SOPA Bill Passes! (…Well, For “Russia,” That Is)


Russia’s ‘SOPA’ Passed By Lawmakers
Aggressive new anti-piracy legislation that allows for sites to be rapidly blocked by ISPs upon allegations of copyright infringement passed through its final two readings in Russia’s State Duma today. Lawmakers fast-tracked the controversial legislation despite intense opposition from Google and Yandex, Russia’s biggest search engine. Following upper house and presidential approval, the law is expected to come into effect on August 1.

After many years of doing almost nothing to stop the spread of unauthorized materials online, the Russian Government recently introduced a draft bill proposing one of the toughest online copyright regimes to be found anywhere in the world.

The proposals would see copyright holders filing lawsuits against sites carrying infringing content. Site owners would then be required to remove unauthorized content or links to the same within 72 hours. Failure to do so would result in their entire site being blocked by Internet service providers pending the outcome of a court hearing.

Last Friday, 257 lawmakers in Russia’s State Duma voted in favor of the bill during its first hearing, despite outcry from Internet giants such as Google, and Yandex, the country’s largest search engine.

It was hoped that amendments proposed by the tech giants aimed at making the legislation less punishing on innovation could be introduced before the bill’s second and third readings. Today those hopes were dashed when lawmakers fast-tracked the bill and had both readings in one day.

The result is a law that allows copyright holders to complain directly to the courts if infringing material is found, even without first contacting the website in question. If the rightsholder wins his case and the content remains, the site’s IP address will be blacklisted by Russian ISPs.

The blocking of IP addresses, which can be shared by many sites, is terrifying web companies.

“This approach is technically illiterate and endangers the very existence of search engines, and any other Internet resources. This version of the bill is directed against the logic of the functioning of the Internet and will hit everyone – not just internet users and website owners, but also the rightsholders,” a spokesman for Yandex said in a statement.

“It’s like forever closing the highway, on which there was only one accident.”

Controversially, the original version of the draft bill proposed that all copyrighted content would be covered, but due to last minute negotiations only movies and TV shows will be included for protection. However, further negotiations are expected in the summer to expand the law’s reach to a wider range of content.

The law is expected to come into effect August 1, following upper house and presidential approval.

-- It's baaaaaccccckkkkkkkkk!!!

Just when you thought that the Russian Government couldn't get ANY worse than it already has been now, especially with the whole "Edward Snowden" thing, "Anti-Gay rights bashing" -- and now this! Like the gentle evening breeze that quietly blows through the night, SOPA once again rears its ugly head as President Poo-TANG and his glorious regime unleashes it all for his wonderus people to see.

*sigh*

...What the hell happened to you, Russia? You used to be cool.

So, "Why should any of you care about this?" Because. Now that the SOPA bill has re-emerged and passed in the good ol' land of the former Soviets, what's to stop the U.S. government from bringing and slightly tweaking that same bill to make it pop up again for the rest of us? Perhaps they'll see the "shining" example set by the Russians and try and stuff it down our throats once again.

Also, I'm deeply concerned and saddened for the entire Russian population. With their country already going through a ton of unnecessary garbage at the moment -- "this" then manages to happen to them! In a matter of mere seconds, many lives who depended on the Internet for all their daily means of life are now suddenly forced to take a back seat.

This also REALLY effected me substantially as one of my main music sites where I collect most of my incredibly bad-ass tunes for most of my games are now all but gone now (thanks god I already have a custom musician and most of my songs were bought already or I'd be SCREWED)!!! I've used that wonderful music site of theirs for 5 years now. And I don't think I'll ever find a better place for such inspiration and the wonderful music that comes from within it.

