  1. Xenosaga. Not about the battle system at all; rather, the game was all about kicking back and enjoying 45-minute long cutscenes. I guess there were some parts in-between the cutscenes where you like, wandered and stuff, and sometimes fought some monsters. But thankfully those didn't last long and you could get back to watching the cutscenes. lol re: FF13, I agree that if you like the battle system you can get through the game, and if you don't then it's a huge waste of time and/or money. I absolutely HATED Lightning and Hope's story, Snow's was just okay, Fang didn't really HAVE story ...
  2. Diablo II: Lord of Destruction haiku reviews, which can be read individually or in sequence! Also, if read in sequence, you can loop back and start at the beginning again with no interruption! (1) Spend twenty dollars. Try to find legit items; frustrated, you'll bot. (2) Hdins everywhere, duped high runes make every character broken. (3) "At least B-Net's free," you'll think, as you fail to do something productive. (4) Click on some monsters. Wait for one-point-one-three patch. Click the same monsters. (5) You will keep playing, secretly wishing that Bliz will ban you for botting. (6) You've
  3. Honestly, even if the change is nothing more than taking Teleport off of Enigma, the update will be worth the wait. That change alone will make the game 100x more fun.
  4. Oh, I suppose you can remove Psychonauts in the 'want' part for me; wonderful game, btw! Thanks!
  5. OMG Natural Selection is like the most fun mod ever. I must play this! There's nothing quite like setting up a strategy as commander and having your squads communicate and actually pull out a victory through teamwork. It's so satisfying when your RTS units are actual people and trust you enough to follow your orders.
  6. I suggest Beck and Planetes. Beck is a coming-of-age story told through the lens of rock and roll, and is completely awesome. It takes a few episodes to get rolling, but is riveting once it really gets going. Has incredible music to boot. Also, the dub is on par with the original Japanese; they *really* took their time to get the dub right, including all the music. Planetes is a hard sci-fi show about space garbagemen. I know that sounds stupid, but if you like hard sci-fi, you need to see this show. Has some twists you just won't see coming, and is beautifully animated throughout. And f

    Game Fuel

    Is the blue game fuel as good as the red stuff?
  8. 1. The Incredibles 2. Cars 3. WALL-E 4. Ratatouille 5. Toy Story I'll admit, though, that I haven't seen Finding Nemo (I know, what's wrong with me?)
  9. Hey, when the new patch hits I think I may be reinstalling the good ol' D2. Are you guys on East or West, and would you mind if I joined ya?
  10. Ah yes, my bad. I guess M.D. Geist is only FOURTH worst anime ever. My mistake.
  11. I read somewhere that M.D. Geist was officially the worst anime ever produced in the U.S. I have seen it (and a lot of other anime), and I agree with that statement. AVOID
  12. Hey there, love the thread. Think I'll try this out, 'cuz who knows, right? I'm looking for a copy of Intelligent Qube for the PS1. Rare, I know, but this is a community of gamers. Also looking for a copy of Psychonauts for XBOX. Also, for the 'other' category I'm a Magic: the Gathering player, so if anybody has any cards they don't want anymore or want to trade or sell or whatever, let me know.
  13. After taking a week mostly off besides lugging around 50-lbs of books all over campus all week and one light workout, I'm glad to be back working out more regularly again. The week off actually was really nice, too, as it gave some muscles I didn't know needed rest some time off, which really let me hit the weight machines harder than ever this week. Overall I'm really starting to feel good, so that's nice. When I checked in first on pg 4 I weighed 224, which was sort of disappointing as I'd gained like 6 lbs from when I first started. Well, I'm happy to report I'm back down to 218 as of T
  14. You know what really cheeses people like that off? Agree to play them, like it's some huge big thing like, "Ok you can get your revenge" blah blah blah, then completely throw the match. Don't even bother playing hard. Talk to your friend and look away from the screen constantly. Play with one hand. Make them see that if they're gonna be a whiny bitch about playing you, that you aren't even going to dignify it with an effort playing them.
  15. I think I may join in on this business, as I am trying to get a bit more healthy and I do have a goal in mind. My best friend's wedding is upcoming in March and I'd like to look pretty good in a suit for that. For me, that means losing some weight, particularly around my stomach. Current weight: 224 Ideal weight: ??? Height: 5'11" So here's my problem, though. I was born with a clubbed foot, and the surgery to correct it left my leg an inch shorter and my foot much smaller than the other one. Because of this, even with corrective shoe stuff, running is extraordinarily difficult, especia
  16. I beat Marble Madness in like 4 minutes or so ... not world record time or anything, but not bad nonetheless
  17. I don't see how you can say it's not a tournament-viable game ... there are lots of subtle intricacies in strategy and move choice, and certain moves are naturally better than others given their frame data. Just ... like, uh ... every other tournament-viable fighting game out there? Now if you don't like the game, that's your own business, but don't claim the game isn't tournament-worthy because you don't want to spend time playing the game and learning its depth.
  18. I'm usually not into brutal death metal, but a friend made me pick up Austrian Death Machine, a death metal album entirely based around Arnold Schwartzenegger movies and with an Arnie sound-alike. I think the guitarist from As I Lay Dying does most of the musical work in it. I love the album because it is absolutely hilarious.
  19. Hey Vegeta, what does the scouter say his calorie intake per day is?
  20. MitsuR.kelly is awesome; and those online guys don't know what to do against his 3a wakeup game at all. Also, (since I've only played a couple times at friends' houses) is Mitsu's 2k still good?
  21. That may be the catchiest midi ever, but the greatest *name* for a midi ever has to go to that other mix, The Fighting Illini Become Huge Ninja Robots and Take the Championship. Rawk.
  22. Hey, does anybody know any moves that can chain into Astaroth's 28B+G air-grab powerbomb? The only ones I've found so far are the standard 3 ~ 28B+G and the command throw 63214 B+G ~ 28B+G. But the move is just so awesome that I want more ways to do it! Also, anybody know if it's possible to nail The Apprentice with it during his levitating tricks?
  23. Oh noes, SSBB is becoming Counterstrike!
