196  Media / General Games / HoMM V on: June 05, 2006, 12:33:36 PM
Hey, I liked IV! Mostly I liked it because of something V lacks, which is the ability to use your hero like a stack, and being able to have more than one hero in an army.

Still, this game is very much like III with updated graphics. Still enjoyable, though, and Necropolis can be used well if you get good necromancy for your hero.

Simple and Easy Ropa Viejo con Rizzo


- 1 Large can Goya Black Beans (frijoles negros)
- 1 lb whole or shredded (and defrosted): pork, chicken, beef, fish (your choice)
- 1/4 cup Sriracha hot sauce (aka Chicken Chilli)
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tbsp oil
- salt to taste

1. Heat the oil in a large skillet or wok
2. Cook the meat over high heat until it starts to brown
3. Pour the entire can of black beans in and turn down heat to medium
4. Pour in the hot sauce and then the chilli and stir evenly
5. Let simmer for 5-10 minutes, making sure to stir occasionally to keep beans from sticking.
6. Remove from heat and serve over white rice.

FF3 I'll reneg on, since the problem was the monitor I was playing on at the show, but aside from what Mark said about Contact, it also has really poor controls when using the d-pad, which I think, even though it uses the stylus, shouldn't be so awful.

Yo yo yo!

This is actually Chrissy/Sango as opposed to Damian; I think my account died; I guess that happens on occasion when you never log in. >>;;  Fancy that. >>;;

Anyways, I'm in the Media room now & it's full of EXCITEMENT!, except not 'cause it's just the Media room.  But else where there are 5 HALLS OF EXCITEMENT!!!  I know this because a sign told me so.  Words don't lie.

So, other than losing our friggen' luggage, things are going well.  I won a sweatshirt from Mountain Dew before even entering the door this morning, which is great 'cause I don't have any clothes.  Then Dami & I rushed over to get an appointment with Natsume, which will happen tomorrow.  Harvest Moon DS is looking sweet; you can marry a witch & a mermaid & whatnot.  Then we slid over to Square-Enix's booth and gots some slimes.  Children of Mana and Dawn of Mana look like fun cookies for the eating.  I saw some toys; lots of keyblades and shizzle, Advent Children kiddies, you know.  There's also some summon and monster toys that are going to be out this fall, including an end-boss version Kefka, which I think I want, 'cause I don't want any of the other stuff.

I got to go to Atlus this year!!  So exciting!!  I got a big 'ol Jack Frost note pad thingie.  Very sexay.  And Bumpy Trot soundtracks.  Wheeeeeee!  I like getting stuff.  We saw oodles of stuff; there's gonna be new Trauma Center for the Wii, but I guess we're not coving it; same with Rule of Rose.  That's a game about creepy lil girls lifting up their skirts and killing people on zepplins.  I guess I'll go over the actual games we're going over on some official thing, but there were a lot, so get excited!!  Yay exclamation marks!!!!  I think I'm gonna try to be productive now, so wish me luck. o:

26, Male, live in Piscataway, NJ in a basement apartment that is really quite spacious but with low ceilings (that I've gotten used to).

I currently work as a science/math teacher at a catholic school, as teaching is my profession.

I should have a pic, but am too lazy to link to it.

Finally, I enjoy gaming, reading, board/card games, music, and yeah, that's about it.
202  The Rest / General Discussions / All time favourite game characters. on: March 08, 2006, 09:36:11 AM
I have an odd group of favorites, I suppose.

First off, while not the favorite favorite, my most recent favorite is Senel Coolidge from Tales of Legendia. The reason why is that out of all the incredibly cliche characters in the game, and the absurd plot, he manages (at least until the end when he succumbs to the whiny fuckwit mentality of the game) to do what I would expect someone in the real world to do.

Will: "Gee, Senel, let's go help random person because it's the right thing to do eve though we don't know them, and now I'll hit you on the head."

Senel: "Fuck you, you're a nutjob, I'm leaving."

Chloe: "But Coolidge, you have to be true to yourself."

Senel: "What are you talking about?! People are trying to kill my sister, fuck you, I'm going!"

Norma: "Let's have a positive attitude and do a dance!"

Senel: "They're toturing my sister to death! Are you all crazy?!"

The Nameless One from Planescape Torment is a personal favorite because, well, if you need it explained, you haven't played the game and really should.

Guybrush f'in Threepwood, for keepin' it real in the CaRIBbean.

Lucca because she's a hot brainy chick, and I love those. Especially the glasses.

Mai Shiranui because I think she's hot, even though Christine thinks she's gross.

Afraid we only take material that hasn't been published on another site. But thank you for the offer anyway, and if you write anything new, we'll take that.
