Games that got overshadowed by other games during that month 25 Gaming Discussion 9/15/14 10:06am
skyryo
"During that month" is a bit limiting, as there are some games that can generate shadows long before (with their hype) and long after (with their continual over-emphasis) their release. For example, pretty much anything released in Q2 and Q3 1997, because of the 7 Sep 1997 release of a certain Playstation RPG featuring two guys with absurdly long swords, one of whom would continually engage ...

Used Original PS3 Worth Getting? 23 Gaming Discussion 9/18/14 12:53am
Naya Merai
The earliest runs of PS3 had backwards compatibility; it was stripped out in later runs to shave production costs.

Used Original PS3 Worth Getting? 23 Gaming Discussion 9/18/14 12:53am
Naya Merai
If the following are true: 1. You don't have and can't find a working PS2 (if I recall, even the run of 3s that had 2-compatibility weren't perfect about it); 2. You have enough of a PS2 library to justify it; 3. This 3 appears to be in good condition; Then go for it.

So, uh - what's the problem with campus rape? 102 Extended Discussion 9/17/14 5:39pm
Project 429
It's dangerous to assume that anyone is 100% safe to be around; but "stay away from them to ensure my own safety" is in fact judging harshly, unless you apply the same judgement to the majority of random strangers. That's cutting pretty close to paranoia though. Depends on jurisdiction; though the most likely charge would be second degree murder. You're "breaking their legs" with a metho ...

Could Nazis secretly be behind Pokemon? 27 Extended Discussion 9/19/14 5:28pm
D i c k Poffin
Fusafa? Furisanfa? I can't figure out how to derive モーツァルト from フリーザー サンダー ファイヤー Perhaps we can discuss this problem first. ^^ Also, the German names are Arktos, Zapdos and Lavados, so we can't appeal to them. You know, maybe it's the descendants of the Normans - the Nordics that settled in northern France --- which is in fact the region of ...

Finding the perfect name (D&D or any game really) 2 Table-Top Gaming 9/18/14 2:01am
Taenamyr
What I used to do was to open a map of some foreign country, find a word that looks kinda like a name, and run with it - or just use random syllables. Nowadays I'm more apt to pick a word, look it up in wiktionary to see if any foreign translations sound name-ish, and adapt those. For example... suppose this runt half-orc was named Viviorcha. To some humans, it sounds like a name that is a ...

Why was Adam exempt from the transgression when the transgre 39 Morality and Religion 9/12/14 5:34pm
Gnostic Christian Bishop
Thanks for this. I have no argument but I do have one comment. Paul did not write Genesis. Regards DL Paul wrote 1 Timothy, which is relevant to your first question of why Adam "was exempt from the transgression." In the Genesis 3 narrative, Adam was cursed with the burden of having to produce his own food, against a "cursed" ground that would actively resist his efforts. :3nod:

That's also somewhat of a myth. Education was less generally available, sure; but it was by no means absent. Also, what's described for the "medieval peasant woman" may well describe farmer families in the 18th, 19th, and even early 20th centuries - and some societies, whether incidentally or intentionally, even today.

Why Are Gamer Girls so rude? 179 Gaming Discussion 9/22/14 9:38pm
Mister Fedorable
Why are you generalising that based on one experience? A fair chunk of my Steam friendslist coincidentally happens to be "girls playing a game like L4D2" - and several other games that you'd likely stereotype as being MANLY MAN games; and I don't know any of them to be antisocial. Most of them would respond just as coldly to your overtures, however. I've never heard of a custom in which ...

Because Paul says so. It's pretty consistent with Paul's view about women when contrasted with men; these are different from some of his better-known "exclude ALL the distinctions!" statements. But it does boil down to that, in the end: Paul was unlucky in love, and wound up blaming women for it - so naturally in HIS churches and HIS gospel, women are to be equal with respect to Christ, but ...

Theology 63 Morality and Religion 9/17/14 5:06pm
Nika Vladilen
One of the most amusing "sticking points" for me when someone says that the Bible and science match up is this. Gregor Mendel, a late 19th century Catholic monk, discovered some of the rules by which genetic inheritance occurs. In Genesis 30, Jacob is seen being able to intentionally manipulate allele distributions with a set of rune-carved quarterstaffs, consistently propagating double- ...

Crazy Bible Verses 76 Morality and Religion 9/20/14 6:12am
The Magical Yuri Toaster
This one takes a bit to set up. Genesis 6:5-8 Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. The Lord was sorry that he had made man on the earth, and he was grieved in his heart. The Lord said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping ...

Favorite Opening Cinematics? 22 Gaming Discussion 9/8/14 6:59pm
Mitsuki the ninja
My thunder's mostly stolen - because I'd absolutely have put Wild Arms 1+3, PSU, and Soul Edge (though Sophitia's nudity was gratuitous even though it wasn't showy...) but I can still offer a couple. 1. Choukousenki KIKAIOH / Tech Romancer. This is the "anime" version of the OP. One of my favourite games EVER, for the record. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2-UpK0r2hY By the way: before ...

Suicide prevention, has no value. 20 Morality and Religion 9/9/14 8:45am
Culdra
Part of it is making sure that suicide is really what the other person wants, rather than being a knee-jerk reaction to s**t Happens. Maybe they don't realise that there are alternatives, or are afraid (or ashamed) to pursue them. Or maybe their "reason" is absurdly petty, and they just need an extra moment to chill out. Sometimes it's a matter of a chemical imbalance (as some forms of de ...

Do you think Krystal should be in SSB4? 14 Fighting Games 9/24/14 6:50pm
MangaFreak325
I wouldn't want her in. Personally, I'd go for Gandrayda (from Metroid Prime 3,) with her Shang Tsung-like polymorphing ability handled through a special attack kinda like how Kirby gets his hats; or Dark Samus, as a different "version" of Samus similar to how Toon Link is different from Link, or Luigi from Mario. --- As for how many female characters we have, I can confirm 8 ladies and 4 t ...
