  1. yeah I'll be there tonight, since for the first time since I was 12 and starting playing FF it's actually within driving distance.
  2. You should be thankful you weren't a member WHEN they shut it down.
  3. Whatever his name is from Crystalis: I played this for the GB. I found this thing called the wizard ring which gave me beams from my sword regardless of health, and the final was a matter of simply repeatedly pressing B from farther away than he could do much effective. Xenosaga II: They just fucked this up so bad. (The entire game, but the final boss was a special fuck up). The "real" final boss had no dramatic music, no final form, no exotic dancing girls, etc. So when you thought you reached the final boss, even with time in between to save, it was a storyline battle. Storyline battles require proper timing or anticipation: For example, FFVII yay, FFX boo. XSII OMGWTF. Xenosaga III: Meh, by the end of the game I had strategy figured out pretty easily, so there wasn't really any effort required for the bosses in the final dungeon. There was this item called "Seven Moons," available at normal shops in the early part of the game, that revived + fully restored HP/EP. So the best method of healing was to let your characters die one at a time, which wasn't hard to do.

  5. Maybe... you're not addicted? (Come to think of it, you do sound a bit angsty.) They are? Games have been around since the 1980s, do the math, video game generation kids are now doctors. Gambling, drinking, pornography... Good for you, your case-study doesn't exactly prove that it's not possible to be addicted to video games.
  6. If you don't think video games are fun then don't play them. Go read a book or get a hobby or go outside or something, not that complicated. Games at which I have actually said "Wow this is fun": Super Mario Bros. 3 Yoshi's Island Mario Kart Double Dash Katamari Damacy We Love Katamari Super Mario RPG Most of my favorite games are RPGs which I wouldn't necessarily call "fun," but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy them. (If it does mean that I don't enjoy them, then I would call them "fun." Please, let's not debate semantics.)
  7. I assume your talking about standard support(css, html, xml, etc.) and not the number of html pages (don't limit yourself to internet webpages) that the browser will work with. If an HTML page doesn't work in Firefox, it's caused by a lazy developer who only checked to see if it worked in IE, or for some reason it's using ActiveX(Which can be bypassed with a Firefox extension) Quite a few of those same developers also force you to use IE to visit their page, because they know it works in that and don't wanna be responsible for making it work in other browsers as well. In fact, it generally takes more work to get something to display properly in IE than it does in FF. FF actually has that problem covered... http://ietab.mozdev.org/
  8. yeah, browser flame wars are dumb... but you are dumb too ...not dumb enough to use FF.

    ...maybe try subtracting 1?

    Sorry to nitpick... Hmm? nZ is isomorphic to Z, but Z/nZ is isomorphic to Z_n. Smallest cardinality an infinite set can have.
  11. I don't understand why everyone is so hard on IE, it's a lot better than you give it credit for, and a lot better than Firefox. You act like a bunch of freelance web designers could actually produce something of higher quality than a corporation with actual, you know, funding.
  12. I don't think the default review, which may or may not have a proper name, gives this piece nearly the credit it deserves. This is one of the most extraordinary pieces I've heard (typically I go for either classical-based or relaxing ones.) Shnabubuluba is one of the demi-gods of this site with his creativity and audacity, this piece deserves praise.
  13. More or less the same here. This becomes my favorite orchestral mix I've heard from OCR.
  14. There aren't enough mixes of this flavor. It really is an excellent piece. Does an exceptionally good job of transitioning from one segment to another. Namely, it starts out with just the basic prelude theme, then uses the cello, viola, or whatever it is (low string instrument, I can't tell) to change the tone of the piece, eventually flowing into a rock ballad. As I said, there aren't enough remixes like this, and out of the ones I've heard this has got to be the best. My only regret is that the mixer closed such a long piece with such a short ending, only a simple arpeggio going down a few octaves, would have done better lengthier. Whoa, great piece though.
  15. Well, if there's something specific you were looking for, you could try more like "piano mix recommendations."
  16. The last boss of FFIX gave me some serious trouble. Took me a while to figure out exactly what pattern to attack/defend in and how to defend against Grand Cross followed by Neutron Ring. I guess that's the price for trying to beat a 4-disc game in 30 hours.
  17. This is a stunning piano arrangement which beautifully retains and adds to the emotion of the original piece. One of the best piano arrangements of video game songs I've heard including the Final Fantasy Piano Collections. Um, can I get the sheet music anywhere?
  18. Typically I'm not an admirer of guitar, but Neil manages to pack a LOT of feeling into those strings. I don't see what the controversy was about.
