My parents and I just finished watching a seminar entitled "Media on the Brain" which shows how Video Games actually strengthen the Limbic System (the part of the brain that controls emotions, impulses, animalistic instincts, the "Fight or Flight" instinct, etc.) and weakens the Frontal Lobe. (which controls your sense of compassion, your self-control, your conscience, all da good stuff, etc.) So, my parents are thinking about making me go on a "Video Game Fast" (I'm grounded) for a month, just to see if I act any different. So..... I probs can't make it to this tourney. D:

Edit: (Shout-out to Player -0!) Also, we're Christians, (shout-outs to Jesus!) so if VGs interfere with my walk with God, it's a problem. :/

Edit2: Also, I have a 3DS, but I almost never play it. Like, maybe 2 times a month. I think it might be because I only have 3 games, NSMB2, Fire Emblem: Awakening (Custom Character for SM4SH!!!) and Angry Birds Trilogy. I might start playing it if I get SM4SH, or I could sell it. Which do you think I should do?

Wow, that's brutal... Although I got you covered, man. Show them this one:

For me, games calm me down (physically proven by a medstudent-friend lol), so it's a benefit for me. (shrug)

After many cycles, I have bought these games numerous times, and have run completely out of money. I thought I could still go on as long as I was having fun with the games, but after so many 100% runs I stopped having fun; I even broke all the speedrun records.
I have resorted to eating the game manuals, providing the minimum nourishment my body requires. Perhaps if nintendo hadn't gone green with their packaging, the larger manuals could sustain me more efficiently.
PLEASE SEND HELP
Excited for the tournament, gonna tell -0 and Soni about it and RSVP when I know I can get them to come.

Wait, why random shoutouts to me?

____________________________
Not sure if I'll be able to attend. If I come I might be able to actually do team stuff.

And not start choking in Dubz and trying to Spin to Win too hard

Edit - Could you explain an extinction tournament? I'm not really sure what it is. Might be a TFG thingy.

Edit 2 - Is probably the tournament name.

I might come, I lucked out on the last one because all of my plans fell through like a fat guy through the roof of the doughnut shop. Depends. I'll talk to a few friends, I'm definitely not coming alone. :/
