I was raised damn near exclusively on country music through the early '90s, and luckily that was a great time to be listening to country. I'll echo the sentiment that contemporary stuff is too polished, it sounds like most of it is written in the hopes that they'll pull off some Shania Twain cross-genre hit. Without a hint of irony, the country station in GTA: San Andreas is the best radio station in any GTA game.

@darji: It sounds like you and the OP are of different minds about a few Wii U games, which is fine. OP had fun with NSMBU, the circumstances surrounding that game having practically zero bearing on that fun, and the knowledge that a steady stream of solid first party games was pretty much a given as it is a Nintendo console. I imagine the early days of the Miiverse alone were crazy enough for some to justify the expense. Hell, I'd have jumped in just on the strengths of the Podtoid takeover of the Raving Rabbits Miiverse.

You know what I like? Video games. You know, fun games that you can play alone or with other people. I'm in it to have fun. It's interesting to learn about how these games are made, and debate the merits of one platform over the other, but the bottom line for myself (and maybe @darthorange as well) is that I'll go wherever the fun is.

With that in mind, most of this thread is literally the worst thing in the world.

Twin Peaks, Twin Peaks, and don't forget Twin Peaks.

I'll be there again for a while, mang! That game breaks in some of the best ways I've ever seen towards the end.

For anybody interested I intend to continue the non-canonical adventures of Charlie Tunoku and Friends with more Nocturne this Thursday. It should be a lot of bleak fun!

There's also the OFFICIAL screen cap thread that I've started, so feel free to share any incriminating hilarious snaps you took over the weekend!

I was playing vidja with @fattony12000, @goodspaceguy, @amlabella, @chavtheworld, @moonwalksa, @moztacular, and @kloakindevice all last weekend for Child's Play, and it was a blast. Unfortunately, I weren't able to be Ctrl+PrntScrn-ing any of the proceedings as I was running around in a jungle of beer bottles, cabling, and multiple screens. So here's a nice repository for you to dump any of the dumb shit you caught us doing, that it might be dug up in years to come as a means of shaming myself and the others involved. Go!

I think I'm going to start a new thread to collect screen caps from everybody, so we can help preserve the legendary events of the last weekend. It should also be said that will have a more or less COMPLETE archive of the main stream! Just in case you want to want to watch myself and @goodspaceguy slog through Planescape Torment once again, that is now a thing!

It looks like I did in fact mess up with the whole AM/PM thing for donations! Whoops!

Also, I've just spent some time going through the donations. I'd like to be clear that I can only work with the information I have; we had over a hundred donations, and over $500 of our total came from anonymous or unlabeled donations! Totally cool, but that leaves me with just the labeled ones to count. I'm pretty sure this is solid information though. This was also a pretty involved mathematical process as well. Here's what I wound up doing:

  • Relearn how to use Libre Office Calc

The absolute top donor was none other than @cadwr with over $100 in contributions as part of his fight with #TeamEven! However, he was the donor for Bioshock Infinite and expressly asked that I we award it to the second place fellow. That individual would be... @username_undefined with an even $60 that came in a solid one-two punch! You managed to edge out several duders just below you, not to mention a lot of anonymous donations! Congratulations, I'll be sending you that Bioshock Infinite key promptly!
