Yea, if someone called me a Yank that is just stupid because I grew up in the western rural states. If you're going to call me by a slang name, don't call me a damn Yank, I'd rather be called a hick than a Yank.

Soccer is pretty popular here in the U.S., but like Neal said, it just isn't televised here because they can't run commercials. Otherwise I'm sure it would be a pretty big deal.

Also, soccer is VERY popular here with children under twelve in the U.S. When I was in elementary we either played soccer or dodge ball at recess everyday. Once we were twelve though, most of the boys made the jump to American football.

Game clock just hit sixty hours in DQVIII. My hero's level is 38 and I'm about to make my way to the floating island or whatever near Savella Cathedral. I'm getting close to being finished I hope, because I'm beginning to get tired of the game. I've come this far, so I'm going to finish it, but it is time for the game to be over now.

Whoo! What a surprise, they announced more Tales games!

/sarcasm

Aside from the ToD remake I'm not interested.

Found a way in the casino to increase my tokens by at least 7000 each win with only a one in three chance of losing. Max amount of tokens I could win was 66,500. Made things pretty easy for getting everyone that liquid metal armor.

I'm now in Empycchu and am apparently supposed to go and chase the Godbird's shadow around the island.

Manipulated the casino for a while. Long enough to get Jessica the Gringham Whip and then called it a night. I'm debating whether I should keep manipulating it right now to get everyone some Liquid Metal Armor or if I should just continue on with the game.

I'm headed to the Dragon Graveyard in DQVIII. Game clock is nearing fifty hours and Hero is currently level thirty-four.

I've been making items that my characters won't really use, like bows, but since I've been allocating skill points to Angelo's sword skills I don't really need them. Then I've been selling them for lots of money which I'm just sitting on for the most part (just in case) because my party is pretty well equipped.

Forty-five hours into Dragon Quest VIII and Hero's level is thirty-two. I just saved some herb medicine dude, don't remember his name, and the party had another "oh shit" moment shortly after.

As I said a few pages ago, I usually get tired of games after forty hours, but that has yet to happen for DQVIII. Anyway, I made a Blizzard Blade and sold it for a ton of money and was very happy.

I was trying to get it finished before I started my single class at school this summer, but I've failed since my class starts on Monday. I'm hoping to have enough time to get it finished by next weekend though.

Thirty-two hours into DQVIII. I've played it far too much today. I'm about to make my assault on the Dark Ruins. Hero's current level is twenty-seven.

I checked an Alchemy guide on GameFAQs and found I had all the ingredients necessary to make a Demon Spear, which is the best spear you can produce using the Alchemy Pot apparently. So I made one and Hero is now rocking hardcore.

I also finally found out what Cheese is good for when I used a Chilly Cheese I had made in battle. Awesome.

EDIT: I power leveled for a few hours and then went and owned Dhoulmagus. It would have been a decently hard battle if Sap hadn't worked on him. But I cast it three times, then cast Oomph on Hero and Yangus and he fell pretty easily with both of them doing 200-220 damage every turn.

Code:
I kind of figured when the King was still cursed that it wasn't Dhoulmagus, but the staff who is the real villain. I'm assuming this Rhapthorne person those Lost Souls were talking about is sealed in the staff and, oh shit, is controlling Jessica.

A tad predictable, but oh well.

I'm to Baccarat in Dragon Quest VIII and am on my way to Argonia. I love this game...I can't even explain why because normally I would hate it. I almost can't stand saying this, but I think a large part of it is the fantastic world it takes place in. It's huge and gorgeous. Grandia III had some of the best looking environments I've ever seen in a game, but I think DQVIII manages to top it at times. Everytime I climb a hill with a good view I have to stop and look around because the world is just so massive.

Of course the humor in the game manages to keep me entertained fairly well. If Grandia III had remained humorous throughout the game it would probably be one of my favorite RPGs. My game clock is at twenty-four hours in DQVIII and it is still humorous even in battle. Like when the Sirens on the ocean try to use the Puff puff ability (or whatever it's called) on Jessica and it says something to the extent of, "But Jessica wins the battle of the bulge."

OMG!

Wasn't as enjoyable as the last one. But still, fucking Princess Toadstool/Peach.

Actually, no he doesn't if said theaters decided not to show the film. All the distribution can do is send the film to the theaters. If theaters don't think it will rake in the dough they aren't obligated to show it, especially since a large number of movie theaters are locally owned and operated. So they may have sent the film to 2000 theaters, but that doesn't mean anything.

Now if they only sent out 950 reels of the film, well, they're screwed.

Cat chases bear up tree. Twice as a matter of fact. The article also neglects to mention the cat is declawed. Anyway, I thought I'd share it here for no other reason than the awesome picture.

I can't blame the bear really, I'd be scared of a fifteen pound house cat myself.
959  The Rest / General Discussions / In-game advertising. on: June 09, 2006, 10:55:44 PM
I wouldn't really care a whole lot in games that are set in the modern world where seeing said advertisements on billboards and stuff would actually happen. Like say if I saw a Coke advertisement in GTA then I wouldn't mind really because I see two huge Coke billboards on the freeway every time I drive to school. But if I was playing a game where it was just totally out of context, then no. Like if I was playing Dragon Quest VIII and there was an advertisement for Coke I would be upset.

*Hero finds a bottle of Coke in the treasure chest.*
*Hero drinks the bottle of Coke, its fizzy goodness restores 50 HP.*

No.

Basically the same set of advertising rules they keep to movies. A McDonald's advertisement just wouldn't work in say The Lord of the Rings trilogy, but in a movie that is set in the present day I have no qualms.

I'm to the Swordsman's Labyrinth in DQVIII. Game clock is at thirteen hours and a good hour of that was from me wandering around looking for the hill that led to the Land of Dreams or whatever it was called. I'm also a bit over-leveled because of all the wandering around I did and am owning most enemies with ease. Anyway, I really liked the sequence with King Pavan of Ascantha after I found the hill and made it to the top, it was just very well done.

EDIT: It really figures that when I change the armor on one of the male characters there is no noticeable difference to their model, but when I change Jessica's armor she is in a skimpy dress and bikini top. Crazy ass Japanese...
