Words only hurt if you let them hurt.  I was made fun of for years but I turned out just fine, mostly because I ignored the bullshit fully understanding that most of the bullies would end up with 8 kids in a trailer working a dead-end construction job with no future.

I somewhat agree. The words aren't so bad, but the frustration that comes from knowing there is no way to stop it hurts so much.

I remember the last time it happened to me... A bunch of teenage boys saw me on my bikeride home from school and thought I would be a good target. I looked like someone their age and at that age cycling on your own is unusual. They started harassing me. The names they called me were mostly retarded ("fucking Turk", "whore" etc because a blond haired, blue eyed girl in her winter coat obviously looks like a Turkish prostitute), but it went on for 45 minutes. If there were only two of them I could have pushed one in a ditch or something, but I can't take on five people. I ignored them the whole time, not showing any emotion. By the time I got home I was very angry and upset and my parents got angry at me for being angry and not being allowed to have an emotional outlet after that just sucks.

If life is so fair, then why do roses have thorns? :(

Victims become victims, because they appear to be the weakest link and bullying someone who has a secure position within a group is social suicide. A bully in one group may be the victim in another. It probably has more to do with luck than with looks and social skills.

A hilarious loser. Visit his forums, it's like a going to Baron Cohen a movie without having to see the nudity.

I first adopted the username Tedius Zanarukando on September 1, 2002, at Empyron.com. The username was inspired by Square Enix's Final Fantasy X. The full username is Eunes Decimus Tedius Regio Zanaruqandior. The name "Tedius" is derived from the name of Tidus, the protagonist of Final Fantasy X. It is also confused with the word tedious. That would imply that no one is romantically interested in me, that I have a unique and controversial opinion, or that I have had a bad reputation on some boards. "Zanarukando" meant that my favorite video game has been Final Fantasy X and is the kana spelling of "Zanarkand", implying that I would live in Zanarkand Ruins if I were in the Final Fantasy world. The kana spelling was chosen, because Japan has done a whole lot of great things for me, and many of my school supplies were made in Japan, and that I have somewhat been influenced by Japanese culture.

That's the old explanation. The new is one insane. I'll try to find the exact words.

This will do:

The screen name Tedius Zanarukando is his universal screen name, with variations such as Ted Zanarukando, Teddy Zanarukando, Braska Spira, and King Mananan. His full screen name is Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando. At TheFinalFantasy.com, he is called Braska Spira. The name of Tedius in the user name means one who does not believe in romantic love. He always gets turned down when it comes to develop a romantic relationship. The name of Zanarukando means a video game player who has given up religious faith or heritage for video games. This may be more commonly known as an apostate gamer. Its origin pertains to his favorite video game series, Final Fantasy. Tedius is a variant of Tidus, the name of the main character of Final Fantasy X. Zanarukando is Japanese for Zanarkand, a Final Fantasy X location.

Of course he can't get a girl, he thinks every girl who wears her hair short or prefers pants over skirts should be sterilized. I quote:

A woman wearing her hair short or wearing pants is a dishonor to that woman. You must change, or else I will have you sterilized.

I saw him at SerenesForest.net a while back, but I doubt he's still an active member there. After all, Tedius is Tedius.

Cosapi is fairly normal compared to some other infamous (ex)RPGfan members. Google Tedius Zanarukando if you want to know more...

... you seriously believe that? It may remove some of the rough edges of character models, but it won't add any details or anything. If you believe you can turn this into something of this quality, you need to get your eyes checked.

Alright, I'm done with Tales of the Abyss. I did almost every sidequest, had L150 characters etc. And, that game was starting to affect my dreams. Anise trying to become rich by drawing and selling yaoi doujinshi (guess were she got the inspiration from...)... Or that dream about Jade that resembled an episode of House. Jade lost his parking spot, so he walked around in his bathrobe until he got it back.

To regain some control over my dreams, hilarious as they may be, I started playing Suikoden Tierkries. I've only played for two hours, but I like it. It's a bit different and I miss upgrading weapons the usual way, but the alternate worlds idea is interesting.

FFVI had the FFX demo? I didn't know that.

Final Fantasy has great hair. Final Fantasy: Spirit's Within had the most wow hair as I know of.

FFXIII and Versus's hair looks great too though.

The only problem is that they accidently put the women's hair on men.

Since Square didn't bother to release ANYTHING for the PSX in Europe apart from your usual FFs (lol but no tactics), PS2 wins by default. I had more RPGs on my Sega Saturn, for fuck's sake.

There were other JRPG folk who released their games in PAL regions. Yes, we did miss out on Chrono Cross, Final Fantasy Tactics (well...we have it now) and Xenogears, but we did get many other non-Square RPGs. There are other awesome RPGs out there.

The only RPGs I remember when I used to get the UK OPM were Vandal Hearts, Breath of Fire III, Wild Arms and unmemorable stuff like Azure Dreams...  Yeah, it turns out a handful of the so-called classics did come out eventually, a year after NA, in 2000, but are so hard to find that I only found out PAL Suikoden II and Star Ocean 2 existed fairly recently. The exception to this would be Grandia, Ubisoft did a good job of actually making copies of that. :P

But regardless, the European RPG player will have a decidedly different opinion of the PSX, and this discrepancy has been minimalised with the PS2.

We got:
Alundra II
Azure Dreams
Breath of Fire III
Breath of Fire IV
Final Fantasy Origins (I + II)
Final Fantasy Anthology (IV + V)
Final Fantasy VI (with Final Fantasy X demo)
Final Fantasy VII
Final Fantasy VIII
Final Fantasy IX
Front Mission III
Jade Cocoon
Legend of Dragoon
Legend of Kartia
Legend of Legaia
Parasite Eve II
Saga Frontier II
Star Ocean II
Suikoden II
Vagrant Story
Vandal Hearts
Vandal Hearts II
Wild Arms

Maybe a few more, but nothing spectacular.

Not many.

Atlus games? We didn't get those.

Working Designs games? Only Alundra.

Enix? Well, we did get Star Ocean 2.

Not that it was much of a problem for me. I've got a modded Playstation and an NTSC U/C PS2 :3

PS1 or PS2? PS2, I think. PS2 had its classics, but two of my three favourite RPGs are PS2 titles.

What scares me is I can't tell who's being sarcastic in this thread and who's not :(

I was serious. Maybe.

What I don't like:
-realistic graphics
-lack of colours
-sand box gameplay
-bald space mariners

One of those is not enough to make me want to play another game, but a combination of those factors will usually make me lose interest. That's why I enjoyed Legend of Mana and Romancing Saga, but not Oblivion.

Not that I like all of the things asociated with Japanese RPGs. At the moment I have zero interest in playing future Final Fantasies.
