EDIT: And yes, Camilla Belle really is a woman.  Meshie's just creating confusion, although his simple method of doing so here falls in stark contrast to his usual garbled theses.  

This is why I was confused. He's usually very...wordy.

Hmmm...no order:

Skies of Arcadia
Dark Cloud 2
FF XII
Mass Effect
Tales of the Abyss
Tales of Symphonia
FFX
DQVIII
Twilight Princess
Okami

I'm sure I'm missing something

So this Camilla Belle really is a female. I was feeling odd for a minute there, as I find HER kind of attractive. Is there a joke here that I'm missing?
Hell, I never got the hatred for Rinoa myself. Looks-wise, she's totally my type. If I we're to not be married, and into dating video game characters, that is.

...

Never beat FFVIII. Too much reliance on GFs screwed me by the end of disc 3.

I think I've done pretty much all there is to do here, so it's time to leave this town for greater pastures.

Dude - bit of a spoiler here, but if you want cage-man to join your party, don't leave town.  You can never go back.
minor character spoilers:
Code:
I decided to brave Danes Nest or whatever it was called. Scored me a rogue priestess chick, which in turn scored me the big Quinari(sp?) dude. Awesome!
Now the tough decision of who to keep in my party.

Been Playing Dragon Age since Christmas.  I decided to go with an Elf Mage, as most games stick you with the typical sword-wielder. Rogue was my second choice. Hopefully, I'll get one in my party.
I'm in Lothering after about 8 hours. I wanna get that big dude in the cage, but can't convince that revered mother chick to let me take him. I'm not an asshole, so I will not force her.
Morrigan is awesome with all her sarcastic comments and insults thrown an Alistair. I've got me a dog, too.
I think I've done pretty much all there is to do here, so it's time to leave this town for greater pastures.
The frame rate is a little wonky, but I think the graphics are just fine, if a little...brown.
The story seems pretty textbook so far, but the writing and characters are making it enjoyable.
I keep eyeballing Jan.26th on the calendar, and know I will not have this done before then. Then again, I'm not sure I could play 2 BioWare games in a row anyway. Might have to go back to Valkyria in between.

Copied from my Facebook review:

Wow. Holy shit, wow. I managed to love this movie, despite all the hype. That's saying something. Visually above and beyond anything I've ever seen at the movies. The 3D was not in your face obvious like other crappy 3D movies. I would say it allowed for more immersion, bringing you into Pandora. The story has been told numerous times before, with the same cliche villains, but the way it's told here, in this setting, makes it feel different. The best character in the whole movie was Neytiri(sp?). Zoe did a great job with the voice, and the animation was amazing.
Sam Worthington seems to have a hard time suppressing his Aussie accent. He's really not all that great, so I'm not sure why they couldn't have picked someone without an accent. He must have a hell of an agent, considering all that he's showing up in.
Regardless, the movie is well worth a trip(or trips) to the theater for the visuals alone.
I'll admit to being the choir that this movie is preaching to with it's message. Take care of the earth, and she takes care of you. A few scenes genuinely got to me. You really fall in line with the navi, and want them to kick some sky people ass.
Great movie!

Saw Burton's "Sweeney Todd: Demon Barber of Fleet Street" on Christmas day. I love the songs in this musical. "Epiphany" is one of my favourites!


One of my all-time favorite movies :)
Awesome movie. Bought it for the wife for Christmas.

The HP movies DO improve with each outing. Except for HBP. I agree with Esper on that one. It's not that they left things out. It's WHAT they left out that was the problem.  I'll have to see it again to get a final judgment, but right now I would rank it behind prisoner and Phoenix. Maybe even Goblet.

Finally going to see Avatar tomorrow. I'm surprised at the lack of a thread or conversation on this.

Oh man, you guys won't believe this!
So the mystery has been solved in regards to the two DS games missing. I caught my son trying to throw them out!
Apparently he took the DS to Kindercare/school without telling us, which is strictly forbidden. In so doing he proceeded to LOSE said DS. Either it fell out, or some punk stole out of his book bag. Either way, it's gone. He swiped the games(which we're from Santa, so we wouldn't know about them... Right?) from under the tree in order to keep from having to own up on the missing DS. Crazy shit.
Wow. I didn't think my "good" kid had it in him.
Well, he's in big trouble now, and will be buying a new DS for his mom and dad(in time), is banned from the Wii for a month, and has to do whatever the hell I tell him to do, WHEN I tell him to do it. Plus, Kirby goes back. Scribble we keep.
*sighs*

Lets see...

