  1. E3 2015

    Other M came out in 2010 and this is the second time since that they've "scratched that itch" with a multiplayer minigame that focuses on shooting mechanics rather than exploration, which is much more important to Metroid. The game's been getting more vitriol than it's probably worth, but it's pretty easy to see why it would be unwelcome.. Initial impressions for Star Fox Zero have been coming in from the show floor and they seem overwhelmingly negative. That' disappointing, but kind of on-par with the seriously spotty record those games have.
  2. Cartoons!

    Steven Universe is back, guys! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubHWqSLujns The first returning episode was great. Really developing Connie and Pearl a lot.
  3. Happy Birthday!

    Happy birthday, Famous! You share a birthday with Dan Ryckert!

    The Nintendo thing, in a nutshell.
  5. E3 2015

    A brief aside about the Ubisoft conference: holy shit, what the fuck happened with that Assassin's Creed cosplayer? Aisha Tyler is fucking sitting there asking what his deal is and he's all "oh, they just asked me to come dressed as this Jacob guy." Like, this guy who was fucking planted there to do a bit about being a huge fan managed to immediately fuck it up so bad that it included an admission that he had been paid to be there.
  6. Jurassic World: Wasting away in Margaritaville

    That looks incredible.
  7. E3 2015

    You missed the part where it crashed and we got to watch Nathan Drake stand in place for a full minute and had to restart it. Pretty rad otherwise. Nintendo was honestly kinda disappointing? Star Fox was the only mainline entry in an existing series, there were no new IPs, and literally everything else they showed was eiher something we'd already seen before (Super Mario Maker, Yoshi's Wooly World) or a smaller spin-off game. It's all the monkey's paw version of what I want. also, fucking Nier 2 holy crap

    For anyone who wasn't watching it live, the end of this trailer immediately cut to someone in a Garden Warfare 2 zombie mascot costume dancing to "Danger Zone" by Kenny Loggins. It was the highlight of the show.

    Vinny from Giant Bomb suggested doing the dorkiest possible version of that thing where people eat sushi off of naked women.
  11. The Nintendo Wii U is Great Thread

    You missed watching amateurs play Splatoon with commentary by Youtubers and the children of Youtubers!

    As someone who never really got into Fallout, all the Fallout 4 stuff seemed like basically just a feature list, and not one that seems particularly exciting or inventive. crafting system dog character customization basebuilding tower defense thing second screen experience that you won't use spinoff iOS game plastic shit in the collector's edition that you won't use Not really feelin' it.
  13. The Nintendo Wii U is Great Thread

    So for anyone who missed it yesterday, before the Nintendo World Championships... I'm amazed that they managed to do the trademarking and ESRB registration without anyone noticing and spoiling the surprise ahead of time. Also, that NWC was a lot of fun, even if it was pretty rough at times. I feel like it's probably a good idea to brief all your commentators on how to pronounce your contestants' names in advance, especially your celebrity guest contestant.

  15. I need that tiny Isabelle.
  16. Feminism

    One of my favourite things to do when I want to feel bad about geek culture is to do a search on the ThinkGeek store for the word "tactical." Most of them are just garbage meant as a joke or to satisfy gross military fetishization. Every single item that could kill someone is described as being "for the zombie apocalypse," as are the survival gear items (the ones meant for doomsday preppers, not campers). Few alternative uses are given for the ones that are clearly meant as weapons, and they tend to sound ridiculous when they do (the blurb for the M48 Tactical Survival series recommends using the harpoon knife to open your fucking mail). The worst by far is the Uzi Tactical Defender Pen. Unless you're a magician or a bondage fetishist I can guarantee there is no situation in your life that is going to be improved by owning a concealed handcuff key.
  17. Jurassic World: Wasting away in Margaritaville

    note: I'm pretty sure she's the first woman to die in one of these because there have literally only been 2 women with speaking roles in each film.
  18. Jurassic World: Wasting away in Margaritaville

    I just learned that furry sex toy company Bad Dragon (as mocked on the internet!) released a T.Rex dildo called "Tyrannosaurus Sex" to coincide with the movie, modeled like some kind of weird muscular appendage since I'm pretty sure there actually aren't any fossilized dino schlongs to base it off of. The promotional image has it sitting next to a coke can, being triple its size and many times its girth. Life finds a way.
  19. Too bad the stupid mixlr keeps cutting out for fifteen minutes for every one minute of actual audio they manage.
  20. tegan confirmed for Wizardjam 2
  21. Movie/TV recommendations

    Keep with it. Steven Universe has long since eclipsed Adventure Time in terms of my enjoyment of each.
  22. Jurassic World: Wasting away in Margaritaville

    For a brief moment I thought this movie might be alright, because it has a fairly high Rotten Tomatoes score, but then I started reading the review pull quotes and it's like everyone simultaneously decided to lower their standards just for this movie. ...And my personal favourite... The highlight of every single positive review is this sort of hilariously unenthusiastic or sarcastic praise, and it's like that across the board. It's so weird.
  23. Life

    Takin' you up on that offer! I'll be adding more to the page as I go along. Expect BIG THINGS in the future!
  24. Comics Extravaganza - Pow Bang Smash!

    Sorry, Sigg. So I read Fun Home the other day. Daunting read. I especially liked the way that each chapter is filled with comparisons to a specific book and what it meant to Bechdel and her father. EDIT: holy shit, there's going to be a Nimona animated film. This is right after Lumberjanes got picked up for a live-action movie. It is a good time to be Noelle Stevenson.