Also, what about the fate of the original forefather of the original RPG Makers, "Don Miguel?" I'm sure he's dead now (or in jail) :(

You guys can also officially "forget" about all those Russian translations for your games, now. Which means, no more "Hero's Realm: Kremlin Addition;" "You Are NOT The Hero: Featuring Maria Sharapova;" and "Monopolo: THE RED, BLUE AND PUTIN ADDITION FEARURING THE AMAZING VOICEOVER OF ALEXANDER OVECHKIN!!!" :(

[Poll] “Leave No Soldier Behind” *salutes* (Need Opinions On A New “Running Away” Mechanic)


A Soldiers Main Prime Order: Never Leave Anyone Behind.

So when it comes to most role playing games that involve the player escaping from combat because the situation isn't in their best interest (ie: low level; lack of recovery items; bad status aliments, like "poison"; need to save the game before angry parents cut off electricity; it usually involves selecting a command from the menu or, like in most classic Final Fantasy games, holding the shoulder buttons down while waiting for your teammates to finally flee.

In most RPG Maker games, the first option usually applies here; you basically select the "Run Away" command and based on your dexterity level will determine if you can successfully run away. Simple enough! It has been that method since the very dawn of time.

But I want to change that because, frankly, it's a bit too unrealistic for my taste.

Now, I know what you're all saying, "What'cha talkin' about, Addit? Who cares about all this sort of nonsense! Who cares about realism when it comes to "running away!" It's a bloomin' fantasy game, for heavens sakes! All people seem to care about 'round here is some fancy ass graphics; awesome ass characters, blah, blah, blah." But even a little feature to an already overused mechanic can make the world of difference.

So here's my idea:
(No rock throwing OR bonfire torches)

Like in every setup when the player is in need to flee from battle, you would select the command like you normally would. However, in this sort of setup, the conditions for running away changes, depending on:

A.) How many characters you have in your party.
B.) The type of status aliments reflecting off those characters.
C.) How many enemies you are fighting.
D.) The general weight of those characters.


Let's do a couple of examples, shall we:

Example 1:
Party Size: One
Enemy Size: One
Status Aliments: None

Results:
- The party can run away with no serious issue here, because it's an one-on-one fight and both party and enemy have no viable status aliments that's harming both of them.

Example 2:
Party Size: One
Enemy Size: Four
Status Aliments: None

Results:
- Because the enemies outnumber the party by a lot, the party won't be able to get away. Unless they clear some of the enemies down, they'll just have to fight through it. (or, to make things a bit more fair for the player, use a "Smoke Bomb" sort of item, via FF6, in order to get away)

Example 3:
Party Size: Two (Teenage Slim Boy; Petit Girl)
Enemy Size: Two
Status Aliments: Girl Is KOed

Results:
- Since the party count is technically down to 1 because of the KOed member, the party can't get away because the boy can't leave the other member behind. However, because the girl's weight isn't that heavy, the boy could always kill off one of the enemies and escape, or revive the girl or use a smoke bomb related item to have the chance to get away.

Example 4:
Party Size: Two (Teenage Slim Boy; Petit Girl)
Enemy Size: One
Status Aliments: Boy Is KOed

Results:
- Even though the party has the majority advantage here, the boy's weight is far too heavy for the girl to pick up and run away with. She won't be able to escape unless the boy is revived or a smoke bomb item is used.

Example 5:
Party Size: Three (Teenage Slim Boy; Petit Girl; Build Middle-Aged Man)
Enemy Size: Two
Status Aliments: None

Results:
- The party has the majority; they can escape from battle.

Example 6:
Party Size: Three (Teenage Slim Boy; Petit Girl; Build Middle-Aged Man)
Enemy Size: Two
Status Aliments: Boy is KOed

Results:
- The party can still get away since both sides have the same equal amount of members and the build middle-aged character is strong enough to pick up the boy and escape.

Example 7:
Party Size: Three (Teenage Slim Boy; Petit Girl; Build Middle-Aged Man)
Enemy Size: Two
Status Aliments: Boy is KOed; Build Middle-Aged Man is Paralyzed

Results:
- Since the build middle-aged man is under paralysis and the girl is too weak to carry both of them, they can't run away. The girl need to heal the paralysis off the build middle-aged man since reviving the boy isn't going to be enough because he can't lift the build middle-aged man up with his overall strength alone.

