1801  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Rhapsody port on DS?! on: October 02, 2008, 12:22:07 PM
I'm not sure if it's because I played Rhapsody a long, long time ago, but I remember Cornet being one of the few female characters in a JRPG that I could actually not only tolerate, but find likable. Battle system was irritating if you didn't level up enough, I ended up getting stuck in a dungeon for like an hour and forty-five minutes and then got a GAME OVER. Not fun.

I agree wholeheartedly with everything you say about The Simpsons and their recent episodes, but I still personally prefer them over Family Guy episodes because they're a lot more coherent (which isn't saying a lot), and I guess I probably just have a bias because the characters are just more diverse to begin with. Really, while Family Guy has its good moments, I've never felt that its writing is humor at all- it's just awkwardness to forcibly squeeze laughs out of the audience. ANYBODY could write that. Family Guy's humor is about the same level as the Genre Movie series for me, except Family Guy is actually tolerable because it's on TV rather than making me pay $8 a view.

I still like The Simpsons more even as far as humor goes, but the show hasn't had good, unforced character moments for years, including the movie.
1803  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Need some recommendation for incredibly simple games on: September 30, 2008, 04:29:08 AM
Not sure if this should go in the helper monkey or here, but yeah, I need some really simple games to be able to play with some really small kids. I guess Atari-like games where there's only one button would be the best thing, since they can't seem to figure out games like Megaman or even Mario for that matter. Flashy lights and ADD-high preferred, because you know kids love that stuff.

Also maybe I'll play them if I get brain damage in the next few months I suppose.

I feel that while Family Guy and American Dad both have good moments, I think most people would agree with me that's it's not going to leave a mark anywhere near as big as The Simpsons has. I do think that The Simpsons has become weaker over the years, but I still think its superior to at least those other two shows simply for the characters (Guess Dincrest explains it much better than I do). I haven't seen many American Dad episodes but Family Guy just tends to annoy me.

But on topic, how was the episode? I have no idea if I could even access The Simpsons here outside of DVDs. :P

Even if it may've worn out its welcome I'd still rather watch it than almost any other animated sitcom

Amen. It boggles my mind why everyone thinks Family Guy is funny.

Kinda lame that harder difficulty levels are something you have to pay for.

Man, I've been listening to the stage music on youtube and stuff...I'm pumped and ready for this game. It can't come out on XBL any sooner. =P

I /search you every time I get on...I can never seem to catch you on, heh.

Anyway, got MNK to level 21. Named my chocobo in true FFXI alliteration fashion- GrueneGingembre. Yeah, it's in one word like that, kind of annoying that they do that.

I don't think it's possible to literally "read your thoughts"- so i don't think you need to worry about that. And as far as ethics go, this really is no different from people listening in on your private phone calls.
1809  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: World's Most Disgusting Apartment! on: September 24, 2008, 05:20:33 AM
I'm still more amused by the beer can house. :P

And why implement pheromone detection in the first place?

Chemical signals given by the body can potentially tell people monitoring some supporting evidence they might need to accuse people of being a terrorist. And god only knows how much evidence you need from an unreliable scan like this to get anyone to believe you.
1811  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Even better than Losfer's Topic. MEGAMAN: THE MOVIE on: September 24, 2008, 12:34:44 AM

In some way, I'm actually looking forward to seeing it only because he's taking it so damn seriously. :P
1812  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: September 22, 2008, 08:28:09 AM
Been working on MNK a bit recently. Level 16 atm. You should let me play with you sometime Parn. :P

 Not much to say about my chocobo, still trying to decide on a name.

I want to use my assault tags for something, they've been rotting for a while now, and it'd be nice to do some assaults, Nyzul or not- though it'd be nice to get myself a Nyzul katana so I can learn Blade: Kamu.

Then again, I don't think I want to go get 5250 WS points or whatever the hell was required.

Uh oh, double post!

Well I got back into doing sky a bit last weekend, but nothing good really dropped. I'm not even going to bother posting a shot. :P

In other news, I've been doing some more laid-back stuff in game, most notably chocobo raising.

I'm surprised at how much fun I'm having with it, guess I should've done it sooner.

Aw, ain't she cute. Well anyway, I need help coming up with a name now.  There's a pretty decent amount of words to make up a name with, but I'm having a hard time deciding. I was going to do "Face Destroyer" until I realized that'd probably only be funny the few times I said it. :P
1814  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Macross Frontier on: September 15, 2008, 07:40:30 PM
It's not splitting hairs at all. Robotech went out of its way to dumb down what was happening in Macross, and completely ignores certain principles that carry from Macross through to all its descendants. From Protoculture to the origins of the Zentraedi, etc. In Robotech, the relationship between the Zentraedi and Humans is coincidental. In Macross, it's one of the fundamental pieces of the story.

I would argue that's because back when Robotech was created none of the other Macross shows were out (At least, none of the major ones, to my knowledge).

The origin of the Macross itself is changed (It became Zor's battle fortress instead of a casualty from the Supervision Army). The future of Max and Miriya changes immensely (2 daughters instead of 7? What?). The whole Zentran-Human interspecies thing is dispensed with, and Robotech largely ignores the three Zentraedi visitors who sneak onboard the Macross.

I guess if things like that are important to you, you can watch Macross again, but I picked up a lot of those things just from watching Do You Remember Love? and Macross 7. Me personally, I understand why lots of purists demand people watch the original Macross, but I don't really feel like going through 26 (39? Shows how much I know) more episodes so I can get superfluous information like that which I picked up watching OVAs and the other series along the way anyway.
1815  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Macross Frontier on: September 15, 2008, 09:22:21 AM
I would encourage you to watch the original SDF Macross. It's a far, far better told story than Robotech's bastardisation. Similarly, Mospaeda is better on its own; I can't say the same for Southern Cross though.

I wouldn't, personally. It's more or less the same thing with only one major difference that will confuse you as far as continuity goes if you watch Robotech first (Protoculture). I mean, yeah, the writing was dumbed down to fit children but I watched Robotech Macross Saga and thought it was perfectly fine. I find the difference in experience with watching Robotech and Macross is really splitting hairs. Hate Harmony Gold all you want, but I think people are way too hard on Robotech itself.

I'm going to want for Macross F to finish before watching the thing. I heard that it drags really badly after the first few episodes though.
