  1. [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][COLOR=dimgray]To be honest, I haven't really looked all too much into the movie, but I do enjoy the books so far (I've only read the first 2, I'm waiting for my girlfriends mom to finish the 3rd). I would definatly have to agree with Darren that Anne Rice's are still my favorite vampire stories.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][COLOR=dimgray]Although I did find Stefanie Meyer's twist on the mythology to be interesting and unique which I liked but you are right the books are lacking in alot of detail, except for Edward.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][COLOR=dimgray]As far as the casting goes, the only one I really know about is Robert Pattinson, and I do think he fits the role pretty well, my girlfriend thinks otherwise though lol. It will be interesting to see though, it's always interesting when they make movies into books, sometimes the movies having their own story entirly, so we'll see what happens I suppose.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
  2. [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][COLOR=gray]Right now I'm currently playing Suikoden Tactics for the PS2, although I'm hoping that the Allmighty Game Gods will grace me and send forth a PSP and Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions to my doorstep this saturday (it's my birthday). But since I doubt that will hard earned cash might just have to do, we'll see after I pay the bills......[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
  3. [quote name='MistressRoxie'][COLOR=#9933ff]I don't think you're expressing yourself quite clearly. Do you mean to say that if the period of menstruation coinsides with the full moon, women are more crazy? :rolleyes:[/COLOR] [COLOR=#9933ff]The fact is that if you believe the moon affects the moods of people, it affects ALL people, and that ALL people exhibit some sort of craziness when the full moon rolls around, REGARDLESS of gender. Don't make this a gender issue or I'll be all over your *** about it.[/COLOR][/quote] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][COLOR=gray]The same concept applies to the word lunatic, but to my understanding it affect all people not just women. Althought I have heard that scientific studies have proved it to be nothing more than a myth. [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][COLOR=gray]I can't remember exactally how it was explained but it was something to the extent of a full moon illuminates the night more, so normally there were more people that would go out, as well as it was easier to see the actions the people were preforming. So even if you could see ok with the full moon, preforming actions that would normally be done by daylight at night made some people seem a bit crazy. It was something to that extent if I remember right.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][COLOR=gray]Anyways to answer the thread question, I don't really think there is a better of the two, I prefer vampires. It's more a matter of elegance for me, I guess you could say I'm kinda a vain person, as well as unemotional, so the image of vampires just mesh better with my own personal thoughts and self image. [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][COLOR=gray]In matter of fact I'm being a vampire for halloween, ha ha.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
  4. [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][COLOR=gray]Well to begin with I'm kinda zombie-ish normally, but with me it doesn't really matter what it is, anime, movies, books, games, I don't really read fan fiction, although I have in my younger days. After I watch or read something my thoughts are caught up in the story, I just try break down the story from every angle, the parts that I liked, the parts that I'd change, what I think the characters are doing after the story ends. There is so much stuff to think about that I lose most sense of reality, and I just tend to sit, stare and think. [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][COLOR=gray]Especially after I finish a story, I sit there and think about it almost constantly. I guess it's a coping mechanism for me, a way to fill the void of finishing something. Although I do it to the point that I almost drive myself insane, then I go find another story, anime, or game to occupy my time. [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][COLOR=gray]It's a nasty cycle I tell you, it's almost like drugs I say, drugs....[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
  5. [quote name='2007DigitalBoy'][COLOR=darkorange]Not to mention it's liable to cause a revolt in which everyone goes straight to fansubs if they haven't already. The rallying cries echoe over the internet.[/COLOR] [COLOR=darkorange]Anyway, many such as myself are militaristically forming our lists of 'to buy' Geneon titles and preparng for a storm of purchases. My friends, tonight... we dine... in your local retailer or online shop![/COLOR][/quote][FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][COLOR=gray] I tried to make a list but it started to get too long, there is just too much stuff that I'd like to see. It's like a nightmare come true I tell you. Hopefully I'll be able to swoop in and rescue a few of the abandoned animes.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
