I have multiple reasons for cleaning up after him:
1. Food shouldn't be left out in the open.
2. We'll run out of dinner plates if we just leave them in his room.
3. Not turning off his big ass TV, laptop etc costs a lot of money. He doesn't pay the bill, my parents do. Though I have to admit he doesn't leave his TV in the mornign anymore, probably because we warned him multiple times.
4. We share consoles and the Xbox 360 is in his room. I already came to associate Xenosaga and Dark Cloud with dirty laundry and the smell of sweat, I don't want to think about empty bags of crisps everytime I play Blue Dragon

According to my mom he does tidy up, but only if he knows my mom, my sister and I aren't at home. I know we enable his behaviour to some degree, but it's easier then trying to force him to be more responsible.

I think it will be easier to get along with him when we don't live in the same house anymore. He avoids responsibility as much as possible, but he also knows when to take it. He wouldn't have a decent a job if he didn't.

He spends almost half his income on booze. He owes me money. When I'm at home he doesn't clean up the mess his makes, because he know I will clean it up eventually. His weight worries me, because he keeps gaining weight and all sorts of obesity-related deceases run in the family. The reason I know his size is because I've been buying clothes for him for years. He refuses to buy underwear at the budget store, so my mom and I do it for him.

I don't think I spend that much on my hobbies (manga + games)... 100 a month, 150 at most. That may sound like a lot, but I put twice as much into my savings account every month. I'm also not someone who spends money she doesn't have.

El Orfanato (The Orphanage). It has creepy kids and makes you feel sad :(

Ehm, yes, the original games had a lot of design flaws, but they actually fixed those in SD! Battle preparations are so much easier now and combat is also a lot more fluent. The weapon triangle was weakened, but that just means it isn't an important element of your strategic plans now, now you need to focus on other things. You can't just rush forward and hope for the best. It's not like Shining Force were you can resurrect allies whenever you want. The hard modes especially require some good defensive strategies.

I personally liked the class swap feature, because it saved many characters from being garbage. It only went wrong in two cases: Sedgar and Wolf. Early availability of the general class and massive defense growths? That's kinda broken.

And only half of the series has support conversations. FE4 was the only game in which map conversations were essential for the gameplay and storyline. In all the other games support conversations were pretty much optional. I rarely really bothered with them.

Jade Cocoon LOOKS like a Ghibli movie.

EDIT: From the other side, one of the larger yaoi fangirls (not quite as creepy, but absurd nonetheless):

The mess scares me more than anything else. I know plenty of yaoi fans who have way more stuff than that. Some of her D. Gray-man merchandise is really cute, though. I wouldn't mind having some of those buttons...

In any case, now I'm seriously wondering if I'm creepy :/ I have a lot of manga, over 1000 volumes, but it's not as if I'm a hardcore yaoi fan or something.

Multiple shelves op rape doujin, it scares me... :(

But the games are only losely connected. It's possible to play Dragon Quest V before IV without missing much of the story.

Right now i'm divided between Chrono Trigger, FF IV and Etrian.

If it's between those three, I'd stay away from FF VI for a while. The game has a lot of nostaligic value, but I don't think it can compete with Etrian Odyssey and Chrono Trigger on its own merits. Get EO if you want a challenge, Chrono Trigger if you want a game that focuses more on storyline and character development.

The Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest are pretty much archetypes of Japanese RPG's. Final Fantasy III and Dragon Quest IV should be fairly cheap now, so maybe one of those?

Chrono Trigger is also an older game, but has aged very well compared to many other SNES RPG's.

Etrian Odyssey is love or hate for most people. It's a challenging dungeon crawler with turn-based combat.

I think I'm stuck... If this were the SNES version I'd go to the tower on the centre island and get the magma staff to open the path to the cave. But the layout of the tower has changed drastically! I got some claws from it, but I don't know if there is anything else to do there :/

Why not steal the whole computer while he was at it?
1858  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Your own tech support horror stories on: February 20, 2009, 02:36:16 PM
I think he would call tech support. He called tech support when trying to connect my parents' PC, because Vista is oh so confusing. It was funny when I got my laptop online in three minutes, without using the supposedly required CD.

It's a PS2, PS2s are cheap and easily replaced :/ If you have CD games you want to play, just play them. The newer models seem to have more problems with CDs than the fat PS2s anyway.
