Now go despair at the human race and/or hope some of these are a bad joke


I hope some of those people are trolling or misspoke. Sadly, I'm sure it's all real.

Leonard Nimoy died today :(

3  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Trails in the Sky FC PC release July 29th on: February 27, 2015, 07:44:36 PM
I decided to take a little hiatus from FC so I can immediately follow it up with the second once its released. I want the transition to be seamless. I reckon that I'll end up forgetting some details if I hurry up and finish the FC now.

It's not the color of the dress that matters but how well it will burn in a fire.

Playing devil's advocate here, what if that money was crowdfunded into decaying infrastructure, paying off debt, scientific r&d and cancer research. Imagine the possibilities. . .

The American Dream doesn't include any of those things.
6  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Suikoden 1 and 2 finally coming to psn + Suikoden discussion. on: February 19, 2015, 05:02:05 PM
I don't really remember how I acquired Suikoden I when I was younger, but I think it may have been on a whim. I do remember thinking that the artwork in the case look somewhat cheesy. The first game drew me in and Suikoden II sealed the love that I have for the series.

I would rank the entries in this order:

1)II
2)V
3)I
4)III
5)IV

The only toss up that I have in the rankings is I and III. III had a better story and tied things in from I, yet the gameplay was way too slow and deviated from I thought was unique to the overall series. I's story may have not been as good as III's but it was the introduction to the series and wasn't bad by any means. I found the gameplay in I more enjoyable than III's.

Also, I messed in V and wasn't able to get all the characters. I was too far along in the game to want to restart. Something happens that causes the ending to one or another way. I found the alternate ending where the player didn't get all the 108 people to be more realistic and enjoyable. It wasn't all "happy, happy, joy, joy".

Due to me not getting a PS3, the last Tales game that I played was Abyss . It was my favorite out of the ones I played.

side note: Who pays attention/finds out about this kind of stuff? Granted, 3 hours (looking at the "last record update") is plenty of time to find about something but, still, I find it interesting that people are able to find out about it.

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/progressivesecularhumanist/2015/01/canadian-girl-dead-after-abandoning-chemo-for-faith-based-alternative/

URL says a lot, she was 11 years old and urged by parents to abandon chemotherapy (despite a 75% survival stat!) because of Jesus and faith.

I have no problem with religious people or religion, except when stupid stuff like this happens.

As a person of very little faith (besides hoping doggy heaven exists), I've always liked that quote "God helps those who help themselves" --- I feel like this is almost certainly applicable to the scenario.

I'm curious as to the belief(s) of her parents.  For example, Jehovah's Witnesses (whom I would not identify as "Christian" for theological reasons) usually shun the idea of medical help because it is of the "world". Regardless of the parent's background, it was awful and unwise of them to avoid medical help for their daughter.

I don't get what level of vocal talent people are expecting for a road trip segment.  My initial gripes aside with the really lame last lines Noctis spouts out (and yeah, this does sound placeholder) then this is much ado about nothing.
If the big, emotional, and dramatic scenes sound like this in the end product, then we can all point and laugh again. x)


What are we fighting for...aggghaaaarrrrr?!?

I can't get over the fact that the cast is traveling in a car. It makes sense as far as logistically. Just seems odd that they are taking a evening stroll and seeing a giant deformed elephant creature lurking on the horizon. I can't imagine what pee-breaks look like.

Game looks cool. Right up my alley. Will get it.

So I found this picture on Imgur.  Apparently the user needs to get a colonoscopy (which means a shit load of laxatives before the examination)....  This looks awesome though.



For me to poop on.

Finished the final season of The Killing. It tied up loose ends and didn't drag things out near as bad as in other seasons. Granted, it was only six episodes.

I have a backlog of games and decided to watch the story/dialogue cut-scenes on Youtube to get the story without having to go through the gameplay (I got stuck on a boss and didn't feel like grinding more to level). Unless I farted around too much in my play-time, it seems that the story doesn't pick up until the middle of the game (around 30/40 or so hours).  I think the story should already be fleshed out more by that hour mark, not starting up. Upon the completion of my viewing on Youtube, I believe the main thrust of the story was dragged out and could have been covered in a more timely manner. I also think the characters seem kind of mediocre aside from the "heart-to-heart" interaction. With that said, I have found myself wanting to play through the game rather than being glad that I didn't waste any more time on it.

Pseudonym there's a 0% chance of me finishing the game because I've played through about eight RPGs, total, and about half of those topped out between 5 to 15 hours in length. And one of them was Xenogears for some reason.

I have a hard time maintaining interest in anything. It's kind of awful. I think normal people just watch TV and die for fun, but I'm not big on either of those.

Honestly, I have the same problem. Even if I do find a game interesting, I'll get lazy and not finish it. Either that or I got other things going on in my life that take up my attention/have a higher priority. The last game I completely finished was Dues EX and that's not really a RPG.

Even with my gaming habit I still bought Trails yesterday. Will I finish it, who knows?

This actually applies to food though. I haven't really eaten normally since I started my current job, which was like, three years ago at this point. Lately I've just been eating cereal at dinner because I'm tired of things that have tomatoes in it which is literally anything else I might eat. I was eating scones and smoothies from Starbucks a lot but I'm kind of tired of having to chew dough. Had eggplant for lunch yesterday. Find the taste of grill char /super/ offputting right now.

I might like other things but I'm really prone to forgetting it.

That stinks. If my job was related to food, then I would be eating a lot of cardboard boxes. I would definitely like to eat plastic for dinner if that were the case.
