They actuallt look like FF designs from across the ages. Golbez to Seymour to Type-0 to Squall...all smooshed into angsty teenagers.

^ I don't think you CAN find that outfit.  The shirt's just a slight variation on one of the "Tee" models, but that skirt with stockings... I don't think you can get that as a separate piece of gear.
Where do you even see her in the game? Never seen that NPC before.

next season is gonna be weird...

Rumors are already circulating about some Flashpoint Paradox story arc. I don't know enough about the comics or animated movie/cartoon releases to add any input here. The season finale, I'll admit was a little underwhelming, but there were some good parts as well. I wonder what the Flash did that may have resulted in altering Arrow or Supergirl (I guess they're shared now in the multiverse?). Speaking of Supergirl, I watched the pilot episode and couldn't get beyond the cheesiness, so I may have to pass on that one.
Supergirl improves a lot later in the season, but getting there is a chore.

If it is gonna be ala flashpoint paradox, Supergirl wouldn't be impacted at all, and arrow would only be affected if they decided to follow things in Flash's newly modified world, assuming they don't intend to make it permanent.

Season 2 finale of the flash...

Back on Xenoblade X for a minute.  Have you ever refused a video game request only to send you into an infinite loop of "will you please join"?  Not Xeno X!  They pull a double negative on you.

In one of the Paper Mario games you can get a Game Over at the very beginning if you say "no" over and over when they're asking Mario to save their world.  It's quite hilarious.
Metal Saga did something similar on the ps2. They ask you if you want to go out on a big adventure or stay home and be a mechanic I think. If you chose option B, you got an ending about how you grew old and got married and died a plain old man, then the credits rolled...fun game.

^Because you can't or because you don't want to?

My haps... The magazine manager is trying to organise a gettogether, but I'm not sure if I want to go. I know I should go. I'm 'important' and they want me to prove I'm not a jerk, but I'm no good at this social stuff. The last meet-up I liked was the one where I could hide out in the kitchen and play strategy games with the girlfriend of one of the writers (which meant all the women there ended up in the kitchen. oops.).

Hey that sounds like fun!

Ever since a bunch of my gaming friends moved and stuff I miss being able to do the random things like that.

That said those were all definitively board game silly events and didn't at all represent a kind of "event" in any serious sense (Oh look get a nice dress and do this and be cool) because those things all SUCK! =-P
It's like the saying "better to have gamed and lost than to have never gamed at all"... I wish I had friends for that kind of thing, but my small group of buddies consists of a fighting gamer, a sports gamer, and a shooter gamer, with a few casuals mixed in. It's a dull life I lead.

Went to my uncle's house today to help fix an electrical issue he was having, and he tells me I look good, like I've been losing weight. Normally this would make my day, but right now I have been weighing myself on a scale at home and though I have lost a few pounds over the last 2 weeks, I have actually gained about 20 or 39 since last I saw him. Thing is, it's all muscle. Seriously, I've been checking myself out and all over my upper body aside from my enormous gut I'm getting gigantic muscle growth. It'a so strange to see shoulders and a chest now instead of just more flabby flesh. I'm sorry if this sounds like gloating or ego or something, it's quite the opposite. I'm dumbfounded by all this, i've been a fat kid for my entire life. I still am, but there's finally this glimmer at the end of the tunnel where I can see myself changing and it's....frightening. I don't know what it's like to be "in shape" and it's a really strange concept. Even now I feel cockier, like I'm something special, which I've never felt like before...

First world problems,huh?

I kind of thought the second half of FF6 (Very little character specific dialogue, just a bunch of side quests smattered about) was the bigger disappointment as far as incomplete goes...

Hold up:

An entire new world map, new music, and tons of non-linear plot progression and quests feels "more incomplete" to you than walls of text with no gameplay?

No, it's all more complex than that... naturally.

I'm just saying instinctually Xenogears feels more complete to me than FF6. In fact it was arguably ahead of it's time in transitioning from games purely focused on the gameplay to ones focused on the artistic and aesthetic elements just as much.

Even Nintendo with Skyward Sword or whatever is going to get you around 2 hours of cinematics and stuff.

