I'm terrible about wearing my seatbelt.
I got out of the habit because Korean taxi drivers always used to get slightly insulted when you put it on and they'd always tell us how great their driving is and how we don't need them.

That's Thailand and the Philippines.

I'm going to teach English. I'll be back in a bit, hopefully.

i get what you're saying, and there is a bit of that with Tidus at the beginning, but Waka fits the stereotype that instantly springs to my mind when i hear the word.

I thought there was already a press release saying an NA release date this year was erroneous?

Are the North American dates in summer or fall?
I'm going to be back in late August, so I'm hoping I can catch a Montreal show.

I thought there had already been some released.

Five year development cycles are my least favorite thing about modern gaming :(


Except for Atlus!

And there's no way it will be out this year.
I am hopeful we'll get an English demo before Xmas of this year but doubtful at the same time.

TANGENT: Re: emo.  I understand the emo label as it fits in modern day colloquia, but I don't quite understand it.  I mean, all music is emotional wither it expresses joy, sadness, anger, disillusionment, disgust, whatever.  

Either way, A lot of hate for Tidus in this thread.  That's fine and dandy since I can see how he wouldn't be the most likeable protagonist to everyone (he is a jock after all), but I liked him.  I liked his youthful exuberance.  It was with him and only with him that Yuna could let go and for a few fleeting moments just be a regular, fun-loving teenage girl and not this holy emissary with a herculean burden on her shoulders.  I loved the laughing scene.  I thought it was well acted.  


Actually, I agree with all of that. Funny you call Tidus a jock, because I would've labelled Waka the jock of the group. But none of them had that kind of jock arrogance that would put anything down that they didn't understand. (Well maybe except Waka and Riku)

Overall I preferred Tidus wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy more than Squall. Squall just reminds me of too many people I went to high school with who were way too self conscious about how terrible life was and how bad everything was for them and made sure everyone knew it.

Funnily enough, I had a friend kind of like Tidus as well, a bit of a jock but all around nice guy - without the annoying laugh. I've never actually pinpointed it til now, but that may be why I reacted the way I did to both characters.

I still don't get Fugazi being emo but it's not important.
4978  The Rest / General Discussions / EA pushes ad-backed video games on: February 02, 2008, 02:23:41 PM
See, everyone's saying "as long as it's tasteful, I don't mind".

That's the thing though.

How tasteful is advertising in magazines? On TV?
Once advertisers get a real foot in the door in gaming, games will be stopping every five minutes "for a word from our sponsor".

And who wants to buy their swords and magic equipment from Wal-Mart or The Gap?

Fuck that noise.

FFVIII sort of predated a lot of emo bands.

He didn't predate Emo. Emo began in the late 80's, fronted by DC bands Rites of Spring and Embrace. Most of the members of each band would later form Fugazi, which goes to show you how much eyeliner they must have worn.

(For those not familiar with Fugazi, that would mean none. The whole "emo aesthetic" came way after the creation of the Emo music genre).
Fugazi is emo?

I thought there had already been one but couldn't remember. I was waiting for more info on it. It's just nice to see that Atlus can survive and hasn't had to merge with another company to survive.
