      For the trip to Otakon in terms of spending funds.

      I'll need to plan it out wisely.

      And hope that things work out for me to get 'more' cash.

      Too bad it's the only place I have internet access at the moment.

      The fucking cable people, who will be providing our internet and television, aren't going to be installing until tuesday, thanks to the legal holiday being MONDAY.

      So for now, I'm without interwebs... Awesome.

      I'm in Pikeville, FINALLY, and enjoying it quite well. Really, it is beautiful here...

      Well that's it, I will be on sometime around tuesday... I'll have live back on then and BlazBlue shipped yesterday, along with The Legendary Starfy. Should be here... Tomorrow I'd bet.

      I've been watching this via my 360 instant cue and honestly, it's actually entertaining. From times of complete confusion due to the unsubtitled kanji or the genuinely amusing humor, it's almost like somewhat of a nice balance between Nurse Witch Komugi (sans the otaku based humor) and Azumanga Daioh.

      Of course, Hilary Haag voicing the lead, Rebecca Minamoto, is a perk for me. I like practically ANYTHING she's in, the very few other animes she's actually in.

      The characters themselves actually are diverse enough to make it from being too boring or too inexpicable and stupid. The main cast of class 1-C is very entertaining, from the insanely hyper active but incredibly stupid Himeko (who for me, tends to make any scene she's in enjoyable) to the fairly neutral but easily annoyed Miyako. The other classes are also entertaining, especially the cast of students under the guidance of an alcoholic professor, with the students themselves all 'appearing' normal, but having their spur of the moment oddities.

      I can't recommend buying this but for anyone with the netflix instant cue as well or can rent it from somewhere, I'd check it out... If you have nothing else to watch. It is by no means the best thing out there, but it is at least watchable and amusing.

      I managed to get by for the whole day without ending up having to do any work. Played 1 v 100 live, then went to church, ate dinner and then watched True Blood, very good episode tonight BTW.

      I ALSO finally rejoined Netflix and activated it through XBL. I'm entered for the weekly drawing now. :D

      I'm rather pleased with the offerings through the instant queue. To be specific, I found the following faves:
      -Air TV
      -Nurse Witch Komugi
      -FMA: Conquerer of Shambala

      To comment on Air TV, I'm finding the main characters dub choices somewhat less... annoyingly. I'm still disliking of Monica Rial's Misuzu, but I'm growing on Vic Mignona's Yukito. I've always loved Luci Christen's performance of course, I said from the get go she was the best choice.

      Anyways, that's about it... Oh! And I'll have the house to myself all day tomorrow. Still planning to pick up Point Lookout and Sorry! Sliders via XBLA, got a deposit slip for when the check comes in tomorrow... Hopefully.

      Is when I will be seeing Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen with my friends...

      Our... last outing together. ._.

      *sigh* I'm... glad to be moving and getting out of this town but... I'm gonna miss the eay access to my friends... Big time.

      Anyways, we're gonna go see it on the south side tomorrow at a theater there and maybe hang out around the area afterwards since the movie would literally let out in the MIDDLE of rush hour.

      And then... Well, I get to see one friend again in July for Otakon but that's 'literally' it. Then it'll be another 6 months to a year before I do anything 'fun' with them again, sans maybe some stuff via WoW or over XBL once the one friend I'm attending Otakon with gets a new 360.

      So, that's about it. Most of the stuff around the house is set thankfully. The dining room and living room have been established and monday everything will be moved into position. Then on wednesday we'll leave.

      I'll miss pittsburgh somewhat but... Not that much.

      Eve of the First Day: 169 Hours Remain.

      I both love and hate it. Why?

      Well, it's more I just hate the wiki page. I hate it because now it has me SO DAMN EXCITED for the movie.

      I love it because the plot is much more developed than anything I had anticipated. I can guarantee that anyone who saw the first will find the second plot superior.

      Spoil it or don't. But it ALSO added a little extra surprise I wasn't expecting.

      Here's hopes to Unicron in the third film.

      A staff member who made AIR into a well working TV anime...

      Is going to be at Otakon...

      This... is unbelievable. I have to meet and thank this man.

      Granted, I understand the original creators of AIR are the Key staff, primarily Jun Maeda but...

      IT's just amazing, never in a million years would I have EVER imagined an opportunity to meet ANYONE associated with the staff of ANYTHING connected to AIR. I HAVE to get him to sign the artbook I have for the TV series.

      He's also responsible for work on Haruhi Suzumiya and Lucky Star as well. But still... IT's just mindblowing.

      Granted it's not the writer, director or head animator, he's still... What I want to meet.

      And I'll give my thanks for what he did for Lucky Star, easily my second... yeah, second favorite anime of all time. Clannad following in third.

      Doesn't matter if you believe me or not since its the words of Microsoft from Peter Moore I believe when I read about the cooling system for 360. The reason I sold 360 was not because games were boring its because exchanging it 5 times tells me there's a shit load of problems with the 360, plus I didn't really have a lot of time to play it and didn't want to keep paying for LIVE when I know that I won't play it. Plus, any games on the 360 is gonna be the PC anyway. Maybe not the J-RPGs but meh, I got a PS3 for that. Valkyria Chronicles and FF13 yum yum!

      And believe me I am the least picky person when it comes to games, if its fun I play it.

      Either way its not my Xbox 360 so do what you guys want with it. Waste money on a cooler or go to wherever store he bought it with warranty and exchange for a brand new working one. I've exchanged 5 360s I think I know most of the problems that goes on a 360. And overheating is one of the common ones, it could be due to the failure of the fan in the 360 because my first 360 one of the fans blew and it actually the xbox 360 shell was unaligned so this was manufacturers fault for not assembling it properly and malfunctioning parts. If one fan there is not working, you'll have overheating problems no doubt.

