  1. How to know what you really want to do?

    I actually wondered this recently. I always thought there should be something you're good at and something else you enjoy. They should become your career and your hobby, respectively. But I had a hard time figuring out what I was actually good at. What I exceled in, or in what I was consistently ahead of my peers throughout my life. I figured out it was writing. It was kind of a weird conclusion to come to, but it made sense. I always considered myself an artist, a musician, a computer nerd... never really a writer. But I have in fact been writing prose and poetry for as long as I can remember. So maybe you should ask yourself those same things, and maybe you'll get an unexpected answer.

  3. New anime?

    There are animes that are somewhat passable and interesting, but fanboys are usually what give it a bad reputation. For the most part, though, it wouldn't be that bad without them. That's the general rule, anyway. And then there's DBZ. I actually think it's more painful to watch the series than hear people go on about it. I can't find one redeemable thing about it. If the only thing you know about DBZ is how face-fuckingly awesome people say it is, you're better off.
  4. 12ms response time for lcd monitor???

    That's because Samsung monitors are awesome. I have a 204b, want a 244t.
  5. 12ms response time for lcd monitor???

    For high-speed games (e.g. FPSs), you'd want something with 8ms or better. Otherwise you'll experience blurring and it'll seem unresponsive.
  6. New anime?

    Yeah, I really wish they'd done more with Elfen Lied. It's fantastic. You can argue amongst yourselves as to whether or not this qualifies as anime, but I just found some guy who took all the scenes from the game Full Throttle and compiled it into a movie. THE AWESOMENESS CANNOT BE CONTAINED. EDIT: Heh, the credits are funny. [Edited by - I Like Bread on January 19, 2007 10:50:56 PM]
  7. WoW Guild gets nasty

    I've tried a few MMOGs in my time, and the thing I don't like about them is the Catch-22 I encounter. This is my own experience, in case that needs to be clarified. The gameplay is not deep. Essentially, it's an RPG battle engine wrapped in a chat client. Most commands can be automated, and strategy is shallow. The one thing that saves it is the social aspect of the game. However, it's extremely unlikely that you'll be able to ENJOY the social aspect if you play casually. You'll often find a good group, only to log in a week later to find that they're all 8 levels ahead of you; the effort involved in finding people to schedule the occasional raid with is so difficult, your only other option is to play as often as possible. To top it all off, playing so often sucks every last bit of enjoyment the battle engine might have had. You end up macro-ing everything, so we're back to the 'chat client' thing.
  8. Girl who will never grow up

    They've virtually denied this child any semblance of a functional lifestyle (if she did have a chance of that in the first place, but that's neither here nor there). Speaking in terms of humanity, I see no difference between this and putting a bullet in her brain.

  11. Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy appreciation and commiseration

    OK, so I'm liking this game so far. I have to say, though, that the controls are really frustrating (interacting with items and messing with the camera bring back bad memories of 'pixel hunting' from old adventure games). The graphics are subpar, even considering the freedom of movement-- the lighting, especially. This is definitely a game I see myself replaying, if only for the plot variations.
  12. Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy appreciation and commiseration

    Hmm. I was planning on buying this game at a discount, since I'd heard it was unconventional. Looks like there isn't much to look forward to.
