  1. Man, it is sad that I read the thread title and thought of my actuarial work instead of the board game. I can't tell which is more nerdy.

    The Deth tour

    Gene Hoglan does all the drums for all of the Dethklok music. There was an awesome interview with "Dethklok" where Pickles the Drummer comments on how similar his playing is to Gene Hoglan's...
  3. Actually, I was playing it a lot and never could for about a month or so recently. My friend, one day, told me not to get off the couch until I beat the game, and so I sat through and performed extremely well, beating it with no continues. It was awesome. It's good when you only have like, 2 victims to save per level because you can get it done fast, especially with running shoes.
  4. I know Might and Magic predates FF by a year, but I don't know if even that is the earliest one to use a class system.
  5. I don't mean to show anyone up (ok, maybe I do), but does it count if you went to this year's World Beard and Moustache Championships? I'm the dude on the left.
  6. I actually just found it in my local collectibles store with box and manual in pristine condition. It was in hiding in the back and bottom of a bunch of boxes, and I knew I had to get it. I paid $30 and don't feel guilty in the slightest. This game is possibly one of the best ever made I'd say 20 bucks is a go, dude.
  7. Well I'm alive... I was first surprised that it made international news, but people are talking terrorism (which is bogus) so that makes it more important. Everyone I know in the area is fine, I can only pray for the families of the injured and killed.
  8. Go, and buy the expensive special VIP uber tickets. There is nothing more thrilling than meeting the guys whose talent you've enjoyed for so many years. Then again, when I went to the concert in Chicago last summer (SleazyC was there too), basically everyone from the VGM community was there - Uematsu, Kondo, Yamaoka, Mitsuda, Koshiro, and many others, so it was extremely important to get those tickets. All I can say is Akira Yamaoka in snake-skin pants playing a 7-string guitar. How metal is that
  9. Ya know, on the DVD there is a second ending which actually follows the chemicals plotline. It's very strange, but isn't nearly as impressive as the real ending.
  10. There were several moments that there was original music. You could tell it really didn't feel the same as Yamaoka's, even though it was along the same vein.
  11. Just got back, and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. Stylistically, it looked like the game and felt like a breath of fresh air in the horror genre that is so constricted these days. Though it is based on such a terrific game and doesn't have to start fresh like some concepts, it's better than watching typical Japanese horror movies and their seemingly braindead sequels. Yeah, the story was changed, but for the movie representation it's totally understandable. There aren't many people who walked away from SH1 with a complete understanding of it, and though it wasn't a verbatim portrayal, it was much easier than explaining the flauros and metatron stuff. But because this is a music site, I will say this: The music was clutch. Having Akira Yamaoka on board the production of this movie was the best idea they could have followed through with. Hurrah!
  12. I'm going to see it at midnight tonight and I'm extremely excited.
  13. Ah! I just noticed that as well. Eterea led me to believe his rhyme pattern was ABAB ABAB ABAB CC - though it actually follows the spenserian. Good show!