      But like I said, if you must get one, get any of the vertical stand ones.

      Didn't Square Enix say they are gonna work on a new FF MMO or something?

    • Shinigami28

      11 years ago

      Yeah, FFXI power level costs a lot. Gil is also quite expensive. 1 million costs $20. 1-75 power level costs $650. This probably doesn't even include getting you supporting jobs.

      I've seen a bit of the first season (maybe two episodes) but they really didn't interest me that much. Most shows with mecha in them have that effect on me.

      Hey dude

      I realise you don't know me but we both know BlueKudzu. She hasn't been on in two weeks and her last journal seemed bit ominous, I'm starting to worry about her a bit. Have you heard from her by any chance?

      11 years ago

      ah, that explains quit a bit. I thought i remembered hearing about a viral marketing, but I didn't know it was all that big of a thing. We kinda just went to see it because Attack of the Show told us to.

      But the biggest thing for me wasn't all the shaking, but whenever the camera turned when I didn't expect it to.
      I can play video games and read on the curviest, bumpiest roads I've ever seen, with the craziest driver I know, and not even be remotely affected.
      Yeah, it's probably just that I couldn't predict the movements.

    • Mendaa

      I think it's pointless, because of the way they ended the first season. There's really not a way for them to visit Kyou's path or Tomoyo's path, and I don't think they'd be able to drag out the actual After Story to a full length series. And as much as I liked Nagisa, I was annoyed enough as it is with them ending the series with that confession, when it was completely unnecessary (I felt the scene preceding it would have made a very powerful ending). If it had been an OVA, maybe it would have been alright. Maybe.

      Potentially. Let's see how much money I have left over after taxes. :p

      We could always try and figure out the time lapse interval and multiply it by the number of minutes it actually took. I only say 5 hours because that's what he posted at the end of the vid.

      You get riolu when you go to canalave city, a guy with a boat takes you to iron island where you go through one of those team things, so get ready to level. at the end he gives you a riolu egg.
      you have to get surf before you can get there, I think that town has the sixth gem.

    • BlackChocobo

      11 years ago

      It took me 8 days to beat the game, and I played it a lot. I really wish the game would tell me how many hours that took.

      The legendary problem keeps getting bigger, 5 in 1st gen, 6 in 2nd, 10 in 3rd, and 15 in 4th, diving us a grand total of 36 legends to worry about. Luckily only about half of them are used on just about every annoying little kid's team.

      The new physical/special split changes things a great deal. It makes you have to think about the advantages and disadvantages of having the move more for in game play, although sometimes there is really no question. The most important thing it does, for me anyway, is fix some of my favorite pokes. Namely Gyarados and Sneasle, they both had massive attack stats, but had special attack types, and thus were useless.

      A quick tip for the level grinding, there are points in the game where you team up with another trainer to get through an area. That is the best time to do it, because you always fight 2 pokemon at once ant the other trainer completely heals you after every fight.

      Yeah, I kinda just go around looking for ssbb characters as avatars, and that seemed to be a journal I had actual input for.

      I've never really had anyone to play smash with, so I think the wifi is pretty good for that, though it is a little laggy.
      When I made the decision of which game to get, I settled on a solid BOTH, so I should be able to help you.
      Once again that decision was based on the fact that I have nobody to play with, but it goes online.

      I do have 110 dollars in my wallet so I will probably import DJ MAX games. Is it good? Like super good? I've only heard one song on DJ MAX right now and its Kaze ni Onegai by Forte Escape. That song in both DJ MAX?

      Well anyway, is Disgaea any good?

    • Shinigami28

      11 years ago

      Is Disgaea for PSP good? That's probably one I wanna try if its released in NA.

      I probably will get DJ MAX and Patapon but doesn't UMD have region protection?

      lol I just wanna buy some spells. I made a few gil from fishing and managed to get some better looking armor.

      The quest "Hat in Hand" is messed up. I talked to all the npc that gives a unique dialog when you show off the hat, but when I turn it in the guy only gave me 50gil instead of 300gil with a hat. And when I want to repeat it, I talked to the npcs again but then this time, he says that he isn't a charity and didn't give me any gil.

      OK I got it to patch while I was in the shower this morning. I made a Mithra WHM on Cerberus. What's the best way to get XP and Gil in Windurst? And its kind of gay how I can't minimize my game to check ffxi.allakhazam.com/ for a little bit of help.

    • Shinigami28

      11 years ago

      Well it went further than usual when I was updating around midnight. I never had this problem when I was updating it for the 360. Some people say that it could be because there are too many people downloading and it can cause some people to drop or something.

      Damn it, I wish they had a .exe you can run to patch it instead of having to use Playonline Viewer to patch it. I'll just keep on trying until it works I guess.

      I'm currently installing all the expansions for FFXI right now. For some reason when I try to update my FFXI, when its downloading the files it says there is something wrong with D:/4_.dat or something along those lines. Do you think I have to reinstall FFXI?

My friends are Horde on Bleeding Hollow, I've got a 20 Undead warrior, 14 BE paladin, and 10 BE rogue, probably going to stick with the paladin. I can get you into their guild if you'd like as well, if you think you'll get to endgame, they've got 2 teams mostly geared for Kara right now from what I understand.

      I'll get on AIM once I've got my laptop up and running, just IM me if you're on. I'm generally set as away but a lot of the time I'm there anyway.
