Wouldn't that just add packaging authenticity? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2019 - 01:44 AM)

I read a anecdote of someone recently receiving a Glacialord with mold because apparently online stores' warehouses have been sitting on Fansproject products like that for years.

@  Rycochet : (13 December 2019 - 11:56 AM)

Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

@  Nevermore : (12 December 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

With my mouth, usually.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 04:33 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

its not my favorite because of 6&9, but 10/10-2 are close to the top. Blue Mages are always hard to use long term... however I used him as a lancer mostly... and if you grind enough and complete the grid for all the characters job classes don't matter as much.

I didn't use wakka, because I hated playing Blitzball


First time through I didnt touch blitzball, but I started playing it in my second game and actually started to enjoy it. And you aint kidding about how much the sphere grid could power people up. I took Rikku through Auron and Wakka's paths and by the end she was mugging monsters to death. icon-fire.gif

I think Final Fantasy stopped being Final Fantasy when the PlayStation was release. Not that the games that follow weren't good (most weren't) but rather they just weren't anything like what preceded them.

Yeah, everything after VI, save for IX, should be Final Science Fiction. They kind of leave the fantasy genre hanging after that.

I don't know... are 2 games really that big of a departure that they need a new series title lol.

besides its not like there wasn't fantasy elements in those games. and its not like there isn't sci-fi elements in the other games.

"tiamat level" in the original for example

So, am I the only person who likes FFX the best? I loved the battle system and sphere grid and thought the voice acting was superb. I even really liked Tidus! The only part of FFX that left me cold was Kimarhi because I could never find a real effective use for him in battle. FFX has my favorite ending too on account of it being a total downer. :(


Hey, give me a copy of the game, and I'll see if it becomes my favorite. :P

that's always been a bone i have to pick with, well, most RPGS. a fantasy setting, yet somehow, someway, we work in futuristic machinery. Either as alien technology, lost ancients, etc. I don't mind steampunk as much, but robots that exceed our technology popping up in sword and sorcery games...bugs me.

The only ones that don't bother me in that aspect is Chrono Trigger/Cross, since time travel was inherent to the games.

You're the one slamming them as crap when I'm saying they aren't. You've made several factual errors which shows me you really weren't paying attention. Ergo, You're looking at them a certain way that limits your understanding. You are being elitist and you're doing it in an aggressive way.

More importantly, "How can you NOT love" is something said in jest. there's no way people who already voiced dislike would suddenly say "of course I love them!". That's stupid.

Saying "they aren't as great" is a whole other ballpark as decrying them as emo whiner cut-outs. Which I totally defend. Oh, and now you're attacking the plot too. Wonderful.


I'm saying they're crap, since they are. When a character's dialogue consists of "..." and "whatever" to 80%, you have a very, very jivey character. Love him all you want, he's not a good character. Nothing elitist about being realistic. Not remembering a tiny piece of story, that isn't even related to the one I'm "slamming" the most doesn't at all mean I wasn't paying attention, it just means I played the game TEN YEARS AGO, and it wasn't QUITE significant enough to remember.

It's funny that you accuse me of elitism, while you're going "you just don't understand the game and you suck!" about me disliking those characters.

When a character notices that GFs robbed him of all his childhood memories, and he keeps using them, still, without even BOTHERING to think back to what it did to him, he's a pretty damn shallow character.
If a character just suddenly notices he loves someone who he has been ragging on as being CRAP the entire time, just because they were abducted, that's a really shallow turn in story, and I pity everyone who "falls in love" that way.

There are many things wrong with FF8, and pointing them out does make NO ONE an elitist.

It doesn't work that way.

I do have a comment for Remilia Scarlet however. You said Squall was someone who generally hated people, but still was a nice guy. (Well in a nutshell anyway) I could have sworn I remember him saying that the reason he had withdrawn into himself was because he was afraid of being hurt by people, and at the same time afraid of hurting others. So he enclosed himself in a shell.


I don't know what the writers were thinking with that, either. Because WITH his shut in attitude, he did nothing BUT hurt everyone around him. Especially when it came to Quistis and Rinoa. He's so overangsting himself that he doesn't even notice how little sense anything he does makes.

Well that's the thing with people. They make mistakes. The whole fact that what Squall was doing WAS a mistake, is a large part of what Rinoa helped 'snap him out of'

I have my own theory as to the GF thing. But yeah, I can see why people have a problem with that part.

So anyway, to put an end to this. Nothing we say we'll change each other's minds. So I think we should probably just drop it and go on to other things.

See, that's the main problem I have with Squall. He never DID admit to being wrong.

There's another game that deals with a shut in bunghole as the main character, and that's Tales of the Abyss.
Luke does something horribly wrong, and hugs up really badly, and EVERYONE in the party gives him jive for it, to the point of abandonning it.

He eventually realizes what he did, and WORKS for his forgivenes and redeption.

I could forgive Squall a lot more, if he had done anything like that, but he just suddenly did a character 180 and everyone was supposed to accept it.

I agree that no one's gonna change anyone's mind, like every debate on the internet, it's pointless.

He didn't have to, because he did better than that. He finally let his friends in, said thanks, and went on to becoming a good leader because he finally came to grips with the idea that it's not all about him, and that other people matter.

VIII is easily my favourite of the series thus far (although haven't been able to play anything from the PS2 onwards. I'd really like to give XII a shot). Much better gameplay than most.

I also appreciated its much more subtle, nuanced story. Only thing that really bugged me, not so much the GF memory subplot itself, but just the heavy-handed way it was delivered. Needed a few more hints for the characters to catch onto before Irvine dropped the bomb. His confession kinda came out of nowhere.
