For me it's definitely The Big Hit starring Mark Wahlberg, Lou Diamond Philips, and China Chow.  It's so awful that it's awesome.  Me and three friends all saw it the weekend before we started high school (after elementary and middle school together, the four of us were being split between three different places) and oh man was it good/bad.

Travis Baldree and Max "that's my hammer" Schaeffer of RunicGames are showing off a new trailer for TL2 and announcing the release date at PAX in about 30 minutes. A few outlets have leaked that release date, saying it's September 20th. If that's wrong, feel free to call me out on it and call me a jerkbutt. If I'm right...  &*^$ YES THREE WEEKS!!!

(sorry for the double post. I know that dp can be annoying)

Bytor where do you live? That generic ass stripmall looks familiar.


Every fucking suburb in america looks like that
No kidding. You could have told me that's the BB&B closest to where I grew up in Virginia and I'd have believed you.

Haven't made much progress in Twilight Princess, but I've made it up to Ilia in FE6.  Lance is only at level 7 promoted and has already hit a few caps.  Lilina's Speed is non-shit, so she is even more effective than my pretty-good Lugh.  Geese wasn't getting decent growths, but Gonzales turned out great (with help from a Secret Book or two) and is my best axe user.  MVPs so far are Dieck, Lilina, and Lance, with Gonzo catching up in a big way. 

Also want to start a PS3 run soon.  Thinking either Valkyria Chronicles or 3D Dot Game Heroes.  Probably fire it up next week.

I watched four episodes of Kuroko, then wrote an impossibly nerdy article trying to figure out who would win in a match between Shohoku and Seirin: blog post link.

Ah, my bad. 100% of my chip tunes knowledge comes from MAGFest concerts.

Who's arranging them?  Any pros like Virt or Inverse Phase?

THis is my second time playing through FE6; the first time was several years ago, around 2006 or 2007.  In my first run, my MVPs of the first half of the game were Rutger, Alan, Lilina, Oujay, Thany, Wolt, and (somehow) Lot.  Dieck wasn't great the first time around, so I successfully replaced him with Oujay.  When I picked up Geese Howard and The Great Gonzo last time they were both okay for taking down wyverns, but not as good as Lot.  Yes, I realize that I probably had the best Lot ever, because nobody likes Wade or Lot on forums for whatever reason (pro tip: the reason is that their stats are awful and I got lucky and won the Lot-tery).  

This playthrough is totally different, with Rutger and Thany underwhelming, the two axe fighters both sucking it up, and Dieck turning out so well that I don't think Oujay is worth it.  I didn't use any armor knights my first run through FE6, and that's probably happening again.  I've only had her for maybe 1.5 chapters, but Fir is having the same damage problems that Rutger has (her Str growth is worse than his, so it makes sense), so I'll probably have Roy, Dieck, Alan, Lance, and maybe a promoted Nomad or Pegasus handle sword duties (I don't have any promoted yet).  I plan to pick up both potential Berserkers and I'm going to raise them as carefully as possible, even if I have to use savestates to give Gonzo an extra point of Skill or Res.  I'm still using Alan and Wolt, but they're just being mediocre and not hitting the awesome levels that Lance is.  Seriously.  Lance had 18-20 in Speed, Skill, and Str before promotion and his Def/Res was a totally reasonable 11/4 before promotion.  His HP is all right and his Luck is maybe right around or a little below Lance's average.  I've played FE7 and FE8 multiple times and I've never had an early-game Cavalier turn out so well.  I'm going to try and roll the Ilia route in the late game and give Lance the best lance, heh.

Rolling through a new playthrough of FE6.  Roy is turning out okay, but Speed might be a problem.  Lugh, Dieck, and Lance are turning out great and will soon be my first level 20s - I have promotion items ready for all three.  The two axe fighters are terrible.  Shelving Thany and Rutger because neither one is getting any STR.  I'm babying Lilina a little, but she's getting great levels-up early on and already has the same MAG as Lugh despite being five levels behind.  Debating whether Oujay or Wendy is worth the trouble, not sure if I'm going to train either one yet.  Just picked up Lalum, Shin, and Fir, and will probably use all three in the next chapter and see how their levels work out.  What I *really* need is a decent axe user, which should happen soon when I pick up Geese and Gonzo.

Party was a success in general, but people didn't drink enough beer!  We still have at least 40-50 beers between two fridges at our place. 

I loved the old FuncoLand near me - it was where I bought my SNES, PS1, and Dreamcast and several of my favorite games growing up.  There was also a great independent store near me called Starland that went out of business while I was still in college, around 2008 or thereabouts.  Sad to see it go.  Sadder to see all the old game chains combine into GameStop so they could fend off the Best Buys and Wal-Marts.

The roommate and I bought around $300 of beer and liquor for a big party.  We're going to make House Party look like House Party 2.

Beat the bear guy in MMX5 and got an E tank. Still feel like I'm missing items. Also not sure how the parts system works.
The parts system is kinda BS.  Basically, you can choose between a parts boost whenever you beat a boss, but only if certain conditions are met.  The easiest way to maximize it is to get a few Game Overs at the beginning of the game and not beat any bosses until the countdown is below 10.  That way you'll always have a choice of parts.  MMX5 is an okay MMX game, but it has some dumb trappings surrounding it.

Yeah... that's one thing that's neat AND frustrating about Fire Emblem games.  You can play the same game twice and use a totally different team (usually not by choice in my case) by the way the RNG works.  The first time I played FE6 I had the most amazingly blessed Gonzales and Lilina I've ever seen or heard of with an A support to boot (poor Roy didn't marry anyone).  The second time I played FE6, Gonzo was only okay and Lilina never got speed.  Unless you're in Hard mode and need things to go your way a little more, I think it's best to go into a FE game with an open mind when it comes to recruitment.  

Mostly unrelated: how possible would it be to do an Ike + mounted characters only playthrough in Path of Radiance?  I'm looking at character sheets and there are a BUNCH of great cavalry and a few solid air units.  I'd hurt for magic damage but that's maybe about it. 
524  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fire Emblem entry on: August 22, 2012, 09:24:00 PM
MU can pair with something like 9-10 characters (heterosexual relationships only, so something like 5 for each sex) and can give birth / father a child.  

EDIT: oh wow I'm totally wrong.  After doing some research, apparently My Unit can marry ANY CHARACTER in the game, including the Lord.  Basically, MU is a second main character that can marry / support anyone.  Heterosexual only.  I shouldn't go running my mouth like that. 

...Honestly, I'd be more interested in Kakusei if it was on something besides the 3DS, but I'm a 3DS disdainer so there ya go.  I'm currently (finally) starting Shadow Dragon and will probably fire up Path of Radiance later this year.  It's been too long since I've had a Fire Emblem kick.

Still working on Twilight Princess, but also messing around with Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon in my spare time.  I restarted my game when Frey got a level up with no stats in one of the prologue chapters....
