  1. Lady Gaga

    Downloaded this today and I think there's a lot to love! The highlight for me is Gypsy, but Sexx Dreams like you said is great too! Other highlights for me include Venus, G.U.Y. and I quite like Dope too. They're mainly what I can think of, there's a few songs I'm not mad about but lots of decent songs too. I love how the album ends with Applause, a song I like but not love. I definitely like it more hearing it at the end of the album for some reason; especially after the high energy of Gypsy which I think it conplements very well!
  2. Weight Loss and Fitness 2013

    Does doing too much cardio in the same session as a weights session have negative effects on muscle building? And if so how much? I always feel like just doing weights is over too quickly, and find myself running for 20mins to half an hour after.
  3. Maybe she was pissed you didn't offer first? Or you didn't make enough eye contact...either way, annoying.
  4. Does this guy know you are gay? I know he mentioned the girls at Wimbledon but he might not be comfortable with himself and hiding behind that. If you leave a little bit of information out about yourself he might be more relaxed about being himself. I know it's probably wishful thinking and not good to think like that if you like him but I had a similar situation a few years ago, but I left it and found out he was gay about a year later.
  5. 3DS Console Discussion

    Thanks man! Hopefully I'll manage to find time to get into online a bit more. I'll definitely head over there once I do and especially if/when I get Animal Crossing!
  6. 3DS Console Discussion

    Hey guys, just wanted to say thanks again to everyone who gave me some great advice a few weeks ago! I bought a 3DS XL in the end, very happy with my purchase! I got OOT 3d, Mario 3D Land, and Mario Kart. 3d Land has been taking up most of my time, the nature of the game is great for a handheld experience; I'm always playing it on the train to/from work! On to the last world now. Am a little excited for 3D World on Wii U, I may have to get a Wii U at Christmas. Played a little but of Mario Kart, its great as always. Online looks great so will have to try to get into that! OOT is great as expected but haven't played too much yet, only just seen Zelda for the first time. My next wanted games are Luigi's Mansion 2, Donkey Kong, and Animal Crossing...tempted by New Super Mario Bros too! There are a lot of great games on 3DS at the moment. There's a promotion after starting this week here in Australia where you get a free game if you buy a regular 3DS, a bit annoying as I don't qualify! I prefer the XL anyway though.
  7. 3DS Console Discussion

    Thanks for all the suggestions guys! I really did not think the 3DS had so many great titles already, I suppose it has been out for nearly two years though. Looks like I'll be having a busy Winter Sell some unwanted games/items? Give up alcohol for a few weeks?
  8. 3DS Console Discussion

    Thanks guys! I hadn't actually thought of downloadable games, in terms of virtual console games I definitely want to get Links Awakening to re play that! Are there many decent non-vc games on the e-shop? I'll definitely look at Fire Emblem and Kid Icarus too, they look like fun!
  9. 3DS Console Discussion

    I am tempted to get that Pikachu 3DS :P Unfortunately I'm living in Australia so can't avail of the Game offer I think I'll check a few more shops to see if they have any regular 3DS' out, would like to see how I go with the smaller screen. I've played my cousins before but can't really remember how big the screen is. I'll still probably get the XL though, the screen looked pretty sweet when I played it! What are people's favourite games? I think I'll buy Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart first. I'm tempted to get OOT 3D too but it feels like a waste to buy the same game three times! Especially since we have a Wii in our house so I can get it for ~$10.
  10. 3DS Console Discussion

    Thanks for your opinions guys! Looks like the XL is the way to go. I had a play with one in the shops yesterday. While it does look a bit cumbersome and not as slick as the regular 3DS, I think the positives outweigh the negatives especially with the bigger screen. Looking forward to some Nintendo goodness again That wallet looks great. I think I will try to get something similar, I don't want it getting bashed around in my bag! Also I fear I will have the same thing as you- I will probs get Animal Crossing in a couple of weeks! I will be wearing a suit on the train to/from work though; playing Animal Crossing like a boss
  11. Tennis 2013

    If you have a smartphone the Eurosport app is quite good. They don't cover every court but at an event like Roland Garros will usually cover the two main courts and possibly one or two more depending on who is playing. I think the website probably shows the commentary too. I'm finding it great for during RG as their app is awful! You can access "Radio Roland Garros" on their website too. I'm not sure how good it is but I've used Radio Wimbledon a lot in the past which I found good, I presume they take the same format; focusing on one main match but moving around for updates on other courts every couple of change of ends.
  12. 3DS Console Discussion

