It hasn't been too bad so far. You just have to find ways to work around the regionlocks. When I was your age, I was playing import RPG's like Xenogears and Chrono Cross on my *ahum* slightly modified PlayStation. It feels like you're playing something really special when the game comes from another continent. I've got two PlayStation 2's, one is American, the other one European. Gameboy, DS, PS3 and PSP? No region locks, so yay!

Things get tricky when there are only two or three imports you want but there's no decent bootdisc available for the system they're on. That means you either have to do some (illiegal) soft or hardmodding, or buy a second system.

Anyway, you're lucky Xenoblade and The Last Story are Wii games. The price of the Wii is diving towards 100, so a used system shouldn't be too expensive to import.

Atlus is a great publisher with some amazing titles but, and this is a big but, there is no Atlus Europe. Some of games translated by Atlus USA (read: the Persona games that did wel in the US) may be picked up by Square Enix, Ghostlight, Koei or Rising Star, but that's it.

Aksys? Xseed? Same story.

Don't worry, our troubles will return once Atlus starts pumping out awesome 3DS RPGs. Stupid regionlock.

As an European gamer and fan of RPGs, I think this is absolutely hilarious. Yay for karma!

We had computers with internet at school too. Okay, one computer with internet. It was in the principal's office. Only the boys were allowed to use it sometimes, because girls didn't know much about computers.

I still feel plenty immature.

Yeah, I was serious enough as a kid, now I just kind of want to be immature for a while. Of course, I still end up being the responsible adult in most situations, but hey, atleast I'm having more fun being one.

Oh, speaking of ages. Who else thought you could learn the age of a ladybird by counting the spots on its back?

C) And just to show you how much of a bitch she was, I'll tell you a story. One day after PE I sat in my chair and felt something weird on my back. I got up and saw that there were several wads of gum connecting the back of my shirt to the chair. I told her. She then punished me and sentme to the principal's office for interrupting class. The principal sent me back because she realized how stupid that was. You know what the kid who did it got as a punishment? He had to apologize to the class.

I've had an experience like that. The girl next to me kept tickling me and I couldn't stop laughing. I told her to stop, but she wouldn't. After a while the teacher interfered and sent me to the principal's office. She wanted me to finish my math work there. Problem: I was already finished. So I just kind of stared at the table for ten minutes before he sent me back to class.

Similar story: I went to the bathroom, but noticed that the toilet wouldn't flush. I went back to class, but since the teacher hadn't heard me flushing, he sent me back. I protested (it was the toilet's fault, not mine!), but he said I couldn't leave the toilet until I flushed. So stood there for fifteen minutes trying to flush it. Luckily, it was near the end of the day and I sneaked out when the bell rang.

Ah well, what's done is done. Whatever happened, you'll get over it eventually. Of course, you'll have to refind your self-esteem first, that's the hardest part. After that it's a smooth ride.

I got bullied being a nerd and all. Didn't last long because; didn't expect me to hit back. Bullies are serious wuss.
Fun thing too is teachers turned a blind eye to me beating on the guy.

So yeah, that would be my advice... and you don't even need to be buff, I've never been though or strong.


Or do kids all have guns and knives now? If so... nevermind.

Friends are more dangerous. Watch out for bullies with friends.

I defended myself once. Kicked a guy to the ground. Pretty hard too, I heard he had trouble breathing afterwards though that soon passed. I felt a little bad about that. Anyway, six other boys beat me down as well and made me eat sand. Teacher said I deserved it.

Lesson learned: don't stand up for yourself, make yourself invisible.

-You shouldn't scratch a piece of carton at night (or make a similar annoying noise for that matter) or the witch would come and get you

-Naughty children are send away to be raised by the Institution

-Eating marshmellows on hot summer days makes you vomit

Oh, and the whole stuffed animal thing, of course, but I did play favourites. In my opinion, my Waffie (a dog) was the president and king of stuffed animal land. It took it's toll on poor Waffie though. He's missing both his ears, his tongue and most of his fur. We've replaced his stuffing atleast three times and he has the scars to prove it. Oh, and this one time my cousin sat on him! I tried to get him back and poor Waffie was ripped in two! Mom and I sewed him back together, but he was never quite the same again. Poor Waffie :(

Almost done with Ar Tonelico 3. I think I'm going to get Finnel's ending. I don't really like her, but I HATE Saki, so, yeah. Perhaps I should have gone with another Reyvateil instead.. Ah well, I'm not going to replay this game, so Finnel it is.

Also, PEGI, why is this game rated 12+? Even in Japan its 15+...

In 2016 they will reveal the wii-u-dem.

WUT?

Engrish is funny.

They're probably stuck on manual/semi-auto. Put them back on auto.

Or grab two extra controllers and two friends and make them play the game with you. That works too.

Also, I dunno how many times I've had to see Tomara say she is a girl.

Now that you mention it... would it help if I changed my avatar?

Yeah, we can just call our moms and eat chocolate cake until we feel better.

Anyway, after a few calls, everything is right again.

-My uncle wasn't joking. My shirt was fairly tight and showed off my flat stomach, which is something most of my favourite clothes (lots of tunics) don't do. Plus, it was fairly hot today, so I didn't bundle up like a lil' old granny.
-I did not insult my sister and she's totally okay with her current weight. Though she does admit being slightly concerned, because my dad's side of the family likes to get morbidly obese by way of stupidity. She wants to avoid that at all costs. Luckily, she's not lazy and stupid, so she should be fine.
