What, you weren't expecting that? The Furry community took over that field years ago. But it'll be ok. Drown the images you just saw with lots of alcohol. Lots and lots of alcohol.

Here you go. These are some of the episodes and shorts from the show. Some hilarious stuff in there.

They would take horrible movies and make fun of them the entire time. Seriously, this show was great.

Seriously, one of the best shows ever on American TV.

I never had any Sega consoles. We were strict Nintendo folks up until Sony threw their hat in the ring. Before August, I had never owned a Sega console.

Now I'm quite happy with my Saturn, and I'm hungrily eyeing a Dreamcast.

In my opinion? Yes and no. We'll start with the nos first. Specifically, one factor stands in the way: controller wear. Because of its design, the N64's controller will inevitably wear away to uselessness. While that's ok right now(you can buy replacement sticks), this will not be the case forever. ...

You want proof EA is evil? Call their tech support. All I'm saying.

I see no mention of the ship from Spaced Invaders.

Stateside it's kinda cold. Well, for us at least. I live in the Deep South, so cold is considered anything less than 50 F. Yeah, weak, I know...

Hate to say it, but I once got so mad at my copy of Super Mario 64, I bit the cartridge. I'm not the biggest fan of platformers, and my 64 controllers all need their sticks replaced, so I'd gotten a bit fed up. After falling off the same cliff five times in a row, I killed the power, pulled the cart...

I don't know...every now and again I see something this generation that I'd like to play. Titles like Dead Space, Silent Hill V, and Fallout 3 interest me. But there's just so much great stuff that I missed in previous generations, I have trouble keeping up with it all.

Silver Surfer on the NES really pisses me off.

Ultraman for the SNES was really bad too.

Thanks very much! Judging from the review neither really seem to be fighters, so I suppose I shouldn't worry about them. I really appreciate it!

Thanks very much! I'm glad I've got almost all the regular fighters down(with a few exceptions of differing versions of the same game), but I've still got a couple questions about specific titles. It labels Hokuto no Ken as an Adventure game and Tactical Fighter as Simulation. While I've seen a coup...

I actually own it. It's not so bad when you've got somebody to play with...and you're drunk. My biggest problem? Quick enemy recovery and hit detection seems off. A group as small as 3 enemies is practically a deathtrap in that game. And the game tends to throw them in groups of 3 or greater. Such a...

I've been spending lots of time with Samurai Shodown III on the Sega Saturn lately. I'd kinda written it off when I first tried it and the CPU wiped the floor with me. But I went back, and despite it's flaws I'm enjoying it.
