I have stone steps that lead to my house.... last night at 4am I wanted a protein bar from my car (I keep it in there because I'm not supposed to eat them, they make me very sick.... but I indulge every so often as a treat-LoL)..... so I my excitement and haste I slipped.... my tailbone bounced off the concrete like a freakin' super ball..... today it hurts just to play ni no kuni.... i have had some injuries boy, but this one SUCKS!!

in other news.... I finished a rugrats tattoo i am sort of fond of... typically I don't post anything here unless it is gaming or anime related but well.... its rugrats so its ok :)

tomorrow i will have a pic of vegeta to go with my Goku from last week!!

I'm actually playing around with the idea of joining a strongman competition in a couple years if I keep training like this. I mean, I'm good at it, I enjoy doing it, and unlike my terrible video game addiction, this is healthy.

I can totally relate to that sentiment... I've always felt like my being an avid runner somehow counter-balances my gaming habit....

Kudos to you D for your ambitions to become a strongman :)

Well that is all.... I'm off to find a photon avatar with idiot written on his forehead as a result of my ni no kuni thread blunder.....

Oh it wasn't THAT huge a spoiler. All you spoiled was how stuff happened, if you actually played the game, you saw it coming a mile away.

I just put myself in the position of having what I said spoiled... and when I do that, I think I would want to kill me.....

In any event, I can't say I really saw all that coming. Then again (as demonstrated in this thread) I'm clearly not the sharpest player on block now am I-LoL

Holy heck guys, I AM SOOOOOO SORRY..... I feel like I should change my avatar to a picture of photon with "idiot" marker-printed on his forehead..... I can't believe I used the wrong forum code yesterday..... I usually double check my posts via preview  but I was in a rush to get to a tattoo yesterday......

All I can say is I screwed up big time.... thank goodness it doesn't appear my mishap ruined things for anyone....

Eusis, thank you so much for fixing that for me.... Your my hero now and I wish to reward you.... when I've got time (probably this saturday or sunday) I will dig through some of my RPG merchandise and find something to send you as a gift :) I'll PM you so as not to clog-up the topic with pictures of import keychains and figurines-LoL

This was serious business.... people have done bad things to me and life, but those who have spoiled RPG's on me are the only ones I have held grudges against, LoL....

Sorry, and thank you all sincerely for your forgiveness.

Hey, this is out today!  Also, you can get access to an RPGFan-exclusive quest in the game.

Deets here: http://www.rpgfan.com/news/2013/1130.html

I was actually gonna skip EO IV until I saw this..... I never played the other EO titles and dungeon crawlers usually are not my thing.... but an RPGFan exclusive quest!!??? HOW FREAKIN' COOL!!!! So I couldn't help myself.... rent may be due in 2 days, but I had to pick up the LE of this yesterday.... now if I could just find the wherewithal to meander my way through the rest of Fire Emblem.... In truth I really wanna give up on FE as it is effectively boring the hell out of me at this point.........
830  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on: February 27, 2013, 04:36:20 PM
I just gotta say, 52 hours in here.... and this game has not even become remotely stale to me!!! I have yet to even have a desire to put anything else in (and that is tough with Tales of Vesperia and Skies of Arcadia, both recently acquired, staring down from my shelf at me).....

I'm not saying peoples complaints about this title have not been valid... but truly what game isn't void of some flaws, with the exception of FF6 and chrono trigger-LoL (that was a joke folks.... please don't let an onslaught of CT and FF hate ensue....)..... flaws and all Ni No is a true RPG gem to me...

I have just.....

.... beaten shadar and saw everyone in ding dong dell turn into creatures thanks to the white witch! I was really curious to see how she entered the picture and I love how they sort of set up that "false ending" type of vibe while all the while your going in the back of your mind "are they really gonna leave so many questions unanswered for the possibility of direct sequel or is there more to this???".... lets face it, most plot twists become relatively predicatable as they draw near so it really boils down to execution for me.... this one, was executed well in my book

Well that is all I gotta say..... I freakin' love this game.

I finally started using the crunchyroll account I have had for years now... I am determined to evolve beyond my affinity for only dubs on account of only the cool stuff I can only watch subbed..... maybe soon I can join in on all the cool "current season" talk-LoL

For the time being though I am watching Humanity has Declined on CR and wow.... thats all I can accurately say thus far...

In non-sub related viewing, playing Ni No Kuni got me wondering about all the Ghibli stuff I turned a blind eye to throughout the years... recently watched ponyo and tales from earthsea...... neither really wowed me beyond the visuals though.... although ponyo's creeper of a father was cool....

Lastly I decided to rewatch the idiot adventures of photon earth.... man, I forgot how freakin' entertaining this one was for a quick watch.... ohhhhhh the wonderful anime of yesteryear how I miss thee.....

That's a really good tattoo.  The art looks great.

I'm with ya on cars.  A part of me would like to drive nicer cars, but I don't think it's money well spent.  I've been driving my car for a long time now and book value wise, is near worthless but it runs alright and I don't have a car payment so it's all good to me.

Thanks for looking akanbe!

And yes without a doubt the most important factors in owning a vehicle are:

A. "runs alright"


B. "i don't have a care payment"

lastly a distant third for me is....

C. radio and heat works (i've gone without both.... neither is pleasant-LoL)

Precision, patience, and a steady hand --- NONE of theses are something I have. 

