Mustang Sally. It means you're either at a bad wedding function, birthday or pub with a shit band or some bastard has picked it for Karaoke. It took me a while to decide between that and Sweet Child O' Mine.

Sweet Child brings back memories of strip clubs I used to go to. They'd put Sweet Child, November Rain or Metallica's "One" (What the fuck really?) for the slower songs the girls would gyrate and get naked to.

@AOR: I see that you're new. Welcome to da bomb.

Not new really... New to the forums, yeah. Been coming to Giantbomb ever since the whole Kane & Lynch debacle. Lurked the forums for about a year and just recently have started posting. Thanks for the welcome though, dude.

Why the hell would I acknowledge or remember any music I hate? That sounds ineffecient and depressing.

I hate accidentally purchasing Superman 64 over and over since I've never made it a point to remember things I don't enjoy. Efficiency and whatnot. Damn my brain for lacking the capacity to recognize unpleasant things! How will I ever strive to achieve any form or happiness or what could be seen as an avoidance of things I hate by surrounding myself with only the enjoyable ones? I'm doooomed.

Superman 64... that's a great album... Can't stand the singer though, damn sleazeball.

I'm guessing it's inefficient for you to try to decipher certain context and/or metaphor. Seems like the behavior of a religious person. I don't trust their kind.

I can rock a pretty decent beard if you give me three weeks. I recently shaved it all off. I'd gone around... Six months or so without shaving, the longest I'd ever gone actually. It feels weird not being able to chomp on my mustache hairs anymore.

I want you to try to recall every bad song you've ever heard and think hard about which one has caused you the most frustration and emotional pain. I think my most hated song of all time is Bow Wow Wow's "I Want Candy". There is nothing that puts a damper on my day more than seeing some ad with that song playing in the back or hearing it in some random convenience store. It is the bane of my existence and I give it the number one spot on my most hated songs list.

Seinfeld

Six Feet Under

The Wire

The Simpsons (It might have overstayed its welcome, but I loved it for a good six or seven straight years or so)

Lost (The ending was kind of meh but it was worth it for the great character development throughout its run)

I'd go with Portal 2 so far, but I really hope Child of Eden is good enough to become my GOTY. I've been way excited for it to come out!

KOF XII IS NOT AS BAD AS EVERYONE SAYS IT WAS JUST SHORT ON CONTENT THE SPRITES AND THE GAMEPLAY WAS PRETTY FUCKING GOOD

You can't be serious. The game was very unbalanced due to half of the roster being unfinished. Some characters had two super moves but some had just one, some characters had five special moves while others had just two. This isn't the sort of thing where Guile just has two moves because he's fucking Guile either. This was characters like Ralf, Leona, Chin, Kensou and Clark being gutted of their moves and being left with a couple that really weren't that useful. You compare that with other characters like Robert and Joe who granted, have always had a pretty extensive moveset completely dominating the competition. The gameplay was unbalanced, with Joe becoming KOFXII's Ryu online with people using him constantly due to his unstoppable flying knee kick. There were like four stages to fight on if you don't include their day cycle variants. The arcade mode was a joke (No end boss, really?), the online mode was total ass not just lag-wise but also UI-wise, with an interface system so clunky it resembled the shoddy ports of KOF 98, Garou: MotW and 2002UM SNKP put out.

It was a mediocre game, dude. The sprites were awesome and the fighting system was pretty enjoyable but man did it feel lacking. I'm a big fighting game fan and I've always loved the KOF games, so I was very very disappointed with XII. Here's to XIII hopefully correcting their past mistakes.

I was way hyped for KOF XII and was sorely disappointed once I got my hands on it. I've been keeping a close eye on this one and checking out a ton of videos so I'm fairly sure it'll be better than their previous attempt. Since Atlus is known for coming out with Special Collector's Edition versions for the games they publish, I'm trying to convince myself to not put down $150 once the game comes out with a Mai boob mousepad or some other ridiculous tie-in product.
