1981  The Rest / General Discussions / Holiday Wish List on: December 14, 2007, 08:57:32 AM
-New buttons for my coat. I've been losing buttons left and right lately, so I need new ones.
-A Xen MP3-player. My old one is falling apart, but I really like it, so it would be wonderful if I could get a similar model to replace it. I doubt this is going to happen though, these players were discontinued years ago...
-another Timcanpy plushy
-a nice sweater

Would the PSP's battery last a whole schoolday if I used the sleep feature? Maybe I could try that... I'll have to find some new PSP games though, but most of the RPGs are either a) ports, b) bad or c) both >_<

I'm kinda interested in mobile gaming. I travel 3.5 hours a day, up to five times a week by train. I read the free newspapers and do some homework. I do own a handheld system, but most games don't have quick save options, so they aren't particularly good for trainrides.

Too bad I don't live in Japan and don't speak a word of Japanese...

Zwarte means 'black'. Piet is just a common name, like Pete or Peter.

Employment company Westaff, which supplies stores with red-robed, white-bearded Father Christmases, had earlier asked its Santas to say "ha ha ha" because the word "ho," which is American slang for whore, could offend women, media reported.

Not the first time I heard it either. I read about it in Dutch newspapers a week or so ago.

Yep, the PSone system is emulated, but the PS3 also has some of the PS2's old hardware, since the Emotion Engine is a pain in the ass to do anything with. I've heard they removed the backwards compatibility from some of the newer PS3s though...

Santa is offensive? His prototype, Sinterklaas, has black servants who don't get paid a dime and are all named Piet. Nobody complains about that. Okay, some people complain, but we laugh at them, because Zwarte Piet is awesome.

The children that still believe in Santa Claus or Sinterklaas don't know anything about prostitutes or slavery, it is not part of their world. Ho Ho Ho is what Santa's friendly and heart warming laughter sounds like. Zwarte Piet is Sinterklaas' funny sidekick and without him Sinterklaas wouldn't be able to do his job. We all thought like this once, it's a sad thing (some very vocal) adults can't go back to that innocent way of thinking; they see offence in everything.
1988  The Rest / General Discussions / Best worst video reviews on: November 22, 2007, 01:52:11 PM
I've watched most of the RPGs reviews and learned this:
1. They like RPG's (this is mentioned a few times)
2. But dialogue is always slow/boring/tedius/excessive (this is mentioned every review)
3. If it's good, it's the greatest thing EVER.
4. SaGa Frontier is not a bad purchase

Okay, the last one was more of a surprise than anything else. They were actually pretty positive about the game and provided actual arguments to support their conclusion. It greatly contrasts the Final Fantasy VII review which basically said: everything sucks, but it's Final Fantasy and it has three discs, go buy it!!

Also recommended: Secret of Evermore review

I like how they say the N64's hardware will be extremely beneficial to the RPG genre.

1992  The Rest / General Discussions / ARGHHHH!!!!! on: November 15, 2007, 02:54:00 AM
Well, I was playing some old SNES RPG on my laptop (yeah, ROM= bad, but I'm not going to pay €50 for a game with text I can't even read) and I was halfway through most of them. One day I asked my dad to install Office 97 while I was at school. "No problem" he said. When I came home for school and turned my laptop on, a very clean desktop greeted me. I looked through my folders, well no, I didn't, they were gone. My dad's reaction: "Office 97? I thought you asked me to reinstall Windows 98."

Edit: And no, he didn't install Office 97 after reinstalling Windows 98. I had to do that myself. I had to sacrifice a whole evening to get all my favoriete software back on my laptop.
1993  The Rest / General Discussions / Your favorite glitches, what are they? on: November 09, 2007, 04:28:25 AM
I don't remember exactly what I did in Ogre Tactics: The Knight of Lodis, but I think it involved cloning a zombie angel knight (angel knight died, I resurrected it, I think...) and then snapping the clone to get a Snapdragon sword.
1994  The Rest / General Discussions / I know the CNet community can be retarded, but... on: November 05, 2007, 02:36:40 PM
I voted for the L block multiple times as well. Not because I like Tetris that much, but because the character battles have been milked to the bone. Nice to know people agreed with me.

Arc the Lad:Twilight of the Spirits

+Darc's half of the story was pretty damn cool
+Story told from two perspectives
+Environments looked nice

-The other half of the story was a cliché fest (and what kind of name is Kharg anyway? Sounds like the sound my cats makes when she coughing up a hairball...)
-Worst case of Mary Sue-ism EVER
-Had very few strategic elements even though the battlesystem was similar to that of a strategy RPG

Next: Growlanser III
