856  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: 71 year old sues her kids for parental support on: August 21, 2010, 10:32:15 PM
All I know about that law is from what I just read in those articles. However I see absolutely no basis for something so stupid. It's a parents responsibility to provide for their child (considering they're the ones who brought them into the world) and at no stage in their life should a child have to pay their parents back for the basic necessities of life they were given as the grew up.
857  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Dusting the Inside of a Laptop on: August 21, 2010, 07:37:42 PM
I know pretty much nothing about PC hardware, but recently my laptop has been overheating and shutting off when playing games for a while. I'm assuming this is because there's dust inside.

The problem is that my laptop has no hatch over the fan area, so I'd have to unscrew and and remove the entire bottom half of my laptop. How risky is that in terms of doing damage to something important?

In case anyone knows about them I have Toshiba Satellite L500.

I'm pretty sure it means in succession.

The only non-crazy one was a girl I dated when I was 7. We were married briefly though I don't think it was recognized by the government because it happened in the playground, our rings were made out of jelly and the school bell rang before my cousin said "I now pronounce you man and wife".

Oh my gosh, that is sooooo cute!

Man, I just wish Grotesque was being released in US dollars. If it was, say $25 US, I'd totally get it. It' be only around $28 AUD for me then.

Morrowind was one of those deals where you really have to play it without expectations, along with a sense of wonder. Now that Oblivion has came out and the face of gaming has changed its hard to appreciate it normally. It's a great game, but definitely more niche these days.

Yeah, I'd imagine if you've already played Oblivion then Morrowind would be nearly impossible to enjoy.
863  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Watch out! Lord of Arcana is a BRUTAL Action-RPG... on: August 20, 2010, 03:30:37 AM
Yeah, there's no story. You go on missions (without any kind of plot explanation) to:

i) Collect certain things (plants or items)
ii) Kill a boss monster
iii) Kill multiple smaller ones.
iv) Occasionally some other random stuff.

It gets exceptionally difficult. Did you ever play Demon's Souls? This is much harder. I hear the Wii version (Monster Hunter Tri) is a little easier though.

Elemental I had heard of, and it does look somewhat good.

Grotesque Tactics I had never heard of, but.... IT LOOKS AWESOME! Unfortunately I probably won't get it. At 20 euros, that's around $40 for me. A little too much for an indie download game. Better price for all you Americans, I imagine.

Morrowind just takes a bit of getting into. The first time I played it I played for around 30-60 minutes and thought it was crap. Came back a few months later and knuckled down. Played 2-3 hours and absolutely adored it. Played well over 100 now, haha. Though that was after installing good mods. Makes a big difference.

Edit: Oh, and don't forget it's an RPG. I tried to play it like an action game the first time around (more like Oblivion is). Role-play it and it'll be way more enjoyable.

Classification boards don't like 'anime sex' because, let's face it, a lot of anime sex involves characters under 18.  These characters are actually adults so that shouldn't be a problem.

You're absolutely right. However (at least in Aus), the character only has to appear under the age of 18 for it to be illegal. And exactly what that means is open to interpretation. So even assuming Catherine is in her twenties or thirties, if out classification board decide she looks too young (which they often do with anime) it'll be kicked.

Edit:
Not a good example for anime, but look at how long this list is:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_banned_video_games#Australia

and, of course, that's only the games that companies have actually tried to have released down here. There have even been calls to ban Mass Effect 1 and Modern Warfare 2, but both were released without any censorship in the end.

Yup. I've got Morrowind and Morrowind: Game of the Year Edition. Both run on Vista x64.

Hell, I even have Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall. Emulate it with DOSBox.

Exactly why you should always buy an Elder Scrolls game for PC... heh. I've got something like 60 mods running for Morrowind and over 100 for Oblivion.
