It's more cost effective than a cocaine habit.

Not always.

Random crap.

Last week, sky had some pretty lame drops.

This week I was a bit more lucky though.

I tanked NIN/DRK for the first time, which is the first time this LS ever let me main tank something. For the most part it went pretty smooth, but our second Suzaku still had some pretty lame-o drops. :P

Random conversation time.

SPY GENTLEMEN, you have to be one of the biggest morons I've ever seen over the internet, and I'm sure you know how much weight that carries. Granted though, that in same ways I can appreciate your intellect because you are probably one of the best veiled trolls I've ever seen. Aside from your thinly veiled ad hominem through your dumb-ass internet persona that is on the level of camp in The Tick superhero Carpeted Man, most of your "logical" arguments might as well be all the same provided by Stainmaster.

Why do girl gamers make a point that they're girls? Because they have boobs, that's why. If you play any MMORPG and call some girl gamer a "he" or "him" it doesn't bother me at all if they correct me and let me know that they're, in fact, girls. I'm sure you'll be perfectly comfortable with me referring to you as Mrs. Gentleman though.

Escaflowne is probably one of my top mecha anime of all time. The romance part is kind of annoying, but for what it was it's better than 90% of the shitty romance stories the Japanese can put out.

Disagree, The Matrix is a great movie.

My point wasn't that The Matrix was a bad movie (I thought it was okay), it's that people hype trailers like no tomorrow because they have fast editing and mystique around them. Here's another example: Cloverfield. Everyone was going all "omg it's godzilla", "omg it's the second coming", and the movie ended up being...okay to just being bad because it was all exposition.
1686  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / The Dark Knight on: June 30, 2008, 11:40:41 PM

God damn, that review is terribly written. Iíve read better reviews on IGN.


The first comment on that page sums up my feelings nicely:

Man I hope this score is accurate and not just a product of the hype machine.

Seriously, The Dark Knight is one of the most hyped movies ever and it would ridiculous if it came out and it didn't get high scores. All Batman fans seem to want is anger, darkness, and stuff blowing up, and that makes a good Batman movie.

Good trailer is good. Matrix had a good trailer too, and it's not that great of a movie.

Well with such an infinite loop it would become the greatest thing ever

It's an infinite loop of being "infinitely superior"...so I dunno wtf that would make it.

Honestly, shows like One Piece, Bleach, and Naruto all have the same damn flaws- none of the shows are ABOUT anything. And if they are, it's just the backdrop and almost nothing the show ever does will have any kind of progress along that storyline.

Finished Gundam 00 recently (kind of). It was pretty good, much better than the SEED series anyway. There's a lot of nonsense the series can do without though, the first half was incredibly boring and I wouldn't blame anyone for hating the show just for the crappy beginning.

Victory Gundam is easily becoming my favorite Gundam series.

Victory Gundam starts off fine, though not surprisingly leaves you asking how many times you've seen this damn storyline before. Then near the middle and end it has some of the dumbest things I've ever seen in a Gundam show. Most of the fights are top-notch, but the story and characters ended up being really superfluous for me.
1688  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Wall-E ...and Pixar; shifting their demographic? on: June 29, 2008, 03:51:37 AM
Wall-E is actually an idea a lot of the Pixar staff have wanted to do for a while now, but they weren't allowed to because of the concept (dystopian future, etc).

I doubt Pixar will have a demographic to change though, thus far they have made movies that appeal to both children and adults, and there's no reason for them to change it so that it only appeals to adults. If you watched their last film (Ratatouille), that had plenty of stuff in it for adults, and lots of double entendres that I thought were really clever.

I haven't watched Wall-E yet, but I heard there's plenty of cutesy stuff in it to attract the kids, and I recall as a kid I never really gave much of a damn about story anyway, depending on what kind of show/movie it was. Of course, this depends on how old your definition of child is.
1689  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Diablo 3? on: June 28, 2008, 11:28:12 AM
This is a definite must-buy. I will definately be getting this game when Blizzard releases it in 2022.

Haven't posted in a while, so I guess I'll do a bit of an update.

Was screwing around with my NPC and saw this guy floating around, so killed him for some small rewards:

Ran to Promyvion-Holla for Tactics Pearl quests as well as a shot at the last Memosphere I don't. Well, after killing about a million Cravers in Mea to get the memosphere this spire makes up for it by dropping on the first damn one I kill:

Have had some extra time lately so I decided to give another shot at Nashmeira's Plea.

This fight was not interested in proving my memory wrong of how incredibly tough this stationary mish-mash of shiny metal is.

So after two tries, our WAR has to leave. Naturally I go drag along the only WAR I know around who's bored often enough after his regular Nyzul runs that don't drop anything to give me a hand. ;)

Everyone has to leave after this, so it's now or never. Well, obviously a post with this many pictures only has one obvious ending:

Go figure the last thing he does before he croaks is kill me, though:

I have to say, this is probably the most exciting battle I've ever had in FFXI.

And what FFXI post is not complete without showing off some shiny new item?

1691  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Diablo 3? on: June 27, 2008, 04:05:26 AM
I've never read the Sin War books (dunno what those are), but I do recall listening to some story bits in the PS version of Diablo. There's supposedly still two guys down in hell that were at the same level of Andariel and Duriel. Forgot what their names were, though. Guess a Diablo 3 could be about those guys.

This is based on my knowledge of the story from the games alone, though.
1692  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / The Dark Knight on: June 27, 2008, 03:24:23 AM
Heath Ledger's Joker is going to be completely different from what I recall of any Joker I've seen. This Joker is a lot more dangerous and seems more like a generic psychopath rather than someone who...well, cracks jokes all the time and is funny and menacing at the same time.

I'm not sure if I'll like this Joker or not, but all signs so far point to yes. :P

And from I've heard, doesn't Two-Face appear in this movie and tries to kill Joker? If you like Two-Face you might want to go see this film anyway.
1693  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Diablo 3? on: June 27, 2008, 03:21:45 AM
How can there ever possibly be a Diablo 3? It's been years since I beat Diablo 2 but I'm pretty sure the story was completely wrapped up in that thing. :P
1694  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Rumor: Mega Man 9 being made on: June 27, 2008, 03:16:36 AM
I'm glad they're making it 8-bit- Not because I'm a huge fan of the graphics, but because for some reason all the 8-bit Megaman games always felt a lot faster-paced to me. Perhaps it's only because of the multiple frames they had to add in for Megaman's animations, but Megaman 7 and 8 felt like they were going in slow motion when compared to 1-6.
1695  The Rest / General Discussions / George Carlin RIP on: June 26, 2008, 03:26:27 AM
ESPN's Mike and Mike In the Morning talked about his life and death for a pretty good chunk of their mostly sports based show.

Who cares?

Just for curiousity sake, Hathen, who WOULD you consider funny? I fear your answer.


Okay, seriously though, off the top of my head I can't remember a lot of comedians, but I think I'll go with Lewis Black. And yes, he's one of the people who cites Carlin as an influence.

I would argue that the true purpose of a comedian is to make people look at issues in a different way, which is definately what Carlin did, as well as many of the greats.

Carlin had genuinely biting humour. And he wasn't afraid of offending people with his opinion.

That's the problem I had with laughing at his jokes. He basically took "What would people be offended by?" and then said it. There's no punchline, no creativity or writing talent involved. What he does have is presentation. If you get a few good comedy acts in the thing is that your presence alone will start being funny.

I'm not saying I've never laughed at him, I just don't see what the huge uproar is. He was influential, maybe, but I don't find him incredibly funny. The kind of observational humor I hear from him is similar to what any cynical person would say about said topic.
