Someones been doing homework

No, actually (slightly embarrassing fact) I love that quote so much I have it "on file"

I tell my son all the time how amazing it is how, out of all the minute possibilities over millions and millions of years, that we exist today.

"Life. They call it beautiful, they call it sad. And yet it remains that you and everyone else had the most extraordinary chances of ever existing at all. To me, that is a distant promise. To me that makes every second of life worth the wait, worth the hardships. Else I suppose I could have been in the void, having never existed at all."

Not just Trauma Center, I want a sequel for Trauma Team.

You only need to worry about getting silver. For dodo, put on some buffs and go to town, for crabs, wait by the trees where they spawn and nobody stands around.

Also for crabs turn down your SFX and Ambience volumes so that you can slaughter crabs to "Blinded by Light"

I agree with Starmongoose and others:

Yes. When I'm dead I will either be happily proven wrong or not be around to care I was right.

But I kind of like existing and it's a scary thought to think it's only temporary.

It took me this long and Yggdrasil's post to realize Naughty Dog and Nathan Drake have the same initials.

Ugh, why'd you guys have to talk about after death? Serious phobia of mine, like I get insomnia whenever I start thinking about stuff like that.

Anyway, I was juggled around to about three religions as a kid, so suffice it to say none of them stuck. I do, however, believe in a higher power. I'm also a fatalist. Maybe we're not guided to some divine destiny, but certainly our life plays out the way it is meant to play out.

I won't confuse anyone by trying to explain my thoughts on free will to any detailed extent, but basically I believe we can't escape the experiences and biology that shape our thoughts and decisions.

I guess my life's principles are guided more on my own personal philosophies than anything that could be considered religion.

My lack of friends is just fine with me. I have had one good friend that didn't leave it solely to me to maintain our friendship, and I lost contact with him when I left Michigan. As far as my experience goes, friendships and relationships are too much work with too little reward, and most will stab you in the back with a good enough reason.

...I swear I'm not a pessimist.

The only place I've noticed the anime/realism hybrid look a bit odd is with FF15. I find 13< to be more far enough on the "JRPG" side aesthetic wise that it doesn't seem out of place. But with FF15... I can't even point out what I don't like about it, it just seems like it would be weird to control character models that look so real by dashing about hither and tither.

My endgame experience so far:

"Yay! Grand Company Weapon!"
"Yay! Wanderer's Palace DL Weapon!"

Soon:

"Yay! Iftrit Weapon!"
"Yay! Garuda Weapon!"
"Yay! Relic Weapon!"

Seriously, the game throws way too many weapons at you endgame, and yet they still manage to not have any lateral progression there.

I liked the WW dungeons, I just meant there weren't a whole lot of them in the game.
717  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: November 13, 2013, 06:06:42 PM
If your favorite part of WW is the dungeons, prepare to be left wanting.

If they have the "Pokemon caught" jingle, I might have to get that just for my notification ringtone.

Yeah, Nier's still on my list of "current gen games I need to get" so I'll definitely check that out with some XMas money. And I'll also check out some of those reads, thanks a bunch Dice!

So I'm kind of digging the look of this game and there aren't a whole lot of games I'm looking forward to so far next year, but... Anyone know if I'd be totally lost plot-wise if I picked this up?
