Pretty sure Rucks was just starting it as a joke, as being "basic" is literally just being stereotypically white and boring....I honestly giggled...

Then again, this is the same guy who actually used the word cisgender as an arguementative phrase against me... so there's that.

Also, coffee sucks.

At the risk of dragging out a nonsensical argument even further...

Why is anyone angry about pumpkin spice in the first place?  If you don't like it don't drink it.  But using it as a symbol of American complacency is just...strange.

Whatever you might think about their coffee, Starbucks treats their employees very well.  They pay well, offer health care benefits even for part time employees (which they are definitely not required to do and many places try to keep people part time specifically to not have to give them health care benefits), and is consistently ranked as one of the best companies in America to work for.  Walmart they ain't.  I think you can rightfully make the argument that places like Walmart have been very destructive to communities, forcing people into low-paying dead-end jobs as they drive every other place out of business.  You can make a moral argument for not shopping there.

But Starbucks?  That's just nonsense.

Not liking their coffee doesn't put you on any kind of moral high ground.  And it certainly doesn't give you the right to condemn people for liking it.

Let's all carve a pumpkin, roast the seeds, sprinkle them with pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon, clove, nutmeg), and enjoy with a nice cold glass of apple cider. 

Come on, who's with me?  We'll wear costumes and watch classic monster movies and everything. 

(I love roasted pumpkin seeds.  They taste like earthier popcorn and they're apparently rather healthy.)

As for haps, I'm just excited that the CD I preordered came today.  This is the first album I ever recall preordering and it's the first time in years I've been excited for new music.  It's the album "Psychotic Symphony" by Sons of Apollo- a supergroup of Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan, Derek Sherinian, Jeff Scott Soto, and Bumblefoot... five of my absolute favorite musicians.  I got the media-pak version so it has the album and a bonus disc which has the whole album sans vocals!  I'll definitely be cranking Sons of Apollo on my work commute tomorrow. 

In other haps... A few weeks back I was able to hold my nightly plank for anywhere from 2:45- 3:00 minutes, but this past week I'm barely able to hold it for 2:30 without buckling.  What's up with that?

Forum drama has always been a weird thing considering that every forum has an ignore function which it seems people are hellbent on not using as they prefer seeing whatever causes issues for them instead of blissful ignorance.

I dropped my last 100 Orbs and only got Eldigan. Which, I'm kinda fine with because I like him and didn't have one yet. Still would have liked Ayra though. Ah well.

Yep all 3 games on Steam have a button you can set to fast foward in the configuration, R2 by default.  You can even set how fast it moves out of battle and in battle.

Can we get a special badge for Rucks that says "This goes way beyond pumpkin spice" underneath it?

You best be back, @Frostillicus . :(

Would it be considered an abuse of mod powers to make that a thing?

There's a fast forward button?!  Seriously??

Also, re: unwinnable scenarios, Trails 3 on Steam has a very kind autosave, so you can always take convenient steps backwards if you've gone too far in the story.

I don't know if this has been mentioned in the thread already but does anyone remember the tech demo tri-ace did back in 2011. I remember it and i just watched it and this was running on the 360 if I recall and it was in real time. I would love to see a new Star Ocean in this style I know the anime feel but this demo just gave me goosebumps I could just only imagine if they did Star Ocean 6 in this style and fix their mistakes and learned from what happened to SO5. I regret buying the Japanese Collectors Edition of SO5. I like it more for the stuff you get rather than the game itself. The art and music are ok but the story and gameplay is just a huge letdown.
