Re: FFXIII-2

The paradox endings isn't the "true ending" though I read they plan to "finish the game" with DLC (so FFXIII-3 not happening :P) and are working on a big Lightning episode :D Sazh sucks BTW, spent all morning gambling to complete his chapter then find out he's a sucky Synagist that costs way too mu...

So..circling around... Just got off the phone a bit ago. I got the job. They will be sending me the written offer in a week or less once the class details are finalized.

Re: So it finally happened.

I rarely use recipes myself, I mostly use books as a guide for idea's. Though if I am trying something completely different, I will usually follow the recipe the first time and then if I like it, I will modify it from there. That said, a book that everyone should have. http://www.amazon.com/How-Cook...

*nod* I do A TON of cooking and the type of oil, fat etc you cook in has a very large impact on flavor. For example, if you want the flavors of vegetables to stand out when cooking them in a pan, you use something neutral like grape seed oil. I cook with quite a bit of olive oil, but that isn't the ...

Re: Dub and DVD reviews

Right.

I meant to add that I appreciate a good Dub, but generally prefer the Sub. too much gets lost in Dub translation most of the time. Not to mention a large portion of the english voice actors they tend to hire are utterly terrible.

Re: Dub and DVD reviews

I am on the fence as well..a Good dub, is a good dub and some dubs are better than the original japanese. Lets be honest, some of the japanese voices can get really irritating.

However a Bad dub can utterly Ruin a great anime, examples? 4kids dub/editing of One piece. One of the worst Dubs Ever.

By episodes do you perhaps mean plot? Or stories perhaps? I think the T & A was supposed to be an acceptable substitute.

Any of the above lol..I actually didn't even know there was a second season until today.

Terrible/nonexistent plot/story.
Worse acting