Example 8:
Party Size: Three (Teenage Slim Boy; Petit Girl; Build Middle-Aged Man)
Enemy Size: Three
Status Aliments: All characters are poisoned.

Results:
- The party can still get away with no problems. Even though everyone is poisoned, they still will have enough strength to get away.

Of course, you could still factor in the "dexterity rating" and other matters, but I thought that this was a pretty interesting way of handling the running-away scenario. If this idea has been done before in another game, then I apologize because I guess I haven't heard of it. If not, I want your opinion, "Is this a BRILLIANT idea or a STUPID idea?"

Oh, and for the people who came for the "Free Pizza,"

Fan Factional Story Time: How Lita Lecotta Lost Her Job (Rejected Fan-Fic)

NOTE: This was a “rejected fan-fic” that I submitted sometime around two weeks ago. After talking with Kentona & Solitayre about it, I felt that I didn’t want to just “toss it away” or “keep it to myself,” since I put a lot of hard work into it. So I decided to share this all with you on the “Creative Corner” section of the forums. It’s a long read. But if you’re a fan of Ara Fell and know more about the “behind the scenes” history of the series – you might be in for a bit of a chuckle.

It’s a bit similar to my other fan-fic in terms of the style and setup.

Oh well, enjoy the show! :D

After the success of his latest endeavourer in the virtual world of game making,
young master Radluck prepares for his most dauntingest of tasks:
A sequel, to one of his most “beloved” creations world over…

However, little does he soon realize,
that the business sides of things can sometimes be a “bitch”.


DISCLAIMER: There is some minor profanity & mentioning of brief sexuality in some of the scenes. Just a heads up!


Inside the middle of a hightower office building, a middle aged man is typing something on his laptop while a “familiar friend” carrying down a lunch tray cart opens the door…

???:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*wheels the cart over to the desk*

Hmph… *ahem*

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

???:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
...
*gazes his head up*

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

???:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*sigh*
…Yo, bitch, tea’s here, get it while it sucks.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

???:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Ah – ah – ah – more politely –
and with much more enthusiasm please, Mr. TFT.
I also want to see “big smiles!”
*smiles back*

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*angered tone*
F*** that, Radluck,
this is already as degrading enough as it already is,
serving you this shit, and all.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Oh?
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*slams hand down on the desk*
I don’t care if you’re the motherf**king pope
or the Jesus H Christ;
I don’t grovel to anyone – not even you!!!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
But TFT, ol’ buddy, ol’ pal…!!!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
I ain’t your buddy.

Besides, what “buddy” of mine would just pay me
“minimum wage” for doing this kind of crap!?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Of course you are my bestest bud!
I mean, without you, who’s going to be the one
that answers all my wonderus “fan-mail???”

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Pfft…“fan-mail”…
You know the only fan you have is the one
that’s standing right in front of me.
*points to Radluck*

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*leans over his desk*
…Is something troubling you, TFT?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*distasteful grin*
Yeah…
And I’m looking at it…

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*sigh*
Look…I know business has been rather slow,
lately, ever since I released my last game,
but I’m pretty sure that’s going to change soon,
very soon!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Why? What makes you so damn sure?
You haven’t released anything noteworthy in years.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
True.
But I always considered it a great
“marketing strategy” to just make the public wait
around for a while, make it look like
nothing’s happening, and then – wham!
*slams his hand down*
Instant, stunning announcement!!!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*conniving smirk*
…Sounds like you got a plan…

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*laughs*
There’s a reason why they call me
“The Legend,” ‘ol chum.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
So what is it?
A brand new puzzle game?
New adventure game?

*throws his hands up in confusion*

…Dr. Mario clone???

