Re: I Hate Button Mashers

I am not a fan of QTEs -- and, alright, forgive my blatant retro bias, but I have always seen button-mashing ability as one of the true marks of gamesmanship (think along the lines of traits like reaction time, etc.). Sure, you could use a turbo button for Track & Field, but the real test was to see...

Re: Goose

I've had quail and some other little bird, but no goose yet. Perfectly open to trying it when I come across the opportunity though. Hm.

Re: Need help from (very) knowledgeable gamers

The gold cartridge version of Majora's Mask with the "animated" label -- you know, those stereoscopic deals that display a few different frames of images as you view the object at different angles? That would make a slight difference in its favor, but someone needs to get in here with better inside-...

What did you like/love but everyone else disliked/hated?

The, uh, title should be pretty self-explanatory -- but what's a retro game that you always had a fondness for and everyone else thought you were crazy for enjoying it?

Re: Nintendo Gamecube, Any good? Best Games?

It is a viable console with some ultra-fun games, but should not be considered retro. Not yet, at least.

Re: Swearing in Games

Swearing in video games is akin to swearing in real life: It is relied upon far too often, people use it as a crutch to try and hammer a point when they could have just used a little more intelligence and creativity to select other effective words, it gets old very quickly, but it also has its place...

Re: Things you don't understand

In the English language, the past tense for the word "ride" is "rode" and for "slide" it is "slid."

Yet, for the word "glide," we resort to the awful two-syllable "glided."

Why can't it be "glode" or "glid"?
