    Things That Are on Your Mind

    one of the less well-thought out decisions of my life was to schedule my driver's test a week after my wisdom teeth were taken out. the swelling did not go down as quickly as I anticipated. some people look like criminals in their license picture... I looked like a chipmunk

    Beginner's Mafia 8: The Game Thread

    Well, not scum. Just inactive. So it goes. Hm, in rereading this... is it really that unlikely? It might actually be a really good strategy. The first people that players are going to suspect are the most active players. There's nothing precluding anyone from posting nothing, just lurking...

    Which game genres do you not like?

    Sports - I'm not good at sports, and I don't like watching sports... so, yeah, there's really very little reason why I would like the genre. (That being said, while I don't like golf, I've actually enjoyed the few golf games I've played.) Fighters and FPS - Nothing against either. I just...

    Things That Are on Your Mind

    my company has a policy of year-round "summer Fridays" of working from home and taking the afternoon off. in my year here, I'm solidly convinced that most people take this to mean "don't work on Friday, at all". have an issue on a friday? good luck, no one is in the office, and no one is...

    Which Book Are You Currently Reading?

    Think Like a Freak by Stephen J. Dubner and Steven D. Levitt The First Family Detail by Ronald Kessler Just ordered a copy of Steve Silberman's NeuroTribes. Should be a good read.

    Things That Are on Your Mind

    My mother's technology prowess never fails to amuse. She tries, but for the most part, the 00s and 10s just didn't happen for her technology-wise... Her latest struggle is with sending pictures she takes on her phone via message. every time, she emails them in an attachment to my work email...

    Most disappointing boss fight?

    it's not the game's fault, but I ruined the final fight in MM for myself. I'd never done it before, with the deity's mask or otherwise. I figured the mask + milk would make things easier, but I didn't expect it to turn me into a monstrous, unstoppable machine. the battle was over in about two...

    It's hard to lynch people when most of the posts are encouraging other people to post :S idk. Maybe I'm trying too hard to read into people's posts when there's nothing there... just need to buckle down and lynch people regardless until something happens. well, nothing to lose, lynch Diego...

    Medicine that tastes good

    They had a liquid version, too. I distinctly remember having a horrible ear infection when I was really young... and my older sister drank my amoxicillin, just because she liked the taste. it did taste good, though. I kind of like the taste of Gaviscon. It's terrible and chalky, yet...

    Annoying Mario Kart Items

    Agreed, that was a terrible mechanic... just had to accept your doom there. I'm not sure if I have any particular item aside from that that really irked me, though. Red shells were annoying as hell when you were flying over jumps, though. There's nothing you can do except drop to your death.

    Best Nintendo Controller.

    I don't know how I spent hours upon hours playing the N64 as a kid. The controllers hurt my hands now if I play for a long time, and I don't have very big hands, either (sob sob haven't grown since I was 12). That being said, I'd take the N64 controller any day over the WiiMote. Have never...

    Banhammer on Pajamas at the Supermarket

    I would never go out in pyjamas; I'd feel ridiculous and sloppy. That being said, what other people wear doesn't impact me in any way, so if they want to wear pyjamas, go ahead and wear pyjamas for all I care. that being said, Tesco also has the right to ban pyjamas. so if that floats their...

    Voice acting in video games

    What's your take on voice acting in video games? A must-have, don't really care, language preference? For a lot of RPGs, it's nice (but not necessary) to have because it can help flesh out characters and give them more characterization. There are some characters I've liked mainly because of...

    Best Video Game Music

    Tales of Legendia. Such a shame Tales uses Motoi Sakuraba's constantly recycled, tired elevator music for every other game. Go Shiina is a genius. Ys series in general. Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together.

    Hm. I'm voting to lynch Shiek. Although the reasons are fair enough, there are lots of constant self-put downs interspersed with the explanation... a little overkill. Could be an attempt to deflect suspicion.

    What Is The WORST Video Game You've Ever Played?

    Best 'mech' anime/manga

    Gundam Wing was my favorite anime in elementary school. Looking back, I have no idea why; it's dry as ****ing dust, and the characters are awful. except for Wufei. he's actually pretty hilarious in retrospect. I'm not into mecha, but I had a friend who was. if you want to go super old...

    Less Popular Childhood Places

    I've been thinking about this for a while, and I honestly don't think I ever went to any "kiddy" places like that as a kid. My mother hated Chuck E. Cheese with a passion and refused on principle to ever take us. I don't think I've ever so much as even been in one. It's just as well, I guess...

    I think cheating on your partner is disgustingly low, but... I find what the Ashley Madison hackers did even more morally reprehensible. Yeah, they're scumbags, but that doesn't give you a free pass to ruin thousands of people's lives. It's one thing to alert spouses that they're being...

    What Annoyed You Today?

    if not rural, it might just be old people in town. Curse 'em. The town my parents live in isn't super small (maybe ~20,000 people), but it's filled with cranky older boomers who think it ruins the sanctity and beauty of the town to have wireless towers built. So, everyone there suffers with...

    What Nationality are you?

    American. Likes? The diverse geography. I've traveled the U.S. pretty extensively, and it still amazes me how vastly different the landscape is from region to region. Dislikes... the blind patriotism some people have bothers me. I don't dislike the US, but I do find it offensive (and...

    How Do You Like Making Characters in Video Games?

    I usually make them look like me. Boring, I know. I'm terrible at coming up with names and usually regret whatever I pick, so it's just safest to go with my own name. That being said, I actually don't really like customizable characters that much. I prefer established character designs...

    Which Anime Are You Currently Watching?

    Good to know. tbh, I'm only a few episodes in and am already confused, but I attributed that to the fact that there are so many characters... it's hard keeping people straight. We'll see how it goes. At least I won't feel too dumb if I'm confused at the end :'D

    Which Anime Are You Currently Watching?

    I picked up Baccano! today. Seems OK. I never watch more than one show at once (mostly because I rarely watch TV to begin with), so with this comes the official death of my attempt at Eureka Seven. I was about three-fourths of the way through it, but ugh. I can't make myself watch any more...

    How strict were your parents?

    Not terribly. Mostly just expectations. My parents have always, always emphasized academics, from day one; doing well in school was a non-negotiable. B's were fine if you honestly tried your hardest, but they were absolutely not OK if you weren't really trying. My dad also insisted on all...

I played briefly once on my brother's computer, and...

    Favorite/Least Favorite Character

    The hat in Minish Cap sucked. Don't remember his name since I played the game a century ago, but I distinctly remember wishing he'd shut the hell up. Ravi was also obnoxious. Favorite character... hm. Tough one. I'm pretty sure I'll post this and then remember some character I'd forgotten...