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*shakes his head*
Nope.
Nope.
Annnnnnd…
we tried that last year, already, remember?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Oh yeah…
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
This time *slams fist*
-- we’re gonna do something new, god damn it!
Something that the public has been waiting for,
for eons!!!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Yeah…
it HAS been eons since the last
stupid thing you last did…

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

*irritated expression*

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*takes a deep breath*
Whatever… Just tell me what it is so I
can go back to working on “Rainbow Nightmare”
again…and again…
*rolls his eyes back*
and again…

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*chuckles* Oh, TFT.
Everybody knows you’ll NEVER finish that game.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
(Yeah, I’d like to “finish” you…)

…So what it is???

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
TFT, allow me to introduce my
newest, bestest creation,
it’s…*interrupted*

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*slams door open*
Hiya, boss – how’s it goin’??? *smiles at Radluck*

*her faces soon glowers down when she looks at TFT*

…Oh, hi, TFT, how’s the secret mistress doing???

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
…Shut up…
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*ruffles through his papers*
Ah, Lita…is it?

I was just thinking about you, right about now...

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*raises her hand up while looking
at her fingernails in the light* Really?
Well, *blushes* can’t complain about that;
I “am” a star, afterall!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Yes…I’m starting to remember all too well…

*crosses his hands on his desk*
…What is that you came for, another raise, perhaps?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*turns his head back*
(I wish “I” got another raise, cheap ass, motherf**ker…)

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*stands up while Lita looks behind her*
TFT, please, this isn’t the right time.

…Can you please excuse the two of us; we have
very important business matters to discuss here.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*angered look* Humph…
Some partnership this turned out to be…

…Now I know how “Karsuman” feels.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Karsuman can go eat a dick;
we’re here to talk about “me,” now, the star!

So why don’t you just beat it?

…By the way, the creepy emo look doesn’t really suit you.
…May I suggest a “garbage bag?”

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*points over to Lita*
…You know, one of these days,
you’re going to get what’s coming to you…

And unlike Karsuman,
I’ll be happy to see you fall down faster than a
rock plummets below the ocean floor.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*raises her hand up and covers up TFT’s mouth*
B – Borrrrinnnnng!!!
You talk too much, hater.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*pulls Lita’s hand away from his mouth;
looks at her with a sharpen stare
before eventually turning away*

Whatever.
She’s your problem now *sarcastic voice*
-- OL’ TIME BUDDY!!!

*door slams as TFT leaves the room, much
to the applause of a live general audience*

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*kicks back on his chair*
…Good ol’ TFT…
He truly is a good friend.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Yeah… *rolls her eyes back*
I’m pretty sure he’s the stuff of legends…

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*gasp* Legends! I know that “word”…
*scratches his chin*
Hmmm…

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
-- Well no shit!
You keep calling yourself that all the time,
even on your, god damn, voice mail.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*kicks his legs onto his desk*
Hey I gotta give the public what they want;

*circulating hand movement*
a man’s who not afraid of failure.

* exasperated look* Pfft, yeah, right…

*perks up* Hey, listen,
I got a call on my cell that you wanted to talk to
me about something, something important?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*gets off his chair* Oh yeah –
I totally forgot! *laughs*
It’s amazing how much time goes by when
you’re making such luscious maps like mine…

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*sigh*
Look…I have to do an “Old Dutch” commercial
for some new shit flavor I’ve never even heard of
– so can we keep this brief?
What is it, already?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Okay, um…ah…
*begins to sweat profusely*

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
...What?
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -


*puzzled look*
…I just never realized how “tiny”
you actually are from up here…

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Kiss my a**…

You’re no prize winning cucumber yourself.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*takes a moment to think about that
before shaking his head and moving on*

…All right. *takes a deep breath*

…Time to get this over with, Radluck…
It’s always the hardest part of any job you do…

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*perplexing stare*
…What “is” your job description, again?
What exactly DO you do even do here?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I…forgot.
Listen, you remember the last project
we worked on together, right?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*counts her fingers in a state of confusion*
Which one? You have to be more descriptive.
I’ve been in so many parody games
lately that I’ve lost count.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*sigh*
…The one that got you famous, stupid.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*sudden realization*
Ohhhhhh – that piece of trash! I remember, now!
“Ara Fell: Legend Of The Dirisetsu Hollow!” That game
was awesome, because I got to be a bitch to everybody!
*smiles*

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
...
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*puts her hands on desk*
Hey, whatever happened to my co-star,
you know, Adrian?
Did he ever manage to get off his drug problem?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*scratches his head*
Um…you know...

