Meh, I guess its up to the recording labels...

And my very queer yet private side kinda likes Avril Lavigne.

OCR suffers from music elitism. As soon as something seems to target a different crowd, people here roll their eyes.

Take Linkin Park. I would not buy a CD, but still, I don't hate their music. Heck, some I like to hear on the radio because it changes from hearing the same pop songs over and over. However saying that would brand me as an emo goth wannabe loser.

I won't hate an artist (unless they do some hypocritical or dirtbag things), but I don't have to like them. I wish more people took this viewpoint around here. There're too many OCRers (seems more prevalent in unmod) who will claim to hate an artist for no good reason.

Clovers add to your luck rating no matter where you place them in the house.

Back to EBA bitching...you guys can defend the song list all you want, but when roughly half the songs in the game are garbage to the people that are likely to buy it, there is a reason to be a bit miffed.

Does it have to be in your house? Or can you wear it and still get the luck rating? And what does the luck rating go towards? Fishing, finding fossils, etc?

I don't like the Rolling Stones or Bowie either. However, the original Japanese game has some artists I do like some stuff of like Nightwish, Stratovarius, and Epica, so it'd be more towards my preference.

I used to like Nightwish back when i thought it was cool to pretend to be depressed. :lol:

I see you still harbor a lack of understanding of the music & lyrics. It's ok, I'll let that flame attempt go by.

This is the same response i've seen from so many Nirvana fans.

Well I dislike Nirvana. But why don't you go look up the lyrics most of their stuff? Most don't fall into your false stereotyping.

Well, if anything, their instrumental Moondance is to be loved (one of my friends hates Nightwish, but loves that particular instrumental - he doesn't like the vocals). Some of the lyrics do have some humor in them - there is one particular song that just makes me laugh when I hear it from their first album, and Tuomas has said that he wished he didn't write that song while drunk. A lot of their Oceanborn-Wishmaster era stuff is fantasy themed though. You may or may not like their more recent stuff since it takes the band in an operatic direction (lyrically as well), so intensity of dramatic situations is depicted strongly.

This is a bit sidetracking though. So when does Phantom Hourglass come out anyone? (And Castlevania)

October 24- Touch Detective, Magical Starsign

October 31- Children of Mana

November 6- Elite Beat Agents

Toys R Us is having a sale from the 23rd to the 29th in which all games are under a buy 2 get 1 free policy (counts for any system and as far as I understand you can mix and match systems)

And also speaking of Clubhouse Games, is anyone playing it? It's a great timekiller.

Hmmm, Contact feels like a sleeper hit. I'm reading about it on Wikipedia and it looks nifty.

How does it play anyway? Kinda like Secret of Mana but with touch for menues, or is it touch centered?

Here's what IGN had to say about it.

Here are the metacritic scores/reviews.

I understand it to be touch-centered gameplay. Seems kinda like the battle system is a little boring, but the rest looks fun. Once I get back into playing my DS, I'm probably gonna get it.

It plays like an MMORPG in that you can see all the enemies on the field and when you go into battle, you only have control over skills and whatnot. Terry attacks automatically, and keeps attacking, until the battle is over. You can interuppt him by using the aforementioned skills and items and whatnot.

The localization is great; lots of humor and whatnot, graphics are interesting: the screens are different. One shows Terry in a more "realistic" looking world while the other shows the professor in all his 16-bit sprite glory. The professor talks to you, the player, and gives you tasks, and then you turn around and guide Terry through his world to achieve those tasks.

EDIT- Also, it's only $28.88 at Outpost.com

Okay, Animal Crossing question...when I ask Pelly about the enviroment, she reads a letter that says "Blahblah is clean and all, but something is missing." then says "We need to all work together to make blahblah a great place to live!"

The question...what the hell is missing?

Try planting more flowers and trees. And make sure there's no trash or weeds or anything on the ground.

Thanks. A friend said something about needing at least 3 flowers in each "acre", so that's probably it.

Also note that you can never have too many flowers in your town (according to a FAQ I read). That is, if every spot you can walk on in your town has flowers on it, no one will complain about it, so plant new ones every day.
