I want to use this to ask the question of whether games have a responsibility to address depression and mental illness.

Short answer:
No. Why should they?

Long answer:
This would be a terrible idea as NO ONE in the game industry has the knowledge needed as a medical professional. There are people specialized in those kinds of care and those are the people that should address mental illnesses. There's a good reason your car mechanic isn't doing brain surgery.

Golden Sun is the serie with the most backtracking I've ever seen.
It's like there's this designer somewhere getting sexual satisfaction out of making you walk back to every town you've been to after every single dungeon.

What stealth? I sniped everyone before they ever saw me. Is that considered stealth?

I just read the last chapters of Gunslinger Girl.

All I can say is that it's an incredible manga.

Yu Aida said long ago that he wanted to make an Italian opera as a manga.
He succeeded.

One thing I find interesting is that the fans' reaction to the ending is really tame. I think it's because the author 'trained' his readership slowly for what would be the ultimate finale.
The last message of hope was really nice.

It's time to kick the apocalypse in the nuts and live another cycle!

I saw this on another forum and I thought it would be an interesting topic here too.

List some things you did or failed to do that made you feel genuinely bad.
It doesn't necessarily have to be a personal choice as it can be something fixed in the story or a mandatory action/quest.

Also, for added fun. you can list some horrible things you did that others probably would feel bad about but you didn't at all.

To avoid possible spoilers, I suggest using this format:

Katawa Shoujo
Hanako's path - Good end
After you finally meet her again and talk about the time you had sex (which I thought was mutual), you learn that you pretty forced yourself on her and she just let you have your way because she thought that if you had sex with her you'd start to see her as a normal person.
I felt like a total scum at that moment.

Mass Effect 2
Tali's trial
When Tali asks you to preserve her father's honor and lie. My paragon Shepard should have said the entire truth... but I really like Tali, and as such, I lied.
I felt so dirty for lying.

Chrono Trigger
Lucca's mom
The first time I played CT, I was pressing A to acknowledge the text box telling you to enter LARA, which would mean me pressing ALARA each time. As she was getting closer to the machine, I started to panic and swear at the game until *SCREEEEAM*
I loaded my prior save (which was a while ago) and redid it until I figured out what I was doing wrong.
I refused to let her be crippled because of some stupid mistake.

Mass Effect 2
I killed Wrex and I didn't feel bad at all about it. The Krogan was out of control and a danger for everyone else.

Funny enough, where I work, the men's bathroom is relatively clean.
The women's bathroom on the other hand has many a story about the horrors and smells found within. Sometimes, girls walk back all the way to the main building (we're remote) because they cannot tolerate the smell.

Reality shattering isn't it.

That is sig worthy =)
1735  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: SWTOR v2.0 - Now Free-to-Play on: November 19, 2012, 09:30:49 AM
If it's like most other MMOs, you can collect as much as you want and your total amount is tracked, but you spending 'potential' is limited to the lower amount.
Overall, it means you can't really spend more than X at one time unless you unlock it.
Usually, it's an auction house cock-block.

I heard that as long as you don't save while in a puzzle (room), everything's fine and dandy.
1737  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: What's with those Cheap Beats headphones? on: November 16, 2012, 09:25:24 PM

Thank you, that answered perfectly.

Tons of kids blowing 200$ on so-so headphones to look cool.
1738  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / What's with those Cheap Beats headphones? on: November 16, 2012, 02:50:48 PM
What's with those headphones?

Cheap Beats by Dre Solo HD Headphone

I see them everywhere. It's not even an exaggeration to say that more than 50% of the people I see with headphones have those (usually the white ones)

Are they that good and/or cheap?

I sure hope Square-Enix never finds my channel... I'd get insta-banned.

EDIT: or NIS... or Capcom... or Atlus...

EDIT2: Oh yeah, and these things stick to your account forever. I had 1 strike on Aug 15, 2006 and it's STILL there. 2 strikes left.
