50% Openness Your high level of openness suggests that you are imaginative, creative, and comfortable with variety and change. But you can also tend towards individualistic behavior and impractical thinking.
31% Conscientiousness You like to act immediately on impulse, which can be both effective and fun. But if taken to the extreme this can produce undesirable long term consequences for yourself and others
56% Extraversion Your high level of extraversion suggests that you experience positive emotions from social situations and activities, so are likely to seek them out and thrive in them.
50% Agreeableness You value getting along with others, so are considerate, friendly, and willing to compromise your interests for the benefit of the group around you. As a result you tend to be very popular.
66% Neuroticism You are emotionally reactive and prone to react intensely to events with feelings that linger for some time. This can affect your ability to think clearly or cope with change and stress.
Emotional people tend to embrace their positive and negative emotions fully, which means they have lives full of excitement. But it’s all too easy to switch between happy and sad very quickly, and it’s important that the highs and lows balance each other. There may be times when you would benefit from stepping back from a situation to protect yourself from getting too carried away.
Thoughtful people have a very giving and sympathetic character and are genuinely interested in and concerned about others. However, they can sometimes lack the persistence to follow through with their good intentions. Luckily, you’re very good at inspiring good feelings and actions in others who can help carry you along too.
You may feel a bit conflicted when you’ve been wronged. On the one hand it can affect you deeply to the point of feeling victimized, but on the other you can be scared of saying something about it for fear of upsetting other people. The result is that your anger might be directed inwards, which is very unhealthy. You can’t always be the nice guy.
Direct people can find it hard to resist their urges and impulses. In fact, when they really want something it’s hard for them to keep their desire in check. If you find it all too easy to sacrifice your long-term goals for instant gratification, or wake up with a major headache the next morning, this might be an aspect of your life that would benefit from a bit more concentration.
You’re interested in the new and different. Whatever it is, if you haven’t experienced it before, you’ll want to try it out. People who share this characteristic also enjoy meeting people from different backgrounds, so thrive in big communal activities where they can learn about new places and perspectives.
People with this characteristic are naturally good-natured and extremely sociable. They are easy to get along with, which means they tend to be pretty popular with everyone they meet. If you recognize this trait in yourself, remember your old friends who have known you for a long time are just as important as those new buddies.
Spontaneous people tend to be pretty full of energy and love the thrill of new adventures. But that energy isn’t always completely constructive. Your spontaneity and impulsiveness might mean that it’s sometimes all too easy to drop those serious, unglamorous tasks for the promise of a good time.
People with progressive attitudes tend to have a great deal of faith in human nature and believe in education, co-operation and free thinking as ways to help develop society. They are willing to try new ideas and solutions and take a thoughtful approach to issues like social problems. It sounds like you tend to be seen as the voice of reason in most situations.
Dreamers get very excited by the prospect of new ideas and ways of seeing the world, but they tend to lose their way in theoretical possibilities and flights of fancy. If this sounds like you, you might be seen as a fantastic starter but not so great finisher. But, no one can fault your enthusiasm and ability to thrive in the uncertainty of the new. Force yourself to be a bit more organized and you’ll blow people away.
Sensitive people are extremely aware of potential dangers and problems around them – perhaps a little too aware sometimes. In fact, they tend to purposefully imagine worst-case scenarios. If you recognize this trait in yourself, rather than let yourself be overcome by fear use these theoretical situations to stimulate yourself to come up with imaginative solutions.

Make sure you scare the shit out of him when you see him. It's tradition.

WKC: You know, some of the plot twists in this game would be pretty good if they were properly built up to. There's just not enough of anything to make it compelling. Kara continues to say everything I want to say to other characters and Caesar continues his running meta-commentary on the game that mirrors my own assessment. Other than that, just kinda goes along. Game isn't really as bad as advertised. It's just... unremarkable. Kinda like FFXII if it were better plotted but had a blander story.
Townbuilding being balanced around online play makes me annoyed. It's actually pretty fun, but since you can upload the town online for other people to use, they made it so you can only max ONE of the 6 aspects/stats of the town at a time rather than all of them eventually, forcing you to either constantly shuffle or go to other peoples' soon-to-be non-existant online towns. Oh well. I suppose it made sense at the time but I doubt it'll be fixed when the servers are shut down.

You won't be disappointed in choosing Good side for inFamous 2 once you get Ice Rockets.

Some anime OP quizzes for people, music only. Mostly to give some people (mostly Andy) something to kill time with at work.http://www.sporcle.com/games/5camp/20-years-of-anime-openings-quiz-1992-2012
The next three are by the same person, so while there is some overlap with the first one, they don't overlap with each other.http://www.sporcle.com/games/amaranth/clip_anime#http://www.sporcle.com/games/amaranth/clip_animeii#http://www.sporcle.com/games/amaranth/clip_animeiii#
52, 42, 42, and 29, respectively.
First one kinda puts you at ease then hits you hard. I was batting .900 in the first half, but the second half killed me. Mrfed at the third one, missed a bunch I should have gotten. Last one is just a killer.

