Chris Martin - September 23 '01- 2:00 Eastern Standard Time|
Guess what? Called the girl today. Asked if she wanted to go out. Her response, "Umm... I was kinda drunk, and I kinda have a boyfriend." Ain't that ducky?
But she wants to be friends. To quote Chris Rock (many wise men named 'Chris', this I know) "Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh! I'm in the friend zone!" The friend zone is a sad place to be.
In other news, I rule at Marvel Vs. Capcom 2. I totally own everyone at this game. Trust me, there's a deliciously naughty feeling of satisfaction when you beat your opponent with what I call "Little Girl Strikeforce Alpha!" Or, B.B. Hood, Tronne Bonne, and Roll. Yes, you read that right, I'll kick your ass with Roll. LUV BUSTAH!
Wolves don't meow. This could be a sinister trick...
When they say 'Domestic Soundtrack', does that mean they're available in
any music store? I want the new FF soundtracks, but I'm pretty sure my
local Specs and Camelot don't have 'em, though I'll have to go check
again. I'm going to assume you can only get them easily off of
tokyopop.com. Which is just the same as buying an import soundtrack, if
cheaper. I hate ordering things online. Most stores don't have a number
for you to call in an order. I refuse to put my CC # on the internet.
Even if they do, I still don't like ordering things. I prefer to -see-
"The following segment of this show may contain mature themes and
language, so if you have any small children in the house, you might want
to kill them"
Basically, Domestic soundtracks are Soundtracks produced for use by US fans. "Domestic" anything means made in -insert your country here- Domestic policy, Domestic beer, (which don't go well together). Domestic really means something close to "home" (Domestic Abuse), but the word is most often used on a national scale. Yes these CD's are for sale in the US. Most general record stores don't carry them. Have a specialty shop for games/anime in your local area? They might carry them. Over the summer, I went to "Joy's Japanimation" in Greensburg, PA.
A lot of people are nervous about using a Credit Card online. However, it's actually pretty safe. Just as many people will see your # if you take it out in a regular store. And if you go to a place that you know you can trust, you can feel safe. I've recieved nothing but good service from Gamemusic.com in the past, for example. They'll probably have what you're looking for. Even if you don't like it, it might just be the only way you can acquire one of these tracks...
I'd like to see someone get hit by a bus. Mean? Yes, but damnit, that would be cool.
I have things to ask/say. I hope it helps to fill that void of letters.
There is a such thing as a hardcore gamer. It's just a very rare
occurrence. People who can play DDR in front of a large crowd of people
(doing poorly or making every correct move) without being embarrassed, is
one example(it's harder than you might think). Another might be someone who
takes the time and effort to master all materias in FF7 without using the
W-item duplication trick and feeding 99 elixirs to a bunch of magic pots. I
guess the hardcore type is in the eye of the beholder. Too many gamers
today proclaim themselves as such. From what I've experienced, if one calls
themselves a hardcore gamer, then one usually isn't. Sooooo, if anyone says
they are hardcore, smack them and tell them to play through Strikers 1945 on
This question is in regard to Xenosaga/Xenogears in general. As has been
stated numerous times, Monolithsoft is going to try to create six games to
go with the timeline of the Xenogears universe. This also includes the
"remake" of Episode V(otherwise known as Xenogears, duh ^_^). How do you
think they are going to handle this? Do you think they will actually remake
Xenogears for the PS2/GC, possible recreating the sprites, and maybe even
redubbing the English voice actors?(If they turn the sprites into polygons,
I'll bury my copies of the rest of the timeline....I swear), or do you think
they'll just pull a SquareSoft and just make all the prerendered scenes into
realtime ones? Do you think the story will change? What about the dialog?
WILL THEY ACTUALLY MAKE CHU-CHU A VIABLE CHARACTER?! *ahem*
1. Is there a Q&A host war going on that I've missed? Do you have your own
set of readers that only worshi.., er, write in to you? ;)
2. A question about Square and SquareSoft. I know that one of those names
is the collective name of the programming teams, and one is the publishing
arm of the company. Which is which?
Well, I think I'm done rambling. Thanks in advance for printing this, if
Xero "I like pretzels!" Zohar
PS: When my spell checker comes to PS2, it wants to change it into "pest".
Food for thought. ^__^
Ok, so maybe I was a tad harsh on the whole "Hardcore" gamer bit, but that kind of elitism simply nauseates me. Onward!
Is Xenogears popular enough to support six titles? I guess it all depends on how well "Xenosaga" works out. I smell a simple repackaging for Xenogears, while what I would like is a complete rebuild. Xenogears is a good game, but it looks like something someone put together the night before it was due. Plotlines started and left unresolved, too much text... A lot could be trimmed down and some of the more annoying areas (Like that damn Babel tower) could be fixed. Sadly, 'tis too much to hope for I fear.
No war that I was ever made aware of. People will always have their favorites, though I've yet to see anything like street gangs for because of it. "Dis be Brad turf, yo!"
Squaresoft programs, Square publishes. However, I think that they're simply one and the same "Squaresoft"
I'm a slave to cookies.
You talked to a girl? I can one up that. I danced with a girl last night. A pretty horrifying thing
when you consider that I dance as well as a quadriplegic dog that's blind. Anyway, I have this
dilemma. I recently went on sort of an RPG buying binge by buying Front mission 3, FFT, Alundra,
Valkyrie Profile, FF9, Saiyuki, Wild ARM's and Vandal Hearts (screw textbooks, games are more important
damnit!) and plan on continuing this little binge by getting Hoshigami, DW7 and Arc the Lad Trilogy,
whenever that comes out. I have beaten all the games on my list up to FF9 and am currently working on
Saiyuki. So what I need to know is what to play next. Should I start on Wild ARM's or Vandal Hearts?
And when the new games come out, should I forsake the game I didn't choose so that I can beat the newer
ones, or should I beat the one that I already have? And if I start on the newer ones, which do I play
first, seeing as how the gaming gods have decided to screw with me and release Hoshigami and DW7 on the
same day! I don't know! Help me! Please? I'll give you a cookie . . .
now in new and improved chibi form!
Dancing is a scary sight for me. Maybe I should have just gone to BYU and avoided the whole dance thing altogether. Opression is for my own good...
Sometimes it's a good idea to play the games you have now before buying the new ones. Two reasons. One, you may never go back and finish the old ones, and two, if you play the old ones, then it'll give the new games time to drop in price. Used isn't too bad. I got a bunch of games for $19 that way.
Go for Hoshigami. Looks purty.
