They're already pulling a bunch of crap against it, and by pulling a bunch of crap I mean complaining at a 25 thread per minute ratio.

The only bad thing is that they blocked /r9k/, a quality board, along with /b/. I can understand if they blocked the entire website, but really if they just blocked /b/ it'd be more so helpful to people new to the Chans then harmful. But they took /r9k/ with it, and that just won't do.

It's elementary.

It really reminds me of Yoshitaka Amano, and that's a good thing.

Awesome work Ema.

Honestly, Chrono Trigger does have its share of flaws, coming from a huge fan of the entire series. I can understand why someone wouldn't like it.

I haven't seen a thread like this around here, so i thought I'd go ahead and make one. Here's the place to talk about books you've read, books your reading, recommendations, reviews, all that stuff.

A few books I've just finished are;

Lullaby by Chuck Palahnuik.  This is the guy who wrote Fight Club, and outside of the realm of that book I'd never really read any of his work up until recently and I really regret it. Lullaby focuses around a poem called the "Culling Song", that when recited, kills the listener. The poem is published into a book of poems from around the world for children, and learning of this, a newspaper reporter, an underhanded real-estate saleswoman, a pseudo-hippie and her eco-terrorist boyfriend set out to destroy all copies of the book nationwide. After reading some of his other works, it's easy to see Palahnuik thrives off of the shock factor, more noticeable in his books Choke and Snuff, but still delivers a solid storytelling experience that's sure to keep pages turning. If you're into darkly comedic horror, this is right up your alley.

Call me a slowpoke, but I recently got through Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card after putting it off for years, and I have to say I can see why it's so highly acclaimed. Besides the protagonist being a bit of a Mary Sue, I fell in love with the book, and ended up finishing it in one sitting. If you haven't read this book, do so now.

After finishing Game, I went on to read its sequel, Speaker for the Dead, which honestly I found a little disappointing, but a good read nonetheless. The protagonist went from the slight Mary Sue in the first book to a huge, almost "perfect" fanfiction like character in this one, but oddly enough I still found myself hooked. I found it a little tough to wade through the beginning, because the book throws you into unfamiliar territory with unfamiliar characters and terminology you know nothing about (a pet peeve of mine, but maybe some others dig that kind of stuff), but it quickly grew on me and ended up being almost as memorable and entertaining as its predecessor.

As of now, I'm currently reading The Jungle by Upton Sinclair, by recommendation of my older brother. Being the only connection I had to Sinclair's work beforehand the movie Let There Be Blood, which I found fantastic, I was excited to get to see the actual literary work of the guy behind it. I'm not too far in, but I found the introduction pretty nice, a little over-descriptive at points but I was told it's with good purpose, so maybe I just have to keep at it.

With all that said and done, what's everyone else reading currently?

Robotnik already had an insult nickname, Robuttnik.

Saying Eggman makes me feel like one of those eleven year-old "ORIGINAL CHARACTER DO NOT STEAL" Sonic fans.

I didn't bother to get Ultima. I got the Ragnarok Sword for the sole purpose of getting the Illumina, which I gave to Locke, who with Genji Gloves had a Wing edge (changed to Excalibur before Kefka) and The Offering equipped.

Easily 3 times the damage of Ultima.

What about the Dragon's Den that you can go to after you kill Kefka?

That's only in FFVI Advance, I played the original.

I leveled everyone to like level 60 except Strago and Umaro, because they're big dummyheads. Blew through Kefka's Tower pretty easily. Also, God Kefka only has 60K HP, it's like he really wanted to die.

I just finished FFVI for the first time. It had an awesome ending, but, man, was I over-prepared and disappointed for the final dungeon throughout.
