I dont think I would like to program emulation stuff but at least knowing C++ I can do game engine things.

Low level programming is the bane of my existence. I hate all this nitty gritty fiddly crap. I hate having to deal with primitive structures like arrays, I hate having all this hardware related bullshit with very specific procedures. Thank god for High Level languages that actually feel rewarding to program with.

There is a pretty decent selection of RPG's. Soul Sacrifice is a fantastic game if you can get into the hunting style gameplay, Ys is fucking Ys as always, FF X should be really cool on the handheld and then there is also Persona 4 Golden. If you are a fan of Tales, there is that one Hearts game but opinions are mixed on that one.

Visual novels is where it's at though. DanganRonpa 1 and 2 are amazing games and some of the best to come out in 2014 imo and then VLR which is an absolute must if you played 999 on the ds. Then Steins;Gate is coming plus these weird visual novels called the Grisaia trilogy that seem to have a pretty good narrative.

If any of that sounds appealing to you, it's safe to dive in.

You live in Dublin Mesh? My brother works there in some software company. Whenever I visit him I might bump into you in the streets.

So I had my 4th date last night and we finally made out. It was my first time doing that, I'm as giddy as a schoolgirl.

Also I think I'm in love, damn arent I a cheesy person.

psh big deal, *I* got some more Saturn games.

WHO NEEDS GIRLS WHEN YOU CAN HAVE SEGATA SANSHIRO.

I AM NOT LONELY.

HONEST.

Hey, getting games is awesome too! And if someone like me can do something like this it's not a stretch that everyone posting here could if they wanted. I had pretty much given up and settled for a hermit life but I didnt want to succumb to that without at least trying the other thing.

Ah don't worry, I won't fuck it up I think. I'm not going to rush things. We've been talking extensively for over a month now even if we only really had 4 dates and she is from the same university and course so we do have other small IRL interactions here and there. I am not about to tell her I love her but I do feel like it's reciprocated. I mean we did all kinds of romantic/cute things like cuddle,holding hands,hug plus what I already mentioned and stuff as we did various things like playing Streets of Rage 2 co-op, watching funny videos and anime. She is as much of a noob as I am in this kind of thing so we are pretty much exploring an discovering as we go along, we are 19 so it's not like this is a hardened jaded adult thing.

Also thanks Goose,Dice,D,Jawsh,Klutz and Mickey for the congratz/input.

Psycho Pass 2's plot really is a huge trainwreck, I have never seen so many plotholes in one story before lol.

Are we anything alike?

I've had an absolutely miserable last two weeks.  I'm not going to waste time with descriptions about why that no one will read or really care too much about.  I just wanna say it fucking sucks and leave it at that.

Hang in there. If you need to vent, I'll listen.

You guys brought up some good points, the EU has already been working towards providing more consumer rights when it comes to digital goods and hopefully in the future some of those concerns will be resolved.
I understand that in the literal sense you don't own digital games but in the practical sense it's basically the same thing(the concerns mentioned are highly unlikely events, I'm not really sweating over it personally, statistically speaking these "catastrophic" events must be lesser than 1% given the volume of things being sold and the number of costumers) and there are ways around dealing with a banned account(most of the time if you didn't do something completely asinine, they will reinstate your account if you make enough noise) and as for the possibility of removing a product from the store if it's anything like PSN for example where they removed UMvC 2 or whatever, people who "owned" the digital game still had access to downloading the game even though it was pulled from the store.. And ultimately like I previously mentioned if something is on the internet, it's there forever.
Let's not forget that physical things can be lost/stolen/damaged/degraded and whatnot too. Nevertheless I think it's important that both options exist, ideally you want a physical market to coexist with a digital one. Plus I don't really trust the longevity of a digital purchase in the console environment.

I wouldn't get worked up over this discussion, you can do whatever you want. Reiterating the "Live and let live" sentiment.

Off the top of my head, you don't have a tangible physical thing which is something some people value(in your case a disadvantage actually) and there is a risk of products losing a lot of their monetary value what with the insanely reduced prices of digital goods and constant sales(at least video game wise), it might be hard to maintain a sustainable business if consumers aren't willing to offer up the money for bigger and costly endeavors with the "wait for sale"/"Ill wait until it's 2 dollar" mentality in a theoretical all digital future, if this was a thing that happens in the future, I think the prices of digital games would inevitably rise in response or the minute things are really all digital the sales won't be as frequent and as dramatic because there are no other avenues to buy the games.
Having a market for physical goods and people interested in them is healthy for the industry in that sense I believe.

This is a thing that relates to this - http://www.gamespot.com/articles/nintendo-explains-why-its-digital-games-are-not-less-expensive/1100-6415997/