I haven’t seen – or heard – from him since
the after launch party…

…He’s probably all right.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*laughs* Yeah, he probably is.

I remember the last thing he told me at that party,
*deep voice* “Lita, you know, if you were over 19
and were an inch taller, I’d probably ask you out.
But since I’m probably gay,
I think I'll go hit on that “other guy” over there…”

…He always did have a thing for “Doran”
during production. *smiles*

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*laughs* Good ol’ Adrian…

…So…very...gay…

-- Anywhoooooo, about that game!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*jumps up and down in excitement*
-- OMG, OMG, OMG!!!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
I think it’s high time that you learn
about the inner workings of my next
“big budget” title!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
OMG – It’s finally happening;
hell has finally frozen over!
Pigs have suddenly learned to fly!!!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Yep…yes it has…

*puts his hand on Lita’s hand*

…You know, I’ve wanted to work on this series
for a long time now…
And now, I think that time is finally right.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*squeals*
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*smiles*
Yes, you have every right to be excited.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
“Excited?” Of course I’m f**king excited!
I GET TO BE IN A GAME AGAIN!!!
-- WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
I COULD KISS YOU IF YOU WEREN’T GAY!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*sigh* …Look, just because Adrian
did that thing out in public with everyone and…
look, whatever, okay.

…Um…also, “what?”

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*chuckles* What do you mean “what,” what?
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Well, um…I…ah…
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

???:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*gently taps on the door*
Hello…? Mr. James “The Legendary” Radluck?
Is…this “his” office???

…It’s so…
much smaller than I thought it would be…

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*turns back towards the door at the new girl*
Huh? Who are you?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lily Cassar:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*startled look* I…I’m Lily.
Lily Cassar.
I’m here to touch basis on the “starting role” in
the next Ara Fell game, the one that’s in the works?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*stunned expression*
“Starting…role?”

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lily Cassar:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Yeah.
*sits down on a chair besides Lita*
…Are you here to audition for a part in the game, too?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*perplexed look as she looks as Radluck
then quickly back to the girl*

Audition…?
Audition for what?

Girly…you must have the wrong office building.

Try downtown next to the big “Square-Enix” building
on the right; that’s probably the one you want.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lily Cassar:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*ruffles through her papers*
No…
This is “definitely” the right address…

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*gets off from his chair in a thrill of
excitement and goes over to shake her hand while
Lita watches in total surprise and awe*

-- Ah, Lily my “greatest creation;”
I’m glad you managed to make it here.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lily Cassar:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*giggles and shakes his hand back*
You drive a “Ford” so I know which one is which.
That’s kinda how I managed to tell what
office building is yours.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*reaches into his pocket*
Hahaha – get used to that shit car --
because you know what?
IT’S YOURS!!! *hands over the keys*

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
!!!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lily Cassar:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*startled expression of contentment *
R…Really, Mr. Radluck? I…It’s all mine???
The whole thing?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
I can’t have my newest creation taking
public transit, now, would I?
Hahahahahahaha!!!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lily Cassar:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Hahahahahahaha!!!

…I actually powerwalked my way here;
good for the cardio.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*gets off her chair in disgust
as Radluck & Lily look back startled*

-- The f**k…???
-- What the hell, Rads
– where’s my new Ford???

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lily Cassar:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*turns to Lita*
Mr. Radluck sure is nice, isn’t he?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*turns over to Lily*
Nah – he’s a dick!

