Nope, I believe he means the Crissaegrim, which is far and away the best sword in the game. It doesn't sound it from the stats, but it is, because it attacks like, 4 times in less than a half-second.
Along with the Medusa Head Shield, it's my favorite weapon in the game.
Yeah, barring my wonderful spelling, that was what I was talking about. That sword absolutely destroys everything in that game. It has a very fast repeat time, and as Wyrd mentioned, it hits 4 times each strike.
Random thought: I HATE Christmas item scalpers!!! Effin' seeing "OUT OF STOCK" no thanks to some a-holes ordering everything... just when I get paid, too. It doesn't happen any other day, but when I can FINALLY do something about it, that's when I get screwed over. That's TWICE this month, now!!!
Ugh, I just hate them generally. You see it every time a limited edition anything is announced, it disappears immediately off Amazon then they pop up in droves on the marketplace. I remember being so disappointed when the Yakuza 3 PS3 sold out months before release and the only ones left were like, double the price.
Then I found one for regular price used a few months later in Sofmap I was so happy.
The kicker is, that happened to me with a PLUSHIE that I was going to get my girlfriend. A stuffed tiger, that's all!!! And I couldn't even get her the best looking one I could find, I had to settle for less...

I hate it when I have a dream that references something that happened in another dream possibly from a while ago, but after waking up enough that your thoughts become coherent you realize that you never actually had that previous dream that was referenced. That it was all just made up in that one dream.
"Ambition is the willingness to kill the things you love and eat them to stay alive."
I am completely unaware of how to tactfully tell someone off and dismiss them from my life, no matter how deserving of it I think they are. The stress is giving me a headache. I just can't do that kind of thing. Someone teach me to be less of a pacifist. >_<
On a brighter note: I have a truly generous boss at work who bought everyone gifts and a huge lunch from Carlos O'Briens for our holiday party. Totally awesome.

Use the original address, so that I don't have to pay additional shipping (which, as I've mentioned before, is completely asinine -- I shouldn't have to pay additional shipping for an error that I cannot be held responsible for)
However, if you won't incur any additional charges whatsoever, then please send it to my [Babysitting Address] address. It doesn't honestly make sense in the first place, to incur any additional charges for shipping, as I've already paid! I shouldn't have to pay again for a delivery failure. It's only a different town, it doesn't cost any different to ship to the address where I'll be babysitting for MONTHS, than it would to ship to the original address. Thank you.

Hi. You have provided two different shipping address.
Please confirm which you would like the item to be shipped to. Thank you for your cooperation.

I'd hate to be difficult, but I personally believe that I should not have to pay additional for the shipping; I've already paid for the shipping once before! It should not be my responsibility to pay extra for a delivery failure. To be fair, it shouldn't be your responsibility either; have you tried contacting any of the carriers yourselves to see about a refund for their incompetence? Logically thinking, it's like if you ordered a pizza, had already paid for it via credit card, the pizza delivery guy delivers your pizza to the wrong address, and the pizza shop is asking you to pay for another pizza. I'd be fuming, wouldn't you? Alright, how about this: how about you send it to the original address around the 1st of January, 2010? For the re-shipment of my item, here is the exact information for my original address:
1. [Name] 2. [Home Address] 3. [Order #] - Paprika [DVD] (2007) Satoshi Kon 4. This is the original address; as such, I shouldn't have to pay a single penny out of pocket for a delivery error. If you have a different address on file, then that would explain the delivery error. Rest assured, the error is definitely not on my part, as that is the exact address that I had used for this transaction.
If this is not satisfactory to MovieMars.com for some god forsaken reason, then please let me know so that I may request a refund instead, in the amount of $11.91 -- for verification purposes, I'll provide you an excerpt of the Amazon MovieMars.com e-mail I have received:
================================================== Order Details ==================================================
Date: November 14, 2009
Amazon Order #: [Numbers]
1 of Paprika, $8.93*
*above item(s) sold by and shipped from moviemars --------------------------------------------------------------------- Item Subtotal: $8.93 Shipping & Handling: $2.98
If you cannot either re-ship my item or provide me with a complete refund in the amount of $11.91 and not a penny less, well... I don't know what to tell you; it would be completely unacceptable if it didn't work out either way. Again, I'm sorry to make this difficult, but I shouldn't have to pay for shipping more than once! Thank you for your assistance, trouble and understanding. I hope we can come to an agreement soon.

