Is Smashers a real thing Smash Bros fans call each other? I guess you learn something new every day.

It's a super hard decision and it could change any day of the week, but I own more movies starring Stallone than anyone else. I have a deep fondness for the first three Rambo's, Cobra, Tango & Cash, Cliffhanger etc, but catch me on a different day I'll be telling you that The Last Boy Scout or Lethal Weapon 2 is the greatest action movie ever made.

My older sister had this weird Mario or nothing rule when it came to SMB2. I have no idea why she hated Princess Peach so much.

If you've seen Event Horizon already, you could instead watch the Even Horizon knock-off, Virus. I call it a knock-off, but, only sort of. It's very, very similar. Very similar. It has its moments though, but nowhere near as good as Event Horizon.

Virus is absolutely nothing like Event Horizon other than being a poor movie. But it's worth watching for some messed up practical gore and cyborg Donald Sutherland.

Get killed by other player spawn close by. Get killed by other player spawn close by. Get killed by other player spawn close by. Get killed by other player spawn close by. Get killed by other player spawn close by. Get killed by other player spawn close by. Get killed by other player spawn close by. Get killed by other player spawn close by.

Steal one of those big yellow monster trucks and drive over other cars, explode... then get killed by other player and spawn close by.

I feel like I'm in the minority when I say that I think Ico holds up a lot better than Shadow of the Colossus due to its simplicity. I had started it when the collection came out and only finished it very recently. I think I bought the HD collection as more of a curiosity as I had finished it on the PS2 close to 20 times I'm sure.

There's a lot more to be gained from multiple playthroughs and it's no secret that the combat is pretty bad until you can get the secret mace/ Lightsaber which makes it much, much more tolerable. I always loved that you can read Yorda's words on a second playthrough and you can get that secret Watermelon ending.

There is definitely a few platforming sequences in the final hour or so of the game that can test your patience, but that whole end stretch is haunting and beautiful. The battle with the queen is a real standout moment, and fits in perfectly despite being like no other section in the game. I adore the bit on the beach at the end.

@71ranchero: Nope, it's awesome. Played it for the first time last year. It obviously has some problems that could be remedied with a second stick. It has some really cool ideas that no other games have done like the backdraft dodging that requires you to listen to your surroundings and the navigator map lady. It also looks really cool, fantastic character designs.

This guy knows what's up. Also, it literally has the greatest theme song ever made.

And it's still awesome in both languages.

Fuckin right!

Burning Rangers will never let you down.

Yes. I remember the demo had a weirdly atmospheric bit of music that wasn't in the full game, but if you put the disc into a CD player you can hear it there. The PS1 version was the first version I ever beat.