I still wish Xenogears Disc 2 was more playable, but the directions the story went were in many ways extremely interesting and sometimes compensated for that fact.
Interesting =/= good all the time. I mean, the gambit system in FFXII is interesting (actually it was damn near brilliant), but it didn't make the game any good (opinions, etc). The telling of the story from the perspective of the characters in the story was a novel idea, but it took what was an astoundingly engrossing world to that point and cut it all out. Yeah, no, xenogears disc 2 was a travesty of an otherwise perfect experience.

Disc 2 of Xenogears is anything but "fine".  It's indefensible.  People only hand-wave it because Disc 1 is legendarily good.  But Xenogears is certainly the most-praised incomplete game ever, I'd have to say.

Disk 1 isn't that fantastic either since Kisev + Sewers and Tower of Babel exists.

You didn't like Tower of Babel or Kislev Aeolus? I thought Babel was super creepy and interesting to be honest...

I like FFT too though so Idk... well and Xenosaga Eps II which a lot of Xeno fans dislike apparently.

Although since we're on the topic of FFT I personally preferred Tactics Ogre: LUCT to FFT.

I kind of thought the second half of FF6 (Very little character specific dialogue, just a bunch of side quests smattered about) was the bigger disappointment as far as incomplete goes...
I think he's referring more to the actual progression through each of those dungeons. Babel especially annoyed many people due to those terrible 3D-esque platform jumps that just sucked terribly.

My problem with people working in places like Walmart and Mcdonalds and the like is generally, they don't take their job seriously. It's all nonsense to them and they treat people dismissively or just plain poorly. I get that it's shit wages and you work fairly hard for what you're paid, but don't give me an exasperrated sigh when I ask for help finding an item or when I order fries with no salt. If you don't like your job, find something else. If you can't be bothered, don't be pissed when people take your shitty attitude and respond in kind.

Also, and no offense to you glassjawsh, but the "buy local" approach really doesn't apply in all situations. Chain supermarkets will almost ALWAYS have better pricing for items. I mean hell, I have 3 different chain supermarkets in my neighborhood, and a Target within 2 miles as well. The only non-chain grocery store is 4 miles away, charges at least 20% more per item, and has a vastly inferior selection of products. I'll generally avoid fast food places now, though past 10pm they're the only places open to buy food from, but honestly, supermarkets are just better to buy from in my opinion.

Re: Tonight's episode of The Flash

Though it may make me sound sadistic, I kind of like

Caitlin's PTSD

as a new element, and hope it continues to add some flavor to her character into S3.

On the other hand, the whole "All dopplegangers are a mirror image of their other selves" loophole was complete and utter bullshit that would only make any sense if there were only 2 Earths, which they've already mentioned is not the case in the show's own established lore.
Well, I will defend the logic that earth 1 and earth 2 seem to share a lot of opposing elements...so the concept that ...nah I can't even defend that. Poor writing at its finest.

New one: the ice-cream was good. Didn't notice much of the brownies (I only found one chunk near the end of my portion) but salted caramel is the best.

Not so great: I was up late reading and fell asleep with my hair down, thinking "What's the worst that could happen?" I have regrets. My brush has regrets.

I had the Caramel Core flavor myself recently, pretty tasty!

That caramel core ice cream is hands down my favorite dessert ever. I wanna dump a pint on it on a gigantic hot brownie and slather it in whip cream and oreo cookies.

I imagine this is how I will die.

I feel kind of silly because this is a hardcore RPG forum after all and it's probably not needed to be said but..... Xenogears is totally worth playing IMO even now. So if Xeno has you wanting more Xeno...!

Although I must confess I think it may be somewhat inaccessible.. not even sure if it's on PSN.

But yes I can speak for the game itself wow... I re-visited it like... I don't know 5-6 years ago or so which is quite a long time but the game itself is from 1998 and I found it rather undiminished with age.

Its on PS3 and PSP (Vita too?) for $10 but yea its the greatest story ever told in a RPG IMO. Miang is my all time favorite character.

Miang! Interesting choice... I was kind of always fond of Billy and Elly =-)

But yeah playing that game the first time was just such a wild and intense experience.
Disc 2 was a sick joke comparitively though. That whole thing with telling the story from Elly and Fei's perspectives was stupid. Really killed the whole thing.

LOL, I thought my intentional overreaction was large enough to be clearly comical.  Figured that was a more interesting post than "What on earth is absinthe ice cream?"
Yeah, and besides, he's a prude, not a saint, lol.

I'd try absinthe ice cream...doubt I'd like it though. Not big on alcohol flavor.
