  1. I read a good manga recently called Peepo Choo.  It's basically about this kid from the USA who's really obsessed with Japan and he thinks it's some kind of happy magical place.  Then there's this guy who lives in Japan and he's part of the Yakuza.  He's really obsessed with violent American movies and he thinks America is just how it is the the movies.   These story lines intersect for some great entertainment.  It's violent as hell and there's a lot of nudity.  Not a manga for children but it's pretty damn cool.
  2. Pic: [img]http://i.imgur.com/liWoF.jpg[/img] Title: Redline Year: 2009 Studio: Madhouse Watched Dubbed or Subbed: Dubbed Synopsis: The movie starts out with a qualifying race for Redline. Redline is a racing event involving creatures from many different planets. As it turns out, this Redline will be held on "Roboworld" where the government swears to kill anyone who enters their atmosphere. Thoughts: The visuals in this movie are amazing. I wouldn't expect much less from Madhouse, who are known for making some good anime. You may want to watch the dubbed ve
  3. I have two tattoos on my back that I drew myself. I just wanted a couple little symbols that made me feel a certain way. So I got them. Don't know if I really need anymore, but if I decided I did and had no fear of what future employers would think, I'd probably get an anime girl of some sort on my forearm.

    I'm looking forward to some more info on the Nintendo 3DS. Looks like they're onto something. I've heard it's supposed to be as powerful as the XBOX 360. What I would really like to see is that the whole Duke Nukem Forever fiasco was one big conspiracy and that it's actually coming out soon. Somehow I doubt that will happen though. I'm also hoping for some cool games that have yet to be announced. Maybe some more 8-bit games in the works? Super Mario Bros. 4 8 bit? Perhaps an entirely new 8 bit game from Capcom? If not I'll just have to settle for a cop
  5. I've had quite a few good teachers through out the years. For now though I think I'll just focus on one. My first year of college I took physics from an awesome no BS teacher. My mind was blown countless times learning about the theory of relativity, and how things work on a quantum level. There were many good documentaries watched. There were also many lessons taught outside as the teacher smoked cigarette after cigarette. I'm not sure how many people will get cancer as a result of this class, but I have to say it will probably be worth it. This teacher hated technology,
  6. I've had a few teachers in my past that I couldn't stand for various reasons. I'm sure other people have had bad teachers as well, so feel free to post about your experiences. I'm going to focus on one I had last year. I ended up dropping out of his class. I almost don't know where to start with this one. He never had any real reading material. Instead he relied on power point presentations that he would flash through while he briefly said something. Then he would expect you to answer a bunch of these random questions on tests that you first of all wouldn't kno
  7. I have weird dreams all too often. I'll just post my dream from last night. I was in wal-mart and I stole something which is weird, because I don't shoplift, and the alarm thing was going off as I left. I don't even think I was stealing anything specific, it was just something. This old guy was screaming at me to come back in when the alarm went off. I went outside and put it in my friends car, which happened to be some youtube celebrity I don't actually know in real life. I went in after dropping the thing off and walked around the store with this weird old guy and some
  8. http://crapsoft.hostzi.com - My current website. I have some code and a couple games I've made. http://myspace.com/nexus3067 - music that I've made.
  9. I have some basic open source video editing software that I could splice some clips together with. I couldn't probably add any cool text on the screen and move it around in real time or anything. Don't know exactly what you need help with, or if you still need help. Wouldn't mind hearing some more about that game though
  10. Depends on what I'm feeling I guess. I'm pretty fond of Dr. Pepper. I also like Vanilla Coke, and regular Coke. Every once in a while I'll go with root beer. I drink a lot of tea and water as well. Trying to lay off the caffeine at the moment so I've been having Coke instead of tea. Tea and coffee are good. So is caffeine. Surge is my favorite. I need a time machine so I can get some.
  11. [quote name='Gavin' date='01 June 2010 - 09:22 PM' timestamp='1275441748' post='694176'] [font="Tahoma"][size="2"]So which of new OB's two skins are you grooving to (and why) ? Liking Wet Paint myself, the reds and greys of Basic are just looking a little too harsh for me over the softer tones of orange and blue.[/size][/font] [/quote] Wet Paint looks cooler to me. I wonder if these are slightly modified default skins or completely original. Either way it looks nice. Glad to see Invision Board is still alive and kicking.

