Re: The number 1 conundrum

To me it's more about sexism than actual effort. I don't think either gender should demand the other to do something with the toilet if they can't offer a legitimate reason for it. Leaving the bathroom to stink? Okay, that's a good reason, but urine doesn't leave much in the way of smell after you f...

The number 1 conundrum

I've been thinking about something that has always brought my piss to a boil. In most modern societies, any bathroom that is used by at least one female is ruled by the ominous commandment of leaving the toilet seat down after use. The question is: why? I've asked this to several women, and neither ...

Re: What are you playing today?

I bought Lost Winds , finished it in one sitting and never went back to it. It took me about 3 hours, I think, but I enjoyed it. I just keep forgetting I have it, so I guess it's not all that memorable. I want to try the Bit Trip games definitely I only recommend these if you have a lot of patience ...

Re: Slash, wheeze, slash, wheeze

Finished the sixth dungeon. There's nothing as annoying as Wind Waker (at least not yet) Soon enough, child. SOON ENOUGH. Just so we're clear, you're talking about the tadnotes, right?

Re: Slash, wheeze, slash, wheeze

Midna offered you advice if you asked for it, or if it took you too long to solve a certain problem. Fi tells you that a boss key chest has an 85% probability of containing a boss key.

I probably wouldn't mind her so much if she didn't treat the player like a retard.

Okay. I'll gu...

I didn't mind the Triforce quest.

I had a lot of fun finding out what I was gonna find on the next unexplored island. Wind Waker real...

I think this is the only time I've really cared about Zelda as a character. Sure, she's not her usual royal, knowledgeable and quasi-holy self, but in turn, she's much more relatable and less bland. She acts like your typical girl next door, and since she's been Link's best friend since they were li...

Re: Software is for pussies.

I've always assumed there were no restrictions about that sort of thing.

They were showing off the Vita near...

Re: Sega release trailer for.. Sonic CD? What?

It's a lovely port, for sure. The only thing that bugs me is how getting all the ring UFOs in succession no longer nets you 300 rings. I'm sure that was the case in the PC demo, at least. I tried registering at that Sonic Retro forum to tell Christian that, but they have some kind of asinine approva...

Re: Ever wonder what Sonic's singing voice would sound like?

These are all fanwank. Aw. Well, that's a shame. I'm generally terrible at making out the lyrics in songs, let alone when they're sung in broken Engrish with all sorts of background noise going on. In response to the original post, I think Sonic just works better with instrumental songs. However, I...

There were these idiots at the Sonic Retro forum saying the words were "Egg's gonna kill you, Egg's gonna kill you, Egg's gonna kill you, oh no oh no" (seriously) which I found so deeply revolting that I spent a long time listening to that part of the song over and over until I came up with that.

Re: Don't step in the Pharaoh

What's wrong with just sticking to final thoughts? The only inconvenient I can see with that is the disappearance of aggregate scores, but those are even more bullshit by default anyway. When I'm dubious about a game, I usually just visit forums or read the general consensus about it on Wikipedia, n...

This is really just complaining for the sake of complaining. There will always, always be people out there who do it, no matter how ridiculous their reasons are.

Re: So I'm an ambassador now

I'm mostly concerned with how ugly things get when they're squashed. Older games aren't that bad, but everyone seems to enjoy watching TV in 16:9 regardless of the intended aspect ratio. Everything gets so squashed it looks like someone sat on the Farnsworth Parabox. Some Master System games have a ...

I have tried multiple times to try and understand why anyone would want to kill the original aspect ratio just to cover the entire screen. But I can't. It just seems stupid to me no matter how I look at it. So yeah, black bars. I'm fine with zooming as long as the original aspect ratio is kept and i...
