@Twilight Crow: meh, all I did was put the three names into Google to find any possible connection between the three. The only Dickens I've ever read is A Christmas Carol, Oliver Twist, and A Tale of Two Cities. I have a copy of Great Expectations lying around, but i couldn't get into it for some reason. :/

Sorry, someone had to say it.

i'm only surprised it took this long for someone to do that, lol. also, Slime Forest! I haven't played that in years. It was kinda fun, as far as freeware educational games go. :3

took two years of French in high school... didn't keep practicing, though, and if you don't use it, you lose it. I understand a little bit of Spanish (not enough for conversation, but enough to read signs and understand what people are asking for at work and stuff), and I understand and can speak some work-related and conversational Japanese. i can also read kana, and i've picked up some common/low-grade kanji, too.

@Stuffgamer1: did I say he died? all I said was 'defeated'... the only one talking about 'killing' is you re: Lavos, and you're right -- with as many endings as CT has, the assumption that Lavos goes down in all of them is false, and so it's hard to spoil that game by just giving the name of a boss. :P

@Stuffgamer1: i don't think killing Lavos is any more a spoiler than defeating Smithy in SMRPG or Sephiroth in FFVII at this point, lol. ;) you're right, i probably don't have any point of reference, but where the PSX is concerned, loading time kinda came with the CD-based territory back then, y'know? you kids nowadays and your instant gratification and lack of patience in general... why, back in my day, we had to wait a whole five minutes for each new map to load in our games, and we liked it! it gave us time to go put the dog out or grab a drink from the kitchen! **shakes a gnarled, withered fist and continues yelling about young people on her lawn** :P

also, thanks. :)

@Stuffgamer1: i've never lived/stayed for a prolonged period of time anyplace north of Virginia (and it was only Galax, which is still pretty close to the North Carolina border anyway, lol), so what does 'pedestrian Maryland' mean? does it differ from just plain 'Maryland' somehow? :3

@Stuffgamer1: why does everyone have problems with FFChronicles' load times? i played the hell out of CT in that release. it was the first time i'd ever played CT, and I loved every minute of every single ending I busted my hump to get. I really think people are exaggerating, especially considering that many PSX games had to wait for loading.

that aside, I'd certainly call it 'saturated', especially in light of all the good games out there that have never seen a re-release at all. Squenix may be 'morons' for not continuing the series, but that does not make consumers 'morons' for not re-buying what they've already got or for not re-buying what they may not even have the right system to play. I don't buy games to support multimillion dollar game companies that dangle continuation of a series over my head (and considering that I really did not enjoy Chrono Cross, there's no telling whether or not I'd even like whatever new sequel they came up with) or to court potential investors for said multimillion dollar game companies. I buy games because they're good and because I want to play them. If someone who thinks along the same lines as me doesn't want to re-buy Chrono Trigger for the DS because they already have the original cartridge or the PSX version, it doesn't make them a moron.

@theblackdragon: There is when it gives Squenix low enough sales to decide to give up on the series again. :(

but how is that the consumers' fault? if they were giving us a completely new chapter in the series, that would be one thing, but CTDS is still a re-release. the market is pretty saturated where Chrono Trigger is concerned. they can't base interest in the series on sales of its latest re-release alone; that would be moronic.

Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in this history of mankind.

Mankind -- that word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests.

Perhaps it's fate that today is the 4th of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom, not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution -- but from annihilation. We're fighting for our right to live, to exist. And should we win the day, the 4th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice:

"We will not go quietly into the night!
We will not vanish without a fight!
We're going to live on!
We're going to survive!"

Today, we celebrate our Independence Day!

yes, i drink occasionally. it's fun to get together with friends and chill or go out for a movie and have a drink with dinner beforehand. how much I drink at a party tends to depend on what kind of crowd i'm hanging out with and whether or not i'm welcome to stay the night, to be honest. :3

for you guys saying you don't understand people who decide to imbibe on occasion, here's a tip: don't rag on the friends you have that do if you're out at a party or someplace where you knew there would be alcohol in the first place unless you don't really want to hang with those friends anymore. a true friend will respect your decision not to drink and will not pressure you to drink anything alcoholic, but in turn they will not appreciate you complaining every time they reach for a sip of their beer.
