Unexpected Audience, such as Brony fandom

I'd have no problem with them simply liking the show. But to give your fanbase a name in a vein similar to the Beliebers and attend massive conventions and suddenly talk about it at length in every profile you've ever created...<br /><br />That's creepy. You can't spin that any other way. And that's...

Unexpected Audience, such as Brony fandom

Bronies are creepy, and I've never seen anything like it. To me, games like Pokemon or Mario are for all ages and games like Tomb Raider are for both genders. Call of Duty might qualify, I don't know.

Bronies are a rare case though and I hope there's never another thing like them.

Controllers: Most comfortable and least comfortable?

The Gamecube and PS2 controllers are the most comfortable ones I've used.

Atari never made great controllers, the 2600 one was bad and the rest of them don't even need to be mentioned.

New PS2s still on Amazon

[QUOTE=Gentlegamer]My original slim PS2 stopped reading discs, so they're not infallible.[/QUOTE]
Well nothing's infallible, but the slim PS2s are as close as you can get. I've had a 2600 break on me and I'm not denying their durability.

I've never had a slim PS2 give out on me, it's the fat ones that are unreliable. No one ever points this out.

I should start hunting down PS2 games if they're gonna get expensive at some point.

Free steam games codes.

I picked up Really Big Sky early on because it only required a Twitter. I don't have a Facebook and I'm not interested.

Really good over the top bullet hell shooter though, fully recommended.
