Sounds like a nasty exploitative show.  That's what gets ratings. 

I've seen a few episodes of Wife Swap and they really pick the extremes so the viewers have something to stare at in disbelief. It favors drama over a voice of reason. However, it still isn't as bad as some of the other shows I've seen. The parents on the show do get to say something about why they raise their children the way they do. Do you hear something intelligent once in a while.

The episode with the :D girl is on youtube and I've posted a link in this topic. The people on the show have serious issues, but it's kinda cool to see parents admit they aren't perfect and other parents have good ideas as well. The father of the Boss family. His 6-year-old daughter wanted to enter a pageant and he wouldn't let her at first. However, the woman from the other family was in charge and she let her compete. The girl had a great time and the father admitted it was a good experience, because she had fun and it showed everyone it's okay to be a tomboy and have a girly side as well.

BTW In the Netherlands there is a similar show, only with teenagers and it's actually very good. It about experiencing other cultures, putting yourself in someone else's shoes and it tries to help people meet somewhere in the middle.

Wife Swap is a TV series were moms swap places for two weeks. The first week they follow the rules of the household and the next week they are allowed to make their own rules.

Not if you get expensive stuff for the real Christmas, I guess.

Here's the first part of the Wife Swap episode, links to the other parts can be found in the related videos list. (The blonde girls costs her parents atleast 100.000 a year, but the other family's girl is scary too; she likes to dissect animals)

Her face is a constant :D

I could understand naming your kid Dolf because you like the name, but that poor kid's middlename is Hitler. Yep, future punching bag. I wouldn't be surprised if he becomes all fucked up and does something horrible.

BTW I'm surprised he was allowed to call his son Adolf Hitler. In the Netherlands there are strict laws to prevent things like this happening.

In the name of science!



I wonder if he'll dress her up as KOSMOS next time.

He did. He actually took it to a convention or two and dressed it up as a chobit/maid.

Wasn't that a Europe only thing? Anyway, it is available in English and the PSP is region free, so you can play it if you want to. Tales of Eternia is fairly cheap in Europe (often even budgetbin cheap), so it shouldn't be very expensive to import.

I was playing Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, but then my brother decided he needed the TV (I think he wanted to watch Nickelodeon or something) and the PSP. So I retrieved the DS from his room and continued my Advance Wars: Days of Ruin single player campaign I had started on the day I went to Nintendo HQ to play Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon. I think my life revolves around turn-based strategy games...

And the sad thing is, I can't even play chess. Maybe I should buy Wii Chess and learn how to play it...

Creating a companion that behaves exactly like you want it to behave. It eliminates social failures. It's like interacting with a fantasy.

Oh yeah, project Aiko. I saw pictures of it/her dressed up like a Chobit. In a maid costume.

What is it going for now? $120?

Konami must be blind, deaf and/or stupid. Atleast Squeenix noticed the whole Final Fantasy Tactics and Valkyrie Profile thing and took action (pushed games as a GH titles, ports). They've got a decent PSP port and a not so decent localisation lying around somewhere, so they should give us the damn game already. English PSP Suikoden II = Free money.

I heard the Suikoden I & II ports sold less than 25000 copies in Japan, but the situation in America and Europe is probably different. Also, it can't be much of a risk to release the game in English, since it's just a port.

Someone needs to do something cool with the Soulblazer games (Soulblazer, Illusion of Gaia, Terranigma). Put them together on a DS cartridge or atleast make them available on the virtual console.

Other than that I'd like to see more Vandal Hearts games. Strategy RPG's seem to be fairly popular right now, so this would be a good time for a revival. A nice remake of the first game so it doesn't look ugly anymore, or a new installment.

I wanted to play Wild Arms XF today, but my brother took the PSP and the stack of RPGs I bought for it. I doubt I'll see those again before monday. Or maybe I'll try to get it back tonight. He'll be to drunk to enjoy a strategy game anyway.

Instead of playing more Wild Arms XF I started a new game in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. When I grow up I want to marry Soren <3

Started Wild Arms XF, which actually does something interesting with the SRPG genre. The plot isn't much (at the moment, maybe it will force me to change my opinion later), but a lot of thought went into the battlesystem and the maps. I like how the objective isn't always "kill everything on the map". The prison "battle" was a bit of a bitch, the HEXes don't work that well in this scenario, but I like that they even attempted this. Thus far the battles offered good challenges, which is a pleasant surprise. Micromanagement is fast a easy and some of the classes are interesting and original.

Things I don't like:
-(English) voice-acting (good thing I'm not forced to listen to it)
-Not being able to save the battle (not a major issue, since it's a PSP game)
-Not being able to skip cutscenes
-a lot of the artwork and character designs
