[02:47:47] --- ChanServ gives voice to Crysta
[03:12:25] <wizardrydragon> Howdy Crysta
[03:12:42] <Crysta> hello mr. half-hour reaction time person
[03:12:49] <Crysta> whats up
[03:13:01] <wizardrydragon> Pain.
[03:13:03] <wizardrydragon> You?
[03:13:23] <Crysta> hating a game company
[03:13:26] <Crysta> not much else
[03:13:33] <wizardrydragon> Oh fun shit.
[03:13:40] <wizardrydragon> I had surgery yesterday :\
[03:13:46] <Crysta> ack :x
[03:14:14] <wizardrydragon> indeed :x
[03:14:51] <Crysta> (and coincidentally, avoid the GBA game Sonic genesis like the plague.. oh wait.. no.. that would be badmouthing the plague.. this is FAR worse)
[03:16:07] <wizardrydragon> Ah
[03:16:11] <wizardrydragon> Only plague level?
[03:16:21] <wizardrydragon> it hasnt gotten Microsoft level yet?
[03:16:24] <Crysta> far beyond
[03:20:17] <Crysta> it amazes me that sega was completely unable to even handle the porting of a first-generation Genesis game to GBA
[03:21:13] <wizardrydragon> LOL
[03:21:21] <Crysta> im serious
[03:21:57] <Crysta> it plays like a flash or shockwave remake of the game
[03:22:00] <Crysta> only.. worse
[03:22:26] <wizardrydragon> It doesnt shock me.
[03:22:36] <Crysta> because unlike a flash or shockwave remake would have.. this has jumpy animation and slowdown every second of the game
[03:22:38] <wizardrydragon> There are programmers lazier than me
[03:22:43] <wizardrydragon> Believe it or not.
[03:23:04] <Crysta> yeah except you arent putting your stuff in stores worldwide and charging $35 for it
[03:23:43] <Crysta> god that pirate NES sonic game plays better than this
[03:24:27] <wizardrydragon> LOL
[03:24:34] * wizardrydragon strokes his chin
[03:24:43] * wizardrydragon plots evilly.
[03:24:51] <Crysta> i dont think i could even promote rom sharing of this
[03:26:00] <wizardrydragon> Woah
[03:26:02] <wizardrydragon> Thats pretty bad
[03:26:10] <Crysta> the sprites are all 1:1 scale of the originals.. and yet.. they have DITHERING
[03:26:58] <Crysta> if you have a GBA emulator and want to see just how bad it is i can give you a link to it without even feeling a tiny bit of remorse
[03:27:11] <Crysta> and the game came out 2 days ago
[03:28:10] <wizardrydragon> Lol
[03:28:20] <Crysta> seriously
[03:28:23] <Crysta> want it?
[03:28:28] <wizardrydragon> I am going to assume it goes in the category of roms not worth getting an emulator for
[03:28:32] <wizardrydragon> So dont worry about links
[03:28:32] <wizardrydragon> :D
[03:28:38] <Crysta> lol
[03:28:47] <Crysta> its always handy to have a GBA one aaround tho
[03:28:59] <Crysta> never know when dumbasses will decide not to translate a damn good game
[03:29:07] <Crysta> like Mother 3 >|
[03:30:10] <wizardrydragon> Heh
[03:30:37] <Crysta> i want to kill nintendo for that one.. delay a game over 10 years then decide not to translate it.. grr..
[03:31:45] <wizardrydragon> Heh
[03:32:02] <Crysta> let me guess.. no idea what im talking about
[03:32:04] <Crysta> as usual
[03:32:21] <wizardrydragon> Mmhmm
[03:32:41] <Crysta> Mother 3 = Earthbound 64 if that helps any
[03:33:05] <wizardrydragon> Er not really.
[03:33:10] <wizardrydragon> I dont follow consoles that much.
[03:33:31] <Crysta> still should have heard of Earthbound
[03:33:47] <wizardrydragon> Nope.
[03:34:24] <Crysta> my second favorite RPG series after Ultima
[03:34:57] <wizardrydragon> Ah.
