Thats silly. Isn't it obvious? I'd choose a tennis ball over another person any day!

You have all of CCS?! Ahhh... a kindred spirit... Bet you were mad when you found out they were releasing the box sets... I could've saved so much money T_T You have a pretty good collection. Is that the complete Someday's dreamers collection? Is it only three DVDs? I saw the first episode, and I r...

It's the last day of October.
October 31st.
So it'd be not this Monday coming up but the one after (if you know what I mean!).

Good luck with your project. Nice idea to make a game for an ocassion like Halloween.

I think I have about 137. (And growing! :P) I also have a bunch of old single issues that I got in a sale, from back when Graphic Novels were uncommon here (sure am glad that Graphic Novels have trounced single issues, easier to keep up with). :) And quite a lot of anime magazines and a few Japanese...

*Sigh* I can't handle torrents.... If I could I would be testing them right now... but I just don't go well with torrents. If you need help with torrents PM me with whatever you have a problem with and maybe I can help. I'd be glad to offer any advice I can. :) Looks like a very interesting lineup,...

So, nothing really. :) I was just conveying why some may prefer to use Japanese wording like with subs vs dubs. I don't agree with calling them "Japanese wannabes" as an insult. :? Accuracy of the various terminology is up for debate I suppose. :D People still debate over what encompasses "Sci-Fi". ...

True a FAQ should stay neutral and it seems that is a point that is debatable so perhaps it shouldn't be there. That post sounds a bit in the other direction.... As someone said earlier though, in Japan they seem to often say ADV instead of game so someone truly wanting to stick to Japanese terminol...

You could make a game about being a superhero with a secret identity - your wife doesn't know what you do in your spare time! So you've got to keep the secret, keep the city safe, maintain your civilian persona, AND try to make your wife happy. Keep track of what excuses you've used so far this mon...

It's a good point really. Like I said about that adventure game, as with many games and stories in any media it all ends when you've saved the world and you don't really get to explore how this big change you made to the world affected each of the people you met during the course of the game. But as...

You win the girl's heart, good ending. Yeah, almost always this is the main aim. It's all about getting a resolution/conclusion (whatever it may be). But that really is the basis of all plotlines I think. A massive amount of movies/books/games are all about "beat the bad guy/organisation, good endi...

I'm short on time these days so err can't helpa s much as I'd like. PyTom said the main areas of interest.
