Quote from: "Scott"
putting down 80+ bucks on a GBA doesn't really make sense when you can just put 50 more and get the DS which will play the entire catalog of games anyway.

I think the GBA SP, and Micro, are truly portable, pocket systems, where the DS isn't.  $50 more is one of two extra games, and if you buy a used GBA SP, you save more.

Hmm, I carry my DS in my pocket daily, I guess some people have bigger

DQ8 doesn't seem to have anything new or special compare to other turn based RPG, but for some reason I can't stop playing this game.

So anybody know why we all seem to like DQ8? The story is pretty average, the battle system is simple.

Quote from: "msduncan"
I just went AGAIN to my local EBgames to find out what they know.    Several things:

1.  They are consistent in telling me that they are not expecting the bulk of shipments until January and any before then will be tiny consisting of a couple units at a time.

2.  They have not yet receieved a single shipment since launch day.

3.  They have no news or word on when ANY new shipment will arrive, and nothing has shown up in their computer systems

So is it too early to give up quite yet?   I could very easily release the 200 dollars my wife was going to put toward it and let her spend it as she wishes.         Or I could wait and hope.... and also hope that my contacts here pan out or that I happen upon one as it gets to the loading dock.

Edit to add:   if I give it up now, it will likely be months before I can purchase one.    In fact.... I might then decide to skip it and wait for PS3 at that point.

With the disc scratch problem, overheat power supply, etc. I think maybe it is better to wait for several months until Microsoft released a Service Pack 1 version of XBOX 360.

By then, there'll be more software titles to choose from.

Everyone else wants to catch fish.  My main source of income comes from selling oranges.

Don't forget to raid other people's towns for fruit, plant them in your town, and reap the profits :-)

That's been one of the hardest things so far for me to get used to - without the GBA island present as a way to create hordes of $$, progress is going to be pretty slow on the financial front.  Well, at least until the turnip dealer comes to town...

My town has orange as native fruit, but this morning I got a letter from mom with an apple as a present so I planted it. Hopefully it'll grow into an apple tree soon.

As for finance thing, it seems like I earn money a lot faster compare to the gamecube version but maybe that is because I was still learning to earn money when I played the gamecube version.

So far I made money by selling all the fruits, claim the lost items, checking on the recycle bins, and fishing. Paid Nook in less than one day and now working on earning money to pay for the upgrade.

I simply can`t get enough of this game. I`m liking still, ALOT more on the handheld so far. Just better suited for handheld play, that`s all. BTW, who here adjusts the clock and who here doesn`t? I did with the cube version. But so far here I haven`t. But, I do play alot late at night, and no open store=hard to make money. Still lots to do, but no open store hurts the $$$. And ideas? Between this and MK, the wait for my 360 around Feb should go very fast and easy!

Because this has such a robust online element to it, I think that adjusting the clock is most definitely cheating, and it isn't too fair to the other people you'll connect to who are not doing so.

Right now, Nooks is open from 8am - 11pm.  That's a lot of time.  I suggest you get a dresser which can hold over 90 items, catch fish, collect shells, etc... and then take 5 minutes in the 8am - 11pm time frame to go into Nook's, sell all of the items, and buy what you need.

While I think time travelling is cheating and I'm not doing that both in DS version and gamecube, you don't have to set it to the actual time at your place, you can set it faster a few hours or slower a few hours and leave it at that so you can have daylight in your game if you mostly play late at night.

But it isnt technically a ponzi, is it?  I thought it was somehow tied in to money generated from advertising or something.

Well that is the ultimate question.  The site states that they receive revenue from a number of different programs that do in fact exist.  However, many find it hard to believe that they can afford to payout $127,637.50 every single day of every month.

It's pretty interesting.  My Dads interest peaked after he saw my check.

They can afford to payout $127,637.50 every day as long as there are more than that amount of money coming in from new members or greedy old members that put in more money because they made money with their first $100 gamble.

I'm not suprised that they pay you several hundreds dollars. It is just a bait to try to make you or someone you know invest more of money. Look like it is effective so far since apparently your dad is tempted. Just make sure your dad don't put too much money.

Now if your dad or you invested and get $100K+ check from them then that'll be surprising to me.

As for money generating from ads, etc. I think those are just a cover, they don't make money at all. It is a pyramid scheme, they use money from new investment to pay people that invested.

If they can afford to pay 1% interest per day, they're better off borrowing money from bank or even loan shark. As for clicking and viewing ads business, that is a bull. Those can probably earn you 1% of $100, but impossible to earn you 1% of $1000+ per day.

We had scams like that often here in Indonesia and every single one of them scammers run off with people's money. We had one that pretend to make money from selling jeans which ran for about two years. Then there are several that pretend to be investment in agriculture related business, and one that sell arts.

True that Raydude.  Ever seen this site? :
Funny stuff.

atarashii naginata - 2 dan

My wife wants to learn the Naginata.  Hard weapon to wield from what I'm told...

