  1. Moro viimekerrasta on muutama vuosi!

  2. This is one thing that I won't understand. If someone thinks one game is good, why would they cheat and ruin it? Instead of playing it as it should and have been designed to play and become good at it at the same time. But I do understand if one has already accomplished everything in the game and uses cheats and hacks to find easter eggs and try limits of the game. (of course, only when talking about single player game)
  3. Sup. And welcome to our ranks. It's been quite quiet a while, but hopefully we get something to talk about soon.
  4. Yeah it's awesome to finally meet someone else who's into such series. I tell all my buddies about kaiji and akagi, but they're not really interested in it (never even bothered to try it TAT) but those series are one of my utmost favorite anime. They're in my Top list. The last episode to Kaiji, I watched it with my parents. We all thought it was epicly awesome. 100% Perfect end...

  5. Yeah, I have watched Akagi too. :D (I have to finish it someday though) Oh, and last Kaiji episode was great (as always). How did you liked the ending? It is truly great seeing another Kaiji/Akagi fan. So, nice to meet you. :3

  6. No prob ;D I find it in poor taste to give spoilers. Hope you enjoy the series <3 And while you're at it, try Akagi. Also by the same artist. It's about a really young and intelligent gambling shogi player. :3 Enjoy <3

  7. Hah... : D Dunno...

  8. Mayhaps I have been known to whip out Taokaka every now and again... What gave it away? :P

  9. Hi

    Greetings and welcome to the forum and to the guild too~
  10. Yeah, but I wonder if it'll be troublesome to get everyone in same server... Unless Revast says: "Go make character to server X if you want to play with us".
  11. Yeah, I can't wait for it either. x3
  12. Umm... okay... welcome again? I wish I could turn into A.I. when I get too old to do stuff and start forgetting things. But then again, I don't know. ┐('~`;)┌ Living too many years could be boring too. Specially if you couldn't physically do anything,
  13. Hi and welcome~ There are many people here from many different foreing countries, but never heard anyone wanting to teach that language here. :/ I think best solution is to take some classes or learn it from some website, but for me, I'm too lazy to study myself ^^' I need someone to force me to study. (Yea, I really need to get away from that kind of "attitude")
  14. It actually depends. In mmo games I'm usually tactical, except if it's too easy, I'll just be aggressive. In normal games I'm usually aggressive since it always works out pretty good. Except Demon's souls punched me in the face and said:"that won't work here anymore" And I'm glad it didn't. In real life I'm fully defensive, try to save my stamina and look for best chances to attack. (martial arts doods, I'm not street brawler )
