I recommend you have a quick Skype or Facetime call first if you haven't already.

One of my friends who uses Tinder and OkCupid a lot does this. He said he had so many first dates where the girl looked absolutely nothing like her pictures that he now insists on it before meeting.

Not only that but it helps diffuse a lot of the initial meeting awkwardness so when you actually do meet in person, it feels like you've already done this before so it's easier.

It's what my current girlfriend insisted on doing before we met in person (also met on Tinder) and I'm sooo happy she did cause we hit it off so well our first date felt more like a second or third.

Also a good way to filter out axe murderers.

I thought bringing up this wonderful piece of anime localization's past would be relevant in this thread.

I actually keep meaning to re-watch Zoids Chaotic Century to see if I like it as much now as I did then. I probably won't, but I still want to see if it's any good or if I just had bad taste.

Fuck Cartoon Network for moving this show to a 6 AM weekday timeslot right before airing the last two episodes - and restarting the whole goddamn thing. THE. WHOLE. GODDAMN. THING. I hated that almost as much as I hated them moving Outlaw Star to late-night Adult Swim.

I had all of New Century Zero playing in the background while I was putting this together. It's pretty bad tbh. Might be better to let sleeping memories stay asleep.

@enigma777: oh man, the Panzer! When I was 10 that was the coolest shit ever. It still is. What kit is this?

It's actually 2 kits, a HMM Kotobukiya Model Kit of Liger Zero and the Panzer Unit expansion kit.

Indeed, most of the time I have these in the background and just listen to the banter. The video games are almost secondary in a lot of ways. But keeping it entertaining for that long, that often, is a tough task.

I dunno, the guys seem receptive to feedback but I suppose I'm the only one nowadays.

I was feeling pretty burned out toward the end of last gen. I had a similar experience of looking at my shelf of games and not wanting to play anything. Then the new gen launched and was underwhelming so the slump deepened. After a two-month break, a cross-country move and a new job, I'm in a much better place overall. Because my time is limited, I also don't play as many games. I remember before I'd get 2-3 new games per month and play a little of each one then move on to the next. Now I try not to buy new games until I finish what I'm currently playing and sometimes I don't buy a new game for months. There's been exceptions but it's worked pretty well for me so far. And I f I ever get the feeling of getting tired again, I just jump on Dota 2 and play a match or two.

Now all my introverts slowly nod your heads in silent agreement.

Don't tell me what to do!
