It's spelled Seaman, btw.

Konami is in the process of transitioning out of video games. If they pay, it'll be because of that.

You can mix clever and shock humor. South Park does it often(Though not always).

Oh boy a trip down memory lane. :D

Tom and Jerry Kids
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (old-school cartoon version)
Super Mario Bros. Super Show (live action bits are hilarious)
Duck Tales
Skeleton Warriors
Ronin Warriors
Gundam Wing
Darkwing Duck
Biker Mice From Mars
Rocko's Modern Life
Angry Beavers
Looney Tunes
Ghost Writer (campy mystery show where a ghost would spell stuff out or something, I remember that show being pretty epic when I was little)
Sonic The Hedgehog

...aaaaand that's all I can remember offhand.  :angel:

Did you watch most of the same stuff as a kid as I did? I watched all of these as a kids and liked them.

Gaming Discussion / Re: I haven't played games all day

I think I read daily about games and shit, but there are sessions where I dont touch any game in weeks. Then a game hooks me up and can play really long sessions and then I get sick again and so on.

Yeah, I do something similar myself. Sometimes I'll go a week without gaming or more, but gaming culture is very much present always.

Many years ago, I tried playing Romancing Sa-Ga 3.  I thought I was doing pretty well, and made it to the end, only to have the game not-so-kindly remind me where my place was.  I couldn't beat a single one of the 5 endgame bosses.

Recently, I got the hankering to play some Sa-Ga, and since part of me still wanted to finish RS3, I booted it back up.  I planned ahead, put together what I thought was an optimum party (Katarina, Harid, Sharl, Boston, Fulbright, if you're interested), realized by endgame it was NOT optimum, but still made sure I was power-leveled enough (everyone had >900 HP this time with the other stats to go with.  I optimized my equips, farmed my weapon skills, and hoarded high-end healing items.

It turns out I went completely overboard.  There was still room to improve (a 3 sword user party spamming Split Body would've made MUCH shorter work of things), but I mowed down all the Noble Devils and the final boss--in the most satisfying way possible.

I think I've now finished every SNES RPG I've ever been really interested in (although I'm always up for suggestions), and now the only SaGa games I haven't finished in some way are RS2 (which I love parts of, but the generational mechanic I don't like much) and SF2 (Although I haven't attempted this one in a long time).  And before anyone asks, yes I have finished Unlimited SaGa--with 2 characters.


If you're into action-RPGs on the snes, Front Mission: Gun Hazard's pretty fuckin' good.

Gaming Discussion / Re: Worst RPG Deserts?

I love a lot of things about BoF3, but I never play that desert anymore without a walkthrough.  I seem to remember taking ~1 week to cross it as a kid back when we didn't have internetz at my house.

On the brightside, there's a few world-killing pieces of equipment in there.

Expert Gamer saved my ass so many times... It had a guide that helped us(Back then, me, my mom and my dad all played an RPG together as a family thing) with the desert(Still took a few tries due to our collective idiocy as a family) so, so fucking much with that desert.

Silly question: What made you choose that name?

I'm guessing its the bad Chinese impression that the Siamese cat does, that the bone of contention there. 
My favourite is Mulan although I would kill for a version with no fucking singing in (this what kills my enjoyment of most Disney animated movies for me), failing that Dumbo, I know the crows are a bit of a stereotype but they just crack me up.

The crows have nothing on the tent raising scene.

With such lines as "Work your back your hairless/hairy ape!"(I forget which line) while showing nothing but black workers... Hoooooooooooooo boy.

For the record, I'm sure the animation department was separate from the song writing department for that song, but holy shit it is accidentally racist as hell.

The song playing in that scene also has the workers being proud of how they can't write or read.

I know only the French version (Tout le monde veut devenir un cat, where cat is the english word, referring to the music band, and not to the animal), the racism isn't obvious at all in the french lyrics.

To the contrary, the movie seems to plead for melting-pot : there are cats of almost all races, each helping each other, even the group count what can represent blacks (scat cat), irish, asian, whatever (O'Maley), and the song is complete when the all-white Duchesse plays the harp.

I really wonder what can be in original lyrics to motivate such a reaction...



The Aristocats is my favourite, mainly because music is actually part of the film, and all the stereotypes about French and Paris :) So charmant :)

A shame it's considered as one of the poorest WD.

Among the "recents", I'd say Alladin as well. Even if I find it's kinda of an empty shell.

And it emphasizes the trend of the charismatic bad guy with the near-to-transparent hero a little too much (it'll get worse after).

I really want an Aristocats remake. There aren't enough songs, IMO, the ending was obviously pulled out of their ass at the last minute(Probably due to budgeting issues) and, of course...

The racism in Everybody Wants To Be A Cat. Hooooooooooooooo boy, was I uncomfortable as fuck watching that as an adult. I think my jaw literally dropped.

That case was the first thing that made me absolutely hate Rick Perry as a human being. Ignoring everything else the man has done in his career, positive and negative, he's still very easy to hate for his actions listed in that article.

Breath of Fire 3's desert is most certainly amongst the worst in gaming...

Yeah, programming the VCS/2600 is a bitch. The games may be simple, the code sure as fuck isn't.

You can have features and be accurate as Hell. It all depends on who's making the emulator. See Dolphin. I dunno if I'd call it accurate per se, but it's constantly striving towards accuracy(More than any single system emulator that isn't currently mature), and it's one of the most feature rich emulators out there.

Nintendo owns Pokemon, so it'd be nintendo.

I suspect the OP doesn't really realize how copyright works...

Anyone else experience the wonders of Sleep Paralysis?

Yeah, I dealt with that a lot as a kid. It just got really fucking annoying. I haven't had it happen in quite some time.
