If I can tear myself away from Tales of the World I'd be up for some grouping at some point.

Not derail, but my love for the game is diminishing.  Think I am going to try and finish it, but it is a struggle.

Possibly Brave Story or .  Depending on what the xbla title(s) for this week is might pick that up as well.

Nada for me

Jarrod I have Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology from Gamefly and I have been playing quite abot.  Not much story and tons of dungeon crawling.  If you are looking for story then I would avoid this game.  Normally, I wouldn't stick with this, but I like the job system and the crafting is fun

I shall simplify my opinion so as to make my point...

Fantasy = elves
Sci-Fi = lasers


Fixed that for you  Tongue

I do agree that Fantasy or High Fantasy whatever you call it relates to Elves/Dragons and Medieval setting.  Sci-fi is more technology based and is set in the current or futire timeframe

Goodell to Vick stay away from camp.   Good move on the NFL part, imo.  His presence will be a distraction and Animal Rights groups are already giving the NFL , The Falcons and the sponsers fits.  Vick would be noting but a distraction at this point

Hopefully she does, but she's probably made so much money she could retire at this point (I think she's worth a billion or more).  I wonder how long it will take for rumours of a HP related TV series to start flying around.....

Last I heard she was considered wealthier than the Queen of England.

She deserves a break from Harry Potter and if I was her I won't even be thinking about another series.   She alread said she won't allow another writer to pick up with Harry Potter, but I'm if that means another writer could write a book in her universe

Quote from: Kevin Grey on July 23, 2007, 01:42:52 PM


Spoiler for Hiden:
It's kind of semantics but it wasn't so much that there were seven horcruxes but that Vodemort wanted to split his soul into seven parts.  But the final part had to be in Voldemort's body.  So technically I suppose you could say the plan was for six horcruxes.  Kind of interesting- Voldemort's plan was for seven pieces of his soul because seven was such a strong number magically but he inadvertently splits his sould into eight which might have made him weaker than he would have otherwise.

Harry knows that the cup is a likely horcrux in Book 6 (he and Dumbledore discuss it) but neither had a lead on where the cup was.  So when they were wandering around aimlessly in the beginning it was more a question of *where* the hiding places were than what the actual horcrux was.  That's why Harry tells them when they go into Gringott's to be on the lookout for a cup but that it could technically be anything. 

The Hallows subplot is actually essential (this is going to be long):

What Dumbledore doesn't tell Harry, of course, is that he's the final Horcrux and that he will have sacrifice himself to destroy it.  Harry has to *choose* to die in the end and, in the process, basically perform the same sacrifice that his mother did, choosing death in an effort to save someone else (in Harry's case many "someone elses"). 

So he essentially gives Harry clues to the complete opposite of the Horcrux quest- the Hallows.  The whole idea of the Horcrux quest is that Harry must sacrifice himself in the end.  Those who are followers of the Hallows hunt (Xeno Lovegood, Gruwenvald, and even Dumbedore himself to an extent) are seeking to avoid sacrifice and become "Death's Master" as perhaps a method to immortality. 

So for Harry to truly come to terms with self sacrifice he had to have a choice between that and the opposite- becoming so powerful that he could defeat Voldemort without sacrifice.  Dumbledore offers him this choice but in a manner in which he knows that Harry won't be able to act rashly on it.  Especially because the search for the Hallows is, on some level, easier than the search for Horcruxes.   There are only three items- Harry already has one of them (the cloak), suspects he has another (the ring instead the snitch), and knows the location of the last (the wand, either in Dumbledore's tomb or with Voldemort himself later). 

So Dumbedore lays out this quest for Harry with these breadcrumbs, knowing Harry's character enough to understand that given enough time to think on it, Harry will choose the Horcrux hunt and in the end self-sacrifice.  I forgot the quote but I think that was the core of what Dumbledore was saying in his will when he gave him the snitch.   Of course, Dumbledore did put one final level of protection in for Harry since Harry actually couldn't obtain all of the Hallows until he had already made the right choice. 

And that's what Dobby's death essentially does for Harry- while digging his grave, he makes the choice for the Horcruxes over the Hallows and, after seeing the pensieve with Snape's memories, comes to terms with the need to sacrifice himself.  That was the point of that long journey in middle portion of the book (which I personally loved)- it was very much a necessary growing experience for Harry.

Of course, that's what ultimately allows him to live.  Had he gone the route of the Hallows, he might have been able to defeat Voldmort head-on, destroying Voldy's current body but even had Harry destroyed the rest of the Horcruxes, Voldemort would still live inside of Harry.

A really good point from someone on another message board- Voldemort, Dumbledore, and Harry are essentially the three brothers from the Hallows Fairy Tale.  Voldemort seeks the Wand so he can defeat all of his enemies (and in the process brings about his downfall), Dumbledore seeks the ring to bring back the dead (and in the process ends his life as well), but it's Harry who actually meets Death on his own terms.   

J.K. Rowling is a amazing writer.  Btw, i agree with what Kevin wrote in his spoiler

The fact that Vic is unquestionably one of the top 10 "faces" of the NFL makes this more interesting than the other shenanigans that have happened over the last 6 months.

I am one of the very few people I know that likes Vic.  I always have.  And I am a huge proponent of innocent until...

But I tell you, if things work out the way it's looking, my attitude (regarding him) will change pretty quick. 

I like Vick.  I think he is  a wonderful athlete.  Overrated QB?  maybe.. but I don't dislike the guy, but if he dog-fighting in anyway he needs to pay the price
4665  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Michael Vick Indicted on: July 18, 2007, 05:09:45 PM
I'm curious to how Goodell and the Falcons will handle this.  Since Vick isn't a repeat offender I'm sure Goodell will wait for the legal process to work itself out.  If Vick accept s deal I hope Goodell throws the book at him.  Better yet, The Falcons should throw the book at him before Goodell has to do it

and since they say it's pretty much done except for tweaking and small stuff there's almost no reason why it should be delayed!!!  thumbsup

Spoiler for Hiden:
final horcrux

thats right you heard it here first
Spoiler for Hiden:
voldemort wasnt trying to kill him he was ensuring his own immortality - they both go in the finale

thats my guess im sticking to it - and yes im a huge (closet smile) harry potter fan f&@$ing childrens books and i love em

Spoiler for Hiden:
If Harry was a Horcrux then Voldermort would go out of his way to see that Harry would come to no harm.  The Deatheater have been trying to kill Harry since the first book.  Also, Voldermort duels Harry in the Graveyard in Goblet of Fire and tries to use one of the Unforgivables on him.   

My opinion Snape killed Dumbledore cause Dumbledore asked him too.   Malfoy couldn't do it and Dumbledore knew it would come down to it.  Snape is again working against Vldermort at the request of Dumbledore.  Re-read HBP you will see a section where Dumbledore and Snape are arguing and Snape is saying he can't do it.  Your read it here first.

Lastly, Voldermort will die along with Hagrid and one of the Weasleys.  Maybe, one of the Dursleys as well

I downloaded the demo, started it up, didn't want to have to go through a tutorial just to play it, quit and deleted it.

There's a tutorial?  I didn't see one.  I haven't played a JRPG since FF7 and I was able to figure things out pretty easily.

If you talked the the people in the opening area they will give you a overview of the controls.  I skipped most of it as well and figured things out on my own
