Fan of the RM series since 95, even if I only ever finished something in 2k, VX, and VX Ace. Lover of pasta dishes, popcorn, and carbonated beverages.
Dogs > cats, but cats don't suck.
I'm old enough to have grown up with a rotary phone in the house.



What are you thinking about right now?

I think we need to call the Ghostbusters. Or use google translate/babelfish and hope people aren't flagellating themselves.

What Videogames Are You Playing Right Now?

Craze you remind me that I'm still in land 3 of EO4 many months after getting it. Agh that stupid fire and ice puzzle dungeon.

Also I see you mentioned 13-2 but I'll withhold my comments on possibly the most poorly designed level up system I've ever seen to myself. (At least the actual game was fun to play)

What are you thinking about right now?

Good point. As much as I loved Avatar, I'm not too blind to realize that the story is completely derivative (Hell, forget the Disney's Pocahontas similarity; Mr. Cameron additionally borrows plot and story from T2 and Aliens and the machines look strikingly familiar. I suppose if Cameron had to rip someone off, there was nobody better than himself).

It's my understanding that Avatar is basically Dances with Wolves in space. (A very bad dumbing down of the plot, but still!)

Also Cameron ripped off some guy for the Terminator movie and got sued. Lemme go find out who actually wrote the original story... ah, okay. It was actually a trio of short stories by Harlan Ellison, but yeah.

Look who got an acknowledgement as a "thanks to the works of" on the movie!

Night of the Living Dead Phones

This is the phone I have now

I keep meaning to get a smart phone at some point, but... if I want internet I'll just go on my computer? Also, the actual keyboard on a phone, I'll miss that. I've typed a message out for my mother on her iPhone a few times, and I do NOT like using touch screens for texting.

Horrible Fanfic Crossover Idea Generator

"Your challenge is to write crossover fanfiction combining Top Chef and Jeopardy!. The story should use alternate dimensions as a plot device! "

"The answer is... this dessert." Paula Deen said, licking her lard-moistened chops as she salivated over the decadent showing displayed on the screen. Life was tough after her show had been cancelled, but when Trebek had gone on yet another drunken escapade, she was more than happy to fill in.

The thin Asian woman in the middle buzzed in. "Who is the Top Chef?"

Paula nodded. "That's right. $800 to you!"

"$800?!" the contestant asked. "But I'm the Top Chef! I cooked that dessert!"

"Yeah, I know..." Paula muttered. "But that's why final jeopardy shall be... A BAKE OFF!"

What Videogames Are You Playing Right Now?

Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea, PSO2, and Minazuki's Treasures: ReImagine.

What are you thinking about right now?

Why are we, as humans, so prone to procrastination?

Long time lurker, first timer

Also, apparently there are cookies after you reach 3k ms (and I assume every 3k ms after that). Take it as extra motivation! I mean, what motivates a person more than the extremely vague possibility of cookies?

The advice you are giving me is at odds with the advice that your status-thingy is giving me. I'm conflicted! ...but, cookies.

Long time lurker, first timer

Thanks for the warm welcomes, everyone! I figure once spring semester is over, I'm going to start on a fresh project and see how it goes. I'll also be sure to join in any of the contests that pop up here and there.

(Also, I'm mostly joking about my 'advanced' age, although my 31st birthday IS coming up a bit too in the same day as my one final. Again.)

Long time lurker, first timer

Figured I'd finally register an account and say hello to everyone rather than being one of those people who just siphons off games to play any runs.

Anyways, the name's Gleason, and I'm an old fart (exaggerating...I hope) who's been tinkering with the RM series since I was a freshman in high school and found the life-changing RM95. While I've at least worked a bit with each RM program that's come out, I haven't really ever released anything until VX came about, and even then I abused the auto-gen dungeon tool.

The games I did finish for friends to play have a bad habit of running far too many MP3s if you know what I mean have a unique blend of humor and gameplay, but I think they'd need some tweaking and QC before I'd want to release them to the crowds.

Anyways! While I taught myself BASIC when I was um...much younger than I am now, I don't feel like I could manage to learn Ruby as well as I need to in order to write my own stuff. However, I do seem to have retained a knack for reorganizing others' code to get it to do stuff I want it to do (such as Yanfly's ACE menu splitting the MP/TP into 2 separate bars, or MOGHunter's battle result script giving exp to reserve battlers and showing their levels as well).

TL;DR I'm going to stop lurking and maybe start contributing or something.
