Though, to be fair, Terranigma is an amazing game.

Yeah, with that underworld and the little sidequests you do to stimulate the economy and the clones and the WTF-'who is that?'-ending and... wait... which game did I spoil just now?

A little while ago someone told me my food is too manly. Too spicy, too filling, too much on the plates. It's been bothering me, so I tried something different today. I made tomatosoup and it tasted pretty good, but I failed. It's still too manly T_T

Friends, family, discovering new things, hoping to find a special someone again, and indie dreams are slowly happening.

BTW Tomara you're in the industry also?  Where and what do you do?  PM me if you wish :)

I'm more on the journalism side of things. I write for a Dutch independent Nintendo magazine called [N]Gamer. I guess developers might not call us part of the game industry since you're closer to the core and we act on the outskirts closer to the consumerbase, but consider this: we share the same ups and downs. We need your games to earn our paychecks and you need us too.

Anyway, I'm also trying to get work as a translator but it's difficult. Not because I lack skills but because not many companies allow translators to work from home.

Speaking of the weather, I annoyed everyone by wearing my winter coat today. I thought it was kind of chilly, the rest of the country didn't agree and my friend was like "What the fuck?!". Low bloodpressure makes me heat resistant :D

I was kind of like a zombie throughout most of middle/high school and college. I kept going because, well, what else was I supposed to do? There were expectations and I didn't want to be a burden on anyone, so I just did what I thought had to be done. There were times when I was exhausted. I got up at 6:45, got on my bicycle on 7:15, arrived at 8:00, went to classes, almost slept through the classes after lunch break, did my homework, went back home, ate dinner and went to bed at 6 PM to repeat the cycle the next morning. In hindsight, that may not have been healthy... but I did it anyway, because I felt I had to. It didn't really bother me, because I couldn't imagine life being any other way.

Anyway, I got a job in the game industry, dropped out of college (yes, in that order) and now I can honestly say that I get up in the morning because I enjoy my life.

Does being big-boned exist??  I have no idea how some girls about my age are at 95 lbs....  I like steak and all.  I'm more the type to work out than to switch to all veggie-diet (I'd eat it more if it meant smaller boobs though...hmm). x( 

Well, muscle weighs more than fat and I've noticed most girls that size can't even lift a twig. I'm quite short, yet you can count my ribs at 115 lbs.

I'm officially old. I told some 10-12 year old kids to get off my property, yep. I didn't really mind them being there on those stairs, but they were quite noisy and I had like four deadlines. Besides, I don't think they wanted me to know that K. is totally in love with N., but that the girl who's playing matchmaker is ruining it for the both of them and... Well, you get the point.
1853  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenogears worth it? on: April 10, 2011, 12:50:04 PM
Of which two hours would be spend climbing the Tower of Babel, right? Yeah, I guess the game did suck if 20% consisted of falling, falling and falling some more...

I really like Xenogears back in 2001. It was like some rite of passage into world of import RPG's. Xenogears was unlike any RPG I had played before and that made it special. Also, I was a stupid teenagers in those days so I was easily impressed by a storyline that went beyond 'kill dragon, save princess'.

Now I like Xenodurr, but I doubt I would have liked it if I hadn't played Xenogears back in the old days of Pokémon and Neon Genesis Evangelion DVDs. So, thanks Xenogears!

Sure we could think that way if Lightning was a human, but she's made by a guy with his fantasies and thoughts.

And all men are perverts and would never attempt to create female characters who are more than material for a sexy PVC-statue.

I admit I don't know Lightning very well. I'm not a fan of Final Fantasy XIII afterall. She did strike me as the type of woman who just doesn't care that men might look at her that way. And why should she? She isn't interested in them and if someone bothered her, she could easily kick their ass.

Of course, it would be a whole different story if she was constantly providing fanservice to the player but she isn't.

I'm pretty much happy with what I played when  I was younger funnily enough.

Me too. Plus, I was smart enough to buy the right games. If I had the possibility to go back in time, I'd tell my old self to buy some more extra copies of Terranigma in 1997. I'm evil.
1856  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Female gamers, is this industry treating you as well as you deserve? on: April 07, 2011, 06:42:13 AM
And I honestly don't get her obsession with whether female characters wear pants or not. Maybe Lightning likes not wearing pants and just doesn't give a shit about how the other characters feel about that? If so, more power to her. It shouldn't always be about what men like or don't like.

Tales of Vesperia. According to the game, I do not have a life. Thanks, game!

BTW Estelle is really obsessed with boobs, isn't she?

I'd actually prefer her size...

Yeah, it's a good size. Why would she want them to be any bigger? Yuri doesn't care. Rita doesn't care. And if she wants Raven's attention, she should just give him that hug he keeps asking for.

I can't speak for other cities, but I have a feeling that NYC is going to have to get a lot more bike friendly soon given the increase in commuter fares yet the decrease in service. I can't imagine any other way for people to get around, and god help NY if any more cars get on those streets.

It works well enough for many Dutch cities. It has so many advantages.

Oh, but they'd better now forget something very important: bicycle parking lots.

Dumbest Question ever?  No, I don't think so.  The 3D is on :P I have vision problems where I always see double and I wear glasses.

You're not alone. I can't see much 3D either. I kind of saw it coming (no pun intended), but was disappointed nonetheless. It's one of the reasons why I haven't bought any 3DS-games yet. I'll wait for reviewcopies. In the meantime it'll be used for Dragon Quest VI. To be honest, I wouldn't even be playing on yet it, if it weren't for my rabbit. He bit through the DS cable mere hours after I brought the 3DS home.
