Those screens are fake.

Also rumor is that E3 2009 will reveal Rapture.

You'd think it'd be too cold for you to be in the mood for rape.

Are you seriously talking about the STORY in a Megaman game? =P

I'd care if winning a Golden Globe meant anything.

Having played the original 4 .Hack games, I'd say stay away from those unless you're a huge fan of .Hack (Which I am). I've always wanted to play the G.U. games, but I've never gotten them, and I dunno if I'd have time to play them- I am really interested in seeing how the story plays out since I watched the /Roots anime though.

Would've gotten to floor 60 if I didn't have that genius PLD/NIN with scorpion harness making Cerberus spam Scorching Lash. Oh well.

CoP was short and simple: A fight that's pretty much always zerged to death in a couple of seconds, much like the Snoll fight from the Three Paths mission. The fight is against a surprise opponent (Well, assuming you didn't get it spoiled like most people did).

Valesti died about 10 seconds into the fight. He's still packs a wallop even though his defenses are lame.
My favorite kill style!


So after some more staring at crystal plot devices, we finally find ourselves knocked unconscious and ready to be violated by the evil Zilart.


We've finally reached sea. Whee!

We spent a bit of time getting to know the area and the types of enemies we could find around there.



No trip to sea is complete without a first failure to spot the Yovras.


Big thanks goes to everyone that helped us get this far!

I can't remember the last time I actually had a new EGM. Maybe every now and then someone would end up impulse buying one just so we'd have come can-reading material, but that's about it.

You're lucky with that one- the Horn is the most sought-after piece for AF2SMN if I'm not mistaken.

Wondering how much people usually get in campaign- I do it every now and then so I can keep my THF's buffer up.



Halfway there! I'm trying to decide whether I should continue farming Nyzul after I hit floor 100, or just move onto normal assaults and do salvage. I'm very much leaning towards salvage right now.

Get myself my next rank- I'm now a corporal!


It's also fun to screw with Naja every chance the game gives you.

6-4 was probably the hardest mission I've ever done in this game, save Alexander. We barely made the time, but we were 1/1! Go team.

You can laugh at my horrible drawdistance.




I pretty much forgot to take any good pictures during the actual fight. The fight was tough and I was focusing on that rather than taking pictures- my laptop is pretty crappy, so it does skip a second or two whenever I have to take a screenshot.

Prishe raises her uh...precious gem, while I apparently doze off because meeting Bahamut is too damn boring for me.

Here's the plot twist: There's a crystal in a Final Fantasy game.


Do they really think anybody would choose the other option?



Bunch of blabbering around about nothing- I don't need the last plot point to be hammered into my head for 3 different cutscenes. :P

Tonberry was pretty easy, as long as you kited out his 2HR.


On the NM Bugard, I was stuck with someone in front of me (What are the oods?), when I asked him if we could team up, he just ignored me. I can understand not wanting to get into xp parties with NA players, but why would you not party with someone for like 10 minutes just to make the damn fight go faster? :P
He ended up dying and I let him join with me when mine was done to 20% or so.


Some more lolSalvage!


At this point I have a good idea of what I'm going for first- I go for Bhaflau 12NM runs and Silver Sea Boss runs- trying to go for Usukane Sune-Ate. The Bhaflau NMs has to be the worst part of salvage- I hate standing in the same place for 20 minutes just killing little things over and over until having not a single NM pop at all- they should really just make one NM force spawn per door, seeing as how the NM itself isn't a 100% drop rate anyway.
I got that card from a Silver Sea Remnants run with an NA group. The least I'll say is that I'm never going with any NA shout group for that ever again. The leader and members just weren't willing to listen to instructions and people didn't pass the cells- wasn't even slow at passing, they just didn't pass them, and waited until the cells filtered into inventory. If I ever do NA Salvage it'll definately be with a static. We ended up beating up to floor 3 and exited (With not a single 35 drop, of course), so people who wanted floor 4 and boss run got screwed.