*suddenly turns to face Radluck*

THE HELL IS THIS!?
THE HELL IS THIS BIMBO DOING HERE!?!?!?
WHAT DOES SHE MEAN “STARTING ROLE!?”

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Ooo…yeah…that’s right…
…I forgot…

…Lily, can you fill her in on the details, please?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lily Cassar:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*classy accent*
Cer-tain-ly.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*swoons* How’d I ever manage without you
in this business?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
The hell…?
You never showed that type of affection towards “me!”
F**king piece of cracker, eatin' trash!!!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lily Cassar:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*shows her a white piece of paper*
Didn’t you get the memo?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
What “memo?”
*reads the memo and points to it while looking at Radluck*

What is “that???”

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
It’s a new three part deal for
the next installment of the series.
She’s going to be a big star!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
What, “this” thing? *points to Lily*
J – Just look at her.
*laughs* She clearly doesn’t have the same charm
and sex appeal as I do.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
But she's taller!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*brief kicking motion*
So is my foot in your ass.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
She’s got natural hair!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
My hair “is” natural!!!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
She’s more prettier!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
F**k you!!!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lily Cassar:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
I also speak more than six different languages;
have a masters in engineering and acting; and I also
used to be Miss Spokesperson for “Kitzo Cookies”
– they’re the “snackest!” Want one?
*hands Lita a plain, lightly salted cookie*

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*brushes the cookie onto the floor*
F – F**k no! W…What the f**k, lady?
What is your problem?
Don’t you know that “I’m” the star?
*points to herself*

…Please tell me that she’s the villain?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Oh, no – she’s the hero, alright.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*slams her hands in a fit of rage on Radluck’s desk*
How could you do this to me, Radluck?
OR SHOULD I SAY, BADLUCK!!!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*faint voice from outside Radluck’s office*
-- Burnnnnnnnn!!!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*points to the door as Lita & Lily look back*
God damn it, TFT
– get the hell outta here!!!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*slowly commences himself through into the room*
Hehehehe…

You guys are such “douches!”

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
...
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*sigh*
…Look…I’m sorry, all right.
I…I should have contacted you about
all this, and stuff…

It’s just…
it’s just that we’re moving into a “different direction,”
and I don’t think you fit at all with it, Lita.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
W…What are you trying to say???
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*hands Lita a pink slip*
…I think he means “you’re fired.”

*takes a long look at the pink slip
before slowly raising her head up*

F…”Fired?”
Me?
No…No…!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*puts his hand on Lita’s shoulder
as she looks back; TFT begins to slowly grin to her*

Welcome…to the “Unemployment Center!”

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*tears roll down* No…
NO!!!

I CAN’T BE FIRED! I…I JUST CAN’T!!!
-- IT’S NOT IN MY NATURE TO BE FIRED!!!
*begins to sob on her pink slip*

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Hey, hey, now, don't cry; just think of all your
future employment possibilities…

“Walmart…”
“Canadian Tire…”
“The Oprah Winfrey Show…”
*pulls her forward to look at his face*
-- “REGIS!!!”

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
!!!

*turns to Radluck*
...B…But I’m the “Slayer,” the star...

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lily Cassar:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Don’t worry, Lita.
I’m pretty sure you’ll find work outside from here.
There’s lots of room for old video game hasbends,
like yourself…

Um…
“Super Smash Bros???”

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*throws her chair back, via “Bobby Knight” style
as Lily quickly gets up off her chair and moves back
with TFT is smiling in the background*

YOU BACKSTABBING B**TARDS!!!
YOU’RE ALL SCUM TO ME!!!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
…Even “meeee?” *points to himself*
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
-- Damn it, TFT, you’re just making
this whole awkward situation even worse!
-- Get the hell out!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*puts her hand on TFT
as he begins to leave the room*

No… You know what, TFT, stay. Stay right here.

*turns over to face Radluck*

You know what, Radluck…?
You know what I think of you now?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
That…I’m “awesome?”
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Oh, yeah *sarcasm*
-- that’s gotta be the million dollar answer
to the million dollar f**king question of the year!

