You do not want to see my lunches back in high school... I could eat so much food back then without gaining any weight. Heck, I ended up losing some when I ate more "reasonably" for a month or so.

Still, I'm glad I adjusted my habits as my lifestyle changed from 'high school student who races home (all 10+ km) to play videogames' to 'videogame journalist who hasn't been outside in like, two days'. My meals are a little healthier and the portions a little smaller, I use my exercise bike nearly daily (now I can ride a bike while I play videogames, hah!), that sorta stuff. I can't imagine how hard it must be make drastic changes.

No, no, no, less talking about weights, more talking about girls! I'll be disappointed if this doesn't turn into Gym Man.

Who even has personal landlines anymore, for that matter?

I do.

I make most of my regular phone calls through it. I do have a mobile phone, but that one is mostly for when I'm away from home the most of the day. The very idea of having to answer the phone whenever someone calls (or just hearing the ringtone out of nowhere for that matter) puts me on edge. And the mobile phone is mostly used sending texts, because it's old and the sound is all weird.

We held a little epic crochet bootcamp thing at my place this weekend and basically spend 20 hours:
-crocheting granny squares for our secret project (we made over 400 of the 899 we need)
-eating
-drinking tea
-watching anime on crunchyroll

Since no one had a premium account, we had to watch commercials and for some reason they were all American. Here is what we learned:
-Some people have a hard time seeing the difference between black men and Smokey the Bear
-Despite Smokey's best efforts, forests are constantly on fire
-You should totally take your kids to a forest, it'll be fun!
-Those kids better be adopted!
-Also, adopt some pets
-You can buy treats for your pets and have life insurance!
-There is not enough food in the US to feed everyone except there is, maybe
-Everyone is poor because they don't understand things cost money
-In order to save money, men will once chase down a man-pig and sexually assault it on a weekly basis. This is encouraged.

It made that anime about donut-animals shaped in a post-apocalyptic Tokyo seem normal.

I'm fine with new members talking about their projects here (learned about some interesting indie games that way), as long as they try to contribute to the forum. As from JRPG streams: I'm not going to watch. I want to play them myself if I want to experience them seriously. And if I want to make fun of them, I'll play them with some friends.

Skyborn (by Dancing Dragon Games). 

Whoops, yeah, played that one. Was on my list, but I had a little brainfart and mangled the title. Fixed now.
The Sacred Tears TRUE
http://store.steampowered.com/app/316840/
Bizarre battle system and good storytelling.

Thanks for reminding me. Played it and it's list worthy. Western made RPG Maker games are easier to find than raindrops in autumn, so I want to include a few Japanese examples as well.

I'm not really sure how to sell this one.
It's mostly comical but the plot is actually very deep.
You basically have to replay New Games + to keep uncovering more and more.
There is some sexual content (not really graphic)

Hm, I don't tink 18+ will get me into trouble. I'll have a look.

I'm working on a big article about RPG Maker and games made with it. While I've got a little list of interesting games, I'm certain there are amazing things out there I've never heard of. Since you're all awesome people who know things, could you help a fellow forum member out?

Some of the games that may make their way into the article:
Corpse Party
To The Moon
Labyrinthine Dreams
Last Dream
Eternal Eden
Skyborn
Always Sometimes Monsters
Off (heard good things about its weirdness, but haven't played it yet)
Yume Nikki (another one on my 'to play' list)
Millennium series (not very familiair with Aldorlea's stuff, have they made something more noteworthy?)

But the villain only exists to provide a challenge for the hero; to make the hero grow as a person or simply make him look cool. No matter how charismatic, intelligent or cunning the villain is, he or she will always end up a loser.

And yet again, I'm compared to a villain ;_;

It's not my fault I have to lead a small army of Tedwards!

Blah, sometimes I just kinda hate the people I work with. Actually, they technically work for me, but still... You see, they often don't get popculture references or jokes in general (I just had to explain the concept of air quotes to atleast four of them), they haven't read much literature and heck, half of the time they are barely aware of the medium they claim to be fans of! It's so boring ;_;

I'm not sure I understand the controller issue.  If the handheld is connected to the TV, isn't it the controller itself?  When I connected my PSP to my TV I didn't use a separate controller; my PSP controlled the action. 

Still, options are good.  Play on the go, or play at home.  I find myself playing games on my iPad and 3DS more than my PS3.

As for brand loyalty, I already answered that.  my brand loyalty pertains more to clothing than anything else.  Some brands of clothing are simply better sized and shaped to my body type. 

The smart thing to do would be to have the handheld as de default controller, but offer a wireless controller as an alternative/to be used for multiplayer. Sold separately, of course.

Basically, the thing would be like a Vita TV with a screen and buttons, I guess.

I wouldn't mind, as long as I can hook that handheld up to my tv somehow and play on a big screen.
But then you have the problem of the controller...

Wireless controller that connects to handheld.

Idea:

Four sacred development studio have been forced to develop exploitative mobile games for the evil KNM empire in order to turn the general population into addicts who'll gladly hand over their hard earned cash to continue playing. Only you can save them (and the wallets of the people)! Gather an army of 108 characters* (104 of whom turn out to be useless NPCs)! Hang out in your own castle! Play simple minigames to earn money you'll only every really need if you want to expand said castle!

*Who may or may not be named after RPGfan members and their pets.

No one here would tell you to not be harsh on a game. If that's how you felt, we wouldn't tell you to change it.

I did have a writer ones that made everything he wrote about look like the worst thing ever. We later figured out that wasn't even intentional; the guy just had no clue how to write about the good parts.
