Haha settled. Challenge accepted, Meatloafpig, all of you.

The offer stands anytime over the next three years and ~eight months, minimum, I know it's early to plan but count on it once school starts!

So I just came back from the bar, and saw there were a bunch of new posts, and for a second I got excited and thought people got acceptances today. Then I read the posts... :?

If there's anything that can build up and tear apart a friendship in seconds, it's Mario Kart followed by a blue shell. But it's still fantastic


It's amazing that I have been lurking on this thread for months and the only thing that drew me out was an N64 reference. Anyway if I end up going to Columbia I challenge anyone to a game of smash. No hearts no hammers of course.


No items 5-stock Final Destination.

I was my high school and college champion of N64 Smash but I never got into as into Melee or Brawl (I know Melee is the real competitive shit).


I admire your avatar, sir. There's something charming about pugs, but somehow I can never explain it to another person.

And Venus, don't worry... there'll be some action within a week, presumably next Monday, but I suppose it could be tomorrow. For what it's worth, the ED acceptances started rolling out right after a weekend, if I remember. Pulling for all you guys.

Did you stop gaming due to school or new interests Lavitz? I have a personal rule of not playing games when I'm in school. I wonder how this will work during law school... Summers seem busy in law school and I wonder if I will have the time.

I personally wasn't a fan of XII, I never cared much for the story or the characters. I found the game to be pretty bland. The game mechanics were pretty fun though. I have thought about starting a new game for x, but I noticed that the game displays pretty poorly on my tv. I get a bit peeved, since the graphics in the game, especially the fmvs, are pretty nice.

It was actually after graduation that I made the conscious decision to stop playing. I just felt I should be doing more productive things with my time.

And I wasn't a fan of XII either for the same reasons. Also, as someone who played FFXI for a good three years, the real-time battles were nothing new to me, so that weakened its appeal.

I think I'm one of the few people on the planet that likes FFVIII better than VII. IX is my favorite, but i've only played I, and VII-XI. Of those, my ranking is IX, X, VIII, VII, I. XI you can't really rank with the rest.

Glad to see I'm not the only person here who played XI and whose favorite is IX.


FFXI was amazing. I don't think the rest really compare at all.

Also, Golden Sun is spectacular


I loved DWM. I played the shit out of it when I was like 11 and got it right before making an international trip. I'm surprised you have a working cartridge though - I remember hearing something a while back how all GB games were gonna no longer work or something due to the internal batteries in the cartridges dying after 10 years or w/e.


Yeah, it's a pretty serious issue. One of my friends (whom I used to play it with all the time) had that issue with his cartridge, where it would never save because the battery was low on juice, but then somebody opened it up and changed the battery for him. Supposedly it's not too hard to do. Thankfully I haven't had that issue yet but, when it does, I'll be ready with a battery and a strange, triangle-shaped screwdriver.

And I am so glad to have found another DWM person. That game literally defined my childhood. Are there any other RPGs like that that are worth playing? I figure I should ask being that I have you here anyway

The sad part is I withdrew my app from CLS so I will never be able to pwn you guys at Smash :(

Letters today would make for the greatest/worst weekend.

I think we need to start an Instagram hashtag, #VCE. Let's see how weird vomit looks when filtered in sepia tones.

I know you weren't asking me, but: Revelations for the GBC. Similar gameplay to DWM, different aesthetic.

Just watched a video of the gameplay on Youtube. That looks pretty good. I think I may go for it. Thanks!

HIMYM reference? I love this thread even more. In times of trouble (and panic), let's turn to our alumnus (hopefully) for words of wisdom:

Jumping on this, real quick... I played it, too. I thought a friend and I were the only ones who'd ever heard of it. Will fight the urge to throw sirloin steaks at random animals on the street, in the hopes of taming them...

And to everyone else, it's all good!

Video games isn't a prerequisite for anything, honest! If you're remotely personable we'll get along fine, and I'm sure you will with anyone else. The kinds of things that might preclude you from having friends at Columbia are more like "hating people" than "not having played video games growing up."

Excited to find out who's joining me this fall.

For a (very long) while I also thought me and my friend were the only ones who heard of it. I find it crazy that this game wasn't wildly popular. And I still remember the look on my parents' faces when I asked them what "breeding" meant. God I love DWM

Have you ever tried DWM2? The Cody and Tara ones? I cut down on videogames a lot so I could focus on school but my mental age is quickly regressing and I'm tempted to go out and pick them up


EDIT

Yeah, this says a lot about the kind of people who apply to top law schools, specifically Columbia. Take that, everyone who told me to put down the videogames!
Also, if you haven't tried Golden Sun Dark Dawn (the third one) yet, you definitely should
