The problem with unwritten traditions is that, because they're unwritten, they can be changed by anyone to suit their own prejudices, so this particular argument is entirely worthless.

Aerdan, in Acts, much of the Old Testiment laws are tossed out the door. I don't recall the exact verse or number, but I've read it more than once.

Hard for the genre? Or hard for a Castlevania game in general? Because the recent Castlevania game that I've played weren't very challenging, although people have said that they've been getting better about this.

If you mean hard, even in comparison to the old ones, then I should probably stay away. I can played Metal Gear with my eyes closed, but the old Castlevanias used to whip me.

Hard compared to most of the more modern series.

The thing is the damage enemies do is fucking insane. It's far higher, and dodging enemy attacks is harder than in other modern CV games.

FWIW, the modern CV games have up and down difficulty. Like, COTM is probably the hardest of the modern style ones, while I'd say this one is likely the most unfair. It shares some of the issues that HoD did, in that it's hard to dodge enemy attacks, but for different reason(In HOD, your whip is not long enough. Enemies typically have way longer range than you or are faster).

So I beat Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia.

Pretty decent, but the balance is off. In some ways it's way too hard.

Rar does occasionally compress better than 7zip, but only on certain types of data(like CDDA tracks).

Level-5 games almost always have some sort of blandness to the setting, art style, etc, but never to the damn gameplay. This game had the blandest gameplay ever.

I don't think I played it for more than an hour before shelving it. I have done that very rarely for RPGs.

This ain't a good game, folks. It's Bland: The RPG. Yes, that's right, it's dethroned Beyond The Beyond for title of Blandest RPG Ever.

RHDN doesn't really care as long as it's Zip, Rar or 7Zip. Those are the three allowed formats for compressed files that aren't Mac(We have a few DMG files).

To be fair, not a single geophysical modeller anticipated a magnitude 9 earthquake on that fault. The maximum predictions they had were about magnitude 8.2, and they built the sea wall around Fukushima to withstand a tsunami generated by such a quake. Still, I always think for such things you should always prepare for far worse than what the model results say.

That was basically my point, lol.

Japan had a lot of human error too, if you look it up. The reactor was supposed ot be offline by the time it went down, plus they did not protect it from both earthquakes AND tsunamis. It was built to take one or the other, not both.

I know what you're thinking. "Why would you do such a thing?" My answer? Earthquakes cause tsunamis. And Japan is prone to both.

Regardless of all this, there's more than one kind of nuclear energy... There are safer alternatives out there that just haven't been developed as much for varying reasons.

I want to end this post on a note: Japan's biggest problem is not nuclear fallout from the reactor, but the hugely declined birth rate. Their birth rate is negative. Think about that and the consequences for the moment.

Another example would be the Genesis games Zero Tolerance and the unfinished sequel Beyond Zero Tolerance. As long as one does not hack those games, they are free and clear to distribute and use.

ZT is a good FPS btw, but keep in mind the limitations of the genesis platform, up to and including the three button+start button controller.

We don't have an EXP system per se, just a series of stars that you get more of when you get more posts. Plus, only site or forum staff members get the maximum amount anyway...

Also, anti-patriotic?

I've been playing SRWJ recently.

It is so good omg

The favorite series mechanic is weird. I chose Dancougar(Even though I've never seen it, the bot just looks cool), G Gundam and Tekkaman Blade.

That's not a problem on PSP. PPSSPP has a debugger that, in my biased opinion, surpasses even no$gba. There's also plenty of documentation out there, helped by the fact that everaything really low level is abstracted by sony libraries.

Yeah but to be fair you only added that debugger recently. :P

Ah, FF8. All of the early FF trappings and none of the quality.
