I have not played D&D however I would really love too. I want to run a druid, wizard, or arcane archer in 3.5 when I get the chance. I have recently got into a group that plays Dark Heresy at my university, and it is a blast so far.
The story of the series is incredible, I definitely recommend these games. They involve time travel so there is a lot of mind fuckery and overlapping events as the characters go through a story that spans many centuries.
I don't think the crystal was destroyed, if it was Gaia would have died. Necron was summoned from the hatred of Kuja and the violence occurring on the world at that time. Necron would have destroyed all life in the universe whereas destroying the crystal would have just killed everyone on Gaia...
If their findings are confirmed by other researchers it will be very interesting to see where these buggers fit on the tree of life, how the different species down there interact with each other, and a myriad of other things. I have been waiting for years for the low down on Vostok's microbes...
Actually the meteor would have wiped out all life on Earth, not just Midgar. He wanted to make a crater larger than Northern Crater (which was many miles in diameter). The meteor would have devastated the planet so completely that it would have required the entirety of the Lifestream to fix it...
I can pick my five favorite but it is much more difficult to pick an order for them after that. So in order of release my favorites are I(NES original), IV, VII, IX, and X. A special shout out to V and VI are certainly in order though. I just love that series so dang much!
How, if you don't mind me asking, does one get unbanned? Is it like an appeal or something? I wondered if it was possible or not as I had seen names I recognized after seeing them get the hammer.
OP: I had one warning for taking some off color humor a little too far.
Way back when, like the better part of a decade, my dad found a copy of Mischief Makers laying in the street and brought it home for me. I never had an N64 until I bought one late last year and seeing as it was the first N64 game I ever owned I played it first.
I played through the entirety of FF VIII my first time without knowing you could hit the trigger on Squall's gunblade every attack, dramatically increasing his damage output. They teach you how to do it in the beginning of the game but I must have forgot or just not been paying attention.
