I lost all of my friends at once over a stupid misunderstanding: My friends accused me of being gay (Because I didn't have a girlfriend) and drug me up to the high school's rooftop and proceeded to beat the sh*t out of me till I nearly fell unconscious and one of them started to strangle me to finish me off. I gathered all my remaining strength and threw him off the roof and promptly passed out. I have never talked to them since and never understood they're sudden immediate need to try and kill me. I've had a hard time making real world friends since that incident. I don't feel like I can trust anyone but I've managed to make a few friends since then. If I can make a couple friends after having everyone I know try and kill me, you can make up with a friend you got angry at.

So... Agoraphobia? Maybe talk to someone about it, do you have any family members who could help you? I've locked myself up in my own house for weeks at a time just because I don't want to interact with the world or I'm in a video game worm hole. Perhaps you could go out with a friend / family member and go to a quite place and slowly acclimatize yourself to the outside world?

Jesus, duder. That's really one of the worst things I've ever heard. Sorry you had to go though that, but I'm glad you've made new friends since.

As for the OP: It seems like a very complicated situation you're in, but if it's a friendship you really care about, all you can do is explain yourself, apologize, and hope she understands. I don't really understand how she doesn't sympathize with your condition if you used to be best friends, but perhaps things are more complicated.

I've had a friendship come back around after a solid chunk of time away from the person, so don't give up hope!

What do you guys think of the first book The Last Wish? I just finished it last night in preparation for playing the games and really enjoyed most of it, several of the stories didn't really grab me like others but overall I really enjoyed it. Probably what I like most about it was the fact that they are short stories so I could read one whole story and stop.

Are the other books worth reading in the future? Won't be getting to them anytime soon.

I loved The Lash Wish, but have found the following novels to be less exciting. Still good and worth reading if you're interested, but I feel like the novels just feel a little drawn out. Still very much looking forward to the English translation of Baptism of Fire releasing late June!

@bollard I cannot make it smaller and keep it centered.

...

Sure you can. You could either edit the image file itself and make it smaller, or perhaps placing it inside a table could work. But large images are great, so it's fine.

@gaftra: "If it fits, it ships"? D Leazy for President.

God, that was incredible. I know who I'm rooting for.

I've never noticed any sort of framerate issues at all. It holds up just fine and it looks and runs great. Worrying about a few frames here and there is silly.

Especially with a game like this. There aren't any action-y elements, are there? If I get this (which I eventually plan to) it'll be on Vita.

Oof, 20 bucks? Maybe for 10 I would check that out. Hell, maybe 15. 20? That's a bit much isn't it?

Be honest, you wouldn't pay $10 either. I always find it weird when people start analyzing to exact amounts how much a game is worth to them. I can understand that in certain circumstances perhaps, but for me, 99% of the time I'm either interested enough to buy a game, or I pass. Even a dollar is too much to pay for a game I don't really want to play. I mean, right? Maybe it's just me. I do already own way too many games and am conscious of it, so perhaps that plays a part in my mentality.

Doom's pretty spot-on. Duck Hunt is decent.

Life is esports, and esports is life.

I find it really amusing how this term is, against all odds, actually growing in popularity.
