Re: Cohabitation

theblackdragon

My husband and I met on the internet. we meshed great over IM and on LJ and stuff, but in person... i'm not gonna lie — it was absolute hell for the first three and a half years or so. that man can make any room into a man-cave in less than a minute, complete with dirty dishes on the table and underwear on the floor. we had our good times, but most of it sucked quite royally because neither of us had ever lived on our own before and he was out of work once or twice during that stretch. we had a lot of growing up to do, lol — getting used to constantly having someone around to talk to (and get annoyed at) takes a while.

some advice for you (from personal experience):

  • lock down your computer. when you're not there, the system needs to be locked so that she can't get into it, and even after locking your system, never save any passwords for auto-fill in firefox or anything like that. if things start to go bad between you, or if she winds up insecure about something, you don't want her to have access to your stuff — and vice versa, of course :3
  • it's okay to be wrong. being right all the time may be fun when it happens, but it's lonely afterward if the other party decides to get passive-aggressive about it.
  • speaking of which, passive-aggressive does not work when you're living together. both of you have to make a conscious effort to steer clear of that trap... it's so easy to go 'oh, well i won't do this for them if they're not gonna do that for me', but that sh*t only makes things worse.
  • respect each other's stuff. remind her not to leave your razor in the shower after shaving her legs with it, sure, but don't expect her to sit back and let you use her comb or brush if you're not going to clean it out afterward, y'know?
  • talk to each other. if you've got a problem, let her know. bottling it up and hoping it'll fix itself doesn't get anything done.

also, perhaps a more random tip we learned during our first year of living together — don't ever put dryer sheets and bread into the same bag at the store. the smell seeps into the bread itself, right through all the packaging... worst. sandwich. ever.

Re: Have You Ever Been Bullied?

theblackdragon

Guys, while our hearts go out to those who have suffered bullying in their lives, the fact remains that this type of topic does not belong here. We at Nintendo Life are not licensed counselors nor psychiatrists, and there's a very good chance of some bad advice being followed perhaps by some of the more impressionable members of our community; same for bad examples being followed by the same.

If you need to vent and get it all out, creating a personal blog or writing in a journal IRL may help, or visiting your school counselor and bringing it up with them. Violence is never the answer, same for dropping yourselves to their level with insults and foul language. That kind of thing only makes a bad situation worse.

If you are being bullied, seek help IRL! Tell your teacher, tell your school counselor, tell your parents, whoever — just so long as you tell some kind of adult in a position of power who can help you. That's the only way this kind of thing will ever see resolution.

Re: Ace Attorney Series

theblackdragon

my bad — scratch that part of what i said, then. still, it took nearly a year after the JP release of AAI before we finally got it, and who knows what could be holding them up at the moment. still inclined to wait for an official 'no' from Capcom proper.

Re: Ace Attorney Series

theblackdragon

I'm with LunarJade — it looks like the question was 'soon', and the bluntness could be chalked up to the personalities of the individuals answering questions. considering the game isn't even out in JP yet, and it's gonna take them that much longer to localize it for a western release, i'd wait for an official statement from Capcom before throwing in the towel.

Re: What's going to happen to ActImagine?

theblackdragon

who said it was all over? unless you've got a guy on the inside, you have no idea whether they're done or not, and honestly, they can just adapt their work to 3D video (if that's even necessary), Nintendo (and other devs) can keep licensing it, problem solved.

whatever happens, they'll be fine :3

Re: What's going to happen to ActImagine?

theblackdragon

According to Wikipedia, ActImagine has more irons in the fire than just their work for Nintendo games. that said, i don't see why anyone'd up and dump 'em now that the 3DS is out — surely they can adapt their stuff to 3D just like everyone else is having to do :3
