    Minecraft Creations

    Just a thread to post screenshots of your favorite Minecraft creations in. I'll start out with a few pictures of the towns we've started building on a server I play on. These represent about a week's worth of work. That sandstone wall took forever by the way. Just a reminder, you can...

    The Official "How Do I Build a Computer" Thread

    It's been brought to my attention that the images do not size correctly in the default ZD theme or the Pokemon Dungeon theme.

    Visiting Other Regions?

    Would you like to visit old regions with Pokemon X and Y? We have not seen something like this since Gen II, but personally I would love for it to return. In a perfect world I'd like to be able to visit every region but such a thing is not likely at all. Short of this, I think it would be...

    Franchises That Failed to Make the Leap into 3D

    This is a thread to discuss games that you thought were fantastic in 2D, but when the market started to shift towards 3D, the franchise began to lose what made it magical. What comes to mind first for me is Castlevania. I love Castlevania games, especially the NES ones, although my favorite...

    American Stupidity and Other Negative Stereotypes of the American People

    I noticed there was a thread on American Exceptionalism in this forum. This is more or less the inverse of that thread. Although the American people hold themselves in high regard, I've noticed that much of the world seems to think much less of us. It's a common stereotype that the average...
