I Want To Say Everything

Damn it all to hell! Just when I think the song has left the public conciousness forever, P.O.D's "Youth of a Nation" has to come on the radio and ruin my day.
Tomorrows Spider-Man day, and it better be good. Granted, it's based on one of the most popular comic book characters of all time, so it should be good, right? Then again, it's directed by James Cameron, so that's ample reason to worry.
No time for a segue! On to letters!
Jowls you could store softballs in.
Recently the prices of some GBA RPGs here in Canada has been confusing me. Here's an example:
BOF II sells for around $29.99 is the U.S. and sells for $39.99 in Canada. But, Tactics Ogre Gaiden is advertised to sell for $39.99 is the U.S (in a few days) but $59.99 in Canada.
For Canada, that's a $20 difference in the price of one new game versus another. Isn't that unusual? Why does the price of one game change by a factor of 1.33 coming across the border, while another increases by a factor of 1.5? Is there some reason these prices are out of whack?
The world of videogame prices is a lot like the fantasy world of Twin Dolls, Hentai animé extraordinaire, where women turn into werewolves if you don't sexually gratify them properly. It is a world were things are, but they are also not. The dog will go to his master, unless it rains. Then, it will crawl under the porch and roll over on the dead fish. The dog is the gold standard; the dead fish is that whore Andrea Mitchell. Games get exported like hotcakes, and sometimes local retailers like to slather on a little extra Aunt Jemima, if you know what I mean. (Which you DON'T!) Cut the rates by .25%!
How you like that? Where's my damn check, Martin? I'm going home and do lines of cocaine off of the erect member of a Chippendale's dancer.
CC: I'm starting to miss having Megaman as my financial consultant. Point is, game companies monkey with the prices sometimes. [Naive]I wouldn't be surprised if retailers sometimes padded a little something extra onto what they call "the exchange rate!"
In a quickie today, a game called Baldur's Gate, was mentioned. I am
interested in it, but I'm afraid I don't know anything about it. I was
wondering if you could tell me what it's about, etc?
Ok. Here's my last question. I've been playing Lunar: Silver Star Story
Complete for the first time. (Yeah, I know, it's been out for forever, and
NOW I'm playing it. It's my brother's game, what can I say?) Anyways, I've
gone through the Cave of Trials to get to the magical city of Vane, gone to
the Magic Guild, and done the story there. Now, I've left Vane, and am going
through to the Nanza Barrier. I'm currently at level 15, and the monsters
are HARD. I'm not a big fan of leveling up, but I have been trying. Since
this is the first time I'm playing this game, I was wondering what level I
should be at for the Nanza Barrier? Should I spend a few hours leveling up,
so I won't have to worry about it later on? Oh, and please try not to have
any spoilers. Thanks! =) If my questions don't make it to the site, could
you please reply anyways? Thank you very much.
Baldur's Gate is a PC RPG developed by Bioware based around 2nd edition Dungeons and Dragons rules. The game is very different from your standard console game, allowing you to build virtually any kind of character you want and, while having a linear plot, being very open ended and filled lots of sub-quests.
If you like D&D, then you'll love Baldur's Gate. Even if you don't play D&D, it's still an awesome game.
You should maybe consider leveling you characters up a bit. (Level 17-18) The random battles in Lunar are more difficult than your standard Console RPG, and repeated X-mashing may not just get you through. With patience, comes rewards.
