  1. Yoooooooooo!! I had a moment of freetime playing FFXIV, went through my email deleting things and I saw THIS. Maaaaaaan so many feels and not all of them are good mind you. I was hoping for a B2P or sub model, but as long as the Cash shop is primarily cosmetics and nothing that would break the game I'll be fine with this. SUP B&S DOJO, TIME TO ROCK!!!
  2. "I had an Artisan create posters emblazoned with your noble image. It's milord in a bold pose-naked save a scale in one hand and a sword in the other. And at your feet I scrawled our new Model: "Chrom Wants You!", I had them pinned inside each and every tent" >XD

  3. I feel so bad getting Kid Icarus a year after release, all dem free weapon gems. Yet my new favorite pastime is Light vs. Dark, I seem to lose track of time playing matches

  4. Hey Teen Titans GO is horrible adventure wise, especially when compared to the original, but comedy wise it's not bad, SPOILER ALERT: Cyborg laughing at BBs job gave me an ulcer

    1. CryX4

      CryX4

      I miss the original Teen Titans, I wanted to relive all my pre-teen angst.

  5. Okay I see what happened, I thought that he inherits two skills from the parents when in fact he just inherits one each, thanks, now I might have to use Gamefaqs though, a lot of things I want to ask sound like major spoilers when spoken :embarrassed:
  6. Just start reading and making threads in the off topic to keep yourself busy. Now........ what anime is your sig from? :misdoubt: (both sigs)
  7. *sigh* I need to get back into school, this stupid part-time job I have is going to give me a stroke

  8. Oh that's nice to know, so the father and mother pass down set classes to their children. But wait, why did said child in the spoiler only get 1 skill from his father and 2 from his mother when I had 5 skills set on the father?
  9. I'm thinking if the NA/Eu servers had costume contests? Anyway to Inuyasha's kimono? No, hell no, it's just one color and way too bland TO Sesshomaru's? OH GOD YES!!!! PLEASE GOD YES!!! I really should go watch the "Final Mix" since they finally dubbed them, but oh so lazy and what channel you know that still airs Inuyasha? Didn't Adult Swim/Toonami stop airi- oh I forgot they have it at like 4 in the morning, unless they stopped, I haven't watched cable TV in close to a year now
  10. Ever wonder what would happen if the Gods returned from their immortal realm to screw with humanity and to determine the next God of Gods in their own twisted game of thrones? Well some interesting webcomic details just that, I decided I wanted to share this comic since it earned my respect, the writer only has the first chapter done, he does updates every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday but tbh, he does an amazing job putting in flash gifs, and pretty good artwork into one bundle. The story starts off a little meh but towards the end of the chapter it gets GOOD. So take some time off your youtube cat videos and do a little reading Story of Gods ^She'll be glad you did :big_smile: (oh btw you'll want to go to view all pages and start from page one, remember your page number if you take a break or something)
  11. You guys are being rather harsh aren't you? Some people will like it, some won't. And it is true you might've not given the game a full chance being that it's in beta and all. Give it a couple phases, keep trying it and after the final release, then state your negative opinion of it. Also although I do enjoy getting snippets of how it turned out thanks to your ignorance of the ToS it might be best for you to keep the info somewhat silent, since this forum is public to anyone who comes across it, I'm guessing a search engine would lead a few strays here when people are trying to find info on FFXIV's transformation, and getting team members of a major corporation and video game franchise here might spell slight disaster. Could I ask for a privacy lock on this topic so only people who have accounts here can see it?
  12. BUT THAT WOULD BE SO OP!!! :sob: Anyway is there a way to determine what skills children inherit? And do the classes the parents have effect the classes the child can turn into?
  13. Methinks he like Lolis, and lack of revealing loli things upsets him Anyway I think we'll get everything that 7 waves introduced along with the Pretty Ice stages, anything past that we'll have to wait on. If you look at the BnS site for NA, you'll see various wallpapers and artworks depicting the Frost zones. The whole 7 waves thing felt more like a "we forgot these things earlier so we're doing them in updates" kind of thing so I feel as though the EU and NA servers should just start out with them
  14. I have a skills question, can Lethality stack with Astra? I see that Crits can stack with both skills and that some skills stack with others. Interested cause if Astra activates that means Lethality has a higher chance of procing during all 5 hits :feel_good:
  15. I never finished the first Jak and Dexter but maybe it was because I was like, 9 didn't know controls very well, had a low comedy understanding at the time and was game jumping to find a favorite all the time. But I love Rachet and Clank just hope this mean they are continuing the franchise, after a crack in time I got worried that it would end since they explained the histories of both characters After watching the link: I WANT!!! :adore: It really just looks like a Pixar film but better cause of Rachet and Clank humor I'll be looking forward to this in the 2015 year (more then BnS after the way they keep pushing back the western release.)