  6. [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][COLOR=gray]Yes it is horrible news indeed, it's a real shame ADV dropped out of the deal to pick up all the Geneon titles. I just hope that someone rises to the occasion and picks some of the titles up, because having a half finished anime isn't any good any way you look at it.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
  7. [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][COLOR=gray]Hmmm it's been awhile since I've been on here to post, anywho Basilisk has been the latest anime I've been watching, and I also had a chance to see Shinobi on the AZN channel.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][COLOR=gray]First of all, as of yet I've been thoroughly impressed with Basilisk in the sense they just fight like Raiyuu said. The skills each one of them have seem very unique, and the animation they use in executing these shots is very well done. (I love the animation for Gennouske's secret ability). As well as everyone thus far seems to have very unique abilities.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][COLOR=gray]The movie is interesting and there are some slight changes, there are five battling ninja from Koga and five from Iga. The abilities are slightly different for some of the characters. Compaired to the anime the character interactions seem lacking, but I giess thats what happens when you go from 20+ episodes to 2 hours. As well as the mentalities of some of the character is slightly different, Gennousuke doesn't want to fight, Oboro actually does, and Tenzen isn't such a creep. The cinematograpy is really interesting and dazzling but really emphasized and unrealistic, I think it fit the look they needed to have though. [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][COLOR=gray]Also I have heard that the original story is based off a Koga or Iga ninja scroll, I think it says it on the preview for the movie, but I could be mistaken.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][COLOR=gray]But so far I'm only up to Volume 3 in the anime, so I'll most likely have more to post later. [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=1][/SIZE][/FONT]
  8. [QUOTE=2007DigitalBoy][color=darkorange]1. The overall thought doesn't mean I'll like it >_> I don't seem to like uch else that's popular... 2. Babies? I doubt I could ever allow that. I have no confidence in my ability to raise children. I am a lot like my dad, and as great as my dad is, if I have a kid he'll end up like me. 3. I can feel guilty bout just about anything >_>[/color][/QUOTE][size=1][color=gray]Hmm it actually sounds like you could use some good loving my friend. Sex while being a good work out is also improves moods, energy and a few more things if I remember right. The power of horomones. Not my place to chose for you though, but just do what you feel your ready for, and if that means avoiding it thats fine, but I don't think I needed to tell you that.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray][/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray]And on the contrary even though I don't personally know you, you might just turn out to be an outstanding dad, because it might make you strive to succeed in the areas you feel your dad might have lacked. I think it's natural to have a fear of fatherhood though, so no worries, actually I'm kinda in the same boat with you[/color][/size].
  9. [size=1][color=gray]Honestly there is nothing wrong with being a virgin, it's a personal choice we all make. Though also on the other end, there is nothing wrong with not being a virgin, for the same reason. I'm like Gavin, and think time is whenever a person is ready. As well as losing your virginity does nothing to alter ones personality, it's just been a coveted title since anchient times, but in todays society the signifigance it once held isn't as strong. [/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray][/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray]I'm guessing your friends sister is about 14 to 16, and at that point any kind of yelling or forcing with almost sway her in the opposite direction. I think the best thing you could do is just tell her to be careful, trust her, and hope she understands that a lot of complications can come from that choice.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray][/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray]Though something that does alarm me, is it seems like sexual activity is starting younger and younger. It just makes me wonder if the younger generations are really ready for it, or just following the crowd, and I think it's option b.[/color][/size]
