I've been working on losing weight. I tried the Wii, and I've tried Kinect. They get so boring so fast. Instead, I've been using my DDR Universe dance mat to play Marvel vs Capcom 3. I've made it up to the fifth stage using Akuma, Ryu and Spider-man, and I've lost 17 lbs.-Tones
I worked at Target when I was 17. A couple of weeks after Final Fantasy 7 was released, a kid came in with his mom to return an open copy of the game. His reason was that he just didn't like it. The store's return policy forbid the return of open software. Sometimes I did bend the rules, though. I could list items as defective. Being a Final Fantasy fan and lover of FF7, I refused to allow them to return it. I suspected he hadn't even seen the world map yet. I told his mom there was nothing I could do for them. As she walked away, I told the kid, "Be patient, once you get out of Midgar the game opens up a lot more." To this day I wonder if he took my advice.-Q
I was the president of my college's board game club. I was chosen solely because we needed someone who could be there every Saturday to get the games at 1pm, and then lock them up again by 1am. I was usually there that whole time anyway. No one else even ran.-Anonymous
I saved three vacation days all year so I could take off Nov 1 for Uncharted 3, Nov 8 for Modern Warfare 3 and Nov 15 for Assassin's Creed: Revelations. Why didn't I save a day for Nov 11 for Skyrim? It's Veteran's Day. Work is already closed. God bless veterans everywhere.-Ever L.
