A hassle?  Really?  Achievements/trophies aside (which I already stated my opinion on), it's pretty trivial to connect your console to the internet and you're missing out on a ton of great downloadable games.


It's an Elite model, so that means buying that extra thingy. Cables aren't really an option, since the modem is located slightly outside of my house. Also, rabbits. The second problem is that the modem is an Experiabox. It's an evil, unlogical piece of shitty hardware. You do not want to know what I had to go through to get the laptop, DS and Wii online. Tales of Experia is a horrible game and I'm not going to replay it unless I absolutely have to.

I couldn't care less about trophies and achievements. Back when I lived with my parents, I used my brother's Xbox 360 and didn't bother with making my own account. After moving out I bought my own Xbox 360, but it's not even connected to the internet. The PS3 is offline as well. Hooking them up is just too much of a hassle.

My local gamestore is DimensionPlus (also called the DimPlus). Good selection, prices range from reasonable to cheap and the people are... welll, nice isn't the right word. They're very helpful and know how to deal with idiots. They get shit done.

Another gameshop I like is Castle Gameshop. Great selection and the service is awesome. They also have one of the nicest stores I've seen. It's clean and light but still has a real game store atmosphere. It's in Deventer though, so I go there was a year at most.

Both are very different from the soulless corporation called Game Mania. They're cheap, sure, but that's mostly because they excel at screwing customers over. You can return opened games within seven days and get your money back, sure, but that's mostly because they sell games that don't actually work. I bought a used Tales of Vesperia there, because I couldn't find it anywhere else. It didn't work. I returned it, they tested it in the store, saw it didn't work and put it back on the shelves the next day. That wasn't the first time something like that happened.

Another store I absolutely hate is Game Over in Amsterdam. The owner is an immature and petty dick. At Aniway, a Dutch forum for animefans and gamers, he tried to sell some junk from his store. There rules over at Aniway are very clear: stores are not allowed to use the Buy/Sell/Trade subforum. Anyway, he opened three topics to sell his 'personal collection', which mainly consisted of stuff like eleven copies of Daikatana and fifty FIFA's. When I pointed the rules out to him, he said he was going to call the police, because this was clearly slander. The mods laughed, deleted his topics and banned his ass forever and ever. I'm going to mention his name here, Simon Hofgeest, because he's known to google his own name and register at forums to respond to anyone and everyone who says something bad about his store. Ah, the stores the internet has to tell about this guy...

The good: going for a walk

The bad: it started to rain and I didn't have my umbrella with me

The ugly: this thing I saw...

999 is so addicting. Three days, three endings and I'm going to aim for an ending a day for the next three days. I love it. I haven't had this much fun in a long time! I just wish they didn't screw up celsius/fahrenheit the whole time. 107 degrees fahrenheit does not equal 75 degrees celsius. There is a huge mistake in the intro as well. They give the player a fancy calculator, but can't be bothered to do some proper calculations themselves? That's lazy :/

Last Night I dreamt the library was invaded by very slow moving manequins, and in order to stop them, we had to engage in turn-based combat with makeshift spatulas.

Was it ATB? I hope it wasn't ATB. I hate ATB in dreams. Controls become all sluggish, the enemy moves faster and faster and then you die :(

I prefer realtime, because I love to spam arrows and magic. The only downside is that is sounds silly if you have to shout the names of the spells. IceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceFire3!

Sure, I've got two DVD-players, but one is my PlayStation 2 and the other one is my other PlayStation 2. Oh and I guess the PlayStation 3 counts as well, so that makes three. NTSC U/C PS2 and PS3 are currently hooked up to the TV. PS2 plays my region 1 anime DVD's, PS3 takes care of the rest. Why hook up another player if these two are doing a pretty good job?
1479  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Nintendo 3DS Launching at $249.99 on March 27 in the US on: January 19, 2011, 02:42:41 PM
$250 = 250 euro

Fuck you!

Don't forget about those lovely region locks.

I'm going to buy one, but only because I have to. And I'm totally going to write it off as a business expensive.

Band: Critique of Hegel's Philosophy of Right

Album: Laugh at life's realities

Yeah, we're using that cover ironically.

I have had weird crossover dreams, like Xenosaga meets H2G2. Arthur and Allen got along really well, but chaos fled and locked himself in the bathroom when someone asked him to make tuna sandwiches for everyone.

Other dreams are really weird. I had one about the Lego levels in Mario land 2. Except it wasn't really a level but more like a dystopian society ruled by the pigs. The pigs ate people.

There was also the Atelier ??? dream. I loved that one, because it was so cohesive and vivid. Just walking through town and looking at the shop windows was so much fun. The alchemic items looked really pretty.

Well, you know what they say - when you tell a dog "don't do that," the dog interprets it as "don't do that." When you tell a cat "don't do that," the cat interprets it as "don't do that where I can see you."

Rabbits are worse. On one hand they're the perfect pets. They practically house-train themselves, don't make a lot of noise and are a lot of fun to watch. They'll listen if you tell them to stop, but only if you're close enough to actually stop them. They don't react well to punishment, so you have to distract them with someting that's better than whatever unwanted activity they're engaged in at the moment. Oh, and like cats, they like to climb on top of everything and sit in boxes.

Forbidden Planet is my favorite comic shop in NYC. It's also dangerously close to the company I work for (like a five minute walk).

We have a FP megastore in London too, though it's not as close to my flat or hang-outs as I wish. :(

I live in the middle of nowhere and the nearest comicbook store is 1,5 hours by bus and train from here. So, I order most of my books online and rummage through the bargain bins at animeconventions.

I have a small collection of graphic novels too. My brother collects proper comics but he's mostly into mainstream dc (Batman, Superman, Justice whatever-they-are-now). The only ones I still actively collect right now are "Umbrella Academy", "Unwritten" and "Fables". My other comics are just older TPs.


I buy TP's once in a while as well, but it's easier just to borrow them from other people. I lend them manga (and Criminal Minds boxsets) in return. I've got some random graphic novels enthusiasts would consider essentials. Like, uhm... Blankets, Tamara Drewe and Bone (the ultra affordable one volume edition). Oh, but you know what I really like? Beasts of Burden. It's basically about pets taking on satanic cults and the artwork is awesome.

Oh yeah... manga. It's a good thing we don't have earthquakes.

Let's see, Ive got...

A set of Okage: Shadow King figures. They're standing proudly in the living room.

A complete set of Saint Seiya capsule toys. Shun looks like a ballerina and falls over all the time :(

A Timcanpy plush. It's extremely adorable. Oh, and I have a small Lavi figure as well. He guards my bookshelves together with Timcanpy.

A small Tenebrae plush that came with my reviewcopy of Tales of Symphonia 2.

And, of course, a Slime controller! Slimes are great. I love slimes! A friend of mine made a little 8-bit pixel painting of a slime for me.
