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.

Weight Gain 4000 TV spokesperson: Are you a 90 pound weakling?!?!?!

Cartman: I only weigh 90 pounds.

The subject of character relatability has been brought up often in this thread.  So I must ask the question for the discussion: Does a character have to be just like you in order to relate to them?  Does a character have to be just like you in order to be compelling?  If a character is a lot like you, would you dislike him/her because s/he displays traits in yourself that you dislike?  Can a character be relatable because they harbor traits of people you have interpersonal relationships with (who often may not be like you at all.)  

And coming to how the homosexual constituent at RPGFan would perceive characters in media, what if you have a homosexual character whose personality and attitudes towards life are opposed to yours?  What if you have a heterosexual whose personality and attitudes towards life are very similar to yours?  Which one is more relatable?  

Sand, I believe you made this point earlier.  

Personality is more than one's ethnicity, sexual orientation, or whatever.  I mean, I'm not going to relate to every Indian character in the media just because I so happen to be Indian myself.

I've read about 17 or 18 on that list, and none were of my own volition.  I take pride in my illiteracy.

Tekken Dark Resurrection for the PSP is awesome.  Even though Tekken is a "love to hate" series and often seen as overrated, I still think it's a fantastic series and each installment's been consistently good.  I hear so many people go on about how Tekken sucks and Soul Calibur's better but I feel like you can't really compare them.  I mean Tekken's a hand-to-hand fighter and Soul Calibur's a weapon based fighter.  And since I vastly prefer using female characters in video games, I have to give the nod to Tekken since it has far more females on the roster than Soul Calibur ever did, though Taki f'n owns.  (I will admit, though, that the Tekken anime sucked, Death by Degrees sucked, and I think the live action Tekken movie is going to suck.)  

Anyway, I'm doing story modes with some characters.  Anna and Nina are hysterical.  Anna's a slut, Nina's a bitch, and both fucking rule.  I'm learning how to effectively use Christie and her capoeira and though I can best many opponents with her unique style, Eddy remains a challenge because he's a capoeira fighter as well and he hits hard.  I'm getting better with Julie.  I still suck with Xiaoyu and Asuka.  I haven't tried Lili yet.

We still need Tales of Infinity.

And Pat, you can't forget the Infinity series by KID, you know Infinity/Never7, Ever17, Remember11, 12Riven...

If an RPG comes out called Infinite Infinity then I will go ugh.

Saw that on the front page of RPGFan this morning.  http://www.rpgfan.com/news/2008/1172.html

We need more sci-fi RPGs in outer space.  I like the idea of a customizable spaceship and amassing a crew.  Kinda like the castle in Suikoden.  Long as the exploration is deeper than Sigma Star Saga and there's more futuristic techy sci-fi stuff than a Star Ocean, sweet.

What a maroon.  I'm sorry, but any impound fees or anything will certainly cost less than another car.  Some points are worth proving, but not at the expense of mobility.  Guess I should cut off my legs after getting a ticket for loitering, huh?

Quote from: "Esper_Crusader"
Hey! Yoda is NOT a dick!


It's not blasphemy if you're a Sith, and I'm a Sith :P
5578  The Rest / General Discussions / Darth Vader attacks Jedi church in Wales on: May 14, 2008, 09:31:07 PM
Sith rules, Jedi drools.  And maybe I'm too much of a metalhead, but I initially read "metal crutch" as "metal church."  Metal Church being a decent, if cheeseball, metal band from back in the day.  

After Star Wars ep 3: Revenge of the Sith, I feel that the Sith have more integrity and honor than the Jedi do.  I mean
Obi Wan just leaves Anakin to die, whereas Palpatine goes back for him.  Palpatine and the Sith never gave up on Anakin.  The Sith showed integrity and loyalty towards their own.  Plus, I always thought Yoda was a bit of a dick.  Obi Wan too.

I still think Cloud from FF7 is among the most confused about his sexuality.  Throughout the game there are things that suggest he's hetero, things that suggest he's bi or bi-curious, and things that suggest that he's asexual.  I still remember Beans' old editorial about why he thought Cloud was a "flaming friend of Dorothy."  

Speaking of anime, anyone ever see Here is Greenwood?  Shun, despite looking like a pretty girl and initially teasing Kazuya with it, was actually the most well adjusted character.  I mean, that one dude was a little *too* obsessed with his motorcycle.

Picked up a couple of fighting games for PSP on the cheap: Darkstalkers and Tekken Dark Resurrection.  Wow, finally fighting games that are not only awesome on handhelds, but just plain awesome period.  I already adore Darkstalkers and this PSP Tekken game is fan-freaking-tastic.
