That's flippin' awesome...and almost all too true. Like Ramza said, Nintendo isn't really a company to do something that sexual, but they didn't do a bad job of conveying my feelings on the whole matter.

And yea, the BluRay part is hilarious.

So thanks to the peeps on IRC yesterday I learned about the new Megaman ZX game coming to DS. I can't believe I missed hearing about this somehow...but anyway, the same thing happens every time a new Megaman game REALLY catches my attention: I have to play through the series.

Managed to get through MM1-7 last night in about four and a half hours. MM8 and Megaman and Bass will take a little longer but I should have them both finished by tomorrow. After that is the MMX series, and then the MMZero series.

...I really can't stand it sometimes, but there is no denying I love Megaman :D
933  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Luminous Arc (SRPG for the DS [Mitsuda composing]) on: August 13, 2006, 04:11:15 PM
Looks pretty sweet to me, and Mitsuda as a composer is definitely something worth checking out, IMO. The gameplay screens look A LOT like Final Fantasy Tactics, so I imagine any fans of that series will probably want to give it a look. This looks like it could tide me over, if it is released outside of Japan, until the next Fire Emblem game is out.

Plus, as someone else said, I think the DS has the potential of being the best system for SRPGs currently available. The dual-screen format is perfect for viewing maps and battles on one screen while viewing information, stats, and inventory on the other. I'm really keeping my fingers crossed for an FE game for DS.

Finished up FE7. I will now wait patiently for the upcoming FE for the Wii.

I've been playing nothing but Fire Emblem for the last month, so my FE cravings should be satisfied for quite a while now.

Yea, Ash, most of my characters were able to knock off around half of its HP, but Lilina's maxed magic + Forblaze + A rank support with Roy = pwn4g3.

I'm now to chapter twenty-nine in FE7. Erk and Guy actually turned out decent for me this time around which hasn't happened very often. But since they have Raven and Nino were given the boot. I've also completed A LOT of supports this time around. Quite a few of my units will have an A rank support by the end of this chapter. All of the supports I did were new for me to:

Bartre + Canas - Hilarious!
Karel + Lucius - The dark humor in the B rank support made me laugh
Florina + Lyn - Eh, kind of bland
Rath + Guy - Most of Rath's supports are bland, this was no exception.
Hector + Matthew - Hilarious!
Erk + Priscilla - Didn't care really, should have used Serra for entertainment
Heath + Kent - First time I've supported Heath, so finding out about where he comes from is nice.

That's it.

I think the backgrounds in those screens look fantastic, but the character sprites look incredibly bland. They could have at least added some more color to them and maybe try to make the faces a little more clear. But yea, this isn't enough to convince me to purchase the port.
937  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Metroid Prime 3: Corruption on: August 11, 2006, 01:47:23 AM
Luckily it kind of looks like the lock-on targeting system is still there (I can't tell for sure) because I liked it. The lack of being able to lock-on to an enemy in Metroid Prime: Hunters is what killed the game for me because the stylus just didn't get the job done. I do think using the Wiimote will be a much better option than the stylus, but the lock-on is something I hope reappears.

As for the game, I'm worried it will place more emphasis on run-and-gun shooting rather than platforming and exploration in order to appeal to the more mainstream FPS crowd. So far Retro hasn't let me down in this regard, but with the new motion-sensing controller acting like a computer mouse I could easily see the game becoming another generic FPS.

I'm also concerned about the world hopping because I didn't enjoy having to do that in Hunters either. But this is just personal preference; I want my underground catacombs :(

I started a game of FE7 just to be a completionist. I'm only eight hours into the game and I'm to chapter twenty of Hector's normal arc; I've even been reading the story and stuff. I haven't had to restart any chapters at all either. Kind of easy after FE6, but I'm not necessarily looking for a challenge this time around.

Though I do have to say the final boss in FE6 is a lot easier than the final boss in FE7. I suppose this is because everyone can damage it in FE6 while only Hector, Eliwood and Athos are the only ones who can do a significant amount of damage in FE7. I mean, my level 20/14 Lilina was capable of nearly killing the final boss of FE6 by herself for crying out loud. Kind of disappointing really, but oh well.

Quote from: "Dade"

This is me about 20 minutes ago after eating and drinking too much for the evening.

Yeah....dont tell me about the pseudo-receeding hairline.

Y-you mean it is actually a picture of Dade? Not a link to goatse or tubgirl? Amazing!

And don't worry about the pseudo-receding hairline. I think mine is worse but I want to be bald, so... :P

The full-voice does sound way cool considering what was already there was very well done. It is pretty tempting, because I love the game (was actually thinking about replaying it soon), but it isn't tempting enough for me to purchase a PSP.

But even if I did want it I wouldn't be able to. College has made me poor.
941  The Rest / General Discussions / Ze Picture Thread on: August 09, 2006, 01:32:20 PM

As I said in my LJ: Good Evening Dr. Jones.

That's actually a picture I took only two days ago when I was checking out my new suit.

And no, Tomara, you don't look like a guy. I think this person needs to have an eye exam.
942  The Rest / General Discussions / Game Journal #2 on the new(ish) boards on: August 06, 2006, 01:48:22 PM
Finished FE6 yesterday.

That's about it. I may go ahead and play through FE7 now just to be a completionist. But we'll see considering I still have a short stack of games I need to get through still.

*Looks at Magna Carta*

Quote from: "Tomara"
Fire Emblem: Thracia 776 is a horrible, horrible game. I have never played something this evil in my life. This game is sadistic, I can hear it laughing when the RGN screws me over again. Just beat some of the most horrible maps ever found in a Fire Emblem game, chapter 23 is somewhat easier, but it's still a major bitch. Once I finish this game I will  point and laugh at the screen and never, ever touch this satanic game again.

Yea, I tried to warn you. I would give the game another chance myself if I could understand what was going on. But I don't and the game is just too brutal for me.

And Yes, Sigurd is awesome.

Anyway, I haven't played Fuuin so much the past few days because I've had a paper due for school. I just barely finished chapter 16x and received Aureola. I kind of wonder why they even included it aside from giving you the complete set of legendary weapons, because I didn't have any units who could use it last time and I don't think I will this time either. If there were monks in this game like in FE7 I probably would, but the Bishops you can get in this game are just meh and not really worth the time.

Though I have to admit Clarine isn't really worth the time either because of her poor magic growth, but since most of my strategies revolve around my units' ability to move I kind of need her as my main healer.

Lilina is a level four sage and almost has her magic stat to 30! She's kicking Roy's ass all over the place. Roy is level 19 and has 9 strength...I have to have a silver sword or two in reserve for him so he can actually do any significant damage to most of the enemy units. I have a feeling the people who adore Roy and Marth in Smash Bros. have no idea how much the two of them suck in their actual games.

And Roy's sprite is ugly too!
944  The Rest / General Discussions / Anti-Aging Molecule Discovered on: August 02, 2006, 04:44:24 PM
Wow that's pretty cool even if I wouldn't use it myself. The concern though would be any possible side-effects to this molecule. Sure they say they know exactly how it works, but chances are something will come up. Anyway I could totally see this finding a huge following in the U.S. considering the most people seem to associate "good" with youth and "bad" with getting old and wrinkly.

Though I don't quite understand how it can reverse the process of aging cells. Blocking is one thing, but how does it reverse the aging process?
945  The Rest / General Discussions / Horrible game ads. on: August 02, 2006, 02:50:18 AM

I mean I'm a fan of Megaman and all, but wow, that is one terrible add. The only thing Megaman 4 did differently was add the charge shot. I can hardly believe it says "Like Nothing Before."