As I have mentioned before, I've checked with the local post office. They are not holding any packages for me, I've already called and checked.
Alright, thank you. Here is the information you have requested for the re-shipment of my order:
1. [Name] 2. [Babysitting Address] 3. [Order #] - Paprika [DVD] (2007) Satoshi Kon 4. The shipping address is different, because I'll be babysitting at this location -- and we'll be celebrating Christmas at this location, so nobody will be available at the prior address until January, which for confirmation purposes, is: [Home Address]
Thank you very much. I will look forward to the resolution.

I’ve personally checked the status of your order and would like to let you know that it did ship out from our warehouse. I apologize for the inconvenience and lengthy ship time. On rare occasions, the US Postal Service (USPS) incurs delays with shipments; packages are also sometimes held at your local post office for you, without a notification letter. *Please note* if you have moved - the USPS does not usually forward media mail.
Since it has been an abnormally long time, however, I recommend the following:
Please stop by or call your local post office to inquire as to whether they are holding a package for you; if they are not, I'd be happy to authorize a re-shipment of the missing item(s) for you. A reshipment to the same address is at no cost.
In order to process a reshipment, please provide ALL the following information in a reply email to me so that I can ensure this second shipment makes it to you without problems.
Please provide: 1. Your full name 2. Full shipping address 3. The item #(s) or title(s) of the items you are missing 4. If this shipping address is different than the first one you originally gave, I will need to know the reason for the change. A fee may be applied for this service.
I will begin processing on the re-ship of your missing items as soon as I receive the above information from you. Thank you so much for your patience and once again, I apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you.
Thank you for your business. ---------------

A week? The item left your warehouse on 11/17/2009. Tomorrow, it will have been a whole month that I've waited for my movie to arrive; it's quite overdue. I had contacted my post office this morning to have them check for me, and they're not holding anything. I have also called DHL to see what was up with the tracking number that your company has provided me, [Tracking #]. It was linked to DHL's website, and they have explained to me that the tracking number was for your website, not theirs. So I had attempted to track it through your website, and this is what I got:
>Your Info... > > ...was not found at this time. > Why no tracking information available? > > A. International shipments (outside the U.S.A.) CANNOT be tracked at this time. > B. There has been a slight delay or error in fulfilling your order at our warehouse. > C. Please check back tomorrow for more updates. > > If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to Contact Us. > Thank you for your business! This worries me. I'm usually patient, but not knowing what happened to my movie is making me anxious. Do you have a tracking number I could use for DHL's website or USPS' website? DHL explained to me that when they transfer carriers, a tracking number for USPS should become available. I've never used DHL before, so this is all pretty confusing for me. Thank you for the quick response, and I know it's professional to apologize; but it's okay, it's not your fault. Thank you for your help!

According to our shipping records your order shipped and should arrive anytime. I know that this delivery is already past due and I apologize. I ask that you please wait a few more days for it to arrive before we consider it lost.
In the meantime, please consider contacting the post office as sometimes they hold things there or they may be able to give an idea of when it will be delivered.
If your order does not arrive within a week, please contact me for your options.
I apologize again for the delay and thank you for your patience!

Yeah, a month ago. I loved the movie, so I bought it. And it hasn't even freakin arrived yet! Their customer service representatives are IDIOTS. The fact that I have to practically copy and paste my messages over and over and over again to get a point across, isn't really helping their case. They're asking for additional shipping fees for the lost mail -- but I'm like "nuh uh, it's not MY fault the mail got lost, so fuck off!"... that's like if you ordered a fucking pizza and the delivery driver ate it, yet you'd already paid for it. So when you call the pizza place up and ask where it is, they ask you for more money to make the next pizza. Is that right? Fuck no, it isn't! They have your money, but what'd you pay for? I'm not wasting money just to get pissed off, I'm spending money to have a fucking good time! So where's my fucking movie? XD

#1 - starving at the moment
#2 - Rock Band Unplugged store sure has quite a selection. Too bad I don't recognize a lot of the songs or artists. Just downloaded Still Alive since it was free. :P
#3 - Damn you, Sony! You require people to install all sorts of bloody software just to do anything on your freakin' PSN site! >:(
And wow, Unsavory, those guys aren't budging when asking to deliver to the original address. o_O;;; What kind of dumbass customer service is that? But, you know .... I think most places state that they're not responsible for lost packages so charging again for shipping isn't that outrageous.

Wow, some team mates just got insulted by a mysterious person who was looking into some "supposed" errors they made on some orders. Unknown individual referred to the whole situation as "a comedy of errors". Dunno if the person was trying to be smart with words but that is completely unprofessional and uncalled for.
Ironically, I think that e-mail was supposed to be only be for the supervisor's eyes but, uh, yeah, it was forwarded ... :P
