i don't, but my husband does. i won't let him do it in the house, but i don't mind hanging out with him outside while he smokes. i grew up around it, so i'm used to it, but it's just not for me.

@theblackdragon: There is when it gives Squenix low enough sales to decide to give up on the series again. :(

but how is that the consumers' fault? if they were giving us a completely new chapter in the series, that would be one thing, but CTDS is still a re-release. the market is pretty saturated where Chrono Trigger is concerned. they can't base interest in the series on sales of its latest re-release alone; that would be moronic.

Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in this history of mankind.

Mankind -- that word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests.

Perhaps it's fate that today is the 4th of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom, not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution -- but from annihilation. We're fighting for our right to live, to exist. And should we win the day, the 4th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice:

"We will not go quietly into the night!
We will not vanish without a fight!
We're going to live on!
We're going to survive!"

Today, we celebrate our Independence Day!

it should; the only problem is that your computer has to remain connected to the internet, so if that line is public and people call you on it, you'd be stuck having to reconnect every time.

yes, i drink occasionally. it's fun to get together with friends and chill or go out for a movie and have a drink with dinner beforehand. how much I drink at a party tends to depend on what kind of crowd i'm hanging out with and whether or not i'm welcome to stay the night, to be honest. :3

for you guys saying you don't understand people who decide to imbibe on occasion, here's a tip: don't rag on the friends you have that do if you're out at a party or someplace where you knew there would be alcohol in the first place unless you don't really want to hang with those friends anymore. a true friend will respect your decision not to drink and will not pressure you to drink anything alcoholic, but in turn they will not appreciate you complaining every time they reach for a sip of their beer.

the problem with this is that they'd probably start building in the overhead necessary for them to still be able to turn a profit even after lowering their prices, thus making it all moot in the end. the occasional sale would be one thing, or a deal where if you purchase two games in one session you'd get them both for a reduced price, but for individual downloadable games, i'd rather have them set one price and just stick to it, the way they've been doing.

AuthorRe: Can you legally download Japanese games to a US Console?
AvatarAdmin

theblackdragon

12,189. Posted:

this page has a lot of information on Japanese Wii systems and its lockouts. Assuming US Wiis operate in the same manner, no, there is no way to legally download Japanese VC/Wiiware games to a US Wii -- the Wii will automatically only be able to access the Wii Shop for the region it's designed to access. Also, if you've got a Japanese Wii, you'd need to have Japan-bought Nintendo Points to redeem on it (there's also a region lockout for point cards; there's a link to a video on that page that shows an attempt on a US Wii to redeem a presumably Japanese Wii Points card that gave them an error 205618).

I'm pretty sure I read something about foreign (out of region) credit cards also not working to purchase Nintendo Points through the Wii Shop, but don't quote me on that until you read it for yourself someplace else. :P

@SuperSonic1990: Don't misunderstand me, she really IS a great friend. She's put up with hours upon hours of melodrama from me over the past year, never begrudging me any of it. It's just that she's all about her schoolwork, and was somehow COMPLETELY oblivious to my feelings until I told her, nevermind several people around us had noticed without me saying a thing to any of them. She understands absolutely nothing about love, and therefore can't treat me as sensitively as I'd prefer. She actually tends to act like nothing ever happened, which sometimes causes me to have to remind her why I'm doing something I'm doing, or getting annoyed when she carelessly starts dressing nicer around me and stuff.

For all those circumstances, she's easiest to talk to online. My best friend of instant chat. :P

ouch... that's pretty rough, man -- by acting as if nothing ever happened around you, it sounds like she's trying to tell you that she'd rather you behave the same way. have you tried making other online friends or elaborating on existing friendships so that you aren't subconsciously focusing on her so much as your emotional outlet?

also, the easiest people to talk to online can be the most annoying people to be around IRL. there's something about the internet that makes it so much nicer to talk to people than in person. i don't know what it is. D:

if this is true, then why are they bringing the Koopalings back for NSMBWii? Isn't the target audience for that game going to be 'the kids' as well?

hmm.. that remind me of the battle system in Final Fantasy 4 on the DS, it had a similar gameplay style

pretty much. either way, it's not completely turn-based, but it's up to you whether or not it still has appeal. :3

the battle system takes some getting used to, but once you've got it down it's not bad. i like that you can switch out demons in battle, too, instead of having a character stuck alone if their demon(s) get knocked off. i also like that it's set in modern-day Tokyo. :3
