Good Morning Vietnam.... I watched that movie a TON when I was a kid. That and Last Emperor. Probably explains my love for Asian women

Please tell me you've seen Air America too.  It runs along exactly the same vein as GMV, only it's 100 times campier.

I watched all of I and beat II and III. Looooots of buildup, but they're pretty good games with very good stories and music. I'd be down with this. PUT IT ON VITA.

What I'd be more down with, though, is a remake of Xenogears. It needs the update far more than Xensaga does.

Was just about to say this...IPs be damned...I WANT A REAL 2ND DISC!!!!!

but after years and years of fan pleas, at this point any talk of a Xgears revival/HD remaster/coherent 2nd half is just....

A Fish Called Wanda - It's a pretty silly film but I'm a sucker for John Cleese.  Also Kevin Kline's character is pretty great.  Also it totally caused this to happen.

 There's just something about 80's movies that I identify with better than what's coming out today.  I think it's maybe because films take themselves to seriously now-a-days.  You could never make Beverly Hills Cop in 2014.

As someone who sold shitty sandwiches for greedy dickheads (jimmy Johns) for almost five years while in college... something like this makes me extremely happy:



If you don't treat low waged or tipped employees well, you are a piece of shit, plain and simple, end of discussion.

Here is a link to the story

http://firstwefeast.com/eat/chipotle-employees-quit-citing-sweatshop-working-conditions/

which OF COURSE focuses more on how the author of the above note used a poor metaphor and less on how working those kinds of menial jobs for long hours, below poverty wages and no benefits is a total bullshit way to be making a living.

I just got this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=trueview-instream&v=Oyo2ilSi2g4 as an ad before another video on Youtube.
Yeah... I'm sure that industrial pot cutting robot is all about medical marijuana making...

Really Youtube? Really?

Lets see...26 lbs is 416 ounces. at roughly 250 an oz that means that those guys are blasting through around 100k worth of marijuana every hour

Is about the saddest fucking thing I have ever heard.   It's so unfunny it will make you physically uncomfortable by the end.

Crimson Shroud is really good but also pretty short. 'Tis also pretty cheap and it goes on sale regularly enough (not Atlus Sale regular)

There is also Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. I remember you saying you enjoyed the PS2 games on IRC before. The game is fun and the hit boxes have improved a lot. No wifi online though, just streetpass. MH4U is coming out next year though so you may want to wait. It also has multiplayer that uses wifi.

Not sure how you feel about dungeon crawlers but both Etrian Odyssey IV and Untold are great.
You must be nuts sir, I have a serious HATE for monster hunter on any console really simply because of the controls. It drove me nuts trying to play the first one. But I'll take a peek at crimson shroud.

makes thread about game recommendations;
insists on rule forbidding bad mouthing other people's suggestions;
immediately begins bad mouthing other people's suggestions.

this is CHAOS!! we've descended into CHAOS!!!!

....it's LITERALLY the same game with a shiny coating of ye olde english. No changes, no (story based anyway) new content, and a tacked on multiplayer that, while highly entertaining when you could find a second person with the game, was literally nothing more than fluff on what was an amazing game.

100% completely and totally the same game. Remakes usually change events and characters around. Adding 4 segments of Delita's side story that basically showed you what he would do in the next scene he was in doesn't count for beans. This was a retranslated version of a great game, not a remake.

Right so, in your opinion no one should make any distinction between say...FFX for PS2 and the new HD remaster or something more obscure like...Kenneth Branagh's and Laurence Olivier's versions of Othello because they are 95% the same?  WofTL clears up a lot of the muddled plot from the original.  I spent a lot of the PSX version being about 85% sure of what was going on, and in a narrative epic like FFT it's really really important that you know exactly what's happening.  This made the redo not only great but entirely necessary.  I dunno,  maybe you were too busy nitpicking minor flaws to notice everything the PSP version improved upon?

W(ar) of t(he) L(ions)...shouldn't have capitalized the T i guess
Yeah....most of us just call it final fantasy tactics...

Edit: Yeah, I read the reply while at work and missed most of it before I posted. I should have put 2+2 together, my bad.

*Yanks up pants high above waste, puts in pocket protector*

Final Fantasy Tactics usually refers to the PSX title, while War of the Lions refers to the remake (which is different enough from the original that a distinction needs to be made).

*end nerd rant*
Eh....no....FFTactics is the same game, there is no gameplay change aside from huge ass slowdown and 2 new classes and ad hoc multiplayer on psp as well as a lame translation...psx version was far better for hilarity purposes.

Regardless, played both, know pretty much everything about either, trisection is the greatest music in either game and most of the rest of the FF series.

I don't even want to BEGIN to get into how wrong you are.  You can't just gloss over what is basically a complete retelling of a plot by calling it a "lame translation".  The original is still great but playing it feels disjointed and random when compared with the redo.   You seem to put too much stock into gameplay and completely dismiss events and storyline and that's especially a bummer for a game as beautifully written and executed as War of The Lions (yes I'm still going to capitalize the T)

Am I wrong to assume that in your opinion every serious remake of a film is just the same movie as the original and doesn't deserve distinction? because it would seem like that is what you are implying.

Yeah, Sword Craft story's my go-to game when I want some lighthearted story with some decent combat and crafting.

I was gonna list some games that I recall not liking before, but want to give a second chance to. However, I think I'll just buckle down and give FFT Scuffle of the kittens a second chance. I mean, I like the Advance games now, so why not?

Edit: or...maybe I should play Shining Force instead...now I'm confused! @_@



IMHO WofTL is probably the best strategy game ever created, you'll kick yourself if you skip it.
