Maybe they'll surprise us and remake Chrono Trigger for the DS.

I don't disagree that many things in history have become embellished. I also don't doubt that the justification was exaggerated in the rationale to drop the bombs. At times of desperation, people will stretch the truth to get out of it. No avoiding that.

I don't, however, disagree with the bombs being dropped. It was basically the belting a kid got to tell him to get his shit straight. If we hadn't dropped the bombs, history might've repeated itself. Now it's not just Japan, but many countries that need to consider "will doing something like this get our asses nuked?" It's a scare tactic, but a damn effective one.

That's actually the third game in the series.

Of course not. My Asian history class mentioned that many Japanese citizens, not to mention American Japanese in concentration camps, were horrified that their own people, who they believed to be honorable and noble, committed such atrocities.

About the museum though, I guess my information is outdated or incorrect. This whole issue has caused a lot of conflicts and scrutiny over the years, and it seems like Japan is just now starting admit what happened.

I wonder what's worse: The Japanese making sob stories out of getting barbequed or them trying to justify killing millions of people in their invasion of the mainland.


I saw the bomb memorial museum in hiroshima and the whole china issue was very sketchy.  iirc, they did mention it, but the numbers and acts were toned down majorly from the articles i've read other places.


"Sketchy" is an undesrstatement. If I'm not misinformed, the entire thing was about how Japan tried to "liberate and help" the mainland from foreign influence or whatever.

This game is short as sin. Other than that it's pretty fun.
3833  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Problem with Norton Internet Security on: August 01, 2006, 07:03:17 PM
I have a new computer that comes with Norton Internet Security preinstalled, and t keeps blocking AIM Triton. I have the progam updated and AIM set on "Permit All," with all AIM ports unblocked, but whenever Norton Internet Security is enabled, AIM is blocked. Anyone have any solutions to this?
3834  The Rest / General Discussions / North Korea tests long range missle, five short range. on: July 11, 2006, 01:26:25 AM
There's a ridiculous fucking double standard and hypocrisy running amok with this issue.

If I recall correctly (and I may not, so feel free to call me on it), India recently tested out a mid range missile which succeeded and nobody breathed a word about it. North Korea tests out some missiles, only one of which succeeded, and that one was a short range missile, and everyone's going ballistic. Watching the news now, Japan seems to be on emergency alert for a possible pre-emptive strike on North Korea. What the fuck.

Bullshit, is what this crap is.

You and me both, pal.
3836  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth on: July 10, 2006, 01:34:38 PM
I never understood why people hated the VA in Valkyrie Profile. I liked it a lot. Sure it's not anything high caliber or anything, but I think they did a good job. I enjoyed the voices a lot.

Is it because of the Pokemon thing? Or what? Cause I mean, me and my brothers kept saying stuff like "HEY LOOK, BROCK!" and "Dude, Tracey's Loki. I knew he was fucking evil, man."

And the ensuing reaction.
3838  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Atelier Iris: Grand Fantasm on: July 08, 2006, 12:29:45 PM
For some reason I was under the impression this game was for the PSP. So I was pretty surprised when I saw it for the PS2 on my monthly trip to my local import store. That being said, this game is awesome. I like it more than the Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana games.

The game has an almost Grandia-esque battle system, and all spells and special abilities are reliant on a special attack gauge that fills as you use normal attacks (the max level being nine, with special skills and abilities using up one or two levels for the most part). At the bottom is a burst gauge and as you smack enemies, it'll fill, and when enemies attack you, it'll lower. When it hits max you enter a combo mode which fills the special attack gauge to full and increases the power of all your special attacks. It also counts the number of hits you make in this mode, as it can affect the post-battle earnings, and some attacks can also deal more damage with a higher number of hits.

The story is nothing too great, graphics aren't too big of a departure from previous games, music is okay, and for some reason there is very little voice acting (WTF?), but overall this is turning out to be my favorite Atelier Iris game, if only for the high number of hot chicks. My one complaint is that it's too damn easy.

More impressions to follow.

Seems like you're just looking for something to complain about.

Ha ha ha.

Okay.
