Scars are almost always cool. Where did you get it from (& if the story's lame, make something up! :P)?

I hate how the FFTA2 system is now only relevant to YOU and has no bearing what-so-ever on the enemies...but at least they made it matter less when you break them, I guess (just extra items & w/e special judge power you chose prior)...

Surgery; had to have it on my shoulder 'cause it kept dislocating(how it got dislocated in the first place... that's another story. :lol:).

I've been hearing a lot of negative comments regarding FFTA2, particularly in the law system, since it's stuck on a specific ruling for each mission rather than being able to walk around until it's changed as you see fit (ala FFTA1). That's pretty much why I'm avoiding it, plus I still haven't finished the first game (or FFT for that matter).

The whole "Set Law" aspect of FFA2 simply requires the player to USE their intellect and skill.  It encourages active intelligence and strategy.

Meh... trust me, if you want to play a FFT game that requires "active intelligence and strategy" this isn't it; the game basically forces artificial limitations to provide difficulty(that's not ingenuity─that's laziness.) where game mechanics and power balancing should be doing the job. Btw, have you played the FFT 1.3 patch─it's brutal. http://www.ffhacktics.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=449

I think it's still a game worth playing/getting...I haven't noticed much story-wise that connects it to FFTA (which I haven't finished either)...The Law/Judge system is only a small part of it and, while annoying, doesn't really change my view of the game being good.

Is there a Tactics Ogre game on DS yet? That's what needs to happen...The Knight of Lodis on GBA is awesome!

If they did an enhanced remake package of a bundled KoL and LUCT(Let Us Cling Together), I'd buy it as LUCT is a direct sequel to KoL. Namely polish the graphics/audio of KoL and add the features of KoL to LUCT(summons, link-capabilities, etc.).

Damn you Texas! I definitely have a pretty good farmer's tan now. I should go to the pool or something and even it out...

Texas is indeed Hell on Earth. Everyone there owns a gun, it's hot as Hades, President Bush was manufactured there, and even Smog first formed in that state.


Okay, I lied about the Smog, but I needed something to top it off. I was on a roll.

FFIVDS omitted the optional scene where you get yelled at for not following the script.

Maybe someone just lied to me at some point or I'm getting confused with another game, but I could've sworn if you say "No" to the Fabul king's request for help several times, a FFIV developer walks in and yells at you for not following the script.

I'm going to kill that fucking bastard.

Censored names and Arnold's last name, I never knew his name was Arnold.

Quote
Hello, this is *****'s (Sally) father, I remember talking to you after your friend killed himself. You and your other friends, ******** (Jill) and ***** (Alice) were there as well. I've come to find out that those two are together, as in, a homosexual relationship. My family is clearly against that lifestyle, so I'm going to ask you to tell your two "friends" to stay away from my daughter. In fact, i want you to stay away as well, the three of you have the chance of infecting my poor child with your sickening ways.

Thank You very, much

Arnold ***********

What kind of brings a smile to my face, despite what he has just said is something I posted here that he has no idea about, and if he did, I'd be fucking dead.

Let's go back in time shall we?

A month or so ago, there was this girl, Sally who was doing a play with me. It was raining, so I offered her a ride in my car. Long story short, we fucked. In my car.

Fuck you Arnold, or should I say, I FUCKED YOUR DAUGHTER ALREADY! HOW SWEET AND PURE DO YOU THINK SHE IS NOW!?