I can try, but it may be like a tattoo-sketch, with lines going every which way and vaguely looking like a thing you wanted.  I admire tat artists for basically getting something done in one, basically, "good copy". o_o

I'm gonna let you in on a little secret..... tattooing is nothing like you imagine it to be.... I am certain I can teach anyone how to do a good tattoo so long as their intellect is slightly greater than your average  monkey.... tattooing is also NOTHING like you see on tv.... tattooing is not hard...

Having a steady hand, being patient and precise... hell, even having a working knowledge of art theory and a bit of formal training in that regard.... these things are all bonus' that will lend exceptional qualities to your work... but for the most part doing a good tattoo is learning how to properly re-render an image on skin in a fashion that leaves little chance for error.... this really comes down to a somewhat unorthodox order of operation that is more or less "screw up proof" in the sense that any mistakes you make can be fixed before the client even gets up and checks out their tattoo in the mirror..... 9 out of 10 artists don't understand this and still work in a very mechanical fashion.... they line first, then they shade, then they color, working dark to light.... this typical order of operation for tattooing is VERY SCARY leaving marginal room for visible error you can't do much about (at least until their tattoo is healed).... to put it simply, there is more then one way to "slay a dragon" so to speak and there is always a "safe" approach to each piece.... approach each piece safely if you never have anything to worry about :)

The only thing that bothers me about the visuals in this game are the character's feet.... or lack there-of to be more accurate....
835  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 on: February 23, 2013, 07:04:08 PM

I don't want to have a debate about this, I'm too worn out.

Isn't that the best part of forums...? stimulating debate (not to be confused with pointles opinionated arguments) that is.....

Anyhoo, that aside, your only 7 posts in my friend! don't get winded yet!! LoL.... ok I'm done screwing around... I just wanted to say welcome to the forum, its nice to have another like minded rpg niche fan in our midst :) I sort of jumped the gun and forgot to throw a welcome out there in my last post/reply.

Is it weird that constantly having a camera pointed at me freaks me out? I really don't want the new eyetoy or kinect 2.0 looking at me constantly. Even on my laptop I put a piece of electric tape over the webcam thing.

damn, i never really thought about it.... that is gonna totally freak me out now.... ahhh hell, they can spy on me all they want... all their gonna see is me nervously chain-smoking and accidently ashing all over their fancy lense (I get ashes all over myself when I play games-LoL)
837  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: February 23, 2013, 04:39:15 PM
I wish dice lived by me so I can teach her how to tattoo..... she would make a killing and then I would have someone to tattoo me, LoL
838  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 on: February 23, 2013, 02:40:01 PM
Is it wrong for someone like me to like this game? Because I'm really enjoying the combat, the sub systems, and the characters are really funny and cute. I don't understand how reviewers have to act so purist by condemning the game because it has things in it that they find offensive even though it's just a game and none of the characters exist in real life.

If there is anything wrong with you than it is wrong with me too my friend! I play every single one of these niche titles because I adore the style..... Love NIS for their efforts in bringing these to us... and MK2 aside,  I'll admit some have proved complete and utter major "fails" as far as games are concerned in an objective sense, yet due to my subjective tastes I  enjoyed my time with them more so than I have entertaining some other titles more commonly accepted as "great games"....

As far as reviewing titles such as this goes, I've found RPGfan to be one of the most fair and intelligable communities in that regard....

Took my car in for inspection today.  Need brakes, rusted brake line, rusted rotors... there goes $400.   Also getting annoyed at work.

Thats the max I'll pay for a fix on a car... in truth no matter how well off I am I will always drive a piece of s**t.... I'm just not into cars... I've always had the same routine with them... I buy em for less than a grand outright and when I bump into a fix that costs me more then 500 I just simply buy another and scrap the old one... I'll invest mad money into lots of things but vehicles just are not one of those things....

In either case, I feel for ya my friend... I HATE having to pay for car-crap.... it feels worse then when I gotta drop money for bills and rent and whatnot...

In other news.... I have something better to report to you fine folk than kidney failure this week!! I finished a DBZ tattoo!!! well actually its not done... its gonna be quite large and involving, but I finished Goku :)

EDIT: That is mostly healed results by the way :)
840  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fire Emblem 3DS on: February 22, 2013, 05:24:41 PM
I still don't really grasp a lot of stuff having not ever played a fire emblem.... class advancing, pairing selection et cetera...... I just don't get it (though I imagine as I delve a little deeper it will make more sense or become more thoroughly explained.... I hope).
Class advancing is pretty easy. You can use a master seal on a character over level 10(unless they are in a special class like villager, dancer, or a shape changing class) t advance to an advanced class. In most cases it is best to use the master seal at level 20, at least for the first class change. You can also use second seals to change to different class tress, but that is not necessary to get characters strong enough to beat the game with.

Pairing is.....not really explained in the game. It also only exists in one other Fire Emblem (which does not have an official english release), so having played the others wouldn't help you much there. Quick version is that kids inherit classes and stat growths fom parents along with the last skill that each parent has before you enter the chapter to recruit the kid......long version is go to this page to read up on it: http://www.serenesforest.net/fe13/children.html

Edit: Wait unless you meant the pairing up as in putting two units together on the battlefield.....Forgot about that system. You can get a detailed explanation of that system here: http://www.serenesforest.net/fe13/double.html

Thank you for the info! Mega-helpful :)

I just changed my avatar to a Mem... mema... ummm... mem-sword-wielding-something-or-other.... in either case I look cooler... I love when characters appearance change with class advancing... I'm so shallow...
