Thanks Neal. At least I understand it now!

This seems like a risky design, so it'll be interesting to see how it pans out. I would have guessed Nintendo might have opted for a more 'traditional' and safe system next to re-coup some of their Wii U losses.

The going joke is that the candidate could be a chimpanzee and people would still vote for it if it was aligned to their preferred party.  

Do you have to register/align with a party in the US? I've never been quite sure if I understand that correctly - we don't really have party alignments here. Not formally, anyway.

But voting for a chimpanzee over another candidate, now that sounds like the politics I know! :)

Probably for the same reason that Sega of Europe turned down the opportunity to publish Atlus games in this region:

As someone who is not American, reading about the Democratic and Republican conventions is a really odd experience, almost like it's from another world. Very few people care much about politics or politicians here and our elections are generally about which party is less boring than the other. :P

Thanks everyone! Appreciate the well wishes. :) It's a relief to know that wedding planning stress is almost over. Hooray!

Rather, marriage is a promise you make to your best friend that you'll spend the rest of your life understanding, improving, and accepting, precisely who you both are.

I agree with this. My fiance and I are fully aware there will be rough times and a lot of learning as we start to live together (and probably after that too!) - we've also done a marriage prep course and feel we are as prepared as we can be going in. But we're both fully committed to working through and resolving these issues. I think it's easy to read that and go "Yeah, sure, easy to say now" and maybe you'd be right, but we're both very confident (perhaps because that was what both our parents did too and they're all still happily married). We know that we're not perfect and we know that our relationship is not perfect - we're just human, after all. Over time we will both change, as is natural, anyway. We're both Christians and fully trust that God has brought us together so we can serve him better as a couple than we can as individuals. Maybe that will be a life filled with trials and hardships, or maybe it will never be too tough, but, whatever it is, we're committed to it together.

I would never decry those who chose to live together first though, because I fully see the reasoning behind it. But that was not a choice that we personally ever considered.

Not really relevant to the above, but Agent I like your new avatar. Also glad to see your face survived the image transition. ;)



In my haps... I will be married in less than 7 weeks. So awesome, but also kind of weird to think about. My fiance and I do not currently live together, so we've been moving stuff in/out of our new apartment which is tiring, but pretty fun. Both of us are looking forward to being married much more than the wedding day itself - too much stress! Haha. We'll be on our honeymoon afterwards, but it's so easy to forget about - it feels too far away and the wedding takes up all my mental space.

I also have no clue whatsoever when a girl is interested, sometimes I kinda sorta get the impression a girl might be interested in me but then I tell myself I might be overestimating my own attractiveness and there's that part of my brain wants to stubbornly wait for a girl to make it painfully obvious that she's really interested before I invest myself in something that can hurt me.

To speak from my own life experience: sometimes you just have to go for it. It's very easy to doubt yourself, even when it's painfully obvious to everyone else two people are interested in one another. For example, my fiance and I knew each other for a few months before we started dating. During that time I was really interested in her, but had absolutely zero idea whether she was interested in me even though she was texting me all the time, sitting close to me, etc. etc. Looking back, it's crazy that I still doubted what she thought. it seems so obvious now, but I had so many doubts at the time. But, sometimes, you gotta just take the plunge anyway. Worked out well for us. :)

I love the response of the Xbox Marketing manager: "I refuse to give credit to anyone else. DID YOU SEE THE NEW XBOX?"

She is, yeah. I think you could definitely draw a comparison between them, now that you mention it.

She's been a politician for a couple of decades though, except she hasn't been voted in for a while.

We've just had a general election and everyone hates both our major parties so much that no one knew who to vote for. It's about a 50/50 split with tons of independents and minor parties representing.

For some reason when I read the title of this topic, my brain translates it to: "What is the 'haps', my good sir?" \_(ツ)_/

Scott is spot on. I think it's worth playing the first just so you get the emotional impact in the second. Covenant is one of my favourite games so I'm a bit biased.

That's exactly what I'm doing. :)

Dude, Platinum's are to celebrated. I don't care whether you are a trophy hunter or not. And even if one is of the persuasion that "they don't play for achievements and could care less", a plat in an RPG such as DAI is to uber-commendable.

I missed this before! Thanks Klyde. :)

Shadow Hearts is frustrating and I hate it think it's pretty average. Still going to keep playing though...

The judgement ring is bar-none the best battle system in a turn based JRPG

edit: I'm interested to know what it is about SH that you find frustrating?

I actually also like the judgement ring! It's a great addition (as are Yuri's transformations). It's about all I like though. Frustrations: long attack animations; frequent status ailments; small movepools (excl. Yuri); and while I like the SP bar in theory, it's bloody annoying to manage when you're also in a battle where you're healing tons of status ailments and/or run out of SP-restoring items. The game as a whole actually interests me, but I don't really enjoy the battles at all.
