I've never been more tempted to snag my friend's 64-bit Vista disc... Either that or just buckle down and get Windows 7 already...

Edit: Found the 32-bit beta drivers.

Or rather, Hokuto no Ken because I'm watching it in Japanese. Kenshiro is just plain badass!

This is ironic, sorta, but we used to have a Chilis which didn't do very well then it ended up turning into an Olive Garden.

As far as restaurants go, I love the local places. I love Olive Garden but Rosarios has this pesto sauce that keeps me coming back! As far as pizza is concerned, right across the street from OG is Kaleidoscope. Hands down the best pizza in the state with a full service bar (with my favorite microbrews on tap) and they let you sample the beer for free. We're not talking about a little taste, but enough for 2 full gulps!

For burger places, there's Eddy's which has the juiciest and biggest burgers in town and a blackberry shake that's to die for! Another good place is "The Store", which isn't really a burger place but it's a convenience store that just happens to make burgers too!

Okay, so Italian and American don't sound that appealing? How about sushi? There have only been two good sushi restaurants in the valley and Genkai closed two years ago, so that leaves us with... Bonsai Teriyaki. The place doesn't look like much on the outside (or the inside for that matter) but their sushi is 5-star. We're not talking about a dollop of salmon on a wad of rice, they serve a generous piece that's flowing off of the sides of the rice, barely held on by a piece of nori! Not only are the portions large but it's prepared quickly and tastes fresh and delicious! The bentos and tempura dishes are also amazing!

Good Indian food is probably the hardest to find in Medford. India's Palace looks nice but it doesn't hold a candle to India Kitchen, which is this little place tucked over in the far side of town. Indian buffet, to be precise. The curry and chicken satay make my mouth water!

Speaking of buffets, the place I work now has the best Chinese buffet that you'll find! King Wah has been in business for over 60 years and the recipes haven't changed a bit. We offer a cheap all-you-can-eat that just plain amazing but the real deal is when you order off a menu... I haven't picked a dish yet that I don't like

Final Fantasy 14... Unfortunately, I couldn't get the Limited Edition like I wanted because Gamestop was like "Durr, we're not doing any more preorders on them lolol". It was bullshit.

Well, I get the standard edition now and I join the game 8 days after everybody who got the Limited. Oh joy... /wrists

You do realize how tempting it is to call you that now, right? I will refrain, though, out of respect of what you asked me not to do.

The second installment that is online only, Final Fantasy 14 does things differently this time.

For starters, you don't technically choose a class as much as you choose a weapon. Different weapon types have the classes attached to them, so equip a polearm and you're a Lancer, equip a pickaxe and you're a Miner, equip a bow and you're an Archer, and so on.

Instead of the traditional grind for experience points, you have two experience bars at a time, one for the "class" that you are at the moment and one Physical Level bar that is your standard experience pool. How the game is set up is that no matter what you're doing, be it killing monsters, fishing or blacksmithing, you will always gain experience points! This means you can achieve the highest level by farming mining nodes and making cool weapons! With the class's bar, it goes up whenever you make use of its proficiency, which makes it gain ranks!

The graphics in this game are also amazing, bringing even my pc to its knees at about medium settings while still looking outstanding! I'm guessing in my particular case, my CPU is bottlenecking the performance, but it's not huge issue. An i7 processor and an Nvidia 400 or Radeon HD 5800 card is recommended for smooth play!

I'm not sure what to say about the community yet, as I haven't honestly taken the time to socialize, though my assumption is that it is much more of a mature fanbase than that of WoW because of the returning FFXI players (great fanbase from experience).

This title is much more straightforward than FFXI was, more user friendly and is SOLOABLE! That's right, you don't need to wait around for ages to get a group!

I'll report back later once I've played a bit more, I still have a lot left to cover!

Edit: I'm technically not supposed to be able to play for another 8 days, but I got a guest pass from a badass on Gamefaqs. That made my day!

I've gotta say, I feel 100x more badass playing a Lalafell than I ever have as a Tarutaru!

I even have a goatee!

Well, I've basically been playing it nonstop and I've still been able to level just fine, EASILY more than 8 hours, so I'm thinking that it was just a rumor.

And yes, Lalafell are the freaking best!

A beautiful ghost
Stunning, entrancing,
No matter how hard I try,
I can never speak to you

A lovely apparition
Gorgeous, fascinating,
No matter how hard you try,
You can never keep me from caring

A graceful revenant
Pleasant, alluring,
No matter what we try,
We can never agree

A forlorn phantom
Gloomy, miserable,
No matter what you try,
Your heart is in agony

I'm still of the opinion that particular rules and types of fights should be between the people simbattling, though some fair general rules are always welcome to point at if people get in a disagreement. They honestly shouldn't be there for any other reason.
