  1. I was going to get a second FC30, but man those yellow ones do look very nice....
  2. I'm glad I'm not the only person that couldn't play it in big chunks - there is one enemy in the game that really creeps me out hah.
  3. Man, those are some snazzy controllers, looks like a pretty interesting alternative to the $70 pro controller! Picking up Zelda again, I need to finish up with one dungeon and then on to Gannon, looking forward to wrapping it up. I also beat Binding of Isaac for the first time yesterday on the train, that remains to be a weird game.
  4. Anyone playing anything recently? I picked up 7 Wonders: Duel which ahs been nice to break open, i also picked up the X-Wings Miniature game core sets to test out, looks interesting!
  5. Oh man, it'll be my first Monster Hunter game - pretty excited!
  6. Yeah, I don't know to me it sounds like the arrogance is on the other foot here, I think it's kind of arrogant of the fan base to think their individual critiques or criticisms should be addressed by the boys. I'm sure they get criticism directed at them literally all the time via Twitter, I don't blame them for getting defensive at times. I feel like there is a weird assumption that everyone creating content for the internet should be wholly receptive of criticism/feedback all the time. I don't think it's arrogant if Katy Perry doesn't respond to my last 100 tweets critiquing her latest single, why would I assume MBMBaM would be any different? The fact is they probably aren't super well equipped to handle their own popularity. I think part of the reason they are so popular is that they all wear their hearts on their sleeve which probably makes the popularity and criticism via social media pretty hard to deal with. I don't think your criticisms are wholly off-base, they obviously come from someone who enjoys their content for the most part, but I'm not sure it's on them to try to please the world. I don't think TAZ is my thing anymore, but I wouldn't say it's arrogant for Griffin to continue what he is doing since there are obviously a ton of people that enjoy it. I don't think it's arrogant of Justin to tell the world how proud he is of his little brothers hard work, whether or not I agree with it.
  7. Congrats!
  8. I don't follow all of their stuff, but I would probably argue that most content creationtm is self-indulgent and it's usually made better for it because you generally want people creating content their passionate about (see Idle Thumbs and Important If True). I can totally see arrogance being a driving force behind something @Patrick R describes, because I'm sure you get to a certain point and think "why should I work on this joke/this delivery when I know I'll hit it out of the park and people will love it?" I'm all about creators getting buck wild about things they are into because at the end of the day it's up to the audience to decide if it's for them or not.
  9. Yeah, that's my current predicament. There is a lot of baking I'd love to do, but I'm hesitant to spend the $250 for a stand mixer. @root your pretzels look dope!
  10. It's kind of awesome how much the dynamic changes when going from solo -> a group. I spent ~5 hours with a random guy on my friends list on Saturday and had a super awesome time, I am a bad duo player though. I am way more brash when I know I have a partner but when I am playing solo I rarely fire my gun unless I know it will be a kill and I'll be able to escape. Hell, in the solo game I won I only killed 3 people. I think I've only killed ~12 people over 6 or so hours because i rarely fire my gun, I'd rather be sneaky and work on my positioning so if it comes to a gun fight I'll have an upper hand.
  11. You're the devil. Learning how easy and cheap it is to make fresh, awesome bread has been very difficult for me and my carb intake, hah!
  12. Oh god, I remember searching for that damn thing for hours and never finding it. I am so tempted to reinstall it and boot it up for nostalgia's sake. That game really takes me back to a very specific time and place in my life.
