Ah, I love it when a board member posts while "a bit tipsyr." Never ceases to make my day.

WTF? May 2007? Crap.

Code:
Venom? I thought Venom wasn't going to be in the Spiderman movies.

Regardless, I'm excited...even if I have to wait another fucking year.

Old news, I heard about it over a month ago. Of course that's likely due to my living in Utah. Though, from what I hear, the smell was like strong ammonia, so I wouldn't want to party with that guy.

I was running around killing Liquid Metal and King Metal Slimes for about four hours last night.


You say this like it's an easy thing to do. I think I was only able to kill a couple liquids, and the few Kings I ran into took off right away.
I chuckled when you wrote how you were tired of the game after a couple weeks(maybe?). Play it for 96 hours over 5 months and come back to me.

Yea it is an easy thing to do with skill points allocated to spears. There is an ability called Lightning Thrust that guarantees a critical if the attack hits. King Metal Slimes have twenty hit points, but when I do 200+ damage with Lightning Thrust it makes their HP a moot point.

And I get tired of most games after about forty hours. I just don't think there is any reason for them to be seventy hours or more. Although I didn't really get tired of DQVIII, I don't see why the game had to be so long with it's mediocre story and characters. Admittedly, I could have shaved a few hours off my completion time if I hadn't leveled up for a while, but even then I see no reason why the game was so long.

DOH!

Well, I'm going to Superman Returns tomorrow so I'll catch it there.

I gave up trying to listen after the third "How dare you say such a thing to me!" It was just too painful.

Well I tend to avoid reading fiery political commentary, but I do see where this guy is coming from. Though personally I have trouble seeing the expiration of the Voting Act affecting anything. I understand that racism still exists but I have my doubts that people would try to use poll taxes or literacy tests to try and keep minorities from voting. I could be wrong about that, but many Americans just don't even care about voting, much less who is voting.

Anyway, the article in the New York Times was much more informative than this commentary.

Doesn't look like a Photoshop to me. Awesome either way though.

Quote from: "Dade"
Thank's for the history lesson, Jimbo.....but please....dont speak to me like a fucking asshole.


B-but...it wasn't me!

Did Final Fantasy save Square? I couldn't tell you for sure but it seems to me the Final Fantasy series was started in order to capitalize on the success of the first Dragon Quest game. The first games in both series are highly similar though I suppose you could argue this is simply because of technology limitations. But Final Fantasy II was a decent departure in the fact that it actually had a decent story and fleshed out characters and wasn't just a massive power level fest.

Yes, I think the first Final Fantasy was a Dragon Quest imitator, but the series moved in its own direction afterward. Of course this is all a moot point anyway due to the merger a few years ago.

Alright, so I went and checked out that hill by Baccarat and was pleasantly surprised. I even did the first Dragovian Trial. Anyway, the alternate ending for doing that wasn't much more satisfying, but it was better. I don't understand why they didn't make the Dragovian Sanctuary part of the main game though. Oh well, I'm finished with DQVIII now. Game clock was just over seventy-four hours.

Almost 70 hours into DQVIII. I think this is hands down the longest amount of time I've put into a game in a single playthrough. Anyway, Empyrea has sent me running around the world to collect orbs, and after that I guess I'll finish the game...at least I hope this is the end.

EDIT: Okay, just finished the game. Decent ending and a fun game, what more could I ask for?

Or so I thought.

Code:
Now I'm curious as to what that place near Baccarat is doing all lit up and stuff, so I may have to go and check that out.

I was running around killing Liquid Metal and King Metal Slimes for about four hours last night. 70,000+ Experience for one battle? Yes please. I power leveled Hero to level 44. Hero, Yangus, and Jessica all have maxed skill sets now.

Hustle Dance = Hilarious
Golden Oldies = Hilarious

So much for being sick of the game.
958  The Rest / General Discussions / The World Cup - do the Americans care? on: June 23, 2006, 12:10:17 AM
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.