Yeah, that site is good for laughs. As for the naginata, it really is all about the basics. Basics form the foundation for everything else, from the striking to putting on the armor and sparring. That said, she probably will have an easier time learning and practicing because all the power is derived from hip movements.

One naginata "A-HA" moment is when a senior student was telling me to focus on my footwork and let the hips provide the power. Up until then I was all tense and using mostly armwork to power the strike. Which meant I'd get tired after continuously swinging the thing for like 15 minutes. After I focused on the footwork and hips I felt like I could swing it all day and never get tired. Which was a big bonus for when I put on the armor and sparred - cause then I was able to keep up my attacks and blocks longer.

I thought only girls train in naginata, real men do

I've seen some.  I don't make it a point to watch it because it seems so repetitive to me.

For all the talk (even in this thread) about how varied it is, how many genres it encompasses, I see the same names pop up as favorites over and over again.(example- Cowboy Bebop)  That leads me to believe that QUALITY anime really is rather narrow in scope.

I'm into horror films, stories, novels, etc.   If someone could point me to a good example of horror anime(film or tv series) I'd appreciate it.  I have Vampire Hunter D, sadly that's not horror imo.

You keep hearing of a few same names as favorite because until recently there were only a small percentages of anime  titles that was licensed by US publishers.

Cowboy Bebop is a 1999 released anime. Even 2004-2005 alone, there are tons of anime released in japan.

Top 20 list of anime released in 2004-2005 based on's ranking:

1. Elfen Lied
2. Air TV Series
3. Monster
5. Samurai Champloo
6. Bleach
7. Mai HIME

Absolutely not. Can't stand it.

Echo that!  Not my thing.

Same and I don't like the games either.  It's all the same story and too much melodrama.  I don't even care for the animation because it's usually very choppy.  However, I wish more films with better stories and art techniques would come out because I do like animation quite a bit.  For now the Pixar movies and Iron Giant will have to do.

Agree with Kevin, there are many kind of anime from childish to porn. Many genres, sci-fi, fantasy, action, romance, horror, drama, etc. So they can't all have the same story.

But there are some general type of stories for some sub-genre anime.

Some examples:

harem type anime where one lame boy have several girlfriends. If you watch one then the other will be about 80% the same. Example: Love Hina, Ichigo 100%, most dating games based anime.

fighting anime where in each episode the main character have to meet and fight increasingly challenging opponents. Most famous example: Dragonball.

sport based anime, where the story is about a new guy/girl join a school and then involve in sport competition. Can be about soccer, basketball, some japanese martial arts, tennis, etc.

giant robot anime, there are tons of them with some general storyline.

romance where the main character is a girl/boy that love a popular boy but then there are a childhood friend/best friend character that secretly love the girl. most of them in high school setting.

fantasy anime where a team of people fight supernatural enemies(can be vampires, witches, monsters, ghosts,  etc.).

If you don't like anime because of the story, then you probably can like other genre.

I started watching anime from giant robot but eventually I am bored of them since they're almost the same. Then I moved to other type of story like the fantasy ghost hunter type, action anime, etc. Now it seems like I have the mood for watching romance anime.

That is the best thing I've seen thus far this month.

On topic:

As long as there are people in the USA who are willing to hire workers on the sly because they can get them for a cheap price, there are going to be illegal immigrants.

Rather than focusing so much attention on, "walling up," our borders perhaps we should focus on enforcing the laws we already have regarding undocumented labor. If it's unnatractive to come to the USA illegally, it seems to me that less people will do so.

I don't blame the immigrants at all. If I lived in some shit hole place in Mexico, and my only prospect for the future is to become an old decrepit guy living in a shit hole, I'd be looking to get out and get into whatever I felt offered me the best opportunity, by whatever means neccessary.

If I knew that traipsing across the border into the USA would only find me destitute because no one would hire me even for a day to pick beans, I'd be less inclined to want to go there illegally.

But that's just me, I don't know the answer, but I do know that the influx of illegal immigrants into the USA is a problem and needs to be addressed.

I agree with this. You can't keep blaming illegal immigrants while turning blind eyes on those US business that hire illegal immigrants. Stop hiring them and they'll stop cross border to US. No one want to risk everything to cross border to become bums.

If you install a modchip or use hack to install softmod on your xbox then install XBOX Media Center, you can play DVD with progressive scan signal and you can get bonus that you can play almost all media format(divx, xvid, mpeg, etc.)

If you don't have and don't care about XBOX Live then a modded XBOX can be the perfect all-in-one entertainment box.

Lol, I JUST found that out yesterday...and now have $4 million before the maid is even captured.     :shock:

Just remember don't overdo it. There is a bug at the move to second island fund transfer that will overflow and reset your money to minus if you have too much money. I don't know the limit but I know that you can transfer 14 millions safely and can't transfer over 20 millions. I learnt this the hardway when I tried to transfer almost 30

If you have too much money and encounter the bug, you can fix it by loading  a checkpoint save before moving to second island then build a new smaller stronghold to keep your gold(each stack = 400K, so try to build a room smaller than 36 square) then destroy your old stronghold.
