The Master System was not a failure; it dominated the console market in Europe.

Yeah, we didn't have enough time to go into other countries when making the show.  But you're right.

So… serious post time. A really, REALLY serious post that was pretty hard to write, but I knew I had to do eventually. It is something that has been on my mind for quite a while, and something that I had repressed time and time again for the past 10 years or so. I have only just started to seriously address it in the past year. If you’re reading this well after I posted it, you can probably already see what this was about, but here it goes, anyway.

I am actually transgender. I know that may come as a huge surprise to most of you, but it’s something that I have been deliberating VERY carefully and sincerely for a decade now, and I know I am happier for it. For the past three years in particular, I have been trying to reconcile all of this by thinking “What if I’m just gay?”, and I thought that worked for a while. It might have seemed like it was working from the outside, but I have actually been dealing with an eating disorder and depression for a long time now. It was only when I started considering the possibility of being trans again did all of that start to go away. It especially started to improve when I got out to Washington, and could start fresh. Being in an environment where people see me for who I am has improved my mental well-being considerably, and I never want to go back.

Another thing that might surprise you is that I've already been doing something about this. I have been in therapy about this for several months now, with different therapists and getting lots of different opinions and help. Moreover, late last October, I started on hormone replacement therapy with the help of a doctor. And you know what? I have never felt better. I can actually feel happy now. Happy for longer than just maybe an hour at a time, and happy not because of something extraordinary, but just because. Plus, I am no longer ashamed of how I look. I can actually look at myself in the mirror again. I no longer feel like there’s something fundamentally, implacably wrong with my body. I no longer feel an overarching sense of dull malaise each day. I feel so much joy whenever I can see myself as a girl, and so much dread when I can’t. Even just hearing my real name from other people brings such a smile to my face. I finally feel… at peace.

Even if you can’t quite understand this, that’s okay. I know that it must seem like a foreign concept to many of you, so I’m not asking you to fully get everything about this right away. What I am asking is something far simpler: Please call me by my real name - Victoria. Also, please use feminine pronouns when referring to me. Even something as simple as that makes a big difference to me.
All that said, I would like to reintroduce myself to you all. My name is Victoria. I am a girl. I am finally happy with who I am. All of you are my friends and family, and you’re very important to me. I just hope that we can continue to be like that. After all, I’m still the same person I always was - I’m just a lot happier for getting a couple of problems fixed. :)

Someone needs to explain to Ubisoft what "exclusive" means.

I just got accepted into Digipen. I'm fairly certain it's reputable based on things I have researched; plus, James Portnow teaches there, so I'm sure the EC team would approve. :)

Actually, we DID get more games in the Warsong series in the US. You may know the series today better as Growlanser, as it saw its way onto the PS2 thanks to Working Designs, as well as a localized PSP game.

The first time I went to this restaurant, it was in the afternoon on a weekend. I waited 10 minutes for a table, while the two waitresses sat in a booth having a lenghty conversation. Eventually, one of the waitresses came over and said "Everyone is on break. Come back in 4 hours." What kind of restaurant goes on an unannounced break during normal hours? I was absolutely dumbfounded. I did go back to the restaurant about two months after that, and I found the decor to be shallow, the food unable to pass muster if it was on a grocery store convenience rack, the waitstaff to be rude, and the prices woefully exorbitant for the quality of food I was getting. Avoid thus place at all costs.

After 5 nonconsecutive attempts, I have never been able to actually depart from the Houghton airport. Every single time, the flight has been cancelled. Twice, when the flight was cancelled, I was not allowed a refund for my flight, even though I was entitled one, and once, after the flight was cancelled, all flights for the next 8 days were, as well. In my most recent failure, my flight was cancelled for mechanical problems, and I was not given the option to rebook to a later flight, but the flight leaving later that day departed with no hassles. Houghton airport is the demon that haunts my dreams and I cringe in disgust whenever I am reminded of its wretched existence. I will curse the Houghton airport with my dying breath. In short, it is not a very good airport.
