Happy Birthday to bolingerjhon

04 December 2014 - 06:35 PM

I'd like to give a warm happy birthday greeting to one of our most revered members: A Mr. bolingerjhon. Though some of you may not have heard of him, he performs a very powerful service to us Denizens by helping us compare car rental rates. Ah, I remember when he joined back in October 2010. He was a man of few words. None, in fact. But it says a lot about a man's character that he can be so important with no posts to his name. He's been an integral part of our community for years now, even if he hasn't been around since October 2010.


So I raise a glass to you bolingerjhon. You are truly missed around here.... 

Anyone going Black Friday shopping...?

16 November 2014 - 10:27 PM

It's been a tradition the last few years for me to go Black Friday shopping. I know it gets a lot of press for being ABSOLUTELY BONKERS, to the point that most stores open at 1:00 AM, but it's been for the benefit of normal people like me, who gets a good nights sleep and goes out at 12:00 in the afternoon and comes home with a handful of good games and movies at a reasonable price.


In all honesty, unless you're a psychopath who wants to get in as early as possible to make sure you're the one who gets one of two available 19-inch TVs for $98 there's really nothing that's in danger of running out of stock so there's no reason to go rush in at such an early time. The irony, of course, is that store's open early for the people who want to get there as early as possible, but by the time 9:00 rolls around, most of them have cleared out, and it gives the normal shoppers more breathing room and fewer a-holes to wade through.


And aside from maybe one or two moments of selfishness, I've yet to encounter any crazies or outlandish lines so I've often found myself enjoying the hunt for cheap stuff.


That being said, if you do go out shopping on Black Friday, please be polite and courteous to the poor retail workers who have had to suffer through wave after wave of douchenozzles.


But anyways, anyone else gonna go out Black Friday shopping on Nov. 28th?

Naruto Ends (and we've all been set free)

06 November 2014 - 10:39 AM

Long-term readers can breathe a sigh of relief as they have all been released from Natuto's grip. No longer are you shackled to a manga that refused to die that you've mostly been following because you've spent a large chunk of your life reading it and you wanted to see it through to the end.

The final chapter itself was okay, but it was mostly an attempt to show us as many people's future as Kishimoto could in 20 pages. It all boiled down to an obvious but satisfying ending with a few of the obvious shippings being shown.

(Alright, Bleach. You're next.)

Happy Birthday DJ BlackJack!

Even though it's been almost two years since you logged in, you were one of my favorite regulars at the time. So happy birthday and I hope it's a good one!

I Should Probably Get Around to Finishing VI Now.....

08 October 2014 - 10:10 PM

Soooooooo........ I never actually finished VI. I literally made it to Mortamor and even went through an intense couple hours level grinding. But that was a few weeks after the game came out and I never did get around to finishing it. I picked it up again a few days ago and realized I have forgotten almost everything.


I forgot that I was raising my levels up and mastering some classes so most of my party isn't the class I want them to be. I forgot how to navigate this ridiculous overworld, with its two different versions, many ways of traveling, and most of all how to navigate the boss' realm (Dread-something-or-other. See! I don't even remember what it's called). Like, I can't figure out how to get to the boss' castle and any of the strategies for fighting him.


So long story short: how do I get over to his castle, travel back home to change my classes, and what are some tips for fighting him? I vaguely remember being told to take out one hand before the others?


This is like my only unfinished DS game so it would be great to finally beat all my DS games and remove one less game from my Backlog of Shame.
