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"

and...

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....

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)

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

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 :)
985  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...

Wow.... its a good day to be a fan of NISA localizations! God of Fate has me excited as well... Now just show me the LE's so I can open my wallet.... I am such a sucker for NISA bonus junk.... can't wait for my hyperdimension lunch pale in a few weeks :) LoL
987  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 on: February 22, 2013, 02:55:48 PM
Just to wrap it up, would you (so far) put these games in the same veins of the last 3 Atelier games (Rorona, Totori and Meruru) in which each one vastly improves on the predecessor ?

I'll keep looking for info for MK2 until the end of the week.

Thats is tough for me  because I have yet to crack open Totori or Meruru after erroneously not listening to the sound advice I was given about skipping Rorona... my romp through arland as Rorona left a BAD taste in my mouth..... I still have both LE's of the following titles sealed on my shelf-LoL

However....

1 is a pretty abysmal game.  mk2 significantly improves its combat system, but I wasn't impressed by the rest of it. 

I completely agree with this.... the battle system in 1 made it un-playable to me..... you can't even heal at your own discretion.... mk2 on the other hand doesn't simply amend things, but incorporates completely different gameplay mechanics in regard to battles. once again (not to echo myself) but the system proved enjoyable enough to keep me playing to the end in spite of the titles other short-comings.

I pass the savings onto the consumer!

In all seriousness I can't stand all the smoking laws. I don't care for smoking or clouds of smoke but things are getting a bit extreme. The thing I would like to see enforced is being fined for throw cig butts all over.

SOMEONE BUY KLYDE's GAME

I couldn't agree more! Smoking restrictions and taxes are one of the few things politically I do feel somewhat strongly about... particularly how they did away with flavored cigs in the US.... and I'm with you on the fines for cigarette buts as well... I'm not an environmentalist by any stretch but, even as a heavy smoker, I find the volume of cigarette-litter alarming whenever I'm in town (i live outside of the hustle and bustle)....

hmmmmm.Klyde, check your PM's buddy

You sir have been PM'ed back... I am gonna run over to the single-player-rpg topic and triple check about any regional issues.... LoL
989  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nippon Ichi's Project: D "Disgaea D2" for PS3, 2013 on: February 21, 2013, 05:16:43 PM

oooooooo I hope they make the classic laharl outfit bonus DLC or something when they localize this!!! Plus I didn't see anything that looked like the old item world! I really am getting excited.....

.....I can't wait to see what the LE for this one contains!! I hope we get more little figurines.... gee golly disgaea makes me happy...

Drop the high and mighty sober attitude if you're a chain smoker :)

***BIG LOL**** ^^ first thing that made me laugh out-loud in ages.... thank you....

in my defense I said I am sober... I never once said I was no longer addicted to anything..... but yea.... I suppose no matter how you slice it, the amount of cigarettes I smoke certainly degrades the "quality of my sobriety"..... but hey I quit cigars! this time last year I was emptying my wallet on Romeo and Juliets along with Monte Cristos and inhaling the dastards!!..... i quit when I realized I could buy a new game each week and still save money with what I was spending..... so I'm making progress baby!!

NOTE: i will never stop saying dastards after playing fire emblem by the way...

Additional Note: Because Yoda's post made me happy I will now drop the price  of Ni No down to 34 US dollars..... Thank Yoda for making me laugh :)