White Knight Chronicles- Not too bad so far. Just kinda... banal and cliche. Combat system coulda been better/more fluid, but eh. Kinda like the townbuilding mechanic.
As cliche as the villains are as well, you gotta respect the blatant and literal Snidley Whiplash moustache twirling.

Hate to burst everyone's bubble on The Mandarin, but a quick perusal of Wikipedia says that his rings are tech-based, not magic (they're magic in a few subseries, but his origin and most of his incarnations have the rings as alien tech). Magic does factor into some storylines, but it usually blows up in his face or ends up actually being alien tech in the end.
But I agree with everyone. The way they did The Mandarin works and was awesome. I have to wonder if Marvel's marketing department is high-fiving themselves right about now. I agree with Snow to a point, but I'm fine with the way they had the villain use terrorism as just a tool in his overall plot. That's why they're villains. They're willing to use ANY underhanded, bastardly, morally reprehensible tool or action to succeed in their plans. Killian WORKS as a modern-day Mandarin, and the nod to the old-school one is fucking fantastic. They could have done classic Mandarin, given the above info, but this is better.

Bought a ton today.
The OMAC Project and Villains United parts of Countdown to Infinite Crisis, plus Infinite Crisis. 52 Vol 1. Fairest 12-15.
Also got through Generation Lost and Identity Crisis last week.
Gotta say, DC is much better when it focuses on the less powerful/iconic.
And Max Lord is one Magnificent Bastard.

Taurus Demon is also a fairly large trek, though isn't too hard a boss (same with Moonlight Butterfly).
Eh? Moonlight Butterfly isn't that far, unless you didn't find the hidden bonfire near the closed gateway in Darkroot Garden. From there, it's only 3 root monsters and a heavy armor dude, maybe about a thirty second walk if you're running without fighting?

If there's a small number of people going, I totes wouldn't mind trying to get into the Blue Bayou restaurant in Pirates.
Also important to remember, though I'm not sure of how SoCal tourist seasons go, if it's anything like Orlando we're walking to peak summer crowds.

Better off going with what people are comfortable with. It's better to have the group be one interested in going rather than just going because other people are.

Family plans have dictated I'm going to Disney on Monday regardless. Since DL can't make a decision, I say we go there. I know Grefter and a few others were interested, so if we can't decide, making the decision for everyone.

GoC6- Finished. So many mixed feelings about this game. Weird, but fun. Not wholly satisfying but pulled me in all the same. They coulda done more but the simplistic nature also helped keep you focused in battle. A bit repetitive/needed some variety but still made you think each time/kept you on your toes. Story worked for what it was. Usual JRPG fare with few good or bad points. Hard to score. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a weirdly different RTS/SRPG hybrid, of sorts.

Orlando -> LAX on United Airlines 719
Departing July 10th 7:24 AM EST
Arriving July 10th 9:31 AM PST
I'll be leaving the LA area Monday the 15th to go down to San Diego to visit relatives. Details of that are still being worked out, but will be flying out of SAN on the 18th. I can give you the details if you want, but you won't be responsible for getting me to the airport.
« on: April 16, 2013, 01:37:38 AM »
Where in San Diego, OOC? My relatives live in Escondido.
« on: April 16, 2013, 01:26:01 AM »
Idun is okay. Called her when I found out. She was about 4 miles away, indoors. Didn't even hear it.
« on: April 15, 2013, 03:11:24 AM »
Change me to a definite yes.
Some things changed. Mom's decided to forgo Europe and visit relatives in San Diego instead around the same time. Would probably be heading down there after the con/theme park stuff.
Monday would probably work best for theme park peoples. Sunday is kind of a mess travelwise and it's not cool to have possible backup drivers away at a park (although I do see the only confirmed flights for Monday >.>) "Thursday before" would actually be July 4th. Con starts on the Thursday<G>
Anyway. Would be up for Disney, Universal, Knott's Berry Farm or whatever. Not picky. Haven't been to the area in forever.

Strider's a good class for Spoiler PC. Her badonkadonk is perfect for Drop Kick.
Also, in Ayesha news. Beat Grand Dragon. Easily the toughest superboss fight in a Gust game I've experienced. No clear and easy way to cheese. Combination of God Miracle Drug, Forbidden Capsule giving the occasional tripleturn, Secret Remedy with lots of buffing, Exa Bomb or Lightning Stern when I could (managed to Blind and Hold him a few times). Good equips though not as good as they could be. Didn't stack Skill Up, Red Power, Soul Words, and Stats + 6 enough. Oh well. Motherfucker is dead when I was on my last legs. Used the last Forbidden Capsule on Juris, attacked twice and Hail Mary'd his Special, heard the music come on, much rejoicing.
