  • I am seriously considering to capitalise the ¨a¨ and ¨fan¨ in my username. What do you guys think: should I do it or is my username great as it is?
    Every night again, when I hop into my warm comfy bed, I hope that I will have an awesome dream about my favourite video game characters going into a wild adventure. But everytime I wake up in the morning, I can hardly remember anything about a dream. And if I do have one, it's always about some shitty real-life event that happened to me. Hmpf :(
    Someone on youtube once remarked about how the ¨bah¨-sound in the overworld theme of NSMB Wii sounds like ¨fuck¨ and now I can't unhear it.

    Bah... Never liked the sound to begin with, so that just 'improves' it for me whenever I have to listen to it in Smash Bros.

    I actually like it, but not the in the NSMB 2 overworld theme which sounds as if it was sung by Minions.

    Nothing personal but... I find your current signature really obnoxious. It's funny seeing it the first time... but after having to see it over and over while trying to read your posts it gets really distracting.
    Can't you make it smaller at least? Like... a lot?
    You know what I consider the most overused cliché in all of fiction? The ¨parents-are-dead¨ trope. Seriously, sometimes it seems as if there are more children in fiction without parents than with parents, especially in RPG's and comics. But not all cases of this are bad or unoriginal. I really like A Series of Unfortunate Events for example.

    That series is really good at using tropes and clichés simply because it has the perfect balance of taking itself seriously and not taking itself seriously at all. Even the most played out clichés can be fun in that series because it's so self-aware about it.

    Alot of the jrpgs Ive played, the main character has one living parent, and another who was tragically murdered somehow and the hero has to get revenge for it : p Also amnesia, SOMEONE has it. In like every other rpg someone cant remember something important.
    Super Mario Bros, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Game Boy... Nintendo used to be obsessed with the word super, didn't they?

    I remember when the GBA was dying out in 2007 and retail stores were getting rid of stock and throwing out old promotional signs/tags.

    I was in a K-Mart store I frequented, and I ripped off a "Life Advanced" store banner which had decorated the GBA game shelf since 2001 or 2002. Yeah, Angler is a filthy thief. Heheh. I knew it was destined for the dumpster out back. Just a little memento from an ending era.

    ....You wouldn't do that to your former gang leader, would ya, MW? You can't put me back in the joint for ripping off a measley GBA sign ten years ago! I can't stand another day of that "cuisine" they serve at the Cook County Jail!
    Is it just me or have both the ESRB and PEGI become more and more strict over the years?

    What are some examples since I never pay attention to game ratings.

    This doesn't apply just to ratings but also to the censors that are linked to them.

    Minor blood/gore being changed from red to green in zelda ocarina of time(along with a certain song), dragon quest journey of lost king had to get a censor for one of the female lead's outfits to prevent a higher rating. Waifu emblem head patting. I'm too lazy to look up more I forgotten.

    EDIT: if you really want to look up more, just go to the ESRB official site and search for old and new games, you'll notice some patterns

    NSMB1 got a pegi 12 on Virtual Console because of one minigame of poker against Luigi. Ridiculous to say the least.
    You know what I never understood about the Gameboy Color? Why didn't it have any backlighting? I mean, the colour thing is fine and all, but what does that matter when there isn't enough light to make these colours shine like they ought to do? By the way, which developing team was even responsible for the development of the GBC?

    I don't think the technology was truly around and flexible as what we have today. Maybe it was expensive too. Backlight only came to nintendo handhelds late GBA SP.
    Have you had a listen to that song you requested? The one from MvDK2?

    Is it strange that I like the products of certain companies, but not the company itself? Because I sometimes have this feeling about Nintendo.

    I feel you man! I know what you mean and I don't like microsoft, but I prefer windows over mac. It's just certain things we've grown to love we can't let go. There's also the opposite, for instance, I like Sony, but I find more first party game of theirs boring.

    So... how about the Emoji Movie? Is it really as terrible as people say? Or is it at least decent enough to be worth the money for a cinema ticket?

    I haven't seen it, but I'd estimate that it won't even be worth the energy to see it in a cinema.

    In my opinion i saw it being heinously anus from the start, and its still worse than i thought. It had one funny joke but other than that its just a rip off of The Lego Movie and Wreck It Ralph but with zero substance. Don't even watch it ironically like i thought to do. Just avoid it its not worth the time.

    What was the funny joke? :p
    I recently picked up Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels on my 3DS again and I was instantly reminded of how hard this game is. I can barely make it to world 2 without getting a game over. I can understand why Nintendo decided to release SMB2 outside Japan as the official sequel. Appearently the American and European gamers are not as hardcore as the Japanese.

    Wait until you play, Mario Advance 4 with the e-reader levels.

    That whole assumption about Japanese gamers being more "hardcore" is baloney. There are too many instances when games have been modified to be easier for the Japanese market, and I've read on more than one occasion from Japan that they're put off by overly hard games.

    Yeah, but after a game over, you can actually continue in the same world.
    That's why Super Mario Bros. 2 Japan is my favourite 2D Mario, it features game overs that actually have a substantial impact, but they don't send you back to the very start. :)
    Has anyone ever noticed that video game characters look much different from behind? I found this out myself when I was looking trough some pictures of Mario. It has likely something to do with the fact that we don't see them often from that direction, especially not in artwork.

    Um. Something like 80% of Mario 64, Mario Sunshine, Mario Galaxy, etc. has you facing away from the camera. You look at Mario from behind for so much of the game.

    Yeah that's true, but I was mostly referring to non-3D platformers, like Wario Land.

    Oh, well, yes, in that case, I agree, now that I have context.