  10. [quote name='Gavin][size=1']I did give Basch a katana for a while, but eventually normal swords became more powerful so I switched him back.[/size][/quote] [size=1][color=gray]If I remember correctally katana damage is determed by the characters magic att. not strength, so they are good weapons for characters with high magic strength. I had Ashe using one for the majority of the game.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray][/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray]Ninja swords on the other hand deal damage based apon a characters speed. I used them for a bit with Vaan. Overall I liked it as a weapon, the combo rate and damage it did were good, but it made more sense to use a one handed sword to me, or even a dagger, partly because you can outfit a shield, as well as ninja swords have a dark based attacks and there seemed to be alot of zombies who eat that like candy. [/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray][/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray]I can't remember exactally and I'm too lazy to go check, but there is a section in you Hunters Guide or whatever it's called that explains out all the weapons and what the damage they deal is based upon.[/color][/size]
  11. [size=1][color=purple]October sat still within her Volkers cockpit, the battle was over but her adrenaline was still pumping. Quickly coarsing through he veins, blood slowly dripped down the side of her til it reached her chin and fell dotting her legs with drops of crimson. Her grip on the controls was tight and her breath short and shallow. [/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][b]"October Long, are you there, can you respond?"[/b] A voice rang through her Volkers intercom.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple]Octobers eyes widened at the sound of the voice, he breathing slowing as she acsended back to reality. It took a moment before she could respond with a breathy voice,[b] "Yeah, yeah I'm alright, I'll be out of the cockpit in a moment."[/b][/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple]Swiftly jumping out of the cockpit, October landed lightly using the last bit of adrenaline that had been surging. A woman stood infront of her, her hands almost as black as her hair. One of them holding a large wrench.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][b]"What took you so long, I can't fix this baby up if your relaxing in the cockpit."[/b] The womans voice was loud and fast, her words almost slurring as she spoke.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][b]"Sorry, just got stuck in the moment I guess."[/b] [/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][/color][/size] [b][size=1][color=purple]"Ah well you probably want to go get that cheek looked at, be a shame if it scarred, oh and by the way my name is Hale, I'm your mechanic."[/color][/size][/b] [size=1][color=purple][/color][/size] [b][size=1][color=purple]"Nice to meet you Hale, I'm October."[/color][/size][/b] [size=1][color=purple][/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][b]"Ya, ya I know already, get down to the infirmary."[/b] Hale said roughly was she walked past her towards the Volker.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple]October couldn't help but smirk as she headed off towards the infirmary. A woman in front of her, looked a little off balance as she walked, before she suddenely collapsed. [b]"Uh oh, no good."[/b] October jogged foward to help the woman, but before she could reach her a man stood over her. October kicked swiftly at his head, barely missing as he fell back out of the way, before he could do anything else she stepped between them.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][b]"Hey what's the big idea? I'm just trying to help her."[/b] He said cautiously, as if he thought he was staring down a wild animal.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][b]"Help? Wait aren't you a fighter too?"[/b] October stood shocked that a man was trying to "help" a woman. [/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][b]"I guess I'm a fighter, and of coarse I'm trying to help."[/b] He said crawling around October's legs and propping the unconsious womans head up, [b]"What are you standing there for, aren't you gonna help too?"[/b][/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][b]"Oh sorry, I guess I kinda forgot there were, uhh men... on this ship and assumed the worst, but lets get her in the infirmary."[/b] October scratched her head idly, was she really apologizing to a man. Crouching down she grabber the womans legs and helped lift her, slowly carrying her down the hall to the infirmary. [/color][/size] [size=1][color=#800080][/color][/size] [size=1][color=#800080]The man was the first one to speak, as they slowly approached the infirmary door. [b]"My name is Axel, do you mind telling me yours?"[/b] [/color][/size] [size=1][color=#800080][/color][/size] [size=1][color=#800080]October let out a sigh, getting a strange look from the man. [b]"I guess it can't be helped, I'm October."[/b][/color][/size] [color=darkslateblue][/color] OOC: Sorry about the crappy post. Anyways I hope that it's ok I kinda threw my character in with your characters, Astidis and Nucifer. If not just let me know and I'll change things.