But you know what…?
You’re an a**hole!
I hope this project fails along with you with it.

*slowly edges close to the door
while looking back at TFT*

…TFT?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
…What is it, beanpole?
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lita Lecotta:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
…Go eat a dick...

Can…can you drive me to the “Walmart?”
I need a new job…

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

TFT:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*smiles as he holds her hand*
It would be MY pleasure!

*they both leave the room as the door
closes behind them*

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

*puts his head on his desk*

That was the hardest decision I ever had to make…

I hope I made the right decision by letting her go,
with no “severance pay,” and all that.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lily Cassar:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
*pats Radluck on the back*
I’m sure you did the right thing…

...Besides, she had no “boobs”.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Yeah… Yeah, you’re probably right.

…You know what? Let’s order some Pizza;
my treat.
*searches his drawers for a phone book*

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lily Cassar:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Make sure no "anchovies!"

…So, when we are starting
“Ara Fell: First Light?”

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Radluck:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -


*scenes begins to fade out*

Just as soon as I can win another Misao…

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

And so,
Miss Lita Lecotta was forced to take leave of her former watering hole,
as young master Radluck was tempted to go into a brand, bold new direction for the series!

A direction…of promise and epic adventure awaits our newest slayer: Lily Cassar!

…As for the fate of Miss Lita Lecotta, the former slayer?
Let’s just say...that there’s a wet spill on aisle three,
and somebody is need of a hero!

...Luckily for her, she’s actually getting “paid” decent wages, this time.

Vidya Games You’re The Most “Competitive” At



"Low Level With No Items?" B**ch, please! Ain't nobody impressed by that MINOR spectacle!


So, a lot here mostly play games for fun. Others, like more of a challenge to go along with their six inch steaks. And there are just some people who are too dang good for their own know-how that SERIOUSLY need to get outside! (or at least try out another bloody game)

"Competitive Gaming".

I'm pretty sure there are at least a few games that most of us would find that we're "exceptionally" good at and could probably beat most people without even dropping an eyelash shadow. So I want to know what type of games you're mostly good at, and which ones you just excel the most at. (and they can be RPG's, too)

For me, the only three games I seem to be even remotely competitive in is "Panel De Pon," "Mario Kart," and, of course, "Super Smash Bros." I wouldn't say that I've the "best" -- but I'm better than the average joe.

Okay, your turn.

Mr. Kenton Anderson:
A Belated Birthday Poem

A Short Poem Written By: Addit
Proofread By: Addit

Fondled By: Addit

It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these…
HERE GOES NOTHING!!!



Mr. Anderson, Mr. Anderson.
Your Birthday has come and past.
And so too, does that belt on that rather crude strap.

Mr. Anderson, Mr. Anderson.
Lord and master of all “Real Men”.
But why is he no master of the “Woman?”

Mr. Anderson, Mr. Anderson.
Proud maker of “Hero’s Realm”.
Where’s be the second realms?

Mr. Anderson, Mr. Anderson.
Huddled in bed.
Where he be hearing “Visions & Voices” instead.

Mr. Anderson, Mr. Anderson.
Off to Vegas!
Where is wife goes, he surly “hates” it.

Mr. Anderson, Mr. Anderson.
Is that your real color on your head?
Or are you just “balding” instead?

Mr. Anderson, Mr. Anderson.
Has so many things.
Even I wouldn’t care to dream.

Mr. Anderson, Mr. Anderson.
Always a ladies man.
But never could ever get his garden tool to open his shed.

Mr. Anderson, Mr. Anderson.
I’d best better stop.
Or the banhammer might suddenly drop.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PUMPKIN!!!

"Do people REALLY act like this, especially as something as trivial as in a video game?"

