@kogx: I am seeing a huge difference in the video you linked. He does the comparison at the 0:50 mark.

If you play FF3, just stick with the onion knight class. They are way stronger than they should be, and since you never have to start your level over if you never change class, you end up stronger than you would if you switched classes. It's absurd.

Yeah it's crazy but I'm sure people will explain why there is no reason to panic and why thinking this is crazy is silly

Normally I'd yell at people for ignoring the PPP value, but the British pound's PPP to USD is only 8%, so the net value of a pound is still about 150% of the USD.

So really all you can blame is marketers for figuring out that a subset of British consumers way overvalue EA games.

I can't stand playing most games anymore because most do nothing more than rehash extremely old ideas. And when I play a game that specifically tries something new, there's a pretty good chance it's just one new layer on a ton of old ones. And even then, there's of course a chance I won't like the new mechanic anyway.

I still like watching Let's Play's though, can't really explain why.

Cheating hurts the grade curve for everyone else, so I never did it. I'm not sure if that makes me a saint or a chump. Well, either way, I'd rather be a chump than hurt some other innocent's chances at a good grade.

I remember seeing a headline that said the "Holy Grail of cancer research" had been found.

It turned out that this "holy grail" drug extended the average lifespan of people with one type of cancer by 4 months.

In other words, don't fall for BS headlines.

The Ngage. That's the right answer, right?

Some people are blissfully unaware of how poorly they enunciate their words. Unfortunately, trying out the new X1 and Kinect is a very poor time to learn about this, especially since the Kinect may to be blame for much of the recognition problems anyway.

Upside to downloading:

  1. Speed of purchase
  2. Don't need to take discs in/out
  3. Can't lose a disc or case
  4. Less environmental waste..?

Downsides to downloading:

  1. Need internet access to download
  2. Reliant on servers being up when you need to download
  3. No manual or case to look at
  4. Resale options are limited
  5. If the publisher goes bankrupt, who knows what happens to your ability to download the game