  12. [size=1][color=gray]I thought of another thing that scares me, this is related to me as a man more than my prior fears.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray]Being a Father.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray]The thought terrifies me. I guess you could say my dad has been around, but he has been far from a father. I have had other influentual males in my life, but nothing truely comparible to a father, all I know is I never want to be the kind of father to my children as my dad was to me. Also just the impact you have on your childrens lives, and that how they develop and grow at an early age has alot to do with what I do for them. Being responsible for life, and helping it grow is just a great responsibilty and one of my biggest fears, but I can honestly say it's one of the things I'm looking forward to most.[/color][/size]

    The Departed

    [size=1][color=gray]I watched this movie the other night, aand I enjoyed it very much, even if it made me very mad at the end.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray][/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray]The characters were amazing, Damon had some funny lines but at the same time I hated his guts during this film. His character just bugged me, though I think he was supposed to.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray][/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray]Nicholson made the movie my opinion. He was hilarious, and just slammed everyone, who didn't he make fun of. All the thoughts that we normally think but won't say because they aren't politically correct surged from his mouth. He had a rude remark for every given moment, I loved it.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray][/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray]Markie Mark, Mr. Wahlberg was hilarious too. He just talked **** to everyone, another person that said anything that came across his mind. I loved it, not to mention he is a badass. Markie just makes a good badass character.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray][/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray]Lastly Leonardo, I thought he played this role very well. He can be pretty dark when he wants to be. I loved all the senseless violence he commited. I though he portrayed the stress quite nicely, though he never let it get to his physical body.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray][/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray]A very interesting movie, worth a watch. I was also very impressed by some of the shots they got, between camera angle and the backround, pretty interesting for me at least.[/color][/size]
  14. [size=1][color=purple][b]"What the..."[/b] October muttered under her breath as she ran through the halls. She had already made two wrong turns. [b]"This ship, men must have helped design it or something."[/b] She muttered again running and opening a door. The Volker hanger stood before her practically empty of all other Volkers, but her eyes instantly locked on hers as she jumped down the stairs.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple]Her Volker was down on one knee, waiting for it's pilot to bring it to life. October all but bounded into the cockpit, an easier feat for her compaired to most pilots due to the unusual placement of the cockpit, on the front of the waist. [/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple]Quickly October flipped on the neccesary switches, the screens slowly began to glow with life. This wasn't a long process, but for some reason this always seemed to take forever, at least to October. Though the main visual flipped on revealing the hanger from a slightly different view.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][b]"Shall we go catch up now."[/b] October smiled dangerously, launching from the hangar.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple]She reached the front of the battle quickly, if her fighter had anything going for it, it was speed and agility. Extending two sword blades from the Volker's forearms she extended the mech's arms out, taking down two of the small robots. [b]"A classic case of quanity over quality, they must have been designed by men too."[/b] October spoke flipping underneath another robot and bringing her blade up into it.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=purple][/color][/size] [b][size=1][color=purple]"Oh by the way sorry I'm late, I swear a man must have designed the interior, the hall structure makes no sense at all, not to mention the way it looks."[/color][/size][/b]
  15. [size=1][color=gray]Dorian barely noticed as Brian left, headed off to bed. This was starting to get too out of hand, things were really being put on the line and how long before it stopped. Quan has everyone, well most everyone boxed up, caged in like a singing canary. Whatever his intentions they aren't good, that was one thing Dorian could be sure of. Dorian couldn't help but ask himself how dark would he have to become to protect everyone and make sure there wasn't another Cat.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray][/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray]A yawn from Eden brought Dorian away from his own thoughts, [b]"You should probably get to bed too, it is late you know."[/b] He spoke, the words a little rougher than he would have wished, but it couldn't be helped.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray][/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray][b]"What about you mister, it's late for you too you know." [/b]Eden replied playfully.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray][/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray]Dorian couldn't help but smirk, but at the same time he felt a sense of loss, [b]"I don't sleep much anymore, ever since my powers started I need to sleep less and less, I don't even know if I need to sleep anymore....but I always have said sleeping was a waste of time?"[/b] Dorian finished with a laugh trying to balance out the discord in his tone.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray][/color][/size] [b][size=1][color=gray]"I'm sorry, I didn't know."[/color][/size][/b] [size=1][color=gray][/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray][b]"Exactally so don't bother apologizing, plus I never said I couldn't sleep just that I didn't need to sleep, there's a difference ya know."[/b] Dorian smiled, getting a relieved smile back from Eden.[/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray][/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray]Standing Dorian slowly stretched his arms above his head, [b]"Well, I think I am going on a early morning ride, you're welcome to come if you want but I wouldn't want you missing sleep either, your call?"[/b][/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray][/color][/size] [size=1][color=gray]OOC: You don't have to accept Eclipse, I just felt like dragging you into the story more ^_^. [/color][/size]
