OK so in the last week or two out of nowhere almost every video I watch on the site periodically (but regularly) starts to stutter like crazy - only the picture itself, the audio remains fine. It's very weird and basically unwatchable. Anyone else getting this or have any suggestions?

This has been happening using the HTML5 player in HD in Chrome on both Windows 7 and Mac OSX.

Finding and hugging Vinny will of course be at the top of my list, worry not.

By the way I forgot to mention, I'll be staying at the Cosmo hotel on 95 W Broadway. Thanks for the suggestions so far guys!

Hey guys - I'm from Ireland but my new job is sending me out to NY for training for a couple of weeks at the end of June.

The typical tourist-y type stuff isn't really my thing, not super into just sightseeing for the sake of it.

So, I'm asking the locals and those who have visited NY before - what are the best things to do, check out, and most importantly: eat, in order to make the most of the experience and get a 'real' feel for the city?

Lost it when you started whistling the Bombcast theme. Great work.

Your edited OP does nothing but make you come across as being a preachy dickhead without any reason or provocation. Just a heads up.

I am so, so tired of every games site I look at having articles and discussion about this stuff every day. That's not saying I don't believe it's an issue but come on, it's gotten god damn ridiculous.

Python is an excellent and frequently recommended first language, though I think Java is a good option too.

Games, especially simple ones such as text-based stuff, can be made in literally any language so don't feel too much pressure regarding which language to learn first - if there's one thing you learn with time as a programmer its that the language doesn't really matter much provided you know how to think about programming problems the right way.

Needs more emancipation.

Looks alright to me, and if you're anything like me you'll probably be tempted in to starting fresh with a new character some day anyway. A first run through Dark Souls is always gonna be more about learning all the ropes and intricacies than about doing it "right" or worrying about very specific builds.