[03:35:04] <Crysta> 3rd is Dragon Warrior/Quest, 4th would be Chrono Trigger, 5th would be Final Fantasy and its best not to go any farther than that
[03:35:15] <Crysta> big downhill dropoff from there
[03:35:43] <Crysta> and thats every final fantasy before 7.. the games have been fairly craptastic since then
[03:37:43] <wizardrydragon> hah
[03:38:03] <wizardrydragon> My favourite series (other than Ultima) is still Baldur's Gate
[03:38:21] <Crysta> and i still have yet to play that
[03:38:21] <Crysta> lol
[03:38:36] <wizardrydragon> You should.
[03:38:56] <wizardrydragon> Marzo and I have had lengthy discussions about how good a game it is
[03:38:57] * wizardrydragon nods.
[03:38:58] <Crysta> have you ever played super smash brothers for N64 or Gamecube? random question yes
[03:39:03] <wizardrydragon> Once.
[03:39:20] <Crysta> Ness is the hero of Earthbound if that rings any bells
[03:39:23] <wizardrydragon> My ex had it and was addicted so I had to play it.
[03:39:29] <wizardrydragon> ah.
[03:39:42] <Crysta> finally a spark of recognition
[03:39:43] <Crysta> lol
[03:39:46] <Crysta> i hope
[03:40:32] <wizardrydragon> Lol.
[03:40:45] <wizardrydragon> My ex loves Yoshi >_>
[03:41:05] <Crysta> this the gamecube one we talkin about?
[03:41:26] <wizardrydragon> Yeppers.
[03:41:37] <Crysta> then Mewtwo FTW
[03:41:52] <Crysta> kick yoshi's ass ANY day
[03:42:06] <wizardrydragon> Lol
[03:42:21] <wizardrydragon> The ">_>" was not a smilie of agreement with the statement
[03:42:23] <wizardrydragon> :)
[03:42:57] <Crysta> lol
[03:45:57] <Crysta> ill try baldur's gate sometime if i remember :p
[03:50:02] <wizardrydragon> Hehe.
[03:55:54] <Crysta> so anyway how else ya feelin aside from the pain
[03:55:56] <Crysta> lol

[03:56:45] <Crysta> lol
[03:56:52] <Crysta> really?
[03:56:58] <Crysta> i see you as more of a chaotic good
[04:00:16] <wizardrydragon> Lol.
[04:00:29] <wizardrydragon> I mean, not really upset about anything, but not really happy.
[04:00:34] <wizardrydragon> Just kind of ... neutral.

[04:39:17] <Crysta> or.. where
[04:39:20] <Crysta> or what
[04:39:22] <Crysta> or such
[04:40:06] <servus> Of course in UO :p
[04:40:15] <Crysta> ah then
[04:40:18] <Crysta> whatever :p
[04:40:24] <servus> 9-year rewards. They go for 20 million each!
[04:40:32] <Crysta> i have one account
[04:40:36] <Crysta> and its not old enough
[04:41:00] <wizardrydragon> I feel so old.
[04:41:04] <Crysta> and i only have one item that could possibly come close in price
[04:41:15] <Crysta> cuz im poor
[04:41:17] <Crysta> :p
[04:41:27] <wizardrydragon> Are the rewards actually working now?
[04:41:42] <servus> Well I've been 9-years for a few months but my account age was frozen... a lot of people's still are
[04:41:42] <wizardrydragon> Or are they still broke like they were Mon?
[04:41:50] <servus> I only have one account too
[04:41:59] <Crysta> dunno if mine is or not.. it wasnt a few months ago
[04:42:04] <Crysta> how did you get so many then
[04:42:06] <Crysta> or
[04:42:07] <wizardrydragon> Ive had the same single acct since beta.
[04:42:09] <Crysta> mroe importantly
[04:42:17] <Crysta> how frigging rich ARE you T_T
[04:42:21] <servus> Well, I've only used about 10 rewards
[04:42:27] <Crysta> ah XD
[04:42:30] <servus> I got an extra 4 rewards because of a bug
[04:42:36] <Crysta> lol o_O
[04:42:45] <servus> Remember how when rewards first came out, they reset the count used the day after?
[04:42:50] <Crysta> id be worried aobut using those since the game actually keeps track of those numbers
[04:42:55] <Crysta> oh
[04:42:56] <Crysta> yeah
[04:42:59] <Crysta> i do remember that
[04:43:06] <Crysta> my account wasnt even a year then :P
