
FUCKING THANK YOU!

Seriously, you guys are better than therapy. Cheaper too.

So apparently checking out a person's profile more than once is considered creepy when using dating sites.

Yeah, this is gonna be hard...

Screenshot + paste in Paint + save as png

Enjoy the untracked creeping.
Meh, I just find it so...idk, conceited. Like, what the hell,you are on the same site as me for obviously similar reasons. If I'm going out on a limb attempting to make even a friendly connection, I'd like to know what I'm walking into, so I check and double check. The fact that I got called creepy for visiting a person's profile page 3 times in one day...Idk, if it were flipped I'd be stoked to see someone was interested in some degree. I mean I went back BECAUSE she seemed interesting. Wouldn't you all be happy to know that the purpose of you being on a dating site, to attract other people, was fucking working?

I mean if she wasn't interested,  a simple "Sorry dude, not digging you" would have sucked, but pissed me off way less.


This shit is gonna drive me to drinking...or explosive fits of anger.

How long is it? My final Xenoblade Chronicles savefile ended up being about 150 hours.
It's been a bloody good 8 years probably since I played it, but I recall it really stretching on, especially if you do all the extra stuff and the postgame dungeon.I recall weeks of playing it, easily accruing 100+ hours on my game file.

One of the few games where I actually had to grind a bit for some bosses.

I found something awesome on okcupid. A pretty girl who thinks FFVIII is underrated. I didn't think this existed as a possibility aside from Dice. Maybe this won't be a terrible waste of time and self induced terror.

Now hopefully she'll hit me back :)

It's been almost 2 years and my girlfriend still thinks that games are a waste of time (I actually almost made a topic about it on here to see if anyone else has dealt with something similar). So you'd have my envy if you land this one.

Except I generally find people who are that specific on their dating profiles are the ones that are a bit on the crazy side. Don't get me wrong, I wish Agent D the best, but I had an OkCupid account for a while and I don't think I met one sane person through that site.

You may be right. They may be crazy.
But it just might be a lunatic he's looking for.
...Wow, I didn't think anyone here knew lyrics from Billy Joel songs. Mesh, you just gained like 50 rep points for that.

You do know what they say about people who think everyone else is crazy, right?
=P
They're billionaires and make stupid things like instagram and facebook?

I've been off for the last 2 weeks...I'm fucking bored out of my mind and am ready to devolve to old "BAD" habits, like 5am video game splurges, midnight gym runs (horrible for the body), and the worst of them all, boredom eating. I got good about not eating simply because I was bored, but that's fat guy mentality. You get bored and you start thinking you feel hungry...

I meant to add that I'm totally thinking daytime is overrated.

I was having trouble picking a good photo to put up on the profile. I almost put my avatar pic here on it, accidentally. After finally realizing that was dumb, I put up 3 pics I liked enough not to be embarassed by.

My sister yelled at me all night, I kept looking at the hostess of the applebees we were eating at. She was really cute.

DO NOT post selfies!  It makes you look like you don't have any friends.  Have someone else take a few pictures of you at various locales and put on a few clean shirts.
I don't have any group I really like, aside from with my sister. Gonna have to go make some...
