I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

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.
