part of me wants to say that we do have 3DS games coming later on in the year that should be great, but the other part of me remembers playing Ghost Trick, Okamiden, and Radiant Historia... i really, really don't know if the 3DS will be able to top those before the year is out. Radiant Historia alone was mindblowingly amazing, but all three of those games together... big shoes to fill for the 3DS.

That said, the DS was like this back in the beginning as well... perhaps later on in its lifespan we'll be saying the same regarding the 3DS versus its eventual successor, that the 3DS had an amazing year and the successor wasn't providing at all (yet). Who knows :3

Hulu alone doesn't, but then they don't keep all the episodes of a given show up, just the trailing few for most new shows in their current season. they also only put things up a week after it's aired (e.g. you'll be a week behind your friends at work if you like to discuss shows around the water cooler, lol). Hulu+ will have some complete shows up and available for watching if you're interested, though; it's good times. i'm pretty sure they tell you on every show page for Hulu exactly what's available for that show on Hulu+ as opposed to regular Hulu if you want to check it out :3

this really isn't much of a big deal. even getting both separately the price isn't that much higher. It beats the hell out of cable and paying for movie channels.

true that, actually — even with both, it's cheaper than cable.

i would say that if you want TV content, though, go for Hulu+ — it's got all the major shows that i'm interested in, anyway. with Hulu for the new stuff and Netflix for the old, i don't miss TV much, lol :3

They must get their funds from somewhere since it's free.

again, there is no way that place is on the up-and-up offering brand new movies for download... movies that aren't even available on DVD, movies that are still in theaters for crying out loud. please stop bringing it up, piracy is against the Rules. thank you :3

Cool, then he knows everything about this game and can provide first-hand information! I think all developers should review their own games. Of course they need to admit they they were involved in the production of their games and don't act like they're just some consumers.

exactly. we have no problems with devs posting at NL and interacting with our users — we welcome them to do so, in fact — but they need to be up-front about their affiliations if they're going to talk up their own games. :3

also, gotta get that GED if you don't have a diploma, and don't be afraid to go for stop-gap fast-food jobs if you need the cash — you can always tailor your resume later on to suit whatever job(s) you're applying for.

the thing that got me the worst when i was out of work a few years ago was all the stupid personality tests they had you fill out. just the same questions over and over and over, every single time you apply for something... ugh, it just wears on you after a while :(

if we can get back to the topic at hand now, there's nothing wrong with working at Wal-Mart straight out of college — it can take a while to find a job in your chosen field once you get out, if you ever find one at all. if i had a dime for all the people i knew who got degrees and then bounced around jobs doing completely different stuff... i'd have a pretty big pocketful of dimes, lol
