6151  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Devil Summoner US Bound on: April 12, 2006, 04:11:57 PM
Dade, in this thread: http://www.rpgfan.com/boards/viewtopic.php?t=141&start=0 I talk about where the Devil Summoner series fits in the Megami Tensei mythos and the gameplay differences that it used.  

As for Devil Summoner in the US- sexy.
6152  The Rest / General Discussions / 911 Dispatcher's Mistake Leads to Mother's Death on: April 11, 2006, 09:08:24 PM
Question for anyone who might know better.  Aren't some 911 call centers in certain areas specially trained to ask certain questions and such to truly determine whether or not a call is a prank call?  I can understand if prank calling is a problem in an area because a dispatch to a prank call takes away help from someone who could really be in trouble at that moment.  

It sounds as if, in these cases people mention, that the person receiving the call more or less used gut instinct to determine whether or not the call was fake, but since I don't have transcriptions of these conversations and don't know the "prank alert" questions that call centers ask to determine whether a call is legit or not, I can only speculate so much.  Perhaps the whole "prank screening" process is so arduous and time consuming that people just go "eh, fuck it" and assume the false-negative.

Robert- the original Megami Tensei game was based on the novel "Digital Devil Story" which I believe was later adapted into a movie.  It wasn't an anime, though.  

However, there was an anime TV series based on Devil Children Red + Black books games for Game Boy.
6154  The Rest / General Discussions / Ridiculously Expensive Sandwich on: April 10, 2006, 07:33:41 PM
Eh, I'll go for a Fat Sandwich at one of the famous Rutgers U grease trucks instead if I want an artery clogger featuring 2 days' worth of calories in one meal.

Damien, Rob, you guys are Rutgers alums.  Back me up here on the greatness of the grease trucks:P

Well, you all know what to do here, right?  Post your progress in games you're playing.  

As for me, I played the first 3 chapters in Exodus Guilty vol. 1.  So far the game's really good.  The story is killer.
6156  The Rest / General Discussions / Game journal yeah whoo. on: April 10, 2006, 12:49:12 AM
24 pages?  Methinks it's time for a game journal renew.
6157  The Rest / General Discussions / 911 Dispatcher's Mistake Leads to Mother's Death on: April 09, 2006, 07:05:47 PM
Here's an appropo song for this thread and I'm sure it sums up most of our feelings.  It's called "911 is a Joke" by Public Enemy off their album "Fear of a Black Planet."  

Public Enemy's fucking awesome.  Chuck D= the preacher!

911 is a Joke

Hit me
Going, going, gone
Now I dialed 911 a long time ago
Don't you see how late they're reactin'
They only come and they come when they wanna
So get the morgue embalm the goner
They don't care 'cause they stay paid anyway
They teach ya like an ace they can't be betrayed
I know you stumble with no use people
If your life is on the line they you're dead today
Late comings with the late comin' stretcher
That's a body bag in disguise y'all betcha
I call 'em body snatchers quick they come to fetch ya?
With an autopsy ambulance just to dissect ya
They are the kings 'cause they swing amputation
Lose your arms, your legs to them it's compilation
I can prove it to you watch the rotation
It all adds up to a funky situation
So get up get, get get down
911 is a joke in yo town
Get up, get, get, get down
Late 911 wears the late crown

911 is a joke

Everyday they don't never come correct
You can ask my man right here with the broken neck
He's a witness to the job never bein' done
He would've been in full in 8 9-11
Was a joke 'cause they always jokin'
They the token to your life when it's croakin'
They need to be in a pawn shop on a
911 is a joke we don't want 'em
I call a cab 'cause a cab will come quicker
The doctors huddle up and call a flea flicker
The reason that I say that 'cause they
Flick you off like fleas
They be laughin' at ya while you're crawlin' on your knees
And to the strength so go the length
Thinkin' you are first when you really are tenth
You better wake up and smell the real flavor
Cause 911 is a fake life saver

So get up, get, get get down
911 is a joke in yo town
Get up, get, get, get down
Late 911 wears the late crown

Ow, ow 911 is a joke
6158  Media / The Soundroom / Song of the Moment on: April 09, 2006, 05:42:58 PM
I'm on such a Divinity Destroyed kick that it's sickening.  So song of the moment is "Threnody" by them.  It's a fantastic song with some interesting time changes, cool drum beats, and some very cool syncopated vocal lines.  

Fantastic song.  Possibly my favorite song by the band.  EDIT:  And what the heck, I'll say it.  Frontman Mark Ward is a sexy beast.  If I were a girl, he's totally the kind of guy I'd go for.  

I shall never surrender
How could I cease to recall?
I am the only one left to be this alone
As each day passes by
I celebrate one less to live on this way without you

Mirror breaks, but who's in there
And I can't look long
I won't find you there

She calls to me in my...

Broken dreams are the way we shall live
And through darkened hallways, I pass all I've lived for

Paintings line the walls and
Take me back to the times when lucidity reigned
But how do I return?
Blind to everything here
I lose vision of all that remains all around
As I lose that as well

Innocence captured here in time
Echoes of the past
Pleading me to stop
And yet...

She calls to me in my...

