@theblackdragon: I was just waiting for somebody to say something about easy-to-find converters! The thought had occured to me, but I was in one of those hilariously out-of-place self-righteous moods where it's THEIR fault I'm being inconvienienced and THEY should fix it! Or...something. I dunno. Maybe I was just being really, REALLY lazy. ;)

i was debating with myself whether or not to point out the obvious. :3

Also, there are exceptions to the metric packing rule you described, such as the half-liter, liter, 2 liter, and 3 liter bottles of beverages widely available. I can't really think of another exception right off hand, but I can never forget the bottle thing because those "16.9 fluid ounce" bottles are just so silly-looking. Fortunately, some companies actually started putting the metric measurement in the foreground for that size recently. Looks SO much better that way. :)

true. it's weird how that kinda evolved, isn't it, with just soda in the liter bottles? milk and juice are still sold in quarts and pints half-pints and gallons, for the most part. 2 and 3-liter bottles of soda are more popular than the 1-liter ones, though... it's so much easier to find 20 oz. bottles of soda in store coolers, and that's what you get out of vending machines, too. :3 personally, i don't care which is in the fore, so long as they keep the standard measurements on packaging someplace because that's what i'm most familiar with, and that's what all my cookbooks use.

I'm with Leader Kim up there... we'd need to know what you've already got, really. i mean, if you've got a crappy computer, i'd probably want to get that replaced with a nicer laptop before buying a brand new game system, 'cuz the computer is more versatile. :3

@Stuffgamer1: TECHNICALLY, you're right. it was done that way more for international commerce than it was for the American consumer, though -- you'll note that those packages with the different markings on them say stuff like '1 pint (473 ml)' instead of '500 ml (1.057 pint)' or 'Net wt. 8 fl. oz./236 ml' instead of a round metric number and a decimaled amount of ounces.

also, there's always Google for a metric/American standard converter if you're frustrated. :3

It sounds like Starfy will be a good choice for you, but if you like Kirby, there's Kirby Super Star Ultra out for the DS too (remember Kirby Super Star for the SNES? same thing, only updated and with a couple new things added... if you've never played KSS, though, get Ultra, you'll love it!).

@DaDun: if you're talking about measuring in feet and pounds, depending on where you are it could be American, English, or Imperial (technically, the three labels are not interchangeable, but people usually get them mixed up to refer to non-metric measurements D: ).

also, I'm 5'7", give or take a couple more inches if I'm in heels. :P

@Shadx: dude, he could be a freaking janitor for them and it would still be awesome. :D

anyway, i suppose my most prized gaming possessions would be the pile of doujinshi and game guides/artbooks for Genso Suikoden/GSII i brought back from Japan. I also got a big manga book version of the actual Suikoden tale in Japanese (seriously, the thing is huge), but that's only marginally related to gaming, because Outlaws of the Marsh is one of my favorite stories ever and it's nice to have more than the occasional woodcut print to go along with the story. :3

You have good taste, and have accidentally managed to convine me to buy Ace Attorney. Just when I get some money.

(a) why, thank you :3
(b) it's a good time to get into the AA series... i got into it when the games first came out for the DS, so i paid full price for all of 'em, but you can get them all now used for pretty cheap. apparently a lot of people just traded them back in when they were done playing them. :P

The fickle market, huh? Same reason why VHS video tapes beat the Betamax format, eventhough Betamax had the superior quality.

pretty much. anyway, i looked it up again, and apparently it's that multiple organizations claim to hold patents to MP3 decoding and encoding in different parts of the world, and there's been all kinds of lawsuits and confusion over licensing rights and patent infringements. in contrast, there's one big license agreement for all patent-holders to AAC technology (they all worked together to develop it), and all the fees for codec developers/sellers are laid out on their website if you're curious. :3
