Alternative Character Battle 2 - Battle 1 (Second Round): Terra Branford vs Arcueid Brunestud

On the subject of including medals to the 10k list, I'm still going forward with counting the amount of medals one user has. Getting 10,000 different medals on the site will be time consuming, even if there'll many games with very easy medals.

Listening to:

In Flames - Colony

Of course Immortal are.

But then none of your alts can get the chainsaw, so HA!
Well, that's the way how life goes. HA!

I believe I won that argument. HA!

It's not all about the cheesy quotes.
Oh yes, it is. That's what the game is best remembered for. Gameplay and/or scary scenes (like the dogs that jump through the window) only come in second place.

Nope, gameplay first, then scary scenes and THEN cheesy quotes.

No, reviews will not be split up in the list. By doing that we'll have FOUR different review categories covering flash, audio, art and literature whenever that's up.

Oh yeah, that would be quite the overkill. Even though it's kinda sad to see all the reviews "buried" in just one total stat. But four different review categories would be way too much.

Well first it doesn't really roll off the tongue as well, and second considering it's pretty easy to cheat the system and steal medals it would be hard to tell from people who legitimately earned medals from those who stole medals without using suspicion and hearsay. You can check out the top medal list to see what all sorts of problems they are having with it.

But all in all I'm not the one who makes that call (or the list), so if Bahamut supports it so shall I. :P

Holy shit, now that I stop to think about it, 13k flashes (well, I didn't get b/p for every single flash I have watched/played so far, so it's more than that) is a fucking lot!

That's why I question people when they get more than 100 B/P a day for a week. If you can honestly watch that many movies (not counting the ones that passed that you voted to blam) then you need to find a new hobby. :P

I know what you mean though. It's crazy to think that you've voted correctly on that many flashes.

Yeah, I almost feel like there should be an additional thread where they can call people out and try to prove it there because they are really bringing the threads off topic. It's quite annoying actually. PM system anyone?

What the hell is the point of the medal system if your not going to play the game the way it's suppose to be played.

Hm, I think "Hexa" rolls a lot better of the tounge than "Penta" does.

You can check out the top medal list to see what all sorts of problems they are having with it.

That discussion yesterday was amazing to watch. Too bad no mod was online when I checked. ^^
But there are people who also cheat with B/P and with reviews (in my opinion, spitting out one liner after one liner is cheating. ^^), so it wouldn't be anything new.

There is no way to really prevent this since practically all flash games can be decompiled in some fashion. You just have to hope that people are able to spot them by finding they earned medals out of order i.e. they earned a medal for beating the game while they don't have one for an easy level, etc.

Well those people are easy to spot and a quick PM to a Review Mod they are gone. It's a little more difficult with medals and there is no real person to inform, if and when you spot them; Goldfish if he isn't busy, I guess...

Still, extremely high up there so quite an achievement experience wise. I'd be around that level if certain factors hadn't prevented my deposits.
Don't look forward to reaching it once the voting curve comes back into play. D:

I really hope that the voting curve doesn't return. Judging by how ridiculous it was to level up pre-redesign, I find it hard to imagine that the staff would think it was a good idea to bring it back. Surely that would just create the need for another redesign of the levels at some point in the future.

There was apparently the possibility of users who reached level 60 being able to continue to level up past 60, but retaining the same icon. Either that option or added levels would be better than reintroducing the DREADED CURVE, IMO.

We could have it to where only one IP address could only submit two items per day but god forbid anyone on AOL networks who want to submit anything since IP Address tend to be shared by regions.

People still use AOL? :P

Well, the Flash Portal already alerts about AOL and it's IP problems. Maybe the staff could just say "whatever" to AOL users and implement that 2 flashes per IP thing. I believe there aren't many AOLers left, anyway.

A higher blam threshold would be nice but if it was bumped up to closer to 2 or exactly at 2 then what would be the point of voting 2 on things? Sure you could vote 3, but some movies are worth that much but are still worth saving.

I don't get it... If it was, for example, 1.90, it would still get saved if you voted two...

