5191  The Rest / General Discussions / War Insurance tax on my flight?! on: November 08, 2007, 11:48:20 AM
Quote from: "Leyviur"
War Tax is on the charge for my Hong Kong to Taiwan ticket, as well. THe thing is, after the 9/11 thing, the ENTIRE WORLD has been scared shitless and are afraid of being plane-jacked at some point, which is why we have need for all these security checks, taxes, etc.


The thing I'm most surprised about is that I haven't heard about it before now.

Parasite Eve has already been done

http://www.rpgfan.com/boards/viewtopic.php?t=3108&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=60

So I'll do PE II (which is pretty hazy in my memory)

+ Exploding babies
+ Strong soundtrack
+ Usual strong production values from Squeenix

- Same clunkyish combat
- Plot isn't as good as the first
- Cheap looking dialogue boxes make the game look like crap

Next up:

Phantasy Star III

PlayStation 2 RPG Persona 3 is getting its own TV anime spinoff. The show, called Persona -trinity soul-, takes place ten years after the game in a city where the dead have risen with their skins turned inside out. Yummy! The cartoon character designs are being created by the game's character designer, so expect the to hopefully have that same Persona 3 look. Show starts this January in Japan.

There is the stuff Hirameki publishes for US audiences.


I'm not familiar with them. What do they put out?

I thought of putting up spoiler tags - and probably should have.

From the way it sounded on the forums, I was the only one who hadn't played this game yet, so didn't think it was a big deal. And I did try to be vague. Will be aware of this in future posts.

Sorry everyone.

Except Barnacle.

I'm enjoying Xenosaga III...but come on. The time travel angle?
If Shion had met herself in the past, she'd remember it. Or the universe would explode.

Fuck, I've watched too much Doctor Who.

I don't doubt that "war tax" can be found in flight costs of many countries' airlines.  I mean, it's not like hijacking and airplane terrorism is anything new.  Planes have probably been hijacked since they were first invented.


I'd love to see Snakes on a Plane with the Wright Brothers as a silent film.

I must say, I'm liking this trend of graphic adventures and visual novels on the DS.  Count me in for this one.


Me too. It would be great if the "play novel" caught on.

Yes, but that still doesn't explain why I'm paying for it on a Canadian flight on a Canadian airline.
5201  The Rest / General Discussions / War Insurance tax on my flight?! on: November 06, 2007, 12:26:53 PM
It's for flying from S. Korea to Canada. And not via the States either.

5203  The Rest / General Discussions / I know the CNet community can be retarded, but... on: November 06, 2007, 07:52:07 AM
Better than Sephiroth or Link winning again.

Honestly, it's kind of funny.
5204  The Rest / General Discussions / War Insurance tax on my flight?! on: November 06, 2007, 07:49:29 AM
So I got my ticket reserved to fly back to Canada today, and when I got the printout emailed to me with the details, I noticed the following...

"***Tax is included airport tax, fuel surcharge, and war insurance"

WHAT????? So now I'm being charged for the Iraq war? On a CANADIAN flight??

When I asked for details, the response was "Every airline charge to every passenger to pay for war insurance since 9.11 terror. And they said it is for security of air flight. You may can check on internet. "

Anyone else heard of this? Sounds pretty rubbish to me.

Next game: Grandia

+ Fantastic battle system
+ *Great* soundtrack
+ Characters have alot of personality.

- Story can get a bit hokey at times
- Voice acting can grate
- Crossing that wall at the End of the World is really boring.

Honestly, I had a hard time coming up with negatives for this, other than voice acting. This is a real sentimental favourite for me and I still play it about once a year or so.

Next up - Battletech. Or The Bard's Tale. (The original - not the PS2 remake!)
