Re: FINAL FANTASY ONLINE 2-2 Not shit edition

Oh, I guess that means my character is updated. The differences seem pretty subtle. This'll be my first time playing on the date an FFXIV expansion comes out. I heard conflicting reports about the best place to log in, since there were concerns that certain cities or even the inn rooms might become ...

Re: What a Tease

21 years ago, I was fascinated by this trailer. The soundtrack, the contrasting visuals, the bizarre choices about what to depict: I have not stopped being fascinated by this trailer. It still gets me, even after doubling my age.

Re: Hey [%target] Whatcha Playin'?

I'm also doing the Animal Well business. I've been playing for a couple of hours, and while I picked up a couple of useful tools, I only just got my first traversal ability, and it is wild.

Not a fan of these herons.

Re: HOW WAS YOUR DAY

Casablanca Mediterranean Grill in Philadelphia. Highly rated; moderate prices. In the Google Maps photo, I was seated at the second-closest table on the right. They were also part Mediterranean grocery store, and if the patrons at the other tables were any indication, there was apparently some arran...

Re: HOW WAS YOUR DAY

I am currently eating dinner at a restaurant. I couldn't figure out how drinks work; they weren't listed on the menu. They also didn't come with my meal, and the waiter didn't ask me about the subject, so now I'm 3/4ths of the way through my meal with no drink, and at this point I don't want to admi...

Re: #Tell Friday

Is it still April 25 where you are? If so, you can observe an important holiday: on this day in 2011, in a game of vampires vs werewolves, the wolves banded together with me and Niku to lynch the last vampire, triggering their victory condition, but Niku survived as the weretiger, winning the game a...

There is a person named Jason Love who posted on this website under the username "Newbie" who had a birthday on March 29, yes. I am sure that, if he were here, that person would appreciate the birthday affirmation. However! I am something different. At some impossible-to-define moment, I b...

Re: HOW WAS YOUR DAY

I got to play real life jokeboat of my own last week (in that I was on a cruise and there were comedians on board). Since my other forum has integrated image hosting, I posted semi-daily update posts in a thread over there . I never had much interest in cruising in the first place, much less after s...

Re: Hey [%target] Whatcha Playin'?

Whenever you do, make sure you play on the hardest difficulty! Both of VanillaWare's most recent games have novel approaches to RTS/Tower defense combat, and they're both too easy on most of the difficulty settings.

Re: Hey [%target] Whatcha Playin'?

Considering how amazing 13 Sentinels was, I felt like I had to get VanillaWare's next game no questions asked, so I picked up Unicorn Overlord. This seems like the narrative/gameplay inverse of 13 Sentinels: the story's the most generic fantasy war storyline you could imagine, but it's executed well...

Re: Ol' shoot 'em in the leg

Unfortunately, in a two-party system, the only way to effectively communicate to your party that you are dissatisfied with their choices is to make them believe you might not vote for them. You might still actually vote for them, but it's critical that they believe that they've lost your vote. Other...

Re: Final fucking fantasy 22 3/4

Today, I finally finished Endwalker , second credits sequence included. Shadowbringers may exceed it for hard-hitting emotional moments—I cannot handle the scene in which you bring Ardbert's crystal to Seto without sobbing—but overall, Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker is my "most satisfying&quo...

I used to be really enamored with the guy. So much so that I once sent him an email that prompted him to email me back one of his unpublished novels. It was alright.

Re: Animotion and Car Tunes

As somebody who never read the original, I enjoyed the parts of Scott Pilgrim Takes Off that paired up characters who didn't interact much in the film. It was nice to see characters like Knives transcend the roles they initially occupied. While the show does "cute" and "animated spect...

Re: "Coronavirus" is the category, dangit. (COVID-19 thread)

We were scheduled to get the booster on Friday at CVS since we're going to a meetup next month. CVS sent a text saying that the supply has been delayed and rescheduled us for the Saturday after next.