Well thought, it would be a huge responsibility to just leave the submissions in someone else's hands. But the mods could deal only with the recently submitted ones, if they're really concerned about it. Like removing file-swappers instantly, flagged submissions...
As far as I can tell, the Audio Mods don't delete stuff but rather pass them on to Wade and he removes it. Maybe a system like that would be reasonable to be considered or else some way to flag a submission after judgement.

That's a good idea, but who knows when he'll check all those flashes. Maybe if a certain number of mods agree that a submission is stolen/malicious etc... the submission would get deleted automatically. I mean, so many of them couldn't be wrong at the same time, right? That would make things quicker for the staff.

Hahahhaha, I agree. He wasn't even added to the staff page yet :P
That's Stamper's lazy ass not doing anything. :P

Luis could add himself to the page. What is he doing there, getting drunk? :P

I'm still about 1,000 away from '21, but azteca89 is mostly inactive, so an easy pass, I feel :)

Heh, yes my dad is also mostly responsible for my knowledge of 80's music. I got to know U2 thanks to him.

Sweet. Although my dad is probably older than yours (he's 50 now), his musical ''era'' was a bit earlier. He's more fond of 60's/70's music. However, I think he has a tape (yeah, a tape!) with ''Joshua Tree'' in it. I don't know if it works or not, though.

And downloading music is still easy, isn't it?

Eh, not really. I'm concerned about it nowadays, with all the recording companies bitching about it. =/

Ziggy Stardust is a classic. My dad has a live LP which has some song from it, it's really good.
Yeah I heard it was pretty much his best album. I don't know much about his other albums though, and I don't think my dad has any David Bowie CD's or LP's unfortunately.

Get them yourself, why not... =)

Also, I share birthdays with Bowie. =)
Nice! I share birthdays with George W. Bush |= |

Oh, great... =/

I also share birthdays with Elvis Presley.

Ah, Tubular Bells is my Oldfield reference. I like his music, despite having some really long tracks. Also, I think he did the soundtrack to The Exorcist with that album.
Yeah I know he did the soundtrack of The Exorcist. Although I'm not sure what that song was called.

I think Tubular Bells has only two 20-minute tracks, called Tubular Bells I and II.

Never heard that one. =P But if you are interested, try Invisible Touch, or their Live Over Europe 2007, both are great albums.
Oh wait, my bad. The song is called Solsbury Hill actually. And it was made by Peter Gabriel AFTER he left Genesis.

Well, I listened to it, and it's a great song indeed. I'll see if my dad has anything by Peter Gabriel.

In that case I don't know, isn't Sledgehammer one of their songs? I do like that one.

Nope, still Peter Gabriel. :P

The guy with the red guitar? He's awesome. And his technique is admirable, since he does what Hendrix did: left handed with a right handed guitar. And he sings well too.
Yeah the one who sings the part at the beginning. Don't know much about guitar techniques, but indeed the singing is great.

He sings and plays solo guitar really well (even though there are three guitarists, and they alter who makes each solo). He also sings the chorus and plays the solos in "Comfortably Numb''.

Is he perhaps a pretty famous guitarist like Snowy White?

I haven't heard of him before, so...

I thought the backing vocals (the girls) would say something during that part, but we can only hear the synths solo. They have a drink, pretend to play poker for a while and finish the song, right?
Pretty much, but you do hear the dealer shout a few times. Can't hear what he's saying though.

Right... I think there are subtitles in the DVD, though.

Ah, great! It's one of my favourite movies as well, although I don't have the DVD. I really like the Comfortably Numb part, despite being a little "annoying" watching him shaving everything he has. =P

But it's an excellent movie indeed. I have to watch it again someday.
Hehe yeah that part is a bit awkward. But very powerful emotionally though, especially at the solo where you see his flashbacks as a kid.

Indeed. That part and ''The Trial'' as well are very ''touching''.

Sounds like fun. Spring break will come and go for me. I'll be applying for some summer jobs around this time and then after that break I only have the summer. I don't really consider the summer a break though as I'll be taking two online courses and working.

