Someone should send him the 1986 Fist of the North Star movie. That's so incredible dumb that it's almost made for Dan, if he doesn't like that he probably won't like any anime.

I also take issue with Americans pronouncing it YO-she. Yoshi clearly says Yosh-ee, as do most people in England.

wait, really

No, it's actually pronounced Yosh. Like, if you were Yoshi's friend in high school and you were like, "Hey, Yosh!"

I'm not kidding. That's actually how it's pronounced in Japanese.

Don't know if this is just an obscure japanese language joke, but I still had to comment on it. While the word よし (yo-shi) can be pronounced Yosh in japanese (when meaning OK or All right), that's obviously not Yoshi's name. With correct japanese spelling Yoshi is named ヨッシー which directly translates to yosshii, but is pronounced YO-she.

But without the English diphtongized "o." I guess that's where much of that confusion comes from.

Yeah, I guess that's some of it.

Just to set things straight. It's less Jesse Pinkman:

And more kabuki theater (without all the extra o's):

I can't even bear to read it right now, but I know you're a damn trooper for keeping yourself enough together to write this. Huge respect and thanks for sharing.

Random Giant Bomb videos with chat sounds pretty cool to me, would definitely be a fun thing to have. Don't know if it's feasible to make, but it sounds super cool.

OP, your top 10 list contains 17 games. Just saying..

My top 3:

1. Timesplitters 2

2. Doom

3. Call of duty 4: Modern warfare

I also have to echo the statement, that games like Deus Ex, Portal and Borderlands doesn't really belong on a list of best first person shooters. They're hybrids and often more adventure/puzzle/rpg games in first person than actual shooters.

You can through all of Deus Ex without even shooting a gun for gods sake!

Just went 12-1 with this deck. Was pretty surprised, didn't do anything close to 12 wins before. I guess it would just the combination of getting lots of solid cards and getting better at the game.

Also Deathwing was amazing. When you're opponent don't have any cards left and you drop a 12/12 that clear the board, you're pretty much guaranteed to win.
