"Is the Calvinst Doctrine of the Perseverance of the Saints Scripturally Defensible?"



Posted Image


ouch. some kind of western civ or philosophy course? I took one of those a few semesters ago, but I think I ignored the book we had to read on Calvinism.

An excerpt from this damn essay that I'm actually writing, but will be absolutely done with soon (thank God):

The result is that constant capital will be increased dramatically, but because labor will be less of a necessity with more efficient production techniques, variable capital will increase at a diminishing rate (Marx, 628).

So, is the XBLA version of Ikaruga in HD, or is it just the same as before? Basically, is there any reason to ditch the GC version? I could not care any less about co-op modes or achievements...


The IGN review says it's "A solid translation of the Dreamcast-era graphics.", that "looks largely the same as it did years ago." So I'm guessing it's Ikaruga in 720p without a whole lot improved.

I s'pose I can try the demo. If it's just upscaled, well... then it's a definite no-purchase... and that's what it sounds like.

Please contact me for permission before you use this on the back of the box of your new J-RPG:

The duality of destruction and creation characterizes the nature of the heat generated in tapas. Though it may destroy a sacrificial object or enemy, the heat also purifies them, so that they may ascend to heaven—meaning they have been created anew or reborn.

Nah, it's for our dogmatics class since I'm still in that whole "training to be a pastor" gig. The answer to the paper's topic is "no" but I'm guessing I have to flesh that out a bit.

Chac, I might quote you in this now. ;)

May 22 this'll all be over...

Plus, add in the DRM nonsense, and it's a pass for me as well. I'm fine with my GC version.

You have to quote me, because I came to the same conclusion that you did (No), but I did it before you.



Lucky for me, the stupid History of Economic Thought paper I'm doing now is due tomorrow, and I'm really just fixing up minor stuff at this point... and it's the second draft of the paper, so really, it's not very important. That damn class' papers will finally be over after this.

Phew.

Cool, I didn't know you were doing that. My last day of the semester in may 18th, but I'm sad--only one semester left after this one :( but the last one will be great--a really easy sociology course where you don't even have to show up (which is good, because I'm tired of sociology), a modern Japanese lit course, a Japanese cinema course, and a class about Taoism.

Ok, my initial hype for Ikaruga 360 is now flaccid. Since I suck @ achievements and can't find anyone who plays when I do, I will stick to my GCN version. Yay Wii. Or Whee Wii.

Gawd. Can't wait till Thursday when my exams finished + the project in my sig is finished, then I can finally start playing games again. I've been itching to reinstall Carmageddon 2 or Deus Ex.

I agree, my happiness level will increase tenfold when this month is over and I'm done with school for the semester.

Hey GGT,

I was going to take a break from posting (due to all the stress I had lately), but had to come back because it looks like I was involved in a trading scam here. :-( Many others were too so I had to post and provide what I know. Sucks because I was really hoping I'd never have to do this. I was waiting for payment for a while, but never received it. This loss certainly sucks, but thankfully it wasn't as big as some. Now, I'm a little iffy about trading again. :-(

In college related news, I did get my week 13 checkoff today, so I'm now at 250/250 points, which is half of 500 points total in Senior Project Phase II lab). All I need to do is pass the final presentation (along with doing draft oral and report, along with final report) and I should finally be able to finish college. My posting and gaming will be kept to a minimum for a while, in order to accomplish this.

Anyway, no gaming for me on Sunday due to project stuff. Today, I did play some Sega All-Star Tennis (PS3) and unlocked more stages and stuff. I'm really enjoying the game a lot more than I thought and love all the Sega classic stuff contained in the game.

Also, welcome to the GGT bornrunnin31 (another one of my good PSN friends). :D

I've decided to broaden my horizons on CAG and poke my head into various threads. 8-)

To post something game related, picked up God Hand this weekend at CC but haven't had a chance to touch it. Everyone online seems to bash ign's review (they gave it a 3/10). I'm just hoping its sorta similar to No More Heroes in the story/humor aspect.

Make sure you drop P3 in the mail before you end yourself. ;)

I played very little video games today. My dad had some heart surgery(not open heart) and got stints put in and arteries cleared. It was rough. Then I had to ship a controller and get some packaging material for the WWE Ultimate Fan Edition sets for people. I did get my white DS3 and one of three slutty plastic figures. It started rough, but ended up being great. More so my dad is doing well and went from 25% heart function to 75% today. This trumps my day when I got my TV. It is like I am getting my dad back, again.

I wanted to play God Hand, but I kept passing it up. My turn-off is not the IGN score, but the difficulty (I suck at many games, like CoD4 for instance. :-P ).

I haven't played many games lately due to time. I'll get back into it later.

I haven't played a game in almost two weeks, and I have no desire to do so.

I thought I was bad going one day without playing a game.

It sucks because I'm busy with college and have to deal with filing complaints tomorrow, if it works. :-( It looks like the scamming was much worse than I thought. Everyone in the GGT has to see this.

TMK, if human mode in DMC4 gave you trouble, Godhand will melt your ps2.

Oh, man, I freakin' got so mad and throwed it out the window. The game disc is still in okay condition, it should work, so I'll send it out on Saturday.



Ahem, anyway, I finally finished that damn econ paper, so that class is finished now... and I sure as hell won't miss it.

And of course, I shipped out P3 Monday morning.
