    I'd watch out - I fought Igniz several times in KoF 2001 - he is a cheating bastard with those infinite whip lashes...

    Right, can one honestly say to be proud of being a Japanese, German, American etc.? If one can, then what would that mean?

    So there is something you have to control to begin with, right?

    You realize talking to people like this makes you look like an ass right? It's fine if you don't let yourself get provoked but the whole "I've trained my body and mind to resist trolls" just comes off as silly.

    Just to say even when I lived in Japan around 2009, the opportunity of finding rare games at good prices in Tokyo had already come to an end. I'm not sure when things changed but probably around the second half of that decade (when I was there around 2003 you could still find good deals), things transitioned pretty fast. It used to be game shop owners from around the world coming to Tokyo to pick up good deals, but once online stores and ebay sellers started doing the same it just sent the prices way up, way too fast.

    That's the impression that I had when I went there in 2015. Well, guess I will have to just buy stuff in eBay. Thanks for the information!

    high-end games are most costy in Japan - low to mid-level stuff will be most likely still cheaper in Japan than eBay.

    What's wrong with that, why can't you be proud of your heritage ?

    Do you think Mongolians are ashamed for what Genghis Khan did ? Or better yet look at the Italians, they are one of the proudest people and they hold no shame; even though they started the whole fascism/Axis shit and then flipped sides.

    Every culture that exists to this day did indeed massacre others to become what they are today, but that doesn't mean we should be ashamed of our heritage.

    Racism is a highest form of ignorance, but internalized racism is just plain nonsense. You can be proud of your heritage and not be racist.

    I am of Iranian origin and I love Iran, but I also love USA. I don't even hate Trump either I respect his gangsterism.

    but anyways enough with this jabroni half and half mumbo jumbo; @rodolfocm can you cop me some used officewoman panties bro

    I once fought and beat up 17 guys with nothing but a chair and a step ladder, but you don't see me flexing about it on a bunch of 30 year old guys on a 20 year old forum about a 40 year old Japanese video games.

    I've seen those panties for sale not just in vending machines over there, might pick a few up as souvenirs for family.

    I always wonder how they make those panties, there's no way in hell those are really "used". Probably sprayed with some sort of chemical produced in the Worcestershire Sauce style.

    I pity the fool who not only gets off to that but actually deposits money in that machine
