Elru, you'll find that quite a few of us would list Basch as our favorite FF12 character.  I didn't get that far into the game, but Basch was awesome.

Best I can offer you Dag is some encouragement in the pursuit of fulfillment in your life.  Loss of any kind is a pain in the neck to deal with and I hope the next part of your journey helps you find something great.  

Dag may come off like a bitter bastard in his board persona, but he did something for me that was totally awesome beyond words, it meant more to me than he probably realizes, and I love him for it.  I refuse to say what it because I'd like to let this good deed remain unbragged.  I'm a weirdo like that.  

dasch- Belgian craft brews rule!  Hoegaarden (esp. Hoegaarden Grand Cru), Duvel, Chimay, LaChouffe, McChouffe, Delirium (Tremens and Nocturnum), and Krait... OMG Krait!  I don't consume beer often (I allow myself a "cheat meal + beer night" once a week and that beer and cheat meal have to be excellent.)  

Some things I ponder in life:  

Why do gay bars always have the best music?  

Will the world end if, for once, a lying liar from Liarsburg New Jersey is not elected into my state's political office?  If you think your state is corrupt, New Jersey has been more corrupt for millenia.  And people wonder why we New Jerseyans have that "middle finger in your face!" attitude.  

Why don't smoke detectors have a "never mind" switch?  I mean, I've accidentally set off smoke detectors while cooking stir-fry and I had everything under control.  Smoke detectors really should have a "never mind" switch.  

Why do peoples' answering machine messages always say "I can't come to the phone right now"?  Do people think we're too stupid to figure out the obvious that because your message has come on you can't get to the phone?

Dade reminded me of this gem


I love the very end when
Android 18 points and laughs.  That's adding insult to injury.

Who's a bigger nutcase threat to gaming as we know it?  Jack Thomson for his frivolous lawsuits or Uwe Boll for his poop-tastic film adaptations of video games?

My condolences to the man who made many of us the people we are today.  He will be missed.  What impresses me is that he lived and breathed this till his final days hosting D&D gatherings at his house.  You hear about most people who make this incredible contribution then get sick of it after a short time and never want to hear about it again.  Yet Gygax embraced D&D in his latter years and that's awesome.

My song of the moment is "Feel the Black" by Jendza.  I discovered this band quite by accident and they're really good.  They do a happy blend of 80s metal, David Bowie, and space rock.  "Feel the Black" is one hell of a fist pumper.

That's not a joke.  It's a legit music video.

I present to you the worst music video ever.  If you can endure a minute of it without barfing, I salute you.

This was one of the most hysterical Iron Chef America moments I can recall.  Although nothing can top Mario Batali making that shrimp parfait dessert and that one judge taking a huge mouthful and wretching.

This song has been stuck in my head for days, hence it's my song of the moment.  It's "Something Wonderful" by Saki Nakajima from the To Heart 2: Character Tracks soundtrack.  

'nuff said.

Not again.  Is Nader flippin' serious?  The guy should go jump in a lake and give it up already.  He's tried twice and he's failed miserably twice.  He's like that pesky mosquito that won't go away.  

Don't get me wrong, I'd LOVE to see a good Green Party or Independent candidate in the White House, but not that laughingstock Nader.  

It really looks like it'll be Obama vs. McCain.  And given how a strong constituency of Republicans dislike McCain but like Obama, this is going to be a battle.  

If you really think about it, for the past 20 years America has been ruled by either a Bush or  a Clinton.  The current crop of college undergrads have lived their entire lives under a Bush or Clinton.  It's definitely time for change (to use some of Obama's rhetoric.)  I think that's one reason why the youth voter turnout has been higher than usual.  

I was a vehement Bill Richardson supporter until he dropped out.  I then backed (and still do) Hillary since I agree with her the 2nd most on the issues; I voted for her in the Primaries.  Obama's #3 for me, and he's a great candidate.  If he gets the nod, I'll vote for him.  It's about time the Democrats had really strong and charismatic candidates that people can rally behind.

LaBrie= James LaBrie- lead singer of Dream Theater.  Personally, I'd take Russell Allen and his band, Symphony X, over Dream Theater any day.    

Absolute best beyond the grave metal lineup of monster zombies would be as follows:
Chuck Schuldiner- vocals, rhythm guitar
Dimebag Darrell- lead guitar
Cliff Burton- bass
Cozy Powell- drums.  

I guess I should post another fun fact about me since I'm in this thread.  If I had to choose between giving up gaming or giving up bass, I'd relinquish all my gaming stuff in a heartbeat.  I probably could buy an Xbox360 with my tax refund, but I won't.  I'm saving up for a custom bass made to my personal specs.  There doesn't exist a production bass that suits my needs and desires, so I wants me a custom.
5894  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Your Opinion: The Spin-Offs on: February 28, 2008, 05:55:47 PM
Just about every Megami Tensei game is a spin off.  The only really bad ones were Ronde, the GBA Devil Children (DemiKids) games, and Last Bible 1 (Revelations: The Demon Slayer.)  I think Megami Tensei has found more widespread success with its spin offs than its main series.  

FFX-2 was awesome.  It was more fun and enjoyable than FFX to me.  The gameplay was exquisite, playing dress up with Rikku was fun, and the music was stellar.  The battle theme in particular was awesome.  LeBlanc was such a wacky over-the-top villain, I couldn't help but love her.  "Noojie-woojie"

And in looking at the various Atelier titles out there (Atelier Marie, Atelier Elie, Atelier Judie, etc.) the Atelier Iris trilogy was pretty good.  1 & 2 were stellar.  3 not so much, but it was still reasonably fun.  

One series that has way too main main installments, spin offs, spin offs of spin offs and is just completely supersaturating the market is Tales.  Even the worst Tales game is relatively fun, but it is getting stale.  That series needs a shake-up.  Maybe a sci-fi space opera or cyberpunk Tales instead of the trad fantasy.  And maybe someone other than Motoi Sakuraba's insipid music (and not Go Shiina or Takuya Yasuda- they both sucked.)

Lately I've been taking to learning songs on bass for my own personal amusement.  Songs that I like but aren't super difficult because I'm not as confident in my skill as I should be and I'm a bit tired of doing drills.  

I have the Hal-Leonard bass transcription book for Blood Sugar Sex Magik by the Red Hot Chili Peppers and I've been attempting to learn "Give it Away" for my own amusement.  The bassline to that song isn't difficult (even with all the ghost note hammer-ons), but getting the timing and syncopation right is the tricky part.  

Awesome song (Give It Away), awesome album, and one of the greatest bands to ever walk this Earth.  The Chilis have NEVER put out a bad album and their sound remains unique and truly their own.
