Re: Favorite Bassists

I had no idea that he played bass - I only knew him for his drum-and-bass music. He's awesome! The bass in his "drum and bass" (I think it could more accurately be considered jazz) is a highly processed bass guitar. Here's a little solo showcase from my favorite of his albums; it's the ba...

Re: Mario vs Donkey Kong Country

Diddy's Kong Quest is great, but Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World still kick its hairy hiney. I'll take Earthworm Jim and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 over all three, though, short as they are in comparison.

Re: Keep Politics out of video games

I personally don't agree with the article's premise that "movies are infused with politics." Something political to one person isn't political to another. I've seen a lot of online outrage about certain movies being political, but if I watched those same movies without reading the online ...

Re: Just how bad are the Star Wars prequels?

Lucas only actually directed the first of the original trilogy, which is great but is clearly the weakest of the original 3. It's not as good as The Empire Strikes Back , but it's a sight better than Return of the Jedi . A New Hope is the most focused and tight of the three; Return of the Jedi is h...
