Aw I missed the Nintendo talk!

Nintendo unlike Sony and Micro$oft don't sell their consoles at a loss, they don't believe in it and apparently never have, so that's no worry.

With regard to the casual thing, there's a massive number of normal gamers out there that recognise the brilliant games Nintendo come out with, such as myself. Mario Galaxy 2 is probably the finest platform game ever made, period, and they have always come up with some brilliant games when they needed to (F-Zero GX is also the best racing game ever made)

Indeed, they are looking to widen their focus compared to the Wii as well. ZombiU is the only game that is coming as part of a bundle, they've got the latest COD shitfest, and they have the exclusivity of Bayonetta 2 (because nobody else would fund it) but still, I loved the first.

Oh, and with the premium pack you get 10% off all online purchases for a year, which will end up helping me a heck of a lot. Even more than the fact that Nintendo just let you buy the amount of points they actually need for the game, unlike some other companies.

Make sure to stay away from the hotels.

I hear they're nice, but you can't ever leave.

My cousin has signed for Arsenal Ladies Academy. Haven't seen her for about a decade admittedly but I'm proud of her nonetheless. :)

I got rid of a spider without squealing and dropping it from shaking. :D

Admittedly it was pretty small (but not tiny!), but I managed to overcome the mental block - I stood there watching it and thought "holy fuck it's a spider what do I do what do I do quick run" but I kept looking at it and suddenly thought "...let's put it outside".

I AM INVINCIBLE.

My mum freaked out earlier cause I had a spider trying to crawl onto my face. It weren't harming anyone. Why would you go apeshit at it. Poor spider. :<
I greatly enjoyed the reference, Joe.

Hey, it was just a little one to start with! I'm not about to set up a pest control service. :lol:
