Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest - It had some awesome music. Doom Tower theme = win. Oh and killing the boss with a basic cure spell is just too funny. Perfect example of bad balance done right.

Saga Frontier - I doubt I'm ever going to replay this, because most of it was rather crappy and repetitive, but the game was very original and innovative in places. Asellus story was like a fucked up (in a good way) version of Revolutionary Girl Utena, which says a lot since Utena itself is already gloriously weird. Other stories had some weird sense of humor and random bits of awesomeness. "A drunk joined your party!" Or kicking the final boss' ass in a weddingdress. The game was insane in all the right ways, but character quests like Lute's left a bitter taste...

Vanguard Bandits - Gets points for not taking itself too seriously. One of the few games that really suited Working Design's localisation style.

Final Fantasy Adventure - Metal Chocobo. Sword of Mana would have been much better with a cyborg Chocobo :(

Jade Cocoon - Because it didn't use the "save the world!" thing and instead focused on that small village, taking its time to actually develop its residents as characters and give the place a history.

Okage: Shadow King: Sure the game had its unique graphics, but it's the story that makes it really stand out for me.
Code:
Later on in the story Ari, the boy who is overshadowed by his own shadow, is forgotten by all the other characters because of his inability to stand up for himself and leave an impression. Even when he stands right in someone's face people don't notice he's there and he ends up in a town filled with people who were forgotten by the world.
It also had one of the best "the world is a creation of some mad genius!" plottwists ever. A whole world created by an overprotective father for his only daughter. The guy loses his daughter in this world and builds a doll in her image in a desperate attempt to continue the fantasy he created. Meanwhile his daughter is stuck in the same town as the hero and refuses to leave the house, because she is afraid no one will be able to see her. She lost her sense of self, because of her fear of interacting with the rest of the world.
The story had an surprising amount of depth for an RPG that doesn't bash your head in with the German-philosopher mallet.

Just finished Trace Memory... a day before my birthday. It was a charming little game, but the timing made it more special :)

I've seen worse (on TV), it was that filthy, and there was a month old corpse in it... which was why they searched the apartment in the first place, the corpse had started leaking fluids through the ceiling of the apartment below it.

I got the game Saturday (much faster than I expected!). I went to the postoffice on Friday and they said it could take one week. Oh, since I needed two stamps anyway, I put a small pack of quality liquorice in there, thought you might like it.

I wanted to make a Xenosaga joke, but I can't think of any...

Hey, I have good reasons! Medical reasons even.

What I don't get are all those meat replacement products that look like meat, are supposed to taste like meat, but are not meat. If don't eat meat, why pretend you do?
1852  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Mmm... Yum! on: September 13, 2008, 12:27:03 PM
Probably because lobsters aren't cute. It can't beg you not to eat it with expressive eyes and cuddly fur.
1853  Media / Brush and Quill / Re: Look, I'm being creative! Fear the NES bracelets! on: September 13, 2008, 12:17:54 PM
I might as well post the list here :)

GBA
Fire Emblem
Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation 2

DS
Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney
Drone Tactics
Lost in Blue 1/2/3
Lost Magic
Magical Star Sign
Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time
Touch Detective

PSP
Brave Story
Jeanne d'Arc
Yggdra Union

PS2
Dawn of Mana
Drakengard 2
Grandia III
Grandia Xtreme
Magic Pengel: The Quest for Color
Rogue Galaxy
Shining Force EXA

That's what I'm looking for. I'm willing to trade atleast two bracelets of your choice for whatever game from the list. I can make those NES-bracelets, bracelets with pixel art, bracelets with words, traditional bracelet patterns... logos or symbols that aren't overly complex can be used as well. And, I have lots of colours to choose from.

Some examples of bracelets I made for others:

Space Invaders
Naruto village symbol thingy
Hellgirl symbol

Edit:

Finished Dincrest's bracelet:

The problem is, the Euro is going very strong right now. If I were to charge you the same as my Dutch customers and make you pay for shipping, one bracelet would cost you 15$ (Canadian). So, I was thinking... maybe we can trade? There are some GBA, DS, PS2 and PSP games I want and games are pretty cheap in the US and Canada. I wouldn't mind giving you 3 (or even more!) bracelets for a game that will cost you less than $20

Heh, hadn't even thought of that. Though it's certainly true, most people can't eat something they've seen alive.

You not eating meat contributes to global warming. I'm doing my part in eating meat so there's less cows, pigs etc. farting and shitting and releasing CO2 into the atmosphere.

The reason why there are so many cows, pigs etc. is because there are so many people who want to eat some meat every day. It's not as if those pigs artificially inseminate themselves and promote their offspring's meat through government sponsored commercials :P

There is no crochet or stitching involved, one NES bracelet is made with about 800 tiny knots :) The material isn't every expensive ($1 at most with the current exchange rate), but one bracelet like that takes 3 hours to make. Granted, I can tie knots while I watch TV, but it's not as if I could work any faster if I didn't have the TV on...

Anyway, here are some more bracelets:



And some more traditional ones:

Would eating a dog really be that bad? It's not like you knew it, kept it as a pet or anything. It's anonymous meat, there is no need to be sentimental about it. A dog isn't worth more than a pig, unless you're talking about the sentimental value only a pet can have.

This kind of makes me glad I'm a vegetarian. I don't have to worry about ethics too much when eating a meal :P

The duck fetus looked really disgusting, but the rest of the article didn't really creep me out. Dead dog doesn't look any creepier than dead cow or dead pig.

The "Steve, don't eat it!" thing had more repulsive food. Rat meat is rat meat, dog meat is dog meat, but the stuff in there can't be identified as meat, or food in general for that matter.
1859  Media / Brush and Quill / Re: Look, I'm being creative! Fear the NES bracelets! on: September 12, 2008, 03:23:22 PM
Okay, so what would you be willing to pay for something like that?
1860  Media / Brush and Quill / Re: Look, I'm being creative! Fear the NES bracelets! on: September 12, 2008, 01:28:34 AM
@ Dincrest, if I could figure out how to best get to your location, I wouldn't mind making one for you.

@ everluck, I'm starting a little crafts club with some other peole who are into crafts and anime/manga/games. We plan to sell our stuff at conventions. Right now I also sell some things online, but it's for the Dutch only.

@ Castnuri, D-rider, Kstar, thanks! I also made some bracelets with space invaders and other classic sprites. I'll show those later.