Broken dreams are the way we shall live
And through darkened hallways, I pass all I've lived for
Alone in this world as I stand in the night falling
Deeper from where I thought that I had hit bottom

Plead on my knees so I may breathe my last breath which sets me free
Scream to the seas so that I may drown deep within their depths and cease to be

With your untimely end, I am reborn
In this world of hate for those who have what they love
How long must I remain with this corrupted soul
Crying tears of blood
Until empty, I fall

Long hallways keep them from my mind
No one sees through the barriers

She calls to me in my…

Broken dreams are the way we shall live
And through darkened hallways, I pass all I’ve lived for
Alone in this world as I stand in the night falling
Deeper from where I thought that I had hit bottom
Return to me, my strength
My soul still perseveres onward
You reach for my hand
And then pull me away from this

The sun feels as I remembered that day
As the light healed this withering canvas
Yearning to be free
But not to be lost
I came here reluctantly
But knew I belonged
How had I fallen so far?

She should be fired.  This is a case of one strike you're out.  Every 911 call should be taken seriously.  Better the police and all show up for a false alarm than not show up when it's the real McCoy.  

What a fucking cold-hearted bitch who wouldn't even take the pleas of help from a child seriously.
6160  Media / The Soundroom / Recent Music Purchases on: April 08, 2006, 02:41:14 PM
Divinity Destroyed fucking KILLED at last night's show.  I just bought their Eden in Ashes album on iTunes and ordered their Nocturnal Dawn album off their website.  

Awesome band and really nice guys too.  The keyboards and bass could have been a bit more prominent in the mix, though.
6161  Media / The Soundroom / Defend your music. on: April 08, 2006, 02:36:49 PM
"Sex & Religion" by Vai

This is almost universally panned as Vai's worst album.  But hot damn if I don't love it to pieces.  It has its moments (i.e. "Touching Tongues" is an AMAZING song) and though some of the songs have not-so-great lyrics ("In My Dreams With You" comes to mind), it doesn't matter because Devin Townsend absolutely steals the show.  When I first heard this album, I was completely blown away by the singer and knew he was something special.  Now, anyone who listens to Devy's music knows he's something special.  

And "Sex & Religion" is the album that started it all.  The album may have been frought with peril and not be as good as other Vai albums like "Passion and Warfare" but Devin totally slays.  I love his vocal work on "Down Deep Into the Pain."  

There really isn't a single song I don't like on the album.  It's one of those albums that I love but everyone else loathes.

Man, if it weren't for those exorbitant international shipping rates and the fact I'm already looking to spend too much money on music gear (i.e. a PA system, a subwoofer for my bass rig, and a drumkit) I'd totally hit you up for that keyboard.
6163  The Rest / General Discussions / MARIO IS A TERRORIST! on: April 08, 2006, 12:18:47 PM
...because God forbid teenage girls use their free time to engage in "usual" pursuits during spring break like having promiscuous sex, drinking gallons of tequila, and shooting up drugs.
6164  The Rest / General Discussions / Hugging is now Roughousing on: April 08, 2006, 01:00:29 AM
That's just insane.  I work part time in a pre-K (4-5 year olds) and you know how kids that age are.  They're naturally clingy and touchy-feely.  Not a single work day goes by when I don't get hugs from the kids.  Of course, I always have to be careful because I am a guy and guys typically don't teach/work with such young children.    

As for the "roughhousing" bit, c'mon!  You can't put forcefields around kids.  There's a reason God/Evolution/Whatever made kids out of rubber at that age.  They're physically and mentally resilient.

EDIT:  That site is creepy as hell though.  Mark, what in the holy name of Lemmy Kilminster were you even DOING on a loli site in the first place?
6165  Media / The Soundroom / Song of the Moment on: April 08, 2006, 12:52:10 AM
I just got back from a concert.  I saw a Rutgers all female a-capella group called Shockwave (who were awesome), an MTV-friendly pop-punk band called Distant Enemies (who sucked), my good friends in No Damn Problem (a kickass ska band who's calling it quits), my good friends in the thrash metal band Asylum, and the prog-metal stylings of Divinity Destroyed.

Divinity Destroyed were fuckin' awesome.  And they're really nice guys too.  Not to mention, their fanbase/crowd are nice people too.  They thought it was cool that I was doing air-keys to "Forsaken" which is why "Forsaken" by Divinity Destroyed is my song of the moment.  One of their guitar players' thumbs was bleeding like crazy and he still completed the set in true metal fashion.  There was a nice blood stain all over his guitar.  

Lyrics cribbed from their website http://www.divinitydestroyed.com

High in the sky, I see you falling
Why do you think that I will catch you?
Past the clouds a burning fire
Hear it sing like a choir
You gave much more than you should have
My first words are your last rites
Deep within my vacant mind
Sits the thought,
"Maybe there is hope..."

Rays of light pour from my eyes and
Baptize all that lay beneath me
Everything that I have gained is
Nothing next to all I've lost
I surrender to the blackness
Hoping, praying for acceptance
Deep within my vacant mind
Sits the thought,
"Maybe there is hope..."

No sins, yet forsaken
When will I awaken...
This truth I won't swallow:
I have become hollow
I'll wait for tomorrow
Where there is no sorrow
I see a light in the darkness
I weep as that light goes out

Neverending pain
Driving me insane
No more, I can't take it
Silent cries
Bloodshot eyes
I'll defy you til I fall
Final living breath
Welcomed into death
Mercy please, I'll beg for mercy
Now alone
On my own
All I wanted was salvation

Lost and staring at the ground I
Realize: "I am nothing"
Tears are streaming down my face and
Seeping deep into my wounds
I am beaten, I am battered
Dripping blood, my wings are tattered
Broken, I fall to my knees and
Cry to the sky,

"Heaven, take me home"
