Console Games / Re: Odin Sphere ~One Reason Why the PS2 Lives~

Well, it came out yesterday, and I played it most of last night. So far it looks great, sounds great and plays great. The combat is well-done. Button mashing gets you killed quickly, but if you think about what you're doing you can kill a huge dragon without taking any hits. Story is kicking ass, too.

I'm the same height and weight as KS, however I can benchpress my body weight fairly easily for some odd reason.

You can probably remove the hard drive and put in a bigger one. I'm going to put a 160gb drive in my PS2 soon.

Artificial computers were probably more restricted by technology than the number of fingers on our hands. I admit I've wanted to try experimenting by raising kids on octal, though.

You can install Steam on a friend's computer, sign in with your account and download the required gcf files, then put them on a flash drive.

Eight is censored?

I used to play Roboforge. My favorite was this ridiculous robot that stood in one place and had massive arms with spinning spikes on them that branched out about 10m away from the chasis.

My name is Lucas, and things that are mine are Lucas', which is pronounced "Lucases".

Problem solved.

TV / Re: ANIME! It's ANIME!
« on: May 15, 2007, 06:53:27 am »
Lets look at this for a moment. They're cartoons. No matter how mature or well animated, they're cartoons. Even deadly serious ones can have their cringeful moments where you can practically taste a budget crash, or when the character suddenly stop acting like themselves, or when ill-placed humor or terrible plot devices/scenes get thrown around. Trigun was good but it was pretty samey, it got a few chuckles out of me, but it was missable. I cant honestly place it a great deal higher than Naruto.

That applies to a lot of live-action shows as well, but you do have a point. There's a ton of crappy/poorly done anime just as there's a ton of crappy/poorly done stuff everywhere else.

I liked the first few plot arcs of Naruto, but I really can't stand anime or manga series that go on for eternity. (And that doesn't just include shonen like Naruto, One Piece or DBZ; Ah! My Goddess has been going on since 1988 and has 34 volumes out.)

On a side note, Hayate no Gotoku is awesome.

Have you ever attended one of Dr. Breen's lectures on the social and economic benefits of alien invasion? Fascinating stuff.

*goes out with friends and camera and tapes various people with fake accents answering simple questions incorrectly*

I'll prove conclusively that Zimbabwe is the nexus of the intellectual elite on this planet.

I suppose it's a good thing that none of the kids themselves were packing heat.
