I've been guilty of #1-6. I haven't played Animal Crossing or Fallout 3, so I'm not sure if I would be guilty of those, too. :P

Guys that are seriously (IE not just being horny morons) looking for gamer girls are using it as a keystone, not as the whole friggin' bridge. :P

And that whole thing about playing the right kind of game- if you meet them over the internet while playing a game, that's sort of indicative of what games they like playing. Now, over stuff like FPS I don't think I've seen any relationships happen (Though I recall that one guy did use guns in Halo to spell out "Will you marry me" or something like that), but I seen it happen over online RPGs a lot more often than people think (Which is more relevant considering we're apparently talking about RPGs, hah).

This is for a couple reasons. First, the fact that online RPGs take so goddamn long to make any sort of progress in the game (Not counting fast-dungeon crawls like D2) means that the girl obviously likes the game enough to invest that absurd amount of time into the game. Second thing is that most relationships begin because they play together really often, and probably talk over Teamspeak or Ventrillo, and it's easier to have a connection with someone if you're having an actual conversation with them instead of just chatting in crappy internet speak. Basically, a game that emphasizes lots of team-based gameplay (WoW, PSO, FFXI, etc) will probably be a lot easier to find someone on because you'd actually have time to get to know them because you are forced to play together to accomplish things.

Of course, like with all places, most of the girls are taken. =P

Just stating my observations, this is not from personal experience because like I said, I'm not interested in internet relationships, or relationships at all at the moment.

Well, I don't hit on people over internet gaming for the simple fact that I think it's impossible to get to know anyone over chatting alone (If you voice chat that might work, though). I do think I'd be able to find a girl I'd get along with better over a game though, since that does mean we share at least one thing in common. I see the opposite happening a lot- people getting a girlfriend or boyfriend to get into something they like doing. Why not just get someone who was already interested? (Though I'd say if you're going to go through the trouble of trying to pick up a girl in an online game, you'd probably have an easier time in an arcade or something)

I've seen internet relationships work before, though those are obviously very few and far in-between, and they always involve the two people meeting in real life before any sort of dating happens.

And there's easy girls in every country, you just need to know where to look. The biggest problem is that guys that walk into bars don't get the concept that only about 10% of the girls in there are single and in the mood to date.

I guess he's targeting the single aging population?

Her face reminds me of the stares into your soul fad on YTMND.

God those pictures always crack me up, she looks like she has Down Syndrome or something.

Forgot to take pictures of Dracula, but oh well. Finally finished all 51 assaults!

Salvage was nice enough to drop this thing:


Some random low-tier ZNMs I did yielded some items for me. Honestly, only one of them is of any real use.

Got the Slayer just in time, I'd say, because my BLU just hit 75.

In the long term, eating hot things while drinking cold things can end up being bad for you when you're older.

I, of course, ignore that rule.

Why does the game suck?


1674  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenogears made me puke (Soylent stufffff) on: March 23, 2009, 01:03:04 AM
Are we going to do cheap jokes now?

Is Soylent Green good?

It varies from person to person.

I find it funny how so many people continue reading Naruto even though we all know it sucks.

I think we're all just trying to watch it die.

I think more worth complaining about than The Prophets are the magic D&D Fireball monsters (Pah Wraiths) that were in season 7.

God season 7 makes me facepalm so bad.

I don't mind filmmakers trying to make artsy-beauty sex scenes, but even that sex scene felt hackneyed. Oh wow, you're filming their silhouettes, I've never seen that in a film before.

It's easy to find boobs on the internet, you don't waste 10 minutes have two people banging each other, just makes the director look incredibly self-absorbed.

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?
1679  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

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.
