I finished some sidequests for EO4 on the way home from Seoul today.

I know, I know.

It is brutal, but the game itself is so good.

I'm in the middle of re-reading the Hobbit after watching the two movies back to back again.

I didn't think they had followed the book as closely as they did with all the stuff they added.

In terms of anime hair, Nash's is pretty tame. It's stylised but not beyond ridiculousness.

I looooooooved Suikoden 3's Trinity Sight system, and it would be really cool if another game did something similar.

Did some poking around - yikes, Suikoden 5 *is* getting expensive. I wonder why? It didn't seem like it had that low a print run. I used to see it for $30 all the time.

Best advice is to grab it before it becomes ridiculous like Suikoden 2.

Finding an apartment from another continent is a pain in the butt.

I got to Zanarkand in FFX.

I can't wait to get the airship.

Parti Quebecois are the separatists.

The Liberals won, which isn't that surprising.

I enjoy looking at attractive women's butts. Therefore, I approve of yoga pants.

The Uggs? Not so much.

The only RPG I can remember being embarrassed while playing was Eternal Sonata.

But I didn't actually like it.

Okami HD got a NA release.  Besides, there's a lot of talking in that game, this is supposed to be the "import friendly" thread.

Yes, but my point was that the Asian edition is in English, as opposed to the Japanese edition, for those that wanted to import a retail copy.

Edit - Never mind.

I hate to break it to you kael, but Group work is the new great thing in teacher ed these days.

In B.C. It's pretty depressing unless you teach French/Music. Those are the teacher candidates that get hired right out the gate. For the rest of us, it's a mix of luck (aka who you know) and trying to fight your way to the top of the pile.

A ton of other people I went to school with ended up moving overseas to teach English. If you can land a gig a Canadian accredited school then that's a sweet gig because you are paid like a Canadian teacher and you have lower costs of living. In most cases they pay for your rent and such.

Yep, looks like it will be an international school for me then. Hopefully in a place with no snow where I can go scuba diving!

Initial D - Extreme Stage is a pretty fun racing game that is easy to play and figure out, even without a lot of Japanese knowledge. There's a bit of a story, but it's not really that important - you just need to get out and race.
Modifying your car is extremely easy as well.

The Biohazard Chronicles HD Collection and Darkstalkers Resurrection HD collections are pretty easy to play as well.

There's also Asian versions of games that didn't get an HD release in NA if you're interested in those.

E.g. Siren New Translation, Okami HD,  Wipeout Fury HD

You're telling me.  I was actually really considering going for it but got really disheartened by that announcement (and about 5 friends of mine are 'certified' to teach but took forever to find a non-supply teaching job).

I'm really happy you got in though.  You've got tons of experience by this point I bet. :)

Thank you! :D

I had no idea if I'd get in or not because my grades are good, but not spectacular. I'm guessing it was the experience that got me in.

As for jobs.....well Ontario apparently has some sort of a program going with BC. My friend at Ottawa U is doing Teacher's College this year and she was telling me about it. I don't know enough about it at this point, but I will be bugging her about it in a year's time.

Additionally, there's always international schools abroad. I like living in other countries and international schools have good schedules, don't treat you like crap (from what I've heard) and pay very, very well.

Congrats! I did my program in BC a few years back. Unfortunately, due to an over saturation of teachers and poor timing, I never did get to work as a teacher. Hope you enjoy it, because that year goes by FAST.

What are you specializing in?

Thanks! :D

I'll specialise in English and hopefully History. So what are you doing now if you're not teaching?

Also, sorry about your grandma, Star :(

It was a shock when I lost mine and it took a long time to get over.
