Re: Do you enjoy watching others play?

The only things I tend to watch seem to be Super Mario Maker videos (mostly enjoy the total randomness of the "super expert" levels and the chops of the players) and the occasional "tool assisted" Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 run...again, because it looks very random and extra-ordina...

Re: Is the Video Game Industry set for a Change

The main problem, as everybody knows, is that production costs for AAA videogames are spinning out of control. And it's not just the graphics or the content - nowadays a big game is expected to have Hollywood-quality dubbing, a 40 piece orchestra that plays 7 hours of soundtrack, unneeded online fea...

Re: Best Time of the Year for Gaming?

Personally my most prolific time of the year for gaming has always been late winter, February - March. I don't know why but I just took a look at the list of games I play every year (I have been writing them down in an excel file for more than a decade now) and Feb-Mar seems to be the time of the ye...

Re: Are E-sports Legit?

I have nothing against competitive gaming becoming a thing, but I think it's silly that they actually want to pass it for a sport, or even have it at the Olympic Games, which is utterly laughable. Yes there's big money in competitive gaming (although I have no idea where the money comes from - do th...

Re: Arcades, Game Rooms, & the Like.

Over here every snack bar had at least one arcade machine - often they would have an entire room dedicated to arcade games. That's because snack bars originally came from "osterie" (or what you would call "bodegas" I guess), places that sold wine but almost always had an extra ro...

Re: Cooking?

I love cooking and I've been doing ever since I was little. My mother used to work all day and taught me and my brother how to cook for ourselves at an early age. I think the easist thing to learn for people who want to start or have just started cooking would be pasta. Pasta is very forgiving with ...

Re: Favorite Albums of the 90s

Hey now, they make perfect sense to me considering I listed Teenage Fanclub and Talulah Gosh as personal favorites, which I rarely ever see anyone outside of Britain (besides me) ever mention. Beloved overseas, but no one cares about them in America. Lot's of great '70s, '80s, and '90s indie/altern...

Re: Favorite Albums of the 90s

A big shout to the guy who mentioned Lemonheads - I had completely forgotten about that record!! A few more that haven't been mentioned so far, off the top of my head (there's loads more though): The first two Verve albums, can't remember the names Magnetic Fields - 69 Love Songs (often criticised b...

Re: A biased articles on why people should get a PS4 and Pro over the Nintendo Switch!

I am sure the critic will not like this article, thoughts about this? It's a very fair article based on facts and aimed at a general audience that can only afford to buy one of the two consoles, preferably the one that guarantees the steadiest stream of relevant releases for the years to come and g...
