He's probably running out of ideas. He used a lot of the ideas he already used in the second one, even if he didn't have all the flashbacks in the middle.

I liked the Doraemon part, though.
1922  The Rest / General Discussions / Why do people suck at grammar? on: June 08, 2006, 08:39:52 PM
As far as proofreading goes, it gets really difficult to check your work while typing after you get used to typing incorrectly. I can't tell you how many times I've been peer-correcting essays, and I run into people using "lol", "ur", etc. on a homework assignment. I can't imagine being the teacher grading that; I'd go insane.

While we're on typos, this also goes into slang and normal conversation: are you guys picky about the common errors (Subject-Verb: "I is")? People make these kinds of mistakes all the time, because they use them in normal speech. I think it ends up being the same way when you're typing over the internet, and sometimes even handwriting: It's not a matter of being lazy, I think it's a bad habit people pick up after being to the wrong sites.

Thank god I came to RPGFan, or else I'd be failing at essays. Hard.

Good. I'm tired of seeing idiots pretending to be Japanese because Japanese players are the ultimate players, or people worshipping Japanese players, while they decidedly look down upon us while calling us impolite (Which, ironically, is impolite in of itself). Besides, Japanese and English players hardly ever interact with each other from my experience in PSO and FFXI, if only for the language barrier.

I eagerly await this game. You get a million brownie points for getting me fired up, Parn.
1924  The Rest / General Discussions / Girl Pregnant at 11 years old. on: May 18, 2006, 07:46:01 PM

Her 34-year-old mother, who gave birth to her youngest child eight months ago, said she was 'proud' of her daughter.

Right. I'm sad to see that there are people that are people this irresponsible. Smoking at nine years old? Drinking at ten? Another thing is that I'm confused on how the guy who did this can be charged with rape, when it doesn't seem like it was forced anyway. Always blame the man for the pregnancy, right?

The R Button on my Black GBA SP started fading in responsiveness recently, and eventually it just stopped working. There's not much I can say beside that, except that I tried the whole "Twist your GBA" solution, where the R Button is malfunctioning because of trapped air. Thought I'd ask here before I pay Nintendo to look at the thing.

Sorry, I just had to put this in.
1927  The Rest / General Discussions / Bear eats monkey at zoo on: May 16, 2006, 09:23:47 PM
I'd hate to be some 5 year old boy who gets traumatized for life because he just saw his favorite animal get mauled and digested.

This doesn't really belong here in ways, but it made me chuckle at the thought if "bear" got replaced by "man", I'd bet the PETA would be all over his ass in seconds. Kind of funny how they don't consider humans animals anymore. Gotta love people who suck at science!

Pretty straightforward, I'd like to know what you guys think of the following pictures:


Aside from telling me what I can improve on, I'd like to know which one you think looks better. At the moment I'm leaning towards pic 1, but I feel that 2 has better proportions for the person's body.

In case you're wondering, yes, the costume is influenced by S5 Hero. I liked his costume design, I just didn't like seeing it on guys.

EDIT: Since I don't have photoshop, I took a few minutes to edit and color it a little in MS Paint. Tell me what you think.

1929  Site Related & More / RPGFan: The Site / Music Samples on: May 11, 2006, 01:55:11 AM
The music samples in the soundtrack reviews get me empty realplayer files. Is this an unfixed problem, or am I just behind by a lot? Or is it that you guys remove music for a soundtrack/game after a certain amount of time?

I found it amusing, since someone actually took the time to make a translator like this. Personally, I thought the whole retardation is what made it funny. Some people still enjoy mundane things like this.

L337 isn't even funny in parody anymore dude. Lame.

I'm getting a "It's not funny because it isn't the internet fad anymore" vibe.
1931  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Final Fantasy XII X 3 on: May 08, 2006, 09:31:56 PM
I dunno, hasn't it been a trend for Final Fantasy and a lot of JRPGs in general to have girly looking boys as main characters? Bishonen characters are nothing new, they seem to attract more female Japanese players, which is beyond me.
1932  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Anime/Manga Journal on: May 07, 2006, 09:36:34 PM
Finished Now and Then, Here and There and REC. REC, in particular, surprized me, because it doesn't give as much crap as a lot of other Romantic comedies do, probably because the whole series is only long enough to fit into one movie. This approximately 90-minute series accomplished a lot more in the 9 10-minute episodes it had than some other 26-episode series I've watched. I usually don't like this type of anime, but I'm glad this was an exception.

Watching Macross 7. This series is a sharp contrast to REC, because it stretches out the series with so much filler and so little explanation that I get irritated. I don't know if it's purposely funny that Basara is so damn into his music, or it's only that way to me because of how he sings in the most serious situations.

I'm on episode 19, and I'm hoping they will start explaining some of the stuff going on, because up to now it's been pretty formulatic.

Good stuff. Except for the final dungeon, which doesn't even let you save before the final boss (wtf, mate?). That's just not cool.

You could always run back after beating the Prince's group's boss. It's better than going through the whole damn dungeon again. I'm guessing they did it because there's this point where you make a decision that affects which ending you get, so either they want you to play the game again from start to finish to get the other choice, or just annoy you by making you go through the 2-hour dungeon again (Of course, the second time around it takes a lot less time, especially in New Game +, where you can dash without having Cathari.)

You probably just jinxed it.
