It's Welsh, and god help me, I don't even have a modern Welsh dictionary, and I'm not up to looking up gwreiddiol, which I know I know (something about roots?), in the GPC, and some of the others just look wrong because, well, they're modern.

But I think he is suggesting that everyone needs a thread that's something about roots, maybe? And then there's something about this being the one to get the prize or maybe the win.

And he wishes us luck.

I need a dictionary . . .

Now, see, that's just slander from a Scot. Welsh has lots of vowels. In fact, W is a vowel. Sometimes.

You Scots are just jealous because Welsh mutations make more sense then Gaelic mutations . . .

I'm Cajun, so getting "back to my roots" involves making something really tasty for dinner.

Beyond that, I'm Polish and Irish, so either way, I've got good food and eye-watering beer, if I ever decide to drink beer. :)

That's all, but I wouldn't call it a telling off, I'd call it a friendly warning. If you like it here show you value it by taking the warning seriously, I didn't get the reason this was posted or the other thing that Jenna deleted and I have been on all day. :)

My neighbour of 35 years is Welsh. I'd ask her for some tidbits but she left for Florida last week. Besides, she married a Scot and probably forgot all her Welsh.

I can get picked on by anybody. I'm Acadian (the Nova Scotia variety), Irish, Scottish and Mi'kmaq. I'm very confused. And I drink. Because I'm very confused.

My family was a bit of everything in western Europe. Welsh, Irish, Scots, English, German, and French (most of whom fought with one of the others at various points in history). And I'm half Chinese.

You can all aim everything at me. In fact, some people thought I was a dark-haired white person and some did think I looked part Asian. Both my older sister and I have received comments that we looked part Hispanic. Don't know how that happened. My Dad insists that we aren't part Hispanic.

Actually, the Japanese have an additional symbol set called "hiragana" which are used for verb endings and a few other things. If the character set you are looking at lacks those, it is Chinese. The Chinese text takes the verb form from context. The usual joke is that Japanese and Chinese people cannot talk to each other, but they can pass notes. (I studied Japanese for three years, but still cannot speak it.)

Several members are fluent in foreign languages, and English may be a second language for some, but they exhibit good manners by posting in a language other people understand. That's probably why they joined an English-speaking site in the first place.

(We have an excuse. I's 1:30 am where I'm at. :D It is pretty dork though....)

How dare you! I've been trying reallyyyyyy hard to forget that ending! I've moved on to bigger, better things(FF12...) and now you have to reopen that recently healed emotional and psychological scar! I'm stealing all your gil then flinging it at you until you flee!

(Perhaps we SHOULD consider sleep...?)

YOU consider sleep. I've written four thousand words today, I just did another two thousand, and I'm not done yet. I got dem deadlines...!

That ending killed me. Absolutely killed me. NOT a good ending if you're a hopeless romantic deep down.

But I played all the way through FFX-2, just for the perfect ending. And you can find it on YouTube pretty easily. ANd it makes me all misty again. *sniffle*

The whole "throw money at the bad guy!" was as stupid as the guy who you could keep paying higher and higher amounts to. I think we did it once and went "screw this!" and kept going. We had Al-Bhed dictionaries to collect, damn it! We had Blitzball to get good at!

That's a good chunk of writing. I only wrote a mere thousand today. I know, I know, slacking...

I'm a closet hopeless romantic. Everyone found out what I really was after I bitched about the ending and stayed in bed for 3 days.

I've only gotten the semi-good ending for X-2 so far (I HATE the Bevelle 100. HATE.) I played through it once before learning about the GREAT ending, so now I'm playing again (with an additional Cat Nip, of course)

I hated that guy. O'aka or something. Penny pinching bastard.
I LOVED Al Bhed. I could speak in Al Bhed. But then, I got rusty. :D Le Blitzball! I still suck at Blitzball, but my love for it will stay forever....

My wife had a notebook full of careful notes. Before we found out we could get Al-Bhed dictionaries in the game and it would transate the dialogue, she had it all mapped out. She could use her rosetta stone notebook and translate any passage of dialogue for us. It was fascinating.

Before I discovered all the Al Bhed dictionaries, I found a letter by letter translator online and printed it out. I could read all the dialogue without the dictionaries. It was fun and I'm a geek.:D I have journals filled with Al Bhed entries and everything.

If you want a REALLY heart-breaking video game ending, play the original Shadow Hearts game. The ending to that one was just as bad, if not almost worse, than FFX. It still burns me up, just thinking about it...

It still burns me up, just thinking about it... The tiny person inside who secretly loves heart-breakers says, "Buy it!" and is jumping for joy, but my hard exterior says, "Err...I'll consider it." The tiny sappy chick usually wins. :D

If it's worse than FFX, I'll have to play the ending when I have the house to myself (sobfest).

It's a quieter ending, but it's no less heartbreaking. And the fact that you know it's coming doesn't help one little bit...

(also, it's pretty cheap these days. That helps too. It's a bit older now. It's one of the best RPGs I've ever played.)

FFXII is a magnificant game. It's easily the best looking Final Fantasy game ever. And it's set in Ivalice!

FFXII is a magnificant game. It's easily the best looking Final Fantasy game ever. And it's set in Ivalice! Oh yeah, I'm looking for this one. Cheap AND heartbreaking? It's MINE. I could probably find it at the pawn shop. They have a whole collection of slightly older games for every system in existance.

FFXII is a REALLY good game, and much longer than some of the others. The graphics are INCREDIBLE and the game is so fun to play that I end up staying awake all night to play it. (44+ hours put into it since Christmas, on top of being busier than hell. Ohhh yeahhh.)

It's cheap,it's heartbreaking, it has a lot of really odd humor in it (the sequel has two gay frenchmen who show up now and then to sell you items) and it's actually a pretty long game. You're seventy-five hours into it, you reach a climatic scene that you think is the end.....and then it just keeps on going and getting better.

With edge-of-your-seat-almost-endings....*dreams of her gaming future* I hate games that finish up after 3 hours or don't have a good plot. And fighter games. I can't play them (the first Inuyasha fighting game was the only expection.)

But a good long game? I get hooked very easily to those (I LOVED the Zelda series. All those fun temples and mini-games. Ahh....)

A wonderfully long game. It's like a game and its sequel rolled perfectly together. Seventy-five hours was just part one. And the second game in the series was even longer and more interesting (I mean, it's got Rasputin and Anastasia in it. The second one that is. How can you go wrong?)


My wife and I took 140 hours to beat the first one. We're thorough but we're fairly quick too.

Sounds like one of the few games where the sequel is suiting to the story and not just an add-on. Usually sequels are very disappointing.... (Hehehe I named an old cat of mine Rasputin. That brought back some fuzzy memories :D I loved Anastasia. Don't tell anyone *pops collar and clears throat*)

My only problem with FFX was how hard it was to be thorough. I like to do as much as I can as quickly as I can in games. With FFX, it was almost impossible for me. Ayah.

140 hours sounds like a dream to me. So much playing ahead.

PS judging by the number of responses, no one seems to think this thread is THAT rude...

I didn't say the thread was rude, I said it was rude to post in a language most members don't speak.

Several members are fluent in foreign languages, and English may be a second language for some, but they exhibit good manners by posting in a language other people understand. That's probably why they joined an English-speaking site in the first place.
(Pssssst...I think the idea was to challenge those who were interested to translate the statement. You know...like...a game?)
