Ugh, yes. This was cool the first... few times I experienced it when I started playing JRPGs, but the hundreds after that it's just facepalm-worthy. Can we not get even just a college or work setting? Just for a change? No?

I feel you. I personally can't get into any of those high school themed JRPGs. At my age, the notion alone makes me feel like I'm some kind of weirdo. That's obviously my hang up, of course...

^  Settle down, big fella. There's no need for categorizin'. I didn't exactly put B&B on a pedestal. I simply said that I like it much better. It is the superior film, after all. ;P

^ "Hate" may have been a rather strong word for me to use regarding MP... More like, severely annoyed. I've honestly always liked Bedknobs and Broomsticks much more. Anyway, I agree that Julie Andrews is Mary Poppins. In the way that Harrison Ford is Indiana Jones. I'm so glad the latter will never be replaced.


She [Emily Blunt] was awesome in edge of tomorrow.

Agreed. She totally pulled off the "bad ass" vibe. In a way that Michelle Rodriguez wishes she could.

^ I never understood the popularity of the original Mary Poppins film. I've always thought it was an awful, terrible film. Even when I was a little kid. I remember hating it whenever someone would put it on. So... I guess I'm saying I don't see how a sequel (of sorts) could be much worse.
Plus, it helps that Emily Blunt is somewhat attractive.

Sorry to hear about you being born without a heart.  :P

One could just as easily assume that your teetotalism and aversion to violence is due to a dire lack of balls, you know.
Not me, though. I think you're alright, Arvis.  =)

^ Thank you saying what I was thinking. That's exactly why my aforementioned copy was almost untouched. Tried to play it a couple of times, and was really turned off by the incessant attempts to busy me with mundane, irrelevant tasks. ...At least I made $30 profit from the game.

I'm glad I was able to sell my nearly untouched physical copy for $80 before Nintendo made this decision. It may not hurt their value much at all, but it sure won't help any.

And natros...I still haven't played more than 10 hours of Skies of Arcadia...

RIP Wii U. You tried.

Dang it, I just bought the stupid thing!  Frickin' Xenoblade X is the most expensive dang game I've ever bought....
Seriously...

Wonder if I can turn it around for a few bucks back maybe? I love Xenoblade X and all...but it's done. No reason to go back or anything.

I'll buy your Wii U for 30 bucks plus shipping.  This offer stands indefinitely.

I can vouch for glass. He does good business. Take the offer, D.

^ IIRC, they're going to be playing at a Chicago metal festival this summer, along with some seriously heavy bands. Should prove interesting for concert goers...

^ Nice throwback. I had that game on C64. Related factoid that I recently learned: The part of Gozer in the original film was initially planned for Paul Reubens. That would have been the shit.

Also, sorry to continue jacking this thread (....), but in looking at Surge products on Amazon, I learned that this is a thing:

https://www.amazon.com/Pussy-Natural-Energy-Drink-250ml/dp/B00BOTYGBU/ref=sr_1_7_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1461773090&sr=8-7&keywords=surge


Ok, I'm done. Sorry. Let me get this back on track...

The controller grew on me. It was much lighter than its hefty frame would suggest, and it felt pretty good in hand. The second display would distract me at times, and be completely forgotten during others, but generally it was useful (ESPECIALLY in Xenoblade where the font for the text was designed for people sitting 3 inches from the screen). I caught myself using the screen during smash a lot as well, just easier to react at the closer range. My biggest complaint was how TERRIBLE the network activity was, even with a network adapter.

I'm sure I would have gotten used to the controller with time, but it's just so off-putting at first... At least to me. So yeah, I'm thankful that reaction saved me from buying a quickly dying $300-ish system. ...If there's ever a decent price drop in the future, I may consider getting one for my son. ...but I doubt it.

^ Chill, bruh. Maybe he had every intention to post under Today's News. Shit happens...


Regardless, thank you very, VERY much for sharing this article, Jimmy! I was never really into the Ecto Cooler (although the new cans sound pretty cool), but I just learned Surge is (apparently has been) back!! I was hoping for years that it would happen... then gave up said hope. I practically did a back flip just now. Gonna order some just in time for next week's vacation.

I've been a very happy GC and Wii owner, but I'd seriously like to thank the Pii U's ridiculous controller for turning me off to the system. Saved me some cash/woe. Although... I do have to admit I'd seriously love to try some of the Mario games that were released on it.
I really hope Nintendo doesn't try to go too far outside the box with the NX (which sounds like it may be the case). Nothing wrong with being innovative, of course. ...It shouldn't be at the expense of beneficial 3rd party partnerships, though.

Eternal Blue - Defeated a plant that was also a naked blue lady. Finding Hiro's air spells more useful than I'd head, although idk if I'm gonna bother developing Ronfar's dice things so much. Script complexity stillllll feels about on par with what I need.

Yeah, don't bother with the dice skills. I've played the Sega CD version of the game (U.S. version, anyway) enough times to know that they don't really pay off. "Light/Shining Litany" (the HP absorption healing class spell) pretty much renders them useless.
