This one needs a funny title.

I suggest renaming to "Doing the Mario all over the Battlefield".

Is FF XIII the one with the girl protagonist, black guy, 2 children, fist fighting guy, and girl with two handed staff thing? If that's the one I played it like two years ago and never finished it...I basically had no idea what was going on story wise throughout the entire experience.

hahah there was no way I was going to remember the names...

I got to the point where something big happens (forgot what...you get like transported to a different land or something) and you basically have no direction...it's this huge prairie or something...as you can see I had no idea what was going on then and I have even less of an idea now.

My room mate attempted to explain the newest Final Fantasy games to me (XII & XII-2?).

My eyes glazed over two minutes in.

He ended the conversation with, "I didn't really like the last couple games... Or this one (XII-2). Well, I'm gonna go play now."

There's one feature for sure each of them have in common above... that they seem to have hit the nail on the head when it comes to trying to pull off Miranda Lawson...



Only the last one appears to be truly pulling off the other key feature though...

BTW - sounds like most retailers are sold out of the CE pre-orders for Mass Effect 3... so if you still want the CE I think you're pretty much just down to Target or Walmart at this point (not sure if they have any left, just didn't see them listed as sold out).

I for one have had my pre-order for the CE from Amazon waiting since July.

Oh mama. I should go for the deke more often, as it seems to work quite well. That's Be a GM with Minnesota Wild, first season, I got Eller and 2012 4th in exchange for Cullen and Miettinen. Game thinks overpayment, I think worth it.

I also traded Brent Burns and Martin Havlat for Steven Stamkos in the draft. I used the 1st round pick for Sean Couturier, and got - interestingly - Zack Phillips in the 4th round as well.

Just nailed Phoenix 6-2 in my ongoing NHL '99 Sharks season.

Wish they had made an NHL game on the N64 that had the Wild in there.

I take it you're not using the current/default rosters then (if you were obviously you'd have Heatley and Seto instead of Burns and Havlat).

I always start the season from the draft day instead of September, because to me, all the managing and stuff is almost better than the game itself.


By the way, I got a trade proposal (I know, they usually suck) from Colorado, and this one is actually quite interesting:

To Colorado:

Pierre-Marc Bouchard
Colton Gillies
Minnesota 2013 5th

To Minnesota:

St. Louis 2012 1st
Colorado 2013 1st
Ryan Keller


I'm very tempted to do it, only that I'd need to find a first line LW if I trade Bouchard. Adding to the temptation is the fact that Ryan Keller used to play in Espoo Blues, whom I support, and I have good memories about the lad. Still, in the game he's only 74 ovr with C potential, so at best an AHL top 6 guy.

What would you suggest, y/n?
