This a game idea I'm going to pursue after NaNoRenO, so why did I spent all this time drawing it instead of working on Terminal? Hmmm.

Ooh, shounen-ai.... I think Yuki's into that a little bit (hee hee) :wink:
Let us know when you finish, please!
If you've been sitting there for more than a couple hours, it's time to take a break and play some basketball or volleyball! :-D

Oooh , interesting.
Not only is it shounen ai , but it does seem like it will be a horror / thriller or murder / mayhem type game!

In the spirit of quotes that are trying to be a proverb,
You can try sharpening a field of knifes, but you'll never cut bread.
Sorry I can't stay with things easily my mind like to wander and come up with new ideas before I finish my old ones. :oops:

... why?

Since that's only been publically released for a week or so, it's not like you're an expert in it. Nor, I suspect, have you developed a renai engine with it. Whereas there are several fully-developed ones already available.... :)

FACT:In 2002, there were 30,242 gun deaths in the U.S:
17,108 suicides (56% of all U.S gun deaths),
11,829 homicides (39% of all U.S gun deaths),
762 unintentional shootings (3% of all U.S gun deaths),
and 300 from legal intervention and 243 from undetermined intent (2% of all U.S gun deaths combined).
-Numbers obtained from CDC National Center for Health Statistics mortality report online, 2005.
FACT: Comparison of U.S. gun homicides to other industrialized countries:
In 1998 (the most recent year for which this data has been compiled), handguns murdered:
373 people in Germany
151 people in Canada
57 people in Australia
19 people in Japan
54 people in England and Wales, and
11,789 people in the United States
(*Please note that these 1998 numbers account only for HOMICIDES, and do not include suicides, which comprise and even greater number of gun deaths, or unintentional shootings).

p.s Yes I am procrastinating again.

Heh, that reminds me of something... *searches his HD*
Ah, found it:
MCDP (Marine Corps Doctrinal Publication) 1-1: Strategy (you can find those on the net, at least those that aren't classified... )
Chapter 1, Page 15:
"For example,
over a 25-year period—1969 through 1994—some 3,000
people were killed in Northern Ireland for an average of 120
deaths per year in a population of 1.5 million.5 For that same
period, there were approximately 291 murders per year committed
in Washington, D.C. in an average population of
642,000. " (That was during the civil war)
Hm, I better don't comment on it, else I break the "no politics" rule.

I should point out, BTW, that DC has one of the strictest gun control laws in the country.

Procrastinate? Well, of course! From gun control to yoghurt drink in one post!

I would also say that the whole buzz about Actimel is based only on clever marketing. It is actually scientifically proven, that the drink does NOT strengthen your body's defence mechanisms, and there are several university authorities who oppose, even tried to sue Danone because of misleading customers.
