    Ask for it, and I mite give it
  1. Decent start. Some nitpicky things. Increase face width, increase eye distance, decrease eye size(slightly), decrease chin size(increase height), decrease distance between lips and nose, reduce brow height relative to eyes, increase cheekbone height relative to eyes(slightly), adjust nose tip angle downward(slightly), reduce nose length, increase nose tip height(slightly).
  2. Ughh.... more of this junk.... Why cant we just have some elegance.... does everything have to look so... slutty? Jesus.... Thanks for putting it up anyway.
  3. Well for non pc games I think "J-stars Victory Vs" looks really awesome, though im partially biased simply cause im happy it has Kenshin and Gintoki in it (<3 Gintama)
  4. I dont suppose you play strategy games? Ive been really enjoying Company of Heroes 2 lately.
  5. Well I'm just plain bored waiting for Blade and Soul period. I was excited for Total War Rome 2 and its a fun game- too bad creative assembly dropped the ball with hardware optimization and I am getting twice the fps on my laptop then I am on my desktop. Also, not sure what Tsuko and Mushi's deal is. Did you do something to them?
  6. So... it seems that massed conscripts are the strongest early game for USSR... does that mean i'm supposed to mass Grenadiers as the Germans?

    1. Tashigi

      Tashigi

      I smell heroes of a certain company.

      Chapter two.

  7. Su-76... fast, cheap with miniscule supply cost... Effective as both mid range artillary and light anti tank support, what's not to like about this vehicle?

    1. Tashigi

      Tashigi

      But does it come with DPS and a Healer?

  8. Ok Company of Heroes 2.... enjoying myself for real....

  9. Nice much appreciated!
  10. Told myself I wasnt going to do it..... yeah little good that did.... Now I have company of heroes 2

  11. Don't worry about CoH folks, CoH 2 is already in beta, although the release got moved again(TBA eww). I must admit, I've been spending a good deal of time brushing up on CoH technical stuff, stats and all that lately, and I can't WAIT to play CoH 2(full retail). Oh that must have been confusing, by CoH i mean Company of Heroes. Yes one of the (if not THE) first direct x 10 game and an RTS no less. Folks put on your fur coats, grab your Mosin Nagants cause Company of Heroes 2 is gonna be epic. That said, once apon a time there was a third person mech shooting game called Exteel. And it was(and still is) one of my favorite non RTS pc games of all time. Some years ago... NCsoft saw that it was not making a profit and so... Exteel was no more... BUT ITS MEMORY STILL LIVES ON!!!! :cry: :cry: Folks, I also played City of Heroes, in fact it was the first mmorpg I ever played. And although I was never more then a casual player, hearing about its shut down.... well, it brought up many emotions. I can both understand and relate to those people posting such hateful comments but I cannot condone it either, and it is no way to get what they want... OH BTW ANYONE WHO WANTS TO PLAY COMPANY OF HEROES(1v1 or 2v2) with me! Send me a message!
  12. Lurkers r scurry.... they watch u when ur sleeping... and know when ur awake....
  13. While I do enjoy shonen, I can't really recommend it to people- a case of being good entertainment but low quality. Otherwise I must highly recommend Spice and wolf Gunslinger girl Shuffle!
  14. Keep in mind only about 60% of the english language is Latin based, the rest being a smattering of other mismatched odds and ends most notably celtic. In contrast the other Latin based languages are based much more heavily on their predecessor language which would make switching between them I imagine easier. I took Spanish for 6 years, Latin for 3 and Japanese for 3 and I have to be honest.... Japanese was the easiest of those. Japanese is inherently an easier language, but I also retained more of it-maybe off topic slightly but interesting nonetheless.
