  1. Books, books, books...

    I think the real glaring flaw is that the author does not understand what they are attacking: every one of their criticisms can be placed on the backs of poor teachers and inappropriate teaching styles rather than the texts themselves.
  2. Steam Summer Sale Spendapalooza

    The Life is Strange deal isn't nearly as much as I was hoping for, but I still think I'll bite. And on Battleblock Theatre, too. Looks like crazy fun at 90% off!
  3. Agreed. It feels like a roundtable this year, whereas in years past it felt like a bunch of dudes, exhausted, collapsing onto a couch and chatting about whatever their sleep-deprived minds could handle.
  4. Pro-tip: you shouldn't really be boning your X. It'll only end in hurt feelings.
  5. Other podcasts

    Simon Parkin is a very cool, annoyingly intelligent dude. I'll have to check it out!
  6. Steam Summer Sale Spendapalooza

    I have not played KR0 and am unemployed... Is it really *that* good? Bear in mind I know v little about it (on purpose, so that when I do play it, it'll be new and fresh and exciting)
  7. That's my bad - I was under the impression they'd do a Day Zero one like in years past, after the first few conferences
  8. Life

    It isn't advice, but I go through the same exact anxiety shit w/ regards to texting and I entirely understand how you're feeling. If you figure out a solution, lmk.
  9. Books, books, books...

    Earnest is a perfect play in my opinion. What a brilliant piece of writing.

    I'll be that friend if you're asking.

    I sincerely hope that Life is Strange goes on sale, having heard the thumbs talking about it!
  12. Fallout 4 — Boston Makes Me Feel Good

    If I were to buy one for PC (considering I own 3 for 360 but never *really* played it), should I get 3 or NV? And should I get all the DLC with your choice?
  13. It's the consistency of it that kills me. And it also bugs me when they do it in Thumbs, but it's usually qualified by a "UH, I think, um, was it that one? I don't know! Let's say..." which makes it better in my mind,
  14. Actually, that's something that has bugged me in each of the Beastcast episodes so far -- in each one they get a fact wrong, asserting it as true, and never double-check. The most recent example was saying that MW3 was the CoD game with the dog, when in fact it was Ghosts. It's a little thing, but it's happened in each episode so far and each time it has bugged me.
  15. This most recent Beastcast *really* reminded me of early Thumbs. Hell, they even did the same dumb *let's all talk super quietly in order to seem like we're on some sort of wanky news show* joke. Good. Also, I really like Dan and think he's basically the best part of the Westcast. Yeah, I said it.
  16. You're breaking my brain, Malcolm. I definitely agree that the Red Room is timeless... and maybe you're right. I think it would be *incredibly* interesting for the new series of TP to start with the red room scene from S1E3, but reshot with the actors today -- suggesting that it's happening now, and Cooper of S1 actually does visit his future self in order to get the information of the killer from Laura.
  17. Charitable Thumbs

    Oh hey, I uh didn't see you there. On August 2nd, I plan on cycling 100 miles for the charity Save the Rhino as a part of the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100. It's going to be pretty intense. If you'd like to find out more, you can do so right here. Go on, click it. You know you want to see the promo video I hastily/lovingly recorded on my iPhone. So I figured this could be a charity thread for the future, in case anyone else does anything crazy/stupid, and wants to let this community know.

  19. Charitable Thumbs

    Oh jeez, I didn't even see that people had replied to this! Just thought I'd let you all know that it's now 2 months away, and I just managed my first 50 mile ride on Monday. Wasn't too bad, so I'm feeling pretty confident about the 100 Has anybody else done anything like a marathon, a bike ride, swim, iron man etc. for charity?
  20. Fallout 4 — Boston Makes Me Feel Good

    That Doom thing reminds me so much of this dumb shit:
  21. E3 2015

    Oh man the steam chat. I'm ready and excited for that.
  22. Life

    I see them as six kinda shitty movies, so I'm glad we're in agreement that they're all the same.
  23. Movie/TV recommendations

    I just finished watching Kingsman and sorely needed that movie. What a bunch of silly fun. As I said on Twitter too, I think that church scene may have just overtaken the scene from Blues Brothers as my favourite movie church scene. (Also: GREAT use of Freebird.)
