Yes. One of the reasons I don't have a tattoo is because I would want a design I know I would be happy with for the rest of my life, something I would never regret and would be worth the money and pain to get. I haven't come across anything I would be willing to commit to yet.

Ultimately, I think I'd go with a hand-drawn custom design that I'd have paid a good amount of money for, because people have asked me to draw them a tattoo, and they weren't willing to even pay me $5 for it, so I declined.

Anime, but only because I've been exposed to anime, I know what to expect.

Wrestling? No one in my immediate family is in any way a sports fan. I'm thinking of giving it a shot, because a lot of people I know are into it, but I don't know how to to start watching wrestling, or if it's a good idea.

The fact that the PS4 is a thing at all, and a thing that will have Kingdom Hearts III on it, makes me want it by itself.

But alas, I couldn't afford a PS3, so the PS4 looks just as unlikely.

23/Female/NY/Psychology and Graphic Arts major/No. I consider myself Agnostic. I'm also the only one I know so far whose former religion wasn't Christianity.

My parents were never super religious, and neither was I, but the concept of God seemed really comforting. When I had the worst several years of my life, my first instinct was to pray, and the more I prayed, the worse things became. I eventually gave up. Realizing my love of science, and the fact that I was bisexual sort of cemented my decision. Parents weren't happy, and still insist I'm just as religious as they are, even though they've admitted themselves that they've never been that devoted to it. I'd like to believe God (and the supernatural as a whole) exist, that God loves all people without questioning, and that religion can co-exist with science, but I severely doubt it at this point.

@dylangw: I still feel sympathetic towards Anita Sarkeesian, only because a lot of people who hated her hated her because they refused to believe a woman actually played games, and ranted about her critique without watching any of her videos, only about what they assumed she said in them. I have no issue with people disagreeing with her now, as long as they do so respectfully, without attacking or threatening her (or anyone else) and after actually watching all of her videos.

Favorite parts:

  • Kill Bill music
  • Evangelion music (well, technically Frank Sinatra, but it's the Evangelion cover)
  • GameBomb.ru.
  • Vinnie, Brad, Drew, and Matt's pics
  • "When I was his age I was making videos like this IhateyouJeffGerstmann"
  • "He got touched by Diane Sawyer"

Maybe a bunch of fans can work together on a Personabomb game. I'm loving every instance of this crossover so far.

That's great! I wonder where Luchadeer is, though...

I vote Luchadeer or Flight Club Alpaca for the "Teddie" of the group. I also vote Zoe Quinn and Porpentine in as guest party members.

I just started the show for the first time (and got Season 5 spoiled for me so far, which didn't make me happy). I don't know why I didn't watch it sooner.

I haven't read any non-fiction in a very long time, do you have any suggestions?

I only know I don't want to read about the Holocaust. Being Jewish, it hits me too hard emotionally to be able to finish anything related to it.

Gone Home.

Turned out to be a really overrated conversation.

Yeah, did the same thing. It was a fine game, worthy of that amount of praise? Absolutely not, I don't think it's the important game people think it is, just a pretty well done "mystery" game.

It's important for having an openly lesbian protagonist, which very few other games have done. That, and it had good writing. Game-play wise, no, it's not important, but I'd be hard-pressed to name one game in any genre in a few years that didn't do something game-play wise that some other game hadn't already done. I haven't seen something new mechanically since maybe Portal.
