2446  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Meatballs! on: March 20, 2009, 02:54:02 PM
I hate meatballs. Yeah, I said it.

I love meatballs. I make great ones for spaghetti. I also love them covered in BBQ sauce. Swedish meatballs are quite tasty as well.

I especially enjoy eating balls of meat on Fridays during Lent while surrounded by very Catholic Mexicans. But that could just be me....
2447  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Battlestar Galactica - comments after viewing season 1 on: March 20, 2009, 02:45:19 PM
I'm afraid to do any internet searching for BG discussions for fear of spoilers. I've also had to avoid the other topic here,for obvious reasons. I finished watching season 1, and have watched the first 2 episodes of season 2.
I freaking(or would that be frakkin'? god, I suck) love this show.
Am I the only one that DOES NOT find #6 hot? She's played as this uber sex symbol, and it doesn't work for me. Hell, I find the little engineer girl more attractive.
I love the grittiness. Totally unexpected. People die! Bad things happen. Serious business.
Odd aside - Anyone else think about how Jamie Bamber has to suppress his accent to play his character? Why would they cast the role with someone with a natural accent if they didn't want it?(Same with House, I suppose)
The episode I just watched (2.2?) If they knew a cylon ship had crashed into the Galactica, why didn't anybody check it out? It was driving me nuts.

What IS the deal with Baltar and #6 anyway? Don't spoil anything, but... up to this point...as far as I can tell...she is all in his head. But how did a cylon get there? How would he know how to imagine it/her? What it/she would say? It confuses me.

Once again... NO FRIGGIN SPOILERS or I will kill you through the interwebnet. I am fully aware that most of you are about to watch the final episode tonight. I am jealous, but enjoying what I am watching, so oh well.

AH! Check that out. IT WORKS! man, you are the total shiznit...or whatever. Thanks a ton. Now I'm off to see how much music i can get off my game cds.
2449  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: Can I rip the music off my TG cd games? on: March 18, 2009, 01:37:47 PM
Hay, thanks for the help. I'll try it tonight.
2450  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: Can I rip the music off my TG cd games? on: March 16, 2009, 12:51:19 PM
So how does one make a copy of a cd that isn't even being recognized when placed into the computer?
It shows one 55 byte file that doesn't do anything when I click on it. That's it.
I realize that I probably won't be able to do much. I just thought somebody might have an idea or two.

2451  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Can I rip the music off my TG cd games? on: March 16, 2009, 12:23:17 AM
I would REALLY like to get the music off my Y's I & II and Dungeon Explorer II games, if possible.
I would buy the soundtracks, but can't find them through searching(if they exist at all).
So what is my alternative? Using the game discs themselves forever? I don't like doing that, and I'm afraid they are going to stop working one of these days.
I read that I could use my PC to open the files and save into a new format, but when I put them into the drive nothing happens. 

2452  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Super Game Journal Turbo II - The New Challengers on: March 07, 2009, 12:58:34 PM
beat Mass Effect last night. I freakin' loved that game. The ending was kinda lame, though. Obviously set up for a sequel. I actually want to start up another game, but play as the female Shepard and be a real hard ass with my decisions(I was too nice before). I'm considering getting the DLC, but wonder if it's worth it. Anyone?

I guess I'll get back to Xeno III now. I want to finish this so I can be done with my PS2.
2453  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Star Ocean: The Last Hope news.(56k Warning) on: March 07, 2009, 12:45:34 PM
Johns game times don't count. He has some superhuman time decelerator or something. His game times constantly floor me. I'm normally double or triple what he runs. I honestly don't get it, especially with rpgs. Minus sidequests, shouldn't we all be clocking pretty close to each other?
Oh, uh, I haven't even bought the game yet, but I just had to comment.
2454  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Best RPG of Last Generation? on: March 04, 2009, 08:37:42 AM
Best rpgs of last gen? That IS tough.
My Favs:
Dark Cloud 2
Skies of Arcadia (never played Legends, but I feel like I should)
Tales of the Abyss/Symphonia
Final Fantasy X/XII

VERY difficult to pick the best, but I would probably go with Skies. Put Grandias battle system in there and you'd pretty much have the perfect game.