  13. Not sure when this was done last, but regardless I'm interested in seeing what everyone's computer desktop looks like. Feel free to show your actual desk as well. To make things interesting why not also talk a bit about your setup. I'll start: This is my Desktop which is currently running the latest version of Ubuntu Linux. My wallpaper is something from www.theotaku.com . I chose Linux as my operating system because Windows is less secure for a variety of reasons. I dual boot with Windows and Linux on both my desktop computer and my netbook. [attachment=14691:S
  14. I think I've actually cut back my drinking habits from those I had a few years ago. For at least the past year or so I've enjoyed guzzling down a 40 oz about once a week, with a beer or two thrown in during the week. Every once in a while though, they're be a social even that I probably drink a bit too much at. I only gage the amount I drank as too much if I wake up sick in the morning. Also strip clubs make me feel like drinking. I have to stay away from them. They make me spend a lot of money and end up doing crazy things. Like the time I volunteered to be a judge for an
  15. NES, SNES, n64, wii, gameboy, gameboy advance, nintendo ds, ps1, broken genesis, xbox 360. I've had other consoles that have come and gone. My favorites at the moment are Xbox 360 and WII. The 360 has proven to have some great RPGs and some other stuff like the space shooter Ikaruga, not to mention old school games. Gradius Rebirth on the wii has been amazing, and with a little hacking the wii has so many more possibilities it's awesome. *COUGH* xeem pong wii *cough* Looking forward to the day I upgrade my DS. I'll either get a DSI-XL (who wants a smaller screen?) or whatever
  16. Hmm...the name kittylynn does seem kind of familiar. Pretty sure I've seen it before. I'm not sure what year I was most active, but probably in the 2002-2003 area.
  17. I've dealt with many a cafeteria and most of the time it wasn't pleasant. The best cafeteria food I had was in college. You paid a standard fee to go in and get whatever you wanted. They had pancakes in the morning, and at all times of the day had many different types of cereal, soda, juice, milk. They also had lots of fruits and veggies. I mainly got apples, bananas, and cereal. High school was another story. I hated the food in high school, and it wasn't usually very healthy either. At first I got pizza, but eventually I got tired of it. Then I just went without eating. Senior
  18. Who here's played it? I got it the day it came out and beat it shortly after. So far I've unlocked one of the secret levels in world 9, but I don't think it's going to be worth it to get all of them (unless I just get them gradually over the next couple of years). I would say this game far exceeded my low expectations. I enjoyed it a lot better than the DS game with a similar name. Edit: To elaborate a bit I thought I would say some more stuff about the game. It felt more like an actual Mario sequel to me than Yoshi's Island for some reason. It almost seems like a combination of
  19. Almost everything seemed to be mentioned already, but I thought I'd add a few things. It wouldn't hurt to format the hard drive after backing up everything that you need. Sometimes the malware/spyware/adware can be pretty nasty and leave traces even after using such programs as spybot search and destroy. There's another good program for removing spyware which is called adaware which you can get at [url]http://www.lavasoft.com/[/url] (just get the free version). You might want to get a firewall to protect yourself from outgoing connections. The built in windows one does fine, but I'm
  20. Star Ocean 4 was amazing. I find that the battle engine is similar to, but a million times better than Tales of Vesperia. I started playing Vesperia, but I just can't get into it as much as I did Star Ocean 4. It's made by Squaresoft, which as you probably know is the company that brought you Final Fantasy among other things. It's a prequel, so you wont be missing anything from the other games.
  21. if you have a desktop i would recommend a wireless PCI card. you might be able to find one used pretty cheap too. it shouldn't be too hard to install and it would probably last longer than a usb receiver. i've had a couple of those usb receivers break on me. they also seem to disconnect a lot easier, which can be a problem if you're using it for games.
  22. go straight to college without taking a year off. take computer science in college. wait until after college to have any sort of relationship. keep up the good work and enjoy your senior year of high school. also bet a few thou on the red socks winning the world series. i don't care how you get the money, just do it.
  23. Peta's getting redundant. Looks just like Kentucky Fried Cruelty to me. At one point I kind of liked what I thought they were saying. Turns out their master plan involves banning all domestic animals. Don't you think that's a tad bit over kill for so called animal lovers? I highly doubt they'll ever accomplish that either. They also want to ban animal testing, even when it helps advance the medical world. I can't speak for everyone when I say this, but I think the lives of a few animals should be spared if it improves the lives of human beings. In doing all this their ad
  24. I'd say he's one of the best, if not the best, retro game reviewers out there at the moment. His reviews are often very interesting and entertaining. His recent transformers review made me go play the game. It was honestly just as hard as he said it was. I'd say it was harder than Gradius 3 (which is the hardest game I've ever completed). Much better than the Irate Gamer.
  25. Castlevania 2 for the original Nintendo. It was a dark night during a lightning storm and I had heard in the paper of a kid that got zapped using a Nintendo during a lightning storm. My parents were out of the house so it was pretty quiet besides the storm and the faint 8 bit music. An image of the flame whip on one of the later levels is still burned into my mind. A few years later I rented Bart's Nightmare for the Super Nintendo and had a similar experience. For some reason when your a kid and you have the chance to play a game all night when no one's home except for maybe your olde
