This image sums up my opinion of FFT:

That aside, I find the Fire Emblem series to be equally flawed, though I have been enjoying Awakening, even if I've had to grind a little.

New episode is up! Recorded 2 today, my voice hurts - I really am not used to speaking for a long time.

...I liked Transformers Armada and felt the Third in the Trilogy was really thought out for a kid's show.

I'd say the 90's if only because I missed most of the good stuff in the 80's, while a lot of 70's shows haven't aged as well. I also felt like it helped lead to more serious and story focused cartoons, but the more I think about it, the more that stuff just ebbs and flows for animation that isn't from Japan.

Of course, this is coming from somebody who watched a ton of cartoons growing up only to say that there were only 22 cartoons worth watching...

  • Looney Tunes
  • Spongebob
  • Animaniacs
  • Dexter's Labratory
  • Futurama
  • Megas XLR
  • Teen Titans
  • Batman
  • X-Men
  • Ducktales
  • Beast Wars: Transofrmers
  • Avatar: The Last Airbender
  • Gargoyles
  • Swat Kats
  • Oban-Star Racers
  • Xyber 9: New Dawn
  • He-Man (Reboot)
  • The Grimm Adventures of Billy & Mandy
  • Sonic SatAM
  • Samurai Jack
  • Thundercats
  • The Herculoids (nostalgia)

[ReBoot would've been on it had I ever gotten over the crappy animation. Code Lyoko would've been on it had it not stetched out a 26-40 max episode story to over 90 episodes. Transformer G1 and GI Joe would've been on there had I not just watched the same 3 episodes on VHS over and over again as a kid. Invader Zim would've been on it if I hadn't watched it from beginning to end a while back and realized it was a really morbid-for-morbid's-sake show]

I hate looking strictly decade-by-decade.  But anyways.  I can forego the rose-tinted glasses and say that we are honestly in a great time right now for Western cartoons.  Avatar, Adventure Time, Steven Universe, Futurama, Rick and Morty, Archer, etc. etc.
I DO think the 90s were a time to shine for anime though.  More gems there then the decades after (it's a generalization though, that's not to say the 00's and 10's have nothing).

1.  At home because I'm anti-social.

Same. Plus, gyms are gross. I do bodyweight exercises with resistance bands. What I really like about it is that it allows for a lot of creativity, and produces good results.

Also, the UPS digital sign info is a golden nugget of wisdom buddy. I can't thank you enough for making me privy to this. Its astounding the modern conveniences that elude me in light of my technological ignorance. I need to work on that.

Glad to be of service. You can do the same thing with USPS packages. I wouldn't doubt that Fed Ex does something similar as well.
Resistance bands are good and all, but as I've said before I"m atvthe gym to build strength up. First, foremost, priority 1. If I lose a few pounds in the process, cool. If I have to lose some weight to improve my capability, will do. But at the end of the day, I care little if I can run 400 meters at a full sprint, but if I can bench that 315 1 more time, or get that 505 deadlift I've been busting my ass for...all is well in my world.

"Father and Son" by Cat Stevens has one of my favorite lines in it:
"From the moment I could talk, I was ordered to listen." 


That's deep shit, man...

Also, never realized how many good songs were from Cat Stevens....not that it isn't uncommon for me to have no idea who is singing on the radio, but still...Wild World? The First Cut is the Deepest? (okay, I've only heard covers of that one before, but still)

...as for me, I'm listening to M&L: Paper Jam's Boss theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZ0cfWjSjyI

MASS EFFECT 2/ Finished 2 firewalker missions, all recruiting missions taken care of, can't find Ish's stupid package on the citadel and I think now its time to move on.

I did literally everything I wanted to get to except SHadow Broker DLC so I think that is next before moving on with the narrative.

Quick question. Can anyone tell me if Jacobs' loyalty mission is worth it for any other reason than his loyalty? Can't stand him reallly. Could care less about his characters loyalty or the trophy involved.

Okayyy so I hate to say that I haven't played either of these.
Everyone says they're both good...
but which should I start with?

(and yes, I'll eventually play both of them)

Which FE?

As for my response, you could try to challenge yourself and run both at the same time.

Alternatively, run FFT first since screwing up there is slightly harder to do (unless you're playing FE:Awakening at which point, that's the easiest to get into by far).

Spergy answer is that the FE games are generally easier to understand (there's like only four formulas to pay attention to in most games) as the numbers and stat sheets will tell you virtually everything you need to know, but you need that information more since death is permanent (outside of Awakening Casual) and very easy to walk into when starting off. FFT on the other hand gives you a lot more leeway in regards to screw ups and mistakes (well aside from the fact that you can't just move to check ranges), which is good given the sheer amount of arcane bullshit constantly running in the background (Zodiac Compatibility is the worst it gets, but Brave and Faith are also trouble spots for newbies).

Plotwise, FFT has an amazing story for a videogame but the PSX's translation is the pits. The FE games meanwhile are a lot more straight forward, but generally vary in quality between titles and come in two game arcs (which basically goes FEs {1, 2, 3}, {4, 5}, {6, 7}, {8}, {9, 10}, {Awakening, Fates}, with quality ranging from 4, 5, 7 & 9 to 3, 10 then finally 1, 2, 6, 8 & Awakening).

(Also as an FYI, if you're looking at playing Shadow Dragon, know that its a remake of FE 1 and for all intents and purposes falls within the same locations in each category. Same goes for New Mystery of the Emblem: Heroes of Light and Shadow but applies to FE 3.)

(Also also, don't even bother with the FFTA games. They are both crap.)

I like Fire Emblem more.

People seem to really, REALLY love FF Tactics, but I never got the hype - its gameplay seemed like a hot mess to me.