I'm still playing Xeno III, so it doesn't qualify
DQ VIII was good but needed a better ST
Suiko III needed a better battle system, and V bored me silly
Grandia II is completely overrated. Battles = great. Everything else - eh
never touched a DDS or a Shin whatever game. no interest.
Shadow Hearts sucked due to the wheel of fortune(admittedly, I suck at timed button presses, but I really don't think luck is a good base for a battle system)

2455  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Super Game Journal Turbo II - The New Challengers on: March 02, 2009, 01:51:12 PM
Mass Effect - Played through Virmire
What the hell? Wrex goes bonkers and gets killed. Then I had to choose between Ashley and Kaiden? It happened so fast that I didn't realize I was picking who lives and who dies. I picked Ashley because I figured I was already there anyway. Then Shepard tells Kaiden to "die proud" or something and it registered. Now I'm pissed, and even a little sad.
I'm going to do a few more side quests then head off to Ilos
What a great game this has been. A western rpg with non-linear gameplay that makes sense and doesn't confuse me. Plus characters that I actually care about.
Obviously, the games not perfect. The environments all look too similar. The game needs more music. The overall story is just not that compelling.
Despite the flaws, I actually can see myself playing this again. I NEVER do that.
I hope I haven't ruined myself for jrpgs now, but I'm not sure I can go back after this. I do know that I'll be way more selective.
My son and I continue to play Castle Crashers. It's gotten a  bit tougher. I think I need to spend time replaying earlier levels to build up my guy. OMG its an rpg!
I wish this game had a difficulty setting so I could put it on "pansy"

2456  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Super Game Journal Turbo II - The New Challengers on: February 21, 2009, 12:03:05 AM
No, actually, it doesn't. I recall playing PS2 when it first came out. The game came with a full strategy guide and was STILL a total bitch and a half. Tough game that I have fond memories of. Amazing how nostalgia makes everything better.
Your best bet is just to skip all the way ahead to PS4. It's all the best of Phantasy star rolled into one(Minus the godawful last dungeon. but that's just my opinion(fact).
Still side-questing in Mass Effect. I really should go back to the main quest, but I am addicted to exploring random planets for long lost minerals. I really don't know why.
2457  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recommend a Horror Film! on: February 20, 2009, 11:46:43 PM
oooo, your in my territory now. The wife and I LOVE horror movies and have watched tons of them. Lots of bad ones. Lots of cheesy ones. Very few really good ones, sadly.  I'll mention a few I'd recommend.

Session 9 - I liked the slow burn of this one. good stuff
The Car - cheesy, yet oddly creepy as well
Teeth - cheesy but fun. Where do you think the teeth are?
Slither - fun and cheesy. reminded me of PJ s earlier movies like Dead Alive and Bad Taste. Which in turn reminds me mention The Frighteners. Totally overlooked when it came out.
The Host - Korean movie. a weird mix of a monster movie with a message.
Black Sheep - another goofy one. Killer freakin' sheep my man.

I may have to come back to this thread if I think of any more.
Have fun!
2458  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Neo-Retro Games. on: February 16, 2009, 02:03:32 PM
What would you guys like to see in a "neo-retro" style?  A neo-retro game being a game made in contemporary times, but made to look like / play like an old game.  Recent examples would be Mega Man 9 and Retro Game Challenge.

I'd like to see a new Phantasy Star game like this.  Just take Phantasy Star IV and spice that baby up!  Maybe clean up the graphics a bit, retain the gameplay elements, and definitely gloss up the cutscene panels.  One of my favorite things from PSIV were the comic book like cutscene panels.  Don't do FMV, don't have voice overs, just go with those comic like art boxes that just shoot up on the screen during important moments.  I don't even know if I've seen something so unique since.

I'd also like to see a new console Castlevania on the 360 or PS3 with widescreen support.  The DS games are great, but man, you could make an awesome looking 2D game with super HD graphics, wide screen support, huuuuuuuuuuge environments, massive bosses...  Man, Order of Ecclesia on a 40 inch HD telly?  I will kill stray cats for that.  And I love cats.

I'd also like another New Super Mario Bros.  (One that's a little harder.)

Exactly this minus the Mario Bros

Add in A Secret Of Mana with the art style of Legend of Mana, and I'd be happy.
Moral of the story:
2D in HD, please!

Went ahead and bought Castle Crashers. Fun game. My son(8 year old) and I were playing it together the other night and he was having a blast. Good times.

Mass Effect - I find myself going to random planets and driving around looking for stuff. I'm starting to wonder why everything looks the same, no matter which planet I go to. Still enjoying the game, regardless. I'll keep doing random stuff for a bit until going back to the main quest.

2460  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: I present to you, The Arctic Unicorn on: February 10, 2009, 03:58:27 PM
I'll bet the Narwhal with the biggest horn gets ALL the chicks. You know its true.
I wonder how often they accidentally stab each other with those things.