Ouch, that's quite a lot of work for summer. I think I should try to get an apprentice job, the more experience, the better.

But... why does your sig still says Corky52? =P
3) I want people to remember that I use to be Corky52

Ah, but it's been a while since you changed your username, not everyone remembers Corky52. I think more people remember Fro, though. :)

I had no idea the Sir wasn't something you liked in your name. ;_;

And to be honest, I'm not that much of a big fan of ''Nuts'' anymore either. I mean... when I hear people calling me Nuts in TF2 in their mics, it feels so... childish. Even if the meaning is balls, mad or nuts itself, it sounds weird.

Either way, I'll keep it since I haven't any better ideas.

EXCELLENT!

just. paste. the. link. Don't turn it into a text-link, leave it as a URL. Simple enough, even grandpa can do it! Then everyone can see it's a link and follow it, whether they're reading in a browser or notepad!
This is why I usually read the whole post before quoting it. Then I click the links and remember what was in them. Easy like that. ;)
I don't have time to read entire posts before quoting. I scan, I open a buncha reply-w/-quote tabs while scrolling through pages of a topic, and then I amass them in notepad for later posting... I mostly read as I'm replying, in notepad... where the link is GONE if it wasn't a URL. Which is why I hate text links and love URL links and use them 95%+ of the time, I'd say. #;-}>

Makes sense. I use notepad for catching up as well, but I usually type everything in the NG posting box itself before organizing everything in notepad.

But yeah, I scroll through posts, read part of them and CLICK THEM LINKS! :)

I'm not as into metal as I am into classic rock, but there's nothing wrong with being into both, man.

That the way it should be. I don't have any problem with music genres, I don't really like labelling them. There are two labels for me: good music and bad music.

gfox also recommends teh Muse, and is hoping to see them live in March. :::nods:::

I also recommend Muse. I have already seen them live, and I'm proud of that. =)

Even though they might not come back here anytime soon... they said they didn't really like playing here, apparently they almost died in Rio de Janeiro, I think.

Heh, I really like respawn now. It was weird at fisrt, since i was more used with CS, where you die... and that's pretty much it. But now, I can happily die and think, "meh, I'll have to wait 10 more seconds :)".
I can't believe Bahamut had to counsel you on the wonders of the respawn timer. #;-}>

BTW, long before CS there was Doom, Doom 2, Quake, Quake 2, Unreal + the Unreal Tournament games... and in all of them there was respawn.

CS was somewhat of an aberration.

Sure, but it made you think more before rushing recklessly into the enemies' base. This is why I enjoy the Arena maps in TF2 :)

And the only CS I've ever played is insta-respawn Team DM, basically, which is even funnier, given all of that. #;-}>

Insta-respawn in CS? Never heard of those...

Set yourself a goal:

Full catch-ups before post # 12,000. What do you think?
Well, I think that's probably going to happen naturally... but that's not that big of an accomplishment, since I might not hit 12,000 posts for months from now.

Pace up, come on!

Something like that...

And little gfox would be...?

You should give a listen to "Rock And Roll" and "Black Dog". They're a lot better than Stairway to Heaven.
WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA?

Look, Black Dog is a great song, but I really wouldn't say it's better than Stairway. As for R&R, it definitely isn't. Part of this is just that I'm so damned tired of that song after the last 5 years of it being used in 80% of Cadillac advertisments on TV here in America, but... ugh... so tired of R&R.

Well, I don't get many advertisements with Led Zep songs at all, so... =)

But really, Rock and Roll is possibly my favourite songs from them. I really like that "heavy-blues" style in it. I've listened to Stairway a lot, but I only got into Rock and Roll more recently. So... yeah, maybe I'll change my mind about that when I've listened a lot to R&R

Until then...

Dave Grohl (drums) + Taylor Hawkins (vocals) + Jimmy Page (guitar) + John Paul Jones (bass) =

Now, isn't it a huge incompetence to leave a set of metal pillars right next to a curve exit, where the athletes are at nearly 100km/h, and still blame him for the mistake? I haven't heard of anyone dying like that, and it's still his fault? Really, that makes me mad.
