    Hey! Write back if you get this. We gotta catch up sometime.

  2. I think that's just the modern shiny anime aesthetic which is pretty common. Some of the designs aren't particularly inspired, but others are pretty unique.
  3. Why are you studying accounting? What did you enjoy about economics? Would switching to something else (economics?) close or open any doors for you? If you can't answer those, Rapier made great suggestions on how to go about some research. Personally I'd solicit thoughts from accounting and economics majors on Facebook or Reddit. Ask what they studied, what their work entails, and if they wish they'd done things differently. You'll find lots of people would jump at the chance to share their story and offer advice. You only need a few replies to get an idea of where each major might take your life and career and how those might jive with your talents. That's at least what I wish I had thought to do. My career guidance was useless, the pre-requisites seemed irrelevant, and I lacked the experience and imagination to picture what jobs I could get. In my case I switched majors when I shouldn't have, but you shouldn't bias yourself toward you original choice if you have other good options.
  4. Somehow I'm not surprised this thread is still active.
  5. Sorry to ask about such an awful memory, but what's a zodiac and what would attack you in one? I'm guessing it's wildlife or military related?

      It has! I drop off the radar a lot...Sorry I missed you in the spring. Did you enjoy your trip?

      I'm doing alright. Not sure what I want to do with my life so trying some new hobbies. How have you been?

    I never even realised you did a name change. I wish the forum would give us notifications for this.

      Hey. Yeah, you'd expect it would given name changes have been supported for like 10 years now.

  9. I disabled voice mail and never pick up for unknown numbers. I look up numbers from missed calls; if they clearly have no legitimate reason to have called then I block them. I don't advise this; there are obvious flaws to this approach. But it's how I've handled the torrent of spam calls I receive after my ISP leaked my number. I have a friend who (if at home) plays gunshot noises (from his computer) and yells "I've been shot!" before hanging up. No idea how effective it's been though. Maybe we should compare notes.

    You don't happen to still exist, do you? Nightmarre, Zeph, and I made a group on Discord, but it's missing one member.

  11. There are plenty of designs I like, some more than the one's I list. But I wouldn't be as comfortable nominating them as examples of great design as this lot. FE7 - Pent Pent looks stellar. I could say more... but I'm not sure I need to. FE7 - Lloyd If you ignore the belts, Lloyd is well put together. Cool and professional, but something about his shirt and earring betray humble beginnings. His outfit suits him perfectly for who he is: the dutiful son of a once principled mercenary, and a villain whose not actually trying to be a villain. Just a shame about the belts... seriously! FE9/FE10 - Titania I don't like Senri Kita's art. But Titania's design is fantastic. She looks strong, brave, and experienced, but also kind and reliable. Her armour is great: clearly feminine and plausible (especially the RD design). And the huge ponytail was a bold choice, but it works great with her distinctive colour scheme. Probably one of the best FE designs to date. FE15 - Tobin SoV Tobin's design has grown on me. I think I agree with everyone who mentioned him. Nothing much I can add on what's already been said. He just looks... how he should... and yet, I don't know, there's just something strangely eye-catching about his design.
  12. Maybe. It could affect prices for some services. For example, imagine Netflix has to spend more to reach American consumers. They could raise prices in the US to make up the difference. Or, they could raise prices across the world, but by less because more subscribers are paying the difference. This kind of international cross subsidisation isn't uncommon. But even if they take this route, it might not affect prices in your country if the video streaming market where you live is sufficiently competitive.
  13. Any chance @VincentASM or another FESSer might know?
  14. I don't have a problem cutting characters off. I tune out the voices when I do it. But I'm used to that from other games. I can see how it would feel odd if you're not. Though it sounds like you've just never liked it. How'd you do with the VA for Awakening and Fates? I found them distracting. But I'm curious how you felt as the spoken lines were so much shorter. I'm not sure what you mean here. If you have a chance, can you explain what having "Dual Audio on" would mean?
  15. It's terrible your SIL had to bear that for 10 years. I've heard this about the tech industry in general, but it seems particularly bad in the games industry. Heteronormative men have apparently established masculine bubbles and don't want to see them rocked or "invaded". I imagine it's why the glass ceiling is still a problem. I think this was more apparent in smaller companies, but when I was briefly in insurance qualified women were routinely interviewed and invariably passed over for executive positions because they didn't fit the "company culture"... which was just code for "we wouldn't feel as comfortable hanging out at the pub with them after work". It was a lame excuse to peddle the myth they supported equal opportunity while actively working against it. And then some people go on to claim women don't want those jobs anyways... it's hypocritical and absurd.