Dragon Age for PS3(installing as I type this)
a comfy Moon chair for my gaming and movie watching
Pajamas with frickin' footies on them because my feet get so damn cold. Good wife
One of them winter hats with the super warm lining and covers for the ears.
Gamestop, Lands End, Itunes, Marcus Cinema, Borders gift cards
warm denim jacket
Belgian waffle maker
Pressure cooker
Misc. KnickKnacks and goodies

Funny thing: "Santa" brought my son Kirby Super Star Ultra, and the family Scribblenauts. Problem is, when we we're opening presents this morning, these two things were gone. Mysteriously disappeared. I know my son was up before we were, but he is adamant that he had nothing to do with it. I'm convinced he did because there is no other possibility. I don't think someone would break in, only take 2 DS games, cover their tracks perfectly, then leave. I even have pictures I took last night showing one of the games in the pile. I'm pissed because I spent $55 on these games, and now they are gone.  WTF?!

Anyway...
Merry Christmas, everybody!

Not to stoke the fire back up again, but I actually am in agreement with Gen. I don't get to say that too often, so I had to take the opportunity.
I've had a lot of cats in my life. Most of them have been de-clawed. They were also indoor cats that pretty much never went outside except to go to the vet. Seemed like perfectly happy cats to me.
The one or two outdoor cats we had were left intact, for obvious reasons.
I think it is reasonable to want a cat, and also want presentable furniture. This has nothing to do with loving your furniture more than your cat. I certainly don't.
I also think a lot(if not most) of people are simply unaware of what really happens when a cat is de-clawed. I know I am. I never took the time to look it up. It's just what you did when you got a cat.
Kinda like having a baby boy and getting him cut. It's just what you DID. I never considered otherwise.
I imagine if more people educated themselves on things instead of just mindlessly agreeing to such procedures, they wouldn't happen as often.
My current cat, Merlin, is 10 years old. He's pretty awesome, but has had some health problems, and may not be around much longer. We will certainly get a new cat(or cats, as I would like more than one) after he dies. I will seriously consider NOT de-clawing them now that I am better educated on the process. My wife will probably not go for that. We'll see.

I'd really rather not hear about any females having such mishaps. In my delusional world, women are not capable of such things.
Cinnamon and spice, and everything nice, ya know?
; - )


NEWSFLASH: Women pee and poop and fart.

I RUINED YOUR FANTASY. I'm such a ho. :|

We also give birth, menstruate and wax our body hair. Nightmaaaare.


Not cool, ladies. Not cool AT ALL.

aka: *plugs fingers in ears* I'm not listening! La La la!

Its about time we had another bodily function failure thread on this forum (perhaps we were a bit overdue).

However I'm all for gender equality and the next time someone feels the urge to make another one of these threads so I have to ask if it would be too much to ask for if one of you can find a story of a female making God cry next time?

Seriously, haven't we had enough stories of guys trying to weed themselves out of the gene-pool through self-mutilation? Because, I'm pretty sure this site has covered the gamut of every willful emasculation save for getting your junk caught in the kitchen sink's disposal mechanism.

Yeah, it's saddening. She was a gorgeous and charming actress in the films that I saw her in. She'll be in "The Expendables" next year so hopefully it will be good.
Not to disrespect the dead, but "gorgeous and charming"? I think not. I always thought she looked like a coke addict.
I can't even think of anyone I would describe as gorgeous.
Kate Beckinsale? Monica Belluci? Jennifer Connelly(before she starved herself)
I don't know

Valkyria Chronicles - God, I love this game so far. I am now in Chapter 6. I was so pissed when I played the chapter 5 battle and ended up losing. It was own my dumb ass fault, and I found myself daydreaming about how I would play the battle the next time. Changed tactics and completely kicked ass the second time.
I love that you have to really strategize with this game. You can't just march your troops in and destroy everything. The game will hand you your ass.
Good stuff.
I'm pretty sure the wife got me Dragon Age for Christmas, so it's going to be a battle over what to play.

This is sounding pretty damn awesome to me. I have no problems at all with linearity, the omission of towns, or anything else mentioned. I'm all for a cinematic ride of an rpg. If I'm in the mood for non-linearity and towns, I'll play something else. I always approach each FF(and every game I play) as it's own entity. No use comparing it to the others. People will always look for things to complain about. Too bad for them.
