Target 30 min away has it and is holding one for me :) Success! Thanks Klyde!

Seeing this made my day!! I'm so happy my obsessive search for day 1 releases worked to someones benefit!! Made me feel less like a freakin' nut then I usually do when I go mad of procuring a game or LE.....

And now back to the game.... gee golly guys... this is my first Fire Emblem.... of course there was NO way I was going the casual route.... but wow... its devastating to me when I lose a member.... to think of what I could be missing out on down the road in my play-through.... brutal I tell ya... brutal.... and I'm loving it! Really makes you care.....

EDIT: And I refuse to restart chapters.... seems to me to defeat the purpose... aside from reduce the fun-factor considerably

I ordered the german wizard's edition myself.... book is in english... and even though I am currently playing an english copy of the game I can't freakin' wait for that book to come..... why????..... I don't know.... because every time I get a "new tale" in the game I want to read it in the hard copy damnit..... the wait on delivery is taking FOREVER!!

if you keep watching like a hawk though I'm certain you can score yourself a German or UK edition somewhere on the net.....

if I see anywhere gets one back in stock for retail I'll be sure to post it here.

The picture looks like Pac-Man eating a piece the cake.

holy heck man.... does it ever....
The picture looks like Pac-Man eating a piece the cake.

That's all I can see now. Thanks Ygg XD

If I had the photoshop skills to make it yellow..

I'm working on some art now but later when I'm finished if no one pac-man-ified this yet.....

So I just finished baking a cake. :D An "oreo" cake!

Chocolate sponge. Fresh cream filling with crushed oreos. Chocolate fudge ganache.

Picture! With an uhhhhh, "healthy" slice.



EDIT: Swapped ganash for ganache, thanks Grim.

I would trade a testicle to be able to eat that....

.....Klyde's got severe gut problems for those who have not heard him bitch about.... that slice could put klyde in the hospital.... klyde talks in the third person when discussing this ailment to psychologically sidestep the realization that he cannot safely indulge such things.... klyde's strategy does not work.... klyde weeps....

damn..... sorry to hear that... i was just replying to your other post wishing you luck.... there is always the option of a short road trip (call first and make sure their selling it, as they are not supposed to until wed. according to my local target folk)

as for the game.... i think this may finally be what I needed to break me of my problem with handhelds... granted i've only been playing for about 2 hours but its sure has been an impressive 2 hours!

For whomever is hit by the shipping delay and hadn't pre-ordered/paid/been set on a retail copy and/or the retail bonus, the game IS out on the 3DS eShop tomorrow.

Scratch that (unless you're on the East Coast), it's out right now.

That would be me :( Called the Gamestop in Indy and they won't get it until Friday. I didn't want to play the game this week apparently.

Try target even if you are on the east coast.... I live in Northeast Pennsylvania and I just walked out of target an hour ago with my copy.... I walked over to gamestop and grabbed the artbook of a cancelled pre-order immediately after...... tis' a goooooood day!

Thanks D!! I'm actually trying to talk him into the whole Rugrats gang with Angelica squaring off against Reptar as a backdrop :) For the time being though here is the pencil drawing of chuckie....

So I've finally been able to play it since my friend visited. I really like it. Oliver is kind of dense, but it looks really pretty and the story is interesting so far, along with a pretty good battle system. But the difficulty does spike after reaching the desert.

wait until you get a little freedom to start exploring..... not only are areas accessible with baddies who completely own you before you can select "escape" but a few boss battles that followed left me coffee-less and nickle and diming em' with straight up physical attacks praying for healing sphere drops to survive.... i'm a gluten for this kinda stuff... luv it

Just realized it's been over a month since I fixed my PS3's YLOD and it's still going strong.  Fuck yeah.

that actually is quite the feat.... congrats

this will prove a blessing to me.... not only does it give me more ni no time but the odds of scoring a pre-order someone doesn't pick up because they "had to have it" and got the digital version has just increased dramatically!
851  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Community Photo Thread: 5th Anniversary Edition on: February 03, 2013, 04:58:15 PM
This could officially be one of the worst photos of me ever.... I had to share it with you guys-LoL..... taken last night by my clients girlfriend post his first session on his new rugrats tattoo...



didn't have a chance to brush my hair or anything before coming into work yesterday... this is like... "klyde right out of bed"-mode
852  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: February 03, 2013, 04:49:11 PM
I actually think her leaving will be a blessing, as it gives me time to maybe build up that critical self esteem I lack, or maybe moreso discern if it's something real or just infatuation. I mean, I spent all of last night just pondering about earlier that evening...but a friend of mine did clarify that I really don't know much about her, outside of that she's amazingly pretty and gets along well with my sister. Besides that, she's spending the day with her family and then leaving tonight or tomorrow morning, so any oppertunity to speak to her is officially out the window anyways.

