double bump for an hour long conversation on what does and doesn't in fact constitute a sandwich.

^ don't buy koudelka.  Save your money.

Gameplay wise it is nothing like any of the SH games proper.

That and it's just a bad game.

Though they are both fantastic games (SH2 is especially great),
Covenant and From the New World tend to be on the expensive end because they haven't been re-released.

be prepared to drop upwards of $100 to get both of them.

I spent something like 8 hours last night putting mods on (and then debugging) Morrowind.  I don't even really like the Elder Scrolls but I got the crazy eyes to see what all I could improve about it and then all of the sudden it was 5 am.

1. Fable II (17 hours)
2. The Legend of Heroes - Trails in the Sky (75 hours)
3. The Legend of Zelda - Breath of the Wild (127 hours)
4. Shoot1Up (45 minutes)
5. FF IX  (45 hours)
6. Ys Origin (17 hours) - This series never misses.  At least not since the PSP era.
7. Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles - I'd thought this game was a bit easy... until I got to Dracula... particularly his 3rd form. Richter is awesome and I'm glad I finally finished the lead in to the greatest game in the series.
8. Suikoden (30 hours) - Can't believe I never gave this series a chance... straight on to Suikoden II...
9. Borderlands (way too long) - Stupid game with a stupid end that I stupidly stayed up all night once last week to finish.  Good Riddance.

How much time does it take to teach a normal student "don't spend more than you earn", and "don't borrow what you can't pay off?"  A couple days?  A week?  I don't understand how you can make up a whole course out of that.  Once you've covered the future value of money, aren't you basically done?

there are often systemic and cultural issues at play here that would necessitate a much longer training period for a lot people.  Someone who has never had any money (that wasn't already owed to someone else or needed for basic survival) is usually going to need a lot of help understanding finance.

^um because not every child is a lucky as you were and don't have parents that give a toss about them or their learning habits.

And the vast majority of American college graduates go to public school (and still have insane student loan debt) so I'm not sure where you pulled that junk statistic from.

I often wonder what it's like having a world view that's not even a little bit based on reality ...

^ the "payoff" is learning how to deal with being forced to complete tasks you have little to no interest in.  Otherwise known as like 70% of "work".

^ my wife's mom is in an assisted living facility.  So I can at least commiserate a little on watching someone slowly fall apart.  You have all of my empathy Annubis.

^ Rogue Galaxy was great! And DQ VIII. In fact all 4 of L5's PS2 games were top notch. But has any other developer fallen much farther since?

^ It really depends on the labor laws in Virginia.  In Indiana, employers can get rid of you for any reason that isn't explicitly protected by law (i.e. racial discrimination) and just say that it "wasn't working out".  Hopefully the have something a little less draconian on the books.

I've pretty much made it a point to avoid pre-Awakening Fire Emblems, since they're essentially masturbatory aids for masochists.

We get it. You don't enjoy challenging games.

Obama passes stimulus act in 2010 that adds $831 billion to the national debt (and is an unequivocal success) = Stalinist nightmare.

Trump tries to railroad through 2017 tax reform that will add $1.5 trillion to the debt (and will INCREASE taxes on the lowest brackets and save his billionaire buddies a bundle) = genius man of the people.

go home GOP logic, you're drunk.
