I got Wizardry 6 & 7. Thank you!

Jeff mentioned that he had a copy of Akira he never watched. I bet they'd both get a kick out of it.

I thought it was generally inoffensive. Definitely better than the first two Transformers movies (I thought Dark of the Moon was actually pretty fun).

The common refrains of Be Yourself and It Gets Better seem a little disingenuous when you add family to the mix. But trust me on this. If you put your happiness first, and your family really loves you, they'll have your back when they see that you're living the life you should be living.

I don't think your sister's reaction was an accurate reflection of how she feels. I think it stems from a part of her that feels like she's losing her brother. Give it time, and she'll be able to articulate how she really feels. Once she realizes that you're not a different person, but rather living on the outside the way you've been feeling on the inside for your entire life, she'll be in your corner.

I went through something similar a while ago. If you want to see how everything worked out for me, you could browse through this thread. For what it's worth, I think you sought help in the right forums. The Giant Bomb community can work some serious magic.

At the retailer I work at, we have a binder from Nintendo reps about how to properly sell Nintendo stuff or some shit. There are a few fun facts in there, notably one about how that garbage from the movie with Mario being Mario's first and last name is true. If this Yoshi garbage is canon, that bullshit has to be canon too. It comes from official Nintendo marketing material.

I had the same thoughts last year. Joel made the wrong choice, but it's the same one I would've made. Humanity as portrayed in the game didn't seem like it was worth saving.

Hunter. I love the cloaks. Honestly, the biggest difference between the classes seems to be cosmetic. Gear seems to have a much bigger impact on how I play.

I loved the way the Mako controlled. I just hated the missions designed around it.

Does anyone know how long the inactivity timer is? I have to go to work when they're handing out the emblems. If I could leave the game running all day without getting kicked, and still get the emblem, that would be fine. I'll still miss out on the moon event, though. Which is a bummer.

There's no inactivity timer

I definitely got booted while letting my dude dance in the Tower for a few hours before.