Probably all for the best then I suppose.... I just know I can't wait when it comes to such matters... I would need to express myself in that situation to return my focus to other things in life.... but once again, I wouldn't deem my advice wise... I've just never been the type to sit and idle when it comes to stuff like that.... Hesitation and lack of action has cost me too many cool opportunities especially when it comes to females and relationships...
853  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: February 03, 2013, 03:49:21 PM
There is the one issue of her leaving for military basic training today or tomorrow, forget which. She probably won't be back here til.....fuck I dunno when. My sister's not even remotely disconcerted by the idea of me trying to hook up with her (mostly because she knows that I'm a chickenshit who won't work the nerve up). I think she'd be happy with the idea because she knows I'm far less stupid and more caring and considerate then most of the guys they know.

I haven't been this distracted by a lady since I was in grade school...I forgot how much this feeling sucks. But damn she's beautiful.

well.... this is probably horrible advice.... but hot damn man, you must act fast!! or at least I would.... it would bother the piss out of me if she left and I didn't at least express myself.....

but I wouldn't want to make things too over the top considering she is leaving and probably more concerned about that than anything else and you don't won't to come off as insensitive by over-complicating things for her ATM..... Soooo... I would probably go about it like this.... I would use her leaving as a segway into the expression of my feelings... something to the the effect of "hey, you know what? I got to thinking about your going away and all and it really made me realize just how much I think you freakin' rock! I just needed you to know that." then I would proceed to honestly express what you have already said here..... continuing with  (after a brief chuckle at myself for beginning to spill the beans) "no seriously though, I haven't been so impressed by a female since detention, being grounded and homework were the banes of my existence."...... now here is the key to the whole plan... ready???..... you immediately move into a new (prepared) topic you can easily bullshit with her about. This is super-important. See, you've delivered a message that can cultivate in her mind, the impact of which can lead to a very awkward moment if given the opportunity.... however if you immediately move into something to get her train of thought of the gravity of what you've said into something positive and engaging you accomplish a number of things.... the most important of which is the reduction of a chance of rejection because you haven't actually provided her the opportunity yet to reject you....

voooo-waaaahhh-lahhhh!! message delivered, you feel better, she'll be off at boot camp dreaming about your hot ass because you left her with the notion that you'll be doing the same.... she gets back, you live happily ever after....

..... in all honesty though, this is really what I would do.... I've never been rejected when I've just been honest, down to earth in my delivery and somewhat strategic about the follow up convo... though I do have a tendency to be blunt and open to a fault which I know has made for some uncomfortable moments, I can't recall any really turning out badly.... the only time things have fallen to pieces in my efforts to express such affections in the past is when I make things SEEM WAAAAAY MORE SERIOUS then in fact they are.... I mean, think about it... your clearly not a freakin' unintelligable cave troll and all your doing is expressing to her that you feel she is superior to other females in your eyes... there is NO reason that any female would recieve that negatively unless it was accompanied with a thick slab of "creepy-weirdo-semi-obsessive-ness".

EDIT: Objectively speaking, I would take any advice Dice offers long before mine by the way.... I really never know what the hell I'm doing in life, but I just thought I'd offer you how I would go about it. Good luck friend!
854  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fire Emblem 3DS on: February 03, 2013, 03:24:14 PM
Gee golly I hope I can find this game tomorrow... I really dropped the ball on pre orders lately.... between missing this (not thinking gamestop we cut off pre-orders like 3-4 weeks ago...) and getting the steel-case of Ni No Kuni instead of the Wizards Edition I feel like I'm slipping.... thank goodness the German amazon saved me with Ni No or I'd be reeeeeal upset..... I think I'm gonna try my local wal mart tonite at like 1 am for this-LoL
855  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on: February 01, 2013, 06:22:10 PM
Just beat the game, now messing around in post game, bounties and quests a plenty. The final boss was pretty cake, but I was SERIOUSLY overleveled (heroes are all 80+). Overall, I give the game a solid 8.5. The gameplay was fun, but the tame rate for creatures sucks way too much, especially when you're trying to catch them for quests. All the excess attempts caused a bit of a level spike, making everything pitifully easy. The story is great, but it starts to become pretty easy to see coming, and I didn't like how they pulled the old 80% of the game villian is in fact not the major villian baloney, it always sours my taste buds (though it does get surprising at the absolute last second though, I chuckled for it). The music was catchy....til you realize that there is only 1 fucking song playing the whole game. Sort of a late kick in the balls, but I'll eat it. Honestly, my gripes are miniscule regarding the game, Level-5 did a great job making an old rpg here, and I'm gonna use the term old because this is an rpg of olden days. Fuck the wrpgs and jrpgs of today, they're both crappy 9 times out of 10. This reminded me of games like chrono cross, ffvii, pokemon, and so forth. So much freedom to explore, places to go, stuff to do. I was always occupied with this game, and had to force myself away at times to relax and level out from gaming. Last time I did that was probably FFIX or X. This is easily my most enjoyed week and a half in years, and I spent most of it sick and achey.

One suggestion for anyone who is still on the fence or even just starting, take the time to read everything and not speed past it. The language used is quite entertaining, especially the fairies' english slang. It's downright comical at times.

You sir, play games like a demon! LoL

I only say that because I know we both started playing literally within hours of one another and I'm not even close to done... I've been playing for like 30 hour or so which is a record for me.... typically I can only get in 1 or 2 hours a day at best.... but I agree with just about everything you said in your mini-review.... I feel so excited to play, just like a freakin' kid again.... this game is gold....