    Quick question: In general do people think the 3DS XL is superior to the regular 3DS? Considering buying one soon. Obviously a bigger screen would be nice but does it feel cumbersome or heavy to anyone? I would mostly be using it at home or on the train to work, but carry a bag to work so size isn't that big a concern in that regard. Also I presume the so many games promotion is only in Europe? I'm in Australia but a quick google only mentions Nintendo Europe.
  13. Horsemeat

    My one worry is that apparently a horse steroid that can be harmful to humans is rumoured to have been found in some samples. On my phone now so can't link though. Other than that once there's no safety issue I don't really mind, though the labelling is an issue.
  14. Couldn't find him last night Not that I know what he looks like, or if he even lives in my area. Which is how it works I think?
  15. I have looked at it a few times, just for a laugh really and to see if I knew anyone on it. Never put up a picture or messaged anyone on it though haha, I'd be too mortified.
  16. Things that people say that wind you up

    When people are confused about something and respond as if you're in the wrong. It's hard to describe but a girl at work does it all the time. She'll come over mid conversation and be like "No no you see blah blah..." So frustrating! You don't even know what we were talking about and took what we were saying completely out of context! It's very hard to keep calm telling her she's wrong then haha Not really an annoying thing but I've seen the odd few people who's emails will have a "www" in them. As in "[email protected]". Always makes me laugh a little when I see it on Facebook!
  17. Thanks Danny! I've decided I'll stay the extra three months. Going in January feels way more attractive in my head, but staying the extra few months seems like the best decision in the long run. If I go in January I get to see my boyfriend sooner, get to enjoy the summer, and a lot of other festivals etc etc. But I need to maximise my chances of getting a decent job! And hopefully coming later will mean I'll get to enjoy many more summers over there in the future Plus I'm really liking my job, especially the people I work with, and finishing in three weeks seems way too soon!
  18. That is true! Don't think I'll be visiting a sperm bank anytime soon though haha. I thought I read somewhere that new Wii's now don't contain backwards compatibility with GameCube games? I must have got mixed up. I know the Wii U doesn't, I'll see what happens when I get over anyway. I keep changing my mind. This morning was convinced I would stay but then wasn't so sure and now I'm back to square one!
  19. 3DS Console Discussion

    Everything is expensive in Australia haha. But I'll hopefully be earning over there so it should be okay!
  20. I didn't quite understand that bit at first either haha. Written down it doesn't seem like a big deal but for some reason 3 months seems quite long. Also re getting a Wii U...I already have no idea what to do with all the games/consoles I have at the moment! If I leave them here I know they'll get lost/thrown out. I had thought of buying a Wii over there and bringing some Wii/GC games in a sleeve holder but now I hear new Wii's don't play GameCube games? This could possibly be the real issue.
  21. That's the thing, it probably is insignificant in the long term but right now seems really long. I think the extra few months would benefit me, but at the same time over a ~40 year career maybe not? I think I'll find something in Australia either way but I really don't know. I guess I'm a little paranoid. People always say how easy it is to get stuff over there but I don't really believe it, no-ones going to hand me a job! We did long distance last year for 7 months, was do-able but annoying. If I stayed this would be our longest consecutive time apart though, as we saw each other for 3 weeks in the middle of our time apart last year. It's just a bit frustrating as we thought we were done with time apart! I almost wish I hadn't got that offer, though its nice to know I'm doing a good job.
  22. I'm in a bit of a dilemma. I'm currently in a long distance relationship (sort of), my boyfriend lives in Australia. He was here for about a year until a couple of weeks ago, and I was planning on moving over there in January after Christmas. All good. My contract at work was ending in December, so things looked perfect. However yesterday my boss asked me if I'd like to extend my contract until the end of March, with a bit more responsibility. As a recent graduate, the extra experience would probably really help my chances getting a job down under. But I really don't want to go back to long distance.
  23. 3DS Console Discussion

    This might be a silly or easily answered question, but how does the region lock on the 3DS work? Is it region free for retail games like the regular DS? With you only being able to download games from the region you bought it in? Or is there a proper lock like with the Wii? I am thinking of buying one soon, but moving to Australia next year. As far as I know they are a PAL region anyway? But would I have worse online performance if I was connecting to European servers from all the way there?
  24. Far Cry 3

    I keep seeing this advertised on 4oD. Although I promised myself I wouldn't buy it after seeing the 100th time, it does look interesting. I had Far Cry 2 but never really got into it, I might have a play of that first instead...
