Re: My job sucks because...

I do in home consulting as a behaviourist for children with developmental disabilities (largely autism). It is deeply rewarding, pays very fairly, and is especially meaningful to me because I went through the same services on the other side as a parent of a child with autism. As an added benefit, it...

Re: Glorious spring

Winter didn't really set in here this year. My sons were riding their bikes and playing in the swings as often as sliding in December, January, and Februrary this year. I don't think anyone who owns a Skidoo has been happy this year, because I don't think there was enough snow for it at any point. I...

Re: Nintendo Is Being a Little Too Quiet

I don't think they're being quiet. I think, given their news feed and the online talk around it (much of which they must... encourage), I think they're pushing Nintendo Labo as their next "big" thing. Having put out Zelda, Mario, Mario Kart, and some Twitch friendly fighters, I think they ...

Re: Dave’s No Cursing Policy

Post modernism vs. Enlightenment rationality: Round 1 -- Fight! *gets popcorn* All I'm saying is that there are probably better arguments for swearing than trying to completely deny the concept of language. To be clear, I'm on your side. I'm not a post-modernist. I don't believe the perspective tha...

Re: Dave’s No Cursing Policy

I completely disagree with what people are saying. The whole concept of "bad words" is laughable. They are only bad because people say they are bad. Words are just soundwaves coming from our mouths. Why ban certain soundwaves and not others? Is this some kind of joke? The entire point of ...

Re: Dave’s No Cursing Policy

In the unlikely event any of us should ever meet in real life, apparently, I need to apologize in advance. I swear just a ton. It's not emotional language or stupidity or anything else. It's how lots of outport Newfoundlanders talk. We are descended from (and many of us still are) Irish fisherfolk a...

If a cat likes something, it might tell me the thing is evil and should be destroyed. Seriously, cats: pure evil.

Re: A good video to watch on the PS2 about it graphics and why it is more CRT focused/has more jaggies then rivals.

A little off-topic, but I notice I feel toward the Switch much like I do toward the PS2 right now. Anyone else getting this feeling? It has games people are raving about, but every time I play it, I feel like I'm playing either some android tablet or a third party Ps4 or something. I know it's "...

Re: Times the VGC steered you right... or wrong

-Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2 (Wii) - I felt burned by Super Mario Sunshine and was ready to give up on 3D Mario. The rave reviews around the internet for these games got me rethinking that, and then your reviews pushed me over the fence. I played and beat both of these games, but always felt like ...

Re: Governments do not like loot boxes!

In one state I am familiar with, those claw redemption games do have to be set for a certain payout, like 1:12 times A difference there is the usual outcome of claw machimes is losing, where the coin vending machine the usual outcome is winning something of lesser value. I think loot boxes always g...
