Re: Games that make you laugh

Road rash 64. It's the first game I remember with "rag doll" physics--meaning when you crashed, your body flew and flailed all over the place. It was hilarious to see yourself rocket 100 feet in the air and then go into a fetal position on the way down. Also, spraying guys with pepper spra...

Re: My daughter and I have gotten into Star Trek

Good timing. We finish III (return of Spock) and IV (voyage home) this weekend. I had a hard time getting into return of Spock, but I enjoyed voyage home quite a bit. That said, it's definitely the funny/goofy one of the series, and I wouldn't want another one like that. The more I watch, the apprec...

Re: What are you listening to right now?

My brother got to see Noel Gallagher the other day, so with that I mind, I've been into some old school Oasis lately. Call them what you will--arrogant, rude, etc--but those boys KNOW melody. Also, for the last year, I've been into this kid named Brett Dennen. Has a Van Morrison vibe that I like. I ...

Re: Super Metroid

Yeah, check out the GBA metroids next.... They're awesome. I agree about the wall jumping. When I first fell into that hole where those little guys show you how to do it, I couldn't figure it out. So....I would reset the game and try to figure out how to avoid that hole, which is impossible, of cour...

Re: Favorite YouTube Gamers?

Against my better judgement, I spent 2 hours learning about the infamous AVGN vs Irate Gamer fued. I came away from that still a AVGN fan and not an IG one, but man, that "Archfiend" guy may be my least liked character on YouTube.

Re: My daughter and I have gotten into Star Trek

Glad to see so many trek fans. The more I watch, the more I appreciate it--the characters are just perfect representations of the different types of people and the unity they can have in working together for a common goal. My daughter and I were playing hangman, and this was hers: "I have been,...

Re: Movies/TV you've exposed your kids to.

Yeah, my daughter is 9, and she is actually pretty fond of stuff that came out before I was born....Flipper, I dream of Jeanie, etc. We recently watched Raiders of the Lost Ark, but I made her look away from the ending (where everyone's faces melt off). We watched Jurassic Park yesterday, which I wa...

Re: Favorite YouTube Gamers?

My favorite is AVGN and James and Mike, though I admit I admit I'm an overall fan of James' work as a whole....not just the nerd videos. I tried JonTron, and while and I see the appeal and think it's pretty clever, it's a bit too hyper for me. Pewdie pie? I made it about 30 seconds. I actually prefe...

My daughter and I have gotten into Star Trek

I never gave it a fair shake growing up, but I enjoyed the last 2 recent movies (the JJ Abrams ones), and my 9 year old daughter stumbled across some old episodes on "meTV". After watching a few episodes and REALLY enjoying them, we have decided to work our way through the movies (though w...
