1  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The unofficial "recommend me a game" thread. on: Today at 12:30:36 PM
I got a New 3ds XL for my birthday and I am trying to find some good games for it. I have previously had a 3ds and played the Fire Emblem games and FFTA games.  I am trying to find something good that is either strategy or a good story based turn based RPG. Anyone have any recommendations?

So, uh...

Apparently my stepdad's father went crazy and tried to kill his wife before killing himself. This was my afternoon today.


Though let this be a lesson. Plenty of people could have seen this coming but chose not to. I've met the man multiple times and it was super apparent he was losing his marbles. I don't care how close you are to your elders, dementia is not something to be taken lightly. If you see the signs, get them help.

My cousin did this a few years ago...except he did kill his wife and then himself, leaving their daughter without parents. It is a weird and rough experience. Especially if you are close to them. I felt a lot of anger towards him for doing that, more than I felt grief for it happening.

That's harsh.
Is it a chain? As in, any hope of some few being relocated to another store?

Well, it's Gamestop so while that option is available, most of us aren't going to go that route for various reasons. The most important is that Gamestop does barely any hiring outside of October, so anywhere we go we'd be an extra cog and have to earn our hours all over again. For me it's more difficult. I don't drive, and this store is the only one in walking distance. There's public transportation, but outside of the city proper it's pretty unreliable and even then it's not worth it for a part-time job.

The whole situation is just asshole bussinessman being asshole businessmen. Our landord is being an asshole and not renewing our lease because the store next to us, Olympia Sports, is being an asshole and paying more for our storefront so they can expand their store. Then corporate is being an asshole by not wanting to spend the money to furnish a new location.

It's okay, though, because they just pissed a lot of people off. Our main clientele is from Marblehead, a small town of extremely rich folks from old money. The two closest Gamestops to ours are either next to a Walmart or in Lynn, a town most people consider to be a bit of a ghetto.

Crazy. I was the manager in Sudbury, MA years ago and before that I was the manager at Solomon Pond Mall. Oh the memories.

So today involved everyone at work finding out our store is closing... in 9 days.

I don't really have anything more to add to that at the moment because I still haven't fully processed this information.

Wow, damn. That sucks.
5  The Rest / The Bazaar / Suikoden V on: March 06, 2015, 11:41:44 AM
I bet you came here thinking I was selling this game, didn't you? Well imaginary person, you would be wrong. I am actually looking to buy this game. I realized during my current playthrough of Suikoden II that I have actually not play V, which most people compare to the awesomeness that is II. So now, I am looking to buy or borrow a US version of the game. I have looked on EBay and Amazon and they are ridiculously expensive, which I can understand, but I am hoping someone here owns an extra copy and is willing to let it go for a bit cheaper than the 100+ most are going for. Thanks!

Damn Logick, that sucks. I know at one point the SF office of WB games was looking. Good luck finding a place.

Getting antsy for my Vegas trip. We are driving. It should be a good time.

Fucking 12 year olds man. I need to remember to call my mom and apologize for just being.

I moved in with my girlfriend and her son. I am not sure how to deal with a 12 year old when he is moody. I am trying to be hands off with the "parenting"  stuff and just build rapport for now. It is an interesting experience.

I moved in with my girlfriend this past weekend. She has a 12 year old son, so it's cool because he and I get along and play games and stuff. I started playing Magic The Gathering again so I could teach him. I forgot how addictive this game can be.

Fuck...you.. :-(

That play was heartbreaking. The gif is awesome.

Not to be confused with a Seahawks fan, but this guy is pretty funny off and on the field, heh.

I am a Seahawks fan and I love this.

Kevadu: He is a running back for the Seattle Seahawks. He hates talking to media.

I wish the Superbowl was this weekend instead of next. I am getting antsy!

I am definitely with some of you guys where you get emotional at the big heroic moments more so than the sad ones. That is how I usually am.

Except when someone is upset about an animal death. That gets me in movies. The movie that even thinking about makes me cry is the original Where the Red Fern Grows. I remember watching it in school and I started bawling like a baby.

Edit. Also any scene of a military funeral or funeral that plays TAPS

Initially I liked Clara simply because she's gorgeous. Plus, she WAS interesting for a while. Now I'm entirely sick of her. I was bummed at the end of the Christmas episode why they implied she'll be back for season 9. I was hoping for a fresh companion.

I am with you. My only hope is that with Danny Pink gone (probably/mostly) and now that she is used to the new darker more crabby Doctor she will be able to grow a bit and maybe not be this annoying "clever" girl she has kind of grown into as it has progressed. She started out great, witty and clever enough to keep up, then she became almost a foil to the doctor, and so hopefully now she can go back to being interesting, and not just hot.

I'm sure Agent didn't mean any harm. I think he was just saying sometimes exposure too the cause of the allergy  can reduce it to unnoticeable levels. I'm allergic to dogs, but I'm not allergic to my mothers dogs as I spent years with them. Cats are something I never seem to get used to though, they cause the worse reaction in my, can't breath, can't see cause my eyes swell up and are wateryitchy. Very horrible and no exposure seems to help, I think it just depends on the type of allergy.

I know. My anger is directed at the idea, not him specifically. When I was in school I broke my wrist playing football. I continued to play because I didn't want to be seen as not tough and I wanted to tough it out, it made it worse.
