If youíre interest, I could let you review our game when itís ready :)

Hey, thanks for keeping me posted on your projects.  As interested as I am and would love to take you up on that offer, I'll have to decline.  I haven't made this public or anything, but today's actually my last day on the RPGFan staff.  Real life circumstances such as finishing grad school, looking for a real job, and having no idea where I'll be living in the next couple of months...

Both consoles will have exclusive content as far as JRPGs are concerned.  With other types of games, 360 will have stuff like Theseis, which is a deep adventure by a European developer.  So the 360 may have a good cross-section of worldwide stuff.  

I'm in a similar situation.  Can only afford one new console, and which one to get?  One genre of video game I like as much, if not more than, RPGs is fighting.

So perhaps if you look at other genres of video game you like outside of RPGs and graphic adventures, that will make things clearer and help you come to a more solid decision.

Eh, Weezer's best albums were still Blue and Pinkerton.  

Anyway, here's "Swimming Pool" by The Nerve.  Joe Nerve, the bassist, plays with Bumblefoot and a bunch of others and I bought my Warwick off of him.  When I first watched the video's bedroom scenes, I was like "THAT'S MY BASS!!!!"  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMZ-t4Fc85U

Sorry Joe, but you ain't getting your old Warwick back.

I do have to agree that the English dubbing in the trailer's pretty atrocious.  And I'm usually pretty forgiving of that.

I just came back from Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull.  (I don't need the whole "kingdom of..." in the title.  It's better like this:P)  I flippin' loved it.  Wonderful Indiana Jones installment.  It's like the expanse of time between the films never was.  Nothing was overwrought or anything.  Were there segments where I had to consciously suspend my disbelief?  Oh absolutely, but I've had to do that for every Indy film, especially Temple of Doom.  

*smacks lips* I could really use some snake surprise and chilled monkey brains right about now.  mmm mmm mmm delicious!  (though if I'm not mistaken, snakes and monkey brains are actually delicacies in some parts of Africa.)

I'm such a Namco fighting junkie.  When I'm at my folks' house, I'm often playing Soul Calibur on my Dreamcast (still the best console ever for fighting games.)  When I'm not, I'm playing Tekken 4 or 5 on my PS2, or Tekken Dark Resurrection on my PSP.  

I was debating over which next gen system to get.  I was almost sold on an Xbox 360 until I looked at the fighting games, which is one of my favorite genres and the reason my Dreamcast has stuck around.  Soul Calibur 4's on both, but Tekken 6 is Sony exclusive and since I adore the Tekken series far more than any Dead or Alive game, Tekken 6 has sold me on a PS3.  And since the PS3's Soul Calibur 4 has Vader instead of Yoda and I never really liked Yoda, I still win out.

Quote from: "D-Rider"
Testament - Souls of Black

Trying to get in the mood for their new album, assuming I can be bothered to go get it. :P

Testament has a new album coming out?  Sweet!  I love Testament.  They're, like, one of the only 80s thrash band that didn't pussy out with age. They actually got heavier.  Is Chuck Billy still singing with them?  I remember he had cancer a few years back.  Still one of the best vocalists in metal I can think of.

My SOTM is one that I wrote.  It's called "Heart in a Vice."  Like any emotional song, it was inspired by a bad relationship I was once in.  

Relationships in the movies
Or on TV shows like Dawson's Creek
Are a sham, can't you see?
Prefabricated fantasy
Why do you buy into this?
It's not how the real world works
You're an idealist, I'm a realist
And because of that I'm a jerk

You molded me
In your ideal
Image of how
A boyfriend should be
Ignored my pleas
How do I feel
As you squeeze
The life out of me

Didn't want to
Be alone
Longest time
(The) sun never shone

Warped ideas of perfection
Are not only a male domain
Just 'cause you gave me an erection
I'm not a slave without a brain
For a while I compromised
My soul I let you ransack
But now I realize
And I've come to claim my soul back

'Cause I can't breathe
You stifle me
Locked me in a cell
And threw away the key
But I will shout
Claw my way out
I don't care if I bleed
But I gotta be free

I don't care if
I'm alone
I'll find a way
To atone
I'm with me
Better than I was with you
I'm with me
Better than I was with you

I *think* 1-3 was a trilogy with the Erdrick saga.  4-6 were a trilogy.  I think 7 and 8 were standalone titles.  I believe people were just saying the word "trilogy" since it's three DQ titles that are coming our way, including a couple that were never released before in the US.

Finished The Bouncer with Kou.  Now playing New Game Plus with Sion.

So you think Steve Harris (Iron Maiden) and Alex Webster (Cannibal Corpse) are fast bassists?  Jayen Varma is said to be one of the world's fastest.  I believe he set a record at playing 36 notes a second.  

A short clip about his speed:

Here he does some funky groovy stuff:

Extended stuff where he plays and talks about his technique:

I wub the bargain bin.  Scored The Bouncer for 5 bucks, Killer 7 for 5 bucks, Tekken 4 for 8 bucks, and Romancing SaGa for 10 bucks.  I'm playing The Bouncer right now.  I can see why the game got the negative press that it did and I would have been quite angry had I paid full asking price for it.  But for 5 bucks, the game's really fun.  It has that gritty, urban, semi-futuristic type setting that I wish I could see more often in RPGs, particularly JRPGs.  Tetsuya Nomura's character designs in the game are so wrong they're right.  Bodyguard missions in any video game bite big wind, and I'm in one right now.

Album of the moment once again.  I've been listening to the "Follow the Reaper" album by Children of Bodom a lot this past week.  I'm on a manjor FTR kick.  It and Hatebreeder are easily Bodom's best albums.

Alisha, the Megami Tensei games are notorious for instant death spells like the hama and mudo spells.  That's one reason why in the early going, Yomotsu Shikome was a livesaving Persona.  I was able to fuse a spell from every element unto her and she has dark resistance.

Playing Tekken Dark Resurrection and dusted off Soul Calibur on Dreamcast.  Dreamcast is still the best console ever for fighting games, IMO.
