- Baldurís Gate II

I don't get the hype for the game, maybe if I liked spellcasters... There are many annoyances that weren't present in BG1: you're railroaded into a bunch of crap, party members interrupt you to talk nonsense, little exploration (most of it is done in Athkatla and thereís always a friendly NPC ready to shove a quest your way), the story seems to be about the same old "elves did it!", battles devolved into "debuff and kill the mage", even the music took a hit. I was never once bored during BG1 but itís getting hard to keep my interest up in BG2. Still, I want to see this one through.

My favorite part was

Code:
when the PC turned into the Slayer and killed Minsc. Dude is so annoying, Boo is his only saving grace.

Iím somewhere in the Underdark.

There are enough NPCs in the game that you can easily ditch those you don't like.
I usually kill Minsc on the spot when I meet him.

Speaking of shooting... there's one in Munich right now.

blurb

What are the legalities involved in mailing packaged puke to someone?
Is it covered under bio-hazard or is it A-OK?

Who was the worst kid show MC?

I'll take a picture of myself with a sign that says literally whatever your reviewer wants.

Should this happen, I suggest ę I'm a proud Trump voter. Ľ

Man, that is one hot teacher.
She actually looks better casual than twin-tail maid though.

Finally got to this week's episode of Dragon Ball Super and... it's possibly the best Dragon Ball episode ever made.
Top 3 for sure.

Toriyama is really killing it with his return to the serie.
I'm pretty happy Hollywood demolished Dragon Ball with that shit movie and made him come back to it.

Ah! I always forget Annubi is in Canada.

I'm in the French part. I understand it can be quite scary for some here.

I'm starting to wonder how much it would cost me to negotiate a green card (or whatever it's called up north) marriage with a Canadian fanner (regardless of their gender)

Do you like cleaning?
Also, I need a play buddy for Divinity Original Sin 2 when that comes out.

I played VP before watching any Pokemon so this is all surprising to me.

I honestly think the easiest way to find love is to stop looking for it

I can guarantee this doesn't work...

Also, never having dated isn't so bad if you considered that I went on 2 dates (ever) and both times, the girl was for what I could gather completely uninterested and wanted it to be over as soon as politely possible.
That's soul crushing.

A lot of japanese players have been put into losers bracket by US ones already. Momochi's already out and Justin Wong just eliminated Daigo. Moment 37 revenge.

Would be funny if Daigo repeats the last tournament where he cruised the loser bracket from start all the way to #1.

I didn't play it a ton, but I did enjoy RO. My biggest problem with ToS is that I felt it didn't try hard enough to bring the RO formula into a modern age. While there were some modern conveniences, I felt like it could have implemented them better without losing the charm of RO. Also, character building and class changing felt needlessly obtuse.

You pretty much want to tinker around a class simulator before making your character.
As for stats, yeah... I read guides and I'm not even sure what I should be doing.

I understand that they copied RO for stats having augmenting returns, but it just doesn't work in ToS since every point is worth the same as opposed to RO where the cost was incremental.
So basically, it feels like you're doing wrong if you don't dump everything in one stat.
You shouldn't make balanced builds feel nerfed =/

I'm playing some ToS and it's OK.
Although I did play Ragnarok Online for over a decade so I'm definitively not impartial.

I think you're better off not seeing the finale of Xenosaga 3.
It's so ridiculous, I kinda wanted everyone to die.
