    I never finished it XD I got to the bit where I'm supposed to fight the Elder Wyrm thing but just couldn't be bothered :giggle:

    And X is where Final Fantasy started going downhill, so it can NOT be in a top list! IX and VII however can :yep:
    There's nothing wrong with FFX. It was better than FFIX. :yes:

    Yuna. :cry:

    I think my parents have pretty much planned out what we're doing :sad:

    And robots are scary. They keep making them smarter and smarter. I don't trust a machine that can think.
    You can always nag them :yes:

    I don't think that human-intelligence robots will be any threat, unless they're built to be threats. They will most likely be our friends

    Asimov's three laws prevent them from doing you any harm.

    Law 1: A robot may not knowingly cause a human harm, or knowingly cause them harm through inaction.
    Law 2: A robot must follow a human's order except when that order causes the robot to break Law 1.
    Law 3: A robot must protect it's own existence, except if that interferes with Law 1 or 2.

    (paraphrased, I don't know the exact quotes :p:)

    I think they're actually programming robots with those laws :giggle: There's also a couple more other people thought up to add;

    Law 4: A Robot must declare that it is a robot
    Law 5: A Robot must know that it is a Robot.

    You think a machine that can think for itself, that can't die and is much more powerful than a human, will be nice? It's impossible. The three laws are utopia, nothing more.

    Wagamamas is expensive for what it is to be honest. But then again many places are. I wouldn't eat there very often XD Although if I did I'd order a different kind of Ramen :giggle:

    It wasn't that great :| It had an extremely disappointing sequel :| Every game after it got worse :|

    FFXIII and Versus XIII however seem to be saving graces of Final Fantasy for now
    The quality of wagamamas is well worth it :yes:

    I thought X was brilliant. It is one of the few games which has made me cry. The main characters and storyline were some of the best I've come across.

    I don't tend to judge games on their sequels unless I've played the sequels beforehand. X-2 shouldn't really be considered a sequel, but a lousy spinoff. :tongue:
    The difference in quality is so great.

    I can't wait for XIII and Versus, either :woo:

    Uhh, Wagamamas + Quality = does not compute. They just cook some noodles and drop it in some pre-made soup :| Their Duck Gyouza was nice though :awesome:

    They will "think" differently. They won't have the same motivations as humans. Their only purpose would be to serve, not work for themselves.
    Besides, the robots in our lifetimes will only just start to think on a human level. More likely, the early ones will be humanoid shells with internal computers, capable of carrying out tasks which they are programmed to do. They could probably be quick learners able to learn new tasks throughout their service lifetimes. They will follow human commands obediently.

    Utopian! You can't programme a free-thinking being not to harm. Look at humans.

    Wagamama is not a bad restaurant, but the dishes available have clearly been "westernised" in some form or another. The only genuine dish I came across was the Yakisoba, which was pretty similar to what you'd find in Japan, or at least, from my own experience. Shame that they don't seem to employ Japanese staff, though. Not so much the waiters, but the chefs. It would be nice. Price-wise, I don't find it that expensive, but I'm not really one to talk, given the places I dine at from time to time. :o:
