The aspartame arguements remind me of the violent video game arguements. How many times have independant research groups "performed a study" on violent video games and the associated effects they have on children and their developmental understanding of right amd wrong and the like? How many times have we all rolled our eyes at said results, knowing full well they're more or less funded by "soccer moms" who just need a war to wage?

The FDA says aspartame is fine in its current rate of consumption, and I'm fine with that answer.

Well, in my case I weight 135 and I don't have any problem with blood sugar.
No real reason to chance on some weird thing my body can't even digest when I can have the real thing without any issue.

I take 7-Up usually. Not sure about content, but it tastes a lot less sweet than other colas.
Canada Dry ginger ale is also good.

A shoehorned love story. etc etc. etc.

Dude... there was a prologue dedicated JUST to how they met. o_o

I'd also argue it was one of the rare games that DIDN'T just make it a normal love story; for one, Lenneth was leading the reigns on it than some magical RPG waif getting doe-eyed for her hero.

Take Lucian out (or replace him with literally any random person in the prologue) and it's exactly the same game.  He's exists for sappy "pull on heart strings" apeal.

If you send away Lucian and don't go for the A ending or keep him in your party, wouldn't there be no love story?
I don't remember how this would go in-game.

I'm just throwing it out there that a lot of people do the diet soft drink solution because of the huge amount of sugar they're trying to avoid in a regular soft drink. In an odd turn of events, I personally just prefer the taste now, diet pepsi is far less....sugary tasting than regular pepsi.

I don't believe in aspartame myself. That stuff can't be good for you.

Fucking finally!

Assuming it keeps the date, it'll beat Bleach in knowing when to give it up.

Don't worry, the anime still needs to catch up and there will be some movies.
You won't run out of Naruto yet.

I just tried and its DOUBLE bullshit. You get a point multiplier based on score and rank.
Meaning someone with good cards can get way more points than someone with less good cards.

I couldn't get first place even once =( my cards suck.

How'd you even get an idolized SR, anyway?  Just dumb luck?  Seems to me the odds of getting two of the same SR are way too small...

Incredible hyper dumb luck. I got BOTH on the same 11 recruit.

I'm watching the P4A:U story on Youtube and god damn is it wordy for no reason.

Leveling my idolized SR Eri is pretty damn eternal...
Makes me wonder how long an idolized UR would take.

pretentious "mature" writing

I'm not sure where you'd get the 'pretend'.

Right at the beginning you get Arngrim's story which is one of the best:

Yeah, that's...actually what I thought was stupid and pretentious. The lesson there is that war is bad, and they force-feed that lesson down your throat with every single blatantly-written line. Maybe pretentious is the wrong word? How does 'stupid' sound?

Huh? There is nothing in there about how war is bad.

This is about a man who realized he spent his entire life without thinking; simply being a brute who built a superiority complex on the backs of everyone weaker than himself.
All the battles in which he thought he was a paragon were nothing but scuffles without sense or purpose.
Even if he was better than everyone else, he accomplished nothing.

ALSO!!!
IMPORTANT AS MOST PEOPLE MISS OUT ON THIS FEATURE!

In the Sacred Phase, when they say your einherjars did something, you can VIEW that something.
56  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: PS1 RPG Games on: October 05, 2014, 08:05:17 PM
the game sells "tragedy" very well, IMO

Exactly!
I love how the game points out the futility of one single life.
Everyone tries to be a hero but they all end up dying in vain.

Grey: So there was nothing I could do after all. I am worthless.

I'd argue getting through Lezard's castle (Ch4?) is the hardest thing the game throws at you.  You just need to remember to send one character up every chapter to keep Odin happy and you can even keep all the "sacred spoils" you get from each dungeon.

Even then, you can just use your entire supply of "tome of alchemy" there if it's too hard.

The Forest of Spirits is another pretty nasty spot because of the mandragoras that love to hit the back row.
I just bring a mage that has ice spells because they freeze pretty easily.

I need to get around to playing Valkyrie Profile.

Honest question: Does ANYONE ever bother cooking poptarts?

If it's a cold winter morning, sure.
