I had mixed feelings on it. It certainly isn't a bad game but nor does it live up to the original. I feel that for every aspect they improved another was made worse. I agree with a lot of your points though, the plot was a lot weaker. It wasn't terribly original in some places either, the finale is just a less epic… » 4/15/14 11:34am Tuesday 11:34am

I live in an apartment and have my desk and gaming PC in a corner of my bedroom but it's connected to the TV in the living room via a really long HDMI cable. I also have a long ass USB repeater (I probably need a repeater for the HDMI as the sound can be choppy at times) connected to a powered hub under the TV. It's… » 4/12/14 5:36pm Saturday 5:36pm

The whole dickwolves controversy had mistakes on both sides. Penny Arcade did not react to it well, and it certainly hasn't helped them. But frankly the root blame lies with the people who took offence at it and started labelling it a "rape joke". Rape was not the punchline, the comic was about how MMO quests are about… » 4/12/14 11:21am Saturday 11:21am

Sounds like it sucks for everyone involved. Pepsi too, sure the company hired the guy but I doubt they were fully aware of what a sexist dickwad he is. Or maybe they were, who knows. Either way most of the blame is squarely on his shoulders, glad they had the sense to shitcan his ass immediately. » 4/02/14 6:39pm 4/02/14 6:39pm

Jigglypuff, Yoshi, Captain Falcon, and Ness are almost guaranteed to return. I think if they were to bench any of the original roster they'd have done it before now. Although if any were to go I'd imagine it'd be Jigglypuff on the chopping block. It's just not as current (Pikachu is always current) a Pokémon as it was… » 4/02/14 9:27am 4/02/14 9:27am

There's the gecko ending, which is like the "typical" adaptation where it follows the material faithfully and then just slaps a made up ending on there. A good example is the original Negima anime (although it's not like the manga ending faired much better) which has for some reason this ridiculously depressing (well it… » 3/31/14 5:44pm 3/31/14 5:44pm

Nope, it was about Skyblades heinous misunderstanding that Wacom serves a different market to consumer tablets. A market that had yet (at the time, although still largely true now) to be intruded on with any significant competition. That his claim that Wacom was going to die in the next couple of years was completely… » 3/31/14 8:17am 3/31/14 8:17am

Starting to think that the new Kinja comments are a lot like one of the Gawker redesigns (the one with the "Hot" view and the "blog view" ). The default view (highlights) is crappy and the other view (all replies) isn't terribly different from how things were before. Although "all replies" is an improvement as expanding… » 3/24/14 11:38am 3/24/14 11:38am
