Hey everyone, not exactly sure where to post this but I have a question for everyone.

I have been trying to rack my brain and look up past quicklooks and subscriber videos to find this but I can't seem to locate it, so here it goes.

What is the term that Vinny uses where in a game like Metroid you start with all of your gear and then loose it all a few hours in only to have to collect it one by one throughout the game.

I hope you guys know what I'm talking about, it's one of the great many Vinnyisms he's used over the past few years.

One of the aliases is "Castroiding", which sounds suspiciously similar to "castrating". So some video games are like castration in that they take away all your equipment before you have a chance to use it much.

Pretty sure it was first mentioned on a podcast a LONG time ago. Within the first year, easily.

I don't think he invested abilitease. I have heard it for a long time.

So while we're talking about Abilitease, do you guys think final fantasy X should be on that list? I mean you have Auron for the first hour(ish?) and it's pretty clear he's over leveled.
