I don't see why most girls would rather pick up a book than a videogame controller.

all right, i had to say something about this, because it's sad to read, really -- are you telling me you'd rather pick up a videogame controller than a book? there's so many awesome books out there, with no annoying cut-scenes or lame random enemies to endure in order to get the full story all the way to the end. lots of people, male and female both, would rather pick up a book than a game sometimes, thank you.

With cool female game characters like Samus Aran as the star what's not to like? At least it's not as sexist as Mario. Some poor damsel in distress always having to wait in a castle for some guy to rescue her. I can see why girls wouldn't appreciate being portrayed as helpless. Samus doesn't need any man to save her.

to be honest, i love the Mario series, but i can't stand to sit still long enough to play Metroid. it just bores me, and also, as a female who plays games, i don't want to be catered to, i want to be left alone. keep doing what you're doing, developers, because it's had me hooked so far. does that make any sense?

in short, i don't see why gender's such a big deal to guys. if a game is interesting, i don't care whether the protagonist is male or female, i'll still play the hell out of it. i also don't understand the focus on the 'elusive girl gamer' (again, from males) like chicks who play games are either a giant rarity or a big freakin' deal. we're here, we've always been here, and we're not going anywhere. it's not our fault you just haven't noticed us before, or that we're too busy playing our games to bother arguing against fanboys on the internets, lol.

yeah, the beans'll net you extra hearts, i'd do that much at least. also, you'll want to get the bottles too, hooray for extra potions/fairies on hand. i usually also do the skulltulas at least up until the point where you get the giant's wallet or whatever lets you hold the most rupees :3

Re: Email notifications

theblackdragon

are you using a browser that has tabs? if so, i usually open stuff i know will ask for confirmation in a new tab and keep doing what i'm doing in the existing one. then, when i'm done, i just close the one tab and confirm in the other one.

having it be automatic wouldn't be a good thing, i don't think, mainly because everyone's inboxes would wind up stuffed to the gills with notifications, lol. having it be an option you can click just before hitting 'post reply' wouldn't be a bad idea, though, IMO.

Re: A couple things I'm worried about, concerning my DSi.

theblackdragon

if the browser freezes up on me (usually i get tired of it going super-slow -- if the cache gets full, i guess, it'll sit there loading a page for like twenty minutes and not move sometimes), i just hold down the power button 'til it shuts off. have you tried that yet?

Re: Ever sell anything on Craigslist?

theblackdragon

I sold my TV through Craigslist before i moved last year. I'd been skeptical that it'd sell at the price i was asking for it, but sure enough i had someone interested the next day and they came over that night to pick it up. it was pretty awesome.

Just be smart about it, y'know? schedule meetups in broad daylight, don't go alone to pick something up, make sure you've got your cell phone, and only take as much money as you'll need to purchase the item. and if it sounds like too much of a good deal, it probably is.
