You know, I haven't played this game and I've been reading several positive things about this game in the thread, but you've not stated a single bad thing about the game, Lard, you keep making incredibly broad statements that I could say about any game.

Mind being a bit more specific?
1517  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: March 18, 2009, 11:35:47 AM
Yep, I saw that when it was announced on the POL website- I generally check the POL page really often, for info on the next update and whatnot.

So far, the next update sounds okay. Nothing yet that made me really excited yet. They did say that A Crystalline Prophecy is coming out, but I have my reserves about these three new expansions they want to release when they're supposed to be using all their staff on WOTG.

As far as the Promathia fight with Dennis goes, I didn't take any pictures, aside from this one, which is meh, but it's better than nothing I s'pose.


Atamusk, Levit, and I have been working on finishing CoP for a long time...October 12, 2008 is when we did Monarch Linn, meaning we've been doing this crap together for half a year. Feels a lot longer than that for some reason. Wonder what twisted fate had brought us to roads that run so near?



I joined in on a Beadeaux {S} campaign run shouted by a JP, in a desperate attempt to try to be some of the few people to do Cracking Shells on our server, or any other server for that matter (There's very little info on it). Of course if you've logged in this week any, you'd know we did not succeed. Either way though, it was a lot of fun!


This guy was a lot easier than I'd thought he'd be- I went crazy and bought like, 80k worth of meds and food, but only ended up using maybe 8k of it, hah. That's probably an overestimate too. FLs arn't going to be easy to do- I can't find anybody to do them with, though hopefully I can convince Levit's assault static to let me mooch a couple runs. =P
44/50


Nobody wants this thing, so I got it for 1 point. Go me. :P Haven't even bothered getting the helm yet actually, been lazy and it's not really that amazing of a piece. It does look spiffy though.


Joined a sea LS for now, dunno if that'll last- this was boring me out of my skull, and hearing the drop rates just makes me want to run like hell considering that it's a pretty established LS, so there's probably going to be a decent amount of people before me on what I want.

Salvage agogo.

Doing my regular old runs with lack of drops and crappy junk drops for my low level jobs, as well as seeing some pretty crazy stuff on freelot (Saw Deimos's Cuirass on freelot, now THAT's something somewhere someone is crying about). I joined a random Bhaflau run and did not expect to run into this guy for the first time:

What's even more incredible than that, is that I don't ever have to care about finding him anymore.

So I suspended my journey for Hikazu Hara-Ate to order to get the 25 piece and finish the thing off. Of course skadi drops for like...god knows how many runs (WTF is with LAC and Skadi)- hell, I even see a HIKAZU KABUTO drop before I see this thing:

Hey, the other guy got that Hikazu Kabuto, I think I deserved the other thing. :P

I've only seen Bale in The Prestige and the batman movies, and I'm not really impressed so far- he just plays the same character over and over, and says every line with lack of emotion.

Anyway, I generally don't let performances bother me that much about a movie unless it's really hindering something.
1519  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Watchmen trailer! on: March 10, 2009, 01:27:20 PM
Personally I don't think Snyder understood any of the things that Alan Moore was trying to show with Watchmen, he just directly copied comic panels and let people interpret it the same way they did the comic.

Though I did like the new ending- that's actually one of the things that brought me around, believe it or not.
1520  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Terminator Salvation on: March 10, 2009, 01:23:40 PM
Am I the only one who can't stand Christian Bale? Why is he getting so many high-profile roles? He underreacts/doesn't react to almost everything.

And of course he's bringing that Batman voice over as well.

Nevertheless, it looks alright. I might check it out, though these days I find that Hollywood seems to be better realizing the shallow formula for making people hype up a trailer.
1521  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Star Trek on: March 10, 2009, 02:41:48 AM
Er, I might've gotten it the opposite- that season 3 was the bad one and the first 2 were the ones I've enjoyed. It's been a while since I've watched any of TOS, heh.
1522  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Star Trek on: March 10, 2009, 12:26:34 AM
For me, DS9 seasons 3-6 were the best Trek had to offer. The first two seasons of DS9 were pretty dull, and the seventh and final season was...bad, to say the least. TNG from season 3 onwards was pretty good. For TOS, season 3 was the best of it, first 2 seasons were really dull a lot of the time.