Watchmen.
1526  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Favorite Movie of 2008 on: January 06, 2009, 12:24:22 PM
Best Film: Frost/Nixon, if you think it counts. If not...I guess TDK (Pretty close race with Iron Man though).

Biggest disappointments: IJ4, Quantum of Solace

Worst movie: Anything made by Freidberg and Seltzer. But since a dog turd would be a better movie than any of those, I suppose I'll put Over Her Dead Body.

PUP is just fine in EXP and stuff- I don't understand why people don't like PUPs in EXP (They have C in H2H because their pet is a lot stronger than the call-pets BSTs can use). The problem comes when you try to fit them into any sort of endgame event- they really can't do well as many other jobs in any of it.

Also if I'm not mistaken, the tier 4 nukes from SMN avatars are laughably weak.

Honestly, the button and switch differences between all the MP3 players make it come down to "I don't care". If it can play music, that's good enough for me.

Heh, Xarc usually is pretty lame with drops, even with bills. It just takes a lot longer to kill the demons- that's why nobody would ever sponsor Xarcabard to my knowledge.



Didn't have anything better to do on New Years Eve, so I just stood around in whitegate while doing some other reading. It's quite loud in Whitegate at this time.


As you saw above, I did WOTG missions with Ael. Here's some random pictures I took.

This guy is hilarious. I'm too lazy to read any line he says- which is what's funny because if anybody actually sounded like this in real life I think I'd ignore them in the same way. =P




What I want to know is how Lilisette managed to get the only Pugil in Vana'Diel that apparently can't float on land.


This was pretty cruel.

This pic if sort-of a spoiler for anyone who hasn't gotten far in WOTG missions. This really sums up WOTG for me- they do nothing but toss tons of characters at you they don't bother developing/introducing, and they rely more on their better animation and cinematic skills instead of actually creating an interesting story. So far, I'm not impressed with the story at all.


Funny, this is pretty much what I look like watching these cutscenes.


Well, at least I don't just stand around while enemies close in now.


I agree. It's quite awful that Jeuno only has what, 3 soldiers?


I don't know whether this is just lazy translation or if they're actually trying to make a joke. Either way it's fail.


Still not impressed. :P


Team WOTGM agogo.




I recently decided to just go along with random shout groups for Salvage- having never done it before, I was very nervous- thankfully I had someone who spoke English on my first run. Talk about lucky.




These pictures are from assorted Salvages; Up to now I've done maybe 4 or 5 runs, but I still don't quite have the hang of it- I really wish I could get an EN group, but they ever shout for it, and I dunno if I could handle a static right now (Maybe, if they were in the right time frame). The seacom says 0 for Skadi Hands...so of course two of them dropped. Personally I didn't mind too much, I just wanted to get into Salvage for once and try it out. Of course, if nobody wants them, I'm sure nobody will mind when I take some pity prizes for myself.







For me, the biggest thing so far has definately been this. This is easily one of the most sought-after items in the game.


I leave you with the curses from a JP Mithra.

I don't think it would've worked on a wolf or something though.

Quote
Hans Jørgen Olsen, a 12-year-old Norwegian boy, recently survived a moose attack by feigning death, "just like you learn at level 30 in World of Warcraft."

In WoW, "feign death" is a skill acquired by hunters at level 30 that allows them to take a page from the possum playbook, collapse to the ground, and convince their enemies -- who lose all ingrained animosity in the process -- that they've died.

According to Norwegian site Nettavisen , Hans and his sister apparently enraged one of the local moose (mooses? meese?) during a walk in the forest near their home. After shouting at the gigantic creature to ward it away from his sister, Olsen dropped to the ground, and presumably his lifebar plummeted to zero.

Moose have never been known as the wisest creature in the forest, and the boy's show of necrosis seems to have worked, as both he and his sister survived intact.

It's easy to decry video games as a menace to society but in a world where MMOs save adorable, tow-headed Norwegian children from a deadly moose, can they really be that bad?