While searching the "intertubes," I managed to stumble across a couple of "fan-reaction" videos when it came to the live unveilings at this year's "E3". While I must admit that "I" was definitely delighted at some of the showings, I found a couple of "these" types of videos to give me that utter feeling of embarrassment, like...really made me ashamed to be a gamer in general just with these teenage boys "screaming like a little candy, ass b**ch". Now, this is probably because I'm not as much of a gamer that I used to be (and I'm guessing the same can be said with pretty much all levels of media), but...how does somebody get so..."worked" up over something like this? Yeah, I guess it's normal to be all excited over a brand new video game that you've wanted to see for quite some time -- but is this your first initial reaction, to "scream" like a little girl all over it?

For example, when "Mega Man" was unveiled as a new playable character in the new "Smash Bros" game, I definitely had a smile on my face and said to myself, "All right. 'Bout bloody time," and proceeded to move on my merry way. I never went all "ape-shit" over him being in the game despite him being my most requested character. But with the way this kid goes all over it...pretty much puts my general reaction for him being in the game to shame. Is there anything wrong with acting out like this? Maybe I just don't quite understand, growing up in a household with all men and being centered around the universal fact that there's a difference between acting out your emotions -- and actually "really" acting your emotions.

But for his defence -- including others of this sort -- what about when people, like me, get all "excited" about a stupid hockey game, or a basketball game? Isn't that same? Well...I guess so. But even I wouldn't go as far as to get "this" excited (unless my team wins a championship). Or maybe...that's just normal for someone who cares as passionately about his love for video games.

What do you guys think? Is there anything wrong with acting like this, pulling a "nerdgasm?"

(BTW, I had no idea that word existed until tonight.)

Which RMNer(s) Will You Be Sleeping With Tonight?



Night time has come.
And so has the day.
It soons gets you wondering,
"Will 'I' ever get laid???"

So here is your chance.
Just one, glorious chance.
To pick somebody from the site,
For a night of mister wrong and mister right!

(Or, if you're a girl, "miss' wrong" & "miss' right" ^^)

For tonight, mawk shall be my first victim!

He just seems like a real cuddler, he is. :P

"RMN doesn't like him enough to give him a user title. :( "

Come on, people, it’s time to give Ratty524 a brand new "User Title" that he can be proud of!

Come on, guys! This man has more meekerscore than me, has made freakin’ “Tina Of The Stars” and the legendary “Are Pee Gee Maekur Vee Ex Ayce” – WITH SUCH CLASSICS SUCH AS THAT, WHY U ALWAYS IGNORE HIM, REAL MEN???

So I’m proposing a petition to give Ratty524 the username that he always wanted – and I will not take “maybe so,” or “I’ll think about it later” as an answer; I want it changed NOW!!!

So, what exactly can we give him as an appropriate user title that won’t trickle the censors?

My pick: “Always a rat but never a marsupial”

What The...???

This is weird...



So I was just looking at my "game subscriptions" and noticed that I have "Cosplay Crisis" subbed "twice!" After snickering a little inside, I thought I would just go and delete one of the subscriptions to bring it back to one but...



Hmmmmm...

I mean, I like "Cosplay Crisis," and all, but not that much. X_x

Does this happen a lot with certain game subscriptions?

[Poll] How Much “Planning” Or “Prepping” Do You Do Before Starting Your Game(s)?

So…I haven’t made a “real topic” about general game design – or anything – for a loonnnnngggg time! So – why not make one now? And here’s a good one:

“Planning” and “Prepping”. For some of us, we like to make sure we’re fully prepared before going down for the long haul. And for others, some people just like going with the flow and worry about all that other stuff later. Whatever’s your style, let it be known here!

I usually like planning a game for about a month or two before even starting to touch the editor. I always make sure I finish the title page, gather whatever music I need, write down most of the story / dialogue the characters will say to each other and decide what gameplay traits the game will have before DOING anything. Sure, at times, I wish I could just start the bloody thing. But then I always find myself back-tracking during the game’s development and spend an extra week or two fixing something that could have been avoided if I just planned everything through.