I hated Voyager, though I will admit there a couple good episodes spread throughout, and Enterprise is so unspeakably bad that I don't really want to talk about it at all.
1523  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Watchmen trailer! on: March 07, 2009, 07:01:23 AM
Yeah, a bit too long. I liked it though.
1524  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Star Trek on: March 07, 2009, 12:19:55 AM
Eh I was meaning to say that First Contact sucks, but I think I'm in the minority for that, heh.
1525  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Star Trek on: March 06, 2009, 04:13:17 AM
Star Trek IMHO hasn't not sucked since First Contact DS9.

Fix'd.

My black chocobo passed it's raising time, and it's head off to the stables to spend the rest of its life.


38/50 on assaults now. I haven't gotten any FLs done though, so that'll be pretty tough to finish off.


I joined a ZNM LS. Pretty lightweight one, but I'm not particularly interested in the Hachiryu set, so eh. I'm slightly interested in the Enkidu set, but I'm certainly in no hurry to get that.


Finally done with Nyzul Isle.

Unless I ever play PLD, BST, DNC, SCH, or DRG I guess. 15/20 weapons, har har, and I just broke my second one!


Salvage is being stingy, which means it's "working as intended", to quote the sadistic SE employees who clearly have never played their own damn game.



But really, none of that is important compared to what I had just finished- picture heavy post gogo. I know most of you have seen these scenes, but I just really like them so I'm going to post them anyway. =P

















Following these, of course, is what many people consider the definitive cutscene of the entire game. It's shown in full-screen (No chat log, no status bars, etc), and, surprisingly (Unless you bought the soundtrack =P) a vocal song is played throughout.








The journey began in the opening CG cutscene of them game, with the Orcish siege on Tavnazia, and here is what is easily the biggest adventure in FFXI ends as well.

I'm not really sure if anything will make me feel the way this mission series has for the game anymore. They've more or less revealed the origin of the world to us, so nothing from here on out can be as interesting or engaging as this has been. I guess I'll still do endgame stuff and do the WOTG missions as they come out, but I can't help but feel empty (a har har) at the end of all this.
Certainly, I can still do Storms of Fate and Apocalypse Nigh, but the former just seems far too stressful for me to accomplish with the resources I have available to me.

Hmmm...

In Star Trek X (Nemesis), a human clone of Captain Picard overthrew the Romulan empire and tried to attack Earth (For no real apparent reason, which is why so many people didn't like that film), and of course good guys win, stuff blows up, yadda yadda, we learn more about humanity. I think. Star Trek X sucked.
1528  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Star Trek on: February 27, 2009, 11:24:21 PM
If you haven't seen any Star Trek movies and are not a fan, the only one I would recommend is Star Trek 2, which is one of the best science fiction films I've ever seen, if not simply one of the best films I've seen. It's certainly a personal favorite of mine. The rest of them can be passed up, in my opinion.

And I think I've made it obvious how I feel about the film. I'm gonna give it a chance, but I'm certainly not a fan of the marketing strategy they're putting out right now.
1529  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: So I guess stating your a lesbian on xbox live is a bannable offense. on: February 27, 2009, 04:32:55 AM
My whole thought on it was that it had nothing to do with the fact that she was a lesbian, but rather that she shouldn't have accused Microsoft of taking this action just because she was one.

In most online gaming communities I have experienced, from Starcraft to FFXI to some closed chatrooms, the admin(s)/GM are too busy to look through individual cases (or if they do, they do it very briefly, unless you're lucky and you get one of the nice ones)- as you said, reaction-by-routine, and resort to player reports to determine any disruptive behavior.

Thus, like I said, it's ass-backwards users that are to blame, not Microsoft.
1530  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: So I guess stating your a lesbian on xbox live is a bannable offense. on: February 26, 2009, 06:55:27 PM
It has nothing to do with what the company thinks- they have to take action if enough forms are submitted about any one user, and obviously a ton of them did for this person. They banned/suspended her because her profile "was offensive to other members of XBL", not because she's gay or whatever. If you're going to be pissed, be pissed at the dumb-ass users that harassed her, not Microsoft.

If you ask me, I think she was asking for trouble just for putting "I'm a lesbian" in her profile. Why would you do that for a gaming community? This is the type of thing you should restrict to telling your friends on XBL, at most.
