Taxes: Yep, I'm going to pay. I don't really mind, that's how the system works and I'm usually okay with what taxes are used for. What's annoying is that people think it's weird I don't mind having to pay.

Health: pretty good, although I wasn't able to give blood today. Hb value was 7.7 instead of the minimum 7.8 (mine is normally closer to 9, so I was kind of surprised...) and now I won't be allowed to try to donate again until late June. Oh well, if they don't want my blood, that's their business. They did offer me some snacks, but the snacks there are disgusting and filled with transfats. "A donor's health always comes first." Yeah, right.

I also got this weird warning I shouldn't lose any weight. Which is weird, because my weight it actually pretty perfect and I weigh enough to donate. It's just that all the large people out there make me look tiny and super skinny in comparison.

(On the plus side, the nurses were slightly less over-protective this time. Maybe. Being compared to Spencer Reid might not be progress. And they were really adamant about me having some cookies... )

I had some problems with a blue disc once (La Pucelle Tactics), but that old PS2 (bought used, an ex-rental from a videostore) needed a good cleaning anyway. Once the dust was gone it played everything again.

Olivia Benson, Link and Eminem. Could be much, much worse.

Japan: You can play as a female hero, but they can't have a boyfriend, so the heroine can be "single" for the male player.

Amurrica:  You can play as a female hero, but they can't have a boyfriend, because a guy is kissing a guy as a girl -- and that's gay.

((for the record, I'm just being a goofball here))

Also,

America: box art filled with cute girls and sweet colours = game for little girls

Japan: box art filled with cute girls and sweet colours = game for men who like little girls

I loved the dog one, that said, it did need a few modifications; more dogs should have been labeled 'little dog' on the male side, the average dude could identify a Doberman or Rottweiler or German Shepherd, and in the interest of fairness (and truth!) there should have been a silhouette of an English Bulldog that read 'ugly dog' on the girl's side and 'bulldog' on the guy's side.  'Shark dog' was pretty awesome, though, as well as OMG FUCKING EIN.  And by awesome I mean true. :D

Needed a chihuahua entry to explain why females/anybody would give any fucks about those fuckers (male entry would probably have been 'the Taco Bell dog'/'hideously obnoxious fuckers').

If my (male) anthropology professor is any indication chihuahua would be labeled on the male side as 'kickable dog'.

Thanks you two, I needed that. I send in a picture and the editor-in-chief liked it. He told me: We already have a [name of columnist] and don't need another. The manga in the background of the photo lead to a conversation about comics in general. Turns out he's an avid reader of comics as well. So at the very least that went excellent.

The gamer scene can be pretty cruel about some things, but also surprisingly accepting with a lot more.

Which is kind of what worries me. Most gamers I know are nice and considerate, but there's a group of sexist bastards out there who never grew out of their exclusive treehouse mentality. I normally stay far away from them, but I don't know if I will be able to in this case. I might get nasty reactions and although I know they are childish and shouldn't be taken seriously, it's not the kind of welcome that will give me a confidence boost.

So while I do feel good about finding the courage to send in that picture, I still kinda wish I wasn't asked for one. Two of the other magazines I write/wrote for just gave everyone an avatar to hide behind. In [N]Gamer we used Mii's and in Aniway we all have mangafied versions of ourselves in cosplay drawn by a professional artist. Well, it's crossplay in my case, I guess. I'm dressed like Jomy from Toward the Terra.

I know I'm more of a lurker, but I really need to vent...

I don't know what pisses me off more right now: my inability to take a great picture of myself or social requirement that I do so. You see, I just started writing for a new magazine and they have this thing were they post a snapshot of a writer and some entertaining info about him. Or in my one case: her. Normally this wouldn't be too bad, but there is this female columnist, the only other woman who writes for this mag... She has one page every month and half of that page is filled with a (professional) photograph. She must have spend atleast an hour in hair and make up and by the looks of it she had some assistance of mr. photoshop as well. I can never look that great without the help she has had. And I know it's fake and me just smiling and looking friendly would be real, but would the readers (mostly males age 18-35) know and appreciate that? And should I care? I know I shouldn't, but it's hard not to. I was bullied for many years and I can't say I'm all that confident...

This makes me happy.

I think my fav is Trinka. Compared to the others she looks like the underdog, but experience matters.

I hear it wasn't a super great game, but still-- more RPGs is always a good thing. XSEED is doing nothing but building goodwill among a fanbase, if you ask me.

Maybe they can fight Square to the death for the localization rights to Bravely Default.

In terms of gameplay it's a poor man's Zelda in which you use the hookshot for nearly everything. Some things you can do with the chain are kinda neat, but it gets old fast. The game doesn't look all that appealing either. It's all very brown and bland. But it does have something special. If you get hooked, it'll be thanks to the characters. It's one man and his love against the whole world and it's hard not to care. If you like the stories in games such as ICO, and Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter or hey, even Jade Cocoon, this is probably your kind of thing.

You get better ads then me. All I get are ads for those browser games about m'lords and its like the internet doesn't even listen to me anymore this marriage is over

My ads try to hook me up with 'hot women near me'. I feel alone and misunderstood, because the internet refuses to accept that I like men :(

Don't complain! You're younger than me and you have such ahppy memories. I associate ToS with heartbreak! D: The characters my former boyfriend and I picked for our playthrough told us more about our relationship than we could ever figure out on our own... Though I guess it's kind of funny in hindsight, heh.

Final Fantasy XIII - I kept getting my ass kicked by a certain Chapter 10 boss after he transformed, so I kicked his ass before he could transform. I feel pretty awesome right now.

Wow, now that is a feat. I never remember being able to do that.

To be honest, it just kind of happened. I planned on being more on the offense and go for atleast two staggers, but I managed to stagger him just before he transformed and threw him up in the air right away. That's where he stayed until the end of the battle.

My team consisted of Lightning (with my only piece of upgraded equipment: one of those things that boosts attack), Hope (great ravager, decent healer, and I just like him, so whatever...) and Sazh (his buffs are awesome). I started of with Commando - Ravager - Synergist, then switching to Ravager - Ravager - Synergist after the first few attacks. Then RRR or RMR until the chain was nearly full. Finally I switched to CRR, staggered him and threw him up in the air. After that it was easy going. I had a buffed up team, he was a flying piece of butter. Maybe I could have done even more damage with CRC (and some more upgraded equipment), but I finished him off mere seconds before the bar ran out.

I have always wondered if this was a bad habit or not... I mean, logically it should shorten the system's lifespan right???

I imagine overheating would be the biggest threat, so as long as you make sure that doesn't happen, it should be fine. Plus, I'm sure handhelds like the PSP and 3DS were designed to be on all the time.

Playing Final Fantasy XIII. It was a Christmas present from my brother last year (he didn't like it, so he wrapped it in some nice paper and put it under the tree), but I didn't really get around to playing it until a couple of days ago. I like Hope more than I thought I would. I mean sure, his behaviour in the beginning of the game was annoying, but he had every reason to act that way. Can't really hate him for being human, right? He's also an awesome little mage, so that helps.
