1786  Media / Single-Player RPGs / RPGs and Homosexuality on: May 27, 2008, 07:01:01 AM
Wrote a bunch of stuff and then lost it. But anyway, skimmed the thread only.

What's the point of having a character that's only gay for the sake of being gay if it's not going to be a central plot point somehow or key to his development as a character? It would feel like that the character is only gay as an afterthought...being gay has to have an effect on the actions he chooses.

Also for the whole "Is being gay right or wrong" thing, I'm on Bernhardt side to some degree, as I think that most straight people don't think being gay is right, but rather only accepting of it as long as it doesn't affect their lives directly- I think most people are just too politically correct to say they don't like homosexuality.

Yes, I'm uncomfortable with homosexuality in the same way I'm uncomfortable about incest and pedophilia. They're all sexual taboos, so how is one "more wrong" than the other? I have the "it has nothing to do with me, so I don't care" policy: I think gays should have rights because it's not like it matters to you as an individual if others are happy being gay.
1787  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Who watch Bleach? on: May 24, 2008, 09:47:53 PM
I only watch Shounen anime in passing sometimes. They usually translate out to me as "Screw around with several main villains while having no real central focus". The best kind of show is one where they don't focus on having to build up the world too goddamn much and just get the message across, like in Now and Then, Here and There.
1788  The Rest / General Discussions / Olbermann's got it... on: May 24, 2008, 09:37:14 PM
Same here. Saw this a few days ago, was pretty big news on some forums, people were going all "He's on the most epic rant of the centuries".

Olbermann is an excellent speaker and has a way with words with scripted monologues like this. But as I recall, he's not very good at actual debating and thinking on his feet.
1789  The Rest / General Discussions / I'm O.K. playthrough video - the Jack Thompson game on: May 22, 2008, 10:06:12 AM
Game's been out for several years as I recall, I distinctly remember beating it.

Quote from: "valentine08"
damn too bad for me i still cant watch this movie


damn too bad for you i've watched this movie now go feel sorry for yourself.

Anyway, movie kicked ass, don't think I can say much about it that nobody else has already said.

I do wonder how they'll make a sequel since
Code:
everyone knows he's Iron Man now
, but I guess they can pull some convenient explanation out of their ass if they have to.

Is that what happens in the comics? I'm not a big comic reader myself.

Haven't been up to much lately, trying to grind out my Anniversary Ring so I can get that new one.

GL to everyone on Bonanza.

1793  Media / Miscellaneous Games / A Ghostbusters game? WE GOT OOOOOOOOOONE! on: May 19, 2008, 06:39:57 AM
It was said for a while that there was going to be "big news" on Ghostbusters at San Diego Comic-Con 2008. What that is remains to be seen, obviously.

Movies seldom do well when made into games because you have to go away from the source material a lot to add more stuff to the game or just have an incredibly boring and short game that's faithful to the movie. In both cases, it gets bashed.

But seeing as how this is so of a sequel to the two movies, it might be okay. This one is definately rent before buy, though, unless it gets terrible reviews. The gameplay looks incredibly boring to me right now.

Those aren't dreadlocks. They're braids.


Oh, okay. Shows how much I know about hair, I guess.

Wow...I didn't know that dreads were a black thing? And black face...how very mature.


I didn't know anybody took me seriously.

Alisha, I'm pretty sure when people ask for the full picture they're going to be expecting more than just seeing your neck. =P

Now, now, Daggerstrike. We all know that dreadlocks automatically give you the power of the Super-Negro.

You're obviously missing the point I'm trying to make.

Why don't you go back to listening to your awesome gangsta rap music?

Jeez, banned already? Wasn't as epic as I hoped it would be. :(
1797  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Secret of Evermore on: May 09, 2008, 06:28:32 AM
I don't think he was implying that they do, though its pretty likely that that's what he thinks.

Not that it matters anyway, even if they were related it shouldn't have a bearing on how much you enjoy the game. One thing I don't like about sequels or side-stories sometimes is that they end up being just for the fans instead of for the general gaming audience. It's fine to have references to each other (Suikoden, Main Series Final Fantasy) in some form or another, but I find it irritating if they base entire plot points off some of that stuff.

Anyway, Secret of Evermore is pretty difficult if you make it difficult. You can spend an ungodly amount of time grinding just like any RPG to make it easier. I found the alchemy system to be really irritating to keep track of, and just that alone almost made me not want to play the game sometimes. It's overall a pretty good game, American RPGs based off of JRPGs seem to get a lot of fluff sometimes just for being American.

It's all about how the breasts will look when paired with the rest of the body, really. Some people just look better without gigantic boobs flopping everywhere.

Regardless of how much of a simpleton Validus is, I do wonder what's the difference between people liking really huge breasts and people liking fat people, liking children, or even liking people of the same sex is- it's all something that individuals find subjectively attractive.

Only one I can think of.

Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest.

There, I said it.
1800  The Rest / General Discussions / Queen Elizabeth is banning porn on her island. on: April 30, 2008, 08:47:18 PM
How is banning hardcore, kinky pornography because someone who's a murderer happens to watch it any different from banning a violent video game when some school shooter happens to play them?
