IT SURE IS A SHAME THE DAILY SHOW GOT CANCELED.

tl;dr of tonight's debates
Trump: "(indistinguishable string of racist/misogynistic/mildly humorous/easily disprovable 10 second sound bites)"
HRC: "I'm only talking down to voters because it's embarrassing that half of America is voting for this guy. Apparently a lifetime of experience in politics (and a vagina) makes me less qualified to lead a country than 4 bankruptcies and a few months of fear mongering and angry facial expressions."
Lester Holt: "Mr. Trump, I'm a registered Republican, but since I'm also a black man, can you please describe to white america why I'm clearly biased against you and it's ok for them to be afraid of me?"
Media on 9/27: "trump trump trump trump trump trump trump trump trump sports. Also, here's 500 words about why HRC's choice in foot wear makes her look too bossy to be POTUS"

After huffing and puffing, shouting over both moderator and opponent (and lying through his teeth), every online poll I've seen so far is indicating that the nation believes that Trump won the debate. I am flabbergasted and disgusted. I fear the death of compassion and intelligence is already upon us. If they'd just do even a perfunctory amount of research most reasonable people would come to the obvious conclusion that he is so divorced from reality that it borders on sociopathy. But the populace does not care about frank discussion in an open forum (or you know, verifiable facts), they are only swayed by their own fear and hatred. The idiots really are going to win this and it's sickening. I love America, but I'm not overly thrilled with Americans right now.

This has gotten to the point that I'm afraid I might end up dissociating myself from anyone I know who ends up voting for the man.  He stands against everything I've ever believed was right about the country I was born in.

If it makes you feel any better, the consensus right now seems to be that Trump lost the debate somewhere between badly and really, really badly.

Every time I think about that game, I keep hearing "It is time.. FOR YOU TO DIE!" in my head.

I tried Skies of Arcadia once and couldn't get into it, but I really should try again.  What's the best format/console to play it on?  Could I play it on my Wii U gamepad perchance??

The game goes for 100+ now if you dont still have it.  As Caitlin said Gamecube or Wii is your only choice or the orginal dreamcast version.  Alternativly you can watch us do a blind playthrough on Monday nights on our Twitch page which allows you to experince the game without actually playing it! Its win win! The music in the game is fantastic and for my first time playing it I am really enjoying it despite the stupid high random encounter rate.  The one thing this soundtrack does that I love is during boss fights if you are about to die the music gets serious in tone, or if your about to win it changes to a heroic tune.  Its actually really awesome.

Well I just did something fun, I went ahead and scanned a list of people actually running for president... took awhile even to find the list.

There's this guy, Joe Maldonado, who made the ballots

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2015/12/01/the-guy-running-for-president-that-you-likely-havent-heard-about/

Yep... pretty interesting... his pic for the ballot thingy was better.

A lot of them look like boring re-treads of the same old candidates though.

Hero also learns Scorch,  if you want to see the animation for a breath attack without using a monster class or Monster Masher.  It's probably the best screen clearing attack that costs zero MP. Better than Thin Air, which is very good but deals less damage and a type (wind) which is resisted by more enemies.

One bummer is that I'm not sure human characters can learn the ice version of Scorch.  I'd have to check a list of skills learned by monster classes, but I think that skill is enemies–only.

EDIT: okay it looks like you CAN learn the ice version of Scorch,  but it comes from Galumph, one of the most advanced monster classes.

Never really realized how messed up some of The Police's lyrics are. Songs about stalking; murdering; older dudes wanting to bang (and possibly actually banging) very young girls; rape; etc.
I mean, dang, Sting...


Actual haps: My wife is leaving for her sister's wedding in Hawaii this weekend. She'll be gone all next week, so I'm taking all 5 days off. That way, I don't have to worry about the day to day shit by myself. Gonna be 7 days of just me and my son, and no freakin' work.



Hell yes.

I like Gary Johnson

No really, not as a joke, I could possibly vote for this guy.

Like, it's not "oh might as well be the 3rd party" he's literally a better candidate, I've checked all the issues and important things and he's just way better.

As far as I can tell, he's the only candidate who is actually not racist, for instance, he doesn't care about like all the petty drug stuff, and most importantly he's anti-war.

Aeolus, since you already have Thief for Ruff, I REALLY recommend Monster Masher for him! I don't think I'm having him switch classes at all... it's such a handy class.

I made the mc a monster masher...then I got really sad when I heard that if you make Ruff a mm the wolf does the breathe attacks.

You should make Ruff a Shepard at the very least just to have the wolf in sheep's clothing.
It's sooo cute. Also, yeah, the breath attacks are great. They're a little OP though... Scorch does 110-150 damage, so I can wipe out entire encounters in one move. But considering how much I'm grinding for Mervyn's vocations (he's just become a Luminary), it's coming in handy. :P

I wouldn't worry about that, to be honest. Nintendo has always had every previous system be backward compatible, and I'd expect the same of the NX, if you're interested in getting it.

I am interested in the NX, if it actually ends up being what it sounds like it is going to be. I wonder though...  since Nintendo apparently doesn't consider the NX a successor to the Wii U, if the NX actually will honor backwards compatability with games for that system. Of course, time will tell...




Anyways, as far as game journaling, I'm currently in the middle of Chapter 2 of Dead Space 2. Still not digging Isaac's speaking role (it kind of adds a cheesiness to it all), but many things have been improved from the first game. For one, there's definitley a smoother and faster flow to character and enemy movement, which already has me using Stasis more than I ever did in the first game (aside from when it was forced, of course). Some enemies come at you so fast, you barely have time to react.
The sense of dread is not quite as strong as it is in the first game. Probably because you're not as alone as you are in the first game (this one takes place on a space colony), and the gameplay is very similar between the two. Not trying to downplay this one, though. It definitley has its moments. A few jump scares got me good.
I simply can't give enough props to the atmosphere. There's one part, in the midst of the necromorphs slaughtering the populace, where you walk past some citizens hiding behind the locked doors of their respective quarters. Some of them are screaming in terror; some angrily yelling; others pleading; a baby is frantically crying behind one.. and there's nothing you can do for any of them. It's pretty crazy, in a good way.
